Liveblogging the Diane Warren keynote turned out to be impossible due to my phone almost dying but I was able to sneak off a few tweets like this:
“Ann Powers has mentioned the word poptimists to Diane Warren. The worlds are become one. Oh and Diane is a perfect raconteur!”
“Oh and Diane saying that a record label guy saying a song would not be a hit because “kids don’t know what moonlight is” = comedy!”
“Diane Warren trash-talking about Cher’s attitude = amazing. “Whatever, I got paid!””
“Diane Warren on power ballads: “It’s a vampire! You’d have to put a stake through its heart!” Gotta say this has been a great time!”
And it was. Nothing more to add but this photo featuring Diane Warren, Ann Powers and the Oh! Industry folks, who said if I didn’t send them the photo they would complain. And I wouldn’t want them to complain!
