Weird Music News

Some of it is weird, some of it is gross, and some of it is just sad. Either way, inquiring minds wanna know, right?

Some time tonight in, a painting by rocker Pete 'messed-up' Doherty and the late Amy Winehouse, is to go on sale at auction.  The painting is titled “Ladylike,” and is supposed to be an artistic depiction of Doherty’s one-time band The Libertines, alongside a small self-portrait of Amy Winehouse painted with her own blood (ew).
Wanna see? 

Let's take a closer look, shall we? Here's Amy's bloody self portrait. 

The auction starts tonight at London’s Cob Gallery, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The painting is expected to fetch around $129,000 smackers. 

 Hey! Remember that band called Limp Bizkit?!?!?! Yeah, most people just wanna forget about them, but uh-uh, Fred Durst will not have that. He will not have that at all. 
The band has just revealed the name of their NEW album (can you believe it?!?!). It's gonna be called... wait for it..... wait for it.....
'Stampede Of The Disco Elephants'. I know you're sitting on the edge of your seat right now, and I don't blame you. Ok, ok, sarcasm aside, Fred is pretty pumped about the album and says that you can expect some 'some crazy Limp Bizkit shit' (I believe the shit part)... I keed, I keed. Oh! And just a heads up, rumour has it that good ol' Fred has given drummer John Otto and DJ Lethal the kick to the curb. 
Just Plain Weird
Tom 'Couch-Hopping' Cruise has a brand new moving coming out called 'Rock Of Ages'. It's based on the broadway musical (wait a minute. Does this mean there's singing throughout most of the movie? Ugh..) with Tom playing 80's rocker Stacee Jaxx. The movie also stars Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin. 
It's trailer time.

Recently, music producer Adam Anders has been going on and on about how "amazing" and "powerful" Tom's voice is. Is it possible the Tom Cruise is a triple threat? An actor, a singer AND a Scientologist? I don't believe it!
Don't ask me how, but I managed to track down a small sample of Tom Cruise actually doing some of his vocal exercises. Are you ready for this???
Rock of Ages hits theaters on June 1st.
