Has Kylie Minogue Called Her Music Career QUITS?!

kylie-minogue-plans-to-focus-on-acting-instead-of-music-manager-split

NO! NO! NO!

We can't deny that she hasn't given her music career 110% over the course of her 25 years as pop ICON, but the idea that she's decided that she's done all that she can in that medium is simply DEVASTATING!

However, reports have surfaced that Kylie Minogue has decided to give up singing ENTIRELY to focus on acting…and has even split from the man who help jumpstart her into show-business at 19, Terry Blamey!

Insiders claim that the 44-year-old made the difficult decision after tensions escalated between her father and long-term manager due to her label, Parlophone, being sold to Universal, and she felt like going out on a high note!

As they explain:

Starbucks Improving Their Pastry Offerings!

Filed under: Etc.Business BlitzFood

Starbucks Bakery

So, how does Starbucks improve their pasty offerings?

Hire a better baker for their locations? Or a baker at all??

Nope! They drop $100 million in cash to buy an entire small bakery chain.

It's true: baked goods and pastries from La Boulange will start replacing its current lineup early next year.

There are also plans to make the San Francisco-area bakery into a national presence in the years ahead — so look out for twice as many places to inundate your everyday lives!

Ha!

Interestingly enough, a third of the purchases in its U.S. locations now include a food item. So this is probably a good move on their part!

Does this mean they'll be going after Panera now??

Dolce & Gabbana Consider Closing D&G

dolce-and-gabbana-may-merge-dg-with-signature-line.jpg

What?

Dolce & Gabbana may close their D&G label, but not completely.

WWD reports the designing duo may merge the younger D&G with their signature line, which is surprising since it pulls in $531 million on its own.

Many retailers commented on the move, and the reactions are mixed.

Armando Branchini of Milan-based consulting firm InterCorporate said merging the two would be a mistake. He explains:

"They need to cultivate multiple consumer targets and different price points, and to scratch the D&G brand is a bold decision. In light of its awareness in new markets, especially Asia, it could be a mistake."

While another retailer completely disagreed:

"The two lines sort of cannibalized each other. There was some confusion surrounding them, and the D&G pricing was too close to that of Dolce & Gabbana."

Personally, we like the lines separate.

What do U think of the merge? Yay or nay???

GaGa Talks More About Born This Way!

Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

lady-gaga-talks-more-about-new-album-born-this-way

We are seriously DYING with anticipation!

Lady GaGa once again opened up about her new album, Born This Way, and is calling it her "most innovative" yet!

She explains:

"The album is a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats. It's finished and all, it's just fine-tuning everything. It's kind of like the post-operative stage of the album. I've already done the full heart surgery. I'm just sewing myself back up again. I think that lyrically this album is more poetic. It's really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they're funneling so much into me. So I wrote it for them. Born This Way is all about my little monsters and me, mother monster."

Metal in there, too, bb?!

If anyone can merge those different sounds together in a successful way, it's YOU. We anticipate greatness!
