Fab Morvan Of Milli Vanilli Is Back

It’s hard to recognize Fab Morvan without the dreadlocks, but you know him as one half of Milli Vanilli, who infamously had their Grammy stripped in 1990 after it came out that they were lip-synching to other people’s voices on their tracks. What’s so tragic about this story is that: (a) the other half of the duo, Rob Pilatus, was found dead of a prescription pill overdose in 1998 and (b) that the guys could actually sing, and it seems like they were railroaded by their producer into taking credit for others’ vocals. Heck, they were homeless when they signed their contract. So I’m very glad to hear that Fab—who is pretty easy on the eyes with his closely cropped hair—is back in the music game. Keep reading »

Robyn Mouths Off On How Women Are Treated In The Music Industry

“I had an idea of trying to make pop music in a way that wasn’t restricted by the structure of how the industry had shaped pop music, but it was hard to do. Now the industry is shrinking back and has regulated itself. It’s good the record companies are having to think about what they are supposed to be doing. … The problem is the narrow-minded and stupid way older generations and structures look at what the differences between men and women are. It’s not politically correct any more to not be a feminist which is good, but for me, feminism is still necessary and that sucks.”
