  • Bob Dylan Pays Homage to Film Noir in New Video for "The Night We Called It a Day"

    Columbia RecordsThe first official video to a song from Bob Dylan's new standards collection, Shadows in the Night has premiered online.  The stylized black-and-white clip, which accompanies Dylan's rendition of the 1940s ballad "The Night We Called It a Day," pays tribute to the classic film noir pictures of yesteryear.

    The video stars Dylan and actor Robert Davi as two men who apparently are vying for the affections of the same woman, an alluring blonde burlesque dancer portrayed by Tracy Phillips, daughter of former Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips.  After meeting up in a smoky club, the three cross paths again at the woman's apartment and, after a double cross or two, let's just say that things don't end well for most members of the love triangle.

    The clip was directed by Nash Edgerton, an Australian director and stuntman who previously was behind the lens for two other similarly violent Dylan videos, 2009's "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" and 2012's "Duquesne Whistle."

    Shadows in the Night, released February 3, is a collection of 10 vintage songs previously recorded by Frank Sinatra.  Dylan will launch a U.S. tour in support of the album on April 10 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  The trek currently is mapped out through a May 11 show in St. Louis.

    Margaret Norton/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty ImagesCharmayne Maxwell, a member of the group Brownstone, which scored a hit in the mid-1990s with "If You Love Me," has died at the age of 46.

    Her brother, Brandon Maxwell, confirmed her passing in a tweet Saturday: "R.I.P my beautiful sister Charmayne "Maxee" Maxwell. I can't even believe I'm typing this right now. Bad things happened to the most innocent people. My sister died in the most terrible way and I'm in so much pain right now."

    TMZ reports Charmayne's husband, music producer Carsten Soulshock, found her unconscious and bleeding from her neck at their Los Angeles home on Friday night. She'd attended her son's soccer game earlier in the day.

    Maxwell died on the way to the hospital. Los Angeles police reportedly tell TMZ Maxwell suffered a cut on her neck from a broken wine glass.

    Brownstone was nominated for a Grammy for "If You Love Me," a track from their debut album, 1995's From the Bottom Up. The group released one other album, 1997's Still Climbing.

    Brownstone was signed to Michael Jackson's MJJ Music label.

  • Paul McCartney "Not in Any Hurry" to Write an Autobiography, but Says He'd Consider Doing One

    MPL/Mary McCartneyA lot of famous musicians have written memoirs recounting the highlights of their careers and personal lives, but Paul McCartney says he currently has no plans to become one of them.

    The rock legend explained his feelings about whether he'd ever pen an autobiography in the latest installment of the "You Gave Me the Answer" feature on his official website.

    Responding to a question by a Canadian fan, Sir Paul said, "My feeling is that there have been enough books on me done already.  But from time to time I do think of certain little memories that are not published in any books so, who knows?"

    He added, "If I ever find the time it could possibly happen.  But I think you can guess from my answer that I'm not in any hurry to be doing it…!"

    Perhaps the closest McCartney has come to writing a memoir was the 1998 book Many Years from Now, which was penned by Barry Miles and based on hours of exclusive interviews Sir Paul gave to the author.

    Of course, the 72-year-old former Beatle is as busy as ever this year.  He's enjoying his first top 10 single in nearly 30 years thanks to his collaboration with Rihanna and Kanye West, "FourFiveSeconds," he also has a project in the works with Lady Gaga and he'll begin a series of 2015 tour dates in April with a brief Japan trek.

    Vogue honcho Anna Wintour believes that getting fired can actually help you succeed in life. The 65-year-old offers up career advice as part of a new book called Winners: And How They Succeed by Alastair Campbell.

    Anna explains, "Everyone should be sacked at least once in their career because perfection doesn't exist. It's important to have setbacks, because that is the reality of life." She goes on to offer more advice saying, "People work better when they have responsibility. Even if you aren't sure of yourself, pretend that you are, because it makes it clearer for everyone else. Most people prevaricate. I decide fast. I think it's helpful to people who work for you. The world we are in is about instinct and being fast and responding."

    • She was fired from her job as junior fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar back in 1975 after only nine months. She also had jobs at New York magazine, House & Garden, and the UK edition of Vogue before landing her current gig as editor-in-chief at American Vogue.

    Kim Kardashian acknowledges that her selfies are ridiculous but they serve a deeper purpose for her. The reality star appears in the new issue of AdWeek discussing her life on social media and upcoming selfie book, Selfish.

    Kim tells the magazine, "You have to have a sense of humor every once in a while. So many people think that taking so many selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what's so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories. I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people -- that's who I've been. I live my life on a reality show. But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it's ridiculous. I'm kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it's all fun. I can look at a photo on social media and see a picture and know exactly where I was by the outfit I had on or who I was with. I take it more as a fun, emotional scrapbook that I love to look back on."

    • The 34-year-old goes on to discuss her upcoming release saying, "I took my first selfie in 1984, and that opens up the book. For a decade, I've carried a big digital camera, and I think it's just fascinating to see the process of what types of photos evolve. Mine started off on digital cameras, then they went to a BlackBerry and then a smartphone. There's just such an evolution of the selfie. And I captured that, I think, really well."

Jennifer went on to say, "Ben is super busy and I'm super happy for him. I chose to stay home this year and just said, 'Go for it babe. Do it all. Do Gone Girl, do Batman, do The Accountant. Do everything.' I want that for him and I'm happy for him. And he says the same to me. Except that he's really busy. But he understands that when I really have to do it, we figure it out. You'd be amazed how we figure it out. I've never been away for more than I think four days. Maybe once I was gone for my kids for five days...I sit down at the beginning of the movie and say to the people making the schedule, 'Let's look at this.' Then I figure out where I'm going to take the kid and when I can get home."
