I don’t want this video to end…in fact if we could tattoo Youtube videos on ourselves, I think I’d go with this.

Foo Fighters Protest: Photos or ‘FOO-TOONS’??

First of all I never thought I’d see the day when the Foo Fighters had to deal with bad press, yet here we are.

Quebec newspaper, Le Soleil decided not to send a photographer to cover the recent Foo Fighters show at The Bell Centre because the Foo photog policy is crap…or as they put it, “exploitative.” Taylor Swift was recently accused of the same thing.

Basically (if I’m understanding it right and bear with me because I’m really bad at contract-ese) the band will give you credit for the photos once. Only once that is IF they approve them. Then the band owns them and if you see one of your photos used later down the line you’ll have to convince your friends you actually took that shot and they’ll just look at you like, “riiiiiiiiight.”

So Le Soleil  said F that noise and sent a cartoonist instead! Avoiding the photo terms/conditions all together.

GENIUS.  I actually love the Foo Toons… not at the expense of photographer’s rights. I’m just saying I love the drawings…EDIT: is that better Matt/Adam?? Is it more clear that just because I think the cartoon idea was super clever and fun to see doesn’t mean I condone The Foo Photo Policy?? 

Now some would say if you don’t like the terms don’t do the show (EDIT: purely playing devil’s advocate Matt/Adam) and I get it but these days everyone is a “pro photog” thanks to Instagram. That’s a hard pill to swallow for the true professionals who actually know what the heck they are doing with a camera….I wonder if that plays into these lame terms or perhaps the Foo Fighters and other artists are really just hypocritical BASTARD PEOPLE in disguise!

Outside of a mid-show menage-a-trois simulation with Katy Perry/John Mayer, a Christmas album with Jon Stewart and/or genuine alien contact, I got nothin.

DonutGate: Uncle Sam Just Deleted His Ariana Grande Playlist.

Dude, Ariana…So not only were you caught on camera at a donut shop saying how much you “hate America,” but you were licking random donuts that people were going to eat?! I’m no germaphobe, but that is gnarly.

I get that you were coerced by a cute boy (I was insecure in my early 20s too),  I appreciated your apology (posted below) and I believe your words were taken out of context. America has a weight problem! I saw that South Park episode and I bet there are plenty of Americans who now wish they could take back all the hours they watched Victorious just to run around the block instead of contributing to your budding stardom.

You would be nothing without American Donut-lovers. 

Yes I recognize the irony in that there are creeps out there that would pay THOUSANDS for a donut licked by you but payback is a bitch honey…you may not eat much but there’s a good chance what you do eat could be licked! Especially if you continue to be as rude as you were to the cashier at Wolfee Donuts :/

Good lick sister.

“I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words. As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rates in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry. However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better. As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show. I hope to make it up to all those fans soon. That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.” – Ariana Grande

Bruno Mars wasn’t the only one crushing at The White House!

Bruno headlined the 4th of July show on The South Lawn for military families singing his songs as well as covers like Michael Jackson’s Rock With You, Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It and Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love…and by the looks of the pic above, there was a whole LOTTA love.

Who could blame her? Betcha Barack and Congress would okay that.

If there was a moment when you thought about giving away your tickets to The Foo Fighters 4th of July show at RFK, I get it. Your friends probably told you security was going to make the trip hell and the weather was pretty crappy…but you decided to persevere…for Dave…FOR THE FOO!

If he could show up with a broken leg, the least you could do was show up to rock with him…and weren’t you glad you did?

break a leg

THIS SHOW WAS CHURCH.

It was a seamless day of incredible acts. Joan Jett, Trombone Shorty, Gary Clark Jr, Heart, LL Cool J, (Yes he did I Need Love), Buddy Guy and Trouble Funk! We even got a crash course on The Foo Docu-Series Sonic Highways

Then the curtain fell and out comes D on a THRONE-MOBILE.

Which was completely appropriate. He has most certainly earned it.

Ps – I don’t like crowd participation, obligatory clapping, etc. Makes me anxious. Yet Saturday night, I participated like an overzealous TGIF Teamleader. I clapped too long, smiled TOO big and I’m so glad I did.
