Sam Smith lent his gorgeous pipes to Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" in a recording session with SiriusXM radio this week and the results were predictably magical.

Said Smith told People he has a thing for female divas: "I love legends like Whitney Houston. I love female voices and female divas. I find Amy Winehouse so iconic. Everything about her, just the way she looks."

Weekend Movie: Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys'

Erich Bergen, John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, and Michael Lomenda star in "Jersey Boys" 

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 


‘I’m looking for sky blue and you’re giving me brown,’ a fey producer sighs when the Four Seasons are in the recording booth. They’re just going through the motions rather than livening up their material. He could just have easily been dissing JERSEY BOYS itself, Clint Eastwood’s needlessly dull adaptation of the Broadway smash. In truth the band’s performance in this scene isn’t appreciably worse than their performances elsewhere in the movie. If you can’t readily spot differences in inspiration and creative fire from one performance to the next, maybe there’s none to be found?

“Brown” isn’t quite the color of it, though. Clint Eastwood’s aesthetic favors underlit rooms, heavy blacks and washed out color. You’d think that aesthetic would change for a splashy musical but you’d be wrong. I mean, why shouldn’t a musical about a famous band with a gift for hooky pop gems look as depressing / dead-end as a drama about desperate boxers or a war film about an island massacre?

Boy George, Rufus Wainwright, David Byrne And Others Sing 'Summer Nights' From 'Grease': VIDEO

Grease

A terrific combination of famous male singers joined forces at the "If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway" concert last weekend, serenading the audience with a wonderful rendition of the "Grease" classic "Summer Nights."

John Travolta and Olivia Newton John were not present, but Boy George, Rufus Wainwright, David Byrne, Josh Groban, Steven Page, Brennan Hall, and Ezra Koenig handled the material just fine (including some superb falsetto work). I only wish Stockard Channing had made an appearance...

Morrissey Cheers the Death of a Bullfighter in New Single: VIDEO

Morrissey-World-Peace-Is-None-Of-Your-Business-608x545

Following his May 19th spoken word promo for The Bullfighter Dies, Morrissey has released the full studio version.

Taken from his 10th studio album World Peace Is None Of Your Business, the track opens with a sad trumpet lament and details a world in which everyone cheers when the matador is gorged to death by the bull.

As we've come to expect from Morrissey, The Bullfighter Dies doesn't break any new ground but it's quirky enough to stand out and does what Morrissey does best - sparkling indie pop with a serious subject matter and clever lyrics.
