Musto Weighs In On The Good Side Of Gossip

It is the cover story, the Tuesday Science Section of The New York Times, researchers say that gossip can serve as life‘s informal handbook on how to behave, clarifies unwritten rules among groups, and makes newcomers to a group feel less isolated. Michael Musto, columnist for the ‘Village Voice’, was on ‘Countdown with Keith Olbermann’ Tuesday to discuss the study. Asked about the source who told the tabs that Paris Hilton got rid of her Chihuahua when it got too big for her to carry, “That might not really be profound information but it helps you to understand larger topics like how she obviously traded in Nick Carter because he gained a few pounds.” As for Eminem playing tapes from Mariah Carey on his Anger Management Tour, Musto said, “He‘s not as skanky as he could be. He could have played a tape of her throwing plates and having a public meltdown a few years ago. And while he does actually puked into a toilet bowl… did you read about this Keith? — while he singing his song. Weren‘t we all doing that when we watched ‘Glitter’? he‘s just appealing to a commonality in all of us.” Read the transcript in full here (page down to the bottom).

    I don’t understand how immaturity and sleaze can get you anything out of life. A few laughs, maybe, but that’s it. Eminem needs to f**k off, seriously. And I’m not just saying that because of Mariah. He’s been dissing the girl for years now; I just hate him in general. Oh well, I guess her revenge is the lawsuit her rep said she’s about to file against him for defamation and the fact that her album has gone triple platinum while his has barely gone double.

    get your facts straight…’, ‘Hate defending a scuz like Eminem, but check things first. According to the RIAA, Mimi is double platinum. I have no doubt it will go triple, but not certified yet. Eminem’s last album Encore is quadruple platinum. Just go to or, click on searchable database, and search by artist. See for yourself.

    Um, darling, they certified it triple last month.’, ‘When it hit 2.4 million copies. Get YOUR facts straight. The RIAA released the certifications in a press release in late July, so sue them if they’re database isn’t quite up to date. Pink’s last album was recently re certified but the new cert isn’t in the database.

    Triple platinum is 3 million copies…’, ‘not 2.4 million. Billboard also still has it as double platinum as of last week: Again, I have no doubt it will be certified 3 million shortly giving the current sales. Here is the RIAA press release page: There is no such release in late July. Regardless of the current standing it still doesn’t change the fact that Eminem’s album is quadruple platinum.
