Thread: SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA compares themselves to THE BEATLES

    Default SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA compares themselves to THE BEATLES

    As a lot of you might recall, I made that statement in the "SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA" thread...

    Well now: http://www.nme.com/news/swedish-house-mafia/64475

    They've said it themselves...

    "I think the Beatles made something that's kind of melancholic to sad and happy combined, and that's just amazing. I kind of analyse music a lot, and I think that what the Beatles have done is what we do today. It doesn't matter that we do dance music."

    I could not agree anymore.

    By the way! SHM will be playing for 65 THOUSAND people on July 14, show is already sold out... Anyone still doubting me now?

    Also I'm perfectly happy with Mr. Ingrosso's comparison if it concludes with a gun wielding maniac riddling his lifeless body with bullets.

    Pretty much what creep said. And just because they are playing to 65,000 doesn't mean they will have equal amount of influence on the evolution of music years after, just like the beatles do. In short, your point is moot.

    Miranda May Kerr (born 20 April 1983)[1] is an Australian model. Kerr rose to prominence in 2007 as one of the Victoria's Secret Angels. She is the first Australian to participate in the Victoria's Secret campaign and also represents Australian fashion chain David Jones.

    Kerr began modeling in the fashion industry when she was 13, starting at Chaay's Modelling Agency, and soon after winning a 1997 Australian nationwide model search hosted by Dolly magazine and Impulse fragrances.[3] She is married to English actor Orlando Bloom.

    Kerr was born in Sydney[5] and raised in the small town of Gunnedah, New South Wales.[6] She is the daughter of Therese and John Kerr. She has a brother, Matthew, who is two years younger. In an interview, Kerr stated she is of English, French, and Scottish descent. During her childhood, Kerr "raced motorbikes and rode horses on her grandmother's farm." She describes her early life in the Australian countryside as "very grounding ... there wasn't any pretentiousness and no one really cared what you were wearing. You could just be you."[7]

    Her family moved to Brisbane to allow Kerr and her brother to experience city life. She graduated from All Hallows' School in 2000. Kerr studied nutrition and health psychology before pursuing modeling.[8][9]

    At age 13, Kerr entered and won the 1997 annual Dolly Magazine/Impulse Model Competition. She was flown to Sydney a week before her 14th birthday to shoot for the magazine. Upon Kerr's win, local media expressed "concerned outrage" at her young age. The controversy raised concerns about the glorification of young girls within the fashion, beauty, and entertainment industries.[7] Some media outlets claimed her Dolly shoot (including images of a 14-year-old Kerr in bathing suits) constituted a form of paedophilia. Of the press, Kerr said: "In the media at the time they were trying to cling on to anything remotely to do with paedophilia. Dolly is a magazine for teenage girls, not for old men. And I was fully clothed! Doing a winter shoot! They just made something out of nothing."[3]

    Kerr signed to Chic Management's Sydney division. She received considerable commercial exposure after a series of beachwear ads predominantly for Australian surf chain Billabong, in which Kerr modeled surf brands Tigerlily, Roxy, Billabong Girls, and One Teaspoon. This increased her profile in the Australian and Asian markets, after which Kerr relocated to New York where she became co-owner of the Bowery Ballroom.[3][7]

    In New York, Kerr had a multitude of runway appearances and then signed with NEXT Model Management in early 2004. From there, she was booked for runway and print campaigns for major labels, including Alex Perry, Baby Phat, Lisa Ho, Voodoo Dolls, Levi's, Bettina Liano, Nicola Finetti, L.A.M.B., Heatherette, Betsey Johnson, Trelise Cooper, Jets, John Richmond, Blumarine Swimwear, Neiman Marcus, Seafolly Swimwear, Anna Molinari, Rock and Republic, Roberto Cavalli, and Ober Jeans.[2] Kerr was also booked for print in magazines such as Elle, Australian Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, and was featured in television advertisements for brands like Portmans, Bonds, and Veet.[3][7]

    In early 2006, Kerr appeared in the finale episode of the TV show Project Runway, modeling clothes for contestant Daniel Vosovic's final collection. She was the first woman to walk down the catwalk. She debuted with the United States market when she signed a lucrative cosmetics contract with Maybelline New York. The campaign ran in a series of internationally sold women's beauty magazines, including Cosmopolitan, CLEO, and Elle, and was eventually featured in Victoria's Secret catalogues.[7] She (along with several other Victoria's Secret and Next agency models) was also featured in a music video for the American hip-hop single "Number One" by artists Kanye West and Pharrell.[3]
    2007–present

    Following her success with Maybelline,[7] Kerr became the first Australian model to be offered a contract with Victoria's Secret in 2007, replacing Gisele BŁndchen. Upon her acceptance, she became the first ever Australian Victoria's Secret Angel[10] joining the stable of models already signed to the lingerie giant, including Alessandra Ambrosio, KarolŪna KurkovŠ, Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks, Izabel Goulart, and Heidi Klum. Before becoming an Angel in 2007, Kerr was already picked to become the successor of Alessandra Ambrosio as the face of PINK in 2006. Kerr's popularity continued to increase as one of the globally recognized Angels when she appeared in the Victoria's Secret 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 televised runway shows, which aired on four continents.[7]

    In 2007, Kerr had signed on as the face of Californian fashion retailer Arden B. After debuting in their Spring and Summer ad campaigns, Kerr returned for their Fall 2007 campaign, shot by fashion photographer Diego Uchitel.[3] Following her modeling success with Victoria's Secret, Kerr made a small guest appearance in the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother alongside fellow Angels: Adriana Lima, Marisa Miller, Alessandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, and Selita Ebanks.[3] She also became the new face of Clinique Happy and signed a lucrative six-figure deal to be the new face of Australian department store David Jones, replacing model Megan Gale.[11] In 2008, having earned an estimated $3.5 million in the past 12 months, Forbes placed Kerr tenth in the list of the world's top-earning models.[12]

    Since 2009, Kerr was in the spring/summer ad campaign for XOXO.[13] She was in Forbes 2009 list of the world's highest-paid models, ranking 9th with estimated earnings of $3 million.[14] She left NEXT Model Management and signed with IMG Models.[15] Kerr posed nude on the cover of Rolling Stone Australia's July 2009 issue.[16] She then ended the year walking in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.[15]

    In October 2009, Kerr launched her own brand of organic skincare products, Kora Organics, with George Moskos,[17] and become the face for Kora Organic Skincare.[13]

    In June 2009, Kerr posed naked, chained to a tree, for an issue of Rolling Stone Australia magazine, in order to raise awareness for the endangered koalas.[16] Her charitable work includes Wildlife Warriors Worldwide and Children International.[18] In August 2010, Kerr released an inspirational self-esteem, self-help book, Treasure Yourself. Treasure Yourself is aimed at female teenagers.[18]

    She appeared in the 2010 Pirelli Calendar photographed by Terry Richardson in Bahia, Brazil.[19] Previously better known for her Victoria's Secret status rather than her high fashion work, Balenciaga is credited for launching her high fashion modeling career when casting directors Ashley Brokaw and Nicolas GhesquiŤre chose her to walk exclusively for the brand's spring 2010 runway show.[20] It was her first designer fashion show, aside from Victoria's Secret, since 2007.[2] A season later she walked for design company Prada for their Fall 2010 collection in Milan alongside fellow Angels Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio.[21] Kerr then modeled for campaigns for Prada and Jil Sander, and was shot by Steven Meisel for the cover of Italian Vogue for September.[20]

    In January 2011, Kerr became the first pregnant model for Vogue when featured in Vogue Australia, being six months pregnant at the time of the shoot.[22] In March she hit the catwalk for Balenciaga's Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection as part of Paris Fashion Week, two months after giving birth.[23] Kerr also posed nude for a 2011 Harper's Bazaar photo shoot.[24] In October at Paris Fashion Week SS12 she walked the runway for Christian Dior, Lanvin, Chanel, John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Viktor & Rolf and Loewe.[25] Kerr was chosen to present the $2.5 million Victoria's Secret Fantasy Treasure Bra for their fashion show in November 2011.[26]

    In January 2012, she was named ambassador for Qantas.[27]

    Models.com ranks her number 4 on the Top 20 sexiest models.[28] She has been ranked in FHM's '100 Sexiest Women' poll at #56 in 2009, #36 in 2010, and #44 in 2011.[29] She was named one of the "100 Hottest Women of All-Time" by Men's Health.[30]

    Kerr's model trademark is her dimples. Celebrity photographer Russell James said of Kerr, "The US has fallen in love with her. We love her because she has the most incredible girl-next-door look and she's also insanely beautiful. It means women are not intimidated by her looks and guys think they might be able to talk to her. It's a fantastic combination ... people want to be around her; she's fun on a shoot … and she's not stupid, which can be a very annoying trait among some models." Model agent Ursula Hufnagl described Kerr as "the perfect endorsement", citing her ability to "truly sell a product".[7]

    In early February 2010, Kerr inadvertently became the subject of global headlines when David Kiely, a banker at Macquarie Bank in Sydney, was caught viewing more explicit photos of her on his computer while in the background of a colleague's live television interview with Channel 7. Within days, a clip of the interview uploaded onto YouTube received over 1.3 million hits.[31] Eventually, Kiely was suspended and an internet campaign launched on his behalf. Kerr herself gave him her backing: "I am told there is a petition to save his job, and of course I would sign it." The incident prompted a 100% increase in the number of Google searches for Kerr's name.[32] A few days after the incident, Macquarie Bank announced that Kiely would keep his job.[33]
    Personal life

    Kerr practices Nichiren Buddhism and believes "we have a responsibility to bring peace and harmony to our lives and the world." As part of her Nichiren beliefs, Kerr reportedly chants every morning and night for 20 minutes, practices yoga, meditates, and reads widely on spirituality.[7] She maintains her physique through daily yoga, light jogging, and a diet of steamed vegetables, fresh fruit, and fish.[34] Kerr's mother Therese has been the General Manager of KORA Organics since February 2010.[35] The company is based in Sydney. Kerr's brother Matt also works for the company.

    In 2003, Kerr began dating finance broker Adrian Camilleri. Following an Australian Securities and Investments Commission investigation, Camilleri was found guilty on five counts of fraudulent behaviour from February 2003 to February 2004. Kerr subsequently ended the relationship. A 2007 newspaper report claims that Kerr suffered financially "after taking her boyfriend's financial advice" but chose not to take legal action.[36]

    She formerly dated Jay Lyon (Brent Tuhtan), the lead singer of the band Tamarama, who has made appearances on season one of the MTV series The City. Kerr starred in Tamarama's video clip for "Everything To Me". The two began dating in 2003 and had a four year relationship, which ended on mutual terms in mid-2007.[37]

    Kerr began dating actor Orlando Bloom in late 2007.[38] He is also an SGI member. On 12 February 2009, Kerr and Bloom participated in the "Australia Unites" fundraiser to raise money for the victims of the Australian bushfires on 7 February 2009.[39] In 2009, the Bling Ring broke into Bloom's home. The group stole luxury brand clothing and jewelry. In this case, the ringleader allegedly wanted Kerr's Victoria's Secret lingerie.[40] The couple's engagement was announced on 21 June 2010.[41] Kerr released a statement on 22 July 2010, confirming that she and Bloom had married in "an intimate ceremony."[4] On 6 January 2011, Kerr gave birth to their first child, a son named Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom.[42][43][44] The middle name Christopher comes from Kerr's ex-boyfriend,[45] Christopher Middlebrook[46] who died in a car accident in 1998 when they were 15. The two were still dating at the time.[47]

    Kerr told readers of Australian Cosmopolitan that coconut oil was the key to her clear skin, shiny hair and trim figure, saying she ingests four tablespoons a day, either on salads, in her cooking or in her cups of green tea.[48][49]

    Ramoni Olalekan Mustapha is a Nigerian senator who represents the People's Redemption Party (PRP) in Ogun State. He became a member of the Nigerian Senate in 2007.

    Ramoni Olalekan Mustapha was born in 25 February, 1960. He has a National Diploma in Public Health from the Ogun State College of Health Technology. Prior to election to the senate, he was Chairman of the Ogun State Task Force on Building Projects. He was Chairman of the Ijebu North Local Government, Ijebu-Igbo (1996–1997), and was elected as a member of the House of Representatives (2003–2007) for the Ijebu North/East/Ogun Waterside consituency.[

    Ramoni O Mustapha was elected to the National Senate for the Ogun East constituency in 2007 and was appointed to committees on Niger Delta, Interior Affairs, Commerce and Capital Markets.[1] His election was challenged, but in May 2008 the Election Petition Tribunal upheld his election.[3]

    In September 2007, Sen Olalekan Mustapha sponsored an Environmental Health Control Bill.[4] In December 2007, Senator Mustapha and five other members of the Senate Committee on the Interior Ministry made an official tour of Seme, where they inspected the chaotic conditions of the Nigerian posts at the Benin Republic border.[5]

    In May 2008, Senate President David Mark named members of the committee to review the 1999 constitution, to be headed by Senator Ike Ekweremadu. Olalekan Mustapha was one of the members chosen to represent the southwest zone.[6]

    In an August 2008 report the Senate Committee on Interior, chaired by Olalekan Mustapha, reported that prisons across the country were in poor repair and no longer fit for human habitation. In addition, the prisons were severely overcrowded. The report urgued funding for improvements.[7] In February 2009, Olalekan Mustapha visited London, England to discuss terms for repatriation of over 800 Nigerian prisoners.
