Wednesday Roundup: Snappy Madonna, Prince Wins a Webby, and Musical Morphine

Madonna Snaps at Bored Audience

According to one report, Madonna stopped a concert in Las Vegas to personally address a bored looking audience member. "If you are only going to sit there, at least you can smile," the diva yelled to the man. I find it a little ridiculous that a paying audience member must find himself being criticized by the very artist he's paying to see. Just a little bit.

Prince Wins Webby For Contribution to Online Music

The Purple One will be receiving a lifetime achievement award for his "use of the internet to connect to audiences" from the Webby Awards. Prince has released several albums available exclusively on the web, and has used the internet to premiere new videos. In fact, Prince has been one of the few artists to embrace the web, rather than sue everyone associated with it. Yay for him!

Music As a Pain Killer

A new study has found that patients can cut levels of chronic pain by up to 21% simply by listening to their favorite music. The study has been published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing. I will crank some Quiet Riot to that.

Have a great rest of the week folks.
