Miami police want to question Fat Joe as a possible witness to a shooting that left two men dead on Monday, The Miami Herald reports. Police believe the rapper may have been with the two victims, Lessli Paz and Joey Navarro, who were allegedly involved in a verbal altercation with a group including gunman Jermaine ''Wufgang'' Chamberline before the shooting. Fat Joe's spokeswoman said she hadn't discussed the incident with the rapper and could not comment. ...

Brandy sued a driver involved in her deadly December 30 car crash last week, claiming that Mallory Ham caused the freeway accident that killed one woman, The Associated Press reports. Ham then filed a countersuit against the singer, who has been hit with several lawsuits related to the accident. Ham and Brandy each accuse the other of negligence in their respective filings. The Los Angeles city attorney's office hasn't decided whether to charge Brandy with the misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charge that California Highway Patrol recommended in January. ...

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" did better overseas than predicted, but not quite as good in the U.S. as numbers released Monday would have you believe.

Another month, another win for Wii. The Nintendo next-gen system sold 360,000 units in April, NewsFactor.com reports.

The 360 still tops overall sales with 5.4 million, while Wii is now up to 2.5 million, ahead of PS3's 1.3 million. ...

And The New York Post's "Page Six" has a decent scoop about Ozzy on "American Idol" — "Osbourne was confirmed to perform on last week's finale of 'American Idol,' but canceled at the last minute 'when he learned he would have to do a duet with Sanjaya.' " — but spoils it by not only misspelling his name ("Ozzie said he didn't want to be onstage with that idiot") but completely misidentifying the man who did take the stage with Sanjaya. ("Fox ended up pulling Steve Perry from Aerosmith to do the somewhat embarrassing duet with the artist with the gimmicky hair.") Of course they mean Joe Perry. Steve Perry is the original singer of Journey — and a name that "Idol" fans know well thanks to one-time collaborator Randy Jackson.
