Today In Music News: Russell Simmons Loves Yoga, Ryan Adams Gets Hitched, Prince Hits Tonight and Brett Michaels Gives Us All Diabetes.
Your daily dose of national music news for Thursday, March 12, 2009...
- Remember Ashley Dupree, New York Governor Elliot Spitzer's former call girl? Looks like she's found a new mentor in hip-hop icon Russell Simmons. It seems he's been "reaching out" to her in their yoga class. You know what position she hasn't needed help with? Downward facing dog. Zing!
- Looks like Ryan Adams married Mandy Moore in Savanah, Georgia, yesterday.
- What's the deal with musicians doing "residencies" on late night talk shows lately? U2 did five nights on Letterman last week and now Prince is doing a mini-residency of three consecutive nights on The Tonight Show in March.
- Stripper and female white trash afficianado Brett Michaels is penning a tell-all book titled Roses and Thorns: The Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy to My Reality. He says the book "gives you the sex, the drugs, the rock 'n' roll, but it also gives you the diabetes." Wait--who wants a book that gives you diabetes?
