Red Hot Chili Peppers covered David Bowie’s ‘Cracked Actor’, from his 1973 album ‘Aladdin Sane’, at a fundraising concert for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders on Friday (February 5) in LA. In preparation for the gig, drummer Chad Smith painted his bass drum with a mixed portrait of Bowie's Aladdin Sane artwork and Bernie Sanders, which you can see below: Drums are ready for @BernieSanders #berninsane pic.twitter.com/3GbH4D2G7y— Chad Smith (@RHCPchad) February 5, 2016 It was the first time the band have performed since the death of Bowie on January 10. Sanders has previously used Bowie in his campaigning, playing his classic hit ‘Starman’ to conclude a speech in Iowa on Monday night (February 1). At the end of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ performance on Friday, frontman Anthony Kiedis said, “Well we fucked up on that.” See fan-shot footage below: Bernie Sanders has also been given support from other musicians including Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, who has urged US voters not to believe the 'unelectable' hype around the Democratic candidate. Koenig performed with Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth at a Sanders rally in Iowa City last weekend, where he also spoke to CNN about his support of the politician. Following the results of the Iowa Caucus on Monday, Koenig shared a post on his Instagram page continuing his support of Sanders. "Shoutout to my favorite singer: Bernie Sanders. He came from 50 points behind to tie Hillary Clinton in Iowa," Stereogum reports the post began. He continued: "Disagree with him all you want but don’t believe the "unelectable" hype. They say elections are decided by independents in swing states. Imagine you're an independent voter alienated by both parties – which major candidate has more potential to speak to you than Bernie?" "He is the only candidate who comes from outside the two-party system. He can win," Koenig concluded. "Extra respect to the 84% of young ppl in Iowa who voted for Bernie. Let's hope you get to spend your adult life in a world with leaders who support your values." Shoutout to my favorite singer: Bernie Sanders.

Iggy Pop has revealed that 'Post Pop Depression', his new album with Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme and Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders, may be his last. In his new interview for Apple Music, he said, "I feel like I’m closing up after this. That’s what I feel. It’s my gut instinct." When he asked if he would stop making music altogether, Iggy said, "No. If you call me and you want to work out a deal to come and sing 'Happy Birthday' at your mother’s, something like that I’ll refer you to someone. But to really make a real album you really have to put everything into it and the energy’s more limited now." He added, "The kind of artist I am, I’ve got something I can bring but it’s really about other people I can put together. I’m kind of a fan, too, I like to hang out, I like to be in bands, I like to hang around musicians." See a clip of the interview below, via Noisey: The 68-year-old recently announced that he will headline London's Royal Albert Hall with his new bandmates in May. Pop's new album 'Post Pop Depression' is scheduled for release on March 18 and was recorded in secret last year. The band will be playing select live dates around the globe, with Homme on record as saying they will only perform in “small, beautiful theaters where their presence might still seem disruptive.” The first UK venue to host the band will be the Royal Albert Hall in London with the band set to play on May 18. The first track from the album, 'Gardenia', was launched in late January, while the new set up also made their live debut on Colbert. Pop has also revealed another new song, 'Break Into Your Heart'.

Ellie Goulding has revealed that she was rebuffed by Prime Minister David Cameron when she asked for a meeting to discuss homelessness with him. Goulding was acting in her role as patron for the Marylebone Project, which provides 112 long- and short-term beds for homeless women, as well as providing education, employment and training opportunities to support users of its service into independent living. The 29-year-old, who has previously spoken out about the London borough of Hackney's treatment of homeless people, said she and the chief executive of the Marylebone Project, Mark Russell, received a "standard letter" informing them that the Prime Minister didn't have time to see them. Speaking to The Mirror, she said, “We genuinely just wanted a chat to see what his view was on it. We’re not trying to confront him. Mark reached out to talk about the recent housing bills and received one of those standard letters, so I don’t know whether he even saw it or not. "I’m sure he gets loads of requests," she added. "Maybe he’ll get back to us now. I can’t say at this point that he’s not interested, as I don’t know if that’s the case. It might be that he’s looking for an opportunity to do something.” According to The Guardian, a spokesman for Cameron has declined to comment. Derek Bremner/NME  In June 2015, Ellie Goulding attacked London’s local councils for their treatment of the homeless. Writing on Twitter, Goulding called out the London borough of Hackney following a public space protection order that had come into effect in the area the previous month. The PSPO aims to crack down on anti-social behaviour including sleeping rough and begging. Those in breach of the order could be issued with a £100 fixed penalty notice or a fine of £1,000. Many have criticised the order, arguing that it unfairly penalises vulnerable people. "I'm looking at you Hackney Council," she wrote. "How could you do this to vulnerable people who need you the most? I can't deal with your ignorance". See the tweets in full below: [View the story "Ellie Goulding hits out at Hackney council" on Storify] Then, in October 2015, Goulding called on the new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to help tackle homelessness, saying that she wanted to meet up with him to discuss the issue. She says that she's been impressed with his politics since his unexpected rise to the top of the party. "He is bringing some compassion back into politics," she said. "I feel good about that. I’d really like to meet him and talk things over with him. But I think things look good." "As soon as I found out he didn’t eat meat it made me interested in him because I think it automatically shows an awareness of the world and it’s a type of compassion that I can relate to. It’s a sign that someone has escaped that ignorance of where their food comes from, and that’s really important," she added.

Reynolds, who played The Green Lantern in an ill-fated 2011 movie, has also taken on comic book roles in RIPD and Blade: Trinity. However, it is only Wade Wilson that has made him happy.

As reported, the US rapper will launch his new album with a listening party and fashion show in New York. The arena event will mark the launch of West's Yeezy Season 3 range with Adidas and the release of his new album. Said album currently has no title, having been called 'Swish' and 'Waves' in recent months. The event sold out in just 10 minutes and will be streamed in cinemas around the world. However, one way fans can be involved is to be one of over 1000 extras performing in the event. Spin reports that Onset Productions, will pay between $50 and $80 per day for the day's work.

However, West has now backtracked on his remarks, stating that the album is not the greatest of all-time, but just one of them.

Noel Fielding has suggested that he is working with Julian Barratt again. The pair have not written anything together since the last series of The Mighty Boosh, which was broadcast in 2007. Barratt and Fielding last reunited on stage as The Mighty Boosh Band at London's Soho Theatre in September 2013, as a warm-up for their appearance at Tenacious D's Festival Supreme in Santa Monica, California the following month. However, they are planning something new for 2016 with Fielding telling the hosts of The Nerdist podcast (via Chortle) this week that he and Barratt are writing together once more. "Me and Julian have just started – we sort of had a big break - we never weren’t friends, we carried on being friends … because we live in the same street, so we see each other all the time … and we’ve just recently started thinking we should write something again," Fielding told host Chris Hardwick. "So hopefully this year we’re going to have a crack at something. No idea what … we’re just going to see what happens. We might write a modern dance piece." Getty Elsewhere in the podcast, Fielding revealed that he and Barratt turned down the opportunity to make a version of The Mighty Boosh for US TV. A move he now regrets. "We sort of came here at the height of the Booshdom, when it was doing well," Fielding said. "Robin Williams came to see us at the Roxy. Jack Black hung out with us and Mike Myers, we sort of met all the cool people and they were all going “oh, you should do something, you should do something!” "And unfortunately we’d just done a 100-date tour, Julian was about to have kids, it was kind of the wrong timing really, we needed a bit of a break. So we didn’t do it. But in some ways, I wish we had of done." Although The Mighty Boosh never officially split, the pair had not previously worked together since 2009's 'Boosh Live: Future Sailors Tour'. Since their last live appearance together, Barratt and Fielding have each pursued various solo projects on stage, film and TV.

The X Factor will definitely return to ITV in 2017, the station has confirmed. There were reports that the TV talent show could be rested or even dropped entirely with ITV's contract with the producers expiring this year, a continued drop in ratings and the fact that The Voice will arrive from the BBC next year. However, as Digital Spy reports, a Syco spokesperson confirmed that the reality talent competition won't be taking any time off and a rep for ITV stated that they plan to extend the X Factor as well as Simon Cowell's other series, Britain's Got Talent. READ: 2015's 11 Biggest Live TV Blunders, From Olly Murs' X Factor Cock-Up To BBC Breakfast's X-Rated Slip "The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent contracts come up for renewal after the latest series air later this year, and we fully intend to continue with both shows into 2017 and beyond," said an ITV spokesperson. Viewing figures for last year's X Factor were down on 2014 with just 8.4m tuning into the final, the second lowest figure in the ITV show's history. Since launching in 2004, Simon Cowell's talent search has routinely attracted ratings over over 10m. However, the 2015 series struggled to pick up viewers and routinely scored lower figures than its Saturday night rival Strictly Come Dancing.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Emma Watson have been named visiting fellows of an Oxford College. Cumberbatch and Watson are among 11 visiting fellows at Lady Margaret Hall, reports The Guardian, with Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant also on the list. Other appointees include director Beeban Kidron, musician Mark Simpson and high court judge Rabinder Singh. Former Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger is the college's principal and announced the appointments on Friday (February 5). “They are people drawn from a variety of backgrounds, callings and professions and we want them to form a bridge between our own academic community and the worlds they inhabit and represent,” Rusbridger said. Getty The part time positions are intended to add to the cultural life of the college. "At a minimum we’d like them to drop in occasionally at college, eat with us and meet informally with a variety of the LMH community, Rusbridger added. “We’d like them to do one thing a bit more structured. It could be a conversation or debate, a performance, a lecture or seminar, a form of outreach – or something we haven’t thought of. We can imagine fascinating interactions or collaborations between them." Cumberbatch studied for a BA in drama at Manchester University while Watson graduated from Ivy League Brown University in 2014.
