Ad-Rock to Rock Ya with…an Off Broadway Play?

Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock aka Adam Horovitz is set to score an off Broadway play in New York later this month (via NME). No word on whether all of the lines will end with 3 white rappers all saying the same word in unison.

“Gloucester Blue is a black comedy about a man who returns home after a long absence and encounters all manner of infidelities and murders.” Produced by the Barefoot Theatre Company, the performances will take place from November 16 – December 3 at the Cherry Lane Theater.”

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi Is Releasing an Album?

Do you know about Silvio Berlusconi? He is quite the unique fellow. Okay, so he is the Italian Prime Minister, which is sort of cool. He has been Prime Minister 3 different times. He has a net worth of like $8 billion. He owns the Italian powerhouse football club AC Milan. Recently, there were a series of sex scandals surrounding the 75 year old. And so on and so forth. But now, Silvio Berlusconi is releasing an album! But sadly, the album (his fourth!) has been pushed back to November 22 (via NME).

“Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has apparently delayed the release of his new album, ‘True Love’, because of his country’s financial troubles and his own trial which sees him accused of paying for sex with an alleged underage prostitute.”

One of the other musicians on the album, Angelo Valsiglio, said in an interview with Italian music magazine Viva Verdi that the record is a “really elegant and refined production with Brazilian hints”.

Coldplay – your perch at the top of Billboard is no longer safe.
