Ryan Adams responds to Courtney Love’s, “Hey, you ripped my daughter off!” charges

leave a comment »

It’s only fair I link to Stereogum’s coverage of the (as described well by one of the commenters, “It’s like watching the embodiment of syphilis and herpes fight.”) Ryan Adams v. Courtney Love discussion.

If you can’t be bothered (and I wouldn’t advise you be), you can just read what Adams has to say here:

to whom it may concern,

these days i find myself working harder than ever at being at my best, overcoming my fears and pushing myself creatively in my every endeavor. my only wish after the work is completed is that it may prove further evidence that no matter how isolated we all may all feel at times, as sad or misrepresented, we are not alone. there’s hope for and within each of us.

I’ve been dealing with the truth that i have at times been a bad example and/or glorified self destructive behavior. this was never intentional, but rather a consequence of leading a public life in plain sight and never expecting any sort of preferential treatment, isolation or protection.

Regardless of varied judgments as to my cultural relevance, i am thankfully alive and exercising my joy in creating. i only hope anyone who hears, reads or sees any of my contributions will permit the work to speak where i cannot.

i’ve realized and accepted that if people decide to dislike me, they’re going to find reasons to justify disliking me. there’s nothing i can do about that. that said, it still does pain me to be accused of fictional crimes against innocents or to be implicated in romantic gossip involving the possibly reality-challenged–however unreliable the source or outlandish the accusations. in the end, however, i know that i have never done or even meant anyone any harm.

anyway, the lives of public figures are so much more boring than anyone can imagine. honestly.

and also i like metal. A LOT. (even more than last time).

I’m not really sure I see an explicit denial of anything there. But oh well, at least there’s “hope for and within us.”

Denny’s is trying to be hip. Trying to appeal to the teenage diner-going audience. But which one does not belong? I’m going to hazard a guess and say, “What the fuck is Eagles of Death Metal doing there?” Maybe it’s just me, but that seems like an incredibly random choice to include in a breakfast dish, let alone a breakfast dish with the other bands described in the article. Does anyone even listen to Eagles of Death Metal? I do every once in awhile, I mean, but really, are they popular enough to get heart-shaped pancakes? This, I ask you!

So the NME (which someone laughed at me for reading stuff on their website) is all, “Yo, Gibby Hanes from the Butthole Surfers got all freaked out at a show.” I saw Anton Newcombe do much the same thing to a sound guy and there wasn’t a fight. No one got kicked in the head. No one was “fucking love.” No one had the Butthole Surfers’s bad teeth.

Okay, okay. Like, no one reading this is going to agree, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Electric Six. Their new video isn’t that absurd at all. I’ve been to Detroit and there really are guys in raptor masks and other guys with boas and short shorts. Fact. Don’t dispute; fact.

From the NME again (ooooo), Britney Spears is supposedly getting all S&M in here. Have to say it: she’s a slave 4 u. Just shoot me now.

Courtney Love accuses Ryan Adams of stealing from her daughter

with one comment

Sweet, celebrity blogging!

I have no idea if she’s speaking the truth, if she’s high, or if… whatever, but Courtney Love is convinced that Ryan Adams stole approximately 858,000 dollars from Frances Bean’s trust fund. Uhhh, okay. Ryan Adams annoys me — I’ll give you that. But, er, taking several years to figure out that almost a million dollars has gone missing? Okay! She’s completely insane, man. Insane! The only person I feel bad for is her daughter; it’s gotta be incredibly rough growing up knowing that your mom had “very safe sex” with Ryan Adams. I know it’d scar me, anyway.

News from the future: Kanye West’s Macbook Air is broken by President Bush.

with 8 comments

In the tradition of great celebrity bloggers like Josh Homme and Courtney Love before him, Kanye West nearly (??) breaks his Macbook Air in a typing fit.

I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall… Why???? I understand if people don’t like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I’ve ever had in my life. This is the most offended I’ve ever been… this is the maddest I ever will be. I’m typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want…. arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, fag whatever you can think of…. BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL!

What is up with this Josh Homme guy? And other n00s!

with 7 comments

Josh Homme has issued a bizarre statement regarding his recent freak out in Oslo at an a little chickenshit faggot object-throwing heckler. It’s amusingly worded, but then, Josh “I’m Never Too Sick to Fight” Homme still a lot to learn from Courtney Love’s blogging style.

Homme says:

Member of the Peanut Gallery:

Some journalists & citizens on the internet & are wondering: Q? Am I a homophobe because I included a slang for gay in with other “acceptable” curse words during a verbal lashing I gave a young concertgoer, after being hit by his shoe, during a show the other day? A= Nope. My gay family & friends, as well as myself, KNOW I am not a homophobe. For years now I’ve known gay is not a choice; one’s skin color doesn’t determine one’s intelligence level; & red hair doesn’t mean you’re someone’s stepchild. You see, it’s not the words, it’s their intent. I never said, nor suggested, that being gay is wrong, but apparently, based on your outrage to my flu-infused rant, you do! By that logic… I also told that young whipper snapper I’d have anal sex with him… how can I possibly reconcile these opposing viewpoints? I called him a pussy too. Does it mean I hate our one worlds’ collective vagina? I never have been nor intend to be politically correct. That’s your cross to bear. To me, that PC world would suck more shit than the porta-potty truck at Glastonbury. Homophobic? I’m in Queens of the Stone Age for crissake… You say, “So. Your band name doesn’t prove anything.” Maybe not. But it’s a helluv a lot more definitive than the logic of some watchdog… (sorry canine-American, canine-European, canine-African, canine-Australian & canine-Asian) moralist, keeping score from pure perfectionville? If your glass house is squeegeed that clean & you need to do something, do what the great philosopher Bill Hick’s once suggested: — forgive me-. Or don’t. I’m not asking for either, OK? I think you should let both of your cheeks go loose so the stick will drop out. Either way I expect that you’ll soon find another injustice from your chair, then roll to your bullhorn & point it out to the rest of us… Because you’re so above it all. Or If you’ll allow me to translate a wish of mine into your PC lingo:
Will you please go have, consensual, sex with yourself.
Pretty please with all natural, carbon offset sugar on top.

Sincerely,
Mr. Missundastood

Yeah, okay, Baby Duck. QotSA has put out some good stuff and Eagles of Death Metal is a fun band, but Josh man, what the hell are you doing, dude?

In other news, because I know TJ is a big Gorillaz fan, I thought I would mention the new Gorillaz documentary.

Bill “Do it Live” O’Reilly, the inspiration for the greatest URL in the history of man, thinks that Chris Martin is a pinhead.

[redlasso id=”b5e72ece-cec7-4c2e-82c6-346367635ded”]

I see O’Reilly and I have found something to agree on. I think we disagree on why he’s a pinhead, but we roughly agree that he’s sort of a megaloser.

Amy Winehouse may well have TB. True / not true? I have no clue, but it’s definitely not every day you hear that a popular British member of the Royal Family singer has tuberculosis.
