CeeLo Green has shut down his Twitter account after saying really stupid shit.
Yesterday (September 1), as Billboard reports, Green deleted two tweets prior to removing his whole account in which he is alleged to have written: "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" and "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent."

Frances Bean Cobain has taken to Twitter to weigh in on Lana Del Rey's recent Guardian interview.
I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's "cool". Well, it's fucking not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life.Don't be 1 of those ppl

Lana Del Rey has taken to Twitter (and it looks like since deleted) to respond to the Guardian article we posted about last week. Although Ms. Del Rey directly calls out "Alexis" (probably referring to Alexis Petridis who wrote the review of Ultraviolence for The Guardian), the author of the original piece was Tim Jonze. Tim Jonze has written a follow-up piece that includes the audio files from the original interview.
"i regret trusting the guardian- i didn’t want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent. Alexis was masked as a fan but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles Maybe he’s actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about. His leading...

According to posts on Twitter, it appears a concert goer tried to jump on stage and kiss Britty Drake of Pity Sex at tonight's show.
Sucks that a culture of entitlement has engrained that its cool to kiss nonconsenting strangers so well that he didnt know what he did wrong. But it just makes me appreciate all of the wonderful supportive and respectful people on this tour and at the show tonight.

Billboard and Twitter have teamed up to present the "real-time charts" to track the most popular music being shared on the social network.
The first is Billboard Trending 140, which compares the frequency a song is shared over the past hour with the hourly average of shares in the last day. The second is Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists, which ranks songs from artists with less than 50,000 Twitter followers by the volume of shares in a 24-hour period. There will also be weekly summaries showing the most popular tracks on Twitter during that time span.

Linkin Narc, I mean Park, have disputed the claim by Sublime with Rome that they ratted the band out to the cops. Mile Shinoda posted on Twitter:
LP didn’t “call the cops” on @RomeMusica smoking pot. Not sure where the rumor came from. Definitely not my style, bummer it happened. We were at a meet & greet when Sublime was on stage, not dressing room. Wouldn’t even know if there was smoke. If someone was “representing the band” to the cops in the venue about weed smoke, they were out of line.

Sublime with Rome have accused Linkin Park of calling the cops on them.
Linkin Park called the cops on us and said that they were allergic to pot. Cops came and took all our weed while we on stage. Bitch shit

Looks like Adele has teased her new album, 25, may be released later this year.
So how exactly could that be an album tease? Well, Adele's first album, "19," was written and released when the singer was 19 years old in January 2008, and its follow-up, "21," captures her life as a 21-year-old, and was released a few months after she turned 22, in January 2011. If Adele will be revisiting the age of 25 "later in the year," perhaps it will be in the form of the most anticipated album release of the year.

I was planning to write something about this entire "who was talking about emo/pop-punk/whatever" debate that sprung up online yesterday (and touched on it via Twitter this morning), but Ben Cosman at The Wire nails the entire point I wanted to make in one paragraph:
A pissing-contest over who's liked emo longer isn't going to do the genre any favors in popularity. But of course an argument about emo descends into "I was talking about this band way before you were". As Cohen and Hyden (and a slew of others on Twitter) pointed out to Heisel, those who've hung around with the genre should be pleased with the progress it has made recently, both in terms of credibility and quality, instead...

Twitter and Billboard have created the "Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts." A constantly updating chart of music that’s being talked about and shared by Twitter users.
Billboard has always been the standard by which music popularity is measured, and Twitter and its millions of users worldwide have added an entirely new dimension and pace to the way the marketplace interacts with, and evaluates, music and music-makers," said Janice Min, Co-President/Chief Creative Officer of the Entertainment Group of Guggenheim Media.

Oli Skyes has commented on the Ian Watkins trial. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that "biggest victims" portion is just really poorly worded.
So Watkins was sentenced & justice was served, wether you think it was too short a stretch or not. My heart goes out to all the victims effected, but I would like you all to consider the impact and destruction watkins has inflicted on his band, and see how them themselves are in some ways the biggest victims of this nightmare. He destroyed the legacy of Lost Prophets (which were my favourite band ever back in the day) -when your band ends you want to be able to look back at all the good times, listen to the songs you made,...

When I was asked to do this tribute, I was somewhere in Denmark. I picked Capo right away. I recorded this song very, very simply, just one guitar and my voice and my harmonica. I did it one night in the winter, it was freezing and quiet and late, like it always is when this kind of song is written or recorded.

To me Capo says, "I'm trying... I'm doing my best, but it's hard...
