FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Metal, Hip-Hop, Punk & Crunk – The Penthouse Music Issue Rocks!
Featured: Lollapalooza Lowdown with Perry Farrell, Ice Cube, Avenged Sevenfold, Public Enemy’s Chuck D
(Boca Raton, FL – June 5, 2006) In the July issue of Penthouse, director, actor, screenwriter and executive producer Ice Cube claims there is racism in Hollywood, “You’re gonna face old Hollywood that wants to keep the status quo and then you’ll face people who don’t want you in the game because you’re not a thespian – you even have your own people hating you in various ways.” A man of many talents, Ice Cube is reflective and also talks about working and not working with Dr. Dre, his new album Black.White. and his beef with daytime talk-show queen, Oprah.
Speaking of rappers, a member of Public Enemy, Chuck D was at the forefront of the Hip-Hop revolution with his socially aware and politically charged crew. Today, he makes it clear to Penthouse that he still has his feet in the rap world as he offers his thoughts on the evolution of the culture, “Hip-Hop could stand to learn from other music genres. I think the biggest element missing today is the level of performance. Artists are extremely lazy because record labels neglect to develop whoever they sign.” On whether or not hip-hop has gotten too sexual, Chuck D replies, “Music has always been sexual. But now, information is so accessible to the youth audience, there’s no borderline between the sexual knowledge of an 11-year-old and a 30-year-old.”

IT’S A BIRD, IT’S A PLANE…NO, IT’S SUPERMAN RETURNS DIRECTOR BRYAN SINGER! On June 30th, X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer is bringing the world’s biggest superhero back to the silver screen. That’s right, ‘the man in blue’ returns (in what seems destined to be this summer’s blockbuster hit) and Singer discusses the “comic genius” of his work and the ever identifiable Superman. “Bullets bounce off of Superman, not a suit…I’m not dissing Batman, I love Batman, but Superman is Superman -he doesn’t need a bunch of equipment.” A character with universal appeal, the target audience is both young and old, but with a surprising twist. “I guarantee there will be no shortage of action, but beneath all that, for lack of a better expression, this will be the closest thing to a ‘chick flick’ that I’ve ever directed,” says Singer.
The July Penthouse issue goes on-sale at newsstands, or at: www.penthouse.com/digital tomorrow, June 6, 2006. The new edition features smokin’ cover girl Aria Giovanni and July Pet, Lexie Karlsen, from Arizona.
