Repost Worthy: ItsNotYouItsMe Album Spin - Nina Perrson

Front woman of Swedish rock band The Cardigans, Nina Persson has released her debut solo album Animal Heart . An album that had us wondering what life change initiated the lyrics and her toned down look from the blonde Debbie Harry-esque tart we knew her as.  In an interview with the Perssons opens up about her life from the birth of her son in 2010 and her health issues dealing with cancer that led her to think she should start a career in medicine rather then music.

“I thought about it a lot, but it’s seven years for med school. Maybe it was a kind of midlife crisis. One day I thought, fine, I love music, I’m good at it, I just need to find a way to do it that is not so uncomfortable.

Nina on why she had doubts about going solo.

I never felt like I wanted to be solo,” she admits. “I grew up romanticising bands. To have your own name as a logo feels very plain, like something you see on your phone bill.” She shrugs. “Maybe in other countries my name is exotic. But where I’m from, there are a lot of Nina's.

Sometimes in life the best remedy is music and with Nina's solo effort it works. We present below our pick of stand out tracks from Animal Heart an album that has us rediscovering the brunette beyond the peroxide.

Pan The Movie

Now this looks visually exciting! Coming next year is the new story of Peter Pan and this remake looks like something you just have to see on the big screen and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard had us doing a second look!

Check out the new Teaser Trailer below

From Warner Bros. Pictures comes, “Pan,” a live-action Peter Pan feature directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”).

Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, the action adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny—to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.

The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (“The Dictator”) as Smee; and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter.

Rounding out the cast are Taejoo Na (“The Kick”) as Kwahu; Nonso Anozie (“Son of God,” “Atonement”) as Bishop; Kathy Burke (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) as Mother Barnabas; Kurt Egyiawan (“Skyfall”) as Murray; Lewis MacDougall (UK TV’s “In the Name of the Children”) as Nibs; newcomer Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling; Jack Charles (“Mystery Road”) as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father; and Amanda Seyfried (“Les Misérables”) as Mary.

Wright directs “Pan” from a screenplay written by Jason Fuchs. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Paul Webster are producing, with Tim Lewis serving as executive producer.

Filmed at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, “Pan,” is set for a worldwide release in 3D and 2D in select theatres and IMAX® on July 17, 2015.

Have A Very Merry Birthday Miss Queen Of Rock n Roll, Tina Turner!!!

It was hard to find the right words to begin to pay homage to the greatest living female rock n roll artist of all-time. But in honor of the Queen of Rock n Roll who turns 73 today!, we're gonna attempt to take a look back at Tina's historical musical and style legacy.

Her voice is raw, it has a healthy power-punch that has not only with-stood the test of time but has created a unqiue genre in musique itself.

As Tina famously put it herself, she can give a concert-goer a "nice and easy" experience or they can have it "nice and rough!" Some consider her a feminist model. Which to me makes perfect sense because not only is she a champion for all women including my very own grandmother,(which thanks to her i listened to my first recording of Tina's around the age of 3) but she stands for equal rights. Who happens to look smoldering gorgeous while doing so. She talks demurely but has a fighter-like performance when simply singing. Her vocal ability is on a whole nother realm.

Sure, we have Miss Billie Holiday. We also have Janis Joplin, Cher, Joan Jett, to Madonna to the current strings of obvious admirers from Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and Karen-O. Generations before and generations to come will follow suit. Whatever she chooses to sing next, i'll be waiting with open ears.

Tina Turner may have been born "Anna Mae Bullock" in November 26 of 1939 but after a 55 year career, that includes over millions of electrifying performances and  multiple mind-blowing recordings...she is and will forever be TINA TUNER! Now, allow the musique to take control and speak for itself...!

Tina Turner "Work Out Fine" medley

Tina Turner performing the tunes "I Wanna Take you Higher", "Come Together" and "Proud Mary" live at the Playboy After Dark show in 1969. Just another smokin performance from the Queen.

She speaks! In a very rare interview, Tina along with whats his name answered questions from the Soul Train Gang. Tina talks about how she and "super regular"(because that's what were worthless individuals that roam this planet) met. Episode 30 recorded in 1972.

Peforming "River Deep Mountain High".
