BTOB: "We Didn't Want to Debut as Idols"

After 4Minute and B2st's success, the market once manipulated by SM JYP and YG, the Big 3, was shaken up, leaving Cube Entertainment's rookie group, BToB incredible interest.Here in BToB,these kids didn't have the basis of (what is needed for) creating idol teams, and were still uncertain but the possibility of their growth makes us anticipate them even more. Honestly, BToB was originally planned as a dance group,it's no wonder that these members have different dreams from the others as "idol stars".

French/Colombian rapper who plagiarized TOP accuses VIPs of being hateful and racist

Alabama, the French/Colombian rapper who plagiarized TOP's turn it up finally changed the title of his youtube clip as a "Remix" and updated the description. 

Collapse )

tl, dr version: I didn't say it was a tribute or cover because the entire world knows who TOP is and everyone knows this song. TOP would agree with me. VIPs are hateful and racist.

My reaction:
lame excuse is lame, even some seasoned Omonians didn't know the song. It's not like TOP is some international megastar.
lol @ his clip going from a few hundred views to 134,000 in a few days, the power of angry VIPs XD

TOP was unavailable for comment.

S. Korea Christians protest over Lady Gaga concert

Scores of conservative South Korean Christians will pray together on Sunday against Lady Gaga's Seoul concert, organisers said, accusing the US pop star of advocating homosexuality and pornography.

The pop diva arrived in South Korea on Friday, a week before her Seoul performance which kicks off her "Born This Way Ball Global Tour."

About 300 Protestant church members will gather in downtown Seoul Sunday night to hold a group prayer against the concert in the capital, Kang Ju-Hyun, a prayer organiser told AFP.

"We will pray to God that the concert will not be realised so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country," he said.

What adults have to say about teens and their idols

Dam Thi Xuan Uyen
Young people these days are more fanatic than us

In the old days, I followed some friends and idolized some artists. I would collect their photos and articles about them. I would sing along to their songs. But that was all I could do for my idols. I did not receive much pocket money from my parents and could not go to school with an empty stomach. I felt it was not wrong for my friends to idolize some celebrities, for they dressed nicely, sang well and earned billions due to their gifted voices. Besides their endowed talent, they also spent a lot of time on vocal and dance training.
