  • U2 $100 Million Apple Deal 'Songs of Innocence' iTUnes

    U2's iTunes Deal Reportedly Cost Apple $100 Million

    Uno, dos, tres, ka-ching! Love it or hate it, U2's surprise album Songs of Innocence is probably in your iTunes and it didn't cost you a cent. But there's no such thing as a free lunch, and the Irish quartet is reportedly set to make bank on the LP, with Apple shelling out an estimated $100 million to hawk the record and lead single "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)" in conjunction with the iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch. (Perhaps they should've just titled it iLLUMINATI?)That dollar figure comes from various sources, and U2 manager Guy O'Seary doesn't dispute it in a new interview with Billboard. He points out that Songs of Innocence went out to 7 percent of Earth's population in one fell swoop, and that Apple is giving tens of millions to AIDS charity RED, lest anyone criticize Bono and Co.

    Chris Brown to Ray Rice: 'Seek Therapy or Become a Monster'

    With all the attention being paid to Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his now-wife in an elevator, it was inevitable that comparisons would be made to Chris Brown's brutal 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. The latter case is the most famous celebrity domestic-violence incident in recent memory, and both events share the fact that the public saw images of the victims after (or during) the attack.Yesterday, Rihanna was affected by the fallout from Rice's offenses when the NFL decided to scrap a video of her performing "Run This Town" before a game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Ravens, who cut Rice this week.

  • Grimes Scraps Album Rihanna Go

    Grimes Says Her New Album 'Sucked,' so She Started Over

    Any fans of Grimes know that she's a thoughtful, sensitive person. She's written well-reasoned screeds against drugs and sexism, and recently caught a good amount of crap for protesting the ALS Ice Bucket challenge on the grounds that the ALS Association tests on animals, not to mention that she didn't want to waste water during the California drought."All these people with AL.S were like, 'You're the worst person ever.' I was crying for days," she revealed in a New York Times Magazine profile. Naturally, her critics didn't seem to register the part where she donated to the Malala Fund, a charity that supports education for girls, instead.

  • Jack White 'Would You Fight For My Love' Video

    Jack White Brings 'Shining' Vibes to 'Would You Fight For My Love?' Video

    If Jack White's video for "Would You Fight for My Love?" isn't a direct homage to The Shining, the Third Man boss has some subliminal Stephen King/Stanley Kubrick vibes swimming around in that neatly coiffed head of his. Directed by Robert Hales, the blue-hued visual for the Lazaretto cut finds White sitting alone in a bar, with members of his backing band lounging in booths nearby, before some freaky stuff starts to happen.Here's where we'll get all Room 237 on you. The video was filmed in the Cruise Room, "Denver's original post-prohibition bar, located in the Oxford Hotel." The Shining features a beautiful art deco bar located in a Colorado hotel where the main character, Jack (!), nurses his sorrows, worrying that his cabin fever might bring back his violent temper.

  • Iggy Azalea Sex Tape Lawyers

    Iggy Azalea's Lawyers Say Sex Tape Might Exist, Show Her as a Minor

    Sigh. Just after Iggy Azalea categorially denied ever taking part in a sex tape and saying anyone who tries to "profit off someone else's intimate moments against their will is a sex offender," her lawyers are saying that the alleged video, which is being shopped to adult entertainment company Vivid, might be very well be real, with some disgusting details. As TMZ reports, Azalea's legal team say that any sex videos starring the "Fancy" rapper would come from an ex-boyfriend who's a "spurned business suitor." The video, should it come to light, might also have been shot "without her knowledge or consent" and quite possibly when she was a minor. See? We told you it was disgusting.This is quite the about-face from yesterday, when her reps told the Huffington Post that "it is categorically not Iggy Azalea in the video in question.

  • Ryan Adams 'Gimme Something Good' Letterman encore

    Ryan Adams' 'Gimme Something Good' Is So Nice Letterman Has Him Play Twice

    Last we saw Ryan Adams on late-night TV, he brought his new band, the Shining, to The Tonight Show for a rendition of his new album's standout track, "Gimme Something Good." Nearly a month later, Adams came back to the small screen for another go-round of the song on Letterman, this time showing off a lot more confidence and comfort with his backing group and the track itself — not to mention that same denim jacket he's been wearing everywhere. The performance was so good that Letterman urged Adams and co. to do "just a little bit more," a request that Adams obliged, starting the song over as the credits rolled. This caps a busy week for the prolific singer-songwriter. Aside from performing four Hüsker Dü tracks with Bob Mould at a New York concert, Adams also released a series of bizarre promotional videos for his new album, Ryan Adams.

    Lykke Li Learns That U2 Are Kind of a Big Deal After Collaborating on 'The Troubles'

    By now you've almost certainly heard about the out-of-the-blue release of U2's new album, Songs of Innocence, and chances are, it's already on your phone, computer, or whatever device you have that uses iTunes. The 11-song LP closes with the wrencing track, "The Troubles," and features the vocal talents of Lykke Li, who represents the only guest star on the album (unless you count producer Danger Mouse, who's influence is always palpable).  In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 28-year-old Swedish singer revealed that she was "lying upside down" at her chiropractor's office when she found out about the album's Apple-sponsored release. It certainly came as a surprise, just like when Danger Mouse invited her to be on the album. "He texted me, 'Hey, do you want to sing on a U2 track?'" she says. "And I'm like, 'Yeah, I don't know.

    Here's Paul McCartney's Cheesy Video Game Song, 'Hope for the Future'

    Paul McCartney has already been immortalized in the video game world with 2009's The Beatles: Rock Band, and now the all-time great is taking his talents to that realm and providing original music for the new first-person shooter Destiny. On top of an original score he wrote with composers Mike Salvatori and Marty O'Donnell, McCartney contributed the game's theme song, "Hope for the Future," which plays over the end credits. Sad to say, this one might even sound out of place in a cheesy '80s movie, let alone a state-of-the-art game about killing invading aliens.
