Good music touches everyone, people from all walks of life, classes and generations. One might not have expected that house “godfather” and music legend Frankie Knuckles‘ music could have reached so many people that he would ultimately receive an official tribute from both the President of the United States and the First Lady themselves.
Check out Barack and Michelle‘s letter to the friends and family of Frankie after the jump!

!! OMG, Prince reissuing Purple Rain, promises new music & duet with Zooey Deschanel !!

Sometimes it snows in April (like it did this year) — and sometimes, its a sign… A sign that we could be getting new music from Prince — very soon! According to Pitchfork:

Prince has announced a new partnership with Warner Bros. that gives him the rights to his master recordings and creates “an exclusive global licensing partnership that covers every album released from 1978 into the ’90s,” according to a press release.
Forthcoming projects are in the works, but first up is a digitally remastered deluxe edition of the classic Purple Rain, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this summer.
Prince will record a new album for Warner Bros., too. (It’s rumored to be titled Plectrum Electrum.) His statement is pretty boilerplate, but spot the idiosyncratic detail: “A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros. Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship.”

Are you looking forward to new music from Prince and Zooey Deschanel? So, wait. Does that make Zooey Deschanel 2014’s new VANITY or what?!

!! OMG, welcome to the Internet in 2014: Sky Ferreira defends herself after being called a racist for featuring ‘black people as props’ in new video !!

It seems one can’t keep up these days with the insensitivities, wrong-doings, political correctnesses or lack thereof on the internet. My Facebook feed has started to feel like a real-time bell-ringing board, and every day seems like a proper education in “you can’t do that”!
Singer Sky Ferreira‘s statement regarding her latest video “I Blame Myself” appeared in my feed this morning, and Sky is ready to defend people who say she’s using “black people as props” to promote her music in her new video. Sky not only found those statements insulting personally, but also insulting towards the actors and dancers hired for her video who she says were hands-down the most talented during auditions.
Anyway, she gets into it more, “Would you feel more at ease if I danced with a bunch blonde white boys at a mall?” and you can read her statement in defence of the video after the jump! What are you thoughts on this whole new kaffufle?
