Courtney Love mouthed off the other day about how horrible it was that The Muppets made a parody of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in the movie, and now Jack Black who actually stars in the scene has commented back.
Jack Black responded Thursday to Courtney Love’s claim that ‘Muppets’ filmmakers violated the memory of Kurt Cobain. Love had said using a Nirvana song in the movie constituted a “rape,” and Black brushed aside her criticism by calling her statements “absurd, absurd, absurd.”
Black, who appears in the ‘Muppets’ scene in question, told E!’s Marc Malkin that he holds “no one in higher esteem in the world of rock” than the late Nirvana frontman.
“Kurt Cobain for me is at the top of the pyramid,” Black said. “He’s the king … When he died it was sort of the end of rock.”
Yeah it is absurd, she can sell 25% of the catalog to make $50 million, but can’t let a song be used in a movie? Lame.
Kelly Clarkson won the first American Idol, but she hasn’t always been a winner in the love department. Until now, she announced recently that she’s been in a relationship for the past year.
Single since 2006, the first-ever American Idol winner, 29, revealed to a Toronto radio station March 6 that she’s been off the market since late last year. “I have a new boyfriend!” Clarkson gushed.
Sources tell the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday) the lucky guy is 35-year-old Nashville-based talent manager Brandon Blackstock, the son of Clarkson’s own manager, Narvel Blackstock (and stepson of Reba McEntire).
“Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love,” an insider says of the Grammy winner, who split from singer Graham Colton six years ago. “[Brandon] is just what she needed.”
Awesome – I’m psyched for her. She also will be a host for the upcoming show “Duets” which is yet another rip off of American Idol, X-Factor and The Voice – but it’s probably a fat-paying gig.
Looks like it’s a boy for Jeremy Sisto of “Suburgatory” fame and his wife, Addie Lane.
“Unnamed boy is healthy as is Mom. Thanks for your wishes,” Sisto tweeted on Saturday. “Don’t tell my wife I had two glasses of wine while she had an epidural.”
The new baby boy is little brother to Sisto and Lane’s first child, 2-and-a-half-year-old daughter Charlie-Ballerina, who received a special gift from her new sibling…well, kinda.
“Just bought a teddy bear to give to my daughter ‘from’ her new-born brother,” he tweeted, “considering drizzling some placenta on it for believability.”
Ha – it’s funny to actually picture Jeremy having a kid because about 5 months ago some friends and I ended up hanging with Sisto and his crew at a dive karaoke bar in LA, and he was super awesome, super nice and super wasted! We even sang with him – and now he’s a dad. Congrats!
Things just keep getting stranger in the Houston household. Reports have surfaced that Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is in fact, dating her “adopted brother.” Don’t puke yet though – the two have no blood relation.
A source close to Houston’s daughter tells E! News that the two of them met when they were younger, and Nick was going to enlist in the Army after high school to escape his family problems. According to our source, Bobbi Kristina told Whitney about Nick’s plans and expressed that she didn’t want him to go, so Whitney agreed to take Nick in as her own.
Gordon, who has lived with Houston since he was 12, confirmed their relationship status via Twitter.
He tweeted: ‘Yea we got a little closer and what!!!’ Gordon also posted a picture of himself and Bobbi Brown to his Twitter page on Friday. He asked fans to only follow Bobbi’s official Twitter page and avoid the rumors being spread by others.
He also tweeted, “Good morning everyone. Their lots of fake people pretending to be MY Krissi. The real one is @REALbkBrown. Fakes need to get un followed (sic)”
This has creepsville written all over it. She’s in a really bad place right now and is probably lonely, but that’s no reason to turn to your bro. Literally, your brother.
Turns out Scully wasn’t always into men as you might think – she was a lesbian in high school.
I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school, and then I was in a relationship with a punk rock drug addict who…”
Wait, a lesbian relationship? “Yeah, yeah, well it’s… You know, I’m old enough that I can talk about that,” she says, before resuming her list: “And then I was in a relationship with somebody who was way, way older than me. Everything that that kind of anarchistic attitude brings—the inappropriate behavior it leads to—was how I chose to be in the world at that time, which was, you know, not what people did.”
Much of this has been written before — how she dyed her hair purple, how she glued the school gates shut on graduation night, the drugs and alcohol — but her lesbian romance is something new. Understandably, she is wary of making a big deal of it, precisely because it is a big deal for so many people. “If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me?” she wonders. “Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation? It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”
Umm yeah – it is a big deal.
