Moscow court to hear Pussy Riot appeal -- UPDATE

A Russian court is set to hear an appeal filed by three jailed members of the rock band Pussy Riot, who have been sentenced to two years for performing a “punk prayer” against President Vladimir Putin at Moscow’s main cathedral.

A day before Monday’s hearing, the Russian Orthodox Church said the rockers would deserve mercy if they offer repentance for their stunt. The move followed a statement by the Russian premier, who said that keeping them in prison any longer would be “unproductive.”

The calls reflected an apparent desire by both the government and the church to put an end to the case, which has caused international outrage. It remained unclear whether the women would offer penitence sought by the church and how much leniency a court may show. UPDATE: The hearing has been postponed until Oct. 10. Full details below.

Billie Joe Armstrong rants at the iHeartRadio festival: 'I'm not f--ing Justin Bieber'

No one tells Green Day when they’re leaving the stage and gets away with it. (At least not without a few smashed guitars and a whole lot of expletives.)

While performing at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas on Friday night, punk rocker Billie Joe Armstrong threw a tantrum when a sign reading “1 minute” suggested that his band should wrap up their set.

Feeling like they were being cut short (it remains up for debate whether the band was, in fact, cut short, but some believe that Green Day’s set was lessened by 20 minutes after Usher’s ran over), Bille Joe launched into an all-out rant that’s all kinds of amazing to watch.

“You’re gonna give me one minute?!” he yelled, distraught, into the mic. “I’ve been around since f–ing nineteen eighty f–king eight, and you’re gonna give me one minute?! You’ve gotta be f–ing kidding me!”

“I’m not f–ing Justin Bieber, you motherf–ers!” he continued. “Let me show you what one f–ing minute f–ing means,” he said before smashing his guitar on the ground, flicking the bird to the powers that be, and storming off the stage.
