Artists Assist Victims of the Station Fire

stationconcert.jpg

One tragic event, innumerable tragic offshoots. When Rhode Island’s Station nightclub burned to the ground on February 20, 2003, 100 rock fans died and 200 were injured – many of them dreadfully so. It’s been five years since the infamous blaze took place, and lots of lives still need help being rebuilt. Though some compensations have been issued, the whopping medical bills and daunting personal struggles are crippling for many of those who went out to see Great White perform in the tiny club on that frigid night. Those facts are the reason that an array of artists from both the rock and country camps have chosen to participate in “Phoenix Rising! Musicians United To Benefit the Victims of the Station Nightclub Fire.” VH1 is making a concert special from the evening’s performances.

On February 25, in Providence, Rhode Island, John Rich of Big & Rich, and Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, host a multi-artist concert bash to raise money for the Station Family Fund which was founded by survivors to provide treatment and rehabilitation relief. Gretchen Wilson, Dierks Bentley, Alabama’s Randy Owen, Kellie Pickler will represent the country side of the fence. Staind‘s Aaron Lewis, Tesla, Winger, Boston’s Tom Scholz and Gary Pihl, Kevin Max, Carmine Appice’s SLAM, and Stryper will join Snider and the Twisted Sister crew. The goal is to honor the anniversary of those lost, and make life a bit easier for those still recovering. Tickets are available through Ticket Master.

On Sunday, March 23, VH1 Classic and VH1 will air Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later, a one-hour special of show highlights.

X-Tina Dishes on her Issues Down There

mamachristina.jpgUgh. Dump this quote in the Too Much Info zone and leave it there, please. New mom Christina Aguilera posed for some pics with baby Max and her hubby Jordan for Hello magazine and then talked wayyyyy too much about her decision to have a C-section. Stomach this:

I didn’t want any surprises. Honestly, I didn’t want any [vaginal] tearing. I had heard horror stories of women going in and having to have an emergency C-section [anyway]. The hardest part was deciding on his birthday. I wanted to leave it up to fate, but at the same time I was ready to be done early!”

Blergh. Christina also revealed that Jordan taped the entire thing, and that she cried when she first heard Max cry after giving birth. They were probably just tears of joy that came on after she realized that her vag was rip-free. Max is gonna LOVE it when kids at school dig up this interview and post it all over whatever social network they’re using in the future. Nice one, Mom.

Look Out – Lusty Linds Is On the Prowl!

They say that addicts often replace one vice with another, and it appears Lindsay Lohan has dumped her drug lust for men. The “actress” is back on the club scene, and she was spotted on Tuesday night attempting to get someone – anyone – to pay attention to her. The starlet first attempted to get Entourage star Adrian Grenier to dance with her, but her moves were negged with his date showed up. She then made a beeline for notorious man-whore Leonardo DiCaprio, who was hanging with Grenier’s co-star Kevin Connelly. “She was very flirty with Leo,? said a fellow club-goer. ?But he wasn?t saying much to her.?

The guys bolted from the club and Lindsay was left alone with just her posse of girlfriends to grind with. But never fear, our heroine was seen drowning her woes in vodka and champagne. Maybe booze makes a better boyfriend? [NYDN]

Beyonc?’s Beef with Aretha Gets Nasty

Uh oh, Aretha Franklin is p*ssed off at the Grammys and Beyonc?, and now B’s dad is getting into the mix and firing back at Re! Seriously, these divas love to duel, no matter their age. Here’s the deal: after Beyonc? introduced Tina Turner as “the queen” during the awards show, Aretha – known as the Queen of Soul – got her granny panties all up in a twist. “I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyonc?,” she said. “However I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy.”

Um, okay. We have a feeling – if we may say so Ms. Franklin – that no one was trying to diss you, they were just trying to give Tina some much-deserved praise. Beyonc?’s dad agrees with us, and he weighed in yesterday. “Something this ridiculous ? it’s childish, it’s unprofessional. And it’s a sad day when egos get bruised because somebody used the word king, queen, prince or princess.”

So much for R-E-S-P-EC-T! Guess you gotta give it to get it, these days. Whose side are you on – your girl B’s or your Queen’s?

A Baby Sings The Beatles

It’s Friday, which means it’s the perfect day to enjoy this video of a tiny baby holding a guitar and busting out The Beatles song “Hey Jude.” We have no idea how the kid, named Hero, has such a good grasp on the lyrics at such a young age, but it’s a pretty solid rendition coming from someone still in diapers. Most importantly, it’s straight up adorable. Enjoy.

Heidi Cried Over Crappy Video

heidicries.jpgPoor little Heidi from The Hills lost it when she discovered people on the internet were saying mean things about her budget music video for her song “Higher!” Has she just now discovered what the world wide web is all about? The wannabee singer claimed that she “started sobbing uncontrollably,” after discovering the disses, and cried herself to sleep. There is a very simple solution to all of this – don’t put garbage on the web. Stop posing for staged pictures on the beach in nothing but a string bikini. Don’t get “engaged” to your devil boyfriend on a reality TV show. Don’t make a PG-rated sex tape and stick it up on the internet. Easy!
Heidi claims the video was just a spur of the moment thing. “We did it in one take, maybe two, and it took us 20 minutes to film and cost us zero dollars,” she said. That right there is a sign to never show it to anyone, ever. Hopefully the plastic princess has learned her lesson and will find a way to make it big without big mistakes. After all, she’s “just a 21-year-old from a small town in Colorado trying to follow her dreams.”? [Us]

Brit’s Sis Already a Bad Girl

jamielynn.jpgNow that Britney’s baby sister Jamie-Lynn is knocked up, sources are coming out and flinging some serious mud in the teen’s direction. We’ve watched enough Gossip Girl to know how vicious kids can be, but this stuff is downright dirty, which makes it that much more interesting. If these sources are telling the truth, Jamie-Lynn is already following in her sister’s dangerous footsteps. She’s got the partying and the promiscuity down, now all she needs is a couple of vag-flashes! Soon enough.

Accusation #1: Jamie-Lynn gets around
A source accuses J-L of getting busy with a few boys (in addition to her baby-daddy Casey Aldridge), saying, ?I know for a fact that Casey was not the first guy she slept with ? or the last. There were at least two others. I know that 110 percent.?

Accusation #2: She’s using her pregnancy as birth control
A different source allegedly spotted Jamie-Lynn trying to get with a guy (not her boyfriend Casey) with this pick-up line: “It’s cool; I’m pregnant. I can’t get pregnant again!?

Accusation #3: She took to the bottle to forget Britney
Even though she’s only 16, J-L is supposedly way beyond experimenting with booze. She’s drinking to forget about her family drama! ?Some people drink to have a good time,? revealed another underage spy. ?But she drank to get wrecked. She drank to get messed up and forget about her mother, her sister and all of that.? [MSNBC]
