Dylan and McCartney Coming Together?; Cassie's Computer Has Wardrobe Malfunctions; Courtney Love Still Has No Love for Kathleen Hanna



Headlines: Bob Dylan tells Rolling Stone that he wouldn't mind collaborating with Paul McCartney, and a McCartney rep says the feeling is, in all likelihood, mutual. And then, stating the obvious, the rep adds: "As you can imagine, it would be a pretty major thing if it went ahead." Umm, yeah. ... Wait, what? Another Michael Jackson lawsuit? This one was filed by Ola Ray, who played Jacko's girlfriend in the "Thriller" video. Ray claims she hasn't received a royalty payment in four years. ... Cassie, the model-turned-R&B starlet, is revealing a whole new side of herself online. In what may or may not have been a publicity stunt (she does, after all, have a new album coming out later this year), a couple of topless photos of the "Me & U" singer "leaked" online, followed by one in which she's completely nude and, well, "spread eagle," as Bossip puts it. What we know: Cassie is into body-piercing. What we don't know: Why she has naked pictures of herself on her computer. In a statement, she said: "These photos were obviously never intended for the world to see and it's sad that people would really take time to steal and post them, it's just evil. At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine weren't the first you've seen and they won't be the last." ... Speaking of boob-flashers, now that she's done with "Dancing With the Stars", Lil Kim can now get down to the business of, um, er, writing a book. Yes, of course. "The Price of Loyalty " will focus on her joy-ride through the criminal justice system. ... New Courtney Love rant! It's a good one, too: Ryan Adams, Mandy Moore, Kathleen Hanna, lots of typos and ALL-CAPS abuse, simmering rage over stuff that happened in the mid-90s. Sweet. ... Graham Coxon says he almost jumped out of a window in 1995, and it's all Liam and Noel's fault. ... The Miami Dolphins will be playing in Landshark Stadium this season, as the team has lined up Jimmy Buffett as a partner. At an event in South Florida later today, Buffett will perform a song inspired by the team. I think it's called: "Hey, Remember Super Bowl XIX When J. Freedom's 49ers Beat the Bejeez Out of Us, 38-16?" ... Jennifer Nettles has been placed on the 10-day disabled list (strained voice), just as Sugarland was set to begin a tour with Keith Urban. Doctors have ordered Nettles to rest her powerhouse pipes. Jason Aldean and Little Big Town were called up from Double-A to replace Sugarland on the tour. ... Married ladies (put a decal on it). Beyonce says she wears decals of Jay-Z's image on her fingernails, saying: "It's just a silly thing that makes me smile."
