The Black Keys star Patrick Carney doesn't care about Grammys.
The rock duo might have won four of the prestigious music ceremony's awards in the past, but the drummer has admitted he thinks the accolades are meaningless.
Appearing on the 'Joe Rogan Podcast' with bandmate Dan Auerbach, he bemoaned: "None of my favourite bands have f****ng Grammys.
"The Clash don't have a f****ng Grammy. ... What is a f****ng Grammy?
"Like, what is this s***?
"We're just j****ng ourselves off and congratulating ourselves.
"Does anybody watch this s*** that really cares about us? I don't think so."
The 'Fever' rockers' 2014 LP 'Lonely Boy' was nominated for Record of the Year, and the 39-year-old sticksman has admitted he believes winning the prize would have screwed up the band.
He explained: "If we would have won that Grammy, it could have f****d our whole band up.
"I've seen it happen with lots of bands.
"You become playschool level.
"We wouldn't have changed, but the thing is, you start acquiring a fan base that's more fickle and maybe more annoying."
The Black Keys returned in June with their first album in five years, 'Let's Rock' - the follow-up to 2014's 'Turn Blue' - and Patrick recently admitted their hiatus was much-needed because the band was taking up their entire lives.
Patrick - who married third wife Michelle Branch in April - said: "I think it's pretty common for a band to do some stuff on a schedule.
"If you go back to the late '60s, you'd see that a band like Creedence Clearwater Revival would make like three albums in a year and these bands would last like seven years.
"Ignore the quality of the work, and just look at: How much output can people have together before they start losing it?
"The real bottom line is this: It took us six years to have a hit record and it was unexpected, so when 'Brothers' took off and started selling a lot and people started really paying attention, we kind of felt like we had to take advantage of all the opportunities that were presented to us and we were afraid to say no to anything.
"We just got going and we found ourselves five years later ... like I went through my second divorce. It was just unsustainable because we weren't living our lives, we were just doing the band."
FKA twigs' new song 'Home with You' is about her getting back in touch with "family" and "nature".
The 31-year-old pop star - whose real name is Tahliah Barnett - has shared the new single from her hotly-anticipated album, 'Magdalene', and explained that the song came out of a "flow of consciousness" when she headed back down to the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire to visit her family.
Twigs told Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio: "'Home with You' is a record that I've written from the heart, and it talks about really just me going home to the suburbs where I'm from in Gloucestershire.
"When in doubt, I just follow my gut and try to be around nature, go back to the Cotswolds, and get in touch with my family.
"Sometimes when I'm in the studio, I can write sort of six ideas a day, seven ideas a day, and then you don't really realise what you've done.
"And I remember with 'Home with You,' I had the MP3 on my phone and then I came back to it the next day and I was like, 'Wow, we really did that.'"
The 'Pendulum' singer's long-awaited follow-up to her 2014 debut album, 'LP1', also explores the tumultuous five-year period between her two records, which saw her undergo high-profile heartbreak following her split from Robert Pattinson, as well as the effects of laparoscopic surgery.
She said in a press release about the record: "I never thought heartbreak could be so all-encompassing. I never thought that my body could stop working to the point that I couldn't express myself physically in the ways that I have always loved and found so much solace.
"I have always practiced my way into being the best I could be, but I couldn't do that this time, I was left with no option but to tear every process down.
"But the process of making this album has allowed me for the first time, and in the most real way, to find compassion when I have been at my most ungraceful, confused and fractured.
"I stopped judging myself and at that moment found hope in 'Magdalene'. To her I am forever grateful."
'Cellophane', the album's lead single, was released in April this year, and came as the first solo track she had released since 2016's stand-alone single 'Good to Love'.
And in a recent interview, twigs said the album was inspired by the "sad place" she had found herself in mentally.
She explained: "I was in a sad place, mentally, and I didn't want to come out of it. I don't have many friends there, and wasn't communicating with my friends or family here. I just went and locked myself off."
Kanye West was warned dating Kim Kardashian West would "sink" his career.
The 'Stronger' hitmaker defied his advisers when he struck up a romance with the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star in 2012 because they told him being with a reality star would damage his image
Kim - who married Kanye in 2014 - said: "I mean, everyone would tell him 'You can't be with her, she's a reality star. She's going to sink your career!' And he was just like 'But I love her. Like, I don't care'."
The couple - who have kids North, six, Saint, three, Chicago, 20 months, and Psalm, four months, together - first met in 2002 when Kim was married to Damon Thomas but she claims he was always attracted to her, and when they did finally get together, she couldn't believe they hadn't hooked up before because it felt so "right".
Speaking in a preview of 'True Hollywood Story', which analyses Kim's rise to fame, she said: "I met Kanye in 2002. He would ask everyone who I was, and they always said like 'Oh, she has a boyfriend'.
"We just always kept on connecting and coming into each other's lives. Then, he invited me to Paris to his fashion show, and that's when it happened.
"That's when we started our relationship. And I was like 'S**t, why didn't this happen sooner?'It was just right.' "
The 42-year-old rapper recalled his "magnetic attraction" to Kim and hailed the "pure" star a "force of energy".
He gushed in the preview: "Any time I was around her and I saw her, it was magnetic attraction to this force of energy. She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong."
As well as Kanye, the likes of 38-year-old Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have also given interviews for Sunday's (13.10.19) show, as well as her best friend Jonathan Cheban.
Kim Kardashian West has had her three youngest children baptised in Armenia.
The 38-year-old beauty was accompanied by her sister Kourtney Kardashian and her children Mason, nine, Penelope, seven, and four-year-old Reign - who she has with former partner Scott Disick - to the Etchmiadzin Cathedral in Vagharshapat on Monday (07.10.19) morning as she had Saint, three, Chicago, 20 months, and four-month-old Psalm welcomed into the Christian faith.
Video footage posted on Kim's Instagram Story showed the family, including Kim's eldest daughter North, six, walking to the ceremony, with the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star carrying her youngest child.
Kim's husband, the children's father Kanye West, has not joined them on the trip.
A source told People magazine the reality stars are staying in the nearby capital city of Yerevan.
They added: "Etchmiadzin Cathedral is the mother church of the Armenian Apostolic Church."
Kim - whose paternal ancestors were Armenian - was very excited to be in the country.
She tweeted on Sunday (06.10.19): "Almost 3 am in Armenia and I can't sleep I'm so excited to be here and see everyone!"
Last month, the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star revealed she had other reasons for visiting Armenia because she was keen to use local facilities to produce her SKIMS shapewear line.
She tweeted: "I will be visiting Armenia in the next 2 weeks and hope to seek ways I can help increase trade and hopefully create jobs for Armenians which includes @skims production there in the future.
"As a brand, we believe in embracing all people and as an individual I have been working towards broader goals in hopes of bringing forward the recognition of the Armenian genocide which I remain very passionate about. @ANCA_DC (sic)"
Four years ago, Kim and Kanye traveled to Jerusalem to have North baptised, with Khloe Kardashian there to be the youngster's godmother.
A source said at the time: "They flew [into Jerusalem] especially for [the baptism]. They knew it was close to Armenia and it was always a dream to come to Jerusalem. There's an Armenian quarter, and they did it at this old beautiful church. It was epic. So beautiful."
Sir Elton John once tried to give Bob Dylan a makeover.
The 72-year-old star - who is known for his flamboyant wardrobe - mistook the 'Blowin' in the Wind' hitmaker for his gardener when he arrived as a guest to one of Elton's parties so tried to "make amends" for his gaffe by offering the singer a chance to change out of his "terrible" clothes.
Elton recalled: "Towards the end of the Eighties, I held an insane party in LA, and invited everyone I knew. By mid-evening, I was flying, absolutely out of my mind, when a scruffy-looking guy I didn't recognise wandered into the lit-up garden.
"Who the hell was he? Must be one of the staff, a gardener. I loudly demanded to know what the gardener was doing helping himself to a drink.
"There was a moment's shocked silence, broken by my PA saying, 'Elton, that's not the gardener. It's Bob Dylan.'
"Coked out of my brain and keen to make amends, I rushed over, grabbed him and started steering him towards the house. 'Bob! Bob! We can't have you in those terrible clothes, darling. Come upstairs and I'll fit you out with some of mine at once. Come on, dear!'
"Dylan stared at me, horrified. His expression suggested he was trying hard to think of something he wanted to do less than get dressed up like Elton John, and drawing a blank."
The evening didn't stop Bob from hanging out with Elton, as the 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker also recalled another evening when he pelted his pal with oranges because he was "so hopeless" at charades, which they were playing with folk duo Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel.
He recalled in an extract from his new autobiography 'Me: Elton John' published in the Daily Mail newspaper: "Another time, I invited Dylan to dinner with Simon and Garfunkel, and afterwards we played charades.
"At least, they tried to play charades. They were terrible at it. The best thing I can say about Simon and Garfunkel is that they were better than Dylan.
"He couldn't get the hang of the 'How many syllables?' thing at all. He couldn't do 'sounds like' either, come to think of it. One of the best lyricists in the world, the greatest man of letters in the history of rock music, and he couldn't seem to tell you whether a word had one syllable or two syllables or what it rhymed with!
"He was so hopeless, I started throwing oranges at him. Or so I was informed the next morning by a friend.
"That's not really a phone call you want to receive when you're struggling with a hangover. 'Morning, darling -- do you remember throwing oranges at Bob Dylan last night?' Oh God."
Coldplay will reportedly release their first album in four years next month.
Chris Martin and co haven't released a record since 2015's 'A Head Full Of Dreams', but according to an insider they are planning to drop an "experimental" record in November, followed by a "mainstream" studio effort next year, which will likely be followed by a huge tour.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper's Wired column: "The first album is the more experimental side of Coldplay, they probably won't tour until 2020 when the next one arrives."
Before releasing 'A Head Full Of Dreams', the 'Yellow' hitmakers released stripped-back LP 'Ghost Stories' in 2014, which was believed to be inspired by Chris and ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow's split in 2014.
In April, it was reported that band members Will Champion and Jonny Buckland had registered a new song titled 'Conscious Pilot'.
Whilst in November, Mat Whitecross - who directed the band's documentary 'A Head Full Of Dreams' and has helmed many of their music videos - teased that the Grammy-winners were planning to drop new material in 2020.
He said: "They're on a sabbatical at the moment so they've been ruthlessly on holiday for a year.
"They've never done that before. I don't know if you can call Chris a workaholic because he loves what he does; he's in and out of the studio writing three or four songs a day.
"This year, they decided to take off. They haven't been doing anything as far as I know, but they do have plans for next year however I've not been party to them."
Ally Brooke wants to release more Spanish-language music.
The former Fifth Harmony member is currently working on her debut solo album, and after teaming up with Kris Kross Amsterdam and Messiah on the Latin track 'Vámonos', she is keen to record more tracks in the language to pay homage to her Mexican roots.
In a clip from FUSE's upcoming 'Made From Scratch' series , she teased: "I'm constantly working on my craft and working on other things too ... an eventual tour, and I'm working on an album right now ... different collaborations.
"I'm so excited - you know some of the collabs that I have!"
Ally's aunt Diana then asks her: "Are you going to do Tejano?!"
To which she replied: "I would love to eventually, auntie!
"I would love to do even more songs in Spanish."
Ally - who is currently competing on 'Dancing with the Stars' - previously spoke about how "proud" she is of her family's culture.
She said: "Being Latina means being strong and courageous and I think the number one thing is [to be] passionate.
"We love with such passion and we are so dedicated to our families, to our friends, to our loved ones.
"We care so much about people.
"We want people to come into our homes and feel like its their home, all are welcomed.
"That's such a beautiful thing about our culture is that we represent that, we rep family, and that is something that's so magnificent and I'm so proud.
"We have such beautiful culture with out music, with our dancing, with our food. I am so thankful that I am Latina," she continued. "I am so thankful that I'm Hispanic and everything that it represents, everything that my family represents... that true embodiment of love, and following your heart. That's what it's about."
Reese Witherspoon is "still figuring out" how to balance work and home life.
The 'Big Little Lies' star admits it can be tough focusing on both her career and her home life with husband Jim Toth and her kids - Ava, 20, Deacon, 15, and Tennessee, seven.
Speaking to Natalie Portman for Harper's Bazaar magazine, she said: "Let's be real. Every working mother is still figuring these things out. But, honestly, I think women who are incredibly busy are the most productive people in the world. If I ever needed something done, I would ask the busiest woman I know."
Meanwhile, Reese previously confessed she is glad she had her children "kind of young."
She said: "I've been a mom since 1999. I got pregnant [with Ava] when I was 22 and delivered when I was 23. To be totally honest, it was scary. I was scared. I didn't know what it was going to do to my job or my career. Your entire life will change. Everything you believe, every piece of food you eat, every piece of independence you have. You can't go out without thinking of another person. These are all the things that happen in the beginning, and then it just evolves from there. I find that having little kids is more physical and it's just really hard on your body, so I am glad that I had kids kind of young. I had one at 23, one at 27 and then again at 37. And oh my god, having a baby at 37 was so much harder. This is just me being real."
Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie are reuniting on a new action thriller.
The pair worked together on 1998 crime comedy movie 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' and the 2000 follow up 'Snatch' - on which Ritchie directed the Hollywood star - and they will team up again for an as-yet untitled revenge-based Miramax motion picture.
Ritchie said: "I'm looking forward to bringing this story to life and working with Jason while he still has the use of his knees."
Miramax CEO Bill Block, who will produce alongside Ivan Atkinson, added: "Working again with Guy Ritchie on our second collaboration together, alongside renowned actor Jason Statham, is a privilege, and we anticipate that the tone and flavour of these two longtime friends will resurrect nothing less than a true, genre classic."
The company have acquired remake rights of the original French film 'Le Convoyeur', which means Cash Truck.
The 2014 movie tells the story of Alexandre Demarre, who works as a security guard for an armoured track company who begins to build up a profile of each of his colleagues.
In Ritchie's version, the story will focus on H, who works at a cash truck company in Los Angeles, and the film will move across various timelines and characters' perspectives.
Statham previously admitted he is "more suited" to action movies than other genres.
He said: "I think I'm more suited to action movies than courtroom dramas, so I tend to stick to those. It's something that I get a lot of fulfilment out of.
"I feel I'm better at those than I am at other stuff. I play to my strength I suppose."
Penn Badgley is set to join Tiffany Haddish and Billy Crystal in 'Here Today'.
The former 'Gossip Girl' star - who recently portrayed the disturbing role of Joe Goldberg in hit gripping Netflix series 'You' - has been added to the upcoming comedy along with 'The West Wing' actress Anna Deavere Smith, 'The Good Fight' star Nyambi Nyambi and Tony-winner Laura Benanti.
Crystal is helming the flick, which is currently filming in New York.
As per IMDB.com, the movie tells the story of a "veteran comedy writer (Crystal) who is slowly but surely losing his grip on reality.
"He befriends talented young New York street singer Emma Payge (Haddish) and they form an unlikely, touching friendship that defies the generation gap aside and redefines the meaning of love and trust."
'When Harry Met Sally...' star Crystal teamed up with Emmy-winner Alan Zweibel for the script, which is based on the latter's short story 'The Prize'.
They join Haddish in producing the Astute Films comedy.
The company's President, Fred Bernstein, commented: "We've assembled a terrific and gifted cast.
"Billy and Alan Zweibel gave us a wonderful script, and great actors want to work with Billy. We are thrilled!"
Away from the small screen, Badgley has starred in movies including 'Easy A', 'John Tucker Must Die', 'Margin Call' and 'The Stepfather'.
Badgley's latest movie role comes after he opened up about the pitfalls of fame.
The 32-year-old actor found success playing Dan Humphrey on the CW show 'Gossip Girl', but said recently he isn't a fan of the spotlight, which he described as an acronym standing for "F***ing Awful Man, Extremely".
He said: "It's boring to me. [It stands for] F***ing Awful Man, Extremely!. You're dancing on a razor's edge. When you falter, it's very public. When you break up, it's public."
Badgley has been married to singer Domino Kirke since February 2017, but previously underwent high profile splits from Blake Lively - who is now married to Ryan Reynolds - in 2010, and Zoe Kravitz, who is now romancing Karl Glusman, in 2013.
Justin Bieber has confirmed he will drop his new album by the end of the year.
The 'Never Say Never' hitmaker and his wife Hailey Bieber took to social media to reveal he will release his fifth studio album, a follow up to 2015's 'Purpose', in the next couple of months.
In an Instagram Live video, Justin could be seen roller-skating around his kitchen while announcing: "I'm putting out an album this year."
Hailey replied: "This year meaning before 2020? I thought you already were doing it this year?"
Justin said: "Album coming out this year ... legit though, like this year."
This comes after the 25-year-old pop star released a collaboration with country music duo Dan + Shay last Friday (04.10.19).
Sharing a 26-second teaser clip of the track, he wrote on Twitter: "New music. Wedding music. @DanAndShay and this guy. FRIDAY (sic)"
Justin teased earlier this year that his new album is "coming soon".
Breaking his hiatus to perform with Ariana Grande at Coachella in April, he said: "So anyways this is my first time on stage in two years. I had to get my groove back, my swag back. By the way, album coming soon."
While he hasn't dropped an album for four years, Justin has appeared on a number of collaborations, including 'I Don't Care' with Ed Sheeran and a remix of Billie Eilish's 'Bad Guy'.
In March, the 'Love Yourself' hitmaker said he wouldn't be rushing his return to music because he wanted to take the time to make something he could be proud of.
He wrote in a lengthy social media post: "So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I've toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realised and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don't deserve that and you don't deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.
"I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable.... the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it's a text where u just don't care). (sic)"
Robbie Williams' eldest daughter Teddy features on her dad's upcoming Christmas album.
The former Take That star has some "special guests" featuring on his festive record, including seven-year-old Teddy, however, his wife Ayda Field has revealed that she didn't make the "cut" to sing on one of the songs and neither did the couple's daughter Coco, 13 months, and four-year-old son Charlie.
Speaking on Instagram Live, the 'Let Me Entertain You' hitmaker shared: "Appearing on her first Robbie Williams song this Christmas is Theodora Rose Williams."
Ayda responded: "You're going to have to start including the other children."
However, Robbie bluntly told his spouse: "Teddy is the only one who can sing."
And Ayda said: "On one of them I'm singing ... It didn't make the cut."
The news of the 45-year-old singer's Christmas album comes hot off the heels of him announcing he's recorded the theme song for 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea'.
The 'I Love My Life' singer has joined forces with composer David Arnold and lyricist Don Black on 'Hey Tiger!' as the theme song for Channel 4's TV movie adaptation of Judith Kerr's classic children's book.
Robbie said: "This book has played a big part in me bonding with my kids. I've read it possibly 150 times to my first daughter, Teddy, and she is the reason I'm singing the song - I'm honouring those moments with her.
"She loved the book and I got a real heart-warming kick reading a line and her finishing it, so it will be forever in my heart. Plus I'm a massive fan of Don Black and it's an honour to be singing the words he's written.
"The song reflects the tiger's wonderful, magical and mischievous character - it's whimsical and just what a song should be in this film."
The original 1968 book follows young girl Sophie, her mother and a tiger who joins them for a hilariously chaotic teatime meal.
