Jewel ready to assault listeners again

After her last album was the first not to go platinum, Jewel returns to business as usually boring for her new platter, Goodbye Alice in Wonderland. Sez Jewel of her fans’ reaction to the 0304 album and its dancey single “Intuition,”

“Anyone that really listened heard a smart record with good storytelling,” she says. “I didn’t fluff out or compromise; if I was going, ‘Ooh baby baby’ or ‘Come on, uh-huh, uh-huh,’ we might all worry about me. But I was getting into electronic music and dance remixes. I can’t believe people didn’t get it.”

Actually, Jewel, if you did sing those kinds of things instead, I might buy one of your crummy little albums.

“The game gets tiring for me,” she says. “I am very committed to this record, but after that, I don’t want to stay as visible. I’d like to put out some smaller records, maybe a jazz standard or a country record. I’ve been competitive my whole life, and now I’d like to work out of my house more. I might even start looking into having a family in a couple years.”

Oh boy another jazz standard album by a boring poppie. I just want to punch her in the mouth so that twisted tooth of hers will finally fall out.


Fiddy lashes out at Oprah

Let’s all start lashing out at Oprah, shall we? Could be fun. And besides, it makes sense. So it goes as well with 50 Cent, who recenlt took a few verbal jabs at the boring talk show host in a recent interview.

“I think she caters to older white women.”

“Oprah’s audience is my audience’s parents,” the 29-year-old rapper said. “So, I could care less about Oprah or her show.”

Well, this is the first time I’ve ever agreed with Fiddy, but there’s always a first time. I reckon it’ll be that last, too.


Keef gets taken to the hospital

Keef Richards is in a New Zealand hospital after suffering a mild concussion. No, the concussion didn’t involve a syringe and whatever he shoots into these days. Apparently he fell out of a tree. Just like the monkey that was dead.

“A newspaper report Sunday said Richards was flown to Auckland’s Ascot Hospital on Thursday after the accident. Hospital duty manager Steve Kirby would not comment on whether Richards was a patient there, citing the hospital’s privacy policy.”

Get well soon, Keef. Something tells me your veins are having a good time at the doctor’s, though.


Seriously, Pete, what the f*ck…?

Pete Doherty – late of the Libertines, more recently of Babyshambles – has now firmly established his position as a complete and total fuck-up…so much so that even people in the US who don’t know a lick about his music will soon know him as “the guy who shot one of his fans up with heroin while she was unconscious.”

Are the pictures real? And if they’re not, why would you fake something like that…?

And we have a link to audio streams of the entire album.
