Jonathan Davis, lead singer of rock band Korn, had a few interesting things to say when asked about his group's latest music video.

Davis told a TMZ cameraman, "We just basically wanted people to wake up, to see what's going on.

"I think that our government uses those people [celebrities] to distract from what's really going on… that whole thing with Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, When that went down, Barack Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator… he can imprison whoever he wants, he doesn't have to charge them, he can hold them for as long as he wants."

The couple named their three-month-old Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Where they got her nickname, "Luna," from is a mystery; but their rep says each name has a special reason and meaning.

But Uma and Arpad -- who ...

Flyleaf
Sure, sure. I have heard it all already. Everyone I know that is a fan of Flyleaf is upset that the band made the decision to take the road less traveled for them, one with less screams and a tad less aggression on their new album, Memento Mori. Yeah, their self titled album was teeming with a certain kind of rawness, a certain power all its own. This time out they took the path of melody and concentrated more of their hooks than anything else and guess what, it worked perfectly. Memento Mori is a great next step for the band, a natural progression if you will. So those that are miffed, res...
