FLUXBLOG FILL-IN PART V: RETURN OF THE FLOYD, REVENGE OF THE JOLIE

Angelina is feeling litigious! Media journalists beware:

According to Ananova.com, Angelina Jolie has issued a document to media personnel stating that should they ask personal questions they will be sued for an undisclosed amount.

The document reads: “Interviewer will not ask Ms. Jolie any questions regarding her personal relationships. In the event Interviewer does ask Ms. Jolie any questions regarding her personal relationships, Ms. Jolie will have the right to immediately terminate the interview and leave.”

Pink Floyd reunite for Live 8! They’ve set aside their differences in the hope of attracting attention to the politics behind the festival:

Gilmour said: ?Like most people, I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the Third World. It?s crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations. Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if reforming for this concert will help focus attention, then it?s got to be worthwhile.?

Billy Corgan opens up to Pitchfork! He’s upset about the lack of academic discourse about his work:

Think about it. I mean, there are books on Radiohead, theories. As far as a theoretical point of view for my generation, I’m probably the most successful theoretician. I mean, double albums and concepts and dresses and major disasters and wonderful successes and yet you don’t see the critical review of my work. Why? Because it’s all focused on the persona. Billy Corgan. But I get to sort of jump in and be Billy Corgan. But then I get to sort of jump back out and be like, sensitive man in the corner.
