Into some music news Phoenix and R. Kelly Collaboration! Yes you read that right. Back in April, Phoenix and R. Kelly stunned the Coachella crowd with their very unlikely stage collaboration. The R&B veteran and French indie-rockers came together for a mash-up of Kelly’s slow-jam classic “Ignition” and Phoenix’s propulsive “1901.” And in a recent interview with Radio.com, Phoenix sheepishly hinted that this collaboration might even result in new music. The band quotes “Before going onstage we always put on R. Kelly’s music, which is very far from our music, but we love his art. So we created a mash-up between our music and his music. We sent it to him and he said yes. The funny part is he arrived late so we didn’t see him before. We met him onstage. We didn’t rehearse so there was a beautiful tension.”
Interesting news this weekend there was the world’s first lab grown hamburger.The taste testers of this meat said it wasn’t terrible but it didn’t taste exactly natural.took cells from a cow’s neck and replicated them using stem cells into 20,000 strips of muscle, and then combined them with lab grown fat to make a patty. Also Wi Telecommunications Inc. just unveiled a new solar-powered laptop that can run for 10 hours straight on a single charge! The Sol laptop features built-in foldable solar panels, so it can be used in off-grid areas and countries where access to electricity is limited. The makers claim the device can run directly off solar energy and can harness enough power to fully charge its battery in less than two hours.
