Sugar Bits - Dr. Martens Apologizes for Kurt Cobain Ad

  • Dr. Marten has publicly apologized for publishing the series of ads featuring Kurt Cobain and other deceased musicians wearing their shoes in heaven. The shoe company also fired the agency responsible for the ads, Saatchi & Saatchi, after Courtney lashed out at the company for using his image in such an offensive way. What do you think, did the ad go too far? - People
  • Kelly evidently ignored apologies by Idol execs after Clive Davis blatantly dissed her in his speech praising every Idol except her on Wednesday's show - TMZ
  • Idol will never be the same after 2010. Simon has said he won't renew his contract in three years. - R&M
  • Rumor has it that Paula Abdul didn't really break her nose tripping over her Chihuahua. She was in a rage and threw something into a mirror and a shard of glass struck her in the face. Guess that's why her nose looks fine. - Page Six
  • Rose McGowan evidently still has hard feelings against Dita Von Teese for stealing Marilyn Manson. When Dita performed her show at amFAR this week, Rose stepped outside. Wait, didn't she just break up Robert Rodriguez's 16 year marriage? - R&M

Should Clive be dissing the idol who has had the most success when talking about how strong the idol franchise is? I wouldn't accept his apology either.Even if Dita did "steal" MM from Rose, isn't it time to get over it? MM left Dita for Evan, he's clearly no prize!

Rose McGowan can kiss my ass. Homewrecking whore. UGH. I really can't stand her. She's been sleeping with dude since like 05. Both of them are nasty.

"The shoe company also fired the agency responsible for the ads" Wait, I thought ads had to be approved by the company before they're put out?

I also think the Docs ads are in incredibly bad taste. Kurt was not a sell-out and if he were alive he wouldn't do this ad.I love Simon. I hope he changes his mind.I had a feeling Paula was a fat liar. I bet she was drunk.

Kelly just won ASCAP awards for best songwriting of the year, so I think Clive should just chill and let her do her thing. She has already proven herself with multiple hits that she has WRITTEN.

Oh Kelly Clarkson right I had forgotten about her lol. She needs to get over it and move on, she's fighting with Clive Davis who signs the pay checks. She's dispensable he isn't.

I thought Rose McGowan was the one who broke off the engagement with Marilyn Manson, not the other way around. Even if Dita "stole" Manson, if Rose really is the reason Robert Rodriguez ended his 16 year marriage then she truly is a hypocrite.

Cinnamon Girl is right. it is so disrespectful. Kurt Cobain was a great musician and he is now considered a legend. To disrespect him like that is so wrong!!
