Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

Bad business you've gotten yourself into, dude!

Rick Springfield was formally charged with two counts of DUI this morning stemming from his arrest in Malibu last May. Because they are just misdemeanor charges, Rick faces a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. If they were felony charges, FORGET ABOUT IT!

Rick also got off doubly easy as the police department decided not to press charges for Rick's outlandish remarks to the arresting officers. As we recall, he muttered something about have them "f*cking killed." However, an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. spokesperson explained officials did not take the threat seriously, saying:

"It is rare when a drunk doesn’t say something outlandish to police when they’re arrested."

Truth!

Well, you brought this on to yourself Rick. Hopefully, you've learned your lesson!

Not Cool, Rick Springfield! Jessie's Girl Singer Gets a DUI

Filed under: Music MinuteBusted!

rick springfield gets a dui

During season three of Showtime's Californication, Rick Springfield was portrayed in a less-than-flattering light. Looks like he's living up to that on-screen persona…

80's rock star/Jessie's Girl singer Rick Springfield was arrested on Sunday night for a DUI in Los Angeles.

Police sources say he was pulled over for a traffic violation, "performed poorly" on sobriety tests, and was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

His BAC level was .10, which is above the California legal limit of .08.

Drinking and driving is NOT COOL, Rick Springfield! Hopefully you've learned your lesson.

rick springfield had surgery at 24

So sad!

Australian pop singer Rick Springfield revealed that he had plastic surgery at the tender age of 24 because he feared he was losing his youthful looks.

Rick said:

"He did my eyes, underneath my eyes… I'd been forced into this teen magazine thing and all the guys there were, like, 16, 17… and my depression's talking to me, saying, 'You don't look as young as these guys.'

I was desperate and I went to Australia and… I went to this doctor with my clear, unblemished 24-year-old face and I said, 'Can you make me look younger?' And he goes, 'I think I can help you!'

I actually thought it was worse after he was done… It was painful mentally; I woke up from the anaesthetic and I walked, struggled to the bathroom and looked in on it… They didn't tell me anything about what to expect (and) I looked like I'd gone six rounds with (Mike) Tyson… I was freaked out."

Ugh. Terrible.

Rick Springfield, made famous by his super-hit “Jessie’s Girl,” reveals some of his dark past.

Rick has written a tell-all memoir called Late Last Night, in which he talks about his struggle with depression.

It turns out that it was so bad for him that he tried to commit suicide when he was 17. He explains that after he didn’t go through with it, he realized that he wanted to make music.

He hopes to reach out to teens that are contemplating ending their life, especially because of the recent suicides.

He wants to let them know that there are people who understand what they are going through. He says, "your life will change. Nothing remains the same. I would have missed out on a lot of amazing stuff in my life."

Rick explaind that for the longest time he thought he was just a moody musician, however after gaining all his success and fame, and still feeling down, he realized that it was more than just angst.

In his book he also addresses his now healthy relationship with his wife, and is grateful for her.

Rick makes sure to say that despite his past of highs and lows, he doesn't want to have regrets.

"I'm thankful for serendipitous moments in my life, where things could've gone the other way. Over all life is what it is and regretting is a pointless thing."

We support your message Rick! Everyone's life is important and you can work through hard times!
