Marshmello Takes Off His Helmet At Award Show To Reveal Surprise Identity
It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! Wait! It’s marshmello?
The sugary, masked DJ has been able to confidently walk through crowds and play to hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, since the debut of the project in 2015. In that time, he’s woven his way through dance music as well as pop and has made quite a few connections with celebrity figures. The mask is part of his appeal as an artist, and it’s also allowed him to perform quite a few antics along the way.
Is Marshmello Tiësto? Possibly, based on what we saw at EDC. Is Marshmello Will Ferrell? Again, it could be, based on his show intros. Is Marshmello literally any EDM DJ ever? Once again, it’s in the realm of possibility, as we’ve seen on Instagram for the past 2 years.
But Marshmello just unveiled his newest true identity at the VMAs this past weekend: It’s Shawn Mendes!
This comes as a major surprise. And we have a feeling that some of the tweens in the crowd now legitimately believe that the saccharine treat’s “real identity” is Shawn Mendes… go figure. But we all know his real, true identity.
Check out the live reveal below.
Medasin Reveals Debut Album "Irene" Is Inspired By A Real Person In Tell-All Interview
We’re now a week out from the release of Medasin’s introspective and personal debut album Irene. The identity of this mysterious influence on the producer’s album remained elusive until yesterday, when he came clean to Billboard in a track-by-track interview of the album.
Our use of “came clean,” is no mistake either. Before Medasin was the producer and musician he is today, he was addicted to drugs and moving aimlessly through life. It was Irene, his outpatient program counselor at Access Counseling Group, her rehab facility in Plano, Texas, that brought him out of his downward spiral.
“The idea of Irene is essentially me elusively telling the story of where Medasin came from,” the producer writes. “Also, to convey the idea that simply sharing positivity and encouragement can actually set a huge thing into motion. Living in this way of sharing, healing and love can give birth to all kinds of shit, in my case, a music project. Irene might as well be considered a collaborator on this, because if I had not simply crossed paths with her, my progress wouldn’t have been set into motion.”
In recognition of Irene’s importance and effect on his life, Medasin has established a GoFundMe to help Irene reach her goal of owning a coffee shop to help out her patients. The purpose of this coffee shop would be to serve as a safe space for recovering drug addicts and alcoholics to hang out and stay out of trouble’s path; it would also help aid meeting other people recovering from addiction to provide a stronger network of sober friends to help carry them onto successful recovery and sobriety. He will also be donating a portion of his tour earning to help her realize her goal.
Donate here if you’re able, and listen to Irene below. Also, head to Billboard for a track-by-track review of the album.
"Family Guy" Addresses Stewie's Sexuality & Reveals His "True" Voice
Last night Fox aired a commercial-free episode Family Guy that sees Stewie Griffin, the show's most iconic character, engage in a therapy session with a shrink played by Ian McKellen. The episode aimed to debunk rampant mysteries surrounding the youngest Griffin family member, tackling his inexplicable British accent, as well as his sexuality.
The episode's scribe and series executive producer Gary Janetti reveals how "Stewie's awareness his sexuality is this uncertain thing, and that needs to stay as it is. His uncertainty gives him a vulnerability, which is something we need to maintain for the series. Whether he is gay] or not, that isn't going to be answered when he's a one-year-old. But if you read between the lines, it's not that difficult to decipher. He's not even sure ‘heterosexual' is a real word!"
Janetti also admits that "we also talked to creator Seth MacFarlane] whose opinion was to not lean into Stewie's sexuality] too much. He's still a baby. He doesn't know yet, and sexuality is a very fluid matter. It's better to keep that as something that's not determined yet."
Stewie's peculiar British accent was also discussed during last night's therapy session, with Janetti noting how the series never intended to address his vocal inflections in any meaningful manner. Instead, it opened up a chance for Seth MacFarlane to showcase the variety character voices he helms, with Sir Ian McKellen not being able to decipher a distinct difference between each different intonation.
"I liked the idea that being the reveal," Janetti admits. "It felt truthful that somebody who didn't feel like he fit in would create an artificial personality. To an extent, that's what he's done. And then to have Ian's character—the one person he's sharing this big secret with—not even hear the difference was another fun opportunity. It felt like a good way to show Stewie's insecurities in a way that felt truthful to the history the series."
Well, We Now Know The Identity of EDM's Newest Mystery Producer
There’s a lot – a lot – new music out today, so it’ll probably take more than just today to get through all it you were really that dedicated. However, one piece new music perhaps deserves a bit extra attention because it might be the answer to a mystery we’ve been trying to unravel.
In October last year, we asked the question, “” The mysterious and unknown producer made his or her debut with an ficial remix Marshmello’s “Silence,” so it had to be someone with connections, or perhaps an alias an already-known producer.
The latter theory seems to be the most likely, especially when considering a tweet from Ookay this morning.
Based on the early support SUMR CAMP from the Red Light Management team (both as a release itself and in reposts on Soundcloud), and this new tweet – plus heaps fan speculation – the conclusion that Ookay is SUMR CAMP seems logical.
Listen to SUMR CAMP’s new song “Words” below.
Marshmello Removed His Helmet To Reveal Something Absolutely No One Saw Coming [VIDEO]
Surprise! Fans thought they knew the real Marshmello — but in a surprising plot twist the true identity the mystery DJ has been revealed (and he’s definitely not Dotcom).
Last night’s show at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco brought the shocking announcement. Turns out the guy who has been blowing our minds with massive bass and high-octane shows has revealed himself as actor Will Ferrell.
Of course, this isn’t to be taken seriously because nothing involving Will Ferrell should be taken seriously.
Thankfully, the epic moment was captured on Instagram by Marshmello’s manager Moe Shalizi, so even Mello Gang who weren’t there to experience Marshmello’s revealing can relive it over and over again below. Anyone interested in Marshmello’s real self should , too.
