Muse WILL Survive At Olympic Closing Ceremony!

Wailing wombats!

British etherial rockers Muse have confirmed they will be shaking it to the right with other iconic UK musicians like the Spice Girls at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony!

Obviously, the band SHOULD perform seeing as their song Survival is the official 2012 Olympic tune…

But who else will help musically celebrate the athletic triumphs of the past two weeks?!

Oh dear! Will a guitar signed by The Rolling Stones cause a rift between Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz!??

Naah, not even in the slightest!

But the romantic duo DID get in a bidding war over the musical memorabilia at the annual Bronx Charter School for the Arts Auction!

Regardless of the charitable competition, the two were apparently super-gushy throughout the evening, as one onlooker recalled:

Roger Daltrey Slams Simon Cowell!

Meow!

The Who's Roger Daltrey recently spoke out against the quality of music that now becomes mainstream, and he singled out Simon Cowell as partly to blame!

He explains:

"We really need to break away from The X Factor and American Idol - that Simon Cowell thing. I really think the music industry will beat this slump and come back stronger. Groups like The Who, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles wouldn't have made it past the audition stage, let alone be shown on TV. That's the joke of it. The music they make on the shows is absolute tripe. He's made a good industry out of it, but it's belittled the power of music. He wouldn't know what the "X Factor" was if it bit him on the bullocks. There's people who like caviar and people who like fish and chips - but most people like fish and chips."

We think that's a pretty unfair generalization, considering how many legitimately talented singers have emerged from those types of competition! And many of them would have not had the means to succeed in the industry without Simon and his shows!

But every one has a right to their own opinion!

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

Keith Richards Says He Didn't Attack Swedish Journalist

Filed under: Music MinuteKeith Richards

keith richards denies attacking journalist

Keith Richards is denying claims that he attacked Swedish journalist Markus Larsson while on a promotional tour for his new autobiography.

The journalist had given The Rolling Stones a scathing concert review back in 2007, and had described them as "amateurs," which Keith had demanded a public apology for at the time.

Would meeting this man again really incite so much anger in Keith that he'd hit him?

Here's what a spokesman for Richards had to say about the situation:

"At the conclusion of the 20min interview, Keith Richards jokingly tapped the journalist on the head after his questions got a bit silly."

TAPPED? There's a big difference between tapping and attacking, Keith.

Either way, it's probably best to keep your hands to yourself during interviews. Something to keep in mind, bb!

Do U think Keith attacked the journalist? Or was it just a "tap?"

Lady GaGa Gives Newlywed Couple The Ultimate Gift!

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteLove LineLady GaGa

gaga gives the gift of song to newlyweds

Newlywed couple Ewan and Julie Searle got the best gift that anybody can get - the gift of GaGa.

GaGa approached the couple at the Raven Pub in Chiswick, West London, and asked them if they were celebrating, to which Julie responded "Yes, we got married."

In response to that, GaGa said "That calls for a song," and she asked if anyone could play guitar.

A French guy named Sam got a guitar, and they played The Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter together.

Unfortunately, GaGa's entourage stopped anyone from recording it, so we won't get to hear GaGa's impromptu performance of the classic Stones song…unless someone at the pub was REALLY stealthy.

Congrats to Ewan and Julie! And congrats to GaGa for once again reminding us why she is SO awesome!

If U had just gotten married, what song would U like to hear GaGa perform as a wedding gift?
