Josh Gracin Explains Why He Wanted to Explore His Soulful Side on ‘Good for You’ – “I’ve done a lot of different music over the years. And I felt like I really wanted to do something that was different,” Gracin explained to The Boot on the red carpet before the 2018 CMA Awards. “Not different just for me, but different from anything else that’s on the radio.” Not only was Gracin striving for personal uncharted territory when he recorded “Good for You,” he also wanted to give fans and country radio listeners something a little different than what they might be used to. So, he blended in elements of different genres, and switched up his vocal technique. – “It’s a great fusion of country music, R&B and soul,” he goes on to say of the song. “And I get the chance to do all this stuff vocally — use falsetto and things like that.” Read more at The Boot
Adam Levine Secretly Buys Garner/Affleck Compound in Pacific Palisades – Strange are the real estate ways of the rich and famous. Even though they shelled out nearly $34 million for a grand Beverly Hills mansion less than a year ago, word on the celebrity real estate street, led by gossip juggernaut TMZ, is that rock star Adam Levine and fashion model Behati Prinsloo have dropped another $32 million in a clandestine, late 2018 off-market deal for a sprawling Pacific Palisades, Calif., compound sold by Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Officially divorced in the fall of 2018, Affleck and Garner purchased the just over three-acre Hollywood pedigreed spread from powerhouse super-producer Brian Grazer in 2009 for $17.55 million. – Read more at Variety
Olly Murs reveals he said no to being a judge on The X Factor – Ahead of The Voice’s return this weekend, Olly confirmed Simon Cowell asked him to return to The X Factor last year. Olly told Good Morning Britain: “He did in the summer. Listen, I love Simon, love X Factor, nothing but love for the show. “But just being on The Voice with the coaches, it wasn’t about money. It was more about the chemistry we had as a team. If one of them wasn’t coming back it might have been a different decision. “I just love the show, I love the people on it and they gave me an amazing opportunity as a coach and to help other people. So I’m having a great time on it.” – Read more at Telly Mix
Queen Guitarist Brian May Helped Photograph the Most Distant Space Object Ever Captured on Film – Brian May is known to most as a bonafide rock star, but these days he spends much of his time studying actual stars.
The Queen guitarist earned his Ph.D in astrophysics in 2007, and — when he’s not packing stadiums with his Adam Lambert-fronted band — he serves as a member of the team behind NASA’s New Horizons space probe. Since its launch 12 year ago, the craft has reached the Kuiper Belt in the outer reaches of the solar system, and on Tuesday it captured an image of a trans-Neptunian space rock called MU69 (a.k.a. Ultima Thule). The object is the most distant ever visited by a human-made craft, and the oldest known remnant from our early solar system. May, a stereoscopic photography enthusiast who published a collection of his 3D Queen images in 2017, also shared a stereoscopic photo of Ultima Thule that he processed himself. – See the Photos at People
