Child star, Michael Jackson associate and now music career hopeful Corey Feldman is understood to be “astounded and devastated” that he wasn't invited to showcase at this year's BIGSOUND conference.
The massive music industry event features over 150 bands this year, but Feldman was overlooked and is livid. He originally had plans to launch his track Ascension Millennium, at a party where tickets were $250, unless you were a woman willing to wear lingerie, for whom it would be free.
A close friend of Feldman told SPA Confidential, “The Australian music industry is a fucking disgrace, all they do is bully artists like Corey. That fine, he doesn't need it. Talent will shine through.”
The story has taken something of a turn this afternoon however, with rumours emerging that Clive Palmer is set to launch a separate industry conference that will run in direct competition with BIGSOUND. Palmer is understood to also be fuming, but also over the allegations that BIGSOUND is actually a cover for a secret meeting of anti-Queensland terrorists.
SPA Confidential has it on wobbly authority that Feldman is set to be the star attraction at Palmer's rival conference, during which Palmer will interview himself in his underwear.
