The 30-year-old singer, who rarely ever talks about her private life, opened up to Zap2It that her current boyfriend Brandon Blackstock is "ruining [her] creativity" when it came to songwriting! But it isn't a lack of inspiration that's plaguing the "Duets" star. Clarkson said, "I'm trying to write a tough song and I can't; it's coming out all butterflies and rainbows. It's killing me."Read More »from Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About Boyfriend “Ruining” Her Creativity, But Toning Her Bod!

[Photo: Courtesy of Lady Gaga]Who can forget the piece of prime cut couture that Lady Gaga unveiled at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards? Well, turns out the concept hasn't been put out to pasture just yet. Lady Gaga tweeted a photo of herself, taken by infamous fashion photographer Terry Richardson, performing in a similarly themed, but shorter and tighter meat dress at her Born This Way Ball show on May 10 in Tokyo, Japan. To garnish it off, the superstar performed her song "Americano" while flanked by pretty fake-looking, albeit shudder-inducing animal carcasses.Read More »from Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress Comeback In Tokyo!

Tom Gabel, popular punk rocker and lead of the band Against Me!, has announced plans to live as a woman.
Gabel, 31, grew up with gender dysmorphia, a condition in which one feels trapped in the wrong gender's body.
Gabel, who is considering gender reassignment surgery, has started taking female hormones and has undergone electrolysis.
"I'm going to have embarrassing moments, and that won't be fun," the musician says in the June issue of Rolling Stone (which hits newsstands Friday).
"But that's part of what talking to you is about — is hoping people will understand, and hoping they'll be fairly kind."
The rocker will go by the name Laura Jane Grace (Gabel has a "Grace" tattoo) and will remain married to wife Heather. The two have a daughter, 2.
"For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news," Gabel says about Heather. "But she's been super-amazing and understanding."

What could be more anticipated: The triumphant return of seminal grunge band Soundgarden or the upcoming multi-hero'd "Avengers" movie? Well, for buffs of both music and movies, there's no need to make an executive decision. The super and the sonic have clashed in Soundgarden's "Live to Rise" video.
The video combines the simplicity of an intimate band performance with some seriously action-packed scenes from the movie that's hitting theaters May 4. With a ridiculously A-List lineup of stars, including Robert Downy Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans to name just a few, it's no wonder Soundgarden re-emerged 15 years after their last original recording to write a song just for the Joss Whedon-directed film. With New York City getting destroyed by robots, mutants, aliens, sexy ladies and what have you (can you tell I don't know much about the Marvel world?), Soundgarden's hard-rocking riffs andRead More »from Avengers Crash Soundgarden’s “Live To Rise” Video, Film Footage Sneak Peek!

Frances Bean Cobain and mother Courtney Love [Photos: Steve Granitz/WireImage; Steve Lovekin/Getty Images]In the aftermath of erratic singer Courtney Love's latest Twitter rant claiming Foo Fighters/Nirvana musician Dave Grohl hit on her daughter, 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain has cleared the air: Dave Grohl never hit on her!
Frances Bean Cobain told Us Weekly, "While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn… I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship [with the Rambles' Isaiah Silva], and very happy."
Most poignantly, Cobain added, "Twitter should ban my mother."Read More »from Courtney Love Should Be Banned From Twitter, Says Frances Bean Cobain
