Eagles of Death Metal Discuss Paris Shooting in Their First Interview Since the Attacks

Eagles of Death Metal Discuss Paris Shooting in Their First Interview Since the Attacks

Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme  have given their first interview since the deadly attack at Eagles of Death Metal‘s show at Le Bataclan in Paris on November 13. Speaking with VICE co-founder Shane Smith, they discussed the trajectory of the evening’s events– how the shooting unfolded, the band’s reaction, and more.

Both men are visibly shaken during the interview. Homme was not present at the concert, but Hughes recounts the night, detailing the audience members’ bravery amid terror. He says:

Several people hid in our dressing room, and the killers were able to get in and they killed everyone except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket. … People were playing dead and they were so scared. A great reason why so many were killed is because so many people wouldn’t leave their friends. So many people put themselves in front of people.

The interview also contains fan footage that was recorded at the concert that night, including some jarring clips of what appears to be the first rounds of fire.

You Can Film Your Own “Hotline Bling” Video at the Toronto Raptors’ Arena in Honor of Drake Night

You Can Film Your Own "Hotline Bling" Video at the Toronto Raptors' Arena in Honor of Drake Night

Drake is the “global ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors, which means he gets free tickets to show up to their games and lint roll his pants, among other things. Tonight is the third annual “Drake Night”, as the Raptors face off against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

To celebrate, the Raptors have installed a “Hotline Bling” booth outside of the Air Canada Centre, as Complex points out. It’s a giant light box like the one found in the “Hotline Bling” video, where fans can re-enact the clip. Below, you can watch Toronto city councillor (and noted Drake fan) Norm Kelly and the Raptors mascot test it out.

In addition to the booth, the Raptors will also honor Drake by wearing OVO-inspired uniforms tonight. Additionally, ticketholders will get some very #rare OVO x Raptors merch when they enter the game.

Erykah Badu Reveals Full Details of But You Caint Use My Phone Mixtape

Erykah Badu Reveals Full Details of But You Caint Use My Phone Mixtape

Erykah Badu has revealed the full release details of her new mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone. The follow-up to 2010’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh is out this Friday, November 27 as an iTunes/Apple Music exclusive. It will be available via other digital services on December 4. That’s the cover art, above.

The title of the mixtape is a reference to Badu’s 1997 track “Tyrone”. According to a press release, “each song makes reference to telephones and our own reliance on staying inter-connected.”

Badu recorded the project with producer Zach Witnessin in Dallas. “Surprises” and “guests” are promised.

At the beginning of October, Badu dropped “HOTLINE BLING BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE MIX”, a remix of Drake‘s “Hotline Bling”. It appears on But You Caint Use My Phone under its new title, “Cell U Lar Device”. The mixtape also features “Phone Down”.

A press release states:

The mixtape expertly weaves Erykah Badu’s trademark soulful vocals with psychedelic soundscapes, hip-hop-inflected beats, smooth R&B, jazz, art-rock and found sounds into a new genre Erykah describes as TRap & B. Badu and Witnessin dedicated a lot of time to precise mixing work, toying with EQs and other filters so that the sound’s frequency and vibration move in tandem to capture a feeling she refers to as “sympathetic vibration.” Badu also used a tuning fork and Tibetan singing bowls to fine-tune these details, with the goal of creating a sound that brings peace and tranquility to its listener. It is a sound that Badu herself referrers to as a “whole new frequency” for fans.

Badu will also host this year’s Soul Train Music Awards, airing on BET and Centric on Sunday, November 29. She co-wrote the show and serves as an associate producer. She’ll perform “Phone Down” during the show.
