Trent Reznor won’t play the Grammys again. That’s the line from the Nine Inch Nails leader, who’s still fuming that his closing performance on the night was cut short. It was “an utter waste of time,” he tells New Zealand’s 3 News.

Zachary Levi isn't rocking that beard for a role. The Chuck star joked to E! News that his facial hair is due to "unemployment," going on to give his take on this year's Super Bowl at the Bud Light Hotel Saturday night. "Super Bowls are that. They are super," Levi, who now calls New York City home, said. "It is insane to see one singular sporting event take over an entire city." "The parties that come out of it and the Foo Fighters…it's gnarly," he continued. "I'm just super blessed that I do what I do and people say 'hey come to our party and hang out and drink some Bud Light." Levi isn't really rooting for a team in this »

Even if you haven't Monte Pittman's name, chances are pretty good you've heard his music, as his mighty axe has swung through dozens of hit albums. He's played on nearly all of Madonna's records and tours since 2001, he co-wrote several songs on Prong's acclaimed albums Scorpio Rising and Power of the Damager, and his solo project Pain, Love & Destiny scored high on the charts, nabbing him several awards and nominations of his own. After spending many successful years in the indie rock and pop arena, Pittman has finally returned to his metal roots with the follow-up release The Power of Three – a dark and heavy project that finds him teaming up with another metal legend: Grammy-winning producer Flemming Rasmussen, best known for his contributions to Metallica's ...And Justice for All and Master of Puppets. The result is a feast of death, darkness and anguish that's unlike anything the artist has dished up before. »

Cloud to Ground marks former Zeppelin member's first album in collaboration with Norwegian ambient musician Helge Sten
Minibus Pimps, the musical coupling of Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Norwegian ambient musician Helge Sten, are set to release their debut album, Cloud to Ground. Due out on 3 March via Norwegian label SusannaSonata, the seven-track record marks the duo's debut release since they first started playing live together in 2011.
Cloud to Ground incorporates sounds generated by Kyma, a computer-based sound-design system that mutates organic instrument recordings. It was the same system that sound designer Ben Burtt used to create lonely robot Wall-e's voice in the 2008 CGI Pixar film and informs the album's electronic explorations of noise and rhythm. The new release will also feature tracks that were recorded during Minibus Pimps' live performances that have taken place in venues from Denmark to Norway to London. Sten, a prolific producer »

Martin Scorsese's latest movie The Wolf of Wall Street hits the big screen next week, and if you can look past the controversy you'll find a fast, funny and hugely entertaining look into the lives of some very bad men.
The heralded filmmaker has always had a keen eye (and ear) for marrying image to music, so with Wolf of Wall Street poised to open on Friday (January 17) in the UK, Digital Spy takes a look at 8 great uses of pop songs in Scorsese's career.
The Ronettes - 'Be My Baby' (Mean Streets)
"For a brief, fleeting moment, I’d forgotten I was rich and lived in America."
The Wolf of Wall Street—Martin Scorsese's first out-and-out comedy since After Hours—transforms the rise and fall of real-life stock swindler Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) into three hours of drug freak outs and privileged misbehavior. It wouldn't be too hard to turn Belfort's story into a tragic cautionary tale—a young man overwhelmed by the lure of sex, drugs, and power, etc.—but Scorsese, DiCaprio, and screenwriter Terence Winter play him up as an overtly comic, ridiculous figure: a big-time brat, incapable of controlling his impulses, who runs his penny stock empire like a demented Greek-letter fraternity, entertaining his pledges / employees with competitions, marching bands, strippers, and rah-rah pep rallies.
Surprisingly, the movie is less decadent style-wise than any of Scorsese's recent work, set mostly in offices and generic mansions lit with realistic, inexpressive flat whiteness. »
