Reznor flips virtual bird at Grammys
There are some untold stories from Sunday’s Grammy Awards that include Trent Reznor’s rage and Paul McCartney’s ignorance. Firstly, Paul McCartney got a Grammy alongside Dave Grohl, Krist Novocelic, and Pat Smear for their work on the tune “Cut Me Some Slack” from the Sound City Soundtrack. That’s pretty awesome that a former Beatle found himself among a reunion of former Nirvana players. But, McCartney didn’t know that. Appearntly McCartney knew Dave but in the studio, he didn’t know who Krist and Pat were. Meanwhile, depending on what broadcast you watched, the finale of the night featuring Nine Inch Nails’s “Copy of A” into Queens of the Stone Age’s “My God Is The Sun” may have been cut off by ads and show credits. Once NIN front man Trent Reznor found out about that, he fired out a tweet:
Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.
Reznor’s not known to hold back. Several years ago he refused to perform at an awards show for MTV because he wanted to play his tune “Hand That Feeds” with a portrait of then President George W. Bush on a projection. Producer said no, so Reznor said “f**k you.”

Taking a break
Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe is taking a break from the band, and if you went through what he’s been through, you’d probably do the same. The front man for the heavy metal outfit from Virginia was imprisoned overseas in Prague and even was eventually acquitted of manslaughter charges. All that will be revealed in depth with a new documentary set to make the rounds next month. Blythe also has a book coming out this year about the ordeal. But now the front man says on his popular Instagram page he “will not be thinking about Lamb of God, touring, playing heavy metal, or writing new Lamb of God material” for a long time.
You’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat to find out if Courtney Love would be found guilty in her defamation case … well, the verdict is in and … wait for it … wait for it … SHE’S INNOCENT! The deal was whether or not Love defamed her attorney for posting on Twitter that her attorney was bought off. The lawyer turned around and sued for defamation of character. A California jury said Love didn’t defame. This is the first-ever defamation lawsuit brought to trial over a Twitter message.
