Twitter Garbage talk
She looks innocent, but Shirley Manson will rip into you
The front woman of Garbage, Shirley Manson, got into a public battle with fans on Twitter after she criticized German concert goers. After performing a sold out show in Koln, Germany, Monday, Manson Tweeted “you were so strangely subdued! Sold out show but so cold? Funny. I know you love us but why couldn't you show it? We still love you.” That sparked some angry reactions from some Twitter users asking why she would criticize fans for buying tickets and then complaining that they weren’t loud enough at the show. Manson responded harshly telling critics to … well, get lost is a nice way to say it. You can check out her Twitter page for the dirty details.
Pizza and home improvement
The Black Key settled their copyright dispute with Pizza Hut and The Home Depot. The band claimed that the stores used their songs in commercials without their consent. They say “Lonely Boy” was used to push power tools while “Gold on the Ceiling” was used to hawk pizza. Both stores denied copying the songs for the commercials. So who came out on top? It’s hard telling. No details about the settlements were included in the Los Angeles court filings. I wonder if they got some free power tools and pizza in the deal!?!
Digitized rock stars
