Justin Bieber Faces BAN From The Philippines After Dissing Manny Pacquiao

Pacquiao Bieber

Well the news has reached overseas!  Huffington Post and Telegraph both reported that Canadian pop star Justin Bieber is threatened with a ban from entering the Philippines after mocking People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao‘s recent devastating loss to Juan Manuel Marquez.  The Biebs posted ridiculing photos on his Instagram account, things that made us, Pinoys, pretty mad and disgusted with the pop star’s immature actions.

Justin Bieber may be on the receiving end of a knockout from the Philippines if he does not apologize for ridiculing the Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao.

Bieber was threatened with a ban from entering the Philippines after posting altered photos on his Instagram account making fun of Pacquiao’s loss to Juan Manuel Marquez, the Telegraph reported. Pacquiao lost to Marquez during a wildly anticipated match on Dec. 8 in a stunning sixth round knockout that left him face down on the canvas.

Bieber shared two mock images of Pacquiao, who is both a boxer and a politician, after the loss.

One image shows Pacquiao face down in the ring with a cartoon Simba from “The Lion King” nudging the boxer as he did his dead father, Mufasa, in the Disney film. “Dad wake up,” Bieber wrote. The other image features Pacquiao with Michael Jackson in his “Smooth Criminal” performance. “Pacquiao doing the lean with MJ.. Classic moment,” joked Bieber.

Bieber’s Pacquiao insult reached the Philippines Congress, of which Pacquiao is a member, who demanded an apology from the singer for his “distasteful comments … lest he be declared persona non grata,” according to Yahoo! Sports U.K. “Mr. Bieber should have known that the Hon. Pacquiao has reached his stature as such as a result of sheer hard work, determination and firm belief in God, and despite such stature best exemplifies humility and grace even in defeat.”

The Biebs responded with a challenge to all Filipino Beliebers and the Lawmakers with a strong sense of immaturity.

“If they were Beliebers I know they wouldn’t leave my side over [a] boxing opinion I have,”

Pacman released a statement saying that he would just pray for Bieber.  Personally (and thankfully) I am not a fan of Bieber and it would be nice if he gets the ban.  It would sound a little overreacting for the Pinoys, but hey, I want that douchebag in the making little kid to be taught a thing or two about giving RESPECT.  He does NOT in any way have the right to mock someone beyond his contemporaries.  But if he wants to, let’s have a little reality check:  how many belts did Pacman win?  Oh yeah, EIGHT.  Now answer me Bieber: how many Grammy Nominations do you have this year?  Peace.

Album Review: Chris Brown – Fortune

ImageDamn this guy creates an album like a speeding bullet train.  It was 2011 that seemed like yesterday when Chris Brown released his fifth studio album F.A.M.E. which created such monster hits like Yeah 3X, Look At Me Now, She Ain’t You, Beautiful People and Next To You featuring Justin Bieber.  Despite controversies and his volatile reputation, Chris Brown managed to remain commercially successful.  And now he releases a new album entitled Fortune, which picks up where F.A.M.E. left off musically.  Let us see if this album creates such fortune.

  1. Turn Up The Music – This song is too damn infectious!  What a way to start a hard-hitting party album!  I remembered when I first heard of this song, I think it was when he performed this on Good Morning America; I got hooked right away, downloaded the track and played on Repeat Mode.
  2. Bassline – Breezy’s on fire!  I could hear this song blasting on some hip-hop circuits around the world.  I just did not get what Bassline was he talking about (Girls like my / Bassline / Shake it to my / Bassline) Just kiddin.
  3. Till I Die featuring Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean – I know they’re high on this track, but I don’t care, this song’s tight.  I like the vibe, like Look At Me Now.
  4. Mirage featuring Nas – Again I love the vibe of this track.  Its gritty and dark, with a pretty nice hook and rap break by Nas.
  5. Don’t Judge Me – Intended to be a PR strategy for Chris Brown.  “Take me as I am / Not who I was / I promise I’ll be / The one that you trust.”    Sounded cheesy.  Having said that, the song sounded good.
  6. 2012 – It’s the end of the world and Chris Brown has only one thing in mind: SEX.  Damn.  Well that’s about it. Next track please.
  7. Biggest Fan – Another SEXual track.  Even if it actually sounded really great, I was just bothered with the lines of the song.  “You scream / I need / To pull your body closer / let me sex you babe / Girl you better not change your mind.”  What if the girl changes her mind?  Just a scary thought, thinking about Chris Brown past criminal records.
  8. Sweet Love – Yet another sensual track.  Man, Chris Brown just knows how to work it and bump and grind.  Reminiscent here is Silk’s 90’s track Freak Me.  I kind of like this throwback attempt.
  9. Strip featuring Kevin McCall – Pure R&B at its best.  It is so nice listening to this song!  Cool track.  In some of his past works, Auto Tunes sometimes cloud Chris Brown, forgetting that he is actually a really good singer.  The vocals on this track were pretty awesome.
  10. Stuck On Stupid – This is a pop ballad.  Though it sounded good, I just didn’t like it.
  11. 4 Years Old – It may sound too cheesy, but with lines like “It feels like I’m 4 years old all over again / Cuz I just keep running fast should be walkin’,” I couldn’t help but like this cool breeze of a song.
  12. Party Hard / Cadillac (Interlude) featuring Sevyn – When I saw the title, I thought this song is a hard, fast, body bumping dance anthem.  I was wrong.  This is actually another pop ballad.  This amazing track ends up with a doo-wop a capella with Sevyn that left me wanting more.
  13. Don’t Wake Me Up – One of his current singles, this song can go straight to the dance clubs, like his past dance hit Beautiful People.  But I guess they used too much Auto-tuning in this that he sounded like a drunk robot.
  14. Trumpet Lights featuring Sabrina Antoinett – Chris Brown is assisted by Sabrina Antoinett who sounded too much like, you guessed it, Rihanna.  This can actually be mistaken as a Rihanna song.  But this song is too ambitious.  It kinda worked though.

Final Thoughts:  Still a remarkable album, filled with a lot of potential dance hits and singles Chris Brown can add to his growing repertoire.

Songs to be put on your Playlist: Turn Up The Music, Bassline, Strip, Party Hard/ Cadillac, Don’t Wake Me Up

Grab album if you like: Jason DeRulo, David Guetta, Usher, Rihanna
