Matt Bennett, who according to IMDb was born in Massapequa, New York in 1991, started acting around the age of 13 and had his first screen credits in 2009. His first major project was a film called “The Virginity Hit”, produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, among others. “Victorious” really put it on the map, though. He said, of his similarities to Robbie (per Northern Transmissions), “We’re soft-hearted guys with a penchant for strumming guitar and falling for girls out of our league.”

He and Robbie have become more similar over time. “When we started ‘Victorious’ the characters were less fleshed out, and as we progressed the writers learned our strengths and weaknesses and wrote to them,” he said in 2016. “Robbie really grew with me for the duration of the show and vice versa. In the end, we weren’t too different. I guess my current difference would be four years of life experience and a new pair of glasses.

He says “Victorious” changed everything for him. Although his TV and film credits aren’t extensive, he has played some interesting roles. He returned as Robbie in “Sam and Cat” in 2014 and had roles in the films “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “The Stanford Prison Experiment” in 2015. He had high-profile guest appearances at television, including “Fresh Off the Boat”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Shameless” and “The Big Bang Theory”. In the latter show, he played Howard Wolowitz’s (Simon Helberg) previously unknown half-brother Josh.

Stromae Releases Intimate Live Performance Video For

Belgian rapper, singer and songwriter Stromae has released a revealing and heartbreaking new single titled “Hell”. The single was accompanied by two new music videos, including an official music video and a live performance of the single on live French television.

In his new single, the musician reveals his battle with mental health issues, including in the lyrics an admission that “I’ve thought about suicide a few times and I’m not proud of it”. Musically, the song reflects the same heartbreak and angst its lyrics convey, alternating between slow, hopeless piano playing and a huge haunting chorus featuring an array of different voices.

The artist’s official and live music videos convey a sense of intimacy and vulnerability, forcing viewers to confront Stromae who looks you straight in the eye as he speaks to your soul. Rather than a live music video in front of an audience, the artist’s live performance video begins in the middle of an interview, beginning in the middle of a conversation. Rather than standing on a stage, the artist stays seated and sings directly in front of the camera. Stromae doesn’t need a massive scene or excessive visual effects to get his point across – he just wants you to see him and listen to what he has to say.

“Hell” was released as a promotion for Stromae’s upcoming album, Multitude, slated for release in March. “Hell” follows the artist’s previous single, “Sante”.

Alabama Democratic Governor Candidate Wants To Decriminalize Marijuana And Take The Lottery https://lotusandrose.com/alabama-democratic-governor-candidate-wants-to-decriminalize-marijuana-and-take-the-lottery/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://lotusandrose.com/alabama-democratic-governor-candidate-wants-to-decriminalize-marijuana-and-take-the-lottery/ An Enterprise businessman who considers himself a conservative Democrat has said he will work to decriminalize marijuana and invest more money in Alabama classrooms with a state lottery if the voters chose him as their next governor.

An Enterprise businessman who considers himself a conservative Democrat has said he will work to decriminalize marijuana and invest more money in Alabama classrooms with a state lottery if the voters chose him as their next governor.

Chad “Chig” Martin, 53, qualified to run for the Democratic nomination in the May 24 primary. Martin and Yolanda Flowers of Birmingham are so far the two candidates to qualify with the Democratic Party. Qualifying ends on January 28.

Martin grew up in Wiregrass, where he operates Thunder Industrial, a repair and maintenance parts company, Honeysuckle Hemp, which sells CBD products, and a mobile home park that his parents started over 50 years ago. year. Martin played college football and recorded country music songs.

Martin said a conversation with a friend of his daughter’s prompted him to run for governor in 2018. The young woman taught at a public school and explained to Martin that he paid for school supplies from his own pocket.

“If our teachers don’t have the basic school supplies they need, how are they supposed to do their jobs? Martin said. “And these are the people to whom we entrust the lives of our children with long stretches throughout the year.”

Martin has launched a writing campaign on Facebook for this 2018 election and believes he is off to a good start in developing a base of supporters. But as this year’s election draws near, he decided he couldn’t win without choosing a party.

“I am an independent at heart and always will be,” said Martin. “And the Democratic Party looked like an opportunity that suited me perfectly. The Republican Party was a party full of millionaires usually with a lot of money. And when I saw this opportunity with the Democratic Party, I aligned myself with a lot of values. And it looked like it would be my best chance to face Kay Ivey here in Alabama state. And that was the goal. “

Martin said one of his first priorities as governor would be convincing the legislature to approve a constitutional amendment to allow voters to approve a lottery to fund education. Alabama lawmakers introduce lottery bills every year, but none have been passed since 1999.

“There are a couple of things I want to do right off the bat,” said Martin. “And the first is to get these lawmakers to move once and for all and get the lotto bill passed. We’ve been talking about it for years and it’s still dying.

“I want to be a governor who works with all parties. I want to work on both sides of the aisles. And I want to pass the lotto bill. And I’m going to work hard and stay on top until it’s passed. And obviously, this will give our cash strapped education system a much needed relief. “

Last year, Ivey backed a proposal for voters to allow statewide lottery, casinos and gambling regulations, but this was not passed by the ‘Legislative Assembly.

Martin said he believes marijuana is a safer drug than alcohol and that he would like to see it legalized and taxed to boost Alabama’s economy and tax revenues. He’s skeptical whether Alabama’s medical marijuana industry, approved by legislature last year, will be open to companies like his company Honeysuckle Hemp to compete fairly when dispensary licenses are issued. . A medical cannabis commission is still working on setting up this program. The products are not expected to be available until next year.

“I want to open up the free trade of cannabis in the state of Alabama without regulation, and not just allow certain groups or companies to participate,” said Martin.

He said cannabis could be taxed at a rate high enough to increase funding for education, mental health care and infrastructure.

Martin said he believes decriminalizing marijuana will help the justice system and reduce overcrowding in prisons and prisons.

“Alcohol is much more dangerous than cannabis,” Martin said. “People can buy whatever they want freely and get drunk as much as they want now. And they are much more dangerous than people who use cannabis.

Martin’s official name is Charles Glenn Martin. Martin said his sister started calling him Chad when he was a baby. Chig, short for chigger, was a nickname given by his teammates when Martin first started playing sports.

He played football for the Enterprise High School Wildcats and attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on a football scholarship.

“I was a tight end at Enterprise High School, but when I got to Chattanooga I liked that buffet line a bit too much and moved on to the attacking tackle,” said Martin.

Martin graduated in criminal justice and returned to Alabama. He worked in sales until Thunder Industrial was founded. His other company, Honeysuckle Hemp, is three years old.

Martin said he had never played or sang a guitar before he was 41, but he has since toured with a band, “Chad Chig Martin and The Alabama Outlaws,” and released music videos, including ” Dime a Dozen ”and“ Lower Alabama, ”which can be found on YouTube.

He has also designed and sold fedoras and cowboy hats online.

Martin said he would use his entrepreneurial skills to recruit employers for the state.

“I don’t want to just start a team of industry recruiters,” Martin said. “But I want to be the leader of the team.”

He said he would make it a priority to fight pollution and protect Alabama’s natural resources.

“My main mission, and this is what my entire campaign comes down to, I want to improve the quality of life for Alabamians and their families,” said Martin. “Every decision I make will always be on my mind.”

Besides Martin and Flowers, Dothan activist Christopher Countryman has announced he is running for the Democratic nomination but has yet to qualify, according to the party’s website.

Besides Ivey, who is running for her second full term, other Republicans who have qualified or announced their candidacy for governor include Lindy Blanchard, businesswoman and former Slovenian ambassador to the Trump administration, Lew Burdette, president. from King’s Home, an organization that helps abused women and children, toll bridge developer Tim James, Pastor Dean Odle, Springville Mayor Dave Thomas and former Morgan County Commissioner Stacey Lee George.

Divyanka Tripathi reveals her husband Vivek Dahiya’s reaction to her “Babul Da Vehda” music video https://lotusandrose.com/divyanka-tripathi-reveals-her-husband-vivek-dahiyas-reaction-to-her-babul-da-vehda-music-video/ Sat, 08 Jan 2022 01:30:00 +0000 https://lotusandrose.com/divyanka-tripathi-reveals-her-husband-vivek-dahiyas-reaction-to-her-babul-da-vehda-music-video/ TV Queen Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya has wowed audiences with her outstanding acting and equally stunning looks over the years.

TV Queen Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya has wowed audiences with her outstanding acting and equally stunning looks over the years. After starring in several popular TV shows and reality shows, the actress is now winning hearts with her debut music video “Babul da vehda”.

The song is a painfully sweet track that brings out the right emotions with the voice of Asees Kaur. Composed by Meet Bros, the song says a lot about a father-daughter relationship and is a tribute to all the women who leave their maika after marriage.

When asked what made her agree to sink her toes into a music video, Divyanka said, “I’m always ready for good content, and I think there is no artist. which is limited to whether he wants to be an artist for television or cinema. We never think we are an artist for a particular segment. An artist is always an artist, whether he is doing theater or advertising. Plus, because we don’t depend on any particular platform, whenever we get an opportunity, we grab it. By the time I heard about it, I was completely sold. I thought it was something I wanted to do. I had no reason to say no to him. I felt that if I say no to this, I will certainly regret it in the future.

The ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ actress adds, “I’m glad ‘Babul da vehda’ is my first music video. I made the right choice by choosing this one. I used to get offers often. for music videos, but it was the first song I heard, and my mind was like, “I have to be a part of this one.” As far as the experience goes, it was almost like making a real movie. because luckily there was an emotional storyline that I loved. When we see a random music video, we see people dancing, or there isn’t a relevant storyline behind the song. But in this one, there is good storytelling.

The song was shot entirely in the Punjab, and it was also the actress’ first time filming in the state. “The shooting took place in a setting in the Punjab, and this is the first time that I have a shoot in the Punjab. I loved every moment, especially the people and the food, of course. I heard a lot of good from Punjabi cinema, but it was the first time that I saw the same thing. They are very sorted on what they shoot, they knew what they wanted and filmed this song very nicely and precisely, ”explains Divyanka.

Earlier this week, just before the song’s release, Divyanka asked her fans to watch her with tissue paper because she’s emotional.

When asked if she got emotional after watching the video, she replied, “Well let me not talk about myself because I am very critical as an artist. Any job I do, I don’t like it for at least three years (laughs). Now when I see my scenes in ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’, I love it so much. I actually started to like my old shows now, but when they are freshly shot I tend to find mistakes in them. But as far as this song goes, I found it wonderful, and that guarantee came when I showed the video to others. When I watched Vivek (Divyanka’s husband), which is my best reviewer, he was in tears, and that was the first approval I got that what we created is really cool.

Divyanka’s family also loved the clip. “After the song came out, my sister, my parents and everyone got emotional. I think it’s not easy to make someone cry. You can pretend you’re laughing, but making someone cry is difficult. So luckily I get all these great videos from family and friends affected by this song, ”she adds.

When asked if the song’s wedding and bidaai sequences reminded her of her parents or her bidaai, Divyanka replied, “Well, to be honest this clip was very emotional for me because I didn’t didn’t cry during my bidaai. I already knew my husband and the family I was going to; I had time to understand them. So during the filming, it was a foreign feeling for me.

This clip was very moving for me because I did not cry during my bidaai

Divyanka Tripathi

Elaborating on how she prepared for it, Divyanka shares, “I had no experience with it, and that’s why I had to go to the depths. I watched countless YouTube videos just to get it. an idea of ​​how a girl cries during bidaai.I also studied what families go through at that time and as a result, I was able to achieve this even though it was hard work for me. During the filming for this, from morning till night, I was so exhausted, and it might sound weird, but I was throwing up on the way home after filming because I was so emotional.

In the song, Divyanka’s character shares a close bond with her father, which is expressed deeply during the bidaai scene. “My father has always been very protective of me. I think all the strength that I have today or whatever I have achieved or aspired to be is just because of my daddy. When I was born people would say, “Beti hui hai”, but my father would say “Ye beti kisi bete se kam nahin hai”. Even now, if difficulties arise, the first call I get is from my dad, ”she concludes.

Asked about her upcoming projects, Divyanka says, “I’m open to good content. I’ve heard a lot of good scripts and bad ones too (laughs) and so far I haven’t decided which project I’m going to do. next. I’m looking for content that will take my creativity to the next level and I would love to be a part of it. “

Bryan Adams wants to direct a movie.

The 62-year-old singer has also carved out a successful career as a photographer and he believes his skills would be transferable to film as well.

He said: “I would indeed be interested [in making a film]. I can easily see myself as a director of photography, maybe even a director.

“I remember working with Laszlo Kovacs, who did ‘Easy Rider’, on one of my first videos.

“He had a drink around his neck and was constantly watching the cloud formations waiting for the right light. Pure genius!

Bryan believes technological developments have completely changed the landscape of photography.

He told Ramp Style magazine, “With smartphone cameras that can capture every moment, anyone can become a photographer.

“The future will be more interactive and intense, and there will be more cameras documenting everything all the time.

“Police body cameras have infrared capabilities to check your body temperature, there will be more drones… these are just a few examples.

“That doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing, because we now see the world like never before.

“One of the most important things is that people use their cameras to document atrocities. Everyone is a photojournalist.

“From eco-terrorism to George Floyd, photos and videos have completely changed our world overnight.”

Although he has photographed a range of people and places over the years, it is his portraits of his family that matter most to the “Heaven” hitmaker.

When asked which of his photos said the most about him, he replied, “Photos of my family. I cherish them more than anything.

“I sat down with my grandfather and photographed him when he was 89 years old. We talked about his time as a Royal Engineer during the World Wars. He was so humble. I miss my grandparents terribly.

Dua Lipa helped celebrate the New Year earlier this week with a special performance at the LuisaViaRoma for UNICEF gala in St. Barts.

Wednesday’s intimate affair, held beachside at the iconic Eden Rock Resort, brought together a hall of celebrities, philanthropists and activists, with proceeds from ticket sales and a sale live auction to support UNICEF’s work in providing resources to children around the world.

Lipa, who mingled with the guests and was spotted having dinner sitting next to attendees like Leonardo DiCaprio (dutifully masked between bites), DJ Bob Sinclar and Cuba Gooding Jr., took the stage around midnight local time. , to perform energetic 25 minutes. set of his most popular songs.

Dressed in a sparkling strapless top and flowing lime green pants, the singer opened with fan-favorite “Physical,” from her second studio album, Nostalgia for the future, and traveled through a tightly choreographed ensemble that also included hits like “New Rules” and “Don’t Start Now”.

As Lipa’s Elton John duo, “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” is currently storming the charts, fans hoping to hear the track – and guests buzzing with a potential John appearance. – were disappointed, because the singer entirely omitted the song from her setlist. . Still, she closed with a crowd pleaser, performing an extended version of “Levitating” – Billboard’s Hot 100 Song of the Year – flanked by her backup dancers and a room full of standing guests (DaBaby’s rap verse on the track has been replaced by a dance break, natch).

Lipa’s performance followed an evening of inspiring speeches and videos about the work UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) has been doing around the world for years. The organization is now active in more than 190 countries and territories, supporting everything from development work to child safety.

It was also not the first time that Lipa had shown her support for UNICEF. The singer went with the organization to visit Syrian refugees in Lebanon in 2019 to support UNICEF’s efforts in the region. She was also a strong supporter of World children’s day, one of the biggest initiatives of the United Nations Children’s Fund.

The St. Barts event was the fifth annual LuisaViaRoma Gala for UNICEF, which was launched with a inauguration party in Italy in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, in 2018. While previous events have featured artists like John Legend, Ricky Martin and Katy Perry, the luxury e-merchant CEO Andrea Panconesi said Lipa’s spirit and sense of community make her the perfect fit to feature this time around.

“She’s young and she’s special, and she represents individuality and conscience,” Panconesi says. “I met her in Paris a few months ago and we talked about doing something for UNICEF and she was excited about the idea. Of course, ”he adds,“ my kids love music and are huge fans, so they were happy to see it too. “

Panconesi announces Lipa as a source of inspiration for a new generation of change agents. “All the saints in history have said, ‘By doing good to others you are doing yourself good,’ but I really believe that the younger generation is much more aware of this than I was when I was young. , he said. “It comes naturally to them, whether it’s supporting one business over another, buying an environmentally friendly bag or coming here to raise money for the kids; they make you feel positive for the future.

According to LuisaViaRoma, the St. Barts event raised over € 4 million, thanks to sponsors and a live Sotheby’s auction that offered everything from Elvis Presley’s Harley Davidson to guitars. signed by Queen’s Brian May and Chic’s Nile Rodgers. A Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT, meanwhile, won nearly 400,000 euros.

While LuisaViaRoma is known for its highly organized selection of luxury clothing, accessories and home goods onlinePanconesi says events like the UNICEF Gala are simply an extension of the company’s ethics to bring people together. “Music kind of crosses borders and cultures, just like fashion and art,” he says. “I see [events like this] almost like “international relations” because everyone speaks the same musical language, no matter who you are. With music and fashion, he says, everything is international; everything is connected. “

HHow would you define “success” for a musician? That their song receives millions of views on YouTube? Or superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan can’t stop listening to it on repeat? Or that it became the hottest song of the year on social media? Yohani De Silva, a 29-year-old singer from Sri Lanka, saw it all happen with her song ‘Manike Mage Hithe“in just seven months. 2021 might have been a bland year for many of us, but for Yohani, the feeling of overnight fame she’s received this year, especially from India, never grew. is not yet felt.

Yohani always thought accounting was her Plan B. After graduating in Logistics and Masters in Accounting, she never thought that the transition to music would be an easy task.

“Switching to music is something we don’t even learn in school. Music is considered an extracurricular activity. No one teaches us to be an artist or a musician. I think this has been the biggest challenge for me. But what matters is that you are happy with what you are doing, ”she said in an interview, encapsulating pretty much the sentiments of any other Indian millennial or Gen Z passionate about the arts.

Make the celebrities dance

The 29-year-old was not known in India until August this year, but it all started when the cover of the Sinhala song, originally created by Sangeeth, Satheesan Rathnayake and Dulan ARX in 2020, translated into by “baby in my heart”, started trending on the reels. On August 15, one of Hindi cinema’s biggest superstars, Amitabh Bachchan, shared a video made by his granddaughter Navya Naveli showing her dance of ‘Jahan teri yeh nazar hai‘edited and perfectly synchronized to the Sinhala song. He wrote: “Manike playing on repeat all night … can’t stop listening to him … SUUUPPEEEERRRB.”

In October, the Sri Lankan singer grooves actor Ranveer Singh and teaches Salman Khan lyrics on Bigg Boss. The song has already garnered 196 million views on YouTube in just seven months and nearly nine lakh reels have been created on Instagram. From Parineeti Chopra to Jacqueline Fernandez and Tiger Shroff, various Bollywood celebrities have followed the song. The singer has already signed for a song in Ajay Devgan’s upcoming film Thank God and also recorded another Hindi song for the film Shiddat.

Besides celebrities, the song has also inspired musical artists from all over India to cover it in their language. It has so far been sung in at least 21 different languages ​​in India, from Santali to Dhivehi. ‘Manike Mage Hithe‘has also marked its presence around the world. A video of young Ukrainian violinist Karolina Protsenko playing the song on her violin has also gone viral.

No formula to go viral

Short video formats grabbed everyone’s attention in 2021. After TikTok was banned in India, which was one of its biggest markets in the world, the “desis” shifted to Instagram reels, which have taken the Internet by storm. Whether it’s Yohani’s song, “Bachapan Ka Pyar” by Sahdev Dirdo or “Pawri Ho Rahi Hai” by Pakistani influencer Dananeer Mobeen, no one really knows what is cracking Gen Zs and becoming a viral trend.

Manike Mage Hithe‘was also picked up on reels in India and also rose to popularity on YouTube and Spotify. Listening has increased tenfold on Spotify and Yohani’s followers grew up by more than 80 times. She is the first Sri Lankan musician to have more than three million subscribers on YouTube. The song was on the YouTube charts for top music videos for 11 weeks.

However, not all viral trends translate into great success for an artist. We have seen a few examples in recent years of how it ended up crumbling – whether it was the fame of “Teri Meri Kahani”, Ranu Mondal or the Baba of “Baba Ka Dhaba”, not everyone gets not as successful and continues to dominate people’s hearts like Yashraj Mukhate did. After his’ Rasoda ‘meme video went viral in 2020, he came up with back-to-back viral tracks like’Kya Karun Main Itni Sundar Hoon‘and’ two pieces only ‘, etc. Yohani, however, continues to tour various cities in India for musical performances and we hope that she can build on her viral success and continue to produce hit numbers.

Views are personal.
