Did You Hear?

:: British soul/rock legend Joe Cocker passed away yesterday (December 22) at the age of 70. He finally succumbed to a long battle with lung cancer. The singer leaves behind a loving family and a discography full of classic hits including 1982 chart-topper “Up Where We Belong” and “You Are So Beautiful.” [Billboard]

:: Iggy Azalea is one hell of a girlfriend. She gave boyfriend Nick Young a 1962 Chevy Impala for Christmas — valued at a cool $100,000. He posted pictures of the car on Instagram and wrote: “My boo so dope!!!!! thanks for the Christmas gift #LoveYou You Go Girl.” Hopefully, he already bought her something nice, or it’s time to do some last-minute shopping!

:: Who knew Dollywood could be so dangerous? Dolly Parton is being sued after a couple of guests at her theme park allegedly suffered brain damage and broken bones after being thrown from a giant revolving swing. They are asking for $450,000 in compensation. [TMZ]

:: Well, this kind of stings. Legendary singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell doesn’t have a lot of nice things to say about modern artists or our generation as a whole. “Talent no longer means that much to the record companies because it doesn’t mean that much to this generation that doesn’t seem to have much talent.” Consider all of us clocked.
