Four score and Seven years ago, a female-fronted rock band by the name of Garbage ruled the airwaves with their rocking jams and killer tunes. Seven years is a loooooong time to wait, but it sounds like it will have been worth it.
It has been confirmed that Shirley Manson and her boys are back and will release their fifth studio album in the spring 2012. Of the record, the band released this group statement:

We think other celebs should take note and follow singer Shirley Manson's lead!
For her 45th birthday, the Garbage frontwoman wants nothing more than to raise $4,500 for the children's charity the Pablove Foundation Inc.
According to her cause page:
"I chose PABLOVE FOUNDATION INC because it is very close to my heart. It was set up by two friends of mine who lost their beloved 6 year old son Pablo to a form of childhood cancer. Please think of giving a donation in memory of Pablo and in honour of children with cancer all over the world who need our help. The foundation puts particular emphasis on funding research but also on providing fun creative things for children to do whilst they are stuck in the hospital. Anyone who has gone through a hospital stay with their child will understand how crucial this kind of distraction is to a child's well being."
She's asking for a $45 donation, but will graciously accept any donation to help the cause. Recognizing that times are tough, Shirley is encouraging people to share the page with friends if they can not donate themselves.

Yes! YES! They're back!
We reported almost a year ago that Garbage had returned to the studio after a five-year hiatus to begin work on a new album and tour, and now, the band has joined Facebook, and even posted a short, yet very exciting video which pretty much confirms what for what we've been waiting for quite some time!
Check it out (above)!
HURRAY! You all look so good!
And we would NEVER want to get rid of you, gurl!
Now that you're back, we expect you to stick around! Now just release some new tunes!
It's been far too long!

We're conflicted here.
On the one hand, this report about a hotel completely constructed out of garbage inspires us to believe that there are those out there who truly care about our environment and want to take a powerful stance to stop pollution in the oceans.
On the other hand…EWWW! People sleeping on garbage! Gross, gross, gross!!!
Check out this report from Spain (above) about the world's trashiest hotel! LOLz!

Is that what she's doing with her time?! Trashing her old work?!
Sources are reporting that some early work by Amy Winehouse has been found in a trash can in London.
Several notebooks Amy kept in her youth were found sitting in the garbage and they included lyrics she wrote before she made it to the big time. The Sun published a few excerpts from the book, including this lyric: "I'm digging myself into a hole/These days I'll just work when once I had so much soul".
Who would throw that away?
Better question: what kind of person is digging through Amy's trash?!
