  • Ugh, why does everything coming out of Billy Corgan's mouth sound so obnoxious, even when it's about something benign like spirituality? "I'm not a humble musician, but I am a humble human being, I have perspective, I have God in my life. [In the band] we talk a lot about spirituality and about why God made us musicians and why we’re here to do what we do. And we have decided in our estimation that God put us here to try new things, and be innovators," the Smashing Pumpkins frontman says. [Observer]

He wants to enlist him in his mission to get appropriate remedies for soldiers of the Iraq War." This Van Tassel fellow does not sound like the most stable person, as he " waved a gun and an American flag on a Highway 101 overpass and stopped traffic for hours in Santa Barbara last month." [AP]
  • Speaking of Tommy, Brooke Shields has apparently fully recovered from their postpartum depression tiff a few years back, and offered Tom many, vaguely undermining congrats on his Golden Globe nomination for his role in Tropic Thunder.
