Lil' Wayne disses America?

Lil' Wayne, the star of the America's Most Wanted Music Festival might have rubbed Lady Liberty the wrong way.

Wayne shot a video for his single, "God Bless Amerika," in New Orleans and some leaked footage shows the rapper walking on the American Flag. The track which is featured on Wayne's latest album, "I Am Not A Human Being II," only adds to the controversy behind the imagery. At the very beginning of the song, Wayne raps:

"My country tis of thee/Sweet land of kill them all and let them die."

Obviously no stranger to controversy Wayne's video for "God Bless Amerika" has already generated talk on blogs on whether or not the act is unpatriotic or just being blown out of proportion.

On social media, much of the talk has leaned on the anti-Wayne side.

"Get Lil Wayne all the way the hell out of here..... stomping on the American flag??? Enough of this clown," wrote user, S.L..

We'll know Wayne meant to make a statement if he repeats the act on the America's Most Wanted Music Festival, which kicks off July 9 in Birmingham, Alabama.

Did Lil' Wayne go too far or is this not a big deal?

Neil Patrick Harris 'Inch'-es onto B'way

Perhaps next time, Neil Patrick Harris will be accepting a Tony Award instead of hosting the ceremony.

The multitalented actor, who once again won raves for his handling of Broadway's biggest celebration, is scheduled to take a turn on the Great White Way himself in a revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Harris, 40, will star in the musical about an East German transgender singer and her rock band.

Dave Chappelle is back!

Dave Chappelle is back!

Dave Chappelle, who's generally kept a low profile since the end of "Chappelle's Show" eight years ago, is about to come back in a big way.

Chappelle is the headliner for Funny or Die's "Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival," which kicks off August 23 in Austin, Texas. The tour, which also includes Flight of the Conchords, Demetri Martin and Kristen Schaal, will run through 13 cities in five weeks, concluding in Mountain View, California.

Oh, it's not like Chappelle has been in hiding; in fact, he's touring the Southeast right now, and will be playing three shows in Nashville and five in Atlanta in the coming weeks. But in recent years the comedian's best-known public appearances have been occasional drop-ins at L.A.'s Laugh Factory and spots on "Inside the Actors Studio."

Chappelle remains most famous for his program on Comedy Central, "Chappelle's Show," a sketch-comedy hit that ran for two full seasons on the comedy channel. Chappelle was scheduled to do a third season, but left midway through its production, telling Oprah Winfrey not long after that he was burned out.
