Summer Is On! F&H Style


Folded & Hung trailblazes with their 2012 summer campaign with Anne Curtis

And a fresh face:  GMA teen star Alden Richards. I noticed him before as this dimpled cutie on TV but I didn’t know he was kinda buff! LOL.

Their billboards are already up; Anne’s is on C5-Kalayaan and Alden’s on EDSA-Guadalupe so go check it out but please be careful on the road. 😉

Almost didnt’ recognize Anne with her urban chic inspired look and Alden does give off this twinkish vibe (he’s 19 – in short bantay bata level) especially with his smile so I actually prefer these shots of him looking serious.

Okay he’s hot admittedly, hence the post hehe. You know I’m a sucker for nice-looking adam’s apple and his is just perfect. Among his 3, i like the 2nd one best but I think the one you can see on the streets is the first. I can’t find the pic of Anne that’s on C5 either; she looked sizzling in her bikini.

And by the way, I want those board shorts! haha


Who’s Who of Music Battle It Out

The best of the chart toppers will be revealed on May 22 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas when Billboard hands out its Artist and Album awards for the year. You name it: Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Eminem, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Drake, Usher, Nicki Minaj will be there either as nominee or performer or both. Rihanna sweeps the nominations getting a record 18 nods out of 46 categories all in all. Eminem with 16 and Lady Gaga with 12. If you want the full list CLICK HERE. 

The first group of BBMA performers were also announced: Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez (yay!), Lady Antebellum, Taio Cruz and Keith Urban. I hope Britney and Lady Gaga gets added to this list. I have to admit when these big stars gather for an event like this you just gotta tune in whether to check out the winners, performances or even what they’re wearing on the red carpet. I don’t know if the show will air here though… tsk, I guess I have to check with my local cable listing. Who’s excited?

Britney’s #1 Again!

Femme Fatale debut at #1 at the Billboard Hot 200 this week! This marks her 6th album to debut at the top which is truly a remarkable feat. This gives her the 3rd spot for the most #1’s for a female artist behind only Madonna and Barbara Streisand and tie with Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson. Wow! That’s incredible… I mean it’s one thing for an artist to reach #1 but to actually debut at that spot 6 times is an achievement worthy of a true pop icon and of course, such dedicated fans. I’m bummed that the album doesn’t arrive here until the end of April but I’m happy with this news.

This album is her 7th studio release in which all, except for one, became no. 1. To my surprise, that one was Blackout which for me is one of her best so far (tie with Circus). Blame it on the VMA performance I guess and that underwhelming video. Moving on, Hold It Against Me was kind of like Womanizer in a way because I wasn’t sure how I felt about the song upon hearing for the first time but eventually, I couldn’t get it out of my head. With her 2nd video Till The World Ends already released and a much-talked about tour with Nicki Minaj, 2011 may be Britney’s best year yet. 🙂

Charice makes it to Billboard’s 21 Under 21 list

Not only did she make it, Charice is on the 4th spot only behind teen sensations Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber & Taylor Swift.

Billboard‘s annual list counts down artists under the age of 21 whom they think rules and will rule the music industry. Other notable inclusions are Korea’s Wonder Girls, Glee’s Chris Colfer, Camp Rock’s Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato & another Youtube sensation Greyson Chance. Disney teen queen Miley Cyrus is also in of course, although intiguingly low (she’s at #10), Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen also gets a spot by fronting her band The Pretty Reckless & Nickelodeon’s very own Miranda Cosgrove also made the cut.

I kind of agree to this list, well some of it. I still think JB should be number 1. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not a fanatic but you can’t deny he’s the biggest superstar out there aside from Lady Gaga. But other than that, everything’s cool. Way to go Charice! 🙂

Street Hazard? Nah!

This has been a topic of controversy in the local media with billboards towering everywhere near roadsides. There was Dingdong Dantes with the skimpy underwear from a couple of Bench campaigns and several F&H denim ads with the very Pinoy Joem Bascon (the one who resembles Piolo Pascual), another Brazilian-Japanese hottie Hideo Muraoka and the latest: Fil-Brit Justin Hills who also appeared with Anne Curtis on the TV ad for Greenwich. Now – and I must say I’ve been waiting for this LOL 😀 , the adorable and all-smiles Akihiro Sato baring his bod especially his abs for the newest Penshoppe campaign for jeans, Recut. Who cares if it jeopardizes every motorists passing by the Makati – Kalayaan Flyover? Just kidding. It certainly drawn my attention, the whole thing oozes sex appeal without it being too risky. I’m really fond of this guy, I don’t know why. Or maybe I do. 😉


On another note, still about Aki; I went gaga when I saw that picture and went searching for it on the Penshoppe site. And then, I stumbled upon the Club Pen Video Blogs with one featuring Aki entitled: Akihiro: Learning the Lingo and he was so cute trying to speak Tagalog, I just loved him much much more. Just head onto the site and video gallery. Have fun! 🙂
