I’ve caught the Bieber Fever

I watched Justin Bieber’s 3D documentary/concert movie – Never Say Never – with my sister on the first day of Easter vacation over a week ago and I really liked it. I wasn’t the biggest fan before watching the movie, I just listened to Justin’s songs whenever my sister played the My Worlds 2.0 album and found the songs catchy, but I wasn’t a belieber – if you know what I mean. I respected his work and talent though and was excited to actually get to see how he got to kick off his career.
But the movie was so much more than I expected. It blew me away!
First I want to say the 3D effects were really impressive and suited this kind of movie perfectly, as it made it feel like you really was there at the concert with the other screaming fan girls xD (lol) Great ^^b (And the purple glasses also looks super cool ;D) The second thing I want to say is that I really was taken back how much this kid has fought for his dream – I didn’t know he started to play instruments when he was only two years old or that he did all the promotion himself to get the radio stations to play his songs, because he was too young in their eyes (wow!) and I didn’t know he was raised by divorced parents and a teenage mom :O That was actually the most unexpected (haha) ^o^ It’s just amazing to see how much Justin loves music and how much he appreciate everything: people’s support, his fans, his family, the people who helped him get signed and get him a recording contract (Usher, Scooter Braun and many others) and the ability to do what he loves the most – perform music.
I was surprised to see how much he (over)works too! 89 concerts in a row – that’s just crazy! (I think some time ago Berryz Koubou celebrated their 100th concert performance, and they have been a group for 7 years now. Justin Bieber performed 89 concerts over a single year, alone O_O). The poor kid also lost his voice at some point in the movie and wasn’t allowed to talk for two days! :O It touched my heart to discover how much it bothered Justin to cancel a concert because of his voice problem, he really doesn’t want to disappoint his fans. Ever! (As he wrote to his fans on his Twitter).  It’s nice to find an artist who cares so much for his fans, makes me want to support him ^^
I have really changed my opinion of him. Before I just liked his music – now I like him as a person as well. I feel stupid for not realizing this before now. I’m so slow ^^; (haha) I’m also sad I didn’t get to see him perform when he held a concert here in Denmark on April the 1st :( I know the tickets were sold out anyway, but still ;_; (sigh) Too bad. Now I’m just really excited for his next move. I know his voice is changing rapidly and his new songs probably will be very different from his previous (cute) pop songs. But I’m sure he will pull it off great as always. (Seriously, I haven’t been disappointed with any song he has released yet!)
I really don’t understand why this boy has so many haters. I guess they don’t like him because he’s so popular. It’s the same thing that happened when Twilight got huge. When something get that popular, some people just want to dislike it just because they don’t like the fan-hype. Really stupid actually. I mean there’s a reason for those things get that popular right? Well, I just think Justin Bieber deserves the attention as he is amazingly talented (he really is) and got to be known because of this talent, not a name or an acting career etc.
The last thing I want to say is: I love Justin’s humor. Listened to his new song Dr. Bieber yesterday and find the lyrics hilarious: “Yeah you females know of me – Time to realize I’m a beast” He’s a beast spreading the “disease” xD  “Catch that virus in the night – I know it’s uncurable, it’s durable, but it’s alright” When you get the fever it’s not going away! But “You’ll never regret this“. This song totally makes fun of the Bieber Fever phenomenon and the lyrics are so true in a way it just makes the song even more hilarious xD Would love to see a music video for this, maybe like the video Snoop Dog did for fun with his song Oh! Sookie :P Doesn’t need to be a “official” video, just one for fun ^^ Would be really funny to watch! But anyway – I look forward to see more of Bieber this year :D

Momoiro Christmas

I just received this concert DVD with Momoiro Clover the other day and watched it with my sister. It was a really nice concert, the girls really gave it their best and you could see how much this honor meant to them. So cute ❤

The DVD itself is very neat :3 I love the cover art and it has two discs: one with the concert footage and one with making of footage :O The making of included photoshoots and the girls goofing around on the set, as well as backstage footage of the concert (before and after, as well as under the concert) and interviews with the girls after the concert too :D Really nice! And if those things weren’t enough, they also included a 20-page booklet with pictures from the concert ^o^ wow right? Hello! Project should learn from the guys who made this DVD xD lol

I think they got around to perform all their songs – plus some extra (cover) songs I hadn’t heard before. Shiori and Akari both got to perform solo, while the others will have to wait for next time :) I liked that it was those two members who got to perform solo though, as you don’t hear Akari very much in their group songs (except for the rapping parts maybe) and I just like Shiori very much (she’s my second most favorite member – next to Kanako) so of course I was happy xD Next time I hope to see Kanako or Momoka get a solo performance though ^^ Would be awesome!
Or maybe a Kanako x Shiori duet ❤ ❤❤ *O*

Here’s the setlist:
1 Hashire
2 Believe
3 Pinky Jones
MC①
4 words of the mind
5 Rough Style
6 Kimi Yuki

7 Zenryoku Shoujo
8 Momoiro Punch

Some of my favorite performances were Kimi Yuki, Zenryoku Shoujo, Akari’s solo – Fall into me, Shiori’s solo – Ai desu ka?, Coco Natsu, Ikuze Kaitou Shoujo and Tsuyoku Tsuyoku~ ❤ The entrance they did to Zenryoku Shoujo was amazing! I loved the outfits and the cool sunglasses xD Haha

The girls sang with playback, but they were singing over the playback as well – if that makes any sense? I wish they would just let them sing without the playback (as I think all the girls are really talented singers) but I guess they had to make the performances *perfect* because they only got to perform this concert one time (on Christmas Eve) as well as film it for the DVD… :/ Too bad. I hope they will sing without playback next time ^^

But otherwise a really great concert – worth your money!

By the way – I really really look forward to Momoclo’s first album releasing July 27th :O I hope there will be some duets or solos on the album xD

A very special boy’s birthday

Today is Haley Joel Osment’s birthday! This wonderful boy actor known for his childhood performances in movies like The Sixth Sense, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Pay It Forward and Secondhand Lions turns 23 today :D

Lately I have found myself quite obsessed with this actor, as I find him insanely cute (I have a weakness for cute boys >#<), talented and charming ♥ Not to mention I love his adorable voice xD
So far I’ve watched him in A.I., The Sixth Sense, Pay It Forward, Edges of the Lord and Forrest Gump – he’s an amazing actor. He really makes you forget how young he was in those movies, because of his professionalism and extraordinary talent. You can really feel he takes acting serious and he always chooses his roles with care. He wants to choose roles that can take him further as an actor :) I find that really cool! He seems like a very sensible person, which it’s quite rare with child actors O_O

Soon I would like to watch his movies: Secondhand Lions, Bogus and I’ll Remember April, which I haven’t watched yet. I would also like to watch him in some of his newer movies like Home of the Giants or Truth and Treason. I really hope for Haley that he keep continuing his acting career and that he will appear in bigger movies again soon~ ;)
