Having a chat with Q magazine, the ‘Traveller’s Chant’ hitmakers first touch on the topic of bees, with Jordan from the band being broadly favourable regarding the notorious pollen stans.

“Bees are almost honourable, man,” he muses. “Firstly they create some sweet, sweet honey. Which is fucking GREAT. Thanks, bees, for the honey. And if they sting you they die, so when it comes to stinging, they’re really passionate about what they do.”

Warming to the theme, he continues: ”They’re like passionate artists. Bees are like painters. All they do is give and give and give, and sometimes they give too much.”

But it’s bad news for wasps.

“Wasps on the other hand are just cunts. No honey, no passion, they just go around stinging children just because they can. They’re fucking dickheads.”

But Jordan provides a surprising response to the question of whether he would rather be a bee or a wasp. ”I suppose given the choice I’d like to be a focused missile kind of wasp, just stinging the shit out of other cunts. Jeremy Clarkson in the eye. BANG! Fuck you!”

As for Harley?

“I’ve got a phobia of wasps.”

Timbaland reckons Missy Elliott’s new single is a “game-changer” http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/timbaland-reckons-missy-elliotts-new-single-is-a-game-changer/129607/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/timbaland-reckons-missy-elliotts-new-single-is-a-game-changer/129607/#comments Wed, 30 Jul 2014 08:04:20 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129607 missy_elliott_horse-1

According to Timbaland, ’9th Inning’ hitmaker Missy Elliott’s new single, which is produced by one Timothy Z Mosley, is a “game-changer”.

“It’s coming,” he confirmed to Rolling Stone when asked about the single’s whereabouts. ”It’s on her. She got the first single, it’s just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun. We have the game-changer right there.”

Asked to describe it in more detail, he added: ”It’s something you ain’t never heard Missy do. It sounds today, but the future.”

Banjo and a donk then.

“we are doing a mixtape…. its gonna be very cool.. first single is called “take you there” w kiesza i wanna try and get a stream of it out this week.”

So there we go.

Form an orderly queue. Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett’s new single is now on iTunes http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/form-an-orderly-queue-lady-gaga-and-tony-bennetts-new-single-is-now-on-itunes/129594/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/form-an-orderly-queue-lady-gaga-and-tony-bennetts-new-single-is-now-on-itunes/129594/#comments Tue, 29 Jul 2014 16:53:18 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129594 Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett’s big band (it certainly should be) spectacular ‘Anything Goes’ is now available to purchase on iTunes.

Unfortunately you can even buy it in the UK.

Here’s the link should you need it.

The song itself only last for just over two minutes, so that’s something.

Here’s what appears to be the video.

Well done everybody!

A bit of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett singing a song is now online http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/a-bit-of-lady-gaga-and-tony-bennett-singing-a-song-is-now-online/129562/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/a-bit-of-lady-gaga-and-tony-bennett-singing-a-song-is-now-online/129562/#comments Tue, 29 Jul 2014 08:29:25 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129562 Lady Gaga

CALLING ‘BIG BAND’ FANS: Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett really have made an album together – still only rumoured to be called ‘Cheek To Cheek’ – and now a bit of the first single is online.

It’s a cover of ‘Anything Goes’, obviously.

That image above is the song’s ‘cover art’, shot by Steven Klein, while below is a snippet of the song.

The duo discussed details of the forthcoming album – which apparently took two years to record – in between filming a TV special last night in New York, with the ‘Venus’ hitmaker having this to say about it all: ”You know, it’s funny, but jazz comes a little more comfortable for me than pop music, than R&B music.”

Great to hear! Do go on.

“I’ve sang jazz since I was 13 years old, which is kind of like my little secret that Tony found out. So this is almost easier for me than anything else.”

The album is rumoured to be out in October so that’s something to look forward to, right?

A couple of demos recorded for Madonna’s ‘Erotica’ album are now online http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/a-couple-of-demos-recorded-for-madonnas-erotica-album-are-now-online/129551/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/a-couple-of-demos-recorded-for-madonnas-erotica-album-are-now-online/129551/#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 08:38:44 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129551 Madonna New

Two ‘Erotica’-era Madonna demos have appeared in full on the world wide web.

As MuuMuse points out both ‘You Are The One’ and ‘Shame’ appeared on the fan-created ‘The Rain Tapes‘, which as the name suggests was released on cassette tape, but this is the first time these two songs have emerged online so it’s really just a question of someone having recently digitised a box of tapes they found in the loft but news is news.

You can listen to the ‘slightly 90s’ ‘You Are The One’ by pressing play below:

And here’s ‘Shame’:

Both songs were co-written by Shep Pettibone and Tony Shimkin.

Hilary Duff bloody loves ‘Boom Clap’ and didn’t know she’d turned it down http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/hilary-duff-bloody-loves-boom-clap-and-didnt-know-shed-turned-it-down/129532/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/hilary-duff-bloody-loves-boom-clap-and-didnt-know-shed-turned-it-down/129532/#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:04:34 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129532 hilary-duff-2014

Look, Hilary Duff wasn’t even aware that Charli XCX had even offered her ‘Boom Clap’ in the first place.

She says words to that effect in an exclusive interview with Popjustice, which’ll be going online later today and also features various interesting pieces of frank and funny chat regarding the singer’s recently-announced return to pop via a big new deal with RCA.

The background to the ‘Boom Clap’ story is that last month Charli told Popjustice how she was initially disappointed (or more precisely “really bummed out”) that Hilary’s people knocked back the song.

“I didn’t know that I had an option to have it,” Hilary says now. “It’s my favourite song on the radio right now.”

“I remember there was talk about my label trying to get us to write together and it was in New York and I was flying home so I didn’t have time to have a session with her. I am literally obsessed with that song and I didn’t know that it was an option for me.”

All might not be lost, however. “If she wants to give it to me now,” Hilary adds, “I’ll still take it!”

She is, of course, joking – her new album’s finished, she seems very happy with it and the first single ‘Chasing The Sun’ is ready to go.

Stay tuned to Popjustice for the full interview which we’ll be putting online later for the benefit of Hilary’s American fans who, as you read this, are probably still in bed.
