Heavy Metal is a broad term and a very broad church: there are umpteen variations on its basic theme and there are sub genres galore. However, the single thread which binds these disparate pieces is a loud, overdriven, distorted guitar wielded with intent. Non fans traditionally are quick to dismiss the music as entirely without merit and at this point I’ll say hello to Jason Isaacs who recently described the peerless Lamb Of God as, “People having some kind of epileptic fit in charge of a guitar.” Of course, the perpetual allure of Heavy Metal is that outsiders, such as Mr Isaacs, just don’t get it and for this reason it remains a consistently popular form of music, constantly shifting its shape to adapt to the times whilst managing to maintain its core appeal of rebellion.
Despite its foremost protagonists being American, heavy metal is essentially a British creation. »

First talking about Justin Timberlake, he quickly compares the two. "Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. It's just him," he says of the "Suit & Tie" singer. "Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. He had a guy holding a slice of pizza. »

Not everyone can be a Belieber. After an incredibly rough month, Justin Bieber continues to receive a serious amount of media criticism for his questionable behavior. From the "worst birthday" ever to late arrivals to canceled concerts to Lindsay Lohan comparisons, the Biebs can't seem catch a break, often taking to social media to defend his eyebrow-raising antics. Jon Bon Jovi recently urged the 19-year-old singer not to disrespect his fans with any more late concerts, saying, "Do it once, you can be forgiven... Do it enough times and shame on you. They won't have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It's really not cool—you're an a--hole." But this »
In an interview with the London Evening Standard, the 51-year-old musician slammed Bieber for showing up two hours late to a concert at the O2 arena in March.
“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new," he told the newspaper of Bieber's tardiness. "They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives — or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives."
The rocker told the U.K. paper that Bieber needs to know that keeping his fans waiting isn't cool, and he can't let it happen again:
“Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. »

Jovi had earlier revealed that the reason behind Sambora's exit was an issue that he had previously dealt with, Contactmusic reported.

Sambora then announced his exit from their tour in Apr and cited "personal issues" as the cause.

Jon Bon Jovi, who has been rocking the stage with his eponymous band for going on 30 years now, has some words of wisdom for young Justin Bieber, who earlier this year left his fans waiting nearly two hours, according to reports from concertgoers.
"They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives -- or in that kid's case, 80 minutes of their lives.
Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won't have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It's really not cool -- you're an a**hole. Go to f***in' work!" Bon Jovi tells the Evening Standard.
The frontman also addressed the recent departure of guitarist Richie Sambora, once again only saying that it's for personal reasons. »
New York — There was a time when most of the songs played on the radio came from Broadway. Now some popular hit makers like Cyndi Lauper and Sting are finding it still feels like home.
"Look, they don't break your balls that much here," Lauper said of the experience of composing "Kinky Boots," her debut musical. "Know what I'm saying? They don't friggin' aggravate you as much."
More and more singer-songwriters from the pop world seem to be hearing that siren song: The trickle of pop and rock stars turning to the stage is fast becoming a flood.
Besides Sting and Lauper, stars such as Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Edie Brickell, David Byrne, Fatboy Slim, Burt Bacharach, Elvis Costello and The Flaming Lips are making musicals.
The reasons are as varied as the different sounds those artists create: Broadway represents a new challenge. Or it offers »

Jon Bon Jovi has a message for Justin Bieber: get your act together, man! In an interview with the London Evening Standard, the New Jersey rocker took the teen heartthrob to task for what he labeled unprofessional behavior—this after he was asked about Bieber turning up two hours late for a March concert at London's O2 Arena and then blaming his tardiness on "technical issues." "Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new," the 51-year-old Bon Jovi told the newspaper during a tour stop in Vienna on the European leg of Bon Jovi's Because We Can tour.

Justin’s ears must be ringing! After being late for two European shows on his ‘Believe’ tour, rocker Jon Bon Jovi has slammed Justin and said he is ‘disrespecting’ his fans, and he may lose them forever if he does not change his ways.
Justin Bieber 19, has been taken down a peg or two by none other than seasoned rocker Jon Bon Jovi! The Bon Jovi frontman thinks Justin has an attitude and has been disrespecting his fans by arriving to shows late, and he says Justin is at risk of losing his Beliebers if he does not take his work more seriously. In fact, Jon even called him an “a**hole!” Is he being way too harsh, or does he have a point?
Justin was nearly two hours late for a London show in March, and last week he was late for a Dubai show on May 13. Jon, »

Keanu Reeves doesn't look like himself these days, but he does resemble another famous face: Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora! The 48-year-old Speed star appeared puffy and out of shape during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 19. Like 53-year-old Sambora (circa June 2009), Reeves' eyes were covered by his shaggy brown hair. In addition to acting, Reeves is also working behind the camera. His directorial debut, The Man of Tai Chi, premiered during the film festival May 20. "About four or five years [...] »
Side Effects Thanks to my visit to Cannes I no longer have to cite Side Effects as the only good movie of 2013 so far. In fact, once Friday rolls around another one of my favorite films of 2013 hits theaters in the form of Before Midnight. However, back to Side Effects, a truly fantastic, smart and intriguing film from Steven Soderbergh. The disc arrived shortly before I had to leave for Cannes so I haven't had a chance to watch it again, but I did see it twice in theaters and will welcome another visit once I get back home.
True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season I started watching this right before I left for Cannes as well and actually took the DVD discs with me to Cannes, hoping I'd have some opportunity to watch at least a couple more episodes. No dice. I really enjoy the "True Blood" series »

Stand Up Guys is the tale of three elderly men having one last night out on the town together. They realize that there’s not much time left, so they figure, why not get the gang back together and relive their glory days? On its own, this might not seem like such an unusual premise, that is, until you factor in that these guys are all former criminals who used to be involved in activities such as robbery and murder. With that in mind, you can begin to imagine just what kind of a night on the town these three would have.

The 'Always' hitmaker - who has children Stephanie, 19, Jesse James, 18, Jacob, 11, and Romeo, nine, with wife Dorothea - insists he is not a 'perfect' husband, but he isn't interested in sleeping with anyone behind his spouse of 24 years' back.

Last night was the finale of The Vampire Diaries — and man, did it deliver. I vaguely remember what it was like before I started watching this show, but now my life is so overrun by drama and intrigue and incredible facial features that it’s basically a nonstop roller coaster from Thursday to Thursday (strategically placed teaser clips, you know?). Last night’s episode was everything I wanted it to be. It had romance, terror, a huge helping of nostalgia, and a final twist to put every past season’s cliff-hanger to shame. I’m gonna get into it below, but here is the most important thing you need to know: Stefan’s beauty has been multiplied, and I’m not just talking about the fact that he’s switched up his hair-care regimen.Stefan Is Going to Love Again Stefan and Lexi dancing to Bon Jovi gets a plus 20.

Some celebrities may be ridiculously rich nowadays, but they weren't always that well-off. Before they won the fame-and-fortune jackpot, many of them made even less money at their entry level jobs than you make at your normal-person job. Observe:
The future Mrs. Theroux was a telemarketer in her heyday, a career that pays an average of $30,000 a year. She also worked for some time as a bike messenger. Couriers make about $27,000 a year.
Pitt dabbled in many odd jobs before becoming the superstar he is today; one of them was limo driver. Chauffeurs make, on average, $30,000 a year.
Before Posh was, well, posh, she was an extra in small television productions in England. Extras make roughly $31,000 a year.
The rap mogul started out folding shirts at Gap. Retail salespeople make about $21,000 a year.
