Comment Box: Suri Scoop, Rock Star Gossip

By Liz Kelly

The real question is: how crappy do Cruise's adopted kids feel about all of this Suri hype? I assume that when the rest of the photos come out Conner [sic] and Bella will be fuzzy blurs in the background. -- KG comments on We're Soooo Suri

KG, I can't speak for Isabella and Connor, but the Vanity Fair photo spread does feature them rather prominently in one of the photos -- they're smiling alongside dad, Suri and Katie. Here's the pic in two parts. [1] [2]

P.S. A special thanks to all of you who wrote in with additional Suri conspiracy theories. From speculating on her parentage (L. Ron Hubbard, Jet Li, his sister's egg) to her disguise (wig and fake tan) to the real story behind her name ("Suri Cruise" = Tom's home town of "Syracuse"), it definitely made for some interesting reading.

Remember in that Metallica documentary how Jason Newstead [sic] left Metallica for some new band (not Voivod) and it made Lars cry? Whatever happened to that new band? -- Anonymous comments on 'Rock Star': You Be the Judge

Ah yes, Jason Newsted left the band midway through the recording of "St. Anger," as documented in the incredible film "Some Kind of Monster," to concentrate on his side project, EchoBrain. He was involved in the band's 2002 self-titled release, but by 2004's "Glean" he had already moved on to his current gig with Voivod (by way of a tour backing Ozzy Osbourne in between).

But a few undocumented quotes on Wikipedia point to some deeper reasons for his departure: James Hetfield questioned Newsted's dedication to Metallica and his ability to manage side projects while remaining in the band. A few other rumors include Metallica's refusal to fully accept Jason as a member of the band after almost two decades and his status as the favored target of continued pranks by other band members. He was also apparently turned off by the band's decision to hire a group psychologist.

As we all know, Newsted is currently one-third of the "Rock Star" band Supernova.

Comment of the Week
"As Homer Simpson's said, 'Look, all I'm saying is, if these big stars didn't want people going through their garbage and saying they're gay, then they shouldn't have tried to express themselves creatively.' Now there's some real credibility., quoting a animated character. Good God!" -- BDWEsqTM on Celebritology 101: Why Ben Affleck Should Shuddup
