Owl City Live in Manila


THE MAN AND THE STORY BEHIND THE HIT FIREFLIES

OWL CITY, headed by 22 year old front man Adam Young, the genius behind the hit song Fireflies, shall pave his way to Manila for a live concert at the SMX Convention Center on March 14, 2010.

Thanks to his hit song, Fireflies, his rise to fame enjoyed a pace that not many new artists get to enjoy especially if they are categorized in a new genre. Critics call his sound, electro – pop. In the language ofFireflies aficionados, the song was simply a breath of fresh air. Yet, what’s the real story behind this phenomenal song that was initially loved only by the underground, taste making public?

In a recent interview, Adam Young told the story behind his hit, “…I planned a weekend out camping because there was going to be a meteor shower that night and so I remember lying on my back, looking up at the sky and seeing these shooting stars and thinking how much they abstractly resemblefireflies and I thought, what a cool idea that would be to translate that whole vibe, mood and feeling into music…”

Little did Adam Young know that a natural phenomenon would lead to the tipping point of his career. At present, Owl City enjoyed much publicity and recognition for his experimental creations. Here in the Philippines,Fireflies crossed over almost all radio stations especially in the provinces. Upon the release of his second hit, Vanilla Twilight, Owl City became a household name.

Adam Young, who is indeed at the prime of his life at 22, started making music in his basement where he still, even after his success, chooses to make his songs. On a normal day, when everyone is available, Owl City performs as a quintet. In his basement which he affectionately calls his bat cave,Adam Young creates music with 4 of his sidekicks who are also his best friends. The group comprise of a drummer, a back-up singer slash keyboardist, a cello player, a violinist, and a guitarist who also plays synth vibes and guitar.

Your browser may not support display of this image. While his music continues to win followers all over the world, Adam does indeed hide behind his music, not going by his real name (See: Badly Drawn Boy and Dashboard Confessional); but going by the moniker Owl City. The name he chose for his music rooted from an experience while Adam was still in 2nd grade. It was during a show and tell activity where one of his classmates brought an owl that went wayward and caused craziness in his classroom. For some reason, it stuck toAdam Young for several years, hence naming his sound, Owl City.

With a long list of influencers, (God, Optimism, Photography, Air Travel, Vegetarianism, Fashion, Foreign Accents, Swimming Pools, Abstract Art, Wave Race 64, G-Rated Movies, Friends, Romance, Unwed Sailor, Stars of the Lid, Telefon Tel Aviv, Imogen Heap, Stairwell, DJ Encore, Prefuse 73, Rachel’s, ATB, The Album Leaf, Helios, Sigur Rós, Boards of Canada, Hammock, Kazumi Totaka, Thomas Newman, Owen, Armin van Buuren, Rachel Joy Scott, Audrey Hepburn, C. S. Lewis, John Piper, Jane Langton, Kenneth Oppel, Robert Wyland, Richard Adams, Cary Grant, Jackson Pollack, Hubert de Givenchy, Carl Sandburg) it’s hard to believe that he was able to come up with such unique tunes, it became a phenomenon overnight.

It is rare for an artist to come up with original material that clicks to music fans worldwide. Known as one of the most meek and shy breakthroughs in the industry, Adam strives to live simple despite his massive success. When asked what his advice would be for aspiring young musicians, his advice was indeed a reflection of how simple he can get. He said, “Take your vitamins, don’t run with scissors, eat lunch with the other kids at school, and drink your milk.” Such a sound and sensible advice from a small hometown guy who made it big with the help of ameteor shower.

CATCH ADAM YOUNG ALSO KNOWN AS OWL CITY LIVE IN MANILA on March 14, 2010, SUNDAY, 8PM at the SMX Convention Center. Get a copy of Owl City’s debut album, entitled Ocean Eyes now available in all major record bars in 1CD and 2CD editions. Stay tuned as well for the release of Owl City’s previous records, Of June and Maybe I’m Dreaming coming soon!

Lady Gaga Tests For HIV

Lady Gaga took an HIV test after panicking about her behaviour on tour.

The 'Bad Romance' singer recently had a sexual health screening in New York because she 'forgot' to look after her body properly when she was performing live shows for The Monster Ball Tour concerts.

She said: "I had an HIV test two days ago - and it's not because I'm taking off my clothes every night with a different man. When I'm on the road, I forget about taking care of my body. I don't go to the doctor as regularly as if I were in one place all the time. So I woke up and thought, 'Oh, I'm home in New York. I'm going to see my gyno and I'm getting an HIV test.' "

The 23-year-old star – who is believed to be dating her stylist and friend Matthew Williams – has made it her personal mission to make it "fashionable" for women to carry condoms and practise safe sex.

She told MarieClaire.com: "You put that condom in your purse and save your own f**king life. And don't call me in a week and cry. Because you know that infamous call from your girlfriend – 'Oh, my God, I got caught up, and I was afraid he wouldn't like me.' I mean, what year is it? It's scary, but I want it to be fashionable to be smart."

Lady Gaga recently blasted contradictory attitudes to sexuality which let men be more vocal about their conquests than women.

She said: "When a guy says, 'Oh I f**ked all these chicks this week', there's a high-five and giggling. But when a woman does it and it’s publicised or she's open about her sexuality or she's free or liberated, it's 'Oh, she must have a d**k'. There's a threat."

Lady Gaga's Ex-Boyfriend Told Her She Would Never Be A Pop Star

 

The 'Poker Face' singer has been determined to make a success of herself to spite a former lover, ever since he told her she was a terrible musician and would never be famous.

She told America's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail. I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee at the f***ing deli without hearing or seeing me.' "

The 23-year-old starlet has had enormous chart success since she launched her career last year.

As well as releasing several number one tracks, Lady Gaga - real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - has scooped numerous awards for her work, including a Grammy for her debut album 'The Fame' and another for her single 'Poker Face'.

Prior to this, Lady Gaga claims she put up with a lot of negative comments and only stuck at the music industry because of her unrealistic levels of ambition.

She said: "I ate s**t for so long, being told I didn't fit the mold and that I was 'too pop' or 'too theater'... I've always been delusionally ambitious to the point where people don't understand me."

Jason Castro Live At The Ayala Malls This March!

Those who watched Jason Castro on the seventh season of American Idol are by now familiar with his likeably down-to-earth personality and aw-shucks demeanor. When he opens his mouth to sing, it’s like watching a totally different person. Any off-beat quirkiness seems to fall away when his authentic maturity and spell-binding voice melts the hearts of every listener.

This March get mesmerized while Jason Castro belts out colorful summer lovin’ tunes in Manila! You’re in for a sweet summer and post-Valentine treat from Warner Music Philippines and the The Ayala Malls as Jason Castro is looking forward to serenading his Manila & Cebu fans. Catch him live at these series of shows:

March 18: Trinoma
March 19: Glorietta 5
March 20: Ayala Center Cebu
March 21: Market! Market!

Castro-A multi-talented singer and guitarist, was among the most popular and talented artists in American Idol history, entering the record books as the first contestant to play an instrument on the show. His performance of the Leonard Cohen-penned classic "Hallelujah" proved such an audience favorite that the late, great Jeff Buckley's rendition of the song hit #1 on the iTunes chart the following week, selling an astonishing 178,000 digital singles. Jason scored a chart-topping single of his own a few weeks later with his interpretation of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," which also hit #1 on iTunes after a show-stopping performance of the song on American Idol. Upon the season's conclusion, Castro was among the stars of the hugely successful "American Idols LIVE! 2008 Tour 2008"

The 22-year-old Texan earned himself a devoted fan base eager to hear what he would do once freed to perform his own songs. Those folks will get their chance with the release of Castro’s self-titled debut album on Atlantic Records. His season’s winner, David Cook, and runner-up, David Archuleta, both released debut albums about six months after the season finale. But no one rushed Jason Castro to pin down his style, and he certainly didn’t rush himself. It’s among the most sure-footed records, debut or otherwise, by an “Idol” contestant from any season. Partly that’s because Mr. Castro has had time to marinate, and to woodshed.

The heydays of the two David’s are over, it’s time to make way for Jason Castro’s music to fill the days of your summer and forward. Coming soon the Philippines is his The Love Uncompromised EP, a prelude to a full album this set to be released at a later date under Warner Music Philippines. For now you can enjoy “Let’s Just Fall In Love Again” on you cell phone and get the heart-on-sleeve and toe-tapping pop ringtune when you text JC to 5677!

Jason Castro Live at the Ayala Malls is brought to you by Warner Music Philippines & The Ayala Malls!

10 Rappers We Wish Weren’t In Prison

 

Well, it’s official: T.I. reported to the judge today to plead guilty to his weapons charges, and got formally sentenced to a year and a day (which could well end up being less when time served on house arrest gets taken into consideration). Clifford gets to voluntarily head to jail sometime after May 19, which gives him a couple of months extra to finish making the world a better place.

Needless to say, we’re making sad-face emoticons over here at Complex; not only is the civilian population losing one of the South’s finest lyricists and a genuinely smart and likable dude, but it’s just one more objectively great emcee who gets chalked into the “Incarcerated” category. There’s more than 20 rappers locked up right now, but since we don’t really fux with shermhead cannibals, we had to narrow it down to our 10 favorite (including Tip). For a look at the other nine, read on…

DMX

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Weapons Charge

Grammy-winning rapper expects 1-year sentence over gun found on bus


NEW YORK - In the midst of a career surge that has made him one of rap’s biggest stars, Lil Wayne is bracing for a year behind bars after pleading guilty in a two-year-old gun case.

A glum Lil Wayne said little as he admitted illegally having a loaded gun on his tour bus in 2007, moving to end a case that had churned along as he collected Grammys and gold records. He’s expected to get a year in jail at his sentencing, set for February.

The plea, which came as he boasted the country’s No. 1 pop song, makes Lil Wayne the latest in a long line of rappers to face incarceration after topping the charts.

Black Eyed Peas Blast Off In Epic 'Imma Be' Video

The Black Eyed Peas continue their futuristic video kick with the just-unveiled clip for "Imma Be," in which they alternately fight, run, fly through tunnels and preside over dance battles between "Transformers"-meets-"Halo" robots straight from the year 3008.
The ten-minute video mashes up "Imma Be," the Peas'  current top 5 hit, with "Rock Your Body," another club thumper from the group's album "The E.N.D." It's  got everything from hovercrafts to breakdancing, plus a semi-disturbing sequence in which member Taboo is assembled from a pair of walking legs and a limp torso. Spoiler alert: in the clip's accompanying intro and outro videos, it's revealed that the whole thing is a product of Fergie's hallucination - like the dream season of "Dallas" for the new millennium, if you will.

Rihanna Gets Birthday Surprize

 

 Rihanna’s rumoured boyfriend surprised her with a 22nd birthday party at the weekend.

The 'Rude Boy’ singer was 'shocked' by the bash put together by baseball player Matt Kemp in Phoenix, Arizona - where Kemp is currently training - as she was only expecting a small gathering of friends.

A source said: 'It was so sweet and she was really surprised. She looked just beautiful.'

Matt organised Caribbean food to be served to Barbados-born Rihanna and also reportedly bought her a custom-made diamond necklace.

The party was extra-special for Rihanna as she cancelled her 21st birthday celebrations last year in the aftermath of her assault at the hands of then-boyfriend Chris Brown early in February 2009.

The source added to website 'E! Online’: 'Matt really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna this year since she didn’t have much of a 21st birthday last year. It was just her closest friends, good Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and a nice cake.' Matt, 25, has been linked to Rihanna since they were seen holidaying together in Mexico in January, but he has played down romance rumours.

He said: 'Rihanna is just a friend, a good friend of mine. We went down to Mexico and had fun together.'

Avril Lavigne Dating Brody Jenner


Avril Lavigne is reportedly dating Brody Jenner.

The 'Sk8er Boi’ singer – who filed for divorce from rocker husband Deryck Whibley last October, a month after they separated – has been enjoying a low-key romance with the 26-year-old reality TV star for several weeks.

A source said: "They're hooking up but they're keeping it low-key."

Despite trying to keep their romance out of the public eye, the couple recently enjoyed a dinner at Los Angeles restaurant Koi before heading to nearby nightspot Voyeur, where they amazed onlookers with their flirty behaviour.

Another source told E! Online: "You can tell they're into each other and both like to have a good time. They're cute together."

Since splitting from Deryck – who she was married to for three years – Avril, 25, has been romantically linked with actor Wilmer Valderrama and oil heir Brandon Davis, but pals insisted she was just friends with both men.

Brody was most recently dating Playboy playmate Jayde Nicole, but they split in December.

After revealing she and Deryck were to divorce, Avril insisted the pair would remain friends.

She said: "Deryck and I have been together for six-and-a-half years. We have been friends since I was 17, started dating when I was 19, and married when I was 21. I am grateful for our time together, and I am grateful and blessed for our remaining friendship.

"I admire Deryck and have a great amount of respect for him. He is the most amazing person I know, and I love him with all my heart. Deryck and I are separating and moving forward on a positive note."

Paramore ‘The Only Exception’ Video

Fueled By Ramen recording group Paramore are set to release the single 'The Only Exception’ in the UK on April 5th. This track is the third single from their Number 1 Gold certified album 'brand new eyes’.

A deeply personal song for Hayley (Williams, vocals), this acoustic ballad gives an unapologetic glimpse into the inner workings of what was happening in her head over the past two years, a reality that was initially scary for the 21-year-old to advertise to the rest of the world. 'Now that it’s all said and on paper I’m not as insecure about [these lyrics] because I think these songs (on the album) form a full story that people are going to be able to connect with.' The Only Exception touches on how her parents’ relationship has influenced the way she deals with, and thinks about, love.

The video for The Only Exception is available to watch on http://paramore.net now, and features Hayley’s father. Based on a treatment written by Hayley, it was directed by long time Paramore collaborator Brandon Chesbro.

After a sell out UK tour which culminated at Wembley Arena on Dec 19th, the band are currently on a tour of Japan and Australia. Paramore are reported to be coming back to Europe this summer for various festivals. Exact dates to be announced.

Panay kuliglig sa pandinig

Krook Krook
Sayang pero kelangan ng bumalik
Sa mundong puno ng

Paastigan.
Palakasan.
Hindi ito labanan
Hindi ako si Paqman
Nakupu!
Nagkabuhol-buhol
Juskup!

Lady Gaga Is Dating Her Best Friend

The "Poker Face" singer is said to have grown increasingly close to her style manager Matthew Williams in recent months, who she previously romanced for over a year.

A source said: "Matthew and Gaga have been dating for months. They were together on and off for more than a year, but called it off when mixing work and love became too difficult."

After the pair first went their separate ways, Gaga began dating an entrepreneur named Speedy while Matthew started a new relationship and became a father.

However, both romances failed and the former couple have now reconciled after growing close on the star's "Monster Ball" tour.

`My Sharona` Singer Dies Aged 57

Doug Fieger Doug Fieger, singer for The Knack, has died of cancer at the age of 57.

The Knack were best know for writing the classic 1979 hit `My Sharona`.

Lead singer Doug Fieger lost his battle with cancer on Sunday (February 14, 2010). He was 57.

Sharona is a real person. Doug Fieger met Sharona Alperin when she was 16. She is now a real estate agent in Los Angeles.

Guitarist Berton Averre wrote the riff years before he joined The Knack.

Even George W. Bush has the song on his iPod.

The Knack released 'Get The Knack’ in 1979. It was a number one album around the world. The next record 'But The Little Girls Understand’ reached no. 15. The third album 'Round Trip’ in 1981 stalled at no. 93.

The Knack broke up in 1982 but reformed in the 90s failing to repeat the original success.

Fieger had been battling lung and brain cancer for a number of years.

In October 2008 he told undercover.com.au that he was undergoing chemotherapy but his condition had been stable for two years. 'It metastasized to my brain and sent microscopic cells into my body that have, over time, been collected by my lymph system. These are very pernicious and hard to treat'.

Doug had two brain tumors removed in August 2006. "The bad news is that this chemo is the last one that is available to me unless some clinical trial comes up so if it doesn't work I'm SOL ! Oh well .....,' he told Undercover in 2008.

Bruce Gary, the drummer for The Knack died from cancer in 2007 at the age of 55.

The Digital Guitar

I love the new technology use in my generation's music but i hope my favorite band would not use this instead of their typical rocking guitar on stage soon. Maybe someone could say its awesome but for me this totally sucks. LOLz

Kesha Used To Sell Her Clothes To Buy Food

KeshaThe 'Tik Tok' singer had a poor upbringing which she said helps her keep her feet on the ground now she has an international hit single.

She said: "I can't stand pretentious people. I think growing up without money has taught me not to take myself seriously. I'm the same person I when I was selling clothes to buy a taco for dinner, I just have a few extra bucks."

Kesha also said that when she got her first pay packet after becoming famous, she didn't splash out on any lavish or expensive gifts for herself.

She added: "I bought a 1998 Honda car, which I needed. I don't believe in wasting money when there are people in the world who can't eat. If I earn a lot of money, I'll treat myself, but I'm not going to be ridiculous. I think it's kind of gross.

"I don't like spending money on stuff. I may buy some instruments though."

Madonna Forces 200 Villagers To Move House

Madonna’s planned Malawian school has forced 200 villagers to move house.

The singer has reportedly paid out more than $115,000 to compensate the residents of Blantyre, Malawi, after they were ordered by government officials to make way for her $15 million Raising Malawi Girls Academy.

An official from the commissioner’s office said: "The district commissioner for Lilongwe told the villagers to move off the land and make way for the construction of the academy because it was government land reserved for development projects.'

The villagers had reportedly threatened to block the project – which aims to provide education to 500 impoverished children – unless they were given more cash after being paid $500,000 by the 51-year-old star’s Raising Malawi foundation.

However, they were reportedly told by Anjimile Mtila-Oponyo, a senior official for the charity, they had been given "generous compensation" and had no reason to complain.

According to the source, a local chief advised the residents to 'accept the reality as there is nothing we can do".

The group have been relocated to other villages.

Madonna has two adopted children from Malawi, Mercy, five, and David, four, as well as biological kids Lourdes, 13, and Rocco, nine.

Endorsing Candidate 'Tricky' For Singers, Bands

Philippine Election 2010MANILA, Philippines - Aside from television and movie stars, politicians are also turning to popular bands and singers to boost their campaigns this 2010.

Among the latest singers to endorse a candidate is pop star Sarah Geronimo, who has endorsed Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Manuel Villar.

Geronimo was tapped to sing Villar's campaign theme "Naging Mahirap," for a reported sum of P20 million. The NP did not confirm the amount paid to Geronimo.

Lakas-Kampi-CMD presidential bet Gilberto "Gibo" Teodoro, meanwhile, has launched new ads featuring popular band Rivermaya, who are seen in the video performing the theme song "Sulong Gibo."

Some bands, however, insist that though they agree to sing campaign jingles or songs for a candidate, that does not automatically mean they are endorsing him or her.

Ely Buendia of the rock band Pupil said that they have been approached by some politicians' handlers to lend some of their songs or to endorse a particular candidate.

However, Buendia, who used to front the seminal 90s said that they will think thoroughly before deciding whom to endorse.

"Right now, we are not endorsing any candidates. First and foremost, banda kami (we are a band). We are musicians and artists. We try to put politics out of the way. We just want to play music," Buendia said.

Meanwhile, the band Hale said they are ready to perform for a candidate whose platform they believe in. "It depends on the candidate. What's their advocacy?," said one of the band's members.

The band SpongeCola, meanwhile, said that they will endorse a candidate if the 'price is right.' Other bands, such as Chichosci, said that they won't allow politicians to ride on their popularity.

Despite differing stands on endorsements, the bands all enjoined voters not to vote for candidates based on the celebrities who endorse them, but by what a candidate can do for the country.

Sarah Geronimo Endorses Manny Villar

Sarah GeronimoMANILA, Philippines – Pop princess Sarah Geronimo is the newest addition to the roster of celebrities endorsing Nacionalista Party standard bearer Sen. Manny Villar.

Geronimo sang Villar’s latest political jingle titled “Naging Mahirap” during the launching of Katropa, a youth group organized by Villar's daughter, Camille. Geronimo has been named the campaign's ambassadress.

Villar's camp said it recognizes Geronimo's patience and hard work that resulted in her success.

The senator's camp, however, refused to confirm if Geronimo was paid P20 million in exchange for her endorsement.

Geronimo, on the other hand, said she believes television host-actress Kris Aquino will not take it against her once she learns that she is supporting Villar in the coming May elections. Kris’s brother, Liberal Party (LP) standard bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, is currently Villar’s biggest rival in the presidential race.

Aside from Geronimo, Villar had earlier gained endorsements from Comedy King Dolphy and popular noontime host Willie Revillame.

Villar, meantime, defended himself from critics who are hitting him for getting celebrity endorsers and spending huge amounts in his campaign. He pointed out that, unlike the LP standard bearer, he has no popular parents nor strong connections in show business.

Villar also denied claims that he is the real candidate of President Arroyo, and that they made a secret pact assuring President Arroyo's position in Congress.

He said: "Puro paninira. Tigilan na iyan. Matagal ko nang hindi nakakausap si Pangulong Gloria."

MYMP Introduces New Vocalist, Will It Be The Same Without Juris?

Juliet BahalaAcoustic band MYMP has found the replacement for vocalist Juris Fernandez who left the group last October for a solo career. The new vocalist, Juliet Bahala, is an 18-year-old regional singing champion from Davao. She was officially introduced to the public just in time to deliver great music this February. MYMP, which stands for Make Your Momma Proud, welcomes the Valentine’s Month with this new milestone.

The group, with Juliet in tow, is set to do a pre-Valentine’s Day concert at the Music Museum titled “MYMP Now” this February 12. Chin Alcantara, MYMP guitarist and founder, said he was impressed by Juliet’s demo tapes and she is a welcome addition to the group.

It was October last year when Juris Fernandez left the band for creative and personal reasons and pursued her solo singing career. Fernandez signed a contract with Star Records after leaving MYMP.

The group, when Fernandez was still around, was able to do six albums and later on was chosen as the 1st PMPC Star Awards Best Duo/Group Artist of the Year for Music.

Though with new vocalist, Alcantara cleared that the group will not shift from acoustic music to a new genre.

He said they will just explore the vocal range of Juliet so that they will know more the path to follow on.

The band is hoping and praying that fans will show their undying love and support for their music even with new vocalist at hand
