Buckcherry Fights Back
Buckcherry reports: In response to a lawsuit filed September 7th in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleging that rock band Buckcherry and its labels, Warner Music Group and Atlantic Records, willingly allowed a 16-year-old girl into a music video shoot, Buckcherry's attorney, Skip Miller of the Century City-based firm Miller Barondess, LLP, has issued the following statement: "The attorneys for the plaintiff (identified only as Jane Doe) have been talking to the press about this case. We feel it is necessary to set the record straight. The claims in this case are entirely unfounded and without merit. Strict precautions were taken to ensure that only those over the age of 18 would gain access to the music video shoot. The casting ad called for over-18 talent only, signs were posted to that effect at the venue, and IDs were checked at the door. This woman not only used a phony ID to gain access, but filled out and signed a talent release form with what we now know to be false birth date information to match her phony ID. She was later seen boasting into the camera about her exploits in the video. This lawsuit was filed almost a year after the video was shot, only after the financial success of the band. We are going to defend this action vigorously and let the evidence speak for itself."

Rockstar Crowned
antiMusic reports: In one of the most predictable reality TV moves since the genre became a mainstay in primetime, Lukas Rossi walked away with the gig of fronting the novelty band consisting of Tommy Lee, Gilby Clark and Jason Newsted. The group will release an album and tour this winter and who knows what they'll do after that. The 2nd and 3rd place singers (Toby Rand and Dilana Metals***inherface) will likely land record deals and find their own success following the tour where the contestants will open up for the "supergroup" which a court has order to change their name from Supernova. No word on what they will call themselves at this point. We like Metals***inherface but she didn't win. - Click Here for the Full Story

Tool Doesn't Suck
MTV reports: Tool canceled a show Tuesday night, calling off their gig at the AT&T Center in San Antonio because singer Maynard James Keenan was too sick to perform. In an interview posted on local radio station 99.5 KISS-FM's Web site, guitarist Adam Jones explained, "It's very unfortunate 'cause when I get sick or [drummer Danny Carey] or [bassist Justin Chancellor] get sick, we can still go on with the show. But Maynard's got fever, he's coughing up stuff, he's hoarse and he doesn't want everyone to think he sucks by going out and trying anyway.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

MTV Idol
PR reports: MTV Networks is one of the world's leading creators in content across all media platforms, with more than 120 channels. Starting September 18 at 6pm ET/PT, MTV will premiere a brand new series -- "Little Talent Show." MTV has put out the call for people who believe they have what it takes to be considered a 'triple threat:' the performer who can master the art of singing, dancing and acting. 

Each episode begins with seven performers who demonstrate their skills in three rounds of the competition, including singing, dancing and acting. The series will utilize a rotating panel of celebrity judges including stars from MTV's "Making The Band," "American Idol," the world of soap operas, and more, who will critique the contestant's performances and ultimately decide which two are most qualified to face-off in the "Triple Threat Round." This final round is the ultimate challenge where all three skills are combined and where only one performer will emerge victorious - winning $500 and the chance to be named that day's most talented performer. MTV's "Little Talent Show" premieres Monday, September 18. The 20 episode series will air daily, Monday-Thursday with repeats on Friday.

Paris Blinks
TMZ reports: TMZ has exclusive video of Paris Hilton and Blink-182 frontman Travis Barker in an extended make-out session at Manhattan club Marquee, and the couple looks extremely cozy as they whisper in each other's ears, caress each other's necks, shoulders, and chests.

After a long night of Fashion Week after-parties, Hilton and Barker headed to exclusive hotspot Marquee, and took up residence in one of the club's banquettes. Despite the considerable racket around them, Paris and Travis talked intently with one another, and then engaged in a long, intense kiss, oblivious to the pulsing throngs. Some time after their lip-lock, Paris checks her mobile device and decides that she's got other places to be, leaving Travis behind. [see full story for the video]- Click Here for the Full Story
