Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender: Surprise Wedding?

Sea, sun and bridal gear. Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender married in Ibiza?

Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender married. Or at least this is what they seem to tell the famous “three clues” that make a test. The two actors, who have been dating since 2014, when they met on the La Light on the Oceans set, have given a sort of extensive demonstration of something very important to Ibiza in the weekend and which had been voicing for a long time.

The three clues refer to this: the first, as reported by the Daily Mail (and documented by the photos) is the fact that both at the weekend wore bridal gowns; the second is tied to the great amount of friends who gathered in Ibiza for a big party organized by the couple and the third is the number of paparazzi present.

So Alicia and Michael are officially husband and wife? We look forward to knowing it in the next few hours, or in the next few days. Certainly they are not the only ones who have chosen the way of marriage in great secrecy.

Spring Sound: the surprise edition ends!

With Grace Jones (Stainless), Riz Amhed Swet Shop Boys, powerful and political, and Haim, for all but classy (which in these days is not a bad thing)

So the Spring Sound is over.
There is still another day of parties and concerts around the city, but at the no-place par excellence that is the Parc of Forùm we will be back in a year,

with the excitement, the curiosity and the unbelief of ever.

Of this spring, we will surely remember the surprises: Backstage Palaces Backstage Concerts and DJs, 360 degree Arcade Fire show,

Mogwai’s touch and escape, and yesterday’s incredible pop festival of Haim sisters.

We will remember why, if they were still needed, confirm and reinforce the idea that Spring Sound is first of all an experiential festival.
A festival that has long been responsible for rules that are just his – just see what happens every time the bill is announced – and that moves according to

established logic over time.

Spring can be allowed to have as headliner bands that would not be headliners anywhere else. Every year there is at least one of these.

And now Primavera can also afford to play and not to announce people who in every other festival would shred on the poster with the task of releasing tickets.

With the 2017 edition, somehow, it is overtaken by the classical festivals model and is heading towards a

future where the concept of surprise that has changed forever the record market could have a significant impact even in the way they are perceived And organize

such reviews.
We’ll see.

Meanwhile, we already know that we will remember the incredible and timeless show of Grace Jones yesterday.

He climbed to the stage for sixty-eight years, practically naked and covered with body painting, and put a perfect pop show between an

allusion to cocaine and the other. Glam in the pure state.

And we will remember the sing along collectively during the Teenage Fanclub concert with

their three guitars and the public waving flags of Scotland while the Madridists present at the Forum suddenly unveiled after the Cup victory.

And then King Krule you see it and you ask where it is that pulls out that voice and that it first goes upstairs with a dj,

but then you get to a band – with so much sax – and a concert that already It was nice to become a – ehm – surprise.

To the point that having only seen the end of the Arcade Fire does not cause any regrets. Just as it does not make you regretful, you have chosen

to follow the live of Angel Olsen, which goes so far, but going ahead becomes more psychedelic

and conquers all song after song. A good way to recover from the disappointment of the re-founding Royal Trux and their garage rock escape.
The sound and the aptitude are those of all times, it is a shame that Jennifer Herrema could not do it anymore and it seemed to

Loredana Berté in her most problematic period.

The palm of the most fun concert of the day if they bring home the Swet Shop Boys by Riz Amhed.
Perhaps the most successful live rappove of the festival for power, public empathy and impact. A show of great political value

– recover the words with which they closed the concert – and that with news coming from London, but also with Turin’s panic-panic,

represents the here-and-now more than anything else Past those stages these days.

Head rocking up and down even for Skeptic who made the many Englishmen who filled the Forum Parc.
And then the Haim, what to say: I am a force of nature.
And you do not need to appreciate a kind of pop to understand it.
They are modern and contemporary although they sound like a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac set up by fans of E.L.O.
For all, but classy and in these times, it’s not really anything.
Their was a fast show: the singles of the new album and the hits of the previous album. Just.
A real party, I repeat!

In the new version it allows you to access all the photos and all videos stored on your account GoPro GoPro Plus.

Justin Bieber: his dream house that costs a fortune per night

The stars seem to be fixed with the houses, so that their dwellings are generally an ode to luxury and excess also hard to imagine. Justin Bieber is no exception, and his stay in New Zealand has not really spared no expense.

What Justin Bieber does not die of hunger is acclaimed, but the villa he rented in New Zealand is truly one of the most luxurious and excessive things that have ever been seen.

Justin Bieber flew to New Zealand where they expect new dates of Purpose Tour: obviously the singer needs a place to stay in these days of “away”, but if you think he rented a normal apartment or a quiet house you are totally out Street. Justin has in fact decided to rent one of the most luxurious residences of New Zealand, for the modest sum of $ 23.270 per night: at this price the star can enjoy a huge swimming pool, a tennis court and even a golf course. The house is part of the prestigious complex called The Lodge at The Hills, Queenstown: accommodation designed exclusively for VIP, which in high season can cost as much as USD 32 thousand per night (thank goodness Justin decided to go there in March …). The Lodge at The Hills is rented for a minimum of five nights, and includes a range of pampering for guests that are included in the price: a bottle of champagne upon arrival, a private chef, a night watchman, a selection of beers and characteristic fine wines of New Zealand and the access to the golf course and gym. The residence is located next to a forest, and the pool is surrounded by a large garden, while inside there are six suites, each decorated differently. The common areas were decorated with sculptures and artwork. Not a bad place to relax during Purpose Tour, although it will not be a bit ‘too much as a choice? What is certain is that, given the wealth of Justin Bieber (which would be about 260 million dollars), pay these amounts of money for him is not a problem at all.

Trip on the river and jump into the void
What Justin Bieber wants when he is away from home, you have a little ‘relaxation (goal virtually impossible since it is regularly attacked by fans). Arrived in New Zealand, the Canadian singer has tried to enjoy the beauty of the place and do some ‘tourists: so he took a ride on the Shotover River to admire its canyons and experience the thrill of bungee jumping, and the evening is Queenstown went to a bar to have some fun ‘before starting to work. At the local it gave a very funny scene to his fans, dancing shirtless with an old lady who seemed very appreciate Justin transportation.

Two tattoos in one month may be enough
The surprises do not end here: last month Justin Bieber has decided to decorate his body with two more tattoos, not really small: a bear on your chest and an eagle with spread wings on the stomach. A drastic choice (and painful) which shows how Justin Bieber does not intend to stop with tattoos. Most of the designs that are on his skin are of religious inspiration: how many of Justin’s fans know, the singer is very religious, so much to get to a small cross tattooed on his face, symbolizing his way to God.
