Midweek Delight

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Party | Leave a comment

One of my favorite things about travelling to NYC, LA and London was its party-all-week-long attitude which is nowhere to be seen in Moscow. So here I am trying to make a change: tomorrow I’m organizing the first midweek party with some nice summery music, good cocktails and great location. See you at ‘Darling, I’ll Call You Later’ bar at B.Strochenovskiy, 7 at 8pm.

Interview Magazine

Back in June I started covering pop culture/fashion news for Interview Magazine Russia‘s website. This is me working on my very first piece in stunning Chamonix (my friend’s working at the hotel there so I had to come visit here during my eurotrip).

Crazy Stupid Fun Party

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Party | Leave a comment

Cheryl Cole’s ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ is my summer 2014′s jem: I’m watching the video every day since it came out and still haven’t even learned half of the dance routine (I’ll get there). So it’s an obvious inspiration behind my tomorrow’s party at Moscow’s ‘Borodach’ bar (Sretenka 27 bld 1). Be there at 23.30 and dance with me!

Mikey Party for ‘Open Access’

When the magazine you kicked off you career at asks you to write a piece about your own party… Well, it’s pretty hard to say no.

Kelsey Ellison Interview

Avril Lavigne may have cause a bit of a riot with her shockingly bad Japanese-inspired ‘Hello Kity’ video, but when it comes to doing justice to J-world, there’s hardly another firecracker like British YouTuber Kelsey Ellison. For years she made YouTube a much more kawaii place and now she’s ready to kick off a music career, too. Her debut single, Maya von Doll-penned ‘Pom Pom’, is a perfect introduction to what’s yet to come: it’s ridiculously catchy, fun and just the right amount of crazy. Obviously I had to find out what was going on behind-the-scenes on that video shoot and, as Kelsey put it herself, inside her ‘cartoon like brain’.

What’s the story of Kelsey?

I come from the land of the Jelly Shoes and the Spice Girls, A.K.A the nineties. I’m from the U.K and I grew up in a small town in South Yorkshire called Barnsley. My Dad has been in various bands and my Mum is a Musical Theatre lover, so I’ve been surrounded by music since a very young age. After I had an operation on my eye when I was three, I lost a lot of confidence, so my Mum took me to dancing classes, and I got a huge passion for it! When I got told in career advice at school that performing wasn’t really a real job, I decided I wanted to be a performer for a living.

Alison Fraser’s Tennessee Williams CD

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Music | Leave a comment

There’s something about my dear friend Alison Fraser. Something about her abilities to light up any room she walks into, to keep her glowing charisma onstage and behind-the-scenes and to make everyone around herself feel warmed and loved. And then there’s The voice. And that’s what I’m going to focus today as it’s the official release day of the two times Tony Award nominee’s latest CD entitled ‘Tennessee Williams: Words and Music’. The album follows Alison’s 2012’s one-woman show ‘Only a Paper Moon: A Tennessee Williams Songbook’, which saw her re-imagining songs and monologues from the various Williams plays with the help of the pianist Allison Leyton-Brown. So in case you missed the actual show (like I sadly did), the new album will surely bring that Broadway swank right into your home. Alison shifts from one character to another, taking on different accents, age and emotions while showcasing her impressive range . Filling the multi-genre collection of songs with her usual mix of elegance and flirtation, Alison once again proves that she is indeed a perfect Tennessee Williams lady. Trust me (and not the ‘The Party’s Over’ number): the party’s never over with this one.

Dancefloor empire: The rules of NYC nightlife

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Blog, Party, Travel | Leave a comment

It’s not the first and not even the second time I was asked to write an article about New York nightlife, but that’s just because it’s constantly evolving and every time I discover something new. This time around I wrote my analysis of NYC’s colorful party world for pretty awesome portal SVOY.ru which provides a legal way to listen to music and get all sorts of content (trust me: ‘legal’ and ‘Russia’ do not always mix well so this website is a big deal).

The most amazing part: Akira Rivz did a series of illustrations for my article – and I’m in love with those!

Anti-snow look for spring 2014

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Style | Leave a comment

It’s literally snowing in Moscow right now but having escaped most of the winter in the warm parts of the USA, I really cannot complain. Plus – it’s a perfect opportunity to rock my neon beanie from H&M and outrageous golden-lettered-sweatshirt from Forever21.

Cosmopolitan Russia: Katie Cassidy

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Cinema, Style | Leave a comment

If you ever met me for more than one second, you probably know that one of my biggest obsessions in life is 2009′s flop remake/sequel of ‘Melrose Place‘. While the show pretty basic, it had one huge success – fantastic Katie Cassidy as a bitch-with-a-golden-heart fashionista-publicist named Ella Simms. So obviously I couldn’t miss an opportunity to write a piece for Cosmopolitan Russia on Katie’s recent success as an actress (she’s the female lead on The CW’s ‘Arrow‘) and a fashion blogger – she co-owns a website TomboyKC.com

And obviously I was totally happy ‘and stuff’ when Katie re-tweeted my article. Katie, please talk to The CW – it’s about time to resurrect Melrose Place!

Here’s the article – in Russian.
