Entertainment News: guns n roses
Police in Paris recently arrested a female model suspected to have been involved in the theft of some $200,000 worth of jewelry from Axl Rose, singer of Guns N' Roses.
The 50-year-old frontman's rock band is currently touring Europe and Israel. Police sources said three gold and diamond necklaces that belong to him were stolen during a Guns N' Roses after-party that followed the group's concert in Bercy stadium in Paris on June 5. Officers were called in to calm the situation after Rose became enraged over the theft, the Agence France-Presse news wire reported.

Viewers got a taste of a kinder, gentler Rose, known for largely avoiding the press despite a rare appearance on VH1's "The Metal Show" in November. On "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," he talked politics, answered questions about his past hairstyle, explained what makes him feel like an idiot, poked fun at his himself with regard to his tardiness at his own concerts.

Guns N' Roses, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Beastie Boys are among the bands set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, organizers announced on Wednesday, December 7.
The inclusion of Guns N' Roses raises the possibility of the band's most known musicians reuniting on stage for the first time in more than 20 years. Rock Hall inductions of the past have brought together former members of groups such as The Police and The Eagles.
Guns N' Roses is set to embark on a new mini-tour of several clubs, including three venues in New York during the city's annual Fashion Week.
The series of concerts kicks off on February 10 at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan and ends on February 24 at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The band, headed by original singer Axl Rose, had in 2011 toured the United States, performing at larger venues.
Axl Rose says he refuses to attend Guns N' Roses' Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony and "respectfully declines" his inclusion in general, saying in a long rant that his decision is personal.
Since the famed rock group was announced as one of the inductees of the April 14 event, fans and press have speculated about whether Rose, the only original member, would appear on stage with former band mates, such as guitarist Slash, for the first major reunion in about 20 years
Guns N' Roses, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Beastie Boys are among the bands inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14, 2012.

Others on the list are the Beastie Boys, the Cure, Donovan, Eric B. & Rakim, Heart, Freddie King, Laura Nyro, Rufus with Chaka Khan, The Small Faces/The Faces, The Spinners, Donna Summer and War. Who do you think is most deserving of the honor? Vote in our poll.
Guns N' Roses may release a new album soon, guitarist DJ Ashba says, adding that singer Axl Rose has a lot of things up his sleeve.
The rock group's latest album, "Chinese Democracy", has sold at least one million albums in the United States since its 2009 release but was not as successful as many of its previous records, such as "Use Your Illussion II" and "Appetite For Destruction".
