|OJ Arrested for Armed Robbery|
Las Vegas police arrested O.J. Simpson on Sunday, saying he was part of an armed group who burst into a hotel room and snatched memorabilia related to his sports career, reports AP who further report that "Simpson was taken away from The Palms casino-hotel by plainclothes officers a day after the arrest of a golfing buddy who police say accompanied him with a gun in the Thursday night holdup."
OJ could get 30 years for just one count of armed robbery. Simpson claimed that he and the others involved were in the room trying to retrieve stolen items that including his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture he took with the late FBI dictator J. Edgar Hoover. He claims that there were no guns involved but police reportedly seized two firearms they believe were used in the robbery. One other man was arrested and police are on the look out for several more. We'll keep you posted if riots break out in Brentwood but for now if you want to know more about this, then AP will hook you up right- here
|Disney Bans Metal, antiMusic calls for Disney Boycott|
The Mickey Mouse execs have launched a war against metal, causing the cancellations of various metal shows at the House of Blues venues at their Disneyland and Disneyworld properties. According to the LA times, five metal concerts have either been moved off those properties or cancelled outright by Live Nation who run the House of Blues venues. Of course, that corporation offered up a lame excuse. John Vlautin, vice president of communications for Live Nation said in a statement last week "House of Blues offers a range of entertainment to match the audience at our venues. It was determined that the mix of entertainment at our two Disney locations should be different from our other venues."
We here at antiMusic will do our part and we will no longer carry any articles related to anything Disney including Hollywood Records until they stop their censorship. We encourage you to join us in this boycott and refrain from all things Disney. Shouldn't be too hard. - find out which bands were banned
|Fan Impaled At Concert|
Contact Music has the story: A Papa Roach fan is recovering in hospital after impaling his thigh on an inch-think spike while trying to climb a 12-foot iron fence to gain access to the Bad Boys of Rock concert in Pennsylvania.
Firefighters had to cut part of the fence away as the unnamed rock fan fell in and out of consciousness at the York concert on Wednesday (11Sep07), which also featured performances by Hinder and Buckcherry. The fan underwent surgery on Wednesday night.- more on this story
|Kid Rock Says A Bitch Got Slapped|
Steve The Producer was kind enough to send over a few more highlights for us to enjoy: Kid Rock denied that he and Tommy are fighting over Pamela Anderson. As far as he's concerned, Tommy or anybody else can have her. "The last thing I wanna do is to keep having my name associated with Pam and [Tommy Lee]." He added that divorcing Pam and getting out of that relationship was, quote, "the best thing I ever did."
Kid said the fight started because of, "Five or six years of complete and utter disrespect" that Tommy has shown him. Things really came to a head during the divorce. Pam and Tommy were throwing a birthday party for one of their kids, and Tommy took Pam's BlackBerry when she wasn't looking, and started e-mailing Kid Rock. Kid says it was, quote, "Some of the most horrendous things I'd ever heard. . . very disrespectful things." But Kid Rock didn't allow himself to be goaded into an e-mail war. He says, quote, "I'm not a talker. I just e-mailed him back and said, 'I will see you one day,' period. And when I came back from the bathroom at those awards and he was sitting right next to my seat at my table, that's it, that's enough. And I gave him the opportunity to stand up like a man, and he did not. And if you watch the tape, he doesn't start running his mouth until the security guards grab his arms."
As for Tommy's recent apology to pretty much everyone at the VMAs BUT Kid Rock, Kid says, quote, "I'm not apologizing to anyone, because whoever put us all in the room, whatever, they got what they wanted. And this has been a long time coming. . . I did what any man would have done."- Check out the full interview here
You see Durst, who has been known to get a pie in the face from time to time, deliberately hit two people with his car. The incident happened way back in October of last year in Los Angeles. Maybe he was frustrated with his lack of media coverage and was trying to generate some interest or maybe they gave him an honest opinion of his music? We don't know, but we do know the Limp one put himself on the mercy of the court for these crimes and got off pretty light.
He was handed the gift of a 120-day suspended jail sentence (meaning he doesn't actually have to stay at the Paris Hilton Chino).- more on this story
