Nas Calling Rap Peers to 'Get More Real'

August 18, 2008 09:46:48 GMT


Rapper Nas has recently shared his thought about how hip hop lyrics should sound. He says that though most rappers have a luxurious life, they should not highlight their jet-set life in their verses. In a statement, he says, "When you first get into the music business, you're excited to be there, you want to make records that everybody's loving. But, after you've got years in the game, you wanna give people the real side of you, show people some character."

Furthermore, Nas also says that the rappers should not forget about the unfortunates. According to him, they should write more songs focusing on the real life where many people out there experience harsh things. "Life is good; there's yachts, there's nice cars, there's movie roles. We overcame... but, in the middle of all that... you can't forget about the ones that didn't make it with us. Life is good, but that still doesn't erase all the horror out here," says Nas.

August 18, 2008 09:37:52 GMT


Taking the fall of the success for her hit "I Kissed a Girl", Katy Perry has to endure criticism from her own parents. Instead of getting praised, the daughter of evangelical Christian preachers is deemed "shameful and disgraceful" with the lyrics of the song that promotes "sin".

Speaking to DailyMail.co.uk, Perry's mom, Mary Hudson said, "I hate the song. It clearly promotes homosexuality and its message is shameful and disgusting." She added that this is no longer a secret, saying, "Katy knows how I feel. We are a very outspoken family and she knows how disappointed her father and I are. I can't even listen to that song. The first time I heard it I was in total shock. When it comes on the radio I bow my head and pray."

'Voltron' Moves Forward After a Turnaround

August 18, 2008 09:32:11 GMT


Good news is rushing towards "Voltron". Despite allegedly being ditched by Fox-based New Regency Pictures, the feature film project about a giant mecha robot protecting the Earth has been said to be picked up by Relativity Media.

By that, it means that Relativity will both finance as well as produce the live-action movie which has been developed since 2004. Though financially "Voltron" will be made with a much reduced budget, the Justin Marks-scripted film reportedly will go on forward using "the type of cost-effective technology employed in films" like the one utilized for "300".

The speculation of him not directing the project has been ignited through Latino Review's interview with the man behind "Alien vs. Predator" and video game adaptation "Resident Evil".

Coming to talk about his other action thriller project "Death Race", the 43-year-old filmmaker hinted on the probability of him tackling the film. "I had some what fun making this movie and I firmly believe this is the best, most spectacular car action I've ever seen in a film, I don't know if I'll ever do another car movie after this because I really feel like we pushed it to the max and the only other car movie I'll do is maybe a sequel to this," so claimed Anderson.

Artist of the Week: Amy Macdonald

August 18, 2008 08:26:34 GMT


From an ordinary girl with no genes in music talent, Amy Macdonald worked things up to become one of the most successful female singers in her hometown of Scotland. She has also conquered several other European territories, including U.K. that bowed down to her debut album, "This is the Life". In January this year, the album knocked over Radiohead's "In Rainbows" and has sold over 600,000 copies ever since.

She has been signed to Vertigo, toured relentlessly, performed on the same stage with prominent female artists such as Amy Winehouse and Duffy and met the idols that inspired her to jump on the industry at the first place. A self-proclaimed Travis fanatic, she draws inspiration from simplicity. "I find inspiration in the simplest things," she told AceShowbiz.com. "Being at home with my friends and family and doing normal everyday activities usually inspires me to write." And that can come just from anywhere, even while sitting in a bedroom staring at a poster on the wall.

Daniel Radcliffe to Bare All in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'


August 18, 2008 05:03:28 GMT


Having to disrobe for his London's West End performance in 2007, young English actor Daniel Radcliffe is going to bare all once again. This time, the 19-year-old is stepping up the challenge by stripping down in the next installment of a "Harry Potter" film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows".

Though confessing that he originally thought he would be wearing at least a trouser for the revealing scene, the boy wizard's depicter noted that appearing without any fabric covering his skin isn't worrying him at all. "At first I thought I'd have pants (underwear) on for the scene. Apparently not," said Radcliffe adding that his "Equus" play has prepared him for this naked scene. "But I've sort of done that before on stage. It's all old hat now, really."

Amy Winehouse Panned and Hailed at 2008 V Festival


August 18, 2008 04:47:47 GMT


Music festivals can hardly escape eccentricity especially when it involves Amy Winehouse as the featured artist. The singer headlined the V Festival at both Weston Park, Staffordshire and Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex on August 16 and 17 respectively, only to be booed and hailed.

Winehouse, gracing the main stage, arrived 20 minutes late on day one and sported messy appearance. Booed by the audience, her performance too was deemed wobbly, since after her arrival she spent few minutes on the stage doing nothing but gazing at the crowd. She then greeted them with, "Hello, alright?" before moving on with her hits. According to NME, the delay of her set was caused by her helicopter being held-up.
