Lil Jon's New Record


Posted March 23, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Atlanta's self-proclaimed King of Crunk Lil Jon just a bought a necklace so big, so bling, it breaks all records and is being included into the Guinness World Records as the largest diamond pendant on record.

The $500,000 pendant is 7.5 inches tall, six inches wide, and one inch thick, weighing 5.11 pounds with a total 73 carats of diamonds and the total stone count is 3,756 genuine round-cut white diamonds, set in 18-karat yellow and white gold. It read, “Crunk Ain’t Dead.” He bought it from jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills.

“I’m glad the Guinness World Records folks acknowledged me and my ‘Crunk Ain’t Dead’ piece,” Lil Jon said. “I grew up on reading and hearing about people and celebrities who break records in the Guinness World Records book and it always fascinated me. Now that I’m on the list, it feels great. Let’s just see how many rappers try to outdo my pendant and break my record. They don’t call me the King of Crunk for nothing!”

Flava Flav, you gonna put this fool in his place, homie?

The parents of a seven-month-old girl in Kungalv, Sweden named their child Metallica after the esteemed metal band of the same name (you know, the one that has sucked since the early ‘90s?).

Apparently there was some protest over the decision and it even went to Swedish court. One member of the jury actually objected to the ruling, claiming that the name will probably cause 'discomfort' to its bearer.

 The couple says they combined their first names to come up with Metallica. I think the kid is actually less likely to be embarrassed over the name, and more embarrassed over having parents named Met and Lica!

Okay, get this…

Some opera chick named Dame Kiri Te Kanawa won a lawsuit seeking damages after she canceled concert appearances with an Australian pop singer after learning women threw their underwear at him on stage!


It seems the 63-year-old soprano watched a Farnham concert DVD and was disturbed by what she saw. But Te Kanawa was sued by concert promotion company Leading Edge for $1.5 million after the planned concerts in 2005 with singer John Farnham fell through. She has to pay some legal costs, but basically got away with it.

Man, it’s a good thing this chick wasn’t opening for David Lee Roth!

Coffee overlords Starbucks just launched a record label based on its existing Hear Music brand.

For the venture, the java retailer is partnering with Concord Music Group, which controls several other labels and helped Starbucks sell the Grammy-winning "Genius Loves Company," an album of Ray Charles duets. Hear Music label will sign its own artists and sell records through Starbucks stores and other retailers.

"We're not setting this up so that Starbucks stores would have any advantage over other retailers," said Ken Lombard, president of Starbucks Entertainment.

No, of course not. Why would a major business conglomerate try to get an advantage over the competition? That would be just plain capitalist of them! And that, my friend, is not acceptable here in...oh wait...

Rocker Courtney Love is being accused of not paying a $181,000 rehab bill. California drug treatment facility Luxe claims that Love spent three months there in late-2005 and has since ignored demands to pay her outstanding tab.

In a Superior Court lawsuit, Beau Monde International, who owns Luxe, charges that Kurt Cobain's widow was treated at their Newport Beach facility, a "boutique" rehab center that allows no more than five patients at a time. Beau Monde says Love paid $10,000 after entering the facility in August 2005, but still owes the balance.

So what sort of treatments do you get at this particular rehab spot? How about spa and salon treatments, gourmet meals, and poolside massages, all enjoyed in luxurious fluffy robes and slippers! So how's that stuff supposed to get you off drugs???

How would you sentence supermodel Naomi Campbell for hitting her maid with a mobile phone?

Attend anger management classes?

Have her pay to cover the housekeeper's medical expenses?

Make her spend a week mopping floors at a New York City warehouse?

C'mon that last one seems a big far-fatched, doesn't it?

Nope. The super-bitch got slapped with all three punishments after pleading guilty to reckless assault, and starts scrubbing the Lower East Side Sanitation Department warehouse on March 19.

Note to all guys in New York: GET YOUR ASSES DOWN TO THE LOWER EAST SIDE SANITATION DEPARTMENT WAREHOUSE ON MARCH 19...and bring some tissue paper.

The family of deceased guitar god Jimi Hendrix has filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday over the use of his name to market a brand of vodka. Hendrix Electric Vodka is packaged in purple-tinted bottles and has Jimi Hendrix's face and signature above the label.

They claim that companies owned by Seattle businessman Craig Dieffenbach used trademarked material to market Hendrix Electric Vodka and other products, calling nthe promotional campaign was a "sick joke" because Hendrix's death in 1970 was tied to alcohol consumption.

"We are greatly concerned that there may be a perception that Experience Hendrix has, in some way, authorized this sale of vodka," said Janie Hendrix, Hendrix's adopted sister and chief executive of Experience Hendrix, in a statement. "As a matter of strict policy, we have never promoted an alcoholic beverage."

Dieffenbach said the lawsuit has zero legal basis because a 2005 federal court ruled that Experience Hendrix does not own the rights to Jimi's name and image, only his music.

Oh, snap!

A recent amendment to legislation changing the height requirement for rear splash guards on trucks in Arizona that would have resulted in the ban of mudflap images deemed obscene or hateful has been defeated in the state legislature.

Thank God! Because if?we can't put obscene or hateful messages on my big rig's mudflaps here in America, then what the hell have our boys been fighting for over in that godforsaken desert?

Introduced by Tempe State Representative Ed Ableser, the amendment's aims to help promote family values and help curb pornography and sexual predators.

Apparently Ableser saw a vehicle sporting mudflaps that used a derogatory term for black children on them and was so incensed he came up with the proposed ban. But the amendment proved too far-reaching and seemed to be more about taste than values.

But the mudflap controversy doth not stop there. Over on the east coast, in Washington County, Sheriff deputy Matthew Bragunier complains he sees fake bull genitals flopping from the hitches of pickup trucks at least once a day and wants to put a stop to it! So he teamed up with Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washington/Allegany, and filed a bill for Maryland to ban the toys and others like them. The bill prohibits any "model, sign, sticker or other item" that displays uncovered human or animal genitals, as well as human buttocks or female breasts, from motor vehicles.

Joe Brings Sexy Back


Posted February 5, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

In your head, create the best coffeehouse experience ever? Would it involve a waitress in a bikini or tight-fitting t-shirt? How about a choice of drinks with names such as Wet Dream, Sexual Mix or Erotic Pleasure? Or how about if the baristas at wear sheer negligees with visible pink panties or Playboy-style sex fantasy costumes?

It's called "sexpresso," kiddies, and at Seattle area hotspots such as the Sweet Spot Caf?, Cowgirls Espresso, the Natte Latte, the Best Friend Espresso and Moka Girls this new trend in very much in full force.

Well, since there's a coffee stops every 20 feet in Seattle it makes sense that they'd they are on the cutting edge of coffee technology (commonly known as "Coffology"). Is this a new fad or the next level of java consumption? Who cares, just get me up to Seattle for a cup of joe NOW!!!

Gene Simmons Wears It Well


Posted February 4, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

As if he doesn't have a big enough empire, KISS mastermind Gene Simmons is starting a new clothing line called Moneybag. The clothes will make their debut at Las Vegas' annual Magic Show convention later this month.

Gene describes it as a "joint venture partner is an interesting and creative Canadian guy by the name of Jason Dussault. Jason grew up a KISS fan, among other things, and has quickly made a name for himself in the Great White North with his line of Deuce Custom Ink clothing (since changed to Dussault)."

"Our intention is to put out cutting edge hoodies, leather goods, belts and other items featuring the Moneybag logo, which I have owned for over 25 years. I have used the logo in my Gene Simmons Tongue magazine, Simmons Books/Audio, Simmons Records, and for a short time, I tried the clothing line with another entity, but couldn't find a happy working relationship. This one feels right."

What next? KISS condoms? LOL! Oh wait...
