Rapper 50 Cent has defended ‘X Factor’ contestant Honey G, whose act has been branded ‘racist’ by some viewers.

The 35-year-old, whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford, has become this year’s most controversial contestant, thanks to her take on a number of rap tracks.

But 50 has hit back at accusations that Honey G is ‘appropriating black culture’ or making a mockery of rap and hip hop, by saying that anyone who thinks the act is racist doesn't ‘know what racism really is’.

Isle of Wight Festival 2014 Preview


With just hours until thousands of people flock to Portsmouth and Southampton for their annual ferry trip to the Isle of Wight Festival, it's time to look ahead to the first big event in the summer festival calendar.

Isle of Wight Festival 2014 Preview

Twelve years since the festival was resurrected, organiser John Giddings has steered Isle of Wight from strength to strength. With around 60,000 punters travelling to the Island, it's not just Seaclose Park that's transformed for the weekend, there's a real community spirit that's evident as buses wind their way towards the festival site. Past years have seen a surprise appearance from Kanye West for Jay-Z's headline set, rock royalty like Jagger, McCartney and Neil Young take to the main stage, and bands such as the Foo Fighters casually chatting to fans on the car ferry. This year looks like it will live up to the festival's reputation without a repeat of 2012's well-publicised mud bath. Although there's perhaps not many surprises on the line-up, there's still plenty to look forward to.

The top twelve to watch from June 12:
Boy George PerformingBoy GeorgeIf you're arriving early, the former Culture Club front man is headlining the Thursday night festivities. But far from a nostalgia act, George is touring his first album of original material in 18 years. He's embraced DJ culture and is likely to put on an impressive show whether he's behind the turntable or the microphone.

Boy George - This Is What I Do Album Review


Sometimes being part of a successful band can hinder a musician.  There aren't many legendary lead singers who have had solo careers that matched their band's successes.  Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Mick Jagger, Roger Daltrey and Morrissey all had, and still have, great solo careers, however they certainly don't match that of the bands they fronted.  The same can be said for Boy George.  Fronting Culture Club, he was an icon of the '80s and is still very much an icon for millions all over the world, yet like the aforementioned stars, his solo projects have failed to have the same impact.

Boy George - This Is What I Do Album Review

He really needs no introduction, his reputation precedes him.  He's a one-off character and the music world would be a slightly duller place without him. 'This Is What I Do' is his ninth solo offering and, despite all we read about this superstar, we must remember that he is a musician first. One thing to remind us of that and one thing that has never changed is his soulful voice; this is apparent throughout the record.

The most Culture Club-like track on the album is upbeat catchy reggae song 'My Star'. Joined by rapper Unknown MC, it is sure to be the one you'll have on repeat - it's Boy George at his best.  A reggae and ska feel to any Boy George album is, of course, expected; 'Live your Life' and 'Nice and Slow' are exactly that, not to mention 'Play Me' which features MC Spee. This combination works incredibly well; it's smooth, edgy and immediate.  Another featuring artist includes Nizar Al-Issa who features on the album's last track 'Feel the Vibration'.  This is a glorious ending to a fantastic album.

Yoko Ono's Meltdown Performers Include Boy George, Patti Smith And Thurston Moore


Yoko Ono Boy George Patti Smith Thurston Moore

Yoko Ono has announced the bulk of the names for her Meltdown Festival line-up to take place in London this year, with the former wife of John Lennon staying true to her vision to create a line-up based on concept and not going all out for big names for the sake of it.

Names announced for the event, which takes place at London’s Southbank Centre for a week and a half in June, include Patti Smith, Boy George, Siouxsie Sioux and Iggy and The Stooges. Back in November, upon the announcement that Ono would be taking on the curator’s role, she commented "I'm not pursuing big names for the sake of big names. I'm thinking along the lines of a concept, which is more refreshing. There will definitely be an element of feminism and the plight of women … [and] I am thinking of having one or two events where I ask men to say something strong about themselves too."

That’s certainly a concept she’s stuck too with the line-up announced so far. Alongside these more established names, Ono also has the likes of up and coming post-punk group Savages, as well as the likes of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore, formerly of Sonic Youth, Peaches and comedian Reggie Watts. Ono herself will perform with the Plastic Ono Band. Additionally there will be various talks, panels and film screenings over the event. "It's not only a great honour to curate Meltdown in its 20th year," Ono said in a press release, according to The Guardian "it's also a lot of fun."

The One Direction boys seemed in pretty high spirits at the BRIT Awards in London last night. There was Harry, dancing around the stage like a lunatic, Louis helping himself to the complimentary fizz, Zayn looking all mysterious and broody, and the little Irish fella was presumably just happy to be there. But what about Liam? Something appeared to have riled our Liam, and we may have found the answer. Ready for this? Deep breath.

80's pop star Boy George - who debuted a slimmer, altogether healthier look this week - was at the bash with his young niece, getting snaps with her favourite pop stars. Now, there appears to have been some confusion when the One Direction boys came there way. Later on Twitter, the Karma Chameleon hit-maker wrote, "Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and B*llox's to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!" adding, "Stars of the night, Harry Styles, Lana Del Rey, Jessie J. Too many drug f**ked twits to mention elsewhere! Emily Sande (sic) was great!" George later suggested Harry Styles would leave the band, saying, "You heard it here first!"

All We Are Saying Review


Weak
Here's an intriguing and potentially electrifying documentary concept: Rosanna Arquette gets the lowdown on life in the music biz by chatting with A-list rock stars, including Sting, Steven Tyler, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Yoko Ono, Stevie Nicks, Thom Yorke, Elton John, Mr. and Mrs. Sonic Youth, and a dozen others from the '60s through the '90s. This is gonna be great, right?

Sadly, producer, director, and "experiencer" Arquette did exactly one thing well: the title. All We Are Saying is appropriately a dull, bloated gab marathon. And since she didn't clear the featured artists' music for the movie, it's all talk, no song, not even a few bars from a stage performance. Imagine The Aristocrats without the joke, stretched out over 105 minutes.
