Katy Perry .:. Teenage Dream

[pro-player width=’420′ height=’300′ type=’video’]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22RNJLPCDyg[/pro-player]
Teenage Dream” is a song by American recording artist Katy Perry. It was release as the second single from her second mainstream studio album of the same name on July 23, 2010 through digital distribution. Perry and Bonnie McKee wrote many songs with a youthful theme in mind, but they were rejected by producers Benny Blanco and Dr. Luke. Blanco showed them The Teenagers‘s single “Homecoming”, and McKee imagined “Teenage Dream” as a throwback song to the euphoric feelings of being in love as a teenager. They met with Max Martin in Perry’s hometown of Santa Barbara, California and started writing the track, which Perry later described as a pure moment for her. After Perry recorded her vocals, McKee presented her idea and the chorus was rewritten. Perry also described the song as reminiscent of her youth while contemplating her future marriage to boyfriend Russell Brand.

“Teenage Dream” is a midtempo pop song with a retro sound. Perry starts singing in a high voice and her vocals grow stronger as the song progresses. Lyrically it talks about being with a lover that makes one feel young again.

The music video for “Teenage Dream” was filmed in Santa Barbara in July 2010, and was directed by Yoann Lemoine . Perry planned the concept along with the songwriters during the sessions. Pictures from the shoot feature Perry kneeling in the sand looking at a man (played by Josh Kloss) wearing speedos, while others show her kissing the man in a hotel pool. She commented about the filming on her Twitter, saying, “That’s a wrap for Teenage Dream! So gorgeous […] In my hometown. I got to cast all my friends in the new music video for Teenage Dream = amazing insanity.”

[pro-player width=’420′ height=’300′ type=’video’]http://vimeo.com/11798117[/pro-player]
Rooney is a five-piece American rock band from Los Angeles. Rooney’s third full-length album was released on June 8, 2010, through California Dreaming Records, Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group. The first single from their soon to be released third album Eureka, “I Can’t Get Enough” gives fans of the Southern California pop outfit Rooney a nice indication as to the chipper sound the band is embracing these days. Yes, it’s reminiscent of the chunks of cheer they’ve been handing out for all these years, but that’s the way we like it. The video is also a real hoot…especially for those who like their roller derby served with a fair amount of cosmic ridiculousness. Video Directed by Marcus Herring!

We collaborated on the wardrobe and had meetings about hair and makeup people, we talked a lot on the phone and met Tone and Rich — two of the best choreographers. [..] [Spears]’ so sweet and funny and so normal and down to earth. It’s really fun as a director to see her in front of the camera. She’s so creative with this stuff. The video is very simple, it’s very, very minimal. So it’s her, her, her. And she’s totally engaging every second. She really knows how to work with a camera and move. I was really impressed, and I have worked almost with every female artist in the business”.

DNA – The Demi and Ashton Foundation – aims to eliminate child sex slavery worldwide. Believing that freedom is a fundamental human right, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher founded DNA to help raise awareness about this horrific problem, change cultural stereotypes and rehabilitate the innocent victims.

More people are slaves today than ever before and the numbers are soaring. Men, women and children are enslaved for many purposes including sex, pornography, forced labor and indentured servitude. Among slaves, children are the most vulnerable and their rights are the least recognized. Each year, the global sex slavery market generates $32 billion in profits. More than one million women and children are trafficked across international borders every year. In just the United States, between 150,000 and 300,000 children are enslaved and sold for sex. The sex slavery industry has become an increasingly important revenue source for organized crime because each young girl can earn between $150,000 and $200,000 each year for her pimp.
