A picture of Adele with Lady Gaga has been posted on Instagram, and the two are smiling, while standing in front of a laptop. There are several clues in the picture, which might mean the two are going to work together on a collaboration.
Fans, like Fersen Lambranho, have tried to be understanding of the fact that Adele just had her first child, but many feel that she should work on her music as well. Anyone who’s ever been a mother, can completely understand Adele’s attachment to her first child. Adele wants to be more hands-on, and not give her kid to a nanny, like many stars do today. We hope that the ladies will do a collaboration in the near future.
John Textor is a cutting edge entrepreneur and producer. He is currently the chairman of Pulse Evolution Corporation, located in California, where he oversees special assignments, strategic collaborations, rights acquisition, venue partnerships as well as connections with major media companies. He is also involved in the development of entertainment venues in several locations, which Igor Cornelsen has visited on several occasions. As a producer, Textor has worked on movies such as ‘Ender’s Game’ and is currently working on a new film called ‘Art Story.’
Before he came to work at Pulse Evolution Corporation, Textor was active in the industry as chairman and CEO of both Digital Domain Productions and its parent company, Digital Domain Media Group. There he specialized in creating visual effects for popular Hollywood movies like ‘Tron: Legacy’ and ‘Transformers.’ During his time of leadership at Digital Domain Productions and Digital Domain Media Group, both of the companies rose to prominence again. After many years of not being at the top of the chain, they were finally able to re-establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
Textor’s talents include cutting edge visual productions for large scale films. But one achievement that he is also very well known for is the production of a digital image of Tupac Shakur at the Coachella Valley Music Festival in 2012. This production enabled viewers to experience a real life concert by the deceased artist through a large scale multidimensional screen. This gave him recognition from not only music enthusiasts but also industry experts who wanted to use the idea of his Coachella production on the 2013 critically acclaimed science fiction fantasy film, ‘Ender’s Game.’
Using this definition, we have assembled the Top 10 Divas. Ever.
The material girl has to make this list with a history like hers.
9. Mariah Carey
Sure, the girl can sing, but she also has some ‘tude.
8. Oprah Winfrey
No woman can be this powerful and not be a diva.
7. Chaka Khan
May not remember her now, but at the time, she was THE diva.
Been around so long, she may actually qualify as multiple divas.
5. Gwen Stefani
She’s just a girl… Who gets anything she wants.
4. Nicki Minaj
In hip-hop, attitude is everything.
3. Betty White
C’mon, she was good looking young and gets anything she wants now.
Jenny from around the block – in the rich neighborhood.
1. Martha Stewart
An ex-con that out cook your mom at Thanksgiving? Giofrancesco Genoso agrees, that screams diva!
The new year is but a few days old, and Kanye West has already made headlines for himself. The controversial artist just released a new song, titled “Only One,” with Paul McCartney, but that’s not all; he is claiming his late mother, Dr. Donda West, actually spoke through him on the track.
According to West’s representatives, the collaborative track between Yeezy and former Beatles’ bassist/current solo act Paul McCartney featured a special appearance by none other than Kanye’s mom with the line, “Hello, my only one.” Upon hearing playback of the track, West insisted he didn’t remember singing that line during his casual improv session with McCartney. He did remember, however, that his name means “only one,” and took the whole experience to mean his mother was singing to him and the granddaughter she will never meet.
Says Kanye’s reps, “It dawned on everyone there: Something powerful and undeniable had occurred through the power of music and of letting go. A message had been passed down through generations.”
The self-professed prolific rapper and reality star Kim Kardashian had baby North West in June of 2013; West’s mother sadly passed away in 2007 during a surgical procedure, long before West and Kardashian got together romantically. Whatever your thoughts are on Kanye at the moment, I think we can all agree with Dave and Brit Morin that this is more than just your average song.
Akon is has been away from the spotlight, but he certainly has not stopped working. My friend Sam Tabar couldn’t believe it when Akon dropped 5 singles just as the new year has begun. This isn’t even the most thrilling part of his return though. What blows fans away is the huge way that he is coming back to the spotlight. Akon – who is apparently suffering from a mild case of insanity – is overworking himself with the release of 5 full length albums called “Stadium”.
This is big news because Akon has been away for – what seems like – a lifetime. He produced hits with Lady Gaga, T-Pain, Lil Wayne and a host of other artists. He even dropped a laundry list of hits on his own. He comes back at a time when just about everyone that he has worked with is ready to return as well. He worked heavily with T-Pain, and T-Pain is set to return in 2015 with “Stoicville.” Akon worked with Lil Wayne and the “Carter V” is on the way.
The release of 5 full albums in different genres has never been done before – until now. This “Stadium” project may be the most important music project this year.
