The Real Marsha Ambrosius Soul Seeker Mother Matchmaker

first_img Facebook “I find soul in anything”Nyla showcases a dizzying list of musical influences, including, according to her, everything from Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye to Queen and Duran Duran. The album also covers a lot of historical ground, from the intoxicating modern soundscapes of “Bottle Fulla Liquor” to throwback soul on “Today,” which came naturally for Ambrosius.”Anything in three-four [time] just sounds like the right thing to,” she says of “Today.” “It floods out of you because it’s a natural element of soul that is in the body. It’s instilled in me.”Ambrosius also talks about the need for soul in our world, and how an open mind can manifest that soul through music. “It’s feeling. Especially currently, with the social climate, we music that just makes you feel,” she says, dismissing labels of her new album as simply R&B, pop or hip-hop. “Everyone’s like, ‘we need good soul!’ I’m like, ‘what’s soul, ultimately?’ I find soul in anything.””I feel like I’ve been a mother forever”As an artist who emotes, literally, for a living, becoming a mother has put Ambrosius in direct touch with the way music affects her daughter.”Music is the soundtrack, and my daughter’s already grasping what songs evoke certain emotions,” she says. “She’ll know what a sad song is, and she’ll know when it’s time to get up and dance, or she knows when it’s time to just chill. Having her learn emotions through music is a beautiful way to instill it.”This intrinsic connection between music and motherhood extends to her connection with Nyla.”I can hear my daughter down the hallway right now. I think there’s a spidey-sense or a radar that stays with you,” Ambrosius says. “It feels like even though she’s two [years-old], I’ve been a mother forever.” Unlocking life’s secrets of human connection and true love through music with the sultry soul producer/singer/songwriter Nate HertweckGRAMMYs Feb 4, 2019 – 4:04 pm Masha Ambrosius exudes realness from the moment she walks into the Clive Davis Theatre at the GRAMMY Museum in downtown Los Angeles. As an artist known for her authenticity, this genuineness has always followed her, but now, not only is she an eight-time GRAMMY nominee, she’s a mother. And her art and life have intertwined so inextricably that her latest album and her two-year-old daughter share a name: Nyla.”This is my life now,” she says, laughing, referring to the fanny-pack baby bag she’s removing from around her waist before sitting down for the interview. “Everyone’s like, ‘What’s changed for you?’ This.”The album Nyla ushered in a new phase of the multi-talented music maker’s career. Boasting an impressive resume filled with dream-come-true moments like writing and vocal producing Michael Jackson’s “Butterflies” and working with Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Dr. Dre, a successful career with poetic neo-soul duo Floetry, and now three albums into an explorative solo career, Ambrosius’ resume continues to expand. But as she moves further away from where she started in Liverpool, England, here are a few ways how she’s moving closer to herself, closer to her real. Twitter News “I just want everyone to be in love”Looking for a love connection? Just grab a ticket from Ambrosius’ next show.”I’m all for opportunity, and music does that,” she says. “During my tour right now, I encourage the audiences to raise their hands… [I ask] who came here single? Who would come to a Marsha Ambrosius concert single to hear ‘Your Hands,’ ‘Say Yes,’… ‘Freak In Me’… absolutely a bundle of sexual joy, and not wanna [say to someone] ‘hey, can I take your number? Can I take you out on a date?’ So I’m like, ‘Look around the room. There it is. I’ve presented you an opportunity.'”Ambrosius speaks from experience, as she met her husband on tour. He was a roadie for the Floetry reunion tour, and she seized the moment. Not only is she passing along the opportunity as matchmaker, she feels a deeper connection to her lyrics now, having lived real love first hand.”I feel corny, because I’m like… ‘I just want everyone to be in love like I’m in love.’ And now that I’ve found what [being in love] actually is, it’s way more incredible than I could have attempted to word in any song,” she explains, “because I was lending from what I thought it was until it happened to me, and now it’s the most amazingly terrifyingly gratifying experience I’ve ever had.””You can get rich so easily and get broke twice as fast”After our one-on-one interview, Ambrosius speaks with a large group of high school students at the GRAMMY Museum, providing valuable insight on her career and life in general. Her parting advice for the group is as encouraging as it was cautionary, letting the young people in attendance know they should not be pursue becoming lesser versions of their heroes, but the best version of themselves—and it doesn’t happen alone.”You can get rich so easily and get broke twice as fast. To be wealthy is a whole other animal,” Ambrosius says, later adding wisely, “Find your tribe and stick to it.”Diana Ross Set To Perform At The 2019 GRAMMYsRead more Marsha Ambrosius On Soul, Motherhood & Matchmaking real-marsha-ambrosius-soul-seeker-mother-matchmaker The Real Marsha Ambrosius: Soul Seeker, Mother & Matchmaker Email last_img read more

Four charged over Panama Papers scam

first_imgThe US government announced charges Tuesday against four men it said laundered money and arranged tax avoidance schemes through the Panama firm at the centre of the “Panama Papers” scandal.The four were affiliated with Mossack Fonseca, the law firm that helped thousands of clients around the world move money offshore to protect it from taxes.Named in the 11-count indictment were Ramses Owens, 50, Dirk Brauer, 54; Richard Gaffey, and Harald Joachim Von Der Goltz, 81.Owens is a Panamanian attorney who worked for Mossack Fonseca. Brauer, a German national, was an investment manager for Mossfon Asset Management, which was closely affiliated to Mossack Fonseca, the Justice Department said.Both were accused of marketing, creating and managing anonymously-owned shell companies on behalf of clients seeking to conceal assets from US tax authorities.Gaffey was a US accountant who allegedly helped Americans set up accounts with Mossack Fonseca, and Von Der Goltz, a German national who lived in the United States, was assisted by Gaffey and Owens in setting up offshore shell companies to hide assets, according to the charges.Prosecutors said Brauer was arrested in Paris on 15 November, Van Der Goltz was arrested in London on Monday, and Gaffey was arrested in Boston Tuesday.Owens remains at large.Mossack Fonseca’s operation was exposed in 2016 by reporters coordinated by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which went through 11.5 million leaked files to discover that scores of world leaders, sports and entertainment stars and dozens of billionaires used the firm to hide their wealth.It implicated Iceland’s Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson and his wife; banks, companies and aides close to Russian President Vladimir Putin; families of Chinese President Xi Jinping and former British prime minister David Cameron; Middle East royals, and other international figures.”As alleged, these defendants went to extraordinary lengths to circumvent US tax laws in order to maintain their wealth and the wealth of their clients,” said Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman.”Now, their international tax scheme is over, and these defendants face years in prison for their crimes.”Last Thursday, German prosecutors raided Deutsche bank offices in Frankfurt in an probe of money laundering and tax evasion also linked to the revelations of the Panama Papers expose.last_img read more

These Are the Tech Myths That Many People Still Believe in

first_img The folks over at HighSpeedInternet.com took a deep dive on the “mythtakes” (get it?) in tech to see just what the general public really believes. To do so, they created a master list of well-known tech claptrap, as well as some that may have once been grounded in reality but is no longer true.To check them out, it surveyed “hundreds” of people in the U.S. to ask which of the major tech myths we believe. The top picks show just how far we have to go to manage expectations.The most-believed myth: that more megapixels in a digital camera make for an instantly better picture. Eighty-six percent of the respondents went for that one; marketing hype doesn’t help. But what really helps with a better photo is a bigger sensor inside the camera.Next, 52 percent of respondents believe that charging a phone overnight somehow harms the battery. That’s not true, and here are several other battery myths debunked. (Another: Don’t freeze your phone to extend battery life!) We also enlighten the 17 percent of people who think you have to run down your smartphone battery completely before you can charge it. Nope.The third biggest myth: Thirty-one percent believe that an airport X-ray will hurt the stored memory on their phone or laptop. This is a holdover from when people had film cameras, and the X-rays actually could damage the film. But they won’t bother a hard drive. A giant magnet could though, so make sure to keep your phone and PC out of the MRI machine when you’re getting a brain scan.The list goes on, with people thinking you can’t infect a Mac with malware and that overnight shutdown of a PC is a requirement. You should feel pretty superior if you don’t believe any of these.HSI went a little further and checked Google Trends to see what the most-googled tech questions are; and some are on its myth-list. Georgia residents apparently want to know whether baby monitors can be hacked — and that one is very true. But as for falseness, Californians search quite a bit to see whether they can charge their phones in the microwave: That’s a cruel prank gone mythical. Texans want to know whether their phones can listen in on them. Lots of states want to know about putting saturated devices in rice to dry them out — but you’d actually be better off using synthetic silica gel desiccant packets (save all that you get in packages for just such an emergency, or buy a bunch).
