  • 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)
