The Black Crowes Have Broken Up

"It is with great disappointment and regret ..."

Bummer news for fans of the rock band the Black Crowes … according to a statement released by guitarist Rich Robinson, the band has officially broken up. It turns out that there has been some infighting in the band about group membership, stake in the band and of course money and because things have reached an impasse, Robinson says, the band has to break up. I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of the Black Crowes but I’ve always respected their work and really do like many of their big singles. It’s sad that the group’s legacy has to be tarnished by this messy-sounding break up but … such is rock ‘n roll. More »

Despite Being Dead For 53 Years, Marilyn Monroe Has Been Named The New Face Of Max Factor Cosmetics

The late starlet is now a "global brand ambassador"

Last summer, Gwyneth Paltrow was hired as the celebrity spokesmodel for Max Factor Cosmetics. Today we learn that the company has selected someone more, well, dead as their newest celebrity spokesmodel. In spite of the fact that Marilyn Monroe has been dead for 53 years and, at this point, doesn’t have the need to wear cosmetics (or, you know, have the need to have a face), she has been selected as the celebrity global brand ambassador for Max Factor. And, yes, while Marilyn is a legendary icon of beauty and glamor, I’m not sure how much sense it makes for a cosmetics company selling products to the living to “hire” a dead person to peddle their wares.

"You are The Love of My Life."

Last week we learned the very sad news that MTV star Diem Brown (from the Real World/Road Rules Challenges) lost her long battle with cancer and passed away at the age of 32. Today we learn that Diem‘s boyfriend Chris Tamburello, also an MTV challenge star better known as CT, shared a very sweet, very poignant memorial message for Diem on his official Instagram profile. Altho the couple had broken up a few years ago, I understand they got back together more recently … which is why her death is much more painful for him, I’m sure. More »

Low Blood Oxygen

Last month it was speculated that Joan Rivers may have died due to a screw-up at the medical clinic where she was being treated for a throat procedure.

According to the final report released by the medical examiner, Joan‘s death came about due to low blood oxygen to her brain while she was under Propofol sedation. The report goes on to list “predictable complications” as her cause of death, which essentially means her death came from a known risk that occurs whenever any patient is sedated during a medical procedure (i.e. not a homicide).
