ODB On The Run, Nelly Denied, Master P On The Rebound And Other Bedtime Stories

HOORAY FOR HOLY-WOOD
The British are coming, and this time, they want Marilyn Manson. The schlock-rocker's U.K. Web site is sponsoring a contest for two lucky Brits to win a week in Hollywood with Manson. The winner must collect a series of clues and messages coded to Manson's upcoming CD "'Holy Wood (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death)." The week's activities will reportedly include attending a Republican fundraiser with Rose McGowan.

WHOA NELLY
The mayor of St. Louis is not down with Nelly and the St. Lunatics. Mayor Clarence Harmon denied to give props to the city's favorite son. When organizers of the annual St. Louis Gateway Classic football event asked Mayor Harmon to honor Nelly with a proclamation, he refused. The mayor claimed the people of St. Louis found Nelly's smash "Country Grammar" offensive. In a prepared statement, Mayor Harmon said: "Just because you're Platinum ought not to get you some recognition if what you say is offensive. I couldn't officially provide the city's blessing on something like that." The mayor added: "In my opinion, that's not even rap. Now that Will Smith, there's a feller I can shake my ass to."

PRETTY QUICK FOR A BIG BABY
A bench warrant has been issued for allegedly recovering rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard after he reportedly fled from a Pasadena drug-treatment facility last week. SonicNet reports that the Bastard (Russell Tyrone Jones) ran away while he was being transported from his current court-ordered residence, the Impact House, to the Los Angeles Criminal Courthouse. "He physically ran away," Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Michael O'Gara told the news site. "It's my understanding that [ODB's] counselors were taking him to court to discuss his program with the judge." The troubled Wu-Tang Clan member was later found sleeping in the bed of a stranger's house. Authorities wouldn't confirm whether the house belonged to Shawn Colvin.

THE ‘P' STANDS FOR ‘PRETTY DELUSIONAL'
Rap entrepreneur Master P has set his sights on the NBA…again. The No Limit mastermind has been in training with the L.A. Clippers, Dallas Mavericks and the Washington Wizards. Back in 1999, P—known as Percy Miller—served as a guard for the San Diego Stingrays in the International Basketball League. He also played pre-season games for the Toronto Raptors and was this close to signing with the Charlotte Hornets. Said Master P: "I figure I'll play b-ball for a few seasons, then parlay my fame into a successful lucrative recording career like my idol Kobe Bryant."

TO THE XTREME
A Las Vegas radio station is staging a boycott of Limp Bizkit. KXTE is urging listeners to return copies of the band's "Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water," after the band canceled its Nov. 20 show at the Thomas & Mack Center. This marks the third time the band canceled a show in one of the first markets to play them. Xtreme Radio had begun airing a "Beverly Hillbillies"- tuned parody, in which lead Bizkit Fred Durst was accused of calling off the Vegas show to make more money elsewhere, oh yeah, and also implying that he indulged in anal sex, and not necessarily with women. The station yanked the song from rotation Friday (10/20) at the request of the band's management. The song is still available, however, on Napster.
