"I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, 'Fuck this. I don’t want it, take it. Get it away from me'. People already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more."
Igloo Australia Iggy Azalea doesn’t want your stinkin’ Grammy, okay? (Power 106, LA)


"I must have been channelling that feeling, that late '70s feeling. Sometimes when you look back on your past work, you see echoes of people. But that doesn’t mean that’s what you were doing… This is the last place I want to be right now. The last thing you want to do as a creator is take something of someone else’s when you love him."
Pharrell Williams, in court with Marvin Gaye’s family over the similarities between “Blurred Lines” and Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up”. (NME)

“Cedric [Bixler-Zavala] threw a plastic kettle full of boiling hot water towards me and my friends.”
Multiple (surreal) reports suggest that Cedric from Antemasque was throwing (moderately dangerous) shit at his own audience at a New Zealand festival. (New Zealand Herald)

"I can do whatever I feel like doing. If I felt like going to a bar — that's not my thing — but if I felt like going to a bar and meeting somebody or meeting somebody casual, I could… You just have to be open to whatever possibilities life presents to you.”
Cheer up, fellas! J. Lo is still open to meeting dudes from the block. (Digital Spy)

"I wanna stick my pinky in your ass-hole. I'm a Belieber..."
Jeff Ross wants to remind you that the Comedy Central Justin Bieber roast is getting closer:

"It doesn't bother me. It's a free world. Say what you will. I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good, that's always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family — I don't seek out any other acceptance."
Kelly Clarkson responds to fat-shaming at the hands of a British arse-hole critic. (Heat Magazine)

"As far as I’m concerned, no bad blood from me… I love playing, listening, and everything about punk rock. It changed my life. I think for Tom, he doesn’t like punk music and it was a phase for him.”
Travis Barker is still bitching about Tom DeLonge. No bad blood? Really? (Alternative Nation)

“A few months ago I emailed my manager and said, 'Guess what? This streaming thing just does not feel right. I don’t know why, but it just seems insane.’ To work on something for two or three years and then just, 'Oh, here it is for free.' It's not about the money; it’s about respect, you know? Respect for the craft and the amount of work you put into it."
Bjork hasn’t put Vulnicura on Spotify yet for reasons that 100% make sense. (Fast Company)

"We are fucking in it. We've got lots of songs, and we're honing them and tweaking them. It's pretty close."
Lars Ulrich says a new Metallica album is imminent. (Rolling Stone)

Behold: Yet more proof that Ryan Adams can cover anything and make it awesome:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
