Stephen Hawking, science’s brightest star, has died

Stephen Hawking, the brightest star in the firmament of science, whose insights shaped modern cosmology and inspired global audiences in the millions, has died aged 76.

“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny”, Stephen Hawking lived by his words. He overcame a crippling muscular disorder to bring the most complex scientific ideas to us.

Such an illustrious star, a supernova, in his brief but stellar moment in the history of our time.

To infinity & beyond, he will always be remembered & missed. RIP Sir!!

Fuck The Haters

Is not only gay to discriminate, hate and judge one another, straights ladies do it greatly too. I seriously can’t understand why so many women hate Angelina Jolie so much.

They still have their mind in the past for something is none of their business.

Listen, nobody steals no one’s man, when a person leaves its partner is because the couple is already broken.

Also, before judging her actions and appearance have the decency to go to war zones, refugee camps, give a speeches at the UN,UNESCO, UNICEF and assorted organisations, build shelters for those in need, donate millions to charity to fight poverty, AIDS, Cancer, fly a plane, adopt a kid, and do half of whatever else this incredible kick-ass woman does. 

That’s right, just SHUT UP!!

Decadencia 10 Years Later…

How to start… 10 years ago one of my favourite singers, in fact one of the best voices in the Spanish world, THE WORLD, Monica Naranjo released Tarantula, her 5th studio album and masterpiece.

Tarantula was Monica’s comeback after 8 years out of the spotlight. But this new Monica had nothing to do with the sexy femme fatale she used to be. Her new image was dark and also more mature, the image of someone who had survived the pains of life.

The first single from Tarantula, Europa, was a smashing hit.

That same year few months before, I broke up with the person I thought I would marry, and I was living months of depression and seclusion because I was also someone else. Life was too good for me, everything was great, I was very naive, almost innocent like a kid, and never experienced despair.

Europa saved me in a way, the lyrics fit me like a glove, I felt related to the song.

And all that overwhelming feeling evolved into something creative and since all my talent is to get naked, I decided to try painting…

With Europa playing on repeat, Decadencia saw the light… My first amateur painting (picture at the bottom on the yellow rectangle) among the few others after that.

Decandencia was a huge canvas, perhaps 1/4 of a wall. And oil and acrylic the texture of my depression.

This year marks a decade of all that. Something I won’t forget because it made me who I am (with all the shit I went trough and people I met later) a strong person, yet empathetic with those in need.

I firmly believe one doesn’t learn with age, but learns with damages.

Ladies and gentlemen, my saviour, my muse, one of the greatest voices of this planet…

Gracias, GODDESS!

Google Honours Marlene Dietrich

One of Hollywood’s Golden Age legends has been glorified in a Google Doodle.

Described as “a wild original”, and hailed as the ninth-greatest female star of classic Hollywood cinema, Maria Magdalene Dietrich would have been 116 on Wednesday.

In her honour, Google is changing its logo in 24 countries to a doodle.

During World War II, Dietrich was a high-profile entertainer in the US and was also noted for housing German and French exiles, providing financial support and advocating for their US citizenship.

Dietrich was honoured several times for her work on improving morale on the front lines during the war. The awards included the US Medal of Freedom and the French Legion d’Honneur. She was also named by Belgium a Knight of the Order of Leopold. 

In 1999, the American Film Institute named Dietrich the ninth-greatest female star of classic Hollywood cinema.

One of the things she was well known for in Hollywood was her gender norm-bashing. Dietrich was often dressed in men’s suits and was a bisexual woman with one of her most famous relationships being with Mercedes de Acosta, a lesbian playwright.

Dietrich’s legacy to film and fashion and queer identity in Hollywood remains iconic long after her death at the age of 90 in 1992. She was a woman with big energy and big appetites for love and passion.

It is no wonder we are still talking about her today.
