John Legend Lands a Development Deal with HBO

ABC/RICK ROWELLJohn Legend has struck a deal with HBO.  The network just bought development rights for Down Lo, an edgy drama that John is working on with producer-director Tony Krantz, according to Deadline.com.

The show is set in Miami's South Beach, and follows the fast and flashy lives of top models, athletes and music artists.  As you probably guessed from the title, one of the Down Lo's characters is a gay rapper who is living "on the down low."

John has been making strides in the television world for a while now.  Last year, he signed a deal with Universal Cable Productions that would open the door for his Get Lifted film company to develop projects for cable and broadcast networks.

Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott Surprises Herself in Role as a Mentor on "The Voice"

Greenroom PRLady Antebellum's Hillary Scott was honored to serve as a mentor on NBC's The Voice this season helping out contestants on Adam Levine's team.  Pharrell, Sheryl Crow and Good Charlotte's Joel Madden are the other mentors this season, and Hillary tells ABC News Radio, "Seeing the other mentors on the show, I mean, I'm in amazing company, and I'm very, very thankful for the opportunity."

Even though Lady Antebellum has toured the world and sold millions of albums, Hillary was still a little nervous about giving advice to the up-and-coming singers on camera.

She says, "I know we've learned enough things that we could share them with others and encourage and give direction, but it isn't until you're in that kind of environment where you have to rise to the occasion to do that."

Sometimes Hillary even surprised herself with the good advice she was able to impart to the contestants.

"There were definitely a couple of moments where I was like, 'I know how to answer this question.'" Hillary says. "And you just feel a little bit more of a professional and a little bit more seasoned in what we've been doing and how hard we've worked to get where we are."

Overall, Hillary has loved getting to know and encourage the contestants on Adam's team, and she hopes to get back out to The Voice set later in the season.

"I'm watching it every night," she says.

Hillary's band mate Charles Kelley has already chosen Danielle Bradbury from Blake Shelton's team as his favorite contestant this season.

"I'm putting a million dollars in Vegas on her," he says. "She is going to be a star.  I don't know if she's gonna win, but she's going to be a star."

The battle rounds continue Monday night on NBC's The Voice

Backstreet Boys Mark 20th Anniversary with Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Today

ABC/Lou RoccoHappy Anniversary, Backstreet Boys!  This past Saturday marked the 20th anniversary for the group, who last year reunited with original member Kevin Richardson and are working on a brand-new album.  On Monday, they'll celebrate that impressive milestone with another one: getting their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"It's amazing," says Howie Dorough of the honor, telling ABC News Radio, "We've all grown up as little kids seeing some of our biggest inspirations get stars on the Walk of Fame, and to see how our fans rallied up and really supported us and championed for us to go out there and get a star is really cool."  What Howie means is that fans actually have to nominate celebrities to receive a star: they can't just ask for one, or buy one.

A.J. McLean agrees with Howie that their success, and their longevity as a group, is all due to their fans. "We have the best fans in the entire universe.  They've been following us through thick and thin, high and low for twenty years.  It's been awesome," he tells ABC News Radio.

But Brian Littrell thinks there's another reason why the group has managed to stick around for so long. "Yes, the fans make us who we are are, but at the same time, we have to be passionate and caring and work oriented and have a drive to wanna do this," he explains. "So, I think, you know, us being together has to do with the chemistry that we have, but also the chemistry that we get from our fans."

Nick Carter says he's thrilled about the star, telling ABC News Radio, "We're more than excited.  I mean it's almost as if I'm being inducted into the Hall of Fame for football, you know?  It feels like that to me...I don't know what to say.  Give me my yellow jacket, you know?  It's just weird."  

The guys' star will be located at 7072 Hollywood Boulevard, next to that of another famous boy band, Boyz II Men.  It'll be the 2,495th star on the Walk of Fame, in case you're keeping count.  Super producer and hit songwriter Max Martin, the man behind many of the group's biggest hits, will be on hand to pay tribute to the group, as will a "special Backstreet Boys fan" whose identity has not been revealed.  Can't make it to Hollywood?  Watch the whole thing live at WalkofFame.com at 11: 30 a.m. PT.

Rob Zombie Had “Complete Freedom” Making Horror Flick, "The Lords of Salem"

Kevin Nixon/Metal Hammer magazine via Getty ImagesRob Zombie’s new horror flick, The Lords of Salem, arrived in theaters over this past weekend.  The movie centers around the demonic return of a 300-year-old coven of witches to modern-day Salem, Massachusetts.  The singer/director says that he chose to make the flick because he was given total creative freedom for the project.

“This [movie] was an idea I came up with many years ago that I just filed away and forgot about,” he tells ABC News Radio.  “Then these producers came to me and said, ‘We want to, you know, fund these more low-budget sort of supernatural-type movies,’ and since they didn’t have a lot of money, they basically said, ‘You have complete freedom, one hundred percent of who you want to cast, what you want to do, just everything.’  It was like, ‘We are one hundred percent uninvolved.’”

The film features a score created by John 5, the guitarist from Zombie's solo band.  He chose John 5 to do the score because of the trust he developed in the guitarist over the course of their close working relationship.  “I work with John so much, you know, non-stop for eight years, that I knew he would be able to do it, and I knew I would get what I wanted quickly because we wouldn’t have a lot of time to go back and forth,” he explains.  “It was like he would almost have to get it perfect the first try.  For the most part he could and that, it just was phenomenal.”

In other Zombie news, the singer will release his fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, on Tuesday.

David Lee Roth Says Van Halen Preparing to Record New Album

Facebook.com/VanHalenDavid Lee Roth says Van Halen will begin work on a new album this summer.

While in Australia over the weekend for the first Stone Music Festival in Sydney, the singer told Fasterlouder.com, "We are going to be getting together, not this month, at the end of June to start preparing for some new recording and some new songs." 

The project could take a while though. "Van Halen projects are a bit like James Bond movies," Roth says.  "They come around about once every three-and-a-half years.  Any sooner and it’s like, 'Weren’t you just here?'"

Roth explains that the band plans their CDs two and half years in advance.  "From the time you go, 'Let’s start to write some songs', until all of the machines of production and humanity kick in, things move achingly slow," he explains.  "Especially if you are art-centric, if you want something to last, it’s going to take a long time to put it all together."

Van Halen will tour Japan in June followed by dates in the United States later this year.

Justin & Selena Reunite Backstage in Norway

Facebook.com/SelenaGomezJustin Bieber and Selena Gomez: together again?  According to US Weekly magazine, it sure looked that way April 18, as the former couple reunited backstage at Justin's concert in Oslo, Norway.

Two sources confirmed to US Weekly that the reason that Selena traveled to Norway was to see her former boyfriend.  "They have a crazy connection. They just can't seem to break their connection. It can be intense," one source claims.

Furthermore, a People magazine source says the two were holding hands, and that they kissed. The source adds, "They looked really in love, like no fights ever happened before. It definitely looked like they were back together."

They sure looked lovey-dovey in a quickly-pulled Instagram photo Justin posted Saturday night. In the pic, which you can still see on E! Online, Selena brushes back her hair as she leans into Justin.


Selena and Justin broke up and reunited a few times in 2012, but finally appeared to call things off for good just before New Year's Eve, when the two had a "huge fight," according to the magazine. 

Appearing earlier this week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Selena presented herself as a single girl, talking about what qualities she's looking for in a guy, and how she enjoys attending "single girls only" parties at her friend Taylor Swift's house.

Brantley Gilbert Prefers Riding His Tour Bus to Flying the Friendly Skies

ValoryBrantley Gilbert is always on the go taking his music to fans across the country, and he prefers to do that traveling on his tour bus as opposed to flying to his shows.

Explaining why he hates flying the friendly skies, Brantley tells GAC, "I hate customs. I hate going through security. I hate layovers. I hate cancelled flights.”

Though Brantley has had a lot of success so far, he isn't to the point where he can fly privately either.

"I’m kinda on a commercial budget,” Brantley says. “I sit in an economy seat. So I would definitely rather be on my bus. I’ve really gotten comfortable with it. It is a home away from home. I can honestly say I sleep just as good there if not better than at home.”

Brantley will be rolling along all summer opening for Tim McGraw on the Two Lanes of Freedom tour starting next month.

Julian Lennon Follows in Father's Footsteps and Visits Gibraltar

Facebook.com/JulianLennonHis father did it, his grandfather did it, and now Julian Lennon is doing it.  The son of former Beatle John Lennon will visit Gibraltar.

Lennon will visit the British territory, located on the southern tip of Spain, to check out the International Beatles Memorabilia and Julian Lennon Collection exhibition located there, according to the Spanish newspaper The Olive Press. However, the May 23 trip will likely have deeper significance for Julian, since the famed Rock of Gibraltar is where his father married Yoko Ono in March of 1969.  John Lennon famously referenced the nuptials just two months later in "The Ballad of John and Yoko": "You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain."

Julian Lennon is the only child of John Lennon and his first wife, Cynthia.  John Lennon's father, Alf, is also said to have visited Gibraltar in the 1930s, while serving as a merchant seaman.

Record Store Day Offers a Bounty of Cool Limited-Edition Releases

RecordStoreDay.comIt's time to rejoice, audiophiles!  Today marks the sixth annual installment of Record Store Day, celebrated at independent music retailers throughout the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and a few other countries.  In commemoration of the event, a vast number of artists issue limited-edition vinyl singles, EPs and LPs that are sold exclusively at participating indie record shops.

This year's Record Store Day is proving to be one of the most expansive yet, with more than 290 special releases headed for U.S. stores alone.  There are way too many discs to list, but here are some stand-outs:

-Paramore’s The Holiday Sessions seven-inch disc -- cut into in the shape of a hibiscus flower -- featuring the interlude tracks from their recently released self-titled album.

-Soundgarden’s 10” pink vinyl album boasting six demos recorded during the sessions from their first album in more than 15 years, King Animal.

-Rob Zombie’s 10” vinyl single -- that can only be properly enjoyed when played in reverse -- including “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown” and “Teenage Nosferatu P***y” from his upcoming fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.

-Mad Season -- the all-star collaboration that included late Alice in Chains frontman Layne Staley and Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready -- will also be issuing something special for Record Store Day: an expanded vinyl addition of the band’s only studio album, AboveThe collection includes the standard release along with three previously-unreleased tracks from the band's unfinished second album, with new lyrics and vocals by former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan.

Drummer Barrett Martin tells ABC News Radio that he’s always had a strong connection with vinyl records, and that he’s glad fans will get to experience the tracks on their turntables. “What I like about it is that it allows people to buy something that is tangible and is big enough that it's a physical piece of art that you own, and within that art is contained the music,” he explains. “And that's the very thing that got me interested in jazz and rock and roll when I was, basically, a kid.”

-Ramones drummer Marky Ramone has just re-issued the two albums by his pre-Ramones band, Dust, on one CD, but there will be a special two-LP version out on Record Store Day.  Ramone tells ABC News Radio that he appreciates that there are still vinyl aficionados out there. "It's interesting that there are purists that still collect today and they still believe in that warmth and depth of vinyl compared to a CD or something you listen to on your iPod," he says.  "I have every format because I travel and I can't bring vinyl with me.  Sorry, but when I'm home, I tend to listen to vinyl."

Carrie Colliton -- co-founder of Record Store Day -- notes that some bands are releasing some rather unique recordings for the initiative this year. “Some really exciting things are records that are being released that were recorded at a record store,” she tells ABC News Radio. “Mumford & Sons went to a record store in Maine called Bull Moose before their [Babel] record came out and they recorded an in-store [performance], and it's being released on CD and vinyl.  Imagine Dragons did the same thing at a record store in Colorado and that's pretty exciting.”

Colliton adds that you should plan on hanging out at your local record store for a while after you pick up your share of the exclusive vinyl releases. “Every single store plans their own events and they range from barbeques and cookout to major concerts,” says Colliton. “Most of the stores have some form of live music going on, and most of the stores will also have free party favors, promotional things to give to their customers.”

Billy Joel, Aerosmith, Van Halen Headline Australia's Inaugural Stone Music Fest This Weekend

Facebook.com/StoneMusicFestBilly Joel, Aerosmith and Van Halen are in Sydney, Australia this weekend for a special musical event: the inaugural Stone Music Festival, set for Saturday and Sunday at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.  Aerosmith and Van Halen will perform on Saturday, while the Piano Man serves as the headliner on Sunday.

The Stone Music fest is named after the landmark 1974 Australian movie Stone, which told the tale of disenfranchised Vietnam War veterans who turn their backs on convention and start their own society based on their passion for motorcycles.  The event seeks to bring together music fans of all ages in celebration of freedom and rock 'n' roll.

Joel has been vocal about his performance at the festival serving as sort of a test for whether or not he wants to continue performing live.  According to Australia's The Age, at a press conference promoting the concert, Joel said that his attitude about the performance is, "If I suck, I'm not going to do it any more." 

After Joel made that comment, Van Halen's David Lee Roth responded, horrified, "You're not gonna do it any more? Like for life? Or you're not gonna do it any more this year?"  Joel replied, "If I stop, I'm gonna stop."  A disbelieving Roth asked, "Like, permanently stop?"  When Joel answered in the affirmative, Roth said, "Hey can we do that? I want to do that!"

Kacey Musgraves Performing in London for Record Store Day, Shares Love for Vinyl

Facebook.com/KaceyMusgravesKacey Musgraves is celebrating Record Store Day in London Saturday with a performance at the Slipped Discs record shop.  She's currently across the pond promoting her debut project, Same Trailer Different Park, but Kacey didn't want to miss the chance to support independent records stores.  

A big part of Record Store Day is the celebration of listening to music on vinyl, and Kacey's debut album is available on that format.  It turns out Kacey was exposed to the joy of listening to records early in life thanks to her grandpa, who she calls "Pop."

"He literally just like loves to buy vinyl," Kacey tells ABC News Radio. "Garage sales, Goodwill, quarter, nickel, dollar whatever.  He picks it up even if he's never heard of the artist.  So, he's over the years acquired all these vinyls.  It's just like this big, massive library."

As Kacey got older, her grandfather let her pick out albums to listen to on a little record player he set up for her.

She says, "It was just cool because none of my other friends had that, and it gave me access to older music that I would have never heard otherwise.  I'm an old soul anyway.  I just, I love music from, especially the '60s for some reason.  I'm really inspired by that."

Kacey's grandfather recently gave her a sealed copy of the Beatles' Abbey Road album, and her current collection includes a lot of vintage country vinyl from the likes of Marty Robbins and Glen Campbell.  Kacey's also a big fan of the vinyl version of Lee Ann Womack's CMA Award-winning album, There's More Where That Came From.

Says Kacey, "That is a beautiful country record, and it just belongs on vinyl."

Her collection includes some modern sounds too.  She adds, "Somebody just gave me a Nicki Minaj "Super Bass" hot pink vinyl, and that's really cool.  So, it's kind of all over the map."
