There’s a lot of nuance that goes into a biography that is bigger than whether or not something is true. When I was a kid, it was a simpler time. Today, I weigh everything on a moral compass. It has to do with: Is it fair? Is it hurtful? Is it going to cause people pain? That’s a big part of my process today that when I was a kid, I never considered.’

She now has a Tumblr page with heavy traffic, and was discovered by A$AP, her first famous customer. Then Rihanna saw his mouthpiece, and from there, Dolly became the grill-maker for celebrities. All of her creations are customized and handmade, and are unique pieces, she said to Vogue magazine she will never make the same one again. Using her dentistry practice, she makes a mold of someone’s mouth and then sculpts the piece using chromium chromate, then 18K gold, yellow or white.

Jay Z recently purchased the streaming service for some $56 million and he wants to make it as a competitor to Spotify, or Rdio. Alicia called it the ‘beginning of a whole new era’,… but for whom exactly? A new era for Jay Z and Madonna to make even more money? What’s new exactly? A new sound? a better listening experience?

Interviewed by US magazine, he reacted so politely it was a bit disarming: ‘I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody. How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?’… ‘You can’t please everybody, man. I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.’

I am sorry to let you know this, but Beyonce is a very greedy woman: when you are a pop star sitting on hundreds of millions, you leave the kids alone… how much can someone make on Etsy? Really nothing compared to the money owned by the queen B!

If Bey was a great artist, not a great person, but somebody who could delve deeply into the collective unconscious, like a Billie Holiday or an Etta James, she might deserve this regard. But she isn’t, as good as her last album was, what she is is the prancing self regard and low to the land swaggering woman who play acts a vicious robber and murderer. Is that what women want to be? I certainly hope not.

As promised, an annotated jay Z and Beyonce setlist plus a Spotify (except for bey’s last album mostly). Impressive… to a degree and they do go deep enough, right? Here and there they trade off songs (“Hard Knock” followed by “Pretty Huts”) and sometimes they have little run of songs, but it isn’t two separate shows: they comingle freely.

Ah, yes, reality. Now that the script writers of reality shows are suing for royalties the question as to what is real becomes murkier though Lennon’s “nothing is real” probably comes closest. And this sense of nothing is real invaded the music world this week.

This list is not exclusively based on money (otherwise Dr Dre is way richer than Beyonce) but on plain power, like the number of mentions in print, TV and radio, and the impact on social medias such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Anyway, Beyonce is rich because sex sells and she has certainly put her booty before whatever talent she has

The distribution services are still shaking out and until Apple finds a way to cut the major labels into Beats, it feels like Spotify’s game to lose, but the result is here in a diluted form. Jay Z will not make $2M off Holy Grail but from this tour? Figure once every one is paid, $25M mininum and the same for Bey. It is obvious that the way the Beatles retired from touring to make Sgt Pepper? It could never ever happen now

The couple who tours together gets to sell 70,000 seats together goes the old adage. Or rather doesn’t go the old adage, and it doesn’t rhyme either,. But it sure expresses the sentiments swirling round the over baked Mr. and Mrs. Carter, whose outrageous proliferate life of excess has gone well past the point of unseemly and is nearing the area of let them eat cake, after the revolution son, and are still manufacturing the moolah on their upcoming tour round the Arenas of the US. Or at least the major cities.

They offer themselves birthday presents that could feed a third world country for a few years, like a $2 million Bugatti , a private island or a $40,000,000 private jet!! Jay Z also owns a $2,500 pair of sneakers made with the skin of 9 different animals, elephant included, and only for this, he should be put in jail.

Eric sold nearly 300K copies of his dog album, giving spoken word a bad reputation from sea to shiny sea. The thing is, when he is good he is not good enough and when he is bad he is the absolute pits. Come back “Jack Daniels” all is forgiven.

The charts, which, of course, have never been a beacon of good taste aren’t even an icon of success. I think we use it because, you know, otherwise we’d have no idea who’s is winning. Now we can only take a guess at best.

Impressed by Bruce? In 2002 The Rising hit the # 1 spot with over half a million units shifted, in 2014? Less than 100,000. And that’s with giving away a free DVD with each CD sold. A depressing state of affairs in the music business, no doubt.

Apparently, she also wants to use others’ drama in her pop songs.
