No cable provider? No problems. HBO will begin to offer a stand-alone service starting next year.
All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them," he said. Plepler described broadband-only homes as "a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped. It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO." Until today's surprise announcement, HBO had long resisted splitting off from its lucrative deals with cable providers. The company clearly doesn't want to anger partners like Comcast; in the same press release revealing its plans for a standalone service, HBO emphasizes there are still...

It seems after being "blasted" by monitor feedback multiple times at the Against Me! show tonight, Laura Jane Grace smashed the monitor, left the stage, and went outside to play instead. She's since apologized on Twitter for cutting the show short.
It was kind of funny to see that monitor guy run away from me though. I'm not Rayon from Dallas Buyers Club mother fucker. I will come at U.

U2's new music video for "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)" can be seen in the replies. Bono also offered an apology during a Facebook Q&A for those of you who were upset about the band's new album being "forced" into your library.
Oops. I'm sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea and we got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn't be heard. There's a lot of noise out there. I guess we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it.

Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie talks about his favorite books.
Recently my favorite book has been Tina Fey’s Bossypants. I just love the way she weaves the story. She’s so funny about stuff that I would be reserved about. She’s so open. Maybe she feels remorse or feels guilty for doing something she shouldn’t have, but it’s so entertaining. You don’t dislike her for doing something appalling because it’s so amazing how honest she is about it. It made me want to be more honest in my writing. I took that approach to writing after reading that book. It’s a more confessional approach. And I like that. It helps me to not be so precious. And of course Hunter S Thompson inspired our newest...

Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness have a new album out today and we have an interview with Andrew talking about it. Check it out here.
You get to a point where you can make records for a living and it’s like, let’s have some fun. Let’s experiment with these sounds. Let’s take all the tools that are available to us and play with them. There’s the sense of let’s go on this adventure because I have the freedom to. Since I don’t have a history of records with this project, it gave me the flexibility to say, “Let’s reinvent my sound and go down that road where we can have some fun.”

Billboard profiles Eytan Oren, the man who helps pair up tech-brands with bands. Because why else would anyone use Kik?
Kytan Oren was one of the first to realize their revenue potential for brands and bands. "There are a lot of people that won't pay for music, but they'll pay $1.99 for your branded sticker emoji pack," says Oren, who left his position as director of partnerships at IPG Media Labs in September to start his own social media integration service, Block Party.

Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (The Mars Volta) has passed while on tour with Jack White.
It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah "Ikey" Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans. Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects. Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled. We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist.

Marina, who resides in Austin, Texas, says her daughters, age 10 and 7, “live in constant fear” of their father. While under his care, she claims Greg “routinely denies [them] food” so that they do not gain weight, has threatened them with physical abuse and, at times, thrown cups of water in their faces.

According to TMZ, Kesha has filed a lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke for alleged sexual assault and battery.
In one instance, Kesha claims he forced her to snort something before getting on a plane … and during the trip he forced himself on her while she was drugged. On another occasion, Kesha claims after forcing her to drink with him, Dr. Luke gave her what he called "sober pills." Kesha claims she woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke's bed, sore, sick … and with no memory of how she got there.
