After the devastating news of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger’s forthcoming union, we understand this mashup of their music might be a little too soon to take. Still, it’s my duty to bring the remix to your attention.
Insanity Wolf mashed up their songs “Complicated” vs “Rockstar” vs. “How You Remind Me.” The result is “This Is How You Remind Me That Being a Rock Star is Complicated.” Just rolls of the tongue, doesn’t it?
In all seriousness, we should be happy for the two singers. They’re easy targets to make fun of, but there comes a point when the jokes become mean. The two have found love and that’s more than many of us can say, right? C’mon, through ‘em one and be happy. Just don’t listen to the mashup song twice, because I haven’t tested what the ramifications are yet.
Listen to it here:
Rocker Rick Springfield has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, TMZ reports.
The 80s rockstar, who was arrested last night in Los Angeles, reportedly performed poorly on sobriety tests after being pulled over by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department around 8:00 p.m. for a traffic violation.
The 61-year-old singer was then arrested on suspicion of DUI, after the officers noticed the smell of alcohol. Law enforcement sources say Springfield’s blood alcohol level was measured at 0.10 and 0.08, the legal limit being 0.08 in California.
Springfield was taken to a nearby jail, where he was booked then released on his own recognizance.
Another rockstar, another DUI. It’s not known whether or not he has a drinking problem, but driving under the influence is simply inexcusable. Hopefully this is a good wake up call for him.
After only one week on store shelves, Grand Theft Auto IV has broken all-time entertainment records for day one and week one sales by dollar value by selling through to customers over $500 million in product in one week; approximately 6 million units world wide.
According to Take-Two, Grand Theft Auto IV sold approximately 3.6 million units on its opening day with a retail value of approximately $310 million globally.
“Grand Theft Auto IV’s first week performance represents the largest launch in the history of interactive entertainment, and we believe these retail sales levels surpass any movie or music launch to date,” says Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two.
“Grand Theft Auto IV makes full use of the power of next generation technology, and offers players an experience unique in the interactive entertainment medium. This game sets a new standard in the industry, with critics hailing it as both an artistic and technological masterpiece,” said Ben Feder, Take-Two’s Chief Executive Officer.
Although the Xbox 360 version outsold the PS3 version by 20% in the UK, likely due to upcoming exclusive downloadable content, the real winner is still Take-Two.
Digital distribution is the future of gaming, embracing this future is Rockstar making a collection of its games available for download via Valve’s popular downloading system, Steam.
Titles available for download include the Grand Theft Auto series, the Max Payne series, Midnight Club 2 and Manhunt. Gamers will be able to buy each game individually starting at $10 each, or purchase the entire collection for $60.
All games are 10% off now through January 11th
Looks like when Mark Burnett opens one of his reality shows to Canadians, we show the reality show guru what we are really made of.
“Rock Star Supernova” finally filled its lead singer spot tonight after a summer of competition and Canadian Lukas Rossi walked home with the spot.
Rossi, a native of Toronto, was considered a front runner at the beginning of the competition, and only ended up in the bottom three a couple of times.
“I just want to try something new. The boys in Supernova, they’re looking for a singer, right? They know I can perform. I just gotta showcase my true voice, not be covered up by the band,” Rossi told the Toronto Sun in an interview Sunday night.
Last season, Canadian JD Fortune won the spot to become the new lead singer for INXS.
Rossi was up against three other competitors: Toby Rand from Australia, Magni Asgeirsson from Iceland and Dilana Robichaux – originally from South Africa, but now living in the U.S.
Canada has one more hope for “Rock Star Supernova.”
Vancouver’s Jenny Galt was the latest performer who was booted off the show from Supernova on last night’s episode, leaving Lukas Rossi as Canada’s last representative.
“This sucks. Each week this gets way more difficult. Jenny, you gotta go,” Tommy Lee, who is the drummer for the band, told her.
Galt performed the Incubus hit “Drive,” but received critical comments from the band and host Dave Navarro. Navarro said her song was “too safe.”
Rossi meanwhile has been called an early favourite to win the competition.
