RPatz Wants To Play Jeff Buckley!

robert-pattinson-wants-to-play-the-part-of-jeff-buckley-in-biopic

We have to admit - he looks the part better than any of the other contenders!

Robert Pattinson is apparently ready to showcase his vocal stylingz in a much bigger way than ever before - as he's approached producers of a potential Jeff Buckley biopic in hopes to secure the role of the late folk singer!

Producer Michelle Sy confirms:

"I've met actors who are keen on the part and Robert was one…The actor must be able to play music and sing, or at least make it believable he can do that."

And despite competition from James Franco and James Marsden for the role, even Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, thinks our sparkly vamp is the perfect potential to play her son!

She reveals:

"Robert is a fine young actor. I'm flattered he's been linked to the project. When the times comes we'll give everybody an opportunity to be seen and heard."

He certainly has some tough competition, but this part actually does seem right up his alley!

We just hope that whomever ends up winning the part can do Buckley justice!

What do U think?? Should RPatz play Jeff Buckley??

Mandy Moore Talks More About Her New Album!

Filed under: Music MinuteMandy Moore

mandy-moore-talks-more-about-her-new-album

We LOVE that she's continuing to take her sound in this direction!

Mandy Moore recently opened up about her still-untitled upcoming album, but revealed that she's currently being influenced a lot by guitar-driven folk music from the '70s.

She explains:

"I'm stuck in the '70s. I think it'll always have that kind of influence. Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, Harry Nilsson, McCartney - that's the sort of stuff I'm really inspired and influenced by. No, it's still too early [for a title]. That always comes at the end for me. I can't go into having a collection of songs and already have a name for it. Gosh, that's [Factory-line pop] where I started as a kid when you don't have any creative input or input at all. That's what ends up happening. It's nice to have the control to make choices now. I'm not necessarily sure what it will sound like but I definitely have enough to write about."

Excellent, bb! That's where your best material comes from!

Your style has come such a long way, and we think that you've really found what works for you! Especially because you rarely hear voices like hers in that genre of music!

We're so excited to hear what you're working on!

Thoughts??

Mandy Wants To Work With Hubby On New Album!

Filed under: Music MinuteMandy Moore

Excellent!

Mandy Moore recently revealed that she is starting to think about her next record, and, as was the case with her previous work, Amanda Leigh, she would once again like her husband, Ryan Adams, to collaborate with her on some new material!

She explains:

"I don't know about a duet. But I would love to work with him on the next record. I'm sure he'll be involved in some way. We work well together. I'm listening to McCartney right now and a lot of Gram Parsons. My hubby, too. It's hard to ignore that influence in the house."

Nice!

We LOVE how she is constantly trying to develop her sound, and try out new things! She's really taken what started as a pretty paint-by-numbers pop career and made it her own, and we really respect her for that!

Keep up the good work, bb! We're looking forward to what you've got in store for our ears!

Thoughts??

Joan Baez Falls From Tree House, Injured!

Filed under: Music MinuteInjury

Joan Baez Falls From Tree House

Folksinging legend Joan Baez took a tumble off of a tree house built behind her house on Wednesday. She was quickly taken to the emergency room where they determined that she had only sustained minor injuries.

A spokeswoman said Baez was "resting comfortably" Thursday.

"I sleep in a tree all summer long," said Baez "I like to see the sky and the stars. I climb up on a ladder, with ropes and things. The birds are right there in the morning. Sometimes they're flying so close to my head I can feel the wind. Those things are heaven to me."

We hope her injuries don’t last long. That birds will be lonely without her!
