Liam Gallagher Still Hates Oasis — New, Angry Interview

If you’ve ever heard of Oasis, then you’re likely familiar with the venomous hatred between the Gallagher brothers. Liam Gallagher fronted the band, which included his brother, Noel Gallagher, along with four other members who fortunately survived Liam Gallagher’s very public anger issues. The Gallagher brothers have long been splashed across tabloids for their sibling acrimony, which ultimately escalated into a pre-concert fist-fight, forcing Noel to finally quit the band for good.  Liam Gallagher subsequently formed a new band that includes everyone from Oasis except his brother Noel.  The band is called Beady Eye, and when asked about Oasis in a new interview for MTV Hive, LIam did not disappoint.  Please take the time to read excerpts from the interview below.  At the very least, it will make you feel really great about your relationships with your siblings.

The future of Oasis: “Get over it. Oasis is yesterday. It’s fucking done.”

Ryan Adam’s version of Wonderwall: “It’s shit to me, man. I like Ryan Adams and I like some of his songs. But I hated what he did with “Wonderwall. It’s not his fault. To be quite honest, I’ve never really cared for the original either.”

On why you won’t hear Oasis songs on the Beady Eye tour: “We could’ve if we wanted, but we’ve got a lot more fucking self-respect. It’s why we don’t fucking play somebody else’s fucking songs when we can make our own.

Keith Richard and Mick Jagger working together (despite reported tension)- “Yeah, and what have they fucking done for the last twenty-five fucking years?”

Howard Stern Hates Piers Morgan

After listening to Howard Stern’s initial recap of his Piers Morgan interview, it was clear to me that Stern hated him.  If you’re Stern fan, then you’re familiar with his love/hate tactic of bashing.  When Stern’s unsure about whether to verbally annihilate someone, he’ll say things like, “Piers won’t survive; Piers doesn’t get it; the interview was sort of boring.”  He’ll then follow that up with a very kind and fake, “but he’s a really nice guy and I like him a lot.”  As I predicted, Stern is slowly unleashing a full-on Piers Morgan tirade, which you can hear below.  Stern is pissed that Piers Morgan offered him a once a month spot on his new CNN show, as if Howard Stern needs some kind of help with his career.  He suggested that Piers should have instead begged Stern to appear on his show again, because any Stern appearance is actually a huge favor to Piers.  It’s official — Piers Morgan made the dreaded Howard Stern shit list.

Are John Cusack and Jeremy Piven Still Friends?

say anything

The Jeremy Piven/John Cusack love affair began when they were children.  They both grew up in Evanston, Illinois, and started acting together in the Piven Theatre Workshop, which was founded by Piven’s parents.  When Cusack got famous, he always put Piven in his films, including Grosse Point Blank and Say Anything.  So when did things take a turn for the worse?  According to Piven, Cusack became Jealous when Piven’s career took off.  When asked about Cusack, Piven said “No comment.  I mean, you could fill in the blank, I bet.  It just says so much about a person if he has space for other people’s success.  I have always been so proud of my friends’ success.”  Cusack denied any jealously saying “It’s quite the contrary. I am very happy for Jeremy. I wish him the best and I always have.”  So what’s the truth?  Judging from the quotes I imagine that Piven thinks Cusack’s jealous, and Cusack thinks Piven’s fame turned him into a douche.  Further Reading: John Cusack Proves that Celebrities Need to Get off Twitter.

Megan Fox v. Michael Bay: The Quote Showdown – A Timeline

In honor of Megan Fox’s departure from Transformers 3, I have listed all of the quotes from both Michael Bay and Megan Fox, to illustrate just how much these two hated each other.  Grab your popcorn and start reading!

Megan Fox on ‘Transformers’ in General – Entertainment Weekly Interview (June 2009):

“The humans are secondary to the robots because it’s a movie about robots… People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting. And once you realize that, it becomes almost fun because you can be in the moment and go, ‘All right, I know that when he calls Action! I’m either going to be running or screaming, or both.'”

Michael Bay Responds to Megan Fox’s Entertainment Weekly Interview – Wall Street Journal Interview (June 2009)

“Well, that’s Megan Fox for you. She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do. You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, “Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it.” But I 100% disagree with her. Nick Cage wasn’t a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in “Armageddon.” Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a big movie star before he did “Transformers”—and then he exploded. Not to mention Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, from “Bad Boys.” Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in “Transformers.” I like to think that I’ve had some luck in building actors’ careers with my films.”

Megan Fox on what it’s like to work for Michael Bay – Wonderland Magazine interview (September 2009):

“God, I really wish I could go loose on this one. He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him. He’s vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he’s a tyrant. Shia and I almost die when we make a Transformers movie. He has you do some really insane things that insurance would never let you do.”

Michael Bay’s Crew Responds to Megan Fox’s “Hitler” Comments – His Website (September 2009)

“When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes we’ve had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it’s very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) — easily another 45 minutes in the chair!”

Michael Bay Takes Down His Crew’s Nasty Letter and Posts a New Comment (September 2009):

“I don’t condone the crew letter to Megan. And I don’t condone Megan’s outlandish quotes. But her crazy quips are part of her crazy charm. The fact of the matter I still love working with her, and I know we still get along. I even expect more crazy quotes from her on Transformers 3.”

Michael Bay’s Letter to Megan Fox When he Announced the Date for Transformers 3 (October 2009):

“P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you”

Michael Bay Insists he Likes Megan Fox – Interview With USA Today (November 2009):

“I love her,” the man responsible for the blockbuster franchise told USA TODAY’s Andrea Mandell. “It’s just, she’s young. Everyone’s got to give her a break, she only…23? It’s just hard. I’ve traveled around the world with her and she’s just like this world symbol now, you know?”   So he brushes her diatribes under the carpet? “Absolutely,” he said. “She called me (after the Hitler comment) and goes, ‘It’s all bullsh—t, Mike.’ The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. But she’s always wanted to do these crazy comments. That’s just her. She’s great.”  He also said, “She’s got a great part in Transformers 3,” and he said he’s currently working on the script. So Bay’s not planning on getting revenge by, say, killing her off? “No, no. no,” he said, dismissing it. “She gets enough of that already.”

Megan Fox on Michael Bay making her tan- Allure magazine interview (May 2010):

“I had been tanning a lot so that Michael would be happy with my skin tone. Every spare moment of sun that was outside, I had to be in it,” the 24-year-old actress lamented in Allure magazine. “It’s not going to happen again because of the damage and the possible skin cancer.”

Deadline Hollywood Reports that Megan Fox Got the Axe (yesterday):

Nikki Finke reports: “I’ve just learned that Paramount won’t be picking up Megan Fox’s option on Transformers 3 — and that it was “ultimately” director Michael Bay’s decision.”

Megan Fox Insists She Quit Transformers and Wasn’t Fired:

“It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”

Christina Aguilera on Lady Gaga: "I like her – I Really, Really Promise I Do"

Christina Aguilera has once again found herself in the midst of a Lady Gaga scandal.  She took to her website to refute what she deems an imaginary “feud.”  First of all, I enjoy Aguilera’s doe-eyed innocence in this matter. She’s like a little baby bird that was dragged into a giant mess and has no idea how she got there. Should we forget all about the nasty comments that Aguilera made about Gaga in the past?  She once said, “I’m not quite sure who this person is, to be honest. I don’t know if it is a man or a woman.” She perpetuated the feud recently when she referred to Gaga as a “newcomer” to OUT magazine (which is why she was forced to apologize on her website).  I think Aguilera can’t take the heat of the press, and the anger forces her to get nasty.  She once referred to Britney Spears as a “lost little girl.”  Here’s my message to Aguilera’s PR team: if you are going to apologize – actually apologize.  Don’t blame the media and the public for this feud.  You made some disgusting comments and now it’s time to own up.  Read her “apology” below.

Here’s her quote:

I would like to take a moment to clarify something that has been brought to my attention this morning. It is very easy for comments to be taken out of context and create unnecessary drama-especially between us women. So I would like to tell you all directly so my words can not be misconstrued to sell someone else’s story…I have absolutely nothing against Lady Gaga or any other female artist in this business. I think she is great, and I appreciate any woman fearless enough to go against the norm. She has earned her success with hard work and a clear focus and I have nothing but respect for that.  There is room for all of us on everyone’s iPods.This is not the first time I have been unfairly pitted against another female artist but it will be the last time I comment on the matter.
“Can’t hold us down….”

With love,

C/X

Donald Trump is Still Talking About Rosie O’Donnell

Did Rosie O’Donnell kill his first born child and we don’t know about it?  When asked about Rosie’s return to television, Trump called her a “loser,” and a “failure.”  This feud all began when Rosie mocked Trump on ‘The View.’  While it’s true that Rosie started it, I’m not sure that Trump needs to keep it going.  I speculate that something happened between them prior to Rosie insulting him on ‘The View,’ and it was never made public.  That’s the only thing I can think of that would merit this level of animosity.  Otherwise, he might need to attend some serious therapy.  Watch Rosie throwing the alleged first punch below.  

Jan Brady Doesn’t Appreciate Marcia Calling her a Lesbian

A ‘Brady Bunch’ reunion was planned on a morning show Wednesday, and it was nixed because Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb don’t get along.  The problems started when McCormick released her auto-biography, and she hinted at a lesbian relationship with Plumb.  Plumb felt it was a desperate ploy to sell books and did not appreciate it.  According to Radaronline, they never really liked each other.  Regarding the feud, Susan Olsen/’Cindy’ said, “I love them both and this means whenever we get together for any project there will only be one or the other.”
