My Chemical Romance (Photo: Mark Metcalfe)My Chemical Romance may no longer be feeling the hearts and flowers anymore--but, as the saying goes, the band will always live on in the hearts of their fans. True to that loyalty, we did some digging in the Yahoo! vaults and came up with some exclusive older footage of the late MCR to rave--or perhaps weep--over.Read More »from My Chemical Romance Is Over–But Their Past Lives On!

Jaime Pressly (Photo: Valerie Macon)It sure doesn't stink to be Jesse Heiman these days. The uber-nerd, who rose to fame as a result of a Super Bowl 2013 commercial featuring him making out with hot model Bar Refaeli, is now locking lips with yet another gorgeous gal.
This time, Heiman's laying a lingering one on My Name Is Earl actress Jaime Pressly--a longtime favorite on men's magazine "hot" lists--in smooth crooner Michael Bublé's new music video for his latest single, "A Beautiful Day."
The clip for the upbeat tune opens with Bublé innocently opening the front door…only to find his onscreen gal pal (Pressly) in a heated embrace with another guy (Heiman). And yes, this make-out session is equally as slobbery--and nauseating--as the one with Refaeli.Read More »from Guess Who The GoDaddy Geek Is Kissing Now?!

My Chemical Romance (Photo: Jeff Kravitz)It looks as if the chemistry in My Chemical Romance has fizzled out. The band, which has been a driving force in the alt-rock movement for a dozen years, has announced the members will be going their separate ways.
"Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing," the group expressed in a short statement on their official website. "We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends."Read More »from My Chemical Romance Call It Quits After A Dozen Years

Fergie (Photo: Vittorio Zunino Celotto)Not to worry, Black Eyed Peas fans--frontwoman Fergie is not going to be replaced after she has her baby this year. Her bandmate Will.i.am is making sure everyone knows this is a false rumor.
"The rumors on @fergie being replaced are so false @PerezHilton & @TMZNEWSS_ is the furthest from the truth #BEP4ever #fergieROCKS...#family" he tweeted on Thursday.Read More »from Will.i.am: Fergie Is NOT Leaving The Black Eyed Peas

It's been a busy week for Octomom Nadya Suleman. She's allegedly under investigation for welfare fraud, and just detailed her work on a porn film to Oprah Winfrey. So what's next? Appearing in a country music video, of course!
To be fair, this ain't your typical country-music clip. Suleman stars in the latest from celebrated parody artist Cledus T. Judd--who's spoofed tunes by country luminaries ranging from Shania Twain to Kenny Chesney.
His new video, "Honeymoon," spoofs Little Big Town's No. 1 hit "Pontoon"; and yep, it's just as it suggests. Even better, actually. Suleman is featured as Judd's redneck bride, complete with perhaps the tackiest wedding gown imaginable. If the exaggerated satin poufs on the shoulders weren't enough, Suleman sports a camo-print thermal underneath to make it extra fetching.
The pair reportedly jet off to Dollywood for their post-nuptial tour. The video will debut Monday on CMT.

Dropkick Murphys' Ken Casey (Photo: Marc Andrew Deley)Massachusetts punk band the Dropkick Murphys lived up to their name last week in New York City, when a fan in the audience started doing something…well, kind of offensive, to say the least.
The band was slamming through a cover of AC/DC's "TNT," with the audience invited to jump up with them and sing along, when bassist/vocalist Ken Casey suddenly stopped short. He strode over to the side of the stage and apparently began to beat the heck out of a guy in the crowd.Read More »from Neo-Nazi At Punk Show Gets Drop-Kicked By Dropkick Murphys

One Direction (Photo: Mike Marsland)Nice prank…or a bit on the mean side? The lads in One Direction were good and fooled recently when a pair of comedians pulled a whopper over on them--resulting in the panicked band racing to call an ambulance.
British comedy duo Ant and Dec, who were filming a segment for their variety show Saturday Night Takeaway, ran the prank by dressing up as a 1D superfan (complete with knit Harry Styles-style beanie and 1D bomber jacket), and a TV producer from New Zealand introducing him to the band.Read More »from One Direction Get Major Scare From ‘Superfan Collapse’ Prank

Shooter Jennings (Photo: Frederick M. Brown)Shooter Jennings may be known for his status spearheading all things outsider in the music world--the son of outlaw legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, he champions artists that don't fit in traditional molds, shuns the Nashville machine in favor of Los Angeles, and generally operates on his own wavelength without variation. It could be forgiven that one might assume he's somewhat prickly--or at least unpredictable--in person.
However, nothing could be further than the truth. In the flesh, he's actually an extraordinary low-key kind of guy. When Jennings arrived at Yahoo! Music for his Ram Country session, he brought nothing but his jeans-clad self and a guitar--no entourage, no special requests.Read More »from Shooter Jennings Talks Why ‘Outlaw’ Is ‘Worn Out’, New Album, New Film
