Leave m' Lily Alone!

BY Susan in Music Stuff

Last Tuesday night I went to see Lily Allen at the Bowery Ballroom with Matt and Kim and it was such an awesome show. Except for the people...When miss L.A. got on stage she was super cute (as usual) but when she took a swig from a glass of what could have been water or soda, everyone in the audience was shouting 'Yeah Lily! Way to go!' and other encouraging words for her to 'drink' even though she has apparently quit drinking and drugs entirely. It was pretty ... Read More

The BPA (Brighton Port Authority) I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat (Southern Fried) The Brighton Port Authority is a moniker for Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, and a horde of his fave featured artists. The BPA's fun and rhythm-heavy I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat is clad with various forms of percussion, bass, synths, guitars, and some friendly distortion thrown in for good measure and it's as good as Cook's classic You've Come a Long Way, Baby. ...

Soul legend Etta James just made some scathing remarks from the stage at one of her shows about Beyonce Knowles, apparantly because Knowles had the audacity to sing James' signature song 'At Last' at the Obama inaugural ball . Listen to the clip of her rant above and let us know: Do you think her ire at Knowles (who incidentally just played James in the biopic Cadillac Records ) is justified? Or do you think she's just bitter because Barry didn't ask her to ... Read More

Notorious B.I.G.

BY Laurie in Music Stuff

Who's going to see the Biggie movie Friday night? I hope it's good. My significant other, the very talented photographer Michael Lavine , worked with Biggie several times back in the day, so I've heard some interesting stories. I know when people make a bio, they have to reference the most iconic images, so its fitting that the movie poster echo's one of Michaels shots. Check out our interview with the actor who plays Big, Jamal Woolard, in the new issue hitting ... Read More
