    The 2018 Billboard Music Awards hit a new low Sunday night in the coveted demographic of ages 18-49, dropping 10 percent from last year’s low in overnight numbers.

    Shawn Mendes made a powerful statement in solidarity with gun violence victims at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20). The singer-songwriter performed his new single “Youth” with another rapidly rising star, Khalid — as well as members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School choir from Parkland, Fla. Dressed in a t-shirt that read “Protect our guns” with a slash through the word “guns” and the word “children” replaced, Khalid harmonized with Mendes, who strummed an acoustic guitar as they delivered the song’s affecting lyrics. The song thematically champions keeping one’s spirit although times are difficult and...

  • The Last Word: Billy Joel on Self-Doubt, Trump and Finally Becoming Cool

    Critics used to give you a hard time. But it seems like in the past few years you've become cool. Look, man, Trump is president, so all kinds of weird shit can happen. What do you make of that? I'm still flabbergasted. I try to stay out of politics. I am a private citizen and I have a right to believe in my own political point of view, but I try not to get up on a soapbox and tell people how to think. I've been to shows where people start haranguing the audience about what's going on politically and...

    Detroit hip-hop station 105.1 The Bounce says it's pulling Kanye West songs off of its Morning Bounce playlist following a recent string of erratic episodes from the rapper, including West saying he believes slavery was a "choice." The station made the announcement on its Facebook page on Thursday morning. "We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that 'slavery was a choice.' We are over it," the station wrote on Facebook. "We don't want to hear Kanye's music, we don't want to play Kanye on our show, we don't want to talk about Kanye anymore....

    Storied guitar maker Gibson Brands Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection Tuesday as the company has struggled with its debt load after a series of acquisitions. The company, which filed for chapter 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, said it will continue to operate during the proceedings as it focuses on reorganizing around its core businesses. Gibson plans to wind down its Gibson’s Innovations business, which is largely outside of the U.S. The Nashville-based maker of Gibson Les Paul guitars has been struggling with debt it took on to finance acquisitions of home-entertainment and audio-equipment makers years ago. Among businesses...

    As we approach the first anniversary of The Mark Steyn Club, we'll be presenting some musical celebrations as part of the festivities, so do keep an eye on our home page as the days go by. I've always thought of our Song of the Week as perhaps our least controversial department, if only by comparison with all the war and politics and whatnot all over the rest of the site. So I was interested to discover our musical offerings are as toxic as everything else around here. Late on Friday, having brought a ten-million dollar suit against me and lost...
  • Here's Why People Now Think 'American Idol' Is Racist(WUT?!)

    "Good job at being racist and homophobic, American Idol." Those aren't my words, but they're the sentiments of plenty of fans after Sunday night's Disney-themed episode. After last night's votes were tallied, four of the show's minority contestants found themselves in elimination contention. Ada Vox, a drag queen, Jurnee, an openly gay and black contestant, Michelle Sussett, an immigrant from Venezuela, and Dennis Lorenzo, an African-American male, received the least votes after their performances. Jurnee was the only one to escape elimination. These four contestants were in the bottom because this is "Trump's America," according to some upset viewers.

    Tribune Review (Suburban Pittsburgh) ^ | 26 April 2018 | Bob Bauder
    Updated 23 minutes ago Pittsburgh's monument to native son Stephen Collins Foster has returned to its old stomping ground. A Department of Public Works crew removed the controversial statue of the Antebellum songwriter known as the father of American music early Thursday from Forbes Avenue in Oakland and hauled it by flatbed truck to a facility in Highland Park. The city will store it until officials find it a permanent home. The 1,000-pound, 10-foot-high bronze statue stood at the entrance to Oakland's Schenley Park for 74 years after the city moved it from its original location near the entrance to...

  • Why Old Songs Bring Back Memories

    04/17/2018 7:22:08 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 88 replies
    Music can serve as a particularly effective retrieval cue especially if you’re talking about a piece of music that you associate with a certain context. A song like “The National Anthem” or “Happy Birthday” (which we hear all the time) that’s not so helpful – but a song that was played during that certain summer, then that song is going to evoke memories specific to that time and place.

    An all-male choir in the United Kingdom that’s been in existence since 1956 is under assault by a local police chief, who’s demanding that women be granted access to the group in order to promote “gender equality.” Peter Goodman, who reportedly took over the Derbyshire Police force last summer, insists that the historic Derbyshire Constabulary Male Voice Choir’s men-only tradition runs counter to the force’s equal opportunity policies, which he wants to see changed to favor women at the expense of men. Back in September, Goodman asked the choir’s chairman, Kevin Griffiths, to begin accepting females, to which he declined....
