Lana Del Rey Talks Miles Kane Collab, “More Socially Aware” New Album

In a statement that accompanied the release of her new single “Love,” Lana Del Rey said, “I made my first 4 albums for me, but this one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed.” And in a new interview with BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, she expands on that remark: I started out thinking that the whole record was gonna have a ’50s/’60s feeling, like some kind of Shangri-Las, early Joan Baez influences. But as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that. So because of that, the sound just got really updated, and I felt like it was more wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience that I have. I guess it’s just a little more socially aware. It’s kind of a global feeling. In the interview, she also discusses the…Read More

Japanese Interpreter: Translating Trump Word For Word Makes Us ‘Sound Stupid’

Donald Trump says things that can defy description—and that’s proving a challenge for translators around the globe. Tokyo-based translator Chikako Tsuruta told the Japan Times that translating the president into Japanese is a challenge, what with the lack of logic or concern for facts. “[Trump] rarely speaks logically, and he only emphasizes one side of things as if it were the absolute truth,” Tsuruta said. “There are lots of moments when I suspected his assertions were factually dubious.” Tsuruta, who has worked for CNN, ABC and CBS, says Trump’s hyperbolic rhetorical style puts her and translators like her at risk of a kind of guilt by association. “He is so overconfident and yet so logically unconvincing that my interpreter friends and I often joke that if we translated his words as they are, we would end up making ourselves sound stupid,” Tsuruta said. Another challenge interpreters face: rendering Trump’s disjointed speech patterns.…Read More

Thanks for stopping by! You can find the full post where we found it HERERuth B. ranked as one of 2016’s break-out pop stars thanks to “Lost Boy,” a simple piano ballad that originally began life as a six-second Vine. The micro-anthem became so popular that she decided to release a full version independently and soon landed in the top 100 on iTunes. It didn’t take long for Columbia Records to step in and a rerelease caught fire at radio — propelling the song all the way to number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and double platinum status. She returns today (February 24) with “Superficial Love,” an introduction to her upcoming debut LP.
