Adele Emerges to Attend Prince Concert in London

Niki Nikolova/FilmMagicWhile Adele keeps mostly to herself these days, one thing that can get her out in public is a great concert.  Last year, she made the scene at Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga concerts, and on Monday night, she stepped out to check out an intimate show by Prince.

The British paper The Daily Mirror reports that Prince staged the gig at the legendary London venue Ronnie Scott's, which only seats 140. The gig started at midnight and ran 'til 3am, but that didn't stop Adele from turning up, along with the likes of Kate Moss, Michelle Rodriguez, model Cara Delevigne, actor Steven Fry and Nile Rodgers of Chic and Daft Punk fame.

Adele wore a hat and bulky striped coat  to the gig, making her harder to spot than most of the other stars in attendance.

Prince has been playing spontaneous, so-called "guerilla gigs" in London, as part of what he's calling the Hit and Run Tour, playing classics and surprise numbers.

Rihanna Lands Third Vogue Cover; Discusses Fashion Choices

VOGUE/David SimmsThis week sees Rihanna celebrating her 26th birthday -- on February 20 -- and gracing her third cover of Vogue. She appears on the front of the magazine's March 2014 issue, in which she discusses a wide range of topics, from her love of Instagram to wanting to launch her own fashion label.

The singer reveals how she's able to endure her sometimes painful fashion choices. "It’s not about pain. It’s about the commitment," she tells the publication.  "I say to myself, 'I want to look like this,' and worry about the pain later."

She adds, "I’ve had nights I had to tiptoe home and the balls of my feet wouldn’t even allow me to stand."

Rihanna say her bold fashion statements have led many to perceive her as a rebel.

"I don’t go out of my way to be a rebel or to have that perception. But a lot of the decisions I make, a lot of the direction I want to move, is against the grain, or against society’s tight lane, and I’m aware of that sometimes," she says. "It might not be fitting with the norm, but that’s OK for me."

The March issue hits newsstands on February 25.

Kanye West Taps 'American Psycho' Author for New Movie

Def Jam

 

Kanye West is headed to the big screen. The rapper has teamed with American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis to write the screenplay for an upcoming film inspired by Kanye’s latest album, Yeezus.

"He came and asked me to write the film. I didn't want to at first. Then I listened to Yeezus," the famed writer told Vice.com in a recent interview.

"It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car. He'd given me an advance copy and I thought, regardless of whether I'm right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this. So f**k it, I said yes," Ellis explained. "And that's how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We'll see what happens."

Ellis remained mum on the details, and said he remains unsure of the timing of the proejct. "It’s in Kanye-land and that’s subject to a whole other timeframe," he says.

Kanye has had an ongoing connection with Ellis' work. He created a YouTube spoof of American Psycho as a promotion for Yeezus and also created a trailer "remix" for The Canyons, which Ellis wrote.

Founding Devo Member Bob Casale Passes Away at Age 61

Devo: Bob Casale, second from left (Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage)Devo guitarist Bob Casale has died.  According to a message on the band's official website from his brother and band mate, singer/keyboardist Gerald Casale, the 61-year-old musician passed away suddenly on Monday "from conditions that led to heart failure," and that his death "came as a total shock to us all."

Gerald notes that Bob "was there in the trenches with me from the beginning.  He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got."  He also reveals that his sibling "was excited about the possibility of [lead singer] Mark Mothersbaugh allowing Devo to play shows again."

Casale's death comes less than eight months after Devo's best-known drummer, Alan Myers, passed away at age 58 following a battle with stomach cancer.

Bob was a member Devo for nearly the band's entire career.  In addition to playing guitar, he also sang backing vocals and contributed keyboards to the group's recordings, which include the top 20 hit "Whip It" and such memorable New Wave tunes as "Girl U Want," "Freedom of Choice" and the band's kinetic cover of The Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."

Former Members of Runaways, Guns n' Roses to Play MS Benefit, Lita Ford to Receive Guitar Player Award

Rock Against MS FoundationFormer members of the Runaways and Guns N' Roses are among the talent of a benefit concert in L.A.. Called "Rock Against MS," this will mark the second annual show to raise money toward research on multiple sclerosis.

Set to take the stage at the Whisky A Go-Go is a long list of friends of Nancy B. Sayle, a rock publicist afflicted with MS who has begun a fundraising foundation to fight the disease. More than a dozen artists will participate, including former Runaways Lita Ford and Cherie Currie, ex-GunsN' Roses guitarist Gilby ClarkeJack Russell's Great White, former Megadeth bassist James LoMenzo and ex-Filter bassist Phil Buckman.

Also, according to Blabbermouth.net, reps from Guitar Player magazine will be on hand to award Lita Ford with the magazine's Certified Guitar Player award.

Guitar Player editor-in-chief Michael Molenda says that Ford deserves the honor -- which the magazine first bestowed in 2002, with Les Paul as its first recipient -- because she "slugged it out with the boys club in an era where female musicians who liked to rock hard had very few heroes."

"But Lita was there, and man, did she cut a heroic figure," he adds. "She was tough. She was smart. She could write a good song. And she could shred. Since the Runaways in the late 1970s, and throughout her solo career, Lita has been a beacon of cool, and an inspiration for girls AND boys who want to express themselves through the guitar. She is the definition of a certified legend."

The Rock Against MS benefit takes place on March 26.

Mariah Gives More Details About Twins' Part on New Album; She & Nick Pull Mansion Off Market 

Image Couresy Mariah Carey Via InstagramMariah Carey has already stated that her twins Monroe and Moroccan will appear on her upcoming album, due out in May.  Now, she's giving a bit more detail about what, exactly, their contribution will consist of.

Speaking to People magazine, Mariah says the song on which the kids appear is one she wrote with producers Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri. "There’s a part that Jermaine says on the song that [the kids] loved, and Monroe started to say it,” Mariah explained. "I kept having to get my iPhone and record her. So I have all these different takes of her saying things, singing things."

As for whether she thinks the kids will become singers like their mom, Mariah tells People, "Well, they started singing and talking simultaneously...they’re both so musical.”

In other Mariah news, she and hubby Nick Cannon have removed their mansion in Bel Air, California, from the market only four days after listing it for just under 13 million bucks.  The Los Angeles Times reports that it's possible the couple didn't realize the attention that the listing, which was tagged as a "celebrity estate," would attract. 

The mansion features nearly 12,000 square feet of interior space, including seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a basketball court, a gym, a home theater, six fireplaces and a music studio.  Outside, there's a pool, a putting green and parking for more than 20 cars.
