…There’s no blog I’d rather be.
Ahh, another bank holiday weekend – and the weather’s rubbish! No change there then.
Good show today – no change there then ;)
No, actually we checked out a few important issues – like this China thing that means 100 songs have been “banned”. Hits by Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Katy Perry and Take That are among 100 songs placed on an internet blacklist by the Ministry of Culture in China. Music websites have been given until 15 September to remove the offending tracks, which are seen as harming ”national cultural security”. Those that fail to do so risk being prosecuted. The internet in China is tightly controlled, with content deemed inappropriate often blocked or removed. A notice posted on the ministry’s website said the 100 songs had not been submitted for official approval. Most of the banned songs are from Taiwan or Hong Kong, with several from Japan. Six tracks by Lady Gaga are banned. The list also includes a track by the Backstreet Boys which was released more than a decade ago. Maybe could we get Jedward banned? ;)
Quite impressed this week too, I’ve had tweets from some really nice celebs – including Andi Peters, Sarah Millican, and the legend that is Marcus Bentley – that’s the bloke who does the voiceovers for Big Brother. Am I sad to be so impressed?
90 minute lyric was “Some of them want to use you Some of them want to get used by you” – Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams obviously :)
