The Oh No, Please God, Don’t Let This Result In A Covers Album news of the day is:
Courtney Love is looking to sell a 25% stake in Nirvana’s back catalogue. And right now, the front-runner to buy it is… Bono.
So what does this mean for Nirvana fans, music fans, and everybody else who’s terrified by thought of U2 covering "I Hate Myself And I Want To Die" on their next album? Probably nothing. Best case scenario, Bono and his Elevation Partners equity company (an equity company! Bono is so rock and roll!) get a little money every time "Come As You Are" is played on the radio. Worst case scenario? He loses the sunglasses, hires Dave Grohl, starts wearing sundresses and marries Courtney Love. Actually, now that I think about it, I think that’s the best case scenario. Oh well, whatever, Nevermind.

It’s being reported that the Scientologists and the Kabbalah(ists?) are eager to win the souls of Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham and her husband, David. Tom Cruise himself has "come knocking on the door" and Madonna has done some recruiting for her side. Posh has been spotted reading Dianetics, but she has also been photographed wearing the Kabbalah Center’s "trademark red-string bracelet." I’m actually rooting for EST on this one.
Shea had what can only be described as the Best Night Ever. Thanks, TV!
In response to the New York Times’ proclamation that the beard is back and Michael Douglas’s flattering new hairy look, we held a contest to see what other celebrities could benefit from a flowy white beard like Michael Douglas. And with out further ado, the winner:
Congratulations Megan! The Hiltons look hot with Michael Douglas beards. By the way I read Beard Magazine, but only for the articles.
Um…you can hire Corky from Life Goes On and his band to perform for you. No joke here, just thought you might like to know that.
We all know that it’s hard out here for a pimp. But where does a pimp turn to make things a little bit easier? Paris Hilton, of course!
From Yahoo News:
"Oscar-winning rappers Three 6 Mafia say they are producing and recording tracks with Paris Hilton."
"Producing and recording with" is apparently some kind of new crunk slang for "boning at an afterparty".
