ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

IN BRIEF

New NIN material to materialize
The next epic from our beloved leather-clad heretic, entitled Bleed Through, is slated for a late summer completion and a fall release. According to RollingStone.com, the album will contain none of the filler and instrumentals that characterized The Fragile; rather, “12 good punches in the face.” The NIN boys are also planning to head out on the road for a couple of months as a preview to the new album. Hey, maybe they’ll even come to London!

Clay Aiken
immortalized in museum

Leave it to America to make a passing-fad-of-a-pop-idol a “national treasure.” North Carolina’s Museum of Natural History has obtained a suit from Mr. Aiken, and it’s currently on display for all to see. Fans and museum-goers can now gawk at the geeky pinstriped pants and white-collared shirt that Aiken was known for during his memorable run as the nerd-with-the-surprisingly-good-voice on American Idol. The clothes will be on display until Sept. 6, at which point they will be publicly burned — err, that is added to the museum’s permanent stored collection.

Sum 41 in trouble with the law
According to MTV.com, Sum 41 are being sued for US$6 million — ouch! Surely the sales of Does This Look Infected? won’t pay for that! Apparently, the guys are facing the wrath of Michael Sudore, who was featured in the band’s bonus DVD (he’s shown getting a hot dog chucked in his face). The catch? Sudore never agreed to be in the video, and the unauthorized use of his image has caused him “significant psychological trauma.” Sounds like he’s taken lessons from the lady who spilled McDonald’s coffee in her lap.
