There has been so much speculation about who the producers are considering for the judges’ panel for the upcoming 11th season of American Idol after the departures of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler (and, possibly, Randy Jackson) so it’s actually a little different to hear someone voicing their own interest in being added to the roster.
Aretha Franklin’s songs have been performed to death by contestants year after year on the reality singing competition so why shouldn’t she be allowed to finally give some commentary?
In an email response to the question about whether the Queen of Soul would be interested in being on American Idol, she wrote: "Yes I am interested as a judge!"[…] Read more »
Almost everyone has heard the iconic women empowerment anthem “I Am Woman” but, unless you are from that era (or cared enough to do some research), you may not know much about the singer-songwriter who made it famous.
Helen Reddy, who hails from Australia, left the music industry a decade ago and explored other aspects of life, including becoming a trained clinical hypnotherapist.
During a recent interview, she explained: "I have very wide-ranging interests, so, singing `Leave Me Alone' 43 times per song lost its charm a long time ago."
Still, the woman who inspired so many couldn’t stay away forever and will be starting with a couple intimate shows in California this month. She is, however, returning to the stage on her own terms.[…] Read more »
Madonna might be getting older but she may not necessarily be getting wiser. Of course, she also continues to push the envelope on what is appropriate and what is offensive during her live shows.
During a recently concert in Paris, the singer from Detroit showed a video of France’s far-right National Front party leader with a swastika superimposed on her forehead. This wasn’t a one-time thing either – the video has been shown during other stops on the singer’s tour and, as can be expected, the party is outraged.
The National Front plans to file a complaint against Madonna in French court regarding the “insults,” says spokesman Alain Vizier.[…] Read more »
After a tragic jet ski accident left little 11-year-old Kile Glover brain dead last week, his mother, Tameka Foster, still clings to hope that he will recover. Foster is the ex-wife of Usher Raymond and is also the mother of the singer’s two sons, the half-brothers of Glover.
The story is incredibly sad and it continues to get sadder.
The boy remains on life support, although doctors have ruled out the possibility that he could recover brain function. Now, Foster has been informed that her insurance coverage is reaching its limit and that she may be forced to remove her son from life support as early as next month.[…] Read more »
The organizers of the Hard Rock Calling festival in London stick to the rules, regardless of who is trying to break them. Thousands of people were gathered in Hyde Park to hear Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney performing (McCartney was actually a surprise). Along with Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and Springsteen’s famous E Street Band, they thrilled the crowd with rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There” and most of “Twist and Shout.”
What happened? Why didn’t they get to finish the song?
At 10:40pm, the organizers cut the power after promising London's Westminster Council that the show would end by 10:15pm.
E Street guitarist Steven Van Zandt was furious and tweeted: "One of the greatest gigs ever in my opinion. But seriously, when did England become a police state?"[…] Read more »
Young Buck has had a rough few years. Back in 2010, the rapper from Nashville filed for bankruptcy and had come up with a five-year debt payment plan which he filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. His former mentor, 50 Cent, blocked those plans after the pair has clashed over Buck’s recording contract with G-Unit.
Buck’s plan was to just ditch his agreement anyway but 50’s lawyers argued: "If the debtor defaults under the recording agreement, and/or rejects the recording agreement, G-Unit would maintain a claim for damages flowing to it as a result of the debtor's failure to perform under the recording agreement in an amount believed to be not less than $10,000,000."
Things got worse for the young rising star from there. […] Read more »
