Nicolas Cage a Vampire?

Is Nicolas Cage a modern day vampire living as an actor? One eBay seller thinks so and has proof. Well, kind of. Jack Mord has placed a Civil War-era photograph on eBay of a man that bares an uncanny resemblance to the Oscar-winning actor. The problem is Mord believes the man is Cage and that he is a vampire. Huh? Mord writes in the description, “Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of walking undead/vampire, et cetera, who quickens/reinvents himself once every 75 years or so.” Mord states that the photo has not been manipulated and is asking a staggering $1 million as a starting bid for the old timey photograph. The imaginative eBayer thinks Cage will abandon his actor persona and in “150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult or a talk show host.” Mord might be right, but who, apart from Cage, will be around to say?

According to reports from TMZ, rapper 50 Cent is being taken to court for an alleged violent attack on a woman at his residence in Connecticut. Though facing legal trouble, Fiddy was reportedly not present when the alleged crime took place, with the lawsuit pointing to Dwayne McKenzie as the culprit. According to the lawsuit, plaintiff Vasti Ortiz is claiming that she was invited to a shindig at 50 Cent's pad where McKenzie supposedly made "graphic and vulgar" sexual passes at her and when she tried to exit the event, Ortiz claims she was beat up by another female while McKenzie held her down against her will. Damn. [TMZ]

Kings of Leon Get Slammed by Their Own Opening Act

In a recent interview with, Drums singer Jonathan Pierce opened up about what it was like touring with rock behemoths Kings of Leon and why he wasn’t really all that impressed with the band in the first place. "I would advise them to split up and stop making music,” he bluntly told the site. “I don't think they're really helping anybody - they've never made a song that's really touched me in any way.” To make matters worse, Pierce hit the band with one of the lowest blows possible. He stated: “I honestly think that the new Britney Spears record is better than their songs. They're very American bar rock and it's not interesting, it doesn't affect me at all." Wow. [Click Music]
