  • Ozzy Osbourne told Rolling Stone in a new interview that he has no desire to make a country music album in the vein of recent efforts from Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Staind's Aaron Lewis. The Black Sabbath singer explained, "Not me, thank you. Personally, I think you should stick to what you know best. If Steven's having a good time with it, who am I to complain? But it would be absurd for me to do that. I don't mind country, but the 'Prince Of Darkness' with a cowboy hat? I'm a rock and roller, not a f**king country bumpkin."

    • Ozzy does intend to record a new solo album following the end of Sabbath's farewell tour, which is currently scheduled to wind down in February 2017.
    • Asked whether he wants to hang up his microphone for good, Ozzy said, "I don't know if I want to tour extensively much more, but I will still keep my fingers in the pie. As for singing 'Crazy Train' at 75, we'll see."
    • Ozzy admitted a while back that his voice doesn't always hold up these days: "Sometimes it blows out. I do the best I can. Sometimes I sound terrible, and sometimes it's good, you know. But I'm only human. I mean, I'm honest about it, you know."
    • Ozzy's wife and manager Sharon has hinted recently that she can see Ozzy retiring completely by the age of 70.
    • Ozzy has not released an all-new solo album since 2010's Scream, having spent the last few years recording and touring with Sabbath.

  • Bring Me The Horizon keyboardist Jordan Fish and singer Oli Sykes will climb Mount Kilimanjaro together in order to raise funds for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Southampton, England. The pair launched the trip after Fish's newborn son suffered a brain hemorrhage earlier this month and was taken into care at the facility. Fish wrote online, "On the evening of Sunday 21st August, our four-day old baby Eliot suffered what we eventually found out was a brain hemorrhage . . . We called an ambulance in the early hours of the morning and did our best to keep him calm, awake and alive."

    Fish related the trip to the hospital and the eventual discovery of what was ailing his son by doctors, followed by his transference to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where he stayed for five days under 24-hour supervision by what Fish called the "amazing team" there.

    • He added, "While in hospital I decided that I would focus myself on doing something positive for the ward and trying to raise enough money to pay for a new bed for them. Oli asked immediately if he could join me and help raise as much awareness for this cause as possible. In January we will fly to Tanzania where we will climb Mount Kilimanjaro over the course of eight days."
    • The two bandmates' goal is to raise approximately $130,000 for the charity organization Friends Of PICU, which does fund-raising for the unit.
    • As for his son's recovery, Fish said, "We still have a very long way to go and we are taking each day at a time, however he is still alive to fight, he is breathing on his own and we are seeing small improvements every day. He is a little fighter and has shown amazing signs of recovery already, even at this early stage. We owe that completely to the Nurses, Doctors, Neurologists and staff at PICU."
    • Bring Me The Horizon recently reached Number Three on the U.S. rock radio chart with "Happy Song," from the band's fifth album,That's The Spirit. The latest single from the set is called "Avalanche."

  • Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich told RollingStone.com that even though the members of the band are all in their 50s, he doesn't see them retiring at any time soon. Ulrich remarked, "The only unknown is the physical element of it. If the arms and legs and knees and shoulders and throats and all that stuff, the backs, the necks, if all that stays intact, there’s no reason we shouldn’t be able to do this for a significant amount of time longer."

    Speaking of a band like the Rolling Stones who are performing well into their later years, Ulrich added, "I love the Rolling Stones more than anybody else on this planet. Obviously what we do, I’d like to argue, is slightly more physically demanding in terms of the energy that goes into it . . . If you can’t play it at the physical demand that it deserves, it’s better to not play it than play it half-assed. That’s the only unknown. I think mentally we could do this for another 100 years."

    • Frontman James Hetfield told us what keeps him going as a musician after 35 years in the band: "Well, for me writing music is like breathing, and being able to create things in a band that has a huge family out there and a following around the world, and be able to get my confusion and questions and insanity into this music and put out to the rest of the world so people can relate...there's no better thing."
    • The new Metallica album, Hardwired...To Self-Destruct, will arrive on November 18th. The first single, "Hardwired," is out now.
    • Metallica has one upcoming show on its calendar: the band will perform at Neil Young's 30th anniversary Bridge School Benefit concert, set to take place on October 22nd and 23rd at at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California.

  • Pop-punk veterans Jimmy Eat World have followed up last week's unveiling of a new song called "Get Right" with a second new track, this one called "Sure And Certain," as well as details about the release of their ninth studio album. The set is called Integrity Blues and is due to come out on October 21st. The new disc follows up the band's last studio effort, Damage, which came out in 2013.

    • Jimmy Eat World last toured in 2014, when it went out to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the band's fifth studio effort, Futures.
    • With the exception of bassist Rick Burch, who joined in 1995, the lineup of the group has remained the same since its formation in 1993.
    • Frontman Jim Adkins told us a while back that the group never lets commercial concerns dictate how they make music: "There's so many things in the music industry that you have no control over, like, you know, will your record will be critically received well, will it do well commercially, will it get on the radio. I mean, those are all things that even people that compromise everything and just go for those kinds of goals don't have a guarantee that it's gonna work. So we don't think about those elements at all when we're working."
    • Among the band's many Top 10 hits at Modern Rock radio are "Big Casino," "My Best Theory," "Sweetness" and the chart-toppers "Pain" and "The Middle."
    • "The Middle" gained a new lease on life earlier this year when it appeared in an Apple Music ad starring Taylor Swift, in which she lip-synced to the song. Apple reported a 1,500 percent sales increase for the track after the ad premiered, while Pandora reported a 325 percent jump in streams.

  • Rumors continue to swirl around Guns N' Roses fan sites that returning guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have been doing some work on a batch of new songs. According to Alternative Nation, the Axl Rose unofficial fan club site claims that the pair have worked on six new tracks, although Axl himself has yet to lay down any vocals. The rumor also states there will be special appearances on five tracks, but did not say who would turn up.

    • Earlier reports have suggested that Slash and McKagan were completing unfinished tracks left over from the sessions for Chinese Democracy, the 2008 Guns effort that took 13 years to record and featured only Rose out of the original lineup. There were a number of songs -- possibly an entire album's worth -- from those sessions that were left off the record.
    • A source on GNRTruth claimed, "I am under the impression that many of the songs from the group of songs we think of as the ‘second half’ of Chinese are still intended for release. Slash & Duff did some studio work on a couple of them, which will hopefully be released on a 'best of' collection later this year."
    • It is not known whether the current Guns lineup -- which includes original members Axl, Slash and Duff, along with four side players -- intends to write and record a new full-length studio album. The last set to feature those three core members was 1993's covers collection, "The Spaghetti Incident?"
    • Guns N' Roses just completed a North American summer stadium tour and will head to South America later this fall before hitting Japan, New Zealand and Australia in early 2017.

    OPRAH WANTS STEDMAN TO CARRY HER TO THE POOL: Oprah wants her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, to carry her to the pool now that she has dropped some pounds under the Weight Watchers plan. She joke at the premiere of OWN's Queen Sugar on Monday (August 29th,) "I would like him to pick me up and carry me to the pool. I've lost enough weight, he can pick me up and carry me to the pool.

    KALEY CUOCO SPEAKS ABOUT COMMON INTERESTS WITH HER NEW BOYFRIEND: Kaley Cuoco is enjoying dorky dates with her new man, Karl Cook. She discussed her shared interest in horses with Karl during a chat with People saying, "It's funny, he's either the one riding or it's me, so we're rarely doing it together. But recently we did go on a little trail ride date. It was adorable. We hadn't really done that yet. One is usually cheering for the other so that was kind of cute to go out together. We totally held hands. It was very dorky!" The Big Bang Theory star added, "When you share something so special, some sort of connection -- for us, it's horses, but anything two people share -- you have that common goal and you know that you want the same things in life, day to day, and in the future. It just sets you on a better path. Having a lot in common is really important and we definitely have a lot in common. I think that that's what makes us so strong and really happy." She and Karl have been linked since the spring.

    SCOTT EASTWOOD DENIES 'FAST 8' SET DRAMA: Scott Eastwood claims he did not see any on-set drama between Vin Diesel and The Rock while making Fast 8. He recently told Entertainment Tonight, "I had a great time working on the film. I don't know anything about that stuff." Scott added, "We had barbecues like every day on set. Tyrese would put on barbecues for everybody. We'd go run out and shoot a scene and come back and listen to music and eat grilled chicken." It is rumored that The Rock and Vin will bring their alleged beef to WrestleMania.

    COLTON HAYNES ACCEPTS 'HRC VISIBILITY AWARD': Arrow star Colton Haynes accepted the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award and his emotional acceptance speech went viral on Tuesday (August 30th.) He told the crowd, "I have experienced a lot of 'wow' moments in my life, but I think tonight is probably topping all of them. I just want to thank all of you for letting me feel your love. I hope you feel mine. It's taken me a long time to get here, so I hope you feel that." The 28-year-old went on to say, "I'm asked to play so many different roles as an actor. Tonight, I can actually be myself. It feels incredible. I feel lucky just knowing that we have such a strong, fierce, united community that believes as I do that equality is our birthright. It's not a slogan. I don't necessarily feel especially deserving of this recognition. We all know that there are many other ways, many other people who have come before me and blazed the trail as LGBT advocates and role models. And I'm walking in their shoes and I'm following their lead. Instead, I'll accept this award as a promise. My promise is simple and real, and I'm not making it to you -- I'm making it to the next generations of lesbians and gay men, bisexuals, and transgender youth, and I hope my example will give them the confidence and hope to be who they are as well, and for them to conquer their own fears and their own hesitations." Colton publicly came out earlier this year but was criticized for the way he did it by The Real O'Neals actor Noah Galvin.

  • WILLOW AND JADEN SMITH HAVE NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR EACH OTHER AND THEIR PARENTS

    Most teenagers rebel against their parents a bit when they reach a certain age but 15-year-old Willow and 18-year-old Jaden Smith have nothing but love for Will and Jada. They chat with Pharrell Williams in the new issue of Interview magazine where he asks about their family connection.

    When asked about their biggest inspirations, Willow reveals, "My parents. Growing up, all I saw was my parents trying to be the best people they could be, and people coming to them for wisdom, coming to them for guidance, and them not putting themselves on a pedestal, but literally being face-to-face with these people and saying, 'I'm no better than you, but the fact that you're coming to me to reach some sort of enlightenment or to shine a light on something, that makes me feel love and gratitude for you.' They always give back what people give to them. And sometimes they keep giving and giving and giving. And some people don't feel like they need to give anything back because it's like, 'Oh, if you're famous, you can just keep giving, and it doesn't matter.' It's not just about money. It's not just about giving people gifts or whatever. What my parents have given to me is not anything that has to do with money or success or anything that society says people should be focusing on -- it's something spiritual that only certain people can grasp and accept. And that's how I act and move in the world today." Jaden echoes his sister's words adding, "I 100 percent agree with Willow on that one. My parents are definitely my biggest role models. And that's where me and Willow both pull all of our inspiration from to change the world. It all comes from a concept of affecting the world in a positive way and leaving it better than it was than when we came."

    • Willow also discusses her connection with Jaden saying, "It's crazy, the sibling dynamic. I could've spent my entire childhood like, 'I have to love this person.' And it becomes a chore. But our parents were never like, 'You have to love them.' It was more like, 'You have your life. He has his life. And when you guys want to come together, when you guys want to commune, that's up to you.' And throughout us realizing ourselves and realizing each other, we just opened our eyes and were like, 'Damn, you are the yin to my yang.' Not a lot of siblings have that opportunity, because they're always being pushed together so much. They need their time apart in order to realize themselves and realize who they are."

  • KATHARINE MCPHEE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO BE SINGLE

    Katharine McPhee is single for the first time in a long time and she doesn't exactly know how to handle it. The American Idol alum and Scorpion star appears in the new issue of Ocean Drive magazine where she discusses getting back into the dating scene following her divorce and most recent breakup from co-star Elyes Gabel.

    Katharine explains, "I have not been single for very much of my life. I don't really understand how to date or how to be single. As soon as I know that I don't really want to be in a relationship with somebody, I don't really care to keep it going. I'm trying to date in a way that doesn't lock me down." The 32-year-old adds, "There is still a certain level of attachment with the prior relationship that I was in, so emotionally to be suddenly dating other people is not as easy. People say, 'You just need to hook up with a bunch of people,' but I am more of an in-love kind of person. I want to be in love with one person. I'm a one-man kind of gal and a kind of true romantic at heart."

    • She also addresses her six-year marriage to Nick Cokas which ended in 2014 just a few months after she was photographed kissing Smash director Michael Morris. Katharine says, "I feel pretty grounded. I got married really young, and then divorced, and in the last couple of years, I felt like, 'Wow, this is what I should have been doing when I was 20 instead of planning a wedding.' But I don't have any regrets. All of the choices I made I learned from in a really deep way. I have always been fortunate to have strong influences in my life who have forced me to look at my own choices and my own failures. I think we are all on that journey to have more awareness about who we are as a person and to grow and learn."

  • REPORT: LARRY AND SHAWN KING ARE FAKING THEIR HAPPINESS

    Larry and Shawn King have gone on record to call reports of her cheating just rumors and claim to be in a good place after 19 years of marriage. Sources tell People magazine, however, that they are just covering up their "sham" relationship.

    One insider claims, "This is an emotional facade they've been putting on for years. They're still miserable, arguing and sleeping in separate rooms, yet they continue perpetuating a front for the cameras." Another source addressed Larry's denial saying, "It's laughable. People in his inner circle know the truth. It's beyond absurd."

    • Larry is supposedly just staying with his seventh wife because he is scared of being alone at his age. He is 82.
    • He said on Hallmark's Home & Family last week, "It's an interesting word, 'rumor.' You know, I'm been in the business -- next May'll be 60 years -- and I've dealt with rumors a long time, interviewed people involved with rumors. Rumors are what they are -- they're rumors. And I tell you the truth: I don't pay any attention to them."
