Drake has built up a pretty good brand in his label and merchandise outfit, OVO (October’s Very Own). OVO have announced they’ve made a deal with Warner Bros. (via Pitchfork).

First Acts Announced at Teenage Cancer Trust Benefit
I was lucky enough to attend one of the wonderful Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at the Royal Albert Hall in London this year. Noel Gallagher is curating the 2013 event, and has booked Kasabian for March 22, as well as Russell Brand and Noel Fielding and other guests for a night of comedy on March 20 (via NME). You mean Carrot Top isn’t available?!
Kasabian have said “The work that Teenage Cancer Trust carry out is vital and invaluable. We are honoured to have been invited back for the third time to perform and support such a worthy cause.”
Asthon Kutcher’s jOBS Documentary to Air at Sundance Film Festival
Asthon Kutcher gets a lot of shit from people. Will his role as Steve Jobs in the biopic jOBS change people’s minds? Probably not. As an aside, I HATE the nod to the iPod in the lettering convention. The film covers 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life, in a hopefully time jumping, Memento-esque film. But in reality, it will focus on his ‘formative’ years. Anyway, it has been announced that the film will air at the final night of the Sundance Film Festival (via Tech Crunch). Are Oscars or Razzies in store?
