New Pet Shop Boys album coming..This single is really good..There is some fantastic music coming from the Divas and male Divas in our lifetime..Some say we are now entering an Art Renaissance like the 80′s..But we are not there yet…
Russia fights for freedom of expression..But there still two Russian female members from the Pussy Riot Band in jail..Is time time to free them..I love their music..I admire their energy and purpose..
Pussy Riot has captivated the world’s attention since February 2012, when five members of the music and performance art collective performed a controversial song, “Punk Prayer” at Russia’s Christ the Savior cathedral in Moscow. The Russian government reacted to the song’s anti-Putin lyrics (“Virgin Mary, Mother of God, put Putin away”) and anti-religious imagery (“the phantom of liberty is in Heaven”) by arresting three band members and ultimately convicting two of them, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, on charges of “hooliganism.” Alyokhina, 25, on Monday ended an 11-day hunger strike to protest her prison conditions; both she and Tolonnikova have been jailed for over a year.
The imprisonment of Pussy Riot prompted an international outcry. Celebrity musicians ranging from Paul McCartney to Madonna have denounced the conviction as an affront to free expression; the Russian foreign ministry may now deny Madonna future entry visas. When Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova were sentenced in August, the US State Department issued a statement calling their two-year sentences “disproportionate” and urging the Russians to “review this case and ensure that the right to freedom of expression is upheld.” Even Putin’s political protege, the Russian prime minister and former president Dmitry Medvedev called Pussy Riot’s incarceration “unproductive” in September.
Fara and Shaiba arrived in the United States on May 30th and evaded publicity. They said they had a “very productive” meeting with Occupy activists on June 2, their only quasi-public appearance before stepping into the small bookstore. On 10 June, HBO will premiere a documentary about the band, Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer; Fara and Shaiba’s American visit is timed to promote it.
I held this news for a week out of respect for Olivia Newton John’s family..Rona Newton-John, the sister of Australian pop superstar Olivia Newton-John, died May 24 of an aggressive brain tumor, the singer shared Tuesday.
In a poignant message on her Facebook page, Olivia, 64, paid loving tribute to her late sister. The post had been ‘Liked’ over 16,000 times by Thursday morning.
“My beautiful sister Rona sadly passed on May 24th in Los Angeles. It was May 25th in Australia; which was our mother Irene’s birthday” the note began. “Rona died of a very aggressive brain tumor and mercifully suffered no pain. She was surrounded by the love of her four children – Fiona, Brett, Tottie and Emerson and her wonderful friends. I will miss her forever – my beautiful, smart, talented, funny, brave sister Rona. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the ONJCWC, where a brain tumor wellness program will be started in her name. Thank you all for your kind words of love and support.”
The ONJCWC is the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre at the Austin Hospital in Heidelberg, Melbourne, Australia. Donations can be made here. Olivia herself battled and defeated breast cancer nearly 20 years ago and is a huge proponent of cancer awareness.
“Entertainment Tonight” broke the news about Rona’s illness back in April. They also reported that Olivia would be postponing her planned Las Vegas residency in order to support her sister through her difficult journey.
Rona was born in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, in 1943 and came from quite a talented family. According to her IMDB profile, her and Olivia’s grandfather was German physicist Max Born, who was a Nobel prize winner. Their mother, Irene Born, was a writer, photographer, and environmentalist and their father, Brinley Newton-John, was a professor and dean at Cambridge, with an operatic voice.
Rona was an actress herself, who worked in both TV and film. On the small screen she was best known for appearing on “The Benny Hill Show” and the British series “UFO.” On film, she acted in “The Same Skin” (1969) and more recently showed up acting alongside her sister in the 2000 version of Del Shores’s “Sordid Lives.”
At one point, she was married to troubled “Grease” actor Jeff Conaway, who died in 2011 after struggles with substance abuse. They reportedly met at a party during the 1978 filming of “Grease,” in which Olivia starred. They married in 1980, but divorced five years later.
According to ABC News, she had been working for several years on a memoir called “The Dark Side of Charisma,” which was due out this summer.
Jean Stapleton, the versatile actress; who will forever be remembered for her long-running role as the dim-witted but deep-hearted Edith Bunker on the groundbreaking 1970s sitcom, ” All in the Family “, died Friday at her home in New York City, her family confirms. Stapleton, who was 90, succumbed to natural causes. Winning three Emmys for the role, Stapleton played Edith to Carroll O’Conner’s Archie from 1971-79, then asked to be written out of the show as the series continued under slightly different formats.
” ALL IN THE FAMILY ” was the most dysfunctional family ever..But the characters and the plot were so good..Here is a special tribute to Jean Stapleton and ” All In The Family “…
I happen to like, ” Stars Are Blind “..it’s an awesome song
I love to write her another hit song..
England, Dj Boop Betty will be playing my song, ” Christina ” tomorrow on HD1 Radio..Listen to her tomorrow, Thur 1pm to 3pm EST..It’s British Summertime only on HD1 radio..It’s going to be a fabulous time..She has mixed tunes so well..DJ Boop Betty sends lots of love through the airwaves..Hope you can make it..
I guess I should tell you what the song, ” Christina ” really means to me..Christina was a beautiful Venezuelan woman; who was one of my closest friends..She was sweet, out going and a wonderful friend..She was my confidant in a new city for me, NYC.. Unfortunately, she passed away from complications of Cancer and Diabetics..She was only 39 yrs old..I called her one day and her phone was disconnected..I had to call a mutual friend to find out that she was gone..I still think of her..So I decided to create a song for her..I have never performed this song in public because it was too close to me..Perhaps one day I will .. I do feel is not one of my best songs..But the public seems to like; what I don’t like..lmao..One day, I might redo this song..I do think my taste is more sophisticated now..But I thank all of you including DJ Boop Betty; who do like it as it is..
My friend Amber wishing me a Happy Birthday.. thanks to everyone for all those good wishes…
England’s Splash Radio with Chris Duval will be playing one of my songs today at 3pm EST..
I’m very excited because they always broadcast to many countries..This is the advantage of internet radio..
Special thanks to Splash Radio and Chris Duval including my fans..
America got it wrong tonight..They voted her out..But I know Amber will surpass this event..She will come back big time..You watch !! She had Mariah Carey crying because she disagreed with the voting..Just remember, the one’s voted out almost to the end are usually the one’s who make millions..
Yes, the Voice is the best music show for new artists on a major network..It surpasses others because they treat singers with dignity and respect..The Voice judges do not humiliate new singers in front of millions like other shows..So I say, it is the best..Now that they have Shakira it is even better..She really fights for what she believes..Proud to have a Hispanic woman part of it all..
Amber Holcomb hits those high notes almost like Whitney Houston..She is talented, has grace and is a beautiful girl..I know I can be wrong..but even if she is number two or three; she will surpass any other singers from American Idol 2013 any day..A major label would be dumb not to sign her…Amber Holcomb is set to make millions
