No, Bruno Mars Didn't Change His Name To Hide His Latino Roots
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Bruno Mars is proud of his Puerto Rican roots, and he’s insulted anyone would think otherwise.  The singer, born Peter Hernandez, is the cover star for Latina magazine’s February issue and took the opportunity to respond to critics who think he changed his name to hide his Latino roots. “I’d love to clear that up in Latina magazine,” he said in the interview. “I never once said I changed my last name to hide the fact that I’m Puerto Rican. Why would I fucking say that? Who are you fooling? And why would anyone say that? That’s so insulting to me, to my family. That’s ridiculous. My last name is Hernandez. My father’s name is Pedrito Hernandez, and he’s a Puerto Rican pimp. There’s no denying that.” It was his father, a Jewish Puerto Rican percussionist from Brooklyn, who gave the singer his current artistic name. “My dad nicknamed me Bruno since I was 2 years old,” he told Latina magazine. “The real story is: I was going to go by ‘Bruno,’ one name. Mars just kind of came...

Keane Singer Tom Chaplin Makes Triumphant Solo Debut in America
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Releasing an album no longer guarantees success in an industry where platinum-selling singers face the same pressures as fledgling artists. Yet, when Keane frontman Tom Chaplin kicked off a 15-date North American tour in Atlanta this weekend to celebrate his solo debut, The Wave, he proved that talent and heart still matter as much as the numbers do. In a triumphant return to the U.S. after more than four years away, Chaplin raised the roof with a dozen new songs that showcased his stellar vocal abilities - and also shared stories about his recovery from drug addiction. Chaplin's 90-minute set at the Buckhead Theatre included favorites "Everybody's Changing" and "Bend and Break" from Keane's 2004 debut, Hopes and Fears, as well as the current single, "Still Waiting." The Wave's "Hardened Heart" and "Bring the Rain" (co-written by Chaplin and Max McElligott ) recalled the joyous rave-ups for which Keane is best known, while "The River" (penned with Aqualung) suggested a clearer pop d...

Julio And Enrique Iglesias, Two Moments In The Life Of Cuba / 14ymedio, Yoani Sanchez
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Enrique Iglesias in a file image with the Cuban group "Gente de Zona". (Networks) 14ymedio, Generation Y, Yoani Sanchez, Havana, 11 January 2017 -- My mother had a T-shirt with the face of the Spanish singer Julio Iglesias, bought in the informal market in the early eighties. At a meeting of the Union of Young Communists they warned her she could not continue to wear it. The author of La vida sigue igual (Life Remains the Same) had fallen into the blacklist of censorship and after that the garment languished in a drawer in our house. This January, almost four decades after that point in my childhood, Julio's son Enrique Iglesias has come to Cuba to film the music video for the single Súbeme la radio (Beam me up to the radio). A legion of fans is preparing to follow him to the locations where he will work alongside director Alejandro Pérez, musician Descemer Bueno and the Puerto Rican duo Zion and Lenox. Although the national media have handled Iglesias' visit with caution, ...
