Iggy Azalea Breaks the Silence

What Iggy Azalea has managed to do in the last year is awesome when one considers where she came from. She has become a dominate form in rap, a name to be mentioned in many circles, but she has been met with lots of criticism. Now the rapper breaks her silence about all the controversy.

What Iggy has managed to do in a short time is become something of a target. She has been criticized by the veterans like Snoop Dogg and Eminem. She has managed to gain as many enemies as she has gained fans. This all has to do with her persona that some people call fake. When she raps she sounds one way; when she talks she sounds another way.

In many ways she has continued to stand strong against all of those that have hated her, but recently she has gone silent. She removed herself from social media altogether. Health Imagining suggested this made it easier to concentrate on a lot of different things like her music. She is trying to get away from all the negativity. She said that the social media world is just too brash.

John Textor and the Hologram

John Textor did not initially go through college and the early stages of his professional career in order to move into the entertainment business. However, after a few different steps, this is exactly what has happened. However, some people may not know his name. By looking further into what all he has done and the accomplishments he has made over the years, it is possible to see exactly what he has done and why it is so important in the work he has produced for the entire industry.

John Textor started his career as the co-founder of Wyndcrest Holdings. This firm worked as a private equity company that focused primarily on the Internet and telecommunications industry towards the end of the 90s. Now, during this time, he eventually moved on to become the chairman of Digital Domain, which he moved forward over the following decade or so. The company would work on the visual effects of movies throughout the industry, including some of the largest blockbusters of the time, including products of Real Steel, Transformers, Tron:Legacy, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and several others. In fact, his team ended up winning an Oscar for best Visual Effects for their work on the production of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Now, while John has worked a considerable amount over the last decade on film and production, in addition to him being listed as a producer for the movie Ender’s Game, it is his hologram work that has truly set him apart from the rest of the pack. In 2012, John and his team unleashed one of the first holograms to be featured in a live performance. On the Coachella Valley Music Festival’s stage along with Jay-Z, the team created a hologram of Tupac, John Textor brought the famous rapper who had been dead for nearly 20 years.

Since working on the Tupac hologram, John and his team have moved on to work with the creation of other celebrities. This includes the famous Billboard Music Awards ceremony in 2014 where his team brought back to life Michael Jackson. He is also working on holograms of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe.
