He’s a rock and roll icon! A Living legend. A global treasure. We had such a blast with Rod Stewart this morning! A solo artist that has sold over 200-million albums worldwide, but he still took the time to call his friend Ellen K this morning on KOST 103.5.

NEW ALBUM IN MAY

Rod Stewart gave an exclusive interview to The Ellen K Morning Show on KOST-FM in Los Angeles and revealed some long-awaited details from the studio. “Tomorrow, I will complete a brand new album of twelve original songs,” Stewart shared with Ellen K. “And it should be out in May.” Sir Stewart says he’s recently rediscovered his passion for songwriting, “I’ve fallen in love with writing again. I don’t know where this came from.” Turns out, he was soured on the process years ago. “When I was with The Faces, I used to hate it. They’d lock me up in a room with a bottle of wine and wouldn’t let me out until I’d finished the lyrics.”

WRITING WITH RONNIE WOOD

Rod Stewart joined the Ellen K Morning Show on KOST-FM in Los Angeles and shared a never-before-told story about writing music with a young Ronnie Wood. “Back in those days, no one was writing songs. The Beatles had started, but the Stones weren’t even writing songs.” The two musicians, in their late teens, were at Ronnie’s mom’s house, “for hours and hours with a pencil, but nothing came.” Though, Stewart says, not for a lack of effort by Mrs. Wood, “Ronnie’s mom brought in a bottle of wine. So we got pissed as farts and fell asleep. In the morning, she came in and said, ‘well, you’ll never be The Beatles.'”

Welcome to LA 🍎 @apple! The new building looks gorgeous!! Congrats @CulverCityGov 🎉

After HBO backed out of plans to occupy the new office building in Culver City, Apple is set to take the lease. The four-story project is being developed by Lincoln Property Co. and will feature 128,000 square feet of retail. It’s expected to open in late 2019, HBO was expected to be the main tenant, but recently backed out. The mayor of Culver City confirmed this information and stated “We were very excited about HBO but if anything, we’re more excited about Apple.” 

Today, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. on his birthday. His speech takes on new meaning every time we hear it. #Equality

Today We Honor Martin Luther King Jr. On His 50th Anniversary

Today, the nation celebrates Martin Luther King Junior Day. This year’s celebration is extra special because it is the 50th anniversary since Dr. King’s death and it actually falls on his birthday as well. In remembrance, here are a couple ways you can celebrate in Los Angeles:

LACMA will be hosting a free day on Monday, Jan. 15 so you can celebrate dreams and diversity through art. The museum will be offering bilingual tours, a family sketching activity and live music with Diana Purim and Eyedentity at 12:30 and 2:45 p.m. Plus, there are all the family favorites like the Boone Children’s Gallery, Chris Burden’s Metropolis II, and the Levitated Mass.

Also, the California African American Museum will be hosting their annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. There will be fun for the whole family beginning with kid’s art workshops where everyone can make a dream catcher filled with their dreams for a better world or contribute to the community peace garden exhibition. There will also be a discussion about women activists during the civil rights movement and a study of Dr. King’s speeches. Plus, there will also be food so you can spend the day soaking in positive energy, good food, and community.

Have you ever been hated on instantly? The ladies & I were talking about it on @thetalkcbs loved @eve’s story!

After Hugh Grant revealed that Robert Downey Jr. hated him on set while the two actors worked on the movie, “Restoration,” the topic of discussion on “The Talk” was… ‘Has anyone hated you on first sight?’ Eve shared a good story about her and Lil’ Kim’s first meeting. Check it out:
