Boa noite #PopLifes! Tudo bem?
Nessa sexta passada, 19 de outubro, lançamos o meu novo clipe de Free Now.
Este quarto single marca uma nova fase na minha carreira, agora com distribuição pela ONErpm.
Na festa de lançamento, recebemos amigos, imprensa e parceiros no meu apartamento que contou com DJ set de Paulo Watanabe, catering do SEU DOCE Atelier, meu show ao lado de Mia Bastos no teclado, Thais Avelino no carron e Kauê na Guitarra. A noite também teve Háquila Almeida, anfitriã e amiga maravilhosa que recebeu todos os convidados com grande elegância e simpatia. Gostaria de agradecer também à Lumi Renata pelas fotos incríveis (você pode conferir algumas abaixo) e Daniel Lima que foi responsável por filmar meu show que estará no meu youtube em breve.
Beijos em seus corações! Tenham uma ótima semana a todos!

Olá meus amados #PopLifes! Tudo bem? Pra quem não conseguiu me acompanhar no Instagram e no Facebook semana passada, aqui vai um update! O HIGHLIGHT da semana foi o início das inscrições do curso: As estrelas descem à terra, que fui convidado a fazer parte como um dos artistas para os quais os alunos selecionados criarão looks exclusivos!
A idéia é "Analisar as relações entre a Moda e a Música, ao longo dos séculos XX e XXI, a partir das perspectivas de formação das identidades, processos subjetivadores e comportamentais, são os objetivos do curso teórico e prático “As estrelas descem à terra”, que acontece nos meses de outubro a dezembro na Oficina Cultural Oswald de Andrade. Gratuito, os estudantes farão uma coleção com looks para shows dos artistas da nova cena musical brasileira" como diz Brunno Almeida, dramaturgo, escritor e filósofo.
Fora essa maravilha por sí só, ganhamos uma super matéria lá no FFW, confere!
Hello my beloved #PopLifes! What's up? For those who couldn't follow me on Instagram and Facebook last week, here's an update! The highlight of the week was the submissions opening for the course: The Stars Descend On Earth, which I was invited to be part of as one of the artists for which the selected students will create unique looks for!
The idea is to "analyze the relationships between fashion and music, throughout the XX and XXI centuries, from the perspectives for the formation of identities and behavioral processes, these are the goals of the theoretical and practical course "The Stars Descend On Earth", which happens in the months of October to December at the Oswald De Andrade Cultural Center. Free, students will make a collection with looks for the artists of the new Brazilian music scene", says Brunno Almeida, play-writer, writer and philosopher.
Out of that we got a super article on ffw, check!
Hello you all! How is it going?
In a week, it will mark 2 months in Brazil! It's been a great experience and journey so far, and I'm very excited for all the partnerships, projects and everything else coming my way.
Today I would like to share with you some fun times and exciting news.
2 weeks ago I had the pleasure to attend Tag Heuer Brazil's event, for the launch of their tech oriented new watches named #DontCrackUnderPressure, think Apple Watch feat. Tag Heuer. The event was held at Casa Fares, a huge, beautiful and modern space right in the heart of Jardim Paulistano. Brazilian Judo athlete and olympic medal winner, Flavio Canto was the special guest and played some games while the presentation was on.
After a few drinks and some great chatting with the beauties Maria Preu (C&A) and Priscila Borgonovi (PBPR), we went downstairs for some good dancing and more fun!
Millennium Dance Complex:
Millennium is the biggest Dance Complex from Los Angeles. Their clients include Starts such as J.Lo, Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez and more.
Since I arrived in Brazil I've been looking for choreographers, dancers and a studio to start practicing and creating the choreography for my first album (tone released ) #PopLife.
Guess what? I found Klaus Duarte, amazing choreographer and dancer who believed in my work and decided to have a meeting with me and his team. I finally met Paula Tomazella and Milo Levell head of the first Millennium Dance complex in Brasil. If you don't know, Milo was Michael Jackson's choreographer!
The big news is: They love and believe in my Music and Art, so we decided to seal a partnership where they will be creating the choreographies for #PopLife and in exchange I will be co-producing their amazingly talented artists! This is extremely exciting!
Check out my first workshop with the kids and my very first session today with Klaus, creating moves for my first single #PopLife!
Ausländer Halloween Party:
To complete an amazing post, I should finish it with an amazing party! =)
I was invited to attend Ausländer's Halloween Party held at an amazing location called Nos Trilhos, an old and industrial neighborhood of Sao Paulo, Mocca. They party itself was ok but the looks were absurd and I had the PLEASURE to wear Walério Araújo, an amazing Brazilian designer who is a sweetheart and extremely talented! Alongside me, Andre Florindo and Paola Ludtke in the gang who were also in Walério. I also matched my look with Chernobyl Show's custom headpiece I was gifted back in L.A. Check it out below!
Guys, I hope you enjoyed all the news and had fun it. I will keep on posting the good news! If you like it don't forget to engage a bit with me by liking, commenting and sharing it!

How you guys doing?
It's been about 5 weeks in Sao Paulo now and things keep getting better!
Besides some amazing new collaborators, partnerships and deals I can't quite tell yet, there are still some good news and fun events I would like to report and share with you.
The past two weeks have been like this:
The other night I had the pleasure to attend the launch party of Givenchy's new perfume 'Gentlemen Only Absolute', held at millionaire Cris Arcangeli's mansion in the most traditional neighborhood Jardim Paulista, Sao Paulo.
The party was pumping with good music by DJs, Cris Proença and Sarah Stenzel, amazing cocktails, a beautiful and well served buffet and of course, sexy Brazilian Celebs and Socialites, such as Wolf Maya, Stella Jacintho and Amir Slama.
A few nights after Givenchy's superb event, I went on to attend Brazilian blogger and Socialite Lelê Navarro's website renewal party at Tea Connection in Jardins, Sao Paulo.
The event was very intimate. Lelê talked about her career and her passion for Fashion, most specifically for Men's Fashion, which is usually rare for a Woman. Good one Navarro!
My dear friend and beauty guru, Andre Florindo was also there, giving a workshop about natural beauty and self confidence. To keep the party rolling, live music! =)

Welcome to Brazil! =)
Yes, that's right! Today it marks 1 month I've been in this beautiful and fun country.
I will be here for a few months working on some new projects and of course my MUSIC!
Here is what I have been up to in case you missed something.:
RG 15th Anniversary Party at Love Story:
RG is a super hyped Brazilian website/blog that talks about a wide range of topics, including Lifestyle, Culture, Fashion, Art and Music.
Check out the full story and all the photos HERE.
Marcelu Ferraz Men's Reception Party:
Marcelu Ferraz started with Women's wear a few years ago and is now expanding his talent into Men's wear. The pieces are sporty but in a very modern and colorful way. I met Marcelo himself at the release of his new collection and fell in love with so much talent and looks! =) Check out some photos and the party reports HERE.
Tô Ryca Pre Release Screening:
Tô Ryca is a Brazilian comedy movie that talks about Selminha played by actress Samantha Schmutz, a girl from the Favela who is not happy or comfortable with her destiny of being poor. She suddenly becomes rich but to stay so she has to go through a test of spending a huge amount of money everyday during a whole month.
I would really like all of you to find a way to find it with English subtitles. It's too much fun and really well produced! The pre release screening was held at Iguatemi Shopping last Tuesday, 13th. Check out all the celebs who attended HERE:
Guys, that's it for now. I hope I can keep sharing my Brazil with all of you.
I LOVE you all and thank you for the continuous support!
How are you? I hope you had a good weekend.
My week was pretty fun and busy, just how I like it!
Over last weekend through Monday, I was prepping for my amazing #PopLife shooting, which is basically some new photographs for my promotional material to be used by my booking agents and PR.
The actual shooting was on Tuesday, 9th, and I have to say, it was BEAUTIFUL!
My amazing friend Hank, Director and Editor of West Hollywood Magazine and WeHo Ville, hooked me up with one of his friends who owns a Mansion in the Hollywood Hills, the location couldn't have been more #PopLife!
After an amazing shooting day, nothing could possibly have beat it, expect a full amazing week of fun!:
Thursday night, my beautiful friend Jacky invited me to the Basic Magazine Red Carpet Event held at Confidential Beverly Hills. The party was very 90's Beverly Hills style (look it up) and I made some new dear friends including Justin Howard and Charmaine Joie.
Friday night my birthday friend (once again) Hank, invited me to the opening of 'Round Hole Square Peg', an Art Show curated by the fascinating Phil Tarley, a fellow of the American Film Institute and an artist member of the Los Angeles Art Association, whom writes about contemporary art, pop culture and photography for Fabrik Magazine.
Out of the photographers exhibiting, two caught my attention.:
Rob Lebow, who is actually a good friend of mine and shot me a few months ago in Palm Springs for his book 'GORGEROUS', featuring Armen Ra on the cover, and Josef Jasso, who I have never heard of before but definitely was winning the game, with some very colorful and bright pop art photographs featuring the one and only, Amanda Lepore.
Saturday night I attended another Art Show my dear friend Aaron Rosenberg was photographed for.
The full collection of underwater photographs entitled 'California Mermaids', features naked models and friends, shot by Ukrainian artist, Alex Sher. His impactful and stunning pieces are spread throughout the entire Lurie Gallery.
To finish the week with a Golden Key after so much work and fun events, at night (still on Saturday) I went for drinks and a lot of Disco Music accompanied by some new friends and my bestie Lily at my favorite club in town, Giorgio's, at The Standard Hotel, hosted by the sweetheart, Bryan Rabin.
I hope you guys enjoyed the highlights of my week! There is so much great content including Art, Fashion, Photography and Music to discover in this post, so I really hope you get inspired and have fun! =)
I LOVE YOU ALL,
Hello Everyone! How have you been?
It's been forever since I last posted. As you may know I've been in Los Angeles for almost 2 months now and sorting out life isn't easy in a foreign place.
It's been a great experience so far. It kinda takes me back to last year when I was living in NYC, recording and producing my album '#PopLife' (to be released). Everything was new and fresh, tho this time around I'm more familiar with it as it's still America.
My first 2 weeks was full on Angelino lifestyle: Hikes and runs at the Runyon Canon which is sadly closed now for maintenance; West Hollywood realness with all its beauty, healthy lifestyle vibes, sexiness and expensiveness (such as a $250 membership at Equinox); Hollywood glam nights at The Standard Hotel meeting David LaChapelle, Alan Cummings, Justin Tranter and more.
In less than 2 weeks I had already met some amazing new people for life and reconnected with some old friends, making me feel at home more and more.
One of the highlights so far has been our 24H Coachella experience. My dear friend Jacqueline Chambers invited me for a little private party hop around Palm Springs (where I wrote a new song!) filled with artists, celebs wannabes and actual celebs!
The drive was once again, full on (this time) Californian lifestyle: Convertible, loud music and sunshine!
From pool parties to an exclusive shooting with Rob Lebow of 'GLAMOROUS' book project to the grand finale, Jeremy Scott's annual bash!
Basically life in L.A. has been great! :) I just moved Downtown, my place is getting tidy and I'm keeping up the hustle, in search of the best Manager, the best Record Label and the best Team to help my dreams come true!
Thank you for the constant support, I LOVE YOU ALL! :)
How is it going? I hope you had a much better weekend than I did... =(
I've got the flu, more specifically the dangerous one, Influenza... I already went to the Doctor and I'm taking the right medicines, so I should be back on track early next week! =)
Anyways, besides the flu, I have a much better news!
Last Thursday Night I held a party in collaboration with my dearest DJ Fujiko, who is the one behind every Thursday nights at #DJBarBridge.
The was was to celebrate the release of my newest single 'Thursday High', which is part of my first album expected to drop sometime this year.
At the party I played a special DJ set to get the crowd warmed up, and then performed 4 songs including my first single #PopLife, which you should have listened to by now! =)
The event was a success, so many people I had no idea were actually my fans plus all my lovely friends that were as excited as I was to be there cheering up and having fun.
I would like to thank each one of you who came out last Thursday night and made me smile once again.
I love you all,
Today is such a special day for me! It's Sunday evening and I'm writing at home after 2 nights of LIVE SHOWS to support the release of my Single's Music Video #PopLife!
Here is a Teaser straight from my Facebook followed by the full video in the end of the post.
On Friday night, I performed for Bloc Japon's end of year party where I released the the Music Video to public. It was a very energetic night full of excited fans jumping and dancing around with me! =)
On Saturday night, I kept the rhythm on at Trump Room for Tokyo Scramble's party. It was quite a fun night specially when the fans started singing #PopLife's hook with me! Damn it, what a thrill!
Both Performances videos and photos will be up soon in a new post.

Hello everyone! I hope you've been having a great week so far. :) I would like to share with you the highlights of my last week. It was pretty great so check it out!
Between great meetings and good times, on Wednesday, my sweetheart Tabasa Tabuchi invited me to attend Kit and Ace's Supper Club Dinner, #RealTalk. The guest list was curated by Tabasa herself and gathered some pretty well known faces among the Fashion world.
The catering was absolutely delicious and nicely presented. Between each course we discussed questions given to each guest. The questions were complex and well elaborated, which made us for once, completely turn off our iPhones, and talk, eat, drink and laugh. To end the beautiful and pleasant evening... A Gateau Au Chocolat!
To keep up with Kit and Ace, on Friday, I got invited by my musician friend Tigarah, to attend CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers LIVE! And guess what?! ...VIP passes! Ha!
At the start, we were having fun and enjoying with the crowd, dancing and singing along to classics such as 'I Want Your Love' (my favorite!), 'Everybody Dance' and 'Lost in Music'.
After almost two hours of real good Music, the best was yet to come! We were invited onstage (actually onstage!) to wrap up the unbeliavlbe Show. Besides grooving with the Legend that has produced every Artist I look up to, and singing and harmonizing to 'Good Times' (as Nile played his guitar at me!), I finally took a break from the reality and dived into my own #PopLife, imagining, dreaming and visualizing that, the entire Show was all mine.
Check out below episode 5 of 'The #PopLife Show' dedicated only to this great Show! ;)
This was my amazing last week guys! I hope it inspires some of you to keep up with your dreams and goals! :)

Love to you all,
On Friday, September 18th, I had the pleasure to finally release my Debut Single #PopLife.
For this special event I partnered up with Bloc Japon and took the stage to celebrate the worldwide release of my Single and Bloc's 15th anniversary!
Official photos are up on Tokyo Dandy. You can also check more below.:
Mia Miu invited me to attend their Show and After Party in support of their new Flagship store in Tokyo, #MiuMiuAoyama. For this occasion, I got together with my hairdresser Yamamoto-san, Director of Bloc Japon and Japanese brand Anrealage. We came up with an awesome spicy look! Check the result below.:
