Rolling Stones stars Sir Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts poke fun at themselves in this sketch to promote the live comeback of comedy troupe Monty Python. Jagger ironically says, Monty Python? Are they still going? Who wants to see that again? They're a bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money, which references criticism the rockers face for still touring in their 70s. Monty Python's string of reunion shows start on Tuesday (01Jul14) at London's 02 Arena. Shown on YouTube. - Tuesday 1st July 2014

The song, which includes lyrics like: "When tears come streaming down your face/ When you lose something you can't replace/ When you love someone and it goes to waste/ Could it be worse?" made for a pointed tribute to the tragedy.

Jason Priestley Dishes Dirt On Divas And Former Roomie Brad Pitt In Tell-All Memoir

Jason Priestley has released a tell-all memoir, Jason Priestley: A Memoir, which among detailing the 90210 actor's thoughts on fame and family, dishes the dirt on celebrities that he's encountered during his long career in the spotlight.

20 Feet From Stardom Review


Extraordinary

Entertaining and uplifting, this Oscar-winning documentary tells the unknown story of the back-up singers who made classic records so memorable. Packed with lively, engaging people and fantastic music, the film also offers a sharp look at the music industry over the past 60 years in parallel with the fight for civil rights in America.

In the 1950s, background singers were usually white girls who read sheet-music perfectly. But they were quickly replaced with black artists who learned their craft in churches and could improvise harmonies with the lead singers. Suddenly, pop songs were infused with passion and life, as a handful of unknown singers performed backing vocals on virtually every classic hit since then. With their powerhouse voices and larger-than-life personalities, most have also tried to find success as solo artists. Others prefer to stay in the shadows.

For example, even though established stars acknowledge that she has more talent than any of them, Lisa Fischer prefers the quiet life out of the spotlight. Other belters like Merry Clayton, Tata Vega and Claudia Lennear can be heard on hundreds of timeless classics and are known throughout the industry, but never managed to get their solo careers off the ground. Judith Hill is a young artist who does soaring backing work while waiting for her own music to take off. And Darlene Love is the exception who managed both long background and solo careers.

The 70 year-old rocker bluntly told THR that a memoir wasn't something he'd want to make money from: "If someone wants to know what I did in 1965, they can look it up on Wikipedia without even spending any money," he said. "I think the rock'n'roll memoir is a glutted market," Jagger revealed, adding "I'd rather be making new films, making new music, be touring."

Muscle Shoals - International Trailer


When Rick Hall opened up his record studio FAME Studios in the small town of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, it became something of a rock 'n' roll myth when some of the finest music ever written began to pour out of it. Hits from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Percy Sledge, Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding became international, and Hall even managed blur the distinction between white and black a little as his all-white session group, The Swampers, became deeply respected among the funk and soul artists. After the session group separated themselves from Hall, some of them set up their own studio, the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, and became the Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section. From here, musicians began to shine their brightest as The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan all left that town as legends as if enchanted by the beauty of Muscle Shoals.

Kristen Stewart Earns $500,000 For Charity After Spending 15 Minutes Alone With Middle Eastern Prince


Kristen Stewart Harvey Weinstein Sir Paul McCartney Mick Jagger Bruce Springsteen Chris Rock Billy Joel Adam Sandler

Kristen Stewart managed to earn half a million dollars in only 15 minutes, and if that wasn't impressive enough, the money she made was donated straight to charity. The Twilight star caught the attention of an unnamed Middle Eastern Prince, who was so taken with the actress that he forked out the huge sum for just 15 minutes of her time.

Kristen Stewart
Just $500K can buy you 15 minutes with Kristen Stewart

According to film producer Harvey Weinstein, Kristen was helping to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy when Weinstein was approached about spending some one-on-one time with Kristen by the mysterious, ultra-rich Middle Eastern monarch. Initially dismissing the requests, Kristen soon caught wind of what was happening and was actually willing to meet with the high-paying Prince, leading Weinstein to broker a deal to arrange the meet-up. Sounds seedy doesn't it?

The jacket, which was expected to reach between £8,000 and £12,000 at a Derbyshire auction, was passed from Lennon to Jo Jo Johns, the band's former PA, after she acquired it after a 1971 clear-out of Lennon's house, reports BBC News. Johns then gifted the teal long blazer-style garment to her friend Tony Goddard as a birthday present and it was Goddard who chose to set the item now after 25 years of displaying it in his home.

Friday 26th July 2013: 70 years of planetary life for the illustrious Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger as he celebrates becoming a septuagenarian. After an energetic Glastonbury performance back in June and a whole host of rock 'n' roll activities - not least dinner with Nick Clegg - hitting the headlines, The Stones have shown that they can still capture the interest of the media and convert a tonne more young fans for themselves despite having formed 51 years ago in 1962.

After Glastonbury there was no time to sit down, hang up the bandanas and nestle into a future filled with colostomy bags and porcelain dentures. Instead, the band looked forward to two more mega headline sets in London's Hyde Park on 6th and 13th July to mark the close of their 50th anniversary tour and record some live tracks.

The Rolling Stones At Hyde Park: The Rockers Have Plenty More To Offer


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Mick Taylor Charlie Watts Ronnie Wood

It sounds frankly ridiculous to suggest the Rolling Stones should be taken seriously, though thanks to the ageism levelled at the band in recent months you would have been forgiven for assuming Mick Jagger was going to be wheeled on-stage at Glastonbury burning £20 notes and playing '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' over, and over, and over, and over.

Of course, Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts made a mockery of the sceptics and delivered one of the most explosive and entertaining Glastonbury sets in years. The Sunday papers were awash with five-star reviews, greatest hits albums flew off the shelves, everyone LOVED the Stones again - but Hyde Park was still to come.

Delighting 65,000 fans in London on Saturday (July 6), The Stones just about managed to clutch onto their tag as the world's greatest rock n' roll band with an unstoppable setlist that included 'Paint It Black,' 'Gimmie Shelter,' 'Sympathy for the Devil,' 'Midnight Rambler' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want.'

Mick Jaggers Hair Is Auctions For £4k – 4x More Than Keith Richards’


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones Keith Richards

A measly lock of Mick Jagger’s hair has been sold for an incredible £4,000. That would be ridiculous enough, but the news is: it was sold for around 4 times more than his bandmate, Keith Richards’ hair.

According to The Guardian, the Rolling Stone's former girlfriend Chrissie Shrimpton sold the hair to raise money for the Changing Faces charity, which works with people who have suffered facial disfigurements. A set of handwritten lyrics by British singer David Bowie for his song "The Jean Genie" also sold for £18,750 at the auction where a guitar owned by rock group Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page also sold for £26,250 alongside other music, film and entertainment memorabilia. Jagger recently played Glasto with The Stones, which will have no doubt upped the price of his product. "Festivals are great to be at, but not always the easiest things to play," he told the Radio Times before performing. "You've got to really work at that bit, but I think it's going to be a lot of fun. I've been working hard."

The band were responsible for one of the biggest crowds seen at the Pyramid Stage, where they headlined the festival on the Saturday night. They were on top form, giving the swelled audience all the hits they were craving. And all this while Jagger approaches his 70th birthday this month. Ridiculous. 70!

The weather forecast for the Glastonbury Festival this weekend does not look brilliant: expect a lot of cloud. However, those visiting the Glastonbury Festival this year may be pleased (or rather not depending on your predisposition) to hear the traditional mud is likely to be back. Around 135,000 people attend the festival annually and this year is no exception. The festival site, located near the Somerset village of Pilton, opened its gates for early goers. Most slept in their cars overnight lying in wait to get a decent (probably on higher ground) site to set up camp.

Mick Jagger's Obama Jibe Met With Boos During Washington Gig

Mick Jagger's recent quip about the ongoing Edward Snowden scandal during a concert in Washington D.C. didn't go down quite as well as he'd hoped, with his comment about President Barrack Obama listening in on the concert being met with jeers from the crowd.

The band were performing at the Verizon Center in the capital on Monday night (June 24), with Jagger taking a pop at the on-going NSA surveillance scandal at the beginning of the concert. Luckily the rest of the performance wasn't as awkward. The frontman was chatting with the crowd whilst the rest of the band warmed up behind him, discussing past concerts in the capital and how former presidents and first ladies had come down to their shows in the past. He went on to jest, “I don’t think President Obama is here tonight, but I’m sure he’s listening in,” but few people managed to see the funny side as his comments were met largely with jeers. You can watch the video - courtesy of CBS News - below and see what you think.

Mick Jagger

At the age of 69, there are a number of men out there who would just be happy having hair on their head, but when you're a follically endowed as Mick Jagger then you can afford to give away some of your locks, and that's just what the dinosaur rocker is planning on doing.

Jagger plans on placing some of his locks up for auction at the British auction house Bonhams, who will place the locks of hair up for auction on July 3. Bonhams announced on their website that strands of Jagger's hair, cut from his head during the early 1960's, has been put up for auction by Chrissie Shrimpton, who dated Jagger before the Stone's heyday in the late 60's. The website says that the locks should fetch between $2,300 and $3,100 when it goes up to auction next month.

The auction house goes on to mention that Lot 20711 was first collected by Shrimpton's grandmother without Chrissie’s knowledge during a to the Shrimpton family's country estate. The auction house wrote on their website “Apparently, on her grandmother's death, the hair passed to Chrissie's aunt and when she died, the hair was returned to Chrissie by a cousin taking care of personal effects.”

Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Brian Jones Keith Richards

Tickets for The Rolling Stones' concert at Hyde Park this summer has sold out in just three minutes. According to The Telegraph, 65,000 tickets for show - part of Hyde Park's British Summer Times gigs - were completely sold out by 9.03am on Friday morning (April 5, 2013).

The Stones will play in London just days after they headline the Saturday night of the Glastonbury Festival on June 26. It's 44 years after the legendary rockers last played at Hyde Park in 1969, just two days after guitarist Brian Jones was found dead at his home in Hartford, East Sussex. As ever, the band were accused of exploiting fans with overpriced tickets and the cheapest for the Hyde Park show were £95.00. Many were priced at £299 while ticket marketplace Viagogo has already begun selling tickets for £1,097 each. A place in the coveted "Diamond Circle" area will cost you around 2,500.

"It seems like yesterday," guitarist Keith Richards told the BBC of the last time his group played Hyde Park, "It's going to be a great summer, man.All the gigs we haven't done or wanted to redo are popping up." At the original gig, Mick Jagger famously wore a white dress on stage and read a Percy Bysshe Shelley poem dedicated to Jones. Thousands of butterflies were released into the air.

David Bowie And Mick Jagger Found In Bed Together, Naked…


David Bowie Mick Jagger

It’s just headline gold; David Bowie and Mick Jagger getting found in bed together, by Bowie’s wife, completely naked. Unfortunatley, it didn’t happen this morning, last night, or even this decade… or even last decade. It actually happened in 1973, and there was nothing sexual in it. It wasn’t a sexual day.

“My assistant was laughing in the kitchen when I got home,” Angie Bowie – the singers’ ex-wife - explained to The Sun. “She said, ‘You won’t believe this. David and Mick Jagger’. I went upstairs and banged on the door and said, ‘Morning! Ready for breakfast boys? I walked into the bedroom and David was there with all these pillows and duvets on top of him and on the other side of the bed was Mick’s leg sticking out,” Angie continued. “I said: ‘Did you guys have a good night?’ They were so hungover they could hardly speak. I took pity on them.” Bowie recently returned from his lengthy spell of musical silence with two well received singles that came out of the blue.

Is The Cat Out Of The Bag? Rolling Stones To Headline Coachella Festival 2013?

Are The Rolling Stones lined up to headline Coachella Festival in 2013?

It looks as though the people that make the band’s official iPhone app may have just secretly leaked details of their plans for 2013. On Friday (December 14, 2012), the band’s app had details of a performance on April 12, 2013, at Indio, at the Coachella Festival, NME reports. Although the date was later removed, in the age of the screen grab, there’s no stopping news like that form going viral.

The last time the band performed at a festival was back in 2007, when they played at the Isle of Wight Festival and the fans of the band who have a ticket for Glastonbury Festival 2013 will probably still be holding out hope that Jagger & co. will still be announced as one of the UK festival’s main acts, too.

Mick Jagger Breaks Silence On Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger'


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones David Letterman Maroon 5 Christina Aguilera Adam Levine Kesha Cher Lloyd

Mick Jagger has finally broken his silence on the subject of Maroon 5's number one hit 'Moves Like Jagger' and revealed that he didn't get paid anything for his reference in the song.

The Rolling Stones lead vocalist appeared for an interview on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and, to the viewers' amusement, produced a list entitled: 'Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years In Rock 'n' Roll'. On the list was a light-hearted dig at Maroon 5's song 'Moves Like Jagger' featuring Christina Aguilera, the video of which begins with footage of Jagger in his younger years and later shows singer Adam Levine trying out some of the famous dance moves. Jagger had written on his list that he had learned that "You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger." The music legend also drew laughs from his other advice which included, "Be considerate of other hotel guests - trash your room by 10 pm" and, "Before shouting 'Hi Seattle!' make sure you're in Seattle."

'Moves Like Jagger' is not the first number one hit that has referenced the star; he has also been mentioned in Ke$ha's 'TiK ToK' ('We kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger') and Cher Lloyd's 'Swagger Jagger'. 

Rolling Stones Celebrate 50th Anniversary At New York Show


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Jay Z

The Rolling Stones performed their first show in Brooklyn in almost fifty years, celebrating their (wait for it) fiftieth anniversary together.

The veteran rockers hit Brooklyn's Barclay Centre to run through their extensive back catalogue, with frontman Mick Jagger eager to reflect on how long it had been since the band were last on stage in the New York City borough. Jagger was also keen to mention (jokingly) how the band arrived to the new complex, with the singer referencing a clip taken from Brooklynite Jay-Z's forthcoming documentary, during which the rapper talks to an old lady while on the subway on his way to perform at The Barclays Arena. He jested with the crowd, saying, "It's great to be here in Brooklyn, in this great new arena," said Jagger. "We rode the subway here, I sat next to a guy named Jay Zed…I mean Jay-Z."

As was the case with the groups massively successful shows at London's O2 Arena last month, the band had a few surprises under their sleeves for the eager crowd, and as was the case in London, Mary J Blige joined the rockers on stage to belt out the hit 'Gimme Shelter.' The band also brought out band were also joined by blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr and the Trinity Wall Street Choir to perform on 'Going Down' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' respectively.

Florence Welch was the latest surprise guest to appear on stage with dinosaur rockers The Rolling Stones during their run of shows at The O2 in London, when the Florence and the Machine front-woman joined Jagger and co on stage during last night's performance (Nov 29).

Welch joined the rock veterans on stage for a rendition of the classic hit 'Gimme Shelter,' with R&B heroine Mary J Blige also joining the Stones on stage for a surprise duet during their performance earlier this week. The headlining slots at the O2 didn't stop their with the treats either, as Eric Clapton also came on stage with the Stones for a rendition of 'Champagne And Reefer', with the guitar-god having been rumoured to appear long before he took to the stage.

The second, star-studded performance of the week saw frontman Mick Jagger immediately address the fine the band received after the earlier performance after the show overran. According to NME, Jagger joked with the crowd about the incident at the start of the show, saying "We had to pay £100,000 because we went on too long. That's like... Ten seats."

Old Friends Join The Rolling Stones For 50th Birthday Concert


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Charlie Watts Bill Wyman Mick Taylor Mary J Blige Noel Fielding

Last night at London’s O2 Arena (November 25, 2012), The Rolling Stones were joined onstage by old friends and newer ones, as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. The current mainstays of the band, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts welcomed the band’s original bass player, Bill Wyman to play ‘It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It)’ and ‘Honky Tonk Women.’ Mick Taylor, who was a member of the band between 1969 ad 1974 also had his moment in the limelight once more, when he joined them for a version of ‘Midnight Rambler.’

Mary J Blige also performed with the band, helping them out with ‘Gimme Shelter’ and later tweeted “So much fun performing in London w/ the ‪@RollingStones! Congrats on your 50th anniversary!! The response to the show, from those that were there, has been overwhelmingly positive. The Mighty Boosh comedian Noel Fielding told the BBC “I think Keith played incredibly. Sympathy For The Devil...his lead on that was absolutely amazing” and – always one to admire an elaborate costume - added “Mick came out in a cape which - as always - has got to be a bonus.”

In the lead up to the opening night of these 50th anniversary dates, much of the discussion surrounding The Stones’ concerts has been centered on the extortionate ticket prices. Jagger didn’t ignore it, joking to those at the back “How are you doing up in the cheap seats? Except they're not cheap seats, that's the problem.” Hopefully, everyone was having such a wonderful time that they were able to see the funny side.

Bill Wyman And Mick Taylor Lined Up To Reunite With Rolling Stones For O2 Gig


Rolling Stones Bill Wyman Mick Taylor Mick Jagger Ronnie Wood Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones are set to perform a string of shows at London's O2 Arena next week, and have announced that as a special treat there will be two special guests appearing on stage with them in the shape of former Stones members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

Former Stones bassist Wyman and guitarist Taylor will appear on stage with the dinosaur rockers during their shows on Sunday 25th and Thursday 29th November. This will be the first time since 1974 since the two have shared the stage with the rest of the band, but hopefully Ronnie Wood wont feel too left out during the reunion.

The remaining members - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Wood – have been inviting the two former members back to work together again over recent years, however the shows at the O2 will mark the first time in more than three decades since they have performed live together. Both Wyman and Taylor were interviewed in the recent official 50th anniversary documentary Crossfire Hurricane, in which both former members talked intimately about their time with the band and their reasons for leaving it all behind. Wyman called it quits in December 1992 to concentrate on his own work and personal life, whilst Taylor left the band in 1974. In Crosstown Hurricane Taylor admitted that his heroin addiction was at the root of his leaving of the band.

Love Letter Showing A Softer Side To 1960s Mick Jagger To Be Auctioned


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger. What a rock and roll rebel that fella was back in the 60s, doing his sex talk all over his Rolling Stones band mates' filthy guitar licks, putting his really long tongue out at regular intervals, wearing genitalia-enhancing tight jeans. Truly, he was a sexual predator.

Or was he? Love letters that have been dug out and put into the public domain suggest that the once hirsute rocker had a tender, caring side away from his public persona. According to The Guardian, letters sent to Australia to Marsha Hunt, his lover, first child's mother and the inspiration for Jagger's controversial song ‘Brown Sugar’ show the star’s softer personality. Indeed, he opened up a lot in the letters, revealing his love for the literature he was reading at the time: "toying" through Nijinsky's diaries, reading about Navajo Indians, enjoying the poems of Emily "Dix" (Dickinson).

10 of the letters are being sold at Sotherby’s auction house on December 12th and carry an estimate of minimum $110,000. But why would the letters’ recipient be selling them? "I'm broke” was the blunt answer from Hunt. She added: "Anyone who has the impression that I have money knows nothing about me. I had friends who came to visit from Pennsylvania and there was no electricity in the house because the bill had been too high, I was kind of grooving it with a wood burning stove. One friend said, 'surely you've got something you could sell?'"
