Beyonce feat. J Cole - "Party" - Official Video

It seems that for the official video of "Party", Andre 3000 has morphed in another rapper and delivered a far worse verse.

When the video surfaced, people started tweeting their hands off in outrage that 3000 had not been included in the video and Roc Nation's - J Cole was put in his place.

However, it appears that nepotism had no place here. Rumour has it that, as was the case when Big Boi and Lil Wayne wanted 3000 on their respective albums, 3000's record label made the block meaning that his verse and image could not feature in the video.

The watered down video is below:

Stone Roses reunion official

Moments ago, the much debated reunion of The Stone Roses was made official.

The band will play a pair of gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park on June 29 and 30 before heading out on a world tour.

It has also been announced that they will be performing new material

Let the madness commence

Stone Roses reunion set to be announced today

Now before I start, I must declare an interest here; for me, The Stone Roses are one of the greatest bands of all time and the chance to see them live would be incredible.

However, one of the greatest things about the band has been their, seemingly militant, refusal that a reunion would ever happen and therefore preserving the history of the music. Frontman, Ian Brown has spent a substantial amount of his solo career denying that such a reunion would ever happen.

However, Reni has cryptically indicated that he would not be involved with any reunion so it remains sketchy as to what lineup will be wheeled out.

I was skeptical, to say the least, when I heard the newest additions to the rumour mill. However, whispers grew louder and with it seeming that today's press conference will confirm two shows in Manchester next year.

There is nothing better than a band refusing the millions offered to reform and roll out the hits; but, does that make me any less excited? Does it bollocks!

Vybz Kartel launches skin bleaching cream

As reported on LGB on 25th January 2011, Dancehall star - Vybz Kartel has been dabbling with skin bleaching products with shocking results.

In another twist, Vybz is set to launch a range of male skin bleaching products for others wanting to trial his 'look'.

The range is set for general release last month and it would seem that Vybz is looking for a side hustle just in case this murder charge doesn't disappear! A press release of the products is below... it looks like someone is bottling it in a shed out the garden.

The Muppets to cover "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

The Muppets are set to cover Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in their upcoming movie.

The Muppets Barbershop Quartet will also be covering "Fuck You" but, I would imagine they will go with the cleaner "Forget You" as to ensure it retains a U status.

The movie, which as you can probably guess - I cannot wait for, features Lady Gaga, Ricky Gervais, Jack Black and other cameos.

Dave Grohl is set to cameo as Animals replacement in the band as he attends anger management therapy... Great stuff.

Drake announces "Take Care" pushed back

Drake has turned to his blog - October's Very Own to announce that, the follow up to "Thank Me Later", "Take Care" is to be pushed back to 15th November 2011.

The reason for the delay is due to Drizzy awaiting clearance on 3 samples. Drizzy posted:

“My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it,” Drake explained. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get "Take Care" the exact way I created it with no trimmings.”  

For the USA readers... this also means that the tour is to be pushed back.

Lykke Li - "Unchained Melody"

And we're off

Lykke covers a pop classic and makes it beautiful.

It's been a while...

Apologies... I have been twittering but there has been a severe lack of updates since the Mercury Prize.

I thought that to celebrate two Mercury Prizes, I should do sod all for a bit - suitably refreshed.
