Pearls : Lana Del Rey

"Being Brave Means Knowing That When You Fail, You Don't Fail Forever."

Who is Lana Del Rey?
Elizabeth Woolridge Grant (born June 21, 1986), better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is an American singer-songwriter. Del Rey initially began performing in clubs in New York City at age 18 and signed her first recording contract when she was 20 years old with 5 Points Records, releasing her first digital album Lana Del Ray a.k.a. Lizzy Grant in January 2010. Del Rey bought herself out of the contract with 5 Points Records in April 2010 and signed a joint contract with Interscope, Polydor, and Stranger Records in October 2011. Releasing her debut single "Video Games" in June 2011, a music video created by Del Rey for the song was posted on YouTube in August 2011. After the song became a viral internet hit with over 20 million views, her second studio album, Born to Die, was released in January 2012. The album sold over 4.4 million copies worldwide in 2012, making it the fifth best-selling album of 2012. Charting across Europe, the album spawned numerous top ten hits, including "Blue Jeans", "National Anthem", "Born to Die", and "Summertime Sadness." With the release of her third EP, Paradise, Del Rey spawned her third top ten album in the United States, debuting at number 10 on the Billboard 200 with 67,000 copies sold in its first week. To date, her discography includes two full-length studio albums, three EPs, seven singles, and eight music videos. She has won the Q Award for "Best New Thing", a GQ Award for "Woman of the Year", a BRIT Award for "International Breakthrough Act" and another for "International Pop Female Solo Artist", and an EMA for "Best Alternative Act".

Del Rey's music has been noted for its cinematic sound and its references to various aspects of pop culture, particularly that of the 1950s and '60s Americana. The singer has described herself as a "self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra." Before signing to a major record label, Del Rey provided sole production of her music videos. Musically, she draws influence from what she deems to be the masters of each genre, including Elvis, Janis Joplin, Eminem, and Britney Spears, as well as from poetry and film noir. Del Rey has endorsed clothing line H&M, serving as the model for their Fall and Winter 2012 collection. In 2012, Del Rey became the face of the Jaguar F-Type luxury automobile. (Read More)

About Space Ibiza
Space Ibiza is a showroom that represents the best of the clubbing scene not only because of its awards but because of the support of artists and members of the industry. To organize an event at Space Ibiza is synonymous of success and an award desired by artists and promoters. Just a few clubs can be proud to have been awarded as many times in its trajectory as Space Ibiza. The club from Playa d’en Bossa is by its own merits and according to an exceptional collection of awards a worldwide clubbing reference.

“We’ve not been seeking for these awards but we are very thankful to have received them as they are recognition to our efforts and to a well done job”, says Pepe Rosselló, owner of the club.

Space Ibiza Review By Alexander A. : Millbrae, CA
I came here my 2nd night in Ibiza. I had just come from Ushuaia and was pretty much blacked out. Lol. But after running back to our condo to get ready for the 2nd time, we headed back to Space walking. After that cardio session my mind was coming back to its normal state and when we reached Space and went inside none of the other rooms were open.

My friend who went there before told me there were more rooms and probably were open on specific days/nights.

Long behold, went here a 2nd time for "We Love" and it was 1 of my most amazing nights. Met so many women in 1 session. I loved how they had various dj's in each room with different genres of house. And drinks galore. Only problem I had is some of the bartenders had attitude, but then again you can't blame them when they're dealing with drunk, belligerent customers at 5-7am!

This is a MUST go if you ever want to check out a good night, then go to "We Love."

Gear : Watches : i.amPULS by will.i.am

Gear : Watches : i.amPULS by will.i.am

Yes, musician and all-around famous dude will.i.am is indeed coming out with his own smartwatch, through his company i.am+. It’s called the i.amPULS, and will.i.am himself got up on stage to talk about it at Dreamforce 2014, Salesforce’s tech convention taking place in San Francisco this week.

i.amPULS is a standalone smartwatch, in the same vein as the Samsung Gear S. Among other things, that means it has 3G connectivity, so you’ll be able to use it to send and receive calls without a smartphone. To its credit, for better or worse, the i.amPULS seems to take things one step further—there’s been no mention of it being a companion to any smartphones at all. This really will be a completely standalone device.

In that light, the device is admittedly impressive. Despite being slim, i.amPULS has 1 GB of system memory, 16 GB of internal storage, a 780 mAh battery, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. It’ll also be a serviceable fitness tracker, thanks to a pedometer and an accelerometer.

On the software side, there will be built-in, dedicated, native apps for fitness tracking, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and music playback, along with basics like email, calling, texting, a calendar, and the like. It appears this is all proprietary stuff, including the digital assistant, called AneedA. AneedA was developed with Nuance Communications, and can schedule calendar appointments, play music, track fitness stats, post to social media, and make calls, among other things.

We’re not sure when i.amPULS will be available, but we know that AT&T will be the carrier. You can sign up to receive a notification when pre-orders start on the i.am+ website.

News : Chance The Rapper Catches Some Serious Blues

News : Chance The Rapper Catches Some Serious Blues

It can't be wonderful everyday, we suppose. Chance the Rapper has followed up the most optimistic song of his career with a song so unflichingly negative that it makes Chief Keef sound like Bob Ross by comparison. The verses on "No Better Blues" (as in "It don't get no better," ever) begin with "I hate my bed, I hate my home, I hate my job / I hate the wife, I hate the kids, I hate the dog," and just gets futher soked in haterade from there.

It's more resigned than angry, and it's so over-the-top and self-contradictory that no one could ever take it for being 100% serious, but it's still a prety heavy listen — albeit one with some very nice piano. Guess Chance really is one of those dudes where it just depends what side of the bed he gets up on. Listen below, but be warned.
