Matt Good Band Break-Up
It looks like the Matthew Good Band is finally over. MGB's label, Universal Music Canada, has confirmed that the group have called it quits, after many rumours circulated about their demise. The news comes after guitarist Dave Genn left the band in November. According to a source at Universal, Matt Good is working on new material for the label, although it remains to be seen whether Good will continue as a solo act or kickstart a new band under a new name. Rich Priske will continue recording and playing with Matt but Genn and Ian Browne are gone for good. Rumour is that Matt Good is in Maui and will not be commenting on the situation at this time. Last November Matt Good and Rich Priske told MuchNews about the hard times they had making the album �The Audio of Being�. �The whole band broke up actually, � said Good. �It was a painful process, the last year making the record. The band went though some very strong growing pains,� said bassist Priske.
Too bad.. the band was getting better as it went on!

Nick Carter's Early Recordings
Hip-O Records is releasing some pre-Backstreet Boys' recordings of Nick Carter. Called "Nick Carter: Before the Boys 1989-1993", the album will contain 14 songs recorded prior to Nick becoming a BSB member. The early recordings are due for release March 26th. The songs were produced by Carter's former producer and vocal teacher Mark Dye and includes performances from a Tampa Bay Buccaneers halftime show, Florida State Fairs as well as several patriotic songs. Christina Aguilera experienced a similar situation last year when Warlock/Platinum Recordings released an album of her early recordings called �Just Be Free�. Unlike Carter, though, Aguilera tried to legally stop the album from being released, but failed.
The first line is all you need to read.. and that was a waste of fucking time!

Britney's Acting Is Machine-Like
Britney Spears� feature film debut �Crossroads� releases nation wide today. But already critics are calling Britney�s acting �machine-like� and �awkward.� One of the toughest reviews comes from the New York Post which described it as �a movie so pathetically lame even her most ardent fans will give this stinker a big thumbs down.�
Its cool to hate!
