There's a quick little Dallas dig buried deep in this online MTV News round-up piece (mainly about Aretha Franklin not being so into Beyonce's Grammy performance). In an item about the upcoming Radiohead tour, the piece reads:
"The last confirmed venue/date is May 18 at the awesomely named SuperPages.com Center in Dallas."
Charming, MTV. We don't really need you to tell us that the ol' Starplex has a terrible new name. We're right there with you. But should you really be taking potshots at proper names considering the sheer number of music-related programming you actually air in a given week?
(We do love the Challenge, though. We're pulling hard for the Rooks on the Gauntlet III.) -- Pete Freedman
