Beyoncé Named 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman by People Magazine

Sixteen-time Grammy Award winner Beyoncé was recently named People Magazine's World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012.

This singer tells People how motherhood makes her feel beautiful. On People.com, the singer is quoted as saying, "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."
The singer, who's known for hits like "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and "Irreplaceable," gave birth to baby Blue Ivy Carter on January 7. "The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she told People. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."

Other stars on the magazine's list are Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.  You can check out People's preview of their list online.

Singer and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez was named World's Most Beautiful Woman in 2011.

Mike Chan releases latest album

Mike Chan released his self-titled second full-length solo album under Heroes Records and Star Records yesterday at Tiendesitas, in Pasig City. His last effort, Dragona, the prequel to this album, reached as high as No. 4 on local sales charts. The rocker believes that this album could be his breakthrough work as a solo artist, and he credits his strong love for learning and making music as his source of inspiration for this album.

“In many ways I actually think of this as my first solo album,” says Mike. “This is the first time I’ve actually produced, written, co-wrote and personally had a hand in every song that went into the album. It took me a long time to get to this point and the journey getting here has been long and difficult most times. The funny thing is though...I loved every minute of it.”

Although a mainstay in the local music scene for four years now, Mike says his passion for making music has not waned despite the difficult and fickle nature of the music business.

Mike, who belongs to a prominent Chinese clan, acknowledges that hard work is a must to get somewhere in this business.

“The thing is” , shares Mike, “thanks to my parents I’ve had a pretty life. Doors were opened to me thanks to my family’s reputation and the education my parents paid for ensured that I would never be found wanting intellectually. In short, throughout most of my life I’ve had every advantage money can buy.”

“Success in the music industry however, is not something you can purchase or guarantee thru family connections,” Mike acknowledges. Which is why the singer is encouraging his followers to find their true passions in life. “If you have to work hard for something it might well be for something that you love doing. Life is too short and precious to settle just as opposed to really living!”

Mike hopes that his listeners will understand the real message behind this album. “This is not just about the songs in the disc. It’s about the passion and determination that went into the making and the production of these songs. It’s about believing in yourself and knowing that you are responsible for your own success or failure in life. It’s about creating your own luck and never giving up.”

Mike Chan performs at Tiendesitas every Tuesday until June, and at various SM Supermalls starting May 7 for his album promo tour. Mike Chan The Album is presented by My Phone, DJM Music, Shimmian Surgicenter Manila, Eventus Advertising, Game Club and Epipes.

"Somebody That I Used to Know"

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
I told myself that you were right for me,
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's to make us still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we felt that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn't have to cut me out
Think that love could never happen and that we were nothing
But I don't even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
And I feel so rough

No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect you records
And then change your number
Guess that I don't need that thou
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of moments that you screwed me over
But I may believe that it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna' live that way,
reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go,
and I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know-oh-oh

but you didn't have cut me out
think that love could never happen and that we were nothing (oh)
but I don't even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
and I feel so rough
No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect you records
And then change your number (oh)
Guess that I don't need that thou
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

somebody that I used to know
somebody (now your just somebody that I used to know)
that I used to know
somebody that I used to know
somebody (somebody)
that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
