Tokio Hotel Star Had Bad Experience With Viagra

May 15th, 2010 6:11pm EDT
Tokio Hotel
Tokio Hotel rocker Tom Kaulitz has sworn off using sex aid Viagra ever again after a bad experience with the drug left him struggling to see straight.

The German guitarist, 20, reveals he was approached by a dealer while on tour with the band in Asia and initially felt offended by the offer - before relenting and deciding to buy a handful of the pills.

Kaulitz tells Germany's Bild newspaper, "I first asked the seller 'Do I look like someone who needs help with that?' He said 'no' - but that I should nevertheless try it out. I popped one in."

The star decided to take a few more once he re...

Tokio Hotel: 'We're Ready For America' (Video)

March 10th, 2010 1:27pm EST
Tokio Hotel -ASG-022071.jpg
In an interview with Nylon TV, Tokio Hotel shared some interesting knowledge that only hardcore fans may know about them.

For example: despite being named after the city, the band has never been to Tokyo, Japan - perhaps that's why it's spelled differently! Bill and Tom Kaulitz also revealed that they are naturally dark blond and not the jet black hair we're so accustomed to seeing on them.

Their favorite bands? An eclectic mix from Aerosmith to Kings of Leon to German hip-hop.

While American tour dates have not been announced, the band hopes that America will be ready for them after the...

Tokio Hotel
Tokio Hotel rocker Tom Kaulitz has been fined for assaulting a female fan at a gas station in Germany last year.

The guitarist was accused of assaulting Perrine D. in April following a heated argument in Hamburg.

Local reports claimed the woman had spotted Kaulitz as he sat in his car on the garage's forecourt and approached him to request a photograph.

But the 20 year old refused, and was caught on CCTV footage winding down the car window and appearing to throw a lit cigarette at the fan. The video then showed the woman pick up the cigarette butt and stub it out on the window, prompting...

A Quick Look At Some Top Rap Feuds

August 22nd, 2008 9:12am EDT
Eminem
The music industry has always thrived on fabricated competition to generate publicity; The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones, The Beatles vs. Elvis Presley, Madonna vs. Cyndi Lauper, Nirvana vs. Pearl Jam, and Jonas Brothers vs. Tokio Hotel, are all apt examples of this. In comparison to the examples given here however, competition is never more prevalent than in the Hip Hop arena. It is a platform where the verbal expression of ego driven beefs and putdowns have now become part of the art itself upon which success thrives. Whether recorded or done on video, it sets Rap music apart from a...

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.
