Bob Dylan's the Jay-Z of his time, says rapper grandson

Folk rock legend Bob Dylan’s 15-year-old grandson is getting into the music business for himself on the hip-hop side, according to AllHipHop.com.

Pablo Dylan (son of Jesse Dylan) shows off his skills as a rapper and producer on his new collection, “10 Minutes.” And while their sounds aren’t exactly similar, the youngster can relate to his granddad.

"I consider him the Jay-Z of his time,” the teen says. “Of course, we do two different things and I don't want people to see me for what he has done. But what I have done is definitely influenced by him."

'Entourage' premiere: What's the verdict?

Knowing that "Entourage" can have its ups and downs, was the last season premiere everything you were hoping it would be?

CNN's Gavin Godfrey found the premiere to be somewhat underwhelming, doing little more than setting up the season to come, and our tweeps chimed in with their thoughts, up above. (Anyone else agree that watching last night's show kinda made them miss Vince the addict?)

As for critics, the New York Daily News seems to agree with some of you who thought these final eight episodes couldn't have arrived sooner.

Adele: 'Grateful to be inspired by' Winehouse

Two days after Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home, Adele took to her blog to commemorate her peer’s life and influence on the industry.

“Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blasé about the whole thing,” the British artist wrote. “I don’t think she ever realized just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming.”

Adele also praised the “Rehab” singer for her genuine spirit: “If she wanted to do something she would and if she didn’t she’d say f-- off. It came easy to her and that’s why we all loved her so much. We believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them.

Director talks next year's Snow White face-off

Moviegoers will see double at the theaters next year as two "Snow White" movies are rolled out within weeks of each other, but at least they'll see Relativity Pictures' version of Snow White first, says director Tarsem Singh.

Singh's take on the tale stars Lily Collins as the fair princess, Armie Hammer as the prince and Julia Roberts as the evil queen, and is currently scheduled for a March, 2012 release. Meanwhile, Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman," starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White, "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman, Sam Claflin as the prince and Charlize Theron as the cruel royal, is being prepped for a June, 2012 open.

The thing is, Singh tells New York Magazine's Vulture, that spin on the fairy tale can handle being released second in line, whereas his film....not so much.
