The National's Matt Berninger spoke to The Independent about the band's recording process for their upcoming album. He said: "We're trying to get in a room together more often for the next record and that’s been really fun, not tinkering over things obsessively on our own. We’ve been getting a lot of loose ideas together and just getting in a room and fucking around and having a blast for like a week. We also want to play a lot of songs live before we record them this time as it can help us better figure them out."

Will NWA ever tour together? Ice Cube spoke to Rolling Stone about the idea and said: "Well, I don't really know the status. Making the movie was a monster, and we had to really concentrate on that. Some things are easier said than done, and I don't know where everybody's head is at. I hope people will see us out on that stage together soon, but it's really up to Dre and Ren and Yella. You might see some of us; you might not see all of us."

After years of rumors, Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan confirmed that David Bowie did in fact audition for the Oscar winning trilogy. He told The Huffington Post: "As I was reading a magazine waiting, David Bowie came in and signed his little list and went in. And I'm assuming he read for Gandalf. I can't think of anything else he would've read for. He may have read for something else, but I'm a huge David Bowie fan, and I was lucky enough to know his son now so just seeing him in person was pretty special to me."
