Paul McCartney will not collect Israel's Wolf Prize

Former Beatle Paul McCartney announced on Thursday that he would not be coming to Israel later this month to receive the Wolf Award for Music, which he received in February.

"It's very flattering and I'm grateful to have been chosen for the Wolf Music Award this year," McCartney said, according to the Haaretz newspaper. "It's definitely a great honor for me to be among the best artists, creators, scientists and writers in history today, but after reviewing my agenda, I have to announce that I will not be able to reach the set date. "

The prestigious Wolf Award was founded in 1975. It was awarded in five fields, four in science and one in arts, in a fixed rotation.

The music prize will be awarded to McCartney and Adam Fischer, conductor and human rights defender; the price of agriculture to Prof. Gene Robinson of the University of Illinois for leading the genome revolution in the biology of honey bee populations; the Chemistry Prize to Prof. Makuto Fujita from Tokyo University and Prof. Omar Yaghi of the University of California at Berkeley for his contributions to supramolecular chemistry.

Last month, actress Natalie Portman revealed that she would not have arrived in Israel to receive the Genesis Award. The US-Israeli double citizen said in a statement that he had canceled his arrival when he learned that Netanyahu was to speak at the ceremony.

Selena Gomez Is Playing A Mom In Her New Movie

Selena Gomez's newest role? Mom.

As Cosmopolitan reports, Gomez will play a pregnant young woman in her new movie, In Dubious Battle.

In the first trailer for the Great Depression-era drama, fans get to see Gomez play the daughter of a migrant worker who goes into labor during a worker's strike, making for a lot of concerned faces.

Don't worry though, she does get a line. As we hear her say in a perfect country twang, "All I want is a simple, clean life." Not to mention there's a shot of holding her little baby — perfectly, might we add.

The film has Gomez re-teaming with her Spring Breakers co-star James Franco, who wrote and directed this new film, an adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel of the same name. This is all part of Franco's Dust Bowl Trilogy, which includes Of Mice and Men and The Grapes Of Wrath.

Perhaps as surprising as Gomez playing a mom is the fact that Franco plays the man who helps her give birth. No, we don't think he's playing Alien — or, at least we hope not.

In Dubious Battle, which also features The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson and Paper Towns' Nat Wolff, has its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

Paul McCartney, “See Your Sunshine” From Memory Almost Full (2007): One Track Mind

Wrapped in a very public and bitter divorce, Paul McCartney embraced everything he did matter in the first place in the burning memory almost full, published on June 5, 2007. That's perhaps more than ever in this terrible setback.

Overall, the album took more in retrospect that bitter introspection expected. It is fully realized in "See Your Sunshine" a cunning Alas tune redo ending as anachronistic but somehow more attractive way of registration.

Background vocals, bright and cyclic, as strongly reminiscent of Denny Laine and late wife Linda as for completely new transport in 1976. ("Silly Love Songs", after all, went to No. 1 during the last week of May of that year.) This is the kind of pure pop that Paul McCartney became a soundtrack immediately after the ugly decade Beatles own division. And just as welcome.

Memory Almost Full, as a group of very committed fans discovered, was an anagram of "my soul mate LLM", the initials of Linda Louise McCartney. Asked the question, Paul would have said: "Some things are better left a mystery." But he is not one of them. Paul McCartney is supposed to sound just like the song.

That meets that standard, so fully inhabits its own cliché, for a period of overwhelming adversity is part of the charm of Paul. Always it has been.

That said, "See Your Sunshine" is not necessarily representative of Memory Almost Full, who insisted (on grinding industrial riff, the "Vintage Clothes") that we should "live in the past. Not cling to something that is changing quickly "Nostalgia Comfy but also fit with the then recent departure of Paul McCartney Capitol - where, after all, had been recorded since the early 60s McCartney subsequently signed with a stamp of Starbucks for this, his solo CD 21, and He agreed to release Memory Almost Full, for the first time in digital format on the website.

Still, it was comforting to know that just as Paul McCartney tried to embrace this new world daredevil, who had not forgotten what came before. In a statement released in advance of the album chart, McCartney said the title came after the "Memory Almost Full" message appeared on her cell phone. "In modern life," he wrote, "our brains can get a bit overloaded".

Is Kanye West’s New Song Based On This Obscure, 45-Year-Old Outtake From Paul McCartney?

After months of fragments filtered, assisted flamethrower in action BRIT Awards last week, and the wide circulation within rip this afternoon, you can finally hear the full studio version of Kanye West "All Day" then iHeartRadio through.

 Is "All Day" based on the output connection oldMcCartney "When the wind blows"?

While the studio version, for the most part, the live version approach, departs most dramatically in the last minute. While the song seems designed to be from album "Ni ** as in Paris" as favorite club (even repeated "ball" of the hit / rhymes "mall" and "that shit cray" chorus), the last minute decision an abrupt left turn in the acoustic strumming and whistles. Although it is the last thing you'd expect at a track like this, which actually comes courtesy of new frequent collaborator Paul McCartney (as confirmed by rapper and singer Theophilus London, which also features on the track), when McCartney had his own first child with his wife Linda.

You can hear Paul tell the whole story behind the interlude below, but here's the rub. Paul says that while circling in the hospital after birth, he was looking at a Picasso painting of an old man playing guitar (presumably Old Guitarist), when he realized that the man was playing a chord that uses "... only two fingers." He tried to recreate the rope, and he thought it sounded good, so I tried to write a whole song around this issue with two fingers.

He later recorded the song during sessions Ram as a guitar track and gentle hissing flame was never released, but recordings have found their way online "When the wind blows."

Although the 45-year-old chord progression is barely recognizable when sung in "Monster" in the style of layered vocals and played synth bass, also appears to be the basis for progression own chords "All Day" on all. I did West and McCartney, who also recorded the ballad of parents "Only One" together, bond over memories of their first child, and end this? What is really cray is that this old lullaby of a song would, after decades, to join the new club banger Kanye West.

Kanye West and Paul McCartney seem to be a match made in musical heaven and looks like we're about to get even more of this unlikely duo but-impressive, according to longtime friend and barber Yeezy, Ibn Jasper.

"All new Kanye album is co-produced with Paul McCartney," Jasper said in a commentary Instagram.

McCartney and West basically broke the Internet as a cover of Kim K with his last two collaborations. The last cut, "FourFiveSeconds" which fell on Saturday (January 24), is likely to be on the album Yeezy, but can also appear in another highly anticipated effort.
