Busta Rhymes, The Roots, at the drive-in, Common, Stone Temple Pilots, Jurassic 5, No Doubt and Queens Of The Stone Age will be among the acts tapped for the revolving opening slot on the upcoming Rage Against The Machine/Beastie Boys Rhyme & Reason 2000 Tour. "As you can see, we've slated a bunch of artists that have no shot of stacking up to the Beasties or us," said Rage's Tom Morello… Brooklyn teen Danyella "Sunshine" Rogers has filed a $200 million invasion of privacy lawsuit against Sean "Puffy" Combs, Lil' Kim and Lil' Cease, Lance "Un" Rivera and Atlantic Records. Rogers claims that an explicit telephone conversation she had with Cease was used on his song, "Play Around," without her consent. In the suit, Rogers' attorney, Harvey Sorid, contends that the recording has caused his client "mental strain and distress, humiliation, exposure to public ridicule, disturbance of peace of mind and damage to her reputation, social standing and good name." Cease said he was pretty sure the $3.99 a minute charge he paid for the original call gave him permission… Bobby Brown was released early from the North Broward Detention Center in Florida Friday (6/7), after receiving a 10-day reprieve for good behavior. Comedian Chris Rock held a mock candlelight vigil and Brown's wife, Whitney Houston, waited out front in a stretch limousine. Sources said, shortly after his release, Brown jumped into the limo, drank a bottle of Cristal, snorted a couple of lines, pummeled the driver for speaking to Whitney and sped off at about 100 mph, nearly killing Rock… Oasis' Liam Gallagher and his wife, actress Patsy Kensit, have announced that they are separating. The couple was wed on April 7, 1997. The always congenial Gallagher was heard saying, "I'm a f***ing rock star. All of a sudden she's got bloody problems with my boinking birds on the road, and my drinking and drugging. I get enough shite from my dickhead brother."… N.W.A. have started work on their reunion album, "Not These Niggaz Again," using a mobile recording studio while on the Up In Smoke Tour. The reformed N.W.A., Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and Snoop Dogg (subbing for the late Eazy-E), all appear on tour. "We may all be millionaires now, but we still say ‘F*** tha Police,'" said Dre. "The time for a reunion is now. Especially since this tour's marijuana expenditure is costing us a fortune."… According to the Sunday (7/9) edition of Britain's News of the World newspaper, teen pop sensation Britney Spears has accepted a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, NSYNC's Justin Timberlake. The tabloid quoted a friend close to the couple as saying Timberlake proposed to the virginal Spears two weeks ago. Sources say Timberlake, desired by millions of girls worldwide but faithful to Spears, wants to finally get laid… Around 1 million ravers partied under cloudy skies in Berlin Saturday (7/8) at the 12th annual Love Parade, billed as the world's largest dance music festival. Police made a total of 34 arrests for theft and drug offenses, including busting a drug dealer caught in possession of 800 hits of ecstasy. "Thankfully that guy came to the party with 80,000 hits or this thing would have really sucked," said one attendee.
