Elka accused of plagiarism of Hot Hot Heat song “Shame On You”

Russian/Ukrainian singer, who goes under the name of Elka (pronounced Yolka), for the past two years gained enormous popularity in former USSR for her song called “Provence”.  But she is now accused of plagiarism, the chorus of her song is almost identical to the tune from the Hot Hot Heat song called “Shame On You”.

You can listen to the music in the video below where they alternate between the Canadian original and the song that is thought to be the knock off.  Obviously, Elka completely denies such accusations and says that the song came to her composer from outer space by SMS.

But why is it that the same tune performed by Elka got so much attention and the original didn’t?  Perhaps because of her beautiful video clip, uplifting lyrics (her song is about her exciting anticipation of her trip tomorrow to the suburbs of Paris), and of course her large promotional budget.

Would you say that it is possible that Elka’s composer didn’t actually copy that song and simply came up with such a similar tune?  I’d love to hear your opinion.

Katie DiCicco, the singer from Chica Bomb, is about to release a new song

January 27, 2013 under Famous

Katie DiCicco in fancy pantyhose - singer for Chica Bomb and Sugar KillerKatie DiCicco is a young woman who’s voice had the whole Europe dancing a couple of years back to the #1 hit song Chica Bomb, the single by Dan Balan.

In case you forgot who is Dan Balan, let me remind you – he is one of the boys who sang the Romanian Numa Numa song.  Their band split up, so he continued his career on his own.

In her recent feature with Stoli TV Katie mentions that she has a degree in apparel design from Cornell university.

Could her fashion background explain this wonderfully styled photo that appeared as a cover for her Sugar Killer album?  As you are probably guessing, I loved this photo so much because of those black and white pantyhose that show off Katie’s legs.

According to Katie’s PR team (who by the way provided me with this beautiful uncropped photo) there is going to be another single coming out soon and a video to follow, but this time it will not be with Dan Balan.

As soon as they release that secret, I’ll do a post here to keep you current.  You can also follow Katie DiCicco’s career by connecting with her through Social Media.

My Facebook friend dedicates her hosiery purchase to me!

December 5, 2012 under News

I am so excited that one of my Facebook friends, Liz Anne, dedicated her purchase of tights to me!  No one has ever done that before.  That’s an original thought.

Liz is a Toronto-based PR professional who helps musicians to gain maximum publicity.

For me, it nice to know that someone things about me when buying a fashion pair of hosiery!

Eric Prydz – “Call On Me” – awesome pantyhose video clip!

November 10, 2012 under Famous

As I was browsing Youtube, I came across the hottest music video from 2004 by the Swedish artist Eric Prydz.

Besides that this is a great song for working out, they have a very nice dance team there in bodysuits and shiny pantyhose.

The lead dancer is in fact a qualified aerobics instructor.  Her name is Deanne Berry and she is from Australia, teaching up to this very day!

From her Facebook page “Deanne Berry is an Australian dancer/model/fitness expert and choreographer best known for her appearance in the music video for the single “Call on Me” by Eric Prydz. Deanne was seen with Mr Motivator on GMTV for a month and now Sport Relief!!”



 


 

 

 Hey, if I can dress up like that for an aerobics class, I’m joining!

Jenna Talackova and Wonder Girls

August 4, 2012 under Famous

One of the stars of the gay parade this year is Jenna Talackova, a local Vancouver’s transgendered beauty who fought for her right to be in the beauty contest.  She got disqualified at some point for not being born a woman.

Turns out that she is a big fan of Korean music.  On this photo she is posing with Wonder Girls and in one of her interviews she mentioned that she looked up to Harisu, Korean transgender pop star.

Why would a young woman of Czech descent look up to Koreans?  I guess since she was born in a city like Vancouver, with so many foreign influences, just about any ethnic combination is possible.  She is very unique in her ways and I admire her for that.

What is this? At least looks stylish.

May 19, 2012 under Style

Wow!?  I found it online.  It looks like jeans and sneakers became one.  What a bizzare form of legwear.  It’s not leggings, definetely not tights.
They call it “shoe pants”.  The set was set by a 12 year old Willow Smith.

It looks like it either needs to stretch or be adjusted specifically to the person’s height, otherwise it will sag between the legs.

Anyway, I’d like to get one of those if I find it just for a new experience.
