  • After eight months of delays, Lil Wayne’s rap-rock crossover album Rebirth finally appears to have cemented a release date: December 15th. The album’s first single “Prom Queen” debuted back in late-January, followed by tracks like “Fix My Hat” and “Hot Revolver.” According to Reuters, guests on Rebirth include Drake, Lenny Kravitz, Travis Barker and Fall Out Boy.

  • My Morning Jacket will get the animated treatment on November 22nd as the Evil Urges crew provided their voices and likenesses to an episode of American Dad appropriately titled “My Morning Straitjacket.” Jim James and the rest of MMJ figure into the plot after the show’s main character becomes obsessed with the band, TwentyFourBit writes.
  • Not only is Joe Jackson seeking a monthly allowance from his son Michael’s estate, the Jackson patriarch is also reportedly trying to oust the co-executors named in Michael’s 2002 will, CNN reports. Joe Jackson’s lawyer contends that Michael’s signature on the will is questionable. The will reads it was signed July 7th, 2002 in Los Angeles, but family members claim Michael was in New York that day.
  • Justin Timberlake was granted a permanent restraining order against a woman who trespassed on the singer’s property claiming she was destined to marry Timberlake. Karen McNeil, an “obsessed and mentally unstable stalker” according to JT’s legal team, took a taxi filled with her own possessions to Timberlake’s home with the intention of moving in, despite never having actually met the FutureSounds star, the BBC writes.
