Last week, activist and U2 front man Paul David Hewson, who continues to insist that everyone call him Bono, was admitted to LMU University Hospital in Munich after suffering a moderate back injury. He is expected to make a full recovery, though U2's upcoming North American tour has been postponed for several months as a result. Though the band's publicists have been reluctant to reveal the exact cause of Bono's malady, the singer's doctors have been a bit more candid. Apparently, Bono was rehearsing a portion of the new stage show alone, naked, in front of a wall-sized mirror when the slowly building weight of his own ego became too much to bear. Spine specialists at LMU Hospital say that Bono's back troubles shouldn't be an issue in a few months and that he was lucky the incident happened in the presence of only his bandmates. Had the crush occurred in front of a full audience, Bono's ego would be unlikely to ever recover.
Dr. Drew Pinsky has been a regular on American TV ever since his debut on MTV's popular sex advice show Loveline in the mid 1990's. Since then, Dr. Drew has made a name for himself on such illustrious outlets as Celebrity Rehab on VH1 and a continued radio presence where he can further his cause to keep modern people as boring and conformist as possible. Dr. Drew Productions will aim for new reality TV shows that play to Pinsky's strengths, so be on the lookout for Help! I'm Being Exploited By An Entertainment Doctor Because I'm Famous next Fall and maybe even a midseason replacement tentatively titled Eww, Don't Do That, a show dedicated to Dr. Drew advising people to not engage in certain sexual acts because he personally finds them icky.
