The Entertation Index: March 18

March 18, 2013

Grohl, Dave — The world’s favorite drummer gave a long speech at Austin’s SXSW in which he took a jab at Pitchfork and praised “Gagnam Style” as one of his favorite songs of the past decade. Grohl also quipped that as far as band names go, Foo Fighters is “the stupidest f**king name.” “Not so fast,” said Limp Bizkit, Hootie and the Blowfish and Chumbawumba said in unison.

Lauer, Matt — Sources believe that Matt Lauer, front man of the quickly sinking Today Show on on NBC, is being considered to replace longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek in the next few years. “Tell Alex if he needs to talk to anyone about sudden unemployment at the hands of Matt Lauer, I’m here for him,” Anne Curry reportedly quipped to Trebek’s people.

Axl Rose, on the other hand, has been hit in the mouth by many breakfast pastries.

Rose, Axl –– An Australian Guns n’ Roses fan is suing lead singer Axl Rose after he was struck in the mouth by a corless microphone flung into the crowd by Rose at a Perth Concert last Saturday night. The man claims that he “thought he had been punched,” “had no idea what was going on,” and suddenly “felt bits of teeth in his mouth.” Consequently, these are almost precisely the same repercussions from listening to the band’s dreadful 2008 album Chinese Democracy.

Sheen, Charlie — After his daughter was believed to be bullied at her school, tiger-blooded Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen may have tweeted last week a message in which he not only suggested his fans throw rotten eggs and dog feces at his daughter’s school, but revealed the name of the school and the name of his daughter’s bully. To be fair, however, feces-throwing how Sheen handles all things which cause unpleasantness in his life — to which a 74 year-old Calabasas DMV employee, a malfunctioning vending machine at a Bakersfield Hampton Inn and the character of Scar in Disney’s The Lion King can all attest.

Watson, Emma — Known hacker group Anonymous has hinted that it has seen documents from a German film studio which purport Emma Watson — formerly Hermione Granger of the Harry Potter films — to have landed the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Anonymous also claims to have seen the first Digital Marketing New Jersey taglines for the film’s teaser trailer, which reportedly opens with “This summer…adult males, prepare to feel really, really skeevy.”

    Pretty soon Axl Rose will be playing at the Flying J Truck Stop. Those bathrooms are bad enough, I’d hate to see them afte an Axl Rose performance.
