Motley Sues NBC
BW&BK reports: The New York Times is reporting that MÖTLEY CRÜE filed suit against NBC Tuesday (May 24) alleging that the network violated the group's free-speech rights and weakened its sales by banning it after Vince Neil, the lead singer, used an expletive on the air in a Dec. 31 appearance on "The Tonight Show". 

The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Los Angeles, accuses the network of censoring the band to mollify a Federal Communications Commission that has been increasingly quick to levy steep fines for broadcasting indecent material on television and radio. The lawsuit says the network, which banned the group after Mr. Neil inserted an expletive into his New Year's greeting to Motley Crue's drummer, Tommy Lee, added insult to injury by promoting a summer reality series featuring Mr. Lee.

Madonna Stole Song?
E! reports: A European songwriter is looking to freeze Madonna out of some cold cash.

The suit, filed in the city of Mons, claimed Madonna's minor-key ditty plagiarized several bars of his track "Ma Vie Fout L'camp (My Life's Getting Nowhere)", written five years before. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Leno Defends Jacko
AP reports: Jay Leno stopped making fun of Michael Jackson just long enough to testify for the pop star at his child molestation trial Tuesday, saying that he grew suspicious of effusive and seemingly scripted phone calls from Jackson's young accuser.

 The "Tonight Show" host's account of calls from the boy came before Chris Tucker took the stand and defense attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr. told the court that the "Rush Hour" star would be the last witness indicating Jackson will not testify.

Limp Sales
New York Daily News reports: 

...[Fred Durst's] Einstein of an idea to shoot the seven-song EP "The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1)" into stores this month while barely whispering a word to anyone outside his record company and his official Web site. 

The philosophy, according to a knowledgeable source, was to build a buzz through the fan site to prove the power of Durst's connection to "the people." Media, be damned. 

Unfortunately for the band, it hasn't quite worked out that way. 

The stealth CD opened on the Billboard charts at an awful No. 24 with flaccid sales of 37,083. In this, its second week, it free-fell to No. 82 and is sure to dive-bomb further from there. [16 minutes and counting...see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
