Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has made headlines in recent weeks for his humorous takes via social networking to a pair of controversies - the Red Hot Chili Peppers Super Bowl performance and the killing of a baby male giraffe in Copenhagen. However, it's the latter subject matter that still puzzles Rose and has moved him to write again, albeit in a more serious tone this time.
Various news outlets have reported on a controversial decision by a Danish zoo to kill a healthy giraffe before performing an autopsy and dismembering the animal in front of spectators. Despite mass public outcry to save the giraffe, the cause was lost and the giraffe's meat was fed to zoo lions after the animal was euthanized. In a strange and somewhat confusing twist, Axl Rose offered some unique comments on the story via his Twitter account.
Red Hot Chili Peppers have been the center of discussion in the rock world since their Super Bowl performance of 'Give It Away.' It's been revealed that the band played to a pre-recorded instrumental track during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, drawing criticism from some. The latest to sound off on the subject is none other than Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose, who offers up a very interesting reaction to the RHCP controversy.
Who wants to buy Axl Rose's marriage certificate? How about the actual wedding video of the singer's marriage to former actress and model Erin Everly? What about a domestic abuse report? Or break-up letters penned by Rose after the marriage didn't work out? All of this and more can be yours! Seriously.
Last month, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie and her actor husband Josh Duhamel announced that they had named their son Axl. It's not a very common name, and Fergie has said she's a big Guns N’ Roses fan, meaning the kid was likely named after Axl Rose. This week, TMZ caught up with Slash and asked him his thoughts on the name (watch video above).
Fans never quite know what they're gonna get with a Guns N' Roses gig, and when the setting is a bowling alley / rock club in Brooklyn, N.Y., there's truly no telling what could happen. On Thursday night (June 6), Axl Rose and company rolled (pun intended) into the Brooklyn Bowl and scored big with the fans who were lucky enough to attend such an intimate GN'R gig.
