Robyn - Page 3
Rapper Rye Rye and pop star Robyn have a lot in common. Both are petite, with first names that start with an "R" and have a "y" in them. Both sport short, pixie haircuts and boast unique and colorful senses of style, as the video for their hook-laden, slow burning single 'Never Will Be Mine' -- which features Rye Rye's aggressive and assured raps toned down by Robyn's pretty melodies in the chorus -- demonstrates.
Swedish pop star Robyn is the latest diva to be profiled in Out magazine, and the singer, whose music blares out of Britney Spears' iPod, spoke about being mistaken for a lesbian (thanks to her short, blond coif); her upbringing by artsy, theater company parents; and her private life, which she keeps close to the vest. She also mused about the trappings of pop stardom, which she does her best to sidestep and avoid.
London MC Tinie Tempah burst onto the scene with his song 'Written in the Stars,' and he recently chatted with AMP Radio about the modern chanteuses he'd like to work with, as well as the artists who've influenced him. He apparently has a thing for the female divas, since fellow Brit Adele and Swedish pop star Robyn top his list of dream collaborators.
Pop diva Katy Perry will hit the road this summer on her 'California Dreams' tour, which begins June 7 (Prince's birthday!) in Atlanta and includes Swedish electropop artist Robyn. According to an interview with Rolling Stone, Perry is preparing for the excursion, which will support her 2010 album 'Teenage Dream,' as if "training for the Olympics."
