Sometimes I just have to write these bad rascals up because of the wonderful pop name associations. I figured the opportunity may never come again to refer to Nicki Minaj, Steven Tyler and Bob Dylan in the same post so I better get to it before the times they start a changing. Tyler called out Minaj using Dylan as a reference and Nicki fired back via Twitter calling Tyler a racist based on his statements. Get the blow by blow that was blowing in the wind and find out why both Tyler and Minaj were way off base with their assumptions.

Being a celebrity blogger I’m used to enjoying the sight of attractive female celebrities wearing everything from bikinis to lingerie to sometimes nothing at all, but former Real Housewives of New York City‘s Kelly Bensimon struck me out looking by pitching some high heat fashion woo in a Bob Dylan print cami dress earlier today. Keep reading to see the photo that may just have converted me from Team Bethenny as well as some brutally twisted Dylan lyrics like:
“Well, I see you got your brand new Bob Dylan print cami dress…“
Stand back everybody who knows that the sun’s not yellow it’s chicken and that man thinks because he rules the earth he can do with it as he pleases.

It is being reported 18-year-old pop singer, and former star of Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus has cut a track for the upcoming tribute CD Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of AMNESTY International, due out in early 2012. Ahhhhh, the times are indeed a-changin’!

If you were to put me in a fantasy music ship and asked me to concoct a concept for an album, it would be something like the upcoming release The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams. Bob Dylan gets the unfinished lyrics of Hank Williams, then recruits greats like Alan Jackson, Lucinda Williams, Levon Helm and Jack White to finish writing the songs and make an album out of it. See the cover art work, get the track listing and find out where you can pre-order your copy of what promises to be an instant classic.
Bonus: See Lucinda Williams performing her song live from the night she got married on stage!
Critics were all over legend Bob Dylan when he recently toured China for the very first time. Reports of censorship and outcries for the man to publicly speak out about injustices rained down from all sides. Dylan almost always lets his songs do the talking because he can, but in this instance the idiot wind was blowing so hard he felt compelled to reply. Read Dylan’s statement that flat out steamrolls the speculative criticism that came his way.
