Amy Winehouse Biography :

The niece of professional jazz musicians from her mother’s side, music surely was never an alien thing to the girl. She grew up listening to a diverse tunes ranging from Sarah Vaughn to Salt-N-Pepa. At age ten, she even confidently formed a short-lived amateur rap group named Sweet ‘n’ Sour in which she used the latter moniker during the troupe’s existence.

Though her abundant love for music was certainly unquestionable at that time, Amy, however, still gave herself a chance to try for another field as she later entered the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone by age twelve.

Nevertheless, the classes were unable to capture her interest and within the following year, she was expelled for “not applying herself”, leading her to attend Britain’s only free performing arts and technology institution the BRIT School. The movement thankfully proved well …

Biography and Career :

Her family is of Irish, German, and Native American (Cherokee) descent. She attended Princeton High School for four years in Sharonville, a suburb of Cincinnati.

She is not related to adult film actress Tera Patrick, who's birth name is Linda Hopkins Shapiro.

She lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota and worked for Target Corporation , before moving to Los Angeles in 1991. After moving to California she met the singer Prince (a Minneapolis native), who persuaded her to change her name to Carmen Electra. Soon after, she signed a recording contract with Paisley Park Records, Prince's company, marking the start of a short-lived singing career.

In 1995, before moving to Los Angeles in 1991, started appearing in various television programs. Then in May of 1996 she appeared in Playboy magazine. This led to an increasing role as a television personality on various shows, including regular roles on Baywatch and MTV's Singled Out.

She has appeared in several films, such as Good Burger (1997), The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human (1999), the horror spoof Scary Movie (2000), and the remake of the 1970s TV show Starsky & Hutch (2004).

She also regularly performed with the exotic dance troupe The Pussycat Dolls. She also created the highly successful Carmen Electra Aerobic Striptease series of DVDs which combines classic stripping moves with a low impact workout.

Carmen Electra's most recent movie appearance is as Eugene Levy's trophy wife in Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Her acting work is regularly derided by critics; in the Roger Ebert review of the film Dirty Love, he states: "The Carmen Electra character, meanwhile, struts around like a ho in a bad music video, speaking black street talk as if she learned it phonetically, and pulling out a gun and holding it to a man's head because she thinks, obviously, that pulling guns on guys is expected of any authentic black woman. A scene like that would be insulting in any other movie; here it possibly distracts her from doing something even more debasing."

Biography

Horikita Maki was born the eldest of three girls on the 6th of October 1988 in Kiyose, Tokyo, Japan. She tends to be boyish during her
childhood days, like in middle school, she enjoyed playing basketball or baseball with her friends on holidays. While she was in junior high,
she preferred to play Dragon Ball with the boys more than playing with the girls. This was because with the girls, she couldn’t play the
princess the way she wanted in the princess make-believe games.




In her junior high years, she served as student council vice-president and vice-captain of the basketball club. She was also described as the
“Boss of 3-C” in a number various writings. This was in recognition of her status as class leader. As she became more active in the
entertainment industry, she put her club and council activities on hold. Being unable to meet her many commitments, she finally withdrew from
her school activities after much deliberation, concentrating plainly on her studies and career.
Later in 2003, Horikita started to model for various advertisements and star in TV dramas and films in supporting roles. She gained much
recognition from her back to back TV dramas, Densha Otoko and Nobuta wo Produce in 2005.



Her exemplary portrayal in Nobuta wo Produce as the shy Nobuko Kotani, bagged her a Best Supporting Actress award in a Japanese
award-giving body. On the other hand, the chemistry between her character, Nobuko, commonly called as Nobuta, and Kusano Akira, played
byJapanese male idol Yamashita Tomohisa, was recognized as well, leading both of them to star in another drama, Kurosagi, in which



Horikita bagged another Best Supporting Actress award from the same award-giving body.
She is very much into reading too, having served as a special judge in a children's literature contest on March 2007[3] where Japanese idol
Ueto Aya was the previous special judge from the said event. Horikita was also applauded by about 2,000 attendees of her movie's,
Argentine Hag, premiere screening after reading an excerpt from the original novel by Banana Yoshimoto[4].
Currently, Horikita is a well adored U-20 Japanese idol, constantly appearing as a cover girl in numerous teenage magazines.




Personality

Horikita Maki has been said to posses an independent character, one that refuses to lose under any circumstance. “Even in trifle playing
around, she can become dead serious," according to acquaintances (from FLASH EX 2006 January 30 Edition).
Maki also has neutral views regarding romance. One time, in a Gout Temps Nouveau episode, Esumi Makiko asked if seeing Yamashita




Tomohisa caused her heart to start racing. Maki answered, “My co-star is someone I work with and I cannot see him in any other light.” With
regards to marriage, this is her opinion, "If one is going to marry, financial freedom is also important.” (from CIRCUS)
