Lady Gaga's Life and Career......

Life and career
1986–2004: Early life

Lady Gaga was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in New York City on March 28, 1986, to an Italian American family, the eldest child of Joseph Germanotta, internet entrepreneur, and Cynthia (née Bissett) She learned to play piano from the age of four, went on to write her first piano ballad at 13 and began performing at open mike nights by age 14. At the age of 11, Gaga attended Convent of the Sacred Heart, a private Roman Catholic school on Manhattan's Upper East Side,[12][13] but has stressed that she does not come from a wealthy background, saying that her parents "both came from lower-class families, so we've worked for everything – my mother worked eight to eight out of the house, in telecommunications, and so did my father." An avid thespian in high school musicals, Gaga portrayed lead roles as Adelaide in Guys and Dolls and Philia in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. She described her academic life in high school as "very dedicated, very studious, very disciplined" but also "a bit insecure" as she told in an interview, "I used to get made fun of for being either too provocative or too eccentric, so I started to tone it down. I didn’t fit in, and I felt like a freak." Acquaintances dispute that she did not fit in school. "She had a core group of friends; she was a good student. She liked boys a lot, but singing was No. 1," recalled a former high school classmate. Referring to her "expressive, free spirit", Gaga told Elle magazine "I'm left-handed!"

At age 17, Gaga gained early admission to the New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and lived in a NYU dorm on 11th Street. There she studied music and improved her songwriting skills by composing essays and analytical papers focusing on topics such as art, religion, social issues and politics. Gaga felt that she was more creative than some of her classmates. "Once you learn how to think about art, you can teach yourself," she said. By the second semester of her sophomore year, she withdrew from the school to focus on her musical career. Her father agreed to pay her rent for a year, on the condition that she re-enroll for Tisch if she was unsuccessful. "I left my entire family, got the cheapest apartment I could find, and ate shit until somebody would listen," she said.
2005–07: Career beginnings

Gaga had initially signed with Def Jam Recordings at the age of 19, although she was dropped by the label after only three months. Shortly after, her former management company introduced her to songwriter and producer RedOne, whom they also managed. The first song she produced with RedOne was "Boys Boys Boys", a mash-up inspired by Mötley Crüe's "Girls, Girls, Girls" and AC/DC's "T.N.T." She moved into an apartment on the Lower East Side and recorded a couple of songs with hip-hop singer Grandmaster Melle Mel for an audio book accompanying the children's book The Portal in the Park by Cricket Casey. She also started the Stefani Germanotta Band with some friends from NYU. They recorded an EP of their ballads at a studio underneath a liquor store in New Jersey, becoming a local fixture at the downtown Lower East Side club scene. She began experimenting with drugs soon after, while performing at neo-burlesque shows. Her father did not understand the reason behind her drug intake and could not look at her for several months.Music producer Rob Fusari, who helped her write some of her earlier songs, compared some of her vocal harmonies to that of Freddie Mercury. Fusari helped create the moniker Gaga, after the Queen song "Radio Ga Ga". Gaga was in the process of trying to come up with a stage name when she received a text message from Fusari that read "Lady Gaga."He explained,

Every day, when Stef came to the studio, instead of saying hello, I would start singing 'Radio Ga Ga'. That was her entrance song. [Lady Gaga] was actually a glitch; I typed 'Radio Ga Ga' in a text and it did an autocorrect so somehow 'Radio' got changed to 'Lady'. She texted me back, "That's it." After that day, she was Lady Gaga. She’s like, "Don't ever call me Stefani again."

She was known thereafter as Lady Gaga. The New York Post, however, has reported that this story is incorrect, and that the name resulted from a marketing meeting. Throughout 2007, Gaga collaborated with performance artist Lady Starlight, who helped create her onstage fashions. The pair began playing gigs at downtown club venues like the Mercury Lounge, The Bitter End, and the Rockwood Music Hall, with their live performance art piece known as "Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue." Billed as "The Ultimate Pop Burlesque Rockshow", their act was a low-fi tribute to 1970s variety acts. In August 2007, Gaga and Starlight were invited to play at the American Lollapalooza music festival. The show was critically acclaimed, and their performance received positive reviews. Having initially focused on avant-garde electronic dance music, Gaga found her musical niche when she began to incorporate pop melodies and the glam rock of David Bowie and Queen into her music.

Fusari sent the songs he produced with Gaga to his friend, producer and record executive Vincent Herbert.Herbert was quick to sign her to his label Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope Records, upon its establishment in 2007. She credited Herbert as the man who discovered her, adding "I really feel like we made pop history, and we're gonna keep going". Having already served as an apprentice songwriter under an internship at Famous Music Publishing, which was later acquired by Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Gaga subsequently struck a music publishing deal with Sony/ATV. As a result, she was hired to write songs for Britney Spears and labelmates New Kids on the Block, Fergie, and the Pussycat Dolls. While Gaga was writing at Interscope, singer-songwriter Akon recognized her vocal abilities when she sang a reference vocal for one of his tracks in studio. He then convinced Interscope-Geffen-A&M Chairman and CEO Jimmy Iovine to form a joint deal by having her also sign with his own label Kon Live Distribution and later called her his "franchise player." Gaga continued her collaboration with RedOne in the studio for a week on her debut album, spawning the future singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face." She also joined the roster of Cherrytree Records, an Interscope imprint established by producer and songwriter Martin Kierszenbaum, after co-writing four songs with Kierszenbaum including the single "Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)."
2008–10: The Fame and The Fame Monster

By 2008, Gaga had relocated to Los Angeles, working closely with her record label to finalize her debut album The Fame. She combined different genres on the album, "from Def Leppard drums and hand claps to metal drums on urban tracks". The Fame received positive reviews from critics; according to the music review aggregation of Metacritic, it garnered an average score of 71/100.The album peaked at number one in Austria, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Ireland, and the top-five in Australia and the United States.[41][42] Worldwide, The Fame has sold over twelve million copies. Its lead single "Just Dance", topped the charts in six countries—Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States—and later received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording. The following single, "Poker Face", was an even greater success, reaching number-one in almost all major music markets in the world, including the United Kingdom and the United States. It won the award for Best Dance Recording at the 52nd Grammy Awards, over nominations for Song of the Year and Record of the Year. The Fame was nominated for Album of the Year; it won the Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album.Although her first concert tour happened as an opening act for fellow Interscope pop group, the reformed New Kids on the Block, she ultimately headlined her own concert tour, The Fame Ball Tour, which began on March 2009, and was critically appreciated.

Gaga at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards

The cover of the annual "Hot 100" issue of Rolling Stone in May 2009 featured a semi-nude Gaga wearing only strategically placed plastic bubbles. In the issue she said that while she was beginning her career in the New York club scene, she was romantically involved with a heavy metal drummer. She described their relationship and break-up, saying of it, "I was his Sandy, and he was my Danny [of Grease], and I just broke." He later became an inspiration behind some of the songs on The Fame. She was nominated for a total of nine awards at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, winning the award for "Best New Artist", while her single "Paparazzi" won two awards for "Best Art Direction" and "Best Special Effects." In October, Gaga received Billboard magazine's Rising Star of 2009 award. She attended the Human Rights Campaign's "National Dinner" the same month, before marching in the National Equality March in Washington, D.C. Gaga released The Fame Monster, a collection of eight songs that dealt with the darker side of fame as experienced by her over the course of 2008–2009, while travelling around the world and are expressed through a monster metaphor. Her second concert tour, The Monster Ball Tour, was announced in support of The Fame Monster and began in November 2009."Bad Romance" was released as the first single from the album and topped the charts in eighteen countries, while reaching the top-two in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. "Speechless", a song from The Fame Monster, was performed at The 2009 Royal Variety Performance where Gaga met and sang for Queen Elizabeth II.

Gaga was chosen as of one the "10 Most Fascinating People of 2009" by Barbara Walters during Walters' annual ABC News special. When interviewed by the journalist, the singer went to dismiss the claim that she is intersex as an urban legend, responding to a question on this issue by stating: "At first it was very strange and everyone sorta said, 'That's really quite a story!' But in a sense, I portray myself in a very androgynous way, and I love androgyny." In January 2010, she was named chief creative officer for a line of imaging products for Polaroid, stating that she will create fashion, technology and photography products. The second single from The Fame Monster, "Telephone", which features R&B singer Beyoncé, became her fourth UK number-one single. In March, Rob Fusari sued Gaga's production company Mermaid Music LLC, claiming that he was entitled to a 20% share of its earnings. Gaga's lawyer Charles Ortner described the agreement with Fusari as "unlawful" and declined to comment. In August, the New York Supreme Court dismissed the lawsuit. In April, it was reported that her music videos gained over one billion viral views, becoming one of the first artists to reach this milestone. Later that month, Gaga was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people of the year. While giving an interview to The Times, Gaga hinted at having Systemic lupus erythematosus, commonly referred to as lupus, which is a connective tissue disease. She later confirmed with Larry King that she does not have lupus but "the results were borderline positive". Gaga, with Elton John, is planning to release a duet called "Hello, Hello" for the soundtrack to the forthcoming animated Disney feature film Gnomeo and Juliet. In September 2010, Gaga signed a deal with Coty, Inc. to create a fragrance. It will be called "Monster" and is scheduled to launch in 2012.
2010–present: Born This Way By March 2010, in an interview with MTV United Kingdom, Gaga stated that she had begun work on her new studio album and already finished writing the core theme of it. Three months later, in an interview with Rolling Stone, she stated that her second studio album was finished. She remarked: "It came so quickly. I've been working on it for months, and I feel very strongly that it's finished right now. Some artists take years. I don't. I write music every day." She announced the title of the album, Born This Way, during her acceptance speech for Video of the Year at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. With already two tracks confirmed by Gaga, "Born This Way" and "You and I"—the latter she has been performing during The Monster Ball Tour—the album is scheduled for release in 2011.

Both Time magazine and Forbes included Gaga in its annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world and the 100 Most Powerful and Influential celebrities in the world, respectively.

Eminem - Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there's a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can't breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It's like I'm in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It's like I'm huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She fucking hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I'm leaving you
No you ain't
Come back
We're running right back
Here we go again
It's so insane
Cause when it's going good
It's going great
I'm Superman
With the wind in his bag
She's Lois Lane
But when it's bad
It's awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who's that dude
I don't even know his name
I laid hands on her
I'll never stoop so low again
I guess I don't know my own strength

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you're with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick
Of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit 'em
You push
Pull each other's hair
Scratch, claw, bit 'em
Throw 'em down

Pin 'em
So lost in the moments
When you're in 'em
It's the rage that took over
It controls you both
So they say it's best
To go your separate ways
Guess that they don't know ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It's a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin' over
But you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave
Out the window
Guess that's why they call it window pane

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn't mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper's just as bad
As mine is
You're the same as me
But when it comes to love
You're just as blinded
Baby please come back
It wasn't you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn't as crazy as it seems
Maybe that's what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed
I'll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I'm a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I'mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

2007 年 那是個遲來的夏天
Tahun 2007, itu musim panas yang datang agak lewat
Summer came late in the year 2007
改編國歌事件 讓我人生從此改變
Mengubah lagu negaraku membuatkan hidupan ku berubah
My life was forever changed with my national anthem song
透過網際網絡 我闖了禍
Melalui internet, aku menghadapi masalah
I got into trouble through the cyber space
但我堅持沒有犯錯 有人 說我叛國
Aku disalah fahami dan ada orang kata aku ni pengkhidnat negara
I was misunderstood and got accused of betraying my country
有人 想幹掉我 有人 說不讓我回國
Ada yang tak bagi aku balik ke Negara, ada yang ingin bunuh aku
My life was threaten and I even was told I cannot come home
要我磕頭認錯 政客趁機出頭
Saya dipaksa mengaku salah, orang kuat semua keluar menunjuk muka
I was pushed into the limelight by influential people trying to gain fame
媒體還配合炒作 世界 各地的記者call我
Pihak media dari seluruh dunia tak berhenti call saya
Media got into the action and suddenly international reporters started calling me
Aku mesti tabah

我的故事 被文學家 寫進了書
Kisah aku dicatat oleh penulis buku
My story was documented into a book
我的臉 還被人畫成了 卡通人物
Muka aku dilukis sebagai kartoon
My face even got drawn into cartoon characters
再多褒與貶 都已經事過境遷
Banyak pujiaan dan hinaan ku alami, tapi ia bukan segalanya
I wished that all the fame and criticism would die down some day
畢業後的我 決定勇敢面對誤解
Lepas ku tamatkan pengajian, aku membuat keputusan menghadapi semua salah faham
Upon graduation I decided to return to my beloved country
我用陸路 交通跨越六個國度
Ku menggunakan jalan darat dan melepasi 6 Negara untuk balik ke Negara cinta
With only land routes I walked across 6 countries to come home
拍攝紀錄 沿途上的驚險 和領悟

Pihak media tangkap gambar ku, ada temu duga dan aku juga dipanggil ke balai polis
I got called to police station and faced many media interviews
雖然 你們都把我 當成公眾人物

Believe me I am still who I am

有人說 我的作品荼毒青年思想
Ada orang marah hasil lagu ku mencemarkan fikiran remaja
People criticized my songs for poisoning the younger generation
有人說 我的頭腦都在胡思亂想
Ada orang mengata otak ku memikirkan perkara yang bukan-bukan
Some said my mind is full of dirty thoughts
說我亂講 說我是社會毒瘤發癢
Mengatakan aku ni merosakan moral masyarakat
That I have bad morel in the civil society
還怪我 變成他兒子的偶像
Ada juga yang mengalahkan ku jadi idola kepada anaknya
Some just blamed me for becoming his son’s idol
面對攻擊 我早就已經習慣
Aku dah biasa menghadapi semua halangan ini
I am used to faced difficult situations
保持沉默微笑 是我最好的答案
Menjadi keheningan sambil senyum adalah jawapan yang ku bagi
Keeping silent is my best defense and response
裝模作樣 從來就 不是我的強項
Aku tak suka menjadi kikuk depan orang
Putting a fake face is never an option for me
但我出門逛逛 卻要偽偽裝裝
Sekarang aku keluar, susah sangat boleh menjadi diri sendiri lagi
I can no longer be myself when I go out
我的email 每天都有人來 訴苦
Tiap-tiap hari aku terima email dari orang lain tuk mengeluh
People write to me pleading for help everyday
但我愛莫能助因為我不是 政府
Tapi aku tak berupaya kerana aku bukan pihak kerajaan
I just cannot do much because I am not the government
你們來我facebook 鼓勵我 詆毀我
Ada yang mendorong ku di facebook dan ada juga yang menghina ku
Some come to my Facebook supporting and slandering me
Aku tak delete komen-komen kerana ini adalah kebebasan bicara semua
I didn’t delete because it is their freedom of speech
我想要讓你聽見 讓你看見
Aku nak bagi kau dengar, aku nak bagi kau Nampak
I want you to listen and I want you to see
我想說的話 我的電影 和我的音樂
Apa yang ingin ku ucapkan, filem ku, dan muzik ku
The messages I convey through my voice, my film and my music
徘徊尺度邊緣 自由自在的暢所欲言
Adalah kebebasan bicara
Walking the fine line in freedom of speech
那是主流媒體 永遠看不到的世界
Inilah tempat yang tidak boleh diperjuangkan oleh mainstream media
Which is something the mainstream media can never understand
我站在不 同的的角度我不會停下腳步
Aku memandang dunia dari pelbagai sudut dan tidak akan berhentikan langkahku
I stand from a different point and I will not stop
這條思路 是老天送給我的禮物
Jalan pemikiran saya adalah hadiah khas dari tuhan
This path is a gift from god
你說我糊塗 你甚至想要把我說服
Kau mengatakan aku bingung, malah kau ingin menyakinkan ku dengan ayatmu
You claimed that I am lost and want to brainwash me
對不起我 還是我那就是我的態度
Minta maaf, aku tetap aku. Inilah sikap ku
Sorry, I am still who I am, and this is my attitude
在Kuala Lumpur 開始了新的生活
Aku memulakan kehidupan baru di Kuala Lumpur
I am starting new life in Kuala Lumpur
這裡人潮洶湧 馬路坑坑洞洞
Terdapat ramai orang telah terkorban di jalan raya yang berlubang-lubang
It is crowded here and the roads are full of potholes
一不小心 我可能會在這裡失控
Saya rasa ku juga mungkin akan hilang control di sini
If I’m not careful things may just get out of control
這條路 很難走 但我已經 沒有回頭
Jalan ini agak sukar untuk berjalan, tetapi aku sudah tiada pilihan lain
The path is not easy but I do not have a choice anymore

(我還是我 我還是我)
(Aku tetap aku aku masih aku)
Because I am still who I am

我有我自己的夢 自己會走
Aku akan berusaha mencapai impian ku sendiri
I have my own dream and I will go for it
walaupun sunyi
Even it is a lone path
請原諒我的衝動 我會好好過
Maafkan impuls aku, aku akan hidup dengan baik-baik
Please forgive me for being impulsive, I will be fine
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am
我不怕暴雨狂風 將我淹沒
Aku tak takut hujan lebat membanjiri ku
I’m not afraid the obstacles cos it will not drown me
Aku tetap akan berusaha
I will keep moving forward
就算旅途再癲頗 我不能回頭
Wakaupun jalan ini agak sukar tapi aku tak akan putus asa
Even if it is a journey of no return I will not give up
(percayalah, aku tetap aku)
Believe me I am still who I am

Wee Meng Chee (Chinese: 黄明志; pinyin: Huáng​ Míng Zhì​​​​) or Namewee; (born 1983 in Muar, Johor) is a Malaysian Chinese of Hainanese descent. He is fondly and widely known under his alias nickname Namewee (a bilingual pun) because his name in Mandarin (Chinese: 明志; pinyin: Míng Zhì​​​​) sounds like the Mandarin word (Chinese: 名字; pinyin: míng​zi​​​​​) literally meaning "name".

Wee gained popularity after releasing a controversial song fused with the national anthem of Malaysia, Negaraku, which describes the state of the country and its government. In the following weeks, the song increasingly drew both praise and criticism from various quarters of Malaysian society. The song is viewed as ridiculing the national anthem is seen as something offensive to most Malays. While most of the Chinese and Indian counterparts being supportive of namewee . His fansite at Facebook currently has 432,415 of Fans.


Born and raised in the town of Muar, Johor, Malaysia; Wee was educated in SRJK Chung Hwa 1B and Chung Hwa High School. He is formerly an undergraduate student majoring in Mass Communication at Ming Chuan University, in Taoyuan, Taiwan ROC.

It was during his secondary school days that he composed the first of 500 songs in his life. Around the same time, Wee and a few good friends formed a band named "大娘乐队" and won several competitions.

In addition to studying abroad, Wee composes and performs hip hop music by using what the public classifies as kind of downstream approach and dirty words in various languages, releasing several songs with complementing music videos on YouTube. Among the songs released by Namewee include Muar's Mandarin (麻坡的华语) and Kawanku, a critical song directed at Malaysian Chinese and Malay people.

Despite the controversy surrounding Negarakuku, Wee released his first, self-titled album, 明志 Namewee, in Malaysia on September 3, 2007, The album was completed in May, and does not contain Negarakuku.

Wee's sudden rise to stardom is the result of his highly controversial piece - Negarakuku. Its Chinese title reads 我愛我的國家 Negarakuku (2007大馬觀光年主題曲) translated as "I Love My Country Negarakuku (Visit Malaysia 2007 Theme Song)".

The structure of the song consists of two major components: the rapping, which is exclusively composed and performed by Wee, and Malaysia's anthem, Negaraku, which is split into three segments between the rapping and sung out in groups of two or three verses. While the national anthem is fragmented and sung in an "R&B" tone, Wee had no intention of altering the melody and lyrics of the anthem, retaining the anthem's original theme and meaning. The arrangement used by Wee follows one of the iterations of the national anthem as the Malaysian government has altered the anthem three times previously. This form follows the original arrangement of the anthem prior to the first change by the Government of Malaysia. The rap lyrics are uttered in Mandarin with occasional Hokkien passages and words, while verses of the national anthem are sung in their original, Malay form.

Negarakuku covers elements of daily lives in Malaysia from Wee's perspectives, including police corruption, inefficient public services and biased government policies. Two other portions of his song rudely points to Muslims' call for prayer and laid-back lifestyle of Malay people which mostly as the Muslims; one segment mentions the azaan to Fajr, the earliest of the five daily prayers by Muslims, described without culture and religious respect as a "morning call" that would wake the sleppy Wee up at 5 a.m. ("早上五点, 还有 morning call 会叫我起床"), as different mosques in the vicinity occasionally conduct the same azaan to the point they seemingly sing a "love song" in unison with voices that ululates in an R&B song ("有时几间一起唱, 听起来好像情歌对唱, 声音拗来拗去像唱 R&B 一样"). Two other verses describe people who "cover their heads" and walk slowly ("他们把头包起来, 慢慢走慢慢过马路"). In the beginning of the song, Wee dedicates the song to "all Malaysians, especially the Government." Nevertheless, the rap lyrics were intended to describe the situation in Malaysia from Wee's eyes ( who conveniently further his study in Taiwan), leaving listeners to determine on their own the right or wrong of any observation Wee raised in the song. H

A lower audio and video quality of the music video for the song was uploaded to YouTube by Wee on July 15, 2007, featuring a montage of photographs of Malaysia, a Visit Malaysia 2007 video and a video of Wee rapping against the backdrop of a Malaysian flag. The video ends depicting both a Chinese caption thanking unnamed parties for videos and images provided for the montage, and an English/Malay caption asking not to be sued as he has no money ("please don't sue me, saya takde duit"). The video was removed by Wee amid pressure on July 23, 2007, but copies of the video, including one with English and Malay subtitles of the song's Chinese lyrics, are still available on the site. The videos received an average of over 100,000 hits; a duplicate version of Wee's original video, uploaded in the middle of July 2007, received a total of 1.4 million hits as of early September 2007.

Public reaction towards the song is virtually split. Immediate reactions in the form of YouTube comments range from being mostly critic; fair agreement with Wee or support to him, few attacks and threats towards Wee, to racist remarks directed towards both Chinese people and Malay people in general. Official criticism of the song was primarily centered around the song's anti-government undertones, which resulted in comments by members of the Malaysian parliament to take action on him. However, as Wee was in a foreign country, he was out of Malaysia's jurisdiction.

Accusation of disrespect towards Islam and Malay people were brought up by Malay tabloid Harian Metro, claiming that Wee's song had mocked Islam and the mindset of Malay people. Wee disputes this claim by stating that the paper, as well as several Malaysian news channels, fail to objectively report facts, resulting in misunderstandings of his song. His comments were further directed at Metro, claiming that the paper did not understand the implicit meaning of his song's lyrics before concluding its nature. He added the paper had not provided any translations of the song, Mandarin and Hokkien not being widely used among the Malay-speaking community, resulting in their dependence on local media channels for interpretations of the song.

In an August 9, 2007 telephone interview from Taiwan, Wee clarified that the song was merely reflecting satirical social commentary of life in Malaysia as himself as a local Chinese, and added humorous remarks solely for the pleasure of the Chinese community. Wee posted a blog entry typed in both Malay and Traditional Chinese on August 12, in an attempt to clarify the nature of his song and its lyrics.

On August 14, 2007 (and later, on August 16 on his blog), Wee issued a public apology to the government and Malaysians who found it offensive. While the Malaysian Chinese Association accepted Wee's apology with Zainuddin Maidin, Malaysia's Minister of Information, urging Malaysians to do the same, the cabinet rejected Wee's apology; Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz added that "the law will take its course." Other actions voiced by the government include bringing Wee to court, probably under the Sedition Act, as he had insulted the symbol of the nation, and further action against YouTube.

On August 21, 2007 the Home Minister issued a gag order on all mainstream media to cease reporting on Wee. No major presses or television channels in Malaysia has covered Wee or Negarakuku since thereof.

Following his return to Malaysia in 2008 to celebrate National Day on August 31, Wee was summoned by the Royal Malaysian Police to attend a questioning on September 23. After the interview, Wee claimed that the police wanted to close the file on the matter and that he did not think that there would be any action taken against him. However, the police later stated Wee was being investigated under the Sedition Act and the matter would be referred to the Deputy Public Prosecutor.
Other Notable Works

A small controversy erupted when a three-parted video called "邱老師 ABC 時間", directed by Wee was released. In the video, a close friend of Wee, known as "邱老師" introduces the English alphabet from an adult-oriented perspective. It soon became notorious from its heavy use of profanity as well as orgasm sounds. Netizens turned against him, calling the video "pornographic" and "unrefined". However, the biggest backlash came when the board of directors of Chung Hwa High School decided to sue Wee, as the video was filmed in the school compound. Which the lawsuit is lifted afterwards . Most malaysian chinese and indian has been supportive of namewee because most of the time, the lyrics cover the elements of daily lives in Malaysia and the view of most of the chinese and indian on government and it is mostly straightforward ,direct but true in their perspective , while malay in the other hand , condemn namewee acts as an insult to them .

In July 2009, Namewee composed the theme and ending songs for the latest Singaporean film 'Where Got Ghost?' which was released on 13 August 2009.

He acted as the principal cast in "Potong Saga" and as the supporting cast in "Meter".

Namewee also made a video clip in the late of October 2009, entitled 'Namewee fuck TNB 停電了!黃明志大鬧國家能源局'.In the video, Namewee's house and Muar suffer a blackout at night, but the local TNB (Tenaga Nasional Berhad) branch office remains lit, and his brother would be sitting for the examinations the next day, so Wee went to TNB to look for answers, but the ensuing quarrel led the security guards to escort him out of the facility. After that, Wee scolded TNB and told them to 'go back to sleep'. The ending song is dedicated to attacking TNB, parodically insulting 'TNB' ('Tenaga Nasional Berhad') as "Tiu Nia Bu".

In May 2010, Wee made a music video which played by himself and his friends (include "邱老師"), to celebrate the 2010 FIFA World Cup by playing soccer with the women.

On August 26, 2010, Wee made a new music video posting on Youtube criticizing a school principal in Kulaijaya who was reported to have made racist remarks during a school assembly on August 12, 2010. The clip contained obscene language condemning the school principal and the Education Ministry. However, Wee was asked to give statement in Kuala Lumpur police station and also Cyberjaya Investigation Unit for two times later.

in October , Namewee has also been officially invited to attend the world famous Busan Film Festival in South Korea .

The latest music video made by Namewee is 'I AM WHO I AM' (我還是我).

Early life

Curtis Jackson III grew up in the South Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, in New York City. He grew up without a father and was raised by his mother, Sabrina, who gave birth to him at the age of fifteen. Sabrina, a cocaine dealer, raised Jackson until the age of twelve, when she was murdered in 1988. Twenty-seven at the time, she became unconscious after someone drugged her drink. She was then left for dead after the gas in her apartment was turned on and the windows shut closed. After her death, Jackson moved into his grandparents' house with his eight aunts and uncles. He recalls, "My grandmother told me, 'Your mother's not coming home. She's not gonna come back to pick you up. You're gonna stay with us now.' That's when I started adjusting to the streets a little bit".

Jackson's mug shot, August 23, 1994

Jackson began boxing around the age of eleven. At fourteen, a neighbor opened a boxing gym for local kids. "When I wasn't killing time in school, I was sparring in the gym or selling crack on the strip", he recalled. In the mid 1980s, he competed in the Junior Olympics as an amateur boxer. He recounts, "I was competitive in the ring and hip-hop is competitive too... I think rappers condition themselves like boxers, so they all kind of feel like they're the champ". At the age of twelve, Jackson began dealing narcotics when his grandparents thought he was at after-school programs. He also took guns and drug money to school. In the tenth grade, he was caught by metal detectors at Andrew Jackson High School. He later stated, "I was embarrassed that I got arrested like that... After I got arrested I stopped hiding it. I was telling my grandmother [openly], 'I sell drugs.'"

On June 29, 1994, Jackson was arrested for helping to sell four vials of cocaine to an undercover police officer. He was arrested again three weeks later when police searched his home and found heroin, ten ounces of crack cocaine, and a starter gun. He was sentenced to three to nine years in prison, but managed to serve six months in a shock incarceration boot camp where he earned his GED. Jackson said that he did not use cocaine himself, he only sold it. He adopted the nickname "50 Cent" as a metaphor for "change". The name was derived from Kelvin Martin, a 1980s Brooklyn robber known as "50 Cent". Jackson chose the name "because it says everything I want it to say. I'm the same kind of person 50 Cent was. I provide for myself by any means".
