“When you’re vibrating purely, you get only what’s a match to that. It’s your ambivalence: “I like that but I don’t like that… I like that but I don’t like that…” that keeps what you like and what you don’t like coming at you all the time. You don’t have to “turn the other cheek” when you are in vibrational harmony only with what you want. Then, only what you want comes.” Abraham
Lady Gaga performs at TABLOID in Tokyo. A private live show for MAC Viva Glam
Getting only what we want seems like a very luscious trend of late and I say that only in the most love filled, joyous, light beaming way. I simply cannot express how grateful I am for all of the dazzling brightness and wonder that fills our lives.
Two nights ago we journeyed in style, as a fabulous family to a private Lady Gaga performance at TABLOID in Tokyo. The night was a whirlwind of color and excitement for all but the preparation with our beautiful Tokyo family was just as precious!
We kicked off the night by getting ready at the disco light lit FAB Dance Academy. Lapping up make up tips from two of Tokyo’s most fabulous make up artists and designers – Kike Yamakawa and Anthony Moynihan. Blessed to have their guidance. The studio was a whirl with costumes, colors, creativity and our big, bright family of stars. Such a fun process to get ready together, with Gaga remixes rocking on the sound system and glitter spraying everywhere. A few bottles of bubbly helped as well!
The Tokyo skies opened up as we stepped out onto the streets of Roppongi and into the huge, white limousine. Kike, thought it would be extra special if we rode in style to the party, he was right! The ride began, we cruised around Tokyo dancing to Lady Gaga and just enjoying time together. Everyone looked and felt fabulous.
Arriving at the venue, we stepped out of our white party vehicle to be greeted by a huge crowd of invited guests, video cameras and photographers. Fun times! Things got a little squishy but we were ushered in quickly to a venue filled with many celebrity faces and friends that I recognized. I was most excited to see other costumes, make up and the newly created venue!
The white walls of TABLOID made the colorful crowd stand out even more. We whisked our way through what seemed like tunnels to various rooms. Gorgeous boys with trays filled and ready kept the party flowing. We made our way into the main room where a small, circular stage was set up. Crowds hung from the balcony and we enjoyed the music and people around us while waiting for the lady herself. A great time to catch up with friends, take some cool pics and enjoy the spirit of the atmosphere, although Lady Gaga was later than expected.
But before too long the curtains rose and Gaga appeared in a full white lace body suit, with an intense yellow hair piece and her signature black lined eyes. As the stage rotated she sat at a white piano and sang Speechless. Next my favorite, Alejandro. The boys came to assist her as the beats kicked in the choreography amped up the performance. The crowd then went wild for Bad Romance. As glitter and white powered snow fell from the sky and covered the entire stage, Terence Koh melded into the performance with his voice and cape covered head. He was strapped to Lady Gaga and they made a cross with fluorescent lighting. The curtains descended and sakura petals fell. A short but as always magical Gaga performance by the unique and inspiring star.
Lady Gaga and entourage left the stage and the Dex Pistols kicked in. Time to party in the petal covered arena. I hooped it up and dance with friends. Photo shoot was a fabulous must, as we basked in the awesomeness that Lady Gaga offered and the joy that our colorful family brings to life!
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to such a spectacular night. A huge thank you to Kike for creating the most fabulous hoop costume for me. He had a dream about me as a Cyber Hoop Warrior and crafted the hot pink outfit for me. The man is a master of style and creativity, I am forever thankful.
Partying it up on Changefashion.net – awesome photos from the night!
