SHANE MACGOWAN, JOHNNY DEPP, AND FRIENDS PUT A SPELL ON YOU FOR A REASON

Now HERE’S a charity song you can sink your teeth into. Our insightful colleague Lisa Derrick at The Huffington Post obviously has a thing for Shane MacGowan like we do. She revealed that Shane gathered up some buddies including Johnny Depp, Nick Cave, and Chrissie Hynde, to record a new version of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ classic “I Put a Spell on You” to raise money for Haiti. It’s cool to see Shane and Johnny together again and the song is a lot less sappy than most fundraising songs – give it a listen. (By the way, what happened to Shane’s “new” teeth?)

    Chrissie Hynde’s voice is so fantastic, I just love anything she does. So distintive she stands out from all the rest immediately. It’s funny how there have been so many years of American Idol now and no one has come close to coming out with a voice like heres, or a new k.d.lang. They are so interchangable and bland. Yes, they can sing and carry a tune, but they just are not memorable. Like Simon says, as soon as you’ve heard it, you forget it.

    And what’s up with the toothless guy on this video? I’m sure he can afford teeth, if not, I’m sure Johnny Depp will spring for some choppers for him! YUCK!

    @Reta. grow up!

    If your preference for singers depends on their dentistry, then you’ve missed out on THE POGUES and the poetry Shane MacGowan has given us.

    t know about you, but last time I checked, the Reval was done in.
    The most cost effective option to move your possessions is nearly always by sea especially
    if you’ve got several years worth of belongings. Surprisingly, the Japanese media reported little on reaction towards karate’s rejection.
    Addressing the Austin City Council, Bush highlighted that a
    “long chain of events, policy papers, closed door meetings and international agreements that began long ago” are what has
    resulted in local approval of New World Order control by the ruling
    elite. Then, if the government chooses to go further,
    they would have to come to Guatemala, hire local counsel, and ask for the law firm
    to reveal who the owner is.

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?
