For The Record: Busta Rhymes, 'Idol,' Pete Wentz & More

· One of Busta Rhymes' bodyguards was found shot dead in the back of his pickup in Queens on Wednesday.

· According to this report, “American Idol” producers had originally booked Michael Jackson, rather than George Michael, to perform on the show's finale.

· First, Pete Wentz praised John Mayer for his deep thoughts on celebrity, then Mayer returned the favor, calling the newlywed father-to-be “one of the best eggs in the music industry." Aww.

· How can something so wrong feel so right? Ladies and gentlemen, someone has made a bluegrass/gangsta rap mash-up album.
