The reason for the second break-up was reportedly because Justin took that same pesky brunette dancer, Jenna Dewan, to Janet Jackson's birthday party. Hey J, what were you thinkin'? Why don't you write Dear Dish-it, she might be able to help you work out your love life.

    On the morning of May 23rd, Alien Ant Farm's tour bus smashed into a parked truck in Caceres, Spain, killing their bus driver. AAF's lead singer, Dryden Mitchell, was hospitalized with a back injury, bassist Tye Zamora with a foot injury, guitarist Terry Corso with a broken ankle and drummer Mike Cosgrove with cuts and bruises. Their manager and a few tour techs were also injured. Alien Ant Farm was supposed to return from their European tour for a gig in Washington, D.C. but were forced to cancel. That's gotta suck. Let's hope the guys feel better soon!
