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,
I hope you all have been enjoying the summer as much as I am (if you are in the Northern Hemisphere)! This week marked exactly 4 months I've been adventuring myself in the city of "Angels", Los Angeles. A lot has happened throughout this journey; I've had the pleasure to meet some amazing new creatives and humans; I've made new friends for life and I have been performing around and growing my fan base, it's been beautiful!
As I always say, good relationships are everything! =)
Speaking of relationships, two weeks ago, I was invited by my dear friends and music family, N'Dea Davenport and Katsuya Everywhere, both from Celectrixx, to guest perform with them in the super hyped Soho House New York.
Needless to say, I was extremely happy and flattered, so with not much hesitation I accepted the invitation and 3 days later I was flying to my "Spirit City", New York City!
Monday afternoon, I arrived in the chaotic, dirty and noisy Manhattan.
At first, I confess, I was so over the whole thing, I thought I wasn't gonna get into the groove anymore (coming from LA, imagine). Tho next morning I woke up with so much drive and passion, but above all, the hunger to make it big in life, a feeling I've got within since a young age, that every now and then, gets its flames almost off but suddenly wakes up again never letting it die.
Tuesday afternoon, after getting my NYC energy back, I got a call from the one and only, Susanne Bartsch, the Queen of Club Kids and NYC nightlife. Susanne invited me for a sudden guest performance at my favorite club in town, Le Bain at The Standard, High Line for her super successful party On Top!
The Performance was fantastic! I sang my first single #PopLife in my 70's leather disco ball suit! The crowd, including friends, guests, fans and club kids were so welcoming and excited, I had a blast! Check Below:
Continuing my one week NYC trip, I took the chance to see a few dear friends, have great dinners and even hang out at Central Park and watch Wood Allen's new movie before my highly anticipated performance at Soho House. =)
Friday, after finally meeting up with my pals N'Dea and Katsuya, we made it to Soho House for our 2 hour sound check and rehearsal. The ballroom was cool and the sound system pretty dope! The engineers and staff were very helpful and understanding of our needs. Later on, after a whole day of sweat, hard work and preparation, I had only one last thing before showtime: Choosing the perfect look!
The Show took place around 1am. Celectrixx killed it with their amazing set! As soon as they were done, I was finally introduced to the public by N'Dea to play my single #PopLife.
What an honor!
Post show, I got together with my good old friends who came to homage me and decided that drinks and some chatting in the rooftop would be just right!
NYC was amazing as always and I had a fantastic time while back there. I can now finally say, New York is really my city and I cannot wait to be back!
I would like to give a shoutout to my boys Rify Royalty and RESH for taking care of me while my stay! And to everyone else that made this one week trip so special and memorable, thank you so much! =)
I hope you enjoy the post!
Have a great week everyone!
Hello from California Dreaming Everyone! =)
I hope you are all doing good and having a great new week!
I arrived in LA one week ago and I've been enjoying it quite a bit.
The SUN is fantastic!
I have so much to do and accomplish while in LA, the city is growing on me and I have been meeting some great people so I should be posting some good news very soon!
For now, let me talk a little about my latest Fashion Film Music Video I shot in Tokyo a few days before coming to the U.S. It's for my newest single 'Thursday High'.:
*You can get it here:
I had been producing my new music video for about a month and a half.
Besides all the hard work that production is, all went pretty well expect for a little drama I had, the Director decided to drop the project 1 week prior to the shooting (YES, 1 week!).
Luckily, I have great friends and people who believe in my Vision and Art that I can always count on, so in the end, everything worked pretty well! =)
This time I've had the pleasure to work/collaborate with even more loved ones!
From models to dancers, hair & makeup professionals to stylist, artists to designers.
What a great team!
I'm not gonna give it all just yet, but I can tell you a bit about its concept.
First of all, I'm calling this a Fashion Film Music Video, so expect a lot of Fashion such as Anrealage, Mayuko Daimon and more.
I'm throwing some art statements, some very poppy elements and a lot of sexiness! =)
There is a little bit for everyone, I promise!
The story recreates in a metaphorical and artistic way, the night that inspired me to write 'Thursday High'. It also recreates in a surreal way, the dimension we go to when we get high on a Thursday night! =) It's filled with body and skin! =)
I really don't wanna talk too much about it so I will stop here. Below you can see some of the behind the scenes, and don't forget to check the mega team on board for this beautiful piece of art.
Enjoy everyone! =)
