Gwen Stefani Set To Join “The Voice”


(PCM) Fresh off her recent guest appearance during Pharrell’s incredible Coachella performance, performing her hit song “Hollaback Girl”, it has been revealed that Gwen Stefani will join Pharrell as the newest judge on NBC’s “The Voice”.

Multiple sources that work closely with show producers have revealed that due to Christina Aguilera’s pregnancy, Stefani will appear in her place, at least for Season 7, which will begin taping in June.

Sources go on to claim that Aguilera wanted to film during her pregnancy, but because she was having some difficulties, she was ultimately forced to pass along the chair.

Thus far, Stefani has only signed a deal for the one season and all signs point to Aguilera returning for Season 8.

Who do you think will make a better judge on “The Voice”…Gwen Stefani or Christina Aguilera?

Coachella Did NOT Cause Instagram To Crash


(PCM) Instagram users were in a frenzy this afternoon when the popular social media photo app was down for a few hours with many blaming the influx of Coachella selfies being shared for the issue. Instagram has issued a statement and claims that it was not the Coachella music festival that caused the outage.

The problem according to Instagram was a “feed delivery issue” which appears to be fixed at this time.

From the many tweets that were posted from those attending Coachella, the popular music festival in Indio, Ca, this weekend, you would have thought that the entire world was coming to an end and that Instagram was just another part of the festival.

The very best one came from comedian/actor David Spade which read “Instagram is down.  Does that mean they cancel Coachella? I mean what’s the point of going now. To hear music??”

We can’t believe that some even believed that the festival would be cancelled over a lack of Instagram use!  We love social media as much as the next person, but seriously… attention to the incredible festival happening around you and put down the phone or tablet for just a little while!

Begin Again in Theaters July 4

Begin_Again_2(PCM) Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo star in John Carney’s dramadey, Begin Again, about two music lovers in New York trying to figure out their path in life, in theaters nationwide July 4.

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (Once), Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together.

Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own.

Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent.

From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

Begin Again, being a film about music, stars great actors like Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo,  Catherine Keener, and Hailee Steinfeld alongside musicians Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Mos Def.
