Korn's Fieldy Pens Shocking Tell-All Book

Korn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu has penned a shocking tell-all book about his addictions to alcohol, drugs, sex and even eating.

The book, titled Got the Life: My Journey of Addiction, Faith, Recovery and Korn, includes apology letters to each band member and stories of the worst times in the musician's life.

Fieldy admits to mistreating women, trying to to kill people, and even eating out of trash cans while consumed with his addiction to food.

The rocker also credits Christ for leading him to sobriety, similarly to the case of bandmate Brian "Head" Welch.

"I may get more criticism today in putting this book out than I have," says Head. "But I'm ready to take the criticism and answer anybody's questions."

Aerosmith Hit the Studio

It's been nearly a decade since we've heard new music from Aerosmith, but all of that is about to change!!

Guitarist Brad Whitford is just as stoked as us. 

"So far it's going great," Whitford says. "Everybody is pretty excited about the amount of new music and the quality of it. We'll have a true-to-the-spirit of Aerosmith record on our hands. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long."

Hopefully not!!

Pussycat Dolls Perform "Jai Ho" Live for the First Time

The Pussycat Dolls, ever the entrepreneurs, have remade Slumdog Millionaire's Grammy-winning song "Jai Ho" and have started to play it live at their concerts!

Check out a glimpse of their first-ever performance of the jam last night, while opening for Britney Spears at New York's Nassau Coliseum.

Britney's Circus Storms New York

"What's up New York?" Britney Spears casually asked, as some 17,000 fans shrilled in reply during Wednesday night's concert at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.

Solemnly descending from the ceiling in twin gold hoops, Spears looked better than ever: blonde, fit, confident, and wearing possibly the coolest jacket since Michael Jackson's "Thriller" (pictured above).

Spears stormed through dozens of hits, including a stripper pole-induced "Radar," hot pink-themed "If You Seek Amy," and Slumdog Millionaire costume-inspired "Me Against the Music." 

Also engaging were Spears' America's Best Dance Crew-style backup dancers, who teamed up with professional circus performers to do tricks, like sawing Spears in half and making her disappear out of thin air!

Plenty of Spears' numbers bordered on sex show, we must forewarn. A Marilyn Manson Dominatrix-esque video prefaced performances of "Freak Show" and "Get Naked," and Britney's wardrobe at points consisted of a nude sparking leotard with black nipple tassles.

The Circus is a truly an act not to be missed. 

Just make sure you're a PG-13ager!

Idol Eliminates Jasmine Murray, Jorge Nunez; Announces New Judges' Veto

It was a bittersweet night on American Idol Wednesday, as America said goodbye to hopefuls Jasmine Murray and Jorge Nunez, but got to watch killer performances by Kanye West and Kelly Clarkson.

Other excitement came when the judges announced a new rule: a one-time veto by the judges that will "save" one contestant after they are voted off by viewers. The decision will be unanimous by the panel, and two singers will be eliminated the following week.

The judges are really taking charge this season!

Between the new "Judges' Save" and the Top 13, they're really taking the show into their own hands!

"He was someone out there who is respected. He's the real deal. You know how everyone has their one magical moment in hearing something they love?"
