Jim JonesHarlem rapper Jim Jones is going back to high school soon. “I’ll be teaching … once a week for eight weeks,” Jones said of the Music Business 101 class he will be teaching to New York City high schoolers. “Hopefully, the kids will come on out and get up and close with the music business from an executive point of view, from an artist point of view, from a label-owner point of view, from a marketing-genius point of view, from a video director’s point of view, from a manger’s point of view. Me, I’mma tell you all of that. You heard.” We did. [MTV]

Hole singer Courtney Love is changing her stage name back to her sort of real name. In a recent interview, the singer announced that she had taken a new name, Courtney MIchelle (her real name is Courtney Michelle Harrison). “Courtney Love is dead,” Courtney said. “We’ve all decided we don’t like her anymore. We love her when she does onstage, but I don’t need her in the rest of my life … ‘Courtney Love’ is a way to oppress me.” Later, her “spokesperson” explained that the quote was taken out of context. “She’s not changing her name, unless it’s to ‘Courtney Love Mellencamp’ or ‘Big Baby Jesus,’ ” she explained.
