The Harry Styles Hit List: A Few of His Favorite Things

The Harry Styles Hit List: A Few of His Favorite Things
So what does a young superstar spend his time thinking about? Classic rock, mostly, along with the occasional movie or TV show. Harry Styles has always been a voracious scholar of pop history — the kind of guy who obsesses over John and Yoko album covers and Fleetwood Mac deep cuts. “We’re all just fans,” he says. “I’m just a music fan who happens to make some.” These are just a few of Harry’s favorite things — some influences, some inspirations, some heroes.

Cher, Tina Turner should be inducted in 2020 for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [Poll Results]

Cher, Tina Turner should be inducted in 2020 for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [Poll Results]
Cher and Tina Turner are your top choices for induction into the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Those results from over 1,000 people worldwide are from our recent poll offering you 12 female artists that have been overlooked by voters in recent years. See the full results below.

Lady rockers have had a hard time getting inducted many years, but the 2019 ceremony had both Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks finally getting in. In fact, Nicks became the first woman to be inducted twice (along with her band Fleetwood Mac) even though many men have had multiple inductions. If Turner gets the call for induction, it would be her second time as well after a selection with ex-husband Ike Turner in 1991.

And here are the results for our recent poll about overlooked bands, which was won by The Doobie Brothers. Look for a male artist poll in the near future.

Nearly 140 musicians have joined forces for Planned Parenthood’s Bans Off My Body campaign, including Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Haim, Kacey Musgraves and Carole King.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series gets a first trailer

Yesterday we brought you a poster for High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and now the first trailer has debuted for the upcoming Disney+ show during the D23 Expo, and we have it for you here…

“The 10-episode scripted series, set at the real-life East High, where the original movie was filmed, follows a group of students as they countdown to opening night of their school’s first-ever production of High School Musical. With meta references and some docu-style elements, it’s a modern take on the “classic” from 15 years ago. Show-mances blossom; friendships are tested, while new ones are made; rivalries flare; songs are sung; and lives are changed forever as these young people discover the transformative power that only high school theater can provide.”

Why ‘Lover’ Is the Ultimate Taylor Swift Album

Why ‘Lover’ Is the Ultimate Taylor Swift Album
Why is Lover so much more than just another great Taylor Swift album? Because it’s the one where she’s trying to make all the great Taylor Swift albums, at the same time. She’s closing down her twenties, which she spent making five of the decade’s best albums — Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation and now this one — all released before she reached the age when Leonard Cohen made his debut. (Here’s betting Taylor keeps writing great songs into her 80s, just as L.C. did.) So overdramatic.

Surreal ‘Slava’s Snowshow’ Plans Broadway Return For The Holidays

Slava’s Snowshow, the surreal, international theatrical presentation of clowns in winter that became a two-year Off Broadway hit in 2004 before playing a limited Broadway run four years later, will return to Broadway for a holiday season engagement.

The announcement was made today by producers David Carpenter, John Arthur Pinckard, and Hunter Arnold. Slava’s Snowshow will begin a limited engagement at Broadway’s Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Nov. 11, running through January 5 with an opening night on Nov. 13. (The long-running Beautiful: The Carole King Musical departs the Sondheim on Oct. 27.)

As described by the producers: “Each scene paints a picture: an unlikely shark swimming in a misty sea; heart-breaking goodbyes on a railway platform; an entire audience enveloped in a gigantic web; a wave of vibrant balloons bouncing off the fingertips of theatergoers; and a world-renowned roaring snowstorm of a finale that’s sure to leave audiences spellbound.”

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll: Who is the snubbed female artist most deserving of 2020 induction?

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame voters finally got it right for 2019 with inductions of both Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks. Both ladies had been snubbed for years and finally got their due at this year’s ceremony. In fact, Nicks became the first woman to be inducted twice (along with her band Fleetwood Mac) even though many men have had multiple inductions.

During their speeches, both Jackson and Nicks mentioned that voters should be selecting even more female artists for 2020 and beyond. So let’s give them some great suggestions in our new poll below, where you can vote for your favorite among 12 women singers.

And here are the results for our recent poll about overlooked bands, which was won by The Doobie Brothers. Look for a male artist poll in the near future.

The Best Maggie Rogers Songs That'll Make You Want to Leave the Light on and Dance

The Best Maggie Rogers Songs That'll Make You Want to Leave the Light on and Dance
There's a dreamy quality to any Maggie Rogers song, one that makes you want to get up and dance but also maybe cry in your room. As an NYU student, she was serendipitously discovered by Pharrell after her song "Alaska" moved him during a masterclass. Infused with natural imagery, her songs evoke the raw emotion of a Carole King or Stevie Nicks pop classic while offering the modern pleasures of a Haim bop. Though she's known for her indie vibe, it's safe to say that Rogers defies genre, blending together pop, Edm, folk, and R&b with warm, steady vocals.

After her SNL debut and the release of her album Heard It in a Past Life, the young singer has now entered the mainstream, beholding new fans every time her music plays on a TV show (most recently Love Island). From her tender original "Light On" to her beautiful cover

Maren Morris on the Highwomen, the Dixie Chicks and Her ‘Playboy’ Controversy

Maren Morris on the Highwomen, the Dixie Chicks and Her ‘Playboy’ Controversy
In a world where Lil Nas X has an unbeatable country smash, it’s hard to blame the likes of Maren Morris — who was performing in Texas honky-tonks at the age of 10 — for branching out. In the wake of 2018’s ubiquitous, super-poppy Zedd collaboration “The Middle,” Morris, 29, drifted far from the twang of her debut album on this year’s Girl, delving into R&b and pop, and even showing a hint of reggae. But she also just completed an altogether rootsier album with her new supergroup, the Highwomen (with Brandi Carlile,

‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’ Sets Broadway Closing Date

‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’ Sets Broadway Closing Date
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, one of the most popular Broadway shows in recent seasons and the rare jukebox musical as beloved by critics as by audiences, will end its nearly six-year Broadway run on October 27, producers announced tonight.

Based on the songs of its titular pop legend and her inner circle, Beautiful earned seven Tony nominations in 2014 and won a pair, including one for lead actress Jessie Mueller. The musical will close having played 2,418 regular performances and 60 previews. It’s Broadway’s second-longest-running bio-musical and the longest-running and highest-grossing show in the Stephen Sondheim Theatre’s history.

The production recouped its $13 million capitalization within nine months, but even it wasn’t immune to a generally tough summer for Broadway. In recent weeks, Beautiful has been grossing at about half, or just above half, of its $994,804 weekly potential. Although the summer has been hard on newer shows — with recent or

Will ‘Cats’ paw its way to being the 1st Broadway musical adaptation in 17 years to win Best Picture Oscar? [Watch]
You might have noticed that tune-filled movies of late seem to be in vogue ever since last year’s remake of “A Star Is Born” drew acclaim and the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” overcame critical boos and turned into a worldwide box-office sensation as well as an Oscar magnet.

Besides current releases “Rocketman,” which features Elton John hits, and “Yesterday,” which raids the Beatles songbook, there are at least 14 musical biopics in the production pipeline built around songs by Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, Boy George, Carole King, Celine Dion, Elvis Presley, rapper Gucci Mane, Helen Reddy, Christian rock star Jeremy Camp, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Leonard Bernstein, Madonna and Teddy Pendergrass.

But what about more traditional musicals, the lavish kind that were in vogue in the ’60s when 1965’s “The Sound of Music” was the equal of “Avengers: Endgame.” The time appears ripe for an adaptation

Fox News, Cspan Plan Live Coverage of Trump’s Fourth of July. Others Don’t.

  • Variety
President Donald Trump’s unorthodox July 4th event will feature a speech by the Commander-in-Chief, jet planes and even tanks. What it won’t have, most likely, is traditional wall-to-wall coverage from the nation’s news outlets.

Fox News Channel is setting aside two hours that can be used to televise President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America,” expected to take place 6:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Memorial. C-span will televise it as well. But MSNBC executives plan to monitor the event as it takes place and could decide to run clips if warranted, according to a person familiar with the matter. CNN, which did not respond to a query seeking comment, usually has personnel at the ready to interrupt pre-taped programming in case news warrants a live broadcast.

Trump’s holiday celebration would take place during an MSNBC hour usually anchored by Ari Melber and during CNN’s early-evening “Situation Room.
