Rosie Outs Aiken
TMZ reports: Rosie O'Donnell started a bitchfight with fellow morning-diva Kelly Ripa when she accused Ripa of making a "homophobic" remark. The fracas started on "The View" when O'Donnell said that Ripa was "homophobic" for her scolding of Aiken when he co-hosted her show the other day and playfully put his hand over her mouth, prompting Ripa to snap, "I don't know where that hand has been." Rosie suggested that if Aiken had been a "straight guy, a cute guy" or, for instance, Mario Lopez, Ripa wouldn't have made the same remark. (Aiken, of course, has never acknowledged that he's gay.)

Ripa was incensed enough to call into the show immediately, firing away that Rosie's accusation was "outrageous" and "irresponsible" and that Ripa made the remark last Friday because it was "cold and flu season" and that Aiken had shaken the hands of the studio audience.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

antiMusic reports: In his latest MorleyView, antiMusic's very own Morley Seaver caught up with Adrian Erlandsson who announced his depture from Cradle of Filth last week.

Here's what he had to say:

antiMUSIC: Well, the big news first. You've left Cradle. Can you tell us what led to your decision? ** Adrian: I joined Cradle in the summer of '99 and have had some good times creating music with the band and playing live. But as a musician when things become too familiar, it is time to move on. I need a certain edge in everything that I do when that it gone it's time to move on. So I decided to leave and concentrate on other things. antiMUSIC: Why did you pick this time to leave when the tour has just begun? ** Adrian: There is more to it than that. I had left before but we had to sort out the legal sides before it could be announced. 

antiMUSIC: How and when did Nemhain come to be? ** Adrian: Me and my wife Amber have been talking along time about how amazing it would be to have a band together, creating music together, playing together and eventually touring the world together. We had some of our close friends over and realized that we had all the members that we need for the band right here in the room! In the excitement an acoustic guitar came out and there was the first Nemhain Jam! Amber already had a lot of lyrics and song ideas which Cherry and her started working on straight away. The fire and devotion within the band beats any band I have been in before!!!
