A recent study of past and present pop music sought to rank the greatest singers of all time on the basis of their vocal range.

We think it's safe to say the results are... surprising.

Taylor Swift - #77
Taylor glammed up for the red carpet. Photos like this remind us why she's had so many boyfriends.

For example, if you can predict ahead of time which two crooners tied for the top spot, well then you, sir or madam, have quite the ear for music.

You should probably replace all three judges on American Idol and produce Caleb Johnson's first number one record.

In other words, you can't predict this list. No one can.

We've all got our ideas of what constitutes good and bad music and this list throws concepts like creative ingenuity, songwriting ability and stage presence right out the window and judges artists solely by the highest and lowest notes they can hit.

Somewhere, Rock & Roll induction committee members are collectively cracking a smile.

Axl Rose was starting to run on stage to sing "Sweet Child o' Mine" in concert on Saturday, only to trip and fall onto the stage. We're talking full on face plant.

Nevertheless, give the man credit for rallying hardcore. He not only got up and carried on like nothing happened, but launched into the song right on cue.

Don't you cry for Axl's November PAIN ... or some other non-terrible GNR-related joke.

Officials say Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was robbed of three gold-and-diamond necklaces worth over $200,000 after the hard rock band's concert in Paris.

A Paris police spokesman said that the lead singer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band - Axl declined the Hall of Fame induction - was fuming after the theft.

Whoever robbed Axl Rose is believed to have done so during a private gathering after the band's show at Bercy stadium the previous night, the police said.

Axl Rose should really have a cameo in Rock of Ages.

Judicial police have opened an investigation but the spokesman said it didn't appear that Rose was wearing the necklaces at the time his bling was pilfered.

The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because of office policy.

The GNR website says that they are scheduled to play in Moenchengladbach, Germany, before returning to France as part of a tour of Europe and Israel.

The tour runs through July 22. Use the safe between now and then, Ax.

Axl Rose has declined induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and requested that he not be inducted solo, as part of Guns N' Roses, or in absentia.

“I won’t be attending The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony and respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N’ Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame,” frontman Rose said in a letter ahead of this week's ceremony.

The rocker, who is reportedly dating Lana Del Rey, adds, “I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf.”

Guns N’ Roses, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Small Faces/Face, Laura Nyro, and Donovan are all set to be enshrined in Cleveland on Saturday.

Rose, who has had a long-running feud with Slash and several other former band members, doesn't really explain his reasoning for rejecting the honor.

Nor does his letter take any real cheap shots; it's actually rather polite. Axl's vague explanation continues with the following pseudo-explanation:
