Makes StatementSingle Release

Coldplay release the audio for Adventure of a Lifetime, from their album, A Head Full of Dreams. The band says they have collaborated with Tove Lo, Noel Gallagher and Beyonce on the album, which will contain 12 songs, including a hidden track, X Marks The Spot. Parlophone:

Revitalized, they’ve made an album that’s bursting with energy, colour and big, life-affirming moments such as the deliciously ebullient first single Adventure of a Lifetime and the rocket-powered Hymn for the Weekend. Coldplay has never enjoyed making a record more than this one. Nor have they been happier with the results.

Solange statement

Makes Statement

Beyonce and Jay-Z release a statement about the elevator attack.

As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.

While I am definitely conscious of all the different types of people who listen to my music, I really set out to make the most personal, honest, and best album I could make. I needed to free myself from the pressures and expectations of what I thought I should say or be, and just speak from the heart. Being that I am a woman in a male-dominated society, the feminist mentality rang true to me and became a way to personalize that struggle.

Williams disses Beyonce voice


Williams disses Beyonce during an episode of Hot Topics by making fun of how Beyonce talks.

I am a Beyonce fan. I’m gonna watch her upcoming documentary because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyonce can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education.
