Black Eyed PeasWill the Peas perform at the 2011 Super Bowl? (Mark Gail/TWP)

- Will there be lasers? According to the sports site Sports By Brooks, The Black Eyed Peas have been enlisted for the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show. The NFL has not chimed in. If the BEPs do in fact perform, the group will break the six-year streak of boomer-rock heroes booked in response to a wardrobe malfunction that will live in infamy.

- T.I. ticker: The Atlanta rapper is expected to appear before a federal judge in Atlanta in hopes that his probation won't be revoked after his recent arrest in Los Angeles. Despite the recent troubles, his Sept. 25 appearance at Virgin Mobile FreeFest still appears to be a go.

- Ali G., Borat, Bruno and Freddie Mercury. Which of these names is not like the other? Turns out that Brit comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has been cast to play the inimitable Mercury in a forthcoming Queen biopic.

- The city of Baltimore celebrates "Frank Zappa Day" on Sunday with a performance from the prog-rock pioneer's son, Dweezil.
