Sam Smith Plus A Class And Trash Reunion

PARTYYYIIIIIIIING!

fun

Okay, let’s focus on Sam Smith, everyone’s new favorite singer. We here at Class & Trash are definitely fans. He’s got a lovely voice and sings the kind of songs that make you cry on Sunday nights.

Here are two of the bops.

Stay With Me

Proceeds to ugly cry.  Sam’s voice is so haunting and he portrays such a sense of longing for that human connection despite looking for it in the wrong place. So freaking good.

Latch

Switches into a bop and snap.  I love songs with a distinctly 80’s influence and this is no different.  Come through.

But really this post about the reunion of Class & Trash.  Throw in our love Sass, The Asian Sensation, and Devin who frequently comments and you will hear from soon and you have the recipe for a super shady, super hilarious, and amazing weekend.  And it’s all leading up to the On The Run tour on Tuesday where you will get both of our reactions.

But we’re trying to get to brunch.  So say hey!  Reach out on the Twitter page.  You might see up dropping it low if you’re in Atlanta.

The Purge with Class, Trash, & Asian Sensation

So I just saw a commercial for the Purge Anarchy and thought that this would be a fun quickie post.  And since Asian Sensation is here, she’s going to join me! The challenge is to come up with the first three people you’re taking out if the purge actually happened?

Let’s get started!

Asian Sensation

1) Rihanna

poitup

 

She’s just a terrible human being.  She can’t really sing.  I don’t love her music.  She’s a cyber bully.  An attention whore.  And I just don’t like her.

Don’t call people “Rice Cake.”  I’m Asian.  That’s racist.

Also, don’t come for Ciara.  THE. END.

2) Miley Cyrus

 

 

smashing!

Also an attention whore.  She needs to stop twerking. White people!  She didn’t invent twerking!  Please cover up your pancakes.  (Her weirdly shaped butt). Stop grinding up on married men.

3) Johnny Manziel

manziel

You’re the king of the douchebags.

Trash

1) Kirk Frost

Rasheeda-and-Kirk-Frost-SFTA-2

 

The epitome of the ain’t shit men who get away with less than shit.  The kind of simpering, chapped lipped, pleather wearing asshole who eats paste.

2) Ann Coulter

hourse

 

It’s one thing to be an asshole for Cable News checks.  It’s another to continue to speak when your 15-minutes of fame has run out and the only reason we still hear from you is because Twitter is free.

3) Everyone Who Hasn’t Washed Their Hands after using the Restroom.

lilnasty

Class

1) The President of FedLoan 

bills

I’m clearing my debt.  Enough said.

2) Taylor Swift

tayryu

I’m taking out Taylor Swift.  Stealing her money.  And returning her Grammy for Album of the Year to the right owner.  Beyonce for “I Am Sasha Fierce.”

3) George Zimmerman

zim

Cuz we ain’t forgot.  NUCCA.

Share your list party people!

Class And Trash Jams: Beyoncé

It’s time to announce a new series here on your favorite site.  So because we’re committed to increasing the quality of your iPods, we’ve decided to share a few of our favorite jams for a particular artist each week.

Because Class picked the artist for this first week, it’s time to talk about Beyoncé.

Trash

1) Yoncé/Partition

Despite my next two choices, I love Beyoncé most when she embraces her hood side.  This song in particular changed my entire view on Beyoncé,  moving me from casual fan to staunch defender/junior associate Beyhive member.  The rap >>>>>>

2) Smash Into You

My absolute favorite of Beyoncé’s love songs. She delivers vocally and it’s simply a beautiful song.

3) Love On Top

5 KEY CHANGES.  FIVE!  Love the throwback to the Motown era, love her vocal layering. Did I mention the five key changes??

Class

If you don’t know…I am a PROUD BeyHive Member. 1- 9….EIGHT. ONE!

Beyonce’s catalogue is LITERALLY flawless. Her missteps are still better than mosts (yup B’Day may not have been my favorite but if you don’t think that stops me from listening, you’re WRONG.) What makes Bey better is that her live performance are FAR better than her recorded works. This is a HUGE statement considering her albums are perfect. Picking my three favorite songs might be one of the hardest challenges for me. So i’m only considering live performances. Wish me luck.

1) 1+1 (Dressing Room Edition) 

 

My. God. A keyboard. Beyonce’s Golden Vocals. Harmonies by the Mamas. ANY QUESTIONS?!

2) End Of Time (Revel Edition)

The. End. Of. Time. STOMP! The sickening pink pumps. I am unable.

This song instantly stood out to me on her classic 4 album. It is a perfect dancing song, running song, cooking song, cleaning song, do better in life song, etc. It is perfection and Beyonce ALWAYS gives it her 300%. I dare you to not stomp and body roll up….DARE YOU.

3) Resentment (Live from Las Vegas Edition) 

DO YOU HEAR HER RAT B*TCH RIHANNA?!?! GO IN BEY! SHE AIN’T EVEN HALF OF ME!!!!!!!!! YASSSSSSSS!

The passion Beyonce performed this with is INCREDIBLE. I don’t know who pissed her off that day but the result is incredible. Also…Why are the Mamas so sickening? I hate and love them.

And a special treat!

Never forget where it all began. Destiny’s Child. I stumbled across this gem and thought i’d share. Please enjoy them stomping the f*ck out of the football field. I miss DC3.

RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep4 Recap

Hellooooooo Dolly!

Okay, I’m sorry.  That was a cheap, easy joke.  And Team Trash should be better than that.  It’s just Trash this time.

sorryboutit

We get a throwaway mini challenge this week. Female or Shemale.  The queens saw extreme close-ups of either drag queens or biological womens and had to guess which was which.   Ben DeLaCreme (yay!) and Adore (ugh…) win and become team captains for the main challenge.

Shade the RuSical!  I can already tell you that Class is jealous that he was not one the show for this episode.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.  The show immediately starts out with the “Battle of the Idols”  between Courtney Act and Adore Delano.  We knew that when they hit the singing challenge, this would come up.  Personally, I think that Adore has the stronger voice, but Courtney has more control and is more effortless.

Also, let’s just talk about this.  Because it makes me happy.

As the queens rehearse, we hear Gia’s singing voice.

 tumblr_m81iunuS9d1qjipi2o1_r1_250

Ru visits and as the queens prepare, Joslyn gets in a quick read citing Bianca Del Rio and inspiration for her butch queen look. She really has more going for her than I thought.

Trinity is showing her ass because she’s nervous. To quote Alyssa Edwards, “Get a grip, get a life, and get over it.”  This is season 6.  Show up and compete, ho!

Listen.  Joslyn Fox is everything this episode.  I really do feel bad for April.  You can tell that she is putting in 100% effort and she simply isn’t a musical queen.

“Is she frustrated sexually?” Shut up Gia.

Ooh Trinity. You are out of line. And defensive. Get it together. I get that Bianca has a slick mouth but you should be able to take it.

Laganja is so obnoxious and I love her.

What’s a Tony? Good bye Gia.

Adore talks about “butching” it up for Idol. Which sucks that she wasn’t able to really be herself as she competed.

Gia discusses her history of kabuki which is actually interesting. If she spent more time talking about her past instead of being dumb and catty, I might like her.

We have not given Ru props for looking amazing on the runway each week. She looks phenomenal.

SHERYL LEE RALPH!!!! ::yas gif::

And cute Lucian. Hey boo.

The Dragbill was a nice touch, Ru.

Shade: The Rusical

Darienne’s dancing is not good and weakens her and Gia’s performance.

Ben is FABULOUS!  She totally brought it as the Shady Lady.  Could have won.

COURTNEY is everything.  She’s a fucking star.

Bianca is actually great and is really shining.

Trinity and Gia…do better than expected. Neither is going to win but both really give it their all.

Adore’s look is just a mess. But her singing is good-ish. She has sounded better.

Laganja and Joslyn are great. Joslyn seriously is amazing here. LUV HUH.

Milk should be better than this. Like she’s not the worst, but her look is disappointing.

Poor April is trying her absolute best. It’s not a good performance though.

Runway Rundown

Bianca continues to look smashing.  But she still needs to show a new silhouette.

Trinity looks okay but some of her looks still reads a little inexpensive.

Darienne – Ooh girl, this is bad. It doesn’t flow like a gown should.

Gia looks much better than last week. But I’m not a huge nude fan in general though.

Ben is drag fabulousness. Loving Ben and she better make the top six.

Courthey Act is fabulous.  Like there’s no critique when you look like that.

Laganja is love.  I honestly think she looks amazing most of the time.  Alyssa taught her well.

April’s gown is pretty, but this is not her best.  Last week’s rainy day was her high point.

Joslyn looks good, too. Gia was correct in that her wig was not hot.

Milk disappointed me this week.  Her look this week was weird but it’s not interesting or clever this time like the past 2 weeks

Adore looks okay. This was better than last week but her looks just aren’t very good.

Judging

During the judging panel, Sheryl READS the dog shit out of Trinity. Darienne is clueless, failing to realize that she was not great in the Rusical.  Michelle is completely wrong for coming for Ben. She killed it. And Courtney brought it…but came across a little arrogant during the judging.  But she knows that she rocked it.  Can’t blame her there.

Adore didn’t cinch again. And her dress is worse upon closer inspection. Ooh, the reads for April. Poor girl, she really is trying her hardest.  The judges hate Trinity’s diction but Ru defends her flipper. They do hate her attitude. Sheryl is life acquired.  Permanent guest judge!

Courtney and Ben really are the shining stars. Michelle is OFF here.  Santino is defending Adore and I guess she really shouldn’t go this week. Poor April. All of the effort is noted though.

I love the reveal of the winners. Courtney wins!!!! Obviously though. She really nailed it. Adore and Ben are top.

Darienne is saved from the bottom two, leaving Trinity and April to lip sync to I’m Every Woman by Chaka Khan.  These girls better bring it.

And they both do!  Trinity is WERQING her fan! April is really good though but like Dida Ritz before her, sometimes a black girl just can’t be beat.  Trinity chantays and April Carrion is told to sashay away.

I am sad for April. She really is a gorgeous girl and she is by no means a bad queen. I hope the best for her.

What did you guys think?  Let us know on Twitter at @ClassNTrashShow or in the comments below.

Pause: I don’t typically talk about Untucked but let’s talk about how dumb Gia is. Gia was being ignorant and being rude. Milk, for all of her issues, is not below anyone. And Gia is literally the worst. THE WORST. She isn’t actually that great a fishy queen and yet she acts like she’s sitting.

ByeAshy

Joslyn is so right in this argument. And I’m living for her.
