The Entire City Of Detroit Wants Nickelback To Be Disinvited To Their Thanksgiving Game!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!ZportzFootballNFL

detroit doesnt want you nickelback

AWK-WARD.

While we're sure they had the best of intentions, the NFL messed up when they invited Nickelback to perform at this year's Detroit Lions Thanksgiving game, because pretty much ALL OF DETROIT doesn't want them. Ouch!

Okay, so maybe not the entire city of Detroit, but over 32,000 Lions fans have signed an online petition trying to get Nickelback replaced! Ouch X2!

Here's how the petition reads:

This game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs. The Lions ought to think about their fans before choosing such an awful band to play at halftime.

It is true that many great people came from Detroit. Guess the NFL may want to rethink their decision…or hire LOTS AND LOTS of security during the halftime show!

Jackie Chan Raises $3.3 Million For Japan

Filed under: InspirationCharityJackie Chan

Jackie Chan raises $3.3 million for charity

Jackie Chan is probably the nicest action star ever.

The actor raised $3.3 million for Japan relief efforts this past Friday during his fund-raising concert, Artiste 311 Love Beyond Borders, in Hong Kong.

He put in calls across the Asian entertainment industry to wrangle in other charitable musicians and actors to host the show.

Even his good friend Lionel Richie appeared via a satellite feed in Australia to sing a rendition of his Say You, Say Me.

Jackie put together the show in just 11 days and says the most difficult part wasn't getting people to come, but having too many performers show up! He explained in a recent interview:

“The production team consists of fewer than 40 people, but 300 performers showed up. Almost everyone from Japan that we asked agreed to come over. But then we had to ask ourselves, what role could they play? What should they perform? Because, you know, every guest means a plane ticket, a hotel room, each for the guest and their assistants.”

The actor wasn't afraid to dig into his own pocket for the event and paid $643,000 to fly in and house all of the performers. "The worst thing would be to ask others to give but not give yourself,” he said.

The 56-year-old international star is completely aware of how much money he makes and because of that, he's not worried about giving so much of it out, explaining:

“My goal is to have a $0 in my bank account the day I die. I get very happy when I think about that, no more worries. I buy the things I like, I give money to charity, and then I try to make more money. I’ll be frank with you: It’s not difficult for me to make money. If it’s easy, why shouldn’t I give it away?”

Right on, Jackie! You're an inspiration and we wish there were more celebrities out there with your kind heart!

Simon Lays Into Elton Over X Factor Digs!

simon-cowell-vs-elton-john

Uh-oh! Shiz's getting real!

Elton John is no stranger to speaking his mind, and has repeatedly sounded off about his distaste for reality shows like The X Factor and its creator, Simon Cowell, but now, it looks as though the icon is getting a taste of his own medicine!

Cowell has responded to his criticism, and it ain't pretty! He says:

"Well, look. This is somebody who charges what — a million dollars a private gig? Two million dollars, you know? I don't know whether he's concerned about himself…but…they always bleat on that we're not giving other people a chance. And I always want to say to them, 'I tell you what, you just made a million dollars off — off your last private gig. Go and give it to a bunch of young musicians you care about, put them in the studio. Go and nurture them. Go and spend some time looking after them.' Then I'll buy your argument. They — they're only worried about themselves."

Damn! We hate to admit it, but…touché!

Let's hope that this doesn't cause another retaliation for Elton! This disagreement doesn't need to get any uglier!

What do U think?? Team Simon or Team Elton??

Holograph Sells Out Concert In Japan!

Check out the video (above) to see why actual performing musicians may become an endangered species…at least in Japan!

The crowd went wiiiiild for holograph Hatsune Miku as she performed her hit song World Is Mine at her sold out concert!

We still like our performers live, but admittedly we were kind of mesmerized by this.

What do U think? Team Holographs or Team Live Performers?
