shock the world tour

My PTXperience! :D

So you may or may not know that I actually met Pentatonix in Vienna. It was the best day of my life and I’m gonna recap it for you.

Let’s start from the very beginning; 

So I live in Hungary, Budapest and the concert was in Vienna, Austria which is the next country to us. Me and my mom went by train, the traveling took two hours, but we were sitting in the first class so it was really good. I was kinda nervous, because I don’t know any words in German (that’s not true, I’ve been studying it a year now)  and I was afraid I would get lost in the venue. 

We arrived to our hotel at noon, so we still had time. I tried to finish their gifts, because I only had two days to prepare for all of this madness. I wrote my letters to them, and didn’t even realize it was already three pm and I had to get ready.

Quickly I dressed up in something elegant (i’m fancy) completely forgetting the make-up, ‘cuz I had no time.

Anyways we arrived to the buliding, and there were some VIP fans sitting in the ground talking in German. 

I felt so alone.

Well for like one minute.

When I turned around my bestest friend in the entire world @lalatonix was walking towards me. I’ve known her since October, and we’ve never met. This was the first time we see each other closely and I WAS SO HAPPY. I hugged her like a teddy bear (she’s a giraffe).

Pentatonix really brings people together.

Anyway we went to the entrance, and we had to stand in two lines; one for soundcheck/private performance VIPs and the other for just M&G. Lala only had VIP for M&G, so we were separated. We were waiting for like 2 minutes now when a guy came out of the building with a paper, checking if we were on the list. When he was finished he introduced himself.

His name is Nathan and he is one of the managers. He told us that he started working with Pentatonix on the Kelly Clarkson tour, and he is such a pentaholic, he talked about how amazing the guys are and everything. HE WAS SO NICE.

He lead us into the venue and told us to wait for a bit. There were a merch store by us, so lot of the fans bought shirts and stuff. I didn’t have my money with me, I was screwed. Everyone was talking, nothing was happening.

When suddenly we hear a familiar tune… WE COULD HEAR THEM PRACTICING RADIOACTIVE.

My heart was beating so fast, I was freaking out. A girl was standing front of me smiling at me and mouthing the words. It was so interesting that we couldn’t understand each other’s languages, but when we looked at each other we thought the same thing. It was happening.

I started talking to this girl named Sasa, she’s from Slovenia and she was sooo nice. We got along really quickly.

After fifteen minutes we started moving to the stage.

The doors opened. Everyone started screaming. Here they were standing on the stage, looking sexy af.

I couldn’t believe it. I was like “this is not real”.

First of all let me tell you some things.

Kirstie is REALLY short. She’s like a little fairy and SO BEAUTIFUL. I was gaping at her like an idiot. Scott is really really fucking tall. Mitch was wearing his high heels! He has a higher voice in real life than what you hear in recordings. They sang ‘No’ and my ears almost started bleeding when he hit that high note. I could feel Avi’s notes in my chest, it was scary. 

After that came the Q&A. There were questions about Vienna and stuff. One girl asked Mitch how can he walk in those heels, it was funny. However what really made my day was this 7 year old little girl who wanted to ask a question, but she was too short and Scott didn’t see her. Two questions went by and the little girl was still holding her hands up so bravely, it was really cute. Avi was watching her and he cut in before Scott chose anybody else, and pointed at the girl saying “I want to know your question, little one!” It was so cute!!! Actually I didn’t really remember what she asked, it was all a blur. Sorry.

The photo op thingy was the next. We went a small room and it was so hot in there, that Nathan fanned us with a huge cardboard paper. He’s the nicest guy ever. He told us that due to the happenings on Friday (Rest in Peace Christina Grimmie) they had to hire a bodyguard for Pentatonix.

Yes. A bodyguard.

Well I saw the bodyguard and he was scary (and hot).

I was talking to Sasa blahblah, then I was the next in line. I put my bags down then run up to them saying hi. They said hi back (Mitch said it in two octaves higher). I stood between Scott and Mitch.

Scott has such a soft chest and shoulder! It was like a pillow xD

I was in shock so I didn’t say anything else, though I tried to act cool. At the same time I felt really safe between them. I know it sounds cliche, but I was so happy, I felt like nothing could hurt me in that moment.

Then the signing came. I went up to them, their gifts in my hand.

First was Avi. When I saw him, I instantly noticed that he was thin. Like fucking thin. He looked so fragile omg. Nevermind, I gave him is little notebook, He said it was cool, but I felt like he was kinda distracted. He almost forgot to sign my poster.

Next was Kirstin. I gave her little drawing she laughed and showed it to Scott which made my heart flutter in the weirdest ways.

(this was the front of the notebook)

Scott and Mitch had the same cover.

AND MITCH FUCKING GRASSI RECOGNIZED IT!!

He was like “I’ve seen this before!”

And I said in a squeaky voice “Really?”

He smiled at me and said “Yeah, on Twitter a week ago.”

I FELT LIKE I WAS GONNA FAINT. HOW? WHEN? WHAAAAT?!

I was smiling so much my cheeks started to hurt. 

Kevin LOVED my drawing!

I showed him that his shirt says ‘Swole Check’ and he started to laugh, and said it’s amazing.

I felt so loved. My heart was full.

So yeah this was my PTXperience, it’s not that special, but for me it was the most amazing day.,

This is what I drew inside the notebooks.

Thanks for reading it! 

And thank you so much @lalatonix for being with me the whole time, you’re a beautiful person inside and out. I love you! <3 <3

Woohyun’s breakdown at Infinite’s latest World Tour really shocked me. From all the members in Infinite, I’d have say that Woohyun would be the least one to have such a breakdown, because he was usually the most bright and cheerish one out of them. It made me worry, how long he must tried to keep his smile and successfully fuel us, that everything is alright. I also wonder, how many other idols are in the same state as him, always smiling but having deep problems in reality. I really, really hope our Namu comes back soon and whatever made him breaking down like that will be solved. Inspirits are here for you!

the sky turned black like a perfect storm…

Hey guys, Georgia here. After two weeks of pain and suffering, my tour outfit is finally done, just in time for 1989 MELBOURNE! [screams internally]

I’ll be riding solo at all three shows so please, please, PLEASE come say hi!!!

Night 1 and 3: Aisle 38, Row AA, Seat 328

Night 2: B2, Row E, Seat 23

Also I apologise in advance for my awful singing/screaming/sobbing.

See you soon x [passes out]

My Taylor Story:

Taylor Nation got in touch with me back in October for a chance to meet Taylor. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the event since I was learning in Israel for the year but they told me they would keep my name on a list for any future opportunities. When I went to Tay’s concert in July, I went to the Taylor Nation booth and told them my story. They said they remembered me and that they were glad to see that I was able to come to the concert. I was hoping they would invite me to Loft, but it turned out they didn’t have that night. Again, I felt like I just missed out on another opportunity. A few days after that concert, I asked my grandpa for a ticket to Tay’s concert in Columbus as a birthday present, which he was more than happy to give me. Ever since then, I was posting about how excited I was for the concert and I tweeted TN everyday in hope that Taylor herself or Taylor Nation would see. The day before the concert, I was in school when Taylor Nation DMed me on Twitter asking for my number. I was in so much shock that when I got the call from them, I couldn’t believe what they told me. They said they wanted to give me another chance to meet Taylor at her pre-show meet and greet!! Before they hung up, they told me I was not allowed to tell anyone until after I met her.
So the next day at the concert, I followed the instructions on where to go for the meet and greet. I met so many other amazing people who were also given the opportunity to meet Taylor. A man took us backstage to where Loft was. When we entered loft, we all stood in line and waited for our turn to meet tay who was behind a certain. When my time came, they opened the curtain and I enter a smaller room. And there she was. Tay had this huge smile on her face when she saw me and all I could do was run into her awaiting arms. When she pulled away, she told me how happy she was that we were finally able to meet after not being able to in October. I was so shocked that she knew about everything that happened in October that I asked her: You know who I am?? And she responded with: of course I do! You were in Israel this past year. Then I asked her if she was the one who pick me out for the event and she said yeah and explained how she went online and chose every person for the different events. And then without thinking I said: I love the fact that you stalk your people. She thought that was funny. I then thanked her for being like a mom to me and making me happy and helping me make the most incredible friends. I told her about Chana ( nailbiting-fangirl) and how we became friends when she overheard me talking about her. Then I reminded her that Chana was at one of the release week events and she told me to tell her she says hi. At this point, I was just so overwhelmed that I needed a hug again. So I hugged her and told her I loved her and she simply replied back that she loved me as well. When we pulled away again, she complimented my nails and showed me her blue chipped sparkly nails and explained that she’s horrible with painting nails. Then we took our picture and I made sure I was on her right (but she thought I switched to her right side because I liked how I looked on that side)! Then I said if she didn’t yet have a b-stage song she should sing Ours. She told me she would take it into consideration. I then told her I loved her again and left. The rest of the night consisted of me dancing and screaming and being in shock.

meeting taylor swift at loft 89 is a real thing that happened to me today.

Sometimes my life feels super surreal. Tonight was especially surreal.

Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour was AMAZING. Absolutely phenomenal. About a quarter of the way through the show Justin elbowed me and said, “LOOK! It’s Mama Swift!” Taylor Swift’s mom, Andrea, was walking down the aisle. She was taking some pictures with people who recognized her and so when she came near us, she took a selfie with the girl in the row in front of us.

I offered to take the picture for the girl but I don’t think she really heard me because it was so loud haha. But that must have been how Andrea noticed us because she pulled us to the side a little bit and leaned in and said, “Hey, have you met Taylor?”

And like, immediately, my brother and I both DIED. At every tour stop Taylor does she does a little gathering after called Loft 89. It’s basically this cute little place where she’ll walk around and chat with people and take pictures with fans.

There were over 20,000 people (probably more) at the concert tonight and only 20-30 people get to go to Loft 89. So obviously it wasn’t even in the realm of existence for me? And yet suddenly here was Taylor Swift’s own MOTHER putting a Loft 89 wristband on my wrist. 

After the show we all met at this portal and they took us over to this cute little room. It was all decorated and I counted 25 of us and there were some younger kids, some older fans, a group of teens wearing matching costumes, etc. 

So Taylor came into the room and we all cheered a little bit and then she basically circled around the room spending a couple minutes chatting with each group. It was surreal to be in the same room as her so when she walked over to me and just gave me a hug I didn’t even know what to think. 

She was SO kind. SO SO kind. She was genuinely interested in hearing who we were and the little stories about her music we all wanted to tell her. She told me she loved my outfit (”It’s totally like Red-era I love it.”) and I asked her, “So is it crazy to have these lyrics in your head and then suddenly have an entire arena of people singing them back to you in unison?” And she just went, “Oh my gosh yeah, absolutely. Out of like, everything I do, that’s what seriously never gets less crazy to me.” And she just laughed a lot and she really took the time to actually talk to us. She hugged me again, took a picture with us, and then hugged me again haha she was so adorable. 

The whole thing was so casual and natural, she just immediately put everyone she met at ease and just let everything flow. And honestly, tonight she performed with a cold and she could have totally just not done Loft 89 (I’m sure she was exHAUSTED) but she still did it anyway and took her time, she didn’t rush through it.

Honestly it was an absolutely amazing night and I feel SO lucky to have been able to meet someone I look up to so much and really just get to actually talk with her and laugh with her and really. It was so cool.

(Pics to come. Still in shock haha.)

Guys… Here’s a video my friend took of when fucking vic fuentes pulled me up on to the stage and sang bulletproof love to me. It was definitely an experience I’ll never forget and it was phenomenal to meet my hero and have him sing to me. I can’t thank Vic enough for selecting me, and I also can’t thank the rest of PTV and there crew enough for making this a possibility during their shows. Still in shock haha.

Harry Styles celebrates July 4th at Independence Day party in Malibu
Harry Styles, 21, celebrates July 4th at a red, white and blue party at Bootsy Bellows in Malibu, as he soaked up the atmosphere surrounded by an elite crowd of party-goers.

He’s a bit of all white! Harry Styles celebrates July 4th in style at star-studded bash in Malibu… amid claims he is set to pursue a movie career

By SARAH PACKER FOR MAILONLINE

He’s known for his love of going out and partying hard with an endless supply of female pals.

But Harry Styles, 21, looked relaxed as he soaked up the atmosphere at the Bootsy Bellows annual Red, White and Bootsy event at Nobu on Saturday.

The One Direction megastar joined an elite crowd at the party in Malibu to celebrate July 4th, as he dressed in accordance to the strict dress code wearing a white shirt and black sunglasses.

Harry wore a light weight white shirt for the sun drenched event, as he stayed cool in his stylish shades.

He embraced his naturally curly locks that hung down to his shoulders while chatting away to diverse crowd.

The pop-up party was held by Bootsy Bellows, the celebrity-favourite West Hollywood nightclub part-owned by David Arquette.  

He wasn’t the only star at the bash, with 17-year-old The Duff actress Bella Thorne also in attendance.

She cuddled up to her new boyfriend Gregg Sulkin, 23, as the pair put on an affectionate display.  

Bella - who was friends with Gregg for six years before romance blossomed - wore a white dress while Gregg opted for trousers and a top.

Meanwhile, Harry could be spending a lot more time in Los Angeles in the future after One Direction’s record company gave him permission to pursue a movie career.

The 21-year-old singer is reportedly keen to break into Hollywood and even has an agent, Nick Styne at CAA.

A source told Mirror.co.uk: ‘The agency has been told to start looking at offers. Getting him on board would pretty much guarantee a commercial success.’

And the news comes after Harry insisted One Direction are doing great since Zayn Malik’s shocking departure earlier this year.

Speaking about the band’s world tour - which is due to hit North America next - he said: 'The only changes [to the live shows] have been that the parts Zayn sang have been picked up by different people.

Other than that, the shows have been going absolutely great.

'It would be pretty devastating if we took that song [Story Of My Life] out. Liam [Payne] stepped up to do the high notes. He kicks them in the b******s every show. He doesn’t hold back. The other guys have picked up [Zayn’s] parts. We all know the songs well enough to do that.’

Since Zayn’s hasty departure, Harry, Liam, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have been working on material for their new album, with the star teasing a 'new identity’ for the group.

He added to Entertainment Weekly: 'We’re currently recording and writing our next album, so we’ll be working on that. The songs are coming together quickly, so we’re buzzing with the new stuff.

'It carries a slightly new identity, but I think it’s an obvious change from ['FOUR’] in a positive way. We’ve branched out and worked with different writers, and we’ve got some great songs!’

Justin Bieber slams his 'obnoxious' fans for screaming during his concerts

Justin Bieber is known for having a bit of a frosty relationship with his millions of fans, but this latest incident might just take the biscuit.

The 22-year-old pop brat is currently enjoying the UK leg of his ‘Purpose’ world tour, and shocked his excited supporters when he launched into a massive rant against them on stage at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham.

Yikes.

In recorded footage, Justin can be heard branding his fans “obnoxious” because they wouldn’t stop cheering for him, telling them: “Just try to show me you love me in a different way, I get it.

"The screaming is just so obnoxious.

"I get it, it’s been in our blood and it’s been grand, you go to a concert and scream and stuff.

"But if we could just scream after the song, enjoy the songs… The screaming is awesome, it’s fine, and then we take a chill pill for a second and we just listen  to me speak.

"Because I don’t feel like I’m being heard sometimes and it’s getting a little pressuring. So if when I’m speaking you guys could not scream at the top of your lungs. Is that cool with you guys?”

The comments didn’t go down well, with one fan called Amanda Boland telling Birmingham Mail newspaper that she found Justin’s remarks “disrespectful”.

Amanda - who travelled from Manchester for the show - complained: “I really felt as though Justin was disrespectful to his fans.

"Not so much us, more so the young girls who queued for a long time to be at the front. We recorded the fans screaming because we didn’t think we’d heard anything quite as loud at a concert before.

"And what we ended up recording, to our surprise, was Bieber complaining because his fans were 'like two feet away’, and they just 'needed to find another way to express themselves!’”

Justin also admitted to his fans that he is finding tour life “tough”, adding: “Like I was saying, I’ve been on tour for a while now. I’m away from my friends so it can be tough sometimes.

"I have all you beautiful people to keep me company.”

As long as they keep you company in absolute silence, eh Biebs?
