R.I.P. jazz singer Abbey Lincoln; When juggalos attack, Tila Tequila edition; Kanye's Sunday morning jams

By David Malitz

- Jazz great Abbey Lincoln passed away at the age of 80 on Saturday. She found early fame as a "sex-kitten supper-club singer" but soon became one of the most outspoken civil rights proponents among entertainers. She starred in many films in the 1960s and made a successful public comeback in the 1990s.

- The opposite of the above? That would be Tila Tequila performing at the annual Gathering of the Juggalos. Did her performance end with the Insane Clown Posse fans hurling stones and feces at her as comedian Tom Green pleaded with the rowdy crowd to stop? Of course it did.

- And because the morning news wouldn't be complete without some Kanye West tidbit, the Village Voice collected Yeezy's Sunday morning "what I'm listening to" tweets for a weekend playlist that includes Justin Bieber, Matt & Kim, Aaron Neville and more.
