Frances Bean Cobain talks about Montage of Heck and her Dad Kurt Cobain for the first time

Visual artist Frances Bean Cobain is the 22-year-old daughter of late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain. She recently talked to Rolling Stone about him as well as the new film by Brett Morgen called Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. In her own words, the film is about Kurt Cobain as a father, husband, artist and shows him as a kid, a teenager and a man. It does not seek to romanticism him, Frances Bean Cobain says. That tends to be done when artists die young. She states that he is “27 forever” and that society tends to be obsessed with dead artists. According to her, the main thing that made him take his own life was trying to live up to other’s expectations of him. Although he was already ambitious, the world expected even more from him and he felt inadequate as a result.

Although his band Nirvana ( had become well-known and successful from their albums, including Nevermind and In Utero, Frances Bean Cobain says that she does not like Nirvana’s music. You can see her actually state that by clicking here. She prefers other alternative bands like Brian Jonestown Massacre, Oasis and Mercury Rev, just like Ray Lane does. However, she has met the members of Nirvana and they all remarked at how much she reminded them of her father. And just like her father at 22 she is starting to become more serious about her visual art.

Lil Wayne Lawsuit Continues

There is no making up and being friends for Lil Wayne and former manager Birdman. The lawsuit that Birdman wanted Wayne to drop is still out there. It doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. A lot of people wonder where he will go after he leaves Cash Money, but the lawsuit shouldn’t be hard to settle. Birdman has the money. Wayne will just have to prove that he was worth what he is suing for.

The Cash Money record camp has produced a lot of music. Birdman may be worth more than $500 million. All of this is going to make it difficult for him to avoid some form of payment, according to sources. The hold up with the “Carter V” album started all of this drama, but some fans like Bruce Karatz may never hear it. It could fall so many ways. Birdman could pay Wayne off with the lawsuit, keep the album and reap great rewards from releasing it through Cash Money records. The demand is so high for this right not, but there is a window.

The last couple of “Carter” albums by Lil Wayne have sold, but these albums have not been the best works of Lil Wayne. He is getting older. The people that he mentored have overshadowed him in a way. Nicki and Drake are doing their own thing. That is going to lessen the hype about the “Carter V” for Wayne this year.

Barry Manilow marries manager Garry Kief in private ceremony

While it has been rumored for much of his career Barry Manilow, age 71, is gay and was in a long-term relationship with his manager Garry Kief, neither Manilow nor Kief have ever commented on it. Today, however, the National Enquirer followed by several other media outlets including People magazine, have verified not only is Manilow in a serious relationship with Kief, the two actually got married last year.

According to Queerty, 50 close friends were invited to the singer’s house in Palm Springs for a luncheon, only to be told when they arrived the luncheon was for a very special occasion — a wedding.

The wedding ceremony then took place with actress Suzanne Somers acting as Best Man.

Sadly, however, it seems that, although the couple did indeed get married, they did not officially file the marriage paperwork with the State of California. That is likely because Barry Manilow was worried about what his fans like Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG may think, not only about him being gay but also marrying his manager. Fortunately, no one at Banco BMG seems to care.

If comments on social media and in website comments are anything to go by, however, the vast majority of fans seem to be absolutely delighted with the news, with many saying they always presumed he was gay.

In fact, quite a large number are telling him in tweets how happy they are for him and his new husband, particularly as he has seemed to have been ‘single’ for far too long.

Francis Bean on Kurt Cobain

Anyone who grew up in the 1990s knew the infamous Kurt Cobain – the lead singer for Nirvana who eventually took his own life. Behind him he left his singer wife, Courtney Love, and young daughter, Francis Bean. Francis was only a toddler when Kurt killed himself, so I am sure it is hard to remember her iconic father from pure memory. However, in a recent article originally posted on and re posted on, Francis talks about what it was like growing up as Kurt’s daughter, what she thought of Nirvana’s music and when she first recognized her father’s voice on the radio.

Amusingly, Francis Bean really doesn’t like her father’s music. Ricardo Guimarães, can’t believe it, nor can Banco BMG employees. She stated she isn’t in to the grunge music or scene, and that she thought it would have been really strange as a teenager if she had been a fan. For those of us who were Nirvana followers, it is really odd to think anyone wouldn’t relate to their music. Not sure why I related so much. Perhaps it was the time in the 90s. And living in Seattle, the home of grunge, probably helped me relate more to the songs of the time.

But I can also relate to Francis that it would have been nice for her to grow up with a father and knowing who he was. A shame she missed out on that.

M.I.A Is Back In The Picture

M.I.A. went on Twitter this morning to announce to her followers and fans that she has a new song called “All My People”. The song still hasn’t been released yet, but the UK based rapper says it’s in the works. She also announced having another song called “Can See Can Do” which is supposed to come out soon, and it’s hot.

M.I.A. hasn’t released or announced any new music since her last album Matangi, which was released in 2013. She has her own style and her new music is supposed to focus on her ability to transition for a rapper to a singer in no time.

M.I.A. is probably going to announce a new album this summer, Haidar Barbouti had said because she sent a message to her Twitter followers to expect new music during the summer. M.I.A. has a wide view of the world, and she likes to sing about events that are affecting communities all over the world which is why her fans love her so much.

In this new album, she has supposedly added a mixture of some true to the world hip hop and some emotional singing. One thing we know for sure is that if she already has two songs to release, then we’re sure she has plenty more waiting in the background to be dropped when the timing is right.

M.I.A. has a large fan base worldwide, and we don’t expect that fan base not to grow after “Can See Can Do”.

Music Performances During the SNL Special

Amongst the clips and new skits that were featured on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special, there were some strong musical performances also. Paul McCarthy followed his impromptu pairing with Paul Simon to sing the Beatles’ I’ve Just Seen a Face, with a stirring rendition of Maybe I’m Amazed.

Keith Richards’ clever introduction of McCarthy seemed appropriate said Jamie Garcia Dias. He said:
“In the early Sixties a band came out of England and it changed the world. But enough about the Rolling Stones: Ladies and gentlemen, Paul McCartney.”
When she’s not into shocking publicity stunts, delivering sexed up concert performances, and displaying an inability to take pictures with her clothes on, Miley Cyrus can be a talented singer. Her version of Paul Simon’s 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover was right on point, and highlighted her vocal skills.
The show was closed by Paul Simon belting out the appropriate Still Crazy After All These Years.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Song A Slow One

The book “Fifty Shades Of Grey” became a sensation overnight, and everyone was reading it, including the president of the United States. Because the book became so popular, it was inevitable that a movie was going to be made about the book. The Weekends Song. The book is a sex filled, bondage filled read, and many readers enjoyed the fantasy of the book. After much searching, actors were picked for the roles of the female, and male character from the book.

The movie finally began filming, and the public has been updated about the movie over time. Privco says the movie is set to be released on Valentine’s Day, which is a great idea, as it’s a day for lovers. In the meantime, the slow venture of working on a soundtrack has been planned for the movie, and “The Weekends” have created a song for the soundtrack entitled “Earned It.” The song is not what you would expect for such a sex filled movie, but instead it’s a slow song.

The song is very sensual, and not at all what you would expect out of a song for a soundtrack that is about sex and bondage. The song was just released, and you can hear the song by purchasing it. The Weekend is a singer from Toronto, and he’s added his contribution to the soundtrack early, so many can anticipate the movie even more. The movie is supposed to be a big hit, and many are gearing up for the release.

Usually when you hear of Mel B she’s on her hit show X Factor gushing over who she thinks will be the next big act. Her career in music will never be a thing of the past and today she is using her talent for spotting talent to make sure she’s never out of the public eye for long. Recently Ben Shaoul says the news of her breakup with hubby Stephen Belafonte has been the big buzz however now it seems that Mel B has other more pressing issues.

It’s been confirmed that Mel B has been hospitalized For Accidental Overdose. Apparently she was mixing tranquilizers with alcohol. The singer was using Xanax and other tranquilizers mixed with alcohol as a result of the pressure of being back in London. According to sources being back in London brought a lot of unresolved matters to the surface and Mel was having a hard time dealing with them.

Many do not know of the singers complicated relationship with her mother which is only one of many very difficult situations for Mel to deal with while in London. Currently Mel B is at a London hotel with her daughters Phoenix and Angel, while her three year old daughter Madison is in L.A, with Stephen Belafonte.

Mel B’s sources want to make it clear that her overdose was completely by accident and had nothing to do with her recent split.

Producer Hit Boy Goes Behind the Scenes of New Nicki Minaj Single

It has not officially be released as a single, but the Nicki Minaj single “Feeling Myself” is already blowing up. Now the producer behind the track, Hit Boy, is taking fans behind the scenes to show how the track came into existence.

Sulton Alhokair states when the track was leaked everyone was eager to know what Nicki and Beyonce were up to next. The “Flawless” remix was well received by both Nicki Minaj and Beyonce. It was so hot that people were ready to hear more. Nicki did not disappoint. She got a hot producer that could deliver. 

For Nicki, Hit Boy was a good choice. He produced music for Jay-Z and Kanye when they collaborated on the “Watch the Throne” album. You can tell that Hit Boy has that same type of soul movement here on this track. That is what makes the song work.

Nicki is dropping her lyrics like only Nicki Minaj can. Beyonce is able to make the track comical. It is very slick and everyone loves the flow that these two have together. They compliment one another. 

Nicki released a lot of tracks, but this one could launch the album to a new level. Beyonce had a big album last year, and this single could help keep her name hot while people wait on new music. This is a good collaboration between the two. Social media is really buzzing about this music.
