In between all the long shifts and shenanigans that occur during the week, we all love to sit in front of our computers and get a good laugh from the latest videos trending on YouTube.
Now, ladies. How many times have you been hit on with the typical lines that are so inflated with Asian stereotypes it literally makes you want to shove a American history textbook down the guy’s throat.
Nearing 30,000 views, “How To Hit On An Asian Girl” by MarkY3K, is a video that explains what not to say when attempting to seduce an Asian American female. Finally, a hilarious “tongue in cheek” way to comment on an issue that definitely affects all the alluring yet fed-up Asian American ladies.
We’re all abuzz over Joseph Vincent’s new song, BumbleBee.
Vincent, who was first featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2010, has since established a more solid following of fans and supporters, encouraging him to launch the BumbleBee Cover Contest.
The contest encourages fans to record their own cover of “Bumblebee” with their unique style, and then post the video to YouTube. Sponsored by the Catch Adventures Staff, the contest will run from now until October 2. The five most viewed videos, along with five more videos hand-picked by Vincent, will move on to compete in two more elimination rounds.
The Bumble Bee winners will receive the very first Joseph Vincent RF3LIVE Earphones, along with a #TEAMJV T-shirt pack.
This is a snippet of Joseph’s original Bumblebee song:
Do you think you have what it takes to win?

Sigh…seems like fashion designers are not the only people Forever 21 is stealing from.
Singer-songwriter David Choi was surprised to find lyrics from his song, “That Girl,” embossed on a Forever 21 tee-shirt.
“I’m disappointed that Forever 21 [because I felt] like they didn’t have to ask permission to use my lyrics in their commercial product, but I’m also flattered at the same time,” the Youtube star told Audrey Magazine.
Well, those are good lyrics. Check out the music video for “That Girl” below and see if you can spot the stolen words.
Forever 21, when will you stop?! We also wonder, how does hearing about these copyright issues affect your impression of the fast fashion mega-brand? Let us know below!
How cool is this! 9 Hours is a Japanese hotel with a difference. The hotel creators have taken an entirely new approach to the capsule hotel industry, in step with the needs of a modern society streaming with business men and travelers on-the-go. Of course, after a tiring day and long day, these vagabonds need a resting place that is simple and hassle-free. Hence, a hotel with aesthetic qualities as simple and efficient as the service.

“I don’t know why I feel like I have to have sex with other people than you. … My kisses on your neck may not be exclusive, but they’re not random either.” – Kelly Zen- Yie Tsai
ISSUE: Spring 2011
STORY: Anna M. Park
With spoken word poet Kelly Zen- Yie Tsai, what you hear is pretty much what you get.
“If I was the center of everything for a day everything would be aimed towards, dictated by, catered to, tailored for 5-foot-2 tattooed Asian females.”
“I don’t know why I feel like I have to have sex with other people than you. … My kisses on your neck may not be exclusive, but they’re not random either.”
“When it comes down to … whether my heart, my uterus, my tax return and my generation is gonna be governed by your sorry self, I would like to say that I’m real. I’m here. I’m voting. And believe me this girl is yellow.”* Continue Reading »
Throughout the years, Asian Americans have yearned to see faces like theirs on the small screen. With Nickelodeon’s new show Supah Ninjas, the Asian American family is returning for the first time in 16 years as the star of a mainstream television series. While teen-oriented shows are saying they’re committed to diversity, do AA teens today really feel well-represented?
ISSUE: Spring 2011
STORY: Janice Jann
There’s a new family moving into TV-land this spring. The dad, a bumbling cop. The grandfather, a wise old man. And the son, a doe-eyed high-schooler named Mike who just wants to win over the girl of his dreams.
Check out the official trailer for director Wayne Wang‘s (The Joy Luck Club) Snow Flower and the Secret Fan featuring Li Bing Bing (The Forbidden Kingdom), Gianna Jun (My Sassy Girl), and Hugh Jackman.
Because Audrey Magazine is a small publication, we rely on the kindness of our many artsy friends and interns to contribute their talents to our team. And they’re so cool, they’re off creating other cool stuff when they’re not creating cool stuff for Audrey. Cool, huh? Here are where a few of our contributors are up to in their (limited) spare time.
Apparently sitting a few feet away from one of the biggest (and cutest!) Asian American YouTube stars (and by that I’m saying 130,000+ subscribers and 24,000,000+ upload views) wasn’t as intimidating as I thought it would be, at least not with Jason Chen. I mean, his latest video cover on “Never Say Never” got 50,000+ views in just one day. But still, it’s crazy to believe that I spent two hours eating Taiwanese desserts and chatting with the guy whose songs I put on repeat.
So before I tell you how the interview went over tea and boba drinks, (with two interruptions by fans wanting to take pictures), here’s a quick intro and some fun facts:
