Dirty Avril Scam
Idolator.com reports: Avril Lavigne's The Best Damn Thing may be the No. 1 record in the country this week, but were her sales numbers inflated by listeners' desire to hear Avril sing that she's not just "the mother... princess," but "the motherf***ing princess"? A MySpace blog post about one Avril fan's attempts to buy the explicit version of Thing is making us wonder, since it was through that post--and nowhere else--that we found out Lavigne's label, SonyBMG, is only making the uncensored version of the album available to those who pony up for the pricier CD/DVD edition: 

Yesterday I went to buy Avril Lavigne's new record "The Best Damn Thing" (shut up) for $9.99. They also had a "deluxe limited edition" that featured a bonus DVD for $16.99. I have no interest in paying extra for a DVD I will never watch so I passed, opting to buy the single disc edition instead. When I popped the record into my CD player I was surprised to hear that I purchased the edited version, the record wasn't labeled as edited so I thought it was just a mistake….

Suge Vs K-Fed
TMZ reports: Suge Knight has Britney's back ... and Kevin Federline best watch his! 

TMZ spotted the rapresario chewing out a K-Fed lookalike outside of club Area last night, mistaking him for the real thing while screaming, "He's a bitch!" and "Britney's my homegirl!" at the unlucky doppleganger. 

As he pulled out of the driveway he told our cameras, "That fool want to act f**ked up with Britney, act weird about her kids, we'll chase his ass up out this city!" -- Be warned K-Fed, or end up the next Vanilla Ice! [check out the video at the full story link]- Click Here for the Full Story

Sanjaya's Pot Dealing Mom?
TMZ reports: Maybe that's why Sanjaya's always got that goofy grin on his face! Turns out that Sanjy's mom, Jillian Blith, used to be a pot-growing potentate -- and that his sister Shyamali was no stranger to the art of toking herself.

The Momjaya was pinched by the Pierce County Sheriff's Department in February 2005 in Pierce County, Wash. after they found 310 marijuana plants -- and the Sis-jaya keeping watch with a bag of weed and "smoking devices" -- in the Malakar family garage, as the National Enquirer first smoked out today. 

But -- buzzkill -- Shyamali, who was arrested for possession, directed the cops to another green-growing facility nearby, where they arrested Blith and her husband, Charles Quist (Sanjaya's stepdad). Quist's mugshot, obtained by TMZ, bears a striking resemblance to Gary Sinise, a very blitzed Gary Sinise. (We're told there's a mugshot of Shyamali, but it can't be made public because she was only 17 at the time of the bust.)
