Lily Allen Really Thinks Paris Hilton Sucks

Lily Allen really hates Paris Hilton...just another reason to love Lily and celebrate about Paris' piece of shit music career dying.

Lily said recently: “Five years ago Paris Hilton’s album would have done really well [in the UK], because we didn’t have things like the internet; we didn’t have bands like myself or the Arctic Monkeys.”

“Now people can see [Paris] for what she is, and think, ‘Go away! What makes you think you have a life?’”

“Paris Hilton’s album did really badly over here and I just think it’s so boring and pathetic and it shouldn’t happen. It’s the f**king record companies that sign things like that, and you think, ‘What are you doing? Why are you ruining your own job?’

“It’s just laziness. People cheesy enough to buy albums like that should be killed.”

Three cheers for LILY!

Lily Allen's Dog Is Stolen

While taking a vacation in Jamaica Lily's dog Maggie May was stolen in a friend's van and has not returned. On Lily's MySpace page she posted the following:

I am beside myself with worry because someone has stolen my dog Maggie May this morning.
I am in Jamacia, while i am here Maggie has been looked after by a friend she was stolen out of his van. outside his house, Capel road, Forest gate, London. E7
and no one has seen her since.
Not only am i devastated that my dog has been taken away, but i am also concerned for her wellbeing. She needs an operation on her stomach and is having medical treatment.
there is a reward.
please anyone help.
no one will be angry - me and my family just want Maggie home.

Help Lily...come on! Besides, what would anyone want with a dog?!

Green Day Steals From Oasis?

Noel much as I adore him he just keeps on finding new people to pick on! His lastest victims...GREEN DAY. According to Noel, Wonderwall sounds a little *too* much like "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."

Noel states, "If you listen, you'll find it is exactly the same arrangement as Wonderwall. They should have the decency to wait until I am dead (before stealing my songs). I, at least, pay the people I steal from that courtesy. They consider themselves to be - and I quote - 'a kick-ass rock 'n' roll band'. They could not be less kick-ass if they tried."

Well, listen for yourself. To be honest, I don't really hear it all that much.

Cat Stevens aka Yusuf Islam at Jazz at Lincoln Center

Last night I was lucky enough to catch Cat Stevens aka Yusuf Islam at Jazz at Lincoln Center for what proved to be one of the most incredible performances I had ever seen. Chatting for a bit with Nic Harcourt from KCRW and then performing a set of old favorites and new gems was just mind blowing.

I don't remember the whole set but I do know that the old tracks like "The Wind" and "Peace Train" sounded exactly the way I wanted them to live. I couldn't imagine that he had ever retired from playing live for almost two decades.

Coming out for an unexpected encore and playing "Father and Son" I actually fucking cried. I couldn't deal with how emotional the whole night was, the performance and the fact that Cat Stevens Yusuf whatever has been blessed with an ability to really tell a story through music and reach a part of a person that most artists can't even fathom.

If you have never listened to Cat Stevens I would highly recommend my two favorite albums, Tea For The Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat but hearing new songs off of An Other Cup got me equally as excited to really sit down and fall in love with it.

I can't expess how wonderful this performance was. To hear it in full go HERE

And We Thought Pete Doherty Had The Best Drug Connections?!

Apparently NOT! The only thing Pete misses about his old band, The Libertines is his ex-band mate Carl Barat and his drugs contacts. Restarting the old feud with Carl, Pete states, "Do I miss him? He used to get me good crack. That'll do, 'innit? He's still really pisted off. But I know he's not like that. He's someone who likes drinking. That's the hypocrisy of it."

On his views about his old band and drugs he says, "I paid the price. I got kicked out of the band. And with nothing, no sweat from anyone, we got it together with Babyshambles. We really got it. All he's got is the fact that he was in the best band and now he's in the worst band. And he needs to sort that out."

Well...let round 1657 begin! FYI Pete...Dirty Pretty Things are pretty fucking awesome and at least were sober enough to tour and show up to their gigs.

The Verve Makes Sad Songs (Tell Us Something We Didn't Know)

According to British research, The Verve's "The Drugs Don't Work" is the saddest song to listen to. Surprised? I'm not. Topping the sad songs list is also Robbie Williams' "Angels", Sir Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" and Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U".

Dr. Harry Witchel from the University of Bristol Medical School monitored volunteers' heart rates to see which tracks made people feel happy, sad or exhilarated.

In the happy department, Lily Allen's "LDN" is #1 making it the happiest song of the bunch. It beat out Beyonce Knowles' Crazy In Love, Britney Spears' Hit Me Baby... One More Time and Kylie Minogue's Spinning Around.

Blur's anthem Song 2 exhilarates listeners, as well as The Rolling Stones' Start Me Up and U2's Beautiful Day.

Now we know how to get people in a certain mood...thanks Dr. Harry

Noel Gallagher Lets The Cat Out Of The Bag...

Oasis had their glory years in the 1990's (and they will always have their glory years to me) but this week Noel exposed a dark secret about the band that isn't all that shocking; the band was all fucked on crystal meth. On Noel's breif departure from the band he states, "The reason why I left is because crystal meth is like cheap speed, and I was into far more exotic drugs at that point. "I was quite upset my band members had become punks when I was busy reaching for the stars."

Oasis...always surprising the public. As long as they don't die let's keep it that way.

Kaiser Chiefs Help Break NME Into The US

In NME's attempt to take over the world they have set their sites on the US of A with an NME sponsored tour featuring the Kaiser Chiefs. Other UK acts will be on the tour as well and have yet to be announced.

"NME is the first place any new band wants to see their name in print...the influence it has on the British music scene is immense and it's time to spread that to the U.S.", says singer Ricky Wilson.

The tour begins in NYC at the Roseland Ballroom and hits all the major US pit stops. Expect a massive presence at SXSW this year as well. Thank god...hopefully NME can spark some life into the lifeless music scene thats been consumed by people saying Ra Ra Riot is actually a good band. Ra Ra Refund!

Begin The Lily Allen Blacklash

British pop stars Girls Aloud want in on the slagging game and have gone on to their next victim...Lily Allen. Kimberley from Girls Aloud told MTV UK: "Her first single was really good. It seemed she was really different - a female, but I don't know anymore. I don't really like her as a person." Then Nicola let rip saying: "Lily was saying she liked me because I was moody and not that pretty...I really appreciated her when she first came out - she was a breath of fresh air...But now I think f*** her."

Its feud time! Shame that people can actually ADMIT to loving Lily and most people who liked credible music have trouble admitting they even find one Girls Aloud song catchy and dig it (shit...I'm caught...).

Karen O Has A Good Sense Of Humour

"Shit happens..." says Karen O of the leaked demos. Disccusing the leak on her message board she said the following: "(I) can't say I don't feel a little grossed out by someone taking a liberty with music that was mine and Dave's. Shit happens nonetheless.

"All I can do at this point is offer up a recommendation... if you happen to get your mits on one of those old demos floating around MY personal favorites and the ONLY ONES I would have released for anyone to enjoy is 'Pumpkin' and 'Snakes and Worms'. The rest I probably would have pitched or buried for while longer. No use bitching about something that's out of my control.

Now thats sort of awesome...a good outlook on things and the proper position to take. Leaks suck but at the end of the day once someone has them there isn't much you can do.

Tahita Bulmer From New Young Pony Cub Is My New Hero

Playing their first ever gig in New York on Saturday, New Young Pony Club apparently tore down the house and rocked Brooklyn hard. Playing to guests like Nick Zinner and James Iha, the band played a nice 30 minute set for the Brooklyn hipsters at The White Room for the Modular Xmas Party

The setlist is as follows:
'Get Lucky'
'The Bomb'
'Hiding On The Stair Case'
'Ice Cream'

Now, why she's my hero you ask? Check out this quote from Tahita about the show: "It went relatively well considering I had a sore throat," she explained. "There were clearly plenty of people who were digging it -especially at the front - but there were also a lot of hipsters who might as well have been looking at pictures of elephant dung. It would have been nicer if some of those people had responded."

Fucking genius...

Thanks to for the info and the quote. I couldn't be there because I had a big Xmas party to go to...but from what I heard it was packed and awesome.

Get Ready For The Weirdness

The Stooges still contain 3 out of the 4 original members (of course Mr Iggy Pop and the Asheton brothers) and Mike Watt will be covering the bass duties.

This should (hopefully!) be insane...

Fingers crossed for a tour!

Eagles Of Death Metal vs Axl Rose

Axl Rose has once again proved he's out of his mind. First he get into a fight with Tommy Hilfiger and then he calls the Eagles of Death Metal "The Pigeons of Shit Metal" on stage after they played a set opening up for Guns N Roses in Cleveland. Jesse Hughes sets the record straight saying, ""Axl Rose is fucking out of his mind," raged Hughes. "He wasn't even there when we played. He got there about 30 minutes after we got done playing. He waltzed on to the stage and went nuts."

Surprise surprise...

And after Axl's apology Hughes still stood his ground stating, "When my manager told me that, I just said, 'You can tell that motherfucker to go and fuck himself because I will never go through that again'."

Kudos to the Eagles of Death Metal saying fuck off to Axl and not contunuing the tour even after he apologized.
