Admiral P, Store P or ONKLP? Who is the Original P in Norwegian Music?

An ivestegatory video report about who is the Original P of Norwegian Music!

Since moving back to Norway after 4 years in Lebanon, a lot has happened on the music front. Before I had only heard about one P in Norwegian music and that was ONKLP. Nowadays we also have Admiral P and Store P (there is actually a guy called Tande P too but he has gone missing), so it is bit complicated to find out who is the Original P. We made a mini documentary to find out!

In this important mission I tried my best to not discriminate against age or not to ask to leading questions and after a few hours of investigations the Original P actually found me and clerified the whole situation about who is the Original P once and for all.

Here is a playlist of all the videos we made at Hove.

RAPPER ARIF READY TO DIE FOR THE MUSIC

– Catch the show tonight so he doesn’t have to

“We’ll be stage diving and shit, so hopefully I won’t break my knee or neck, I don’t want to die. Ok, If I could choose to die I’d rather die on stage then somewhere else…” Rapper Arif told 2famous.TV, as we discussed being a local superstar, what festivals like HOVE mean to Norwegian artists and what we should expect from his show tonight.

Yesterday, Dagbladet reported that ‘aspiring Norwegian artists were playing several songs with almost no audience in front of the stage before some of the passersby was lured by the sound.’

Arif will be playing on the Kasino stage tonight at 22:15. Be there to to catch the show…and the rapper. He’s too young and talented to die.

Check out our playlist from Hove here:

Norwegian Festival Fashion: Box-Fresh Look Even While Camping

Take a look at the festival fashion at Hove!

As a recent immigrant to Oslo I can’t help but notice the strong Norwegian sense of style. Everyone walks around as if just getting off a Banana Republic-meets-Free People photo shoot, rocking box-fresh threads and highly styled looks. Being one of the world’s richest countries influences how people dress and they definitely dress like they are rich and care how they look.

Between us there is a sharp visual contrast; I, with my decades old tees (that were made decades ago and cost $1), dilapidated shoes, my aversion to makeup concealer, and dark curly hair versus the Norwegian current-season outfit, long flowing golden locks, lots of face concealer, and really clean looking shoes.

But as I prepared to camp in the woods at Hove for six nights I imagined a sort of fashion overlap. My laid-back grungy style just might mix perfectly with the relaxed atmosphere of camping, I thought. I just might look like I fit in here especially among the teens since my part... [more]

MIA WAS M.I.A. A THROUGH THE FENCE INTERVIEW: EARL SWEATSHIRT

HOVE goes hardcore when L.A. rapper hits the stage

Earl Sweatshirt, who hails from my hometown adjacent city of Los Angeles (well, as you’ll see in the video, even if L.A. is the easiest point of reference on the international scene, if you grew up in the ‘burbs, never tell people who are actually from L.A. that you’re from there, because they will call your Orange County ass out so fast), shook the AMFI stage with some hard-as-fuck beats yesterday.

Small-scale hip hop shows are rarely good. When you’re just a guy with a mic and a DJ behind you, it’s hard to carry a show. It gets repetitive and boring unless you’re a fan or a live band is involved. When you’re a just a guy with a mic and a DJ behind you and you’re performing in front of a bunch of clueless drunken Scandi kids, it gets awkward. As I watched, I thought Earl was feeling the same way…that the audience was disconnected, despite his amped up performance.

As we tried to get backstage to interview MIA (I... [more]

THE BUSY TWIST YOU ALL MISSED OUT And...SO DID WE

As the 2famous crew sat on the beach, contemplating life and looking out onto the horizon, distant tribal beats were calling our names. We had to get to where ever that music was coming from. The 20-minute journey from the beach to the stage was playing was dramatic…we were walking fast in fear that The Busy Twist would finish their set and we would miss out on an epic dance party. There were distractions and pit stops along the way, but the music was still playing, so we were hopeful. Fuck, we’re almost there! One more corner and we made it! Hurry, hurry! And, in an ultra anti-climax, just as we turned the corner toward the stage the music stopped and we looked onto an completely empty dance floor. The huge dance party we imagined we were missing out on turned out to be a small crowd of 20 music lovers. It was as if we stepped into the twilight zone. What the fuck happened?

Horny Dudes, Awkward Dancers, and Huge Headliners The HOVE Festival Has it All!

We’ve made it our mission to see what party people around the world are up to at music festivals — from Lebanon to Nepal, but it has taken 2famous.TV until now to see how Norwegian youth party their summers away.

On days 1 and 2 of the 5-day fest we’ve run into extremely horny boys, pretty awkward dancers, and fans feverishly awaiting big headliners like MIA! Check out the video

Currently we are reporting from Hove Festival, Norway’s 5-day international music and camping extravaganza on an island off the country’s southern coast. It is by far the youngest crowd we have partied with but that only means their energy is higher than we’ve ever seen.

M.I.A., Bastille, Foster the People, the 1975, Ellie Goulding, Azaelia Banks, SBTRKT, and Bleachers are among the bands playing at 3 stages to a crowd of up to 53,000. Norwegian bands we’re looking forward to are Highasakite, Lars Valular, and Admiral P but th... [more]

I'm Taking Makeup To The Hospital When I Deliver- But Please Don't Judge Me!

Having a baby is rough, like rougher than that one time in college you got so drunk you passed out in a hallway at a stranger’s house and woke up with dried barf on yourself rough. Imagine that. Imagine squeezing a watermelon out of a lemon-sized opening, then let’s talk.

I’m not one for frivolity when I need to Get.Shit.Done. and makeup usually doesn’t make the cut for heavy duty activities, but I’ve got some reasoning behind my bringing makeup into the maternity ward. (Not that I plan on being a glamour puss the moment she pops out of my womb).

Pictures, people! Yes, indeed. The first photographs of mother and babe happen right there at the hospital. Family and visitors want to come and coo over your new bundle and congratulate you while blasting your face area with everlasting evidence of the auspicious occasion. And let’s just say I don’t do hi-def unless I’ve got some warpaint ready. Call me vain, but I just want to... [more]

Becoming European: I Love the World Cup!

-But Team USA is the best

I have been living in Norway for about four months now and it dawned on me that while I am very distinctly American over here, slowly but surely I am growing more into a European. Not EU European, Norway’s not part of the EU, I guess more like European Economic Area (EEA) European.

I watched every performance of this year’s Eurovision and regularly have to walk up to an hour just to get somewhere, but the biggest Europeanization is my unusual interest for the World Cup this year!

My admission may be revoked when I continue to still call it soccer, but I can’t believe how taken I am with watching a game, especially when my favorite team, the USA is playing. Yes, I know, traditionally my country isn’t the biggest supporter of the sport and you make fun of our football, but we can pretty much hold our own in soccer and we are proving it.

My knowledge has progressed rapidly: I’ve picked up on the rules and can spot an off-sides or p... [more]

Top 10 Weirdest Things That Occurred While Gestating (So Far)

How fast does time fly when I’m reading a stinking urine-soaked plastic device that tells me I’ve got one in the oven to 7 weeks till blast off?? I don’t know and it’s scary as fuck and confusing as fuck and people are freaking me out because they keep asking who’s coming to help us when she’s born. Resounding answer: NO ONE REALLY.

I can’t be worrying about that, I need to get back to losing sleep over whether the pink curtains I’m putting in her room are going to infect her tiny mound of mush brain with some archaic, color-coded sexist philosophy my gender has worked so hard to overcome. And moisturizing my nipples adequately.

But I digress…

1) I leak pee on myself. Like on the reg. Please give a nobel prize to person who invented panty liners…

When Ailin Kissed Lars A Documentary about Kindergarteners in Love

Does this tiny love story reveal the true nature of men and women in relationships?

[SPOILER ALERT: watch video first!]

Norway’s most popular publication, VG, published a short documentary featuring the tumultuous tale of kindergarteners in love. At the most basic level it’s super cute, but the story unravels to reveal the sad and awkward reality of male-female views on dating, no matter the age.

The story opens in the Spring with four-year-old Ailin and five-year-old Lars explaining their budding relationship at an Oslo kindergarten. It’s a love story like many others. Girl likes boy. Boy has no clue what’s going on. Another boy feins interest in girl. Boy suddenly realizes he must have girl. Boy makes girl his girlfriend. They are in love. They talk about moving in together.

Suddenly, fate’s cruel hand whisks the boy away. He’s a year older than Ailin and must start First grade, leaving her behind in kindergarten. She still thinks about Lars fondly but manages to snag a new boyfriend. Lars on the o... [more]
