50 Cent, Britney Spears, and Axl Rose (hey, this sounds like a Jay Sanford blog)

Well, about a month ago...Dr. Pepper decided to have some fun with Axl Rose. I say Axl Rose. Everyone else calls them Guns 'N Roses. I can't really call them that. I mean, that band had Slash, Duff, and all those guys. Then they had Buckethead for a brief time. I'm not sure who the lineup is now, other than Axl Rose at vocals (and wow, what a horrible singer that dude is...and, horrible hairstyle these days, too; cornrows never looks good, do they? but on a white/red head???) I digress.

They said if Chinese Democracy, the album that was supposed to be released 15 years ago, would be released by some date (I forget now), everyone gets a free Dr. Pepper. Axl laughed about that and made a few comments to the press.

Taco Bell last week said that 50 Cent should change his name to 79 or 99 Cent. I think it had something to do with the price of one of their food items or something. But, "50" (pronounced by the hip crowd as "fi'tty") said that it was a sleazy stunt (rappers aren't into sleazy stuff...just check out their classy videos). And, that his legal team would be talking to them. Yikes!

Well...what musician blog (wait a minute...am I referring to Britney Spears as a musician?) would be complete without her getting into trouble? Okay, it was one of her bodyguards, but still.

Apparently, he shoved a camera into the face of one of the cameramen following her around. Now, I've been saying for years, they should do that. I actually think, they should carry mace around. If the paparazzi get to close, they should get sprayed. I mean, as much as I hate Naomi Campbell, and wish she would've spent 10 years in jail for her recent stunt on the airplane...she should still be able to walk to and from her car to the courthouse, without having to slow down for reporters and cameras. And, if her progress is impeeded...well, her people should smash some faces in.

This whole blog makes my head sing "Americaaaaa, f**k yeaaaaaaaa".

A douchebag is worshipped. Rappers got beef with beef. Celebrities bodyguards are straight out the WWE.

Gravy.

Nah, doesn't sound like Sanford. Just a really nasty menage-a-twat.

You're right about Axl. He looks like Carrot Top's wegro brother. Or some kind of Chia pet they give you in rehab to teach you to take care of something.

And Taco Hell shoulda known better. If it was McDonald's, fitty would have been thrilled. Or at least content to settle out of court for what Mickey D's passes off as "food."

As for Britney, I'm not sure if I'm more out of patience with her, the stalkarazzi, or big gooney bodyguards that like to bust heads. Isn't there some button we can push to make all of them go away?

Well...Mathew McCaughney (does anyone know how to spell his name? I type it, and never know which letter to type next. It's like typing "bananaanana" and never being sure exactly when to stop).

He was surfing, and some of his surf buddies, beat the tar out of the paparazzi. One got a broken nose. And the police aren't charging anyone. Which is great. Now, some website, has them throwing theats back and forth, which sounds hysterical. A big gang fight is set up for Saturday.

I can just picture the good, bad, and ugly music playing....the photographers walking up with cameras at their sides, instead of six shooters. The surfers, with bottles of bullfrog on one hand, and leashes used as whips, in the other.

It could get ugly.
