It seems like TLC's T-Boz is none too happy about the modern musical environment, but girl is especially pissed off that Nicki Minaj is determining the talent of aspiring singers via her gig as an American Idol judge!

A MAJOR congrats to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the entire cast of Glee is in order!
After selling over 32 million digital copies of the songs performed on the hit FOX comedy, the cast of Glee has become the No. 8 digital artist of all time!
It's a pretty crazy accomplishment when you think about it. Who would have thought a television show would sell more songs then an actual music artist? It's the best of both worlds in the entertainment biz. All that's left to conquer is the film industry!

There's nothing like having a good time for a good cause!
Joe Sib, El Lay based comedian and host of 98.7's Complete Control Radio, hosted the 2012 charity golf game Duffers For Dollars.
A "duffer" may be a mediocre golfer by definition, but there is nothing mediocre about the money they raised!

Here's the crazy celebrity lawsuit of the day!!!
According to Soulja Boy, his former manager, Philip Ransom, took advantage of his fragile 16-year-old mind when he "coerced" him into signing contracts "contrary to industry standard."
These contracts give the record label he worked with 50% and Ransom 5% of any music profits he'll ever make on the songs he recorded under said management.
