Avril Marries
antiMusic reports: If you were holding out some small hope of hooking up with sk8r gurl Avril Lavigne, you're miniscule odds have just been reduced to zero. She married Deryck Whibley of the ponk boyband Sum 41, keeping it a Canadian affair. However, they were joined in holy matrimony not in their native country but California. 

The nuptials shouldn't come as a surprise to the fans of both pop singers as Whibley popped the question to Avril back in June 2005 in Venice as Avril was touring Europe. The blessed event took place outside at a private estate in the coastal city of Montecito, California. Reportedly 110 guests were invited to witness the non-denominational ceremony.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Racist MySpace Hackers
TMZ reports: Green Tea Monkeys, an indie ska/punk/reggae band from Germany, hoped to tap into MySpace's potential to achieve the success of other once no-name bands like Hawthorn Heights, Hollywood Undead and even Jack White's new baby The Raconteurs -- all were able to capitalize on the social networking site in their rise to prominence. But what they never thought they would have to do is apologize to their entire fan base for unauthorized racist bulletins post under the band's name. "For us as a little band, it's worse when our fans won't believe in us ... to have to show people that we're not talking sh*t and that they can still believe and trust in what we're saying" they say. 

Over the past couple of months, a rash of hacking has taken over MySpace, the most popular Web site since, well, the Web. The scale of the hacks has the MySpace community up in arms and is prompting people to ask when MySpace is going to step up. The hacks are occurring through the bulletin section of each individual's MySpace profile. The counterfeit bulletins causing the biggest uproar are those containing defamatory racial remarks that would make the grand wizard of the KKK blush. It appears that the three most common racist posts are: "I'm Gonna Kill Y'all Ni**as," "F*ck All Y'all Ni**as!," and "Get Out of America You F*ckin Ni**as!"[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
