Mike Tyson Talks About His Cameo On Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” CD

Mike Tyson & Madonna

Mike Tyson is set to appear on Madonna's "Rebel Heart" and he calls it "intense and crazy" when talking about the cameo.

Tyson appears with Chance The Rapper on the new Madonna song "Iconic".

"Madonna calls you and tells you to come somewhere, you go," Tyson says. "I didn't know what the hell I was going there for. I'm just there having a good time and hanging out with Madonna. She has her producer there and I go into the studio and I didn't know if she wanted me to talk or rap. I just go in there and start talking. I'm talking about my life and things that I have endured. I'm saying some really crazy stuff. It was really intense."

Mike tells Rolling Stone that he ad-libbed and did the song in one take.

"When I did it, I think about being some guy like [Benito] Mussolini and they're really arrogant, but you try to come from a positive perspective and be uplifting. You watch Mussolini on television — even though we don't understand what he's saying — he is so mesmerizing. I look at myself in that way.

"I know people may say 'this guy's a fascist' and all this stuff, but man, you can take positivity from watching him," added Tyson. "No wonder why Hitler was attracted to him. This guy's a hypnotic figure. There's so much pride behind what he's saying. I'm not even Italian and I feel the pride he's projecting. He had that street swag; he was doing this stuff with his hands and moving his head before it was even hip-hop."

Diagnosis: Comparing himself to Mussolini? Hanging out with Madonna....sure starts to rub off on you in weird ways it always seems.

Rihanna Teams Up With Kanye & Paul McCartney For “FourFiveSeconds” Listen Now!

rihanna-fourfiveseconds

Rihanna has released a new song entitled "FourFiveSeconds" featuring Kanye West & Paul McCartney. It was released late Saturday night with no fanfare although Kanye did tease it at an iheartradio conference Thursday.

You can purchase the song HERE.

Although the track features 3 musical heavyweights the song....is underwhelming. This isn't just a demo right? Nope. It's a full song. It is cool they are all working together but what happened when you did collaborations and it blew you away? Not just for the sake of hey "What people think if we recorded something together? Not something good but just recording together?"

I know from checking out social media I am in the minority here but I am just not digging it.-DocFB

Diagnosis: There is a lot of good music out there right now. I just wish the song was about "FourFiveSeconds" as I want my time back from listening to it.

"Love Me Like You Do" is easily becoming one of Ellie Goulding's biggest hits and it being the lead single from the "Fifty Shades Of Grey" helped it even more. Having an even hotter video? Straight fire.

The video incorporates some never before seen clips from "Shades" mixed with Ellie and her object of affection/dancing partner. Hotness!-DocFB

Diagnosis: If your "Valentine" makes you see this movie Valentine's weekend, I believe you should be able to "Tie Her Up, Tie Her Down" ala Antonio Banderas style afterwards!!!!

OK Go Release “You’re A F-cking Nerd And No One Likes You” From Hot Tub Time Machine 2; Listen Now!

OK Go Hot Tub Time Machine Part 2

OK Go has released "You're A F-cking Nerd And No One Likes You" from the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 soundtrack. This is a Sinatra cover right?

Interesting the first 15 seconds of the beat are of the wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin's entrance music, at least to me. Not so sure about this song but with OK Go fighting so many battles for other artists over the years, I can let this one slide. They are better than this though.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Makes me think Hot Tub 2 is not even going to be half way as decent as 1 was, John Cusak or not. Yes, I know this is Stu's line in the movie but.....leave this stuff to The Offspring to do.

Mysterious Allie X Releases Cover For COLLXTION I; Video For “Catch”

Allie X Album Cover

The enigmatic artist Allie X has announced details of her much anticipated debut release. CollXtion I will arrive April 7, 2015, just over a year after Allie X first appeared online.

"I am very pleased to announce CollXtion I, and hopefully answer some questions you and I both have. As you collect the pieces of CollXtion I, I hope you will feel comfortable to adopt X into your own life."

CollXtion I is a full multimedia Xperience centered around seven songs. It is the first in a series of CollXtions to be issued in the coming months.  CollXtion I will allow participants to gather songs, videos, digital installations, and other media that begin to fashion the world of a protagonist known as "X."  Designed as both a multimedia, narrative and collaborative experience, CollXtion I will be accompanied by a variety of features, including X's notorious spinning GIFs, some of the raw components used by X to create her striking work such as song stems and photo layers, and a comic which will reveal the first chapter in the Story of X. Items will be released gradually to allow participants to "collect" the ever-growing CollXtion. Fans are encouraged to become participants in X's world by using these elements to make their own "Xart," which will then be featured in X's "Xhibit" digital gallery HERE.-DocFB

Diagnosis: The Toronto-born X has developed a distinctive amalgam of electro,  detuned, dreampop, all built around her provocative songcraft and wholly original persona. Now based in Los Angeles, X first unleashed "CATCH" upon an unsuspecting SoundCloud in early 2014 and almost immediately found a fervent online fan following. Among their numbers was Katy Perry, who described herself as "obsessed" with the track in a tweet to her 51+ million Twitter followers.

We have featured Priory a couple of times over the past few months since their debut and first tv appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Priory's Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears met at a flophouse in Portland, sold everything they had (including their own blood), and built a studio in a cement factory to make a record they felt represented everything they were capable of.
