Former Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Sara Cox criticised some of the station’s music choices, including the rapper Pitbull. Cox, who now presents on Radio 2, said: “Someone like Pitbull on Radio 1 makes my soul weep with the way he sings about women. I just couldn’t bear playing that. There will always be the odd song that isn’t for me.”
Ahead of the release of his new solo album ‘Lazaretto’, Jack White revealed that he and former White Stripes bandmate Meg White “almost never” speak anymore. “I don’t think anyone talks to Meg,” he said. “She’s always been a hermit. When we lived in Detroit, I’d have to drive over to her house if I wanted to talk to her, so now it’s almost never.”
Arctic Monkeys know a thing or two about headlining Glastonbury, so it’s only natural NME asked Alex and his bandmates how they thought Metallica would fare at Worthy Farm. Turner said it was an “out there” decision, but applauded the bookers for taking a risk and delivering the unexpected.
