Kanye West Arrested
Rappers are routinely arrested for drug related incidents, but Kanye West is never content being like other rappers. The "Stronger" star was arrested yesterday after getting into a scuffle with a paparazzi in which he broke the photographer's camera. The incident occurred at 7:51 AM outside the security checkpoint at LAX. West was reportedly headed for Honolulu. "Flashing Lights" indeed.

Estelle Returns to iTunes
On August 31, it was reported that in an effort to boost album sales and revenues, Atlantic records pulled Estelle's "American Boy" from iTunes digital shelves. This move came after Kid Rock saw success with sales of his album Rock N Roll Jesus without letting the hit single "All Summer Long" be available on the digital music store. Apparently this didn't work for Estelle. Album sales of Shine actually dropped 16% before rising 9% last week. "American Boy" which peaked at #11 dropped to #57 without the help of digital downloads. You can now find Shine being advertised in the middle space of the iTunes store banner.
