Rock ’n’ roll is a simple thing — it’s about sex. And moving, walking, talking. Living, in other words. And The Rolling Stones embody that.
The wiry 69-year-old lead singer, strutting and skipping around an enormous stage shaped like his own enormous mouth and tongue, with a microphone occasionally shoved down the front of his extremely tight jeans, is not hiding anything from the roughly 17,000 people who paid stupendous sums to see him do what he and his friends have been doing for 50 years.

“Celebrity Rehab” star Dr. Drew Pinsky says he’s throwing in the towel on the controversial show. There’s no doubt that it was exploitative, despite his best intentions, but Pinsky says he’s tired of taking all the heat” for every death, especially when loss of life unfortunately goes with the territory.

Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant is the latest celeb to file a restraining order against a nutty fan. TMZ reports that a woman who claims to have been in a relationship with the dude for more than three years has not taken the news that he’s dating singer Patty Griffin very well. “Your betrayal with another woman still stabs my mind,” she allegedly said in a message to him. “I’m telling you that rotten crotch is ruining you.” Read More

Decadent Finnish rocker Ville Valo has never gone in for self-analysis. Always moving so fast with his Goth-metal outfit HIM, he barely has noticed the nearly two decades flying by since its formation.
