18 Songs Written About Other Musicians

davegrohl 082811 m jpg
On Sunday night, chillwave band the Wavves got a big push from MTV when they were name dropped about a zillion times during the network’s new series, “I Just Want My Pants Back.” (I keep referring to this series as “Oops, I Crapped My Pants” because I’m bitter that they are filming it on my block and mucking up the neighborhood.) The band used all the free press to drop the first single off their new record, “I Want to Meet Dave Grohl,” a nod to singer Nathan Williams’ obsession with Dave Grohl, of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame. Both Williams and Grohl were at this year’s VMAs, so it’s possible that there was actually a song-fulfilling meeting last night. But either way, Wavves’ “Grohl” track is just one of dozens of songs in which bands sing about other musicians. Click through for a smattering of other great–and really not so great–odes to fellow musical artists.

Hundreds Of Workers Fall Sick At H&M Factory

Around 300 workers fell sick at an H&M factory in Kompong Chhnang, Cambodia, last week, reportedly while making shirts for the Swedish retailer. Workers allegedly smelled something bad coming from the shirts, and began fainting. After the incident, the plant sent its 4,000 workers home to rest and closed for the remainder of the week. But that hasn’t stopped local authorities from blaming the incident on the “weak” workers, though fair labor advocates believe that it’s more likely the cause of poor ventilation, exposure to chemicals and exhaustion.

This isn’t the first sweatshop-related fainting incident. Labor organizations say there have been more than a thousand reported occurrences of fainting in the past year. Even when chemicals aren’t the root cause, long hours, exhaustion and malnutrition are often to blame. H&M says they are investigating the incident with help from the U.N. International Labor Organization, but had “not found any plausible causes so far.” [Reuters] Keep reading »

Quiz: Real Or Fake Super Sexy Sensual Erotic Courtney Stodden Tweet?

Courtney Stodden
I like to think that my Twitter followers are generally amused or enlightened by the 140 characters missives I fire of 5-20 times a day, depending on how funny/lonely I’m feeling. But upon reading the Twitter feed of Courtney Stodden, the now 17-year-old wife (yesterday was her birthday!) of 51-year-old “actor” Doug Hutchison, it is clear I need to step up my game. My tweets are nowhere near as erotic and sensuous, nor filled with as many teasingly placed winky emoticons. For example, just yesterday, Courtney tweeted:

While I lie beneath this sizzling-sun, the popsicle that I am sweetly sucking on begins to melt & drips irresistibly all over my moist body!

See what I mean? Amazing. To rejuvenate my own purple prose, I decided to practice by creating this highly entertaining and, to use another of Courtney’s favorite 50 cent SAT words, invigorating quiz. As you click through this slideshow, you’ll be presented with tweets that were either written by Courtney herself, or by me trying to channel my inner Courtney. Can you tell the difference? The answer for each will be revealed on the slide that follows. Let me know how you did — and write your own Courtney-inspired tweets — in the comments!

Puerto Rican Senator Maybe Caught On Grindr

It’s been a month or two since we had a good political sex scandal. But you didn’t think those politicos had cleaned up their act or learned what a terrible idea it is to text/email flirt and/or take sexy photos of yourself, did you? Of course not! The latest scandalize involves Roberto Arango, a conservative politician in Puerto Rico. He has resigned from his territory’s Senate after some images that look an awful lot like him appeared on Grindr, the notorious gay cruising app. One of the images shows a man sans shirt, wearing a necklace that Arango has been photographed with. Another would make Anthony Weiner blush. It shows a man naked and on all fours, taken in a mirror from behind. Arango has not said the images are of him, but he has stepped down from his post with this oddly Weinerian sorta-denial: Keep reading »
