DJ AM Found Dead
AP reports: DJ AM, the celebrity disc jockey who publicly acknowledged his history of drug addiction and had filmed a reality show in which he offered to help other addicts, was found dead in his apartment. He was 36.

Police found a crack pipe and prescription pills in the Manhattan apartment, said a law enforcement official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

Paramedics had to break down the door before they found him, shirtless and wearing sweatpants, in his bed around 5:20 p.m. on Friday, the official said. - more on this story

50 Cent Cancels Home Town Gig Due To Insecurity
antiMusic reports: He's been shot fifty millions times and is the most badass rapper in the world, at least according to his hype, but 50 Cent backed out of a street fair in his old hood over "security concerns" according to an AP report.

AP reports that The fair had been planned for Sunday at a school yard in Queens New York's Jamaica section, blocks from a spot where the rapper was shot and wounded in 2000.

The musician's manager, Chris Lighty, says the event is being postponed while organizers work out new arrangements with police. - Read more at Jam!

Coroner Officially Rules Michael Jackson's Death A Homicide
AP reports: The morning Michael Jackson died, his personal physician says, he was given a series of sedatives to help him sleep, and when those didn't work, he was given the powerful anesthetic propofol.

Dr. Conrad Murray, a Las Vegas cardiologist who has been interviewed twice by police, has not been charged with any crime but he is the target of what police term a manslaughter investigation.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office announced Friday in a highly anticipated ruling that Jackson's death was a homicide caused primarily by propofol and another sedative increasing the likelihood of criminal charges against Murray. - Read the rest of this AP report for more details
