Kid Rock And Alan Jackson Step In To Perform At SeaWorld's BBQ After EVERYONE Else Cancels Because Of Blackfish

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersKid RockAnimal RightsWhalesSea WorldAnimal Cruelty

Blackfish causes artists to ditch SeaWorld BBQ... then Kid Rock stepped up to fill in! Scab!

We were so proud when we heard that Heart, Willie Nelson, REO Speedwagon and other musicians had pulled out of performing at SeaWorld's Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival.

Things seemed pretty dire and we were hoping the whole event would be canceled.

Maybe then they'd start losing real money and eventually SeaWorld would shut down and all the whales would go free!!

However, money must talk because Kid Rock and Alan Jackson have stepped in to headline the event this weekend at SeaWorld Orlando.

We'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt but Blackfish is too popular for them to not have at least heard about the cruelty.

They gotta know the reason why all the other acts dropped out.

We guess some people only care about money??? We're very disappointed.

The Stafford Brothers are an Australian DJ group, signed to Cash Money Records.

They're also in a fair amount of trouble with the owners of a house they rented in Studio City… that they totally trashed!!

The owners of the property are actually suing them now!

They claim the group threw tons of parties and one especially devastating one for their music video for Hello, a song that features Lil Wayne!

The Stafford Brothers violated their lease by illegally serving alcohol, pouring liquid nitrogen in the house, installing a skate ramp, and allowing a live kangaroo to

Morrissey's New Controversial Statement: "Eating Meat = Pedophilia"

| Filed under: Music MinuteBookzFoodVeganVegetarianAnimal Rights

Morrissey said eating meat is the same as being a pedophile.

Morrissey is a singer, musician, and all-around depressed meanie, and it seems like he's always angry and judging everyone.

Srsly, he's becoming more known for his controversial animal rights statements than his music!

Even though we sometimes agree with his stance on certain issues, the way he goes about talking about them is a little bit… insane. (Let's not forget the "turkey torturer" debacle.)

While doing an online Q&A session to promote his memoir, Autobiography, he said:

| Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonceAnimal RightsSea WorldAnimal Cruelty

Martina McBride cancels SeaWorld performance due to orca cruelty!

Whoa! This is becoming HUGE!!!

You know how famous bands and musicians come together during times of need and will put on a show to benefit those who need it?

Well it looks like the opposite is also true!

Ever since the documentary Blackfish came out, word has been spreading about SeaWorld's cruelty towards it's orca whales.

The park was due to have a huge Bands, Brews & BBQ festival with ten seriously famous musical acts.

But, ever since Willie Nelson dropped out, a chain reaction began and artists started dropping like secret Beyonce albums.

Heart and Trisha Yearwood followed suit, dropping out of the show as the dominoes kept falling.

Now, REO Speedwagon and Martina McBride have gracefully opted out, making them the
