Beyonce recently posted an excerpt from Rebecca Solnit's A Field Guide to Getting Lost on her Tumblr. "The world is blue at its edges and in its depths," the passage reads. "This blue is the light that got lost." The Atlantic Wire speculates that Solnit's prose might be the inspiration for baby Blue Ivy's name: "If A Field Guide happens to be sitting on Beyoncé and Jay-Z's bookshelf, you have to give them some credit: it's deep. And after the song Jay-Z wrote about his daughter, which contains the lyric, 'You're my child of a child from Destiny's Child,' we could use a little depth." Ooooooo, TASTY BURN. [Atlantic Wire]

It's official: Josh Duhamel wants to make a Ferg-baby. The pair's beloved dog Meatloaf died a few weeks ago. "Asked if they were looking to replace Meatloaf, Duhamel said, 'I think we're going to focus on our human baby first. Hopefully we'll have kids and then at some point we'll get another dog.'" Please please please please please name your first human baby Meatloaf Ferg-hamel!!! I will give you one million dollars (if you will just let me borrow one million dollars for a second). [E!]

Denise Richards and Richie Sambora have broken up again, and, like most things, it might be all Charlie Sheen's fault. "'Sambora apparently doesn't like Richards' close relationship with her former husband. He's even asked her to stop having contact with Sheen,' the source said, adding: 'They have two children together. How can she not be in touch with him?'" I don't know!!! I just don't fucking know!!! WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? [E!]

Billy Corgan pitched a biiiiiiig fucking fit about how Radiohead gets more respect than he does, when all they did to deserve it was be a way more relevant, groundbreaking band and make music that actual adults want to listen to. "I'm not pissing on Rainbow. I'm not pissing on Deep Purple. But I'll piss on fucking Radiohead, because of all this pomposity. This value system that says Jonny Greenwood is more valuable than Ritchie Blackmore. Not in the world I grew up in. So I find myself defending things. Is Ritchie Blackmore a better guitar player than me and Jonny Greenwood? Yes. Have we all made contributions? Yes. I'm not attacking that. I'm attacking the pomposity that says this is more valuable than that. I'm sick of that. I'm so fucking sick of it, and nobody seems to tire of it." Pro tip: If you're a man who literally looks like a giant baby, maybe take it easy with the public temper tantrums. [ONTD]

I think Corgan's just bitter, having finally realized that decades of absurd drama isn't respected as much as your band keeping its shit together and being consistently productive.
