City Park seemed to be the locus of some weirdness this week, from the announcement that the Voodoo Music Experience is goin' Bonnaroo this year to the green underwear-donning escaped prisoner (he was just trying to be a good boyfriend, guys). Also this week: Norman Robinson isn't feeling Justin Bieber's new look, Michael Caine is not stuck in a New Orleans attic after all, and Jeremy Davenport has hard nipples.

New Story
