First Dibs: Choreographer Claims Michael Jackson Molested Him

Britney Spears shares her struggles with keeping fit, Questlove contributes funds to save his high school’s annual play, and As I Lay Dying’s lead singer gets arrested.

  • Wade Robson, a choreographer known for working with megastars from Pink to *NSYNC, is claiming late legend Michael Jackson molested him as a child. The allegations are surprising because during the King of Pop’s 2005 child molestation trial, Robson testified that he and Jackson had a friendly relationship and nothing inappropriate ever took place.

  • Britney Spears proves she’s just like us in an interview with Shape magazine. The pop queen admits difficultly with maintaining a healthy diet and making sure her body stays right and tight. However, unlike us, she can just simply choose from dozens of her hits to create her workout playlist. [Daily Mail]
  • Budget cuts are leaving cities everywhere financially strapped, but Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson isn’t letting that affect his alma mater. The Roots’ drummer donated money to Philadelphia’s High School for Creative and Performing Arts after hearing that the school couldn’t afford its yearly theater production. [Okayplayer]
  • Tim Lambesis, singer of the Christian metal band As I Lay Dying, was arrested for allegedly plotting to kill his estranged wife. The Grammy-nominee apparently was seeking an accomplice, who turned out to be an undercover cop. [MTV]
