The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Marvin Gaye's son has slammed an in-the-works biopic about his father - and is asking singer Lenny Kravitz to reconsider starring in it, TMZ reports.



The film, which according to TMZ is tentatively titled Sexual Healing, will take place primarily during the 1980s and will focus on the late singer's drug use and depression during that time. (Gaye was shot and killed by his father in 1984.)

"The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful ," Marvin Gaye III tells TMZ. "[They're] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don't even know the whole story."



To top it off, the younger Gaye's childhood friend and classmate, Kravitz, has been cast in the lead role.



"I would hope [Kravitz] doesn't have any idea that we are against this film being done," Gaye III said, adding that he and his family are taking legal steps to stop the production from going forward.
