|Madden Woman Beater?|
According to police sources, the woman claimed Madden struck her on the left breast "with the heel of his hand" as the rocker tried to escort his girlfriend, Nicole Richie, out of the back door of Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills.

Hell, 8,400 half hours is only a pimple on the program director's butt -- an insignificant amount of time.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

But Wilson is defiant in the face of adversity, saying that the band believe they have made "a great record."
He told 6music: "I don't want to sound big-headed, but anyone who says they don't like the new album is just lying. It's weird, we know it's good." [denial = don't even notice I am lying.. see full story for more blathering from said asshat] - Click Here for the Full Story
