Billie Joe Armstrong came clean when it came to his new interview with Rolling Stone magazine; he was a functioning alcoholic.
The lead singer of Green Day, who will be doing their first show since BJ exited rehab on March 10th, was very straightforward.
“I played onstage loaded a lot. I'd have anywhere from two to six beers and a couple of shots before I went onstage, then go and play the gig and drink for the rest of the evening on the bus.”
“Fall asleep, wake up the next day, feel like s***, do sound-check... it was over and over again. In that way, I was a functioning alcoholic. I've been trying to get sober since 1997, right around Nimrod. But I didn't want to be in any programs. Sometimes, being a drunk, you think you can take on the whole world by yourself. This was the last straw. I had no choices anymore,”
He also talked about his addiction to pills;
“I started combining them to a point where I didn't know what I was taking during the day and what I was taking at night. It was just this routine. My backpack sounded like a giant baby rattle."
The singer wrote a song about Amy Winehouse and did not learn her lesson. We are hoping this time, through his own experiences, he learned his own lessons.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Glad you're better....but don't fall into old habits again BJ.
John Mayer has made many songs with ex-girlfriends as inspiration. Taylor Swift made a song about Mayer entitled "Dear John" and he is not happy about it.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, John says he feels "humiliated" and that it was a "lousy" thing for Swift to do.
"It made me feel terrible."
"Because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."
The song in question is "Dear John" released in 2010 on her "Speak Now" album and while John was taking a hiatus from things.
The lyrics in question are:
"Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong / Don't you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?
John stated "I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call,"
"I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I'd already been dressed down. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?"
When asked about the song's line, "Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?" Mayer says, "I don't want to go into that."
"I will say as a songwriter that I think it's kind of cheap songwriting," he says. "I know she's the biggest thing in the world, and I'm not trying to sink anybody's ship, but I think it's abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, 'Wait till he gets a load of this!' That's bullshit."
We have a feeling John talking about it will make Taylor write another song about him. We wonder if right now she is somewhere grabbing her chest and saying "me? Oh my gosh!" in surprise.
The lyrics and music are posted below. What do you think of the song and John's reactions?-DocFB
Never Shout Never debuted their new video "Time Travel" on AOL Music today.
The CD of the same name came out today and is on sale for $9.99.
Rolling Stone had this to say about the CD:
"Time Travel was produced by the musicians themselves, acting for the first time as a real band. And it shows. What follows is the sound of a fully realized, four-piece unit at their moment of self-discovery."
Never Shout Never is from Joplin, Mo and as you may have heard, the city was wiped out earlier this year by a tornado. The band visited the aftermath of the tornado and you can see the footage HERE.
The band kicks off a nation-wide tour and you can find the dates below:
Here is some behind the scenes footage of Katy Perry's Rolling Stone shoot. Wowza. OK, I officially envy Russell Brand. He can make a craptastic movie like an "Arthur" remake, but he always gives you that look that he is doing things to Katy Perry you only wish you could.
Sigh. Enjoy the behind the scenes footage while I go read the latest Spider-Man graphic novel and cry.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Just A Teenage Dream
Looking a little bit like a Star Wars villain, Eminem is on the cover of the latest Rolling Stone, explaining the road back to hell.
Here is a preview of the Eminem Interview with Rolling Stone:
Do you think it’s hard for you to trust women?
I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me. I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.
What about your love life? Do you date?
Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie—I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.
Yea, for some reason, we just can't see Eminem getting caught by TMZ cameras partying it up. We haven't yet, have we?-Dr.FB
As promised, here is another daily dose of Katy Perry for you.
Like Drake, you can thank me later.-Dr.FB
Who cares that Lady Gaga is in Vanity Fair talking about taking cocaine when you have Katy Perry sexing it up in the pages of Rolling Stone?
Katy Perry would look hotter in our kitchen than Gaga as well.
Nothing does it more for men nowadays is side boob. Even gay guys like it. Not like I would know. My friend told me so and I believe him. Everyone loves breasts and Katy's are quite the pair.
So enjoy the pics of Katy and if you like, we may just post more later. OK. OK. We will def post more later regardless.-Dr.FB
