The founder of the Pussycat Dolls has denied allegations that the dance and music troupe was used as a “prostitution ring”, after former band member Kaya Jones made a series of accusations on Twitter. Jones, who was a member between 2003 to 2005, alleged that she was abused and given drugs, while others made money from the group’s fame. “My truth," she wrote. "I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring. Oh and we happened to sing and be famous. While everyone who owned us made the [money]. “How bad was it? People ask – bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, band mates and a $13m (£9.7m) record deal. We knew we were going to #1." She added that she wanted the "den mother from hell" - a reference to the group's leader who she did not name - "to confess why another one of her girl group girls committed suicide?" "Tell the public how you mentally broke us," she … [Read more...] about Former Pussycat Doll says the band was a ‘prostitution ring’: ‘We are all abused’

When the Czech harpsichordist Zuzana Růžičková, who has died aged 90, left the Nazi labour camp at Terezín in a truck bound for Auschwitz, she wrote down a passage from one of JS Bach’s English Suites “as a sort of talisman, because I didn’t know what was awaiting us”. She came to think of his music as being “above human suffering”. It gave her a force of faith that helped her survive and recover from the experience of the camps, despite having lost most of her family, and then to withstand the persecution of communism in postwar Czechoslovakia. In a performing career of more than half a century she went on to make more than 100 recordings of works from the Renaissance to the present day. In the course of doing so, she became the first performer to record Bach’s entire output for the harpsichord. Had war not intervened, Růžičková planned to go to France to study with Wanda Landowska, whose pioneering … [Read more...] about Zuzana Růžičková obituary
Dad was a produce man. He manned Smiths’ Food And Drug’s produce section, and so did his dad. If you needed someone to pick out your melons, they were your men. My earliest memory is going to the store and Dad giving me a date and then telling me I couldn’t have another. I grew up until I was nine in a small house on the very edge of Las Vegas, with just desert out back. I had four older sisters and one older brother. Mom, so that she could be with us, looked after other peoples’ kids as a job, so there were kids everywhere. She’d prepare food for 10 of us while watching through the kitchen window as we made forts in the desert. A lot of hot dogs, and peanut butter and banana sandwiches, like Elvis. I remember helping Mom make Rice Krispie treats. Melt marshmallows and butter together, pour the solution onto the Krispies and that’s heaven right there.

It is a lifetime since the Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan was dubbed “the general music director of Europe” as he piloted his private jet between engagements in Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg, Milan and London in the 1950s and 60s. That was another world, and no conductor since Karajan’s time, thank goodness, has either sought or acquired such a classical music empire. But if, in its much changed and more devolved musical landscape, Europe does have anything like a general music director today, then there’s a case for saying that the job is about to belong to Philippe Jordan. The 42-year-old Swiss, who learned his trade at the feet of his conductor father Armin Jordan in Zurich and then of Daniel Barenboim in Berlin, does not conduct much in the UK. That’s not because he is an Anglophobe – on the contrary, English was his first language at home and he has conducted at Glyndebourne and with the Philharmonia. The fact that Jordan’s name is not … [Read more...] about Philippe Jordan: the low-key maestro who’s taking French opera to new heights

Bryan Singer to direct Freddie Mercury biopic Read more There is a sweet black-and-white photograph of Farrokh Bulsara from 1946 in a pram in the garden of his Indian parents’ home in Zanzibar, then a British protectorate. When he died, 45 years later, very few of the millions mourning knew him by that name; by then he’d become Freddie Mercury, Queen frontman. A forthcoming biopic called Bohemian Rhapsody will focus on the singer’s life after he formed Queen, but it would be a shame if it ended up whitewashing Farrokh’s story. So how did Farrokh become Freddie, you ask? His parents, Jer and Bomi, were Parsees whose ancestors came from Persia. India-born Bomi went to work in Zanzibar as a registrar for the colonial government, taking his wife Jer with him. When their son was eight, they sent Farrokh to a British boarding school near their home city of Bombay. After leaving school, their son was known by his nickname, Freddie. When Zanzibar became … [Read more...] about Bohemian Rhapsody: will the Freddie Mercury biopic be a whitewash?

STEVIE Wonder is one of music history’s greats – producing hit after hit that’s helped the world get down for five decades. The child prodigy made R’n’B mainstream after coming to prominence through the Motown label. Here’s what we know about him… Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Wonder, real name Stevland Hardaway Morris, was born in Saginaw, Michigan on May 13, 1950, making him 67. He was the third of six children, and his parents – songwriter Lula Mae Hardaway and Calvin Judkins – divorced when he was four. He became blind shortly after birth due to the fact he was six weeks premature and vulnerable to retinopathy of prematurity while in his oxygen-rich incubator. The rapid development of his eye blood vessels caused his retinas to detach, leading him to lose his sight. Stevie began making music by playing instruments, including piano, drums and harmonica, from a young age – and formed a musical duo with … [Read more...] about How old is Stevie Wonder, what are his biggest songs, is he blind, what’s his net worth and what’s he said about George Michael?
