Blink 182 Leave Interscope

Blink 182 have parted ways with their record label Interscope. When speaking to MTV Mark Hoppus had this to say of the departure – “Yes indeed, we are no longer with Interscope. It’s been a long, amazing journey with them, starting with Cargo records, then MCA, then Geffen and finally Interscope, but the time has come to move on. The reasons for us not working together are many and varied, but mostly we wish them luck in everything in their future, and thank those there who’ve worked so hard on Blink-182 throughout the years. As far as labels, to be honest, we’ve been holding our breath waiting for final word from the attorneys that our contract with Interscope had ended. Now the future’s a wide-open door. We’re lucky to be in a position where, after 20 years in our band, we can be independent and open to all options. It’s a very exciting time here. I feel like our band is in the best place it’s been in a long time. I mean, just look at my hair!”

No Tattoos Welcome at HMV

HMV staff are being forced to comply with their new appearance policy which restricts employees from having visible tattoos. The company have also instilled a clothing policy, female staff must wear denim skirts and male staff must wear denim jeans and good grooming is a necessity. What do you think about this? Should it be allowed or is this a step backwards? Are our right being violated? Is this comparable to a fascist regime? Let us know your thoughts.

Justin Bieber Sued

Justin Bieber has been sued by an American man for allegedly stealing his credit card and purchasing a penis enlargement surgery. The same man has previously accused Usher of sodomising him.
