SAY GOODBYE TO THE POGUES

122278PCN_Shane01cut

For some reason we’ve always had a weakness for The Pogues, and Shane MacGowan in particular. There’s something so melancholy and romantic about those Irish punk tunes like Dirty Old Town. We saw his last performance in Los Angeles a few years ago and now he says he’s retiring. The Pogues performed at Hyde Park to a cheering UK crowd this week but Shane wants to give it up. His battles with the bottle are legendary, and he was described as “pasty, slurring, and holding onto the microphone for dear life” at the show this week. Shane says this will probably be the band’s last appearance – “I’m 56 now and I want to start working out in the gym every day.”

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
