April Fools! But not really. Tyga was probably feeling pretty good during the launch of his L.A. Gear sneaker line at Shiekh Shoes in Hollywood yesterday. But then a dude came in and gave him a subpoena in the middle of the party, and that kind of killed the mood! The best part? The process server bought two pairs of the new kicks, and waited two hours in line to have them autographed by Tyga himself. He even got a selfie with the rapper before handing over his papers. TMZ got the whole thing on video, so praise the prank gods!

It’s safe to say that Selena Gomez was not a fan of Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber. Which is kind of weird, because we assume she’d LOVE to watch her ex-boyfriend get ripped apart by celebrities and professional comedians on national television. But clearly she has higher principles than we do, because sources close Gomez claim that she found the program “disgusting and gross.”
We’ve already offered you the most rockin’ versions of our beloved National Anthem, and now Vince Neil has made his own very special addition to the list. The Motley Crue singer recently made an appearance at a Las Vegas Outlaws football game, where he was tapped to salute the stars and stripes. Considering he’s part owner of the team, it probably seemed like a good idea, right? Ehhh, maybe not.
The Game plays a dirty game of basketball—at least if this startling video from TMZ is any indication. The clip clearly shows the rapper taking a pretty powerful swing at an opposing player during a game of pickup in Los Angeles. But before you send The Game to anger management, he’s claiming it was all in self defense. Apparently the guy threatened to shoot him!
Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Alicia Keys took a break from running the world to pose for goofy photos at the star-studded TIDAL launch yesterday—thus forming the single coolest lunch table crew ever. Umm, hey Bey, Nicki and Alicia…can we sit with you?
Last night Rock Icons delivered an incredibly candid portrait of Nikki Sixx— but series director Sam Dunn is here to tell us that it wasn’t as carefree and easy as it looks. Dunn admits that Sixx was potentially the busiest guest in the shows history, juggling two bands, an international tour, a radio show, and movies.
This year on That Metal Show we’re doing things a little differently and thinking up exciting new ways to bring you the best coverage of all things heavy metal and hard rock. One of those things is That After Show, where we keep the cameras rolling after the regular broadcast is over and let the TMS boys and their guests talk about, well, whatever the f-ck they want to talk about. This week hear Mark Tremonti, Taylor Momsen and Twisted Sister sound off about their life in music.
The internet is a wonderful thing. It gives us access to our favorite music, the latest heavy metal news, and (of course) cat memes. Now a certain genius has found a way to combine all three—and it just might be the high-point of the interwebz. The amazing Kitten Covers tumblr features classic album covers reimagined with adorable kittens in place of the band. The badass-ness and cuteness play off each other like sweet and salty in a Reeses Cup, creating a phenomenon we can’t get enough of. From Metallica to Iron Maiden, and even deeper cuts like Minor Threat, these heroes did it up real big.
In the next installment of Rock Icons, Nikki Sixx reflects on Motley Crue‘s early days—including his fashion choices. In this exclusive sneak peak of Saturday’s episode, Sixx admits to Sam Dunn that his trademark wild hair actually served as a defense mechanism.
The schism between Axl Rose and Slash is one of the most notorious feuds in rock, in many ways marking the end of Guns N’ Roses’ glory years. Theories abound as to why the duo’s relationship soured beyond repair, but now we may have the spark. According to the band’s former manager Doug Goldstein, Michael Jackson is to blame for their beef and subsequent split.
