Welcome to the April 13, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Mumford & Sons want nothing to do with Tidal.
In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the Grammy-winning rock band greeted the mention of Jay Z's much-ballyhooed new artist-owned streaming service — which has the backing of such music superstars as Madonna, Beyonce, Jack White and Rihanna — with “a series of loud fart sounds” before being slammed further by frontman Marcus Mumford, who told the website:
“We wouldn”t have joined it anyway, even if they had asked. We don”t want to be tribal. …A band of our size shouldn”t be complaining. And when they say it”s artist-owned, it”s owned by those rich, wealthy artists.” Or as guitarist Winston Marshall called them: “New school fucking plutocrats.”
Wait, is that a compliment?
Want more? There's plenty of indignation to go around. See below for a full roundup of today's kerfuffles.
Outraged: Madonna haters
Why: Madonna's awkward onstage kiss with Drake at Coachella on Sunday unleashed the Madonna-bashing hordes on social media, with some even going so far as to imply that the “Rebel Heart” boss sexually assaulted the Toronto rapper.
