“People don’t write songs anymore ... There’s nothing innovative.”
Oh man … Joni Mitchell has got some thangs to say about the state of the music industry today and the so-called artists making new music. In an interview with Vogue magazine, where Mitchell was asked about her new box set, Joni went OFF on the “talentless” musicians making music these days and even sounded offended when she was asked if she had influenced andy of today’s young musicians. To be honest, I don’t get the sense that Joni intended to share her opinions on today’s artists but the questions asked of her seemed to trigger her very blunt and honest response. Read on to learn what Joni Mitchell really thinks about today’s musicians. More »

After the leak of 13 unfinished demo songs from Madonna‘s forthcoming 13th album, she found herself in a situation where she had to move up the official release of her new music in order to take back control of her artistic goal and get her release plan back on schedule.

"The Next Style Breakout Star"
Musician FKA twigs is featured in the new issue of Vogue magazine, on newsstands now, in a special feature where she models statement earrings. Now, I’m not a big reader of fashion magazines but my assumption is that each month, mags find a hot fashionista to model accessories or trends of the moment. FKA twigs is a total It girl right now so it makes sense that Vogue would want to feature her in the mag. Have a look below at one of her Vogue photos, beautifully shot by Patrick Demarcelier, and see how well FKA twigs does as a fashion model. More »

"They did…whatever they were into"
Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is featured in the new issue of Elle magazine UK and altho the issue isn’t out just yet, the magazine is giving us an early look at his appearance in this new issue. Jamie looks insanely good, as usual, in the photo below from his spread and in his interview, he opens up to the magazine about his first visit to a real life sex dungeon. I guess the guy would go to any lengths to get into a movie character like kinky Christian Grey. Elle has also released a behind the scenes video from Jamie‘s photoshoot which, sigh, you just have to watch. More »
