And now the re-enactment....
In the past, Kid Rock did not allow his music to be posted on iTunes or anywhere else on the internet. He didn't like the concept of his fans purchasing individual songs rather than his entire album. His music will now be availible online but no at iTunes. It will be availible at Rhapsody, where you will be able to buy his full albums for $10.
So apparently their has been a lot of friction between Chad Hugo and Pharell over the last few years. So much the the dynamic production duo may be cutting ties with each other completely. Pharrell is the most notable member of the neptunes but Chad Hugo is responsible for a lot of hot beats they have pushed out over the last decade.
It's a shame because the Neptunes were a production powerhouse.
It is rumored that Pharell, Lil Wayne and Kanye West will all appear on the new Fall Out Boy album. This sounds like it will be an awesome combination of music.
Pete Wentz was quoted as saying this...
"We got Wayne and Debbie Harry cameos done," wrote FOB frontman Pete Wentz, also revealing that Debbie Harry of Blondie would be making an appearence. " Pharrell produced a track too."
"I just think the record is going to be diverse," wrote Wentz. "It goes all the way between [Blondie and Wayne]."
Lil Wayne and Kanye West featured on the "Arms Race Remix" on Fall Out Boy's previous album. Check it out....
According to British Vogue, he was sitting in the second row wearing a red thong above his jeans, with slicked-backed hair dyed blonde and brown, sucking on a tampon.
He also clapped along to the music and generally pissed off the peeps in the front row by continually pushing them aside whenever he wanted a good look at the models.
This movie is going to be hilarious!
Here is a clip of Bruno in action!
* Steve Jobs is awesome. He recognizes that Apple runs the digital downloading sector of the music industry and has no problem shutting it down. He doesn't let anyone fuck around with him.*
The Copyright Royalty Board in Washington, D.C. was considering a motion to increase the royalty rate paid by Apple to music publishers and the record labels from 9 cents to 15 cents. That caused Apple to threaten to shut iTunes down should they be forced to pay this increased rate. However, on Thursday the Copyright Royalty Board prevented the raise in royalty payouts.
It didn't, however, back up Apple's suggestion of lowering rates.
So, as of now, publishers will continue to get their 9 out of the 99 cents iTunes charges for songs.
Eddy Cue, iTunes vice president said that if the royalties were raised to 15 cents, then it would cause song sales to go down and Apple to probably operate at a loss.
Cue said, "Apple has repeatedly made clear it is in the business to make money and most likely would not continue to operate iTunes store if it were no longer possible to do so profitably."
So basically Apple wants to pay artists less for them to make more.
