Here are some bits of news from today worth noting before we hit the hay:
50 Cent’s VP of digital marketing, Chris “Broadway” Romero, talked about how he created thisis50.com as a way to promote 50 Cent’s beefs with other rappers and he modeled the site after President Obama’s campaign. Check out the full article at the Village Voice (via NY Mag).
Michel Gondry told Ain’t It Cool News that Beck insisted he direct his “Cellphone’s Dead” video to prove his friendship. Gondry: “at some point he slammed his fist on the table and said, ‘If you want to work with me, say it! Or if you don’t want to work with me, say it!’”
Part 5 of Bill Flanagan’s Bob Dylan interview is on the Huffington Post. Dylan talks about his favorite songwriters and leaks that his new album Together Through Life was mostly co-written by Robert Hunter (a detail later confirmed by his rep to RS).
David Lynch and Moby are bromancing a bit. The pair sat down for a little Q&A about Moby’s new album and Lynch dropped an animated video for the first single, “Shot In the Back of the Head.” Lynch seems a little jealous of Moby’s 19th century art pad and Moby’s gaze gets lost in the woods of Lynch’s full head of hair (via The Daily Swarm and The Playlist).
