I don't know what's more amusing: the media pissing contest currently going on among Scissor Sisters, Trans World and Universal Records, or the head of steam that the Velvet Rope know-it-alls built up over it. The Velvet Rope is such an annoying place that I usually don't visit the music biz gossip Web site, except when someone sends me a link to something going on there. But since the mainstream press uses it to keep abreast of industry gossip, it often plays the role of catalyst in whipping up a media frenzy over some issue or other.
