‘Rihanna and Drake are just having fun at the moment. Neither of them are relationship people really. But Drake has made it clear that if things are going to get serious with them, he doesn’t want her speaking with Chris.’ That was the point young Conor Oberst was making on “Make War”, how new lovers try to wipe out old lovers.

My assumption is that Ray is too much of a pro to get into the deep album cuts, we’ll be lucky if we get “Harry Rag”
A waste of money? Oh, I guess, it is the sort of thing you treat yourself though you know you have no real need for it. It just looks cool, like the mono album CDs in their original covers earlier this century!
“You can convey a thought or a story or completely describe a character or a situation through words and the whole process of editing and re-editing and rethinking and imagining. I think that that’s what I loved about writing the novel”
I don’t envy Diddy, I mean, who’d want t wake up in the morning and discover that they’d Diddy? On the one hand you’ve got half a billion bucks in the bank but to offset it, you’re Puff Daddy
Elton is such a mother hen and such an aggressively self-satisfied born again sober guy that he can’t tell the difference. Just because he is straight doesn’t nobody is gonna take any drugs any more.

True it isn’t as blatant a rip as “Express Yourself” and I myself didn’t notice it until it was shown to me, still the two are too close for comfort, particular the hook ‘the hyah hyah hyahs” are a signal post for the “applause applause
Remember when John Hammond was discovering Bob Dylan and Ahmet Ertegun was finding Aretha Franklin and Led Zeppelin, and working out their albums and Clive Davis was making Janis Joplin the face of Columbia. Well, forget about it, man. It doesn’t happen any more

He produced Cash’s “Rings of Fire” as well as writing hits for as hits for hits for everybody from Elvis Presley to Cliff Richards
Always willing to exploit the opportunity fof an easy post on our incredible story eating website (20,000 and counting), we are gonna take 10 articles to tell you our opinion of them… in reverse order of course
If she got recognized with nobody around to protect her, Beyonce would be ripped apart. From love, jealous, who knows, right?
What we can’t say is how long it has been in production because, hell, a parody of Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger”???
Instead it has that certain post-808s Drake-y downbeat, it’s like mixing heroin with ludes
Sesame Street, Cookie Monster, Cookies at all and Icona Pop, these are a few of my favorite things
50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now, Rolling Stones current best of, is completely ridiculous, a snap shot of heavy touring outfits plus their perennial favorites
It’s like a one way ticket to seriouslyness!

Here is VW covering Robin covering Benny Hill -at least that’s my story…
I know how fast you need new product: it spits out information faster than you can feed it.
While, admittedly, how far is a fourteen year old gonna go? Perhaps a little further than this.
This means that a love of music is part of our DNA, it goes beyond just being something we learn to something we are born with as simply an animal in a world of appearances.
It is really simple: LIST NEW RELEASES BY ARTIST. Imbeciles.
really it is like “The Code Of The Wooster” –a morality tale about never letting a friend down and then it becomes a different kind of morality tale
