FROM THE NEWS NEST: George Michael going to jail and more.
Guys, do you remember when George Michael (pictured) was this crazy hot sex icon making model-filled music videos like “Freedom”? The talented musician has long since gone the way of tabloid fodder, and he’s making headlines again as the 47-year-old singer has been given an 8-week jail sentence for crashing his car into a store back in July while under the influence of cannabis.
We love that so many musicians are deciding to play whole records in concert: first Weezer, then A Perfect Circle and now My Morning Jacket will perform a five-night stand in New York City this October in order to perform all of the band’s studio albums. My Morning Jacket will be releasing a new studio album next year.
It’s not real news, but we dug this interview that Chromeo did with Billboard about their first major label album, and how they’re big goals for the album are artistic rather than financial. Smart move, guys. It’s nice to see a band has a lot of brains as well as talent.
