Legendary radio personality Casey Kasem, who entertained listeners for almost four decades as the host of countdown shows like American Top 40 and Casey's Top 40, died on Sunday. He was 82. Kasem, who reportedly suffered from Lewy body dementia, was admitted at St. Anthony Hospital in Washington on June 1. "Early this Father's Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends," Kasem's daughter, Kerri Kasem, wrote on Facebook. "Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken." Kasem leaves behind him an ugly family battle, during which his three grown children with his first wife accused his second wife of preventing them from seeing him and sued in an attempt to take over his care.
Kanye West was booed when he performed in front of a crowd of 100,000 at Bonnaroo Music Festival on Friday night. During the outro of his song "Heartless," the 37-year-old rapper declared, "This is real rock-n-roll! “I am the number one muthaf**kin’ rock star on the planet!" His outburst was met with groans and boos. Entertainment Weekly reports that many audience members even started walking away, chanting "F**k Kanye!" in unison, and that the words "F**k Kanye" were also spraypainted on walls, barriers and port-a-potties at the festival. Apparently, not everybody appreciates Kanye's "genius" as much as he does.

During a Friday appearance on The Tonight Show, Dave Chappelle hilariously recounted the first time that he met Kanye West. The comedian revealed that he had booked the rapper to perform on his Comedy Central sketch show before he was famous. While they were backstage watching unaired sketches that were being edited, Kanye reportedly got a phone call and declared, "I'm at the edit for the Chappelle’s Show watching sketches no one has seen before... because my life is dope and I do dope s**t." He then hung up. "This is when everybody knew Kanye was going to be a star," Chappelle explained.
