Adele Says Amy Winehouse ‘Paved The Way For Artists Like Me’

‘Rolling in the Deep’ singer writes about being inspired by Winehouse. By Gil Kaufman Amy Winehouse Photo: Getty Images A common thread in many of the stories about the death of Amy Winehouse is the huge influence the “Back to Black” singer had on a new generation of young vocalists. Many of those singers, from Jessie J to Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson have weighed in on their sadness about the passing of Winehouse at the age of 27 from yet-undetermined causes. And while Winehouse has been mentioned as a touchstone for any number of new British pop crooners such as Duffy and Estelle, the one artist most frequently cited as a descendant of the Winehouse influence is Adele . With her smash hit 21 album , the year’s fastest selling to date on the back of a massive hit single, “Rolling in the Deep,” Adele is enjoying the kind of cross-over success that helped Winehouse move millions of copies of her 2006 breakthrough, Back to Black. She’s clearly benefitted from the trail blazed by the “Rehab” singer and on Monday (July 25), Adele reacted to the news with a thoughtful, heartfelt blog post in which she wrote about just how important Amy was to her sound and how much her influence will be missed. Click for photos of Amy Winehouse’s life and career. “Not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it,” wrote Adele in a post titled “Amy Flies in Paradise X.” “With no fuss and no compromise. But she knew what she was capable of and didn’t even need to try. If she wanted to do something she would and if she didn’t she’d say f— off. It came easy to her and that’s why we all loved her so much. We believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blas

The nominations for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are in! Kanye West, Adele and Katy Perry lead the pack with a total of 23 nominations between them. Two of Katy’s nominations include Video Of The Year for “Fireworks” and Best Pop Video for “Last Friday Night.” She and Kanye share the grab for Best Special Effects for “ET.” Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars and Eminem scored three nominations a piece. Lil Wayne and Chris Brown have two. However, Rihanna only received nominations for her guest appearances on choruses. Are we the only ones who feel she was snubbed? Before the haters go NUTS, you don’t have to be a fan of her music to recognize that she wasn’t nominated for a single piece of her solo work this year. Not one. And this was her year – 5 back-to-back singles and 5 back-to-back videos (three of which went all the way to #1!) C’mon! You couldn’t even change a radio station or television channel without hearing one of her hits.

2011 MTV VMA Nominations: Kanye West Scores 7, Rihanna Snubbed

Katy Perry And The VMAs: A History

The most-nominated artist of the 2011 show hasn’t taken home a Moonman yet, but she did take home a husband! By Jocelyn Vena Katy Perry at 2010 VMAs in Los Angeles Photo: WireImage The 2011 VMAs will honor a number of the year’s best artists, but one very kooky, colorful California Gurl is looking to outshine them all: Katy Perry tops the nominees with a whopping nine nods for “E.T.,” “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” “Teenage Dream” and “Firework.” Perry has yet to win a Moonman, but the show has played an important role in her career and personal life in other interesting ways. “It’s always exciting to be a part of the VMAs because there’s so much spontanaeity,” “I just remember growing up seeing craziness ensued with the VMAs. I wasn’t allowed to see it, but I done watched it!” Back in 2008, Kinga Burza, the director of “I Kissed a Girl,” warned MTV News that Perry would soon be a force to be reckoned with. “She’s fresh, original, intelligent and talented, with a star-like charisma, which will have boys and girls all around the world cooing for more!” Burza said. And she was right. Perry made her VMA debut that year, singing along with the night’s house band, Travis Barker and the late DJ AM . That night, “I Kissed a Girl” was up for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Female Video and Best New Artist. She went home empty-handed, but the show was the first time (and certainly not the last time) that she and host Russell Brand would cross paths. By the time 2009 rolled around, the VMAs were back in New York City, and Perry had become a household name. She was nominated for Best Female Video for “Hot n Cold” and opened the show with a rocking performance of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” alongside Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. Although she didn’t take any prizes home, she did manage to nab Brand , who hosted the show for a second year. Perry said she saw a different side of the comedian during and after the show. “I really appreciate his sense of humor,” she explained. “It’s real dark, it’s real wrong and it’s really funny.” In 2010, Perry hit the VMAs’ white-hot carpet in Los Angeles and was by then one of the biggest pop stars in the world. Her relationship with Brand had escalated to an engagement, and her sweet and sassy “California Gurls” video , featuring Snoop Dogg, was nominated for Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. “I like the idea of this being like a board game,” she said of the video in 2009. “It’s kind of like Candy Land. That was probably one of my favorite games to play growing up. I like to bring back those pure childhood moments and give them a little bit of a naughty twist, of course!” Perry is coming up on her fourth VMA appearance in 2011 and this could finally be her year. She’s back in her home state of California, she’s tied the knot with Brand, and she’s broken all sorts of records with the songs off her Teenage Dream album. Considering she’s up for hardware in categories like best Female Video (“Firework”), Video of the Year (“Firework”) and Best Collaboration (“E.T.”) featuring Kanye West, to name a few, her chances of bringing home a Moonman or two are looking good. The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live on Sunday, August 28, from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Bruno Mars Tweets Excitement About VMA Nominations

With four nominations, Mars gives props to his choreographers, congratulates his competitors and urges ‘hooligans’ to vote. By Gil Kaufman Bruno Mars Photo: Getty Images Wednesday was a good day for Bruno Mars . The singer/songwriter, who has been on an epic roll over the past 12 months, got some seriously great news when it was revealed that he scored four nominations for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards . The man behind Cee Lo Green’s epic hit “Forget You,” not to mention hits by Travie McCoy and his own smashes such as “Just the Way You Are” and “The Lazy Song,” was beside himself when the news hit, tweeting a series of responses to his first-ever VMA noms . “VMAs!!!!” he wrote just as the announcements were going out, followed by “4 Nominations!?!?!?! THANK YOU @MTV.” He also gave some serious props to the “America’s Best Dance Crew” troupe Poreotics, who appeared disguised as monkeys in his “Lazy Song” video, which was nominated in the Best Choreography category. “YO @POREOTICS – LAZY SONG NOMINATED FOR BEST CHOREOGRAPHY!! #VMAs #MoNKeySwAG!!” he wrote. He had plenty of reason to celebrate, since the moody, piano-dragging video for “Grenade” is up for Video of the Year, competing against top nominee Katy Perry (“Firework”), Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Tyler the Creator (“Yonkers”) and the Beastie Boys (“Make Some Noise”). He gave shout-outs to the competition in that battle, saying, “@mtvnews @f—tyler @katyperry @beastieboys Damn!! All great videos!! Congrats to you guys. #SeriousCompetition.” “Grenade” is also in contention in the Best Male Video category, where it will face off against Green’s “Forget You,” Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie,” Kanye West’s “All of the Lights,” and Justin Bieber’s “U Smile.” Mars’ fourth nomination is in the Best Pop Video race, where he faces Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Britney Spears (“Till the World Ends”), Perry (“Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and Pitbull (“Give Me Everything”). At the end of the day, Mars just found it all hard to believe. “But seriously?? Who drags a piano across town in some church shoes??? The Brunz does!!! HOOLIGANS VOTE!!!” he encouraged his fans.

Tom Felton ‘Grateful’ He Wasn’t Cast As Harry Potter

Actor also auditioned to be Ron Weasley before landing the part of Draco Malfoy. By Terri Schwartz, with reporting by Josh Horowitz Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy Photo: Jaap Buitendijk/Warner Bros. With the “Harry Potter” film series ending this Friday, it’s hard to imagine actors other than Daniel Radcliffe or Rupert Grint playing the roles of Harry Potter or Ron Weasley. Tom Felton , best known as Draco Malfoy in the films, says that very easily could have been the case, though. He apparently originally auditioned for the role of Harry and then went on to try out for Ron before finally landing the role of Draco. He admitted to MTV News that he would have been a “very different individual” had he been cast as either of the other two characters originally. “I’m very grateful I am in the film at all, but even more grateful that I got the character of Draco,” Felton said. “I think Rupert and Dan, there’s no question in my mind, there’s no one else in the world that, A) could have played the character better, but B) could have handled the behind-the-scenes pressure those guys have dealt with over the last decade.” Felton said there was never any sense of jealousy or rivalry on the set of “Harry Potter” after he, Radcliffe, Grint and the rest of the ensemble were finally cast in the roles they would hold for more than a decade. Instead, the crew became a family. “There was a great sense of kind of being on a team, and Daniel kind of flew that flag from day one,” Felton explained. “He was always the most excited, the most eager, he had the most fun on set, and through that, I think everyone just kind of latched on to him and sort of followed his lead. So he’s definitely been like the godfather over the years, and he’s definitely been the one that’s been the most inspirational, for sure.” Check out everything we’ve got on “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.” For breaking news, celebrity columns, humor and more — updated around the clock — visit MTVMoviesBlog.com .

Lil Wayne’s Sorry 4 The Wait Makes Up For Lost Time

Mixtape Daily looks at Weezy’s new offering, which includes his take on everything from ‘Racks’ to ‘Rolling in the Deep.’ By Rob Markman Lil Wayne Photo: Erika Goldring/WireImage Mixtape Daily Special Delivery Headliner : Lil Wayne Tape : Sorry 4 the Wait Real Spit : For Lil Wayne , sorry is more than just a five letter word. Weezy’s apologies now come in the form of 12-track mixtapes. Tha Carter IV ‘s numerous pushbacks may have ticked off fans, so to make up for it, Tunechi offered up Sorry 4 the Wait, a free Internet download. Swiping beats from today’s most popular rap tracks, Weezy starts off bragging and boasting on “Tunechi’s Back,” his take on Meek Mill and Rick Ross’ Tupac ode. Kreayshawn’s “Gucci Gucci” gets reworked as well. During the song’s intro, Wayne places the blame on his manager Cortez Bryant, screaming, “Sorry for the wait, yeah Tez pushed the album back, man. Sorry!” With the disclaimer out of the way, Wayne spits nothing nice over the bouncy beat, weaving free-associative rhymes about promiscuous women, drugs and guns. One of the song’s better gun-busting, cocaine lines comes when Wayne raps, “Tunechi, Tunechi tote the tooly, f— around and pop ya/ My homeys got that white girl, call it Lady Gaga.” The Young Money boss breathes new life into YC’s “Racks,” no small feat considering the track has already been redone by about two dozen different rap acts so far. Still, Wayne makes it his own with unforgettable lines like, “I can’t f— with ho n—-s, I can’t trust these ho’s either/ Wake up early in the morning eat that p—y like cold pizza.” Most of Sorry ‘s tracks are upbeat and aggressive, but Wayne does manage to slow it down on “Marvin’s Room,” a retread of Drake’s track by the same name. “Sure Thing” comes next, and while it is less romantic than “Marvin’s Room,” Wayne still manages to make lyrics about taking pain pills for dinner sound smooth. Perhaps what’s most impressive is Birdman Jr.’s flip of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” The pounding drums and steady rhythm is the perfect backdrop for Wayne’s free-wheeling thought process. There are no deep meanings, no revelations or sophisticated musings, just lyrics about Wayne’s greatness sprinkled with references to ecstasy and ED medications: “Young Money, mother—-er, yeah we that sh–/ Yeah Weezy go hard like Cialis / Don’t love that bi—, I f— that ho/ She pop X, I smoke Os, tic-tac-toe.” Sorry 4 the Wait should hold folks over until Tha Carter IV ‘s August 29 release date (barring any more delays). Judging by the early response to this release, however, fans probably wouldn’t mind a second apology. For other artists featured in Mixtape Daily, check out Mixtape Daily Headlines .

Adele Says 21 Has People Thinking ‘I’m Sort Of A Manic-Depressive’

But the British sensation, whose album hits stores in the U.S. on Tuesday, says she just writes somber songs. By James Montgomery Adele’s 21 Photo: Columbia Records Adele is sitting 29 floors above Times Square, eyes tilted toward the ceiling as a makeup artist dabs away, lamenting her early morning (she performed Friday, February 18, on the “Today” show) and laughing that her handlers are trying to kill her. “I’m not allowed any caffeine, because it dehydrates the throat, and I had laryngitis about a month and a half ago, so I’ve had to cut all these things out to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” she smiles, turning her head toward her publicist. “So I had to get up at 10 to 4, go over to the ['Today'] studio, and while everyone else was drinking their delicious black coffee, everyone was doing Starbucks runs, and I was asking for hot water. It was so boring.” And it’s a bit of a shame that Adele, now 22 and two years removed from her upset wins at the 51st Grammy Awards , is being denied coffee, because she certainly needs it. On Tuesday, she’ll release her sophomore album, the jaw-dropping 21 (so named because it reflected her very tumultuous 21st year on earth) here in the States. Thanks to a tidal wave of critical acclaim — and stirring singles like “Rolling in the Deep” — she has already been tipped as the year’s can’t-miss act. She recently filmed an episode of VH1′s “Unplugged,” and in May, she’ll launch a full-blown tour of the U.S. But for right now, she’s enjoying the moment (even without caffeine), delighting in the reviews she’s gotten here in the U.S. (“In the States, even a bad review is like a five-star U.K. review,” she laughs) and trying very hard not to believe the hype — which, if you know anything about her, is a lot easier than you might think. “I think people think I’m, like, sort of a manic-depressive. I think they think I’m very somber and very moody and take myself very seriously, but I think that’s just because [of] the kind of records I write,” she says. “But also, like, everyone is a bit moody and somber sometimes, just that I write about mine, so therefore it’s magnified. I’m no more depressed than any other 21-, 22 year-old-girl when someone leaves them, you know?” And it should be noted that she has absolutely no problem discussing that depression, which came at the end of a relationship with a man “who meant everything to her” and influenced just about every aspect of 21, from kiss-offs like “Deep” and “Rumour Has It” to heartbreaking album-closer “Someone Like You.” “Well, I wrote that song because I was exhausted from being such a bitch, with ‘Rolling in the Deep’ or ‘Rumor Has It,’ ” she laughs. “I was really emotionally drained from the way I was portraying him, because even though I’m very bitter and regret some parts of it, he’s still the most important person that’s ever been in my life, and ‘Someone Like You,’ I had to write it to feel OK with myself and OK with the two years I spent with him. And when I did it, I felt so freed.” Empowered by that freedom, she was able to return to her (relatively) normal life, one that, despite the accolades and the chart-topping success back home in the U.K. (and most of Europe), she says isn’t all that different from any other 22-year-old’s existence, despite what you might have gathered from her music. “Whenever I meet anyone, whether it’s someone I’m working with or a fan or something, they can never link me with the person they think I am,” she says. “But I like that. I’m 22, I’m sarcastic, very boisterous and cheeky. I like to have a bit of a joke.” Are you looking forward to Adele’s new album? Let us know in the comments! Related Artists Adele
