Pallenberg was best known for roles in '60s classics, including Barbarella and Candy, as well as Performance, the 1970 crime drama starring Mick Jagger. The icon's offscreen paramours included two Rolling Stones: She became involved with Stones founder Brian Jones before his death in 1969, and later romanced Richards from 1967 to 1980.
"I like a high-spirited woman. And with Anita, you knew you were taking on a valkyrie -- she who decides who dies in battle," Richards wrote in his 2010 autobiography, Life. He also discussed their shared heroin addiction and penchant for living on the edge. The Stones songs 'Angie" and 'You Got the Silver" were written about Pallenberg. Read morehere.
"Writer In The Dark," is a particularly emotional song which features the lyrics, "Stood on my chest and kept me down / Hated hearing my name on the lips of a crowd' Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark."
Lorde discussed the song, telling NME, "I think that when you do this, you have to find a way to live with yourself because it's not making no one feel anything. A handful of people will listen to this album and have it sort of get them [in the gut]."
"But it was important for me to say," she went on. "And I don't think that song is apologizing for it. It's more like, what did you think was going to happen? I was doing this before I met you and I'll be doing this after you're gone' I felt quite empowered." Read morehere.

'Ain't no beef, man," Gibbs says during the interview. 'It's gotta be beef when there's two real muthaf-z in the equation. When there's one muthaf-, it's just like pshh. P- a n-. I'll whoop yo a, n-. F with me. F Jeezy. B a n-."
Sounds like a beef to us. In 2015, Gibbs said reports of a feud were overstated. "I just felt that I wasn't getting the respect that I needed in that situation. So, I just did it on my own. That's all. It wasn't--I think that it got a little blown out of proportion. On my part and his part." Read morehere.

During a stop at 92.3 AMP Radio's studio in his hometown of New York City, he detailed the impact the project has had on himself and all those involved. The visual for the track was filmed on location in Uganda after French Montana was inspired by a dance routine video posted online featuring local troupe Triplets Ghetto Kids getting down to the single.
"Definitely with the video, I felt like there's a lot of gaps happening in the world," French Montana told AMP Radio's DJ Toro, "and I'm trying to build bridges as far as going somewhere where there's real talent and showcasing it to the world on my platform."
"It just touched me in such a way when I landed and went there, and drove three hours to find out they only had two [hospital] rooms for 300,000 people and there was just one ambulance -- and they usually have 40 babies a month. So we just built 10 room floors and five floors, they're almost done. So, they're about to have 50 rooms, 200 mothers just signed in just this week alone."
"I could have done it anywhere," he continued. Read morehere.

He also tweeted, "Legit happiest day of my life." But is he referring to his latest single, his relationship or the new tattoo? There's nothing like a new tattoo. See the posthere.
The band announced the record earlier this year and promised a personal release. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), the record recalls the band's early beginnings with comparisons to the breakthrough album The Foundation.
"We decided to write the most personal record we'd ever written, about the things that matter the most to us, the struggles and the celebrations of life and our relationships with our families. That's where this began," frontman Zac Brown previously told USA Today.
This distinct direction can be heard on the album's lead single, "My Old Man," where Brown sings of hoping to bestow the lessons he's learned from his father onto his son.
"Family Table," meanwhile, showcases the moments captured together with loved ones around the dinner table. Another track, the poignant '2 Places at 1 Time," tells the tale of the often difficult task of juggling life on the road with spending quality time with one's family. Read morehere.

"The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful," Pinkett wrote. "To Kat and Demetrius this is no fault of yours. Thank for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles.
