Within an hour of Glenn's remarks, while he was still on the air, a representative of the band emailed Glenn and demanded that he retract his praise of the song, complaining that he was misrepresenting the band's views. "They would like me to retract my endorsement," Glenn wryly told listeners. "My apologies to Muse for saying that I like them. I didn't mean to destroy all their credibility and all their coolness. It's an awful album and you should never go out and buy it."
Apparently Muse don't believe the old adage that any publicity is good publicity...Miley Cyrus, deleted her Twitter account (which had 1.1 million followers), causing thousands of distraught fans to trend "#mileycomeback" in vain. In one of her final posts, the tween tweeter wrote that her new boyfriend Liam Hemsworth (her co-star in her upcoming movie The Last Song) wanted her to delete her account "with good reason"...and apparently she took his reasoning seriously. Courtney Love--whose tweets were so over-the-top that they'd even inspired a fan-created Twitter alias called @cltranslated--also quit Twitter, just a few days after her daughter Frances Bean Cobain tweeted a scathing tirade against Lindsay Lohan's little sister, Ali Lohan. Frances Bean also deleted her account without explanation.
And thus, a gaping void was left in the Twitter world. But hey, at least tweeter extraordinaire John Mayer is still online.Oasis in a huff several weeks ago: Oasis have indeed broken up. "Oasis is no longer. I think we all know that. So that's done," he said. "It's a shame, but that's life. We had a good run at it. The thing about Oasis is...no one ended it for us. Which was kind of cool." Jay-Z's appearance at Britain's Glastonbury Festival last year.
Snoop Dogg recently told British music site NME.com that he would be interested in signing Noel Gallagher to Priority Records (of which Snoop is creative director), and then none other than Jay-Z told U.K. paper The Sun: "I hear Snoop Dogg might be teaming up with Noel. If that's the case then I would love to work with Liam. [Oasis's] music is tight and I think we could blend our styles well. When I teamed up with Linkin Park nobody expected that to work, but we made a massive success of it. The same could happen with Liam. When you have two artists like us in a room just throwing about ideas, you come up with something brilliant fairly easily. I don't know what he is up to now, but he can give me a call."
Jay-Z and a Gallagher brother, collaborating? The next thing we'll hear is that Muse and Glenn Beck are recording a love duet. But hey, what better revenge could Liam get on Noel than by becoming BFFs with Hova?Public Enemy are asking fans to raise $250,000 to help them record their new album (this is a new business model, with fans who invest $25 in the album receiving a share in the revenue as well as a numbered copy of it); the Beastie Boys' Adam "MCA" Yauch announced that he's "hopeful" he has beaten cancer; Aftermath Records labelmates Eminem and 50 Cent revealed that they will face off on a new song on Shady's upcoming Relapse 2 album; Method Man is facing four years in prison for tax evasion; and Beyonce defended Kanye West's recent controversial behavior at the VMAs, saying 'Ye was "standing up for art" when he protested Taylor Swift's video winning over her own "Single Ladies."
And, of course, we wish all of you a very good weekend. Until next Friday, goodnight and good music.
