PUBLISHER'S CORNER THE VOTERS SPOKE LOUD AND CLEAR I want to congratulate Michael Góngora and Mark Samuelian on their recent election as Miami Beach commissioners. Both Michael and Mark sat down with me before the elections to discuss why they thought they were the best candidates for their respective seats and what their top priorities would be if elected to the Miami Beach commission. Now that Michael and Mark have been elected, Wire Magazine will remain in contact with both of them to follow up on their promises, priorities and the major issues Miami Beach commissioners must address to make the city of Miami Beach a better place for both residents and tourists. Besides electing Michael and Mark as commissioners, the voters of Miami Beach handed a resounding defeat to Mayor Philip Levine on his ballot measure to restrict alcohol sales after 2 a.m. on Ocean Drive as a way to curtail rising crime and violence on the famed strip. What Ocean Drive really needs is more police officers walking the beat to deter crime. Major tourist destinations such as New York, London and Paris have a very noticeable police presence on the streets to protect both residents and tourists, while deterring criminals from committing crimes. Miami Beach should do exactly the same, instead of having politicians propose ballot proposals that fail to provide real solutions, while ignoring practical crime deterrence measures implemented by other world class destinations around the globe. In this week's cover story, you will meet beautiful model Eric Turner who describes himself as "quite easily amused." You will also enjoy Eric's photos from his recent shoot with renowned photographer David Vance at his studio in Miami. I sat down with Eric to learn more about his interests, workout routine to stay in great shape and life in general. This sexy daddy reminds us that we can all get and stay in shape if we eat properly and exercise. In Sexy Rides, I take a look at the Jaguar F-Type convertible, a true Jaguar sports car that delivers a powerful, agile and utterly distinctive ride with three different engine choices. This all-aluminum two-seat sports car includes the most powerful four-cylinder motors ever offered in a production Jaguar. In Shopping Bag, we bring you four stylish designs by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy and Gucci that will keep you warm in the coming cooler temperatures. Lastly, in Top Trax DJ FR8-O showcases soundtracks by Sam Smith and George Michael that are perfect if your latest trials and tribulations call for some alone time instead of party time. Stay tuned for next week's annual Winter Party Week special issue of Wire Magazine. We will preview all upcoming events and interview some of the DJs spinning at the most popular parties. Cheers,

TOP TRAX By DJ FR8-O

SAM SMITH & GEORGE MICHAEL B O Y S I N B L U E S

Sam Smith - The Thrill Of It All Although he first cut his teeth as a featured vocalist on dance tracks like Disclosure's "Latch" and Naughty Boy's "La La La," Sam Smith got his first taste of international fame with his solo ballad "Stay With Me." Being of English descent and trailing on the success of Adele's heartbreak-heavy 21, the openly gay artist was instantly branded "the male Adele" – a nickname he humbly accepted and wore with pride. After slowly creeping into obscurity over the last three years (other than the Golden Globe and Oscar-winning James Bond: Spectre theme song "Writing's on the Wall") the four-time Grammy winner is back with a brand new set of tear-jerkers. Despite being composed almost entirely of slow songs and acoustic arrangements, this time the 25-year-old singer-songwriter is wiping his tears, moving on and not looking back, starting with the empowered lead single, "Too Good at Goodbyes." Throughout the rest of the collection, we get to see a stronger, more confident Sam Smith, but with the same mesmerizing vocals that made him one of this generation's most influential gay icons.

George Michael - Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 / MTV Unplugged As we approach the anniversary of one of the greatest losses in modern music history, Sony has delivered a remastered version of George Michael's most epic accomplishment as part of a 2-disc set. After the dizzying worldwide success of his debut solo album Faith in 1987, a 24-year-old pop star resentfully turned his back on the fame game and created Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, an album he arranged, produced and wrote almost entirely on his own. Refusing to let his sex symbol image water down the poignant messages within the album, George chose not to show his face on the album's artwork, promotional materials or music videos, like the supermodel-clad anthem "Freedom '90." It's now been 27 years since its original release and LWP,V1 still sounds as flawless and as relevant as ever, considering today's current political climate. His acoustic live performances on Disc 2 – MTV Unplugged (1996) – remind us that this Grammy-winning artist was just as gifted stripped down to the bare essentials as he was immersed in all of the studios bells and whistles. As an added treat for the fans, Sony has also included a rework of the 1990 B-side, "Fantasy," featuring another music legend, Nile Rodgers. To celebrate the re-release of this audiophile's wet dream, Showtime recently aired the incredible documentary George Michael: Freedom, narrated and co-directed by George himself; his final gift to the world.

s a red-blooded Cuban-American gay man, nothing thrills me more than shaking off life's daily dramas on the dance floor to an uplifting anthem viciously delivered by my favorite female icons. Whitney, Sia, Lady Gaga, Kylie, Madonna, P!nk – they always seem to know just what to say to pull me out of my funk and get me back to my happy place. But it seems like my dance divas have taken a timeout lately, and handed the floor to the boys for a hot minute; boys who would rather sing the blues than dance in denial. So, if your latest trials and tribulations call for some alone time instead of party time, here are a couple of soundtracks to help you get your brood on.

ERIC TURNER

MEET BEAUTIFUL MODEL

14 WIREMAG.COM #44 2017


eet beautiful model Eric Turner who describes himself as "quite easily amused." I sat down with Eric to learn more about his interests, workout routine to stay in great shape and life in general – after his photo shoot with renowned photographer David Vance at his studio in Miami. This sexy daddy reminds us that we can get and stay in shape if we eat properly and exercise, but looking as magnificent as Eric does take extra effort and dedication. Rafa Carvajal: Where are you originally from and where do you live? Eric Turner: I'm originally from the mountains outside of Salt Lake City, UT, and I currently live in Houston, TX. RC: Describe yourself in three words. ET: Quite easily amused. RC: What do you do for work? ET: I've launched a men's underwear and athletic apparel line, Oryx. I also do some personal training. RC: What do you enjoy doing for fun? ET: I love the outdoors. It's ironic that I chose to live in Houston, since the climate is such that it's hard to get outside most of the year. However, I like to travel to places where I can. I also enjoy watching films in the cinema and spending time playing with my dogs. RC: Who is your role model that inspires you most? Why? ET: My paternal grandfather inspired me the most. He was a hard worker who was able to accomplish a lot because of his work ethic and his resolve. RC: Tell us about your workouts to stay in such great shape. ET: I split my days into body parts, and I only hit each body part once a week. The exception to that is arms twice and abs three times weekly. My rule is 4-5 exercises per muscle group, and I hit them from multiple angles to develop and pump areas of that muscle on which I want to focus. I do fasted cardio weekday mornings.

ERIC TURNER "YOUR BODY CAN LOOK GREAT IF YOU HAVE A HORRIBLE WORKOUT PROGRAM AND A PERFECT DIET, BUT NOT IF YOU HAVE A PERFECT WORKOUT PROGRAM AND A HORRIBLE DIET." - ERIC TURNER

16 WIREMAG.COM #44 2017


RC: What is the most important tip you would give someone who wants to get in shape? ET: The most important thing you can do is eat right. Your body can look great if you have a horrible workout program and a perfect diet, but not if you have a perfect workout program and a horrible diet. And it's not an overnight process. I've been lifting weights for 20 years, so it's been a 20 year process to get where I am. And a 21 year process to get where I'll be next year. But the most critical thing you can do to help build the physique you want is to be consistent about it. RC: What do you most enjoy about modeling for photography? ET: Traveling to new places and experiencing new things. I've been very fortunate to meet some really great people through my modeling. I've worked with some really great photographers, and have walked away from many of the shoots with not just images, but great friendships. RC: What has been your favorite location for a photo shoot? Why? ET: They've all been so different, so it's hard to compare them. I had a great time shooting a swimwear campaign during a Sunday afternoon on Castro Street in San Francisco. It was packed and there were two photographers, a videographer, the artistic director and a stylist – so it was a production. We were in the middle of the Castro during a busy afternoon and it was so much fun interacting with people as they were walking around. RC: Boxers or briefs? ET: Briefs, unless we're talking bedtime, then it's commando.

ERIC TURNER

"MY PATERNAL GRANDFATHER INSPIRED ME THE MOST. HE WAS A HARD WORKER WHO WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH A LOT BECAUSE OF HIS WORK ETHIC AND HIS RESOLVE."


RC: What are your favorite foods? ET: I couldn't function without Tex Mex, it is my go-to cheat meal. I don't eat much fish because I don't like the taste of pre-prepared and reheated fish, but I will never pass up an opportunity to eat sushi or baked goods. I love me some baked goods. Specifically oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, brownies and blondies. RC: What is your favorite hobby? ET: I would say weightlifting because I do consider it a hobby. But beyond that, playing the piano. I've played the piano since I was 3-years-old, and it's always relaxing for me to sit down and play around for a couple of hours. RC: What is your favorite place in the world? Why? ET: Cape Town, South Africa. It's the most beautiful, magical and exotic city on the planet. RC: How is it working on a photo shoot with David Vance? ET: David is a lot of fun. It can be difficult to walk into a photographer's studio and taking your clothes off immediately, while feeling and looking natural and comfortable. When I first got to his studio, we probably spent 45 minutes styling my hair and just chatting, which really warmed me up to him once I had to strip my clothes off for the shoot. We then had a really great time joking with each other while we shot. He's really good at putting you at ease during the shoot, or at least he was with me. RC: What is your current struggle? ET: I love food. Eating the right foods is easy for me. Keeping the diet "clean," that's sometimes a challenge for me. As the holidays approach, all of the sweets are going to start calling my name. RC: Is there anything else you would like to share with Wire Magazine readers? ET: Toilet paper rolls should roll over, not under. Take notes.
