    Eminem didnt hold back in his cypher -- called "The Storm (Freestyle)" -- against Trump and his supporters, at BETs Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday (Oct. 10). He protested the racist 94-year-old president by cutting deep into issues like Islamophobia, white supremacy and racism against Black Lives Matter protesters. Says he wants to lower our taxes, he raps in one line. Then who's gonna pay for his extravagant trips / Back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions? He points at the hypocrisy of Trumps pro-military rhetoric by touching on his past comments criticizing John...

  • Kiss leads Pledge of Allegiance at Gretna Fest

    The spectacular blizzard of confetti that fluttered down during "(I Wanna) Rock and Roll All Nite" had barely settled Saturday (Sept. 30) at the Gretna Heritage Festival when the Kiss concert took an unexpected turn toward the patriotic. "It's always cool to love your country," frontman Paul Stanley told the mostly appreciative audience. Joined by Gretna politicians, the singer-guitarist congratulated Army Major Steve Roberts for his 30-plus years of military service. "Some people believe that freedom is free," he said. But Kiss, Stanley said, appreciates military sacrifice.In an odd visual juxtaposition of symbols, Stanley, dressed in a glittering black, midriff-exposing...

"It's always cool to love your country," frontman Paul Stanley said, according to a report.

White says Aldean's people turned down the offer -- saying he was shaken up from the shooting and might never perform live again.

    What do the Las Vegas massacre, the Charleston church shooting and last weekends Islamist stabbing of two Frenchwomen have in common? The murderers sense of inadequate recognition, and the primal lure of the ecstasy of killing. Acts of deadly terror are in fashion, the default position for a wide range of frustrated egotists. From lone-wolf Islamists enabled by faith, through punk racists, to a high-stakes gambler who craved casino perks slum-dweller, misfit or property owner these terrorists shared a sense that their societies wouldnt give them their due.

    For much of the 1990s and certainly the 00s, it looked very much like Adam Ants career had hit the skids. Manners & Physique, from 1990, and 95s Wonderful albums were hardly disasters, but in comparison to the huge success that he'd enjoyed prior to that, they were largely ignored. Ant was down and apparently out. There wouldnt be another album until 2013. A brush with the law and a spell in psychiatric care after throwing a car alternator through the window of a London bar was the biggest media splash that he made in the first decade of the...

    As the comedian Marc Maron pointed out in his new standup special, Too Real, Tom Petty was the rare artist who both liberal bohemians and cultural conservatives could agree upon. Everybody loves Tom Petty and burritos, said Maron, though he added that even Petty might not be able to help him communicate with Trump supporters. I dont think Petty is enough to bridge this gap. I just dont think that he has this power at this juncture. Petty, the beloved American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, has passed away at 66 years of age. He was hospitalized following a heart attack...
