Ten former American Idol contestants are suing the show (for 25 million dollars) for the allegedly racist policies set in place by its producers.
The group claims they were unjustly kicked off the show because of their race, accusing producers of orchestrating a “cruel and inhumane” scheme to juice ratings by allegedly digging up their criminal histories after they were accepted on the show in order to embarrass them in TV segments. According to their lawyer, James H. Freeman, they were treated unfairly by the producers. Freeman also says their arrest histories were obtained illegally, and the practice was used to find dirt only on black singers. None of the contestants, Freeman says,...

Design the Skyline have broken up.
My heart is heavy as a dawn sets towards a new sunrise. 4 years ago my band Design The Skyline formed from the passion of 7 individuals with the goal of creating a unique open-minded experience in a world bound by normalities. While the goal was ultimately reached and many loving, dedicated fans rose and stand by us, we have decided to part ways and begin a new chapter in our music careers.

"Thank you to all the fans who supported us, fought with us and will continue to do so! I have endless love and appreciation for you! I will never forget all the messages from everyone saying I saved lives, opened eyes, inspired, and helped push through the...

TMZ shot footage of Scantlin leaving the police station Wednesday night. On the way out, Scantlin defended himself, "My neighbor vandalized my house so I had to take action." He also mentioned the sledgehammer ... but was mum on the buzz saw.

Kid Dynamite will be breaking up after a farewell European tour next year.
It was 2010 when we were first invited to play This Is Hardcore in Philly. It was our first show in nearly 5 years, since playing CBs. We’ve always gotten offers to reunite for a show or two, but nothing ever really panned out. It seemed like all of us were interested in possibly hitting the stage a few more times. Why not? Right? Over the past 3 years we’ve had the pleasure of playing some pretty exciting shows; a warm welcome in California, a magically dusty weekend in Austin, a unexpected romp in Gainesville, a beautifully nostalgic show at the Church in Philly and most recently our first trip to Europe. We...
