The Macallan Masters of Photography: Elliott Erwitt’s The Great Scottish Adventure Comes to Asia

Many know The Macallan as a premium distiller of single malt whiskey and their whiskey for being the poison of James Bond’s choice in Skyfall (2012). Beyond whiskey though, The Macallan is also a fervent supporter of arts and photography. In this vein, we were one of the lucky few flown out by The Macallan, … Continue reading

We have Moved to the All-New Popspoken.com

Maybe, it’s time we re-introduce ourselves again. We set out to switch up the Popspoken.com site about a year ago and boy, are we pleased to see our dreams transform into reality.

Jonas Brothers: Why We Think They’re Splitting

Like all of you JoBro enthusiasts, we over here at PS are wondering… what the hell is going on with the Jonas Brothers? It all started when the boys cancelled their highly anticipated world tour, which offered pricey meet and greets and sold out venues all over the place. With such a good thing going- why … Continue reading

Reasons why you should catch Atomic Jaya

Since its salad days as a new play in 1998, Atomic Jaya has come a long way, entertaining crowds for over a decade. For those who are new to the play, its plot fundamentally orbits around what happens when Malaysia attempts to build an atomic bomb. Written and directed by Huzir Sulaiman, we have rounded … Continue reading

I Stalked Marina & The Diamonds: She Is As Cool As Ever #StalkerStories

Marina Diamandis better known under her stage name “Marina and the Diamonds” was in Singapore for a private concert this past weekend for a few incredibly lucky fans.

The Conscience List For Festivals

Festivals in Singapore are pretty conservative. Lost a shoe in the mosh pit? Got your iPhone’s recording obstructed by an iPad’s recording? The sun was too hot? Nothing compared to the situation at Glastonbury each year. With Camp Symmetry (headlined by Mew and Explosions in the Sky) kicking off our November, we have prepared a … Continue reading

$1,000: The Price VIPs Pay To Watch G-Dragon In Singapore

Imagine blowing that amount of money. That’s what 20 special (and probably extra cray-cray) fans will spend on VIP tickets to catch Korean rapper G-Dragon when he performs in Singapore this Saturday, 12 October, as part of Fide Fashion Week. He will perform a private showcase at 4.30pm at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre, Hall F, … Continue reading

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs…? If only.

Palatable at best, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is bland against its predecessor. For what the plot and characters lack in depth and flavour, it almost makes up for in vibrant and engaging (and at times overly exaggerated) animation, almost. Expect a few chuckles in this 95 minute movie, which arrives four years after its … Continue reading

Don’t like your job? Don’t Whine to Me About it, Gu Niang, Just Quit

You could always just “freelance”, if you’re self conscious about social stigma or just want a more high-sounding title, go with “independent contractor”.

Through the Never: Hollywood cashing out on the popularity of artistes’ drug-fueled impulse decisions

Metal is like vegemite- thick, heavy and unyielding. It divides the populace into those who hate it and those who worship it. They are both born of beer and aggression, and in the right situations, has the power to change your life. Combine the above two and you have the potential for a movie/concert of Wagnerian proportions, which proves itself in a head-spinning display of aural and visual assaults.

Miley Cyrus “BANGERZ” Album Review

Previously innocent Disney starlet Miley Cyrus has released her third solo effort “Bangerz” via a free stream on iTunes earlier today.

Up close and personal with Ming Bridges

She’s got no regrets tapping into her Chinese roots and venturing to unknown territories. (Unreal.) Ming Bridges is definitely bridging the gap between evolving as an artiste and still appealing to the masses. Read on to find out more about how dead on serious she is about her music.

Ming Bridges Is First From Singapore To Headline MTV Sessions

The spunky singer-songwriter dished out previous hits as well as new material from her upcoming English album.

The Doctor Will See You Now

Pangdemonium Productions took a huge gamble by taking on such a tragic and yet inspiring piece. So hit me on the back and scream jackpot because we’re pretty sure they pulled off Next To Normal almost flawlessly. Here’s the scene – a prototypical American family who at first appears to live a fairly normal life … Continue reading

STYLE ICONS FROM A TO Z: HOT CHIP

Who says being in style is only for the coverage of deeming good physical appearances? We beg to differ – it should be the acceptance of who oneself is, being comfortable in one’s skins & shoes and not afraid to stand out as sore thumbs in an ever-changing and yet still stereotypical-in-viewpoint kind of world. … Continue reading

The Maine Conquers Singapore, Fearless as Ever!

It is safe to say that every artiste wishes to be signed to a major record label. For The Maine, it is quite the opposite. They’ve even got the guts to tell their record label to f*** off. Now independent, or shall we say “indie”, the boys from The Maine has finally made it to … Continue reading
