Short Takes: Zeb Atlas Sings!…and More
We turn our back for a minute and look who becomes a “singer”! Porn superstar Zeb Atlas released a music video last week for the Diana Ross classic “Love Hangover.” In it, the well-muscled screen stud cavorts in the tub and rips off his T-shirt (at least the guy knows his strengths) and duets with British disco diva Pearly Gates (the pair made another video together last year in which Atlas appeared as hunky man candy but did not “sing”). If you listen to Atlas’s manager David Forest, this is like the second coming of Stevie Nicks (whom Forest represented in the 1970s). “I am so elated about the entire situation,” Forest told VincentLambert.com. “I’m totally shocked. Never in a million years did I think that I’d leave the music business and end up in the XXX biz, and 30 years later, the XXX biz would call me back to work in music.” Forest says that there are plans for an entire album of songs from Atlas, and there will be another sexy video, due in April. On the porn front, Atlas is prepping the first release (due next month) from his own production company, Zeb Atlas Is The Boyfriend, with Adam Killian and Skye Woods, in addition to his recent scene with Brady Jensen for CocksureMen. As a “singer,” let’s just say that Atlas looks good in a tank top. Forest adds, “Zeb isn’t trying to be the next male singing sensation. He’s just having fun doing something very new for him.” To witness the fun, click here. (The music vid has had more than 80,000 hits!). And to check out Forest’s new site, which launches this week, visit FunintheForest.com. Kickoff celebrations will take place on February 2 at here lounge and February 3 at Cocktails With the Stars at Micky’s, both in West Hollywood. Premiere Artist talent James Jamesson will be a special guest at both nights. Wonder if he can sing!?…Anyone out there remember Catalina? (Not the island!) That’s the venerable video production company that was acquired by Chi Chi LaRue and her Channel 1 Releasing gang in 2007. Well, now we have news of the first new release from Catalina in more than a decade! LaRue, who got her start with the studio many moons ago, is at the helm of Frat Boy Fuck Down, which features Dean Monroe, Johnny Hazzard, Matthew Rush, Justin Cox and the return of Ryan Raz (who must have taken the advice of our gal pal Suze Orman and opted out of that early-retirement plan! Or maybe it was the 13-guy gang bang that lured blue-eyed cutie Raz back into the gay porn fold). For more info on the all-new Catalina release, visit C1R.com.…Who would have guessed that sex toys are still so big, er, popular!? COLT Studio Group just had Pete Kuzak (below) and Jake Tanner molded for dildos (Tanner’s is bigger, in case anyone is counting inches!). For more, visit COLTStudioGroup.com.
