Hi. My name is Alan and I am a Coulrophobic.Posted April 22nd, 2013 At 3:23 pm By MTV ASIA
Hi. My name is Alan and I am a Coulrophobic.
It was about 20 years ago. I was about 7 years old and my brother was around 10. You see, I was supposed to be in bed. Too young to stay up with my brother and his party guests. But all I wanted was to stay up with the big kids. Watch the scary movie they had been talking about all day. I’d been celebrating with the guys all day. It was my brother’s birthday, and we had pizza. And we had ice cream. And we had cake. And we even got to skateboard down the seemingly enormous hill that we NEVER got to ride down before. I was a part of the club throughout everything, until it came time for the scary movie. That’s where my mom the drew the line. (For the record, I think my dad wanted to let me watch it…) I was old. Only 3 years away from double digits… I could handle a scary movie, no problem! Or so I thought…Read more >>

Where Do I Begin?Posted April 12th, 2013 At 2:59 pm By MTV ASIA
To be perfectly honest? I have absolutely no idea where to begin… The last few months of my life have been a whirlwind of transformation and change. And it’s all happened so fast that my mind has barely had enough time to adjust. I just don’t think any of it has sunk in yet. I have to remind myself every day that I live in Singapore, almost 10,000 miles away from my home in California. I have an entirely new group of friends, a completely new life style, and of course, a brand new job. Cause now, I am an MTV VJ. (I can’t tell you how weird it feels to say that) And it’s all happened over the last two months. Quite possibly the craziest and most amazing two months of my entire life. I am incredibly lucky. But also? I’m incredibly overwhelmed.Read more >>
Future Music Festival Asia – DAY 2!Posted April 9th, 2013 At 2:00 pm By Hanli Hoefer
So carrying on my ramble about FMFA… Day 2! The festival grounds during the day honestly weren’t as pleasant as during the night before. It had just rained hard before the gates officially opened so the air was humid and stinky from the porter-potties. The crowd was definitely friendlier and younger. Instead of ravers, the grounds were swarmed with hipsters. We saw people with Mohican feather head-dresses, Aussie boys with themed get-ups, plenty of red lips, dark shades, clunky heels and high-waisted skirts and shorts.Read more >>
Happy Birthday Austin Mahone! We Celebrate With Austin Mahone #101.Posted April 4th, 2013 At 3:39 pm By MTV ASIA
Text and interview: Natalie Yeo
What better way to mark the 17th birthday of MTV’s PUSH artist of the month than to give “Mahomies” (Colloquial term for Austin’s fans) an insight to the life of Austin Mahone? We had the chance to speak with the young pop star prior to April’s MTV PUSH campaign launch and gained insight to his music influences, aspirations and even hidden secrets.
Having humble beginnings and starting out recording and uploading covers online with a friend as a hobby, Mahone shot to fame and broke into the music scene in 2011 when his online videos went viral. Almost two years later, he has released four singles including his debut single “11:11”, “Say Somethin” and “Heart In My Hand”, already performed for a Houston crowd of 70,000 people and is set to tour with Taylor Swift on her Red tour.Read more >>

Future Music Festival Asia – ASOT600Posted March 25th, 2013 At 4:30 pm By Hanli Hoefer
Read more >>
Where do I even begin… The last weekend in KL was the best 2 nights I’ve had in 2013 so far. Day One was A State of Trance 600 (600th performance) the ravers were out and partying hard. Everyone at work told me this, “Wait till you go to Malaysia, the fans and the people party like crazy!” they were extremely right. I got to interview Cosmic Gate – they are the tallest people I’ve ever met. I’m a tall girl and they managed to make me feel dwarfed (refer to photo below for the proof). Also one of the DJ’s Nick Chagall came from Germany from the same town my father is from, Krefeld! Small world.
CatfishPosted March 21st, 2013 At 5:05 pm By Hanli Hoefer
Until about a month ago I had no idea what “Catfish” meant in urban terms. Then Catfish: The TV Show premiered on MTV. I got curious and watched the Catfish The Documentary to find how it all started. Let me just recap what the term catfish is: Someone who pretends to be somebody they’re not through social media platforms like Facebook, and pursue and deceive others into romantic relationships online. Creepy, huh? We’ve all been told from a young age that the internet has a bunch of weirdos and you can never be too sure who you are talking to. I’ve always expected these stories to come from a public chat room or forum, not something so daily like Facebook! Catfish: The TV Show blows the lid on this twisted trend and reveals it all.Read more >>
A Glambert Kinda DayPosted March 13th, 2013 At 5:08 pm By Hanli Hoefer
What’s up interwebs!
So I was lucky enough to get to see Adam Lambert’s concert last Friday. It was really good! It’s undeniable that Glambert has amazing control and power with his voice, I was most impressed that he sounds exactly like he would on his album.

KL MayhemPosted March 9th, 2013 At 3:28 pm By Hanli Hoefer
So the last week I went to Kuala Lumpur to basically say HELLO to the media. It was insanely busy but at the same time exciting. I had probably 4-5 interviews a day, every hour. I also went to live radio and live morning TV! Let me just spiel about these two events.Read more >>
