Chris Brown & Rihanna – Birthday Cake

Posted in Cigars with tags , , , , , , , on February 21, 2012 by Eray

Birthdays are a chance to forgive, and if you are singer Rihanna, its a great chance to show forgiveness by recording a song with the person you want to forgive.
Check out ‘Birthday Cake’ that’s just been released featuring Chris Brown. Brown was convicted of beating Rihanna up a few years ago but it seems all is forgiven in the world of music.

so does this mean the sentence for beating a woman is ‘a duet’??

Al Murray and the Q Awards 2011

Posted in Man About Town, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2011 by ManAboutTown

So not your normal Monday this week… we hung out with Coldplay, Tinie Tempah, Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, Biffy Clyro, Bon Iver, Noel Gallagher, Gary Barlow and U2! And what do they all have in common? They were all winners at THE music awards event of the year and we were there to get in the way/witness it all.

These awards marked the climax of Q’s 25th anniversary year in spectacular style at a star-studded Q Awards 2011. Taking place at London’s Grosvenor Hotel they were hosted by Al Murray in the guise of his alter-ego The Pub Landlord. In all, a total of 18 awards were handed out – celebrating the very best new music of the last year and beyond.

Among the big winners was Adele, who bagged two awards (for Best Female Artist presented by Nivea Visage and Best Track presented by Q Radio for Rolling In The Deep), Tinie Tempah (Best Male Artist presented by Merc), Coldplay (Best Act In The World Today presented by First Drinks Brands), Ed Sheeran (Breakthrough Artist), Jessie J (Best Video presented by QTV for Do It Like A Dude), Biffy Clyro (Best Live Act), Bon Iver (Best Album), Manchester collective WU LYF (Best New Act presented by Orange Amplification) and Lana Del Rey, the US internet sensation who was crowned Next Big Thing.
The ceremony concluded with a very special award for U2 – who were voted The Greatest Act Of The Last 25 Years (presented by BlackBerry) by Q’s readers.

This year, as there has been at previous ceremonies,  there were also artists that received special merit awards… Noel Gallagher (Q Icon), Take That’s musical mastermind Gary Barlow (Classic Songwriter), Fatboy Slim (Q Inspiration presented by YouYou Mentoring), Snow Patrol (Classic Song presented by Zippo for Chasing Cars) and rock legends Queen, who were entered into Q’s Hall Of Fame.


Also in attendance at the Q Awards 2011 as part of a stellar line up of talent were Example, Chase + Status, Nero, Snow Patrol, The Vaccines and a host of other top names.

Commenting on this year’s awards, Q’s Editor In Chief Paul Rees said: “This year’s awards were a true celebration of where music is at right now – being as they were reflective of how rich and varied the musical landscape is, and of how enthused music fans are to be able to discover so much that is new and exciting. It is Q’s job to reflect this passion, variety and scope for new music – and we will be doing so bigger and better than ever before in the months ahead.”

All in all we thought it was an absolutely amazing day and with so many talented people in one room it meant we were left with no choice but to party like a rock star!!

Chase + Status and Fat Boy slim headline at London’s Cafe de Paris and from what this blogger can remember is was the icing on a particularly fine cake!

Pitbull is linked to a number of brands including Voli  Light Vodka, and in once scene the stars are seen sharing their ‘favourite’ drinks together….Good sports . Whoe said Vodka and Rum doesnt mix?

Here’s the video:

Facebook Music Leaks… on Twitter

Posted in Tech & Gadgets with tags , , , , on September 22, 2011 by Eray

Facebook Music is launching tomorrow, which has been spreading all around the net, however nobody knows exactly how this will work within the Facebook site.

But 1 Facebook employee accidently let it rip and leaked the details……on Twitter?!?!?

Ji Lee, the creative director that Facebook, sent out the following tweet earlier:

The “Listen with your friend” feature in ticker is blowing my mind. Listen to what your friends are listening. LIVE.
Within minutes, Lee deleted the tweet, but the damage was done. A screen grab was taken and then the tweet spread like Virtual Wildfire.

Not only will all music you’re listening to appear in the just-launched right-side ticker, there will be a link to “Listen with your friend”, that when clicked, will allow you to listen along to the same song at the same time.

An Epic Fail on Lee’s part, or was it a genius PR move to get tongues wagging? Either way, its worked and now everyone is excited to see the new feature…as soon as we can work out how the new Facebook layout works.

No doubt, this feature is already live on Lee’s Facebook account, and he probably didn’t realize he wasn’t supposed to talk about it yet.

Earlier, Lee used his Facebook account to leave the status:
Ji Lee is listening to Black & Blue by Mike Snow and feeling happy it’s another beautiful sunny day in California.

The new service should be announced publicly at F8, as well as an idiots guide to the new Facebook Layout
