METALLICA's Lawsuit Against NAPSTER Among Top 'Career Killers'

ABC ePrep is reporting that METALLICA's lawsuit against Napster is among the entertainment world's top career-killing moves — at least according to Stuff magazine.

As the Ottawa Sun notes, this month's issue of Stuff features an article listing Hollywood's Biggest Career-Killing Moves Of All Time. Says executive editor Dan Bova, "People become these huge stars and suddenly they believe that the universe revolves around them. We were looking for definitive moments when a superstar falls from grace and things go horribly wrong."

Also making the list: Paula Abdul allegedly giving "American Idol" contestant Corey Clark some private coaching; Michael Jackson's fondness for underage overnight guests; Ashlee Simpson's lip-synching gaffe on "Saturday Night Live"; and George Michael's arrest for lewd conduct in a public restroom.

Not long ago, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich explained that the band decided to take on Napster after a song they were still working on started to get airplay, and they traced the song to Napster. Lars said that he "felt kinda ambushed by the whole thing because I didn't really know enough about what we were getting ourselves into when we jumped."
