Former ‘X Factor’ contestant Rebecca Ferguson has confirmed she will not be performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month, because she is uncomfortable with the song that had been chosen for her.

Last week Ferguson confirmed she had been invited to perform at the ceremony and said she would accept the invitation on the condition that she be allowed to perform Billie Holiday’s ‘Strange Fruit’.

Green Man 2016 - Live Review


With August's festival calendar seemingly busier than any other month, those of us with a persuasion to stand in a field watching live music are spoilt for choice. While V Festival might be the most corporate and therefore populist, the more discerning fan of both music and the arts in general would probably be found elsewhere. Such as Green Man for instance. Situated on the Glanusk Park estate in Crickhowell to the eastern point of the Brecon Beacons, it prides itself on being one of the most unique festivals around. Having grown from a capacity of just 300 people when it started in 2003 to the 20,000 revellers here to party this weekend, it's become a festival season highlight even with such a saturated market.

What also sets it apart is the stellar line-up organisers Fiona Stewart and Ben Coleman regularly pull out of the bag, and this year's edition was no exception. With the "sold out" signs hoisted long before this weekend, its reputation for putting quality control first speaks for itself. While its picturesque setting and heavy focus on locally sourced organic produce also render it a cut above the standard festival fare of greasy burgers and warm Carling where daily nourishment is concerned.

Indeed, the only thing that cannot be guaranteed is the weather but then this is the British summer time, right? Right. So without further ado, having acquired our passes and pitched up, Contactmusic are immediately drawn to the impressive bill taking place on the Far Out Stage this Thursday evening. Flamingods experimental take on psychedelic world music and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's full throttle sonic assault prove to be particular highlights. So much in fact that headliners Wild Beasts actually seem unsure about following either act on stage and play a surprisingly muted set of material mostly lifted from new record 'Boy King' instead.

Having first opened its doors in 2003, the festival has grown from housing just 300 people at its inaugural event to the 20,000 that will experience this year's sold out extravaganza. While music undeniably takes centre stage, it also boasts ten different areas where various activities from Babbling Tongues' spoken word line-up to Einstein's Gardens' scientific pursuit can be encountered by all and sundry. Also, its diverse range of locally sourced, mostly organic food and drink makes a distinct change from your average festival standard fare of burger and chips with a pint of warm Carling.

Taking place from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st August, the musical bill is also as diverse as one would expect from a festival that prides itself on being one of the least corporate and commercial events on the calendar. Indeed, looking through the line-up from top to bottom it's difficult to envisage a better one at any UK event this summer.

Singer Charlotte Church has defended Kim Kardashian’s naked selfie, saying it could be seen as 'quite a feminist' move. Earlier in the week Kardashian’s throwback pic was criticised by stars including Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz, but the reality star later insisted the pic was 'liberating' and it seems Church agrees.

Speaking at Southbank Centre's Women of the World festival, Church said "there are all different sorts of strands of feminism”, explaining that she’d become more ‘liberal’ in recent years.

Outspoken celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, George Clooney, Katie Hopkins and Charlotte Church have been condemned in a new article by a former special adviser to the Conservative Home Secretary Theresa May.

Cumberbatch, 39, famously used his starring role in ‘Hamlet’ at the Barbican to raise money and awareness of the Syrian refugee crisis earlier this year, at one point proclaiming “f*** the politicians”.

Under Milk Wood Trailer


Kevin Allen has dramatised and adapted Dylan Thomas's classic poem Under Milk Wood. The poem was initially created as a radio drama but was turned into a film by Andrew Sinclair in 1972, Now, director Kevin Allen updates the tale once more and offers viewers a 'radically surreal and erotic film'.

Instead of making a straight translation, the adaptation was written by Murray Lachlan Young, Michael Breen and Allen and takes more of an abstract look at the work.

The movie stars Welsh actor Rhys Ifans and singer - and recent political activist -Charlotte Church.

Robin Thicke's New Album Titled 'Paula': Ten More Cringe-Worthy Album Titles


Robin Thicke Paula Patton Limp Bizkit Kid Rock Crispin Glover Mariah Carey Will Smith Westlife Charlotte Church Cher Fall Out Boy

In perhaps the most audacious and downright ridiculous move the music business has witnessed in the last few years, singer Robin Thicke has announced his new album will carry the title of Paula, which by some strange coincidence just happens to be the name of his estranged wife- actress Paula Patton.

Thicke and Patton at 56th Grammy AwardsThicke and Paula in more happy circumstances.

To say such a public declaration of love is cringe-worthy would be an understatement, it is such a trite attempt at reconciling with his wife that is seems like something straight out of Spinal Tap. You can imagine the album title sitting quite comfortably alongside the likes of Smell The Glove and Shark Sandwich. As if that wasn’t irksome enough, Thicke’s debut single from the album is entitled "Get Her Back” and it sees the ageing crooner positively straining to exude as much heartfelt sincerity as he can before he gives himself a heart attack.

Inherently Sexist Music Industry V Charlotte Church - Can She Make A Difference?


Charlotte Church Miley Cyrus Annie Lennox Sinead Oconnor

Charlotte Church seems willing to take on one of the biggest businesses in the world as she denounces the "culture of demeaning women" in the contemporary music industry. The 27-year-old singer made her comments as she delivered the keynote speech for the John Peel Lecture.

Having suffered the very same fate she accuses the music industry of inflicting on young female artists, Church has emerged as a popular voice of reason in a spectrum clearly lacking reason and forethought.

Miley Cyrus’s increased sexualisation of herself, and inanimate objects like foam fingers and wrecking balls, has catalysed the concern regarding an underlying culture of sexism and exploitation.

Once a puppet, with her own sexuality out of her control and a musical career that involved exploitation and sexism, Charlotte Church certainly speaks from experience when she talks of the dangers of hyper-sexualisation in contemporary pop music.

Charlotte ChurchCharlotte Church's speech was eloquent and well recieved

The speech was broadcast at midnight on Tuesday 15th on BBC Radio 6, and was made as part of the John Peel Lecture on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. The eloquent address picked out modern phenomena and highlighted the perils of using sex to sell music, especially in a video medium.
