Extremely popular around the world and even received by Joe Biden at the White House, the members of the BTS group have announced that they are taking a break in order to focus on their respective careers. BTS, which released an anthology album (“Proof”) on Monday, had already announced “breaks” in 2019 and 2021. But this time, the group “needs a change” and wants to “start a new chapter”, insists J -Hope, a member of the septet. This announcement, launched during a dinner broadcast on the internet to mark the ninth anniversary of the group, nevertheless had the effect of a bomb on social networks.

Creative burnout.

For BTS, who have been churning out music nonstop for nine years, creative burnout must have weighed in on their decision to take a break, says Billboard K-pop columnist Jeff Benjamin. in the past, it seems more “meaningful”. The seven boys remain under contract with their label until 2026, which is “essential to keep them together”, continued Jeff Benjamin.

Asked during a dinner, organized to celebrate their ninth anniversary, the seven artists notably pointed out their busy and non-stop work rhythm which does not allow them to take the time to think about their future development, solo but also as a group.

“I've always thought BTS was different from other groups, but the problem with K-pop and the whole star system is that they don't give you time to mature. You have to keep churning out music non-stop,” RM said at that dinner.

Since their debut in 2013, the seven members of BTS have, in parallel with their common career, developed individual projects. If J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Suga and V confide that this decision to take a break was difficult to make, they nevertheless reveal that their albums and solo singles will quickly see the light of day.

“We can't stop thinking about our audience. No matter what, we want to be the kind of artists that fans remember. We are going through a tough time right now as we are trying to find our identity and it is an exhausting and long process,” Jimin said.

J-Hope will be the first of the group to formalize this new individual start. The artist will headline the American Lollapalooza festival on July 31.

An unspoken reason?

Behind the decision of the South Koreans of BTS to take a break would also hide an unspoken reason, namely the compulsory military service according to some specialists. Any South Korean man under the age of 30 must indeed perform two years of military service, in particular because of the threat posed by North Korea. The prospect of conscription is getting closer for the members of BTS, especially for Jin, 29 years old, who must enlist by next year or risk being put in prison.

Seoul grants exemptions from military service to some top athletes, such as Olympic medalists, and classical music artists, but not to K-pop stars. “As a young South Korean, I believe that service military is a natural course. And as I have always said, I will answer my country's call when it arrives," Jin said in 2020. "The issue of military service was clearly present in the announcement," said Lee Moon-won, a K-pop culture commentator.

Allowing the band members to focus on their own solo careers was "a logical decision," he adds, since the call-up of the seven boys will disrupt the band's lineup for years to come.

Céline Dion announced this Tuesday, May 10, new dates in Paris as part of her European tour, which has already been postponed due to Covid-19 in 2020 and 2021, then a third time due to the health of the singer a few weeks ago.

On Friday April 29, the singer posted a message to her fans on her social networks.

Celine Dion confided then to suffer from persistent muscle spasms. Recovery was taking "much longer" than she thought.

“I am so sorry, saddened to be forced to postpone the shows”, she lamented on the eve of a tour which was to start on May 25 in Birmingham (United Kingdom). "I have to be in good shape, in good health so that I can give 100% of myself on stage, because that's what you deserve," she added.

Le jazzman Jon Batiste et la jeune sensation pop Olivia Rodrigo ont confirmé, dimanche 3 avril, leur statut de favoris lors de la 64e édition des Grammy Awards, équivalent des Oscars pour la musique américaine.

Cinq prix pour le jazzman Jon Batiste

Jon Batiste, pianiste afro-américain de 35 ans, nommé dans onze catégories, a remporté celle considérée comme la récompense suprême de l’industrie musicale américaine, « l’album de l’année pour We Are.« J’en suis profondément convaincu, il n’y a pas de meilleur artiste, de meilleur musicien, de meilleur danseur, de meilleur acteur. Les arts créatifs sont subjectifs et ils touchent les gens à un moment de leur vie où ils en ont le plus besoin », a lancé le musicien virtuose et touche à tout en recevant son prix sur scène, le cinquième de la journée.

Il avait déjà créé la surprise en novembre 2021 en se classant en tête du nombre de nominations aux Grammys (onze au total), devançant largement des stars mondiales comme Justin Bieber (huit nominations), Lady Gaga ou Taylor Swift.

A seulement 35 ans, le jazzman a enregistré avec les plus grandes stars de la chanson américaine, de Stevie Wonder à Prince en passant par la légende country Willie Nelson. Pour de nombreux Américains, il est peut-être encore plus connu en tant que chef d'orchestre et directeur musical de la très populaire émission de télévision "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert". Il est aussi le directeur de la création du musée national du jazz de Harlem et a reçu en 2021 un Oscar, un Golden Globe et un Bafta pour la bande originale du film d'animation Soul (Pixar), coécrite avec Trent Reznor et Atticus Ross.

Olivia Rodrigo sacrée « révélation de l'année »

.La nouvelle sensation pop Olivia Rodrigo, 19 ans, a, elle, remporté le Grammy Award de la « révélation de l’année », catégorie très en vue dans laquelle la jeune femme s’est imposée face aux rappeurs Saweetie and The Kid Laroi. Et elle a été sacrée lors d’une cérémonie précédant la soirée de gala « meilleure performance pop solo » pour son titre Drivers Licence.

D'abord connue pour ses performances d'actrice sur Disney Channel, la chanteuse de 19 ans a sorti son premier titre Drivers Licence en 2021. Le titre, salué par la critique, a fait d'elle la plus jeune artiste classée en tête des charts aux Etats-Unis. Elle était restée au sommet du classement durant huit semaines d'affilée

Chanson de l’année et look rétro pour le duo Silk Sonic

L'autre grand vainqueur de la soirée est Silk Sonic, le projet de R&B rétro porté par Bruno Mars et Anderson .Paak. Ils sont repartis avec quatre statuettes, dont les prestigieux prix de l'enregistrement de l'année et de la chanson de l'année pour Leave The Door Open.. Le Grammy décerné au titre Leave the Door Open était leur troisième de la journée après deux victoires dans la catégorie R’n’B. Ils ont coiffé sur le poteau Olivia Rodrigo, privée ainsi de sa chance de rééditer l’exploit de Billie Eilish, enfant chérie des Grammy Awards, qui avait raflé en 2020 les prix dans les quatre catégories majeures. Le groupe a également obtenu deux récompenses dans les catégories R&B.

Les cousins Baby Keem et Kendrick Lamar ont, eux, remporté le prix de la meilleure performance de rap pour leur chanson Family Ties.

Le fantasque Kanye West, absent, était aussi en lice avec son album Donda, dont deux titres ont été primés dimanche après-midi dans la catégorie rap, « Hurricane » et « Jail ».

Côté rockeurs, les Foo Fighters ont remporté les trois prix pour lesquels ils étaient en lice, une semaine après la mort soudaine de leur batteur, Taylor Hawkins, en Colombie, peu avant un concert. Le groupe de Dave Grohl, l’ex-batteur de Nirvana, a reçu les Grammy Awards du meilleur album de rock, de la meilleure chanson rock et de la meilleure performance rock.

« Remplissez ce silence avec votre musique », déclare Zelensky

Le président ukrainien Volodymyr Zelensky a marqué les esprits en intervenant aux Grammy Awards, via une allocution vidéo enregistrée. « La guerre. Qu’est-ce qui est l’exact opposé de la musique ? Le silence des villes en ruines et des gens tués », a-t-il lancé, vêtu de son habituel tee-shirt kaki. « Remplissez ce silence avec votre musique », a-t-il ajouté, avant une performance de John Legend, rejoint sur scène par des artistes ukrainiens, Mika Newton et Lyuba Yakimchuk.

« Dites la vérité sur la guerre, sur vos réseaux sociaux, à la télé. Soutenez-nous de toutes les manières possibles, toutes sauf le silence, a-t-il lancé. Et après viendra la paix. »

Elle a remporté trois trophées et avait choisi trois tenues pour briller : Adele est l'heureuse gagnante des Brit Awards 2022 en remportant trois titres: celui de l'album de l'année pour «30», celui de la meilleure chanson pour «Easy On Me» et enfin celui d'artiste de l'année. «Evidemment j'aimerais remercier toutes les personnes avec lesquelles j'ai travaillé.

Mais j'aimerais aussi dédier (sa victoire) à mon fils et à Simon, son père. («30») n'évoquait pas simplement mon histoire mais la notre et je suis très fière (...) d'avoir sorti un album qui était si personnel. Il n'y a plus beaucoup de personnes qui le font aujourd'hui», a-t-elle dit lors de son discours de remerciement.

Pour l'occasion, la diva britannique avait opté pour une petite robe noire courte pour chanter sur scène, puis une sublime robe longue dorée signée Valentino. Elle était aussi époustouflante dans un style qu'elle adore : une robe longue noire fourreau doublée de tulle, signée Armani Privé sur le tapis rouge du photocall.

Les Brit Awards, trophées britanniques de la musique pop, ont supprimé les catégories genrées afin de distinguer les artistes « uniquement pour leur travail et leur musique plutôt que pour la façon dont ils choisissent de s'identifier ou la façon dont les autres peuvent les percevoir », selon les organisateurs. Le britannique Sam Smith, qui se considère comme non-binaire, n'avait pas concouru en 2021 aux Brit Awards car aucune catégorie ne lui correspondait.

« Je comprends pourquoi ils ont changé le nom de ce prix mais j'aime vraiment être une femme, une artiste féminine, réellement », a confié Adele sous les applaudissements.

Et un détail qui a attiré l’œil des fans et sans conteste l'impressionnant diamant qu'elle portait à l'annulaire gauche, bague de fianciailles.

Le réalisateur finlandais Aki Kaurismäki pleure son comédien fétiche, André Wilms, décédé ce jeudi 10 février 2022 a annoncé son agent. L’acteur français s’était fait connaître du grand public en jouant M. Le Quesnoy dans La Vie est un long fleuve tranquille, sorti en 1988, un succès en salles réalisé par Étienne Chatiliez. André Wilms s’est éteint à l’âge de 74 ans.

La raison de son décès, survenu dans un hôpital parisien, n’a pas été communiquée par sa famille, a indiqué son agent Sébastien Perrolat.

Des débuts comme cintrier

Né en 1947, il quitte son Alsace natale aux alentours de 20 ans après un CAP de plâtrier. Direction Toulouse où il est engagé comme cintrier au Théâtre Sorano, fondé par Maurice Sarrazin. Il se fait rapidement repérer, et devient figurant. Attiré par les planches, il monte alors vers la capitale, où il va travailler avec des metteurs en scène allemands comme Klaus Micheal Grüber et Heiner Goebbels.

Il rencontre également André Engel, qui l’invite sur plusieurs de ses mises en scène, comme En attendant Godot de Samuel Beckett, ou Hôtel moderne d’après Franz Kafka. Là, il apprend l'exigence du métier avant de se tourner par la suite vers le 7e Art.

Comédien fétiche d'Aki Kaurismäki

Acteur de théâtre et de cinéma, metteur en scène sur les planches, André Wilms s'est surtout fait connaître du grand public en jouant le père de famille Le Quesnoy, catholique et austère, dans La Vie est un long fleuve tranquille (1988), premier film et succès en salles d'Étienne Chatiliez, puis des cinéphiles grâce aux films tragicomiques d'Aki Kaurismäki.

Ensemble ils ont tourné La Vie de bohème (1992), Les Leningrad Cowboys rencontrent Moïse (1994), Juha (1999), Le Havre (2011), L'Autre Côté de l'espoir (2017). Des films marqués par des personnages lunaires et des dialogues poétiques, avec une tendresse certaine pour les personnages.

Dans Le Havre, André Wilms était un cireur de chaussures, qui tendait la main à un jeune Africain sans-papiers. Le film avait été récompensé par le prix Louis-Delluc 2011, considéré comme le Goncourt du cinéma. L'Autre Côté de l'espoir orchestrait la rencontre entre un migrant syrien échoué contre son gré dans la grisaille finlandaise et un restaurateur séparé de sa femme alcoolique.

« Les grand metteurs en scène n'ont pas besoin de parler ! »

André Wilms s'esclaffait quand on l'interrogeait sur le fonctionnement d'un plateau dont le patron ne parle pas la langue : « Les grands metteurs en scène n'ont pas besoin de parler ! il me disait : "Play like an old gentleman. Ne cours pas. Ne renverse rien ... Tout le monde court dans les films aujourd'hui".

Aki est l'un des rares metteurs en scène qui ne prend pas les acteurs pour des analphabètes, quoiqu'il y en ait beaucoup »

At nearly 19, 21 and 25, up to 30. Each of the Adele album is inspired by an age and a phase of life of the artist.

“30” is no exception. Six years have passed since Adele's last album, and there is no doubt that the return of the British singer was eagerly awaited.

And Adele has made a comeback.

She made two Unes of the magazine "Vogue" and released in mid-October a first track ("Easy On Me") taken from the album. Last Sunday, the musician was also delivered in prime time on CBS to a river interview with Oprah Winfrey accompanied by a mini-concert, followed by 10 million Americans.

Finally, on November 19, she offers her last opus of twelve intimate titles, confiding on her torments in her thirties, including the birth of her son or the pain caused by her recent divorce from Simon Konecki.

With a hoarse and powerful contralto voice, recognizable from the first note, the interpreter of Hello sings in the first track "Easy on Me", a song which resembles what we know about her. But throughout the album, Adele mostly plays with genres:

the radiant opening track, Strangers By Natur, evokes a Somewhere Over the Rainbow from a remake of The Wizard of Oz directed by David Lynch. Cry Your Heart Out is a reggae-tinged hit that Amy Winehouse would not have denied.

With My Little Love we let ourselves be taken by these vocal notes, very inspired by the world of rap today. Moreover, Adele recently confided in an interview that these vocal notes had been inspired by Tyler, the Creator and Skepta, figure of British rap.

Oh My God just like Love Is a Game also differs from what the British artist used to offer in a more optimistic atmosphere for the rest of the singer's life. And from this fourth studio album emanates "an undeniable romantic optimism".

"I'm trying to party but all I can think about is coming home and dreaming about you." », Sings Adele in Interlude All Night Parking

Concert in London, broadcast on ITV, and a recording broadcast at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes (broadcast on TF1) this weekend.

Soixante ans après le premier homme dans l’espace, les russes ont envoyé une équipe de tournage pour réaliser un film grâce à l'agence spatiale Roscosmos. Jamais un long-métrage de fiction n’avait été réalisé de l’autre côté de la ligne de Karman.

Une actrice et un réalisateur russes ont décollé, mardi 5 octobre au matin, pour tourner le premier long-métrage en orbite de l’histoire :l’actrice Ioulia Peressild et le réalisateur Klim Shipenko,38 ans.Ioulia Peressild, 37 ans, deviendra la première actrice à tourner dans l’ISS.C’est elle qui a été choisie parmi 3000 candidates.

Les deux primo-voyageurs de l’espace ont suivi un entraînement accéléré pour apprendre à supporter la violente accélération du décollage ou à se mouvoir en apesanteur. Ils ont même passé le test de la centrifugeuse, avec succès. Le futur équipage, en compagnie du cosmonaute Anton Shkaplerov qui restera lui plusieurs mois dans l'ISS, apparaissent sur une photo diffusée par l'agence spatiale Roscosmos.

Un film dramatique

L’équipe a douze jours pour tourner les séquences spatiales d’un film provisoirement intitulé Le Défi, une œuvre, dont le budget est gardé secret, qui mettra en scène une médecin ayant pour mission de sauver un cosmonaute dans le premier long-métrage spatial intitulé Le Défi

Klim Shipenko, 38 ans, sera le couteau-suisse de cette mission. Il réalisera et cadrera les scènes sur l’ISS, mais sera aussi chargé du maquillage et de l’éclairage. En tout, une quarantaine de minutes de temps d’écran seront filmées à bord de la station.

Ioulia Peressild incarne une médecin, chirurgienne. Elle est chargée de se rendre dans l’ISS pour sauver la vie d’un astronaute mal en point, victime d’un arrêt cardiaque lors d’une sortie extravéhiculaire. Les actuels membres de la Station spatiale internationale joueront les seconds rôles. « Le scénario change tout le temps et je réapprends mes répliques, c'est vraiment dur », assure le commandant de la mission, Anton Shkaplerov.

Marquer un point face au rival américain

Ce premier tournage devance un projet de tournage à bord de l’ISS avec la star d’Hollywood de 58 ans Tom Cruise, acteur de saga « Mission impossible », en compagnie du réalisateur Doug Liman (« La Mémoire dans la peau », « Edge of Tomorrow »). Ils s’envoleront dans quelques semaines à bord d’une capsule Crew Dragon de SpaceX.

Au-delà de cette première artistique, ce film spatial doit redorer un blason terni par les pannes en série et la perte du lucratif monopole des vols habités vers l’ISS, depuis l’entrée en lice de la société Space X, d’Elon Musk.

La Russie entend se mêler à la course au tourisme spatial, qui a connu une accélération au cours des derniers mois avec les vols des milliardaires américain et britannique Jeff Bezos et Richard Branson. Elle doit ainsi propulser en décembre un milliardaire japonais dans l’espace.

Cette fois c’est officiel.

Ce jeudi 2 septembre 2021, le légendaire groupe de pop suédois ABBA proposent « Voyage », leur nouveau single, premier titre original depuis trente-huit ans !

40 ans après sa séparation, Björn, Benny, Agnetha et Frida devraient annoncer dans la foulée un album, prévu pour novembre.

Le groupe culte ABBA pourrait se reformer avec de nouvelles chansons et une tournée de leurs hologrammes en prévision , des « ABBA-tars ».

En avril 2018, l’ex-groupe avait annoncé être retourné en studio pour la première fois depuis près de quatre décennies.

Deux chansons avaient été enregistrées :

l’une baptisée « I Still Have Faith in You » («Je crois toujours en toi ») et l’autre « Don’t Shut Me Down » («Ne m’arrête pas »).

Mais la promesse de sortir ces nouveaux titres - les membres d’ABBA ont depuis évoqué cinq chansons dans des interviews - n’a cessé d’être repoussée, puis le Covid est venu jouer les trouble-fêtes.

Sur Twitter, les quatre membres d’ABBA - anagramme de leurs prénoms - Anni-Frid Lyngstad 75 ans, Agnetha Fältskog 71 ans, Björn Ulvaeus 76 ans, et Benny Andersson 74 ans ont remercié leur public d’avoir « patienté » si longtemps.

Rendez-vous est donné à leurs fans pour une annonce « spéciale » sur YouTube à 16 h 45 GMT !

Avec plus d’un mois de retard sur la date annoncée et un concert de présentation finalement sans présentation, le rappeur américain Kanye West a dévoilé ce dimanche 29 août 2021 « Donda », son 10e album et ses 26 morceaux ont été diffusés sur toutes les plateformes de streaming tôt dans la matinée aux États-Unis.

Un album en perpétuelle expérimentation

Son album a profondément évolué ces dernières semaines au cours des grandes séances d'écoute publiques organisées à Atlanta, Las Vegas et Chicago. Et Kanye West pourrait bien continuer à le modifier après sa sortie en streaming, comme il l'avait fait pour son album The Life of Pablo paru en 2016.

Dans cet album, qui porte le nom de sa mère décédée en 2007, Kanye West aborde à nouveau des thèmes religieux :

«Je ne vous ai jamais appelé, je n'ai jamais compté sur vous. Je m'en suis toujours remis à Dieu», martèle le chanteur sur No Child Left Behind, semblant reprendre la formule de son précédent album Jesus Is King , qui mêle habilement gospel et influences urbaines.

Les textes alliant prêche et folie douce ne manquent pas (« Je parle à Dieu quotidiennement, c’est mon grand pote » ou « J’étais à vendre mais je ne pouvais pas le dire/Dieu a fait pleuvoir, le diable a fait l’enfer ».)

Il fait aussi plusieurs fois référence à sa séparation ultra médiatisée avec la vedette de téléréalité Kim Kardashian.

Des invités controversés

Comme annoncé, le rappeur Jay-Z fait une apparition dans un couplet où il semble faire référence au soutien apporté par Kanye West à Donald Trump. « Je lui ai dit d’arrêter avec cette casquette rouge », lance-t-il notamment. The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Pusha T ou encore Pop Smoke, décédé en 2020, figurent également en invités sur cet opus de deux heures. D'autres participants cependant font particulièrement polémique :

le chanteur américain Marilyn Manson, accusé de viol, ou le rappeur DaBaby, qui avait provoqué cet été une controverse avec des propos homophobes et sexistes ou encore Chris Brown condamné en 2009 pour violences envers son ex-compagne Rihanna.

Ainsi l'affaire Marilyn Manson a défrayé la chronique au début de l'année 2021 lorsque plusieurs femmes, y compris l'actrice Evan Rachel Wood, l'ont publiquement accusé de viols et de violences sexuelles.

Faut-il voir dans ce choix de collaborations une nouvelle volonté de choquer, peu surprenante de la part d'un artiste qui a souvent fait parler de lui pour ses propos controversés que ce soit sur l'esclavage, l'avortement ou encore sur la fin de sa relation avec Kim Kardashian?

Eurovision 2021: France takes second place, behind Italy

The French Barbara Pravi was beaten on Saturday evening by the Italian group Maneskin, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam (Netherlands).

Tuesday, May 24, 2021, the organizers of the competition announced that the singer who had submitted "voluntarily to a screening" had not consumed drugs.

It's very sad, said Amanda Lear, who knew him well.

We almost started together at the start of the disco era.

Christophe Dechavanne, producer of the tour, remembers:

“When I found him for this tour, he was coming out of a difficult patch.

This job is difficult when you are not constantly on top.

I had the pleasure of seeing him regain an immense taste for life and the stage. He took care of himself on a diet.

I was happy to witness all of this. "

Le Monde said of him in a review of one of his shows in 1979 that he was a “character himself carefree and a little sad”.

"Patrick still had plenty of projects, including a new album as a composer," regretted his agent.

Billie Eilish, la jeune chanteuse qui avait réussi en janvier dernier le grand chelem en raflant les prix dans les quatre catégories reines, a décroché encore quatre nominations cette année, y compris pour album de l'année et

Chanson de l'année. Taylor Swift, un peu oubliée des Grammys ces derniers temps, renoue avec les nominations avec son album "Folklore" et son hit "Cardigan", nommés pour l'Album de l'année et Chanson de l'année. Brittany Howard, entre rock et blues et connue pour ses performances avec le groupe Alabama Shakes, sort aussi du lot avec cinq nominations, après avoir sorti son premier album solo "Jaime".

The Weeknd s'emporte contre les Grammy Awards

The Weeknd, par contre, n’est pas content.

Le chanteur, qui vient d’être choisi pour assurer le show à la mi-temps du Superbowl, n’a reçu aucune nomination pour les prochains Grammy Awards.

Sur Twitter, l’interprète de « In Your Eyes » a écrit :

« Les Grammys restent corrompus. Vous me devez à moi, mes fans et à l’industrie de la transparence... »

L’année 2020 a en effet été plutôt bonne pour The Weeknd.

L’artiste a sorti « After Hours », son quatrième album studio, et son tube « Blinding Lights » est arrivée en tête du classement « Billboard Hot 100 » puis est resté durant quarante semaines dans son top 10.

The Weeknd n’est pas le seul à ne pas être content des nominations annoncées.

Justin Bieber s’est lui offusqué que son album, « Changes », apparaissent dans la catégorie pop, aux côtés de Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles et Taylor Swift.

Du fait de la situation sanitaire aux Etats-Unis, on ignore encore comment sera organisée la cérémonie du 31 Janvier 2021.

Teased on October 23, 2020 on social networks, the featuring between the young Belgian Angèle and the English star Dua Lipa is now available. Entitled Fever, it perfectly merges the universe of the two artists, between pop and dance music, and navigates between English and French. In Fever, filmed by director duo We Are From LA, the two singers walk the streets of London together as they leave a nightclub.

They both dance on the sidewalks, eat fries, tell each other their love stories while waiting for a train and take part in the girls' party.

While the pandemic is raging and we find ourselves, in France as in the United Kingdom, in confinement, they have chosen, in the clip, to tell a carefree night of celebration.

"I really like this clip that we shot because we played this fantasy of going out that we knew, when we party with our best friends, that we live the moment fully, without anything going on. 'other doesn't matter,' says Dua Lipa at 20 minutes.

“This shoot was my last outing, my last 'party', I won't soon forget! », Adds Angèle in the same interview which is found alongside David Guetta, Aya Nakamura or even Christine and The Queens as acclaimed stars internationally.

An online concert

The two singers will perform it together for the first time live at Studio 2054, a videoconference show announced by Dua Lipa for November 27. "A night of unprecedented performances, where many guests, dancers, acrobats will be invited to share with her a strong and unique moment", according to a press release.

It will be broadcast on LiveNow (at 9:30 p.m. in France).

Tickets are on sale on the singer's official website.

Eddie Van Halen died Tuesday after a "long battle" against cancer at the age of 65 years, announced his son Wolf on Twitter.

He was the guitarist and founder of the legendary 1980s hard rock band Van Halen.

Hard rock figure from the 1980s.

The Van Halen group was founded in Pasadena, near Los Angeles by Eddie and his older brother Alex (drums), with singer David Lee Roth.

The group was made popular by their hit "Jump" which sold millions of copies worldwide.

The track had finally appeared on their best-selling album, "1984", and had remained at the top of the American charts for five consecutive weeks.

A mythical guitar solo on "Beat It"

Eddie Van Halen was born in the Netherlands but grew up in Pasadena.

He was considered a virtuoso guitarist and was particularly distinguished by a legendary guitar solo on Michael Jackson's "Beat It" in 1983.

“He was the best father you could dream of.

Every moment I shared with him on and off stage was a gift, ”added Wolfgang“ Wolf ”Van Halen.

The latter had replaced the original bassist of the group (Michael Anthony) in 2007, when David Lee Roth had reunited with Van Halen for a tour, after a separation of more than twenty years.

After the departure of David Lee Roth, Van Halen had continued to release albums and perform with singers Sammy Hagar and then Gary Cherone. He had never regained the popularity of the first period, however.

Long-standing addictions

In 2012, the group had to cancel concerts in Japan due to an emergency operation by Eddie Van Halen. Three years later, Van Halen's musicians were back on the road for a long tour of the United States and Canada.

Heavy smoker, drug user, Eddie Van Halen has long had to fight against cancer of the digestive tract.

In 2000, doctors had to remove part of his tongue because of a tumor.

Decades of smoking probably hadn't helped her health.

He said he had been drinking and smoking since the age of twelve, but had not spent his career partying.

“I don't drink for fun,” he said.

“Alcohol and cocaine are things I use in private, for work” and for creativity.

By dint of excess, he had become "alcoholic", which had precipitated his divorce from actress Valerie Bertinelli in 2007, after sixteen years of marriage. He said he had become sober the following year.

"Tata Yoyo ", « La bonne du curé », « Cho Ka Ka O » ces chansons joyeuses et entraînantes viennent de perdre leur interprète. Annie Cordy, est décédée ce vendredi soir, à l'âge de 92 ans.

La chanteuse est décédée à son domicile de Vallauris (Alpes-Maritimes) d'un arrêt cardiaque, selon Nice-Matin. « Elle a fait un malaise vers 18h00.

Les pompiers sont arrivés très vite, ont tout tenté pour la ranimer », a indiqué sa nièce qui vivait avec elle dans une maison sur les hauteurs de Cannes depuis des années.

Léonie Cooreman, de son vrai nom, est née le 16 juin 1928 à Laeken, commune du nord de Bruxelles (Belgique).

Elle passe une enfance heureuse auprès de parents d’origine modeste, père menuisier, mère tenant une épicerie.

Annie Cordy a 8 ans quand sa mère l’inscrit dans une école de danse réputée, celle des sœurs Ambrosini, qui lui apporte une solide formation de danseuse complétée par des cours de solfège.

Elle avait débuté dans des orchestres en chantant des standards américains, avant d'être engagée comme meneuse de revues au « Bœuf sur le Toit » à Bruxelles, puis à Paris au « Lido » en 1950.

Remarquée par Pierre-Louis Guérin, directeur artistique du Lido à Paris qui cherche une nouvelle meneuse de revue, elle débarque dans la capitale en 1950 et prend le pseudonyme d’Annie Cordy.

Elle y rencontre son futur mari, François-Henri Bruneau, dit « Bruno », de dix-sept ans son aîné, qu’elle épouse en 1958. Il sera à ses côtés pendant plus de quarante ans en tant que manageur.

Elle enregistre ses premiers 45 tours dans les années 50 et a eu le privilège de chanter pour le mariage du prince Rainier et de Grace Kelly en 1956.

Artiste à la carrière éclectique, elle a tout mené de front pendant plus de soixante-dix ans, à la fois meneuse de revue, chanteuse d’opérette et de variétés, comédienne, actrice de cinéma ou de télévision.

Elle a à son actif plus de 700 chansons dont près de 40 tubes qui ont fait les grandes heures des radios et des shows télévisés (La Bonne du curé, Ça ira mieux demain, Tata Yoyo...)

Elle était une excellente actrice. Après avoir débuté avec Sacha Guitry (« Si Versailles m'était conté », 1953), elle a élargi et ému son public par des rôles dramatiques dans « Le Passager de la pluie » de René Clément, « Le Chat » (Pierre Granier-Deferre) ou « La Rupture » (Claude Chabrol).

En 2015, elle sonne tout aussi juste dans son rôle de grand-mère fugueuse dans « Les souvenirs » de Jean-Paul Rouve.

A l'occasion de ses 90 ans en 2018, Bruxelles avait baptisé un parc à son nom.

Eternellement joyeuse, Annie Cordy était devenue baronne en 2004 sur une décision du roi des Belges Albert II.

Débuts snobés par la presse branchée, traversée du désert dans les années 1990, décès d'un membre clé: Indochine a survécu à tout, renoué avec le succès, et lance cette semaine les célébrations de ses 40 ans. Le groupe a inauguré ce vendredi sa première boutique éphémère dans le IIe arrondissement parisien. Une belle surprise pour ses fans qui peuvent y aller jusqu’à lundi.

Officiellement, l'anniversaire de la bande de Nicola Sirkis - fondateur et seul rescapé des premières heures - tombe l'an prochain. Mais la fête commence avec la sortie d'une première compilation, Singles Collection 2001-2021, ce vendredi. Le deuxième volet, 1981-2001, sera livré le 27 novembre. Le visuel de la compilation s'articule autour d'adolescents au look punk-gothique, mi-inquiets, mi-bravaches. « C'est un hommage à ce qu'on était à l'époque où on a l'inconscience de créer un groupe de rock, à 16-17 ans », confie Nicola Sirkis, sexagénaire à l'allure toujours juvénile. « Il y a la jeunesse, la fougue, et la peur de ne pas savoir où on va dans un monde d'adultes », ajoute-t-il.

Une tournée des stades est également programmée au printemps-été 2021. Avec le risque, forcément, d'être reportée en raison de la pandémie de coronavirus. Pas de quoi inquiéter, toutefois, le leader du groupe.

« Je ne suis pas inquiet de nature: un œil sur la guitare, l'autre sur la bagarre (chanson d'Higelin, NLDR). C'est dans un an. Mais on a déjà mis des options sur 2022 au cas où. Jouer pour un public masqué, qui n'a pas le droit se lever, ce n'est pas le but. Ce serait trop ridicule, on veut célébrer 40 ans d'activité, dans la communion. Pour l'instant, on ose, on y croit », estime Sirkis.

Au programme de cette série de concerts, une scène au centre du public, avec un écran à 360°. « Personne ne sera lésé au niveau visibilité ou pour l'écoute. Et pas de carré or, ou VIP, ces trucs tellement abjects », selon Sirkis. Des places seront offertes pour ceux en première ligne face au Covid-19: « éboueurs, caissières, médecins, aide-soignants, femmes de ménages, etc, toutes ces professions mal vues qui ont fait marcher la société », détaille le chanteur.

Le récent single du groupe, Nos célébrations, est escorté d'un beau clip animé qui fait défiler quatre décennies.

« C'est tout ce qu'on a traversé, de l'élection de Mitterrand au Covid-19, à la fin le train s'arrête à une gare: le chemin est encore à venir, ou pas, on verra », synthétise Nicola.

Le compositeur italien Ennio Morricone, l’homme aux 500 musiques de film, est mort à l’âge de 91 ans. Il « s’est éteint à l’aube du 6 juillet avec le réconfort de la foi », a annoncé dans un communiqué l’avocat et ami de la famille Giorgio Assumma, cité par les médias italiens.

Le maestro italien est mort dans une clinique romaine des suites d’une chute. Il s’était brisé le fémur il y a quelques jours, écrit l’agence de presse ANSA.

Né à Rome en 1928, d'un père trompettiste de jazz, Ennio Morricone est initié très tôt à la musique et obtient lui-même un diplôme de trompette à l’Académie Sainte-Cécile de Rome en 1946, puis de composition en 1954.

D’abord orchestrateur et arrangeur au service de la société audiovisuelle RAI et de la maison de disque RCA, Ennio Morricone commence sa carrière de compositeur de film en 1961, en travaillant sur les musiques d'Il Federale réalisé par Luciano Salce (Mission ultra-secrète)

Duo avec son ami Sergio Leone

Le musicien Ennio Morricone se fait surtout connaître au début des années 1960 en composant notamment les partitions épiques des westerns de Sergio Leone qu'il connaissait depuis l'enfance. Ennio Morricone veut renouveler le genre, imposer un style plus « américain » aux bandes-sons.

Le compositeur écrit la musique du western hollywoodien à la sauce italienne Pour une poignée de dollars (1964), Le Bon, la Brute et le Truand (1966), Il était une fois dans l’Ouest (1968) et Une Poignée de Dynamite (1971). Pour sublimer les œuvres de Leone, le maestro mêle trompettes, guitares électriques, sifflement, guimbardes et flûte à bec dans des mélodies reconnaissables entre mille. Des morceaux comme Il triello et L'Estasi dell'oro ont eu des retentissements mondiaux, inspirant même les rappeurs ou encore le groupe Metallica, qui démarre chacun de ses concerts en diffusant ce dernier.

« C’est plus qu’un couple, c’est comme une sorte de mariage involontaire », confiait Sergio Leone à propos de son binôme avec Ennio Morricone, le 24 février 1989, sur France Culture.
« C’est plus qu’un compositeur pour moi. Je n’aime pas du tout les mots dans les films, j’espère toujours faire un film muet, et la musique se substitue aux mots, alors on peut dire que Morricone est l’un de mes meilleurs scénaristes. », dit encore Sergio Leone. Mais Morricone refusait d'être cantonné à sa collaboration avec l'inventeur du western spaghetti.

Bandes-originales pour d'autres films

 Le Romain compose des bandes originales pour des films d'époque comme 1900 ou Vatel, des comédies telles que La Cage aux folles et met en musique des films engagés: La Classe ouvrière va au paradis, La Bataille d'Alger ou encore Sacco et Vanzetti. Morricone compose pour ce film retraçant l'histoire vraie de deux anarchistes italiens condamnés à mort sans preuve aux Etats-Unis le sublime Here's to You, chanté par Joan Baez. La musique de Morricone pour Mission (Palme d'or à Cannes 1986) figure parmi ses morceaux les plus célébrés.

Collaboration avec Brian de Palma

En 1987, sort sur les écrans Les Incorruptibles de Brian de Palma, film à suspense retraçant la rivalité entre Al Capone et Eliot Ness. Une bande originale riche en ambiances musicales, où la mort rôde sur chaque morceau. Le début d'une collaboration d'une quinzaine d'années entre Brian de Palma et Ennio Morriconne, qui signera aussi la musique d'Outrages (1989) et de Mission to Mars (2000).

Le compositeur écrivait aussi des pièces de musique de chambre de grands orchestres et de la musique contemporaine. Parmi ses modèles figuraient Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez, Luigi Nonno, Aldo Clementi et son maître , Goffredo Petrassi.

Tout au long de sa toute sa carrière, Ennio Morricone a joué l'équilibriste entre musique populaire et musique classique, cinéma et télévision.

Il avait été récompensé en 2007 d'un Oscar d'honneur pour l'ensemble de sa carrière et en 2016 de son premier Oscar pour la musique d'un film, celle des Huit Salopards de Quentin Tarantino.

Friday June 19 on the other side of the Atlantic, the "Juneteenth" was celebrated, which commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. This is the date that Beyoncé chose to release her new song, "Black Parade".

"Happy Juneteenth weekend!"

"I hope that we will continue to exchange good humor and to celebrate each other, even in the midst of adversity. Please continue to remember our beauty, our strength and our power", a wrote the singer on Instagram, captioned the first seconds of the song.

A rhythmic piece which is very clearly influenced by the origins of the singer coming from Texas. In this title, written by her husband Jay-Z, Beyoncé also sings: "I'm going back to the South, where my roots are not watered down".

She also evokes police violence, in the midst of a challenge to systemic racism in the streets after the death of Georges Floyd, a 46-year-old African American who was asphyxiated by a white police officer. The former Destiny's Child leader has repeatedly spoken out against racism and police violence while expressing support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

The diva also asked for justice for Breonna Taylor, another black American woman who died in police bullets. She wrote a letter to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to charge the three officers responsible for the death of Breonna in March 2020.

In this single, it is a strong message that launched the singer:

“Being black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. The joy of being black is your right, ”she said.

A near Chuck Berry in 2017, is another giant rock n'roll origins, Little Richard, who has just died at the age of 87. Known for his flamboyant style, his electrifying performances and his expressive voice, he was the author of many classics of the genre such as Tutti Frutti, Lucille or Long Tall Sally.

Pianist and singer, Little Richard - real name Richard Wayne Pennimann - helped lay the foundations of rock'n'roll, like other black artists such as Fats Domino or Bo Diddley, before putting his career down on the back burner from the end of the 50s to turn to gospel singing.

It was only years later, driven by the admiration of young English bands from the 60s - Beatles in mind - that he returned to rock n'roll, reaching a new audience.

Little Richard has also, through his outrageous stage play and his extravagant outfits, influenced the greatest performers of the genre, from Mick Jagger to David Bowie.

Pray, in the house of God and on the day of the main Christian celebration, so that we can overcome this dramatic period as soon as possible and leave with a new consciousness to arrive at a new way of taking care of our neighbor and of the planet, "said the Italian tenor, who gave a concert on Sunday April 12 inside the completely empty Duomo of Milan for Easter.

The voice of Andrea Bocelli resounded inside the completely empty Duomo of Milan like "a prayer" in front of the coronavirus on the occasion of Easter.

The tenor sang several tunes of sacred music, notably the Ave Maria by Charles Gounod or the Santa Maria by Pietro Mascagni, before concluding with the Christian hymn Amazing Grace by John Newton.

“This feeling of being alone at the same time, as we all are, in the presence of the Most High and yet of expressing the voice of prayer with millions of voices, deeply struck and moved me.

Love is a gift. Circulating it is the primary goal of life itself, “shared the singer at the end of his recital.

The Italian tenor's concert was streamed on Youtube.

When the release of his new album Future Nostalgia was initially scheduled for April 3, Dua Lipa recently announced that it would be released today, Friday March 27.

The album was brought up due to a leak that brought tears to Dua Lipa even if the artist has hugely "teased" this release in recent months, gradually revealing certain clips like that of "Don 't Start Now'.

Since the success of "One Kiss" in 2017, in collaboration with Calvin Harris, the young singer has established herself as an essential icon of pop music today.

Almost 25 years old, the Briton of Kosovar origin is already collecting a fine list of achievements with three Brit Awards and two Grammys. Dua Lipa is an author, singer and model.

With Future Nostalgia, she signs one of the best pop albums of recent years.

The opus begins very strongly with the title:

"Future Nostalgia" a feminist hymn in which the singer pays homage to the women who preceded her and ends with the song Boys Will Be Boys, in which she castigates in this post-MeToo period the "bad behavior" of boys.

And at the center of this album: the couple whether it is physical love ("Good in Bed"), passion ("Love Again") or breakup.

Dua Lipa's feminist commitment goes beyond the framework of her songs.

It has proven this repeatedly, through public statements.

Dua Lipa is expected to go on tour after the global health crisis has passed.

Confinement requires, the concerts of all artists are canceled until further notice, with disastrous consequences for some ...

Music softens manners, it seems.

So let's turn to the singers and musicians who share their music with us.

Online, many artists organize as they can surprise concerts or other events of all kinds, broadcast live to their thousands of fans.

Facebook and Instagram have created the #EnsembleALaMaison to federate new video content produced live by artists.

It was also Jean-Louis Aubert (whose tour was canceled) who organized a live Facebook, bringing together 1.2 million spectators.

Christine and the Queens, for example, proposed to her fans to meet each day at 6 pm on her Instagram account "to fool boredom, with guests of choice and questionable concepts".

The singer Silly Boy Blue invited her subscribers to ask her to sing covers on her Instagram account. In story, she takes over Lana del Rey, Jeanne Added, but also High School Musical and Britney Spears. Mathieu Chedid, accompanied by Pierre Richard, celebrated on YouTube the 100 years of his grandmother Andrée. And Laurent Garnier offered seven hours of mix. Chris Martin, leader of Coldplay, stuck in different countries, also gave a concert performing prowess on the piano to his thousands of fans.

Singer and rapper Yungblud delivered a real show in an empty room in Los Angeles, with games between songs (involving Corona beers with Bella Thorne, Machine Gun Kelly and Oliver Tree), broadcast live on YouTube on March 16. The 22-year-old English punk even encouraged the 14,000 simultaneous spectators to make pogos at home. An hour of pure energy…

And here is a song composed by the Great Sophie on containment. Here is a piece published in a video on Instagram. “I am convinced that all together, with our best will by applying this period of confinement as much as it is necessary, we can save lives and help the medical profession which is struggling. Together to stop the virus, together by thinking of others, respecting them also and above all. […]

Courage to all the confined that we are, in telework, with our children, in front of a computer, a book, a film, listening to the radio, with his guitar or his piano, our phones taped in the hands to give and take news in waiting for better days, as quickly as possible, to finally get together again.

I hope this song will give you some strength, keep you busy for two minutes, touch you and make you sing. "

Jean-Jacques Goldman came out of his silence to pay tribute in song to the caregivers but also to all those who continued to work during the epidemic (cashiers, letter carriers, police, soldiers ...).

It is on social networks that the singer unveiled a video in which he resumes his title "He changed life" transformed for the occasion into: "They save our lives".

 And see you very soon for other virtual concerts !!!

Confinement requires.

It's up to you to (re) discover cult films and series in the age of the coronavirus where many film shoots and series have been suspended like Riverdale, or a biopic on Elvis Presley while one of the actors, Tom Hanks, was tested positive for coronavirus and placed in containment.

The release of Dying Can Wait (James Bond 25), Cary Joji Fukunaga, Mulan, Niki Caro, Pinocchio, Matteo, Fast & Furious 9, Justin Lin, Miss, Ruben Alves - and the list goes on - also pushed back)

Put yourself in camera:

Shining (1980) , this classic by Stanley Kubrick, adapted from the eponymous novel by Stephen King,

approaches the camera by making the most of its intrigue. A hotel, lost in the middle of nowhere, whose guardian (legendary Jack Nicholson) is gradually losing his mind. A ghost haunts the bar, binoculars appear around the corridors, and pushing the door of a room is not without risk and peril. Welcome to Overlook.

Or the famous Eight women (2002) A corpse is discovered in a bourgeois house where eight women live…. With this fifth feature film, François Ozon mixes musical comedy with thriller like Agatha Christie. The result ? Part of Cluedo, in a delightfully old-fashioned atmosphere, led by a dream cast: Isabelle Huppert, Catherine Deneuve, Fanny Ardant, Emmanuelle Béart, etc.

Or a whole different genre

"Blue Velvet" , this fourth feature by David Lynch - released in 1986 and back in theaters since March 11 in a restored version - fascinating and disturbing film noir that represents the perfect gateway to the filmmaker's world where violence, voyeurism and sadomasochism intertwine.

It's a little childhood of the director in the small American suburbs which is replayed on the screen. Kyle Maclachlan plays Jeffrey Beaumont, a perfect young man who discovers an ear cut in the grass. Therefore, as the codes of the genre impose, he cannot resist the thrills of adventure ... "It's crazy and dangerous", repeats his future girlfriend Sandy

And then again some great classics

Synopsis: Sarah is a French astronaut who is preparing to leave the earth for a one-year mission, Proxima.

While following the rigorous training imposed on astronauts, the only woman in the middle of men, she prepares herself especially for separation with her 8-year-old daughter.

"In general, the movies on space are five minutes on Earth and then the problems start in space. And yet, the director Alice Winocour does not immerse us immediately in the interstellar universe with her film on the space "Proxima".

After James Gray's recent Ad Astra, on father-son relationships in an epic space opera, Proxima sees Eva Green (Innocents: The Dreamers, Royal Casino, Miss Peregrine, and the peculiar children) as an astronaut, cutting the umbilical cord with her girl.

The director prefers indeed linger, next to the demanding training of the astronaut, on his maternal guilt towards his girl she will have to leave a year for his space odyssey.

It is because tutelage the stars for these heroes removes nothing from the anguish of separation.

Especially his eight-year-old daughter, Stella, with whom this divorced mother shares a love of fusion. The actress, with her singular beauty and the intensity of her playing, makes us feel this intense love for her daughter.

The originality of this film is also in the choice as protagonist of a woman astronaut, Sarah.

A heroine who evolves in a professional world essentially male, where she must at every moment prove more than others. "I am fascinated by the roles of women who are corny, almost virile. Besides, Proxima also pleased me for that: the idea to embody an astronaut with his side very guy. ", Admits the actress in an interview at Paris Match. Yes, Eva Green likes "the physical roles that get you out of yourself. ".

The training scenes, filmed as close as possible to the actress, painstakingly portray the pangs of performance and exigency, in paintings mixing both graphic beauty and emotion.

Filmed in the real sites frequented by astronauts, in Cologne in Germany, then in Star City near Moscow and Baikonur, everything is done so that the spectator discovers this hidden face of the life of the heroes of the space.

An intimate and moving spatial film.

When his latest feature film An Officer and a Spy ("J'accuse") is released in the cinema, the French-Polish director is again accused of rape dating back to 1975.

Valentine Monnier, a 63-year-old photographer and actress, accuses Roman Polanski of raping her in 1975.

In a long gallery, the photographer explains indeed to have been beaten and raped by Roman Polanski in Switzerland, in 1975 when she was 18 years old.

This shocking testimony has given a new impetus to an outcry of several decades, since it would be the 12th alleged victim of Emmanuelle Seigner's husband to break the silence.

In the aftermath of Adèle Haenel's much-talked-about speech in another case, this accusation (which the director "strongly contests" through his lawyer) has seriously questioned the promotion of the film. .

Forty activists also prevented the preview from being held, just before the release of the film.

In this sensitive context, how to talk about the film that won the Grand Prix du jury at the Venice Film Festival ?

Can we still look at Roman Polanski's works just for what they are: movies ?

An exercise all the more difficult for some that the last feature film of the director, J'accuse, in theaters November 13, attacks the Dreyfus affair and a parallel between the fate of the Jewish captain, victim of A miscarriage of justice, and that of the filmmaker, still being prosecuted in the United States for raping a 13-year-old girl more than forty years ago, would not be a coincidence.

Recalling for others that it is essentially a film, no doubt, a film imposing enough, what is more, a film on the case Dreyfus a film on anti-Semitism..

His eyes with golden reflections have closed.

She has appeared in 35 films and sold more than 35 million albums.

She was directed by the greatest in the cinema, embodying her first role in Plein Soleil by René Clément alongside Alain Delon.

She was then only 20 years old, but the actress broke into the New Wave.

Under the Italian sky of the island of Ischia, she embodies Marge, an indolent lover, often dressed in a red and white marinière or molded in denim shorts.

After a first invitation to the Cannes Film Festival in 1959, the young woman follows the roles.

The actress will play on television and in the cinema under the direction of Claude Chabrol, Georges Lautner or Jean-Pierre Mocky. Marie Laforêt also sings nostalgic hits, as it snowed on Yersteday, in reference to the separation of the Beatles, or romantic ritournelles, such as The Harvest of Love, Marie Sweetness, Marie Anger.

"I do not have a voice, I have a stamp," she noted modestly.

Little by little, she gives up the recordings to privilege the writing - she writes her own songs but also a book noticed:

Tales and legends of my private life . Marie Laforêt then moved to Geneva, where she opened an art gallery.

Marie Laforêt, whose real name is Maïtena Doumenach, was born on October 5, 1939 in Soulac-sur-Mer, in Gironde.

At the age of 3, she says thirty-five years later, she is raped by a neighbor: "Impossible to talk about it for decades. "
"Without this rape," she says, "I would not have done a public job that went against my natural shyness.

I chose an outlet job.

Married five times, Marie Laforêt had three children, including Lisa Azuelos, director of LOL, with Sophie Marceau.

"My career is odds and ends, but my life is filled from start to finish," she said.

Since 2015, with the Philharmonie de Paris, the architect Jean Nouvel has lodged a complaint against the latter for "concussion", or perception by a public body of undue sums of money, and "favoritism".

To justify their referral to the national financial prosecutor, Ateliers Jean Nouvel have denounced an "exorbitant" and "unjustified" demand from the Philharmonie, which claims 170 million euros following the soaring costs of construction of the Paris hall.

The budget for the construction of the concert hall which had been evaluated in 2006 at 173 million euros, exploded to reach some 386 million euros on the evening of its inauguration on 14 January 2015. On this sum the cabinet of the famous architect had collected 12 million euros.

In its complaint filed on October 14 with the national financial prosecutor's office, the firm founded by the architect Jean Nouvel "vigorously" challenges the financial request sent by the public institution Philharmonie de Paris, deemed "exorbitant" and "unjustified". According to the Jean Nouvel Workshops, this overshoot is explained by the faulty management of the project by the Philharmonie itself.

"The facts are all the more unusual" as the Philharmonie "has chosen to pursue only the main contractor, excluding companies. This differentiated treatment finds no legitimate explanation, "write in a statement the lawyers of the architect, William Bourdon and Vincent Brengarth.

The lawyers also denounce facts of "favoritism" for service orders made with Bouygues, selected without the agreement of the architect. They finally accuse the Philharmonie of "false and use of forgery" for having signed construction documents with the header of the architectural firm after being sidelined.

Jean Nouvel and the Philharmonie have been involved in a judicial standoff since the inauguration of January 14, 2015, which the architect refused to participate.

La célèbre cantatrice américaine Jessye Norman est morte, lundi 30 septembre, à New York, à 74 ans, a indiqué dans un communiqué, une porte-parole de la famille.

« C’est avec une profonde tristesse et chagrin que nous annonçons la mort de la star internationale de l’opéra Jessye Norman », est-il écrit.« Nous sommes fiers de ses réussites musicales et l’inspiration qu’elle a donnée aux publics du monde entier continuera à être une source de joie, est-il ajouté. Nous sommes également fiers des causes humanitaires qu’elle a défendues, telles que la faim, les sans-abri, le développement des jeunes et l’éducation artistique et culturelle. »

L'une des plus grandes figures de l’art lyrique est décédée hier à New York à l’âge de 74 ans des suites d'une septicémie. Cette grande soprano avait interprété la Marseillaise lors du bicentenaire de la Révolution, en 1989, à Paris.

Son envol en Europe

Née dans le sud des Etats-Unis en 1945, Jessye Mae Norman avait commencé par chanter du gospel, dès l’age de quatre ans, dans la petite église d’Augusta en Georgie que fréquentaient alors ses parents. Puis elle étudia le chant à Washington à seize ans, et sept ans plus tard, elle s'envola pour l’Europe où elle commença sa carrière de soprano avec un premier contrat à l’opéra de Berlin.Elle se produisit ensuite à Paris,à la Scala de Milan, et dans les plus grands festivals.

Un destin américain

Il faudra attendre le début des années 80 pour que Jessye Norman revienne triompher aux Etats-Unis : elle fit ses début au Metropolitan Opéra de New York en 1983, dans « Les Troyens » de Berlioz. En 1985, elle qui était démocrate chanta pour la seconde investiture de Ronald Reagan. Puis la cantatrice enchaînera les galas et les récompenses : le Kennedy Center l’honore, elle reçoit quatre Grammy Awards, puis la Médaille nationale des arts des mains de Barack Obama en 2009.

En 2014 Jessye Norman publia ses mémoires aux Etats-Unis :  Tiens-toi droite et chante ! dans lesquelles elle racontait le racisme auquel elle avait été confrontée, enfant, née dans un sud encore ségrégationniste, comme adulte. Mais aussi dès 1983 dans une interview au New York Times : « Ecoutez, c’est irréaliste d’imaginer que les préjugés n’existent pas.

C’est une chose d’avoir des lois. C’en est une autre de changer le cœur et l’esprit des hommes. Cela demande plus de temps », disait-elle alors.

A la Mostra de Venise, le « Joker » de Todd Phillips, réalisateur de la trilogie Very Bad Trip, a séduit . Une standing ovation de plusieurs minutes a suivi la projection, ponctuée de « bravo ».

Certains journalistes ont même envisagé un Oscar pour l’acteur principal, Joaquin Phoenix !

Brûlot contre les élites politiques et la société retournant le rêve américain en cauchemar, ce Joker version 2019 achève de placer Joaquin Phoenix parmi les plus grands acteurs de sa génération. Avec la carrière impressionnante qu'il s'est forgé en plus de 20 ans, Joaquin Phoenix,encore une fois , réussit un tour de force en endossant le rôle de ce personnage mythique (après Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, etc.).

Arthur Fleck - interprété, donc par Phoenix, (il a bien dû perdre quelques dizaines de kilos pour le rôle) - est un jeune homme qui vit seul avec sa mère malade à Gotham city dans les année 80.

Lui qui rêve de devenir une vedette dans le show du grand Murray Franklin (Robert de Niro), qu'il regarde tous les soirs, ne fait que jouer au clown dans la rue pour gagner sa vie. Confronté à la violence de la société, attaqué par une bande de voyous, le clown inoffensif deviendra à son tour un meurtrier.

L'un des éléments clés pour interpréter le rôle a été le rire cruel si unique du héros, « le rire comme quelque chose de presque douloureux ». « Cela m'a pris longtemps, je ne voulais pas le fabriquer, je voulais le trouver », a raconté l'acteur de 44 ans, expliquant avoir demandé au réalisateur de venir pour « auditionner son rire ».

Cet acteur exigeant, qui excelle dans les rôles troubles, s'est dit intéressé dans ce personnage « pas seulement par son tourment, mais par sa quête pour trouver le bonheur, le contact humain, la chaleur et l'amour », avant qu'il ne bascule.

Le réalisateur Todd Phillip a souligné de son côté que ce personnage était avant tout au départ un homme « en quête d'identité ».« Il ne voulait pas mettre le monde à feu et à sang », a affirmé le réalisateur, qui dit avoir été influencé pour ce film par le cinéma de Martin Scorsese, mais aussi par L'Homme qui rit de Paul Leni (1928), dont le personnage est à l'origine de la création du Joker en 1940.

Ce Joker version 2019 nous plonge dans une descente aux enfers cauchemardesque et place Joaquin Phoenix parmi les plus grands acteurs de sa génération.

Victim of a motorcycle accident on the night of August 11 to 12 in Abidjan, the Ivorian artist Ange Didier Huon - aka DJ Arafat - died at the age of 33 from his wounds in a clinic in Abidjan.

The star of the "coupe-décalé" had a serious road accident, occurred in the night from Sunday to Monday. His motorcycle hit a car driven by a journalist from Radio Côte d'Ivoire. The singer, unconscious, was quickly taken care of and admitted to intensive care.

"He was admitted to emergencies in a vegetative state. He had a fractured skull and edema, "said a Polyclinic doctor. The school's staff tried to revive him, "in vain". His death was finally confirmed by the Ivorian Radio Broadcasting (RTI): "Death of the artist DJ Arafat, his real name Houon Ange Didier, Monday, August 12 at 8 am, from a traffic accident that happened in the night of Sunday. "

Symbol of the "cut-off"

At only 33 years old, DJ Arafat was considered one of the big stars of French-speaking Africa, a major figure of the coupé-décalé in Côte d'Ivoire.

Born in 1986 in Abidjan, DJ Arafat was the son of another well-known Ivorian artist: sulphurous singer Tina Glamor.

Angel Didier Huon had a difficult childhood, which made him sink into alcoholism and banditry at the age of 11. It is the producer Roland Le Binguiste who spots him a few years later, while he regularly goes to the largest maquis of Abidjan, nicknamed Shanghai.

In 2003, at the beginning of the "cut-off" movement, a musical style enjoying a great popularity in Ivory Coast, DJ Arafat made himself known to the general public with his title Homage to Jonathan followed by a first album, "Black tar".

The musical style of the "coupe-décalé" was launched by the Ivorian youth, inspired by percussion rhythms accompanied by a dance that became famous. The arrival of the "coupé-décalé" in Côte d'Ivoire corresponds roughly to the beginning of the Ivorian civil war in 2002.

Nicknamed Arafat for his temperament

With a strong temperament, the young Didier Huon is nicknamed Yasser Arafat by his Lebanese friends. A reference to the former leader of Fatah and the Palestine Liberation Organization. The artist decided to make this nickname his stage name.

Thanks to his first album, the artist is invited in France by the promoter of shows Désiré Kouadio. In 2005, after the release of his second album Woman, he decided to settle in Paris, despite the expiration of his visa soon.

The singer-songwriter returned to the scene with a third album that met with great success in 2008. The 22-year-old artist rose to the top of the rankings in French-speaking Africa. It was in 2010 that DJ Arafat really became the emblem of the "cut-off" movement with a concert at the Palace of Culture in Abidjan.

At the heart of many controversies

Apart from his musical success, the artist is at the center of multiple polemics. He was particularly singled out for domestic violence cases on his ex-companion. He has also maintained many rivalries with artists such as his duo Debordo Leekunfa, with whom he had his first successes.

Despite these controversies, tributes rain. A'salfo, the leader of Magic System, reacted to Jeune Afrique:

"The boy is gone. He lived like a shooting star, he said with emotion. We are all collapsed. In the style of zouglou, internationally, there is Magic System. For the cut-off, it was DJ Arafat ... It's a big loss for Ivorian music.»

On July 1, TMZ released a strange ASAP Rocky video in the middle of a fight in the streets of Stockholm. In a video, we see the American rapper throw an individual on the ground before giving him several shots.

Arrest of the American rapper in Sweden

Arrested and jailed, American rapper ASAP Rocky, suspected of assault after a brawl in Sweden, will remain in detention until July 25, 2019, the time for the prosecution to complete the investigation and ask for his possible removal for violence.

A $ AP Rocky, 30, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was taken into custody in Stockholm on July 3, after a fight, along with three other people, after a fight on June 30 , in the streets of the Swedish capital.

On July 5, a court ordered his imprisonment on the ground that there was "a risk of flight" abroad. The prosecution had until July 19 to conduct its investigations and ask for its referral to a court, for a trial likely to be held in August.

But the prosecutor however asked Friday for a period of investigation and the extension of his pre-trial detention until Thursday, July 25. As expected, the judge in charge of the case followed the requisitions and decided that ASAP Rocky would stay in his cell at the Stockholm prison.

A case that becomes political with the intervention of Donald Trump

His lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, said he was "disappointed" by the decision, denouncing a "disproportionate" incarceration on the facts.

Since his arrest, friends and fans of the New York artist, including Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber, mobilize on social networks to demand his release and denounce a "relentless" Swedish justice.

A petition has even been launched to demand his release. More than 600,000 people signed a petition on the internet #JusticeForRocky calling for his release. Several US Congressmen urged Sweden to release the musician and a former US ambassador to Stockholm, Mark Brzezinski, said he had contacted the Swedish Foreign Ministry and the Royal House, denouncing an "unfairness to racial ".

President Donald Trump himself asked "his team to work for his release." Kim Kardashian, the reality star turned lawyer, with the help of her husband Kanye West, asked Donald Trump for help. The President of the United States spoke on this subject on July 19, from the White House:

"We will make phone calls, we will talk to them. We have already started. Many members of the American black community called me, many friends of mine, telling me that I could help. A little later, Donald Trump confirmed that he had been in contact with Kanye West. "I just talked to Kanye West about the incarceration of ASAP Rocky. I will call the Swedish Prime Minister [Stefan Löfven, ed] to see if he can help me. Many are those who write to see if he can help me. There are many who would like to settle this case quickly, "he wrote on Twitter.

The government told him that justice was totally independent of the executive in the Scandinavian country. "We can not, as ministers, intervene in the course of justice," said the head of diplomacy Margot Wallström.

All efforts have therefore been in vain.

ASAP Rocky's defense argues that he only reacted in self-defense to the provocations of a small group of people who harassed him and followed him and his entourage.

On an amateur video first broadcast by TMZ, the artist puts a young man on the ground and then takes several shots. In other videos, ASAP Rocky repeatedly asks two young men to stop following him. One of the men also beat a member of the rapper's entourage and a parallel investigation was opened against him.

Rapper and model

Originally from New York, ASAP Rocky became known in 2011 with the release of a compilation called Live. Love. ASAP. In 2013, he goes on with his first album "Long. Live. ASAP ".

ASAP Rocky, stylized ASAP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, born October 3, 1988 in Harlem, New York. He is an American rapper. He is one of the members of the New York hip-hop collective A $ AP Mob from where he holds his nickname. He released his first mixtape, Live Love ASAP, in 2011. The success of this one allows him to sign with Sony Music Entertainment labels, RCA Records and Polo Grounds Music. His first album Long. Live. ASAP, released in 2013, debuts at the top of the Billboard 200. His second album, At.Long.Last. ASAP is released on May 26, 2015. It released its third solo album, Testing, on May 25, 2018.

In parallel the rapper continues a modeling career started in 2010. In 2019, he posts on Instagram clichés in which he wears the latest creations of the creator Raf Simons in collaboration with the Australian brand Templa. Always the same year, ASAP Rocky unveils the commercials of his collaboration with the brand Calvin Klein which he is the face of the campaign # MyCalvins33.

"He made an accidental fall, through the window of a high floor of a Parisian building," said Sebastien Farran, one of his managers. The accidental circumstances are also reminiscent of DJ Mehdi, a brother-in-arms also too fast in 2011.

A death that marked the world of French electronic music but also the current "French Touch" (The Funk Mob, Motorbass, Cassius).

One of the most beautiful discography

Awarded a Grammy in 2010 for his performance of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009), Zdar had one of the finest discography courses in France, collaborating with the Beastie Boys, Sebastian Tellier, Cat Power, Kindness, Lou Doillon, Franz Ferdinand, The Rapture, Hot Chip, between two albums for Cassius, the tandem he had formed with his friend Hubert Boom Bass. this son of Savoyard discovered and immersed himself in the arcane recording studios, and quickly crosses the path of Gainsbourg or Etienne Daho.

Alongside his sound engineer and mixer activities, Philippe Zdar will multiply the artistic projects.

"Dreems", fifth album of the Cassius duo.

The release of Cassius' new album, June 21, comes two days after the death of Philippe Cerboneschi said Zdar, half of the electro group he formed with Hubert Blanc-Francard.

This fifth album of the duo Cassius exudes a sensuality that had everything to swirl on the dancefloor our summer.

"The beach is never very far from the turntables. As Vedra or Summer's "balearic" spray suggests, before English-speaking Owlle can boast the sex appeal of Do not Let Me Be or the more pop dreams of Dreams and Walking in the Sunshine. "

Alex Kapranos, singer of Franz Ferdinand, said he was "totally devastated" by the loss of his friend. The French DJ had collaborated with the rock band for their latest song "Always Ascending".

American DJ The Black Madonna pays tribute on Twitter to "a visionary who shaped the global landscape of modern dance music.»

Operated on the heart just two months ago, the singer took his mic to survey America. And he appeared in great shape just two months after his heart surgery

to replace a defective heart valve.

He fires the fire as he proved on Friday, June 21, during the band's concert in Chicago.

A symbolic concert since it marks the return on stage of the Stones after the postponement of their North American tour a few months ago due to the health concerns of their leader.

"I apologize to all our fans who already have tickets. I hate to disappoint you this way, "wrote the singer on Twitter on March 30th.

The fans of the Rolling Stones could finally find it as they had to leave it for a while:

At 75, the "grandpa of rock" is still as bouncy on stage.

Wrapped in a dark sweatshirt, electric guitar in hand, the 75-year-old rocker had released a few hours before his concert a video of him playing some notes in the empty stadium.

Removed from his emotions, the legendary 75-year-old rocker is back on stage in great shape

The overflowing artist, known in his youth for his love of the holiday, has eight children, five grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.

And the septuagenarian continues, year after year, to ensure the show. The current tour of the Beatles' favorite enemies, initially scheduled from April to June, will see the Rolling Stones play 17 times in North America, and end on August 31 in Miami.

"The Rolling Stones kicked off their No Filter tour at Soldier Field in Chicago last night - here's a glimpse of what happened! We will meet again on Tuesday ! Commented the group.

Following the success of Rocketman,

the biopic about his life, Elton John extends his tour of Farewell and adds two concerts in France.

A complete world tour for singer Elton John to global success.

His farewell tour, "Farewell Yellow Brick Road".

Performed at the same time as the release of Rocketman, the biopic about the life and career of the performer of I'm Still Standing, this tour promises to be the last of his career. Started in 2018, it should last several more months.

The reason ?

The huge success of the feature film produced by Dexter Fletcher, already behind Bohemian Rhapsody.

A spectacular show that looks like a retrospective.

Already actor Taron Egerton in the crazy musical Rocketman that was released on May 29, 2019 hoisted the British star to unreachable heights.

But nothing beats seeing the real Sir Elton John, on stage, for his great farewell tour of the "Farewell Yellow Brick Road World Tour," before he finally draws his bow to devote himself entirely to his little family.

Sir Elton John will receive on Friday 21st the Legion of Honor from the hands of President Emmanuel Macron.

Three years after "Rebel Heart", Madonna finally comes back with a new studio album. "Madame X" was released this Friday, June 14th. The icon of the pop unveils this Friday "Madame X", his fourteenth album.

"Madame X" has 15 songs (18 in the luxury version), of which Madonna wrote all the lyrics - in English and Spanish - and shared the production with three regulars, Mirwais, Mike Dean and Diplo and Major Lazer.

A committed album

Asked about her title I Rise, which begins with the voice of Emma Gonzalez, a young high school student who was rescued from the Parkland shooting on February 14, 2018 Madonna, an expatriate in Portugal, responds by taking a more critical look at her country of origin . "America is undergoing extreme changes, some are very disturbing," she says. Song containing a sample of a speech by Emma Gonzalez, activist for the prohibition of firearms, clip featuring transgender rapper Mykki Blanco as Joan of Arc at the stake ...

For her return, "the queen of pop" does not take four paths. "I walked this Earth as black, queer, and HIV positive, but no offense against me was as powerful as the hope that I opposed it." This quote from Mykki Blanco appears at the end of the Dark Ballet clip.

She who has always fought against discrimination does not intend to rest her pilgrim's staff, nor to be silent in the face of the rising of extremes. Hence the sometimes dark tone of Madame X whose cover shows a brown and severe Madonna, with the lips as sewn with a black thread to prevent it from expressing itself.

A disc constantly oscillating between Latin, pop and rap, the return to the production of Mirwais, the former musician Taxi Girl, who had made his last great albums ("Music" in 2000 and "American Life" in 2003), the influence of Lisbon, where she lives since 2017, this character of "Madame X" described as "a secret agent who travels around the world, who changes his identity and fights for freedom" make this 14th album, melting pot with unequivocal political messages, an "uppercut". Mistress shot.

The star will be touring from September in the United States in small venues, before passages in Lisbon, London. She will perform next year at the Grand Rex, in the heart of the capital, for a residency event from February 18 to March 1, 2020. "I will have dancers but not as much as usual. I will have by my side many musicians that I have but not as much as usual. I will have with me many musicians whom I met in Lisbon, I will put them forward ... "

"I found my people here and a magical world of incredible musicians, who reinforced my beliefs about music as the universal soul, connected across the world.

At the age of 102, Sino-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei leaves behind architectural masterpieces. Most major American cities have Pei buildings, and they have left their mark around the world.

Between 1961 and 2009, he signed more than 40 major projects, from the commercial complex to the museum and office towers.

Leoh Ming Pei was born in 1917 in Suzhou, the Venice of China, into a wealthy family. His father is a banker, his mother is a musician. She dies young. Pei is sent to the United States for his studies. He graduated from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in architecture in 1940 and a design degree from Harvard University (1948) where he was a pupil of Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus and one of the theoreticians of the international style. In 1955, he opened his first agency in New York, which in 1989 became Pei Cobb Freed & Partners

In France he is best known for the Louvre Pyramid, emblematic because it bears his mark, both in the choice of shapes and the materials used than in the way he had to finally accept it after the reluctance of Parisians. He stated in the 1980 edition of American Archictecture Now that "The important thing is to know how the building affects life".

Before imposing a building, it is a question of knowing what it fits. His architectural work is the fruit of a dialogue between landscape but also sociology and history, between meeting with the inhabitants and elected officials. Thus the pyramidal form and the glass, fruit of a reflection on the light, respond as much to the roofs of the Louvre Palace as to the Egyptian Obelisk of the Place de la Concorde. He designed with his team a very large hall acting agora, bathed in light. The new museum opened in March 1989, becoming an architectural model.

Pei's style, based mainly on abstract forms, is a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. Pei has always wanted his projects to balance a futuristic vision with places marked by history. Stone, concrete, glass and steel are the main materials of his constructions, which in form, go to the essential, without depriving themselves of technological innovation. Pei notably cultivated the use of reflective glass: on the Bank of China towers in Hong Kong, on the Louvre pyramid or on the east building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington

He was then selected to design in Hong Kong the tower of the Bank of China, an asymmetrical glass structure.

In 1997, he signed, in particular, the Miho Museum in Shiga, Japan, a building, essentially underground, integrated into the environment. Another major work was the German Historical Museum in Berlin in 2003, followed by the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, in 2008 on an artificial island he built.

In his projects in Asia and China in particular, he was keen to go back to basics and draw inspiration from the gardens of his childhood. In Japan, for example, for the Miho Museum near Kyoto, a museum devoted to the tea ceremony, it is inspired by the interior design of ancient temples.

Pei leaves a huge work.

He was recognized during his lifetime and was awarded the most prestigious awards, such as, in 1979, the gold medal for architecture of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as the big medal for He graduated from the Academy of Architecture (Paris) in 1981. In 1983, he received the Pritzker Prize, considered the Nobel Prize in Architecture and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (United States) in 1992.

Doris Day, the sweet-voiced singer and actress whose innocent drama, musicals and romantic comedies made her a star in the 1950s and 1960s, passed away. She was 97. "[Doris] Day was in excellent physical health for her age, until she recently contracted severe pneumonia, which resulted in her death," the foundation said in a statement.

It will be remembered for, among others, What will be, will be, a global hit that has allowed him to bring together the two major axes of his career: song and cinema.

She also has a star for each of them on the "Boulevard of glory" in Hollywood.

The American is 32 years old when, in 1956, Alfred Hitchcock gives her the moving role of a mother whose child is kidnapped by spies coming from the cold in The man who knew too much.

Alongside James Stewart and Daniel Gélin, Doris Day plays a tailor-made role: that of a famous singer who interprets Que sera, will be at the top of her voice to signal to her son that the time of liberation is near.

The song, signed Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, won the Oscar for Best Original Song.

She represented a time of innocence and love for the general public, a universe parallel to that of her contemporary Marilyn Monroe. A recurring joke attributed to Groucho Marx and actor and composer Oscar Levant was that they had known Doris Day "before she was a virgin".

In Pillow Talk, released in 1959 and her first of three films with Rock Hudson, she proudly caught up with what she called

"The contemporary in me".

His reference book, Doris Day: Her Own Story, published in 1976, recounted his money problems and three failed marriages, contrasting with the happy image of his career in Hollywood.

"I have the sad reputation of being a kind girl, the virgin of America, and all that, so I'm afraid it's shocking to some people to say it, but I firmly believe that no one should get married before have lived together, "she wrote.

Despite forty films and public adoration, Doris Day has never won an Oscar. She will have to settle for a Grammy Award for her singing career, with 650 titles to her credit.

But she received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004, when George W. Bush said it was "a good day for America when Doris Marianne von Kappelhoff of Evanston, Ohio, decided to become a artist ".

In 2011 she received an award of excellence from the Association of Los Angeles Film Critics.

Dick Rivers, the yéyés crooner, died on April 24, 2019, at the age of 74, from cancer.

The singer - his real name Hervé Forneri- should have celebrated his 74th birthday today.

It was during several trips to the United States that he discovered blues and rock'n'roll and his symbols - Elvis, Gene Vincent or Vince Taylor.

He started as leader of his group created in 1961 with Jack Regard, Jean-Claude and Gerard Roboly chaining successes and Hey Pony!

It's not serious, Twist in Saint-Tropez.

But a year later, he embarked on a solo career for a career of fifty years and many tours in France and across the Atlantic and to lead the charts with titles such as Va t'en Go and come and make me forget.

While remaining faithful to his crooner fan of American blues, the interpreter has been able to renew itself and seduce his audience.

Five years since the death of Kurt Cobain before his former manager offers in a book his first testimony about an artist "out of time".

Danny Goldberg in the music business since the 1960s, regrets that

"His image in the media was a bit distorted and focused on his death disproportionately, rather than his life and work,"

points out one who has also taken care of another independent rock band, Sonic Youth. Goldberg, who was close to the 25-year-old singer of Nirvana, pays homage to him in the book Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain.

He describes an artist of genius, as well as a melancholy character with a lively mind and a great humanity.

"His voice had an incredible soul," he says, "and sweats vulnerability and intimacy as rarely."

"He had a sensitivity that helped people feel less odd, less lonely," he says.

Author or co-author of all of Nirvana's successes, Kurt Cobain committed suicide on April 5, 1994 in his home in Seattle, a region of the northwestern United States of origin, while the grunge group became a global phenomenon since the release of Nevermind in 1991.

Far from his image as a lingering teenager, this false nonchalance that "hid a very sophisticated mind", such wants to present him the one that Cobain called his "second father".

"I always knew there was a depth behind that energy and the sensations with which he played," says Goldberg.

By showing fragility, Kurt Cobain also broke with a certain vision of rock, says the former manager, and helped to "redefine masculinity" in the world of music.

"He could be powerful and fascinating but also sensitive and caring at the same time," says the one who also collaborated with Led Zeppelin.

The group took off the grunge phenomenon, a musical movement but also clothing and, more broadly, cultural. A meteoric rise, halted by Kurt's desperation during his last weeks, admits former manager

. "Maybe there is a crystallization of the depression that tormented him for a long time," admits the former manager.

"I do not have the passion any more, so remember, it's better to burn all at once than to burn slowly," wrote Kurt Cobain about the word he left with him when he suicide, citing Neil Young's My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue).

Danny Goldberg wrote his book celebrating an artist, "a musical genius," who deserves more than the recurrent evocation of his depression or addiction to drugs.

For him, Kurt Cobain's music continues to speak to a generation born after his death around the world.

"This is one of the few artists whose work is out of time," says Danny Goldberg, who met the American guitarist and composer in 1990, a year before the release of the album "Nevermind", which was going place Nirvana in orbit.

A powerful book that constantly brings us back to the songs of this young cult singer with the eyes of a melancholy blue.

It's a boys-band augmented reality that unleashes the Japanese crowd!

A video game studio has created a virtual boys-band, a first!

Composed of four virtual boys, the ARP group already fills the rooms during live concerts without playback, and sometimes with improvisation.

On January 5 and 6, 2019, about 5,000 people hurried to the Cultural Gymnasium in Yokohama City, Japan, to applaud their new stars.

Since the group has already organized about twenty concerts and released no less than four albums.

What is fabulous is that the band is able to interact with the audience, just as real artists would.

Behind the scenes of the virtual boys-band

The ARP group owes its existence to a 3DCG technology created by Yuke's studio and called ALiS Zero. The latter allows the diffusion of 3D images and sound in real time. Behind the scenes, teams of perfectly coordinated puppeteers lead the movements of the band members, while four very human singers lend their voices to interpret the songs.

Success is already showing up, ARP has yet to progress to supplant Hatsune Miku, another virtual singer of J-pop become a real icon created in 2007 for marketing needs.

She looks like a 16-year-old girl. Since its inception, this virtual singer has become a huge star on YouTube, and provides live performances in the form of a projected avatar in 2D. A few months ago, a 35-year-old Japanese man went so far as to get married with a representation of Hatsune Miku stuffed!

The ARP (Augmented Reality Performers) band seems straight out of a manga and is bound by a contract to a record company (Avex) that has produced successful pop singers in the flesh.

Rapper Nipsey Hussle lost his life on Sunday, March 31, 2019, in a shootout that took place not far from his sports shop, Marathon Clothing Company in Los Angeles.

His passing, at just 33 years old, caused a wave of tributes from his fans, like celebrities who knew him.

Los Angeles police announced on April 2, 2019, she was looking for a suspect named Eric Holder, in connection with the shooting. "Eric Holder is wanted for homicide, in the shooting that killed Nipsey Hussle," writes the LAPD in a tweet.

Rapper Nipsey Hussle, whose real name is Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was murdered Sunday (March 31st) in Los Angeles, in a shootout in front of his daughter.

He was shot dead in front of his clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The Marathon Clothing was inaugurated with great fanfare in 2017. The rapper was shot several times by a man who ran away. Two other people were injured. Nipsey was pronounced dead at the hospital: he was 33 years old.

Strange thing: A few hours before his assassination, the artist published a disturbing message on his Twitter account. No Stop People tells you more. The world of Rap is ruthless. Last year, the rapper XXXTentacion was shot in Deerfield Beach north of Miami.

A few months later, in October, it is the turn of the American rapper Young Greatness to be murdered at the exit of a restaurant. Last summer, rapper Aselineko, 18, was live on Instagram when he was shot in front of the eyes of his daughter and his wife. "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God," was heard screaming his wife several times during the murder of her husband.

On social networks a man has identified himself as the perpetrator of the crime while inciting others to avenge his supposed victim. This is the rapper named Gaston from Long Beach, Los Angeles, who revealed the details of his pseudo murder in a video posted on Instagram Live.

Does it match the suspect that the police have just arrested ?

Deux stars de la K-Pop Jung Joon-young et Seungri ont annoncé leur retraite prématurée.

Le premier a reconnu avoir filmé des sex-tapes, le second d'avoir proposé des prostituées à des investisseurs.

La K-pop vend ses stars aux mines impeccables comme les archétypes de la perfection comportementale.

Mais voilà qu'un scandale à caractère sexuel les éclabousse.

En l'espace de deux jours, le chanteur Jung Joon-young ainsi que Seungri, membre du boys band BIGBANG, l'un des plus grands groupes de K-pop du pays, ont annoncé qu'ils se retiraient du monde du spectacle.

Jung Joon-young, 30 ans, devenu célèbre au Sud pour sa participation à un télé-crochet, a reconnu avoir filmé ses relations sexuelles à l'insu de ses partenaires et partagé les images sans leur consentement.

Seungri, 29 ans, de son vrai nom Lee Seung-hyun, est soupçonné d'avoir tenté de soudoyer des investisseurs en leur proposant les services de prostituées.

Outre l’affaire de pots-de-vins «sexuels», son nom est mêlé à une enquête de la police sur le Burning Sun, boîte de nuit dont il était le directeur des relations publiques.

Le personnel est accusé de s’être servi de caméras cachées pour filmer des femmes et d’avoir utilisé drogues et alcool pour les agresser sexuellement.

On n'attendait de ces stars adulées dans le monde entier rien de moins que la perfection dans leur apparence et leur comportement d'autant qu'elles sont perçues comme « l'exportation culturelle idéale ». Le polyglotte Seungri maîtrise le japonais et le chinois, ce qui l'a rendu très utile à BIGBAND lors de leurs tournées. D'autant que ce groupe doit aussi son succès à des clubs de fans qui dépensent sans compter leur temps et leur argent pour que leurs idoles gravissent les marches de la gloire !

La Corée du Sud est donc sous le choc !

Des caméras espions pour filmer des femmes.

La « molka », ces vidéos tournées par des caméras espions, sont fréquente. Elles sont regardées et partagées de longue date par les Sud-Coréens qui les considèrent comme le moyen de renforcer leurs « liens fraternels ».

Outre la molka, la « vengeance porno » sur internet par des hommes vindicatifs est également fréquente qui mettent en ligne des vidéos de leurs relations sexuelles avec leur ex.

La Corée du Sud est traversée comme de nombreux autres pays par la déferlante #MeToo contre les violences faites aux femmes. Des milliers de femmes ont manifesté plusieurs fois contre la « molka » l'année dernière dans le cadre de #MeToo.

Malheureusement « les vedettes masculines de la K-pop ne font pas exception quand il s'agit de participer à cette réalité perturbante, l'exploitation des femmes », conclut une féministe sud-coréenne.

The activist artist from California, however, refused to appear on stage at the gala evening.

Country singer Kacey Musgraves is the other big winner of an evening reminiscent of the Grammy Awards, which is still an all-American ceremony, even though she sees international stars. The young woman was awarded four awards in total, including the coveted "Album of the Year" for Golden Hour, ahead of Cardi B, Janelle Monae and Brandi Carlile.

If the world giant Huawei was not expected in the musical register, he was able to combine technology and human expertise to offer an end to the unfinished symphony of Schubert.

In 1822, the Austrian composer Franz Schubert had begun the composition of his Symphony No. 8, without being able to complete it.

Or Huawei entrusted the artificial intelligence to finish the symphony of Schubert (the number 8 in B minor).

Huawei has fed an artificial intelligence, embarked on his new smartphone Mate 20 Pro, a hundred original sheet music Schubert and other pieces likely to have influenced the composer at the time.

Then the AI ​​went to work:

She analyzed the timbre, the pitch and the metrics of the first two symphonic movements and gave "harmonic lines" before leaving the hand of American composer Lucas Cantor, winner of several Emmy Awards.

Thus was created the melody of the two missing movements, the third (for which we have some indications of the Austrian musician) and the fourth.

The result was presented to the public for a world premiere Monday, February 4th in the Cadogan Hall in London.

No longer call him "Master Gims" but "Gims" for short. This is what the 32-year-old rapper intimate to his fans on his Instagram page:

"I do not want anyone to call me Master Gims. GIMS is largely enough ... Thank you.

And at the same time he is announcing the release of his next album "Black Belt Part 2 Transcendence", the sequel to his hit album last year.

Its 2 million followers did not fail to react.

Some applauded there seeing a gesture of humility on the part of the singer of The Same, title most listened in 2018.

Others, on the other hand, went there with their ironic little comments:

"Mdr after the clip at the Michael Jackson is the name change to the Puff Daddy," exclaimed one of them, referring to the American rapper Sean Combs who has changed several times of identity " Puff Daddy "to" P. Diddy ', and even' Swag ', before choosing in 2017 for the scene the name' Love aka Brother Love ', less enigmatic.

But why did the artist of Congolese nationality, whose real name is Gandhi Djuna, shorten his pseudonym by breaking away from his prestigious prefix?

The initiator of Sexion d'Assaut gives no explanation.

And to lose oneself in conjectures.

Perhaps a way to turn a page and renew itself, Transcendance just surfing on the tremendous success of Black Belt, has a great marketing move to launch his second album or once at the height of glory, a gesture of humility ...

Still, Gims behind his dark glasses keeps his mystery.

NOTHING is no longer going for Chicago singer Robert Sylvester Kelly. Accused of several sexual assaults, he was indeed released by his record company Sony Music.

"R. Kelly and Sony have decided to separate, "reported Billboard magazine, specializing in the recording industry, Friday, January 18.

It was the descent into hell for the "King" of the RnB who, from the beginning of his career, had been accused of having ambiguous relations with very young girls.

Already in 1994, he was accused of secretly marrying the then 15-year-old singer Aaliyah.

In 2002, he was again in the news with his arrest for child pornography in 2002 after filming his antics with a 13-year-old girl.

He was acquitted six years later.

The coup de grace came from the broadcast in early January on an American channel of a documentary titled "Surviving R. Kelly".

Several women accused the 52-year-old singer and producer of having sex with girls under 16 and of forcing other women to be his sex slaves.

Calls for boycott had multiplied under the impetus of #MeToo and Time's Up, via the #MuteRKelly slogan on Twitter.

Some personalities, including Lady Gaga and Celine Dion, have also requested that their duets with the author be removed from the download and streaming platforms.

A demonstration had also taken place, January 16, in front of the headquarters of Sony Music to request the rupture of the record company with the artist.

Several prosecutors have opened an investigation following these accusations that the 52-year-old singer continues to deny. Chicago Attorney Kim Foxx launched a call for witnesses on January 8. That of Atlanta, the state in which the singer owns a property, is also investigating his side.

Johnny Hallyday's "Pardonne-moi" came out on Tuesday echoing "my Last Letter", which his son David published last week.

Last week, David Hallyday, the son, released the clip for his song My Last Letter, directed by Laura Smet, the girl.

Since Tuesday, Læticia Hallyday releases that of Pardonne-moi, a video directed by Christophe Acker.

And undeniably the two clips unfold in a spectral imagination.

Heroes are alone, dispossessed by an absence.

Læticia Hallyday's double-back, wearing a very Vertigo bun, wanders in an empty house after the disappearance of the loved one and a sign of Johnny Hallyday remains:

the motorbike the leather jacket.

David strolls around Bir-Hakeim and then takes refuge in a thick forest.

A wolf appears, black for him, white for her, both with blue eyes.

The Læticia look - alike communicates with the animal through the bay windows.

It is at the moment when she takes her bath that appears a majestic white wolf, that she tries a little later to touch through the bay window.

Millennial universe where the white widow evolves, shimmers and reflects and where we can see the trees crying through the glass, another reflection screen: that of Johnny.

Johnny is also present in the physical resemblance traits on David's face.

If for David the relation to his deceased father passes by the text in this last letter, for Læticia passes by tattoos or decals.

And what about the symbolic value of a coffee cup found in both clips ...

It's your turn!

Beyond the legal battle, the Hallyday clan shares much more: a common imagination.

"In addition to helping launch my career, he was one of the nicest guys I've ever met," Chance the Rapper wrote among many other tweets.

The American rapper Mac Miller was found dead at home at the age of 26. The death was confirmed by his family in a statement.

Ariana Grande's former boyfriend is said to have succumbed to an overdose at her home in San Fernando, California on Friday, Sept. 7, police sources report to several media outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter. An untimely death at the age of only 26 years old.

The singer had gained a worldwide celebrity in the headlines with his drug problems, his affair with pop star Ariana Grande, and several hits, including one dedicated to Donald Trump, before he became president.

As the sites TMZ and Variety indicate, the interpreter of Donald Trump had drug problems and had opened, especially since his break with the singer Ariana Grande last May. In a documentary released in 2016, Mac Miller made no secret of his addictions, recalls the Hollywood Reporter : "I get high, let's be clear. I get high to death, again, all the time. It will never stop. But I control my life. ". Mac Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, had problems with drug addiction , "Have I used drugs? Yes. But am I an addict? No, " he told Rolling Stone magazine .

The young man has never hidden from his addictions to drugs and alcohol, admitting to Complex magazine an addiction to a drug mix of codeine and promethazine that rappers call "lean " or "purple drank"

The rapper was also arrested at this time for drunk driving after a traffic accident. Her ex-girlfriend tweeted, "Please, take care of yourself . "

But this dependence had consumed the rupture of her relationship with Ariana Grande as she had not hidden it. On Twitter, she said last May that she had "tried to support her sobriety and prayed for her balance for years," adding , "I'm not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that she must be. In duet with her, he had signed a worldwide success, "My Favorite Part"

He was above all an atypical rapper with his retro and sometimes psychedelic hip-hop and his social background, a photographer mother and an architect father. He had grown up in a middle-class neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Even if Mac Miller uses all the gansta hardware, for example using the word "bitch" galore, he describes himself as "a son to mom" , who found his balance thanks to the love of women. "I do not know the story of other rappers' relationships with women, but with my grandmother, my mother, my girlfriends, I can be vulnerable, just myself. "

And it was at the age of 14 that he started rapping, according to the Complex website. A gifted, self-taught and versatile musician, he plays several instruments and in 2011, his debut album, Blue Side Park, rose to the top of hip-hop album sales. His songs offer a minimalist sound with a powerful rhythm reminiscent of the rap of the 80s His song about Donald Trump, seen tens of millions of times, made him known to all Americans, when he was not even 20 years old. His latest album Swimming was released last August when he reached # 3 on the US Billboard charts.

Mac Miller was preparing to go on tour in the United States after the release of his most recent album, Swimming.

A tour that was to start at the end of October.

It was scheduled to begin October 27 in San Francisco. "I just want to go on tour, " he tweeted Thursday. The show is going to be special every night. I wish it starts tomorrow. "

The two French rappers were judged Thursday for their fight in Orly. They risk up to 10 years in prison.I am not at the origin of this brawl, "hammered the artist, immaculate white shirt. "I gave blows to defend myself," he assured, now advocating "appeasement."

Their pitched battle had turned a lobby of the Parisian airport of Orly arena in early August and delayed several flights: Booba and Kaaris, sworn enemies of French rap, are tried Thursday for a brawl that has already earned them three weeks in prison.

At the helm, Okou Gnakouri, aka Kaaris, began to apologize. "It's not really what happened in fact, I apologize to the people shocked by the images," he said before the case was reviewed.

"I'm not at the origin of this fight," hammered the artist, immaculate white shirt . "I gave blows to defend myself ," he assured, now advocating "appeasement."

Plaid shirt, air relaxed, Booba did not make any comment to him before the examination of the video surveillance of the airport.

Up to ten years in prison

Released in late August, the two rappers appear before the Criminal Court of Créteil (Paris region) who had ordered their placement in pre-trial detention. Nine members of their respective clans involved in the fight are also being prosecuted for aggravated violence and robbery. All face up to 10 years in prison.

Since their release, Booba and Kaaris have each paid a deposit of 30,000 euros, are forbidden to leave France and stand in check.

The trial of the two rivals takes place in the excitement. The hearing takes place in the usual room reserved for the assizes, under strong police protection, fully full.

, The president has banned journalists from reporting the trial live on social networks. The first hours of hearing were marked by a false start, for lack of interpreter for one of the defendants.

Faced with the investigators, the two former accomplices who became rivals had played the card of "legitimate defense" to justify their bloody August 1st. That day, they have to take the same plane to Barcelona where they are each expected on stage that night, in two separate clubs.

Voici le titre de l’album posthume de Johnny Hallyday:

"Mon pays c'est l'amour".

Les fans de Johnny l'attendaient avec impatience.

C’est le choix de Laeticia, sa veuve et ancienne directrice artistique.

Le Taulier avait enregistré les titres quelques mois avant sa mort. Pourquoi ce titre « Mon pays c’est l’amour » ?

Déjà pour beaucoup de fans de Johnny Hallyday, il s’agit encore d’un coup pour discréditer les ainés du rockeur, David Hallyday et Laura Smet.

Le titre de l' album posthume de Johnny Hallyday serait-il une pique que Laeticia a dédié à David Hallyday et Laura Smet alors en plein procès contre les aînés du rockeur. Va-t-il plaire à Laura et David ?

Que ces derniers aient contesté le testament de leur père de droit américain on peut le comprendre car ce droit, au contraire du droit français, permet de déshériter ses enfants.

Que signifie « mon pays » dans ce titre ?

La France, les États-Unis ?

St-Barth ?

« Ce disque, c'est clairement celui de Laeticia et de Johnny, peut-on lire dans le magazine Public.

Déjà, il a fait tenir Johnny pendant son cancer. Après sa tournée des Vieilles Canailles.

Il s’est jeté à corps perdu dans ce projet et il l’a terminé la rage au ventre. Laeticia a suivi chaque étape de la création et a passé tout son temps à le conduire à terme. » peut-on lire dans Public

Qui sait ?

Pour beaucoup de fans, Laeticia Hallyday et le clan Boudou auraient presque forcé le Taulier à déshériter David et Laura au profit de Laeticia. Les fans du rockeur sont très attachés à David et Laura.

Et vous qu'en pensez-vous ?

The clip of Apes ** t, directed by Ricky Saiz, is shot in the Louvre, facing the masterpieces of the painters David or Géricault. It was in the privatized rooms of the Louvre that the filming took place last May.

Lyrics are marrying the scenery: when we hear the text "I can not believe we made it?" ( I can not believe that We have succeeded (it's a different perspective) / Have you ever seen the crowd race? ), Beyoncé, also victorious, stands proudly at the feet of the ancient white marble statue The Victory of Samothrace. Her dress unfolds in great white waves similar to the wings of the goddess who is given as messenger of Victory. Once again, we hear it clamored between four walls: "I can not believe we made it."

The choreographies are launched with the dancers in front of the Rite of Napoleon (1806-1807) painted by the neoclassical Jacques-Louis David. Not far, Jay-Z at the bottom of Raft of Medusa (1818-1819) of Théodore Géricault.

The choreography, the gestures of the singer, the couple, the dancers and other guests, sometimes tend to be based on those fixed in oil and eternity. The painting of the romantic Ary Scheffer - The shadows of Francesca da Rimini and Paolo Malatesta appear to Dante and Virgil (1855) - shows us two cursed and entwined white lovers and resonates with this embrace of two contemporary black lovers.

This couple had visited the museum four years ago for a private visit.

The world is too serious to take seriously, the existence too dramatic to live it dramatically, the love too tragic for it to be treated as a tragedy," said the singer and poet , died Friday, April 6 at the age of 77, who has led a career for more than fifty years. "Aziza, his wife, Arthur H, Kên Higelin and Izia Higelin have the pain to announce the disappearance of Jacques Higelin this morning," said the release of the family. In recent months, his close entourage had reported a "fatigue" of the singer.

The family did not want to communicate about the causes of his death. Father of three children artists - singer Arthur H, singer Izia Higelin, and director Kên Higelin - he leaves behind twenty albums that have marked the French song, like BBH 75 (1974), Alert the babies or the diptych Champagne for everyone ... / ... Caviar for the others released in 1979.

At once a whimsical mountebank, a flamboyant poet, this unrepentant dreamer advanced in life "with an open heart, a head elsewhere, in a state of weightlessness" .

But mostly free. For 50 years, he has crossed our discography landscape of rock, folk, experimental or song ... flying words, melodies, rhythms, sounds, facetious or wild like a thoroughbred.

Always in reverse of all this gravity which plumbs the ambient air.

Poet surge, generous, committed, Jacques Higelin has been the author of such hits as Pars, Champagne or Fallen from the sky.The incarnation of the revival of the French song.

At Jacques Higelin, everything was allowed, especially happiness. There was a time, in his debut, where he played the dandy rocker. At the age of 43, at the time of rock, which prevented him from becoming an adult, he sang: "Hey / I was born in a spasm / in a big blazing fire / the belly of my mother spit / a kernel of pleasure / and I have / never lost / the taste of / that ". As the years passed, his kingdom was peopled with simple melodies. Close to a certain lightness. Like Charles Trenet, of course, singer of an era forever gone, of which Jacques will probably remain the only one ...

Born in 1940, he began his artistic career at the theater in the early 60s, before meeting musicians Areski and Brigitte Fontaine, with whom he embodied a revival of French song in the mid-sixties.

Passing from poetry to rock with the same ease, he had celebrated in October 2016 his fifty years of career with Higelin 75, his last album to date. His ultimate album, seems marked by long titles like this striking Timetable on the time spent and the "loveliness of life", or even the shocking J'fume who scans the inevitable decadence;

Higelin has always revolted, and in some of his songs he mentions problems of society, undocumented migrants, and economic difficulties, and has repeatedly engaged himself with the homeless and fixed. He was one of those artists on the Left. who, like Barbara, Renaud or Maxime le Forestier, invest in humanitarian concerts.

We needed a break, " said Dolores O'Riordan in 2012.

The band breaks up, the singers wanting to devote themselves to their solo career.

Chester Bennington s’est bien suicidé par pendaison jeudi à Los Angeles. L’institut médico-légal a confirmé le suicide de l’artiste de 41 ans. La tournée du groupe est suspendue.

C'est exactement le jour de l’anniversaire de son grand ami Chris Cornell, âme du groupe grunge Soundgarden que Chester Bennington a mis fin à ses jours.

Le chanteur de metal Linkin Park s’est donné la mort jeudi.

Le suicide a été confirmé par l'institut médical du comté de Los Angeles. L'artiste de 41 ans a été découvert par un employé, pendu par une ceinture à la porte de sa chambre, à son domicile de Palos Verdes Estates, au sud-ouest de Los Angeles.

Aucun message pour expliquer son geste.

Une autopsie sera  pratiquée ultérieurement.

Ches­ter Benning­ton a lutté toute sa vie contre ses démons surve­nus après avoir été abusé à l'âge à l’âge de 7 ans.

« I got a heart full of pain, head full of anger » (j'ai le cœur rempli de douleur, la tête pleine de haine) chan­tait il déjà en 2003 Ches­ter Benning­ton dans Nobody's liste­ning, alors qu'il n'avait que que 27 ans.

« Je danse avec mes démons, je suis suspendu au bord, […] personne ne peut me sauver main­te­nant », expliquait-il ainsi dans Nobody Can Save Me, le premier titre du dernier album de Linkin Park, One More Light .

Il n'a jamais voulu porter plainte contre son agresseur

« Être frappé et violé, ce n'était pas drôle. Personne ne veut que ça vous arrive, et honnê­te­ment, je ne me souviens pas de quand ça a commencé. » avait-il confiait au Guardian

Ce drame remontera à la surface à l'arrivée en voyant une photo de lui enfant alors que lui-même était père.:

« Et tout d'un coup, parce que j'ai moi-même des enfants, j'ai pensé:

'C'est à ça que ça ressemble.' Et je me suis souvenu. Mon Dieu. Je me suis souvenu de ce qu'il m'était arrivé à ce moment-là et même en y pensant aujourd'hui, j'ai envie de pleu­rer. J'étais telle­ment petit, plus petit que ce que je pensais. Mon Dieu. Ce n'est pas éton­nant que je sois devenu un junky. Ce n'est pas éton­nant que je sois devenu fou pendant un moment. »

Il se réfugia dans la drogue, cocaïne,métham­phé­ta­mine et LSD pour oublier.

C'est grâce à la musique qu'il a pu continuer à vivre.

Mais après le suicide de son ami le chan­teur de Sound­gar­den Chris Cornell il perdit pied ne réussissant pas à surmonter une épreuve de plus.

«Ta voix était joie, douleur, colère et pardon, amour et déchirement, réunis en un», avait écrit Chester Bennington dans une lettre ouverte à son complice. «J'imagine que c'est ce que nous sommes tous», avait-il ajouté. «Tu m'as aidé à comprendre ça.»

Ches­ter Benning­ton était père de six enfants.

Après l'annonce du décès du chanteur, une pétition a été lancée pour inciter la ville de Santa Monica à rebaptiser Lincoln Park, le parc qui a inspiré le nom du groupe, Linkin Park. Ce samedi matin, elle avait récolté plus de 10.500 signatures

Les hommages se sont multipliés depuis l'annonce de son décès.. «Tu nous as montré inlassablement ce que c'était que d'être un incroyable être humain», ont écrit les membres du groupe Stone Temple Pilots, dont Chester Bennington fut brièvement le chanteur.

Près d'un demi-siècle après la sortie de la célèbre chanson de John Lennon "Imagine", sa veuve et collaboratrice Yoko Ono va finalement être reconnue comme co-auteure de cette ode à la paix.

L'annonce surprise a été faite lors d'une cérémonie organisée mercredi soir à New York pour déclarer le titre, sorti en 1971, "chanson du siècle".

Alors que Yoko Ono et son fils, Sean Lennon, montaient sur scène pour recevoir ce prix, l'organisme américain National Music Publishers Association a révélé que l'artiste japonaise verrait désormais son nom accompagner celui de son mari assassiné comme co-auteure d'"Imagine".

"L'un des plus grands moments de fierté de ma vie"

Un précieux, mais tardif, signe de reconnaissance pour celle qui a souvent été accusée par des fans des Beatles d'avoir brisé le groupe et "volé" Lennon. Les organisateurs ont à cette occasion diffusé une interview de John Lennon datant de 1980, peu avant son assassinat, dans laquelle il confiait que la chanson avait en partie été inspirée d'un livre d'art de Yoko Ono, "Grapefruit". "'Imagine' aurait dû être présentée comme une chanson de Lennon/Ono. Si ça avait été qui que soit d'autre que ma femme, je l'aurais mentionné", confiait John Lennon.

Sean Lennon, enfant unique du couple Ono-Lennon, a publié une photo sur Instagram pour immortaliser l'événement et dire sa fierté:

La rockeuse et poète Patti Smith a célébré l'occasion en interprétant "Imagine" avec sa fille Jesse Smith lors de la cérémonie, pendant que Yoko Ono et Sean Lennon acceptaient le prix.

"Alors que les choses auraient pu être différentes en 1971, je suis heureux aujourd'hui de dire que les choses ont changé", a indiqué David Israelite. "C'est donc mon honneur ce soir de corriger l'enregistrement quelque 48 ans plus tard, de reconnaître Yoko Ono comme coauteure de la Chanson du siècle "Imagine" et de présenter Yoko Ono avec le crédit qu'elle mérite."

"Imagine" de John Lennon and Ono reprise dans nos temps troublés pour les victimes des attentats.

L'artiste prépare actuellement un film sur son histoire d'amour avec John Lennon. A ses côtés les producteurs Josh Bratman (Fright Night, Priest) et Michael de Luca (Judge Dredd, Freddy).

Il était membre des deux groupes incontournables de la scène rock américaine.

Quelques heures auparavant le chanteur du grunge était sur scène à Detroit. Il venait de donner un concert avec Soundgarden au Fox Theatre. Huit heures plus tôt, le chanteur avait posté une photo sur Twitter de Detroit dans le Michigan. Une expertise doit être réalisée afin de déterminer les causes du décès.

Originaire de Seattle, Soundgarden le chanteur américain a été la figure de proue de la scène grunge aux côtés d'Alice in Chains, Nirvana et Pearl Jam, tous issus de la même ville.

Il est connu mondialement pour ses chansons Black Hole Sun ( Soundgarden), ( Audioslave) ou encore You Know My Name, titre enregistré pour la Bande Originale du film.

Chris Cornell a créé le groupe Sound­gar­den en 1984 avec le guita­riste Kim Tayil et le bassiste Hiro Yama­moto.

Dix ans plus tard le groupe connaît le succès mondial avec son troisième album, "Superunknown" sorti en 1994 dont les singles Black Hole Sun et Spoon­man rece­vront respec­ti­ve­ment les Grammy Awards pour la meilleure perfor­mance de hard rock et la meilleure perfor­mance de metal en 1995.

En 2012 il reforme à nouveau le groupe Sound­gar­den, avec lequel il était actuellement en tour­née mort.

Le titre Coco Câline – « Je te veux, prends-moi ! » .

« A 35 ans, je devrais peut-être arrêter avec ça ! »  et  «le Lac»

La tournée de Julien Dore a débuté par une tournée au Zénith , participera à de nombreux festivals cet été avant de la terminer le 15 décembre à l’AccorHotels Arena.

Jean noir, veste noir ajustée qu’il tombe montrant à la salle en ébullition ses biceps tatoués, il joue de son corps sur la scène devant un public survolté, tout acquis.

La silhouette du chanteur se dessine au cœur d’une esperluette géante, le logogramme de la pochette de son quatrième album sorti en 2016. Le concert débute d'ailleurs par le premier titre de ce disque Porto-Vecchio

La scénographie est impressionnante, épurée :Les six musiciens répartis entre deux grands blocs blancs dont les bords s’illuminent.

Au centre, le nouvel emblème de Julien Doré, le "&", change sans cesse de couleur : bleu, orange, rouge sang.

Il permet aussi de projeter des images sur un petit écran.

Pendant qu'il chante Beyrouth Plage, Julien Doré retrouve son double en vidéo, habillé en motard pour l'imiter et retourne aux avant-postes pour se jeter dans la fosse Un vrai félin déchaîné! Le musicien fend la foule, monte dans les gradins pour encourager la fouler à chanter toujours plus fort.

On ne quitte pas la plage. Julien Doré enchaîne avec Coco Câline, son dernier single aux accents balnéaires. Tendre et sexy. "Je te veux Coco Câline, je te veux…" "Prends-moi !", répond le public, déjà chaud.

Un panda débarque alors sur scène (celui de la pochette du single)

Il reprend également d’anciens titres, comme le tube de 2013, Chou Wasabi, l' irrésistible. "Baby, I love you less and less…" ("Bébé, je t’aime de moins en moins"). L’esperluette laisse alors apparaître des images vidéo issues du documentaire tourné dans le sud de la France par Julien Doré au moment où il enregistrait son album.

Seul au piano droit, il tombe le masque du performer et aborde ensuite un répertoire plus sensible.

Place maintenant à la partie plus intimiste du show. Accompagné de son équipe de six musiciens – parmi lesquels Arman Méliès à la basse – le chanteur chante les titres de son dernier disque, & . Juliette Armanet, qui a assuré sa première partie, le rejoint pour un duo exceptionnel sur La Carte postale de la jeune pianiste.

Une dernière escapade : Paris-Seychelles. Seul au piano Julien Doré, puis le groupe le retrouve au complet.

La scène est plongée dans une lumière mauve, chaude.Puis lâcher de ballons. L’artiste disparait dans une fumée blanche...

«Chuck Berry fut le premier auteur rock à se montrer malicieux et amusant. Le premier chanteur dont les paroles valaient la peine d'être écoutées» (Mick Jagger)

Père du rock'n'roll, le guitariste de légende Charles Edward Anderson Berry, dit Chuck, s'est éteint à l'âge de 90 ans.

Il a été découvert sans vie, ce samedi, à son domicile du comté de Saint Charles, dans le Missouri.

Son succès Johnny B. Goode de 1958 reste à ce jour un des titres les plus connus de la musique du rock'n'roll.

Il laisse une œuvre immense. L’artiste se nourrit de différentes influences allant du blues à la country. Et a inspiré de nombreux artistes.

Berry connut le succès dès 1955, soit un an après That's Alright Mama, avec Maybellene le 45-tours le plus joué dans les juke-boxes des les États-Unis.

En 1958, année particulièrement féconde, ce sera Sweet Little Sixteen, le fameux Johnny B. Goode, probablement son hymne rock’n roll le plus célèbre, Around And Around, Beautiful Delilah, Carol, Sweet Little Rock’n’Roller.

A cela il faut Little Queenie, Back In The USA et Memphis Tennessee en 1959, Let It Rock et Bye Bye Johnny, en 1960.

Son titre le plus emblématique : Johnny B. Goode, base de centaines d’hymnes rock. « Johnny B. Goode c'est un peu mon histoire, celle d'un musicien qui monte dans une grande ville pour y trouver le succès», racontait-il

Les groupes anglais, Beatles et Rolling Stones en tête, ont repris ses chansons.

Des Beach Boys aux Kinks, en passant par Jimi Hendrix et Bruce Springsteen, la plupart des rock stars ont repris ses morceaux ou s'en sont inspirées largement.«Beaucoup de gens m'ont copié. Généralement, ce sont des proches qui me préviennent qu'on a repris telle ou telle de mes chansons, ou qu'on a employé un de mes accords dans un morceau», disait-il avec amertume. En France, Eddy Mitchell et la jeunesse yé-yé firent de même.

Pour son soixantième anniversaire, le réalisateur Taylor Hackford lui consacra le long-métrage Hail! Hail! Rock'n'roll. Il a filmé deux concerts donnés à Saint-Louis en 1986 notamment avec Keith Richards. Sa personnalité acariâtre à côté de son génie musical transparaît alors dans quelques séquences du film. Berry a fait vivre un enfer aux équipes du film et du concert.à tel point que Richards résuma le comportement de Berry à celui d’un « enfoiré de première catégorie »

Il avait de plus conservé des rapports très difficiles avec l'argent.«L'argent a beaucoup d'importance pour moi, disait-il. Il m'a aidé à sortir de ma condition.». Légende, exagération ou réalité, avant chaque concert il exigeait le cachet prévu cash demandant même une rallonge... C'est ainsi que le grand rocker américain, Bruce Springsteen, l'a ainsi accompagné sans jamais être payé.

Il connut par ailleurs des démêlés avec la justice peu glorieux allant du contrôle fiscal à l'accusation de souteneur qui lui valut quelques mois de prison.

Devenu homme d'affaire, il fut par la suite un peu moins moins présent sur scène et ne fit aucun nouvel enregistrement depuis l'album Rock It en 1979. Mais ironie de l'histoire, Chuck Berry préparait au moment de sa mort un nouvel album studio.

On retiendra à jamais ce géant fondateur du rock'n'roll arpentant les scènes, éternellement flanqué de sa Gibson rouge et effectuant son légendaire duckwalk, sa fameuse marche de canard, mis au point un soir pour cacher les plis disgracieux de son pantalon.

Dans une interview au magazine GQ en 2004, George Michael avait évoqué sa rencontre avec son compagnon Kenny Goss.

Ce fut une histoire d'amour qui empêcha la star de ne pas sombrer totalement dans la dépression .

C'est en pleine gloire qu'il perdit en effet son petit-ami brésilien Anselmo Feleppa décédé d'une hémorragie cérébrale en 1993.

Trois mois seulement après leur rencontre la superstar apprenait de la bouche même de son petit ami styliste son diagnostique séropositif.

George Michael n'était pas à ses côtés car cette mort était inattendue et le styliste avait quitté Londres pour épargner sa célébrité.

« S’il avait été aux States ou s’il était resté à Londres, il serait resté en vie parce que six mois plus tard tout le monde était en thérapie de combinaison. »

« Ma célébrité l’en a empêché, cela m’a fait sentir très coupable » avoua la star.

C'est le lendemain de la mort d'Anselmo que George Michael décide enfin d'annoncer à ses parents son homosexualité dans une longue lettre.

Décès de la popstar ce dimanche de Noël.

Son agent dimanche soir a déclaré au magazine Billboard que le chanteur aurait succombé à une crise cardiaque.

Selon la BBC, la police précise que la mort de l'artiste à son domicile de l'Oxfordshire est dénuée de circonstances suspectes.

Si le chanteur britannique décédé le 25 décembre a tardé à reconnaître son homosexualité, il s'est aussi retrouvé au cœur de nombreux démêlés avec la justice, notamment pour ses problèmes d'addiction à la drogue.

«Une autopsie va être menée en temps voulu», a précisé la police.

« Je suis profondément choqué. J’ai perdu un ami cher, le plus gentil et le plus généreux, et un brillant artiste.

Mes pensées vont à sa famille et à tous ses fans », a réagi le chanteur britannique Elton John sur Instagram.

Avec le groupe Wham !, il chantait Last Christmas.

Celui de 2016 aura malheureusement été son dernier : George Michael est décédé ce week-end, à l'âge de 53 ans .

" Son décès, "dans la quiétude" de sa maison de famille, serait lié à des causes naturelles selon les premières déclarations de la police.

Star au parcours tourmenté le chanteur s'était éloigné de la scène ces derniers mois – on le disait parfois en désintox (ce qu'il a démenti), ou bien accro au crack. Deux ans auparavant, en 2014, George Michael avait connu un come-back remarqué.

En 35 ans de carrière, que ce soit avec son groupe ou en solo, George Michael a vendu plus de 100 millions d'albums. Parmi ses tubes : Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Careless Whisper, Faith ou encore I want your sex.

Né Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou à East Finchley, dans le Nord de Londres, d’un père (restaurateur) chypriote et d’une mère (danseuse) anglaise, le jeune homme prend le nom de scène George Michael à la fondation de son premier groupe avec un camarade de lycée, Andrew Ridgeley. En 1981, tout deux crée un duo du nom de Wham! qui joue dans « une veine disco-pop mâtinée d’influences soul façon Motown. »

Le groupe des midinettes dans l'Angleterre des années Thatcher.

Wham ! symbolise une jeunesse cherchant à s’échapper dans des danses colorées. Rapidement, le tandem devient l’un des groupes les plus populaires du pays grâce à des titres comme Young Guns (Go For It !) en 1982, Wham Rap (Enjoy What You Do) et Club Tropicana, en 1983 ; Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, en 1984 les propulsent mondialement.

Malgré l’immense succès, le groupe met fin à ses activités en 1986, date à laquelle Georges Michael débute sa carrière solo.

Après un dernier gros tube, Everything She Wants, et un troisième album, Music From the Edge of Heaven, le duo se sépare donc en 1986.

Michael commence sa carrière solo sous son nom en 1984 avec la ballade, Careless Whisper avec le saxophone langoureusement plaintif . Un succès mondial.

Carrière en solo avec Prince comme influence majeure.

George Michael de plus en plus attiré par la soul, le funk, et « un R’n’B révolutionné par les syncopes de Prince ». Ce dernier sera d’ailleurs l’influence majeure d’un premier album, Faith (1987).

En solo George Michael poursuit sa route du succès en remportant entre 1989 trois American Music Awards et un Grammy pour son album Faith, qui contient notamment le tube très suggestif I Want Your Sex avec la mise en scène de son sex-appeal.

Georges Michael a participé à quelques-uns des événements les plus marquants de la planète, comme le " Free Nelson Mandela Concert " en 1988 à Wembley .

Son engagement devient de plus en plus visible.

En 1990 il cherche à s'imposer en tant que musicien plus adulte, plus introspectif, mais aussi plus engagé (Praying For Time).Il va même jusqu'à ne plus répondre aux interviews et ne plus apparaître dans ses clips (dans celui de Freedom !’90, il envoie à sa place les plus célèbres mannequins de l’époque comme Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista entre autres.

En 1996, George Michael connaît le succès international avec son troisième album, Older, présenté comme celui de la maturité. Et pourtant il est arrêté pour atteinte à la pudeur dans les toilettes publiques d’un parc de Beverly Hills. Son ami Elton John remarque alors qu’« une pissotière n’est pas le meilleur endroit pour faire son coming out Mais l’Anglais dit alors avoir été mal à l’aise avec son statut de star et son image d’homme à femmes

Mais tant que vous n’avez pas dit “je suis gay”, vous n’avez pas fait votre coming out ».

Il arrête la scène pendant près de quinze ans : « J’ai toujours eu l’impression que ce grand cirque menaçait ma santé mentale ».

L'album "Patience"en 2004 occupe la première place des ventes au Royaume-Uni.

George Michael repart en tournée de 2006 à 2008, à la faveur d’un « best of » intitulé Twenty Five.

En 2011, il se lance dans une nouvelle tournée, accompagné d’un orchestre symphonique.Fin novembre 2011, il annule son concert londonien du Royal Albert Hall en raison d’une pneumonie . Son état avait nécessité des soins intensifs, en raison de la sévérité de l'infection à pneumocoques qu'il avait contractée.

En retrait ces dernières années, un album était en préparation avec

le producteur britannique Naughty Boy.

La pop star prévoyait également de sortir un documentaire autobiographique en 2017.

Madonna, élue Femme de l'année, dénonce le sexisme dans un discours décapant

Elue "Femme de l'année" par le magazine Billboard, Madonna n'a pas mâché ses mots et a profité de cette distinction pour dénoncer le sexisme "flagrant" dont elle a été victime durant sa carrière. "On me comparait à Satan".

La femme de l'année, c'est bien elle ! Après Lady Gaga, le magazine Billboard a décidé de remettre la distinction à Madonna.

Mais la chanteuse américaine, au succès international et jamais démenti, n'a pas versé dans de longs remerciements.U CONTRAIRE ! En recevant son prix à New York, où s'est déroulée la cérémonie des Billboard Women in Music, Madonna a prononcé un discours féministe sans concession.

A Pugnace, elle a réglé ses comptes avec l'industrie en rappelant les difficultés rencontrées à son arrivée dans la mégalopole en 1978 :

« New York est un endroit effrayant. Durant ma première année ici, j'ai été violée sur un toit, un couteau sous la gorge. On m'a cambriolée, puis j'ai perdu beaucoup d'amis à cause de la drogue ou des armes. Tous ces événements ont fait de moi cette femme audacieuse qui se tient devant vous mais m'ont aussi rappelé à quel point j'étais vulnérable ».

Le pouvoir des femmes doit s'affirmer.

Durant 34 ans, la star a fait face « à un sexisme flagrant, à la misogynie et à l'intimidation constante ». « Les gros titres me comparaient à Satan .(...) j'ai compris que les femmes n'avaient pas la même liberté que les hommes » a-t-elle souligné.

« Quand vous êtes une femme, vous devez jouer le jeu. Mais quel est ce jeu ? Vous avez le droit d'être belle, mignonne, sexy. Mais ne soyez pas trop intelligente, n’ayez pas d'opinions, sinon vous ne serez pas dans la norme » a-t-elle ajouté.

David Bowie est resté sa Muse dans ce Star-system qui broie les individus et particulièrement les femmes.

Elle en appelle à la solidarité féminine comme pouvoir contre cet autre pouvoir qu'est le machisme.

Poursuivant son discours très engagé, Madonna a ensuite salué ironiquement tous ceux qui ont voulu lui mettre des bâtons dans les roues. Leur méchanceté lui a donné au contraire plus de force :

« votre résistance( ...), a façonné la battante que je suis aujourd'hui »
Madonna a fini par remercier l'organisation de la soirée pour avoir, à travers ce prix, remarqué son esprit rebelle à qui elle doit sa longévité !

La nouvelle tournée de Michel Sardou en 2017

et sa franchise crue vis-à-vis des politiques .

"Il faut maintenant, simplement, que je travaille avec une prof du Conservatoire, une jeune femme charmante, qui va me replacer et me faire monter au maximum de ce que je peux faire maintenant, compte tenu de mon âge"

C'est un artiste de 69 ans qui a décidé de remonter sur les planches , depuis l’annulation de sa tournée en 2013, pour chanter des chansons divertissantes.

Michel Sardou se lancera dès le 26 décembre 2016 dans une nouvelle tournée qui sera, selon ses propres propos, sa dernière. Cette tournée s’achèvera le 3 janvier... 2018. Après une tournée triomphale en 2013 et 4 ans d’absence, ses fans le retrouveront dans les plus grands festivals dès l’été 2017, en tournée en France, Belgique et Suisse à partir du 30 septembre 2017 et à La Seine musicale sur l’Ile Seguin pour 7 représentations exceptionnelles.

Avant de reprendre la route, le chanteur de 69 ans doit encore réapprendre à travailler sa voix. C’est à cause d' une grave infection ORL (oto-rhino-laryngologique) qu'il na pas pu chanter pendant ces trois dernières années.

"Heureusement, j’ai un très bon médecin

. De son registre il bannit toutes chansons engagées qui dit-il peuvent blesser des gens. Ne vous attendez donc plus au « France » ou à « la débandade ». Fini l'engagement politique, fini le soutien apporté à des hommes politiques.

Michel Sardou semble à ce propos être revenu de tout n'ayant pas même voter aux primaires de la droite ! Il pense cependant que François Fillon est un bon compromis. Mais il n'apportera plus son soutien de chanteur engagé dans la politique.

Pourquoi ?Il ne mâche pas ses mots pour parler de ces derniers et n'utilise pas la langue de bois pour tacler tous ces guignols !

De plus il pense tout simplement que cela n'apporte rien à la femme ou à l'homme politique et rien non plus à l'artiste. Alors à quoi bon ! Maintenant il préfère faire rire le public dans ce monde si troublé... Ce qui est sûr cependant c'est son aversion à l’égard de la gauche actuelle qu'il vomit. « La gauche, je n’en veux plus. C’est terminé. » a-t-il affirmé sur le plateau de TF1.

Michel Sardou interprétera donc ses plus grands tubs et des nouvelles chansons pour «  sa dernière danse » afin de remercier son public fidèle depuis 50 ans.

"À l'attention du Dr Philippe Siou, écrit Michel Polnareff. Je trouve absolument intolérables

ces attaques quant à votre intégrité et les menaces qui l'accompagnent."

Gilbert Coullier, le producteur de la tournée de Michel Polnareff, a annoncé à l'AFP qu'il avait pris des mesures : "Comme vous le savez une procédure a été engagée, je ne souhaite donc pas m'exprimer sur le sujet pour l'instant."

Le Journal du Dimanche du 11 décembre émettait des doutes sur le fait que le chanteur souffrait bien. Ou l'embolie pulmonaire bilatérale n'avait-elle pas servi "à légitimer l'annulation de deux concerts" ?

Une annulation qui pourrait coûter 500 000 euros à Coullier Productions. Productions. Le chanteur s'est exprimé sur les réseaux sociaux trouvant "intolérable" les "attaques" et les "menaces" qui attaquent le docteur Siou

Serge Lama fait en novembre dernier son grand retour avec son nouveau disque, Où sont passés nos rêves, huit ans après la sortie de son dernier album. Pour cet opus, il a travaillé avec de nombreux chanteurs et compositeurs tels Obispo, Calogero, Bruel, Cabrel mais aussi Carla Bruni.

Pour le chanteur âgé de 73 ans ce nouvel opus lui permet de tenir le coup après le décès de son épouse Michèle.

"Avec le malheur qui vient de me frapper, ce disque m'aide à tenir le coup" affirme-t-il dans Platine.

Et de continuer sur Johnny Halliday

"Johnny m'étonne depuis toujours. On a le même âge ; Il a une vie très difficile en se sortant de toutes les situations. . C'est le seul montre sacrée de la chanson française, avec Charles Aznavour".

Une autre personnalité que celle du rocker a toute l’admiration de Serge Lama.

Carla Bruni qui a également participé à son album. « (...) je ne connais pas de personne plus directe, simple et polie qu'elle. Elle m'a scotché ».

Au coeur de "L'affaire Polnareff", on trouve son médecin, le Docteur Philippe Siou. bien connu des personnalités"le médecin des puissants". C'est un praticien de l'hôpital américain de Neuilly qui a une clientèle VIP. Il en a même tiré un livre, dans lequel il raconte ses interventions avec les grands de ce monde.

Y-a-t-il une possible manipulation du chanteur autour de sa maladie pour échapper aux concerts prévus ? Et le docteur de l'hôpital américain de Neuilly que l'on surnomme "le médecin des puissants"?

Dans le Parisien, il déclare notamment, "Je ne suis pas l'ami de Michel Polna­reff, je suis méde­cin, un tech­ni­cien, un prati­cien" . N'en demeure pas moins qu'il est le médecin soignant les puissants de ce monde jusqu'au colonel Kadhafi.

Jack­son, Richard Nixon et égale­ment Sharon Stone le prendraient non seulement comme médecin mais aussi comme confident. C'est ainsi qu'il raconte dans son livre, Propofol, aux éditions Léo Scheer. qu'au lieu de méde­cin, il a plutôt fait office de « nounou » pour Michael Jack­son plusieurs nuits ! Une bien drôle conception de la médecine peut-on penser !

« Il faut savoir ne pas leur dire non, tout en ne faisant pas n’im­porte quoi. (.. .). Tenir est un exer­ci­ce… » .

Qu'en est-il pour Michel Polnareff ?

Rappelons que ce sont les producteurs qui montent au créneau vue les pertes considérables d'argent dues à l'annulation des concerts...

"24K Magic" est le premier extrait d'un album éponyme
Cette chanson célèbre les soirées passées en compagnie de jolies jeunes femmes et fait, avec ses synthétiseurs et son rythme entraînant ; C'est un disque dansant, festif, influencé par les années 1990 et le hip-hop , rock et soul.

Le chanteur-compositeur et musicien multi-instrumentiste originaire de Hawaï de 31 ans est un habitué des mégasuccès dans les classements des meilleures ventes depuis son album "Unorthodox Jukebox" en 2012 comme son titre "Uptown Funk" avec Mark Ronson fin 2014.

Chanté en février dernier à la mi-temps du Super Bowl, la finale du Championnat de football américain, l'événement le plus regardé de la télévision américaine.

Pour parvenir à ses hauteurs Bruno Mars n'a pas hésité à parler de plusieurs sacrifices et sa capacité de résistance durant les périodes difficiles.

Il a également insisté sur le travail qui entourait la sortie d'une chanson. En évoquant la nomination de sa chanson Grenade aux Grammy Awards

:De sa chanson Grenade, il explique :

« Nous [les auteurs/compositeurs de la chanson] avons travaillé vraiment dur sur cette chanson, pendant trois mois, déchirant les feuilles de papier, essayant

de faire arriver ce titre là. C’est bien que ça soit reconnu. Nous sommes fiers de cette chanson et nous espérons sortir victorieux à l’issue de la cérémonie des Grammy Awards.

Ce doué des instruments comme des paroles n'a pas fini de nous étonner, exigent envers lui-même, pour communier à chaque concert avec son public .

Sa prochaine tournée 2017 en France ne manquera pas d'être un succès. Le chanteur participera au "fashion show" de la marque Victoria’s Secret qui se tiendra à Paris en décembre 2016 (diffusé le 5 décembre sur CBS).

La chanteuse n’a pas gardé de très bons souvenirs du passé…AVEC SES EX.

°La chanteuse vient de tourner pour Luc Besson .

°Elle a été nommée égérie Dior cette année.

°Elle a présenté sa collection Fenty x Puma lors de la dernière Fashion Week de Paris.

Pourtant, la chanteuse est toujours célibataire.

Depuis sa rupture définitive d’avec Chris Brown en 2012 aurait-elle eu de nombreuses aventures, aussi bien avec Drake que Leonardo DiCaprio ?

Serait-elle un peu méfiante avec la gent masculine ? Un récent message posté sur son compte Instagram semble le montrer :

«  Aucun de mes ex n’est marié ou dans une relation amoureuse épanouissante, donc je ne pense pas me tromper en disant que ça n’est pas moi le problème », peut-on en effet lire sur la photo.

Rihanna, l’éternelle célibataire ?

Rihanna a tout de la femme idéale : belle, riche et célèbre.


Son histoire d’amour avec Chris Brown, très médiatisée, avait connu plus de bas que de hauts. Le rappeur l’avait notamment violemment agressée en 2009, alors qu’ils se rendaient ensemble à la cérémonie des Grammy Awards.

Depuis, malgré une brève aventure avec le joueur de baseball Matt Kemp et une réputation des plus sulfureuses, Rihanna n’est pas prête : « Je suis célibataire, confiait la chanteuse sur le plateau d’Ellen DeGeneres en février dernier. Je crois que j’ai tellement de travail, que je ne peux même pas trouver le temps d’avoir une relation stable ou quoi que ce soit de sérieux, même d’envoyer un message ! »

Quel artiste ne rêverait-il pas d' être comparé à Madonna ?

Et bien figure-toi que ce n’est pas le cas de Lady Gaga !

Osez faire des parallèles entre la carrière de la Material Girl et celle de la Mother Monster hérisse tout simplement notre Lady. « Madonna et moi sommes très différentes ».


Certes les deux stars ont déjà eu des rapports tendus dans le passé .Mais Lady Gaga s'estime avant tout « une productrice » » « une auteure » À la différence de Madonna qui ne ferait que « répéter encore et encore pour faire un show. ».

Pas facile Lady Gaga !

L'hommage rendu par Lady Gaga à David Bowie aux Grammy Awards le 15 février dernier avait laissé plus d’un pantois. Lady Gaga a également mal accepté les reproches du fils de David Bowie.

Juste après sa prestation sur la scène des Grammy Awards, ce dernier avait qualifié, sur son compte Twitter, son hommage d’« ultra excité, irrationnel, typiquement le résultat d’un enthousiasme excessif et mentalement confus. » Lady Gaga, elle-même fan de David Bowie, a pris la critique de plein fouet.mais toujours aussi mauvaise perdante :

«  Je ne peux pas… C’est son père vous savez. que le père de Duncan n’était pas David Bowie mais David Jones. »

L'hommage de Lorde, rendu hommage à son père, David Bowie, le 24 février sur la scène des BRIT Awards, a eu droit à des félicitation de la part du fils Bowie.

Cependant Lady Gaga aura dans quelques mois un défi de succéder à Beyoncé, Coldplay et Bruno Mars. Les trois artistes avaient livré en février dernier un show mémorable lors de la mi-temps du dernier Super Bowl (la finale du championnat de football américain), qui célébrait alors son cinquantième anniversaire.

C'est un événement qui explose chaque année les records d’audiences téléspectateurs jusqu'à 115 millions lors du concert de la mi-temps. Lady Gaga, qui se produira l’an prochain sur la pelouse du NRG Stadium de Houston explique sa stratégie : « Le meilleur moyen de repousser les limites, c’est avec ses tripes et son talent ».

La chanteuse va se lancer bientôt dans une tournée des bars et des pubs aux Etats-Unis pour promouvoir  son nouvel album, Joanne,où elle a écrit un titre en hommage à Trayvon Martin. « Comment pourrais-je ne rien dire ? », a-t-elle ajouté.

Militante également !

"Il paraît qu'il était difficile d'écouter notre musique, mais nous sommes ici. Il semble que Cuba est en train de changer. " (Mick Jagger)

Plus de 500000 cubains ont assisté au concert géant des Rolling Stones à la Havane le 25 mars. Ce spectacle inédit des Rockeurs a été programmé trois jours après une visite historique du Président américain Obama à Cuba, dans leur tournée « América Latina Olé » . Symbole de l'ouverture du régime castriste commencée déjà depuis quelques mois ?

Voici les Rolling Stones qui commencent par Jumpin Jack Flash suivie de It's only rock and roll et des grands classiques du répertoire du groupe pendant deux heures ponctués espagnol par de cordiaux :

"Bonsoir, mes gens de Cuba", puis assez rapidement :

"Nous sommes ici, finalement ! ".

Mais le retour du rock dans le pays longtemps considéré comme satanique par les autorités ne passionne que quelques fans...

C'est que cette musique jugée jusqu' à aujourd’hui capitaliste et décadente était bannie et fortement déconseillée par le régime castriste. 

Alors Mick Jagger fait un clin d'oeil aux "Cubanos Romanticos"

(les Cubains romantiques) avec sa chanson culte Angie. 

Les couples commencent à danser des slows.

Le chanteur, accompagné de Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood et Keith Richards, enchaîne ensuite les classiques.

C'est que Cuba vibre pour la Salsa, le Son, le Reggeaton … en langue espagnole.La fracture culturelle est immense.

Alors le rocker Mick Jagger ose: «Il paraît qu'il était difficile d'écouter notre musique, mais nous sommes ici. Il semble que Cuba est en train de changer» et après une heure et demie : «Merci Cuba pour la musique que vous avez offert au monde».

C'est que Cuba est encore un autre monde !
