Vince Neil: 'I Don't Completely Trust Them'

October 5th, 2010 4:19pm EDT
Vince Neil
Rocker Vince Neil is always skeptical when his Motley Crue band mates contact him, because he's convinced there's always an "ulterior motive".

The singer has endured a strained past with fellow Crue stars Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars, which saw him exit the group in 1992 before rejoining the band five years later. The quartet went on hiatus as the stars pursued solo careers and reunited once more in 2004 to launch their comeback.

However, Neil insists he's still weary of his rocker pals and they all share a love/hate relationship with one another. He tells AOL's Popeater.com, "It...

Guyliner 2.0

Tokio Hotel
Okay, so Starpulse ran an article on February 21 titled "Guyliner: Hot Or Not? You Decide," but we left a number of big names off of that list-- enough, in fact, to make a second list of more men who publicly wear the dark penciling around their eyes.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately. While our first article may have taken a positive slant on the issue at hand, this writer is only creeped out by these men who are obviously more concerned with their image than anything else.
