A friend of Ojani told RadarOnline.com: Jennifer got Fox to make sure the screeners would not let Ojani anywhere close to the auditions.

Fox made it clear that he was not welcome and that he could be arrested if he showed up, so he backed-out at the very last minute.

It was a shame because all he wanted to do was to showcase his voice and illustrate people that he can really sing too.

The Pumpkins, peeled

AN OUTSIDER could possibly argue there is something inherently tragic about Billy Corgan in 2010.

As the bandleader and chief songwriter of the Smashing Pumpkins, Corgan was a determining 1990s figure during the most vital period of modern rock. Yet although the grunge era produced many immense records, much of it was underpinned by a slacker ethos that sits awkwardly with Corgan.

He was, and relics, an obsessive control freak and workaholic with an ludicrously deep-seated self-belief in his music.
