Random music news for Wednesday, May 22, 2024

It looks like we’ve entered a period of slow music news as the US gears up for the Memorial Day long weekend. Here’s what I managed to pull together for May 22, 2024.

  1. Oasis reunion rumours are in overdrive again. It doesn’t take much to set them off, does it?
  2. Diddy streams have dropped way down since all those assault allegations.
  3. Peloton has banned Diddy’s music.
  4. Toronto is already freaking out about the Taylor Swift-related traffic this November.
  5. Wait: Graceland is up for sale? And what’s this about fraud? (Via Christopher)
  6. This is satire, people! SATIRE! It’s funny, though. (And then there’s this bakery.)
  7. AC/DC’s entire first show from their new European tour has been posted.
  8. On that topic, chatbots have ingested a LOT of human-created data. Copyright holders now want their cut. This is a big, big deal. Just ask Scarlett Johannson about what happened to her.
  9. Yoko Ono has listed this New York apartment. She and John bought it in 1971.
  10. Book publishers are really mad at Spotify for the way the company is handling audiobooks.
  11. Lenny Kravitz is the latest guy to get a Las Vegas residency.
  12. Shouldn’t someone talk to Drake about his gambling problem? (He lost more than $500,000 on the Fury vs. Usyk fight.)
  13. What else can you say but “Oops.”
  14. Want to buy the actual lighted dancefloor from Saturday Night Fever? You can.

BONUS: Meanwhile, on German network TV…
