Criticizing Singing Competition Shows, Vedder Responds, and Manson Screenshot

Criticizing singing competition shows


Well, somebody had to say it! And, by golly, it just had to be Dave Grohl! Really, he just adds to the chorus of criticism over TV singing competition shows. The Foo Fighters front man said the popular prime-time programs are “not what music’s about”. As he is in the throws of a documentary series on HBO about Foo Fighters’ new album, he’s addressing his concerns of how TV misrepresents music. He also says the competitions provide a false sense of what it takes to be a musician. At a press even for TV Critics Association Grohl said he doesn’t want his daughter to think you need to stand in a line to get some celebrity judge’s approval. Grohl and Foo Fighters are the focus of a forthcoming HBO series called “Sonic Highway” about the band recording their new album in various studios around the country.


Vedder responds


Eddie Vedder is defending his onstage anti-war rant from earlier this month. Vedder took to a stage in England during a Pearl Jam concert to says if war is the last resort, he gets it, but says there are people out there determined to take land that doesn’t belong to them and kill innocent people in the process. The veiled comments seemed to hinted at the conflict between Israel and Palestinians. After being criticized for the comments, Vedder took to a blog titled “Imagine That – I’m Still Anti-War”. Vedder says with a dozen assorted ongoing conflicts in the news everyday, and the horror behind them, it becomes unbearable. He also quoted John Lennon’s "Imagine" throughout the post.


Manson screenshot


Ever wonder what Marilyn Manson looks like in a prison get up? Well, you can check out his Twitter page where he posted a screenshot from a prison scene from the upcoming season of “Sons of Anarchy”. Manson plays the role of Ron Tully, a white supremacist prison shot caller. The Twitter post says “Tough acting like you want to kill your favorite character”.
