Audio Story Ideas????

I am not very sure on what to do for my audio story. I have been brainstorming and have not yet been able to come up with a set topic for my the story. Since my beat is music, it shouldn't be that hard, but I can't quite find a good story idea.

Here is what I was thinking about:
-Covering a band or singer on campus
-Covering a dorm life music (people playing the piano in my building/my RA)
*natural sound of them playing

I think I need to do more

Pop Controversy Turns Fans Sour

Recently, fans from around the world were hit with startling news of two of the most popular artist in music industry, Chris Brown and Rihanna. One of Hollywood's most famous couples dampened the spirts of many fans with the news of an assult crime between the two celebrities followed by the photo release of a battered and bruised Rihanna. Since then fans have been left with a decision on whether to continue to support the young pop stars or discontinue listening and supporting Chris Brown all together. However, this weekend the world was shocked again to here that Brown and the alleged victim Rihanna have reconciled. Here is howMTV News is reporting the reactions from the fans:

"Abuse is abuse," Duaanne wrote on the site. "What are you telling the young kids of the world??? It don't matter what their names are. He's a beater. ... Pictures don't lie."

Hpfan8795 put it more bluntly: "If she goes back with him, she is an idiot."

Highroller33138 said, "Chris Brown, you may con your way back into Rihanna's heart but your career will NOT con your way back into our wallets," YesWeCan warned. "YOUR CAREER IS FINISHED!"

However some fans backed Brown saying...."If she is being mature enough to work through this with Chris, it is something everyone should support if you are a true fan.

As a die-hard fan of both Chris Brown and Rihanna, I feel that fans are entitled to be outraged at how the recent events have transpired between the two stars. Fans can only go by what is being reported in the media (tabloids) and as public figures I agree that both stars have not set a great example as far as explaining to the public the entire story given their statuses and the evidence (photos) that have been leaked. The MTV article does a great job at explaining how fans feel from those who support the stars' actions and those who will not. The direct quotes from comments, left on the website's blog, painted a good picture of how fans really feel about the future of the Brown and Rihanna's career. I believe all we can do is wait and see how the celebrities reconciliation affects the legal aspect of the situation.
