George Zimmerman, the infamously acquitted killer of Trayvon Martin, is looking for boxing opponents and rappers Game or DMX have both applied to fight him. Apparently, Zimmerman also wants to fight Kanye West for "beating up defenseless people." The irony is choking me.
Once upon a time, I respected Lil Wayne's skills as an artist. But now he's added the cherry to the shit sundae that is his current career - contributing a verse to new labelmate Paris Hilton's new single, "Good Time." You can witness the horror for yourself by checking out a clip of the song in the replies.

This time around he discusses the struggles of having to raise himself as a child and if it hasn't become apparent yet, it didn't work out well. And if you missed it, Vice has written up a fantastic new piece about Ronnie and Falling In Reverse's new music video for "Alone." I highly suggest you take the time for this essential reading.
Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House on Friday, where he reportedly signed the guestbook: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
A site called RetiredArtists has popped up. Boasting musicians who have been in bands that were "signed and toured extensively, on labels ranging from Victory Records to Bridge 9 Records," the service offers discreet songwriting for the musically challenged.
