Watch The Official Trailer For “Amy”

AMY_web(PCM) From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.

A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era.

Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Rihanna Makes History As Dior’s First Ever Black Campaign Star

Rihanna-Dior2

(PCM) Music and fashion icon Rihanna has made history by becoming the first woman of color to be chosen as the face of fashion designer Dior’s upcoming advertising campaign.

The news was announced that Rihanna would be the new face of Dior back in mid-March, however it was only within the last few days that her sexy and edgy advertisement photos began leaking out on the web.

The photos for Dior’s ad campaign were shot by photographer Steven Meisel for the company’s Secret Garden IV campaign and were taken at the incredibly elegant and historic palace of Versailles.

When the news about her campaign was first announced Rihanna revealed to MTV that it was “such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color. I think to be acknowledged by Dior means a lot, as a woman, to feel beautiful — to feel elegant and timeless.”

World Naked Gardening Day

May2aWorld Nude Gardening Day

(WNGD) On the first Saturday of May, find an opportunity to get naked and do some gardening. Do so alone, with friends, with family, with your gardening club, or with any other group collected for that purpose. Do it inside your house, in your back yard, on a hiking trail, at a city park, or on the streets. Stay private or go public. Make it a quiet time or make it a public splash. Just get naked and make your part of the botanical world a healthier and more attractive place.

All that’s involved is getting naked and making the world’s gardens–whatever their size, public or private–healthier and more attractive. WNGD has no political agenda, nor is it owned or organized by any one particular group. Naked individuals and groups are encouraged to adopt the day for themselves.

Events like WNGD can help develop a sense of community among people of every stripe. Taking part in something that is bigger than any one household, naturist group, or gardening club can move gardeners with an au naturel joie de vivre toward becoming a community. And in the case of WNGD, it’s fun, costs no money, runs no unwanted risk, reminds us of our tie to the natural world, and does something good for the environment.

The WNGD Calendar:
Saturday, September 10 – 2005, Inaugural
Saturday, September 9 – 2006, 2nd Annual
Saturday, May 5, 2007 – 3rd Annual (date switched to May for first time, first Saturday)

Rihanna-Kimmel

(PCM) Rihanna pulled a prank on Jimmy Kimmel late last night/very early this morning with the help of some of his now-former employees at “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The music superstar snuck into Jimmy’s house, tiptoed up to his bedroom and proceeded to stage a full concert at his bedside (and on it).

Jay-Z Holds A Bizarre Press Conference To Launch Tidal

Tidal1

(PCM) Yesterday, the internet was buzzing after Jay-Z held a bizarre celebrity-filled press conference to launch his new artist-run music subscription service called Tidal.

Jay-Z recently purchased the platform which is worth an estimated $56 million and will feature high quality audio and exclusive content that is owned by the actual artists.  Jay-Z was joined at the press conference by artists such as Rihanna, Kanye West, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Jason Aldean, Daft Punk, Arcade Fire and of course Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce. Both Calvin Harris and Chris Martin joined in via video conference.

Tidal, prides itself as being by the artist, for the artists and will cost the listener $20 per month. It was not so much the announcement of Tidal that was bizarre, it was just the behavior of the artists in attendance. They were all lined up on the stage appearing very cult-like and made a big to-do about signing an official declaration.

The worst was Alicia Keyes incredibly confusing speech that found her rambling about everything from Jimmi Hendrix to Nietzsche while giggling and humming “Pomp & Circumstance”, she appeared more intoxicated than serious. It didn’t help matters when Madonna threw her leg up on the podium, Usher made odd hand gestures and the rest of the celebrities just stood around the stage looking uncomfortable.

Almost abruptly the sound cut out and then it was over and Tidal was official born … at least we think. You can watch the full bizarre press conference below:
