'Rock Star: Supernova' co-host Dave Navarro is blasting a gossip report from Janet Charlton claiming that Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke, and Jason Newsted have already selected Lukas Rossi to front the band. "Damn there are some funny rumors around regarding the show," Navarro writes. "First of all, I don't know who Janet Charlton is, but I do know who she isn't. She aint no Perez Hilton, that's for sure. At least with Perez, you get humor and the rumors are at least based in SOME fact. He leaves it up to the reader to do the dance between the two. As for Janet, she just kind of sees what sticks. Well, with Rockstar, she doesn't have a clue as to what she is talking about. If she has an inside source... Name it! Come on! I dare you! Name it! If you don't know what I am talking about... She has claimed that she knows who the winner is. Trust me... Nobody knows until it's over."

In other news, "Rock Star: Supernova" suffered a controversial elimination after Ryan Star was sent packing. Fans were outraged at the move and the problems that plagued the show's online voting system at Rockstar.MSN.com. Before the results show even aired, show co-host Dave Navarro posted, "I have nothing to do with MSN!!! Don't know what to tell ya! I'll know more when I get to work tomorrow about the voting fiasco." In a follow-up post, The Panic Channel guitarist addressed the controversy for a second time, writing, "As for the voting issue. This is MY site. It is not an offshoot of MSN. You got a problem with voting? Take it there. Write to them. I host this, pay for it and update it myself. As I said before...I don't know what the problem is."

i would like to say that these things happen and we all know their going to happen. its reality. its life. in my opinion , if i may comment , is that ryan should still be in the running. yes , the fans voted from around the world that put ryan in the bottom three , but in a major respect to supernova , their the ones
who made the final cut.if i am give my own , just me , opinion , i believe storm should have been
elimidated. its to bad that when it started all the singers could have won and made up a 20 people
rock group , because there was and is so much talent there , but only one can stay. good luck to
you all. don.

Supernova was right to remove Ryan. He was REALLY trying to be a rock star, and the fact they we could all see he was really TRYING meant that it wasn't his thing. He's a great singer, fine performer, and brilliant soloist. Not a frontman who IS a rocker. Toby, Dilana, Lukas, Magni are real!

Supernova did not need to have Billy Joel (Ryan) fronting their band. I'm glad he's out.

I think it was pertty obvious by the look on Tommy Lee's face that they had made a grave error in eliminating Ryan over Storm or the subconsciously angry Dillana. Their logic made about as much sense as teh US being in Iraq. "You've shown the best development ever, as a singer, in the 2 yrs this show has been on TV......so you've gotta go." Great logic, Tommy....it may well have been a very serious error.

Ryan had to go...many of us were sick of his pained looking face every time he performed. Lucas isn't the right fit either for SuperNova. While I once felt it had to be Toby or Dilanna, now I think serious consideration should be given to Storm or Magni. Storm has great looks and vocals, right attitude and could just be the right thing to shine a bright spotlight on the aging but loveable rockers.

LUKAS IS there man. Tommy said it the first time he sang -- 2 words "ROCK STAR". They have probably known it would be him from day 1. Don't get me wrong, the other singers are all good in their own right, they just shouldn't be fronting Supernova.

DILANA she has a great voice a great look as well as interacts with the people and connects no matter what she performs.thats a rare and special energy. Shes a natural and is it really a bad thing she was a little to honeast with her thoughts at not quit the perfect time. Though as TOMMY said he he hasnt always said or done the rt. thing either....So give it a break this is about the muzic ..yea the others are awesome BUT SHES THE ALL AROUND BEST FIT FOR THE BAND ....And she doesnt have to be the best writter shes the front man or women if you will ???? AND SHE CAN HANDLE THAT NO QUESTION WITH A UNIQUIE STYLE AND VOCAL YOU ALWAYS WAIT FOR....SHE ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's too bad, but I don't think a lot of people are getting over what happened with Dilana. She really does belong with the band. I really like Magni though. As long as it's not Lukas!!! I think he sucks so bad. Oh well, we'll see next week.

There are few things that need to be said....like Who is Gilbey Clark??? He covered for Izzy or Slash with GnR. So what. Lukas is a wanna be who can't sing. He thinks his goofy looking hairdoo will do it for him. Anyone else notice that the Supernova originals haven't been that good. I believe Nicky Six did the writting for the Crue and it wasn't Jason who wrote for Metallica...in fact they tossed him out of the band. Dilana has the best voice and stage presence and should win this "competition" but probably won't.

I can't beleive that Supernova picked Lukas? I agree with the other posting that Supernova didnt really do much for me with their originals. I had to do a search to even know what Gilby's music background was. Don't think I will be a fan. I liked Dilana's whiskey voice and stage presence.

Have not really been keeping up with this show.But allow me to chime in.Gilby replaced Izzy.Izzy was the 1st to get sick of Axl & thierfore the 1st to leave.Jason was kicked out of Metallica for doing a side project without James and lars's permission.Rumor has it he may have actually quit.In any event this is part of what lead to the therapy of James and eventually the whole band.I hear some of the actual contestant's are good but I'm not in any hurry to find out.

I can't believe Lukas won! Everyone was better than him! Well I'm not buying their cd. Plus they have to change their name, because the original Supernova will sue. Oh well, it doesn't matter, their gonna suck anyway. Miss you Magni.........

Gilby did replace Izzy. The point is Izzy wrote just about all of the songs GnR ever did before he left the band. Dilana was not chosen because she would have been the star and the so called mediocre Supernova would have been her back up band. The boys egos couldn't handle that so they chose Pukas.

DAVE, you & SuperNova NEED to check out the poll that is ongoing at the rockstar SN website....Whether or not Lukas was the right choice. Problems with the choice, Mark Burnett needs to check out the fact that results don't jive with the band's choice. The integrity of the show is being constantly called into question and worse, the integrity of the band. The fans, they are a 'turnin'' !

I agree with what so many of you have written: (a) Lukas was my last choice. Does have talent, but not the type I enjoy, infact I was uncomfortable with his performing...(b) Think Dilana incredibly talented. She's a modern-day Janice Joplin with an amazing and unique voice and stage presence. Much better for her to do her own thing and be hugely successful. Loved the show though. Thought it was really well done. Also think Storm would have been a great asset for Supernova, but again she's better off doing her own thing. She's another huge talent that could go a long way.

My son cleared up the whole issue about Pukas. They picked Pukas because he appeals to the EMO crowd. Supernova will do 1 album to sell as many copies as they can...then break up. Makes sense to me. If they were going to do an album that followed in the footsteps of their lineage they wouldn't have picked Pukas. You wouldn't be able to hear him over the band. His voice just isn't strong enough.
