I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind
I'm building a still to slow down the time
I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind
I'm building a still to slow down the time
I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind
I'm building a still to slow down the time

I'm lost in the World, I'm down on my mind
I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night
down for the night
said she's down for the night

I'm lost in the World, I'm down on my mind
I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night
down for the night
said she's down for the night

You're my Devil, you're my angel
You're my Heaven, you're my Hell
You're my now, you're my Forever
You're my freedom, you're my Jail
You're my lies, you're my truth
You're my war, you're my truce
You're my questions, you're my proof
You're my stress and you're my masseuse
Mama-say mama-say ma-ma-coo-sah
Lost in this plastic life,
Let's break out of this fake ass party
Turn this in to a classic night
If we die in each other's arms we still get laid in our afterlife
If we die in each other's arms we still get laid

I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind
I'm building a still to slow down the time

I'm lost in the World, I'm down on my mind
I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night
down for the night

(Who will survive in America)
(Who will survive in America)
(Who will survive in America)
(Who will survive in America)

I'm lost in the world, I'm down on my mind
I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night
down for the night

I'm lost in the world, I'm down on my mind
I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night
Down for the night
Said she's down for the night

Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Let me know
Girl I'm gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Here we go

I'm betting you like bebop
And i'm betting you love creep mode
And i'm betting you like girls that give love to girls
And stroke your little ego
I bet i'm guilty your honor
But that's how we live in my genre
When in hell I pay rottweiler
There's only one flo, and one rida
I'm a damn shame
Order more champagne, pull it down hellstream
Tryna put it on ya
Bet your lips spin back around corner
Slow it down baby take a little longer

Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Let me know
Girl I'm gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Here we go

Whistle baby, whistle baby,
Whistle baby, whistle baby

It's like everywhere I go
My whistle ready to blow
Shorty don't leave a note
She can get any by the low
Permission not approved
It's okay, it's under control
Show me soprano, cause girl you can handle
Baby we start snagging, you come in part clothes
Girl i'm losing wing, my bucatti the same road
Show me your perfect pitch,
You got it my banjo
Talented with your lips, like you blew out candles
So amusing, now you can make a whistle with the music
Hope you ain't got no issue, you can do it
Give me the perfect picture, never lose it

Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Let me know
Girl I'm gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Here we go

Whistle baby, whistle baby,
Whistle baby, whistle baby

Go girl you can work it
Let me see your whistle while you work it
I'mma lay it back, don't stop it
Cause I love it how you drop it, drop it, drop it, on me
Now, shorty let that whistle blow
Yeah, baby let that whistle blow

Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Let me know
Girl I'm gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Here we go

Whistle baby, whistle baby,
Whistle baby, whistle baby

Kelly Clarkson "Dark Side" Music Video and Lyrics


Here's the music video and lyrics for Kelly Clarkson's newest song "Dark Side" from RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.





There’s a place that I know
It’s not pretty there and few have ever gone
If I show it to you now
Will it make you run away

Or will you stay
Even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out
Will you return?
And remind me who I really am
Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Like a diamond
From black dust
It’s hard to know
It can become
A few give up
So don’t give up on me
Please remind me who I really am

Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Just tell me that you will stay
Promise me you will stay
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Just promise me you will stay
Promise me you will stay

Will you love me? ohh
Everybody’s got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody’s a picture perfect
But we’re worth it
You know that we’re worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?

Oooo x4

[Verse 1]
I got a fast pass to the front of the line
And I'm rolling out with some friends of mine
I got the Midas Touch wherever I go
It's gold, it's gold, yeah wherever I go

[Pre-Chorus]
Out, let it out tonight
Pour another shot of whatever you like
Can't feel better than this
If I played the lottery I'd probably win

[Chorus]
I'm on a roll
I'm hitting every every green light
I'm on a roll
I couldn't lose a hand if I tried
I'm on a roll
My ex wants sex tonight

I'm on a roll
I must be doing something right
I'm gonna live tonight
Like it's the best night of my life
Like it's the best night of my life
Like it's the best night of my life
I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll

[Verse 2]
Life's good, you know I ain't gonna lie
I'm gonna light it up like the 4th of July
If I can keep it up, I ain't sleeping tonight
Cuz up til now it's been a hell of a ride

[Pre Chorus]
Out, let it out tonight
Pour another shot of whatever you like
Can't feel better than this
If I played the lottery I'd probably win

[Chorus]
I'm on a roll
I'm hitting every every green light
I'm on a roll
I couldn't lose a hand if I tried
I'm on a roll
My ex wants sex tonight

I'm on a roll
I must be doing something right
I'm gonna live tonight
Like it's the best night of my life
Like it's the best night of my life
Like it's the best night of my life
I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll
I'm gonna live tonight like, like, like, like
Like, like, like

[Ben J]
I'm on a roll like dice in Vegas
Say hi to the world I made it
I couldn't do it without the haters
Accountants in bank, no habla ingles
Ugh, late night
Got a fifth left mix it with that sprite
Hey Stefano, we both livin' life
It's the best night

[Stefano]
Out, let it out tonight
Pour another shot of whatever you like

[Chorus]
I'm on a roll
I'm hitting every every green light

I couldn't lose a hand if I tried
I'm on a roll
My ex wants sex tonight

I'm on a roll
I must be doing something right
I'm gonna live tonight
Like it's the best night of my life
Like it's the best night of my life
Like it's the best night of my life
I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll

As previously reported here (please read related news HERE), Anne Curtis temporarily bids "Its Showtime" goodbye.

Mawawala po ako for one month. I’ll be back, I promise. My Showtime family, mami-miss ko kayong lahat. Mami-miss ko kayong lahat, even the madlang pipol.

"Gusto ko lang po magpasalamat sa Showtime family [ko] for believing in me and allowing me to pursue my dreams. To ABS-CBN for allowing me to take this leave. Thank you all of you for understanding." the teary-eyed Anne announced.

The show has been the home to Anne for almost three years now, but the performer-actress decided to go on a one month leave to pursue another milestone for her career - a Hollywood crime thriller film titled "Blood Ransom".

The movie will be produced by Tectonic Films (the same movie outfit who made "Subject: I Love You" which starred Jericho Rosales) and will be directed by Fil-Am Francis de la Torre. Anne will be the only Filipino in the film, which will star an all-American cast.

Big Brother Gives His Teen Edition 4 Housemates a Cosplay Challenge


The Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 housemates enjoyed the cosplay task given to them by Big Brother as they were able to display their creativity.

They were challenged to create costumes inspired by “Super Inggo and Super Tropa”. This task was handled easily by house mate Myrtle Sarrosa, coined as the “Cosplay Cutie of Iloilo”.

An accounting student from the University of the Philippines - Diliman, she drew so much public attention because of her weird but cool anime-inspired costumes. This creativity earned the respect of fans who supported her by parading in front of the Big Brother house clad in anime costumes when she was nominated alongside fellow housemates Karen and Nikka last May 1.

Cosplay, short for costume play, is the newest and biggest teen (and teen-at-heart) craze today. It is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. It has become an outlet of art and expression of the youth and became viral among Filipino teens as influenced by different Japanese animes and famous western superheroes such as Spiderman, Batman, The Avengers and many more.

Fans of animes and cosplays will be excited to hear the return of the hottest, biggest and boldest cosplay event in the Philippines – Hero Face Off. With the third installment of this only televised ultimate cosplay battle, dubbed as the Hero Face Off 2012, the event will gather thousands of cosplayers from all over the country.

Different categories are open to all aspiring ultimate cosplayers. The “Kids Squad” category is for those little kids, ages 12 y/o and below, and possesses an unbelievable anime look. The “League of Heroes” on the other hand, is for the group cosplayers, with an age range of 13 to 30 y/o. And the “Face Off” category, the ultimate category of the event, is for those individual cosplayers ages 13 to 30 y/o that has this ultimate anime over-all impact.

The winner of the Hero Face Off 3 will take home P30,000.00 and will have a chance to attend and experience the fun and thrill of the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention in September with Hero Face Off 2 winner Jan Erick Torres.

Hero Face Off Theatrical Screening will also highlight beloved anime movies such as Gin Tama and Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time that will surely be a hit for the cosplayers and guests. Moreover, a special surprise band will also perform.

Catch this on July 7, 2012 (Saturday) at SM Megatrade Hall 1. Registration starts at 10:00 a.m. and the program starts at 2:00 p.m.

HERO TV, the No. 1 anime cable channel in the country, is seen on Sky Cable Channel 44 and is available in over 200 cable operators nationwide. For more event details/channel updates, log on to www.myheronation.com and check out HERO TV on Facebook and Twitter. HERO TV — Bida Ka. Dito!

Rocco Nacino Shines in ‘The Good Daughter’

Rocco Nacino Shines in ‘The Good Daughter’


Former StarStruck finalist Rocco Nacino, who was named Second Prince at the conclusion of StarStruck V, must have felt odd about the title he earned.

Some people may have gotten the impression that he is destined for second-fiddle jobs.

Wait. Fast forward to February 2012 and here we see Rocco playing the lead role in a drama series. He is leading man to actress Kylie Padilla, portraying the character of Darwin Alejandro who is described as the rebellious love interest, ally of the troubled Bea Guevarra (Kylie).

The high-rated teleserye also stars Raymond Bagatsing, Alicia Mayer, and Max Collins. Its plot revolves around Bea whose mother dies – a shocking turn to a nice life as her father remarries and brings home a stepmother she disapproves of.

The rising Rocco Nacino is fast pulling away from the shadow of having to come off from StarStruck, gaining grounds after delivering good performances for significant roles awarded him. He acted as national hero Jose Rizal in “Pluma”, danced his way as Jason in the genre-bending “Time of my Life,’ and played a crucial part in “Mistaken Identity”, the first morning drama series produced by the GMA ETV group.

He also had remarkable stints in the successful series “Amaya” and “Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak.”

Whereas he can serve as a viable dramatic actor, his versatility has made him a bankable comic act as well. He is regularly seen in “Bubble Gang” sharing screen time with the likes of Michael V and Ogie Alcasid. Recently he stood as “Tadijack”, spoof of Jack Dawson in James Cameron’s “Titanic” movie, for the documentary about the doomed ship for the Drew Arellano-hosted program “Aha!”

One of the truly promising GMA Artist Center heartthrobs, Rocco is displaying some great dance moves on Party Pilipinas on Sundays.

Ana ‘The Hurricane’ Julatons vs Mexican Yolanda ‘La Negra’ Segura “Laban ng Lahi: Bagyo Sa Mexico 2” Airs on GMA-7

Ana ‘The Hurricane’ Julatons vs Mexican Yolanda ‘La Negra’ Segura “Laban ng Lahi: Bagyo Sa Mexico 2” Airs on GMA-7


The 31-year-old Filipino-American boxing champion Ana Julaton, known in the combat sport as “The Hurricane”, pulled a successful comeback in the ring against Mexican bet Yolanda “La Negra” Segura, who, despite an almost unblemished record of seven knock outs in eight wins, proved only a boxing junior to survive the catastrophic blow of Julaton.

In a match billed, “Laban ng Lahi presents Bagyo Sa Mexico 2: Ana Julaton versus Yolanda Segura,” Filipino boxing fans will witness the Philippine television premiere of the duel staged in Kanasin, Yucatan, Mexico last May 4. The match will air exclusively on GMA Channel 7 this Sunday, May 27, at 11:05 AM before Party Pilipinas.

The 25-year-old Segura, though backed with a home court advantage, failed to establish her power punching rhythm and finished the 10-round fight behind on points from Julaton. The female Mexican boxer was also fined one fourth of her earnings for weighing four pounds heavier than the set weight limit.

Julaton, meanwhile, made an impressive win in the second sequel of her three-fight deal with GMA Network.

The first ever Filipina boxer to bag several world titles and make it to the list of 100 Most Influential Filipinas in 2009, with a score card of 10 wins, one knock out, and three losses, Julaton reclaimed her throne as one of the best female fighters of the renowned sport.

We all learn as we go and that will not happen again,” Julaton said in reference to her loss via unanimous decision to Yesica Marcos of Argentina last March. “This is all about winning. I owe my Filipino fans around the world the title back and that is my mission.”

Making her way back to the ring in better shape just six weeks from the loss, Julaton displayed pure boxing excellence before the Mexican natives and millions of Filipino followers almost half-way across the globe from Mexico.

Don’t miss the blow-by-blow ring action as Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton brings Filipino pride to greater heights. The boxing special “Laban ng Lahi presents Bagyo Sa Mexico 2: Ana Julaton versus Yolanda Segura” airs this Sunday, May 27, 11:05AM on GMA Network.

Kathryn Bernardo and Khalil Ramos Will Have a Special Date this Weekend in Cebu

Kathryn Bernardo and Khalil Ramos Will Have a Special Date this Weekend in Cebu


Kapamilya primetime princess Kathryn Bernardo and singing heartthrob Khalil Ramos are all set for a special out-of-town trip this Sunday (May 27) in Mactan, Cebu.

In the first-ever “Princess and I” Royal Caravan to be held at Gaisano Capital Island Mall at 4pm, Kathryn and Khalil will bond with their Cebuano fans and personally thank them for consistently making their ‘royal teleserye’ one of the country’s most-watched shows.

With the TV ratings success of “Princess and I” and the rise of supporters of ‘Kath-Lil’ (Kathryn-Khalil) love team, the “Pilipinas Got Talent Season 3″ runner-up admitted that everything that has happened with his showbiz career so far still overwhelms him.

At first, I was a bit hesitant to accept the role of Kiko since I didn’t have any experience in acting plus the fact that the cast was made up of very good actors,” Khalil shared. “But then I realized that being a part of this huge project is a once-in-a-lifetime chance, so eventually I decided to step up and take the challenge.”

When asked about the ‘secret to success’ of their drama series, Khalil said that the uniqueness of their plot is a key factor. “It’s like a first in the Philippines, a Koreanovela-inspired series with a perfect mix of romance, drama, and mystery,” said Khalil..

Aside from the exciting adventures and family-oriented values taught in the story, “Princess and I”s avid viewers nightly indulge in the cute love story of Kathryn Bernardo’s character Mikay and her three ‘princes’ namely Gino (Daniel Padilla), Jao (Enrique Gil), and Kiko (Khalil). As the young teen leadstars create a fanbase, avid viewers have placed their bets on who they think Kathryn should end up with and created teams such as Team Gino, Team Jao, and Team Kiko.

Even as a beginner, Team Kiko never fails to express their undying support for Khalil especially when he recently sang Kiko’s song for Mikay ‘Kung Ako Ba Siya’ in “ASAP 2012″ which instantly became a trending topic in the microblogging site Twitter.

Like the avid supporters of Team Kiko, Khalil revealed that he too believes that his character is the ‘one’ for Mikay. “I think Mikay should choose Kiko because no one knows Mikay like Kiko. Kiko is that the one person she can always count on and a best friend’s love is much different than a boyfriend’s. Boyfriends come and go but best friends never leave,” he said.

Khalil further shared that his relationship with Kathryn on- and off-screen is very much the same. “We’re best friends in real life. She is one of the kindest persons I’ve ever met.”

Like most men, Khalil’s ideal girl is someone kind, sweet and God-fearing. “I can say that I can fall in love with a girl like Kathryn, but it’s currently hard to say anything since I’m still getting to know her. For now, we are best friends, and I would like to know her more,” he explained.

Meanwhile, now that Kiko, Gino and Jao are studying in the same university, how will they all try prove their love to Mikay? Will this create friendship or a tough competition to win the heart of Yangdon’s missing princess?

Don’t miss “Princess and I” weeknights after “TV Patrol” on Primetime Bida. For more updates, log on to http://www.abs-cbn.com/ or follow @abscbndotcom on Twitter.

Grace Lee Hosts ‘Cooking with the Stars’ on GMA-7


We all know they’re capable of acting, singing, dancing, and hosting, but how are our favourite celebrities in the kitchen?

We will soon find out as GMA-7 and San Miguel Pure Foods Company Inc. (SMPFC), are launching a new cooking show that will feature the country’s top showbiz and lifestyle personalities.

Beginning May 28, TV host and radio deejay Grace Lee banners “Cooking with the Stars,” the newest addition to GMA Network’s morning block.

It’s a cooking program that showcases delectable, easy-to-prepare dishes that will have viewers’ nationwide craving for more.

A culinary student off-cam, Grace is a perfect fit for the show.

I am very much thankful to GMA and San Miguel Pure Foods for trusting me with this project. I recently finished culinary school and my past time are reading cookbooks, researching recipes – so mahilig talaga akong magluto at mahilig din talagang kumain. Kaya when I eat, I eat with gusto!” she says.

This is the first time that we are doing a show with this format, and we are happy to have Grace host it,” says Chef Maricel Manalo, Culinary Services Manager of SMPFC. “As one of the trusted food companies in the country, we always aim to provide our consumers the best in terms of flavor, quality, affordability, and food safety. This show is for them, and we hope to be able to help Filipino consumers make wise, cost-efficient, and of course, delicious choices when it comes to preparing food for their families everyday.”

Grace adds: “The good thing about our new show is that the dishes are easy to prepare. Pwede siyang gawin at i-serve ng kahit sino – the products that we use are readily available and of really good quality, sigurado ka pa na malinis! Here at the show, we always tell our viewers that for your food to be good, you start with products and ingredients that are delicious, safe and practical at a reasonable price. Sulit talaga if you use San Miguel Pure Foods products.

Joining Grace Lee in creating mouth-watering dishes for every occasion are top chefs from the San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center, led by Chef Maricel Manalo and Chefs Martin del Prado, Rene Ruz and Kai Verdadero.

Of course, it wouldn’t be “Cooking with the Stars” without the country’s brightest stars. Every episode will feature a celebrity who has a food-related dilemma, which the show’s chefs will solve at the end of every program.

Another twist to the show is “Cooking Star of the Barangay”, where the show will visit barangays, bringing with them a live brass band and dancing food servers, which will definitely get residents of these barangays in fiesta mode.

To be shot at SMPFC’s state-of-the-art San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center, “Cooking with the Stars” starts airing on May 28 every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:55 to 10:05 a.m. on GMA 7, with replays on GMA News TV every Tuesday and Thursday (7:00-7:10pm) and Saturday at 6:45 to 6:55 p.m.

The X Factor USA Season 2 Airs on Studio 23


Studio 23 announced that it has acquired the rights to air the highly-anticipated second season of the hit talent search “The X Factor USA” via satellite very soon with judges Simon Cowell, L.A.Reid, and newly-signed and talked about judges - singer-actress Demi Lovato and multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Britney Spears.

After months of rumors and hearsays that the two will be filling in on the vacant seats left by former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, Britney and Demi made it official to the public during Fox’s presentation for its 2012-2013 offerings held in New York recently.

I couldn’t be more excited to join ‘The X Factor’ judging panel. I’m a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action. Simon and L.A. better watch out!” said Spears in an official release from Fox.

For 19-year-old ‘Camp Rock’ star, she is just thrilled just by being part of such a legendary group of judges. Lovato said, “To be able to spend each week with Simon, L.A. and Britney watching the best that America has to offer is truly a dream come true.

“The X Factor” producer and notorious talent show judge Simon Cowell expressed how happy he is that Britney and Demi are officially on board. “I’m absolutely delighted Britney and Demi are joining us,” he said. “Britney remains one of the biggest stars in the world, she’s talented, fascinating – and I believe she knows exactly how to spot the ‘x factor.’ Demi’s had an amazing career in music, TV and film for someone her age. She’s young, confident, and enthusiastic. I think it’s really important that she speaks to our younger audience. The new panel will be dynamic and will work really well with the changes we are making to the show.”

Cowell is yet to announce who will host the second season of “The X Factor USA,” replacing season one host Steve Jones.

Spears is one of the most successful and celebrated entertainers in pop history. Her musical career boasts nearly 100 million albums sold worldwide and countless awards and accolades, including the 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award and Billboard’s Best-Selling Female Artist of the Decade (1998-2008). So far, Spears has earned a total of five No.1 debut albums and 24 Top 40 songs in her career.

Meanwhile, Lovato is an accomplished singer and actress with a devoted and engaged young fan base. Her single, “Skyscraper,” off of her most recent album, “Unbroken,” recently went platinum, while the video for her new single, “Give Your Heart a Break,” already has garnered 10 million YouTube views. Her first album, “Don’t Forget,” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and her second album, “Here We Go Again,” debuted at No. 1.

This June, Filipinos will also have the chance to show their ‘x factor’ as ABS-CBN localizes the worldwide hit franchise and produces “The X Factor Philippines” with KC Concepcion as host and Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Charice, and Pilita Corrales sitting on the judges panel.

Donnie ‘Ahas’ Nietes Spars with Robin Padilla


Viewers enjoyed the guesting of WBO light-flyweight titlist Donnie ‘Ahas’ Nietes and Toni Gonzaga in the sitcom “TODA Max” where he played as the cousin and trainer of Toni. He was also given the privilege to spar with Robin Padilla.

According to Nietes, he enjoyed the company of the cast of “TODA Max” and salutes comedians after realizing how difficult it is to make people laugh. He said that doing comedy is like boxing because delivering the lines should have a “punch” so it will hit and make a knockout moment.

He also invited “TODA Max” viewers to watch Pinoy Pride 14 this June where he will face Mexican Felipe Salguero.

Alongside Nietes, two Filipinos, Milan “Metodico” Melindo and Genesis “Azukal” Servania, will fight in the upcoming battle. Nietes will defend his WBO light-flyweight belt for the first time, while Melindo will try to take the vacant WBO intercontinental flyweight title by fighting against Colombian Jesus Gelez. On the other hand, Servania will give his everything in his fight against pressure fighter Genaro “Poblanito” Garcia for the vacant WBC International Silver Super Bantamweight title. Garcia was a no-show last March in Pinoy Pride XII against Rey “Boom-Boom” Bautista in Bohol but now there’s no stopping him.

Pinoy Pride 14 will be held in Resorts World Manila on June 2 (Saturday) and will be shown on ABS-CBN on June 3 (Sunday), 10:15 a.m. with encore telecasts on the same day on Studio 23, 1:30 p.m. and on Balls, June 8 (Friday), 4:30 p.m. Live Pay-Per-View on June 2 (Saturday) is available on Balls HD and on TFC (Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Milan, London, and Sydney).
