Seven years ago, Rolling Stone interviewed Real World co-creator Jonathan Murray about the newest season of the groundbreaking MTV reality show. At the end, we ran an idea past him: “[Thinking] back to that original cast in New York, it would be nice to see something with them again. Maybe put them all back into a loft for a week.” He was a little skeptical. “I don’t know doing it that way is best, and I’m not sure they’d be willing to do it,” he said at the time. “I’m not sure the current audience on MTV is interested in seeing a reunion of those people.” He was right that the current MTV audience likely has little interest in seeing a bunch of middle-aged people move back into a New York City loft they called home nearly three decades ago. But CBS All Access, which is rebranding as Paramount+ , is built around nostalgic revivals like Star Trek: Picard, The Twilight Zone , and the upcoming Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years. With The Real World coming up on that … [Read more...] about ‘The Real World’ Co-Creator Jonathan Murray on the New York ‘Homecoming’

Rolling Stone interview series Unknown Legends features long-form conversations between senior writer Andy Greene and veteran musicians who have toured and recorded alongside icons for years, if not decades. All are renowned in the business, but some are less well known to the general public. Here, these artists tell their complete stories, giving an up-close look at life on music’s A list. This edition features backup vocalist Dolette McDonald. When Dolette McDonald walked into the Talking Heads rehearsal space shortly before the launch of their 1980 Remain in Light world tour, she had no idea that her life was about to change forever. The band had hired her sight unseen as its first backup vocalist even though her main experience was singing in the church and on a handful of disco records. She’d never heard a note of their music and didn’t know who any of them were, but she instantly integrated herself into their world and became an incredible onstage foil for David Byrne, … [Read more...] about Backup Singer Dolette McDonald on Her Years With Talking Heads, the Police, and Don Henley

One wonders what Notorious B.I.G would have thought about smartphones. The late New York MC, who is the subject of a new Netflix documentary titled Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell, was an eager evangelist of the humble camcorder. Early on in the documentary, his longtime friend Damion “D-Roc” Butler explains how Biggie instructed him to capture the audiences at their concerts. The resulting footage is electric — a preserved vision of a hip-hop golden era, shown from the vantage point of one of its most culturally influential stars. By now, grainy archival footage is a hallmark of the growing genre of music documentary, but here it serves a more imperative function. Biggie’s story is one that’s been told, retold, and repackaged as a part of our cultural imagination, a straight line from “Big Poppa” to beefing with Tupac to his eventual murder in 1997. The flattened narrative of East Coast versus West Coast rap has served, mostly, to obscure the man Biggie was. Throughout … [Read more...] about ‘Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell’ Avoids the Trap of Mythology

Although he had hopes of returning to the show, he didn't and Devoleena Bhattacharjee was sent as his proxy. Devoleena received a lot of criticism as people thought she was not the right proxy for Eijaz. Also, many including Eijaz were disappointed as he didn't re-enter the house. While talking to Spotboye, Eijaz revealed the real reason why he couldn't re-enter and also gave his opinion about the proxy system. The actor said that he didn't understand the proxy system. Also, since he hadn't seen any episode post his exit, he won't be able to comment on Devoleena's game. However, he also said that it is not fair to expect Devoleena to act like him just because she was his proxy. Eijaz was quoted by the portal as saying, "I didn't see a single episode, so I can't comment on that. But ye proxy ka system hi mujhe samajh nahi … [Read more...] about BB 14’s Eijaz Khan: How Can We Expect Devoleena To Enter & Start Behaving Like Me Because She’s My Proxy?
