Donna Summer, Public Enemy, & Rush Are Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees!

rock roll hall of fame 2013 heart donna summer public enemy rush randy newman

Ah-Mazing!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced it's 2013 class of inductees, and we're pleased as punch by the bands and artists on the list!

Our fave ones to make the cut include Heart, Rush, Public Enemy, and — obvi — Donna Summer!

Heart wrote one of the best chick-rock songs ever with Crazy on You!

Public Enemy's Flavor Flav and Chuck D fought the powers that be for decades!

After being consistently overlooked, Canadian prog-rockers and Ayn Rand enthusiasts Rush finally get the recognition they deserve!

And, of course, the late/great Donna Summer touched all of us so profoundly that we would never ever argue against her inclusion!

Even I Love L.A. singer Randy Newman is joining in on the fun!

We expect much of the talented class to perform at the Nokia Center induction ceremony in April!

Watch Adam Lambert's Glass-Shattering VH1 Divas Promos HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteVH1Adam Lambert

We may have been MORE than a little bewildered with the line-up this year for VH1's Divas Live concert, which will feature the likes of Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, and Jordin Sparks paying tribute to the dearly departed Donna Summer and Whitney Houston, but that's apparently because the network has apparently decided only one TRUE diva has to take the stage this year!

And that would be the show's host, Adam Lambert!

Ch-ch-check out the American Idol alum showing off what his pipes can do in a brand new promo for the event (above)…as well as just a true diva needs to hit those high notes in two more…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

VH1 Divas Line-Up Special Honoring Whitney Houston & Donna Summer Has Been Announced… And It Makes NO Sense!

vh1-divas-2012-whitney-houston-tribute-line-up-miley-cyrus-demi-lovato-ciara-kelly-rowland-jordin-sparks

All right, what?!

We were thrilled to find out back in May that this year's upcoming VH1 Divas special would pay tribute to the life and music of dearly departed Whitney Houston, and couldn't wait to learn the line-up of talent to be featured for such an occasion!

However, we're pretty confused to report that in spite of the concert's namesake, this year's line-up warrants that it be re-named VH1 Former Disney Darlings!

That's right, the officially announced tribute to both Whitney and Donna Summer will include performances from Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, and Jordin Sparks!

…again with the HUH?

While we understand the latter's inclusion, given her involvement in Sparkle, and enjoy ALL the ladies as artists, we just find ourselves a little disappointed that producers couldn't land anyone with a little more, ahem, 'clout!'

In fact, we'd argue that the person who warrants

Andy Griffith, Michael Clarke Duncan, Phyllis Diller, Heavy-D, Andy Rooney, Steve Jobs, Patrice O'Neal, Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, Tony Scott, Mike Wallace, Ernest Borgnine, Dick Clark, and SO MANY more wil be dearly missed.

Rest in peace and THANK YOU ALL for the countless hours of entertainment you've provided for us over the years!

Awful! Globe Asks Which Celebrity Will Die Next!!!

globe wholl die next cover

What in the world!?!

We've seen some tacky magazine covers in our day, like this one of Newsweek's haunting Princess Diana, but Globe really knows how to take the cake!!

Capitalizing on Robin Gibb and Donna Summer's tragic deaths, the tabloid actually has the audacity to ask which celebrity will die next! And we know who they're betting on with those horrible photos of Liza Minnelli, Heather Locklear, Demi Moore, Nick Nolte, Mary Tyler Moore, George Jones, and OJ Simpson!!

Okay. We'll admit most tabloids are guilty of pushing the limits every now and then, but this is the lowest of the low!!! Calling it rude would just be the understatement of the year.

Stick to the apocalypse stories! Even those were less horrific!!
