Paul McCartney makes his ex "suicidal, suicidal"

Lance Bass

LANCE NEVER LOOKED SO HAPPY ON HIS WEDDING DAY. N*SYNC's Lance Bass traded his dignity for booze in Las Vegas.

• It looks like Fergie needs to review the terms of copyright infringement. The instrumentals from the song “Voodoo Doll” off her debut album sound eerily similar to the 2001 song “Waterfall” by Groundation. The Dutchess and fellow band member will.I.am produced the song together and have yet to comment on this apparent “coincidence.” Hopefully they received some sort of permission to use the track; otherwise the Black-Eyed Peas may soon live up to its name if Groundation comes knocking.

• One of the remaining forefathers of rock ‘n’ roll, Paul McCartney, has his knickers in a twist. The beloved Beatle is in a heated divorce battle with estranged wife, Heather Mills. According to sources, Mills claims she has tapes of the couple’s marriage counselling sessions " tapes that apparently reveal McCartney confessing to beating his former wife Linda and expose his true feelings towards Yoko Ono. In addition, Mills confessed on national TV that she may be suicidal. Bet she wishes she’d packed a bigger shovel!

• It seems the White House isn’t interested in attracting any more laughs at its expense. Comedian Stephen Colbert was left off the Democratic ballot in his home state of South Carolina this past week, putting an end to his bid for office in the upcoming U.S. Presidential Election. Colbert was excluded on grounds that he wasn’t a viable candidate nationally and that he wasn’t serious enough. If those were the criteria to run for President, how did Bush make it onto the ballot in the first place?

• Former N*SYNC-er Lance Bass recently admitted he married a friend at a Las Vegas chapel in 1999. The kicker? They did it for the free booze. “People do stupid things in the heat of the moment. In fact, the only reason we did it is because we wanted to get free drinks all night ... and we didn’t get one.” C’mon Lance, did you really think you were fooling anyone that night? The closet door’s been open for longer than you think.

• The new Mr. Price is Right is on the pro-medicinal marijuana campaign train. Comedian and game show host Drew Carey supports the fight for a greener tomorrow, stating, “I think it’s clear by now that the federal government needs to reclassify marijuana. People who need it should be able to get it, safely and easily.” Though a tad different than his predecessor Bob Barker’s “Control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered” slogan, Carey’s reefer-rights message will no doubt receive high acclaim from viewers.
