I play basketball with Flea. He’s so incredibly nice and down to earth, I just couldn’t ask him for a picture. So instead I snuck one in, because I’m mature like that. His mom is sick with cancer. So f8cking sad. Anyway, here’s his acceptance speech when the Peppers were being inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. So great.
British graphic artist Storm Thorgerson, who rose to fame after creating several album covers for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Muse, Genesis and many other bands, passed away Thursday at the age of 69. Pink Floyd’s official website broke the news Thursday night posting a statement written by Thorgerson’s family as well as one of their own. According to his family, Thorgerson’s “ending was peaceful and he was surrounded by family and friends.” He had been dealing with cancer for some time though he had made an astonishing recovery from a stroke he had in 2003. Thorgerson was best known for his relationship with Pink Floyd, designing a majority of the cover art for their albums including the “Dark Side of The Moon” cover. source
I stumbled across the Lil Wayne story from last week…where he had some seizure and was rushed to the hospital blah blah. I read some celebrity tweets praying for him, wishing him well… are you f8cking serious? WTF cares about this douche bag. Rick Ross? They should all just go away. They’re the f8cking ones that have helped put our society in the shitter. Just look at this idiot. He should have died. But no. For some reason he didn’t. So now he gets to go on writing awesome lyrics about bitches and hoes. He gets to go on making awesome videos that objectify women and glamorize violence… and people are praying for him? It’s the same sh*t with Whitney Houston. She was a meth head, but nobody talks about that. These pricks add nothing to our society. Drones kill 100′s of innocent children… nobody prays for them. But write lyrics like these… and your a hero worthy of prayer? Mind you, the prayers are coming from Paris Hilton, so maybe God does have a secret plan after all?!

Never mind losers like Bruce Springsteen and Bono who pledge their lives inspiring, helping and contributing to the world around them. They’re suckers. Obviously. Helping others. Now THAT’S funny.
Justin Timbelake proved his ratings prowess, leading NBC’s Saturday Night Live to season highs. Last night’s show, marking Timberlake’s fifth time as host, averaged a 5.9/15 in metered-market households. That was up 23% from last week when Kevin Hart was emcee, and SNL‘s top overnights in 14 months, since January 7, 2012 when the show followed a highly-rated primetime NFL playoff game. In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, last night’s SNL, on which Timberlake also was musical guest, averaged a 3.7/18 in adults 18-49, up 32% from last week and also the show’s highest result in the LPMs since January 7, 2012. source
There have been some mighty horrible renditions of Led Zeppelin‘s Stairway To Heaven, but when Nancy and Ann Wilson of Heart performed the song in front of the three remaining members of the legendary British rock band at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony on Dec. 2, it made Robert Plant cry tears of joy.
#scoutwillis I was listening to Springsteen’s new album, Wrecking Ball. I’ve been a fan for over 30 years, and I think this, his 17th studio album is among his top 5. He’s been tearing it up for 40 years. But I’m becoming bored of him…and funny enough I was just thinking, I wish there was another artist who could take Bruce’s place. And sure enough I stumble upon Scout f8cking Willis. Little rich kid who’s bored so wants to do something fun and different… or maybe it’s her passion! Growing up in Beverly Hills, going to the clubs, all the big parties, I’m inspired just thinking about it all. The world definitely needs another celebrity spawn wannabe. Thank you Scout. I hope you come to a theater near me.
Springsteen’s 17th studio album, wrecking ball drops tomorrow (pardon the pun). jimmy fallon had a tribute week featuring tracks from the album. On one of those nights, bossman himself showed up and the two hammed it up for a little remake of LMFAO’s, Sexy And I Know It. When you break it down with just an acoustic guitar, you realize how stupid the words really are. Here’s the video:
OMG. Rihanna dressed like a hooker and Katy Perry all quirky and cutesie with her dyed blue hair? How crazy! These pics are about as original as this year’s Grammy Awards. Watching Bruce and the E Street Band open the show was particularly sad. Sad because half the audience doesn’t know who he is, and the other half are just there to see Lady Gaga or that Minaj chick… Bruce doesn’t belong with in the same room with all the those hacks. Nor does Macca. And the Beach Boys? Dear God! Just brutal to watch. I wanted to break Mike Love’s fingers during Good Vibrations. Coldplay? Sure, whatever. Like these pics, it’s all contrived crap that we keep buying into every year.
