The pill's favorite Seattle synthpop kids Natalie Portman's Shaved Head -- who killed it with us in August 2008 -- are breaking up with Natalie Portman. Yeah yeah, guess the actress wasn't fond of the band name, and I guess recently they have been going by the more obscure NPSH.
Now they are called BRITE FUTURES -- but not before breaking up with Nat-Nat on YouTube. Band statement after the best name-change-gimmick-by-a-band-with-a-gimmicky-name-ever:
Said the new Brite Futures:
“We chose our band name on a whim when we were still in high school, and ‘Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head’ has seen us through an unexpectedly amazing four years. Our love affair with Natalie’s name was like a summer fling that lasted… and lasted… and lasted… But now it is summer once again, and time for a change. Also it has recently come to our attention that our muse Ms. Portman is not so keen on us using her name in ours… Ultimately we are lovers, not fighters, and our mamas didn’t raise no fools, so we feel it is time to move forward with a new name. We are BRITE FUTURES. Ps no hard feelings Natalie. You remain +1 on every guest list.” --Brite Futures
