THE DUO WILL TAKE TO THE STAGE AGAIN FOR A BEATLES TRIBUTE CONCERT.
British pop duo Eurythmics will reunite in Los Angeles later this month for a performance celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, organisers said on Monday.
The duo consisting of singer Annie Lennox and musician Dave Stewart, who last toured together in 2000, will play songs by The Beatles in the Jan 27 concert organised by the Recording Academy, which hands out the annual Grammy Awards. They will also share the stage with R&B singers Alicia Keys and John Legend and pop-rock group Maroon 5 in the concert that will be broadcast on CBS television on Feb 9.
The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles pays homage to the Fab Four's February 1964 performances on the Ed Sullivan Show, which is credited with launching rock music's so-called British Invasion. Pop singer John Mayer and country singer Keith Urban will also perform at the tribute.
Grammy-winning Eurythmics released their first album in 1981 and have sold more than 75 million records. They broke up in 1990 but briefly re-formed to release a new album and tour in 1999. Best known for the 1983 hit Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) and Here Comes The Rain Again a year later, Eurythmics have performed sporadically together in the past decade. -- Reuters

THE SINGER TRIES TO EXPLAIN WHY THE QUALITY OF HER WORK HAS GONE DOWN THE HILL.
Lady Gaga asked for forgiveness from her "monsters" - and even from her album, ARTPOP - in a post justifying the delay in the release of her Do What U Want music video. She also explained away all of her recent failures.
Spoiler alert: they aren't her fault.
The mea culpa came via Gaga's fansite littlemonsters.com, where the former "Mother Monster" and apparently current "Goddess of Love" - to which she also changed her name on Twitter - was equal parts remorseful and accusatory. Gaga pointed the finger over her lackluster 2013 at those who have "betrayed" her, accusing now-former team members of mismanaging her time and health and caring more about money than quality.
"Millions of dollars are not enough for some people," Gaga wrote. "They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more."
Specifically regarding the Do What U Want video delay, the songstress claimed that she was only given one week to plan and execute the piece - the same amount of time she was allotted for Applause.
She called the short window "devastating", adding: "I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for." Gaga lamented that, following a surgery, she was too sick, tired and sad to fight back, bashing those in her corner for not maintaining her best interests. "I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most," she said.
But Gaga promised the flopped album - which sold just 258,000 units in its debut and had the biggest second-week drop of last year - would have a resurrection of sorts. "The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning," the pop star penned.
"Because those who did not care about ARTPOP's success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition." -- Reuters
