  • Former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill gives a baffling, reggae- and ska-influenced show in Brooklyn, wearing a crazy pink clown outfit, furthering rumors that she’s bonkers. (Rolling Stone)

  • UK singer Lily Allen had her US visa canceled abruptly after being questioned for five hours at LAX, apparently because of her arrest in London in March after allegedly assaulting a photographer. (NME) Update: Her manager denies these reports, saying they’re “rubbish,” Allen is currently in Las Vegas and her September US tour dates are not in jeopardy. (Again, NME)

  • Busta Rhymes is sued for assault in New York after a 20-year-old man alleges he was beaten by the rapper and his posse after, uh, spitting on one of their cars. Lesson: don’t spit on a rapper’s posse’s car. (Billboard)

  • Universal Records threatens to sue US retailers for selling import copies of Amy Winehouse’s 2003 debut album, Frank, since they’re about to release it themselves… only 4 years after the fact. (Yahoo! Music)
  • DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

    without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

    In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

    If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
