With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“I’ve learned love is like a brick, you can build a house or sink a dead body” May 12, 2011


I have some, hopefully, great news to impart. Regular readers may already know this, but With Just A Hint Of Mayhem has begat not just one, but two new blogs. Firstly there is With Just A Hint Of Amelia and now there is With Just A Hint Of Learning. Click on the names to visit and feel free to subscribe, comment, rate or just read! But I won’t forget that it’s Mayhem that is my main blog home so let me give you a little bit of music related trivia for today.

For the first time in a while I have more Gaga news for you. Apparently Quentin Tarantino is trying to tap up Lady Gaga in Cannes. He wants her to appear in his next film which is believed to be about a released slave who takes revenge on his former master. It isn’t clear exactly what kind of role Tarantino has in mind for her.

In other Gaga news she will apparently be streaming tracks from her new album on Farmville! What’s that all about? I really, really dislike Farmville. There will be a new area named Gagaville in her honour. I don’t know about you but I really dislike Farmville! She isn’t the first though, Dr Dre streamed his ‘Detox’ album via Mafia Wars.

And finally the tabloids have reported that Madonna has been working on a new track with her 14-year-old daughter Lourdes. It’s titled “It’s So Cool” allegedly! I can hardly wait 😉

Lady GaGa 'cracks' the 10 million mark

Is it just me or does this little piece of news seem a little weird to you as well? Lady GaGa has become the first living person to have more than 10 million FaceBook fans. But even stranger for me is that she is only in sixth place overall. The top 5 are Texas Hold ’em Poker, Michael Jackson, Mafia Wars, Facebook and the US TV show Family Guy. She recently overtook Barack Obama who languishes on a measly 9.8 million. I’m really pleased that Farmville doesn’t get a mention though. You can click here to read the story on the BBC’s Newsbeat.

Actual proof that Elmo is in fact a skinned Ewok

Whilst we’re talking strange here is another great story from Newsbeat; Elmo off of Sesame Street sings Beyonce and Alicia Keys whilst being interviewed by the delightful Natalie Jamieson. Click here to read it. I think I prefer his Beyonce to his Alicia. Does anyone really say Hubba Hubba anymore? Apart from Elmo obviously. Did you know that before he got his big break providing vocal arrangements and backing vocals for David Bowie on the ‘Young Americans’ album a certain Mr Luther Vandross wrote and sang for Sesame Street?

'Nuff Said!

And finally on this tour of some slightly odd stories we move on to Justin Bieber. The young Canadian’s Twitter page has been the subject of what I think is an excellent prank. With no restriction on the eligible countries his ‘fans’ were asked to vote for a country he should visit. Imageboard (wtf?) website 4Chan nominated North Korea and in the past couple of days the land of Kim Jong Il has moved from 24th place to 1st. Voting closes on July 7th, so come on, you know what to do, get on over and vote for North Korea!

There have also been some altogether more nasty hacks on his videos and such. These caused his YouTube videos to link to porn sites and spurred completely unfounded rumours that he was dead and that his Mum would be posing for Playboy. Click here for the story on the Beeb

Kim Jong Il (will he ever be known as Kim Jong Well?) contemplates the visit of Mr Bieber
