It must be great to be Lady Gaga, mustn’t it? Apart from the money, the fame and the wigs you can wear literally anything you want. All you need to do is rummage in a collection of pathetic old fancy dress outfits and pull out whatever comes to hand first of all. If only we were all as brave as this we could wear weird Lady Gaga outfits like those below.
This Blog Rules has more pictures of WTF lady Gaga outfits.

You know what it’s like. You’ve got an interview coming up on German TV and literally nothing to wear. As you flick through your wardrobe you get depressed as nothing looks quite right. Ah, but what is that green jacket lying forgotten in a corner and croaking? That’s right, possibly the worst of the awful Lady Gaga outfits we have seen is the Kermit the frog coat. Bizarre, green and somehow rather spooky.
This famous festival brought us some of the world’s best known songs, among them Jimi Hendrix’s electrifying and disturbing version of The Star Spangled Banner. However, what many people don’t know is that while this was a huge concert very few people were there to see Hendrix send out his message (whatever the heck it was) at 9am on a Monday morning. Still, at least he was there. John Lennon was in Canada and was refused a US entry visa, while Bob Dylan was looking after one of his children, who was in hospital over the Woodstock weekend. It is estimated that a groovy 90% of the audience smoked marijuana, but strangely only 33 of the 400,000 hipsters present were arrested on drugs charges. When the food ran out a local Jewish community made hundreds of meat and pickles sandwiches, sending them over to the hungry hippies with the help of nuns.
Arguably the most successful writer in history, Stephen King blazed a trail that no one has yet to follow. Everything he touches seems to turn to gold and that gold transfers to the big screen in many of his books, essays, and short stories. With dozens of movie adaptations, television series’ and comic book and stage plays, his work can be found at your fingertips for your viewing pleasure. King is a bigger than life human being who really shrugs it all off with a gleam in his eye. We feature some of Stephen King’s successful and some not-so successful movie adaptations below.

What can we say about Alfred Hitchcock that hasn’t been already said and rehashed a million times on the mighty internet? Great Director. Check. Fat guy. Check. Perverted. Check. Makes cameos in his movies. Check. Died. Check. How about Alfred was born on August 13th – Friday. His directorial debut was to be the film “Number 13”, but was shut down after a few scenes due to “financial difficulties”. Rumors has it that he had no belly button. He was born with one, but doctors stitched it up after a stomach surgery. One more thing, chocolate syrup was used for Janet Leigh’s blood in the shower scene in “Psycho”.
So here is Alfred’s best and not so best of the best movies and quotes in “Good, Bad, and Ugly” form:
Live fast, die young and leave a good looking corpse is what they will tell you when you first become a rock star. What they won’t mention is the indignity of meeting your end floating face down in a pool or sitting on the toilet with your trousers at your ankles.
Some of the most popular and inspirational rock stars of all time died in shocking ways and here are some of the most shocking rock star deaths which shook the world.
Kurt Cobain Death Conspiracies

It is hard to believe that the Nirvana frontman died almost 20 years ago. At just 27 he was tragically young when he apparently committed suicide and it is impossible to imagine what a 40 something Cobain would have been like. Drug addiction, illness, depression and relationship problems are cited as being the reasons behind his suicide but there are plenty of Kurt Cobain conspiracy theories around to keep you intrigued as well. Some people will tell you that he was murdered, some will tell you that he is still alive and still others will maybe even tell you that he was never even born. There is even a theory that he died because he played the guitar left handed (as this was possibly the cause for his stomach pain which caused him to take so much heroin).
