    The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) called the concerts "a propaganda gift to Israeli apartheid.” Despite the best efforts of Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Thurston Moore, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe and other Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) supporters, Nick Cave has played one concert in Tel Aviv and is scheduled to play another tonight. The dates are a continuation of an otherwise-Euro tour, and the Israeli headlines praising Cave are already flooding the internet with joy at the artist’s sanction breakthrough. The prince of darkness appeared at a press conference yesterday to explain...

We do not know if the alleged incident occurred at the restaurant.The LAPD is mum on the identity of...

    Singer Cee Lo Green just finished performing his hit song at President Obama's campaign fundraiser at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Ga., and he started with the uncensored version. The Grammy-winner and Atlanta native flicked off the audience before asking, "Can I curse in here?" But he didn't wait for the answer, letting out a loud "f*** you!" Cee Lo ultimately switched to the censored "Forget You" lyrics.
  • Imagine there's no simplistic religious imagery… Cee Lo Green Changes Lyrics of Lennon's Iconic Hit

    Something big, round and heavy fell with a clang in Times Square on New Year's Eve, and it wasn't the ball on the flagpole. Cee Lo Green sang a version of Imagine in which he changed John Lennon's lyric "and no religion, too" to "and all religion is true". Outraged Lennon fans didn't need to use 132 of their Twitter characters to tell Cee Lo what they thought of him. On the other hand, perhaps they were just reminding him of his most infamous song title. Among the New Year's Day tweets, I imagine there were one or two that...

    It was, in it’s way, a great moment. Dumb and profound at once. On NBC television, singer Cee Lo Green ushered in 2012 at a Times Square studio by singing John Lennon​’s leftist anthem “Imagine,” only he updated an originally atheist lyric so that it now came out as a multiculturally sensitive, ecumenical one. In 1971, Lennon wrote and sang about his paradise on earth, in which there’s “nothing to kill or die for/and no religion too.” Green changed that to “nothing to kill or die for/and all religion’s true.”
  • The Cee Lo Green Budget : Obama presents to the country, cynical and unrealistic White House budget

    This was supposed to be the moment we were all waiting for. After three years of historic deficits that have added almost $4.5 trillion to the national debt, President Obama was finally going to get serious about fiscal discipline. Instead, what landed on Congress's doorstep on Monday was a White House budget that increases deficits above the spending baseline for the next two years. Hosni Mubarak was more in touch with reality last Thursday night. The White House actually touts as tight-fisted a budget proposing a record $1.645 trillion deficit for fiscal 2011, due largely to a new surge in...
