Katy Perry's 'Firework' Video

Katy Perry's video for "Firework" isn't just about a bunch of sparks flying from people's chests. There is actually some meaning behind all those explosions.
The concept was simple: "I was thinking about how it takes just a little spark to make something as big as a firework," Katy says. For the video, the "Teenage Dream" singer took it up a notch, launching a contest looking for kids who did something out of the ordinary to overcome their difficulties, then flying 250 of them to Budapest for the video shoot. Katy told us how she picked the winners. Watch now »

San Diego Padres announced today that they have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with infielder Orlando Hudson

The San Diego Padres announced today that they have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with infielder Orlando Hudson for the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

Hudson, 33, spent the 2010 season with the Minnesota Twins and hit .268 (133-for-497) with six home runs, 24 doubles, five triples, 37 RBI, 80 runs scored and 10 stolen bases in 126 games played. He started 123 games at second base last season, where he has a career .986 fielding percentage in 1,121 games. The switch-hitter is a two-time All-Star, most recently with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2009, and four-time Rawlings Gold Glove award winner.



The White Sox have agreed to terms on a three-year, $13-million contract with free agent relief pitcher Jesse Crain.

Crain, a 29-year-old right-hander, went 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA (23 ER/68.0 IP) and 62 strikeouts in 71 appearances with Minnesota in 2010. He compiled a 0.28 ERA (1 ER/31.2 IP) in 35 games from June 10-August 31, including a streak of 21 consecutive scoreless appearances (20.0 IP) from June 12-August 4.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder tied for eighth in the American League with a career-high 21 holds and ranked ninth in appearances. He limited opponents to a .215 (53-247) average, including a .228 (33-145) mark by right-handers and a .196 (20-102) mark by lefties, and allowed just 23.1 percent (9-39) of inherited runners to score.

Garth Brooks Still Got It And Proves It to the Fans

If you were unable to attend the first of his nine sold-out concerts in Nashville, check out a review of the show.

Garth Brooks lived up to his fans' most ardent expectations from the moment he took the stage Thursday (Dec. 16) evening at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the first of two shows.

He didn't swing from a rope or smash his guitar, but, otherwise, Garth 2010 was pretty much like Garth 1990 -- bursting with energy, effusive in his praise of the audience and in complete control of the situation.

It is a measure of his appeal that the crowd stood and cheered throughout the entire show. (The last time this writer witnessed the same level of enthusiasm was when Michael Jackson played the University of Tennessee stadium in Knoxville in 1984.)

"Oh, I have missed you guys so much," Brooks gushed three songs into his set as rapturous cheers grew into a sustained roar. Although there were security guards on duty, they kept a low profile while fans pushed up against the edge of the shoulder-high stage. To accommodate ticket demands, seats were sold on all sides of the arena, even in back of the stage. Read Full Review

"All 28 of my trucks for the Monsterball were detained by the French government going on over 26 hrs, 2 of my employees were arrested trying to get into Paris so we could perform. I am furious and devastated, its unfair to my fans and to me. I asked if I could do a stripped version of show, but there would be no sound or power source, its all been detained. I'm so sorry,angry+sad. I love Paris + I love my French fans. I'm sorry little monsters."

The Streets
Going Through Hell (Dot Rotten Remix)
Download this song

Dot Rotten's remix of "Going Through Hell" is less reverential, cutting the original's Zeppelin-esque guitars (was former The Music frontman Robert Harvey called in for the chorus before or after they were added?) and pasting goofball grime-pop synths in their place. As long as Mike Skinner's voice is there, though, it's never gonna be anything other than The Streets.

Krakpot (Moby Remix) (Short Edit)
Download this song

Born to a robotics engineer father who worked at General Motors and obsessed over Kraftwerk, Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman was destined to hit the burgeoning house scene in Detroit. "Krakpot" originally appeared on his 1994 record Recycled Plastik, but in honor of chronicling his long career, he's invited some of the people that inspired him to refit his originals on a compilation called Arkives. Hawtin and techno artist/tea slinger/Minor Threat-enthusiast, Moby came up together at those warehouse parties and now he's re-fashioned the track from thumping house into something a little bit more ethereal. A testament to the history of electronic music, just like the rest of Arkives.

Felguk remixed Madonna's new single "Celebration"

Felguk Having just officially remixed Madonna's new single "Celebration", and frequently staring in the Myspace and Beatport top charts, Gustavo Rozenthal and Felipe Lozinsky, who form the duo Felguk, is a force to be reckoned with.

Their massive bass-led pumping electro-house, is a genre of its own. Un-phased by clubs or open air-festivals, whether playing live or Djing, they are quite simply a phenomenon in the making.

For 2 years, Felguk has been headlining majors parties in Brazil, always getting a warm and excited response of the crowd. Having toured USA, Canada and Mexico, the duo is ready to take the next step on the scene.

With a passion for rock, funk and pop and releases on Bug-Eyed Records and Plasmapool have placed Felguk firmly on the scene, being incorporated in the sets of notorious djs such as Spencer & Hill, Adam K, Klass, Miles Dyson, Tim Healey and Dj Dan.

Recently, the duo from Rio de Janeiro was invited by Warner Bros. Records, to remix the new single of superstar Madonna, "Celebration", being part of a small group of top DJs and music producers such as Benny Benassi and Paul Oakenfold.

Indigo Girls: New Amy Ray solo CD "MVP Live" now available

FROM Amy Ray

I know I been talking about this one for a while and it’s finally here. Amy Ray MVP Live represents the last couple years of touring I have done with my all-star band of “most valuable players.” I am lucky to have this band – they play at a level that always challenges me musically, but most importantly they elevate the heart and soul of my songs.

I met Kaia Wilson (guitar, vocals) and Melissa York (drums) way back in 1999 when they were playing with their punk trio-The Butchies. I had been a fan of Team Dresch and always hoped to make music of this vein. When they stepped into my life, these dreams came true. Julie Wolf (keys, vocals) is an amazing player that I’ve known over the years in many different musical circles. She has played extensively with the IG’s in the last 5 years and is now the glue that holds this band together in so many ways. I met Greg Griffith (bass, producer, vocals) through Melissa York. He has been her rhythmic counterpart in many projects, since they were young punks running around NYC. I started with Greg as a producer on my last studio record, Didn’t It Feel Kinder. He is now a permanent fixture in my musical life.

Sound engineer, Brian Speiser went on a couple of tours to run sound and record our shows on good days and bad. I combed through the recordings and found what I thought were our most representative moments. Speiser mixed the sounds together in a masterful way, always keeping in mind the point of view of the audience, and the feel of the show and club. This is a swath of what he captured.

Live music is a visceral experience that can’t be totally captured with digital bits or tape, but I am hoping MVP Live will at the very least reflect the moments that we shared with the “small but mighty” audiences in the rock clubs where we play. My strongest hope is that this live record will take you to the show and then transport you to a place of energy, strength, and emotion.

Hall of Famer Feller passes away at 92

December 15, 2010 – Indians legend and Hall of Famer Bob Feller died in Cleveland at 9:15 p.m. on Wednesday of acute leukemia. He was 92.

Born in Van Meter, Iowa, in 1918, Feller made his big league debut in 1936, four months before his 18th birthday. Before his career ended on Sept. 30, 1956, he had won 266 games, struck out 2,581 batters, pitched three no-hitters, 12 one-hitters and 44 shutouts and won a pitchers' Triple Crown.

He led the league in victories six times and strikeouts seven times. He produced those numbers despite missing nearly four seasons because of military service - he enlisted in the Navy the day after Pearl Harbor. One can only imagine where four more full seasons, would have put his final numbers. This true baseball hero will be missed by Indians fans and the baseball world. Read More at
