Adele Got Spotify to Change their Auto-Shuffle for Albums

The power of Adele is REAL!

Adele convinced Spotify to stop making auto-shuffle automatic when you listen to an album.   She said, quote, “This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!  We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason . . .”Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended . . . Thank you Spotify for listening.”  To which Spotify replied, quote, “Anything for you.

Adele’s new album “30” came out last Friday and was available right away on Spotify . . . unlike her last album “25”, which took over six months.

Tiger Woods Takes Practice Swings in First Video of Him Golfing Since Car Accident

Tiger Woods appears to be on his way back to the course, even if its first steps are minor ones. Woods was involved in a February car crash back near Los Angeles that left the 15-time major winner with fractures in his lower leg and a long road to recovery. On Sunday, we saw the first concrete proof that Woods is making progress down that road and may, someday, be playing competitive golf again.

Tiger posted a 3-second video to social media that shows him taking a full swing while pivoting on his injured leg, which has been a sleeve since the cast was removed. Obviously, fans (and upcoming tournament host sites) were extremely excited to see Woods swinging the club just 271 days after his wreck.

Britney Spears calls out Christina Aguilera over conservatorship response

Christina Aguilera refused to talk about the end of Britney Spears’ conservatorship when asked about it on Friday, and Britney wasn’t happy.

At the “Latin Grammys” on Friday, Christina was asked to comment on the end of Britney’s conservatorship.  Her rep immediately pulled her away from reporters, and Christina said she couldn’t comment.  But as she was walking away, she did say, quote, “I’m happy for her.”

That wasn’t enough for Britney.  She posted a response on her Instagram Story, saying, quote, “I love and adore everyone who supported me . . . but refusing to speak when you know the truth, is equivalent to a lie!!!  “13 years being in a corrupt abusive system yet why is such a hard topic for people to talk about???  I’m the one who went through it!!!  All the supporters who spoke up and supported me thank you . . . Yes I do matter!”
