    Charlie Sheen Burns Axl Rose at Slash's Walk of Fame Induction

    Charlie Sheen may have a documented soft spot in his heart for Guns N' Roses, but that didn't stop him from becoming the latest mouthpiece to bash Axl Rose. Sheen grabbed an opportunity to poke fun at the sole remaining original member of GN'R at his longtime friend Slash's Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony yesterday, where he helped induct the ex-GNR guitarist, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "It’s quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on," Sheen crowed at the opening of the ceremony, which also featured performances by Slash and Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy, who sings on Slash's latest solo record, Apocalyptic Love.

    Lady Gaga's Social Network Is Open to the Public

    In May, Lady Gaga's crew must've become aware that her insanely large Twitter following was about to equal 5.2 percent of Facebook's entire user base, because that month, almost exactly 30 days before Gaga hit 26 million followers, they announced the launch of Little Monsters, a Pinterest-meets-Reddit social networking site for only the most dedicated Gaga fans.

    Janis Joplin Biopic Has a Star, Director, Rights to Use Music

    On the heels of buzz around Andre 3000's Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side comes news that the long-in-the-works Janis Joplin biopic has finally secured a director, a leading lady, and some serious publishing support. According to Deadline, Joplin will be played by Tony-winning stage actress Nina Arianda, making her on-screen debut in a starring role; she won the Best Actress nod last month for her theatrical part in Venus in Fur, but has also played supporting parts in films like Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris (as Carol) and the surprisingly well-liked Tower Heist (as Miss Iovenko).

    Green Day Will Explore 'Lifestyles of Rock'n'Roll' in Pair of Documentaries

    Green Day have given fans many blink-and-you'll-miss'em YouTube album teasers over the past few months, but they've been busy filming far meatier pieces, too. The band will release two documentaries to coincide with their forthcoming trilogy of albums. Billboard reports that filmmakers Tim Lynch and Tim Wheeler (the former of whom helped produce the band's 2005 concert video Bullet in a Bible and the latter of whom co-produced and edited the White Stripes' 2009 documentary Under the Great White Northern Lights) will produce both films, the first of which will focus on the making of ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tre! (which drop on September 25, November 13, and January 15 respectively, via Reprise), while the second will consist of "vintage footage from their pre-Dookie days" — a punk-rock response to Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D, if you will.

    Big Boi Claims Andre 3000 Thwarted His Frank Ocean Collabo

    While the entire music-loving world had its collective finger hovering above the mouse button to download a digital copy of Frank Ocean's channel ORANGE last night just before he took the stage on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, there was at least one person feeling a little resentful of the rising singer's moment. Big Boi logged on to Twitter just as the record hit the iTunes store to proclaim that the only reason he, too, wasn't featured on one of the record's 17 tracks like his OutKast-mate André 3000 (who drops a breathtaking verse on "Pink Matter") was because, more or less, what Stacks says, goes.

    Van Halen Dispel Super Bowl Rumor While Lobbying for Halftime Gig in Open Letter

    Super Bowl XLVII may be a whole seven months away, but music and sports fans alike can always go for a good halftime show rumor — especially one with a good sense of humor. This year's first whisper was that the tired dudes of Van Halen would be playing the headlining spot on the floor of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3, 2013. Sadly, however, frontman/mouthpiece David Lee Roth sent an open letter over to their fan site (Rolling Stone) earlier today to officially quash the rumor while practically begging NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to give them the gig: An Open Letter I’m compelled to address the now-rampant rumors that Van Halen is playing the Superbowl. First of all let me say this — be still my pigskin heart.

    The White Stripes Release First-Ever 1997 Shows on Vinyl

    In what seems to be an attempt to prove to heartbroken fans that he really is sad about having to end the White Stripes, Jack White and Third Man Records have announced that the next batch of goodies its Vault subscribers will receive includes a 12" recording of the Stripes' first-ever live show. Yes, that would be the set performed and recorded at Detroit's now-closed Gold Dollar club on August 14, 1997, exactly 15 years ago next month. Consequence of Sound reports that Vault Package #13 will include the 12" white (obviously) vinyl recording of the Detroit duo's first live show, in addition to a 7-inch (also obviously) red vinyl recording from an even earlier performance at an open mic, also held at the Gold Dollar on July 14, 1997, exactly a month before the official debut show.

    Beyonce's Dad Teases Destiny's Child Fans With Prospect of Unheard Songs

    Beyoncé's father and ex-manager Mathew Knowles has decided to rile up Destiny's Child fans in a new interview with the Huffington Post, in which he claims that there's some unreleased material from the girl group that launched his very successful daughter's career on the horizon. "In November, we’re putting out two Destiny’s Child catalog records with new material," he casually mentioned in a conversation about his now 20-year-old label, Music World Entertainment, finding a way to discuss the group he managed until their split in 2005. He added that a reunion tour "in the next five years… would be incredible," though it won't happen, due to planning challenges, for at least a year. Or maybe ever, considering that the comments about Destiny's Child are coming a little over a year after Beyoncé fired her father as her manager.

    MTV O Music Awards Honor Courtney Love Fight, Bone Pugz

    The third iteration of MTV's stunt-focused O Music Awards in under two years went down yesterday. Over the whopping (totally live-streamed, with three cameras) 24 hours it took to get through the ceremony, which celebrated "the best of the Web" and took place on the tour bus that toted the Flaming Lips around the country on their Jay-Z-beating, Guinness record-breaking mini-tour, 23 main awards were doled out, including one which will probably be the only thing Frances Bean Cobain and her "biological mother" Courtney Love will ever share again, for Most Intense Social Spat, and one for Best Artist/Digital Entrepreneur, La Sera/Vivian Girls' "Kickball" Katy Goodman.
