Lachey’s Ballad Reveals Insight Into Split



Nick Lachey’s heartfelt ballad ‘What’s Left of Me’, recently released on AOL, provides insight into some the pain the singer felt after his split with wife Jessica Simpson.

Inspired to write, while wearing an unbuttoned white linen shirt and sitting in front of a fan, Nick sings about watching  "life pass me by in the rear-view mirror." 

Sources believe the rear-view mirror in question, once owned by rocker Meatloaf, was at the heart of the split. "It only reflects memories, not cars. Jessica didn’t think it was safe for him to drive, but Nick loved looking into it for inspiration" says a close friend. 

Now that Lachey has put his pain to words, he’s next plans to put it to video.

CORN FLAKES: Your essential inessentials



  • Christian groups are fuming that Britney Spears will be appearing on Will and Grace. On the flipside, they’re very proud of her marriage to stripper loving babydaddy Kevin Federline and her series of religious hymnals like I’m a Slave 4 U and Breathe on Me.

Sambora and Locklear to Divorce



Actress Heather Locklear filed for divorce from husband of 11 years, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. While Sambora was able to vocally support bandmate John Bon Jovi on such rebel tunes like ‘Have a Nice Day,’  he reportedly  couldn’t support his wife with the same conviction.

Sources speculate, that while Sambora remained humble during his stint in Bon Jovi, the success of his 2004 side project Shark Frenzy changed everything.

Says a source close to the couple, "After Shark Frezy Volume 1 came out, Richie got a really big head. By Shark Frenzy Volume 2, their marraige was over."

This is a Pac-Man tattoo on someone’s posterior. I have to confess I spent a lot of time on my posterior playing Pac-Man, but I never thought to do this. Go to BME to see the whole thing.
