Coldplay has a massive fan following in India. But their latest video "Hymn For The Weekend" which was shot in India with an intention to celebrate its vibrant and mystic hues has created a major furore for projecting a very 'stereotypical' image of the country and 'cultural appropriation'.

The video has been shot in the streets of Mumbai and other parts of India with its theme is anchored around the festival Holi. It is a collaborative effort with pop sensation Beyonce who has henna on her hands and is dressed in Indian ethnic clothes and jewellery. It also features Sonam Kapoor who appears for like three shots.(a rather short period considering the fact that she wants to narrate it to her grandkids).

First it was David Bowie and Alan Rickman. Now it's Glenn Frey. The first month of 2016 hasn't been kind at all.

The Grammy-winning Eagles guitarist and co-founder of the band, known for hits including 'Hotel California', 'Tequila Sunrise' and 'Heartache Tonight', has died.

Throughout the early- to mid-1970s, Frey and the band released hit after hit, leading a renaissance of mellow California singer-songwriters with such artists as Ronstadt and Jackson Browne.

Frey and Don Henley co-wrote many of the band's biggest songs, including 'Best of My Love', 'Lyin' Eyes', 'One of These Nights' and 'Hotel California'. Frey also famously helped Browne finish writing the Eagles' first hit, 'Take It Easy', contributing the catchy verse, 'it's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford / slowing down to take a look at me'.

Frey played guitar and keyboard and took lead vocal duties for the band on tunes like 'Take it Easy' and 'Tequila Sunrise'.

Here's remembering some of the band's greatest hits. Rest in peace, Glenn Frey.

Bridging the gap between Jewish and Arab cultures are the three Haim sisters —  Tair, Liron and Tagel —  from the tiny village of Shaharut, in the desert of southern Israel, who have combined ancient Yemenite melodies with irresistible electronic dance music and hip-hop beats. 

The three sisters call themselves "A-Wa" which is the Egyptian Arabic for "Yes" and clearly has a very positive, catchy ring to it.
