Amy Winehouse Posthumous Album

It was announced today, that Amy Winehouse fans can expect a NEW album from the late soul singer on December 5.

The record, titled Lioness: Hidden Treasures, is produced by Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, and will feature alternate versions of Amy's music, as well as some new material.


The full tracklisting is as follows:

“Our Day Will Come (Reggae Version)” – reggae re-working of classic 60’s doo wop song

“Between The Cheats” – new Amy composition recorded in London in May 2008

“Tears Dry” – originally written by Amy as a ballad, this is the original version she recorded in November 2005

“Wake Up Alone” – the first song recorded for the “Back To Black” sessions. This is the one-take demo recorded in March 2006

“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” – Amy’s beautiful reading of the Carole King written Shirelles classic.

“Valerie” - one of Amy’s jukebox favourites. This is the original slower tempo version of the Mark Ronson produced post “Back To Black” single. Recorded in December 2006.

“Like Smoke” featuring NAS  – Amy and Nas became really good friends after Amy name checked the New York rapper on “Back To Black’s” “Me & Mr Jones”.  “Like Smoke” is finally Amy doing a song with one of her favourite artists.

“The Girl From Ipanema” – the first song the 18 year old Amy sang when she first went to Miami to record with Salaam.

“Halftime” - Amy had talked to Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson of the Roots about working together.

Best Friends” – “Frank” era live set opener produced by Salaam Remi. Probably the first song that early Amy fans would have heard live.

“Body & Soul” with Tony Bennett - cover of 30’s jazz standard with hero Tony Bennett. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios London in March 2011

“A Song For You” - heartbreaking and emotional version of the Leon Russell classic made famous by Donny Hathaway. Hathaway was Amy’s all-time favourite artist and the song was recorded in one take, just Amy and her guitar, at her home in London during the spring of 2009 as she battled her demons.

James Franco Does 'Vman' Magazine

Check out my husband, Ja'mie Franco, give good face for the cover of Vman Magazine's December 2011 issue:


some highlights from inside the mag:

On life on and off camera:“There is a bit of a dichotomy between my work on camera as an actor and off-camera. I am still hired as an actor in commercial narrative films and my responsibility there is to create characters that are believable and entertaining in each given project. I don’t see my participation in films like Milk or 127 Hours as anything other than storytelling devices among many such devices for the directors of those films. I am a collaborator, but a collaborator serving a director’s vision.”

On people’s skepticism of the concept of celebrity: “You know, I’ve embraced it now. I actually like this sort of superficial criticism of the work, because in a way it becomes this sort of beautiful reflection of our culture.”

NEW The Ting Tings

Check out the just released music video for Avril Lavigne's The Ting Tings NEW single "Hang It Up" off their upcoming album Life+Times:


counting down the days til this jingle ends up on a tampon or birth control commercial. 

'American Horror Story' Does EW Mag


you're gonna regret it. 
 

NEW Rihanna

Check out the just released music video for Rihanna's NEW single "We Found Love" off her album Talk That Talk:


The video for "We Found Drugs" "We Found Love" is a cross between Madonna's Ray Of Light and the Ike & Tina Turner movie "What's Love Got To Do With It". when you combine the two, you get a brilliantly gay execution, e.g. this video! I enjoy the vomiting of the confetti (or whatever that was), the rainbow colored cigarette ash, the literal casting of the male lead, and the British accent. not bad RiRi. although, I must say, it almost seems as if you are trying too hard with this one. as if you are begging to be kicked off the D.A.R.E. program. as if you're some troubled starlet. AS IF! listen, we get it, you're a bad gurl! but maybe next time you can give us something a bit more cherry? something with a little pep in it. you think you can do that? thanks.


and may I remind you, that it does not say RSVP on the statue of liberty!

Go See Pedro Almodovar's 'The Skin I Live In'



that's all..

Eminem, Lil Wayne, And Keith Richards Do 'GQ'

Check out a very constipated looking Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Keith Richards strike a pose for the cover of GQ Magazine's November 2011 issue:


Here is some of what Eminem shared with the mag:

On getting over an addiction to prescription meds: “I’m very much a creature of habit. If I’m used to waking up in the morning and having [a Red Bull], 
I could do it every morning for the next ten years straight until I find something else to move on to. So if 
I’m used to taking a Vicodin when I wake up in the morning because I’m hungover from -drinking or taking pills…The bigger the crowd, the bigger my habit got.”

On going to rehab in 2005: “Every addict in rehab feels like everyone’s staring at them. With me? Everyone was staring at me. I could never be comfortable. There were people there that treated me normal. Then there were a bunch of f—ing idiots who aren’t even concentrating on their own sobriety because they’re so worried about mine. They’re stealing my hats, my books - it was chaos. Everything was drama in there. And at the time, I didn’t really want to get clean. Everybody else wanted me to. And anyone will tell you: If you’re not ready, nothing is going to change you. Love, nothing.”

NEW Britney Spears

Check out the just released music video for Britney Spear's NEW single "Criminal" off her album Femme Fatale:


looks like Britney has been taking classes at the January Jones Acting School For Girls. seriously though, when a Britney Spears perfume bottle scores a cameo in a Britney Spears music video and ends up stealing the show, you know you're fucked. I did, however, enjoy the flipping of the weave and the door-way hand jiving. oh, and the sex scene in the shower was pretty steamy, however, I'm still trying to figure out whether that steam came from the heat of the shower or from one of Britney's orifices. all and all, another so so Britney Spears video.

James Franco Does Gucci

Check out my husband, Ja'mie Franco, give good face for Gucci's made-to-measure ad campaign:


you need to give it up, had about enough, he belongs to me, THE BOY IS MINE.

Rooney Mara Does 'Vogue'

Here's a sneak peek of 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' actress, Rooney Mara on the cover of Vogue's November 2011 issue:


And here are some highlights from inside the mag:

On the day she got the part of Lisbeth: “I was ready to throw down. I was thinking, You either think I can be this girl or you don’t, but I need to move on with my life. He sat me down and gave me this long spiel about all the bad things that are going to come to whoever plays this part. He said something like, ‘Vivien Leigh was incredible in A Streetcar Named Desire, but she will always be Scarlett O’Hara, and you need to be prepared for that.’”

On how she’s changed since taking on the role: “Before, I dressed much girlier. A lot of blush-colored things. Now I literally roll out of bed and put on whatever is there. I have really enjoyed being a boy this last year.”



On being a bit like Lisbeth herself: “I am very slow to warm. I’ve always been sort of a loner. I didn’t play team sports. I am better one-on-one than in big groups. I can understand wanting to be invisible and mistrusting people and wanting to understand everything before you engage with the world."

NEW Beyonce

Check out yet another NEW music video for Beyonce's throwback jam "Love On Top" off her album 4:



I'm totally getting some New Edition, Jackson 5 vibes with this one. that said, it has come to my attention that queen b has definitely been half fasting her latest videos. she's not bringing me the Sasha Fierce we all know and love. probably because she rushed to get this out when she discovered her body would soon look like a Whoopi, or a Chaka, or an Aretha, or a post breakdown Mariah. better bring it next time guurrl!

Lady Gaga Video Shoot

Check out these trannyfierce photos of Lady Gaga from her "Marry The Night" video shoot in NYC yesterday:




  
"Marry The Night" is my favorite song off Gaga's "Born This Way" album. it is very reminiscent to the La Bouche 90's classic "Be My Lover", a song I use to jam out to before TGIF would come on.
