The Who's Pete Townshend issued an apology to a 7-year-old girl he told to f--- off.
According to the Toronto Son, last month Townshend was playing a concert in Ontario when he spotted a sign that read, "Smash Your Guitar, Pete." The 67-year-old rocker apparently then yelled to the girl and her dad, "Go away with that sign, please, just go away with it. Don't bring your children [or] use them. I want to tell you two words but I can't because you've got a child there." Townshend then mouthed the words "f--- off." Eric Michael Costello, the father of the girl, spoke out in the newspaper explaining that the sign was sincere and his daughter was a big fan of the documentary that showed The Who during their equipment-wrecking days. Once Townsend learned this, he issued an apology with the help of a local DJ.read more
Our top moments of the week:
13. Cheapest Move: After Rachel and Nick win Bachelor Pad, they have to decide separately if they want to share the $250,000 prize or each keep it for themselves.

Sure, he kind of dissed his mates by implying they didn't know the INXS catalog, but he's trying to be a rock star, and arrogance is as essential as drunken, incoherent mumbling. Just ask Liam Gallagher. The real question, however, is will the guys in INXS want a lead singer who's been painted as a backstabber by their own show? That doesn't really spell "comeback," does it? Anyway, on to the bottom three.
Neal, my early pick to win, is in danger of being sent home! What's with that? Looks like somebody besides Pete Townshend has tinnitus, and I reckon it could be me. Still, Neal's vicious performance of "Suicide Blonde" has frontman writtenread more
