Former Oasis Frontman Noel Gallagher Frank About His Distaste for Adele

Noel-GallagherNoel Gallagher is not exactly known for his tact, so when he expressed his personal opinion of Adele’s music—that he doesn’t like it—it should not come as a surprise to anyone; or rather, the specific words he used should not come as much of a surprise at all.

Indeed, the former Oasis frontman is one of the few who will forgo the Adele bandwagon now that her third studio album has propelled the 27-year-old Brit beyond the record industry stratosphere.

When asked about it, Gallagher replied: “Lately, the one I’ve been asked about is Adele. If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f–king tell them. Not because I have any sort of agenda or because I’m trying to whip up any kind of hysteria.”

Ok, so he is entitled to his opinion; after all he has been around the business for a very long time. But does he have anything to about her album or her artistry at all? I mean, she is a Grammy-winning recording artist, after all.

Honestly, he replies, “I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f–king grannies.”

Apparently it is as hard as for Gallagher to get into her music as it is for her to write it. Indeed, the new mum has been passing one life milestone after another—mostly in regards to her new son, Angelo with long fiancé Simon Konecki—which complicates matters when trying to sit down and pen a song.
In fact, Adele says, “I found it impossible, for a while. I didn’t know what I wanted to write about…What’s wrong is I wasn’t sad.”
Maybe her confusion was just the thing she needed to keep her fans happy as this next album is not leaving the charts any time soon.

Sylvester Stallone Finally Gets Another Golden Globe Nomination, For Creed

sylvester-stalloneHe may be one of the most memorable faces—and voices—in Hollywood but while his resume is filled with one iconic role after another Sylvester Stallone has not been “critically” recognized that often for his talent. So when Stallone received his Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe nomination, on Thursday, for his role in Creed, it was a bit of a shock to him.

It was only quite an incredible honor. You see, the only other time Sylvester Stallone was nominated for a Golden Globe (as well as an Oscar) was for his lead role in the film he wrote, Rocky.

Released in 1976, Rocky tells the story of an underdog plucked from obscurity to defy the odds and become a champion. Perhaps inspired by the real life story of Chuck Wepner, the tale of Rocky mirrors that of Stallone’s own climb to the top of the industry.

Born with a defect that caused his speech impediment, Sylvester Stallone did not have it easy as an actor trying to break big into the movie industry. But at 30-years old he did not let anything deter him and, after selling everything he owned—including his dog—the man lived on passion alone.

This passion finally paid off in the form of “Rocky,” one of the most successful Best Picture Winners of all time. The film also won for Best Director and Best Editing; Stallone was nominated for Best Actor (and Best Original Screenplay).

It has taken 39 years for Stallone to release 5 more Rocky films. While none were as critically received as the first, all have been widely successful.

Creed is the first “spin-off” film but, more importantly, is the first to find Stallone again nominated for a much deserved award, which recognizes not only his tremendous work in this film, but perhaps paying homage, a bit, to his entire body of work.

Adele’s “25” Top Album for 2015 In Just A Few Weeks

adele

In 2011, Adele’s icon-status-cementing album 21 sold 11.2 million copies, according to Nielsen Music, whopping sales figures that simply don’t exist in the music industry anymore.

To no surprise, Adele’s “25” is the best-selling album on iTunes for 2015. The album was released on Nov. 20, and marks Adele’s first album in almost five years

“It’s off to a great start, considering that it’s a five-minute ballad and five-minute ballads are not what pop radio does these days,” says Sean Ross, author of the Ross On Radio newsletter.

Apple announced Wednesday that Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” was the year’s biggest single, while Adele’s “Hello” is sixth on the songs list.

Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking out Loud,” Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again,” Maroon 5’s “Sugar” and “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon ranked second through fifth, respectively.

Coincidently, “Uptown Funk” and “Thinking out Loud” earned Grammy nominations for record of the year on Monday, while “Thinking out Loud” and “See You Again” will compete for song of the year.

Drake’s “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” was second behind “25” on the albums list. Drake’s album with fellow rapper-singer Future, “What a Time to Be Alive,” ranked sixth.

Taylor Swift’s “1989,” the “Fifth Shades of Grey” soundtrack and Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” rounded out the Top 5.

The Weeknd earned three songs in the Top 20 with “Earned It” (No.9), “Can’t Feel My Face” (No.11) and “The Hills” (No.15). Swift’s “Blank Space” and “Style” came in at Nos. 18 and 20, respectively.
