    Up, up and away

    As someone gifted with magical powers who also refuses to grow up, or grow old for that matter, there’s something peculiar yet terribly exciting about an impish, flying little boy who finds himself in good company with scions of a wealthy English family getting sprinkled with some pixie dust, thinking happy thoughts, and finding the second star to the right and straight to Never Land. You probably know him as that guy in green tights wearing a pointed green hat and pointed green shoes, and having a pixie-fairy for a sidekick. But to the world and beyond, he is known as the iconic Peter Pan.

    Culled from the fantastical pages of our storied youth, Peter, along with Wendy, Jonathan, Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily and even the dastardly Captain Hook, are clearly products of literary children’s fiction. Yet there’s something about these characters and what they represent that titillates our collective imagination, young and old alike. Sure, there are the Lost Boys, the Indians, and the pirates who truncate their existence on a simple yo-ho. But nothing quite compares to the idea of a fictitious land where people can escape the real world, be child-like or childish even, and experience the zeal of pure adventure in the most unadulterated way possible.

    For Repertory Philippines’ big musical this year, they are partnering with the monolithic Stages Productions to make this incredible story of Peter Pan come to life, in no less than the expansive Meralco stage that will transform into Peter’s magical world — mermaids, flying and all. This is also the first time that Stages and Rep are co-producing the show. And they have enlisted some of Philippine theater’s hottest stars, including TV personality and singing sensation Sam Concepcion to don the famous tights in the title role. The STAR sits down with Sam on what it’s like to come from a family of thespians, his preparations for the role, and some happy thoughts to get by.

    Lady Gaga: ‘I got pinched in hallways and called a slut in high school’

    Lady Gaga has opened up about her high school years, admitting she was bullied and felt “worthless.”

    Speaking in The Guardian yesterday (May 14), the singer, who releases her second album ‘Born This Way’ a week tomorrow (May 23), said she believed her experiences in high school shaped the person she is today.

    She said: “I used to get picked on. I got thrown in a trash can on a street corner by some boys. I got profanity written all over my locker at school and all the others were nice and clean. I got pinched in the hallways and called a slut.”

    The singer said though that her experiences at high school shaped her. She said: “Those things in life that haunt you are just part of what you must through in order to become great.”

    She also said she believed her message was “self worship.” Asked about her devoted fanbase, she said: “It’s more self worship I think, not of me. I’m teaching people to worship themselves.”

    The Only News You Need to Know Today: Osborne threatens to cut Greek aid if they vote for Jedward

    Chancellor George Osborne is targeting Eurovision success by threatening to withhold financial aid from countries who don’t back UK entrants Blue, writes Crispin Fisher.

    During negotiations with Greece over a further bail out Osborne made it clear to the Greek finance minister that any further assistance would come with strings attached.

    Top of his list of demands was 12 points for British band Blue.

    Osborne’s tough stance has been warmly welcomed by Euro-sceptic MPs.

    And there have been calls for the Chancellor to send a similar message to the finance ministers in debt-ridden countries such as Portugal, Spain and Ireland.

    Singer and former Greek Euro MP Nana Mouskouri has hit out at Osborne for trying to play politics with Eurovision voting.

    Mouskouri said: “This is a song contest and should not be turned into a political football.

    “In Greece we vote according to the quality of the song in every case.

    “It just so happens Turkey are crap and that every man, woman and child in Cyprus is a musical genius.”
