Kelly Rowland & Wiz Khalifa Channel Their Inner Joni Mitchell! Get Gone HERE!

Her voice!!! It's like an angel is inside our head, gently massaging our eardrums!!

Forty-three years after Joni Mitchell gave environmentalism a theme song with Big Yellow Taxi, Kelly Rowland decided it was time to sample from greatness!

She teamed up with Wiz Khalifa on Gone and it's faaaaaaantastic!!!!

Ch-ch-check it out for yourelf (above)!

In this version, the Destiny's Child singer and X Factor host is less preoccupied with deforestation and more concerned with kickin' a bad man to the curb, so it's certainly an interesting take!!

If you remember, Janet Jackson sampled Joni's track in 1997's Got Til It's Gone, but Kelly's AH-Mazing track has a totally different vibe!!

Taylor Swift Signs On To Play Joni Mitchell!

Taylor Swift Joni Mitchell

It's official!!

Taylor Swift has signed on to play legendary folk singer Joni Mitchell in upcoming flick Girls Like Us!

We first heard Swifty wanted to be in the movie back in April. The film's producers refused to officially hand over the part until very recently.

Perhaps the success of her latest single, We're Never Ever Getting Back Together, gave her the edge!

Girls Like Us will feature a look inside the life and career of Joni Mitchell, along with fellow singers, Carly Simon and Carole King.

As of now, they haven't cast the other leading roles, but we hear Alison Pill, Olivia Thirby, Ari Graynor and Zoe Kazan will test for the role of King. And actresses,Allison Williams, Jessica Pare and Analeigh Tipton are fighting to play Simon.

This flick could have a HUGE impact on T-Swift's career. Playing a real person is always a challenge, but if done right it can be VERY rewarding awarding!

Taylor already has a Grammy, could she be after a Golden Globe and an Oscar too??

Carly Rae Jepsen Adds Pop To Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now! WATCH HERE!!

A refreshing change of pace from the girl who invaded our ears this summer with her adorable sound!

Carly Rae Jepsen is preparing for the release of her debut album KISS (Sept 18!!), and to prove she is more than just a pop sensation, the Call Me, Maybe dominator recently sang an acoustic, live rendition of the legendary Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now (above)!

While Carly's sweet and light voice lacks some of Joni's depth, emotional infusion, and pure vocal skillz, this is NOT a bad cover of the beloved classic, although it does paint the tune in a more positive, fun light than the original does.

We're diggin' it! We wanna hear MORE covers from Carly!

Perhaps she should try her hand at Death Metal? Ska? We would simply DIE if she covered Sublime's Caress Me Down… Uhhhhhhh!

Ha!

Taylor Swift…pop country superstar and…folk singer?

Looks like Taylor may be hopping in a Big Yellow Taxi, headed for the silver screen!

Reportedly, Swifty is eyeing up the role of Joni Mitchell in the film adaptation of the book, Girls Like Us by Sheila Weller!

Though Taylor has already gotten her feet wet appearing in the rom-com Valentine’s Day along with every other celeb back in 2010, this would be her FIRST time taking on a dramatic role!

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??

Sienna & Savannah Miller Show Off Their Spring Collection

wenn3008048_e.jpg wenn3008002_e.jpg wenn3008005_e.jpg wenn3008009_e.jpg

Over the weekend, Sienna Miller and her sister Savannah presented the spring collection for their line Twenty8Twelve at London Fashion Week.

The collection was inspired by Joni Mitchell's album Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter and was made for the girl on the go.

Not surprisingly, Jude Law was sitting in the front row watching his girlfriend's designs come down the runway.

When asked why he was there, he said: "I’m here because I love Sienna Miller."

Vom!

Joni Mitchell Starts Some Beef With Bob Dylan

jmbdmjb.jpg

Whoa! Where did this come from?!

The original queen of folk, Joni Mitchell - who as of late has mostly kept to herself - emerged out of whatever garden cottage in the canyon she's been hibernating in to ATTACK her male counterpart, Bob Dylan, and our beloved Madge!

She says:

"Bob is not authentic at all. He's a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception. We are like night and day, he and I.

Americans have decided to be stupid and shallow since 1980. Madonna is like Nero; she marks the turning point."

We'd tread lightly, bb, we seem to recall a departure in authenticity for you in the '80s where you traded in your guitar for some synth pop duets with Michael McDonald!

Thoughts??
