2011 Loudwire Music Awards: WTF Moment of the Year
This year has certainly served up a feast of WTF moments. We've compiled five moments that left the rock and metal world screaming "WTF?!" for the 2011 Loudwire Music Awards' WTF Moment of the Year.
Courtney Love did something odd this year? You've got to be joshing me. At a Hole show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Love flashed the crowd and threw Dave Grohl under the bus after a fan held up a picture of Love's late husband, Kurt Cobain. She proceeded to go off on Grohl and the Foo Fighters after leaving the stage. "I don't care what you listen to at home, Love told the crowd, "but if a guy takes money off my kid's table, f--- him."
White Stripes frontman Jack White got all WTF when he collaborated with Insane Clown Posse this year to compose a track dedicated to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The team discovered a Mozart piece entitled, 'Leck Mich Im Arsch,' which translates to 'Lick Me in the Arse.' On the track, White and ICP celebrated Mozart and his apparent love for salad.
'Transformers' star Shia LaBeouf teamed up with Marilyn Manson to direct the shock rocker's 2011 video 'Born Villian.' The six-minute video is perhaps the most intriguing, ambitious and disturbing video Manson has made in his entire career and is absolutely, 100% NSFW. Check it out here if you aren't faint of heart.
'Lulu.' It's the four letter word that has conjured up some of the most extreme reactions within the metal world in 2011. After much hype, the collaboration of Lou Reed & Metallica was released Nov. 1 of this year, gaining perfect scores from some and 0 out of 10 by others. Lou Reed has even claimed to have received death threats due to the collaboration.
Scott Weiland has certainly had his share of white Christmases in his time, but in 2011, Weiland embraced the holiday spirit in a different way -- releasing 'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.' The Stone Temple Pilots singer has re-invented himself into a family-friendly crooner, covering 10 Christmas classics. Weiland even shot a video for his cover of the 1934 Christmas standard, 'Winter Wonderland.'
