Courtney Love Came For The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame In A Guardian Op-Ed Then Came For The Guardian For “Censoring” Her
If Courtney Love followed the rule “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all” we’d never hear a peep out of her unless it was in defense of Johnny Depp. This week Courtney’s gnashing her teeth at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and popping them on the ass with a rolled-up copy of an op-ed she wrote for The Guardian. But even a wonky clock that’s not only seen some shit, but has probably also smeared some shit, is sometimes right. And Courtney was right to call out the Rock Hall for its miserable lack of female inductees. Even so, if there’s one thing Courtney Love’s gonna do it’s Courtney Hate, so she also made sure to blast The Guardian for censoring her.
Dolly Parton Turned Down Her Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nomination Because She Doesn’t Feel Worthy
Last month, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their seventeen nominees for 2022’s Hall of Fame induction, including Eminem, Lionel Ritchie, Pat Benatar, and Dolly Parton. This was Dolly’s first time being nominated, and, as a legend with a career spanning seven decades, I assumed she’d be a shoo-in. But today Dolly shocked the world when she tweeted that she’s bowing out of the race because she doesn’t feel like she’s earned the right to be inducted. Great, even Dolly fuckin’ Parton has imposter syndrome. Come on, girl-boss, lean in!
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s 2022 Nominees Include Dolly Parton, Eminem, And Lionel Richie
This morning the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their seventeen nominees for 2022’s Hall of Fame induction. The shortlist includes Dolly Parton, Eminem, Lionel Richie, Dionne Warwick, Pat Benatar, Duran Duran, and Kate Bush. Sounds like a fantastic hypothetical dinner party. If anybody got too big for their britches (Simon Le Bon), Dionne would tear them a new asshole. Then she’d order Kate Bush to ease the tension by dancing. And Kate totally would (Babooshka-stylez), because nobody says no to Dionne. Continue reading
Tina Turner Will Finally Be Inducted Into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
Tina Turner is 81 years old and has been performing professionally since she was 17. Lady is a legend. This is why my gob was officially smacked when it was announced Tina would be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. How wasn’t she in there already? They literally call her “the Queen of Rock n’ Roll”! Now, teeechnically she was inducted as one half of Ike & Tina in 1991, but having to share the honor with your abusive ex-husband isn’t the same thing. So it’s about goddamn time.
Open Post: Hosted By Jeremy Renner’s Dreams Of Rock Stardom Coming True
I can’t believe all this fussin’ and cussin’ over Taylor Swift’s masters is going on right now when there’s an entire catalog of Jeremy Renner certified bangers right there for the taking. Everybody’s (I’m not sure exactly how many Avengers there are but I think a conservative estimate would be 27? 28? I’m going to go with 27) 25th favorite Avenger has been quietly laying down alt rock tracks for years, right under our noses. But Jeremey’s not going to be ignored any longer. He’s taken the promotion of his musical endeavors into his own hands and posted a teaser for his dubiously titled new single, Heaven Aint’ Got No Name, on social media.
Stevie Nicks On Her Vault Of Shawls, Her Flip Phone, And Dire Wolf Fantasies
Stevie Nicks, the songstress witch that inspired a million mid-2000s Coachella lewks (seriously, she really missed an opportunity to create a cheap line of shawls and lace-up bodice dresses modeled by Vanessa Hudgens for Target before the festival style switched to oversize 80s neon t-shirts) was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the second time. While there are 22 men who have been given the honor, Stevie is the the first woman to have been selected twice; the first time for being Head Witch in Charge (sorry, Christine McVie) of Fleetwood Mac and this time as a solo artist.
Since 2019 is a take no prisoners grab the dirt bags by the balls kind of year, Stevie is HERE for the honor and gave an interview with Rolling Stone that lets us into some of the nuances of her enchantress magic, and yes, it’s just as good as you would expect from the ethereal feathered hair sorceress that is Stevie Nicks.
