  • THE PRETTY RECKLESS HAVE ACOUSTIC ALBUM IN THE WORKS

    The Pretty Reckless are working on an acoustic album, according to an interview singer Taylor Momsen did with a North Carolina radio station. Although it's only been six months since the band issued its Going To Hell album, Momsen revealed, "We just recorded an acoustic version of a medley. It's how we originally wrote the songs, so it's kind of an inside take, or look, into how Going To Hell actually started. 'Cause everything started acoustically."

    • Momsen added, "If you can't play it all the way through, front to back, on an acoustic guitar, then it's not a good enough song to bring in the band."
    • Guitarist Ben Phillips told us that The Pretty Reckless doesn't have one set way to write a song: "I think the purpose is the only consistency. Our purpose is to hopefully come up with a really unique, clever, good quality idea that could last years, years and years of playing and touring and whatever. We'll sit with things to see if we like it, we'll drop it -- so we really have an ethic of how we want the songs to come out." in Mobile, Alabama.

  • KORN TO PERFORM ENTIRE FIRST ALBUM FOR 20TH ANNIVERSARY

    Korn plans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the group's debut album by performing the disc from start to finish at selected shows on its upcoming tour itinerary. Davis told a Philadelphia radio station, "We're gonna start doing, on festivals, we're gonna play the first album in its entirety. We're gonna start doing that. We're even gonna play (the song) 'Daddy.' And I said I would never do it, but I'm gonna do it anyway. So we're gonna do the complete album in its entirety and then tag on some songs at the end of the show. So it should be pretty cool."

    • Korn has never performed "Daddy" live, since the song is about Davis' painful memory of being molested as a child.
    • Davis told us that he's amazed at where Korn is after 20 years: "I'm still blown away that it's been 20 years and we're still relevant, still making music, that people kind of don't count us out as just some nostalgic act, playing casinos and fairs the rest of our lives. You know, it's, we're still doing big things, which I'm very happy. I think everybody in the band feels the same way." , returning on October 3rd.

  • VINNIE PAUL SAYS HE'S 'FOUND PEACE' 10 YEARS AFTER DIMEBAG DARRELL'S DEATH

    This December will mark the 10th anniversary of the death of Pantera and Damageplan guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, and in a new interview on wrestler Chris Jericho's podcast, Darrell's brother and bandmate, Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, says he's finally "found peace" with the tragedy. Paul said, "I’m still here, and I will do everything and anything I can to carry on the legacy and the tradition that my brother always had . . . I don’t wanna remember it, I don’t wanna think about it. It’s hard. It’s hard. But I’ve found peace."

    • Vinnie said about his late brother, "The thing that turned him on the most in this world was putting a smile on other people's faces. It didn't matter where it was, when it was, how it was, whether it was playing his guitar, whether it was shaking a hand, signing an autograph, giving him a pick, just saying hi. That was the most important thing in his life -- making other people smile."
    • Vinnie told us a while back that Dimebag always held himself to a high standard as a guitarist: "He was always giving everything he had. He wanted to be everything Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads were together, and then there was this rhythm guitar player that blew him away named James Hetfield...he never stop striving for that, even up 'til the end. He was always striving to be the best guitar player he could ever be, period." .

  • SARAH SILVERMAN SLAMS TABLOID STORY ABOUT MARRIAGE

    Sarah wrote, "Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married. Why would I want the govt involved in my love life? Ew. It's barbaric. That s**t never bothers me b/c who cares but I feel like this one is bigoted. The Jew girl MUST want a RING! Yich."
    She expressed similar views in Playboy back in 2010 saying, "It's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f***ing crazy. It's this superbarbaric, old-timey tradition that no one remembers we don't have to do anymore. I really do believe in love. I've experienced it, I've had it, so I know it's real."

  • JULIETTE LEWIS DEFENDS SCIENTOLOGY AND TOM CRUISE

    Juliette Lewis insists that there are a lot of misconceptions out there about Scientology. The Kelly & Cal actress recently chatted with The Daily Beast where she defended the religion and the media crusade against Tom Cruise after he spoke out against prescribed medication on the Today show.

    Juliette said, "I'll get all conspiratorial on you. I'm just going to throw this out: The mainstream media is funded by pharmaceutical companies. When you have the biggest movie star in the world at the time -- Tom Cruise -- coming out against anti-depressants and Ritalin and just saying, 'Hey, why don't you put a warning label on there?'...So, when Tom came out about that, I've never seen someone get torn down so hard, and they still brutalize him with Scientology pieces to this day." She continued, "The thing about Scientology is it is anti-drug in that you're seeking relationship or communication tools -- simple basics on how to live better. It's a religious philosophy and self-help movement. And you'll never see a truthful word written about it in mainstream media."

  • CHARLIE SHEEN MAY BE COMING BACK TO 'TWO AND A HALF MEN'

    Could Charlie Harper be making an appearance on the final season of Two and a Half Men? Rumors are circulating that Charlie Sheen and creator Chuck Lorre are both considering the idea even though the character was killed off back in 2011 following a very public battle between Sheen, the show, and the network.

    Charlie told TV Guide, "I've reached out to them and they've reached back. We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."

    • Chuck discussed the possibility of Charlie's return to E! last month saying, "We haven't discussed that, really. We've been really focused on finding a storyline that puts Jon and Ashton front and center in a really interesting, provocative hopefully fun story. That was our priority going into this year, was to do a storyline that puts these two guys right in the middle of it. So outside characters will come in as they do, but that's not the focus."
