When you're Aretha Franklin, you never have to hold back what you think!

And she doesn't!

The singer sat down with the Wall Street Journal to talk about her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, and during the 10 minute interview, she was asked what she thought about singers Adele, Alicia Keys, and Whitney Houston, and she had complimentary things to say.

But ask her about Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, there was little R-E-S-P-E-C-T on a musical level!

It's possible that Aretha isn't a big fan of the ladies' music, but we didn't know she felt this un-strongly about them!

Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, & Jennifer Hudson To Sing On The Finding Neverland Broadway Album! Does This Mean They'll All Be In The Show?!

Sorry guys, don't hold your breath on this one!

It's typical for Broadway performers to be featured on the soundtrack of the show they're starring in, but Harvey Weinstein is taking a different approach with his new Broadway show!

After getting a sneak peek of Finding Neverland from Jennifer Hudson's breathtaking performance at the Tony Awards on Sunday evening, the Hollywood big shot revealed he's planning on releasing a concept album shortly after the show debuts on Broadway!

But unfortunately it isn't featuring the cast members of the show!

Harvey explained that Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys are probably going to be involved in the concept album for the Broadway musical with JHud, but the three will not be appearing on the Great White Way at all.

Such a bummer, we'd totally be down to see Swifty hold her own on Broadway!

If you missed out on JHud's stellar performance, take a look at it (below)! It's definitely a look of what's to come on this concept album!

Your Reaction?

Alicia Keys Slings…Uh, Sings It's On Again In New Music Video For Amazing Spider-Man 2!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAlicia KeysComic BooksKendrick Lamar

Your Reaction?

The music video for It's On Again just hit the web, and we hope it gets stuck forever!

Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar are both fantastic in this song that will be in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man sequel, and this video has some pretty great (albeit all too brief) snippets from the film, plus Manhattan is turned into a nightclub-esque light show, so there's that visual feast for you to take in!

The music video even has a cameo by Pharrell, who produced the song! He's far less teary eyed than his Oprah interview, but he's still oh, so great!

So get excited for the return of Spidey and ch-ch-check out the music video (above)!!!
