Kanye West has cut a plea deal in his battery case and has agreed to attend anger management therapy sessions. The bad news is Kanye's anger management counselor will be Chris Brown.
CHRIS BROWN will be cooling his heels in jail until April 23rd after his lawyer failed to convince a judge to spring him yesterday. The judge said Chris had an "inability to stay out of trouble" and was especially concerned that he stated in rehab, "I am good at using guns and knives." Brown's criminal assault trial in Washington DC is coming up on April 17th and if he's convicted he could be out of circulation a lot longer. Worst case scenario is that Brown could be behind bars for four years. We also now know why Brown was booted from rehab. It turns out he violated three rules, the biggest of which was staying at least two feet away from every woman there. In fact, they say he had some sort of sexual encounter with a woman at the facility. Brown also violated the rule requiring him to submit to a random drug test and he also dissed rehab during a group therapy session.

- The cape that was custom made for ELVIS PRESLEY'S 1973 Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite concert is up for auction. The full-length cape, adorned with an American eagle and stars and inlaid with semi-precious stones, measured nearly five feet in length and weighs 12 pounds. However, when Presley tried it on in rehearsals, he found it too heavy to be worn onstage and ordered a lighter version made. The original was sent back to Graceland and can now be yours. In 1999, the actual Aloha cape used by Elvis for the Hawaii performance sold for $105,250.
High school prom season is upon us, or is it? It's reported that school dances are slowly becoming a thing of the past. While proms remain popular, homecoming dances, winter balls and the like are slowly fading away due to lack of attendance. While dancing itself remains popular with kids, students are apparently losing interest in their school dances because they'd rather be home communicating with each other via social media.
