What We’r e L ist e nin g to
Katy Perry
Teenage Dream
Perry is known for her unconventional style of dress. It is often humorous, bright in color, and reminiscent of different decades, and she frequently uses fruit-shaped accessories, mainly watermelon, as part of her outfits. Having learned dancing at an early age, she fancied about having her own style. Perry's transformation into an artist began with fashion, inspired by American film actress Dominique Swain's portrayal in 1997 film adaptation of the novel Lolita. She defines her fashion style as "a bit of a concoction of different things". Johnny Wujek, Perry's stylist, described her style, upon meeting her for the first time, as "very colorful and vintage". In June 2008, a publicity photo that showed Perry posing with a switchblade was criticized.The picture was defended as only an effort to give Perry a "sexy, harder edge". The criticism leveled at her was mocked by Perry who subsequently posed with a spoon instead.

Far East MOvement

Free Wired
Free Wired is the title of their first major debut album from Cherrytree/Interscope Records and was released on October 12, 2010. The album was made available in both the U.S. and Canada. Their tracks include popular artists such as Keri Hilson, Lil Jon, Snoop Dogg (their song co-written by Bruno Mars), Mohombi, Colette Carr, Natalia Kills, and Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic.Their first single to be released for airplay is called "Rocketeer", which will exclusively feature Ryan Tedder. In the October 30th, 2010 edition of Billboard Magazine, their single featuring The Cataracs and Dev titled "Like a G6" peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as iTunes. At the release of Free Wired at Hard Rock Cafe in New York City on October 12, 2010, it was announced that Far East Movement's "Like a G6" went platinum, selling over 1 million singles.

Imogen Heap

Speak for Yourself
A skilled multiinstrumentalist, Heap extensively uses manipulated electronic sounds as an integral part of her music. She also mixes ambient sound into her music (such as the sound of a frying pan in use cooking food, in the background of her song "Hide and Seek") and has commented that "certain sounds give the music a width and a space, and that's important." As a guest player and collaborator she has played rock (Jeff Beck), hip-hop (Urban Species) and theatre/film music.

Angels & Airwaves

I Empire
Soon after forming the band began recording their debut album in Tom's home studio in California. The band recorded from mid 2005 to early 2006. Angels & Airwaves released their first single, "The Adventure", after a fan hacked into Tom's email account and stole four demos from the album. "The Adventure" was leaked onto radio stations, resulting in the band having to release it on May 18, 2006. They released their first album, We Don't Need to Whisper, a few days later, on May 23, 2006. The album reached 4th on the Billboard 200, and went gold. The band toured for most of 2006 and early 2007 and then retreated to the studio at the start of the year to work on the follow-up.

Mumford & Sons

Sigh No More
Mumford & Sons are an English folk rock band. The band is made up of Marcus Mumford (vocals, guitar, drums, mandolin), Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboards, accordion), "Country" Winston Marshall (vocals, banjo, dobro), and Ted Dwane (vocals, string bass).[1]. Although the band members have claims on certain instruments, the members switch instruments during live shows according to convenience, for they each play a variety of instruments. The band formed in late 2007, rising out of London's folk scene with other artists such as Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn, Jay Jay Pistolet and Noah and the Whale.

Ke$ha

Animal
Kesha uses a sing-song rapping style on a number of her songs, which she admitted had begun as a joke,[4] most notably on her debut single "Tik Tok". The New York Times stated that the song represented "the complete and painless assimilation of the white female rapper into pop music."[17] The Los Angeles Times compared this vocal style to that of L'Trimm and Salt-N-Pepa.[47] Kesha has been criticized for using Auto-Tune and vocoders to distort her vocals on her album Animal.[48] Billboard stated that the heavily processed vocals "[made] it hard to tell whether [Kesha could] actually sing."[49]

K r isten Stew ar

The rst decade of the 21st century, which is about to draw to a close, is in serious danger of being remembered as the time when fame was measured in pokes, tweets, and the ability to parlay a death-defying (and sometimes not so death-defying) degree of persona recklessness into a reality-television deal. But just as the door was about to slam shut on the double aughts, in walks—or, more appropriately, saunters—Kristen Stewar At 19, Stewart has already earned a place in the annals of pop-culture history. This is due to her starring role in Twilight, which—in case you’ve somehow managed to elude word of its all-encompassing death grip on young America—is a lm based on the rst in a series of very popular books about vampires, werewolves, and teenage life in the town of Forks, Washington. Stewart’s character, Bella Swan, is a newcomer to Forks who is forced to cope with the dueling pressures of starting life at a new school and the fact that her prospective boyfriend, the rakish Edward Cullen (played by the rakish Robert Pattinson), is a 104-year-old undead bloodsucker. Given Twilight’s preoccupation with the timeless themes of misunderstood youth, troubled young love, and the intervening forces of darkness, the lm’s success isn’t all that surprising. (To date, it has grossed more than $380 million worldwide.) Nor is the fact that more Twilights are in the o ng: A second installment, New Moon, hits theaters in November, and a third, Eclipse, is due out next year. But the growing size and complexity of the Twilight machine has had some unavoidable implications: In the last 12 months, Stewart has become a tabloid regular and a blog-stalked cynosure. The fact that her Twilight character is romantically linked to Pattinson’s in the lm has also fueled nonstop speculation that they are involved in real life. BUYING A HOUSE? and GETTING MARRIED? were just a couple of the early autumn headlines. Between lming Twilight sequels, Stewart did a turn as Joan Jett in Floria Sigismondi’s new rock-band biopic The Runaways; even her hair for the lm—which was chopped and dyed to mimic Jett’s late-’70s shag—inspired reams of media critique. promo, november 2010

5 thin g s

u didn't kno w yo

1. I’ve been bitten by a shark.
1. As an Australian living in the U.S., have you spotted any differences between Aussie and American women? Australian women tend to tell it like it is—even if it's the brutal, honest truth. I think American women usually break it to you a little easier. There's a softer side to them. 2. What's one mistake you see women making in relationships? Trying out the "I love yous" after a week or two [of dating]. You have to give it time before you start [saying that]. I like exploring the mystery of a relationship instead of laying it all out on the table at the beginning. 3. Care to let us in on your most embarrassing dating moment? I arrived at this girl's house and her dad answered the door. The guy was huge—in my head, he seemed close to seven feet tall and 300 pounds. He looked down at me and said, "Can I help you?" I said, "Yeah, I'm here to see—" and I forgot the girl's name! I was just looking up at him thinking, Oh, God, please don't squash me! 4. You're totally ripped. How much work did you have to do to get that way? I'm somewhat of a masochist at heart. I like to sweat. I come from a very competitive sporting background—my dad was a world-champion surfer—so it's always been a part of my DNA. I do a lot of soft-sand running, hiking, yoga, and boxing, and I compete in triathlons. But I don't have a strict diet. If I want a beer, I'll have a beer, and I've always been a chocoholic. 5. Any hidden talents? I'm undefeated in Scrabble. I can figure out an opponent's strategy and mold mine to offset theirs. I play a couple times a week, and I'll often play a game on my bed by myself against myself, which I realize sounds completely mad.

2. The harder I work, the luckier I get. 3. I find it hard to trust anyone who doesn’t like animals. 4. 5.
I’ve never stayed awake for a musical. Whenever people agree with me, I always feel like I must be wrong.
