Strange beef: Wale has been trading tweets with the reputed ex of Osama bin Laden. (Josh Sisk/For the Washington Post)
- Anyone who follows Washington rap star Wale on Twitter knows that he likes to argue with people. But his latest Twitter-feud has reached an entirely new level of strange. The Atlantic reports that Wale recently traded fiery tweets with Kola Boof, author and reputed ex-lover of Osama bin Laden. Boof called Wale’s music videos “White Supremacist images” and called the rapper a “loser.”

Lady Gaga is expected to have the top-selling album in America this week – but she won’t go platinum. Her label is projecting sales in 800,000-850,000 range.

 - When the Grammys announce that they’ll be presenting a slimmer, more svelte awards show in 2012 by nixing 30 categories, that’s a good thing right? Not so, says a coalition of musicians who are protesting the cut. They say the reduction in awards will exclude music made by minorities, calling it a “subtle form of racism.”

- Over on the Post’s The State of Nova blog, Tom Jackman has a report on Jiffy Lube Live’s tailgate ban, traffic woes and disgruntled fans.
