What a Short Strange Week It's Been

What in the world is going on with music and society this week?

First, The Mother-Effing Diamond comes out and says that he wrote "Sweet Caroline" about Caroline Kennedy when she was just a wee little girl at the age of eleven. Thinking about the lyrics, the song turns out to be on the creepy, pervy side...

Neil Diamond = Pervert?

Also in non-related, other kiddie music news, Lil' Romeo, the famed young rap star protege of his famed old rap star, semi-actor, music mogul, NBA wannabe and straight-up No Limit Soldier daddy Master P (Uhhhh!!!), is headed to college (who would've thought it? He's trying to better himself by gettin' up out da hood, G!) at the University of Southern California on a basketball scholarship. I guess it pays to have all of those basketball shoes and jerseys now. Read more about the Lil' Balla here.

Willie Nelson is supporting an anti-dogfighting bill in Georgia. Ironically, he called his latest tour "The Last of the Breed Tour" with Merle Haggard and Ray Price. Nelson just announced the first string of his 2008 tour schedule this week, too. Willie's back On the Road Again, you old dog you.

And in less exciting and almost apathetic news, U2 played a surprise 20-minute acoustic set in London to 200 people in support of the Mencap's charity, Little Noise Sessions. Does anyone even care about U2 anymore?

No? Didn't think so. I guess that it is apathetic news. Nevermind.
