Yes, this month I was featured on the magazine L’Officiel Brazil on the “Marcelanes” column by columnist Marcelo Ferrari aka Marcelona - one of the most known faces of Sao Paulo nightlife. “The Boy From Teresina” (me :D) headline explains a little bit about the movie/documentary “Gazelle, The Love Issue” by director Cesar Terranova that I am featured and which will be premiering in the Festival Mix Brazil in Sao Paulo on November 17th. Super cool !!

I can’t describe how much fun I had with artist Scooter LaForge in this Halloween in New York City. It was absolutely a blast.Together we were one of the artists featured at the MoMA PS1 party produced by Susanne Bartsch, and we won the costume contest. So much fun. I can’t really precisely describe our costumes, but it was a mix of eye balls meeting Salvador Dali, meeting Smurfs on acid, naked under sea but ready to cook…oh dear, so much was going on. Please check the video of us in action.

I stay out too late
Got nothing in my brain
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm

I go on too many dates [chuckle]
But I can’t make ‘em stay
At least that’s what people say, mmm-mmm
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm

But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind
Saying, “It’s gonna be alright.”

‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I never miss a beat
I’m lightning on my feet
And that’s what they don’t see, mmm-mmm
that’s what they don’t see, mmm-mmm

I’m dancing on my own (dancing on my own)
I make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go)
And that’s what they don’t know, mmm-mmm
that’s what they don’t know, mmm-mmm

But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop grooving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind
Saying, “It’s gonna be alright.”

‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Hey, hey, hey
Just think while you’ve been getting down and out about the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats of the world,
You could’ve been getting down to this sick beat.

My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like “Oh, my god!” but I’m just gonna shake.
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won’t you come on over, baby? We can shake, shake, shake

Yeah ohhh

‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate (haters gonna hate)
I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break (mmmm)
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake (and fake, and fake, and fake)
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off (you’ve got to),
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

w108 as in washington oliveTTo

capa_w108 wogazelle copy

It is not a secret to the people who are close to me that – among Marlene Dietrich, Marlon Brandon, my mother Marlene Araújo and actress Claudette Colbert – the Brazilian marketer Washington Olivetto has been one of my idols since I was very young. Washington Olivetto is chairman of WMcCann Brazil and chief creative officer of McCann Worldgroup for Latin America and Caribbean. WMcCann is a fusion of W/Brasil – former Washington’s agency – with MCCann Erickson, an American agency and one of the largest conglomerates in the world of advertising. So Mr. Olivetto is with no doubt an icon in the advertisement world.

 

Well, Washington was in New York City in the beginning of this month of October to receive his Clio Lifetime Achievement Award. Olivetto already won the Grand Prix Clio Awards for film category in 2001, with a commercial for the Brazilian magazine Época.

 

The creative team at the WMcCann Brazil prepared an amazing surprise for when he returned to Sao Paulo. Washington was given a giant book – as big as a table – with testimonials from friends about him. They asked 108 friends of Washington to describe him as if he was something else; each friend, depending on its particularity, answered what would be Washington if he were a song, a restaurant, a Rio street, a joke and so on. I was extremely honored to be thought of as a friend, so I was given by them the question to describe Washington Olivetto as a ” FANTASY “.

 

This is the second time I am part of a personal project of his. Many years ago, my first encounter with Washington Olivettto on a first class cabin on a flight from New York to Sao Paulo resulted on me being featured in his 2008 book ” O Primeiro A Gente Nunca Esquece ” which can be translated at “The First One, We Never Forget”‘; the title of his very famous bra commercial in Brazil . All I can say, is that I was very happy to be included in the giant unique book given to Washington Olivetto featuring people like Lulu Santos, Andre Midani, Jose Bonifacio de Oliveira Sobrinho (o Boni), Maria Bethania among many other people who are in the POP scene of Brazil and who are his friends. Thank you WMcCann Brazil !! Well…is that really such a thing like third time’s a charm? :D

WMcCann Brazil: If Washington Olivetto were a “fantasy”, what would it be?

 Gazelle: Washington would be the other side of Alice’s mirror. Because this ‘other side’ is like Olivetto’s mind; where all is possible thanks to the power of his boundless imagination that uses fantasy and reality to shows us the way to the truth always full of wonders.
