Lost Doors Track
blabbermouth.net reports: AOL Music has confirmed that former JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell has unearthed a lost track featuring the vocals of THE DOORS' Jim Morrison and will be releasing the song, "Woman in the Window", on his SATELLITE PARTY project, due early next year.

According to AOL Music, Farrell composed the music to complement a tape of Morrison reading one of his original poems. After a very brief musical intro, Morrison's vocals begin: "I am the woman in the window." The song is a potent reminder of how beautiful Morrison's voice could be as his sing-song vocals, reminiscent of "Love Street", are delivered against a musical backdrop Farrell describes as "a little down-tempo, a little chill."

Eminem Vs Playmate
TMZ reports: Kendra Wilkinson, one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends and one of the stars of the E! series "The Girls Next Door," found out firsthand just how mean Eminem can be. She also found out just how fast celebrity publicists can work when cleaning up one of their client's messes. This particular mess involves Slim Shady himself and his alleged poor conduct on a video shoot. According to Kendra, Em threw water on the Playmate's face for no apparent reason during a shoot for Eminem and Akon's new music video, "Smack that Ass." Afterwards, Kendra unleashed her fury over the situation with a scathing message on her MySpace page.

We contacted Em's reps to see what their side of the story was. When asked if Marshal would be issuing either an apology or a statement we were told very blatantly, "Nope!" [see full story for more] - Click Here for the Full Story

Jessica Silenced
hecklerspray reports: Jessica Simpson isn't just a bumbling, stupid-mouthed, manjawed, divorced reality TV dingbat, you know. Jessica Simpson is actually a bumbling, stupid-mouthed, manjawed divorced reality TV dingbat who sometimes sings a bit.

Every know and again, God sends a song down from heaven on a golden cloud and into Jessica Simpson's lungs, ready for her to beautifully exhale it back to the world. Only, last time this happened, there was a bit of a mix-up and God accidentally sent down Holiday by Madonna instead. Jessica Simpson covered it all up by renaming the song A Public Affair, and she would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for a badly-timed bout of laryngitis which has decimated Jessica Simpson's publicity push and disappointed the three weirdos that actually like Jessica Simpson for her music.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Corpsickle, the undead desecrators of death metal have risen from their fetid tomb to unleash a plague of sickening death metal. The debut recording of the Zombie of Necrophilia and Corpsemaster General was carefully obtained through a meticulously placed dead walker capturing torture device.
