Kings Of Leon Doc Director Unfazed By Band’s Drama

‘They’re family,’ ‘Talihina Sky’ helmer Stephen Mitchell says, confident that Kings will regroup after canceling U.S. tour. By James Montgomery Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon Photo: Theo Wargo/ WireImage For all the unedited, un-sober moments in the Kings of Leon ‘s “Talihina Sky” documentary (and there are a lot of them), none stands out quite like frontman Caleb Followill’s bleary-eyed, whiskey-and-marijuana-soaked confessional, which unspools toward the end of the film and is a jaw-dropper, to say the very least. When the film premiered back in April, the scene stuck in most folks’ memories because it was so unfiltered — Followill makes no attempt to hide the fact that he’s rifling through inebriants, which is noteworthy since he and his bandmates executive-produced the film and surely had final say over what made the cut and what didn’t. But given the events of the past few weeks, as the Kings canceled their U.S. tour after Followill’s bizarre (and, many seem to think, drunken ) onstage behavior at a show in Dallas , the footage takes on a decidedly darker tone … and hints that perhaps the frontman’s problems go much deeper than “exhaustion,” as the band claimed in their cancellation statement. So, with “Talihina” set to premiere August 21 on Showtime, MTV Radio spoke to its director, Stephen Mitchell, about that notorious scene and whether he now regrets keeping it in the film. “No, and for the record, I might have been more drunk and stoned than Caleb during that interview,” Mitchell laughed. “That was a night he and I sat down, actually it was during the Only By the Night sessions, and after working in the studio all day, he said, ‘I want you to come over to the house and let’s sit down.’ … I think it was an amazing conversation, and I think there’s a lot of the film that, looking back, [I] have regrets about showing this or doing that. We made our decisions a while ago and we’re sticking to them and living with them. “But sure, they’re my friends, and I care about them, and a lot of this is hard for me to watch and I’m sure it’s very hard for them to watch too,” he added. “So, I guess the only thing I can say is we put the honesty out there and hopefully people at least respect the boys for not bullsh—ing them.” Mitchell — who has known the Followills since the early 2000s, when they were first working toward a record contract in Nashville — said that while he hasn’t spoken to the band since they scrapped their tour, he’s not worried about their future. Nor did he find the reaction of Caleb’s brother Jared (who took his brother to task on Twitter following the Dallas show) to be anything out of the ordinary. After all, this is a band of brothers — and a cousin — first and foremost. “That’s the way they always were. Listen, I wasn’t down there, I haven’t even had a chance to talk to the guys yet … about what the heck happened. But I think some of the draw to these guys is that they are brothers and cousins; there’s a magnetism to that,” he said. “They say anything and everything to each other, and it is how they sort of work things out internally; they’re very vocal. And I had to learn a long time ago that they’re not yelling at each other, they’re just communicating, and it’s loud. And sometimes the stuff they say to each other … you’ve got to have some thick skin to be walking around with those guys.” Mitchell said that it’s that familial bond that has helped them through tough times in the past … and will undoubtedly help them navigate through their current drama too. “It’s a fabric of the band, the roots of the band, they’re family, and I think that’s a reason that they’ve been able to find a common ground to stick together and make five albums over, what, eight-plus years?” he said. “That’s really hard to do. There’s not many bands making two albums, let alone five, during that time … and I’m not a band spokesperson, I can’t speak for them, they make the great music, but I believe in them and I think the family side of it will be the same reason we end up seeing more great shows and hearing more great albums from them in the future.”

There have been speeches in the Senate this day that have caused me to consider the future of this nation and the lengths I would go to preserve it. There are men and women who have no more right to stand in that chamber and campaign for their re-election than does a beggar have a right to ask for money for drugs. I did, at one point, consider a plea to the nation but I feared it would be drowned out… Broadcasting platform : YouTube Source : The Lonely Conservative Discovery Date : 31/07/2011 00:18 Number of articles : 7

Chris Brown Has ‘All The Characteristics,’ Says Jay Rock

‘The dude can dance, sing and rap … he’s a talented young brother,’ Jay Rock says of his ‘Westside’ collabo with Brown. By Rob Markman Jay Rock Photo: MTV News Jay Rock is known to keep it gangsta, but on “Westside,” a track off of his debut album Follow Me Home, the Watts, Los Angeles, MC slows it down with Chris Brown on the hook. The song, produced by Tha Bizness, serves as an ode to the allure of Hollywood. “Basically, it’s just tellin’ a young chick, if you wanna come to the West Coast, we’ll book you a flight. Come hang out with us and have a good time,” Rock told MTV News. “It’s a wonderful record. It’s for the ladies.” Brown, who is known for chart toppers like 2005′s breakout single “Run It” and his current hit “Look at Me Now,” didn’t have a chemistry problem with underground fave Jay Rock. In fact, the rapper says that the union came together rather easily. “That’s my dude, I done seen him a couple of times in the streets and holla’d at him. We exchanged numbers and we kept in touch,” Jay said. “He’s a busy dude and he was doin’ a video and I was like, ‘Man I got this record.’ He was like, ‘All right man, when I get finished doing this video, I’m going to go to the studio and come through.’ And it was just like that.” Once in the studio, Brown laid down his vocals in no time. “He did the hook within 15-20 minutes. That dude, he grinds and he had other stuff that he had to do, but he still [did it].” The result is a smooth, breezy tune whose lyrics invite a lover for a Westside rendezvous. And while fans may find the pairing of CB and Jay Rock a bit surprising, the rapper can’t say enough about his multitalented collaborator. “The thing is, that dude, he’s talented,” he said. “The dude can dance, sing and rap. He got all the characteristics and he’s a talented young brother. I can respect him.” Related Artists Chris Brown Jay Rock

Future Is Tagged For MTV Jams’ Fab 5

‘I’m a trendsetter. The Future is now,’ rapper tells MTV News. By Rob Markman, with reporting by James Smith Future Photo: MTV News The future is unpredictable, but Nayvadius “Future” Cash is taking all bets. The Atlanta spitter broke out in late 2010, appearing on YC’s club hit “Racks” and segueing into rap’s collective conscious with his own party starter “Watch This.” Known for his repetitive and catchy hooks, plus his melodic bars, Future has earned himself a spot on MTV Jams’ 2011 Fab 5 roster. Conceived in 2005 on MTV Jams, the Fab 5 is a collection of the year’s most outstanding new hip-hop artists who have made a visual impact on the road to releasing their debut albums. Fab 5 alumni include Juelz Santana, Tony Yayo, Paul Wall, Young Jeezy, Kid Cudi, Drake and 2011′s first inductee, Big Sean . This year, MTV Jams, MTV News and Sucker Free will bring you 2011′s hottest new hip-hop upstarts, and they get no hotter than Future! “Future is a painter, very creative, very original. I’m a trendsetter. The Future is now,” the rapper said. Growing up in Atlanta’s Zone 6 section, Future had to look no further than his own family for musical inspiration. As the younger cousin of Organized Noize (Outkast, Goodie Mob) producer Rico Wade, Future soaked up tons of game. “I got the nickname Future from the Dungeon Family,” he said of the collective that is made up of Outkast, Goodie Mob, Organized Noize and others. “My dog G-Rock used to always tell me, ‘You’re the future, you’re the future. You’re young, man. Keep dreamin’ and settin’ new goals and achieving new goals and just reach to the top and stay at the top.’ ” Though he hasn’t quite reached the heights that he plans to, the 25-year-old is well on his way. The Astronaut Kid, as he calls himself, established his sound on a pair of mixtapes he dubbed 1000 and Dirty Sprite. Since then he has been on a tear. Future is now heralded as Atlanta’s biggest young street artist and his latest tape, True Story, reflects his popularity. According to the rapper, all of his material is based on real events that have happened in his life. “Right now we represent music with substance, music that has meaning behind it. It’s just motivational music, everyday life stories and just put it all together on the track,” Future said. “I make music from my soul, so it comes across to my fans the same way. So when it touches them, it touches their soul and it comes across right.” So far it has!
