Missing actress Misty Upham believed to be dead
A body of a woman found on the banks of a river near Seattle is believed to be missing actress Misty Upham. The body and a purse with Upham's ID inside was found during a search by her family members. Upham, who was cast in "August: Osage County," was last seen on Oct. 5. After she went missing, her father said she was bipolar and suffered depression, but was not suicidal. Upham, 32, also appeared in 2008's "Frozen River," for which she won an Independent Spirit Award.
Patrick Carney says U2 'devalued' their music
Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney told the Seattle Times that U2 "devalued their music completely" when they gave away their new album "Songs of Innocence" to every person with an iTunes library (whether anyone wanted it or not). Carney says the move "sends a huge mixed message to bands … that are just struggling to get by. I think that they were thinking it's super generous of them to do something like that." (Speaking of U2, it was revealed this week that lead singer Bono admitted he always wears tinted glasses not because of his rock star status, but because he suffers from glaucoma.) Carney also said the reason the two most recent Black Keys album are not on the streaming service Spotify is because he feels artists are not compensated fairly. "If somebody's making money, then the artist should be getting a fair cut of it," the drummer said. "The owner of Spotify is worth something like 3 billion dollars ... he's richer than Paul McCartney and he's 30 and he's never written a song."
