2.Kelly Clarkson takes on Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Good Reason”….and it’s amazing….
In a recent performance on Siruis XM radio, Ms. Kelly Clarkson decided to have some fun and take on the classic ’95 hit, “Give Me One Reason,” by Tracy Chapman. The result? Simply amazing. While the original certainly has its sensual, soulful feel, Ms. Kel took it to a whole new level, adding in a rougher vocal quality mixed with a breezy, bluesy tone. Prepare to be dazzled-once again-by Ms. Clarkson below. She’s the original ‘American Idol’ for a reason, kids.
3.Pharrell Williams speaks out about “Blurred Lines” trial verdict….
While Mr, Williams, Robin Thicke and T.I. released a joint statement about that recent “Blurred Lines’ trial verdict, none of the music gentlemen have individually spoken out about it…until now. In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Pharrell stated, “The verdict handicaps any creator out there who is making something that might be inspired by something else. This applies to fashion, music, design, anything. If we lose our freedom to be inspired we’re going to look up one day and the entertainment industry as we know it will be frozen in litigation. This is about protecting the intellectual rights of people who have ideas.” Music truth at its finest….

Now that FOX’s runaway smash show ‘Empire’ has just ended its epic first season, it’s only natural to be already thinking about season 2….especially if you’re breakout star Jussie Smullett, who has Oprah at the top of his guest star wish list. He would also like to see Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Brandy….and Kanye West. However, according to Billboard.com, there was one name that came up repeatedly with the entire cast…the one-and-only, Denzel Washington. Sounds like a match made in ‘Empire’ heaven, doesn’t it?
