It has long been rumored that Katie Holmes auditioned for the role of Tom Cruise’s missus via the controversial Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is a high-ranking member. That claim has been disputed, but a new blockbuster Vanity Fair article claims that Holmes wasn’t the first choice for Cruise’s wife.
It was a rock and rap collision last night (Sept. 2) in the City of Brotherly Love when Pearl Jam were joined onstage by rapper (and festival creator/curator) Jay-Z for his 2004 smash hit ’99 Problems.’ Pearl Jam were headlining the final night of the first-ever Made in America Festival, held in Philadelphia, when this meeting of musical minds took place.
There’s an old saying that if it’s too loud, you’re too old. However, we’re not so sure that adage applies to the New Hampshire town in this particular case, where a woman was arrested after blaring AC/DC‘s anthem ‘Highway to Hell’ at 1AM.
Colin MacKenzie and Jessica Angel are really into one another and they don’t care who knows it. The amorous couple has annoyed neighbors by having such loud sex that the police have been called to intervene a total of 20 times in the past four months.
Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba has a new gig, and no, he’s not leaving GNR or Sixx: A.M., his other band. He’s been named the celebrity spokesman for BullyVille.com. It’s a cause close to his heart, as he endured a rough upbringing being bullied not by his peers but by his father. Ashba, 39, became involved in this initiative since he lives next door to the site’s founder in Las Vegas and he appreciates the fact that it creates almost a safe haven and offers a supportive resource for kids, something he did not have growing up.
Wounded warriors that may have lost a limb or suffered an injury while serving our county can find a renewed purpose in life and engage in physical activity. The Heroes Project is making sure of that, as it works to help combat-injured vets overcome their individual circumstances by climbing the highest peaks in the world. That’s not only a “feel good” mission but an incredibly badass one as well.
If you’re a Green Day fan, then the next several months are going to be good ones for you, as the band is flooding the marketplace with material. Not all of it is new, either. Ahead of the trio’s upcoming trilogy -’Green Day ¡Uno!’ (Sept. 25), ‘Green Day ¡Dos!’ (Nov. 13) and ‘Green Day ¡Tré!’ (Jan. 15)- the band is also planning a career-spanning, eight-CD box set, due Sept. 4.
Green Day are one of the biggest bands in music in general, regardless of genre. They rose from the ranks of Northern California to Warped Tour perennials to eventually having a musical based on one of their albums (‘American Idiot’). They are about to release a trilogy of albums in the next few months. But it wasn’t always this rosy. Turns out the trio got paid a measly $100 to play Cleveland dive the Euclid Tavern back in 1992, two years before they exploded with ‘Dookie.’
Stage diving. It’s an art and not really a science. Actually, we take that back. It is an art and a science, since biology factors in when the adrenaline takes over. That means that listening to one’s brain often goes out the window, all in the name of ROCK! Music is a powerful motivator, and as you can see from this mash-up video of epic stage dives, compiled by our friends at Loudwire, music can drive rock stars to do some pretty crazy things.
