Q &A: Brandon Flowers
The multiplatinum Killers just released a new CD, "Sam's Town." Lead singer Brandon Flowers talked to Jac Chebatoris.
I think that gave us a lot of confidence, so we're coming out guns blazing.
We've embraced our Western roots! That's what the album is about and we thought we might as well go with it. Maybe I'm going to be reincarnated as [the outlaw] Josey Wales.
People who are actually friends with Jason Lee have stopped and talked to Ronnie and did not know it wasn't Jason.
Yeah. It's difficult sometimes. I think growing up in Las Vegas was a good primer for it.
I feel kind of bad that his name has been attached to us, because what if he doesn't like it? All I did was tell a journalist that's what I was listening to. The album doesn't sound like "Born to Run." People get brainwashed into thinking that's what it sounds like because of what they've read.
I would do, like, a musical.
"The Sound of Music." Maybe I can be the Captain. The salt and pepper is coming.
Oh, I have hundreds.
No, I'm just going to let it happen. I'm a natural man.
Shanna Moakler: Why Are You Famous?
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO, WE FIGURED out who she is. Think of it as a public service. Here's Moakler by the numbers; you can thank us later.
29% Paris Hilton alleges that Moakler punched her in the face.
37% Appears on "Meet the Barkers" with hubby Travis; now divorcing
5% Sues former boyfriend Oscar de la Hoya for $62.5M
7% Receives crown for Miss USA in 1995
22% Contestant on the third season of "Dancing With the Stars." Gets booted off even before Jerry Springer!
One thing for sure: this woman is not Angelina Jolie. Beyond that? Murky. Madonna visited an AIDS orphanage in Malawi, and the child-welfare ministry said it expected her to file adoption papers last Thursday. Didn't happen. Her publicist said the visit had to do with her Raising Malawi project, which will provide food, shelter and education, and had "no information or confirmation" about an individual child: "She's kind of adopting a whole nation of children." Is that a denial? We report, you decide.
