Everyone Is Talking About Corey Feldman’s Bizarre ‘Today Show’ Performance

corey-feldman1

(PCM) It appears that actor Corey Feldman fancies himself a musician these days. Actually, he has been trying to break into the mainstream music realm for quite a few years with limited success. He managed to release a few albums over the years and play a one-off gig here and there, but that was about it, that is until now!

The internet is buzzing about Feldman’s recent appearance on “The Today Show” as his performance was just about as bizarre as you would expect it to be, so much so, that we doubt NBC will even be releasing any additional video clips. Feldman claims that he is currently collaborating with Snoop Dogg on a new track called “Go 4 It”, which is perhaps why he was asked to appear on “The Today Show” in the first place.

Feldman, looking like a mix between Lord Voldemort and Michael Jackson, choppily danced robotically around the stage flanked by his band of women dressed as angels whom he referenced as “Corey’s Angels” (clever … really!).  Judging by the reactions people are having via social media, it appears that Feldman many have to hit the drawing board once again in an attempt to launch his music career.

He appeared to be taking this dead seriously, while those that were able to catch the performance thought the entire thing was utterly hilarious!  Check out the YouTube clips that surfaced below:

(PCM) Organizers of the Concert Across America to End Gun Violence today announced that Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam has joined the lineup for the nationwide concert’s headliner event at New York’s Beacon Theatre on September 25 – the Congressionally-designated date to remember murder victims. Vedder will take the stage with previously­ announced artists Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Marc Cohn and Vy Higginsen’s Gospel Choir of Harlem.

Tickets are on sale at http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/3B005106BA741DB9 and all Ticketmaster locations.

The Beacon Theatre is among 250 venues nationwide where more than 1,000 artists will lend their voices and mobilize to make the country’s epidemic of gun violence a voting issue in the November elections. Spearheaded by Massachusetts­-based Stop Handgun Violence (SHV) partnering with Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence and dozens of other organizations, the Concert Across America to End Gun Violence will feature performances at a diverse array of venues ranging from churches and school gymnasiums to honky­tonks, theatres and hotel rooftops.

From The Rooftop at The Standard, Downtown LA in Los Angeles, and Lola’s Trailer Park in Fort Worth, TX, to the Brighton Music Hall in Boston and the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA, artists will give voice to the more than five hundred thousand Americans murdered by a firearm since the mass shooting at the University of Texas on Aug. 1, 1966.
“Every day in America over 90 people die and 200 are injured from largely preventable gun violence. It’s time we all take a stand against the epidemic of gun violence and hold our elected officials accountable. This coast-to-coast concert and mobilizing effort will ensure that gun violence prevention is front and center in the November elections and beyond,” SHV Founder John Rosenthal said.

Made In America Celebrates Five Years In The City Of Brotherly Love!

(PCM) The Budweiser Made In America Festival has become a Labor Day tradition in the city of Philadelphia and this year the eclectic Jay-Z curated musical extravaganza celebrated it’s fifth anniversary in the city of brotherly love. It has been truly amazing to witness this festival continue to grow each and every year and we don’t think another festival in the country features the same level of artist diversity as Made In America.

At times the Made In America festival can truly seem like a game of spot the celebrity and this year was no different. Throughout the weekend there were many reported (and confirmed) sightings of former President Bill Clinton, Malia Obama, a slew of secret service and S.W.A.T. team officers, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Michael B. Jordan, and someone even claimed they saw Kanye West on the grounds (but we doubt it). It is a who’s who of the entertainment industry and we adore being right in the thick of it!

Headliners Rihanna on Saturday night and Coldplay on Sunday night absolutely slayed with their performances. We seriously can’t believe it had taken Rihanna this long to coordinate schedules with Jay-Z to make an appearance at the festival, as she has been a Roc Nation artist for years. Reading several other reviews of Rihanna’s performance, we couldn’t believe that more people were taking the time to comment on her clothing and boots (which were fantastic by the way) and not her absolutely amazing showmanship. This lady knows how to commandeer an audience and was hypnotizing to watch.

Rihanna opened with a very dark and soulful rendition of the hit “Stay” which she performed from the top of the soundboard behind the audience before sashaying her way across a lowered catwalk which carried her across the Ben Franklin Parkway directly over top of the audience. It was magical. Rihanna plowed through her hits such as “B*tch Better Have My Money”, “Umbrella”, “Live Your Life” and “Rude Boy”. Fans were hoping that we might get a glimpse of current boy toy Drake at some point during her performance, however no such luck here in Philly.

If we thought Rihanna’s performance to close out Saturday night was impressive, we had no idea what was about to hit with Coldplay’s amazing set to close out Sunday night. They were phenomenal. Vocalist Chris Martin and the rest of the band brought their A-game to their 90 minute Made In America performance.

The stage was bright and colorful and a glorious array of fireworks went off as Coldplay kicked off their set with the trippy “Headful of Dreams”. The band then kicked things into high gear incorporating the entire audience into the show with the use of LED lighted bracelets that lit up in time with the music that was being played. It was an amazing sight to behold. Highlights of their set included “Yellow”, “Paradise”, “Clocks” and a gorgeous rendition of “Evergold” that nearly brought us to tears.

Music has always had the power to unite and looking out around the crowd we saw that unity on full display. There were no lines of separation between race, religion, political affiliation or sexuality. It was just people, coming together as one, getting lost in the music that spoke to our souls.

The overall diversity of this year’s line-up was fantastic, while there were of course some performances we could have lived without for example, the utter boredom we endured during the Sunday evening set from FKA Twigs and not being all that impressed with Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, majority of the performances this year were spot-on. We loved rocking out with Collegrove ( 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne), Chance The Rapper,  Jamie XX, Martin Garrix, and DJ Khaled.  Artists such as Gary Clark, Jr and Dorothy are always a treat, however we definitely are hoping that 2017 features just a few more artists that lean heavier on the rock side, as this year was incredibly hip-hop heavy.

What we love about Made In America also has a lot to do with their charitable activities as well. The Cause Village is a wonderful area to visit as it is chock full of ways in which we can all become involved to help our world become a better place. It is not something you see at a lot of other festivals, so we certainly praise Made In America for teaching individuals, especially the younger generation, about the importance of giving back.

The audience, as in years past, was sea of red, white and blue and it was fantastic to see so many young people out having a good time and showing a ton of pride for their country. Diversity is what makes America great and yet again it was wonderful to witness so many people coming together as one in the spirit of music and the close out the summer festival season having the time of their lives.

No, David Bowie’s Ashes Were Not Scattered At The Burning Man Festival

david-bowie1

(PCM) Whoever started the ridiculous rumor that the late David Bowie’s ashes were scattered throughout the grounds of the recent Burning Man Festival held in the Nevada desert has just been shut down. David Bowie’s son, director Duncan Jones took to Twitter to dispel the rumor that had been circulating claiming that he and his godson took his late father’s ashes to Burning Man to be spread as per the late singer’s final wishes.

Jones went a step further and claimed that if his father did want his ashes to be spread anywhere it would more than likely be at Skegness Butlins, a resort and fairground in England. Definitely not Burning Man!

Surprisingly, E! News was one of the first outlets to misreport on the false information about Bowie’s ashes at Burning Man, as they felt they had a reliable source. They claim the source revealed “David’s godchild and David had long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and David loved the message behind it.” The source also claimed that a memorial service took place for Bowie during the festival.  While that service may or may not have occurred, one thing is for sure, Bowie ashes are certainly not spread in the Nevada desert.

Lady Gaga’s Unveils New Single ‘Perfect Illusion’

gaga1

(PCM) We have finally gotten our hands on the highly anticipated new single from Lady Gaga titled “Perfect Illusion”. The track marks Gaga’s first solo release in nearly three years, as her last album was 2013’s  “Artpop”.  “Perfect Illusion” was produced by Mark Ronson, Lady Gaga, Kevin Parker, and BloodPop.

Fans have heard snippets of the track and during last year’s iHeartRadio Music summit Gaga commented on the track saying “The song is about modern ecstasy… We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it… I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it.”

Mother Monster appears to be poised and ready to make a big comeback with the release of the new single and the Little Monsters are absolutely overjoyed!

Kanye Sets His Sights On Designing School Uniforms

Kanye1

(PCM) Always one to chase the latest fashion trend, rapper Kanye West is setting his sights in a completely different direction claiming that he would now like to design school uniforms for the city of Chicago.

He feels that his school uniform designs would help bring about an end to bullying and classism within the public school system. Kanye may actually be on to something, as school uniform use in urban areas is on the rise according to the National Center for Education Statistic, especially in areas known for high rates of gang violence.

On the other side the American Civil Liberties Union feels that incorporating school uniforms infringes upon students freedom of speech and expression. We can definitely see the pro and cons of this debate, however we would certainly be curious to see just what kind of uniform design Kanye would come up with, you can’t say you’re not curious, too!
