Five Gnarls Barkley covers: "Crazy" reaches epidemic proportions

We're talking cover versions, of course, but yeah, the covers of newspapers, too. In his first cover story since the one that got him fired from the Voice, ex-Pitchforker Nick Sylvester disrobes the Gnarls Barkley mystique and thoughtfully chooses all your summer songs, which include two by Nelly Furtado. Shortly after Mr. Sylvester turned these pieces in, the Phoenix fact-checking department discovered that "Crazy" was actually a song by Nelly Furtado, Ray Lamontagne, and Fat Greg Dulli. Mr. Sylvester was promptly placed on paid leave. Next in line to go "Crazy": Paris Hilton?
