Lupe Fiasco fans demand more music

Fans of Lupe Fiasco are none too happy that the Chicago rapper’s forthcoming album, “Lasers,” has no set release date, and they've created an online petition with strong words for his label.

The request already has over 16,000 signatures, and accompanying the petition is a letter to the bigwigs over at Atlantic Records.

“The fans have been waiting for the release for Lupe Fiasco’s album ‘Lasers’ for over a good year now,” the message states. “It has even been stated by Lupe Fiasco…that the album is in fact completed. Enough is enough, we demand that you stop playing around and give us the album that we have been highly anticipating since the release of ‘The Cool.’”

'90210' alums to bring you TV Western

Jason Priestley and Luke Perry are together again, but, sadly, it’s not for “Beverley Hills 90210: The 15-year reunion.”

No, the ‘90s heartthrobs are joining forces to bring you a made-for-TV Western that will premiere on The Hallmark Channel in 2011.

The film, a Hallmark Movie Channel original titled “Goodnight for Justice,” will star Luke Perry as John Goodnight, a circuit judge who witnessed the murder of his parents and a public official as a child and is "hell-bent on justice" as an adult, according to the statement.

The movie, based on material developed by Perry, will be directed by Priestley. Production kicks off in Vancouver on August 4.

Heidi Montag opts out of reality show

We know it sounds like some sort of riddle, but it seems Heidi Montag has passed on an opportunity to do another reality show – at least one that involves former “Hills” cast mate Jen Bunney.

A reality program that would chronicle the pair's post-"Hills" lives was thought to be in the works, but Bunney wrote a post on her site that such a concept may never see the light of day.

“Originally I was supposed to do a reality show with Heidi, but right now it looks like some things have changed," Bunney wrote on her site. “I don't know if Heidi wants to be involved in reality TV at the moment with everything going on in her personal life (no we are not in a fight, and no Heidi is not 'dropping' me to do reality shows with the twins).”

Eric Roberts joins 'Celebrity Rehab'

The upcoming season of VH1's “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” has added another star to its ranks: Julia Roberts’ older brother, Eric.

Roberts, 54, is turning to Dr. Drew Pinsky because of his marijuana use. “Eric is incredibly health- and body-conscious, and has realized the need to take this step to improve his overall well-being,” a representative for the actor told CNN in a statement.

“Being a celebrity in rehab is ultimately celebrity rehab even in a private setting, so Eric is interested in using this opportunity to make a statement on his belief that marijuana is indeed an addictive drug,” the statement went on.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Chelsea Clinton's getting hitched

It’s the event of the year! Chelsea Clinton is getting married and the “Showbiz Tonight” staff could not stop talking about it this morning.

We’re all in agreement that it’s great she’s getting hitched, but $15,000 on portable toilets? Half a million on flowers? By some estimates, the wedding could end up costing almost $3 million! She might be American royalty, but is this wedding getting over-the-top outrageous?

But here's another question that continues to linger in our minds: who will take over for Simon Cowell on “American Idol”? Today, we’re getting a lot of big hints!
