Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne must really LOVE their English mansion. It has suffered $500,000 of flood damage in one of the country's wettest years. They have to move out for at least 9 months while damage is repaired... mind you - this is the SAME house where Ozzy broke his neck in 2003, suffered from not one, but two fires in 2004 & 2006, and someone broke into the house in 2004 and took $1.5 million in jewelrey. Maybe it's time to throw in the chips...

Four High School kids in New York got in trouble for dressing as KISS for Senior Celebrity Dress Up Day... They didn't even wear the spandex & crazy boots. It was the make-up that got them busted and sent home. The school said it was "not appropriate" because the make-up made their faces unrecognizable. They offered to wear name tags, but were told no & STILL sent home. Boo! Here a picture of the kids, before their parade was rained on...

We're hearing through the grapevine that Van Halen is working on a new album. Alter Bridge/ Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti let it slip in an interview with VH1. He was talking about new music from his solo project, Tremonti< which features Wolfgang Van Halen on bass, and Mark said it's hard to line everyone's schedules up because VH is working on their new album too. Of course he didn't have any inside info how it sounds because Wolfie keeps things pretty quiet.

In other VH news, Scandal singer Patty Smyth says it her that was approached to front the band after David Lee Roth left them without a singer. The timing was wrong and she had to turn them down, so they went with their second choice - Sammy Hagar.

PBS's digital studios has taken Jimi Hendrix's final interview before his death and set it to animation for their Blank on Blank series. The theme of the series is "famous names, lost interviews." The interview is from September 11, 1970. Check it out...

The pictures and accusations have been floating around all week about how The Red Hot Chili Peppers were totally unplugged and faking that they were playing their instruments. Flea issued a statement saying that the NFL allows live vocals, but is very strict aboutinstruments being pre-recorded. They have very little time to get the halftime show done and will not let poor quality sound interfere with the halftime show. Flea admits the band is very set against faking and miming their music, but agreed this was a once in a lifetime thing to be on the halftime show of the Super Bowl and went ahead with the gig - but purposely did not plug in - which would have avoided the controversy - but "thought better to not pretend."

"When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.
