Taylor Swift - "Fifteen" Music Video and Lyrics

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Check out the world premiere of Taylor Swift’s brand new music video "Fifteen" which features her real-life best friend Abigail Anderson.

Taylor has said, "Fifteen talks about how my best friend, Abigail, got her heart broken when we were in ninth grade and singing about that absolutely gets me every time."

The song is the fourth single from her 2008 album Fearless.

Fifteen - Music Video and Lyrics:




You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
Its the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you aint seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybodys way
Its your freshman year and youre gonna be here
For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
You know i havent seen you around, before

Cause when youre fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
Youre gonna believe them
And when youre fifteen
Feeling like there nothing to figure out
Well count to ten, take it in
This is life before who youre gonna be
Fifteen

You sit in class next to a redhead named abigail
And soon enough youre best friends
Laughing at the other girls who think theyre so cool
Well be out of here as soon as we can
And then youre on your very first date and hes got a car
And youre feeling like flying
And youre momas waiting up and you think hes the one
And youre dancing round your room when the night end
When the night ends

Cause when youre fifteen and somebody tell you they love you
Youre gonna believe them
When youre fifteen and your first kiss
Makes your head spin round but
In your life youll do greater than dating the boy on the football team
But i didnt know it at fifteen

When all you wanted was to be wanted
Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now
Back then i swore i was gonna marry him someday
But i realized some bigger dreams of mine

And abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his mind and we both cried

Cause when youre fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
Youre gonna believe them
And when youre fifteen, dont forget to look before you fall
Ive found that time can heal most anything
And you just might find who youre supposed to be
I didnt know who i was supposed to be at fifteen

La la la la la .. la la la la la .. la la la la la

Youre very first day
Take a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through those doors.

UAAP and ABS-CBN Sports Renew Partnership for Another 5 Years

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



ABS-CBN Sports and the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) renewed their contract for another five years last Sunday (October 4) at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

With another five years, the UAAP and ABS-CBN will be partners up until 2015, marking 15 years of unrivalled partnership that has not only been durable but also unbeatable in lifting college competition to a whole new level.


"I hope that in the coming years, ABS-CBN will show them that their confidence and trust in our broadcast organization is well-founded, as we continue to try to be in the forefront of all technological improvements," ABS-CBN chairman Eugenio "Gabby" Lopez III said. This year, ABS-CBN brought UAAP to the digital era by airing the live basketball games in high definition, a first in the history of local television.

UAAP President Anton Montinola of the Far Eastern University, on the other hand, expressed his appreciation to the Kapamilya Network and like Lopez, hopes for a more fruitful partnership in the coming years.

"ABS-CBN Sports has been excellent partners for the UAAP. As witnessed in the last several years, the popularity of the UAAP has increased. We have been very successful and we hope to take our success to the next level," Montinola said.

The UAAP has been the breeding ground for the country’s top college players during the last few years and in partnership with ABS-CBN Sports has developed to become the most popular sports league in the Philippines.

Present during the contract signing were ABS-CBN Chairman Gabby Lopez III, ABS-CBN Vice-President for Sports Peter Musngi, ABS-CBN Chief Finance officer Rolando Valdueza and Studio 23 head and ABS-CBN Senior Vice-President March Ventosa.

Representing the UAAP were UAAP President Anton Montinola of Far Eastern University and UAAP Board of Trustees members Ricky Palou of ADMU and Noel Buenaventura of De La Salle University. The other UAAP Board members were on hand to witness this historic event.


Arnel Pineda Wows Oprah Anew

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



American rock band Journey, featuring Pinoy singer Arnel Pineda, guests for the second time around in the Oprah Winfrey Show to promote their latest album, "Revelation" and the new "Journey in Manila DVD."

The said episode was aired last October 5 in the United States.

After singing their hit song "Don't Stop Believing", the band members talked about their experience when they first heard Arnel in a YouTube video back in 2007.

Journey’s guitarist Neal Schon narrates that he found this video in YouTube featuring Arnel performing at the Hard Rock Cafe in Manila. Arnel was singing the Journey song "Faithfully" and he could not believe that such a small guy like Arnel could have an amazing vocal prowess.

Neal contacted his co-members Jonathan Cain (keyboard), Deen Castronovo (drums) and Ross Valory (bass) who were equally impressed with Arnel. He told them: "The guy got great pipes, does he speak English?"

Valory said he had GS or "goosebumps surplus" when he first heard Arnel sing.

Castronovo said: "It was frightening just to hear that voice come out from that little guy. We couldn’t believe it. It’s just so strong. And the best part about it was just how humble the man was, how humble human being, beautiful heart."

Oprah describes the discovery of Arnel "a divine order that show so boldly".

"I’m facing you [Winfrey] right now. You are [one of the] biggest [names] in show business and I’m facing you. It’s like… I’m not allowed to be here but I’m here. And I thank God for that," Arnel said.

"I’ve seen enough pain and poverty in the Philippines. I’ve never been that big. All I wanted was to be able to get out of it — the pain and the poverty – and live decently everyday," he added.

Because Arnel's success story inspired many people around the world, it was reported that his life story will be made into a biopic titled "Don’t Stop Believing: Every Man’s Journey."

Journey also performed "Faithfully", the song he was singing when he was discovered in YouTube, and Oprah together with her studio audience were all blown away.

Ex-President Joseph Estrada and Pinoy Filmmaker Brillante Mendoza Will Be Featured in CNN's Scene by Scene-Films of Asia Pacific

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Philippine ex-President Joseph "Erap" Estrada and Pinoy filmmaker Brillante Mendoza will be featured in separate episodes of Scene by Scene—Films of Asia Pacific. The documentaries will be aired on CNN International this October.

Hosted by CNN's Anna Coren, the four 30-minute documentaries celebrate the cultural diversity and outstanding quality of the films being produced in the region.

Erap was interviewed by CNN on the set of his upcoming Star Cinema film Ang Tanging Pamilya. He is cast as the father of Toni Gonzaga and he acts opposite comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas. Sam Milby plays the Fil-Am boyfriend of Toni's character.

In the official website of CNN, it gave this episode guide:

"Removed from office in a bloodless coup amidst massive protests in 2001, former Philippine president Joseph Estrada, once an action movie star, returns this year to the big screen with his first film since his ousting over allegations of incompetence and corruption. Estrada starred in 120 movies in a 26 year acting career and used film as a launching pad for his political ambitions. 'Scene by Scene' visits Estrada on the set of his new comedy where he plays a minibus driver trying to deal with his daughter's plans to marry her Filipino-American boyfriend. At 72 years of age, Estrada is poised for a star comeback—in both film and politics."

The episode featuring Erap will be aired on October 17 (9:30 pm) and October 18 (3:30am & 4:30 pm).

Meanwhile, Direk Dante caught the attention of CNN when he won as Best Director in the 2009 Cannes Film Fest for his film Kinatay. Scene by Scene takes a look at the Philippines' thriving independent filmmaking scene and speaks to the director shortly after his Cannes win about being at the forefront of the Filipino new wave.

Aside from being featured on Scene by Scene, Direk Dante was also featured on CNN's Talk Asia, which was aired last August.

This episode will be aired on October 11 (12:30am & 7pm) and on October 12 (2:30am & 10am).

This series of documentaries is released to drum up excitement for the 2009 Asia Pacific Screen Awards. In last year's edition, the Nora Aunor-starrer Himala was chosen as the Best Asia Pacific Film of all Times through an online poll.

Judy Ann Santos Covers Preview Magazine October 2009 Issue




Judy Ann Santos is one of the few famous faces to have graced the cover of Preview magazine for the fourth time. Thrilled to be doing something different from the usual studio shoot, the actress tells with excitement, "It's really exciting. Every Preview shoot that I have, they really give me something new."


Even more exciting is the chance every reader has of winning what Judy Ann is wearing on the cover (click here to join the promo).

The challenging shoot with photographer Paolo Pineda required Judy Ann to pose and walk around wildly growing talahib at Nuvali in Laguna, which she referred to as revisiting her "Ula" days.


Judy Ann never complained about the heat or the location, even as she was required to walk back and forth across the tall kogon grass many times. Perhaps that gorgeous pair of boots helped, for the actress laughed and smiled throughout the shoot.


It's a good thing that she was clad in layers of chic knitwear, as one shot also had Judy Ann reclining on the grass in an idyllic pose.


Asked about her favorite piece from the bohemian rock-themed shoot, which featured trendy label Mango's F/W 2009 collection, Judy Ann replied that she was partial to the plaid and checkered pieces, although she wouldn't mind bringing the fur vest and dresses when she travels abroad.

Preview Magazine October 2009 issue is now available at all magazine stands nationwide.
