It is said that she is just obsessed with watching it and now she has even got the rapper watching the crime drama also.

Talking on London’s Capital FM Radio station, Aaron said:

”Drake told me the other night ‘I’ve never watched the show but Rihanna was just so obsessed with it and so she got me on to it’.”

Drake wanted Aaron to come and watch them on stage in Paris on Tuesday (25.02.14), where he was playing as part of his ‘Would You Like A Tour’, and Aaron admitted he was gutted to have missed the steamy duet which saw the pair perform ‘Pour It Up’ and their 2012 hit, ‘Take Care’ together.

Araon added:

”He goes, ‘I saw you the other night but I didn’t go up to you and I texted Rihanna that I saw you and you were here in Paris and we were just very excited. We wanted you to come to the show’ – and I just wasn’t able to.”

Do Viewers Win in the War Between Youtube and TV?

A lot has been made of the great TV vs Online TV debate in recent months, not least by the owners of Youtube (that would be Google, which should be no surprise!). It’s certainly true that Youtube, Netflix and Hulu are changing the way in which we view videos and TV. However, claims by Eric Shmidt that internet video has already replaced TV may be a little premature. In many Western countries, the US and the UK included, the facts suggest otherwise. TV viewing figures since the 1950s have been going in only one direction; upwards. Reports from Neilsen show that average household viewing in the US in 1949 – 50 was 4.35 hours and that had grown to 8.71 hours. These figures are per household and may mask some differences in age/viewing hour’s statistics but the reality is that TV remains dominant in terms of our viewing hours. Younger people, across the years, have watched less TV than adults and with age the viewing hours per person does increase. Children on average spend slightly over 27 hours per week in front of the TV while those over sixty spend at least double that. So does video streaming on sites like Youtube (and the attempt by providers like Netflix to break the stranglehold of terrestrial TV) look likely to make any progress any time soon?

TVs Domination

Old media, in its many formats, has been on the defensive for some time now. The music industry, journalism, publishing and gaming (admittedly not that old a media, unless you count crosswords) have all battled with varying success against the massive changes that the internet has brought to their doorsteps. These changes have both transformed all of these industries and yet throughout this period of rapid developments TV has, as yet, stuck its ground. There have been changes; time-shifted viewing is becoming increasingly common and some of it is now online, via ‘On Demand’ services offered by broadcasters. While TV viewing figures have taken a small dip in recent years, this has been offset by the number of people watching TV online via traditional broadcaster’s own site. Google’s argument that the ‘war’ is over and that it has won seems somewhat misplaced by TVs considerably strong performance in the face of the competition.

Youtube’s Strengths

Youtube, which is now part of the Google group of businesses, started life as nothing more than a place where small clips of video footage could be found. Since Google took over, however, there have been clear indications that the company intends to become a cheaper, more flexible alternative to cable TV. It has a lot in its favour; the scale of reach that the site has (global) and the fact that its stated aim is to be able to deliver video to any device – something that not all online TV channels and Youtube competitors can claim – means that Youtube is well placed to deliver an alternative option from traditional broadcasting. The take up rate in terms of viewing is pretty impressive too; 6 billion hours of Youtube videos per month shows that the site is well placed to corner the market.

Angela Lansbury Pleads No ‘Murder, She Wrote’ Remake It’s A Mistake!

resizedimageAngela Lansbury is unhappy over remake of Murder She Wrote. The British American actress and theater singer has pleaded with NBC television producers to please not remake the hit show. The star, who is eighty eight years old has called it a mistake, Octavia Spencer is set to take on the lead role.

“I think it’s a mistake to call it ‘Murder, She Wrote’ because ‘Murder, She Wrote’ will always be about a Cabot Cove (show’s fictional village) and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person,” Lansbury told the Associated Press.

“So I’m sorry that they have to use the title ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ even though they have access to it and it’s their right,” she adds.

But the actress has no ill will toward her replacement.

“I saw [Spencer] in The Help star and thought she was absolutely wonderful, a lovely actress. So I wish her well, but I wish it wasn’t in ‘Murder, She Wrote,’” she says.

Lansbury, portrayed murder-mystery writer Jessica Fletcher on the series for its entire 1984-1996 run.
