Adele Hangs With The Spice Girls After Their London Show: 'It's No Secret How Much I Love Them'. Spice Girls superfan Adele had the time of her life at the group's final stop on their reunion tour in London Saturday night (June 15) -- and fortunately for us, she documented it all on Instagram. The singer posted a series of photos and videos from the show at Wembley Stadium, including a video of her singing along to "Stop" in the back of a car, a photo of her with Geri Halliwell and a video of her and her friends dancing to "Spice Up Your Life." "Oiii last time I saw the Spice Girls at Wembley was 21 years ago!" she wrote. "Tonight with my nearest and dearest i cried, laughed, screamed, danced, reminisced and fell back in love with my 10-year-old self. It's no secret how much I love them, how much they inspired me to run for my life and never look back. I finally got to meet Ginger, I got drunk with the girls and quite frankly I can't believe how far I've come thank you for the madness I get to live, I couldn't have got here without you 5 BRITISH legends! I love you!" The Spice Girls also posted about Adele's visit, sharing a picture of the group posing with the "Someone Like You" singer and writing, "Thank you for coming to celebrate with us last night @adele we love you!!!"

Father John Misty Plays Song He Says Was Rejected From 'A Star is Born'. Father John Misty tells a lot of fantastical stories during his shows. Some of them seem too outrageous to be true. But on Friday night (June 14) at the Armory in Minneapolis he told a tall tale that sounds like very plausible: he wrote a mournful song for A Star is Born that didn't make the final cut. The revelation came near the end of FJM's set -- which, according to a review in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune included a ramble through the film's ballad "Maybe It's Time," penned by his tourmate Jason Isbell -- when he came out for an encore, strapped on an acoustic guitar and started singing, "As long as you got yours/ Baby, I can go and get mine/ I'll parade my..." And, as first reported by Vulture, he then stopped strumming and said, "I'm trying to remember my A Star is Born song," before diving back in. "I'll parade my fishing barrel/ Right beneath your loaded eyes/ Though I know it may sound cruel, inconvenient for you and ugly/ But I'm too handsome to sit and pine/ So you tell me what's a man to do/ When a man done lost all his pride?" he sang. Misty then urged his band to join in on the country waltz about not wanting to spend time in the spotlight as "glamour withers on the vine," cueing up a tune that would totally have sounded on-brand if sung by a world-weary Jackson Maine. "Now imagine I'm a time-traveling Bradley Cooper," FJM joked about the movie's star/director. As the song chugged to an end, Misty gently teased his co-headliner Isbell for landing some ASIB action, saying, "let's how Jason Isbell how it's done... I love you Jason." Spokespeople for Misty and A Star is Born could not be reached for comment at press time. "That would have sucked. I've seen that movie. There's really no place in that movie for that song. Unless he was like bombing at Coachella or something... the sequel. Now we're talking." (Billboard)

Canadian Music Week Reports 41% of Musical Acts Were Women in 2019. Canadian Music Week, which made a conscious effort to increase the amount of women participating in the festival, managed to near the 50/50 gender balance pledged to Keychange. This year's event, which took place from May 6-12, was comprised of 41% female-led bands, the organization reports. "We are extremely proud of the progress we've made and look forward to meeting our goal of 50/50 gender equality at Canadian Music Week by 2022," reads a statement from the organization. CMW signed on to the Keychange 50:50 pledge three years ago to achieve gender parity by 2022. In 2017, 27% of the artists performing at the festival were women or bands led by women. In 2018, that number increased to 31%. The brainchild of the U.K.'s PRS Foundation, which helps fund new music and talent development, Keychange is an international initiative launched in 2017 to encourage festivals and music organizations to achieve a 50/50 gender balance by 2022. The figure includes women, transgender and non-binary people. To date, nearly 200 music festivals and conferences have taken the Keychange 50/50 pledge. PRS Foundation is supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, in partnership with Musikcentrum st, Reeperbahn Festival, Iceland Airwaves, BIME, Tallinn Music Week, Way Out West, Liverpool Sound City and Mutek.
