- Lil Wayne has uploaded a video he’s calling a “public service announcement” — a sad, rambling 30-minute monologue on Steve Jobs, his tattoos, his wealth and his drug use. Spin parses it here.

- After “Monday Night Football” yanked his theme song from the airwaves after he compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler, country legend Hank Williams Jr. has penned a song snapping at the media called “Keep the Change.” It’s a phrase the Post’s David Malitz noticed on a banner when he reviewed Williams’ Patriot Center concert last year.
