Charlie Sheen took his live tour to Radio City Music Hall last night.
Taking the stage a few hours after allegedly sending Denise Richards a threatening email that said he’d continue to bash her unless she returned his canine, Sheen donned Yankee attire during his set and was greeted warmly at first.

(HMG Celebrity News) – Leave it to the millions of pre-teen girls and their mothers who vote like crazy but with poor reasoning skills. Widely viewed as one of the best singers left in this year’s competition, Pia Toscano rocked Tina Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High,” last night. But fickle fans sent Pia home on Thursday night’s American Idol. As host Ryan Seacrest announced her name, the stunned audience booed. The judges were as shocked as the live audience with Jennifer Lopez saying:
“I have no idea what just happened here.” “I’m shocked, I’m angry, I don’t even know what toMore >
Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth is coming to a number of cities. But what can fans that actually buy tickets to this nonsense expect to see?
“A rehearsed show,” tour co-producer Joey Scoleri tells People. “It will be spoken word, it’ll be funny and there will be interaction with the audience.”
Another source claims “Charlie has been furiously putting together his show… working with actors, directors and writers. He is really working around the clock.”

(HMG Celebrity News) – I have been of the opinion that the only thing that Charlie Sheen was winning was an eventual rehab stay or a straight jacket, when he went on his media campaign rant after he was fired earlier this month, by CBS and Warner Bros. But Charlie now has three million followers on Twitter, which is some sort of record and his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour is growing, with a dozen more dates added to his live show, now set to continue through May 3. if he doesn’t somehow self-implode, Charlie will perform on 21 dates, and each show will last 1 hour and 15 minutes.

(HMG Celebrity News) – The original Survivor champion Richard Hatch was busy utilizing his same old aggressive and manipulative techniques on the contestants of Celebrity Apprentice. But Richard is going back to the school of hard knocks Monday when he turns himself in to serve more prison time for refusing to play nice with the IRS. This after already serving three years in jail for not paying taxes on the $1 million he got from winning the first Survivor in Borneo. Richard was released on the condition that he file his 2000 and 2001 taxes and start to make restitution on the $2More >
Charlie Sheen wants to talk to his fans and “trolls” en masse so he’s taking his special brand of crazy on the road in April for his tour titled Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option.
Sheen announced the tour via Twitter but didn’t offer many sane details about what the show would entail.
According to Sheen:
“Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?! This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it. I
Before hatching on stage and performing “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga claimed she spent days in the egg carried down the Grammy Awards red carpet.
Might there be a major crack in that story?
Just hours before the February 13 show, sources say that a mysterious blonde woman was being wheeled around in a clear coffin-like box backstage.
The woman was spotted backstage right around the time Gaga finished rehearsing for her performance. Was the star trying to remain out of sight?
Hours later, Gaga famously arrived inside of a weird alien egg vessel. Or did she? Was she simply hanging out in aMore >
Egged on to up the ante for each of her live performances, Lady GaGa took things to a new extreme at the Grammy Awards.
She showed up on the red carpet inside a shell, and proceeded to belt out a rendition of her latest single, “Born This Way.” Is this song just a copy of a Madonna classic? That’s up to listeners to decide.
But one thing is certain: The Material Girl never hatched herself on stage in order to kick off a performance. Watch GaGa do just that below and then grade her Grammy gig: What do you think?
Shawn Christy, the dude who’s been legally ordered to stay away from Sarah Palin, is causing a new wave of concern in Alaska with his planned visit to the state.

Palin and Cole proved he sent them threatening emails and letters.
According to TMZ, Cole is launching a preemptive strike through the courts in the hopes of blocking Shawn Christy from “dissolving” the restraining order.

Since he first graced the American Idol stage, Adam Lambert has handled the topic of his homosexuality with grace and maturity.
That’s continued to this day, including a recent visit to France, where a reporter asked Adam if he gets bothered by how often his sexual preference comes up in interviews.
“It doesn’t bother me,” he said. “When I’m abroad, people mostly ask me why they talk about it so much in the U.S.! And it’s normal, because there are very few openly gay artists. I just don’t want it to overshadow my music, and this can be the case because of the media, who have a tendency toMore >
We love Katy Perry personally and think some of her songs are really catchy, but her live singing skills were a bit suspect at the American Music Awards.
It’s hard to watch her rendition of “Firework” (below) and not think that, but that’s just our opinion. What do you think? Did she knock it out of the park?
In her defense, at least she TRIED to sing live, which is more than we can say for some of the no-talent hacks who masquerade as musicians. Also, the boys’ choir was a nice touch, and that tear-away dress? An even nicer touch …

Arquette officially announced his break-up earlier in the week and says he cried because he finally realized the “intimacy he shared” with Courtney was done for good.
