In an increasingly strange day of news posts, Buzzfeed has some images of a grown man who has 15 Miley Cyrus tattoos on his body. They range from a simple "Miley Cyrus" on his chest to a horrible portrait on his arm to her signature on his hands. A couple of the better images are in the replies.

In what will certainly be our most Canadian news of the entire day, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback recently opened up about his collaboration with Avril Lavigne.
From the ArticleKroeger and the band are currently working with Avril on a new record, which he says is up to eight songs. He says Avril has “a lot of tricks in her arsenal” ranging from straight-up rock to more “rhythmic”-oriented genres, and that he was impressed by her creative energy and range of talents. He was also impressed with her ability to hang, saying “she can pound the vodka, for a girl of her stature.”

When asked what exactly he’s doing with Avril, Kroeger said, “We were just gonna couple of tunes. And then she...

An anonymous tumblr page has posted a variety of photos, and stories, about Jonny Craig. The page states that Jonny has been kicked out of Dance Gavin Dance and is still heavily involved in drugs. Be warned: the pictures are probably not something you'd want on your work computer. As this breaks, a bunch of information, much of it quite disturbing, will probably start to pour out. We would like to urge everyone to try and have a little compassion, as this is going to get quite rough. Our thoughts are with all involved.

Retarded children.” And perhaps sensing that the blogs might pick up on this, maybe using a headline such as “Soundgarden wishes Kanye West would keep his ‘retarded’ music down,” Cornell rushed to explain that he meant “’Retarded’ as in held back.

Apparently, a former student threatened to shoot up a college radio station for not playing Rufio after multiple requests.
Quote from ArticleAccording to The Enterprise, "…[radio station] WBIM received multiple calls from a man requesting a song they didn’t have, said program director and junior Thomas Hanley. When the man called back, he threatened to 'come in with a gun and shoot up the place,' according to Eva Gaffney, a spokeswoman for the university." Although the caller, 24-year-old former WBIM DJ Alex Finnegan, claims that his threats were "a joke," he was arrested on Tuesday and "charged with making a threat with serious public harm, a felony, and making a threat to commit...

Michael Shea also known as "MIKL" of BrokeNCYDE has responded in an interview about the fight against Corey Muro (Punchline) that occurred a few nights ago. I hope everyone enjoys the irony.
From The InterviewMuro stood there and said, “I've been playing music way longer than any of you!”, “You're not real musician!” and “Quit music. Remember Punchline!” He just kept yelling. We've dealt with this since we've started, so we're used to it. But when they started to disrespect a girl and us as people, it changed everything.
