Back in February we learned from Trent Reznor himself that Nine Inch Nails was being reformed for an extensive upcoming world tour and at the time, he announced that former Jane’s Addiction member Eric Avery would be NIN‘s new touring bassist. Avery spent most of last year and part of this year touring the world with Garbage and, as a result, has ultimately decided that he cannot commit to hitting the road again with NIN. This is such bummer news ‘cuz Avery is among the most talented bass players around but, honestly, I understand. Click below to read the full text of Avery‘s resignation from NIN and Reznor‘s follow-up response. More »
... After Only A 6 Month Run
Welp … that’s that … after only 6 months on the London Westend Stage, the Spice Girls musical Viva Forever! will close at the end of June. After a lavishing opening back in December with all 5 of the Spice Girls in attendance, the show was riddled with scathing reviews and, apparently, they were enough to force the show to end early. As far as I’ve heard, Spice Girls fans were charmed by the musical but it would appear that charmed fans aren’t enough to keep the production going. The show has announced that the final performance of Viva Forever! will take place on June 29 then … Peace the Spork Out, Viva Forever! More »

Sad news to pass along today … it was reported yesterday that longtime marrieds Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have separated after their relationship, reportedly, suffered under the strain of financial problems. Additionally, Ozzy posted information on his official Facebook profile that suggests the couple’s problem may not entirely be related to money woes. Apparently, the pair have been living apart for some time now and while no reports of divorce are on the horizon, it’s not a good sign that the couple are choosing to live apart :( More »
150 People Laid Off Today
Yikes! Back in October we learned that the Walt Disney Company purchased Lucasfilm (along with all it’s subsidiaries and properties) and until now, the deal sounded like a good one for all of the Lucas employees … but today, we learn that Disney has decided to shut down the entire LucasArts video game division. The move means that some 150 people have lost their jobs and all current projects from LucasArts have been cancelled. Yikes! Click below to learn more. More »

LMAO!!! Selena Gomez was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman last night to promote her new film Spring Breakers and when Letterman broached the subject of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, well, Selena had a little fun at The Biebs‘s expense. Letterman set Selena up perfectly for a hilarious zinger (which looks too perfect to be unplanned) that you simply have to watch for yourselves. Check out the embed above and join in the fun. LOL!
Sigh. It would seem that Morrissey‘s 2013 US Tour is just not meant to be. After severe illness caused Morrissey to postpone months of shows at the start of the year (including a show I was supposed to see back home in Michigan), he triumphantly performed a string of shows here in SoCal in front of sold out venues of fans (I was lucky enough to attend 3 of those shows — in San Diego, in LA and at Hollywood High School). Unfortunately, Morrissey‘s return to the concert stage was short-lived because earlier this week he had to cancel his performance in San Francisco due to a bout of double pneumonia. Last night, Morrissey released a statement that is sure to break hearts all across the country … due to his continued illness, he has been forced to cancel completely the rest of his US Tour :( More »

The Couple Has 'Amicably' Parted Ways
One of the celebrity couples that we often see hitting the red carpet together, and sharing adorable pictures on Twitter (they even dressed up as Bonnie & Clyde for Hallowe’en) has decided to call it quits. Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough are going their separate ways, and there are, apparently, no hard feelings. This was a good-looking couple and I’ve enjoyed seeing them all dressed up and fabulous together, but alas. That time is done. Click inside to learn more.
"I don’t think it’s gonna happen at all"
Since 2010 (at least) we’ve been hearing reports of the forthcoming production and release of 24: The Movie and back in 2011 we heard that the movie would “definitely” be released in 2012. Well, 2012 came and went and the movie hasn’t even started filming production. Last year we heard that the movie would come to life sometime in 2013 but now, according to director Antoine Fuqua we’re hearing that the 24 movie probably won’t happen at all … WHICH REALLY SUCKS!

Peace the Spork Out
Alas … the time has come to say goodbye (once again) to the kids from West Beverly High on the tween CW drama 90210. Yes, after 5 seasons of marginal entertainment, The CW has decided to pull the plug on the series and bring to a close the on-going story of Annie, Dixon, Naomi, Silver, Teddy and the rest of the gang on 90210. As you may know, 90210 is a sequel series of sorts that picked up many years after the end of the hugely popular series Beverly Hills, 90210 ruled the TV airwaves. This May’s season 5 finale will also be the series finale as 90210 says goodbye … for good. More »

Remember early last year when we first heard that unlikely couple Michelle Williams and Jason Segel were a hot new item? Remember when they finally went public and let the world know that they were in lurve? Well, it looks like memories are all we have now that the couple have decided to break-up. According to a new report today, Michelle and Jason decided to call it quits earlier this month … which is a total bummer because even tho they seemed like an unlikely couple, I really loved them together. But, alas, it wasn’t meant to be … Michelle and Jason are dunzo. More »
