Yeah… I know, I know.
I was bummed myself, but clearly as you all can see a Rihanna Polaroid was not meant to be.
So no long intricate introductions on Rihanna and her musical repertoire but straight to the story it is.
Meet Miguel Jontel Pimentel also know as MIGUEL singer, songwriter , producer and the new prince of alternative R&B.
Did I mention Grammy Award winner? Yes. Miguel recently won a Grammy award for best R& B song and I predict this is just the beginning of an award stacking future.
I’m super stoked and extremely proud to have this artist (that way too many people are still sleeping on) featured on the blog.
Your eyes ain’t lying.
That hottie on those black & white Polaroids is indeed none other than Ciara Princess Harris, also known as CIARA aka ‘The First Lady Of Crunk’.
She is that type of artist you’ll probably never see in real life, never see in the flesh, never see in front of you.
It’s like Tom Cruise or Will Smith. Or Oprah for that matter. Or one of those Victoria Secret models. You look at them on a screen, and it’s almost as if they are not real, like they don’t really exist because you will probably never ever meet them in your lifetime.
Well. I was lucky enough to meet Ciara and have her as my first A Polaroid Story feature for 2013….
Time to do my A POLAROID STORY 2012 RECAP before it’s too late right?
Ow it’s already to damn late?
Oh well… my bad! :)
Let’s go back in time and see what happened in 2012 for this little blog.
Yup, that is indeed Ahmir Khalib Thompson staring slighty reluctant in my Polaroid lens, but more about that later.
It’s that time of the year again where we stand still with the things we have done and experienced the past year.
It’s also the time of the year where sweet carols and heartwarming stories are highly welcomed to enhance that fuzzy atmosphere the holidays evoke.
The question if I like Christmas is one I rather leave open for debate, but that doesn’t mean I can’t play along.
The (Polaroid) show must go on right?
Meet Cata.Pirata, visual artist and frontlady from SKIP & DIE a new afrofuturistic-tropibass band on the block ready to give bands like The Antwoord a run for their money.
Am I speaking in tongues? My bad. Let me be so kind to introduce you to Catarina Aimée Dahms, a very interesting lady hailing from South Africa who ended up in all the way in Amsterdam and teamed up with a Dutch producer called Jori Collignon to start SKIP & DIE.
Bet you didn’t saw this one coming did you?
Or maybe you did.
Well…I didn’t. That’s for sure.
So let’s cut to the chase and get straight to the story.
I was so happy when I found out that this little blog was in the running to be invited for the 19th edition of the MTV EMA’s. I have been a huge MTV fan all my life, I watched all their award shows and with every new show I wondered if I would ever be able to go to an award show like that.
I was a guest at the launch of a brand new series of the SOUND OF SAM show on Belgium’s national radio STUDIO BRUSSEL to talk about my very first A Polaroid Story Expo.
Sound of Sam is quite the interactive show, with live streaming, split screen interactivity, twitter feeds and a live broadcasting on the OP 12 channel.
This is a little visual recap from that night. ;)
