Maisie Peters has taken on Green Day’s iconic pop-punk anthem ‘Basket Case’ for Triple J’s Like A Version.Originally released in 1994 as the third single from Green Day’s game changing ‘Dookie’ record, Maisie Peters confidently added a dreamy pop twist to the angsty song.“I wanted to do something slightly unexpected and Green Day were one of the first bands I discovered when I was 12. I loved that song, I loved ‘21 Guns’ [from 2009’s ‘21st Century Breakdown’] and ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’ [from 2004’s ‘American Idiot].
They were real pillars of my adolescence,” Peters explained to Triple J. “I loved the spirit of all of those Green Day songs.
I loved the energy and the fire.”Peters added that she was inspired by folk songs, country music and The 1975’s ‘Part Of The Band’ for her version of ‘Basket Case’ – check it out below. Peters is currently on tour across Australia supporting Ed Sheeran. She’s also gearing up to release second album ‘The Good Witch’ which is due to drop June 16.Speaking about the record, Peters said: “This is my heart and soul, my blood on the page, the collection of stories that I’ve managed to capture in the past year.
A true chronicle of my life in recent history, it is my own twisted version of a breakup album and it all draws upon the same couple of months’ worth of experiences and inspirations.”“It ducks and weaves between the real and surreal, and centres my own universe, of which I am of course the keeper of the keys and the holder of the cards – The Good Witch, if you will. It goes from light to dark in the flip of a switch and I hope takes you on a journey where by the end, you feel like you’ve gotten lost in someone else’s planet for a bit.”Maisie Peters is also set to head out on a.

Ashley Graham is taking the high road!
Ashley Graham is taking the high road when it comes to her viral Oscars interview with Hugh Grant. The 35-year-old supermodel interviewed A-listers on the champagne carpet during ABC's Oscars pre-show at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.Graham's awkward exchange with Grant went viral after a debate arose as to whether the 62-year-old British actor was being rude, giving clipped responses and even rolling his eyes at the end, or that the interview itself was just a culture clash gone wrong.When approached by at the airport after the show, Graham was asked about her interview with Grant.«You know what, my mama told me to kill people with kindness, so there you go,» the mother of three said, smiling.And Graham didn't seem to let the moment put a damper on the evening.«I had so much fun,» she shared.
The US judge overseeing the latest Ed Sheeran song-theft legal battle has declined to ban the plaintiffs in the case from showing a YouTube video in which the musician himself mashes together his song with the one he’s accused of ripping off.

Hugh Grant has come under fire for his red carpet interview at the Oscars. The actor was in attendance at the 95th Academy Awards and as he rubbed shoulders with his fellow big screen stars before the ceremony, he spoke with model Ashley Graham in what People Magazine called "a brief, awkward interview".
“We’ve come a long way that two men can share an Oscar,” joked Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel after the commercial break following Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s win for Best Director for A24’s Everything Everywhere All at Once.
Capping off a season of accolades, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert were honored with the Academy Award for Directing at the 95th Oscars. Better known as The Daniels, the duo won for just their second feature film, “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” They also became just the third pair to win the award after Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise (“West Side Story”) and Joel and Ethan Coen (“No Country For Old Men”).
Everything Everywhere All at Once” rake in the accolades at the Academy Awards wasn’t gratifying enough, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (a.k.a. the Daniels) also entered the history books as the third directing duo in history to win Best Director.The Daniels’ nomination was the fourth time a team of two had been up for the prize, with previous nominations going to Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise for 1961’s “West Side Story,” Buck Henry and Warren Beatty for 1978’s “Heaven Can Wait” and Ethan and Joel Coen 2007’s “No Country for Old Men.”With the Daniels’ win, directing duos have gone three for four at the Academy Awards, suggesting that, once nominated, the Academy has little problem seeing directing as a team sport. The “Everything Everywhere All at Once” pair came into the evening as the odds-on favorite in the category, with their film enjoying overwhelming success on the awards circuit the weeks and months prior.
Hugh Grant wasn't thrilled by his chat with ABC’s co-hostAshley Graham, or her line of questioning ahead of Sunday's 95th Oscars.While chatting with Graham outside the Dolby Theatre ahead of the big show, Grant seemed to get increasingly irritated throughout the conversation, and really didn't want to engage at all.When asked what he's wearing — a fairly normal red carpet question — Grant simply said, «Just my suit.» He was equally terse when asked who he was rooting for, responding, «No one in particular.»Graham tried to turn things around, asking about his highly talked-about cameo in , but it was to no avail, with Grant simply responding, «Well, I'm barely in it. I’m in for about three seconds.»The cringey exchange came to an end with one final uncomfortable moment when, after asking a final question and getting nothing in return, Graham said, «Well, OK, it was nice to talk to you.»«Yeah,» Grant said, seemingly rolling his eyes as he handed back the mic.I'm Hugh Grant all night with the Oscars & award shows in general nowadays.

He’s very affluent, she’s poor, and they’ve both been neglected in different ways and haven’t got the skills to have a normal healthy relationship, so it gets toxic.
