Drake, Justin Bieber And Lady Gaga's Metal Jones: This Week's Deep Cuts

The big clock on the wall of the MTV Newsroom says that it's almost time to put a ribbon on this week's batch of Newsroom Blog goodness. (Note: There is not actually a big clock on the wall in the MTV Newsroom. Strangely, there aren't any clocks at all in the MTV Newsroom. Shouldn't we have that bunch of clocks that tell us what the time is in Tokyo? Mysterious.) Anyway, that means that it's time to kick your shoes off, eat a rack of spare ribs and cuddle up with the latest episode of "Dr. Who." But before you do that, make sure you catch up on all the juicy morsels you may have missed on the MTV Newsroom Blog this week.

» Drake debuted a controversial new video this week, but it just gave us pleasant flashbacks to his fantastic role as Jimmy on "Degrassi: The Next Generation."

» Other video controversy this week: It turns out the filming of Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston's "Eenie Meenie" was nearly derailed by one uncoordinated dancer.

» During a press conference in Germany, Lady Gaga talked about how much she adored Metallica, which is why we paired her with some of the world's most savage metal bands, including Slayer and Slipknot.

» Eminem made history this week when his song "Not Afraid" debuted in the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. According to our rankings of the songs that did the same, "Not Afraid" is better than "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" but not quite as good as "Fantasy."

» Have you made an offer on Kanye West's house in the Hollywood Hills yet? He's asking for four million, but we're thinking of offering him $600. Think he'll compromise?

» U2 frontman and social activist Bono celebrated a birthday this week, and we commemorated it with the song he wrote for his wife when he forgot her birthday.

» In "American Idol" news, the pool is now down to three, with Crystal Bowersox holding the lead and Lee DeWyze sneaking up from behind.

» If there's one thing we know Justin Bieber loves, it's were pretty gut-busting.

» Jay-Z and Eminem announced a pair of unprecedented shows at baseball stadiums, which inspired us to wonder what the rest of the hip-hop world would look like at their hometown parks.

» Finally, just remember that if you happen to see Andy Rooney this weekend, don't bring up Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber. He's never heard of them, and would rather talk about Sting instead. Wouldn't we all?
