Talking to the artists... Small festivals don't necessarily mean an inferior line-up as was more than proved at the quaint Beacons Festival 2013 in the Yorkshire Dales town of Skipton. We caught up with Ghostpoet before his Friday set (which was definitely a weekend highlight!) where he confessed that he'd 'changed in many ways and some of it may have been for the better and some of it not' over the last year but still doesn't think of himself as 'being successful'. He also talked about working with Melo-X and his fondness for documenting interesting cars on Instagram. Read the full interview here.
NYPC have abandoned their former moniker of New York Pony Club as they have gone through quite a rebirth since the departure of former band member Lou Hayter. 'We've taken what we've perceived as being the strongest elements of the previous two albums and tried to make them into something which is mature and progressive', Tahita Bulmer told us in an interview when we caught up with them to talk about their new self-titled album. She also didn't hesititate to tell all about NYPC's touring adventures - including their trip to the 'amazing' and 'unspoilt' Kazakhstan. Read the full interview here.
Kanye West will perform 'Black Skinhead' at the MTV Video Music Awards 2013.
MTV announced the news on Monday, confirming the Yeezus rapper will perform his Yeezus single Black Skinhead.
The hip-hop superstar first hit the VMA stage in 2004, playing a medley of singles from his debut album The College Dropout including Jesus Walks, All Falls Down and Through the Wire.
Kanye West's leaked conversation is making waves online.
Remember Kanye West's famous rant at the 2009 Video Music Awards? Of course you do, he hopped up on-stage and told Taylor Swift she was rubbish and that Beyonce was really good. Of course you do. On Wednesday, MTV announced the nominees for this year's show, though Gawker.com has uncovered something far more interesting.
In an audio the website says features Kanye West, the rapper rants about Taylor Swift and pop artist Pink while frequenting the Corner Bistro in Manhattan's West Village, sometime after the 2009 drama.
"I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn't say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I've, like, defended myself... I'm pushing the envelope! I wrote my fu**in' 'Run This Town' verse for a fu**in' month!" a man alleged to be Kanye is heard to say, "When I heard Eminem's verse on the Drake s**t, I went back and rewrote my s**t for two days.I canceled appointments to rewrite! I fu**in' care! You know what I'm saying? And that's what I'm saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé."
