Lance Armstrong Tells Oprah ALL

Will Lance Armstrong Tell Oprah EVERYTHING?


Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong will sit down with Oprah Winfrey for what is being billed as a no holds barred interview.

Years of doping speculation finally culminated with the 7 time Tour de France winner being stripped of his titles last summer.

The Austin resident was also prohibited from participating in any event sanctioned by the World Anti Doping Agency, which includes marathons and triathlons.

Dropped by his high profile friends, Armstrong resigned from  Livestrong, the cancer charity he founded in the wake of his own recovery from testicular cancer.

These high profile interviews are ratings gold, but are they enough to sustain an entire network?

Oprah’s chat with Lance will air on January 17 @ 9PM on OWN.

Courtney Love apologizes to Billy Corgan via FACEBOOK.

Billy and Court in happier (?) times.

Ummm…so Courtney Love is publicly apologizing to Billy Corgan for her being insane on Facebook.  Nice timing, Court, since you are have just released a new single (Skinny Little Bitch) and have a new album coming out.

via 107.7TheEnd:

“Dearest Billy:

I love you, I love your strong and eternal heart, even love the f***ed up gnarly amazing magnificent bigger-than-god louder-than-love karma of the songs you write and allow me to fly with. We have again created beauty from the agony between us, all the buried and unburied anguish, all that is true, that is gold, that is meant to be is within this endless and somehow eternal cycle of Billy & Courtney. I hope you will take my sincerest apologies for all the thousand ways I sometimes offend you, because I know you are a king, a prince, and my beautiful noble boy. No one will ever force my hand, nothing will come between the truth of what we are:

Eternal lovers

Eternal fighters
Eternal warriors.

Let the forces and the shock and awe loose from its cages, all credit where it is due. I love and you and can never thank you enough.Your soul (and you know this).

Xxx CLC”

Doesn’t Courtney realize that Billy is too busy snorting Jessica Napalm Simpson right now to be bothered with Facebook apologies?

The Odd Couple

But having said that, Skinny Little Bitch is the shit.  Look it UP, Donna, and download it.  I will always have a soft spot for Courtney and her crazy bitch ass.

John Mayer is super, super sorry for using “that” word, y’all. (Appearance by Snippy the Giraffe.)

"Umm. Wait. That's not what I meant."

Well, THAT was fast, Mr. Mayer.  After his odd interview with Playboy, John felt the need to backpedal a bit…and that’s okay, I ‘spose.  (Speaking as one who can also be “very”…we’ll all be using that adverb to describe questionable personal behavior, mark my words.)

ANYblabbermouth, here’s what John had to say about the controversial interview:

“Re: using the ‘N word’ in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word. And it’s such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there’s no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged.

And while I’m using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it’s time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews. It started as an attempt to not let the waves of criticism get to me, but it’s gotten out of hand and I’ve created somewhat of a monster. I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don’t have the stomach for it. Again, because I don’t want anyone to think I’m equivocating: I should have never said the word and I will never say it again.I just wanted to play the guitar for people. Everything else just sort of popped up and I improvised, and kept doubling down on it…”

Uh oh.

John. Stop talking.  Just sing.
