VIDEO: Lady Gaga Defends Rebecca Black, Says "Friday" is "Genius"

Do you, like millions of others, think YouTube's much-maligned sensation Rebecca Black is the worst singer ever? That her song, "Friday," is beyond cheesy? That she oughta do music lovers the world over a favor and just pack in her dreams of pop stardom now?
Well, Lady Gaga has a message for you: You're full of s--t.

No less an arbiter of all things cool, outré and, let's be honest, totally wacky, has come to the defense of the 13-year-old auto-tune aficionado, addressing the Rebecca Black phenomenon (and her phenomenal public backlash) while chatting to the tech geeks at a "Google Goes Gaga" Q&A session.
So what did Gaga have to say about this young girl's, um, talent?
"I think it's fantastic," she said. "I say Rebecca Black is a genius and anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of s--t."
So there you have it—though the best part of Gaga's response is the stony, defiantly eyebrow-raising "and…?" face she locks into after succinctly delivering her verdict.
In any case, count Simon Cowell among those not full of you-know-what, as the X Factor judge recently spoke out in defense of the teen, calling her song "brilliant" and labeling it "hysterical" that anyone could be so upset about the harmless tune.
In any case, Black wasn't the only hot-button topic Gaga discussed at the Musicians@Google talk Tuesday, as she also lashed out at Malaysia's censoring of lyrics in her hit "Born This Way."
Instead of allowing fans to hear the words "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby," radio stations instead garble those lyrics in the only allowed, edited version of the song. (Broadcasters are forbidden from airing "offensive content," a category which the government claims Gaga's inclusive lyrics fit into. The could be fined up to $16,000 for playing the non-edited version.)
Needless to say, this isn't sitting well with Gaga.
"What I would say is for all the young people in Malaysia that want those words to be played on the radio, it is your job and it is your duty as young people to have your voices heard," she said. "You must do everything that you can if you want to be liberated by your society. You must call, you must not stop, you must protest peaceably."

Gay Marriages On Hold In Calif. During Court Appeal

A federal appeals court on Wednesday refused to allow gay marriages to take place in California while it considers the constitutionality of the state's voter-approved ban.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris had joined gay marriage proponents in urging the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to lift a stay that had been placed on a lower court's ruling to strike down Proposition 8.

Lawyers for two same-sex couples had sought again to lift the stay after the California Supreme Court recently said it would take at least until the end of the year to consider a legal question asked by the appeals court in the case.

They argued that the U.S. District Court ruling overturning the ban should be honored while the appeal, which they believe is unlikely to succeed, slowly make its way through the courts.

"We felt then, as we do now, that it is decidedly unjust and unreasonable to expect California's gay and lesbian couples to put their lives on hold and suffer daily discrimination ... while their U.S. District Court victory comes to its final conclusion," said Chad Griffin, board president of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, in a statement.

However, Proposition 8 supporters said the ban should stay in effect to honor the voters' wishes until the legal questions are settled.

"The voters deserve for their votes to count even while the lawsuit is pending" said Andrew Pugno, general counsel for the Proposition 8 campaign.

"Both sides are well aware that this issue will not be finally decided until it reaches the U.S. Supreme Court, and it helps no one for the law to shift back and forth prior to that time," he said.

In a letter to the court earlier this month, Harris said sponsors of Proposition 8 were unlikely to prevail in their appeal. Keeping it in effect, therefore, was a fruitless violation of gay Californians' civil rights, Harris said.

"The public interest weighs heavily against the government sanctioning such discrimination by permitting it to continue," she wrote.

Once the state's high court makes its decision, the case will resume in the 9th Circuit. Once a decision is rendered there, the case is expected to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Warblers Album Tracklisting And Artwork Revealed!

Get ready, Gleeks! More details regarding Darren Criss and his fellow Dalton Academy Warblers’ very own album have made their way onto the internet—and it's a doozy!
Not only will the 13-track compilation include some of the Warblers’ hit cover tunes featured on the show (Katy Perry’s "Teenage Dream," Destiny’s Child "Bills, Bills, Bills"), but the album also offers some exclusives. Glee: The Music presents The Warblers will round out with two treats: the group’s tribute performance of Barbra Streisand's "What Kind of Fool" from the 2011 MusiCares Person of the Year gala and a never-before-heard cover of Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" Side note: Do we even need to answer that question?

With 10 chart-topping albums under the Fox series' belt, this marks the Warblers' very first album of their own. But this is all to be expected as Criss and company have sold 1.3 million tracks since the Warblers’ debut!
Glee: The Music presents The Warblers won’t hit shelves until April 19, however fans can take a look at the artwork for the all-Warblers LP. Sporting the group’s signature Dalton Academy and Warblers’ logo, the cover for the compilation features a shot of the male a capella group’s perfectly pressed suit and tie.
Take a peep at the Warblers’ album tracklisting below:
1. "Teenage Dream"
2. "Hey Soul Sister"
3. "Bills, Bills, Bills"
4. "Silly Love Songs"
5. "When I Get You Alone"
6. "Animal"
7. "Misery"
8. "Blackbird"
9. "Candles"
10. "Raise Your Glass"
11. "Somewhere Only We Know"

Glee's Chord Overstreet Takes Off His Shirt!

Sexy six-pack alert!
Another hot hunk from Glee is taking it off and showing us his amazing abs and buff biceps!
So who is it? Hint: He doesn't play a teacher (ahemMatthew Morrison's Details cover)...
READ: Which DWTS celeb used to be a beyond-buff bodybuilder?
It's liplicious Chord Overstreet! In a photo from a recent hotel rooftop photo shoot with photographer Christian Rios, the 22-year-old hottie shows off his wet pecs, abs and biceps after taking a dip in a pool.
"He's a natural!" Rios exclusively told us of working with Overstreet. "He's one of the few people I've met who can so easily manage to stay laid back but very focused at the same time. He was open to trying new things and excited to help me put together a great shot. It made my job a whole lot easier."
Wonder what Taylor Swift thinks of Mr. Overstreet's chiseled bod?

Bam Margera Calls A Girl Fat, Get's K.O.'d at SXSW

"Jackass" star Bam Margera was knocked out cold after getting into a fight on the 11th floor of a Texas hotel last week  ... TMZ has learned.

Bam Margera Fight

Bam tells TMZ ... he was at the SXSW festival late Thursday night, walking through a crowd of a bunch of drunks, "when someone said something rude to me, so I began making fun of a big girl in the group."  Bam said, "I called her a sea otter and asked her why she's in Texas.  She should be in Alaska laying on an iceberg because she's a beached whale."


Bam says the woman's friend punched him in the face and the two began fighting.  Bam fell  to the ground and the woman then delivered the knockout blow.   Bam was out for 7 minutes.

Bam says his face was "covered in blood" and he has a black eye.  On top of that, he lost his $500 bracelet.

What’s the best way to close out SXSW — a festival that prides itself on edge and unconventionality? Give Taylor Momsen the stage!
Taylor took the stage with her band The Pretty Reckless to perform at Perez Hilton’s ‘One Night in Austin’ party, and even by normal Momsen standards, the Gossip Girl starlet outdid herself when it comes to wardrobe choice. Clad on an almost-skin-colored dress, thigh-high stockings, clear stilettos and a mini leather jacket, Momsen worked the stage like a seasoned rocker — even if she’s only 17. According to one fan report, however, things got a bit R-rated, as one Express-News writer reports:
“One partygoer left in a fury after Momsen, looking something like the Corpse Bride on her wedding night, got a female fan to strip off her shirt and dance onstage. Not an atypical heavy-metal moment — but did I mention that Taylor is 17?”
Seventeen or not, Momsen has built up quite a fanbase thanks to her television and music work — enough to make her a co-host candidate for Simon Cowell as he fleshes out his roster for The X Factor. Celebuzz exclusively reported this weekend that Momsen was in consideration for the gig because she’s “young, hip and edgy” and has just the energy the show is looking for.

"Curing" gay people? There's an app for that!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Exodus International, the notorious "ex-gay" organization, has just released an iPhone app that, according to its website, is "designed to be a useful resource for men, women, parents, students, and ministry leaders." The Exodus website further boasts that its app received a 4+ rating from Apple, meaning that it contains "no objectionable content."

No objectionable content? We beg to differ. Exodus' message is hateful and bigoted. They claim to offer "freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ" and use scare tactics, misinformation, stereotypes and distortions of LGBT life to recruit clients. They endorse the use of so-called "reparative therapy" to "change" the sexual orientation of their clients, despite the fact that this form of "therapy" has been rejected by every major professional medical organization including the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association, and the American Counseling Association. But reparative therapy isn't just bad medicine -- it's also very damaging to the self-esteem and mental health of its victims.

This new iPhone app is the latest move in Exodus' dangerous new strategy of targeting youth. In light of the recent wave of LGBT youth suicides, this tactic is particularly galling as it creates, legitimizes, and fuels the ostracism of LGBT youth by their families. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, LGBT teens who experienced negative feedback from their family were 8 times more likely to have attempted suicide, 6 times as vulnerable to severe depression, and 3 times more likely to use drugs (Caitlin Ryan, San Francisco State University, June 2009).

Apple doesn't allow racist or anti-Semitic apps in its app store, yet it gives the green light to an app targeting vulnerable LGBT youth with the message that their sexual orientation is a "sin that will make your heart sick" and a "counterfeit." This is a double standard that has the potential for devastating consequences.

Apple needs to be told, loud and clear, that this is unacceptable. Stand with Truth Wins Out -- demand that the iTunes store stop supporting homophobia and remove the Exodus app.

'Glee' Confirms Santana Is a Closeted Lesbian


"Glee" is not a pool for gay boys only, but also a gay girl who is not yet ready to come out of the closet. At the Paley Center for Media's Paleyfest, creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan have confirmed that sexy salsa Santana is a lesbian and she may take a new level of relationship with fellow former Cheerio, Brittany.

"Santana is now out, internally," Murphy told "Whether she's dating somebody or not, we don't know. But we think we've made a big step in giving the world that character. Whether her and Brittany will work out we don't know." Falchuk who initiated the storyline added, "(Lesbian visibility) was our intention. We want to make sure everybody is included. Santana is a lesbian. She might not be ready to come out yet, but she is."

Falchuck was confident in going on with Santana-Brittany scenario since fans' response has been favorable. "I heard some stories of people coming out after that episode and it was very moving," he noted. Naya Rivera who plays Santana also feels the same love. She said, "I hear every day on Twitter things that warm my heart. There was one girl who said she'd contemplated suicide. Other people have said they'd had the courage to come out after the episode. I hope I handled it responsibly. I'm more than honored."

The other "Glee" cast were happy to jot in their opinions about Santana's sexuality. Chris Colfer who plays openly-gay Kurt said, "They're both very bitchy characters so I feel like they could bond. Maybe Kurt could teach her to be a little bit nicer, and a little bit more out." Meanwhile, Jane Lynch who plays the mean Sue thought, "I love that it looks like Santana is gay, it's lovely. It's nice to have a gay girl because we have such nice gay boys."

Nicki Minaj might be a judge on 'The X Factor'

R&B sensation Nicki Minaj is in talks with Simon Cowell to be a judge on his upcoming Fox talent show "The X Factor," Page Six has learned.
The Queens-bred star, famous for her wild and outlandish outfits and impossibly curvy figure, met with Cowell in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. A source told us, "Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She's sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality.
"Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. 'X Factor' is aiming for a younger audience. Those aged 12 and over can audition, and [the English version has] launched successful artists from other genres of music than pop.

"This isn't a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great for the show. She fits the ideal that 'X Factor' will be exciting, vibrant and different. And the show would also be great for her career."
Former Island Def Jam Music Group chairman L.A. Reid -- who launched major acts including Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, the Killers, Bon Jovi, Pink, Usher, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna -- was last night confirmed as one of the stars on the much-speculated-about judging panel.
Other names being considered to join Cowell on the panel include Tommy Mottola, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and British pop star Cheryl Cole. Sources said Cowell is still deciding on the right mix of judges, and Minaj, who's now touring with Lil Wayne, could be a good complement to the more experienced Reid and Mottola.
Auditions for the show, which starts on Fox in the fall, will begin on March 27 in LA. Solo artists age 12 and over and vocal groups will battle for a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. A rep for Cowell and "The X Factor" wouldn't comment on Minaj, saying it was "early speculation." Minaj's reps didn't get back to us.

Exclusive: Taylor Momsen to Co-Host Simon Cowell’s ‘X Factor’?

Is Taylor Momsen headed for Simon Cowell’s much-anticipated new show X Factor? Sources connected to the show tell Celebuzz yes!
Celebuzz has learned producers for the show have zeroed in on the 17-year-old Pretty Reckless singer, and want her to take a stab at co-hosting the show. Earlier this week, uber-producer L.A. Reid officially signed on the dotted line to sit at the judge’s table.
We’re told that producers think the often-controversial Momsen is perfect for the spot because she’s “young, hip and edgy” and has just the energy the show is looking for.
Cowell left behind his successful American Idol franchise behind last season to produce a US version of the televised singing competition. The show, already a hit in the UK, has produced such stars as Leona Lewis. The show’s winner will receive the ultimate prize — a $5 million recording contract. Auditions start in Los Angeles March 27.
Will Taylor make a good judge?


Exclusive: Voices Behind ‘Glee’ Warblers Talk Rebecca Black’s ‘Masterpiece’ & More!

Bubs Sing "Teenage Dream"!
The a cappella group busts out the hit song. Watch »
Since the introduction of the Dalton Academy Warblers this season on Glee, people have not been able to stop talking about their catchy covers and smooth voices. Not only have they been a hit on the show, they’ve smashed records too, as their version of “Teenage Dream” set the Glee record for single day sales, garnering a seriously impressive 55,000 downloads.
But who are the voices behind the blue and red jackets? They’re the Tufts University Beelzebubs!The Bubs is an all male a cappella group that consist of 12 guys whose history with the university dates back to 1963. While Glee has helped shine a spotlight on them, they were also part of NBC’s hit show The Sing-Off prior to their most recent gig.

Celebuzz caught up with three of the members — president Eli Seidman, business manager Evan Powell and historian Kent McCannto chat about everything from how being in an a cappella group helps them with the ladies, similarities between the Warblers and themselves, and yes, even a possible collaboration with current internet fascination, Rebecca Black.
Were you guys fans of the Glee before being involved with it?
Evan Powell: I think some of the guys were, I actually hadn’t seen it since our first time.
Eli Seidman: There were some guys who were huge fans of it, who kind of freaked out then they heard that some talk was going on about it. I personally hadn’t watched it much until the first episode that we were on. We all just got together to watch it and it was a group of 11 dudes watching Glee, which I don’t think is their target demographic. The rest of the guys who were around just thought we were really weird because it’s twelve college-aged guys sitting and watching Glee. But it’s fun, we like it — it’s a fun show, it’s great for families. We have really young kids up to adults who just say that they really like the show and the Warblers, so it’s a great thing to be part of.
So have you had time to catch up on the first season in the meantime?
ES: I haven’t, but I think some of the guys have.
EP: Yeah until homework lets up, I don’t think we’re going to get a chance to backpedal and watch it, but we’ve been filled in. I’d like to think we know most of it.
Kent McCann: My mom went out and bought all the DVD box sets. When I go home for summer break, I’ll have something to keep me busy?
ES: Who needs an internship?
Are your meetings as intense as the Warblers’?
ES: [Laughs] Not nearly, at all. They put us to shame, they always looks really spiffy and everything seems to be made from really solid oak wherever they are. I wish you could see where we are right now because the room has been in our possession for awhile, I guess that’s the best way to put it.
KM: We look like hoarders basically.
ES: Yeah it is not very pretty.
So, it’s not glamorous?
ES: Not in the slightest. It’s like what you would expect a room to be if 12 college dudes lived in it for like 20 years.
EP: It is what it is, but we call it home and we love it.
ES: I think they’re maybe a little more rigid than we are, we try to have a little more fun than at least they do on TV. All I’ve seen them with is the gavels and the judging and all that stuff. We’re all about chilling and having fun.
KM: Good times.
EP: And we do not have a pet bird, unfortunately. We have a strict policy against them.
ES: Although we occasionally have mice in here.
EP: They are adorable.
ES: One thing that’s somewhat similar is, although they may be more intense than us, is that we are a pretty old group, we’ve been around for 48 years and we def have an appreciation for the guys who were in the group before us. In the room, we have plaques with the names of everyone whose been in the group, as well as lots of meetings with our alumni, we see them on a regular basis, the guy who started the group has us over for dinner and you def see [with the Warblers] stuff like “We haven’t sung outside since 1928 when they got a plane crashed into them!” we sometimes bring up things that the group has done before, but we’re not so rigid about it. I’d say that’s the biggest similarity between the groups is the appreciation for history.
EP: Also, we’re really good looking like them.
That’s one thing we were going to ask: Do you guys just get a ton of ladies? Do you just go up to them and serenade them and they swoon over you?
ES: Definitely not [Laughs]. We’re an a cappella group through and through. That’s the funny thing about watching the show, they sound so good and they’re just so suave. I think that the cinematography really flatters them and it’s just not what real life is like. I mean I will say that it doesn’t hurt, being able to sing is always a good thing, for the ladies, for men, for whatever you’re into, because like Glee, we’re very supportive of whatever people are in to. I would say it doesn’t hurt but the image of the “rock star” is not in a cappella. If you’re looking for that, pick up an instrument. Grow your hair out, get some tattoos.
So you didn’t get into it for the ladies?
ES: No [laughs]
KM: I did not join an all male a cappella group for the ladies. [Laughs]
EP: It’s like, “Oh yeah I’m going to spend 8 hours a week with dudes, aw, the chicks are going to love that.”
ES: No, it was not our intent.
Do you all have musical backgrounds? How did you get into the Beelzebubs?
EP: It really varies person to person, like I know Eli here didn’t really do anything that musical before coming to college. He just had a low voice and decided to come to an audition and got in. I didn’t personally sing until senior year of high school, I was always in band and was a band geek and I figured I would branch out a little bit when I got to college.
KM: Outed!
ES: Yeah, it definitely depends. It’s not required, but being musical helps, but you don’t need to be a singer per se, and especially the way we do solo auditions and that kind of stuff, any one can get a solo for any song, but not everyone is a soloist, so we don’t pick guys who necessarily have the best voices, it’s more about personality and blend and a lot of other factors that go into the acapella process that oyu might not think about were you not so involved in it I guess. So you know, we’re not recruiting divas or like the spotlight stealers, per se, all time.
What are some of your favorite Glee numbers?
KM: Anything by the Warblers is pretty good. [Laughs]
Aside from that!
ES: You mean the not Warblers stuff?
Yeah, do you listen to any Glee music besides your own?
KM: [Laughs] You called us out!
ES: I really liked the Rocky Horror episode. It got totally panned by critics but I thought it was really entertaining and that’s always been something I’ve enjoyed.
EP: I thought the original song at the end of this last episode was actually pretty darn catchy. I can see why it’s at the top of iTunes right now. It’s pretty good.
On the note of original music, do you guys ever write music or anything like that?
EP: We try to avoid it mostly for two reasons, one is that we are not nearly musical enough and no one would like what we came up with probably [laughs] and also to be honest, a cappella is kind of like a more glorified cover band and so people come to shows to hear songs that they know.
KM: And to see us wave our arms around. [Laughs]
EP: Yeah and see us wear our ties and stuff like that, so I think just knowing our audience I think they’re just there for the fun of it, which we are obviously too and I think sometimes we take ourselves seriously, but overall we try not to take ourselves too seriously. So the short answer I guess is no, but I guess if someone came to us and had really good song writing abilities, we definitely wouldn’t say no to it.
KM: I would no, we have to thumb wrestle over it.
The Beelzebubs peform “Sweet Caroline” on The Sing-Off!

Who are some of your musical inspirations? Are you into all different kinds of music?
ES: Being in the Bubs has definitely diversified my taste in music a whole lot because we sing all different genres, it helps to listen to those different genres, so I personally say my musical taste is all over the place. From rap to dance music to even country music recently, I don’t know why.
EP: It’s on the record now!
ES: The taste of everyone in the group as a whole, I feel like there’s no genre that isn’t representing to some extent. Except for Irish music.
ES: Or noise. Pirate metal.
On that note, we have to ask, what do you think of Rebecca Black?
All: [Laughs] Yes!
EP: Do you have her contact info?
ES: Oh my God, yes please, hook us up with her.
I haven’t seen any a cappella covers of it yet. There’s screamo, dubstep, everything but a cappella.
EP: The problem is, it’s hard to touch perfection. [Laughs]
ES: We could never do that song justice.
EP: Everything about it, it’s like fine art, it should be hung in a museum.
ES: The pronunciation of “Friday”
Fried Egg?
ES: Yeah, Fried egg! And after that comes Saturday and after that is Sunday.
EP: I will hereby go on record saying that that is just a masterpiece. I don’t know what thought process went through her head, well that’s mean I shouldn’t say that.
KM: It’s catchy, that’s what I hate about it!
EP: The rhyme scheme is too good.
ES: I keep singing it even though I don’t want to. I’m sure that song is playing on the way to hell, just blasting. [Laughs]
We still think you guys should consider doing a cover.
EP: That’s actually pretty genius.
ES: We’d all probably fight over the solo.
EP: If you talk to her, tell her we’re her number one fans.
ES: And if she wants to collaborate on anything just give us a call.
Don’t you think she’s too big a star now?
KM: I feel kind of bad for her, she’s famous because she sucks.
ES: Yeah but she’s made it.
EP: She’s a William Hung.
We’ll see how long it lasts.
EP: Yeah I feel like if her next single comes out and it’s good we’ll all be disappointed. [Laughs]
Good old Rebecca Black.
EP: If we do a cover, we’ll credit you, definitely!
Sweet! Obviously, you guys are in college so how do you balance recording music for Glee, and midterms and a social life and all everything else?
KM: Not well.
ES: We’re all pretty anti-social but it worked out with Glee because we were able to record at a studio that was within walking distance from campus. So we would go to the session in between our classes and still manage to have a sort of regular school day, which was nice. And there was free food there so that was nice.
Cooking — one less thing you have to worry about!
KM: I wouldn’t even record anything, I would just sit on the nice couches and eat food. That’s my contribution to Glee.
ES: In general [the Bubs] pride ourselves on being efficient, so we use our time together to the best of our ability for the most part. So we’ll rehearse about seven hours a week, which sounds like a lot, but it adds up to having one more class if you look at it that way. There’s a lot of times to get homework done, hang out with friends, and we tend to have some really busy weekends and others we don’t really have anything going on, and I will avoid everyone in the Bubs at all costs. Really savor my time outside the group as well. So it works out pretty well.
EP: I work best when my plate is pretty loaded up, and when we were doing Glee that was just the coolest part of it. If I had any free time during the day, I would just pop into the studio, chill with some guys do a little homework, then come back to school. It’s a really fun balance, such a cool opportunity. Even on the days when it was a little too much, just the novelty of it was like, “Wow, what I’m about to record is going to be on national TV.” It just floors you.
Thanks for talking with us, we’re so excited for your Glee CD to come out next month, and we’ll be waiting for your Rebecca Black cover!
EP: We’re releasing our own CD in the fall, so maybe that can be a bonus track.
ES: We’ll keep you posted, and have a great — “Friday, Friday!”
If you want even more Beezlebubs, you can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter!


Ex-Social Distortion Drummer OD'd in Front of Son

Lesson of the day: don't do drugs and then overdose in front of your kid because you just might end up in jail.

That's what happened anyway to Casey Royer.

The former drummer for SoCal punk band Social Distortion was charged today with one count of child endangerment and one count of being under the influence of heroin after OD'ing on the drug in front of his 12-year-old son while the two watched TV at home last week.

The medical emergency prompted the younger Royer to get help from neighbors who called an ambulance as well as police. Lucky for him, the 52-year-old rocker was taken to a nearby hospital in time and doctors managed to revive him.

Unfortunately, however, Royer was arrested a short time later and now faces some serious charges which could see his son taken away from his care.

An Orange County, Calif., Sheriff's spokesman confirmed to E! News hat when officers arrived, they found drug paraphernalia, including needles.

Royer launched his career in 1979 at age 21, keeping the beat for Social Distortion, the headbanging O.C. punk outfit fronted by Mike Ness. He left the group a year later and played with the Adolescents as well as fronting his own band, D.I.

Royer remains behind bars in lieu of $120,000 bail.

Baltimore: John will be returning to Atomic Books on May 14 to sign copies of this new, paperback edition!

Saturday, May 14.
7:00PM. Atomic Books.
Hampden, Baltlimore.

From the cult film director, an irreverent look at the figures who shaped his life.

John Waters' ROLE MODELS is a self-portrait told through intimate literary profiles of the author's favorite personalities - some famous, some unknown, some criminal, some surprisingly middle-of-the-road.

From Miss Esther, owner of the scariest bar in Baltimore, to the outsider photographer Bobby Garcia; from the atheist leader Madalyn Murray O'Hair to the late, great playwright Tennessee Williams; from the English novelist Denton Welch to the singer Johnny Mathis - these are the extreme figures who helped the author form his own brand of neurotic happiness.

These shining examples of fetishistic idolatry will inspire readers to their own devious hero worship and appreciation of the power of subversive inspiration.

FILTER is giving away a pair of tickets to see the following shows:

3/15 Tapes 'n Tapes @ Detroit Bar
3/19 Devo @ Club Nokia
3/19 Girl Talk, Max Tundra, & Junk Culture @ Fox Theatre

AUDIO: Paula Abdul Dials 911 to Escape Boyfriend's Car

Paula Abdul made a frantic and tearful 911 call during a Valentine's Day drive with a boyfriend -- repeatedly screaming, "Drop me off!" ... and TMZ has obtained the recording.

During the call -- placed at 4:35 PM on Valentine's Day -- Paula cries and sobs hysterically and says, "I wanna go, and he won't let me!"

Seconds later Paula says, "Are you gonna drop me off 'cause I have emergency on the phone" -- and shortly after that she says, "He's dropping me off."

Officers got in touch with Paula about an hour later and she said it was just a verbal dispute.

We're told Paula and the guy were driving near Santa Barbara when the epic argument erupted. Cops went to her house that night and found she was fine. Paula did not want to file a police report.

A spokesperson for Abdul tells TMZ, "Arguments with loved ones are often times heated. After the call was made everything was worked out."

PHOTO: The Christina Aguilera Mug Shot the Cops Didn't Want You to See

Does Christina Aguilera look publicly intoxicated to you?

The spiraling pop diva was arrested on suspicion of that very charge early this morning, and here is the photographic evidence of the bust, exclusively obtained by E! News.

L.A. Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said that Aguilera's picture is not going to be released to the public because authorities do not plan to press charges...but sometimes a camera is just in the right place at the right time.

While this certainly won't go down in the annals of scary mug-shot history, it's definitely not one of Aguilera's better looks.

In her defense, Whitmore said earlier today that the "Beautiful" singer was "cooperative" and "not belligerent in any way whatsoever" when she was taken into custody along with boyfriend Matthew Rutler.
