Rock N Women: Linda Perry
antiMusic reports: If you are looking for a modern day Renaissance woman, look no further than Linda Perry. Whether you are talking about her personal musical career or her much sought after talents as a producer and songwriter, Perry has climbed heights others just dream about. With a resume stretching from Cheap Trick, Grace Slick and Christina Aguilera to Gwen Stefani and Courtney Love, Perry isn't afraid to step outside the box and make the artists she works with do the same. We conclude our Rock n Women special with a very special conversation Morley recently had with Linda where she gives us a lot of insight into her career and provides some exclusive insider stories as well! In this excerpt Linda tells us (for the very first time) the real story about how she helped make Pink's smash CD Missundaztood happen� despite the record company. 

Here Linda just described how she hooked up with Pink and made the album. Linda : �There was no effort in making Missundaztood at all. Except for the fact that I did get fired, which is a funny story. I always forget about this. I actually got fired because the management on the label thought I was going too far. So they fired me. I was very upset by this, and going what? You're going to need this kind of music, she needs these songs. No body wants to hear this white girl with R&B music. She's not an R&B girl. So I hired myself back and went and finished all the songs we had started cuz we already had all the vocals and everything. I hired myself back, took my own money, paid for it, to finish it up and then gave it to them. And they were like, "Oh my god, this is brilliant!" And I was just, "You a**holes." That's the funny part. I was fired, and I hired myself back. They never hired me back, I just hired myself back.

antiMUSIC: That's amazing. Are those people still in their jobs?

Linda: Yeah�.no, no, no. One of them is gone. But that was a funny story that nobody actually knows. You're the first one.

Most Ridiculous Metal Album Covers
Stuff Magazine reports: Mr. Show vet Brian Posehn has made a name for himself tickling your funny bone with his strange sense of humor. But the new album from the "comedian of comedy," titled Live In: Nerd Rage, also features the stand-up plugging in to thrash with a shredding supergroup. Banking on that experience, we asked him to break down the 10 most ridiculous heavy-metal album covers of all time. [here is one and ten. See full story for all of them] 

10. Poison, Look What the Cat Dragged In
I'm gonna have that cat put down. It keeps dragging s***ty bands in here. I remember the "who are these ladies?" reaction I had when I first saw this album at Tower Records in Sacramento in 1986. I also remember putting it down and grabbing Megadeth. 

1. Pantera, Metal Magic
I love this band with all my heart, but the covers for their first two albums are unbelievably terrible. That weird wolf-like creature with a blade� Isn't the point of being a kickass wolfman that you don't need a weapon? And why is he nude except for a belt? Kickass invisible pants? I just picture that art on the town loser's van.
