Blink 182 Back Together

Band member of Blink-182 announced at Sunday night’s Grammys that the band is back together. Read about it below and see photos and a video of their announcement.

Blink-182

Blink-182 hasn’t put out an album since their 2003 blink-182 and they haven’t been together since they took a hiatus in February 2005. Tom DeLonge went on from there to form Angels & Airwaves. Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker went on to form +44. Then, in September 2008, Barker was almost killed in a plane crash. After that, the three original band members started talking again.

At the 2009 Grammys, the three musicians announced Blink 182 is back together.

Emerging to sounds of their 1999 hit “What’s My Age Again,” bassist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker — wearing a sling on his injured left arm — and estranged guitarist Tom DeLonge walked out together, with Hoppus joking, “Isn’t it great to see the Jonas Brothers and Stevie Wonder back together again?” after the unlikely pairing performed a medley of the Bros’ “Burning Up” and Wonder’s “Superstition.” Barker added, “We used to play music together, and we decided we’re going to play music together again,” as DeLonge stood awkwardly to the side. Hoppus also yelled, “Blink-182 is back!”

After the Grammys, they released a statement:

“Hi. We’re blink-182. This past week there’ve been a lot of questions about the current status of the band, and we wanted you to hear it straight from us. To put it simply, We’re back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy.”

The band leave things with the words “Summer 2009. Thanks and get ready…”

Rihanna Chris Brown

In the early morning hours of Sunday morning, February 8, 2009, police were called to the scene of a vehicle in which a man and woman had gotten into an argument that resulted in Chris Brown assault on the woman. When police arrived, they were told the man was Chris Brown and that he had fled the scene of the incident. The woman told police they had started arguing and it had turned violent. The police reported that the woman had visible injuries. The police put out a warrant to arrest Brown for domestic violence.

Police would not identify the woman, although there is speculation and some evidence that Rihanna was the visibly injured woman.

By evening, Chris Brown had turned himself in, been booked, posted $50,000 bail and been released. He is charged with one count of criminal threats. We don’t have the Chris Brown mugshot yet. Here is a video of his arrest.

Both Brown and Rihanna were scheduled to perform at the 2009 Grammys and both canceled their appearances at the last minute. Both were also up for Grammys. Rihanna was nominated in three categories including Best Dance Recording for ‘Disturbia’. Brown received two nominations, including Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for ‘Take You Down.’

Justin Timberlake and Al Green stepped in to replace the fighting lovers. They did a duet, ‘Let’s Stay Together’.

The incident happened shortly after the Grammy party show featured in the video below.

Kanye West SNL Love Lockdown Video

Kanye West was less than a hit with his attempt to sing more than rap during his latest SNL appearance. He sang Love Lockdown, read about it and see photos and the video of his performance here.

Kanye West

So what did you think of Kanye West’s appearance on Saturday Night Live the other night? He did what others before him have attempted to do, he tried to change his genre in front of a huge television audience. It was less than successful.

West didn’t seem to feel the same way as his critics about his vocals. He posted the video on his blog and his supporters say that the Love Lockdown performance was ‘hands down the greatest ‘SNL’ performance of all time’.

People were so outraged to think that the magnificent Kanye West would put in such a really, really, bad performance, that accusations he was lip-synching rather than it was really him singing live. I fail to see how that makes people feel better about the whole thing. Would you really rather think that he lip-synched a bad performance than that he actually had trouble singing live? Or that he should stick with rap rather than singing? I mean, that would mean that he chose that performance over his own voice.

The video of Kanye West performing Love Lockdown on SNL is below the fold. What do you think about it?
