This is so sad. I really love this band. I mean, it’s always sad when young people die, but it sucks extra when they’re a member of a totally kick-ass band you love.
Casey Calvert, 26, the guitarist for Hawthorne Heights, died on their tour bus on Saturday night. Cause of death is unknown.
The band posted this on their website:
Today is probably the worst day ever. Its with our deepest regrets that we have to write this. Casey Calvert passed away in his sleep last night. We found out this afternoon before sound-check. We’ve spent the entire day trying to come to grips with this and figure out as much as possible. At this time we’re not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed. We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. Please, out of respect to Casey and his family, don’t contribute or succumb to any gossip you may hear. We don’t want his memory to be tainted in the least. Casey was our best friend. He was quirky and awesome and there will truly be no others like him! His loss is unexplainable. As soon as we know more we will let you know.

From the Spice Girls official website:
The Spice Girls had some surprise visitors at rehearsals in LA recently when Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes along with baby Suri stopped by to wish them luck for the forthcoming tour.
Tom and Katie enjoyed an impromptu audience with the girls and were treated to an exclusive performance, while Suri danced along to the music.
â€œDavid and I are great friends with Tom and Katie,â€ Victoria told us afterwards â€œIt was lovely of them to come down to rehearsals, a really nice surprise. Katie has told me before that she used to be a big Spice fan so it was great for her to meet the other girls.â€

It’s kind of a miracle that Kylie Minogue can still smile. Not because of her recent battle with cancer. No, no. Because of the Botox. [FListed]
Paris Hilton? Selling out a friend? Say it ain’t so! [Mollygood]

How have we not seen a DUI out of this girl yet? It’s almost impressive. From R&M:
Don’t look for Tara Reid on another episode of “Scrubs.” Appearing at the New York Comedy Festival, show creator Bill Lawrence said Reid was his least favorite guest star – “not because she wasn’t a nice person,” but because she allegedly stank of booze and smokes.
She stank of booze on set?
So here’s the question: was she drinking on set? Or was she just still stank from the night before? Either way, very sad.

We have something of an unofficial Larry Birkhead ban around this place, but when there’s video of him running around Kitson with Dannielynn, I really have no choice.
