Thw best story about Wolf of Wall Street is that the chest-thump thing Matthew McConaughey does with Leonardo DiCaprio in the restaurant wasn’t even in the original script, it was just something Leo saw McConaughey doing by himself that he suggested should be in the movie. Check out this catchy remix!

“Hustling straight outta BNE by way of Canberra, Shock Mansion is leading a new generation of Australian street entrepreneurs right to the bank. With more tattoos than Fantasy Island, Jake Hollywood along with brothers Sean and Kieran Mansion have spread their radness far and wide, collaborating with brands such as Globe, Monster Energy and now Osiris. And that’s all off the back off their ever-growing online presence thanks to ShockMansion.com. We were so intrigued by the trio we had to find out more and get the down low on their newest triple pack of kicks due for release by Osiris later this year… welcome to Shock Mansion.” – Sneaker Freaker Magazine.

Shock Mansion: Thanks heaps for your time, how have you been?

Louella Deville: I’m good thank you. Feeling a little tired whilst recovering from my birthday celebrations last night, but I feel happy and quiet content at the moment.

Shock Mansion: Fill us in on Louella Deville, what do you do and how long have you been
doing it?

Louella Deville: Firstly I am a singer. I sing soul/blues/rockabilly/rnb. I’ve taken a little break from music but searching for people to join a band with at the moment. Along with singing, I write, and I do but not limited to pin up/alt/fetish modelling and performing. I’ve been singing since I was a wee one and modelling for almost 5 years now.

Hollywood Holt is known for his crazy but always fun live shows. Confident, charismatic, fun and energetic are words to describe Hollywood Holt, the Chicago based MC, break dancer and DJ.

Holt has toured with Kid Cudi, and his songs have been featured on video games such as Fight Night Round 4, and the television series Gossip Girl.

Influenced by a lot of punk music, Hollywood Holt, absorbed both the cultures of living in the Windy City’s notorious South Side as well as the city’s well-off, northern suburbs.

We’ve been blasting his music in the Shock Mansion office for a while now. So when we had the opportunity to catch up with him on the phone we were excited to say the least.

“I just want people to know that I’m a young guy trying to live out his dream and do everything possible to make that dream happen. I’m an average, regular guy from South London, but at the same time I want it all – and I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure that happens.”

Watch Tinie Tempah below performing Pass Out.

“I really want people to get this album, I want them to listen to it as a whole and see that not all the tracks are chart-driven. I really wanted to give people some ‘Tinie Time’ for an hour.”

Shock Mansion recently caught up with Bam Margera on the phone. The only problem was we weren’t prepared in the slightest and literally only knew 5 minutes beforehand that it was going to happen. In those crazy 5 minutes we managed to quickly finish throwing rocks at the bush turkey in our yard and then turn the office upside down trying to find our digital mp3 recorder.

None of us could remember where it was (Mental note to self: Chill out on the weed dude). We did however find a dusty old tape recorder from the dinosaur era. Remember those things? They are quality pieces of machinery, sike!

Any who, thankfully the dude is rad as hell and didn’t give a f**k, so it all went smoothly. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.

“We just had a whole bunch of like fans, or not fans, I don’t know, but they were trying to hop my fence, and I have all these tough dudes here trying to kick their f**ken ass. So we’re all hopping the fence and there all skidding out, so I’m all hyper right now.”

“Right now I read an interview with Lil Wayne and it said, if you can meet anybody in the world who would it be and he goes, probably that n***a Bam from Pennsylvania because it looks like he don’t give a f**k.”

“So I just had to sit there and look at my best friend f**ken convulsing, foaming at the mouth, turning blue. It was terrible.”

Shock Mansion: Thanks heaps for your time, how have you been?

Krystle Lina: I’ve been awesome! :-)

Shock Mansion: Fill us in on Krystle Lina, what do you do and how long have you been
doing it?

Krystle Lina: I’m a model, host & professional shopper. Been shopping my whole
life, been modeling & hosting the past 5 years.

Shock Mansion: Thanks heaps for your time, how have you been?

Berenger Rose: Anytime! I have been really well, thanks for asking.

Shock Mansion: Fill us in on Berenger, what do you do and how long have you been doing it?

Berenger Rose: I’m a glamor model, and have been in the industry for almost 4 years now.

Shock Mansion: Thanks heaps for you time, how have you been?

Katie Chung Hua: I’ve been amazing! Thank you.

Shock Mansion: Fill us in on Katie, what do you do and how long have you been doing it?

Katie Chung Hua: I do bikini bodybuilding shows and fitness modeling. I also have my own sportswear clothing line coming soon!

Shock Mansion: What’s up Joel, how are you?

Joel Madden: Good man, how are you?

Shock Mansion: Yeah I’m really well thanks dude. To kick this off, can you give us an idea of what a normal day in the life of the Madden Brothers is like when your on tour?

Joel Madden: Usually we are on some kind of tour bus, you get up whenever you get up and depending on what kind of night you had depends on what you need to do that morning. Shower, find a bathroom, finding coffee on tour can be a little bit of a challenge sometimes. Me and my brother train a lot, we have been doing that for the last 2 years so we’d get up every day and train. We’d run, hit the pads, boxing and that kind of stuff. Usually after all of that it’s the evening and we start to get ready for our show, have a drink or something, eat and hang out and get ourselves into show mode. After the show, party all night.

Shock Mansion: What did you do to put food on the table before your music career took off?

Joel Madden: I worked pretty much any job I could, I lost a lot of jobs because I was always having to take off with the band for shows. I’ve painted houses, landscaping, I worked in shipping and receiving unloading trucks for big bookstores like Borders. That was pretty much the worst job I’ve ever had. I remember when I was working that job I would show up to work at around 7am, work til 4pm and then go straight to another job, waiting tables, that was the shittiest time of my life. For some reason the bosses I had were really hard on me, but hey, whatever. Back at that time me and Benji were living in an apartment together, we were trying to not only pay rent, but help our mom a bit, pay for the band and record demos, shit like that.

Big thank you to Vanessa Morgan, much love.

Shock Mansion: G’day mate, thanks for your time! First off we want to congratulate you on your awesome results at X-Games; we were on the edge of our seats watching you race the Rally circuit. We wanted to start off by talking about a passion that we both share, fast cars! You currently have your foot on all sorts of pedals can you fill us in on some of the racing you currently do?

Brian Deegan: Thanks! Aside from the Speed & Style competition at the X Games, I’ve been mostly focusing on racing-cars and trucks. I recently signed on to race late model stock cars in the NASCAR circuit and race trucks in the off-road Lucas Oil Series.

Shock Mansion: We noticed the other day that you’ve got a new tattoo on your chest; can you tell us a bit about it?

Brian Deegan: Sure, I got a portrait of Jesus on my chest…I really always try to have some meaning in the tattoos I get. I have a really close family, and a big part of our lives is our faith and going to church. The tattoo was in honor of that.

Shock Mansion: We wanted to start off by talking about a passion that we both share…fast cars! You have your foot on all sorts of pedals these days can you fill us in on some of the driving you currently do?

Tanner Foust: I’m competing in the US Formula DRIFT series in a NASCAR-V8 powered Scion TC that puts out about 650 hp. I’m also competing in the European Rallycross series, at X Games and the US Rallycross series driving a 600 hp Ford Fiesta that’s one of the most high-strung cars I’ve ever been in.

For the TV show Battle of the Supercars, I’m behind the wheel of something new every week. Among other things this year, I’ve been in a 500 hp Porsche GT3 RS, a 1000 hp Shelby GT 500 Mustang. I’m not allowed to talk much about Top Gear USA, which we’re filming right now, but as you can imagine on that show I’ll be in everything from a Ferrari to a tricycle.

And then there’s the stunt work which is play time in random everything… it’s not a bad gig!

Shock Mansion: Have you ever been to Australia? If you haven’t, is there a possibility you might come and check out the scene here?

Tanner Foust: I have yet to venture down there but have wanted to visit since I saw my first V-8 Super cars race on TV. Between that, jet boat racing and rally I know it would be hard to leave!

Watch Tanner win gold at X-Games 16 below:

Meet Professor Green. Not by colour, nor by nature. It’s just his alias.

His real name is Stephen Paul Manderson. He was raised in Hackney by his Grandmother and Great Grandmother.

Despite being very academically capable he didn’t see much of school after year 8. As smart as he was, he was too wild to stay in school. What followed was an attempt at a 9 to 5, a bad career choice and a police raid which nearly put him away, but fortunately didn’t.

Since narrowly avoiding prison he has signed a deal with Mike Skinner’s record label ‘The Beats’ (which sadly went bye bye in December 2007), he had his own radio 1 show, and did very well on the battle scene, intoxicating himself all the way along.

After a messy year wrestling with Warner to get his masters back, his dad passing and getting shanked in the neck with a broken bottle, he had a Facebook convo with Lily Allen which spawned a remake of 90’s classic ‘Just Be Good To Me’ for his album, featuring Lily Allen.

A European, UK and Australian tour with Lily (performing the song) later, he has signed to Virgin, gotten his teeth fixed and is just finishing his debut album ‘Alive Till I’m Dead’.

So without further ado, we would like to introduce Professor Green.

Shock Mansion: Green, how you going dude?

Professor Green: I’m doing good thanks.

Shock Mansion: First up mate, we appreciate the time you’ve given us. We know you’re busy as hell so cheers for having us.

Professor Green: Thank you for taking the time to talk to me.

Shock Mansion: First up Ruby, we appreciate the time you’ve given us. We know you’re busy as hell so cheers for chatting with us.

Ruby Rose: No worries. My pleasure.

Shock Mansion: We heard that you’re collaborating with skate brand Gallaz, can you fill us in on what products you’re working on and when it’s available?

Ruby Rose: Ive designed two kinds of shoes and a Board…Pretty sick! They are available in July.

Shock Mansion: First up mate, we appreciate the time you’ve given us. We know you’re busy as hell so cheers for chatting with us.

Corbin Harris: Yeah, I’m pumped, thanks for having me, the website looks sick, and it’s good to be up there with guys like Dustin, Jake and that.

Shock Mansion: Yeah dude we’ve been seeing a lot of you and Dustin on the new FuelTV advertisement.

Corbin Harris: *laughs* I haven’t even seen that yet!

Shock Mansion: Oh you haven’t?

Corbin Harris: Nah, is that the one where we talk about Maloof Money Cup together?

Shock Mansion: Yeah it’s gold.

Corbin Harris: Yeah Dustin is great to get in the studio, he never complains, answers all your questions, it’s funny because everyone thinks he is the opposite, but he’s actually one of the easiest to work with within the industry I recon.

Shock Mansion: Rad. Your career path is that of a unique one. You’ve built yourself on an integration of skating and working on TV. Full props for sticking your neck out and taking a risk! What made you want to push down that path?
