The next big boyband talk Gay Sex, Grindr, Chlamydia, Beards (Video at link)
It's Union J! They were obviously better than Maloney but the X Factor's all gone a bit wrong this year so they're out. Nevermind, they're going to be very, very successful. So successful that this is probably the last time they're going to be allowed to talk about bumming, STDs and beards.
Holy Moly asks innocent, gay-rumored George if he's "going to get a beard like Taylor Swift"- a term only recently outed Jaymi understood.
The conversation then turns to "bumming" (anal sex), sexually transmitted diseases (something JJ seemed to have lots of knowledge about), and a discussion on gay hookup app Grindr. Only gay Jaymi knew what it was, and told them to ask Rylan.
They then talk about Christopher Maloney and what will happen when he wins X Factor.
Ugly MFs!!!!!! All the hype in the world won't make these guys big.
That's what makes the girls cream their panties these days?
I honestly can't see these guys being successful.
Girls, and eldergay pedos, R3.
George is adorable, and Jaymi has a great voice.
But personally, I prefer District3 from this year's X Factor boy bands.
Wow.. the bitching has already begun! Not that I'm really surprised.. this is Datalounge after all.
They are all gorgeous and especially George. JJ is beautiful too. Josh is well.. he may not be conventionally hot, but he is good looking, and his personality is so amazing. He's so funny and outgoing and gay friendly. He was holding hands with Rylan, an openly gay contestant on X Factor this year.. he also made him kissing faces, lol. He has a good voice too. Maybe not as amazing as Jaymi, but still very good. Jaymi.. he's incredible. He's openly gay, has been with his boyfriend for three years, and they're getting married next year, he's so sweet and nice and he has an incredible voice! Stop hating on them. Honestly.. these boys are so sweet. I like them much more than the brats that they call One Direction.. the one direction boys can't even behave in interviews.
R5, these guys are between 19 and 24. Perfectly legal.
District 3 was a fucking mess, R6. I don't get why people say they were better. Yes, they had better harmonies than Union J, but Union J has only been together for a few months. They added George and sure, they still need to work on their harmonies, but still.. they're not bad. District 3 has had years to perfect their harmonies, while Union J hasn't. And please.. better? Their stage performance was a fucking mess.. they were all over the place. They weren't even that good vocally, take away their harmonies and what do you have? oh yeah.. a mediocre boyband. Then they complained every week when they were criticized by the judges. They blamed EVERYONE else but themselves. I feel that while Union J got better week after week, District 3 actually regressed. They got worse and worse. And I feel like they never really had a grasp on what they wanted to do.. they never found themselves. Their hip hop/rnb theme got old fast. It wasn't refreshing or new, it was just bad. I got a headache from watching them. They were all over that stage every week. At least Union J found themselves and that's why they were successful. I also got tired of District 3's cocky, obnoxious attitudes. They're too much for my taste. I prefer Union J. I think Union J are much sweeter.
But oh well.. it doesn't really matter. Union J already got signed to Sony.. where is District 3? Oh yeah.. right. They didn't get a record deal. Too bad.
[quote]They are all gorgeous and especially George.
Um, not so much. And teen girls don't go for boybands with gay boys. Sorry.
Union J? Because Union K didn't sound hip enough?
Excuse me fucking homophobe at R9.. you do know you're on a GAY website, right? and I can just tell you right away that you're wrong. The fans knew Jaymi was gay since the start and the fans didn't care. The fans actually ship him with his boyfriend. Why would it matter that he's gay? He's still the same guy, he's still got an incredible voice. I don't see your point.. it's not like all of them are gay anyway, only one out of four guys is gay.. the rest of them are straight. So there's still plenty of guys the teenage fangirls can picture themselves with. Funny.. because I actually think the fangirls would prefer them being gay over them having girlfriends, because right now all of them have girlfriends, and it's not an ideal situation for a boyband.
R10.. Triple J auditioned as a group.. with Jaymi, JJ and Josh. They were sent home at bootcamp, where District 3 did better than them and were through to the judges houses. But then Rough Copy, another group, got issues with their visas, so Louis decided to bing back Triple J, but now with the addition of George (he auditioned as a solo act, but was a fan favorite), so he renamed them Union J. Funny how it all works out, because they actually ended up going further in the competition than District 3, they even got signed to Sony.. District 3 haven't been signed yet afaik.
Lovely interview. George seems remarkably cool with the insinuation that he's gay. I'm going with this explanation rather than coming to grips with fact that the reference was likely beyond what he was grasping at the moment.
They are so girly. At least American boy bands tend to have muscles and look like dudes.
Bump to say they're all as dumb as a bags of rocks.
Yes these guys are very metro-sexual but I won't throw them out of bed. Except for George he gives me the creeps.
If they want to break the US market, they will be butched-up as much as humanly possible. Watch them force the "rumored family member" back into the closet and bolt the door shut. They must already have Taylor or Camilla on speed dial.
It's not "rumored" R16 Jaymi is publicly out and engadged. Didn't you watch the interview?
R13, girly? no.. just British. Girls like guys who look like them, just look at One Direction ffs. They're not exactly manly or butch either.
R14, they're dumb as a bag of rocks because they didn't get all of the gay jokes? Maybe they just didn't get them because oh I don't know.. they're not actually gay (except for Jaymi)?
R15, I've heard other people say the same.. his cheekbones may be a bit much at times.. but I happen to think he's beautiful. And yes, they're all metrosexual and gay friendly, just like most British guys are.
R16, see R17. He publicly came out in The Sun. I think it will be kinda hard to push him back in the closet.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
