Dave Grohl Will Give Keynote Speech at SXSW 2013
Dave Grohl is taking a little break from Foo Fighters, and is occupying every second of his ‘free time’. He’s helping out with the Queens of the Stone Age album, he’s wrapping up his Sound City documentary, and now he’s agreed to give the keynote speech at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas on March 14 (via Spinner). I’m hoping he shotguns beers and tells everyone what he really thinks of them, especially that Courtney Love chick.
Today’s Fake News: Snoop Dogg to Invest in Celtic FC?
Snoop Dogg, huge Lakers basketball fan and part time Anaheim Ducks hockey fan, is apparently wanting to expand into a new area of fandom – soccer. At least he’s guaranteed to have this called a better career move than that awful Hot Pockets commercial. It is rumoured that Snoop Dogg is willing to dole out the cash to buy shared in Scottish mega club, Celtic FC (via NME).
Speaking about the venture, Snoop said “I’ve got a lot of interest in soccer. It’s not a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in sports teams but it is a new thing for hip hop stars to invest in soccer teams. I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team and I could see myself making an investment if any of the board wanted to sell.”
Snoop also has dreams about bring his boy David Beckham to the club in the future. Pretty sure Becks would get egged in Scotland. Let’s be honest, Snoop was attracted by the green in Celtic’s jersey, since it reminded him of pot. Can you say ‘hot boxed VIP suites’?
Man Arrested for iPad Mini Heist
The word heist isn’t used enough these days – more thefts should be called heists, as it sounds more epic. Remember the great iPad Mini Heist of 2012? A man has been arrested in relation to the heist because he is a moron. The FBI arrested Renel Rene Richardson, who previously asked his co-workers about the ship and WHERE TO GET A FORKLIFT (via Crave). No Google, no talking to different people NOT at work, just 100% stupidity. The only thing that could’ve made it worse would’ve been putting it in his Facebook status update.
Listen! Rihanna – Diamonds remix featuring Kanye West
Rihanna has a new album, and a new single which is sort of average. However, Kanye West applies his magic and lyrical word play to make a listenable remix of new track, Diamonds. Who doesn’t like a verse that pays tribute to the Fresh Prince theme song?
