Ashlee Simpson Wipes The Inkblots From Her Slate

Maura | March 19, 2008 - 11:25 am

After much giggling over its arcade-photo-booth inkblots and bad font, Ashlee Simpson and her label have decided to make the cover for her forthcoming album, Bittersweet World, a little less k-razy. More »

Leona Lewis Gets Touched By An Oprah

Maura | March 19, 2008 - 10:50 am

When I heard that next Brit thing Leona Lewis was on Oprah earlier this week–complete with Oprah proclaiming that “a star was born” after her performance of “Bleeding Love”–I was going to set up a post about how it might affect her album sales, only to find out that the domestic version of her… More »

I’m hoping that the pubilc’s seemingly insatiable thirst for nude pictures of celebrities and/or their sex tapes will end sometime soon, and I can’t help but think that pictures of Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam D. More »

“American Idol” And The Sound Of Many Broken Wings Flapping

Maura | March 19, 2008 - 9:30 am

American Idol was pretty rough last night, wasn’t it? Somehow the producers got it in their heads that what the public really wanted to see was another night of the contestants giving the Beatles catalog another go, to the point where they reportedly switched up the whole show with only a few hours to spare… More »

This may be hard to believe, but reports have Beyonce being more concerned with not getting her weave wet than with the plight of children who decide to wait out in the rain for hours in hopes of getting an autograph from her. More »

Motley Crue’s “Colossal” Announcement May Be Just As Much Of A Letdown As We Thought

Maura | March 19, 2008 - 8:50 am

It would seem that next month’s big Motley Crue announcement, which was teased in this space earlier this week, may in fact involve touring, with the band taking the ball that’s been dropped by the flailing Ozzfest and launching the first annual Cruefest, an innovatively named tour that will have Nikki, Vince, Tommy, and Mick… More »

Radiohead will play two shows at London’s BBC Radio Theatre on April 1, and the timing of the gigs makes me wonder if they actually have some sort of April-Fooling trick up their sleeves for at least one of them. Perhaps a “Don’t Look Back”-styled tribute to Pablo Honey? More »

Getting Urgent With Johnny Foreigner

Michaelangelo Matos | March 19, 2008 - 5:10 am

Often, when we post videos they’re either brand new or nostalgia-baiting old. This will be an exception. Johnny Foreigner is a U.K. trio whose new single, “Our Bipolar Friends,” has recently landed in the U.K. Indie Chart–not in itself a big deal (the U.K. indie chart changes over by about half every week), but when… More »

Rick Ross Is Making Dollars

Maura | March 19, 2008 - 4:45 am

Rick Ross is owed an apology. His latest album, Trilla, sold 198,000 copies in its first week on shelves, and it debuted at No. 1 on this week’s SoundScan chart, beating out such comers as the always-durable Now collection and the apparently-appealing-to-bloggers-now Snoop Dogg. … More »

“Idol” Grunge Guy May Be Even More Of A Hack Than Previously Thought

Maura | March 19, 2008 - 4:00 am

American Idol’s season-seven “rock dude,” David Cook, has already been accused of ripping off Incubus’ version of Lionel Richie’s “Hello,” and the Beatles catalog is respected enough that every bar band out there has given its own spin to at least one song. So it probably isn’t all that surprising that someone’s crying “ripoff” over… More »
