Although I’m sure many were disappointed when they discovered that Pride Week isn’t until June, well celebrated muppets from all over Jim Henson’s Workshop (Waka! Waka! Waka!) all lined up for a hot plate of food and fuckery at BET’s Annual Florida Fish Fry over the weekend.

Rabid Beaver may end up having his 21st birthday bash inside the banquet room at Home Towne Buffet in Tappahannock, Virginia. At least the refills will be free.
Chris Brown is having trouble finding a suitable venue for his 21st birthday on May 5. Sources say Brown was shopping the event to clubs in New York, Miami and Las Vegas. But some promoters were hesitant to book the troubled singer because, “They don’t want to mess up their relationship, or their potential relationship, with Rihanna.” He’s now looking for private homes or restaurants in Manhattan. A Brown spokesman had no comment. [source]
After urging fans [industry translation: sniveling like a bitch] earlier in the week via the website SayNow.com for help in getting more radio airplay for his singles, Chris Brown kicked it courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game on Friday, exchanging hugs and pounds with actor Tom Cruise and Interscope / Geffen chairman Jimmy Iovine.
The Mechanical Dummy did us all a huge favor by putting the Tiger Woods scandal in perspective during an interview on the radio show Mojo in the Morning, saying “Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them. Whatever his personal life is and I think this goes for me and him – his personal life is his personal life.”
“They might be a fan, or might support what they’re doing but like if he plays golf, that’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for,” he continued. “They don’t love him for the other stuff that they’re talking about.”
The Rabid Beaver also drew parallels between himself and Chee-tah, commenting “I think, even with me, like I do music, I sing songs, I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes. So my hat is off to him – I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, because he is the best at it.”
