Music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has joined forces with Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine and fashion photographer and visual artist Raphael Mazzucco to create coffee table book CULO (mean buttock in Italian) which just features women showing off their naked buttocks.

Singers Nicole Scherzinger and Lady Gaga (both signed to Interscope) are both featured in the book.

CULO by Mazzucco is available in stores and as an e-book.

The pictures in this book are described as being “artistic”. People just love to throw the word “artistic”  around.

In reality this is just weird and a load of RUBBISH.

Nicole Scherzinger WHY????? You are better than this! And what made them think that people would want to see Lady Gaga’s naked buttocks???

The thought of Jimmy Iovine and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs (“Executive Editor”) turning up at the photo shoots and leering at the models and the photographs afterwards just makes my skin crawl.

Dirty old bruk down perverts.

MUSIC INDUSTRY SKULL DUGGERY: JIMMY IOVINE, EMINEM, SKEPTA AND DMCA (DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT) ABUSE

Jimmy Iovine

Last week I posted the news that UK artist Skepta’s new single Dare To Dream had been removed from YouTube and passed on to golden boy Eminem by Interscope Records founder Jimmy Iovine (Click HERE to read all about it).

And since then it’s been revealed just how this all went down.

Website Torrent Freak writes,

After “Dare to Dream” was put up on YouTube one of its early listeners was Jimmy Iovine, founder of Interscope records. Recognizing quality, Iovine had plans in his mind for Skepta’s track so, with help from parent company Universal, they had YouTube remove the song on copyright grounds.

Armed with cash Interscope then approached Boy Better Known, a group and record label founded in 2005 by Skepta and the team behind Dare to Dream.

Skepta

So that CRETIN Iovine arranged for the single to be removed from YouTube and they placed a fraudulent “copyright complaint” notice in its place without even having the decency to contact Skepta first with a request to buy the single. What would have happened if Skepta had refused to sell?

The sheer arrogance and blatant abuse of the DMCA vehicle by Iovine is just sickening.

This is why I wouldn’t last five minutes as an artist.  I would be in prison right now. My crime - smashing an unscrupulous music executive’s face in.

Listen to Skepta Dare To Dream below.

UK MUSIC NEWS: SKEPTA HANDS OVER NEW SINGLE TO EMINEM

July 16, 2011 10 comments

Several days ago UK artist Skepta announced on Twitter that his new single Dare To Dream had been passed on to Eminem.

……….

First off I don’t like that cretin Jimmy Iovine. I know what your about, I got your number sir!

Secondly it sounds like Skepta didn’t really want to hand over his new single, which was already receiving some radio play in the UK. It also sounds like Universal removed the single from YouTube without even informing him first, and he was bamboozled and hood winked in to agreeing to hand over the single to Iovine and Eminem.

Iovine and Eminem come knocking and people get ready to sell their souls and their briefs.

Anyway I hope Skepta and crew were paid handsomely for handing over Dare To Dream.

Check out his version below.

……………………………………….

I actually like the single. Skepta should have held on to it (that’s if he had a choice).

And why not release a UK version giving Skepta the opportunity to appear alongside Eminem on the track?

And Skepta you shouldn’t feel privileged, you should be furious. Acknowledge what’s really happened here.

NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE WRITER’S PROFILE ON ‘SINGER’ M.I.A CAUSES UPSET

M.I.A

This article has given me my first big laugh of the day.

New York Times Magazine contributor Lynn Hirschberg has written an article about British “artist” M.I.A (real name Maya Arulpragasam), which has hilariously forced the grossly over-rated star to retaliate via her Twitter account, by childishly posting Hirschberg’s mobile number to her adoring followers.

I doubt Hirschberg gives a toss Maya.

Click here to read extracts from the article, and if you have time to spare the article in it’s entirety HERE.

Maya you seriously need to get over herself luv. You really do believe your own hype.

I’ve never bought in to this woman’s image/clap trap and never will.
