|Ozzy Vs Simon Cowell|
Osbourne is furious that Cowell continually slags off kids who take part in the TV show auditions in search of a showbiz break.
Ozzy believes the show "damns" people just for trying their best. "Tell you what, Simon: get up there and show us how it's meant to be done," he stormed in Heat magazine.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
|Nin Label Fan Rip Off|
Herald Sun: Did you have a word to anyone?
Trent: Well, in Brisbane I end up meeting and greeting some record label people, who are pleasant enough, and one of them is a sales guy, so I say "Why is this the case?" He goes "Because your packaging is a lot more expensive". I know how much the packaging costs — it costs me, not them, it costs me 83 cents more to have a CD with the colour-changing ink on it. I'm taking the hit on that, not them. So I said "Well, it doesn't cost $10 more." "Ah, well, you're right, it doesn't. Basically it's because we know you've got a core audience that's gonna buy whatever we put out, so we can charge more for that. It's the pop stuff we have to discount to get people to buy it. True fans will pay whatever." And I just said "That's the most insulting thing I've heard. I've garnered a core audience that you feel it's OK to rip off? F--- you."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

|Elton Nixes Red Piano Tour|
The six dates in five European cities were shelved after the tour promoter said it "could not guarantee to put the shows on".

|Babs Still Screwing Fans|
The Adusbef and Codacons groups urged the city of Rome and the Italian Olympic Committee to deny permission for Streisand to perform at the Stadio Flaminio on June 15. It is the 65-year-old singer's first-ever concert in Italy and the start of her European tour.
The ticket prices, which range from just under $200 to more than $1,200, are "absurd and shameful," the groups said in a statement Monday. [See full story for more] - Click Here for the Full Story

The weird thing about all this? It was probably unintentional, but the Times piece curiously echoed a 2002 piece from the satirical newspaper The Onion titled "RIAA Sues Radio Stations For Giving Away Free Music." After the jump, we pair three sets of quotes from each article, and invite you to sniff out which quote is from yesterday's story, and which was culled from the prescient parody. It's actually a little harder than you might think! [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
