Damsel in Distress
BOSTON, MA Friday Oct.7.2005 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- Meet the FML Insider: Learn about Tommy's 'breast-cam', discover who are Jamie O'Neal's heroes, learn a country secret and tales from a 'bullet in a bible.'
Tommy Lee has now done it all. He's been married to Pam Anderson, drummer for Motley Crue - of one of the most popular and successful hard rock bands of all time, has a concert 'breast-cam' and now, finally, Tommy Lee makes his debut on the FML. His solo disk Tommyland proves that he can even make fun of himself. That's proven on the track "Tired," with Joel Madden belting the sarcastic chorus: "Tommy got tired of Pamela, Ed got tired of Salma, Puffy got tired of JLo and Ben did too," working its way to the every man complaint, "I'm just tired of you." Meanwhile Tommy is teaming up with Anderson and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals -PETA. Lee is set to lead an anti-fur protest in Las Vegas.

Damsel in Distress
In the past few seasons country artists have seemed to give players a knot to their label strategy. So today we are hooking you up with a country artist who may have some serious staying power. First up is the ultimate hero, country diva Jamie O'Neal. O'Neil's latest album is "Brave." Her current single is "Somebody's Hero" which is tribute to the women in her family. Additionally in the upcoming Desperate Housewives, soundtrack O'Neil has a written a single, 'Damsel in Distress' with her father and stepmother. O'Neil won't be singing the track, instead Idina Menzel, who stars in the highly anticipated film adaptation of Rent, will sing the ditty. Meanwhile Jamie O'Neil saw an increase of 357 percent in revenue generation.
