Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab after having a fit when his band’s set was cut short to give more time to co-headliner Usher at a recent concert in Las Vegas.
The Green Day frontman exploded onstage after he was told he only had a minute left to play, imploding at the apparent snub with a slew of curse words and spittle.
He reminded the crowd that he had been around since 1988, and that, “I’m not f---ing Justin Bieber you motherf---ers!” Then he smashed his guitar and stormed off.
A statement on the band’s website said the 40-year-old frontman is going to treatment for substance abuse. The band will cancel some of its upcoming shows meant to promote a new album.
James Franco is further proving that he is a jack-of-all-trades, yet master of none. He has written, acted, emceed and painted, all to tepid response.
Now he’s trying his hand at music with a single by his new band, Daddy, called “Love in the Old Days.” Franco says it is Motown-inspired, but it actually sounds like a grizzled Lee Hazlewood talking his way through an acid flashback in front of someone tuning an acoustic guitar.
“I know I do a lot of things,” he told Rolling Stone magazine. “I’m sure there are a lot of skeptical people, hearing about me doing music. ... To me, it all comes from a similar place.”
So, what’s next for this blahville chameleon? Maybe a TV show, “So James Franco Thinks He Can Dance!”
You know it’s a slow week for smut when former “Facts of Life” star Lisa Whelchel’s divorce is trending.
The National Enquirer has the right idea, and is instead going with a story on former “Happy Days” star Erin Moran (aka Joanie), who is down on her luck, has been thrown out of her mother-in-law’s trailer in Indiana and is now homeless and allegedly boozing it up Hoosier style.
She just received a judgment for past “Happy Days” royalties, but sources say she will blow through that money before you can say “wide-mouth can.”
Where is Chachi when she needs him?
