He must want bogan chicks not just hippie chicks

Weiwei is going to make a heavy metal album, widening his appeal:

Artist and political activist Ai Weiwei is set to release an album, which will be influenced by heavy metal.

Being a sculptor, photographer, filmmaker and architect isn’t enough for the Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei. He is now planning to add rock star to his long list of job titles.

Ai, who designed the Beijing National Stadium, made a recent foray into pop stardom with his take on Gangnam Style, a pastiche of the single by Korean musician Psy. 

The artist’s album is due for release in two months and is currently in its final stages of production.

Ai has admitted that he didn’t play an instrument: “I sing and I wrote the songs. It’s about my condition and China’s condition.”

“My favourite band will be myself,” he added.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
