InterscopePhillip Phillips's new album Collateral is out now. For the past three years, the American Idol champ was tied up in a legal battle against Idol’s parent company, 19 Entertainment, and wasn't allowed to release any music. But there was silver lining: He says in a weird way, it helped his marriage. Phillip married his longtime girlfriend Hannah in October of 2015, while the suit was in progress, and at first, it was rough because he essentially had nothing to do.
Ruven AfanadorThinking about what your own funeral will be like is pretty morbid, but Sam Smith evidently wants to make sure that his will be quite the party. He says he's already planned it, and he promises, "It's gonna be fabulous." During Sam's appearance on the Australian TV show The Project, one of the anchors joked that Sam's music is so heartbreaking that if Sam died, and they played his own music at the funeral, it'd be the saddest thing ever.
Pamela LittkyFall Out Boy's new album M A N I A is finally here and it's pretty eclectic, as you may have noticed based on the handful of tracks the band released ahead of time. But according to singer Patrick Stump, that's just part of "what we do here in Fall Out Boy." Stump acknowledges that the album is "very all over the place," from the EDM of "Young and Menace" to the tropical feel of "HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON'T" to the pop/punk energy of "Wilson (Expensive Mistakes).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
