Photo: Mazur/WireImage(Pickler), Coppola/FilmMagic(Tranter) Here’s something for the “unconventional collaborations” files: American Idol country sweetheart Kellie Pickler has found a new partner in crime in fiercely flamboyant glam rocker Justin Tranter of Semi Precious Weapons. The pair met at New York’s Bryant Park last February, hit it off and stayed in touch. “We just clicked instantly, probably because we look like gorgeous blonde twins, both wearing 5-inch heels separated at birth and raised on different planets,” Tranter ...

Hype Monitor: Joy Orbison, Wild Beasts, The Grand Prize Winners from Last Year

September 3rd, 2009

September 3rd, 2009
Photograph by Cory White for Rolling StonePink’s Funhouse tour touches down in the States in two weeks, which means Americans will get their first look at the singer’s high-flying circus spectacle. It’s a physically punishing show that has the nearly 30-year-old star spinning from the ceiling to masturbation tune “Fingers,” catapulting though the air on a trapeze and, perhaps even more dangerously, covering “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Rolling Stone’s Gavin Edwards met up with Pink (born Alecia ...
