UK Top 10 Singles 6-28-15

Yeah, nothing to see here but even so LA DJ Deorro nails it dead to rights with “Five More Hours” -a nearly perfect dance pop confection. I’ll take it over just about everything and it may be too late but I can see it contending for summer song of the 2015.

Fox News Blame Rap For The Decline Of Christianity

By Alyson Camus | May 14, 2015

Rap is not responsible for the decline of Christianity, on the contrary they push the God agenda all the time… but O’Reilly is a simple guy with huge blinders on each side of his big head… A decline of Christianity? I see that as a good thing, may be the product of more science in school curriculum?

Medium Cool: Best Talk Show Guest February 16th, 2015

By Iman Lababedi | February 14, 2015

I am going with Chris Brown as the Talk Show guest of the week, with Taylor Swift (and John Oliver in the same show) a close second. I am not sure what Taylor has to sell, maybe her reputation as taylor and her gang of lawyers sue everything that moves every day of the week: she is like Disney suing Ma and Pa toy stores called Timberbell’s Home -as though the name belonged to Disney and not J.M. Barrie/ As for Chris Brown, who was 18 years old when he attacked Rihanna and Brown could join a monastery tomorrow and the headline would read: Woman beater finds God

Texas In July I saw open for The Devil Wears Prada earlier this year and loved em, I’ve been listening to Paolo Nutini all summer, and he has a great voice but didn’t obsess over the album. Shellac should be a blast. But I am going with Chris brown because 1) nobody else will and 2) I really like his dance r&b.

Suge Knight Shot 6 Times At Chris Brown's Party!

By Alyson Camus | August 25, 2014

A source close to Suge tells us … he was shot in the stomach and arm and apparently in other places as well… Suge walked out on his own power … a cop spotted him and walked the rap mogul to the police car where Suge sat. Suge was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.’
