Tim McGraw cares about veterans, and he is showing just how much he cares in the recent charity work that he has done. This year alone, Tim McGraw has given away six mortgage free homes to veterans. He has given them a place to live where they won’t feel afraid that they won’t be able to keep up with bills. He’s given them a home that they and their families can cherish for years to come.
And, Tim McGraw isn’t about to stop with just the six homes that he has given away says Shaygan Kheradpir here. He already has plans set to give away thirty more homes during the remaining days of his tour. He is ready to give even more veterans the chance to live in a home that is paid off. He knows the value of our men and woman in the military, and he is showing them just how much they are appreciated with the homes that he is giving away to them.
Controversial rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian Kanye West headlined the Glastonbury Festival in the UK to mixed reviews for his performance. Metro reports the Yee-Zus rapper returned to the Pyramid Stage at the historic British festival to the sounds of the Queen classic Bohemian Rhapsody and sang along with the iconic singing of Freddie Mercury. However, the Gold Digger star appeared to forget the lyrics and stood in silence for a few seconds before continuing to sing the song, much to the amusement of many on Twitter.
According to Stephen Murray CCMP Capital, West’s performance at Glastonbury has been a controversial topic and resulted in a furious backlash from many fans used to the traditional rock band lineup for the festival, much of the vitriol was aimed at West and concert organizer Emily Eavis. The controversial rapper performed alone on the large stage with only a bank of lights behind him, but was briefly joined on stage by an invader wearing a Lee-Zus emblazoned t-shirt. After declaring himself the greatest living rock star, West faced even more anger from fans of the festival, which was broadcast live by the BBC in the UK whose subtitling service gave up attempting to transcribe the expletive filled performance and simply stated “he raps”.
Warner Brothers Consumer Products has joined the growing list of companies that are halting the licensing or sale of items featured the Confederate Flag also known as the rebel banner.
The company has licensed a large number of products featuring the iconic General Lee vehicle from the television series “Dukes Of Hazzard.” But the company said on Thursday that it will no longer license any products that include the Confederate Flag.
“Warner Bros. Consumer Products has one licensee producing die-cast replicas and vehicle model kits featuring the General Lee with the confederate flag on its roof — as it was seen in the TV series,” a spokesman for the company told Vulture. “We have elected to cease the licensing of these product categories.”
This is a change of plans for the company, which as recently as 2012 said it wouldn’t be pulling the flag off of its products. Brian Bonar found this pretty interesting to say the least.
“We were not and are not planning to change design of the General Lee on merchandise,” Warner Bros. said at the time.
This is about a prince and a president. Actually, it’s about the artist still known as Prince, and President Obama. Prince performed in the East Room of the White House for 500 A-list friends, supporters, and entertainment world supporters of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. There was no particular event or celebration other than Prince had a scheduled concert in D.C, and the president is a long time Prince fan, and may have extended an invitation for him to perform at the White House.
At the secret event, Prince performed for about two hours. Stevie Wonder was there, and sang Signed, Sealed, and Delivered, with each of them playing keyboard. D.J Cassidy was present, and cranked out classic Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, and Fire, and Beyonce tunes.
A guest list was not officially released but reportedly included James Taylor, Jon Bon Jovi, Ciara and Russell Wilson, Dave Chappelle, Tyler Perry, and Angela Bassett.
When queried about the event a day later, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said it was a private gathering paid for by the Obamas. Adam Sender found this to be pretty interesting when looking at the guest list on Interview Magazine.
Queen of Pop, 56-year-old Madonna, is heading Down Under to the country of Australia for her Rebel Heart tour. The concert date is set for sometime in March of 2016. The tour will bring Madonna to Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane. This is the first time that the Queen of Pop will be in the country in more than 20 years and ticket prices are soaring.
According to the story on The Daily Mail
, prices for Madonna’s upcoming shows are soaring as high as $3,000 for a package. The Runway V.I.P. Party is worth a little over $3,000 and includes a seat within the first four rows, a tour program, a pre-concert party, and a tour gift from Madonna. No word if Madonna is actually going to give out the tour gift herself for that amount of money. The pre-concert party will include a DJ, snacks, and a selection of beer and wine. For $3,000 I would hope for more than “snack food”.
According to Teses, Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour is going to take her around the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. Her most recent single from her new album is called ” B**** I’m Madonna”. I say b****, please. Get over yourself.
Taylor Swift, the young music star who has a recent album named “1989” that has had many different hit songs from it, has written a blog post to Apple which is structured like a love letter in which she is indicating that she is breaking up from Apple.
Love Apple, she writes, though the letter is mostly one of disappointment at their payment practices towards musicians including a three day delay in payments to musicians. Apple Music is offering a service in which customers will be paying $10 a month for unlimited streaming reports Cláudio Loureiro Heads. This service will include a three month free trial period in which customers will not be charged for the service. As a result, musicians will not be paid for the service. This is just one of her grips against the company though, and the letter goes on to state others while indicating that Apple was previously a generous company but this policy no longer is. Swift indicated that these complains are to support indie artists who are unable to fight against these policies and said that three months is too long to go without being paid for your work.
As a result of these complaints, Taylor has indicated that her music, including 1989, will not be available on Apple’s Itunes program. Previously, Taylor withdrew her music from Spotify, another streaming service, for many of the same complaints that she had for Apple.
Taylor Swift spoke out against Apple concerning their new streaming service and Apple listened. Swift became aware that Apple was providing their customers with a 90-day trial period to check out their service. So, Sam Tabar asks what made her threaten to keep her upcoming album off the companies music platform? She was upset that per stream royalties would not be paid to the artists for that 3 month period. Here in a well spoken rant; Swift speaks out to Apple in defense of musicians everywhere by letting it be known she disagrees with the idea of artists having to go a quarter of a year without streaming revenue.
This could be detrimental to the careers of up and coming artists and small independent labels who are still trying to monetize their work successfully. Apple, in direct response to Taylor’s post, has decided to change the structure of the platform and pay out royalties for the 3 month trial. The technology giant even contacted Ms. Swift personally to advise her of the decision for change. Swift was pleased, but no news yet as to whether or not Swift’s new album ‘1989’ will be available on the new streaming service. So, in the battle of Taylor Swift vs. Apple; Taylor Swift is the victor.
Nicki Minaj has finally responded to her boyfriend Safaree’s song that he created about their personal and private relationship. Nicki was coupled up with Safaree for about 12 years, and now he created a song to lash out against the fact that she left him. Nicki Responds To Ex Boyfriend. The couple broke up for unknown reasons, and Nicki smashed the windows out of her Benz car, and many wondered why. Nicki is now responding and saying that Safaree cheated on her, and she was loyal to him, and that’s why the relationship ended.
She also tells him to stop having a pity party for himself, and he needs to move on with his life and make himself handy. Nicki claims that she is very happy right now with Meek Mill, and she’s happy because she’s also a good person. She feels that she let people get over on her for too long, and she is finally choosing to be happy. Of course, Safaree never mentioned what he did to Nicki to make her run away from him, but no woman stays in a relationship so long and leaves for no reason.
Some men tend to turn a blind eye to their own indiscretions, and when the woman calls him out on it, they want to call her disloyal. Nicki stayed with this man since she was in her very early twenties, and now it’s over, so he needs to get over it, and move on.
If you were thinking that you had nothing to do this Thursday evening, you may think differently if you check out Netflix’s new line-up. Released one whole day early, the entire third season of “Orange is the New Black.” That’s right, if you thought you had to wait till this weekend, think again. You can start watching the long awaited third season right now. I had plans to watch this all weekend, but I only thought that they were going to release just one episode per week. According to PR Newswire, if you remember where the second season left off, Piper called and reported that Vause had a gun in her possession because she was in trouble. As a violation of her parole, Vause is back in jail for the third season, and she’s back in Chapman’s arms where she belongs. Of course, Alex doesn’t know that Piper is the one who turned her in. This season promises to be the biggest and best yet. This show has quite the following and despite the explicit sexual content and language, it’s still a bit hit. My TV will be tuned to Netflix all weekend in an attempt to cram in a whole season in a day or two. The show is that good and it’s just amazing how well these writers portray this true story. There’s plenty of drama, chick fights, sex and just all around fun. The characters each have redeemable qualities, even though they are all convicted of crimes. Sometimes, I have to remind myself that they are in prison and not just friends living life.
Nick Jonas has been blowing up lately. He has his hands on a lot of different things right now. He has been hot for a while with his own music, but he went on a radio interview and covered Ariana Grande’s “Problems.”
Jonas did a nice job with this. This is just how he shows off his skills scoffed his vocal coach Ricardo Tosto. He has been around for a long time, and it is always nice to hear him doing something that is out of the ordinary. It may be an indicator that he is a fan of Grande and that he would like to work with her.
There certainly are a lot of people that have been interested in Grande and her music. Justin Bieber is working with her. She also did music with Chris Brown. All of this shows that Grande is in high demand. At the moment her new album has been put on hold because she is busy on tour. Nick Jonas is also going on tour as well.
He was originally scheduled to tour with Iggy Azalea, but she cancelled her tour. Now Nick is going on tour as a headliner. It is possible that some people may hear renditions of songs like “Problems” because he only has one solo album. He has to do songs by other people to put on a decent show because he hasn’t built up his catalog of songs.
