All I know is her lyrics sound like a middle school student wrote them.

I hate to let facts and legit photos get in the way of a good troll thread and shops, and I know there's a lot of butthurt over Axl "breaking up the band" (even though Slash quit and both Izzy and Duff have played with GN'R in recent years), but looking like that at 50 is likely a pipe dream for most farkers, myself included.

Smackledorfer: I haven't really listened to Chinese Democracy, but I hadn't heard much about it being a huge flop or anything.

It flopped. It sold, tops, 3 million copies.

3 million copies is a flop?
i lot of artists would LOVE to sell 3 million copies of their album!

well, yeah, but those artists don't get $12-15 million up front first. I think Rose had to sell like 10-15 million copies before the label would even break even.

ohhhhhhhhhhh i see now. ok.


Just for the record Chinese Democracy made back every penny spent producing it. Internationally it did between 4-5 million however Best Buy paid 14 million for the exclusive U.S. retail rights, which recouped all costs. Touring merch and international sales then become icing on the cake.

Also any sales over a million copies is huge in this day and age. It's a shame the album took so long, and it's really just Use Your Illusion 3, but Axl kinda had the last laugh at Best Buy's expense.

I Have The Touch of a Shocked Monkey: Talentless singer whose reputation was mostly built up by indie critics (and good producers) + OK singer whose reputation was mostly built up by rock critics (and a great band to back him up)?

Yeah, this works on more levels than I thought.

She's gonna have to make a lot of trips to Dunkin' Donuts though.


I'm sorry, but regardless of what Axl Rose is now or what one's opinion of Guns n Roses is or was, Axl is arguably one of the top five front men in rock history.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: I don't think people really understand how huge the Use Your Illusion albums were.

Since I get my knowledge of Rose from working on that tour, I might have a vague idea.


Then you should know how absolutely over-the-top batshiat insane she was.

skinink: You mean aside from the fact that he was in the biggest band of the time before grunge and Nirvana came along? What supermodel would want to be in that kind of relationship?

I don't know if she wrote any of the album material but the album itself is brilliant. Probably a team of professionals but the product itself is great.

I think the above is the perfect illustration of Lana Del Ray music.

jaytkay: heinrich66: I think she could be very good if she takes some singing lessons.

This video of her is very worthwhile (new window)


Jesus that was funny.

Maybe it'll create a singularity of suck so strong that the two will be pulled together into a cosmic abyss.

/pullin' Axl will take some work

That list pic actually probably puts him on the lighter side of americans, and definitely farkers, especially for his age.


He's got the Type I diabeetus (not the kind you get from being fat, but the kind you just get), so after 30 years of drug and alcohol abuse, I'm actually surprised he isn't dead.

I'm also wondering what kind of bill he has to pay back that is making him tour this past year. He was apparently just fine being a hermit not making Chinese Democracy, but something put a bug in his butt about earning money. I wonder if he has to cover the spread he was paid for Chinese Democracy vs. what it actually earned. Wouldn't surprise me.

That said, people reviewing his shows say he's doing a good job, so good on him.

dmc001: I keep losing track of all these flavor of the week chicks. Lana Del who?


I think she was the one who went on SNL with a lot of hype and ended up sounding horrible.
