Flavor Flav has written a biography and the rapper isn’t holding back. In Flavor Flav: Iconic he reveals the staggering amount of money he spent on illicit drugs. The rapper says he spent a whopping $2,600 every day for six years and that his addiction cost him a cool $5.7 million. Now that’s an expensive habit. The 52-year-old credits leaving New York with helping him kick his habit. He says, “I didn't want to build a bad reputation in other states. I wanted to leave all that stuff in New York. That's what really helped me get clean by me not wanting to build up a reputation of me going through neighborhoods buying drugs.” In the book Mr. Flav also reveals he lost his virginity at age six and credits MC Hammer with helping him launch his reality television career.

Americans Are Funny

It’s no laughing matter. Americans are the funniest people in the world, well, according to a new global poll. The poll was conducted by social networking site who asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to names the "funniest,” or “best at making people laugh,” and “the least funny” nationality. The Americans took out the top spot (USA! USA!) presumably because we are born with the biggest funny bones in the world. Spain came in second and Italy took third place in the funniest countries roundup. The least funny nationality according to the poll was Germany. No real surprise there. [Reuters]

Nicolas Cage's 20-year-old son Weston was apparently taken to a hospital in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon for a psychiatric evaluation after going off on is personal trainer during a lunch in Hollywood. After his trainer told Weston that he couldn’t eat a certain food on the menu, Cage’s kid supposedly went nuts and proceeded to get physical with the instructor. Unfortunately for Weston, the trainer was forced to beat the living crap out of him until cops eventually arrived. After cops finally detained him, Weston became violent once again and had to be strapped to a gurney. Cage was then taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center for a mental evaluation. Jeez. [LA Times]

Ja Rule Goes to Jail

According to reports, earlier today, Ja Rule hit a New York City courthouse and officially turned himself over to authorities to begin his two-year prison sentence. Ja’s prison stint came about after cops found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his car back in 2007. He then pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and was given two years behind bars. TMZ reported that Ja even had some final words before he lost his freedom. He stated: "Real life is a fantasy, f**k fame ... I'm ready for this to get over with. I am focused." Whatever gets you through it, buddy. [TMZ]
