A.M. Surf Report: Schwarzenegger Considers Paris Pardon; Smashing Pumpkins Fans Go Too Far

Plus: Kelly Clarkson fights to be heard; White Stripes answer 'last album?' question; Jadakiss' charity game is shut down.

The news happens all the time, even while you're enjoying your weekend. Check out this brief rundown to bring you up to speed this morning — a quick heads up from your friends at MTV News.

Here's what we've got:

"Austin Powers" lives! Mike Myers told us that there will be a fourth film in the comedy franchise — and this one will focus on Dr. Evil. Elsewhere in Movie File, Kirsten Dunst is determined to play Blondie's Debbie Harry ("We're both Jersey girls, and I think she's the coolest woman in the world."); Ashley Tisdale thanks fans for giving "Haunted High School Musical" a promotion to the big screen; and Antonio Banderas calls talk of him starring in "Sin City" sequel — direct from Robert Rodriguez himself — just "rumors." ...

Where Jermaine Dupri goes, will Janet Jackson follow? JD, the new president of urban music at Island, is pretty confident that the answer is yes. "Definitely Janet will end up at Island," Dupri told us. "That's without a doubt." In the meantime, Dupri reports that Jackson will have at least one song on Island, a track on the "Rush Hour 3" soundtrack. ...

And James Montgomery attempts to define "awesome" in this week's edition of "Bigger That the Sound." Sure, 50 Cent's commitment to physical fitness is awesome, but when it comes to the BTTS "Scale of Awesome," it isn't quite as, well, awesome as Digital Underground's "Humpty Dance" — or pirates. ...

Here's what everyone else is talking about:

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will give every citizen of the state a fighting chance, even those who are incredibly rich and famous. TMZ.com hit up Schwarzenegger's office with a Paris Hilton question: Will the governor listen to the call to pardon her? Hilton's plea will get the same attention as anyone else's, according to Schwarzenegger's press secretary — who warned that the governor only steps in "extraordinary circumstances." Hilton has also hired a new lawyer, according to TMZ. ...

Overexcited Smashing Pumpkins fans (or, in this case, thieves) lifted photos from the band's rehearsal studio last week, Pitchfork.com reports. The images — Zeitgeist album art? Video stills? Who knows? — were posted on Pumpkins fan site Netphoria.com and included a shot of Paris Hilton in front of a mushroom-cloud photo, the Grim Reaper standing at the U.S. president's podium, and Billy Corgan posing with a topless woman. We're digging into this story now, so check back later for any developments. ...

Is your boss hassling you? Kelly Clarkson may be feeling your pain — if you believe TMZ.com's story. The gossip site reports that there has been "deep tension" between Kelly and label mogul Clive Davis, with the two facing off over Clarkson's next album, My December — Davis wanted big changes but Kelly held her ground, according to TMZ's source. ...

Jack White wishes reporters would stop asking if the White Stripes are finished. "I'd venture to say that in 90 per cent of interviews, someone has asked us, 'Is this the last record?' " White told the NME — presumably after they asked if Icky Thump was the Stripes' finale. "It's almost as if people want us to stop!" ...

A charity basketball game that was set to include Jadakiss has been canceled, XXL.com reports. The fundraiser for Yerwood Center youth programs, scheduled for May 19 in Stamford, Connecticut, was called off when organizers received dozens of calls protesting Jada's appearance and criticizing his lyrics and criminal record. ...

Robert Rodriguez is about to take us back — either to a 1960s vision of the future or way back to the prehistoric age. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director is in talks to direct a live-action feature version of "The Jetsons" — the 1960s cartoon that predicted we'd all be zipping around in flying cars that fold down into briefcases before long. THR also reports that Rodriguez is considering a director job on "Land of the Lost," another film based on a kids' show, this one a 1970s live-action prehistoric adventure created by Sid and Marty Krofft. Will Ferrell is attached to star in "Land of the Lost," and there's no casting news on "The Jetsons" just yet.
