Diverse NYC female rock trio. A unique blend of indie pop rock. Hip hop, r&b beats meet hard rock guitars, moody bass lines combined with smart lyrics. Two singers with complimentary styles and lots of pop-sensibility.

Biography

A simple ad on Craigslist brought Telenovela Star (T*, T-star) together in Spring 2004. Their complex backgrounds and musical interests instantly clicked, creating a sound that immediately appealed to all three. They share a deep passion for merging genres Ð loud indie rock, hip/hop, r&b, and syncopated jazz rhythms, under catchy, smart, angry and at times sad melodies.

In December 2005 Telenovela Star released their first record, a self-titled EP. Within a few weeks of the release, the intense, upbeat track "Car Song" was selected as theme music for "Beyond the Break," a new drama on The N! channel about competitive female surfers. The show aired June 2006 and has continued into a 2nd season. The song was also included on "The N Soundtrack" released in Fall 2006.

Their current full-length release "Love, Lust, Sci-Fi & Monsters", is a wildly diverse follow-up to their EP. Check out the powerful 1st track "Fluff", the soulful "Vampire", and the party favorite "Sucker".

Lyrics

"Le Plum Deux"

Written By: by Telenovela Star

I want money.
Money for my friends & money for me.

It's not the first time that I've had such base and foolish thoughts.
My eyes seem to shine brighter when I focus on the things you give to me.

Why can't I feel alright without you?

I want money.
Smooth, and flat, and firmly in my hands. I want the good stuff. Buy me breasts, and love, and company.

Why can't I feel alright without you?

When I give you my money, I want to hear you say what I want you to, and act like you mean it baby, or I won't believe it.

"Car Song"

Written By: Telenovela Star

I thought it's safe, simply relate.
Lean to each way, feel death slow paced.
You know lies pay more than honesty.
New hope, so tall, once here's now gone.

Kicking dirt up to the sky, watch it fall right in your eyes.
Admit it -a little-you did it for the money.
The greener is on the other side of here.

Times like these, I miss my car.
Where's my wheels? I miss that car.
Dog bites, dog chews, forecast came true.
Your bones too late, I'm full anyway.

Kicking dirt up to the sky, watch it fall right in your eye.
Admit it-a little-you did it for the money.
The greener is on the other side of here.

Times like these, I miss my car.
Where's my wheels? I miss that car.
Lazy half-witt, stockfull of billshit...
you'll hate you more, than me, for sure.

Kicking dirt up to the sky, watch it fall right in your eye.
Admit it-a little-you did it for the money.
The greener is on the other side of here.

"A Plum"

Written By: by Telenovela Star

On a solitary stage, she is wrapped around a pole
Leg's are lovely fashion long, image pinned against the wall

She has lovers in the hall, climbing thousand cracks to ball
Waiting for her to call
Little red rides in her hood, wanting only to feel good
The wolf is coming in for a ride

Look look what I have and you can't refuse
There's a brown girl in the ring with you

Hey yeah, she looks like a sugar, and she's a plum
Hey yeah, she looks like a sugar, with a gun, stun gun

"Fluff"

Written By: Telenovela Star

"Cheese", baby, smile for the news, maybe get them to use something they can abuse.
Please take a picture of me, put me up on the screen. Make me famous in Queens.
So, did they get you to talk? Make you spill all you got? Make the ratings go up?
No. Get them out of my face, I've got nothing to say. Didn't happen that way.

They say " Dont stop I want fluff...If I could only get enough"

Wow! Did you see who that was? Join the fug gorillaz, they created a buzz.
Yea! Did you hear what they found? It was all over town! Yea, it sure got around.
Yea! I saw it all...I made the call, the press had a ball.
Hey! Save the story for me, I want something to read while I'm watching TV.

They say " Dont stop I want fluff...If I could only get enough"

It's on tonight, I'm telling you.
Your face in the shot of the Daily News.
They say " Dont stop I want fluff...If I could only get enough"

"Vampire"

Written By: Telenovela Star


Hey, I see why
death is your life
You wait to arrive at night when
you're so much more than I am,
cause you... Andrew

"Hells hill" spotlights
a "Twilight Zone" high
You wait to arrive at night when
you're so much more than I am

Your silence, I hear it. Your whisper, I feel it.
Tell me what you want, tell me right now.
Tell me what you want, cause its allright
Your promise, so tempting, my life neverending
(Your eyes beam like)
Tell me what you want, tell me right now,
Tell me what you want, cause its allright
(Blinding strobe lights)

Inside I still feel it, you look like you mean it
(Hey, life's been trite)
Tell me what you want, tell me right now,
(I'm hooked, your line)
Tell me what you want, cause its allright
(High tide, grave dive)
Right now....
(My heat, your ice)

Theres a vampire on my back,
( I feel like dying)
and there aint no turning back
(And you, you're more alive)
I never felt like this before
(I feel like dying)
and now I want it even more
(And you, you're...a vamp...)

Kisses for hiding the monster's conniving
Its you, you're a vampire.
Screaming and fighting, I'm pale from the biting
Its you, you're a vampire.
Screaming and fighting, your death so inviting
Its you, you're a vampire.

"Sucker"

Written By: Telenovela Star

I really hate you, really hate you, even though you hate to fuck.
I really hate you, really hate you, even though you kind of suck.
I really hate you, really hate you, even though you drink too much.
I really hate you, really hate you, even though you're hard to touch.

If you want to take me home, I'll give you anything for a chance
to put your hand in mine....or anywhere you like.

I really want you, really want to lay my head against your chest
I really want you, really want your conversations, its the best
I really want you, really want you to admit htat youre the one
I really want you, really want you, even though you're no damn fun

If you want to take me home, I'll give you anything for a chance
to put your hand in mine....or anywhere you like.

I really hate you, really hate your retro t-shirt collection
I really hate you, really hate your sexual orientation
I really hate you, things were fine, yea thing swere great
I really hate you, really wish we could still date

If you want to take me home, I'll give you anything for a chance
to put your hand in mine....or anywhere you like if you can spare the time
