The Pet Shop Boys Are Writing a Ballet!!!

The Pet Shop Boys have turned their talents to the ballet, setting author Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale, The Most Incredible Thing, to music.
The  British electro-pop duo worked with choreographer Javier De Frutos and  playwright Matthew Dunster to create the ballet. The fairytale focuses  on a competition, in which the winner gains half of the kingdom and, of  course, the hand of the princess in marriage.
The ballet will open for a five-night run on March 22. The score for The Most Incredible Thing was released earlier this week in the U.K. via EMI.
“I would regard this project as part of a long career of putting pop music in a theatrical context,” Neil Tennant recently told Reuters in an interview prior to a preview of the work.
“We’ve always liked this thing of putting pop music in a theatrical  context, really to make it more enjoyable. The theory is not very  complicated: (it) is to make it more enjoyable and maybe to make you  think about it slightly differently.”

Mariah Carey’s dogs are in therapy

to prepare them for the arrival of her twins.
The singer is currently expecting her first  children with husband Nick Cannon but is so worried about the  psychological impact their birth will have on the couple’s four Jack  Russell terriers – JJ, Cha-Cha, Dolomite and Jackie Lambchops - she has  taken them to a pet psychologist.
An expert on Jack Russells said they “can be jealous and possessive about their owners”.
Mariah, 41, has previously revealed her pooches  lead a pampered life and even had their own entourage when they once  took part in a video shoot with her.
She said: “I had my team with me but the pups had a  mini entourage of their own, of course! And why wouldn’t they? It was a  big shoot and even my entourage had an entourage - my stylist had an  assistant, my security had extra security.”

Neil Young Announces Spring Solo Tour

You lucky lucky Americans!!
Neil Young has announced a 10-city American theater tour kicking off April 15th in  Durham, North Carolina. The show will be a continuation of his 2010  Twisted Road tour, which featured Young performing most of the songs  from the Daniel Lanois-produced Le Noise alongside many of his  greatest hits, including “Ohio,” “Down By The River,” “Cinnamon Girl”  and “Helpless.” Unlike Young’s previous solo theater tours, many of the  songs were performed on electric guitar – though he does play the piano,  organ and an acoustic guitar throughout the evening.
