Loss Angeles, Ca - (Bad Ass Mess): Celeb culture magazine LAFagHagSlagMag has apologised unreservedly after a fake seedy review appeared slamming the Black Crowes album 'Whorepaint'.
The band complained after an entirely spurious review appeared in the magazine under the title Black Crowes/Raven Bonkers CD Bombs.
The spoof piece likened Whorepaint to 'lurid window-dressing for a suspect child grooming internet site now shut down by the LA vice squad.'
"It's true we'd never heard any of the album," the magazine's editorial said today, "let alone of the actual band itself."
The musicians have now filed for defamation damages in excess of $50 million in a case that will be heard by the same LA judge currently presiding over the Anthony Pellicano Hollywood corruption suit.
"Ouch!" was the only comment from the magazine's lawyers today.
