Prince returned to acting, briefly, for a guest appearance on ‘New Girl‘ in February. The post Super Bowl episode featured The Purple One giving relationship and style advice to Jess at his party.

Later, Jess hops on stage with him and his band 3rdEyeGirl to perform “FALLINLOVE2NITE,” which she strangely knew all the words to. But Prince is magic, of course.

 

 

I loved hearing this song on the show and the studio version sounds just as good. No word yet on if it will be included on the upcoming album PLECTRUMELECTRUM which doesn’t have an official release date just yet. If this is a taste of what Prince & Co. are offering up with his first new album in five years, then we’re in for a funky treat.

Magazine Round-Up! The August 2013 Issues

Despite who one magazine chose to put on their latest covers, the August issues were pretty good this year, and a great pre-cursor to the big September issues.

The biggest of them all is usually Vogue, who has Claire Danes as their coverstar for August. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, she is joined by her ‘Homeland’ co-star Damien Lewis in a slick, spy themed editorial. This is the first time that Danes have covered the mag since 1998.

Supermodel Kate Moss lands the cover of Allure, shot by Mario Testino. In the mag Moss talks about the anorexia rumors that plagued her during the start of her career, saying “The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s ridiculous. I know I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged….’ But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody’s illness. I wasn’t anorexic.” On a lighter note, she reveals that her 10-year old daughter Lila loves the movie ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ and regularly quotes Emily Blunt‘s assistant character, “Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office. Can you hold? Patrick Demarchelier on the line!‘”

Though his hit AMC drama will be coming to an end after it’s 6th season, which starts on August 11, Cranston will be moving on to even bigger things, like a remake of ‘Godzilla’ set to be released next year.

Daft Punk Magazine Cover Round-Up!

 

Daft Punk‘s “Random Access Memories” was OFFICIALLY released on Tuesday, though it’s been available to stream for a week now. so you might have copped a leak. Still, it’s a great and long overdue effort from the robot duo. It’s already shot up to #1 on iTunes, just hours after going on sale. So it’s safe to say they are having a pretty great May and are on the cover of almost everything at the moment.

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter give a pretty revealing interview to Jonah Weiner for the June 6th issue of Rolling Stone where they their influences, working on RAM, the evolution of those helmets and meeting as kids. Bangalter describes the duo’s origins.

I met Guy-Man in eighth grade,” he says. “At the end of the year we took a class trip to Pompeii, and in the car ride we began making up songs. When we got back, we recorded them with a little Casio keyboard.” 

You can read the whole interview here.

The pair last graced the cover of Dazed & Confused back in 2010, but return along with collaborator Giorgio Moroder where they discuss how RAM‘s “Giorgio By Moroder” came about, and why we shouldn’t expect a big tour.

I get everybody coming up to me saying, ‘Are you touring? Are you touring?’ And I’m like, ‘Guys, the album isn’t even out yet. What, do you want the dessert before the starter?’”

Read the rest of the interview and check out the pictures by Hedi Slimane here.

For NME, “We don’t have egos. We have superpowers.” I believer it, they’d have to to turn down working with David Bowie.
