NEWPORT, UNITED STATES—In this city in Vermont, near the border with Canada, 76-year-old Ginny Peck gingerly stepped into Lake Memphremagog, the temperature just above zero. “I think I’m a cold person to begin with,” Peck told Agence France-Presse (AFP) after completing the 50-meter freestyle at the Memphremagog Winter Swim Festival—America’s ice swimming “Olympics”—which took place […]

Tinie Tempah is launching his own fried chicken delivery service.

READ MORE: Tinie Tempah: “I don’t know how many people thought I was gonna be a one-hit wonder… but I’m still here”

The service, called ‘Raps’, will begin with a four-month pop-up at Willows on the Roof, which is located at the top of John Lewis on Oxford Street, London.

The food will also be available via Deliveroo in areas including Shoreditch, Hackney, Dalston, Brixton, Queen’s Park and Camberwell from March 11.

In a statement, Tempah said: “Raps just felt right. Food is an exploration of culture through its ingredients and flavours and London, the city I’m from, is rich with diversity and culture.”

He continued: “It was really exciting to work on something where I was able to combine the food I love and grew up on (both in the home and on the high street) and the music that inspired me to be who I am today.”

Save the date @tinie will be taking over Willows on The Roof, on top of our Oxford Street store, from Friday 11th March. We can’t wait to hear what you think of ‘Raps’ fried chicken, brought to you by Tinie Tempah and @BIG_HASS Book now: https://t.co/37vKwAsJS1 https://t.co/nB5ijzAIGz pic.twitter.com/9rbgWzleJS

— John Lewis & Partners (@JohnLewisRetail) February 28, 2022

A statement on the new company website added: “Raps is an inclusive community of indulgent and healthy soul food fans, with hip hop ideologies at its core brought to you by Tinie Tempah and Kitchen Ventures.

“The brand delivers a nostalgic nod to Tinie’s early childhood spent frequenting the chicken shops of South East London after school and to family dinners, Raps is both a trip down memory lane and a celebration of Tinie’s desire to reinvent a classic wRAP.”

The menu also nods to fellow London musicians such as JME and Burna Boy. It has been developed by Tempah and YouTuber chef Hasan Semay or ‘Big Has’, who graduated from Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen training programme.

Back in December, Tempah announced a London live show to mark the 10th anniversary of his debut album ‘Disc-Overy’.

Released on October 1, 2010, the artist’s first record featured the UK Number One lead single ‘Pass Out’ as well as ‘Frisky’ and ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’, a team-up with Swedish House Mafia. Tempah will mark the decade milestone with a special performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 16, 2021.

“My album ‘Disc-Overy’ is officially 10 years old,” Tinie tweeted in October. “It was a life-changer. Just wanna say thank you to all of you guys for the support through the years. It’s been a crazy journey.”

Last year, Tinie released his first new material in three years with ‘Top Winners’.

System Of A Down’s John Dolmayan says COVID-19 “is and always has been about money”

Posted on date

System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan has said that the COVID-19 pandemic “has always been about money”.

READ MORE: System Of A Down’s new anthems of rebellion are arena-ready calls for justice

Dolmayan has previously been vocal about vaccine mandates and has received criticism for his views on the Black Lives Matter movement, his support for Donald Trump and has stated that people won’t work with him now because of his views.

In February last year, he called Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “a moron” in an interview, where he also explained that he’s not a fan of “the agenda of a lot of the Democratic platforms”.

Yesterday (February 27), Dolmayan took to his Instagram to share a Pokémon-related COVID-19 meme, writing: “And just like that covid will slowly go away. This is and has always been about money , covid was about money , Ukraine is about money. Resources equal wealth , stability , and power.”

He added: “Theres a game of chess being played by those in the real positions of power and we’d like to think we’re the pawns but the truth is we’re not even on the board.”

In an interview with NME last yearSerj Tankian discussed working alongside Dolmayan, stating that “a good band always has a lot of dynamics”. Tankian previously said that he had “never seen a president suck so much” as Donald Trump, and continually criticised the former US president during his term in office.

“The political differences became pronounced between John [Dolmayan] and I in the last year through Trump’s re-election campaign, but it’s a new phenomenon,” Tankian said in the interview. “John’s my brother-in-law, as well as my band mate. Find someone who doesn’t have a brother-in-law with a differing political view, and I’ll find you an interesting family.”

He continued: “Some of the bands that create the most elastic, interesting music are ones that have very interesting dynamics between band members. I wouldn’t change that.

“It’s better than four people making what I call ‘corporate music’ where they agree on everything and want to maximise their returns. That’s Pepsi. System Of A Down has never been that. We’re fucking punk rock.”

Last year, Tankian tested positive for COVID-19, which forced the band to postpone a pair of shows in Los Angeles, both of which were alongside Korn, Helmet and Russian Circles. The gigs were rescheduled to February 2022, with a pair of new US headline shows added with Korn.

In other news, last November, Tankian unveiled a new virtual exhibition titled ‘Not For Touching – The Intangible Composition’. Presented by CurioNFT, the collection comprises 21 pieces of work spanning “mergers of art, music, digital paintings and animation”, according to a tweet from Tankian. More information can be found here.

Haim to release new track inspired by Paul Thomas Anderson collaboration

Posted on date

Haim have revealed that they are releasing a new track tomorrow (February 28).

READ MORE: Alana Haim on ‘Licorice Pizza’: “Working with Tom Waits was like being in the presence of a god”

On Instagram today (February 28), the trio revealed that they had a line written for a song for the last year – “I’ll never get back what I lost track of” – but that they “could never figure out what to do with it.” They added: “We kept writing it down, not knowing where it should live.”

The trio then went on to say that when filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson did a “director’s cut” issue for W Magazine, with youngest sister Alana on the cover, “an opportunity arose to do a quick music component while shooting the story.”

Anderson’s new film, Licorice Pizza, stars Alana in her acting debut and is a coming-of-age drama set in the 1970s in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, focusing on Haim’s character, Alana Kane, and Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman).

The post goes onto explain that the trio recorded a new song for the cover shoot, using the line they had written over a year ago.

They explained: “Paul mentioned having the book Appointment in Samarra as a possible direction [for the cover]. So we did some digging around the book and were inspired by the scene where the main character throws a drink in someone’s face at a country club.

“We were inspired by the idea of someone doing something so drastic to get out of a situation they felt uncomfortable in – just to feel something.

“We finally remembered that lyric and wrote and recorded the song and shot the whole thing in a few days! Anyway, felt fun to do something very collaborative/off the cuff.”

The new song will arrive tomorrow (March 1), according to the post, which you can see above.

Haim have worked with Paul Thomas Anderson extensively in the past few years, with the Phantom Thread director helming the videos for their tracks ‘Night So Long’, ‘Right Now’ and ‘Little of Your Love’.

Anderson was also behind their ‘Valentine’ short film, which came out in 2018, and created the artwork and videos for the band’s 2020 album ‘Women In Music Pt. III’.

He recently directed a video for the band called ‘Lost Track’, which appeared before screenings of Licorice Pizza in cinemas.

Reviewing Licorice Pizza, NME wrote: “Casting two people who’ve never been in a movie before – let alone ever acted professionally – as your leads is a pretty spicy move, but Paul Thomas Anderson has been making spicy moves for decades now.

“Even younger than Licorice Pizza’s downright radiant Alana Haim (yes, that Alana Haim), when he broke through with his 1997 rollicking porno-comedy Boogie Nights, the somewhat more wholesome Licorice Pizza sees PTA and his reels of vintage 35mm film freewheeling through the very same glowing San Fernando Valley streets as stalked by Dirk Diggler and making fully-fledged stars out of both Haim and her dazzling co-star, Cooper Hoffman.”

Måneskin say they are unable to share tour dates while war in Ukraine continues

Posted on date

Måneskin have said that they are unable to share any updates on their postponed EU tour dates with fans while the ongoing conflict in Ukraine continues.

READ MORE: Måneskin live in London – embrace the Eurovision winners’ rock’n’roll circus

Ukraine officially severed diplomatic ties with Russia and declared martial law after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an attack on the neighbouring nation last week (February 24).

Måneskin have said that they are unable to offer fans any updates on their upcoming tour dates during this “moment of tension.” Back in January, the band were forced to postpone their upcoming European tour dates due to venue capacity issues amid the ongoing COVID pandemic.

On social media, the 2021 Italian Eurovision winners wrote: “Despite our desire to give you updates regarding the European and Italian tour by March the 1st, we are not able to define and share the new dates in this moment of tension for Europe and for the whole world. We are closer that ever to all the people plagued by war right now.”

We are closer than ever to all the people plagued by war right now. pic.twitter.com/chfec541AB

— MåneskinOfficial (@thisismaneskin) February 28, 2022

They continued: “Our solidarity goes to all those who are suffering from the conflict in Ukraine and we hope that the ongoing violence will see an end.

“Together with this hope we also have that of being able to update you as soon as possible, in times of peace. We thank you for your great patience and understanding, as always.”

They concluded: “We are closer than ever and have great hope for the future.”

Late on Sunday (February 27), an update from Ukraine’s interior ministry said 352 Ukrainian civilians had been killed in the conflict so far, including 14 children. They said a further 1684 people, including 116 children, had been wounded (via The Guardian).

Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks spoke out to say that her “heart was broken” over the situation and compared Putin to Hitler, Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos paid tribute to the “open and welcoming” people of Kyiv, and Foals honoured the Ukrainian crew of their recent ‘2am’ video. Miley Cyrus, Yungblud and Elton John were among many other artists to issue statements of solidarity with Ukraine.

It was also announced last week (February 25), that Russia would not be allowed to participate this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Ukraine, which has a population of 44million people, borders both Russia and the European Union. As the BBC reports, Russia has long resisted Ukraine’s move towards embracing European institutions like NATO and the EU.

Putin is now demanding guarantees from the West and Ukraine that it will not join NATO, a defensive alliance of 30 countries, and that Ukraine demilitarise and become a neutral state.

Posting on Twitter, Yungblud reiterated his support for the people of Ukraine after he shared a video last week saying he was “absolutely devastated” for the “beautiful people of Ukraine”.

In a statement Yungblud wrote: “I’m heartbroken to announce I will be cancelling my Russian shows scheduled for this summer.

“Heartbroken because I know the vicious and brutal acts of the Russian regime in Ukraine over the past week do not reflect the attitudes and ideals of the beautiful people who I have met in Russia in the past.”

He continued to address the people of Ukraine directly, writing: “A country I’ve spent time in and have dear friends in. My heart is with you – you’ve already shown such strength and determination, resisting this needless invasion.

“Everyone deserves to be the creator of their own destiny, rather than having it forced upon them by acts of war and aggression. Ukraine, I promise I’ll come back as soon as I can. My heart is with you, always.”

The actions of Putin, who has claimed that Russia does not intend to occupy Ukraine and that his country’s actions amount to a “special military operation”, have drawn widespread condemnation from across the globe.

Late on Sunday (February 27), an update from Ukraine’s interior ministry said 352 Ukrainian civilians had been killed in the conflict so far, including 14 children. They said a further 1684 people, including 116 children, had been wounded (via The Guardian).

What’s Your Favorite Singing Competition Show? Vote!

Posted on date

American Idol returned for its landmark 20th season on Sunday night (Feb. 27), with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan joined by mainstay Ryan Seacrest.

As the most recent iteration of the judging panel scours the country for the next democratically voted superstar to join the ranks of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, Scotty McCreery and Maddie Poppe as America’s next idol, Billboard got to thinking about all the shows that have proliferated across television since the original smash singing competition’s debut way back in 2002.

So Billboard wants to know: Which current reality TV singing competition series is your favorite? Are you still loyal to Idol after all these years, or did you follow Simon Cowell to the panel of America’s Got Talent? Do you prefer the spinning chairs and celebrity coaches of NBC’s The Voice, which just concluded its 21st season with OG Idol winner Clarkson taking home her fourth trophy as the winning coach?

Perhaps you’d rather have celebrities themselves doing the singing — in costume, of course! — over on Fox’s The Masked Singer, which has effectively become the network’s de facto replacement for Idol since the original franchise was revived by ABC in 2018.

Maybe you prefer a more offbeat or meta take on the format with the likes of Fox’s I Can See Your Voice or the recently wrapped Alter Ego with its digital avatars and all-star judging panel of Alanis Morissette, Nick Lachey, will.i.am and Grimes.

Vote in Billboard‘s official poll below and sound off on the battle of the singing competitions!

Unreleased ‘Jeen-Yuhs’ Clip Shows Kanye West Struggling for Creative Control Over ‘Slow Jamz’ Video

Posted on date

Kanye West‘s Jeen-Yuhs documentary has given fans the ultimate look at his creative and musical process spanning the entirety of his career, starting with his earliest days as an underdog rapper to becoming one of rap’s most polarizing figures.

It wasn’t always smooth sailing for West, who, in a previously unreleased clip from the Netflix documentary, struggled heavily with his creative team on bringing the concept for his “Slow Jamz” video to life.

“The whole point is Jamie Foxx comes up and puts this record on the record player I begged for yesterday,” Ye said in the clip, obtained by Time. “I’m gonna keep repeating myself over and over and over again. Y’all are forcing me to be the asshole…I’m spazzing.” The scene that West was describing to the creative team never made it into the final cut of the video, though Foxx picked out multiple albums from a record store in several scenes from the visual, which also featured rapper Twista.

The difficulty in achieving the final product of “Slow Jamz” had no effect on its chart success: The track became West’s first song to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Eighteen years after the song and video’s release, Foxx reconnected with West and teased that something might be in the works between the two of them.

“I told you, back at that time, man, that [Kanye] was young and hungry,” Foxx said in an Instagram Live clip, reflecting on the rapper’s success. “Now look at us. There’s a reason we ran into each other. Can’t wait for y’all to see the next step.”

Kader Sylla Teams Up With adidas Skateboarding For His Very Own Superstar ADV

Posted on date

With pro skateboarder Kader Sylla now repping adidas, it’s only fitting he get his very own collaboration. And the Three Stripes obviously agree, as they’ve provided the talented 19-year-old his very own Superstar ADV.

“I’m so excited and thankful to join the adidas Skateboarding team,” Sylla stated. “It’s surreal to have the opportunity to travel the world with all of my friends and skate alongside people I look up to. It inspires me to be the best skateboarder I can be.”

“Having my name on an adidas shoe is crazy and something I’ll still be proud of 50 years from now,” he continues. “I hope people are happy wearing my shoes and I hope kids are inspired to know what is possible through skateboarding.”

No better a start than with Sylla’s favorite silhouette, the collaboration applies a simple monochromatic palette to the Superstar’s upper. The fat laces, tumbled leathers, and shell toe are all clad in black, matching the finish but not the texture of the faux fur along the Stripes and heel tab. Elsewhere, “KADER” is written on the side in gilded text much like the adidas branding printed onto the tongue and insole.

For a closer look at the skater’s upcoming collab, check out the imagery below. These are currently slated to hit adidas.com/skateboarding on March 5th at a retail of $100 USD.

In other news, images of the Gucci adidas Gazelle were recently unveiled.

“Coconut Milk”-Colored Canvas Comes Together With Indigo Accents On This Air Jordan 1 Mid

Posted on date

While much attention has already been paid to handfuls of Fall 2022 Air Jordan releases, NIKE, Inc. is on a mission to conjure up excitement for its summer collection. A newly-surfaced Air Jordan 1 Mid clad in an off-white and indigo colorway is arguably the company’s latest attempt of doing just that.

Reminiscent of some options under the Nike Sportswear banner, the upcoming sneakers indulge in a “Coconut Milk”-like tone across most of its upper, which features a mix of suede, tumbled leather and canvas materials. No party involved has disclosed whether or not the refreshing arrangement is part of an expansive spring or summer-ready collection, but the mid-top Jordan 1‘s use of non-standard fabrics, experimental dyeing at the laces and collar, and semi-recycled rubber outsoles could lend itself to a number of other products from the North American institution. “Wings” emblems on the lateral ankle flap also partake in the shoes’ indigo flair, helping inject more fashionable design cues to the 1985-silhouette.

Enjoy official images of the pair here below (courtesy of Instagram, user @knowing_kicks), and expect a Nike.com launch as summer inches closer.

For concrete release dates from the Jumpman empire, check out the Air Jordan 4 “Infrared” scheduled to launch on May 12th.
