I was pretty impressed by top male model, Baptiste Giabiconi landing a cover on L'officiel Hommes China for the April issue (Seriously, since when Karl Lagerfeld ever let him off his side before?)
And, I was even more impressed by the spread where it was a tribute to the top music icons in history like Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson. I felt that Baptiste did a good job bringing out the essence of each musicians.
Until i saw this...

Oh my Lord... I don't even know what to say. They placed Lady Gaga along with the Music Legends? So is Gaga a history now? But if so, why Gaga? I think its still too early to hail her as an icon. There are so many talented female artists worth to pay tribute to, like Patti Smith or even Karen O. Geez, I bet Madonna is going to be mad.
Maybe in China, Lady Gaga is the only female artist that they really know. Urgh.
Then again, Gaga might be mad too, because Baptiste's impersonation of her made me wanna wear pants and shut my legs tight all the time.
My friend said that i'm someone who loves to keep things to myself and when i kept it for too long, i'll just erupt into a giant crater swallowing up everything.
Well, i need time to reflect on the things that was said or done to me. I have to go through it so that i can make sense of what's going on and where does my fault lies.
I've been keeping this for too long and now i don't want to choose any of my words with discretion anymore.
People just conveniently dismissed me as bad-tempered. Yes, i'm bad-tempered but i don't get irritated without any reasons. Why can't you realised that if only you can just shut your mouth and stop wasting time on being fickle-minded, it can make things so much easier?
Don't just victimised me just because i'm raising my voice a lil'. And don't give me reasons that you're a girl. Blah. You girls only know how to expect guys to be nice, patient and gentlemen all the time. How far back do you want to go? Do you still want to be able to vote? Do you still want to be able to wear pants?
Secondly, it is stupid having to know, lets say, what people are listening to these days, so as to be able to relate to them. I'm not a big fan of Lady Gaga but that doesn't i'm not capable of holding a good conversation to someone who is a fan. Why does what we listen to have to be dictated as well? Do you understand what does it really mean to relate? To relate goes beyond what a person listen to or what the person do. I want listen, watch and read on whatever i like.
Lastly, i know of the stereotype that you guys have put on me. So what if i'm one? Don't claim to be so loving and all when you can't accept me for who i am. If i have to put on a mask whenever i'm with all of you, i'd rather stay at home and sleep.
I was just browsing through my massive collections of pictures when i came across a spread for FHM Collections Germany (not to be confused with the cheesy FHM man magazine you see in the new stands.)
Of course, i'm very late at this cause this spread was publish on the Fall/Winter 2009 issue but i thought i should post it up because every men should be comfortable in being sexy. Not the 'Singapore Calendar Guy' kind of sexy but more of being comfortable in their own skin, sensual and with a huge dose of naughtiness that come along with it.

Who says sexy full lips are only limited to the girls? Judging from these pictures, the guys wear it better, especially the gap-tooth beauty Oscar Spendrup in the last pic.
PS I completely forgot about February Obsession! So sorry, didn't know that time passes so fast. Do look out for March Obsession =)
