Which Celebrities Have Had Rhinoplasty

How can you tell which celebrities have had a nose job? That’s a tricky question since most Hollywood stars would have you believe that their beauty is totally natural. With relatively minor procedures (such as eyelid surgery to correct drooping lids) the results of plastic surgery may be difficult to spot. However, rhinoplasty doesn’t make a person look younger. It actually changes the entire look of the face. So if you see photos of celebs who look dramatically different than they did a few months ago, it’s time to zero in on the nose for closer inspection. Here are several well-known women who have definitely gone under the knife to acquire a new schnoz.

Jennifer Grey
Best known as Ferris Bueller’s older sister and “Baby” from “Dirty Dancing,” Jennifer Grey’s quirky-but-cute face captured the camera and the hearts of American moviegoers. Now, she is most famous for having a great nose job and a career that took a nose dive as a result. Her beak was shaved down to a shadow of its former self. Now, you wouldn’t recognize her on the s treet (or on “Dancing with the Stars”). Grey has reportedly gone on to take advantage of cosmetic surgery several more times in the last few decades. At least one face lift and some injectable fillers may have kept her looking fairly young-if not exactly “baby” faced.

Ashlee Simpson
This young singer was apparently under very deep anesthesia during the procedure to alter the shape of her nose. Her reported response to questions about whether she had a nose job was “Maybe, who knows!” Her plastic surgeon knows for sure. So does her dad, who probably footed the bill for the operation. Unlike Barbra Streisand, who has famously declined to have the bump on her nose removed because it might change the timbre of her lovely voice, Simpson appears to harbor no such fears. As long as she keeps her lip-syncing skills polished, she should be fine.

Lil Kim
Although Lil Kim (Kimberly Jones) has done her best to draw attention away from her nose job with much more extreme enhancements to her bosom, her nose has the pinched look reminiscent of Janet and Latoya Jackson’s. Let’s hope she stops now and doesn’t descend fully into Michael Jackson territory. The Queen Bee’s forehead is also looking suspiciously shiny and smooth these days-an indication of Botox injections. At least the results of that particular treatment wear off over time. It’s not too late to get off the plastic surgery train to disaster, Kim, can you hear me now?

Does The X Factor And American Idol Produce Great Singers

I am based in the UK and we get the X factor, which is the same as American Idol except for the age limit. With the X Factor, there is no age limit. In the UK, we also get to watch American Idol on ITV2. The best part of these programs has got to be the auditions. Here you will find some of the finest comedy ever seen on television, but does it produce the finest singers. In my opinion defiantly not.

Yes, there are some good singers, but no better than I have seen in clubland over the past thirty years. As a keyboard player I have worked with thousands of singers some totally rubbish some are ok, you know, a nice singer. Then you have the good singers, well rehearsed, and well dressed a bit of polish to the act. Then you have the WOW what a singer. I can count them on one hand in over thirty years of working in clubland.

Now this is just my humble opinion of course. I am not a singer; Ive just worked with lots of them. Granted I work in back street clubs and pubs and American Idol has the best equipment, musicians, producers, promotion and the whole world to sell it to, but a singer is a singer right. The only difference is the environment one is a pie and a pint the other is caviar and champagne.

So maybe the title of this blog should read, Does the X Factor and American Idol Produce Great Television? absolutely, one hundred percent YES. Now be honest, how many of you are not that bothered about watching or dont bother to record the show once the auditions are over. All right some of you, but thats only because Simon Cowell is dishing the dirt.

I know some of the singers that applied for the X factor and they didnt even reach the auditions stage. Not because they are bad singers, if they were bad they would probably reach the auditions. The reason is, they are not good enough to make it all the way and they are not bad enough or funny enough to make good television.

I certainly wish all the singers that have won these competitions the very best. Will they be top selling artist? I havent seen much evidence of that in the UK. I must conclude that the X factor and American Idol create great television and make millions of pounds/dollars and give an extraordinary opportunity for a few not great, but good singers.

The Peoples Instrument

The abovementioned quotation was from the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia. It is by far the most appropriate description given to everyones favorite musical instrument the guitar.

Guitars are arguably the most popular and widely used among the musical instruments. It is the major instrument used in most contemporary music genres such as blues, country, rock and other forms of pop. Guitars are also played as solo classical which is usually done acoustically. Acoustic guitars rely on the vibrations the string produced and the hollow body that modulates the sound. Contemporary musicians, on the other hand, use mostly electric guitars that amplify and manipulate the sound produced by the strings using electricity and other gadgets.

The history and evolution of guitars is still a mystery to most musicians. Up to now, no one knows where guitars originated. Others think that the ancient Greeks are the ones who first use the instrument. Some others would say that it cam from North Africa, the Middle East or India. Guitars seem to be widely used everywhere most probably for that reason.

As strange as its origin, classic guitars are mysterious and solitary. Obviously, only one person is needed to make music with a guitar but as Segovia mentioned, the strings vibrating together seems to produce varying emotions to the audiences ears. This is specially the case with classic guitars which are usually played in solo concertos and rarely as an accompaniment.

Blues guitars are the complete opposite of the more demure classic guitars. Although blues started as more of a vocal exhibition while guitars were only used as rhythmic and harmonic accompaniment, there is no denying that blues has evolved to what it is now because of the guitar. The rhythm produced by the guitars best emphasize the lyrics of blues songs. And because blues musicians are usually self-taught, the guitar evolved as a very flexible instrument which musicians enjoyed to take advantage by exerting their own version of guitar playing that reflects their personalities. Using the guitar, blues musicians were able to develop its style making it hard to categorize it to a single genre.

Also very influential in todays music scene are electric guitars which are now considered as an artifact of popular culture. Electric guitars are predominantly used in rock, pop and jazz. May it be a Strat or Les Paul, electric guitars define our generation with its postmodern definition of music as an art form.

Vocalists working with poor methods – What is happening in the market

Many people today tend to be tuning into singing competitions to look at different performers swagger his or her goods. Nevertheless in many conversations I’ve had with various people today, most recognize that almost all the vocalists who audition for the television shows don’t have the first concept on how to use his or her singing voice correctly. They may have never taken singing coaching and quite a few really don’t even have a voice to begin with.

When comparing the various competitive events, it seems most of them fall flat apart from perhaps one or two entrants which have actual talent. And maybe this is the purpose of these programs. We simply cannot all be wonderful performers. Common sense will advise you those individuals who genuinely possess a gift involving singing tend to be unusual indeed.

Afraid to sing

I’d personally estimate that people are just as kept amused by the folks that lack vocalizing talent as they are those who possess this. Any time you watch American Idol, for example, the earliest try out programs are definitely the most fun on account of all of the wackos which believe they’re the future Rhianna or perhaps Michael Buble. And I should express there are times which I’ve never laughed harder in my life. And honestly, there are some which use these shows as a podium regarding their Fifteen minutes of fame.

And then I take a moment and also take into account the real people in the contests which have properly trained their own singing voices and undergone voice classes and music education to elevate their own natural talent. I oftentimes wonder if they may not be frustrated with the large numbers of individuals who misuse the judge’s time.

But cream will climb to the top. Talent can not be concealed for too long. And it would seem every year we uncover 1-2 diamonds in the rough who need to be in the spot light. I simply want that a lot more men and women would work hard at it. And I hope that individuals with some raw expertise would receive the proper music coaching in voice courses expected to go on to a higher level.

Ancient Tv Plays Pk Modern Instruments

I don’t how you would think of them after seen these astonishing modern instruments. I thought it’s kind of interesting, and I haven’t watched so far. As a hot costume piece recent present, it enjoys a high popularity. Actually I don’t know since when the costume piece has a trend of being modernized.

Though some special effects are about to attract audience eyes, they also result to the in authenticity. However, the modern instruments in have reached a brand new level.

I have to say, these emends are bull shits. I didn’t like them at all. The most interesting part that attract me is the different period, which I can see something different of the real life. But in that movie I also see so many thing that I don’t want to see. I’m really lost confidence to the director who shit this beautiful story.

At all time, any program has the certain and specific group of audience. Who are the audiences of , and who feel exciting and satisfied with some TV programs, for example , JinYong series of CCTV? maybe just the youngsters. They are a group who lack the judgment of something, and they are easily affected by the fashion that it is not sure good. From the internet, I get information that a youngster think Zhou JieLun is far greater than Jackson. I feel it’s so ridiculous, and deeply worry about the judgments of some people. Sometimes, the mind of young people is just like a white paper, but its often written very strange.

In my opinion, whether to use the modern equipment is not important. We should focus our attention on whether the play is interesting or splendid. Why we watch the costume piece? We are looking for fun, not for the authenticity. The modern equipment can make the screen more interesting and funny. So I just support these costume pieces.

As for Jay Chou you mentioned, and I guess the Jackson refers to Michael Jackson. For my part, I utterly cant accept the comment that Jay Chou is greater than MJ. For one reason, MJ is one of my most respectful performers and also one of the greatest performers admitted by public. As a matter of fact, I don’t like Chous voice, appearance and character, but his music makes me feel different. It’s just far more different than pop music. So I don’t exclude his music, and when I listened and listened, gradually get used to his music. It’s not that bad.

Are celebrities using children’s books to stay in favour with public

The latest in a long string of celebrities to write children’s books when the going gets tough, Barack Obama has joined the ranks of children’s authors with his book, Of thee I sing.

Bookstores across the world are filled with celebrity offerings and Obama is not the first celebrity to turn to writing children’s books when they have been perceived less than favourably in the press. Though admittedly, he is the first president to aim his work at children. n.

Well-known names such as Madonna (who released her first of six children’s books, The English Roses, back in 2003) and Sarah Ferguson (who has released a string of books throughout her many periods of disgrace) have jumped on the bandwagon.

It is thought that these celebrities (including former First-Lady, Hilary Clinton) believe that by showing their softer, compassionate side, will regain the public’s trust and respect after falling from grace. Take Jordan, a.k.a Katie Price, for example – after a string of allegations and accusations in the press, Jordan released her sparkly pink offering, My Pony Care book.

Obama has provided himself some saving grace, in the form of all his proceeds going to charity. All money gained from sales of the publication will benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity dedicated to the children of soldiers wounded or killed in battle, and Obama is not giving any interviews in relation to the release.

Other cynics have also attributed the celebrities’ enthusiasm to the success achieved by the phenomenally popular Harry Potter books, which made JK Rowling both a celebrity and a millionaire.

Despite the fact that many cynics see celebrities’ writing ambitions as a money-making enterprise, it can be argued that it doesn’t matter who’s written the books; if children are more inclined to sit down and read just because their favourite celebrity is attached to the novel, where is the harm?

By reading more, children widen their vocabulary and advance their development. This outcome is positive even if the books themselves may ultimately be a cynical attempt at making cash and creating publicity.

Elements Of Concert Stage Lighting

When asked to share your all-time favorite concert experience, you likely recall details such as stellar musical performance, great special effects, and a memorable venue. What you may not remember, however, is how fantastic lighting contributed to your concert experience. Though often overlooked, lighting is the single most important element in setting a concerts overall mood and tone. A great lighting designer knows how to evoke an audiences emotions and can change the tone of the concert several times throughout the show. Here are 3 ways concert lighting designers use lights to create unforgettable concerts.

Direction and Placement
Proper direction and placement of stage lights helps to direct or detract audience attention from specific stage elements. In concerts, lights are used from varying angles to hide or reveal people or objects on stage. Lighting angles come into play when creating specific effects for example, lighting that comes from behind the stage, can create beautiful shadow and silhouette effects on stage. Side lighting, however, highlights a performers shape and brings details like an instruments silhouette or a performers costume to attention. Finally, lighting a stage from various angles can create illusions of dimension. With clever lighting, dramatic shallowness or depth can be created on stage.

Color
Color is another important element of stage lighting. Overall mood and ambiance can be greatly influenced by colored lighting. Different shades and intensities can create specific effects. Red for example, conveys passion and intensity. Blue makes people feel serene and calm, yellow brings to mind positivity, and green conveys a sense of strangeness or trouble. Color can also help to establish a sense of time. Dark shades remind audiences of night, while bright yellow or orange tones bring daylight to mind.

Plot
Much like a stage play, concerts rely on lighting to tell a story. Next to music and stage design, lighting is one of the most important elements in concert design. While stage design, choreography and costumes are important visual elements that help create a plot, music and lighting add emotion and intensity. Well-executed concert lighting can effect audiences emotions and shift overall tone multiple times throughout the show. It can also be used to guide a story line, highlighting important characters and triggering action onstage.

Lighting design is essential to creating a great concert experience. Many light designers collaborate with live concert video producers to create amazing live experiences. An example of a concert video production company is Daddy Van Productions, which helps create concert memories that will last a lifetime.
