Church Threatens Legal Action Against 'I'm Not Gay No More' Man Over iTunes Song: AUDIO

Caldwell

The Church of God in Christ, the Pentacostal Christian denomination at the center of the "I'm not gay no more" megachurch conversion video that went viral earlier this month, is reportedly threatening legal action against the "gay no more" man Andrew Caldwell for remixng the video into a song and putting it on iTunes.

TMZ reports the church has ordered him to stop selling the song "partly because they own the audio, but also because they feel Andrew is making a mockery of the service." Andrew, however, claims he's copyrighted the song and that he can claim ownership because the song only contains his voice. 

Earlier this month, Caldwell addressed the widespread doubt that he had been "turned straight" and shot down sugestions that he staged the moment for publicity.

Bearded drag performer Conchita Wurst has released a dramatic new video directed by Clemens Purner for his power ballad "Heroes", which is the follow-up to "Rise Like a Phoenix", the track which led to the Eurovision crown.

According to Sony, Wurst came up with the concept for the video which represents a relationship between two people. A man is asked to reconsider his previous actions and do something good for humanity, to be a hero.

Wurst was recently honored by the United Nations in Vienna for his work on behalf of the LGBT community.

Country Singer Billy Gilman Comes Out as Gay: 'It's Time to Be Honest and Truthful' - VIDEO

Gilman

Billy Gilman, who at the age of 12 became the youngest singer to land a Top 40 hit on the country music charts with 2000's "One Voice," has come out as gay in a video message posted online today. 

Gilman2In the video, Gilman shares that country singer Ty Herndon's coming out earlier today makes it easier for him to open up, but that he is still concerned about how the country music industry will react. 

You know, it's difficult for me to make this video not because I'm ashamed of being a gay male artist or a gay artist or a gay person. But it's pretty silly to know that I'm ashamed of doing this knowing that because I'm in an genre and industry that is ashamed of me for being me. That said, I want to say that all of the country artists that literally I grew up with - Keith Urban, Vince, LeAnn Rimes and all of these wonderful friends of mine have been nothing but supportive. Not that they knew but they've just been such wonderful people.  

Gilman also reveals that he's been with his partner for five months.

The OXD Mirror: Jessie Ware Remixed, MK's latest project, New Róisín Murphy and much more

OXD-Mirror-11.20

BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT 

i'm sorry to be on such a Jessie Ware binge recently but the truth of the matter is her latest album, Tough Love, is nothing short of amazing and more importantly she's not afraid to get experimental with some really fantastic producers on the disco and house scene when it comes to remixes.

Which brings me to why I'm showcasing her again today. Jessie Ware:Remixed is a collaboration between Ware and Red Bull Studios where five different producers in five different cities create five distinctive remixes for the Julio Bashmore-produced album track, 'Keep on Lying.' While all five are noteworthy, it's Preditah's garage influenced remix that stands out, possibly because it reminds me of another garage-influenced Ware remix, by Disclosure, which put both of those acts on the map way back in 2012.
