Lil' Wayne LOSES Lawsuit Over Qunicy Jones III Documentary!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersLil WayneHealth

It looks as though Lil' Wayne's recent HIGHlarious behavior during his deposition may have cost him his lawsuit against Quincy Jones III!

As we've reported, the rapper sued the son of Quincy Jones over his Weezy-centric documentary, Tha Carter, for using music from his album Tha Carter III without proper permission…and from what we hear, not being too pleased with the way in which he's portrayed!

However, as Wayne was unable to make the court date for the trial, as the day he was supposed to testify he was hospitalized after suffering seizure-like symptoms mid-flight! Therefore, all his lawyer had to show the jury was his aforementioned deposition…and we all know how THAT went!

But just in case you don't, dear lord, please watch (above)!

LOLz! AH-mazing!

But not TOO helpful in a court of law!

As a result

50 Cent Calls Redrum Sampling Lawsuit A Bunch Of Bull

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters50 Cent

50 Cent isn't denying the fact that he sampled a song called Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out by The Persuaders, but he doesn't think that he can be sued for it either.

The rapper is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit from a man named Robert Poindexter, who's accusing him of using the soul tune without permission to create Redrum, a track he handed out to fans for free online.

50 is denying any copyright infringement and doesn't even think Poindexter actually owns the rights to the song in the first place.

Mitt Romney Wants To End Hospital Visitation Rights For Same-Sex Couples

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack ObamaSad Sad

In 2010, Barack Obama signed an executive order that mandated any hospital receiving federal funding to recognize and respect same-sex relationships.

That means after years and years of gays and lesbians being denied one last meeting with their partner before dying or undergoing a life-threatening operation, the LGBT community finally got the visitation rights they deserved.

Although Mitt Romney hasn't been very clear about anything his stance on the issue over the last two decades, one of his top advisors made it pretty dang clear he would repeal any equality that Obama has instituted.

While clarifying his strong support for a federal ban on same-sex marriage, Bay Buchanan declared he would leave other LGBT issues up to the states and explained:

A federal court ruled this week that Katherine Jackson's business associate, Howard Mann, violated Michael Jackson's copyrights on his intellectual property.

In English, that means that this Howard guy was using MJ's trademarks, copyrights, name, likeliness and other things to make a profit.

Rude!

Candace Cameron supports chick-fil-a

We thought Danny Tanner raised you better, gurl!

Candace Cameron, who played DJ Tanner on Full House and plays Kirk Cameron's sister in real life, took to Twitter on "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" to show her full support for the company's beliefs bigotry.

Sure, the owners don't want a significant portion of the American population to be happy or share some of the same legal rights that straight people enjoy, but that's okay because, as Cameron captioned her picture:

"We love chikin!"

Ugh! Obvi this Chick-fil-A controversy has polarized the nation and every one is picking sides. We get it if you can't give up fast food for a cause. After all, it's pretty addicting stuff. However, we don't understand why people are so proud that they ate at the chain despite a boycott.

We're thrilled that this became a national issue because
