Phillip Phillips may have struggled with serious health problems during his stint on American Idol but he didn’t give up and it paid off – he was declared the winner of the latest season of the singing competition.
During his victory performance, he sang his first single “Home” and, after it originally debuted, it peaked at #10 on the Hot 100 and moved 278,000 downloads that first week. That was back in May but now, suddenly, the song is seeing a lot more action.
The new artist received one of the greatest gifts imaginable – “Home” was chosen by NBC as part of their coverage for the women's gymnastics events and, really, it was such a good fit. […] Read more »
Michael Jackson’s mother was recently reported missing by a family member but, as court documents show, she was actually sent to a resort where her contact with the outside world was cut off so she had no idea people were looking for her. She did not have access to a telephone or her iPad and her stay at the resort in Tucson, Arizona was unplanned but she was compelled to go after her doctor ordered her to get some rest. Her initial plan for the end of summer was to get in an RV and travel cross-country to watch her sons perform.
She found out that people were worried about her when she heard a television report. "While there was a telephone in my room, the telephone was not functioning and I could not dial out," she said in the documents. "In addition, there was no picture on the television in my room."[…] Read more »
Lil Wayne has always been rather prolific in terms of producing music and recently revealed that on August 15, 2012, he will be dropping his mixtape Dedication 4 which is the aptly named fourth installment of the Dedication mixtape series. It’s also supposed to include remixes of Ca$h Out's "Cashin' Out," Big Sean's "Burn" and Chief Keef's "I Don't Like."
Weezy fans may be disappointed to learn that this could be the last new music we hear from him in a while because he’s decided to reprioritize and skateboarding is going to become his main focus, while music takes a back seat.
He explained: "I picked up the skateboard and I thought it'd be a hobby and what happened is it's a lifestyle. In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. With these young kids now, you have to be about that life. It's kind of putting rap on the back burner. […] Read more »

The Wallflowers have been away from the music scene for a while now – seven years to be exact but frontman Jakob Dylan (the son of Bob Dylan) was always confident that they would find their way back to the studio someday and it looks like he was right.
"Knowing everybody as well as I do, I knew we would," Dylan says. "Glad All Over," the Wallflowers' first new album since 2005's "Rebel, Sweetheart," releases Oct. 2, with the first single, "Reboot the Mission," featuring the Clash's Mick Jones, already out. "We had a good, healthy break and got a little distance and a little appreciation for all of us to realize what a good thing it is to have the collaborative possibilities with the band and people you've been with for a long time."[…] Read more »
