Rudy Giuliani thought Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance was an "attack" on police. Rudy Giuliani is an idiot.
[The NFL should] just figure out what’s going on. I mean, this is a political position. She’s probably going to take advantage of it. You’re talking to Middle America when you have the Super Bowl. So you can have entertainment. Let’s have decent, wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who risk their lives to save us.

Kacey Musgraves talks about illegal merchandise and its effect on artists.
My lyrics are being ripped off so many times and, naturally, nobody buying this stuff would ever know that the people who actually CREATED these lyrics are seeing ZERO benefits. It's a huge problem I face every day. There are correct ways to go about using intellectual property to sell and it's not being done. And yeah, sure, it's flattering and it's "getting my message out there" but I've got bills to pay, too.

Craig Owens released new music for a 2-song album called the Las Vegas Sessions. It's up on bandcamp.
In 2015 I went on a personal journey of sorts. Getting as lost as I possibly could in hopes of finding myself. I toured the United States in a rental car, playing your living rooms & driving hours upon hours in unfamiliar places - re-examining pieces of myself I had forgotten about. Desperately searching for a way to fall back in love with the love of my life, music. Years of obsession had left me lacking passion, and the voices in my head had silenced all confidence… but I found myself still breathing.

The Star Wars franchise has released several character themed Spotify playlists, which you can find by visiting the franchise's Spotify profile. Fittingly, considering the character's portrayal, Anakin Skywalker's playlist is filled with basically the most generic emo kid playlist imaginable. Check it out by clicking here.
