Robbie Daw | October 4, 2010 - 1:40 pm

Welsh songbird Duffy, who scored a modest hit two years ago with her soulful (but antiseptic) “Mercy”, is back with a new collection of songs.

Formerly Wealthy Musicians Now Just Rich, Thanks To The Craptastic Economy

Maura | April 24, 2009 - 10:30 am

The Times Of London’s annual Rich List has had the odd effect of proving that stars are, at their core, just like us–because they’ve affected by the global economic meltdown, too. Elton John’s net worth? Down 26%! Tom Jones? Off 24%! In fact, only three music-related entities on the British paper’s Rich List, which ranks… More »

Making A Movie Soundtrack: No Old Dudes Invited

Dan Gibson | September 26, 2008 - 1:00 am

If a studio chose to make a film from your novel, I’d imagine you’d be somewhat protective of the final product, down to the musical choices. Then again, if you’re a novelist who enjoys albums that came out before the Duffy record, your opinions about the soundtrack will probably be summarily ignored by the people… More »

Duffy’s Going To Get An Angry Phone Call From Doug Morris

Dan Gibson | July 29, 2008 - 1:30 am

Hey, Duffy! You’re one of the music business’s few successes this year, and you have 2008’s top selling album in Britain. So why not go ahead and promote illegal downloads? Oddly, the Welsh singer, for whom I haven’t had much affection in the past, makes more sense than most on the issue. More »

This Just In: Americans Enjoy Listening To Lil Wayne While Possibly Getting Inebriated

Dan Gibson | July 15, 2008 - 4:00 am

We love charts here at Idolator, but sometimes they can be so elitist. Who cares what critics think, or what the program directors of America feel like shoving down peoples’ throats? We want to know: What are the people demanding to hear? What songs inspire people to vote with their wallets, making them insert a… More »
