All the News That Didn't Fit
The inaugural Latin Grammys will be held September 13 at Los Angeles' Staples Center. Nominations for the 40 categories will be announced in July. In a related matter, Jennifer Lopez began taping her breasts... Mariah Carey left the Boston hospital this morning (4/6), where she was recuperating from dehydration and food poisoning. On her way out, she was overheard asking a nurse directions to the nearest Red Lobster... Fat Possum blues artist Junior Kimbrough's legendary jukejoint, Junior's, burned to the ground near Holly Ridge, MS. It was basically a “shack,” according to the label's Mark Mauer, but the history of people such as R.L. Burnside (of "Sopranos" soundtrack fame) playing there on Sunday nights gave it notoriety. Initial police reports claim TLC's Left Eye was not in the state at the time... A 19-year-old who claims his hearing was damaged at a Black Crowes concert in Knoxville, TN, in April 1999, is suing the band for $385,000 (or a whole lot of weed). Reached for comment, the fan said, “Huh? Come again?”... Rage Against The Machine singer Zack de la Rocha is in the studio working on his debut solo record with Company Flow's El-P producing several tracks... Because everybody needs a publishing deal, one-time Alanis Morissette and current Foo Fighters' skinsman Taylor Hawkins, now has one with Universal Music Publishing... Luscious Jackson broke up last week. Please don't cry. I hate it when you cry. If it makes you feel better, former Jackson keyboardist Vivian Trimble's new project, Dusty Trails, has a record coming out May 9. There, there, now, you'll always have Kittie... Warner Music Europe President Southern Europe Gero Caccia announced the appointment of Philippe Desindes as President Warner Music France. Desindes joins WMI from Sony Music France, where he made wine by crushing grapes in his own backyard... From the Scandinavian news department: One of the “A's” in ABBA, Agnetha Faltskog, has filed a complaint that she is being stalked by a 34-year-old man, who reportedly moved to Sweden to be closer to her. And the Norwegian band Aqua's singer, Lene Nystrom, defends her decision to have breast implants, saying, “I've always been thin and flat-chested—in short, very boyish,” not to boost record sales or because Aqua's lone hit was about a toy doll with plastic breasts, “Barbie Girl.” She is now also negotiating to hire Agnetha's stalker to follow her.
