Posted by JED on Thursday, October 22, 2009 , under | comments (0)

Jonalyn Viray, Aicelle Santos and Maricris Garcia also known as 'La Diva' will sing the Philippine national anthem in Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao’s much anticipated showdown with Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto on November 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The people’s champ confirmed that 'La Diva,' dubbed as the "Destiny’s Child of the Philippines," will sing "Lupang Hinirang" in the Pacquiao-Cotto "Firepower" clash.

Pacquiao said the three auditioned in the early part of this year. Other artists from networks ABS-CBN and GMA 7 also took part in the audition, he said. The boxer cited Jolina Magdangal as one of those who wanted to sing the national anthem.

The Filipino boxing icon was particularly impressed by the 'La Diva' when he saw them perform. He added that he believes 'La Diva' will do justice in singing "Lupang Hinirang" next month.

The boxing champion also admitted that he was told that international singers Charice and Lea Salonga were interested in singing the national anthem for the fight.

"Pero hindi ko naman sila nakausap. Kung nakausap ko, siguro sila. Pero iyong 'La Diva' kasi, na-oo-han ko na. Mahirap naman at baka masabi wala akong isang salita," Pacquiao explained

John Mayer - "Heartbreak Warfare" Music Video and Lyrics

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

Check out the new John Mayer music video for his second single "Heartbreak Warfare", off his new album "Battle Studies".

The video is the first to feature "augmented reality", which according to Wiki, is a term for a "live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are merged with (or augmented by) virtual computer-generated imagery - creating a mixed reality."

Heartbreak Warfare - Music Video and Lyrics:

Lightning strikes
Inside, my chest to keep me up at night
Dream of ways
To make you understand my pain

Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs are falling everywhere
It's heartbreak warfare
Once you want it to begin,
No one really every wins
In heartbreak warfare

If you want more love,
why don't you say so?
If you want more love,
why don't you say so?

Drop his name
Push it in and twist the knife again
Watch my face
As I pretend to feel no pain

Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs are falling everywhere
It's heartbreak warfare
Once you want it to begin,
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare.

If you want more love,
why don't you say so?
If you want more love,
why don't you say so?

Just say so...

How come the only way to know how high you get me
is to see how far I fall
God only knows how much I'd love you if you let me
but I can't break free at all.

It's a heartbreak...

I don't care if we don't sleep at all tonight
Let's just fix this whole thing now
I swear to God we're gonna get it right
If you put your weapons down
Red wine and ambien
You're talking shit again, it's heartbreak warfare
Good to know it's all a game
Disappointment has a name, it's heartbreak warfare.

Pressure and tension continue to rise inside the Pinoy Big Brother House after Kuya pits the two houses against each other in a daring and challenging weekly task called the "TakFan" Dance.

Inspired by the Youtube hit "The Naked Japanese Fan Dance," housemates have to showcase good choreography and coordination as they dance naked or semi-naked with only fans to cover their private parts.

To get additional points, all girls in House A, including the Transpinay Rica, will wear Tback, while the boys- except Jason, will dance nude. On the other hand, all boys in House B agreed to go all-the-way, while Carol backed out from wearing T-back due to her strict Christian morals, giving her house a 20 point disadvantage.

Watch the "The Naked Japanese Fan Dance" below:

Be sure to catch this exciting episode of Pinoy Big Brother tonight right after "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.

Rihanna - "Russian Roulette" Music Video and Lyrics

Posted by JED on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 , under | comments (2)

Sing with Rihanna's first single titled "Russian Roulette" off from her fourth original studio album "Rated R".

Russian Roulette - Music Video and Lyrics:

Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take a gun, and count to three
I’m sweating now, moving slow
No time to think, my turn to go

[Chorus -- JustJared.com]
And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I’m terrified but I’m not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Say a prayer to yourself
He says close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
And then I get a scary thought
That he’s here means he’s never lost


As my life flashes before my eyes
I’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye
But it’s too late too pick up the value of my life....

Russian Roulette was written and produced by fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo and the Anthony Mandler directed video will premiere on ABC primetime.

Cause I ain't giving up on love
You know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
Cause I ain't giving up on love

You know I ain't giving up on us
You know I ain't giving up on
Oh I ain't giving up on us.

Sandara Park’s Brother Cheon Dung Joins Korea's All-Male Group MBLAQ

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

While Sandara Park continues to conquer the entertainment scene in Korea as part of hot girl group 2NE1, her younger brother Park Sang Hyun (now known as Cheon Dung or "Thunder") has launched his own singing career as part of the newest Korean all-male group MBLAQ (pronounced as M Black), which stands for Music Boys Live Absolute Quality. A lot of fans have already taken interest in Sang Hyun who was first seen in an online video jamming with 16-year-old singer I.U. a few months back. Amateur videos of their acoustic duets have been circulating the net before word got out that he would be replacing one of the original members of MBLAQ.

Though this is his first venture into the entertainment industry, Sang Hyun has been training for a while under the Loen talent agency (the same one who handles I.U.) before he recently transferred to J. Tune Entertainment—a company owned by no less than the ultimate Korean heartthrob, Rain. Aside from being the producer, the latter also took charge of MBLAQ’s dance choreography in the music video of the carrier single of their mini-album, “Oh Yeah” which has already earned lots of praise when it was released just last October 13. Rain is reportedly very proud of his first batch of talents and is confident that they would make it in the biz especially after their well-received debut performance as guests in his recently-concluded concert in Seoul.
