• MICK JAGGER STILL ENERGIZED AND PASSIONATE ABOUT TOURING
    Rolling Stones fans can breathe a sigh of relief regarding the band staying a working touring act. Mick Jagger spoke frankly about his love of the road in a recent interview with The Telegraph, explaining, "I enjoy touring. It’s a very energizing thing. You never get bored. It’s very irresponsible because you don’t have to worry. You get to one place and you know you’re not going to stay there more than a couple of days. Good, bad or indifferent, you’re on to the next place. I get very emotionally involved with the whole thing. I’m very passionate about touring. Every time you go onstage it’s a very exiting moment because you never know what’s going to happen. It’s always different. A lot of unexpected things happen. Each show is a new event. You’re in a different place with a different audience. It’s a very exciting couple of hours and it’s a very intense relationship with the audience. . . Physicality is a big part of performing and I try to keep it going as long as I possibly can." He reveals that his parents, Joe -- a phys ed teacher, and Eva -- a hairdresser initially didn't approve of his decision to pursue music full time: "They didn’t want me to be in show business because it wasn’t much of a profession and for me the defining moment was when I decided to leave college and not just sing rock n' roll at weekends but sing it all week. I had a record out and I was very successful so I decided to leave college and that was a big moment for me." Jagger himself admits that the Stones themselves were hardly banking on a half-century career: "We didn’t think it would last very long because at that time there were very few people who had careers in pop music that had lasted. But we worked very hard at it and we were lucky that attitudes towards popular music changed and it came to be taken more seriously so, because it acquired all the nuances of an art form, you could work within it and have a long career within it, so we were lucky." Mick Jagger says that keeping a balance between being professional and being cool is a tricky fence to sit on when performing live in concert: "When you have an audience that's seen everything, then you have to work a lot harder. But if you work too hard, then it looks ridiculous, so (laughs) you have to time it right." : October 25 - Adelaide, Australia - Adelaide Oval October 29 - Perth, Australia - Perth Arena November 1 - Perth, Australia - Perth Arena November 5 - Melbourne, Australia - Rod Laver Arena November 8 - Woodend, Australia - Hanging Rock November 12 - Sydney, Australia - Allphones Arena November 15 - Pokolbin, Australia - Hope Estate Winery November 18 - Boondall, Australia - Brisbane Entertainment Centre November 22 - Auckland, New Zealand - Mt Smart Stadium AUDIO: MICK JAGGER ON KEEPING THE STONES SHOWS ENERGETICAUDIO: MICK JAGGER ON TIMING ON STAGE

  • ADRIENNE BAILON THROWS SHADES BACK AT KIM KARDASHIAN
    Adrienne Bailon has responded to The Kardashian family's shade towards her. Earlier this week, an interview that The Real co-host did with Latina Magazine was published and she talked about ex Rob Kardashian. In the interview, Bailon revealed that being with Rob was hurtful to her career. She also discussed his infidelity, saying "It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me. It always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him? Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.’ But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’" Kim clapped back on Twitter, writing, "Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is bc she is talking about a Kardashian. So sad when people try to kick my brother when he is down #FamilyForever." Khloe wrote, "FDB" -- which stands for "F*ck Dat B*tch" and told a follower that she thought she was cool with Adrienne. Rob retweeted Khloe's "FDB" tweet. ADRIENNE'S RESPONSE On Thursday (July 31st), Adrienne responded via Instagram, writing, "Fame and a Career are two different things. I’ve always had a career. I have been working hard since I was 15-years-old. Being someone’s 'girlfriend' was never what I wanted to be famous for. What makes you 'famous' isn’t always what you want to be 'labeled' as, or known for. If anyone should understand that … It should be you." She continued, "I also stated in the article that none of this would have stopped me from being in love and being in that relationship. I just would have gone about it differently. You can love someone just as much in private. We all learn from our first loves."
