If Led Zeppelin plans to reunite, they have a funny way of saying it.

During a news conference Tuesday promoting their 2007 reunion concert film, “Celebration Day,” the band became uncomfortable with a question about “anticipating something bigger for the band.”

“We’ve been thinking about all sorts of things, and then we can’t remember what we were thinking about,” singer Robert Plant said testily.

At one point during the news conference guitarist Jimmy Page mentioned that the reunion concert was five years ago and that if there were a chance they were reuniting, you would have heard.

The film covers their 2007 reunion concert at London’s 02 Arena.

Pointing toy gun at dog really bites

“Jackass” star Bam Margera said he condemns animal abuse and didn’t mean any harm by a photo posted online showing him holding his pit bull puppy with a toy gun pointed to its head.

The 33-year-old Margera had posted the photo on Twitter, saying that if the dog made a mess in his bed again “Penny goes Bye Byes.” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Margera said he loves animals and wished he had made it more clear the gun was fake.

Margera said it was a joke.

Rapper backing Romney, Ryan

Kid Rock hasn’t been shy about supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan, even if it costs him some fans.

The rock musician introduced Ryan during a rally Monday night in Michigan. The rapper told the raucous crowd that he believes “you have to stand for something” even if it may alienate a few fans.

Dress price somewhere over rainbow
