Grammy Awards May Be Cancelled, Amy Winehouse Banned?

The show doesn’t always go on. Due to the writer’s strike, next month’s Grammy Awards ceremony is in danger of getting nixed.

According to New York’s Daily News, The Writers Guild of America may demonstrate at Feb. 10’s annual Grammy ceremony in L.A. and if that happens, the strike supporters’ musical allies may pull out of the show.

There are reportedly plans in the works to get Grammy nominees with screen experience to boycott the show. Artists include Beyoncé, Queen Latifah, 50 Cent, Alicia Keys, Fantasi, Fergie, Usher, Justin Timberlake and Prince, among others.

“The writers are especially interested in artists who might perform on the show,” a source said. “If they pull out, the show comes apart.”

But nothing’s set in stone just yet.

“As of now, the Guild has not taken a position on the Grammys,” a WGA spokeswoman said.

Yet if the show does go on Brit soul sensation Amy Winehouse may not be allowed to attend. Amy is nominated in 6 categories including Record of the year for her work on Back to Black.

Her much publicized bout with drugs and alcohol has U.S. officials concerned about letting her in the country.

“Amy’s been told she needs to pass a drug test before she can get a visa,” a source told Britain paper The Sun. “She is doing much better and has cut down her drug use but is still isn’t clean.”

The troubled soul singer who rebuffed rehab in her hit song of the same name has been in and out of trouble with the law, cited for marijuana possession in Norway last October and hauled in for “perverting the course of justice” just this past December.

Winehouse’s mother wrote an open letter to her daughter in a UK newspaper, begging Amy to seek help for her drug addiction.

Now, the singer’s troubles may keep her from getting into one of the biggest music awards shows of the year.

“It is hard to believe there will be a time before going to the U.S. that she could pass the [drug] test,” the source said. “Her team (is) desperate to clean her up as the Grammys is such a big deal. But Amy’s not so bothered.”

Other big name artists nominated at this years ceremony include Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, T-Pain and super producer Timbaland, each with five nods. Kanye West, who is going up against Amy for “Record of the Year” with his third album, Graduation, has earned a total of 8 nominations.

Britney Spears, Old Wedding Dress

britney_spears2_240.jpgRevisiting her wedding look, Britney Spears donned one of two dresses from her Kevin Federline nuptials to go to a car dealership last week with her new paparazzi friend.

Spears, 26, and Adnan Ghalib, 35, arrived at the Keyes Mercedes-Benz dealership in the San Fernando Valley on Friday afternoon, surrounded by the now-familiar pack of photographers that once contained Ghalib.

The twist was the pop singer was wearing the same lacy, short dress from her 2004 wedding to Federline – her second walk down the aisle following her 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander.

Spears’s own Mercedes was impounded last week after she abandoned it on the road when it blew a tire, but this trip to the dealer was for Ghalib, her constant companion since her meltdown.

“They came in to get an estimate for a new car for him,” a sales associate says. “He drives a rental car now. … He was looking into the different lease and purchase options for sport cars.”

By the time they started talking business, Spears had covered up with a trench coat, the sales person says.

“She didn’t talk at all and it didn’t seem like she was getting the car for him,” the sales associate says.

Britney Spears has appeared in public wearing her old wedding dress; the one that she got married in to her second husband, Kevin Federline. The grand occasion was a visit to a car showroom, with her current boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib.

Britney would not stay in one place for many hours because she feared that her family would send in reinforcements and force her to be committed into a mental institution for treatment. Britney was rumored to have told a friend that she would not allow herself to be committed. She was also firm that she would not lose her sons.

Best Music Albums 2007

It’s the end of the year, and it’s time to cast our beady eye upon what were, in our opinion, the best albums released during the last 12 months.

We argued, we discussed, at times various objects were thrown, but eventually we decided on a Top 20 of 2007.

As ever, there was an eclectic selection of albums nominated, from pop to dance, metal to electronica, shoegaze revivalists to nu-rave disco groovers.

1. LCD Soundsystem – Sound Of Silver
label: DFA/EMI

In which James Murphy’s collective came of age, masterfully mixing funk, disco, rock and those inevitable cowbells into one irresistible, edgy, exhilarating cocktail. From the stately grandeur of All My Friends to the resigned piano tones of New York I Love You, Sound of Silver was the sound of James Murphy at the top of his game.
What we said: “Sound Of Silver is a thrilling, exhilarating ride on a fast machine…You’d be mad to miss out on one of this year’s essential albums” 

2. M.I.A. – Kala
label: XL

The follow-up to the extraordinary Arular saw the Sri Lanka-born rapper burst back into our lives with tribal rhyhms, Clash samples, rapping aboriginal teenagers and the sound of gunshots. The year’s most eclectic album.
What we said: “this is a record as substantive as it is stylish…you can’t help but admire Kala” 

3. Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare
label: Domino

Alex Turner turned his lyrical eye to the music business, and proved as devastatingly perceptive as he was when catching taxis and going clubbing as a teenager in Sheffield. An album which showed South Yorkshire’s finest maturing and evolving at a frightening pace.
What we said: “The more you listen to it, the more these glorious songs reveal their delights, and soon you won’t be able to live without it” 

4. Radiohead – In Rainbows
label: Radiohead.com

So how much did you pay? In all the talk about the revolutionary nature the way the album was released, what was nearly lost was the fact that this was Radiohead’s best album in a decade – lush ballads rubbed shoulders with industrial rockers, and Thom Yorke has never sounded more affecting.
What we said: “Packed but sparse, thrilling, complex, innovative, simple. Without even a dud bar never mind a filler track, In Rainbows is more than any fan could hope for” 

5. !!! – Myth Takes
label: Warp

Three years on from their debut album, the follow up to Louden Up Now saw the Californian band build on their trademark experimental sound and embellish it into a sound like nothing else quite on Earth.
What we said: “It’ll take a few listens to be pulled towards Myth Takes by the force that operates at its core… but step in any closer and you’ll be sucked in, for sure”

6. Arcade Fire – Neon Bible
label: Sonovox

How do you better Funeral? You can’t, but the Canadians come pretty damn close on their second album – uplifting, delicate, deranged and never anything less than utterly compelling.
What we said: “By any standards, excepting those which the band have, through deed, set, it’s a wondrous record”

7. Asobi Seksu – Citrus
label: One Little Indian

In a year where My Bloody Valentine reformed, it was perhaps fitting that the second album from Asobi Seksu took elements of the shoegazing scene and brought it right up to date for 2007.
What we said: “There’s plenty of pop tunes here, but there’s also enough self expression and leftfield rambling to make this an album of real interest”

8. The Good The Bad & The Queen – The Good The Bad & The Queen
label: Parlophone

In which Damon Albarn linked up with an African drumming legend, a former guitarist from The Verve and the bassist from The Clash to provide a record which held a mirror up to the country – battered, bruised, but with a glorious sense of majesty to it.
What we said: “A remarkable achievement and more proof – if any were needed – that Albarn is one of the most innovative and talented songwriters of his generation.”

9. Simian Mobile Disco – Attack Decay Sustain Release
label: Wichita

James Ford may be better known as producer of Klaxons and Arctic Monkeys, but he’s also half of arguably Britain’s most exciting new dance act – more old school house than nu-rave and all the better for it.
What we said: “It’s difficult to detect any flaws in Attack Decay Sustain Release. Simian Mobile Disco have created a seamless electronica album”

10. The White Stripes – Icky Thump
label: XL

Jack and Meg marked their return with a ‘back to basics’ blues-rock squeal of a record – featuring bagpipe samples, 70s country-rock, and an absolutely berserk marachi number, Icky Thump also contained some of Jack White’s best songs yet.
What we said: “Never less than absolutely compelling, which is what makes The White Stripes one of the greatest bands of modern times”

Elvis Birthday – Elvis Presley Birthday

Elvis fans around the world will celebrate Elvis’s birthday on January 8.In Memphis, fans were able to enjoy four days of celebrations with special birthday events, including an Elvis Birthday Pops Concert, Elvis Insiders Reception and Tour, the Elvis Birthday Proclamation on the front lawn of Graceland.

The Elvis Presley Fan Club will continue its tradition of meeting at the gates of the late Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion for his birthday celebration. His former wife, Priscilla Presley will participate in this ceremony for the first time this year.

At 7 p.m., the NBA Memphis Grizzlies will host the Elvis Birthday Grizzlies game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The game will include Elvis-themed music and performances with a half-time show featuring the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist of 2007, Shawn Klush.

The legendary singer was born January 8th, 1935, and would have been 73 years old this year. Elvis died at Graceland on August 16, 1977.
1945 – The facts concerning Elvis’s first guitar vary. One account claims Elvis bought a $7.75 guitar from the Tupelo Hardware Company because he wanted to accompany himself when he sang. Elvis paid for part of his 10th birthday present from money he had earned doing odd jobs around the neighborhood. The owner of the store claims that Elvis was more interested in buying a rifle, but that his mother Gladys feared he would shoot someone or himself. Another story tell of Elvis wish for a new bicycle but could not afford the $55.00 to price tag. And Gladys was concerned that her precious 10 year old could injury himself, even though Elvis could be seen driving his parent to church meetings in a rusted-out truck by the time he could reach the pedals. Together with a local teacher and his uncle Vester Presley Elvis learned to play the instrument.

How Elvis celebrate his birthdays throughout his lifetime

1951 – Elvis’ 16th Birthday. Girls were frightened of him because his appearance was so unconventional. Some felt he acted as if he had a nervous disorder while most agreed he had the manners of a hog on heat when Elvis was around the opposite sex.
1953 – Vernon and Gladys paid $50 for a 1952 Lincoln Zephyr coupe which they gave to Elvis on his 18th birthday. With wheels like any other teenager Elvis discovered freedom which scared his mother. Gladys did not know how to drive, so she used the excuse to get Elvis to drive her everywhere.

1954 – Elvis, his mother Gladys and his father Vernon celebrated is birthday singing inspirational songs at their home.

1955 – Elvis performed at the Louisiana Hayride concerts, watched by Hank Williams’s son, Jimmy Rodgers Snow who reported back to Col Parker that Elvis was provocative, sexy and appealed to all women. (sssh, we already knew that)

1956 – Elvis’s 21st birthday was spent on the road going to and from Louisiana Hayride appearances.

1957 – Elvis traveled by train to Hollywood on his 22nd birthday. Scotty Moore, Bill Black & DJ Fontana who co-starred in Loving You, shared a birthday cake that Gladys had baked.

1958 – Elvis was in California to record his Christmas album.

1959 – Dick Clark’s American Bandstand dedicated its program to Elvis 24th birthday. It was the first birthday Elvis ever spent without his mother’s well wishes.

1960 – Rumours had it that United Artists wanted Elvis to play the lead role in West Side Story. The Colonel turned it down because the character dies a brutal death.

1961 – Elvis celebrated his 26th birthday with Hope Lang on the set of Wild In The Country. He was in a foul mood because Col Parker insisted he record the title track from the movie which Elvis thought was a non-singing role.
1962 – On his 27th birthday Dick Clark dedicated his broadcast of American Bandstand to Elvis.

1964 – Elvis did not want to celebrate his 29th birthday as he was upset about the way his flagging movie career and became violent at how the critics were panning his movies.
1965 – Elvis celebrated his 30th birthday quietly at home, thought some newspapers printed the news of his 30th birthday like it was the end of an era. However, two months later Elvis declared in an interview: “I can never forget the longing to be someone. I guess if you are poor you always think bigger and want more than those who have everything.” On that day Elvis signed a 3-picture contract with MGM and there was talk of Elvis starring in BABY THE RAIN MUST FALL. However, Steve McQueen got the lead role of Henry Thomas an ex-con who had a band called the Rockabillies. In the film McQueen remarks, “Maybe I’ll be a big movie star like Elvis Presley…”

1967 – Marty Lacker, Charlie Hodge and the other members of the Memphis Mafia got together and present Elvis with “tree-of-life” medallion for his 32nd birthday which Elvis often wore.

1968 – Just months into his marriage and the honeymoon was over. Elvis just wanted things to stay the same (horsing around with the guys) although his was wed and about to become a father.

1970 – Elvis prepared for his next concert tour throughout the States. Elvis was happy to perform before a live audience again. To-date his most successful concert was at New York, Madison Square Garden

1971 – The day after his 36th birthday Jaycees voted Elvis Ten Outstanding Young Men of America. The tribute brought tears of joy and was the only award Elvis accepted in person. As Priscilla watched on
