Oscar Nominations Court Controversy


Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Michael Keaton Common John Legend David Oyelowo Ava DuVernay Jake Gyllenhaal Jessica Chastain Amy Adams Jennifer Aniston Roger Ebert

The reaction to this week's Oscar nominations was a loud one, because Academy voters played it so safe in a year when films expanded to explore a diverse array of themes. Throughout 2014, actors and filmmakers bravely took on big challenges, and many were recognised with nominations. But critics have been quick to point out that all of the acting and directing nominees are white, and #OscarsSoWhite was the trending hashtag on Twitter.

The most obvious snub was for Selma, which only received nods for Best Picture and Best Song (for Common and John Legend's 'Glory'), leaving out the acclaimed actor David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay, who would have been the first African-American woman ever nominated for Best Director.

John Legend - All Of Me Single Review


Possibly the singularly most romantic album of 2013, John Legend's Gold certified fourth offering 'Love in the Future' was a critical and commercial success - and it's really not hard to see why. With a collection of songs so poignant and appropriate following his subsequent marriage to model Chrissy Teigen, we knew we'd be in for something special.

John Legend - All Of Me Single Review

'All Of Me', the third single from the album, is a fine example of this. Directly written in reference to Chrissy, it shows us that there's no doubt whatsoever that John Legend is a man in love - and that's one of the things that makes this single so remarkably beautiful.

It's a piano and voice only song (only appropriate for a mushy love tune) and John's vocals are at their most unrefined. You can hear every crack in his raw, soulful verses and thus you are forced to listen intently to his heartfelt lyrics. While it's highly difficult to write a love song that isn't nauseating and with originality, John certainly doesn't go by the 'roses are red' romance formula that so many of his contemporaries do nowadays: "You're my downfall, you're my muse/ My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues". It's a genuine song that truly feels like it's been composed for someone special.

John Legend is excited to team up with Beyonce for a London concert, endorsing Chime for Change – a charity, aimed at helping girls and women around the world. The singers will perform at London’s Twickenham stadium on June 1st alongside a host of other international acts, including Florence + the Machine, Haim, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea, Laura Pausini, Rita Ora and Timbaland. Chime for Change was founded by Gucci and profits from the initiative go to various NGOs around the world, which aim to affect change in the lives of underprivileged women.

John Legend himself has been working with various organisations, focusing on women’s rights, for a long time. For The Huffington Post, the singer said he was “inspired” to act after traveling to Ghana with Millenium Promise co-founder Professor Jeffrey Sachs, who wrote The End of Poverty.

John Legend Proud To Be Part Of 'Chime For Change' As Charity Movement Is Unveiled


John Legend Beyonce Knowles

Singer John Legend has spoken of his overwhelming excitement after being asked to join the likes of Beyonce, Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and actress Salma Hayek Pinault for the Chime For Change charity project. Speaking to the Huffington Post, the singer discussed his involvement in the charity concert and discussed what Chimes For Change hopes to achieve, as well as detailing his admiration for Mrs Carter, with whom he will be sharing a stage with at the Twickenham-based festival this summer.

'It's a pretty dynamic group of people and I'm proud to be part of it,' he told the online journal during his recent visit to London, before going on to detail his admiration for the show's host and headliner Beyonce and why it makes 'it makes perfect sense' for the show to be held in the UK capital. The charity movement itself aims to curtail poverty and give everyone an equal chance, and as Beyonce put it in a recent video message addressing the charity, 'Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible.'

The global campaign for female empowerment will culminate with the Chimes For Change concert at London’s Twickenham Stadium on 1 June will feature, as well as Beyonce and Legend, Ellie Goulding, Florence + the Machine, HAIM, Iggy Azalea, Laura Pausini, Rita Ora and Timbaland.

Chrissy Teigan's Marriage Ultimatum To John Legend: "If It's Not This Year, I'm Out"


Christine Teigen John Legend

American model Chrissy Teigen has given an ultimatum to her Grammy Award-winning boyfriend John Legend: he has until the end of the year to marry her. Teigen has been dating Legend for seven years, before the 27-year-old became engaged to him in December 2011. However, after the date being pushed back several times, Teigen has finally announced that Legend is to marry her by the end of 2013, or she's "out". She lamented: ''We keep pushing the date.''

After being asked about when they might be married, Teigen revealed:'' Definitely this year, but this year just started. If it's not this year, I'm out.'' The model, known for being a Sports Illustrated cover girl, suggested that they got engaged for the first time because they had been receiving a lot of pressure from family and friends, and said harassment has not stopped since the engagement.

Bruce Springsteen Is The 2013 Musicares Person Of The Year


Bruce Springsteen Sting Alabama Shakes Neil Young Elton John Mumford And Sons John Legend

Sting, Alabama Shakes, Neil Young, Elton John Mumford & Sons and John Legend all paid tribute to Bruce Springsteen as he was named Musicares Person of the Year for 2013 at last night's pre-Grammy award show. 

The event recognises a star's philanthropic work as well as their efforts as an artist, something that "The Boss" - as Springsteen has become known - can't separate. "Whatever philanthropy I've ever done usually involved playing the guitar," he said. "I was going to play the guitar anyway." In attendance were some previous honourees: Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett and Bonnie Raitt. Springsteen is a deserving honoree "because he lives his life in such an exemplary way," Raitt said before the gala. "He's committed to his art. He's a good family man. He's a real inspiration for how to give back. I couldn't fault him in any aspect of his life."

Springsteen said of receiving the award, "It's kind of a freaky experience. This is the huge Italian wedding Patti and I never had. I had one of the loveliest nights of my life ...John Legend made me sound like Gershwin. Neil Young made me sound like the Sex Pistols. What a night." He also talked about the power and magic of music, adding, "The Taliban will never win, not now or ever, by banning music and dancing. The minute you do that, you label yourself a tyrant and your cruel days are numbered."

Quentin Tarantino - Django Unchained: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album Review


Well, this is the soundtrack to a western, but it's also the soundtrack to the bloody new vision of Quentin Tarantino so while it hints at it, it's not exactly the most classical collection of dusty old desert songs you could imagine. It's a soundtrack that packs just as many punches as his movie and brands those wincingly visceral scenes into your mind as if it was an 'r' on Jamie Foxx's face.

Django Unchained: Soundtrack Album Review

From Ennio Morricone to Rick Ross it's a thrilling OST that somehow manages to modernise the western without completely ruining it in the process, I mean perhaps Rick Ross out of context is a little jarring, but John Legend's 'Who Did That to You?' is the smarmy second gun in Foxx's hand after you think he's all out of bullets. It's drawling guitar line wails with a lone gunman swagger as Legend's R&B vocals cry out with an over the top pulp. This more than any other song on the soundtrack encapsulates your thoughts of not what a Tarantino western is, but what it should be. 

It's difficult to pick out tracks here that are better than the rest, they're all good, but this isn't a record in the usual sense, it's a soundtrack, obviously, and therefore it's about the feeling it brings with it and Tarantino's choices of tracks like 'Freedom' ring with the authenticity of classic slavery hymnals. It's a record that feels as sadistic and redemptive as the tale is on screen and it's a testament to these musicians that you don't need to see the film to understand the tale. It's spliced with some of the finest cuts of dialogue and death from the movie which add an extra layer of texture to this inspired collection and mean that you get to hear Christoph Waltz say, 'five thousand dollar n***a, that's practically my middle name' as much as you bloody well please.

'Demand A Plan' PSA: Hollywood's Biggest Stars Unite Against Gun Violence


Beyonce Knowles Will Ferrell Reese Witherspoon Jamie Foxx Jessica Alba Zooey Deschanel John Legend

On the same day that the NRA calls for there to be armed guards at all schools, celebrities have come together to film a campaign video for 'Demand a Plan', which asks the government to do just that- come up with a plan to tackle the national epidemic of gun violence. The plan that the NRA offers is definitely not the answer that these celebs are after.

As stars, including Beyonce, Jamie Foxx, Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel and John Legend, among many more, speak the names of cities, and the names of places, they also ask their core question: How many more? Fundamentally, there can't be any more, enough is enough. And this is precisely why they are demanding a plan. The video- which you can see below- is linked to the Demand a Plan website, the homepage of which has three main requests:

1. Require a criminal background check for every gun sold in America

John Legend Reflects On Django Unchained Soundtrack


John Legend

With Django Unchained featuring a soundtrack including the likes of John Legend, Ennio Morricone, Tupac and James Brown, there’s as much hype about its music as there is the actual film itself.

Legend sat down with Rolling Stone to describe the track that he’s contributed to, a soulful number called ‘What He Did To You’. "I had been reading about the film, very early on when it was in development, and I knew I wanted to write something for it," Legend told the publication. "But he didn't ask me to write it.” Expanding on the themes of the song, he commented "It's about retribution, it's about avenging your lover's honor, it's about a desire to find your love and exact retribution on whoever harmed her, which obviously fits perfectly with the plot of Django."

The film’s issues of slavery and racism are deeply ingrained in the current generation of black Americans, and Legend is no different; much of his reading at University concerned African American history, and he saw a chance to take that and pin it to the Django soundtrack. "A lot of my undergrad studies were about reading about American history and African American history, and America's long struggle with racism and how we deal with race and how important that struggle has been to the forming of this country," he said, a University of Pennsylvania grad. "These are things that I have thought about for years."

Out Now: US Album Releases, Django Unchained OST Features Rick Ross, Chief Keef Banks On Hip-Hop Heavyweight Support, Eric Clapton's Slowhand Revisited


Eric Clapton T.I Chief Keef Rick Ross Wiz Khalifa 50 Cent Young Jeezy Quentin Tarantino Jamie Foxx John Legend Frank Ocean Ennio Morricone

A mixed week for US albums releases; old classics given an airing, a major movie soundtrack launched and hip-hop arTIsts new and old having a stab at chart success. Currently, the top of the US album chart is dominated by Taylor Swift, who’s back at the top with Red, Wiz Khalifa, riding high at number two with O.N.F.C. and Rod Stewart’s festive compilation album, Merry Christmas, Baby.

Eric Clapton’s Slowhand gets a 35th anniversary reissue, having been remastered from the original “1/4 tape. There are four album session outtakes, entitled ‘Looking at the Rain,’ ‘Alberta,’ ‘Greyhound Bus,’ and ‘Stars, Strays and Ashtrays.’ A second disc contains a live performance at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, from April 27, 1977.

One for the completists, then – and more a case of Clapton’s record label rubbing their hands in glee at a cash in, than any real significant moment in his career. The re-release of Slowhand has hardly set the music press alight and we probably don’t need to fetch any fire blankets for the albums chart, either.
