Rock Star Lesson No. 6: Don’t keep drugs on your tour bus. Unfortunately, Lil Wayne had to learn that one the hard way. The prolific rapper’s tour bus was pulled over in Yuma, Arizona late last night when border patrol officials found a .40-caliber pistol, 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy and various drug paraphernalia. The DEA was immediately called, and Lil Wayne (real name Dwayne Carter) was taken into custody and charged with possession of cocaine and ecstasy. Two associates of Wayne’s were also arrested.
This is Carter’s third arrest in four months; previously he was taken into custody on weapons charges in New York, and for an outstanding warrant in Idaho.
Rocker Lenny Kravitz recently offered up a little bit of TMI in an interview with Spin magazine, claiming that he hasn’t not had sex – none – in over three years. He croons, “[It's] just a promise I made until I get married. Where I’m at in life, the women have got to come with something else, not just the body, but the mind and spirit. It usually trips them out, but that’s the way it’s going to be. I’m looking at the big picture.”
So basically, what Lenny wants to know is: are you gonna go his way, ladies? We respect the guy’s renewed celibacy, but we have to be honest. Wouldn’t it be kinda hard for him to find someone new to sleep with if he was looking? His alleged lady roster includes: Lisa Bonet , Adriana Lima, Devon Aoki, Natalie Imbruglia, Vanessa Paradis, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Penelope Cruz and Nicole Kidman - nevermind the other less famous ladies who have been there and done that. So maybe Lenny’s just taking a break because his lady well has finally run dry. [NYP]
We rejoin American Idol at its first-ever San Diego auditions, where 12,000 hopefuls lined the sunny streets to warble their mostly off-key way to fame. The San Diego auditions highlighted the capriciousness of Idol–what works for some is poison for others. Let?s take a look:
First of all guys, f*ck you, because I’m the only sideways mustache on a chin – a chin! – that you’re ever gonna see in your life. That alone right there proves how awesome I am. But if that isn’t enough, let’s just say I am attached to the dude who is currently trying to make babies with Britney Spears. Yeah I said it - she wants his baby. Because Brit wants a tot that can rock a stache like this, dudes. For reals. Maybe you saw my main man Adnan Ghalib on TV last night, looking all sexy and smug and babbling about how he wants to marry Britney. Well it’s true ya’ll, they love each other, and I get to go along for the ride. Click here if you want to see my sexiness in action (oh and Adnan too, chatting about the
paycheck love of his life). Finally, I want to respond to the billions of inquiries I’ve received as to how I look so good. My secret is this: I’m actually a Brazilian bikini wax, just done on a chin. Slam!

Denise Richards Casts Her Kids in Her Reality Show

‘Ello mates! This ‘er is the British accent version of your daily Britney Spears update! Things got bloody crazy this weekend, after Britney reportedly dumped her snogging partner, photog Adnan Ghalib. Her mate Sam Lufti even claimed to have a restraining order against the lad! The lass finally wised up to Adnan’s dodgy ways, but it looks like her brief moment of intelligence came too late. The snake is already trying to sell text messages Brit sent him from her mobile, and the messages reveal that the singer wants to be a teacher! What a daft bugger!
A knackered-looking Brit got over her heartache by keeping busy – she worked on a dance routine for her new video and even managed to make it to her court-ordered deposition! But our personal fave moment came when British Britney told a homeless chap who was begging her for help, “You would rather be homeless than be me, sir!” What cheeky bollocks! We’d take her insane brain if it meant getting close to all that cash – and we’re gonna guess our hobo pal feels the same. Enjoy her rant in the video above. Cheerio!
Another day, another name for Diddy. The artist formerly known as P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, and J. Lo’s boyfriend has decided to go by Sean John, his birth name, for the foreseeable future. ?I have always evolved and taken a different name each time. Right now I want to be Sean John because that?s where I am right now,? said the remix inventor, according to the Daily Star. So what could this mean for the many-monikered rapper? A new album? Another cologne? Sean John might be preparing his new image for his brand new reality television show.
Here’s a new Amy Winehouse home video to brighten your day. In it, the singer continues her Self Destruction 2008 Tour by smoking from a crack pipe and talking about how she just took six Valium. The whole thing is recorded by a friend who then sold the video to the British tabloid The Sun, which should be a lesson to all you famous crackheads out there. If a pal is taping you inhaling/snorting/injecting/smoking/eating drugs, tell them to shut that sh*t off! Learn something from Amy Winehouse – something other than just drugs being bad, obvs. [The Sun]

On Tuesday we sang the praises of the beer-loving Aussie dude who dismayed his ‘hood with a wild-ass college-age throw-down, and earned himself some Net notoriety when he stood tall against a haughty news anchor who tried to discipline him on camera. A lesson was learned by stoner rebels everywhere: if your glasses are “famous,” keep ‘em right on your nose.
So did our man Corey Worthington shrink away and mumble apologies to family and friends once the dust settled? Hell, no. He dodged his parents, accepted more interviews and set up his next bash. Currenly he is mulling over sizable hosting fees, a la Linds and Brit.
What kind of music you think Corey Worthington listens to?
