Stevie Wonder Welcomes 9th Child!

54th 'Jazz A Juan' Festival - Day 8

Steve Wonder has another thing to sing about!

The pop star welcomed his NINTH child into the world today; his second child with girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. Us Weekly confirms that the little girl is healthy and that the baby is named Nia, alluding to “purpose,” one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa.

Wonder, 64, has seven other kids from previous relationships, and Wonder confirmed that he and his girlfriend were expecting another child during an appearance on The View last month. Wonder joked, “I got, how many, 22 kids?” before clarifying, “It’s not true. The truth is we’re going to have a wonderful daughter, born in December, [and her] name is going to be Nia, which is ‘purpose.'”

Aww, I love that he has a sense of humor about his kiddies, and the name is personal to Wonder’s heart.  Congrats Stevie Wonder!

Taylor Swift Talks Spotify

Z100's Jingle Ball 2014

Taylor Swift knows how to take a stand.

It’s probably easy for her to do, as she’s basically the world’s biggest pop star AND first female artist to have back-to-back No. 1 singles on Billboard‘s Hot 100 (“Shake It Off” and “Blank Space,” if you’ve been living under a rock the last two months). But the fact is, it was a risky decision NOT to stream 1989 on Spotify, which is now the most popular listening service on the web.  Her controversial action has become a bastion in the debate over fair royalties during the digital age.

“I didn’t think that it would be shocking to anyone,” says Swift via The Hollywood Reporter. “With as many ways as artists are personalizing their musical distribution, it didn’t occur to me that this would be anything that anyone would talk about. But I could never have expected so many text messages, emails and phone calls from other artists, writers and producers saying thank you.”

I do, Taylor! I feel like royalties on your music must be the sweetest 25th birthday present of all. That being said, I also think your music should be available to the masses. Where do you, fine readers, stand on this debate?

Sony Cancels Theatrical Release of “The Interview”

Celebrities Visit "Good Morning America"

Wow, who thought it would come to this?

Sony Pictures Entertainment has pulled the planned Christmas Day release of “The Interview,” linking the dangerous threats and leaks to a cyber terrorist group linked to North Korea. According to Variety:

“We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public,” Sony said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.”

In announcing the decision to cancel the holiday debut, Sony also stated that the hackers have been making the lives of Sony workers terrible for weeks.

“Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like,” the statement reads.

A few hours post-announcement, a studio spokesman said that Sony had “no further plans” to release the comedy, either on VOD or DVD.

A 42 million dollar movie, gone? Perhaps. The fact is, it would have been hard for theaters to logically screen the movie if they thought it posed a threat to the safety of their patrons (and that definitely seems like a concern- the movie was due out on Christmas).  What do you think? Did Sony do the right thing?
