Happy Mother’s Day, Britney!
Fans put together this special video for you to enjoy your special day.
#BritneyIsAPerfectMother was a World-wide Trending Topic on Twitter today!
Happy Mother’s Day to all Buzzneters moms out there, too. And mine! Love ya, mom.
My mom told me that on tv this morning there was a news about this little pygmy hippo of a month since she knows I much I love hippos, they are definitely among my favorite animals, if not my favorite ever.
So this little hippo was born the last March 22nd at Cango Wildlife Ranch, in Oudtshoord, in South Africa. His mother Hilda refused him at the birth, so he's been adopted by Toni Inggs with which he seems to be really closed.
The little Harry needs to attentions and cures not only because he's so little but because his breed is threatened with extinction.
The persons in charge of the centre wanted to call him with a name with the "H" as first letter since his parents were called Hilda and Herber, so they thought about the UK prince, Harry and his love for Africa.
Hilda, his mother, already had eight pregnancy, but only three babies, Harry was one of them.
Harry needs to drink 125ml of milk each three hours for the first three months and then you could feed on his own.
Cango Wildlife Range is specialized in threaten species breeding, among which cheetahs, tigers and crocodiles.
Rob Hall, centre's director said: "When Hilda was pregnant we were so happy and waited the birth so much. Now we take care of Harry and we are so glad he is with us, it's not a problem! We are sure he will grow up health and strength"
What do you think about this sweet story?
Do you like hippos?
E! News just confirmed Britney Spears is a judge on X Factor! Did they mean to say she’s “this close” to signing, or this shiz a done deal?
They also claim Demi Lovato will be the fourth judge, which I think’s also a great pick; Demi’s a starlet that was caught in the midst of fame, causing her to hit rock bottom before she began to recover. Britney knows a thing or two about that.
Are you READY?!
What do you think about Britney and Demi as judges on X Factor?
Will you follow the show because of them?

Hey guys, this is my second blog about my deep passion for this amazing band.
As I said in the first one, I wanted to see Tokio Hotel live in Milan on October 30, 2007 and unluckily I couldn’t, but just a month ago there already was a new tour and this time my parents and especially my daddy could take me, so on November 28, 2007 I bought tickets for Bologna, the date had to be March 26, 2008. Why I wrote “had to be”, well… I think this is one of the most saddest moments I had in my whole life and this isn’t definitely a reaction of a baby girl but of a girl who really love someone else and is really worried about. But I would like to explain everything in order…
I was really really excited about that day, I was literally counting the days, finally I could see them in a little time after have become a fan that I couldn’t believe it!
Every time I read March 26, 2008 I jumped and a huge smile appeared on my face but soon that smile turned into a long crying and an infinite sadness.
A few of days before Bologna date, Bill started to feeling not good and already in Marseille, on March 14, he already hadn’t voice anymore and the last part of the concert was totally sung by the crowd.
Bill is so professional and he wanted have rehearsals as well in Lisbon on March 16, but before the concert started he has been transported with an extreme urgency in a hospital in Germany because the situation was really bad. The venue was full of people but instead to rocking on the stage, Tom, Georg and Gustav appeared on with an interpreter, Tom explained the situation: Bill was really really sick and he was already on a helicopter toward Germany, it has to be operated immediately.
In those moments I really didn’t know, I was so worried and I hope everything turned in better… I hoped my date was save, but I clearly knew it the situation couldn’t be saved in just a few days and it was something of really bad.
I had to leave on Wednesday and on Saturday I’ve read the news also Bologna concert and all the other dates of the tour were deleted. I really can remember in a clear way that moment. I was in front of the pc and in a Tokio Hotel’s website tag, there was written in red: “All Tokio Hotel concerts, includes the Italian dates are deleted because of Bill’s cyst at vocal cords”. For the first 30 seconds my brain froze then like a robot I stand up and I went to my mom that was in bathroom, I can still remember the hour, it was 10pm, she saw my absent face, it seemed I already have seen a ghost and she asked me: “What’s happened?” and I could talk, she repeated me the question a few times and I just could say: “Bill” and then I started to cry.
My mom read the news on the screen and she was so worried too, my dad came in my room and saw me crying, he embraced me so tight and I cried all my tears. I couldn’t stop! My dad kept me between his arms until midnight/midnight and half then he laid me in bed and I continued to cry… I wanted to listen Bill’s voice and I heard some TH’s in my mp3 player, of course I chose shuffle mode and you couldn’t believe if I said the mp3 player chose the saddest ones, seriously!
I really don’t know when I fell asleep, the morning later was Easter Sunday, for just an instant I thought it was only a bad nightmare, but unluckily it wasn’t and when my mom woke me up, tears started to fall again. That day I bought two magazines and inside there were Tokio Hotel stuff and two posters, those two posters still are fixed in my room and they are so special for me and I think I will never remove them from my room. My mom got me a little stuffed mouse and I called him Tom.
For the whole day I was absent, I had some members of my family, but I didn’t talk, I didn’t eat, I’ve been the whole day in my room. My friend Luca was to his uncle’s home for celebrate Easter and when I texted him about this situation he came back home and we chatted for the whole day because he wanted leave me alone. I really appreciated this and I will always be glad to him. I constantly listen Tokio Hotel’s songs and I prayed for Bill.
The most traumatic day was the concert day, when my friends saw me at school they were shocked and immediately tons of questions started to arrive and I only said: “Bill is sick, he has to operated” and then I repeated for the whole day “I shouldn’t to be there! I should to be at Tokio Hotel concert!”
What I hate the most was when my best friend said me: “Please, Irene. Now, stop it!” I really didn’t expect this reaction to her since few days before she called me saying: “No problem, everything is going ok and if they delete Bologna concert, I take you in Lubiana (Slovenia) for that concert!”…. maybe hurt me the most what she said more than the whole situation.
The straw that broke the camel’s back has been when her boyfriend asked me if Bill was dead with the operation, I was really really angry and luckily my best friend at the time, replied him back saying he was stupid and he had to shut up otherwise I could punch his face, my friends blocked me, but I was so close to do it!
But as I always say, after the storm there always is the rainbow, luckily Bill’s operation has gone really good and after rehab he come back to talk and sing again and finally the great news: a new tour in Summer and the Bologna tickets were available for Modena date, on July 11.
First interview and video message after Bill's operation
(English translation in the description box of the videos)
I was freaking happy finally I could see them and see my lovely angel.
In that same period I knew a girl, Giada, who was a TH's fan too as her sister, Sara... I was so happy because I could share with other people my passion and love... we talked a lot about them and stuff like that, and also she went to Modena with her sister, but they went there a day before, for to be in front row... I couldn't. Because my dad couldn't have the permission from the work, so we went in Modena the same day of the concert (Modena is not so far to Trieste, something like 4 hours)...
I was already organized with Giada and her sister, because searching in internet about infos and news of TH, I found that there were a sort of tickets for the front row and a person could take 3 tickets, so I said to Giada to take 3 tickets or special pass how you prefer, for my dad, my friend Selene and me so we could stay all together...
Then the plans changed and those tickets weren't available anymore... Who arrived before stayed in front row, the others stayed after another barrier... I was really sad! But I didn't despair... the happiness for to see them after such a long time was more strong...
But there were another problem... On July 6th, TH performed in Rome, and it was a total chaos, no tickets control, and the people entered in the hippodrome (TH performed at Ippodromo Cappanelle) just like horses and the security didn't exist... Plus, the day before the concert, fans did a total chaos who the band had to delete the date, and I was despair if happened with Modena too... So I lived stressing days before the concert...
At 7am of July 11th, 2008, I leaved my city for Modena. (I have to say I didn't eat nothing in the morning, my stomach was closed and adrenaline was all around my body, but in the car, I ate a lot of chips and popcorn with my friend Selene, so I wasn't completely empty xD)
At midday finally we arrive in Modena, before we go in the hotel for put our stuff and then we go at Parco Novi Sad, concert’s location, a really huge place (now it's a parking). The concert was an open air, always loved them! It was damn hot, there! I know what mean live in a city with a lot of humidity but Modena beated Trieste. A lot of people were already there... The atmosphere was really good (the first and the last time I saw an atmosphere like that in a TH concert or event), a lot of kiosks were all around the venue and I took advantage and I bought a pillow with TH's photo during EMA's 07 and a tshirt with SCREAM cover...
It was something like 1pm and TH started the sound-check, I could listen the beat of Gustav's drum, the riff of Tom's guitar and Bill's voice. In that moment I started to cry and I continued to repeat to my mom: "Mom! It's Bill! It's Bill!!! He's singing!!!" and I jumped and my mom started to cry too because she saw me damn happy. It's for that reason I have a particular connection with 1000 Meere, this is the song I listened to sing by Bill with my ears after his operation. They also checked Break Away and Final Day.
Luckily the organization did enter the people a lot before what they said, and at 1:45am I was inside the venue, I was soooooo happy to be there and I was happy to be near enough, I saw all the huge stage and I was just on the barrier who separated the part where stayed the people who came the day before and the people who came the same day. It was so perfect for my eyes! And I was happy! (Now I have to say, I'm happy only if I am in front row xD well, now the things are different and I know all the stuff that happen during a concert, so I'm psychologically prepared to everything)
And from that moment the time seemed was never passing! It was hard, really really hard, because it was so hot and so humid, we started to open umbrellas and firemen threw water with the pump for refresh us, but all this wasn't so length because it was terribly hot...
I knew a couple of sweet girls (and also in this case I can say: first and last time) and as happened for the other concerts, I was the older one (I was 17 years and half there)...
The sun was burning and I saw a lot of girls faint and I continued to repeat to myself: "I'm the next one! I'm the next one!", I still have a peach tea in my bag, it was hot too, but my body needed of sugar and so I drank it in an only one gulp. Then I felt me better and I was ready to enjoy the concert.
First of Tokio Hotel concert, there was another band, an Italian band, called LOST who I hate them because in my opinion they didn't know what music is and they don't know play music... the most of their first songs were covers something like "SexyBack" of Justin Timberlake and "Backstreet's Back" of BSB, who I listened when I was 6 years old and all the girls screamed so loud and I said: "Oh God! Now I understand, you are so young, I feel me really old! I was 6 when this song played on the radios and it was of BSB, but maybe you weren't still born!". I hate them because they were totally rude, especially the singer, Walter, they were in my same hotel, I found them in the breakfast room with me and the other people who stayed in the hotel, and my mom asked an autograph and also if I could to shoot a picture to all of them while they were having breakfast and he said: "No, Miss. We have to having breakfast!" in a bad way. F**k you!
By the way, coming back to most important thing: Tokio Hotel arrived on stage in a little bit late, at 9:33pm (sometimes I'm so scared how many details I remember about those moments) and started the chaos.
I couldn't believe to live that moment, to be there and to see the band, to see with my eyes my angel who he was well again, and he was singing for me! In those moments, all the other 17,999 people didn't exist, but only the band and me!
I started to cry and to scream Bill's name so loud!
A girl who never saw before, maybe she passed the other one and arrived where I was, embrace me and kiss me on the cheek, really I don't know who she is because I didn't ask her name or nothing... but she has been so cute! She was like an angel, seriously!
She also helped me to raise the board I made for Bill & Tom for In Die Nacht, it was a really cool board and it was written: "Bill und Tom, Zwei Sterne In Die Nacht", (two stars in the night) we raised it before they started to play this magic song in a really closed moment. Bill was up and was looking the immense crowd, he was so proud to be there (also in Caught On Camera DVD he will say it, and all the band too. Tokio Hotel loved Modena concert!)... he looked to his left, where I was with the board and he saw it and smiled and put his hands on his heart, I was sooooooooo happy, oh Lordy! I have shiver only to remember that moment. The girl who helped me started to jump and embraced me again and she said me: "He saw it! He saw it!" and I was crying, I was speechless!
One of the moment I loved most was during "Live Every Second", unluckily they didn't play German version, so when Bill arrived on the catwalk and left the crowd to sing: "Liveeeeeeeeee Every Seeeeeeecond!" after him, all of us started to sing: "Leeeeeeeb' Die Sekuuuuuuuuuunde" in German and he was so cute, he was like: "WTF?" xD
Tokio Hotel performed for over 2 hours, everything was amazing, the concert was half in German and half in English, and doesn't matter if during "Geh" Tom's guitar broke, it's something that happen during live concert and it's a part of them, we screamed a lot for Tom as to say: "Don't worry, it's all ok! You rock!"
Around midnight, the concert was finished. I couldn't believe to have waited so much and it was all finished!
I was crying, I think to have cried for all the two hours and half of concert, and even now I'm thinking where I found all that water, because I sweated for the whole day!
Then I went to my dad, who wasn't with me, but it was in another part and filmed all the show, I'm so glad of him! He did a great work! I arrived to my dad and to Selene (because she preferred to stay with him because until the day before she had flu and nosebleed) and in tears I embrace him and continued to cry. A lot of girls looked me in a bad way (typical) and they said: "Oh, she's crying!" and I said: "What? What the hell? I'm crying because I'm happy! Because I can't believe what I've seen. I've just seen my reason of life!"
I got dirty my dad’s tee with my makeup, but it's something that it's part of TH's ritual concerts, after the show I go to my dad, I embrace him and I cry so much and I get dirty his tee (happened in Padova, last year too) and if he's not with me, I call him (and my mom too) at the phone and I cry as well.
When the people was going out the venue, I had to threw on stage some things for the guys, in the hope to see them wearing something I bought for them (as a cap for Tom and a bracelet for Bill that I have it too, with our names on)... and then my dad brought me a Bill's tee, from the official TH's store.
When we went out the venue and went in the car, TH's cars passed in front of us and I was: "Oh My God!", we came back on the hotel and finally I could to go in the bathroom.
It was the first time I stayed up something like 12 hours and I didn't go at the toilet for 15 hours.
It's something I repeated several times from that moment, but I'm always happy to do it, because it's not a weight for me, I do it because I want it! Because I know what happen after all of that!
It was an awesome experience, I would to live it again!
Definitely this has been the most exciting moment of 2008 for me that I lived and shared with Tokio Hotel!
MY TOP 5 TOKIO HOTEL’S FAVORITE MOMENT OF 2008:
- Definitely one moment has to be dedicated to Buzznet. The lovely Bree had the pleasure to interview the band when they have been in US for their promotional tour. I really love this interview, it’s so funny!
- Comet 2008 winning: Tokio Hotel won four Comet Awards that year, and I was freaking happy!
- Bill’s Kart Revenge: I really love this TH TV Episode, it’s one of my favorite, and I really love how Bill drives the go-kart hahahah you have to watch the video for understand my hilarity XD and also listen the talk between Tom and Bill after the race hahahah
- 1000 Meere Performance @ NRJ Awards, it’s not so much about the performance, but about the song itself, since as I wrote before, I really love it and I’m so closed to it! The lyrics are fucking beautiful and I’ve been so glad to have listened it with my ears in Modena
- EMA’s 2008 message for a fan: this is literally one of the funniest video ever, I laugh a lot until tears every time I watch it, please, if you didn’t do it yet, do it now! It’s HILARIOUS XD the whole video is so cool but definitely check out at 2:00, it’s the part I was talking about!
TO BE CONTINUED...
“This Kiss” leaked in FULL!
Rumor has it it’s written by Nicole Morier (Heaven On Earth, How I Roll, Mmm Papi) from the Circus era. The track sounds like a mystical Britney singing underwater, longing for just one more kiss from her luva.
Pure pop genius! Check it out:
What do you think about this unreleased?
I think it's so fresh and perfect for summer time and party on the beach!
Hey guys, finally this video is done!
I know it's such a long time I don't upload a video and I'm so sorry for that but I had tons of stuff to do for Uni, two exams to prepare and one to get yet and making videos really was in the end of my list, for a period I opened the pc just a hour in the evening just for checking some updates and nothing more.
But today I finished this video I promised for the 100,000 views of my channel, now that I reached them I decided to upload this video, it's been such a long work and I also get mad because of Sony Vegas didn't save me a part of the project, so I had to do almost half of it again!
I'm pretty satisfied about the result, I really love Circus song and all the performances Britney did along "Circus Era"...
I chose to do a different intro, with a part of Nightwish song "Scaretale" includes in their new album "Imaginaerum", I think it fits in a perfect way!
Yesterday was also my first YT anniversary here with this channel and damn, it's an amazing way for celebrate with this video!

I think at least, everyone of you, knows how much important is music for me and how I respect it and how much dedication I put in it: writing about, going at concerts, collecting cds and more...
What I love the most about music is that it can speak also without words, I wanna remind that music was born as instrumental form and after arrived the first chants but for such a long period there was no musical notiation and everything was transmitted in oral form.
Leaving apart music history, I always loved to discover new artists of each genre, I always had this passion and I always liked read about who I listen and get some infos about their life, their passions and how they getting closer to the music.
The last artists I had the pleasure to discover are four beautiful ladies, from Germany, called: EKLIPSE.
They are the supporter for the Nightwish "Imaginaerum European Tour" and I have to say they really rock the stage!
Their peculiarity is to play covers of different songs of any genre in an original key: with strings (two violins, a viola and a cello) and what also immediately catch the attention is their gothic look full of black clothes, lace, amazing haircuts and accessories.
The first thing someone can think is they are a metal or gothic band because of the look but they can be defined a mix between pop, rock and classic. There are cover of pop songs like "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga or r'n'b ones like "Cry Me A River" by Justin Timberlake.
I think that sometimes define an artist or a band in a genre is reductive! Music speaks, doesn't matter which genre it is! Personally I love them a lot and I wanna get their album, it inspires me a lot!
I hope to see them again soon!
First violin. In real life as well as in music. The first and last word. Young, outrageously sexy, and well aware of it. The last one standing at the end of the night. On the clouds or in chains, never in-between. Bloody fingers and discipline to the point of unconsciousness.
Violin. Secret service father, ice skating mother, childhood in transit. Speaks Russian, Dutch, German, but nary a word too many, it could give the game away. Lovers come and go, the eye is never revealed. Conservatory in Holland, rigorous training, the most beautiful creature of the night, a double life. Deep passion, ice cold Scarlett.
Viola. Romantic warrior. In search of the higher order and lowest anchor. Trained by mother, perfected in long nights. Father a sculptor. Love is the last resort, only music matters.
Cello. The instrument as a pure, lascivious symbol, the mastery of which is a deep act of satisfaction. Perfect pitch, musical parents, plays every instrument, loves cello because it kills her. Infinite talent, doesn't speak, unless in a whisper. Music comes to her, in the sheets rather than in the rehearsal room.

I really wanna share with you, what my daddy just wrote in occasion of Nightwish concert of Wednesday, I think he wrote such amazing words and I really would like if you spend a few of minutes reading these lines...
Milan: April 25, 2012
Mediolanum Forum is full of people, already waiting outside the venue in the first hours of the morning for the only Italian date of Imaginaerum Tour of Nightwish.
It's been such a beautiful concert supported by a frame of crowd worthy of the great occasions.
Some thoughts on the members of the band, three years after the last performance.
Anette: she is really improved and especially "matured" with the voice. Secure, determinated, holds really good all the songs and "bring home" also the original and sweet acoustic version of "Nemo"
Emppu: a real guitar's elf, he moves freely on the stage suggest himself in featuring with all the others, basic for the band, as usual he gives the 100%: a guarantee
Jukka: another constant of the band, he never reserves himself. A bundle of nerves and muscles that beat on the drums on and on and you ask yourself where he takes strength and energy. With his lungs with the drumsticks trembled also the second stands of the arena.
Tuomas: it's difficult divert from his magnetic look also when he does his evolutions on the keyboards. He seems to keep a step back to the others and keeps aside instead he still and always is the "brain" of the band and I think he is a step forward and maybe more.
Marco: in this new album and tour, it's been proposed him more space and he has taken it, in a great way! A very driving force inside and outside the stage, able to overwhelm anyone of every age, insomuch as is natural to say: "Marco Rules!"
These are only some thoughts or better reflections, not of an expert, but of a follower or a lover, a man who listens music for over 40 years and even though I closed at this genre not so much years ago, I think to have developed a good enough ears to make me understand the soundness of what I listen.
Britney fans are so damn talented! Britney fan Sam Tsui just made this awesome mashup of some of Brit’s best singles, creating a medley.
