The new Doctor Strange is out and has dominated the box office since its debut two weeks ago. The film has grossed close to $300 million in North America alone and had the 11th biggest opening weekend in history with $187 million. During the press run for the movie, MYX was invited to do a virtual junket with four-time Oscar nominee and iconic composer Danny Elfman.
VJ Ai had the honor of taking a few minutes with the legendary composer (Spider-Man, Men in Black, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) to talk about the music and scoring behind "Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness." Check out the MYXclusive interview below and see what it was like working on this project during the pandemic.
The world has been in shock since the sudden passing of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. The world-renowned drummer was found dead at the age of 50 in Bogotá, Colombia after suffering from cardiovascular collapse. Medical authorities at the scene attempted to resuscitate Hawkins but were ultimately unsuccessful. The band was in town to perform at the Festival Estéreo Picnic but has since canceled all remaining tour dates to mourn their member’s tragic passing.
An official statement from the band’s Twitter account reads: "The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins. His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever. Our hearts go out to his wife, children, and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time."
The life and legacy of Taylor Hawkins will live on forever thanks to his timeless contributions to rock 'n' roll and music in its entirety. Here at MYX, to celebrate his life, we wanted to share a personal message from MYX VJ AI and her 2017 interview with the Foo Fighters. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family, friends, and fellow fans of Taylor Hawkins.

LITZ has announced their official debut slated for March this year. The initial debut date was set for February, but an announcement on their social platforms with a 30-second teaser has seemed to cement a March debut. The pre-debut release of their rendition of James Reid's "NATATARANTA" has created a great buzz on social and was a great start to build their fanbase. The teaser they recently released looks like we will continue to see the group's glitz, glam, and strong dance forward visuals and artistry.
If you missed it, LITZ was recently on an episode of MYXclusive with VJ Ai that trended on Twitter. They were joined by Esseca, and Jom & Crakky from ALLMO$T. Check out the interview below and see how this jam-packed MYXclusive went.
