Filed under: Music Minute

paul-simon-tour.jpg

Hey, want to feel old? Twenty-five years ago, Paul Simon released his now trademark album, Graceland! Yeah, let that sink in.

Course, a lot of you were probably just born when then album came out, so you, it doesn't mean much! LOLz!

Anyway, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album, Paul is planning a tour for next year that is currently in the early stages of planning. We don't know where he is going to go and when, but we do know that he will also be releasing a new "Graceland" box set with Sony Legacy the will release in the late spring of next year. We imagine the tour wont' be too far behind that.

Watch Paul Simon Of Simon & Garfunkel Perform A Haunting Version Of Sound Of Silence At The 9/11 Memorial

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

We couldn't think of a more appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives so tragically ten years ago.

Please watch Paul Simon, of Simon & Garfunkel, perform a heartwrenching and somber acoustic performance of the classic Sound of Silence at Ground Zero today, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center (above).

Powerful. Moving. And undeniably beautiful.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost a loved one that day.

May they R.I.P. and always be remembered.

Ed Helms And Paul Simon Ready For SNL

Filed under: TV NewsJustin TimberlakeEtc.Tina FeyLady GaGa

Ed Helms and Paul Simon For SNL

Inneresting!

We're not really sure this is the best choice for the show right before the season finale!

Not that we have anything against Ed Helms and Paul Simon, we just think that it won't nearly have to final powerful draw to be wedged in between Tina Fey with Ellie Goulding and the powerhouse hosts Justin Timberlake with Lady GaGa!

But, Helms and Simon are set for May 14th regardless. We'll just have to see how well they'll do!

We guess it makes sense with the Hangover Part II happening right around then, but we'd prefer a choice not based on just because a movie is being released!

Ed, we hope you do well! We can't wait to see Hangover II!

How do U guys feel about this choice??

Want To Hear ALL About Russell Brand And Kate Moss In Bed?

russell brand tells all about one night stand with kate moss in his new book

Bet you didn't realize that Russell Brand slept his way to the top!

Fortunately for Russell, he only had to sleep with ONE person to get there - Kate Moss!

Here's what Brand had to say about it:

"I could never have anticipated the instant elevation that this liaison would afford me, it was like being awarded a celebrity Victoria Cross. The world 'approved' was stamped on my forehead and I was now to appear in The Sun newspaper as regularly as the horoscopes."

Brand claims he achieved fame when paparazzi noticed him with Moss. But, how did he get with Moss in the first place?

According to his upcoming book, Booky Wook 2, Moss liked his jokes, and one day a friend approached him and said "Kate would like to meet you," to which he replied "Kate who?"

More From Brand on Kate:

"Obviously you remember the prettiest girl in your school. Her sweeping majesty, her ethereal glow, how the playground floor did not dare besmirch her gentle feet with its lowly asphalt touch. Kate Moss is the prettiest girl in all our schools. Behold our queen, but don't look at her directly or all else you gaze upon till death brings down your lids will be as shadows compared to her beauty."

And more from Brand:

"My heart pounding, of course, but also my liver and lungs and feet. Paul Simon thinks my vital organs may be a lost African tribe and considers recording a follow-up to 'Graceland' in my colon.

We kiss, and yes, on one level I'm enjoying the kiss, but my mind is screaming, screeching, body-popping, lambada-ing. Playground fads are revisited: yo-yos, hula hoops, pogs. 'Kiss properly, stop thinking about pogs, you idiot.' "

"Ludicrously I say to her, 'Do you want to come back to mine . . . Kate Moss?' "

According to Brand, when he got her back to his place, seeing her there was "like looking into the garden and seeing Vegas Elvis mowing the lawn."

Want to hear more about Kate's Russell-rendez-vous? Us too!

"Her hair fans over the pillow like a peacock's tail. Kate Moss is indeed in the bed, and for a minute I feel like I've murdered her. 'Oh my God, what have I done?' I get up and back away like a butler on the first day with the Queen, not daring to turn from her for a moment."

The next day when Brand returned to his apartment, he saw that Kate had made the bed, and he decided he was in love.

Unfortunately, that's where the honeymoon ends. The next day, Russell and Kate were the talk of the tabloids, and shortly thereafter, Moss's friends claimed that Kate "accused him of making money off her name, ranting, raving, and call him a tw*t."

Here's what Brand says about the aftermath in his book:

"What no one realized, not Kate nor the red-top tabloid press, was that far from viewing her as a conquest, I was absolutely smitten. When I clumsily ballsed it up by flatly telling journalists . . . 'I was just larking around,' she wisely withdrew and I had enough sense to stop calling her."

Quite the story! Guess it was all for the best, because if he had kept his cool, Brand MIGHT have stayed with Kate Moss, and then he might not have ended up with Katy Perry.

So, Russell Brand slept with Kate Moss, got crazy famous, and is now getting married to someone he loves so much that he doesn't even want a pre-nup?

Seems like a happy ending to the Russell Brand story to us…at least for now!

Oprah Doesn't Mess Around With Her Season Premiere!

oprahap100509022586.jpg

One of the things we'll miss about The Oprah Winfrey Show are the moments when everyday people come to the studio just miserable and depleted, but then walk away with a buttload of awesome free shit that only Oprah could afford to bestow upon dozens upon dozens of strangers.

Today marks the beginning of the end of Oprah's iconic show and with no surprise to us, she decided to go out with the shrill screams of hundreds of housewives.

According to sources, Oprah surprised her guests, all 300 of them, with an all expenses paid trip to Australia!

As you can imagine, the women lost their shit!

She made the announcement shortly after she was joined on stage with her guests Don Johnson, Paul Simon and Joooohn Travoltaaaaa! (Did we mention? He's going to fly the plane!!!)

Ha! Amazing!
