Last month, we heard that Pete Doherty was ditching a number of planned performances at music festivals in order to enter rehab and take control over his life. It sounded like a good plan but now it seems that things are not going as well as everyone hoped.
Doherty pulled out of his appearance at T in the Park to go to a Thai addiction center but now it is being reported that the former Libertines singer has been asked to leave after he was found to be too disruptive to the other patients.
The facility, which is named The Cabin, issued a statement through program director, Alastair Mordey: "Pete was discharged today for therapeutic reasons. […] Read more »
Taylor Swift must feel like she’s living a dream. She was recently named the wealthiest celebrity under 30 and now she’s been named as the recipient of a very prestigious award.
The 22-year-old singer was given the Ripple of Hope Award in recognition of her commitment to social change by the Robert F. Kennedy Center For Justice and Human Rights (good thing Kanye West wasn’t around to ruin that moment!).
Kerry Kennedy said in a statement: "Taylor Swift's dedication to advocacy at such a young age continues to inspire me, and I'm delighted to honor her as one of our 2012 Ripple of Hope Award recipients. As a young person, Taylor has already accomplished so much, and I look forward to watching all that she will do to help build a brighter, more peaceful world for us all."[…] Read more »
It seems that at any given point in the day, someone is commenting about the drama over at American Idol and who better to voice their opinions than ousted judge, Jennifer Lopez. When ABC News asked her who she would like to see sitting on the judges panel now that she and Steven Tyler are definitely out, she had a lot to say.
"I think like Bono or Bon Jovi or Mick Jagger. You know me, I think big."
Well, if the producers couldn’t afford her request for a $2 million raise, which would have increased her salary to $17 million for the third season, it’s highly unlikely that they will have the funds to secure someone like Bono.
She also commented on the fact that things will change now that she and Tyler are gone. She said: "We had a little bit of magic. I don't know, with him gone, it might be a different formula."[…] Read more »
Today, Motown is mourning the loss of Bob Babbitt, a member of the legendary Funk Brothers. The bassist passed away in Nashville, Tennessee at 74 years of age. The news was confirmed by Motown Museum chief curator Lina Stephens.
The musician’s son, Joe Kreinar, explains that his famous father, whose real name was Robert Kreinar, had brain cancer and had been in a hospice. "He was a tough man, strong," Kreinar said. "He could take pain. Right now I miss him deeply, and it's only been a few hours."
Born in Pittsburgh, Babbitt played the bass on some incredibly memorable tracks including Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," the Temptations' "Ball of Confusion," ''Inner City Blues" by Marvin Gaye, Edwin Starr's "War" Gladys Knight's "Midnight Train to Georgia" to Del Shannon's "Little Town Flirt" to Funkadelic's "I Just Wanna Testify."[…] Read more »
Now that the New Kids on the Block have enjoyed a very successful (and surprising!) comeback, other boy bands have toyed with reunions and the Backstreet Boys, who have toured with the New Kids, are no exception.
The only problem was that Kevin Richardson was struggling to commit to rejoining the group after he left in 2006. Since then, he has sporadically performed with the Backstreet Boys -- Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean – but now it has been announced that Richardson has agreed to permanently return to the lineup.
Carter says the group "couldn't be happier to have our brother back with us."
ABC's Good Morning America will be hosting the reunion performance.[…] Read more »
The legendary Bob Dylan is about to celebrate a remarkable five decades in the industry and what better way to commemorate this incredible achievement than to do what he does best?
It has been announced that Dylan will be releasing Tempest, a ten-track album that is scheduled to be dropped on September 11, 2012.
While some artists are trying to figure out how to come up with their second album, this will be Mr. Dylan’s 35th studio effort and it’s just absolutely incredible to imagine that he did this for the first time 50 years ago.
The 71-year-old was recently awarded the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, by Present Barack Obama who said: "There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music," Obama said. "All these years later, he's still chasing that sound, still searching for a little bit of truth. […] Read more »
