Film review: Beware of Mr Baker and Fast and Furious 6 - Furious Ginger packs a punch, but Vin Diesel is out of gas

A documentary about a rock drummer might seem more suited to BBC4 than to your local cinema, but most rock-docs don't open with their subject – in this case, Ginger Baker – cracking the director across the nose with his walking stick. Not a man who has ever needed an excuse to assault someone, Baker is incensed to learn that said director, Jay Bulger, is planning to interview some of his old associates, but in the event he had nothing to worry about.

The President says she is a bully. Madonna says the President is a liar. So how did a mercy mission go so horribly wrong?

When the Beach Boys sang about "Disney Girls" back in 1971, the very phrase evoked a world of "Earlier nights and pillow fights … Open cars and clearer stars". Mention Disney girls these days, and chances are it will be in the context of one scandal or another.

My 'The Best of Bond' CD died for Queen and country. Sung along to with abandon, played to destruction, it died nobly. But few recent Bond songs have come close to the high points (and notes) of Shirley Bassey's bests ("Diamonds are Forever"! "Moonraker"!) or Lulu's subtle way with a lyric ("He has a powerful WEAPON, he charges a million a SHOT").

At 53, the queen of pop has set her sights on retaining her crown from young pretenders ‑ but in truth, it's all starting to feel like hard work

When Madonna flashed her right breast during a concert in Istanbul last week, it was yet another feat of daring to add to her already rich back-catalogue of provocative self-promotion. The megastar, 53, has made headlines in the past for a sharing a kiss with Britney Spears and for seducing a black Jesus in the video for her 1989 song "Like A Prayer". In 1990, she was threatened with arrest by the Canadian authorities for a segment of her Blonde Ambition tour in which she appeared to masturbate on-stage. And in 1994, she published a coffee table book called Sex with the photographer Fabien Barron, which left little to the imagination.

We are overrun with singer-songwriters but you'd think a virtuoso violinist and whistler who sings about pollination and Petri dishes would stand out.

Popular songs about contemporary fads can be hit-and-miss affairs. For every "Surfin' USA" that captures the zeitgeist and endures in its own right, there is a "Convoy", those novelty records that sound laughable as soon as the trend (in this case, CB radio) passes its sell-by date.
