DEAD JUGGALO FOUND IN OHIO RIVER AND OTHER LESS HARROWING GATHERING OF THE JUGGALOS UPDATES
The body of a 24 year-old Insane Clown Posse fan was found in a section of the Ohio River located in Western Kentucky on Sunday afternoon. He was wearing a Gathering Of The Juggalos wristband, which leads the Kentucky state police to surmise that he was attending the festival. Meanwhile, over at Deadspin, writer Emma Carmichael went undercover and transformed herself into a Juggalette and traveled to Cave-in-Rock, Illinois this weekend; she just published a hilarious and fascinating exposé of the festival largely comprised of “t*tties and drugs.” [Rolling Stone, Deadspin]

BLACK SABBATH PLANS REUNION TOUR, STUDIO ALBUM
Don’t call it a comeback! Original Black Sabbath members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward have reunited. Since the band’s split in 1979, Geezer has actually become a geezer, which is something we suppose is both ironic and inevitable. Nobody is talking about how much money they’re getting to do this, but we imagine it’s a lot. [Birmingham Mail via The Quietus]

LADY ANTEBELLUM, JANET JACKSON DROP OUT OF INDIANA STATE FAIR
After Saturday’s horrifying tragedy occured just moments before Sugarland were about to perform, other performers scheduled to perform at the Indiana State Fair have understandably gotten cold feet about their shows. Lady Antebellum and Janet Jackson have both outright canceled their respective shows, while Train and Maroon 5 are trying to figure out another venue where they can play for their fans. [AV Club]

NE-YO FLIPS KELLY ROWLAND‘S “MOTIVATION,” MAKES IT EVEN NASTIER
Everyone who’s heard Kelly Rowland’s ode to her own personal sexual gratification, “Motivation,” knows that it’s one of the dirtiest songs (in a good way!) getting airplay these days. Well, much like when JoJo took Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” and flipped it, the soulful crooner Ne-Yo has now responded to Rowland’s song, sans any sense of innuendo whatsoever. So, what’s his version hilariously straightforward response track called? “She Uses Me (Masturbation).” [Sound Of The City]
