Ashlee Keating Drops Bad Mistake

Pop singer Ashlee Keating drops new single “Bad Mistake.” The single is Ashlee’s follow up to her chart-topping dance record “Hurt Me So Good”, which peeked at #8 on the Billboard Dance Club Charts. “Bad Mistake” is an empowering up-tempo pop song with an urban melodic vibe that shows off Ashlee’s powerhouse vocals; It’s full of attitude, strength, and swag.

“Bad Mistake is me at my most authentic & vulnerable. The lyrics I wrote were inspired by a real relationship in my life turned bad, but then taking the positive, I became better and stronger from it by not letting a relationship ruin me. Eventually, the other person realized what they lost, now I’m his “Bad Mistake”, stated Ashlee.

Gryffin’s recent triumphs include “Tie Me Down” ft. Elley Duhé (an August release that hit #2 on the Spotify US Viral Chart and #9 on the Global Viral Chart, with over 80 million streams to date) and “Remember” ft. Zohara (a November release that garnered 6.5 million streams in its first few weeks and earned support from Tiesto, who featured the track on an Instagram story).

Madison Beer releases “Dear Society”

Today, rising independent pop singer-songwriter Madison Beer released Dear Society’, the first single off her debut album, due out this summer.  The catchy single, co-written by Madison, is accompanied by a vintage, yet futuristic video, co-directed by The Young Astronauts and Madison. ‘Dear Society’ explores the constant pressure to be perfect in today’s society.  

“’ Dear Society’ is my letter to our culture expressing the pressure I feel from everyday life in today’s world.” Says Madison. “I know this is such a common struggle for so many people in my generation and I want this song to be an anthem for my fans so they know they are not alone; we are all in this struggle together.” Shot with a grainy, vintage aesthetic, the video mix’s elements of cult thrillers and psychological horror as it subtly shares the songs deeper message about the harmful effects of societal pressure. 

Recorded in LA, Madison wrote ‘Dear Society’ with Elizabeth Lowell Boland, Leroy Clampitt, Timothy Sommers, and Jeremy Dussoliet. It is produced by Big Taste and One Love. Recognized by Billboard on their 2018 “21 Under 21” roster of the most promising young talents in music, Madison proves that she is in control and has never been more confident as an artist. ‘Dear Society’ follows Madison’s ‘Hurts Like Hell’ ft. Offset, (which has amassed 115 million+ streams), and debut EP ‘As She Pleases’, (which has amassed 500 million+ streams), released in 2018. After selling out her first ever European and US headline tour last spring, Madison will hit the road again, both in the US and Europe, this fall. 

About Madison Beer

Her debut EP, ‘As She Pleases’ (which spawned ‘Home With You’, ‘Say It To My Face’ and ‘Dead’), has notched up over 500 million combined streams and accumulated Gold certifications in 3 countries after debuting in the Top 5 on iTunes in 18 countries and in the Top 10 in 42 countries worldwide.  Recognized by Billboard on their 2018 “21 Under 21” roster of the most promising young talents in music, Madison proves that she is in control and has never been more confident as an artist. Following the success of ‘Home With You’, Madison released ‘Hurts Like Hell’ ft. Offset, which has been described by Complex Magazine as her “biggest track to date.” The song is just a glimpse of what’s to come from her highly-anticipated upcoming debut studio album.

 Outside of her own music, Madison appeared on David Guetta’s album 7 and was featured on K/DA’s debut track “POP/STARS.” The latter track made its live performance debut in Seoul, Korea in front of an audience of 80 million viewers and went on to top Billboard’s world digital song sales charts and the iTunes charts in over 16 territories worldwide, demonstrating that Madison an international sensation.  This spring she released “All Day And Night” with Jax Jones, Martin Solveig, which has reached the top 10 in the UK iTunes chart.

Marchesa Donates Crazy Rich Asians Gown

Marchesa Donates Crazy Rich Asians Gown to the Smithsonian at Los Angeles Event

Dress Joins Collections in the National Museum of American History

Marchesa is donating the iconic blue dress that played an integral role in the Warner Bros. Pictures film Crazy Rich Asians to the National Museum of American History. The dress will be presented May 18 during “The Party: A Smithsonian Celebration of Asian Pacific Americans,” a Los Angeles event hosted by the Smithsonian’s Asian Pacific American Center at City Market Social House. “The Party” will celebrate and recognize the many contributions of Asian Pacific Americans to history and culture across industries, including music, film, sports and culinary arts. Tickets are available at Smithsonianapa.org.

This blue gown is part of a pivotal moment in the film’s plot in which Rachel Chu, played by actress Constance Wu, attends a high-profile wedding in defiance of her boyfriend’s disapproving mother Eleanor Young, played by Michelle Yeoh. The gown is a floor-length Grecian-style dress made of light blue tulle with floral applique, a deep V-neck and a cinched waist. The original version of the dress designed by Marchesa for its fall 2016 collection featured long sleeves, but they were temporarily removed by the film’s production for aesthetic purposes. The museum will receive the altered sleeveless version that appeared in the film.

“The film’s use of fashion is not merely decorative or secondary,” said Theodore S. Gonzalves, curator in the Division of Culture and Community Life at the National Museum of American History. “The cast’s clothing plays a crucial role in marking social class among its characters—from multi-generational moneyed elites of Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese immigrants), to the nouveau riche strivers of Singapore, to working class Chinese immigrants in the United States and their Asian American model minority progeny.”

Crazy Rich Asians is notable for having a mostly East Asian cast, the first Hollywood film to do so since The Joy Luck Club in 1993. The Warner Bros. film grossed $238 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy in a decade. The Crazy Rich Asians Marchesa gown joins a rich collection of museum artifacts with origins in film and entertainment such as Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Batman’s cowl from Batman and Robin and a handmaid’s costume from The Handmaid’s Tale TV show. The museum’s Archives Center also has a number of other theatrical scripts, video and audiotapes in its Luther Davis Collection.

“Representation of Asian Pacific Americans in film and media is critical to the visibility of a community who has made many contributions to the arts,” said Lisa Sasaki, director of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. “By collecting the film’s iconic dress, the Smithsonian is better able to present these contributions to the world.”

Marchesa is an American brand specializing in women’s wear based in New York City. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig established it in 2004.

From its establishment in 1997 as an initiative critical to the mission of the Smithsonian until today, the vision for the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center has been to enrich the American story with the voices of Asian Pacific Americans. Asian Pacific America is the story of a vibrant, diverse and resilient set of communities that have been part of the American experience for more than 200 years. The center believes that people’s understanding of America and America’s standing in the world is richer, more compelling and more powerful when it includes the Asian Pacific American story. “The Party” also marks the launch of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Keystone Initiative, which is designed to rally support for the first permanent Asian Pacific American Gallery within the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center serves as a dynamic national resource for discovering why the Asian Pacific American experience matters every day, everywhere and all of the time.

Through incomparable collections, rigorous research and dynamic public outreach, the National Museum of American History explores the infinite richness and complexity of American history. It helps people understand the past in order to make sense of the present and shape a more informed future. The museum is located on Constitution Avenue N.W., between 12th and 14th streets, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (closed Dec. 25). Admission is free. For more information, visit http://americanhistory.si.edu. For Smithsonian information, the public may call (202) 633-1000.

Dennis Quaid is “Mr. Lonely”

MIDLAND TAPS DENNIS QUAID AS “MR. LONELY”

Acclaimed actor and singer/songwriter, Dennis Quaid, joins GRAMMY®-nominated trio MIDLAND for his most intriguing role to date – “Mr. Lonely.” Starring in the chart-topping Texans’ music video, it highlights their sense of humor and effortless vintage country style. “Mr. Lonely” marks the first release off the band’s highly-anticipated second album (Big Machine Records). Earlier this month, Variety exclusively premiered a trailer showing Quaid’s Mr. Lonely getting a little roughed up encountering some of the women from his past.

CLICK HERE to watch “Mr. Lonely”

As a singer/songwriter, Quaid has hundreds of thousands of miles under his belt as a touring musician and continues to receive stellar reviews displaying equal ease with both originals and country standards with his all-star band, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks.

During a recent packed crowd at Billy Bob’s Texas, one reviewer noted how Quaid “delivered a memorable two-hour, 19-song set. The 64-year-old Quaid rushed onto the stage like a 20-year-old, and leapt into the crowd with his guitar during the second song to share some high fives, all without missing a note on his six string” (ILoveFTW.com).

Recently, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks celebrated Record Store Day by releasing their first-ever album, Out of the Box, on vinyl via Omnivore Records. Described by Quaid as “a junkyard of American music,” the A-side includes the original title track “Out of the Box” while the B-side features a rousing cover of Larry Williams’ hit “Slow Down.” Recorded at the legendary Village Studios in Los Angeles, the band’s debut album was released on CD and Digital last November to rave reviews.

On May 25, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks will open for Midland at their show in Westside Pavilion in Tuolumme, Calif.

Celebrating Earth Week 2019

Celebrating Earth Week 2019: Thinking Global, Acting Local

While consumers around the world are embracing sustainability and the environment more than just one day a year, Earth Day celebrations this week unify consumers in their efforts to make a positive impact on our planet and act as responsible global citizens. And while being a good global citizen takes center stage during the week of Earth Day, we see consumers taking an active stance on helping the planet throughout the entire year. So how are Americans embracing an eco-friendly mindset in individual cities across the nation?

To find out, we analyzed Nielsen Scarborough data to understand how Americans 18 and older are adopting eco-friendly activities on a regular basis. We looked at an array of market behavior and spending preferences on a designated market area (DMA) basis, including purchasing eco-friendly household cleaning products, driving less, donating money and participating in energy-saving programs.

When it comes to thinking global but acting local, consumers in Seattle/Tacoma, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose (27%) are the most active buyers of eco-friendly products and services, followed by Boston (22%), and Austin, Portland, and Washington, D.C. (21%).

The West Coast is Most Focused on Buying Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products

To keep things clean and eco-friendly, consumers in San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose lead the way in terms of purchasing eco-friendly cleaning products on a regular basis. Seattle/Tacoma came in at a close second, followed by Portland, Ore.

Using Reusable Shopping Bags

While it’s great to purchase eco-friendly products, it often comes with the need for something to carry those purchases home in. The Golden State reigns as the DMA with the most users of cloth and reusable shopping bags. San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose, and San Diego came in first at 79%, followed by Sacramento/Stockton/Modesto at 77% and Los Angeles (74%).

The Golden State is No. 1 in Electronic Recycling

San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose also came in first in electronic recycling of batteries, cell phones, and computers (62%) followed by Syracuse at 57% and Portland, Ore. (55%). Seattle/Tacoma, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose also ranked high in usage of rechargeable batteries (31%).

Shopping Organic and Local

Organic food buyers are most highly concentrated in San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose (41%), with East and West Coast cities New York and Los Angeles tied at 29%. Local food buyers are most concentrated in Hawaii’s state capital of Honolulu (58%).

Using Eco-Friendly Transportation

When getting around the green way, Portland, Ore., Salt Lake City,  San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose are the leading cities where people drive less and use alternative transportation.

As marketers and advertisers continue to engage eco-conscious consumers, knowing where those consumers live, understanding their habits and what’s important to them, can provide deep insights into how to reach them from an advertiser and merchandiser perspective.
