5 years ago, when I was on big brother, @kyfeisty made me a video filled with positive messages from friends family and friends along with highlights from my season on big brother so that the first thing I saw when I left the house was all of the love and all the good that I had done, as a shield from any and all hate thrown my way... it was not only a beautiful gesture but a beautiful video... my mom and sister showed it to me as soon as i got out of the house and it made me feel strong in the midst of all the chaos. Ky and I met at the big brother after party that same night I saw the video and have stayed friends ever since. So when it came time to put together a visual for I Got Me I wanted to keep it in the vein of the song and continue to involve all the people who helped me become the strong independent man I am today... so I called Ky and asked if she would make this video, and she created this... a celebration of everything I have done SINCE leaving the big brother house... a part 2 to her original video. and i love it so much! thank you Ky for always supporting me no matter what and for once again, making me feel strong and shielded from all the hate in the world! Thanks for helping me shine bright and continue to beam my joy to the farthest corners of the world, pouring light into the darkness and vanquishing all the haters with LOVE! Hope you all enjoy this video as much as I do! 😊🙏🌈👏🎸❤️
tonight was one of the most magical nights of my life. madonna picks someone to “share a beer” with every night in the audience during the show and chat with them and tonight she asked me. it was so beautiful! and don’t worry... i didn’t drink the beer. in fact i put it in my mouth the sober way, ass first... 🤣 but it was wonderful and i held it together and we had a lovely moment together. there were NO PHONES ALLOWED, which made for a BEAUTIFUL EVENING where everyone could 👏 since they weren’t holding their phones, but M has the video... immortalizing this beautiful moment... especially me deep throating the BACK of a beer bottle. 🤷🏼♂️ it was just insane! omg she also asked me if i was working on music since the last time we saw each other i was in the studio with Ari recording Seasons of Love and i was like, yeh i just dropped a single... WHAT? it was SO INSANE! she sent a 💋 to my sister and i sent one back, yes i actually kissed the queen. but the most incredible part was that I got to tell her in person that this show was the BEST @madonna CONCERT I HAVE EVER SEEN. And I have seen all of them since blonde ambition when I was 7 years old. It was intimate, heart felt, challenging, defiant, jubilant and impactful. She reminded me that Artists are here to disturb the Peace. That we are here to stand up for what we believe in. That we are here to say the unpopular thing because we KNOW it is the RIGHT thing. She reminded me that I too am on this planet to be an unapologetic bitch. And 👑 M... that is exactly what I promise to you I shall keep on doing with my art and with my life... I love you. Thank you for changing my life.

I am so unbelievably happy to share this song with you all! It is a labor of love!! I sat down with the incredible @jeremyschonfeld to talk about my life and what I wanted the song to say over three years ago and he came back to me with I Got Me, this beautiful anthem about self-love and not needing anyone else to validate your day to day actions. A song about NOT people pleasing yourself into a hole and about avoiding co-dependent relationships. I recorded it... and I shelved it. Because at the time, though I believed it was the truth... I wasn’t genuinely living the life i was singing about in the song. So I never released it. Cut to today... almost 2 and a half years sober I AM finally LIVING A JOYOUS AND FREE LIFE! I am happy, healthy, in a supportive relationship, have healthy boundaries, practice self-care constantly, and while i am surrounded by those who support me, I am CAPABLE of standing on my own two feet. So here’s I Got Me! I hope you take strength from it’s words as I have, I hope you dance and sing around your room, and i hope it inspires you to find the place I have found through this song. Only surround yourselves with those who contribute to your shine. and please... SHINE BRIGHT! #LinkinBio ❤️✨⚡️🌈

‼️GRANDE ANNOUNCEMNT‼️So happy I finally get to let you hear my Grande plan... 😉 it basically starts with the fact that my boyfriend and I, @HaleLeon 😍, only started dating cause i convinced him i was a gamer... he thought we wouldn’t have much in common but when i started speaking “nerd” to him... it sealed the deal. 🖖Gaming has been a huge part of our relationship and why it’s so successful, so we wanted to share that with the world while also showing others that Gay men can defy common stereotypes of glitter & rainbows by kicking ass on a gaming platform... while covered in glitter & rainbows... 😁🌈 or in hale’s case, just plain KICKING ASS (he’s like... INSANELY good at gaming and still ain’t into glitter, but like, opposites attract 😋✨ )! YAY!

“oh that photo is wonderful, you should post that!” ~Nonna I couldn’t agree or love you more. ☺️❤️
today i went to nonna’s community to honor my grandfather, Frank Grande, for his service to our country for #veteransday . when i arrived they said they didn’t have anyone to sing the national anthem and asked me to do it. and so I did. it was the first time i sang our national anthem not in my shower. 😄 and as i sang the star spangled banner i felt proud. proud of the principles this country was founded on and committed to helping get us back to those principles again. proud to honor those who fought to make our country great. and proud of my amazing grandpa who i know was looking down on me today with his big beautiful smile... very proud of me in return. 🇺🇸 happy veterans day. thank you for your service. 🙏
I’m gonna start out by saying very simply: aids/lifecycle changed my life. listen I have always been a charitable person and a really really really loud gay glittery member of the LGBTQIA2 COMMUNITAY! but aids lifecycle changed the way I thought of the word community. cause I have always thought of community with a lower case c... but now I understand what it means to be part of a community with an upper case C! I have often felt like our community (little c ) was far away, vast and wide spread, less like a block party and more like a facebook thread where you interact with people with a quick thumbs up, scroll down, and then start reading a fake news article from russia. jk. I can’t read. but aids lifecycle made me feel what its like to be truly part of a Community (big C ) of people who are all working together to achieve a common goal. when you fall on the ride there are literally hindereds people to pick you up, when you are tired there’s an army of roadies there to give you fuel, medicine, massage, anything you need to finish that insurmountable hill you are approaching. this past year on my final day I was THE LAST PERSON to leave camp. I was exhausted. my legs were shot. my ego bruised. my neck. my back. my *USSY AND ESPECIALLY MY CRACK WERE DONE. Thank you, NEXT! But one of teammates hung back to ride out with me. I am on a sober team, the trudging buddies, as i am 2 years and 5 months sober as of next week... thats 845 days but who’s counting... I am! The trudging buddies know what it is like to be there for another human being and to be of service and that morning was no exception. My riding buddy waited for me to get taped up and kept pace with me the entire morning while my anxiety skyrocketed as i was sure we would never make it to the rest of the team. He talked me off the ledge and helped me focus my thoughts and I made it to the first rest stop where I was so grateful to see the fellow members of my team. But I was still in bad shape, i could BARELY PEDDLE... continued on the blog! #linkinbio
spending the week with these cuties... ☺️
