Amy Winehouse’s dad isn’t mad that Beyoncé covered “Back to Black” — along with Andre 3000 — for the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby. He does, however, seem not quite on board with the idea, much like some of the fallen singer’s fans:
First I have heard about Beyonce and Back to Black. Sounds like some of you don't like the idea.—

Miley Cyrus shows up in rap video with Lil Kim, hires Britney Spears' manager, may or may not be leaving Twitter
On her 2007 single “See You Again,” Miley Cyrus explains her behavior in front of a boy she likes with the phrase “Just being Miley.”
Back then, “being Miley” she was talking about getting flustered in the presence of a hot dude. Six years later, what does “Just being Miley” mean?
Apparently it means ditching your former manager to sign with Larry Rudolph, best known as Britney Spears’ manager; prepping an album featuring Pharrell Williams and “N—-s in Paris” producer Hit-Boy; and joining Lil Kim and Kim’s protege Tiffany Foxx in the video for a song about getting so drunk your face goes numb.
Get a look at “Twisted” (which also features a verse by Kim) below. READ FULL STORY »
Miracles happen when you Beliebe.
As of today, Bieber has surpassed Lady Gaga as the most-followed individual on Twitter. Currently, Bieber has 33,340,747 followers; Gaga, in the number two spot, has 33,334,564. But there’s no hard feelings from Mother Monster. The lady who was the first to pass 10, 20 and then 30 million followers tweeted at Bieber last week, “So proud of @justinbieber and all the Beliebers! I’m only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it! Monsters support you!”
As they say, with great power comes great responsibility. Here are just a couple of the things Bieber has recently put out there in the twitterverse: READ FULL STORY »
Twitter has been a little bit funkier since Sunday, mostly because of an account set up under the name 3rdEyeGirl.
On Sunday, 3rdEyeGirl started linking out to Prince songs, many of which sound like demos and bootlegs. The tracks have been an interesting mix of established tracks (a live version of “Bambi”) and stuff that is unfamiliar (“Same Page Different Book,” which you can check out below).
The tweeter in question has only linked out to four songs (all of which are uploaded to the same YouTube account under the same name), including a remix of Prince’s 2012 single “Rock N Roll Love Affair.”

Music docs: they’re so hot right now! Perhaps that’s why Lady Gaga gave all her Little Monsters a very special Christmas present yesterday by announcing that her “Cake” collaborator Terry Richardson is making a film documenting Gaga’s life, as well as “the creation of ARTPOP” — Gaga’s upcoming album — and the artist’s devoted fanbase.
Jack White slams Lady Gaga in Esquire UK: 'All image with no meaning' -- UPDATE: White clarifies his comments in a formal statement
In a move that will surprise approximately no one, rock messiah Jack White has expressed his distaste for Lady Gaga. The former White Stripes frontman told Esquire UK, “I don’t think she lives it because it’s all artifice.”
He added, “It’s all image with no meaning behind it. You can’t sink your teeth into it. It’s a sound bite. It’s very of this age, because that’s what people want. They want a Twitter line, a jpeg, an MP3.” READ FULL STORY »
Move over, Taylor Swift, there’s another musician who despises John Mayer more than you do.
Shooter Jennings took to Twitter yesterday to bash the ”Your Body is a Wonderland” singer’s guitar skills, country cred, and overall douche-y ways. The “Wild & Lonesome” rocker, who was apparently enraged by a Rolling Stone article on Mayer, also indirectly attacked Mayer’s girlfriend Katy Perry in his string of insults. The instigator offered only a semi-apology to the Twitterwerse for “sh**-talking” about Mayer’s “narcissistic drivel,” then re-tweeted Mayer’s fans’ tweets attacking him. Click below for some NSFW tweeting. READ FULL STORY »
Yesterday, Lil Wayne put everybody on notice: He is a very protective label boss, and he won’t hesitate to ruin your party if you cross one of his charges.
The 50,000 or so people who packed into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey yesterday for New York City radio station Hot 97′s Summer Jam festival got a rude awakening when headliner Nicki Minaj had pulled out of the show — one of the biggest annual events on the hip-hop calendar.
It all started when Hot 97 DJ and Hip-Hop Squares host Peter Rosenberg threw down “Starships,” on the current single from Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, while introducing rapper Kendrick Lamar. “We’re all about that real hip-hop,” he told the crowd. “I know there are some chicks in here waiting to sing along with ‘Starships’ later. I’m not talking to y’all right now. F— that bulls—.”
