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.
Looks like Guns N' Roses are headed back to Las Vegas for another residency. The band, along with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas have been teasing an upcoming event set for Spring 2014, even giving fans the opportunity to hear the big news before anyone else by texting a special number.
Guns N' Roses will be back on the road in 2014. The eight-piece band consisting of vocalist Axl Rose, guitarists DJ Ashba, Richard Fortus and Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thai, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer heads to South America in March for several concerts.
