How to be a dirty groupie slut

I'm all for scamming free alcohol at gigs, but are these girls for real???

What do you think - actors or sluts?

Soulja Girl

Last month in Atlanta, a woman went nuts at an old lady on a train - yelling at her (occassionally in rhyming freestyle!) and finally losing it when the rest of the people on the train try to get her to calm down.

The whole episode was captured on video and posted to YouTube:

and has now been remixed as a Baltimore Club hit by Ludachrist!

Ridiculous.

Controversy, new tunes, and a semi-nude Nick Cave


A few months ago I mentioned that Def Jam rapper Nas had announced that he was going to be releasing an album with a rather controversial title on July 1.

New reports have now emerged that he is releasing the album untitled, saying that "the people will always know what the real title of the album is, and what to call it".
Not having a derogatory or controversial title will definitely make it easier for it to be promoted in the media.

Nas told MTV last week, "Everybody is trying to stop the title. … Record stores are gonna have a problem in this day and time selling a record with that title".

Wondering what it was going to be called? Check out the shot of Nas below...

Daft Punk have begun work on a new album in their Paris studio.
It will be the follow-up to 2005's 'Human After All'.

Word on the new album came from their long time (now ex) manager Busy P:
"The boys are in a studio in Paris at the moment. The good thing is that they are making music…They are slow, you know, they are taking their time, and they have a right."

Busy P also revealed that he has stepped down as the band's manager to spend more time on his label Ed Banger.

If you are a bit of a sample-spotter, check out the YouTube clip below

 



Beck is now streaming the first song (titled 'Chemtrails') from his upcoming album, Modern Guilt, on his website.

The album is being produced by Danger Mouse, and Rolling Stone has reported the sound as 'channeling British rock of the 1960s'.

While the album doesn't yet have an official release date, many sources are quoting late June as being likely. Not long now.

 



Nick Cave is raising money to have a semi-nude bronze statue of himself riding a horse erected in his hometown of Warracknabeal, Australia.

Cave's been talking about this project since 2001, but in a recent interview Cave mentioned that he is now set on raising the $60,00 the statue will require.

"I'm not going to pretend it's not satisfying in some ways. But there's a lot of work to do yet.''

If Bon Scott can have a statue in his home town.... why not Nick Cave?!

The Olympics are just two months away, and UK fans who are tuning in to BBC Sport to watch the games are in for a surprise.

The Gorillaz have been hired by the broadcaster to work up both a title sequence and original music for the Olympics.

The project came from the stage show that the duo put together called Monkey Journey to the West, which was based on a traditional Chinese folktale. This same folktale was also the inspiration behind the cult 1979-80 TV show "Monkey" (remember the cloud? and the terrible dubbing?? If not, watch it below).

Executive producer Jonathan Bramley explained the idea behind the Olympics sequence: "Monkey's journey to the West becomes a journey to the East. Monkey and the characters will travel across China to Beijing. While they will use magical powers to fight off various monsters and demons, they'll also use all sorts of Olympic sports as well. So Monkey might use gymnastic powers, Pigsy will be hurdling, and Sandy uses taekwondo."
