Ke$ha Sued by Former Management
Ke$ha and her producer Dr. Luke are both being sued by DAS Communications, a company that used to manage the pop singer. The company insists that Dr. Luke pressured Ke$ha to sever ties with the company. DAS is seeking $14 million from Ke$ha and $12 million from Dr. Luke in damages. Ke$ha has already filed a counter-suit against the company. [EW.com]

Meat Loaf to Rock in Small Club
Meat Loaf has announced a special concert at Manhattan's Irving Plaza on February 23rd. This will be the singer's first small club show in the city since 1977. Since Meat Loaf is best known for doing pretty much everything with over-the-top grandeur, it should be pretty interesting to see what he does on a smaller stage: It could very well be the regular Meat Loaf extravaganza in close quarters.  [Village Voice]

Song Stories


The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
