He shocked hip hop fans with his dramatic return at Coachella, and he's the talk of the music industry. He's Tupac Shakur, and he's back... in hologram form. And if the spate of posthumous album releases in 2Pac's name are any indication, this won't be a one-off show. So who better to join forces with one of the most celebrated rappers of the '90s than one of the most celebrated fictional girl groups of the '80s? That's right, it's Jem and the Holograms feat. 2Pac! Look for the group's first single, "Truly Outragouz (Muthaf***az)," this summer!

Ah, another million-dollar athlete with a ten-cent head. Braylon Edwards of the New York Jets is quickly on his way to wearing out his welcome despite having only been on the team less than a year.
