Joni Mitchell Reveals Why She Nixed Taylor Swift-Starring Biopic

In April 2012, it was reported that Taylor Swift was in talks to portray folk legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joni Mitchell in the big-screen adaptation of Girls Like Us , a book that focused on the impact of Mitchell, Carol King and Carly Simon. As recently as October 2012, Swift admitted that she was still eager to play Mitchell, but the role hadn’t been confirmed yet. Two years later, we finally know why the film wasn’t officially greenlit: Mitchell prevented the biopic from being made. Shake It Off: Taylor Swift’s 10 Most Empowering Lines “I squelched that,” Mitchell told The Sunday Times of the nixed biopic (via NME). “I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.’ It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes.” Mitchell also said of the source material, written by Sheila Weller, “There’s a lot of nonsense about me in books… assumptions, assumptions, assumptions.” “That’s actually not confirmed,” Swift said in October 2012 when asked if she would play Mitchell

Monty Python Song Named Top Funeral Choice

Monty Python’s “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life,” the jaunty singalong that first appeared in the comedy troupe’s 1979 film The Life of Brian , has long been a staple at funerals for its optimistic tone, bubbly melody and lyrics about one’s own demise. But in a new survey of funeral directors, the track has become the most popular song to play at British funerals, according to the Telegraph . Eric Idle on the ‘Ridiculously Python’ Farewell Shows The survey, based on more than 30,000 funerals, found the song beating out Frank Sinatra’s “My Way,” Robbie Williams’ “Angel” and Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” alongside more traditional hymns.  “We wonder if it’s the people who were young in the swinging Sixties, who are now in their 70s and 80s, and if that’s informing this trend,” David Collingwood, operations director at the Co-operative Funeralcare, told the outlet. “Monty Python, for example, is of a certain age.” While Collingwood said this represents a “generational shift in attitudes towards funerals,” there are still some songs that have been rejected by funeral homes as being inappropriate. Alongside songs by Eminem and Sex Pistols, some of the verboten tracks include Meat Loaf’s “Bat out of Hell,” Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” and Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Relax.” “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” functioned as a different final song in July, when the comedy troupe ended their run of reunion shows with the number. The comedians dressed in white suit jackets, with four of the members conducting the London audience with batons as the song’s writer, Eric Idle, played guitar.
