Game Vs Fiddy Pt II
Gigwise reports: The Game has reignited his long-running feud with 50 Cent by launching a stinging attack on his rival rapper.

My Ruin 4th Surgery
blabbermouth.net reports: Guitarist Mick Murphy of MY RUIN boyfriend of the group's lead vocalist, Tairrie B., who was "seriously injured" in a car accident in late September has issued the following update on Tairrie's condition:

"Tairrie asked me to post a blog here with an update on her operation yesterday since so many of you have been writing in with positive messages and concerns. While we thought this Friday the 13th was going to be the third and final surgery, the doctor felt that she was not ready for the graft as planned so instead she took Tairrie into surgery and pulled together a good portion of the skin on her arm and sewed what she could which reduced the size of the open wound quite a bit. She explained to us that she would like to try and save as much of the skin on B's arm as possible and wanted the grafted area to be as small as it can be. While this is great news, it also extends the process and it is now even more painful than it was before. Tairrie is set for her 4th and final surgery (hopefully) this Wednesday, October 18th.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Emo Clowns
pr-inside reports: KASABIAN have rubbished MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE as "clowns", insisting they will soon fall out of favour even though they have just topped the British singles charts with WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE. The CUTT OFF rockers can't understand how anyone can enjoy emo music, and are hopeful the whole genre will soon disappear completely.

Singer TOM MEIGHAN says, "It's like ventriloquists' music. It's weird and dark. They don't have anything positive to say. The only good news is that it won't last. These clowns won't be around for much longer. "[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
