Morrissey Working On New Novel & Album

Morrissey123It looks like Morrissey has caught a bit of the ol’ writing bug. After releasing his autobiography last year, Morrissey is already hard at work on his first novel, and getting ready to record a new album. In many ways, he says, writing is more satisfying than the  music industry.

“It’s all, now, solely a question of marketing,” Morrissey answered in a Q&A with True To You earlier this month, “All success stories are safe and dreary, and you will never be taken by surprise by a hit song that sounds out of place. This is not just my view but the view of everyone I know.”

When asked about the new album, Morrissey noted that he’s already named one track after his favorite city, Istanbul. He even hinted at a David Bowie collaboration that sadly, may never be.

“A producer (Tony Visconti), who is a very close friend of David Bowie, tried to get both Bowie and I together to do our version of ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,’ with David doing the deep Bill Medley parts, and me doing the Bobby Hatfield shrieks,” he said. “I loved this idea, but David wouldn’t budge. I know I’ve criticized David in the past, but it’s all been snot-nosed junior high ribbing on my part. I think he knows that.”

LMFAO Sued By Rick Ross

LMFAOYou just can’t have a bit of success anymore without someone suing you. Rick Ross and and Jermaine Jackson have filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against LMFAO over similarities between the band’s “Party Rock Anthem” lyrics and Ross’ song, “Everyday I’m Hustling.”

A lawsuit filed in Florida federal court states, “The use of Hustlin’ in ‘Party Rock Anthem’ is readily apparent, despite the slight change from ‘Everyday I’m hustlin’ …’ to ‘Everyday I’m shufflin’…” and constitutes, inter alia, the creation of an unauthorized derivative work.” The lawsuit goes on, “The phrase is so important to the success of ‘Party Rock Anthem,’ that LMFAO launched a highly successful clothing line, Party Rock Clothing, that features the phrase on T-shirts and other clothing items.”

You can read the full court document here, and listen to the two songs below. Continue reading ‘LMFAO Sued By Rick Ross’

Beyonce’s “XO” And The Challenger Disaster

BEYONCEOkay, we’ve got to at least mention this Beyonce-NASA beef.

Beyonce’s new release, her self-titled “visual album,” includes a song called “XO,” which incorporates audio from a NASA spokesman speaking directly after the devastating 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, in which the shuttle exploded shortly after liftoff, killing all seven people onboard.

In the sample, which starts the song, NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt says, “Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation…Obviously a major malfunction.”

Both NASA and representatives of the astronauts’ families have been highly critical of the use of the sample.

“We were disappointed to learn that an audio clip from the day we lost our heroic Challenger crew was used in the song ‘XO,’” said June Scobee Rodgers, widow of Challenger Space Shuttle Commander Dick Scobee. “The moment included in this song is an emotionally difficult one for the Challenger families, colleagues and friends. We have always chosen to focus not on how our loved ones were lost, but rather on how they lived and how their legacy lives on today.”
