Limp Bizkit just recorded a cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s 1984 hit “Relax”. It’ll be on the soundtrack for the new Ben Stiller film “Zoolander.” We’re betting Freddy has no idea just how gay Frankie goes to Hollywood was/is. Or maybe he does.

Talk to an International Icon by calling 973 402 4028

Hype band of the week, The Strokes played LA last night to a sold out house at the Troubadour.

At the MTV 20th Anniversary Party, The Outlawz, Tupac Shakur’s group that he put together before his murder in 1996, and P. Diddy almost came to blows during Puffy’s rehearsal. Supposedly, the trouble started on Wednesday when The Outlawz crashed the rehearsal for a tribute to Shakur and Biggie Smalls. While Puffy and others were doing their thing, The Outlawz began, “messing around and talking shit”. Puffy ignored the troublemakers until one of the Outlawz snatched the mike from his hand. Suprisingly Puffy didn’t back down, and a huge brawl almost took place as security ended up ejecting the Outlawz.
