The Word: What is Dog looking for in there?

48th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards - Arrivals

Duane Lee “Dog” Chapman looks like he’s on the hunt for something in Beth Chapman’s ample cleavage at the Country Music Awards on Sunday night in Las Vegas. If I’m ever on the lam, that’s probably the first place I’d go to hide — plenty of leg room in there.

Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Cuba trip
Jay-Z and Beyonce’s anniversary trip to Cuba is raising eyebrows with a few Florida politicians. “We represent a community of many who have been deeply and personally harmed by the Castro regime’s atrocities,” Florida Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mara Dias-Balart wrote in a letter to the Office of Foreign Assets Control. But late yesterday Reuters revealed that the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control licensed the trip as a “people-to-people” cultural visit. Does that mean Jay-Z went to recruit athletes for his sports agency? Maybe to borrow some beats? Or did he just want to use the best cigars on the planet to roll a blunt?

Annette Funicello dead at 70
Before there was Britney, before Xtina, there was Annette Funicello, the queen of the original “Mickey Mouse Club.” The former child star, who segued her “Mickey” stardom to the big screen in films such as “Beach Blanket Bingo,” died on Monday in Bakersfield, Calif., due to complications from multiple sclerosis. She was 70. According to reports, Funicello had been in a coma for years; her family decided to take her off of life support.

Lohan is ‘in a very dark place’
Lindsay Lohan infamously scheduled her upcoming 90-day rehab stint to start next month so that she can hit up the Coachella music festival starting this weekend, but at least one friend thinks she should skip it. “I fear for her life if she goes to the festival,” Danish promoter Claus Hjelmbak tells Radar Online. “Lindsay is in a very dark place right now, and I’m absolutely scared for her life. Coachella is the last place she needs to be.” Right: Drugs, desert and Lindsay Lohan. What could possibly go wrong?
