Remember The Pussycat Dolls? Former Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones claims that the group was a front for a prostitution ring and the singers were all passed around and abused by high level music executives. Jones, 33, made the explosive accusation in a series of tweets over the weekend accusing managers and executives of taking advantage of the group she joined as a teenager in 2003.

The allegations come at a time where claims of sexual misconduct in the entertainment business are at an all-time high following the multiple accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein came to light over a week ago. Kaya Jones took to Twitter to share her own claims. »
Paula Wachowiak, a now-62-year-old woman from Buffalo, N.Y., has come forward alleging that Harvey Weinstein exposed himself to her when she was an intern for Weinstein in 1980, making her case one of the oldest alleged instances of Weinstein’s misbehavior.

Unlike some legendary A-list filmmakers, Martin Scorsese has always been fairly prolific. He fairly reliably knocks out a movie every two or three years, and has never let more than four pass between major films (the gap between “The Departed” and “Shutter Islalnd” was his longest. Somehow, in that time, Scorsese’s also been a fairly prolific documentary filmmaker as well — this century alone has seen his films on Bob Dylan, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones and the New York Review Of Books, among many others.

Glance at Chris Janson’s impressive resume so far: one platinum single and a hot new song rocketing up the charts. A much-anticipated second album that he co-wrote from start to finish. And, to top it off, crazy harmonica skills and a riveting stage style that makes you wonder if he’s the love child of Loretta Lynn and Mick Jagger.
So why in the world does Janson describe himself as just an ordinary, everyday kind of guy?
“I pride myself in trying to be that,” says the 31-year-old artist, “because I’ve really never known any different … I’ve »

I can’t listen to The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” anymore without wincing. Ignoring Mick Jagger’s protests, Donald Trump co-opted this ode to excess and turned it into an anthem of darkness during his presidential campaign. Not since Francis Ford Coppola used Wagner’s “Song of the Valkyries” to harken the helicopter attack in “Apocalypse Now” has a piece of music carried with it a feeling of dread and impending doom. Now it’s Elton John who must be up in arms over the use of “Rocket Man” as a derivative of Trump »

Let’s get one thing straight: Paul McCartney doesn’t need any extra star power. On Sunday night, rock’s favorite knight of the realm ripped through 39 of his seemingly endless stream of classics during a three-hour session at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Part of his ongoing One on One tour, he was joined on the marathon sprint through his own musical history by his long-time backing band, who have now been with him twice as long as the Beatles. The previous show two days earlier made headlines for an encore duet Bruce Springsteen, but this night »

People will tell you Tom Waits’ best album is Rain Dogs. This is not strictly true. It is perhaps the most Waits-ian of Tom Waits albums, by virtue of having a Waits lookalike on the cover and a song selection that ranges across virtually every genre of music (and combinations thereof) Waits could wrangle. But the best Tom Waits album is not Rain Dogs. Instead it’s Bone Machine (which netted Waits his first Grammy in 1993), and it turns 25 years old today.
Waits explained Rain Dogs’ titular inspiration to Spin in 1985: “You know, dogs in the rain lose their way back home. »

So looking at Jemaine Clement and Mick Jagger there are some startling similarities, especially in their voices. as most of you should know, shame on those that don’t, Mick Jagger is the main vocalist for the Rolling Stones and is a rock legend in his own right. Jemain Clement is the voice of Nigel in Rio and Rio 2. He’s also the voice of the giant crab in Moana. Clement also looks a lot like Benecio Del Toro when you really look at him. When you hear the two side by side it’s kind of amazing to hear how alike
Country star Thomas Rhett is pretty excited about fatherhood.

With the recent 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, here is a look at those music stars who made a transition to film. Some were more successful than others. Some made a fleeting crossover and some are best forgotten as far as their film careers went…
In terms of the King, Elvis has an undoubtedly huge legacy as far as music goes. His influence as far as attitude, showmanship and indeed the music itself is still being felt. He was in that bracket of the most influential musical acts of his era alongside the Beatles. However his impact on film was also important. He showed that a cultural phenomenon could operate over two platforms.
Beginning in 1956 with Love Me Tender, Elvis would go onto make over 30 films until 1969. A few more iconic than others of course, such as Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas and some more interesting attempts to »
