|Jagger in more trouble; 'NSYNC releases
I think I've found the source of the planet's looming overcrowding problem. Look no further than the archaic front man of The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger.
The 56-year-old singer added child number seven to his dependant after he lost a paternity suit to Brazilian model Luciana Morad.
Jagger was ordered to pay a staggering $10,000 per month in support of his infant son, Lucas.
He may have lucked out however; Morad reportedly was seeking $35,000 to raise the nine-month old.
The case is not closed though; another hearing has been scheduled for sometime in May. For the time being, Jagger has to pay $10,000 per month to Morad.
'NSYNC's Back, Alright
Cut free from the "strings" (their label and manager) that were holding them back, pop-sensation 'NSYNC is back with the enormously anticipated release of No Strings Attached, to be released nationwide tomorrow.
The MTV/Total Request Live mainstays chose all the producers and songwriters for Strings and even co-wrote or co-produced three tracks from the album.
Also hitting record store shelves this week:
Ice Cube -- War & Peace Vol. 2: The Peace Disc
Aqua -- Aquarius
Patti Smith -- Gung Ho
Joni Mitchell -- Both Sides Now
Led Zeppelin -- Latter Days -- The Best of Led Zeppelin Vol. 2
Pantera -- Reinventing the Steel
This week, teens dominate the big screen.
Budding teen star Chris Klein (American Pie) headlines with fellow adolescence stars, Leelee Sobieski (She's All That) and Josh Harnett (The Faculty) in the new pubescent romance flick, Here on Earth.
Sobieski's character suffers from a terminal illness while sandwiched in a love triangle between the preppy Klein and simple Harnett.
Whatever It Takes is a rehash of the classic tale Cyrano deBergerac.
Takes stars Shane West and James Franco as two guys willing to do just about anything to get the girl of their dreams. Of course there are numerous hijinks along the way to keep you laughing down the aisle.
Hollywood outdid itself with this next movie. Take a timeless tale of love and add martial arts, explosions and hip-hop and you get the new and improved version of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo Must Die. This version stars martial arts action star Jet Li (Lethal Weapon 4), r&b songstress Aaliyah and rapper DMX in the flick.
The following entertainers are sure to have the Bayou City rockin' over the next week.
Filter with Chevelle -- March 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Box Birthday Bash (Ruff Ryders/Cash Money Tour) -- March 22 at 7 p.m.
