    Two photographers are suing Denise Richards and Pamela Anderson for destruction of property. Richards and Anderson were in British Columbia, Canada when two photographers started taking their pictures. Richards reportedly threw the photographers’ laptop computers over the hotel balcony, called the men “”paparazzi scum,”” assaulted them and later lied to the police about the events. The twenty-minute debacle was caught on hotel security cameras. Too bad Richards didn’t assault them too.

    Disney is reconsidering releasing “”Song of the South”” on video in the U.S. after online petitions and public pressures have suggested that the re-release of this movie would be profitable. “”Song of the South”” is where the Disney song “”Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”” comes from and is also the basis for the Splash Mountain rides at Disney theme parks. Disney has been reluctant to release the film in the U.S. because it has been touted as racist due to it’s portrayal of black plantation workers in the movie.

    The ’80s cult classic “”The Goonies”” may not be the last place you’ll ever see the characters of Chunk, Data, and Mouth. The film’s director Richard Donner is actively trying to get a musical adaptation of the film to be produced. Said Donner, Steven (Spielberg) and I have discussed it and it’s something that I’m fairly passionate about right now.”” If a musical version of “”Goonies”” comes to fruition, then kids raised on the ’80s will be packed into the front rows like sardines, savoring every moment.

    Anthony Lovato, former lead singer of the disbanded punk group Mest, was arrested and released when he called the police about a stabbing in a parking garage. Lovato stabbed a 25-year-old man who had reportedly dated the same women that Lovato had. The man died at the hospital. Charges will not be filed against Lovato because there is insufficient evidence to prove that he didn’t stab the man out of self-defense. Now how “”mest”” is that?

    Rapper Busta Rhymes, born Trevor Smith, is now facing trial on two assault charges. Rhymes is said to have kicked and punched a former employee after Christmas last year, and to have assaulted a fan that allegedly spit on his car after a performance in Amsterdam. If convicted, Rhymes could spend a year in jail for each assault charge and be fined $500. Look for more assault charges on Rhymes since $500 is petty cash to him and hardly a deterrent for criminal behavior.
