Ozzy Vs Midget
rockdirt reports: Guitar World magazine asked several rockers "What's your most 'Spinal Tap' moment?" Ozzy Osbourne remembered when he lost his patience with the midget Black Sabbath hired for a tour. "He showed up late, he drank....It got to me after awhile," Osbourne explained. "So, one night, when he wanted to get on the tour bus, I threw him in the luggage compartment. Somebody grabbed me and said: 'What you're doing is not only illegal but it's inhumane.' I lost it. I yelled: 'He's my [bleeping] midget and I'll [bleeping] do what I want with him.' [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Britney Flop
antiMusic reports: The ratings are in and did people flock to UPN to see Britney's reality TV debut?

Fox's "House" won the slot, CBS went country for second, a "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" repeat was third. ABC's sh*tcoms "George Lopez" and "According to Jim" were fourth and WB's "One Tree Hill" placed fifth, leaving Britney in the dust at sixth place. Then again 3.5 million would be a hit on MTV and Britney did almost double UPN's viewership in that timeslot. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Coldplay Vs EMI
BBC reports: Coldplay's Chris Martin has dismissed pressure to boost his record company's profits, saying: "Shareholders are the great evil of this modern world." 

EMI issued a profit warning in February partly because the release of the UK band's latest album X&Y was delayed. 

But Coldplay frontman Martin said: "I don't really care about EMI. I'm not really concerned about that." 

He spoke about the "the slavery that we are all under to shareholders" ahead of the album's release in early June. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
