Gay porn star Kaleb Stryker is asking Shawn Mendes for permission to play him in a XXX parody video on Men.com.

The popular gay porn studio recently revealed that the 21-year-old singer-songwriter was the most searched name on its website in 2019. “Even though [Mendes] is obviously not featured in any Men videos, our members took it upon themselves to verify that fact by entering his name in the Men.com search bar,” a studio representative explained. “Kaleb was intrigued by the idea of developing and starring in a Shawn Mendes porn parody, guitar and all, truly giving our members what they want!”

“I just found out my look-alike Shawn Mendes is the most popular search on Men.com in 2019, so that means I’m not the only one crushing on him,” says Stryker in a video posted to YouTube. “So, Shawn, what do you say we give the people what they want? If you’re cool with it, I can play you as a role on Men.com, and we can make everyone’s fantasies come true. So what do you think?”

Mendes has previously said he is not gay and wants people to stop speculating about his sexuality.

In an interview with Britain’s Daily Star, dancehall legend Shaggy revealed that he was asked to collaborate with Rihanna on her upcoming reggae-inspired album but he turned it down. He explained, “They approached me for the Rihanna project, yeah. There’s a lot of great people involved, but for me, I didn’t need to audition to be on the record, I’ll leave that to younger guys.”

He added, “But from what I hear it should be good!”

On RiRi’s venture into dancehall, he said, “It’s a healthy competition. Dancehall is in a good place but we need as many people to do this art form as possible. When it crosses over and becomes popular with artists from other genres and other cultures, that can only be good.”

RiRi told Vogue about the album last year, “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album. It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae.

TINA FEY AND AMY POEHLER TO HOST GOLDEN GLOBES: The Oscars are going host-free, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are taking on the Golden Globes for 2021, the pair revealed Saturday. The pair hosted for three years in a row, ending in 2015. The 2020 Globes were hosted by Ricky Gervais.


On Sunday, the biggest stars of film and TV showed up for the 25th Annual Critics’ Choice AwardsTaye Diggs did the hosting duties for the second year in a row, and the show aired live on the CW from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. 

The biggest shocker of the night was a tie for Best Director between Sam Mendes and Bong Joon Ho, for 1917 and Parasite, respectively. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood won big for film, landing Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt’s work, while Joker snagged Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix’s role and Judy won Best Actress for Renee Zellweger’s work. 

Going in, Netflix ruled the show, earning 61 nominations total. On the film side, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman was the most nominated film of the year, with 14 nods.

On the TV side, When They See Us led, followed by This Is Us and Schitt’s Creek. Fleabag won Best Comedy and Succession won Best Drama, and Best Actor for Jeremy Strong’s role.

There were another two surprise ties for Best Talk Show between The Late Late Show with James Corden &Late Night with Seth Meyers and then for Best Song between “Glasgow (No Place Like Home)” – Wild Rose &  “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” – Rocketman. Last year, as viewers may recall, Lady Gaga and Glenn Closetied for Best Actress.

In addition to the TV and Film accolades, the Critics’ Choice awarded Eddie Murphy with a Lifetime Achievement Award, in honor of his achievements, including starring in multiple $100 million+ films over the past three decades. He is only the third actor to receive the award, after Lauren Bacall and Kevin Costner. Kristen Bell won the See Her Award for her work in empowering women through her work and her roles. 

Observers say the nominations of the Critics’ Choice Awards often prove prescient for Oscar nominations: last year, seven out of the eight Oscar nominees in the top category matched those up for the Critics’ Choice prize. Winners diverge a bit more; the two groups picked the same Best Picture six out of the most recent 10 times. Last year, Critics’ Choice went to Roma, but the Oscars went with Green Book. More than 350 members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association voted on prizes, as did members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. The Oscar nominations will be revealed today.
