This Week's InstaHottie, Bradley Austen. DAMN!

Another week, another InstaHottie! This week we had the pleasure of chatting to Bradley Austen, who we have been fans of for a long while! We spoke gym routines, style and celebrity crushes, enjoy!

Hi Bradley! Where am I speaking to you from today?

 

Hey hey, I’m all the way in London, United Kingdom! 

 

You’re this week’s InstaHottie at Instinct, how do you feel about that title?

 

Ha ha, what a great title, I am pretty honoured. 

 

What does your day to day fitness routine look like?

 

I am a fitness Freak, I go 6 days a week. My favourite is leg day, my legs are my strongest muscle. The Hungarian squat is top of the chart along with ‘Glute Kickback’ …. every time I train legs I have a pizza, which is awesome.. Who doesn’t love Pizza. I always get, ‘wtf Brad?’ But honestly, give it a go. It helps grow the glutes! 

My work outs split looks like:

·        legs, biceps and abs 

·        Shoulders, triceps and abs 

·        Chest, biceps and abs 

·        Back, triceps and abs 

Abs get the treat of being worked every day. 

My diet during the week is chicken, rice and sweet potato, stir fry’s,

At the weekend I always treat myself to burger, I love my food too much to be too strict. I am a sucker for fast food,sweets and cake! 

You’re not shy about showing some skin, where does that confidence come from?

 

I Started going to the gym when I was 14 I was always conscious of how my body looked.

I used to be very skinny, the inspiration then came from looking at other men in the gym. As soon as my body started to build and change shape, I was obsessed! I felt like a completely different person and the compliments definitely helped. 

 

You also have a great sense of style, are you influenced by anybody in the media with what you wear, or is it all you?

 

Why thank you - I would say Instagram has massively influenced the way I style myself. There are so many clothing companies that TV personalities now promote. My favourite jeans I like to wear are from Topman: Super Spray, turned up on the ankles, followed by a simple tee, or long sleeve t-shirt - Muscle fit of course!

You’re really family orientated, judging from your Instagram, how important is family to you?

 

I am super close with my family, I always have been. More so, since I left home and relocated to London. I speak to one of my family members at least once a day and try to visit once a month. 

My nieces are adorable, I always forget they follow me on snapchat! they now both pout and started to twerk. One is 9 and the other is 6! 

I tell them everything and I think it’s important including me being gay. 

 

Biggest turn on

 

Pecs, oh my. Pecs all day every day. Same as a straight guy... Tits and arse. 

All-time favourite song?

 

That’s a tricky one, I love music. Especially house! 

But I am a massive fan of Rudimental - ‘feel the love’ also ‘Martin Solveig Place’

I have some great memories of driving around in the summer to those songs. 

 

Favourite place in the world?

 

Theme park in Los Angeles ‘Six Flags Great Adventure’ - I am obsessed with Rollercoasters. I love the Adrenalin rush.

I play Rollercoaster Tycoon still till this day, lame I know. 

Celebrity crush?

 

Ryan Reynolds... Wow 

 

And finally, what’s next for Bradley Austen?

 

Apart from marrying Ryan Reynolds? I’d love to travel around America, I love the States so much

I am currently the brand ambassador HiitMat which is super exciting, they are developing and launching a new piece of technological fitness equipment that assists and tracks your Hiit training. Make sure you keep an eye for new things to come.

Check out this weeks InstaHottie, Josh Popenko!

Happy Wednesday! It's another InstaHottie post, aren't you lucky! Today we are ogling over the Australian hunk Josh Popenko.

With his Instagram account filled with naked pictures, bulging muscles and... goats, it's easy to see why we chose him this week. We spoke to Josh and got to know a little more about him.

 

Hi Josh! Great to speak to you. Where are you today?

 

Hi, Great to speak with you as well ! I'm out in my back patio in Brisbane, Australia. 

We’ve selected you as this week’s InstaHottie! How do you feel about this prestigious title?

 

Although an honour; when I think of my self depreciating humour and piss-taking ways seen on my Instagram, it is a title I never would have expected. However it is an appreciated stroke to the ego, so thank you very much. 

 

You’re quite the exhibitionist, and you’re certainly not shy about showing your body. Where does that confidence come from?

 

At times I think I should be shy about it, but then I watch videos of people streaking and I feel a sort of kinship with them. Like, I get it man, let your little willy fly free. There's also something incredibly rewarding about people seeing your flaws, weird shapes and things you may be concerned about physically and then learning nothing bad happens. No one cares. And neither should I. 

What’s your gym routine like?

 

It's been a truly gruelling process to develop one that works for me. It's taken years of constantly learning and developing ways of pretending to know what I'm doing by discreetly mimicking the buff gym dudes before they clue onto the fact they're being watched and copied. 

 

You feature your pet goats on your Instagram quite a bit! Quite the unconventional pet! Why goats?

 

Aren't they just great? I'm a country kid and have always grown up with farm animals. I guess I didn't want to let living inner city stop me from getting the pets I really wanted. Where there's a will there's a way and I'm a little bit proud of myself for making the dream of owning two beautiful little hoofed idiots in the city a reality. 

You look as good in heels as you do naked, do you enjoy blurring that masculine/feminine line?

 

Thank you and absolutely. Im a piss taker by nature, wether it be making fun of Insta models or poking fun at myself; toying with gender pressures and type casts of sexuality is totally my gig. Plus, after a long hard day on the tools, there's nothing quite like kicking off your work boots, cracking a beer and having a mince around in my pink fluffy heels. 

Butt or bulge?

 

Butt

 

Heels or flats?

 

I think we can guess the answer to that one.

Spice Girls or Destiny’s Child?

 

Destiny's child. Minus Michelle and that other hand break. 

 

Kylie or Dannii?

 

Amy Winehouse. (I'm triggered senseless, Josh)

 

Beer or wine?

 

Bathe me in beer.

And finally, what’s next for Josh Popenko?

 

I've never really travelled and I'm really excited to start doing so. A world of experience and photo opportunities awaits me. Also, 

Youtube the words cross+dressed+farmer. The first video that comes up is a very clear glimpse into my future and honestly, I embrace it. Also, Thanks for the interview, I really enjoyed it!

Go follow Josh on Instagram @JoshPopenko for more hilarious and handsome posts!

InstaHottie Of The Week: Matteo Lane

Who is ready for an early week hottie to get your Monday off to a good start? Of course you are! This weeks InstaHottie is Matteo Lane, the Italian Stallion with a Mexican twist. This funnyman is currently touring his comedy show, and we got a chance to catch up with him before he embarks on his tour!

 

Hi Matteo, a pleasure to speak with you. Where are you speaking to me from today?

 

Buenos Dias!! I’m speaking to you from my boyfriends house in Madrid, Spain. 

 

You’re Instinct Magazines InstaHottie of the week this week. How do you feel about the title?

I feel great! Even though I just got food poisoning from octopus and have a giant rash on my stomach, it still feels good. Now I’m an actual hottie, a man who’s skin feels like it’s on fire. Fuck octopus. Aliens of the sea. 

 

You’ve really got the 1920’s Strongman look down to a T, with the moustache and body. We are totally here for it. What’s your gym routine like?

 

 I think my Italian and Mexican heritage is why my mustache is so prominente. I’ve had this mustache since I was 7 years old. My gym routine is one my sister gave me. 6 days a week, focus on each muscle group, and eat a lot. It’s pretty boring but I have a hectic life, it’s nice to have some kinda routine to stabilize it. 

 

Aside from showing your assets on Instagram, you also have a Podcast! Tell us more about that.

 

Yes! Comedian Emma Willmann and I decided to start a podcast called Inside the Closet. Basically we sit and chat with no script, plans or any real agenda. We like to have a free flow conversation. It always ends up about sex. Or dating, but I often do my Barbara from shark tank impression. 

You’ve appeared on some really high profile gigs! The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Adam Devine’s Comedy House Party to name a few! How important is Comedy to you?

 

What if after all those credits you listed my reaction was just me shrugging my shoulders. Haha. It’s obviously very important. It’s the first thing I’ve done in life that feels right to me. I love comics, I love the grind and I love the stage.  I was a storyboard artist for fashion ads and Tv commercials for years, and then 6 years ago found comedy and haven’t looked back since. 

 

Being a gay man yourself, is there is a different atmosphere being a comedian? Does your humor come from a different place?

 

I think at the core I’m the same as every other comic. Angry, neurotic etc. But being gay definitely gives me a unique look at life. I’m coming from an outside place, looking in. So maybe my jokes and observations feel slightly different because of that? But I generally don’t think of myself as anything but a comic. (Sides the fact I usually open my set singing in my falsetto, a Puccini aria) 

 

You used to be an Opera singer, you’re a master of all trades! Are we going to be treated for a rendition of Ave Maria any time soon?

 

Haha I used to sing Ave Maria  at weddings and funerals. Actually I sang ave Maria at my cousins wedding this summer. It’s not the most fun song to sing, I’d rather sing Mariah. 

 

(Us too. I absolutely tear it up when I sing 'Honey' on karaoke)

You’re touring at the moment! Making your way around the US and over to Glasgow too! Over to my neck of the woods! Are you excited?

 

Yes! I love traveling, and I love comedy. So it’ll be great. I’ve only been to Italy and Spain, so it’ll be nice to be in an English speaking country doing comedy!

What can we expect from the tour?

 

Lots of singing and thot pictures. 

If people want to contact you, ogle your IG pictures, or get tickets for your tour, where can they find you online?

 

Go to Matteolane on all social media platforms. And matteolanecomedy.com for upcoming dates! 

 

And finally, whats next for Matteo Lane?

 

After a week out of the gym, probably the gym.
