Here's what everyone else is talking about:

If you play the White Stripes album early without permission, Jack White will find you and tell you what he thinks. And it probably won't be good. Chicago DJ Electra learned this the hard way on Wednesday, when White called her from Spain to say he didn't appreciate the early spin — which led to terrible-quality MP3 radio rips floating all over the Internet. Electra turned to her blog to tell her side of the story. "I don't think I did anything wrong, and I don't think I am helping to ruin the music industry," she said in the post. "I think I made people excited for the new White Stripes record. I know that was our intention." In other Stripes news, the band announced Thursday that they have had to push back the September 4-13 dates for their U.S. tour due to "unforseen scheduling issues." ...

The Police's reunion tour has already survived an "unbeLIEVably lame" show according to one critic. Look out, Sting — he's sitting right behind you. Yes, Stewart Copeland took to the forum on his Web site Thursday to share a frank account of the band's Wednesday night show in Vancouver with fans. "We are the mighty Police and we are totally at sea," the drummer wrote, noting a series of small errors that most concertgoers surely missed, including a less-than-stellar jump by Sting and a momentarily out-of-sync "Message in a Bottle." Instead of duking it out over the rough gig, Copeland said band laughed this "disaster gig" off. "It usually takes about four or five shows in a tour before you get to the disaster gig. But we're the Police so we are a little ahead of schedule," Copeland noted. ...

Paris Hilton shouldn't go to jail, Nicky Hilton told People — fair enough, it is her sister and all. But her reasoning may be a little off. "I think she should definitely be punished, but going to jail for a traffic violation is pretty absurd," Nicky said. Of course it was [article id="1559810"]a probation violation[/article], not a traffic violation that earned Paris her 23-day sentence. She is scheduled to report to jail on Tuesday. ...

Hammond said he won't direct the film, which has a $3 million budget, but he does have some casting ideas ("I already have people in mind. I have it in my head — I could do it now," he said) and plans to be part of the process. "I wouldn't want someone to ruin my script. I don't think they'd let me direct, but I'd want to be somewhere in the picture like that." ...
