Amy Winehouse falls apart on stage in Belgrade: Watch the video here

How was your weekend? No matter what you did, it probably went better than Amy Winehouse’s.

The troubled singer, who just wrapped up a stint in rehab, cancelled two upcoming dates on a brief tour after a disastrous performance in Belgrade.

After taking the stage an hour late at a festival in the Serbian capital, Winehouse stumbled around, fought with her microphone, only occasionally sang her own songs and talked a lot about how much she likes some of her band members more than others.

While the crowd at the show seemed to go along with her for a while, they eventually turned on her, sending boos and heckles in her direction. Naturally, much of it was caught on video:


Courtney Love tweets herself into another lawsuit, this time with a law firm

Some celebrities have made Twitter work for them; Courtney Love is not one of them.

The perpetually-embattled Hole mastermind just settled a Twitter-related lawsuit in March (she paid out $430,000 to fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir after making statements on Twitter and MySpace that suggested she had some sort of criminal past), and now she faces yet another defamation suit thanks to a tweet.

Lawyer Rhonda Holmes has filed a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court that Love libeled her and her firm following the termination of their attorney-client relationship in 2009 (she is seeking unspecified damages). Love had hired Holmes’ firm to recoup money she thought was stolen from the estate of her late husband Kurt Cobain.

When Love began to second-guess attorney Keith Fink’s strategy—and later when the firm demanded that Love refrain from substance abuse during their working relationship—Love fired them and walked away. She returned a few months later seeking their representation again, but Holmes declined to work with Love a second time. That was when Love fired up her Twitter account.


Justin Bieber goes Down Under, gets egged by Aussies

Justin Bieber is no stranger to having things thrown at him on stage (remember the infamous water bottle that wasn’t really a water bottle?), but some attendees at a Bieber show in Australia took the projectiles to new levels over the weekend.

While performing Friday night in Sydney, no less than half a dozen eggs flew towards the teen singing sensation. None of the Easter leftovers made contact with him, and he soldiered on with the show like a professional. Check out the video below.

“I didn’t speak with as much clarity as I would have liked,” Murphy explained. “Who am I to say, ‘F— you’? That’s not what I meant. I completely understand when artists don’t want a show or another artist to interpret their songs.” READ FULL STORY

Madonna's Raising Malawi scraps school-building project after sinking in $3.8 million

Lil Wayne loses his brain, head, and sleep in '6'7' video: Watch here

I don’t even know where to start with this video. It’s all over the place, beginning with an Inception reference as Lil Wayne is forced awake by being dunked into a tub filled with water. From the start, you’re led to believe that this clip, Weezy’s “6’7′” visual, will be a huge brain-racking adventure — as Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster adventure was. Then it gets literal, very fast. When he raps about how he’s lost his mind, he’s actually jumping after it. And when he spits, “Mind’s so sharp I’ll f— around and cut my head off,” rest assured the his skull’s going to hit the floor.

Watch the video after the jump.

Lil Kim's album cover depicts decapitation of Nicki Minaj-like figure

BLACK-FRIDAY-MIXTAPEThe feud between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj just got ugly. Rather, it’s gotten bloody.

The new album cover for Kim’s Black Friday, which has been available for purchase via PayPal since yesterday, leaves little doubt that the pink-wigged head on the floor is an allusion to Kim’s nemesis Nicki Minaj — although no one has confirmed, a.k.a. we can’t prove anything. What we can prove is the following: Cartoon Lil Kim likes swords and leather, cartoon Lil Kim knows how to use swords, and magically, cartoon Lil Kim has the ability to strike a pose before the blood splatter has hit the floor. Fascinating.

Calls to Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj’s camps have not been returned.

While we wait, what do you think of the cover, Mixers? Too far?
