We’re getting to the good part of American Idol, the section of the season where the real-deal contestants are left (and bizarre pop culture stuff starts to emerge). The fab four – David Cook, Syesha Mercado, David Archuleta, and Jason Castro – are trying their hands at tunes from the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame songbook tonight. Which singer do you think will feel most comfortable with that kind of classic material?
Better Still: Which singer is getting the boot on Wednesday night? Tell everyone why in “Comments.”
Some dude in Angola has learned not to f*ck with 50 Cent, or his diamond chains! A concert-goer was arrested after he hopped up on stage at a concert in Angola and ripped Fiddy’s bling off his neck. The robbery stopped the show, and 50 allegedly hopped in the audience and punched the dude. Other reports reveal that the dude got away but was eventually arrested after his parents turned him in. Nice work, rents! The whole thing was caught on a camera phone, because that’s the way the world rolls these days. Check out the clip above to watch the whole thing go down. [via Bossip]
Britney Jean Spears is set to actually make an appearance at a custody hearing today, and will reportedly ask the judge for more time with her sons Sean and Jayden. If she can remain mentally stable (no caffeine, girlfriend!) and brush her hair a bit, we think the judge should rule in her favor! Brit may be still be a bit crazy, but she’s currently clocking in low on the train wreck scale – a big improvement from her disastrous days earlier this year! We’ll be rooting for her – and for the stylist who does Brit’s hair, make up and clothes on the set of How I Met Your Mother(pic above). We hope Brit hires you for everyday help! [PopCrunch]
LaLohan is being accused by a Columbia University student of stealing her super-expensive fur coat from a club earlier this year. Whoopsie! Masha Markova and LoLo both attended a private birthday bash at a NYC club in January, and Markova’s coat disappeared from the table the two were sharing with mutual pals. Masha did a little web-searching and later discovered pics of Linds wearing the coat that night! After contacting the club she eventually got her coat back, but it reeked of booze, ciggies, Lohan BO and sadness (we assume). Now she’s suing the sticky-fingered starlet for $10,000 – the cost of “renting” the mink for three weeks.
Sigh. This isn’t the first time Lindsay’s been accused of stealing sh*t she could easily afford to buy herself. Is her life that sad that she needs to get her kicks snagging other people’s swag? Oh right – she was in I Know Who Killed Me. Yep, pretty sad! [NYP]

The great thing about Kanye West is that he’s either severely hot or cold about something. Lukewarm just ain’t his thing! So it was no surprise that the man-diva got a little pissed when Entertainment Weekly grade his recent tour a B+ – a grade I would have killed for in grade school/high school/college/life. Kanye went for the mag’s jugular on his blog, writing, “Ya’ll rated my album sh*tty and now ya’ll come to the show and give it a B+. What’s a B+ mean? I’m an extremist. It’s either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f*ck you and the whole f*cking staff!!!”
He then also called them “f*cking trash.” Damn. I rate that rant a A+! Later he calmed down a bit in a post about his Houston show that went awry. “Unfortunatelyfor certain media outlets, you will never be able 2 ‘MichaelJackson’ me,” he wrote. “That means 2 make it seem like everything I do is so weird or out of place… they always try 2 make it seem like everything is about my ego! That joke is getting old.”
It is? Cuz we’re still laughing.
