Rocker Marilyn Manson went on record recently to say that the 1999 Columbine school shooting ruined his career. The singer, known for his eccentric style, came under fire when it was announced that the shooters, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, were fans of his music.
“The Columbine shooting really shut down my career,” Manson told Billboard. “Casinos, gambling establishments, they all refused to book my shows.”
“The media sensationalized these killers. They were even on the cover of Time. I never have been. I sometimes wonder if I’ve outgrown the limelight.”
Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, emerged onto the Florida music scene in 1989. The group’s unique monickers, as well as style of dress and performance, caught the attention of Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor. Manson’s band released their debut album in 1994 and had their first mainstream music breakthrough with 1995’s “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).” Jennifer can remember those early days.
Manson is most famous for his 1995 hit, as well as the songs “Beautiful People” and “The Dope Show.” He has been romantically linked in the past to “Charmed” actress Rose McGowan, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, and actress Rachel Evan Wood.
The Columbine High School shooting took place on April 20, 1999. Harris and Klebold, who were students at the school, entered the building with multiple guns, killing twelve students and one teacher. The pair later killed themselves in the school’s library.

Giorgio Moroder has recently released his first album in 30 years. Called Déjà Vu, the work is composed of electronic tracks, appropriate for a man who created some of the most memorable songs from the 1970’s and 1980’s. Some of his popular hits include “I Feel Love” and “Love to Love You” by Donna Summer, “What a Feeling” from the Flashdance movie soundtrack, the Scarface soundtrack, “Call Me” by Blondie and “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin. He had moved away from music after hip-hop and alternative rock and roll became more popular in the 1990’s. Moroder did some work in architecture, luxury car design, and portraiture. However, he remained unfulfilled, he says, because he was not doing music.
Then, out of nowhere he got a call from French electronic duo Daft Punk to do an album. That album, Random Access Memories from 2013, became a great success for Daft Punk and Moroder became popular again, getting requests for albums and DJing gigs, among other things. His new album includes artists like Britney Spears, Sia and others who are much younger, than his 75 years. But for those in electronica, he’s highly respected.
Although Moroder does not consider himself a great composer, he says that he knows how to use the machinery. Using music techonology since he was a teen, James Dondero is assured that such knowledge has served him well.

The now 31 year old started her pursuit for a respected place in the music industry earlier this year ago by releasing an ethereal music video to her new track ‘Raining Gold.’ After racking up over 2 million views in just 2 short months, the singer is ready to take her career to the next level by releasing her first EP called ‘ARO’ this summer. Steve Murray said that she has already started promoting her upcoming album by traveling the country and performing her new music. The album is expected to have an alternative pop sound and feature heartfelt lyrics about Osbourne’s life trials and frustrations.

isn’t sure of the specifics, but realizes the sensitivity. Now that she and Kanye are trying everything in the book to attempt another baby it seems that that getting frustrated about the amount of sex they have or don’t have can be an issue.
In and Interview Kim was asked if she and Kanye ever fight about how much time they spend in the bedroom, Kim insisted that she never fights about sex or children with her husband. Kim went on to say that Kanye is a great dad and is so protective of North that he baby proofs things she can’t even reach.
