This Week: Farewell Oderus Urungus, Go Away Nick Cannon, Broken Bells Save the Earth
"When we are a country and we are a species that has had a martian rover traveling up and down the crevices of this planet looking for water and ice... but we still got legislation trying to tell women what to do with their bodies? Hillary's gonna win. Everybody laughed at me when I said Obama was going to win, but I knew what he represented."
Pharrell really does understand the ladies (GQ Magazine).
Yes: Joe Elliot from Def Leppard just compared Leonard Cohen to Ratt (Billboard)
"I hate talking about heroin because of my family. But, for me, it was incredibly creative. It freed me up... I somehow managed to break out of something with my voice. I can only say heroin was incredibly productive for me."
But you're not supposed to tell people that, Damon Albarn! (Q Magazine).
"It's official... I'm White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft 'Bro I got drafted!!'"
White face was way funnier when Dave Chappelle did it, Nick Cannon (Instagram).
"The first time I made love to my wife was after we got married. I'm a pleaser. I went in like, 'Yo, she's gonna love this'... I f**ked the sh*t out of her."
The second reason Nick Cannon should've stayed quiet this week. (Big Boy TV).
"Broken Bells are set to donate $1 for every ticket sold on their upcoming tour of the West Coast of the US to the B612 Foundation's Sentinel mission. The mission is backing a telescope which will search for asteroids that are flying dangerously close to the earth."
Broken Bells are doing their part to save the world, then. (nme.com).
"We're all pretty boring unless we're playing and then we're not boring. We just like to play music. We don't read anything about ourselves. I don't own a computer. I'm not a big fan of technology. I'm not a big fan of flying."
At least Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless knows she's boring. (The Sun)
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate... We are, however... a family... We ask for our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
This will forever be the week that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin invented a (very pretentious) new phrase for breaking up (Goop).
"Gwyneth once famously urged a friend to keep her man happy by giving him plenty of oral sex -- but did the actress follow her own advice when it came to her husband of 10 years, Chris Martin? Could a lack of oral sex be the real reason why Gwyneth and the Coldplay frontman decided to split?"
Cue preposterous speculation over what caused the marriage breakdown. Classy, Hollywoodlife.com.
"It is with a saddened heart that I confirm my dear friend Dave Brockie, artist, musician, and lead singer of GWAR passed away at approximately 6:50 PM EST Sunday March 23, 2014. His body was found Sunday by his band mate at his home in Richmond, VA."
Oderus Urungus is dead; long live Oderus Urungus (Gwar manager Jack Flanagan).
