Following a Def Leppard/Poison show at an amusement park in upstate NY, a local community blog posted the following description of who'd been arrested, and why. It made us laugh so hard we choked on our coffee. Here's our favorite five, but we highly recommend clicking through to read the rest:
The king of pop is dead. Meet the Princess.
DEMI LOVATO is
When DEMI LOVATO took the stage at Agganis Arena earlier this evening, the only top trending topic on Twitter that was not related to Michael Jackson's death was PRINCESS PROTECTION -- a measure of how many girls were, at that very moment (and still as of this writing), tweeting their faces off while watching the Disney Channel debut of Princess Protection Program, Lovato's first big feature production.
iamdiddy Michael Jackson showed me that you can actually see the beat. He made the music come to life!! He made me believe in magic. I will miss him! 25 Jun 2009 from web iamdiddy Check out this tribute to Michael Jackson feat Myself, Game, Chris Brown, Polo, Mario Winans Boyz II Men http://tinyurl.
Asia Chandler, host of Big City 101.3 FM's "Morning Mayhem" show, has put out a call asking supporters to march on One Herald Square at 4 pm -- right now, basically -- to protest today's Boston Herald cover.
ASIA CHANDLER is outraged about the Boston Herald cover this morning and is on her way to One Herald Square to boycott!!!! Join me, the Big City fans, and all the media sources I can reach out to this afternoon at 4pm, right outside the Herald as we peacefully demonstrate that these blatant forms of bigotry are no longer accepted by the Black community in Boston and we mean it! Michael Jackson was an icon and should be respected!
NKOTB were in Motown last night, so there was no way they couldn't pour one out for Michael. We're not huge NKOTB fans, but given the town, the audience, and the enormous debt those guys owe to the man, the boys kept it classy.
THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED: for front pages from around the world, check Newseum. Hey Calgary Sun: great minds think alike, eh?
1. What the hell happened? Autopsy results expected imminently. But so far the leading contenders appear to be painkillers and anorexia, although Fox News is throwing Lupus into the mix just for good measure.
Michael Jackson dead. Bastard is such a fame whore: couldn't even let Farrah Fawcett have her day.

Presumably one of the perks of being on network television every night is the chance to gain exposure with a larger audience. And so the Roots, who've been serving as house band on the (improving) Late Night with Jimmy Fallon since its inception, used last night's show as an opportunity to premiere the title cut from their forthcoming album How I Got Over (as promised). And it's pretty good! Not that the Roots have ever had trouble translating live.
Also in the world of late-night television last night, Wilco showed up on Conan and St. Vincent brought her anamatronic-like stage moves to Letterman. Both videos after the jump.
