Janet Jackson - Rushed to Hospital Before Concert

Janet Jackson

I just happened to notice while checking my email that Janet Jackson has been hospitalized. From what I can gather she fell "suddenly ill" after a sound check right before a concert in Montreal and was rushed to the hospital there. I went to Janet Jackson's official site and not to take light of anyone that has fallen ill one of the things I found was this on her site which I assume is from her publisher, "Janet Jackson's latest choreographed concert spectacle is an aggressive reminder to the world that she is a woman who has risen above fads and scandal … It is a reminder that she is a trend-setter in her own right, a true diva, and a marvelous performer."***THANK YOU

You know my thoughts are for someone who was trying to stay away from fads and or scandal you Miss. Jackson have now put yourself in the thick of it. I'm not saying this is done intentionally but that is what has happened. It seems that if you are in the public eye, as she has been her whole life, everything you do is going to be publicized. Illness is no longer just an illness, not in the public eye anyway. I'm sure there will be rumours floating around the globe surrounding this "illness". I treat people as I would want to be treated so I'm not going to adhere to rumour and scandalous action. I feel sorry for Miss Jackson. I hope this is not something done for publicity but then again I hope that she is not ill and this is not a serious health issue. Anyway.... Miss Jackson whatever the issue may be I wish you a speedy recovery.

Now with that being said I'm off to another day of work.

Okay if you haven’t heard of these guys WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN? I had heard of Buckcherry for some time…years in fact. I liked their music it always had a catchy beat and good guitar work. The thing that kinda had me leaning on disliking them was the guitar chords used in their songs sounded WAY too familiar. Like their song “Lit Up” sounds just like the song “Shock Me” by Ace Freely and there was always a AC/DC sound. But I always enjoyed the music and I always enjoyed the vocals. What has leaded me to the point of this band being my favorite Rock and Roll band at this point in time was seeing them live. I was fortunate enough to go to Crue Fest this year and was mostly excited to see Sixx AM.
Sixx AM
I couldn't wait to see DJ Ashba play live, I had been a fan of his since Beautiful Creatures and he SO deserves all the recognition he is getting now for his fabulous guitar work…but sad to say Sixx AM did not play Phoenix. It had something to do with the lead singer being sick.:( Hopefully they will come back and make it up to all of us Phoenicians!!) But I was also excited to see Paparoach and Buckcherry. In all honesty I was more excited to see these other bands than I was to see Motley Crue. But I’m a Rocker Chick from way back so I had already seen Motley Crue on every tour they have had since the 80’s. I love em’ but I wanted some new blood if you know what I mean.

Neither Paparoach nor Buckcherry were a disappointment.

Paparoach played so many songs that I knew but didn’t know that it was their songs. So that was delightful surprise. They held the audiences attention and really got the crowd going. I would definitely go see them again, and again, and again.

When Buckcherry hit the stage….ahhhh they were AWESOME!!! All of the songs had a great bluesy, sexy beat and were filled with great rocking guitar work. The band was full of so much energy!! They had great stage presence and the music as I mentioned was awesome. One thing that really makes this band and who just happens to be the Hot Rocker Boi of the Week/Month…is their lead singer Josh Todd.

He is an awesome front man…with vocals that have a down and dirty kind of sound but most of all sexy. He struts across the stage like a cheetah, sleek and smooth. He reminds me of a young Steven Tyler. He has so much sex appeal as he dances around the stage like he owns it and ladies I'm sure you will agree with me that he in fact does. I’m sure there were tons of wet panties in the audience that night and every time they play...I know mine were lol... Plus who can not notice the fact that he has Ken Doll body that is toned and chiseled in all of the right places. I think you will agree with me that his physique does not hurt matters one little bit and he is such a pleasure to watch onstage. All I can say is if I were around Josh Todd I would never let myself get “Too Drunk " the name of their new release off of their new c.d. Black Butterfly.
So if you haven’t actually seen these guys live…try to catch a show whenever they stroll into your town. They are gonna rock your socks off!! And you won’t be disappointed!



Something that caught my attention this past week was the interest people have in Chris Angel. I mean Chris Angel is HOT, HOT, HOT in my book. I met him at Ozzfest a few years ago and he is just as hot in person as he is on the silver screen. Also he is very, super-duper nice and cordial.
Anyways on his t.v. show Chris Angel MINDFREAK last week was very unusual and strange but that is not what was so disturbing. The disturbing part was Chris did a stunt where he was inside a car that blew up. Now on all of his other shows and his incredible stunts you always see the end result where Chris is shown and comments on the stunt. This time he did not appear…the show just went off without letting his audience know if he was alive or dead. I did some research on this and went to his myspace where he had comments from fans who were begging for him to post something and say he was okay. There were even posts where people said they had cried…thinking he was dead. Others who pleaded for him to never do this to his audience again..leaving them hanging not knowing what was the real outcome of the stunt. It has been a few days since Chris’s stunt and still no word. My opinion is he is alive…if he wasn’t it would have been on the news. There is no way the media would have let this slip by. By all means if there is any type of tragedy the media would have been all over it….
Guess we will have to wait to see if my thoughts are correct.
