  • Tue, 25 Jul 2017 01:00:00 EST

    Alicia Keys unveiled a new hairstyle over the weekend, giving new meaning to her song "Girl on Fire." A picture the singer shared on social media shows her sporting neon orange, yellow and pink-hued braids, with her back turned to the camera, enjoying a view of New York City.

    Another photo features Alicia looking straight at the camera, with a handful of braids hiding one of her eyes.

    Alicia is known for donning natural hairstyles and was an endorser of the no-makeup movement last year, appearing on red carpets without concealer, lipstick or foundation. She was also featured in People magazine’s annual Most Beautiful issue earlier this year as one of the publication’s Fabulous Faces of 2017.

    The record will also include a new single "I Was Born." Keyboardist and middle brother, Taylor Hanson, remarked, "The addition of ‘I Was Born’ to this album is our way of still looking to the future, even as we celebrate where we have been for the last two decades."



  • LANA DEL REY CASTS SPELL ON DONALD TRUMP

  • Tue, 25 Jul 2017 01:00:00 EST

    Lana Del Rey’s new album Lust for Life premiered last Friday, and the singer sat down with NME to discuss the latest chapter of her life and career.

    The interviewer brought up an odd headline from early this year when Lana asked fans to help her cast a spell on President Donald Trump and Del Rey said she has no regrets about summoning the forces of light and darkness to stall the president’s agenda.

    "Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of s***t," she said. "Your thoughts are very powerful things and they become words, and words become actions, and actions lead to physical changes…I really do believe that words are one of the last forms of magic and I’m a bit of a mystic at heart."

    Lana’s witchcraft involved getting fans to participate in a ritual on February 24th, March 26th, April 24th and May 23rd under the crescent moon. She directed fans to ingredients that would "bind" Trump’s administration and supporters when used appropriately.

  • LINKIN PARK POSTS LETTER TO LATE SINGER CHESTER BENNINGTON

  • Tue, 25 Jul 2017 01:00:00 EST

    The surviving members of Linkin Park posted an open letter online on Monday (July 24th) to the band's late singer, Chester Bennington, who was found dead last Thursday (July 20th) after hanging himself at his Los Angeles home. The letter read in full:

    "Dear Chester,

    "Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

    "You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we've seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

    "Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled — a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We're trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.

    "Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don't know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.

    "Until we see you again, LP."

    • Bennington was found dead in his home in Palos Verdes by one of his employees shortly before 9:00 a.m. last Thursday. A Los Angeles County coroner confirmed that the cause of death was "suicide by hanging."
    • A half-full bottle of alcohol was found in the room, but it was reportedly not near the body.
    • Linkin Park canceled plans for a North American tour and the band's future at the moment remains unclear, while fans and musicians worldwide reacted to the death of the singer.
    • Bennington told us a few years back that he and the rest of Linkin Park were always willing to work hard for the band's success: "Any success story that you've ever heard about is the willingness to just put everything you have into it. And that's something that, I think, this band has been blessed with. There's six people in this band and to find that many guys that can get along creatively and write songs together and tour together and play and accomplish the things we've done without any problems, you know, is something pretty special."
    • But Bennington had been candid about mental health battles in numerous interviews over the years, saying he grappled with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and substance abuse.
    • Linkin Park released its seventh studio album, One More Light, in May. It debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart.
