Posted on

FILMING: THE B-52’S WILL BE THE BC-52’S IN THE FLINTSTONES MOVIE (MAY ’94). THE BAND WROTE AND PERFORM ”THE TWITCH,” A SONG THAT’S ”THE DANCE CRAZE OF BEDROCK,” SAYS FRONTMAN FRED SCHNEIDER. THEY ALSO SING A REVAMPED VERSION OF THE THEME SONG. U PENDING: POSSIBLY YOU’LL SEE SNOOP DOGGY DOGG’S DEBUT ALBUM SOMETIME THIS FALL. WOULD THE TWO-MONTHS-AND-COUNTING DELAY HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH SNOOP’S ARREST ON MURDER CHARGES? ”ABSOLUTELY NOT,” SAYS THE LABEL’S PUBLICIST. ACCORDING TO HER, IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH DOGGYSTYLE’S EQUALLY TROUBLED PRODUCER, DR. DRE, NOT BEING HAPPY WITH THE MIX. PARTING: BOYZ II MEN HAVE BROKEN UP WITH MICHAEL BIVINS OF BEL BIV DEVOE, WHO DISCOVERED AND MANAGED THEM FOR TWO YEARS. ”THERE HAS BEEN AN AMICABLE CHANGE OF MANAGEMENT,” SAYS A MOTOWN SPOKESMAN. ”IF I SAY ANYMORE, WE’LL BOTH LOOK BAD.” SCORING: JELLYBEAN BENITEZ, PRODUCER TO MADONNA AND WHITNEY HOUSTON, HAS COMPOSED THE THEME FOR THE RICKI LAKE SHOW (THIS MONTH) AND COMPILED THE ’70S SONGS FOR THE CARLITO’S WAY SOUNDTRACK.
