After dropping a teaser last week, OneRepublic ’s latest single has leaked online!

Love Runs Out” comes as the follow-up to the band’s mega-hit “Counting Stars,” and boasts an up-tempo, rock-driven sound that put it in line to be the next summer anthem!

And if fans don’t remember the track from OneRepublic’s 2013 album Native, it’s because it didn’t appear on the record! During an interview with a UK radio station, frontman Ryan Tedder revealed that “Love Runs Out” was actually supposed to be the lead single from Native though a problem arose during the writing process that forced the band to shelf the song.

“The very short back story on the song was when we were working on Native I originally thought this was going to be the first single and it’s called ‘Love Runs Out’ and I wanted it to be the first…

Karen Millen has undergone a transformation.

Once upon a time, it was synonymous with special occasion clothes; now, as it prepares to open its largest store in London next month and in New York in June, it has reinvented itself as a high-end retailer – but without the designer prices.

Its goal is to be known as a company that offers exclusive, well-made contemporary pieces with longevity, with designs aimed at women who want to tap into the zeitgeist without being slaves to trends.

The 8,000sq ft London store, almost double the size of its flagship opening on Regent Street, will also offer bespoke garments and will be the first space large enough to showcase the brand’s entire range.

Garcetti releases $8.1 billion budget proposal

Originally posted on KFWB NEWS TALK 980:

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled an $8.1 billion budget proposal today that includes money for expanding library hours, hiring more firefighters and code enforcement officers and fixing deteriorated city streets and sidewalks.

Repeating a theme he used in his State of the City address last week, Garcetti said his first budget proposal as mayor focuses on a “back-to- basics” agenda and would “pave more streets, fix more sidewalks, provide more police patrols (and) help businesses get started more quickly.”

“Angelenos expect a city hall that’s on their side, that spends their taxpayer dollars wisely, that protects people and opens up doors of opportunity,” he said. “That’s what back-to-basics is all about.”

The proposed budget bridges a projected shortfall of $242 million in fiscal year 2014-15 with the help of better-than-expected returns from taxes; savings on employee pensions and benefits; the elimination of vacant positions that equal 46…

‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Miniseries On The Way With Zoe Saldana [WATCH]

Originally posted on Black America Web:

Roman Polanski’s controversial 1968 film adaptation of author Ira Levin’s Rosemary’s Baby with Mia Farrow in the lead, was originally four hours long.

It was eventually trimmed to the two hours and 16 minutes released in theaters, meaning much of Levin’s sprawling story had to be streamlined.

Now, NBC says it has a full retelling of Levin’s novel in its miniseries that covers two nights and four hours, allowing many of the smaller, yet still significant moments to finally see the light of day, reports BuzzFeed.

Zoe Saldana takes over the role of Rosemary, who grows increasingly convinced that her husband and new neighbors have sinister plans for her baby.

Patrick J. Adams and Jason Isaacs also star. Rosemary’s Baby starts on Sunday, May 11.
