NEW MUSIC: Prince – ‘The Breakdown’


Prince

You recall Prince’s highly publicized split from his record label Warner Bros. in 1996, at that time he scrawled the word “slave” on his face and changed his name to a symbol as a form of rebellion against the label. Now 18 years later, Prince has returned to Warner Bros. and will have full control over of his entire catalog!!!

“A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros. Records and Eye [sic] are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship,” Prince said in a statement.

Prince will record and release a new studio album and other projects as part of his new contract. Additionally, he will release a remastered deluxe version of his classic Purple Rain to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the movie and album.

In related news, Prince has released a surprise new single called The Breakdown, and it is available to download on iTunes now. Have a listen to The Breakdown via the player below.

Dirty Quote of the Day


Eminem
“There were times that it didn’t feel good to be me. I think deep down I just wasn’t happy with myself. There were some really dark moments in there, when I think about my thought processes when I was a high a lot. It wasn’t good and it certainly wasn’t me. I’m not even that sort of person.”

Keanu Reeves Joins Eli Roth’s Psychosexual Thriller


Keanu+Reeves

Keanu Reeves has signed on to executive produce and star in a new psychosexual thriller called Knock Knock by director Eli Roth.

Reeves will star as a married man who is left alone for the weekend when two young girls arrive at his home and seek to destroy his life. Sweet.

Of the role, Roth has said:

“I wanted to make a movie like Roman Polanski or Paul Verhoeven made when they were young, a classic psychosexual thriller that’s not a horror movie, but would have everyone on the edge of their seats. Getting Keanu is amazing, he’s a fine actor who is perfect for this. I feel I can have this movie ready for Toronto if I need to, and he’s catching a plane tomorrow and we’ll be fitting him for wardrobe right away.”

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: Rita Ora – ‘I Will Never Let You Down’


Rita Ora has dropped the music video for ‘I Will Never Let You Down,’ which is the first single off her upcoming sophomore album.

I wonder if she still has to fuck for tracks?

I also wonder if she still believes Jay Z is going to dump Beyonce and marry her? This is just a rumor I heard at an industry party a few months ago. Still, I wonder….

Speaking of fuckin’ for tracks, anybody heard from Joss Stone lately?
