Rush Flies Their Clockwork Angels On Tour

Filed under: Music MinuteEtc.

rush-2012-tour-clockwork-angels-1.jpg

One of the MOST influential trippy-rock bands of the Twentieth Century will accompany the release of Clockwork Angels - their first studio album in five years - with a North American Fall/Winter Tour!

Rush is known for philosophical lyrics and their penchant for all things science fiction and fantasy, AND they were one of the first bands to heavily use synthesizers in their sound.

Many bands venerate the canadian trio, including Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, and Primus, and we have always LOVED ourselves a rush of Rush!!

Their 2012 tour blasts off on Sept 7th in Manchester, N.H. and will conclude in Houston.

What a rare performance to see!

For a full listing of tour dates, head down south …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Which Gleek Spent The Night With A Werewolf Last Night???

How you doin' Michael Trevino?!

Last night, tons of celebs were packed into the Wiltern to see the Smashing Pumpkins perform, but two tween favorites were spotted coming - and going! - together, further specualtion that they might be an item.

Vampire Diaries hunk Michael and Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz were spotted leaving the venue together, with Michael's arm draped around Jenna for protection (and lurve!!!) as they scurried off to their car.

They are a cute couple! We approve! AH-Ooooo!

Jim Carrey Does Karaoke…And He's Not Bad!

Filed under: Music MinuteJim Carrey

Jim Carrey is sooo random! You never know when and where he'll show up!

He surprised a karaoke crowd in NYC over the weekend, getting up on stage at Arlene's Grocery where he performed not one, not two, but THREE songs for a bunch of rowdy fans.

Jim did a pretty awesome rendition of Radiohead's Creep - watch (above). We're impressed!!!

Billy Corgan Doesn't Seem To Like Transgenders

Filed under: Tacky & TrueCourtney Love

Billy Corgan Angry Transgender

Such a shame, too!

Musically speaking, the Smashing Pumpkins singer is a genius. We love Ava Adore, Disarm, Tonight Tonight, Eye, etc..

Compassionately speaking, we've lost hope with this one.

Back in the 90s, Billy Corgan stormed out of a concert 30 minutes into it after smashing his guitar on the stage.

And of course the whole rumor of infatuation with Courtney Love thing never made sense, but what we're about to tell you is what REALLY disappoints us with Billy.

After transgendered Devi Ever complained about Billy failing to pay her for the custom bass peddle she crafted, Billy took to Facebook with a marathon of hate:

you ugly piece of sh*t…if i ever run into you, anywhere, at anytime, for as long as i live, i will knock your fucking lights out. don’t ever come near me, and if i hear even one more peep out of you in public about me, or the band, or the members of the band, i am gonna sue you for so much you’ll never be able to afford so much as to even make a f*cking guitar cable.

He also tweeted about the incident (calling her a he/she, which is considered transbashing), but then deleted them later.

Ever then responded to his rant with some heavy words of her own:

you f*cked up, you know it, so eat sh*t, shut the f*ck up and accept you’ve attacked someone who tried to HELP YOU. but addicts and self-destructive people like you who HATE THEMSELVES must turn their hate out. if this is what you have to do to not kill your unhappy self, well then i’d say it was a wise decision. beyond that, you are f*cking lame, dumb, and so so ugly.

ME-OWW!

Ever later lamented her mirroring retaliation by YouTubing:

instead of being a whiny bitch on [the Smashing Pumpkins message boards] I should have gone for a hike, cooled off, then spoken with Billy privately about my disappointments with his reactions / non-reaction to my pedals over the years, but I still don’t think that excuses Billy for going as far as he did in retaliation, and I’d still greatly appreciate if Billy apologized via Twitter, and perhaps donate to a trans-rights organization

Way to be the bigger person, girl!

But back to Billy, dayum son! Why are you so pissed?

Hmm, maybe it has to do with his 2005 incident. He wrote a LiveJournal entry about almost screwing a transgendered until he found out what was under the panties! When word got around, he said he physically threatened to break both her arms and legs if she said another word of it.

Ummm, yeah…. that could be the reason. But it's definitely not an excuse!

New Smashing Pumpkins Bassist Was Girl On The Cover Of Siamese Dream!

Filed under: Music MinuteTwitter

smashing-pumpkins-bassist-siamese-dream-cover.jpg

Whoa! What a crazy coincidence!

Billy Corgan has revealed that the new Smashing Pumpkins bassist, Nicole Fiorentino, was one of the girls on the cover of their 1993 album Siamese Dream!

In fact, Billy himself didn't even know until after she had joined the group.

He tweeted:

Just found out the weirdest news: our bass player Nicole (@xocoleyf) just admitted she is one of the girls on the cover of Siamese Dream

She said she didn't want us to know because she thought maybe we wouldn't let her be in the band

Ha! That's crazy!

Billy didn't say which one she was, but we're thinking the girl on the right.

What do U think??

Billy Corgan Continues To Slam Courtney Love!

wenn1037196lojbve__opt1__op.jpg

Oh shit! This feud is getting just straight-up nasty!

Billy Corgan is apparently NOT pleased with all of Courtney Love's delusional crazy as of late, and is lashing back at all of the shiz she's spewed about him and his contributions to her band Hole's latest album, Nobody's Daughter!

He says:

"She's a great artist, I've always believed in her ability and certainly have looked the other way with her issues. Out of the blue she's talking shit. She's got that crazy thing where she creates fantasies if people don't do what she wants them to do, like saying I snuck on to her record. The irony to tell the world totally untrue things about me, and then to go on stage, act like a prima donna and play songs I wrote. I just think don't play my songs if my contribution is so worthless. She's rendered herself irrelevant. She's always going to be a great artist but she's betrayed the important things that made her great so all that's left is her fire. Courtney I don't mind kicking dirt on because she's just an idiot and she continues to slag me off. I'm enough of a gentleman not to talk about the things I've seen. She's literally making stuff up. Believe me, if I told people what I'd really seen, well, if she thinks she's got problems now…"

SCANDALOUS!

Ah! We can only IMAGINE what kind of mess he's seen!

Tell us, bb!

We're DYING to know!

What do U think?? Team Billy or Team Courtney??
