Dealing With Pandemic Using Humour 

The new release "Fuck You COVID-19" by “Cool Ass” not only sticks it to the coronavirus, but is also set to cheer up the world during this pandemic. It's mission is to show that despite all the social distancing measures, we can still find a way to come together and have fun. For the music video, fans from around the world unite with footage of them rocking out to the song, which is sure to bring a smile to your face. The video is available on YouTube and will also be aired on MTV. 

 

Critics Love It 

"Fuck You COVID-19" was released on June 19, 2020 to critical acclaim. Up Up Music describes it as "the Covid-19 anthem that we didn’t even know we were waiting for", and Stepkid.com writes "this artist really has a lot of talent" and "seriously, this song is damn good.”

 

Cool Ass Music 

“Cool Ass” was created by Marc Marut, with a sound that's reminiscent of 90's alternative. Combining a hard hitting, toe tapping, energetic rock style with other influences, “Cool Ass” music gets people moving as much as the lyrics get them laughing. Not only is Marc a musician/songwriter, he is also an accomplished actor. He has starred in feature films such as "The Paperboy (1994)", as well as many TV shows such as "Goosebumps" and "Road To Avonlea". Marc does all the composing, recording, and audio engineering himself. 

 

Today we are excited to have the founder of “Cool Ass” Marc Marut for all the tea about their recent release. 

 

CL: How did you start your music career?

MM: When I was nine I was lucky enough to break into acting by doing musical theatre, so I got to hang out with members of the orchestra and I really learned a lot from them. They'd help me do things like transpose sheet music into different keys for auditions, or the conductor would guide me in terms of my vocal performances... they were professionals, and as a kid I was blown away at their talent! As I got older, I spent lots of time in studios laying down vocals for commercials and TV shows. I also started taking piano lessons, but quickly got discouraged with my music teacher because she wouldn't let me add any style. So that inspired me to get into playing guitar, and of course I was in a band in highschool. 

 

CL: What inspired you to launch “Cool Ass”?
MM:
A few years ago a song popped into my head that was so catchy, it got stuck there for months until I just couldn't ignore it any longer... and since I could already play some instruments, I set about recording it and learned how to do all the audio production myself. I was so pleased with the final result that I decided to share it with the world, and so Cool Ass was born. 

 

CL: Tell us about your recent release "Fuck You COVID-19"? 

MM: Like all my music, it just popped into my head one day. I was actually getting ready to record some other songs at the time, when suddenly out of nowhere we got hit by this virus and everything changed. This "new normal" took a lot of adjustment for me, and when I finally adapted to it, this new song was stuck in my head... it was such a catchy tune and was so relevant to how people were feeling, I had to put all my other plans on hold and record this one instead.  

 

CL: What kind of response you have received from the release? 

MM: The response has been amazing! The song's fun and has been getting great reviews, and everybody tells me they really like it. For the music video, I wanted to show that despite all the social distancing measures, we could still come together and have fun. I asked fans from around the world to send in footage of themselves rocking out to the song, and then I edited it all together. I'm so impressed with what a great job everybody did! People say they can relate to the song and that the video makes them smile. I'm grateful I can bring some joy to people in these difficult times.

Nadine Arakelian is a cover girl of "Cosmo Chic" August issue!

Nadine Arakelian is a cover girl of "Cosmo Chic" August issue. She shares Empathy Aesthetics through #LoveXXL360 Campaign. 

In a world that continues to feel disconnected from one another, one artist continues to make strides toward adapting and changing this scene. From developing an AR performance through Instagram and making art accessible to all, to donating masks and contributing to support essential workers, and to  creating a new cultural manifestation through art, Narine Arakelian does it all.  

Narine Arakelian (born May 13, 1979, based in Venice, Italy and Los Angeles, USA) is an emerging contemporary artist who creates performance art, installation, painting, sculpture, video and environmental art. Arakelian’s work with technology, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and social media, connects virtuality with the grounded materialism and traditions of painting. Arakelian uses translation and a form of cultural overdubbing to affect a space of empathetic encounter. The artist’s exploration of feminism, identity and representation are filtered through interpersonal experience and empathetic response. Narine Arakelian is associated with Empathy Aesthetics, integral to the Altermodern in the post-pandemic era.

Since the start of coronavirus, sending everyone home has led to a new level of creativity for many - Narine takes it up a notch, combining art with philanthropy. The #LoveXXL360 campaign introduces the Love and Hope mask and the Paradise collection as this new form of work which, according to Richard Wearn, Professor of Art at California State University, Los Angeles, can be understood as “Empathy Aesthetics.” 

This Instagram filter features a medical-style face mask with the words Love and Hope flashing across it. When the user opens and closes their eyes, stars are released across the screen, and when the user taps their forehead, a halo appears. If the sound is turned on, a voiceover from the artist herself will repeat the comforting words of Love and Hope. This filter aims to bring joy and comfort to those who use it during this pandemic, through an enduring message of hope. It succeeds - Arakelian’s soft tones gently reassure the user.

According to Wearn, “Narine’s work may be understood and defined in terms of Empathy Aesthetics, as she is utilizing the various social media platforms that arguably result in alienation as a means to promote empathy. She is a virus in the system attempting to reverse an outcome. Her work also speaks to the way we use attributes as a sign of reference when it is not. Think of the function of an app on a touch screen. Tinder = intimacy/sex, Google = knowledge; any object notion has been removed. We are left with attribute recognition through an app. We request and something turns up. The dynamic in recent work by Narine may be defined in a similar way. The artist is negotiating through text and imagery a new sensibility and message to humanity that is not transactional. Narine gifts through social media which works against transactions, which is built into the model of digital life.”

Through these filters, celebrities including AnnaLynne Mccord (90210), Kristin Bauer (True Blood, Once Upon a Time), Sofia Milos (CSI Miami), Briana Evigan (Step Up 2, 4, 5), Ellie Mumin and Tiffany Brouwer (Vanderpump Rules), Markus Molinari (Socialite), Courtenay Semel (Keeping Up with the Kardashians), Ruth Connell (Supernatural), and influencer Shannon K have posted the mask filter with the intention of raising awareness for the campaign, and as part of Arakelian’s push to donating more masks and PPE to health care workers.

Her efforts have shone in the success and popularity that this campaign has reached! Since the start of the campaign, she has donated more masks than anticipated. She has become the modern day changemaker and artist capable of adapting and shining in any form of art. Using social media to stand in solidarity, and creating a new social movement to bring people together in a time of distress. The AR filters use a dynamic QR code that can be found on Instagram under “#LoveXXL360” or on her Instagram @narinearakelianofficial or visit web narinearakelian.com

Heather Fay on the cover of "Lounge Club" July!

Heather Fay is the next big star - the  status she confirmed in her latest project “Sensual”. The new project will soon be rocking the charts, and everyone is invited! “Sensual” is about Heather Fay in her hottest version, and those who loved her in “The One” will love her even more.

The wait is finally over for all of Fay's fans, as her new project is out this month! The tracks can be previewed, downloaded and purchased from all major streaming music platforms.

With “Sensual” there is no denying that Heather has got her fans swooning to her music as much as her figure. In her previous act, Heather Fay shot to fame with “The One” which ranked #1 on the Euro Indie Charts and landed #7 on the annual chart. The R&B chartbuster maintained 7th place as we rolled into 2020.

Fay thanks her fans and her co-stars for bringing her this far. Her debut single saw her getting paired with Grammy-award winning writers and producers, Tony Haynes and the late Lloyd Tolbert, and since then she has been the artist to watch out for. The day is not far when Fay will rank alongside the big names.  

“Sensual” is made even more special - it is all written and produced by Heather Fay herself. Her four-octave vocal will be on full display, and her amazing screen presence that wowed the viewers in her last music video “The One” (here is the youtube link: http://youtu.be/RGHRwsT0p8I )

Fay’s influences include Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, and Alicia Keys to name a few.  Her songs carry the same energy and verve, as she has learned to harness her energies to deliver a powerful performance, without sacrificing the soft and the tender.

Starting her career as a model in Kansas City, Missouri, Fay ventured into her lifelong love of music moving to Los Angeles. Her first indie single “Killin’ Me” got her fan base, and she began getting show offers, including opening for YMCMB’s Chanel West Coast. Her second single, “Let’s Get Close” got her the attention of Paul Ring, CEO and President of Bungalo Records. The subsequent release of “The One” transformed Fay into a mainstream, in-demand performer. With “Sensual”, fay is now gunning for the top honours in the music industry.

Exclusive interview with model, actress and cosplayer Reshá

Today we have in our studio Reshá, for an exclusive interview. We are so excited!

CP: Hi, how are you today!
A: I’m great, happy to be here!

CP: What is your inspiration for the day?
A: Gratitude, I’m just grateful for everything in my life right now and it reminds me to keep going every day so that I can inspire others!

CP: You’re a model and you have fantastic pictures! What was your craziest experience on the photoshoot?
A: The craziest thing I’ve done so far is climbing the side of a mountain for waterfall photos that I never even got!

CP: What is the most memorable picture that was taken of you?
A: I enjoy cosplay modeling the most and my favorite shoot was when I took photos of my Starfire costume. I got a lot of support from one of the photos going viral in a meme.

CP: Tell us about your acting experience. How did you come to act? Was it an easy thing for you?A: I got into acting by accident, I was told I would never make it as a model so my agency started sending me to acting auditions. I did a few small gigs in middle school and later did theatre in high school but I was never trained professionally, I just imitate what I see.

CP: What is the most touching story that you've had in acting?
A: When I was a kid I made friends on set very easily and the other kids were excited to meet young actors like them so that would be my best memory is just being on set with my friends talking about how much we hate algebra together haha.

CP: We know that one of our hobbies is cosplay. How did you get into that?
A: Video games and anime are what inspired me to start making costumes. I started getting serious about it when I was around ten years old and I started hand sewing bigger projects. I couldn’t afford much so I used to use thrifted clothes or old sheets and just try to paint or dye it to look like the costume, it was terrible.

CP: Do you go to some events or cosplay festivals? Which?
A: I used to go to conventions all over the world before covid hit, but I hope that I can go to Twitchcon this year. I’m a huge fan of the larger anime and comic cons so I might not be able to attend any for a bit haha.

CP: What is your biggest dream?
A: My dream is to gain more experience in the acting world and one day be on a show. I’ve always wanted to be on TV and I’m hoping one day I’ll get to live my dream.

CP: If you can have an opportunity to act with any person dead or alive, who would it be?
A: I would love to work with Halle Berry or Nina Dobrev, I look up to both of these women for their strength, beauty, and talent. It would be amazing to learn from either of them.

CP: Thank you so much for the inspiration!
