Picture gallery: music's biggest scandals

The world of music really is sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Well, we at The FIX think someone should add scandals to that tagline because, if you're a rock star, it seems a scandal is never too far away.

Check out our picture gallery of the biggest music scandals of our time and see which musos made the scandals list.

Australian Idol: semifinal 3 You know what? Andrew G — who introduces himself by his full name, Andrew Gunsberg, tonight — is doing a great job hosting Australian Idol solo. Seriously, I haven't even noticed James Mathison's absence. Keep up the fine work, G!

Anyway, Ashleigh Toole and Nathan Brake (who needs to lay off the hair straightener) are through to the top 12. You readers successfully tipped both of them, while I only got Nathan. So you guys have made three correct predictions, while I've only made two.

Separated at birth? Short Stack looks just like... So here at FIX HQ we were sitting around watching 'Sway Baby Sway', the clip from Short Stack's number one debut album Stack is the New Black, and we couldn't help but notice that bass player Andy Clemmensen looks a lot like another famous muso.

Rumour patrol: Gwyneth wants Chris Martin to quit Coldplay Completely plausible celebrity rumour of the week: Gwyneth Paltrow wants rocker hubby Chris Martin to quit Coldplay. How believable!

Gossip site Celebrity Betty "reports" that Gwyneth is pulling a Yoko Ono, and tried to convince Chris to ditch his band and go solo. According to a conveniently unnamed source, Chris was "furious" that she even suggested such a thing.

Australian Idol: semifinal 2 Andrew G kicks off by announcing that Stan Walker (who's wearing dumb glasses) and Kate Cook (who hilarious drops the S-bomb on live TV) are through to the top 12. I predicted Kate would make it, while you guys predicted Stan would. So, so far we're one-for-one.

And now onto round two!

Short Stack's giant leap to the top of the charts Short Stack have come a long way (see what I did there?)... all the way to the top of the ARIA chart.

The Central Coast three-piece scored the number one spot this week with their debut album Stack is the New Black, thanks to an insanely rabid a devoted fanbase that follows the band's every move via MySpace and YouTube.

Seriously, though, the boys — Shaun Diviney, Andy Clemmensen and Bradie Webb — deserve their success. I heard a story recently about how they ran some competition where they personally called up 1000 winners. No, I didn't accidentally type a few extra zeroes there. THEY ACTUALLY PHONED AND SPOKE TO ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE. That is hardcore.

Australian Idol: semifinal 1 Kudos to new judge Jay Dee (who I'm henceforth referring to as JD, because typing those extra four letters hurts my delicate fingers) for handling his first live episode of Australian Idol with calm grace. If I were in his seat I'd've been crapping myself.

Big changes are afoot this year: JD has, of course, taken over from Kyle; Andrew G is hosting the show solo for the very first time (okay, perhaps with a little help from Ricki-Lee); and the rules have changed so that you kids at home don't have to wait till the end of the show before you can vote. Surely that advantages the contestants who sing earliest, but whatever.

Australian Idol: and the new judge is... this guy! Hi, Jay Dee Springbett! You're the new judge on Australian Idol. Before that, you were the "senior director of A&R" (whatever that is) for Sony Music. You're heaps better looking than Kyle Sandilands so I reckon you'll go down a treat with the Idol audience.

... however. I'm bracing for an epic Jay Dee vs Dicko feud in future instalments. Two sarcastic Brits on the judging panel? This will only end in tears.
