Good for you, 50!
We def respect the things you've had to say about DJ Mister Cee!
This doesn't mean that Curtis Jackson is supporting the public display of a lewd act, what DJ Mister Cee was actually arrested for, but rather he's coming to the defense to support Cee being caught with a man!
We'll just let Jackson explain himself:
"It's only entertaining because he means that much to hip-hop culture. I recognize Mister Cee as the guy who offered us Biggie, so he means that much to the culture. And a lot of the kids that hear the radio don't see him the same way.
"Who is to judge you when there's an audience — that is probably one of the strongest audiences, if you look at Lady Gaga's career — that says that that's fine?" says 50, speaking about the gay community. "If you say it's not fine, you're gonna get attacked. You're gonna write apology notes."
That's right! Nobody should be judging him on who he was with, as long as it was completely consensual and everyone is of age! What people should be focused on is the fact that a law was broken, not what sex the person was who broke it with him!
We gotta tell you, we weren't a big fan of yours after those offensive tweets, Curtis, but this is a great way to start getting us to come around!

…And that's you always get a room!
According to authorities, Hot 97 DJ/record producer Mister Cee was arrested in NYC last week for "receiving oral sex from another man" in a car.
Cee aka Calvin Lebrun and his sexual partner Lawrence Campbell were "charged with public lewdness and exposure of a person."
They're both due back in court in June.
Keep out of trouble, Mister Cee! And spring for a hotel room next time…might as well spend the money on that, instead of all the fines that will be coming your way.

During a recent interview, songwriter Heather Bright called out certain artists for their "shady songwriting practices."
Here's Heather on whether or not artists take publishing credit and money, even if they didn't write their own songs:
"It depends on who you are. Rihanna takes publishing, Justin Bieber takes publishing, Kanye West takes publishing. On all the stuff that they don’t write, they take publishing."
Heather on Justin Bieber's Somebody to Love writing credit (a song she wrote):
"Umm… How did he get a writing credit on it? That’s an interesting question. I don’t know. (laughs)"
And here Heather with some praise for artists who do, in fact, write their own songs:
"You can’t be Rihanna and be producing and writing records. You just can’t be doing that. You just won’t have time. All the appearances, the performances, and the ‘this,’ and the ‘that,’ you gotta show up to record, you gotta promote the album, go on tour. I mean, people like Lady Gaga – It’s amazing that they can find time to write! They have to write on tour, all of those artists who actually write!"
What do U think of Heather Bright's comments? Is something rotten in the state of

Might as well. They were going to fire him anyway! (And we don't think you can collect unemployment when you're terminated over a drug bust!)
This afternoon, David Schubert, the deputy D.A. of Las Vegas who prosecuted Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars for cocaine possession and then got himself busted on the same charge, resigned from his position.
Like we said, the D.A.'s office was already set to can him - they even locked him out of his office - so really, he was just beating them to the punch.
Eh, it's a good thing. It'll give you more time to consider your options - like what you're going to do when your former colleagues tear you to shreds in court when you have to answer for your crimes! Ha!
Yesterday, we reported that Jim Jones, the rapper, was busted by the police for driving with a suspended license. Now, sources have revealed to us the circumstances of his arrest and where he was headed to in such a hurry.
Turns out, Jim was headed to a music video shoot yesterday for Everybody Jones, the next single off his new album, CAPO. It was while he was en route that he was sagged by the police. Fortunately for him, the judge issued a desk appearance ticket and released him immediately. He'll have to reappear in court at a later date, but for now, he was able to fly to Chicago for a show.
So long as he didn't get away scot-free, we're cool with this. Do the crime, pay the price…at some point.

Dr. Giovanni Palumbo (Dr. of what, being creepy??) was arrested outside of the Canadian Juno Awards for violating conditions to keep the heck away from Shania Twain.
Twain was in Toronto accepting an award, what a way to blemish that!
Anyway, the stalker was picked up after someone in Shania's camp recognized him slithering around and trying to solicit a reporter into getting him a meet and greet with the singer.
Here's what happened:
“He was charged with three counts of failed to comply recognizance. Allegations were that he was seen at the Air Canada Centre on Sunday, March 27 during the Juno Awards. He was also charged with criminal harassment. Him being there within 20 meters of the victim was in breach. Therefore he was charged. He went to court the next day.”
The dude has had a long history for being in trouble involving the singer. What goes through someone's mind to just keep coming back for more??
Glad you're safe, Shania!

Jim Jones the rapper was arrested in NYC for driving on a suspended license! Not much else has been reported yet, but we hear that he's still in police custody.
Whomp whomp! Seems like an easy thing to avoid, Jim!
Make that phone call count!
