Dealing with the case of his and Scott Stapp's sex tape they made with several strippers, Kid Rock directly claimed that the former Creed member has been the one who is responsible for the incident because of losing the video, firing back Stapp's previous statement that it was stolen. "He's the idiot because it's out," said the 35-year-old singer. "I'm holding him responsible."

Apart from the speculation whether it was true that the tape had been stolen, Rock surely could relax for a while as a temporary court order preventing Red Light District from distributing or promoting the video has been issued, giving him an initial triumph on the case for sure.

Springsteen to Release Album Honoring Seeger

March 03, 2006 06:43:26 GMT

The interesting side of being a music artist is that one can express his respect to another through the musical work he develops and that's exactly what Bruce Springsteen has done this time through his upcoming album, "We Shall Overcome The Seeger Sessions", in his honor to Pete Seeger. Scheduled to touch the market on April 25 under Columbia Records, this latest effort not only uses the folk music legend's name as its partial title, but also will feature Springsteen's interpretations of 13 traditional folk songs that have long been associated with Seeger, such as "Jessie James", "Shenandoah", and particularly "We Shall Overcome."

"Making this album was creatively liberating because I have a love of all those different roots sounds," so Springsteen has commented. "They can conjure up a world with just a few notes and a few words." Following the release plan, Columbia has revealed the singer's intention for a short U.S. and European tour with the dates to be later announced.

Cuesta Set to Bring "Shiver" on Cinema

March 03, 2006 02:00:09 GMT

After evoking dramatic moments in "L.I.E.", director Michael Cuesta now prepares to provide high tension onscreen as he has given his approval to helm a Dimension Films' project "Shiver", a horror thriller inspired by true events of a group of New Year's Eve revelers who stumbled upon a house of a widowed doctor obsessed with torture.

"What I like about 'Shiver' and the horror genre is that when it's done honestly, with serious intent, it can tap into the social fears and anxieties of our time," Cuesta commented. "I find that exploring the grotesque, the abhorrent and what disturbs us, is a chance to convey some universal truths about us and our society."
