Paul McCartney And Kanye West Enlist Rihanna For Latest Musical Collab "FourFiveSeconds"


Kanye West Sir Paul McCartney Rihanna

Remember that Paul McCartney/Kanye West collaboration they teased with the release of Only You last year? Well, it’s happening – this week saw the creative duo drop FourFiveSeconds – an acoustic offering in the vein of their previous track. FourFiveSeconds was made available on RihannaNow.com over the weekend.

Kanye West
Could the West/McCartney partnership evolve into a full album?

The track is an anti-negativity anthem in the same vein as West’s 2014 album Yeezus, with him and Rihanna providing all the vocals as McCartney backs them on piano. It’s a smooth track, and definitely should make it on your weekend playlist (maybe in between Kedrick Lamar’s I (Love Myself) and Chance the Rapper’s No Better Blues). It’s Kanye’s second crack at the acoustic, minimally-produced, no beat genre and we’re pretty into it.

Paul McCartney Reveals He's No Good At Video Games


Sir Paul McCartney

He was the hero of the 60s and 70s as one quarter of The Beatles and Sir Paul McCartney certainly hasn’t slowed down since the demise of the greatest British band of all time. If anything he’s branched out into even darker corners than he may have discovered with John, George and Ringo with his latest single, Hope, which accompanies the release of a new video shooter game, Destiny.

Finding Fela Review


Good

While the eventful life of Fela Kuti provides more than enough subject matter for a biographical documentary, award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney weakens the film with a second narrative strand that feels like another movie altogether. He did the same thing with last year's The Armstrong Lie, which compromised the Lance Armstrong scandal with clips from an abandoned glowing doc about his earlier comeback. This time, he has intercut Fela's story with a theatre group trying to mount a show about his life.

Born in 1938, Fela is considered one of the most important figures in 20th century Africa. As a pioneering composer and performer, he transformed Nigeria's musical landscape, all while standing up for human rights and criticising political corruption, often at considerable risk of retaliation from Nigeria's oppressive government. As a young man, he was influenced by jazz clubs he visited in London and Los Angeles, and returned to Lagos to start his own iconic venue, The Shrine. A lone voice against government corruption, he lived a communal life with countless wives, girlfriends and children, and he very nearly sabotaged his career with heavy drug use. But even with his death in 1997 at age 58, he challenged the Nigerian state propaganda machine, which had declared that Aids did not exist in the country.

This story is told with a superb wealth of archival footage, stills and interviews, letting Fela himself speak and sing as his life traverses the first 50 years of Nigerian independence. This is such a vitally important story of a seriously revolutionary man that it's utterly gripping. So it's rather frustrating that Gibney weaves it together with the project to tell Fela's story through a Broadway musical. The practice and performance clips offer dramatic recreations of events in Fela's life, putting his music in context, but the actual home movies and newsreel clips tell us a lot more.

A Hard Days Night [Remastered] Trailer


In 1964, black and white music comedy 'A Hard Day's Night' was released, starring the world's most famous rock band The Beatles. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr took to the big screen at the peak of what was commonly referred to as Beatlemania, but not to do your average music documentary. The movie shows the Liverpool lads' eventful trip from their hometown to London, encountering overexcited fans, dealing with Paul's very irresponsible grandfather, and going on a rather comical trip around the city in a bid to find Ringo after Paul's grandfather convinced him to wander off. Luckily enough, no problem was too serious and they eventually managed to hit the stage for a major concert to be televised for the movie.

Yoko Ono & Paul McCartney- Best Pals: They Can Drink Coffee And Watch Breaking Bad Together


Yoko Ono Sir Paul McCartney

Oh man – mates. Mates are great. I’ve got some mates, and I drink coffee with them and talk about Breaking Bad. But for the past million decades, or however long ago when people thought the Beatles were good, Yoko Ono and Paul McCartney haven’t been mates.

Paul McCartneyPaul McCartney holding a guitar

In fact, it’s been one of the most enduring public shoulder-chips to remain lodged firmly in place. The chip on Macca’s shoulder was always bigger, but now both of them seem to have shrunk, and the pair might even be seen in a north London café grabbing a fry up, or watching Thor: The Dark World in the cinema.

A week after Sir Paul McCartney's latest solo album, New, debuted, the brand new video for track 'Queenie Eye' premieres today (October 24, 2013). However, this isn't any old music video: the former Beatle has called on a few friends to help, with stars including Gary Barlow, Alice Eve, Kate Moss, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, James Corden and Jeremy Irons all featured.

The song is named after and draws inspiration from a childhood game McCartney used to play in Liverpool. "Queenie eye, queenie eye, who's got the ball? It isn't in my pocket. O-U-T spells OUT!" sang a young Macca and the same lyrics are called upon for Paul's latest, upbeat track that has been described by Q Magazine as "jaw-dropping."

Paul McCartney On Miley Cyrus And A New Crop Of Pop Stars: "Only Mildly Shocking"


Miley Cyrus Sir Paul McCartney One Direction

It’s hard to deny that Miley Cyrus is the talk of the town these days, but one person, who isn’t all that impressed, is Sir Paul McCartney. Not impressed by all the heat the young singer has been getting that is. McCartney is a respected name in the music business and has managed to maintain a near spotless reputation through the years, so he might know a thing or two about surviving in show business.

MIley Cyrus has McCartney's support.

After Miley’s twerk-tastic VMA performance from August, everyone and their grandmother rushed to condemn her for “corrupting the youth of America” and/or offered advice on cleaning up her image, protecting her dignity, etc. McCartney, on the other hand, provided a more level-headed opinion, saying in an interview with Sky News: "Come on, we’ve seen worse than that!"

Justin Timberlake Brings IHeartRadio Music Festival 2013 To A Lively Close


Justin Timberlake Miley Cyrus Joan Jett Kesha Sir Paul McCartney Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Music lovers at the iHeartRadio Music Festival last weekend (September 20th-21st 2013) were in for a treat as Justin Timberlake rounded off the event with a few new tunes.

It was a rather special set from the 'Suit and Tie' singer who has dealt well with the endless live shows and televised performances pretty much running through the whole year. He was introduced to the stage by undefeated welterweight boxer floyd mayweather who crowned him 'the heavyweight champion of music'; a prestigious title that his thrilled audience certainly didn't appear to dispute. As well as performing some timeless hits from 'Cry Me A River' to 'SexyBack' to 'Mirrors', JT unleashed some brand new tracks from 'The 20/20 Experience' follow-up, 'The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2'. He sang his most recent single 'TKO', as well as 'True Blood' and 'Only When I Walk Away'. Even aside from the music Justin was an act not to be missed, oozing with charisma as he owned the stage with his entertaining and often comedic dance routines.

Other notable performances from the weekend came from everyone's favourite controversy Miley Cyrus, who belted out hits such as 'Wrecking Ball' and 'We Can't Stop' wearing a customary revealing outfit; Joan Jett, who teamed up with Ke$ha in an unusual performance which celebrated her 55th birthday; and Paul McCartney, who was promoting his, quite literally, 'New' album set for release on October 15th.

The Beatles: On Air Live At The BBC - Volume 2 - Feature


Nearly twenty years since the release of The Beatles' chart-topping compilation album 'Live At The BBC' featuring radio performances from 1963 to 1965, producers Kevin Howlett and Mike Heatley have now compiled 'On Air Live At The BBC - Volume 2' featuring never-before-heard performances, banter and cover tracks.

There are 10 tracks which were never recorded for EMI and some which haven't been released at all; among them are covers of Chuck Berry's 'I'm Talking About You', 'Beautiful Dreamer' and different versions of previously heard covers including Ray Charles' 'I Got A Woman'.

Howlett and Heatley were truly spoilt for choice when it came to compiling this new collection, given that the world's most-loved band performed an incredible 275 shows on the radio throughout their musical journey in the 60s, appearing on 39 different shows in the year of their debut album release. The new compilation, re-mastered by Guy Massey and Alex Wharton, includes a detailed booklet and is set for release on November 11th 2013.

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.

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?

Retirement? No, "Everything's New Baby" - Paul McCartney's In Good Spirits


Sir Paul McCartney Beatles

To be Paul McCartney right now is to be a happy man; new album in the pipe and a new single – both called 'New'. The former Beatles man seems to have a newfound zest about him as he talked to WXRT Chicago.

Sir Paul McCartneySir Paul McCartney struts his stuff in Brooklyn

The title ‘musical legend’ doesn’t really get bestowed on many people, and if you’ve managed to achieve it, it probably means you’re quite old. For McCartney, his age nearly stopped him doing festivals because of “the kids”.

Paul McCartney Drops Surprise 'New' Single Ahead Of 'New' Album [Listen]


Sir Paul McCartney Beatles Mark Ronson Adele

Sir Paul McCartney has launched a fresh single from his forthcoming record, and has announced that his new album will be called just that; New. Thinks could get confusing for music journalists describing "Paul McCartney's new New Album," or his "new album New" but for now we'll focus on the exciting new release that has been sneakily dropped online, also called 'New.'

Paul McCartney
Sir Paul Teased Twitter Fans, Tweeting Words Related To 'New.'

Produced by Mark Ronson, the bouncy new song, 'New,' harks back to The Beatles sound with its marching piano chords, nostalgic harpsichord effect and lovesick lyrics. Of course, because it's had Ronson within 10 feet of it, it has a bulbous horn section but has been thankfully saved from the grating trumpet-plagued ubiquity of the producer's work of yesteryear.

Kendrick Lamar 'Control' Rap: The Best Responses From The Hip-Hop World


Kendrick Lamar Big Sean Mac Miller Pusha T Lindsay Lohan Sir Paul McCartney Sean Connery

Big Sean's new track 'Control' was only released on Tuesday but already the rap world is up in arms over guest rapper Kendrick Lamar's 3 minute verse in which he boasts, disses and namechecks other artists in order to make it sound like he's the undisputed big dog.

Kendrick Lamar
The Rap World Replies To Lamar.

Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Pusha T, Drake, A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, NaS, Eminem, Andre 3000 and Meek Millz are not even all the names spat out by Lamar as the rapper compares himself to a King, the Pope and Italian writer/politician Machiavelli. He also adds in Lindsay Lohan, Sir Paul McCartney and Sean Connery for good measure, just in case Hollywood or The Beatles' guitarist ever considers encroaching on his self-anointed rap lordship.

Paul McCartney Plays 'Yesterday' With Kronos Quartet At Outside Lands Festival

Outside Lands

Paul McCartney fans at the Outside Lands festival were given a real treat on Friday evening (August 9, 2013) with the Beatles legend performing with the string virtuosos, the Kronos Quartet. The quartet are perhaps best known for their work with Tom Waits, David Bowie, Bjork and even the poet Allen Ginsberg, but the strings perfectly complimented McCartney's hit Yesterday - a track usually backed only by the musician's idiosyncratic guitar work, though rarely played live.

Though the former Beatle continues to sell out shows around the globe, he has on occasions been guilty of failing to change up his set - something that he's rectified in the past year or so. At Outside Festival, he played the more obscure Fab Four tracks Lovely Rita and Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite, as well as Yesterday, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

Let It Be: The Beatles Broadway Musical Opens Despite Copyright Lawsuit


Beatles John Lennon Sir Paul McCartney George Harrison Ringo Starr

Having played in the West End last year, the Beatles musical Let It Be opened on Broadway last night (24th July) in the midst of an on-going copyright infringement lawsuit that has been filed by the creators of rival tribute show, Rain: A Tribute To The Beatles. The people behind Rain claim that Let It Be incorporates elements of their 2010-11 show, including musical arrangements of hits, hairstyles, similar Scouser banter, and a selection of 28 of the 31 songs that Rain brought to Broadway.

The Beatles Tribute Band
The Beatles Stage Tribute Band.

According to the New York Times, Peter Cane, a lawyer for Let It Be's producers, Jeff Parry and Annerin Productions, argued that the copyright claim was absurd. Speaking to the NY Times, Cane said "Let It Be is a tribute to The Beatles, not to the four guys who impersonate The Beatles. How do you monopolise the ability to present an impersonation of The Beatles? How many different ways can you really do it? The Beatles acted a certain way, they played certain notes, they spoke a certain way."

The couple started dating in May 2012 but separated earlier this year. It's come as something of a surprise when Levine proposed to Prinsloo over the weekend. It's certainly a romantic story with such a spontaneous demonstration of love. However, the singer's involvement with Behati is somewhat cliché.

Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Are PETA's 2013 Sexiest Vegetarians


Kristen Bell Bill Clinton Anne Hathaway Sir Paul McCartney

In an accolade of meat avoidance, Kristen Bell and fiancé Dax Shepard have been crowned animal rights activist PETA's sexiest celebrity vegetarians, in a campaign to spread the word about the benefits of cutting out meat. 32 year-old Bell, who's best known for her titular role in the Veronica Mars television series, revealed that she's been veggie since she was a teen: "I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with-dogs and cats, for example-from the animals on my plate, and I never really cared for the taste of meat." This isn't the first time she's been recognised by PETA for her dietary choices - in 2006 she was selected as their 'World's Sexiest Vegetarian' and now it seems she's lifting the crown again with her fiancé and father of her child, Dax Shepard.

Shepard spoke of the benefits of a vegan diet, after being encouraged to follow Bell's example by documentary Forks Over Knives, which advocates a plant-based diet: "I have fewer body aches, my skin looks better, I'm never starving, and I never need to ride the couch feeling completely full and disgusting" he explained to Playboy magazine when he was following a strict no-meat diet. However, it seems that it's only Bell who can truly feel proud of the title:"I'm really flattered to be named 'Sexiest Vegetarian' with ?@IMKristenBell, but sadly I can't accept in good conscience because I eat chicken," Shepard tweeted. In a shock for PETA, who had been using the publicity as part of their campaign to encourage more people to be vegetarian, Dax added: "I was vegan for a year, but that ended 6 months ago. I aspire to be more like ?@IMKristenBell, but I'm not there yet," he said in a follow-up tweet. Oops.

Billy Joel's Daughter At Centre Of Stalking Scandal - Billy Calls On Paul McCartney For Help


Billy Joel Alexa Ray Sir Paul McCartney

Billy Joel’s daughter Alexa Ray has been the victim of a deranged stalker, who has threatened the singer with more than 60 Facebook messages, containing elements of “pedophilia, sadistic-sexual behavior, violent physical assaults and murder.” Joel was so concerned about the stalker that he hired Paul McCartney’s private detective, to hunt down Sheryl Finley, 40 – the perpetrator of the oppressive behavior.

New York Post reports that 27 year-old Alexa was scared to leave the house, after the Minnesota woman stalked her and sent messages over a period of several months. A source told the Post that Alexa’s mother, Christie Brinkley, was also fearful for her daughter’s life. “Her mother, Christie Brinkley, was terrified that someone would harm her baby,” the source revealed. “Billy Joel was worried but focused.” According to the report, Billy hired a bodyguard to protect Alexa and also got in touch with old pal McCartney, who put him in touch with a Europe-based private security firm – not bound by the same legal restrictions as the police.

The stalker was tracked down in Austin, Minnesota, where she told law enforcement that the alleged rape and murder threats were not actions she wanted to carry out “during this life.” Finley had previously spent time in a mental institution in 2010. She reportedly remained optimistic that Alexa would not “object to meeting with her.”

Paul McCartney Confirms Boston Fenway Park Show


Sir Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney’s already got a few dates lined up, but he’s just announced one of his biggest ones of the year, after revealing that he’ll be playing Fenway Park this summer as part of what looks to be like a North American tour.

Rolling Stone magazine reports that McCartney will play at the ballpark on July 9th while its home baseball team, Red Sox, play an away game against the Seattle Mariners. It will be four years since McCartney played the venue, having last rocked it with two shows in August 2009. Tickets go on sale this Friday, and date has been added to a summer schedule that already includes three shows on May 4th, 6th and 9th in Brazil, as well as a festival slot at this year’s Bonnaroo, which takes place June 13th-16th. Additionally, the former Beatle already has a June 22nd date set in Warsaw, Poland, as well as dates in Italy on the 22nd and Austria on the 27th of the same month.

It marks a busy time for the veteran rocker, who has never truly stepped away from making and releasing music. He’s currently working on the follow up to last year's album of standards, Kisses on the Bottom, having recorded new songs with producer Mark Ronson.

Paul McCartney Late For Daughter Stella's Show - Former Beatle Enters With A Swagger


Sir Paul McCartney Stella Mccartney

Why Was Paul McCartney late to Stella’s fashion show? Well, we may never know but at least when he did decide to show up, he did so with an appropriate degree of style and swaggered like a catwalk star to his seat in the front row to check out Stella Mccartney’s latest Paris fashion show. Stella may be 41 years old but she wasn’t prepared to let the runway show commence until her daddy was in the house. When the former Beatle did show up, around half an hour later than the scheduled star, according to Associated Press, he was overheard to say “walk, walk, walk like a model” and sashayed over to his front row seat, joining U2s Bono for one of the best views in the house.

As for the show itself, Stella McCartney unveiled a ready-to-wear collection that relied on texture and sculpted shapes; classic British tailoring with its game well and truly raised. A reimagining of the pinstripe suit was a highlight of the show and “her signature remained relaxed, with soft silhouettes and circular cuts in silk duchess and silk cloquet jacquard.” Backstage, McCartney commented “I wanted a refresh in a classical way… Women have a masculine side and if you tap into that, you find another part of yourself."
