  • Lady Ga Ga Vanity Fair

    Posted by David Burns


    On being able to trust people:

    "I'm drawn to bad romances. And my song 'Bad Romance' is about whether I go after those sort of relationships or if they find me. I'm quite celibate now; I don't really get time to meet anyone."

    On her experience with drugs:

    "I'm terrified of heroin, but I do a little cocaine on occasion. And when I say occasional, I mean a couple of times a year."

    On going "completely mental":

     "All I will say is I hit rock bottom, and it was enough to send a person over the edge. My mother knew the truth about that day, and she screamed so loud on the other end of the phone, I'll never forget it."

    On her fans wanting to be like her:

    "I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way. I don't want my fans to think they have to be bad to be great. What happened to me is in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster."

    Lady Gaga is known for her sexy outfits and performances, but she actually fears having sex because she thinks it could take away her artistic energy.

    Gaga said: "I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they're going to take my creativity through my vagina."

    Lady Gaga isn't the only pop star to promote abstinence, but she might be the first to say that not having sex helps her creativity.

    Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers and Jordin Sparks have all worn "promise rings" to show their pledge of chastity until marriage.

  • Teen hits 5 deer one year!!

    Posted by David Burns


    A teenager in Des Moines, Iowa earned the nickname "The Deer Magnet" after hitting five deer over the past year.

    The 17 year old girl's string of bad luck started last July when she was driving home from her job at an ice cream shop. She saw the deer for an instant before hitting it.

    Her second hit happened a few months later, while she was driving to church on a Sunday morning.

    The streak continued after she hit her fourth deer. When that happened her pastor's wife told her to start praying before she got into a car.

    The girl was doing just that the other day, when she hit her fifth deer. The crash totaled her minivan.

  • Dead news!

    Posted by David Burns


    A movie is being made about Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia's life before he became the leader of the band.

    Producers announced plans to turn the book "Dark Star: An Oral Biography on Jerry Garcia" into a big-screen film.

    The movie will be like "Nowhere Boy", which looked at John Lennon's youth before he joined the Beatles.

    The movie will look at the period when Garcia was working in coffee shops and playing bluegrass, newly married with a young daughter. The film ends when Garcia leaves to join the Dead.

    It's highly unlikely that the movie will feature the band's music. Instead, there will be more of a "bluegrass, folk ballads and jugband music" feel because that's what was influential at the time.

    The movie's title hasn't been officially announced, but rumor is that it will be called "Dark Star".

    Production could start as early as next year.


    Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart will mark the 15th anniversary of the death of Jerry Garcia with kazoos.

    Mickey is hoping to break the record for largest kazoo ensemble by leading fans in a kazoo rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch at the Cubs-Giants game in San Francisco on August 9th.

    Dead bandmate Bob Weir will perform the national anthem before the game and Garcia's daughter, Annabelle, will throw out the first pitch.

    Fans who buy tickets to a special Jerry Garcia section at the park also get a Jerry Garcia bobblehead wearing in a Giants jacket.


  • Billy Corgan goes down for the count

    Posted by David Burns


    Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan collapsed onstage in Tampa, Florida. He fell into his drummer's kit as the band performed its 1995 hit "Bullet with Butterfly Wings."

    Almost immediately after falling, Billy got back to his feet and continued playing.

    He later Tweeted: "For those that saw me fall during Bullet, that wasn't a stage move or clumsiness, that was me blacking out and wiping out. I have no memory of falling against the drum riser and my guitar cabinet, but I can tell you I've got quite a good bruise and am moving slow."

  • Peas back out on tour!

    Posted by David Burns

    Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am is amazed about his group's tour. He remembers when he and his members made $150 per show and were excited about it.

    He said: "We would jump up and down because we got paid, even though it meant we had to split it with each other and the band, meaning about $20 a piece. Then we got paid $2,000 for a show. And then I remember the first time we got paid a million bucks for an hour. I was like, 'Wow!' That was only four years ago."

    Today, Will.i.am, Fergie, Apl.de.ap and Taboo are selling out arenas. And while other artists are canceling shows because of poor ticket sales, the Peas are having a great year.

    Through the end of June, the E.N.D. tour has made $47.7 million in 54 shows, including 53 sellouts.

    Will.i.am said: "We wanted to tour bigger than we've ever toured before. We started off doing California campuses in 1996, and then after our record deal, our first tour was the Smokin' Grooves tour, our second tour was the Vans Warped tour. We were the first hip-hop group on a punk tour. Then we did the Honda Civic tour. In '99 we went to Europe and toured in small clubs, maybe 200-seaters, followed by a House of Blues tour in America. We toured on this smaller scale for a long time, so it was important to learn how to do a big production for our fans."

  • Forbes power list

    Posted by David Burns


    Forbes is out with their annual celebrity power list and what a shock, Oprah Winfrey has landed at number one. It was actually quite a good year for the ladies, with women taking three of the Top Five spots and six of the Top Ten. Coming in at number two is Beyonce, followed by James Cameron, Lady Gaga and Tiger Woods. (The ranking is determined by income and media presence, something Woods sure knows a lot about this year.) Rounding out the Top Ten are: Britney Spears, U2, Sandra Bullock and Madonna. Last year’s number one, Angelina Jolie isn’t quite as powerful this year. The Salt star fell to number 18.  Click here for the complete list. ht
