Hey everybody! Due to excessive school work (IBDP, figure it out) I rarely find the time to work on anything. So I have unfortunately semi-retired. I'm sure you all will continue the amazing work without me. Keep going!

Hello and welcome to my user page. It's pretty ordinary, I'm here to edit articles, not my user page! I made a dire mistake before on Wikipedia, and I paid for it. At first I was scared to stand up for it, but in the end I decided to forget all of it and just push it aside, and start working on something different. I have changed, I have accepted my mistake as something childish of me, and I'm never gonna repeat it.
My name is Arunav. I grew up listening to normal Bollywood music, but at the age of 12, one of my friends introduced me to a very weird and embarrassing pop song I don't even remember now. I always had, and still have, a habit of researching on anything I find interesting, and when I did some search on that song, I found an article which mentioned Shakira's song "She Wolf". At that time, Shakira was enjoying popularity in India due to "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", so I decided to check the song out. From that point onward, I was smitten by her talent and originality and she is now my favourite. I soon started exploring more genres and came across talented artists such as Kylie and Gwen. After I saw the poor condition of Shakira articles on Wikipedia, and noticed there was a newly formed wikiproject dedicated to her, I quickly joined it and started upgrading her articles. I usually work on Shaki and Kylie related articles. I planned to make my favourite Shakira album She Wolf a good topic, and it became one on 8 January 2014. Today I can proudly claim that I have the written the highest number of Shakira and Kylie Minogue GA articles on Wikipedia.
I am also the creator of The Shakira Portal. If you think one of the Shakira song/album/tour article you contributed to should be included as a selected article on the portal, ask me on my talk page. At the least, the article should have a proper lead.
Congratulations on your first GA-class article :) Keep up the excellent work! DivaKnockouts 13:59, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

"Spinning Around" is the lead single from Light Years (2000), Kylie Minogue's seventh studio album. The disco-influenced dance-pop song addresses the theme of reinvention, with Minogue (pictured performing the song) claiming that she has changed as a person and learned from the past. Released in June 2000, it received favourable reviews from music critics, who regarded it as one of the album's highlights and praised Minogue for returning to her signature musical style. The song was a commercial success and became Minogue's "comeback" single following the critical and commercial disappointment of her sixth studio album Impossible Princess (1997). It entered the Australian Singles Chart at number one, becoming the singer's first chart-topper since "Confide in Me" (1994). The song also debuted at number one in the United Kingdom, and was her first UK number-one single since 1990. The accompanying music video features Minogue dancing and enjoying herself in a disco. It became popular for the gold hotpants she sported in most of the scenes and led to a media "fetish" regarding her bottom. "Spinning Around" has been performed by Minogue during most of her concert tours. (Full article...)
