BIELFIELD – MANHATTAN

US expat Kyle Bielfield is an opera singer by trade and a pop star by design. Finally, his debut album arrives and, strangely, it’s almost exclusively a covers album suggesting some record company compromising. There’s one original, Lady, while the rest showcases his classically trained instrument (ie, his golden voice). The covers are as disparate as A-ha’s ‘80s synth classic Take On Me and recent Latin chart-topper Despacito. In between there are songs made famous by Whitney Houston (I Have Nothing), Michael Jackson (Human Nature) and even Toto’s soft-rock staple Africa. Quite what they have to do with Manhattan is anyone’s guess but, according to Kyle, “this album helps bring together what I’ve been showing over the past few years. I’ve done the pop career, earned my stripes on stage and this is now about arriving as a fully formed artist”. Could we just request a whole album of originals next time please?

About DNA Magazine

What will we be watching, dancing to, wearing, eating and slipping our fingers into in 2018? Our trend spotters preview all that’s new and exciting for the coming year. Speaking of big things… meet Luke Pearce, our cover model. The New York-based model/personal trainer loves sport, the outdoors and helping others achieve their best in the gym. We have 8 stunning pages of Luke in this issue by photographer Rick Stockwell. What’s it like being a webcam performer with thousands of fans around the world who regularly log-in to watch you, er, log off? We meet one of the web’s most popular “sexhibitionists” who claims he’s really very shy. You be the judge. Some people might say Star Trek has always had a queer-ish bent but now it has a gay male couple as leading characters. We find out what changed in the Trek universe after all these years that has allowed some long-overdue LGBTI content. Hector De Silva – you may know that name from several of the world’s leading adult websites, but away from the bump and grind of his “day job”, Hector is a humble Spanish farmer and fire-fighter. We visit him on his family farm and find out how his family and neighbours feel about living with an internationally famous gay porn star. Coming out – if you’re a celebrity there’s a right way and a wrong way to come out. Kevin Spacey did it wrong, but there are plenty of better examples. We look at some of them and face some awkward questions head on. Plus, win a gay honeymoon in Vienna, Austria. Find out what Courtney Act thinks of some of her Drag Race co-stars, check out Gay Chef, Jordan Bruno’s avocado smash, meet International Mr Leather’s first Muslim contestant and more!
