Bruce Springsteen, E Street Band hit Nationals Park Sept. 14
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon stint on the pop-culture tour finds a boss, a walk-back, other things, and the mystery music video.
BRUCE: Springsteen and the E Street Band will hit D.C. Sept. 14 at Nationals Park, and tickets go on sale April 27, and reviews for the Wrecking Ball tour have been largely positive, and then some, per brucespringsteen.net, “See for yourself in this new video of “Death To My Hometown” compiled from live performances and rehearsals at the Apollo Theater, Atlanta, and SXSW featuring Tom Morello!” http://bit.ly/IDD0yO
FAMILIAR ROAD: Perhaps Amanda Bynes has chosen to take it, per People, “The former Nickelodeon actress didn't let a DUI arrest on April 6 stop her from hitting the party circuit – and backing over a curb with her car while using her iPhone behind the wheel on Thursday night.” http://bit1.ly/HP3YDn
D’OH!: Hmmm, per TV Guide, “Sorry Oregon, you won't be able to claim Homer, Bart and the rest of The Simpsons clan as your own. The Simpsons creator Matt Groening confirms exclusively to TV Guide Magazine that his recent statements were misinterpreted — he did not reveal that his long-running animated Fox comedy was set in Oregon.” http://bit.ly/IeR1ON
REALLY?: The cops actually said he was “twisted?” Per the New York Post, “A twisted Sean “Diddy” Combs fan sneaked into the rap mogul’s East Hampton home and partied like a rock star, gorging on fancy food and high-end liquor while parading through the palace in the hip-hop magnate’s finest clothes, cops said yesterday. (The intruder) found an unlocked basement door and made himself at home for nearly 24 hours in the sprawling mansion.” http://nyp.st/HGjEYd
SHEESH: Deep into this piece is the revelation that Jersey Shore star Pauly D gets $150,000 per episode, not including bonuses, per The Hollywood Reporter, “Jersey Shore's DJ Pauly D is being sued by his former talent agency ICM for allegedly refusing to hand over commissions from a deal to star on the MTV show.” http://bit.ly/Ilr6XP
MEL GIBSON: And Joe Eszterhas, per Vulture, “Joe Eszterhas was on the Today show this morning to discuss his letter to Mel Gibson that accuses Gibson of intense anti-Semitism, serious violence, and of knocking over an "expensive, beautifully-carved totem pole," among other things. In the segment, Eszterhas repeated many of the accusations.” http://bit.ly/IDNv50
GUY’S GOTTA HAVE THE GO-TO MOVE: With apologies to parents of teenaged girls, per E!, “First Zac Efron was dropping condoms on the red carpet; now he's giving tutorials on how to unhook bras! The 24-year-old star of The Lucky One demonstrated his impressive bra-removal skills on the Australian TV show Hot30 Countdown.” http://eonli.ne/HGawEK
POLITICO PLAY: “The Draperizing of Mitt Romney is under way. He may not drink or cheat, and he lacks the fictional ad-maker’s charisma, but Democrats, despite the potential perils of such a strategy, remain determined to paint Romney as a throwback to the “Mad Men” era — a hopelessly retro figure who, on policy and in his personal life, is living in the past.” http://politi.co/HD1iub
LINDSAY LOHAN: What? But she was at home and not even there, cough, per Radar, “Another eyewitness, who is not a hotel staff member, has come forward in the alleged assault investigation involving claims that Lindsay Lohan shoved Marisa Dugas at a nightclub in The Standard Hotel, and has filed an official police report with detectives of the West Hollywood Sheriff's Department, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.” http://bit.ly/J6y1CI
GOOD FOR THEM: Not sure Neil Young would this, though, per Rolling Stone, “The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they're bringing their music to Spotify, making their entire catalog available on the streaming service as of today.” http://bit.ly/IgbKBQ
GOOGLE ARTS PROJECT: Some museums are hesitant to take part, per the New York Times, “The greatly expanded second iteration of this online compilation of self-selected art museums and artworks was unveiled last week. It makes available images of more than 32,000 works in 31 mediums and materials, from the collections of 151 museums and arts organizations worldwide, forming a broad, deep river of shared information, something like a lavishly illustrated art book fused with high-end open storage.” http://nyti.ms/HFuMYS
THREE TIMES AN AUDIT: Once, twice. . .per TMZ, “For most people ... a $1.1 million debt to the IRS is a REALLY BIG DEAL ... but when you're Lionel Richie and worth an estimated $200 mil ... it's probably just a nuisance. According to documents obtained by TMZ ... Richie owes the federal government $1,130,609.11 in unpaid income tax for 2010.” http://bit.ly/HFDcO1
YEAH, I’M BACK: Run along, children, per Billboard, “Adele's titanic-selling "21" album is looking likely to return to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for a 24th nonconsecutive week. While it's too early to tell just how much it will sell by week's end on Sunday, April 15, a figure in the range of 110,000 to 130,000 is possible.” http://bit.ly/HQluDg
