MTV VMA Awards 2013

My addiction to VMA started when I was in Grade School. Those were the times I was really into Nsync, Backstreet Boys, M2M, A1, Westlife, Eminem, Pink, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, All Saints, Spice Girls, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera – All the hits from the late 90’s and early 20’s. MTV was like the IT shows of the youth and music lovers back then. You’re one of the cool kids in school if you will put in a Slumbook of a friend that MTV is one of youre favorite show. I remember during high school how I always forgot to turn off the TV before going to sleep and waking up with the same channel and watch MTV until after I ate breakfast. For me the VMA’s were such a big event, even if I’m just at home watching the show. Unfortunately, things have changed! It’s no longer that anticipating, performances are predictable and without any quality! Even the hot hot hot Adam Levine tweeted about it!

Blue Sky

 

Currently, my mind is cluttered and I’m a bit sad and depress. Whenever I feel this way I listen to inspiring and empowering songs, just like this song by the band called Hale. They were one of my favorite bands during my college days not only because Champ Lui Pio is such a cutie, but because their songs are pretty good and inspiring. This song Blue Sky gives me hope, faith and positivity. Whatever things might happen or whatever obstacles that may come along our way, by looking at the bright side of life you’ll get over through it and happiness will come our way.  My favorite line of the song, “You just look out the window and see the light It’s beautiful to be alive It’s wonderful to live a life.  The sun is sure to shine for you and me for everyone, so don’t be sad it’s just the start of a new beginning in your life. There will always be a Blue Sky, a Blue Sky waiting tomorrow full of hope”.

 

I know I’ll feel better.

Lotus Album Launch Party

LOTUS is  the 7th Studio Album of my queen Christina Aguilera (@TheRealXtina). One of her best album because it’s empowering and motivating and expresses freedom! According to your royal highness as posted on her Twitter account, “Lotus represents an unbreakable flower that survives under the hardest conditions and still thrives”, which I believe is truly inspiring.

It’s been 3 months since it was release and it only sold 210,000 copies flop???,WHATEVER!!! Anyway, the first single Your Body (which I already blogged) topped the Hot Dance Club Songs on Billboard  and was named video of the year by fuse.tv beating out Katy Perry, Gaga and Justin Bieber. The second single was Just A Fool duet with co-mentor on “The Voice” Blake Shelton, which is very heartfelt, even Kelly Clarkson gushed about this song. And just recently, she sang (I guess) her third single Blank Page at The People’s Choice Award which she was honored and given the award as The People’s Voice. Lotus is now a certified Platinum album and Gold in Canada.

November 19. 2012 was the official release date here in the Philippines. I knows it’s TOO late to blog it, but I don’t wanna miss this one because this is about Xtina and about the Fighters and Unbreakable Flowers (Xtina’s Stans) here in Manila. Actually it was supposedly on the 16th, luckily it was moved on the 19th because if it wasn’t rescheduled I might miss it because that was also the “Silver” concert of Regine Velasquez.

A friend joined me and decided to meet at around 4pm at Odyssey in SM Megamall, as usual I was late and arrived around 6:30 PM. . The party  has  not yet started when I arrived and there were like 30 or so Xtina fans who attented the event and most of them were gays. I excitedly fell in line and bought the album until I saw a very disturbing albums!!! CD’s of GAGA!

The Party Must Go On. Move on na kay GAGA!!!

They also had games all about XTINA which I din’t participate coz I was shy. They had  prices like posters, stickers, magazines, DVD’s, Albums and other stuff. They also served wine, which I was not given!!!

The event was pretty boring and awkward. The stans were timid and a bit shy and seems like they didn’t want to make the first move to get to know other people (ouch I’m guilty!). I was not really on my best behavior that night maybe because I got to listen to the Tulfo Brothers over the radio while on the way to the mall, which made me feel irritated and changed my mood, I super hate them.

Though the album launch was not that uber fun which I thought it would be, I liked and appreciated the fact that we were there to support our idol. I saw in their eyes how happy and excited everyone were while listening to Lotus. I think they had a great time coz after the launch they went somewhere for a drink and hopefully next time, Xtina Stans will rock the next album launch. Who knows, it might be this year?! I loved how the Fighters and Unbreakable Flowers UNITE for their Queen. Cheers to all the loyal fans of Christina Aguilera.

My Experience at Regine Velasquez Live in Concert (SILVER)

The Queen, The Gay Icon, The Diva and my FAVORITE Asia’s Song Bird Regine Velasquez is currently celebrating her 25th years in showbiz (26 years to be exact). 26 years of a very successful and colorful career, 26 years of inspiring fans through her music. I’m proud to say “Ate Reg you are irreplaceable. You Own The Throne!”

She just had a successful concert at the Mall of Asia Arena entitled Silver which I attended and I’d like to thank my friend Medz for the VIP tickets! I was very fortunate to watched her live in concert for the very first time. I witnessed how such an amazing singer she is, though she was not in the proper condition to perform, according to her she got a virus, the main reason why she lose her voice. Despite the hoarseness of her voice, she still managed to sing live and was able to entertained thousand of Pinoys. Fans supported her even if she didn’t do all the BIRIT stuff she is well known for.

Before the concert

November 16 (Friday) around 5 pm, my pretty cousin Nesh woke me up coz I got a phone call (through our landline) from a friend checking If I’m already awake. It’s a good thing he called me because I turned off the alarm clock I set at 4 pm hehe. He even reminded me to shave unwanted hairs around my face and not to be late for the concert. Ok fine! hehehe… 🙂

I was in a rush prepping up and while I was ironing the jeans I’m supposed to wear, I found out that it’s not yet washed. Damn It!

Gross noh? So changed oufit ako.

I got stuck  in Quiapo because of the traffic. Medz keeps on calling me to check If I’m near the venue, so mediyo nahahagard na ko kasi nga I hate it if friends and other people are waiting for me. Char! Funny thing was I even latched on a jeepney (sumabit sa jeep, Nag Google pa ako niyan.hehehe). Deadma lang, I still managed to smile and calm down.

Yaaayy I finally arrived in Mall of Asia. I was waiting for Medz to call me, coz I didn’t have any prepaid left. Good thing there was a prepaid station on the way to Arena. Waited on the line and while walking I just found out that I purchased the wrong prepaid card or should I say the sales lady/that bitch gave me the wrong card.

How am I supposed to call a friend??? Seriously??? This Prepaid Card is only valid for international calls.

I decided to move along and walked really far. Medz was texting me saying that he’s already inside, unfortunately he didn’t have any prepaid left to call me. I went throughout and walked around the Arena and when I couldn’t see a glimpse of him I decided to go back to that fucking prepaid station and purchased another card. Fell in line and the guy in front of me was being an asshole demanding to manually load the prepaid on his cellphone. Can you imagine the delay he’s causing? That’s the time I lost my temper so I shouted at him and literally pushed him away. I showed him how S can be a BITCH! Commotion!!! Anyway, by the time I got the prepaid, I immediately called Medz while running fastly at the same time. The  Guard/Traffic Enforcer was trying to stop me because I crossed the lane even if the Stop Light was on red. Manong guard tried to chase me while whistling, mega takbo pa din ako. When I looked back at him he was like “Bahala na nga siya! Unstoppable Gay!: hehehe 😉

The staff of the Arena was very accommodating. It’s a very good thing that I was on the VIP lane, I din’t have to fall in line. The Arena is such a big venue for concert that it can accommodate 15,000-20,000 people. Anyway, I was sweating like hell by the time I got inside, I was so tired, my legs was in pain, I even got bruises on my feet because of my shoes. 😦

As expected concert was delayed for about almost an hour (Filipino Time), but everything was worth it when Regine Velasquez showed up on her opening wearing a silver, shining and shimmering dress paired with a very fab Kermit Tesoro Silver shoes. She sang Where Have You Been by Rihanna mash-up with her song Shine. She also wore creation from Pepsi Herrera and Rajo Laurel. After the opening, Hot Legs performed and Regine came back again on stage wearing a fabulous silver gown with pinkish feathers which I really loved. She started saying sorry and even crying because she didn’t have voice. She wanted everything to be perfect because it was her comeback concert. I felt the frustration when Regine was trying to hit the high notes but she couldn’t. Thousands of fans inside the Arena were crying and was saddened but supported her all the way till the very end. She cried a lot while she was performing and I felt her eagerness to put up the best show possible. I got teary eyed and the concert was full of emotions.

My favorite performance was her duet with Lani Misalucha, the duet of Ogie Alcasid and Janno Gibbs “OJ Segment”, Michael V. who danced Gangnam Style with Ogie and Janno, Anton Diva duet with Reg singing On The Wings Of Love and when Lani sang Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin (breathtaking).

I spotted some A-Listers celebrities who who came to support Regine; Kris Aquino, Aga Mulach, Vice Ganda, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Lucy Torres, Cristalle Belo, John Sweet Lapus, Eugene Domingo, Toni Gonzaga, Jhong Hilario, Grace Poe and Jennylyn Mercado.

Celebrities like Anton Diva, John Lapus and Vice Ganda went on stage to help Regine entertain the crowd. It was not part of the show and it was a good thing these comedians are really good doing impromptu shows.

Before the end of the show, Regine confirmed to us that she’ll be doing a repeat concert for FREE!!!! We just have to keep our tickets.

After the concert we went straight to Starbucks. Take Note I didn’t have dinner! I just ate Sandwich and Donut, which was fine because Regine entertained me despite of her condition.

Can you spot Jhong Hilario?

Currently It’s almost 8 AM of Nov. 17 and I’m not yet sleeping. That’s true! When I arrived home after the concert at around 1:30 AM, I immediately faced my lap top and I’m still wide awake!

Conceited Me

Cafe Americano from Starbucks keeps me energize and awake. Or, maybe I still have hang over because of the concert?! In Your Eyes, Araw Gabi and Dadalhin keeps on playing on my mind.

What about you guys? Whats your favorite Regine Velasquez Songs? Will you still watch her perform live in concert even if she doesn’t have a voice?

THOUGHTS?

Stay Fierce and Fab

Everyone’s a DIVA! xoxo

There were moments last week that I felt so sad, depressed and demotivated. A lot of contributing factors to be considered and all I wanted to do was to cry and eat bunch of chocolates.

There are points in our lives that we feel down, demotivated and we feel like we are alone. That’s pretty normal and I guess it’s somewhat healthy that you have these moments but what important is, what/who you can become of after after the realizations that you came up with, which I hope will make us a better person.

Any other songs that you would like to recommend?

I hope you like the songs. In all fairness this entry helped me realized that life is indeed wonderful.

I can’t wait for “Your Body”

One of the greatest feeling that a person can ever achieve is when you are very confident and comfortable with Your Body. There’s only one person that perfectly describes this, it’s non other than the Queen herself, Christina Aguilera. She’s been very open and vocal of how proud she is with her own skin and sexuality, which is very unusual for a woman. She’s a perfect desrciption of a modern woman and I think all girls should be like Xtina.

People of the world especially the Fighters and Bionic Armies (Name of Xtina’s Fan-based) will be super excited about what Xtina has to offer this coming days. After her last album Bionic, which I must say is one of the best album of the 20’s, now she’s ready to rule the world once again with true quality music.

Her first single which is entitled Your Body produced by Max Martin which will premiere on September 17 in The Voice (the number 1 reality singing competition in the US). She already filmed her music video which I believe, it will be awesome, hot and sexy. The lyrics of the single is somewhat provocative and once you listened to this song, you can’t help but dance.

She even teased fans by tweeting pictures of her Album Photoshoot.

I’m not a fan of Purple but this one looks great on Xtina!

Does she own a Department Store? Look at these accessories!!!

One of the most fashionable women in the music industry who’s always taking  risk when it comes to fashion.

First Day shooting of Your Body.

Here are some photos on the set.


As you have noticed, there’s a lot of Pink which I really love. The Wig and the shoes are really fabulous and that Bat and the Pink GMC pick-up truck is really cool! I also love her Little Black Dress, it’s so fashionable and it really fits her really well. On her interview on Lucky Magazine she was qouted “Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage,” she tells the magazine,” Well, I couldn’t disagree coz Your Body is one of a kind.

Are you ready? Make sure to join her on Twitter!

I am so excited with her album. I’m 100% pretty sure that it’ll be a huge hit worldwide.

Make sure to grab a copy of her new album. It will be fab and worth it. Xtina Owns The Throne
