Pharrell Williams talks us through his childhood obession with Michael Jackson. By Dazed Digital. “The most important thing I have to say about Michael Jackson is that he was an incredibly enlightened, super-intelligent guy who changed the standard for entertainment. My first memory of him is being in front of the TV when I was a child, watching him perform. My mom didn’t have a floor model TV – we had one of the older ones that stood on a stand and I remember running as close to it as I could, totally mesmerised by him. It was the “Let’s Dance Let’s Shout” record and I was glued to the television. It was a phenomenal experience just to watch him perform. From then on, he reinvented the standard of what being an artist was about. I can’t think of anything I’d seen before that point, or that I’ve seen since for that matter, that even comes to being anything like it, musically or visually.
That said, at that age, I never thought about making music inspired by Michael. I didn’t think about making music at all. Thinking like that wasn’t an option. I was in the projects in Virginia – there was no custom of thinking like that. It wasn’t that so-and-so did something and you thought you might do it one day. At that age, in a place like that, you know what you love and what you feel an incredible relationship to. You know that you think music is magical and art is magical and movies are magical, but there isn’t much around to cultivate that magic, to make it even seem like a possibility in your own life. That was part of the amazing thing about Michael. What he did seemed impossibly magical. He was always just something completely special. More after the jump, thanks to aliXxXDabeat.

The first-season winner of the ABC series “Duets” is J Rome. The full-time student from Maryland won the fan vote and was declared the champion over runner-up John Glosson on Thursday night. He receives a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Both Rome and Glosson were mentored by Jennifer Nettles. Jason Farol, who finished third, was coached by Kelly Clarkson. Rome followed up on his victory by singing the Stevie Wonder hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” as ticker tape fell from the ceiling and all four mentors — including John Legend and Robin Thicke — celebrated on stage. Rome was the last amateur to perform prior to the announcement.
He and Jennifer sang the 1980s DeBarge hit “Rhythm of the Night.” John praised Rome for tackling a wide range of genres throughout the competition. Robin noted that Rome always has a big smile on his face. Kelly said she was so impressed by him. John Glosson teamed with Jennifer on the song “For Good,” from the musical “Wicked.” Both Kelly and John Legend admitted they were almost brought to tears by what they heard, and said he had great chemistry with Jennifer. Robin told John Glosson that he deserves all the success that will come his way in the future. Jason partnered with Kelly on Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel.”
Jennifer praised Jason for growing as an artist from week to week. John said Jason looked comfortable on stage. The night also featured performances from previously-eliminated contestants Bridget Carrington, who was joined by John Legend on The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter,” and Olivia Chisholm, who collaborated with Robin on Ray Charles’ “Fever.” Kelly and Jennifer kicked off the show with a cover of The Eurythmics tune “Would I Lie to You?”

So after all the mishmash about the bonus cut ‘Golden Girl‘ off Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange album if it was produced by The Neptunes/Pharrell or not , Tyler, The Creator stepped in and told us that it is indeed produced by Pharrell and not just Tyler himself, which I thought because of the credits on allmusic.com, so we got here the second Neptunes/Pharrell track off Channel Orange. I really don’t feeling it though, anyways all we need now is just the Original Version of ‘Sweet Life‘ that Tyler and Aaron were talking about, by saying its ‘very different from the final version’, check out Golden Girl below, thanks to BabyMilo aka Tyler, The Creator from the forum. One more thing, I’ve cut the long cuts of ‘Golden Girl‘ and kept the actual tune from the hidden version of the ‘End‘ tune. Channel Orange is out now on iTunes. Let me know guys what y’all think of the tune.
