Woman convinced she’d marry Jon Bon Jovi gets walked down the aisle by the singer instead
It wasn’t quite a dream come true for Branka Delic, but it was close: The Bon Jovi superfan, who has apparently spent her entire life convinced that she’d marry the band’s singer, Jon Bon Jovi, was instead walked down the aisle by the frontman after a launching an online campaign aimed at convincing him to do just that.
And that is about as earnest as this story gets, because from here, it’s a lot more weird than it is heartwarming.
“For those who don’t know them, here is the back story,” reads the homepage of bonjoviwalkmedowntheaisle.com, which is what it is. “This is Branka: she has two loves in her life, Gonzo and Bon Jovi, but not necessarily in that order.” (Photo: David Bergman)

'They'll prostitute you for all you are worth': Sinead O’Connor's stark warning to Miley Cyrus
A young Sinead O’Connor with long, flowing locks was once offered a recording contract based on her commercial appeal, so she … promptly shaved her head.
Sinead went on to become one of the bestselling female artists of all time anyway. Now she’s offering up some free advice to pop star du jour Miley Cyrus, who as of late has been looking to buck her own commercial appeal with a new, short-cropped look.
“The music business doesn’t give a sh-t about you, or any of us,” Sinead writes. “They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it’s what YOU wanted … and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, ‘they’ will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone.” (Photo: Fred Tanneau/AFP/Getty Images files; Christopher Polk/Getty Images files)

'Lazy money': Montreal's Godspeed You! Black Emperor wins $30K prize, then lambastes gala's 'overlords'
Montreal group Godspeed You! Black Emperor are not ones to shy away from telling it like they see it — though, for the most part, they do it on their own terms. The group, which grants precious few interviews, largely lets the music speak for itself — with exceptions such as this 2001 screed written by bandleader Efrim Manuel Menuck in response to an unflattering profile in OOR.
Using that particular post as a starting point, Tuesday’s statement by the band slamming the annual gala for the Polaris Prize — which Godspeed won on Monday night — is an unsurprising one, despite its vulgarity and unabashed condemnation of the event.
“We are grateful, and yes we are humble and we are shy to complain when we’ve been acknowledged thusly,” the statement reads. “BUT HOLY SH-T AND HOLY COW – we’ve been plowing our field on the margins of weird culture for almost 20 years now, and ‘this scene is pretty cool but what it really fucking needs is an awards show’ is not a thought that’s ever crossed our minds.” (Photo: Eva Vermandel)

And the screams: enough to even rattle the Ai Weiwei instalments — the A-list dissident’s art — situated in another part of the building.The lucky birthday girl? Erica, the daughter of Alex and Simona Shnaider. And the Toronto party — peaking when Erica’s absolute favourite, Justin, arrived to serenade her — was in the wheelhouse, certainly, of her no-expense-spared dad.

Miley Cyrus makes Lady Gaga look tame in racy performance at MTV VMA’s — only to be upstaged by ‘surprise’ *NSYNC reunion
Justin Timberlake took over the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, wrestling the spotlight away from a rehabilitated Lady Gaga, an X-rated Miley Cyrus and a vengeful Taylor Swift with a medley of hits and the rumored reunion with former boy band mates *NSYNC.

Timberlake – the night’s top nominee with early leader Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – also was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award by Jimmy Fallon.

“I don’t deserve the award, but I’m not going to give it back,” Timberlake said. “I’m taking this home.” (Photos: Rick Diamond/Getty Images for MTV; Larry Busacca / Getty Images for MTV)
