For 'Miss Saigon' Icon Lea Salonga, Art And Politics Are Always Intertwined
Huffington Post - 10 months
Twenty-six years after “Miss Saigon” made her a Broadway icon, Lea Salonga is eager to push boundaries once more. That’s most apparent when you hear her perform a stripped-down version of “Blurred Lines,” which also happens to be the title track of her new live album, released May 5.  If the thought of the woman who provided the singing voices of two Disney princesses (Jasmine and Mulan) crooning Robin Thicke’s controversial 2013 hit is surprising, that’s perfectly fine by her. “It’s all about intent. I think it’s different when a woman sings that song,” Salonga told HuffPost. Once her musical director, Larry Yurman, had worked out a suitable arrangement, the song “didn’t seem predatory or misogynistic,” she said. “It became something interesting, and I enjoyed singing it. It’s always a fun time, especially when people start getting a little tipsy.” The Tony-winning singer-actress explores a number of different musical genres on “Blurred Lines,” which was recorded live at N...

U2 Sued For Allegedly Stealing 'The Fly' From British Songwriter
Huffington Post - 12 months
A British songwriter and guitarist has sued U2, claiming the band stole one of his works for a song on its blockbuster 1991 album “Achtung Baby.” In a complaint filed on Monday night in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Paul Rose sought at least $5 million in damages from U2 lead singer Bono and bandmates The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr., as well as Island Records. Rose, who said he has a dozen of his own albums, said the Irish band lifted “signature elements” of his copyrighted song “Nae Slappin” for its hit song “The Fly.” He said this occurred at a time U2, then arguably the world’s most popular rock band, was seeking a “stark departure” from its trademark sound. Rose said he gave a demo tape of “Nae Slappin” to Island in 1989, the same year the label signed U2, and that “The Fly” incorporated its guitar solo and other elements, including distortion and “industrial-style” percussion. Rose said ordinary listeners “would reasonably fi...
