Naked Britney
antiMusic reports: Taking a page out of Demi Moore's playbook, pregnant pop star Britney Spears has appeared nude in the pages of a magazine. In the August issue of Harper's Bazaar Spears appears in several layouts as well as the cover in the nude, using creative angles and her arms to cover up her famous chest. 

The pictures come as a surprise and finally fulfils the longtime wishes of some Britney watchers. Some that do not have a pregnant fetish may be a bit disappointed in the photos of the former blond bombshell, now sporting dark hair and a big belly. 

If you want to see the photos, click the full story link as jnd has posted them in their report. Hopefully this shoot won't "help" Britney's career in the same way it helped Demi's.

The attackers told their victims they were Juggalos, devoted fans of the Detroit rap group Insane Clown Posse.

"We haven't confirmed that but that's what they are claiming," Guttu said.

Silly News: Rejects Vs Women
TMZ reports: Be careful about putting the word "rejects" in your rock band; people might take the name seriously.

That's especially true if you give an interview that includes joking about women having no "sense of rationality and direction." That's how singer Tyson Ritter of the band All-American Rejects characterizes how he thinks "like a woman" while writing songs.

No XS for Depp
hecklerspray reports: Very very soon, you'll be seeing more of Johnny Depp than you'd ever imagined, as Pirates Of The Caribbean 2 is released allowing Johnny Depp the chance to do his "Gee, I don't know why I'm so famous" shtick all the time.

But although Johnny Depp has entered the Hollywood big league by doing a series of comedy double takes while pretending to be Keith Richards, you'll never see him play Michael Hutchence from INXS. Despite reports to the contrary, Depp will not be playing Hutchence in a biopic of his life. And a good job too - the soundtrack would be s***, for one.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Zeppelin Top Beatles
Blabbermouth reports: To celebrate their pending tenth anniversary on July 1, 2006, AVRev.com has compiled its list of the Top 100 Rock Bands of All Time. Unlike past lists that are based on mere opinion, the AVRev.com "Top Rock Bands" list uses the same type of analytical tools employed by sports franchises and applies them to rock bands to objectively determine which bands are the best. Among the categories considered were: U.S. Sales (100 points), Songs/Songwriting (100), Technical Ability (100), Live Performance (50), Consistency vs. Longevity (50) and Random (50). Random is a category that allows a judge to vote on how likely he or she is to want to hear a band's songs on their iPod playlist.[Some of these point rankings appear to be entirely subjective as The Police, Stone Temple Pilots and Bon Jovi all score higher in "technical ability" than Iron Maiden. Even scarier, Motley Crue and Duran Duran only came out a few points behind Maiden in that department]. 
01. LED ZEPPELIN - 525 points
02. THE BEATLES - 514 points
03. PINK FLOYD - 506 points
05. VAN HALEN - 496 points

Copyright Tax
tinfoil reports: On Thursday, [Spanish] Congress approved the changes to the intellectual property laws in Spain � copyright laws if you will. The idea is that a small canon will have to be paid on every blank media � from a blank CD to mobile phones and even a memory stick. However, computer hard disks and ADSL lines have, for some reason been left out of the legislation, despite their widespread use for illegal copying of music and films. Somehow the money collected in the new canon will then be paid back to the owner of the copyright. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
