Lady Gaga Wants You to Wear Her Condoms, Billy Corgan Delivers Covers Set, EMI Carry That Weight of Abbey Road, Johnny Cash's 'Bitter Tears'
- Lady Gaga wants you to wrap it up with designer condom--studded, ribbed, or sheer--to help Planned Parenthood. Wonder which one she prefers to wear?
- Bootleg worth hearing: Billy Corgan covers Velvet Underground, Neil Young, the Beatles and Donovan at recent Chicago-area benefit show.
- EMI carry that weight of Abbey Road recording studios, at least for now.
- Campaign begun to release shelved 1964 Johnny Cash protest album Bitter Tears, about our nation's mistreatment of Native Americans. Probably more fitting finale than latest Rich Rubin-produced from-the-grave disgrace.
