You may not have heard of Sarah Sunday but pretty soon she’ll be a name you’ll never forget. Her latest single, ‘Mental Zoo’, has more than a touch of Avril Lavigne to it, and this should come as no surprise, as Sarah counts the Canadian songstress as among her influences, which also include such legends as Debbie Harry, and other iconic female vocalists.
This week has been a fairly active one… it’s quite literally flown by! I recently got interviewed by ‘GuysLikeU’ and they did a piece on myself…life, love, career etc, which was quite nerve-wracking and exciting but it got some really sweet comments from friends and family…a lot of people were saying to me “I didn’t know that about you” but I feel that’s a common thread for me…I’m quite secretive with myself in some areas so it felt nice to open up a little bit…I would be lying if I said it wasn’t uncommon in the gay community to share penis pics and whilst I’ve never really sent them before, I have received a fair amount in my time and on Saturday morning; I felt bold as brass and took my first ever full length nude photo and sent it…I’m not Vanessa Hudgens, so if it were to “‘leak” it would have very little impact on myself but it was exhilarating and the guy I sent it to really enjoyed it…so that’s been a bit of a perk for my confidence.
‘Head Above Water’ is the first album from Avril Lavigne since her self-titled release in 2013, and the first since her diagnosis with Lyme Disease in 2014. It’s also the first album she’s released on BMG, where she’s now recognised as a “Legacy Artist” at the tender age of 34; given she’s been a recording artist for almost half her age, it’s not a bad place to be.
With Valentine’s Day on it’s way…I’m interested to know about what everyone’s up to? I read about this heart sausage that M&S were doing that looked super scrumptious however it’s mixed with truffle and I’m not the biggest fan of truffle; so I think this year, I’ll give that one a miss. My most romantic Valentine’s Day was probably long walks along a beach front with my then-partner…I haven’t really been that lucky in love to have a series of great Valentines, but the beach-front walks were certainly romantic and sweet…with a brisk wind and a look of adoration from your partner, mixed with a portion of chips to share; it really is the simple things sometimes. I have made a silent rule to myself to put myself “out there” more this year in terms of dating… normally I go on one date with a guy and get really hung up on him, but this year, I’m allowing myself the opportunity to explore.
