• Lil Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III over a documentary about the production of his album Tha Carter III, but he's proving a tad difficult in the courtroom.
(Fame Flynet) Miley Cyrus is one of those stars who says she prefers to keep her private life private, but that doesn't mean she's above making out with her brutal hunk of a fiancé Liam Hemsworth in a music video. Young love: There's nothing like it. Also in music news, Lil Wayne has a really bad memory, Fiona Apple got sassed by a Texas sheriff, Chris Brown failed a drug test, and more.
BUT FIRST: Zimbio's Artist of the Week is the fabulous Shiny Toy Guns, who talked to us about Oklahoma religiosity and how Robert Smith is "just a dude that drinks beer and is very, very shy." You don't want to miss it.

The former Disney star also spoke to Rolling Stone about her much-anticipated upcoming album, which has neither a title nor a release date — yet.
"I'm thinking hopefully November for a single. It's just whenever we feel we've got that [song] we feel really confident in being the first single. I've got songs right now I feel like could potentially be singles [but[ it's been two years that I haven't said anything, and I want that to be the right thing we say."
In the meantime, Cyrus — who has been collaborating with the likes of Pharrell and Pop & Oak — stars with her boyfriend in the upcoming music video for Israeli rapper Borgore's song "Decisions," on which she offers backing vocals.
"That s**t was crazy," Miley told Rolling Stone. "[Borgore] walked into his hotel room, and it was people in the weirdest clothes you've ever seen. My fiancé was dressed as a unicorn — we make out in the video, which is very funny. It's just the most random group. We walk in and we're like, 'This feels like a party,' so it's dope."
So, things to look forward to: Liam Hemsworth sucking Miley's face... as a unicorn.
Weezy claims not to remember pretty much anything that's ever happened to him, and he's just about the worst interview ever on the stand. Asked how he'd describe his image in the media, Weezy mutters, "I wouldn't describe it." Bless the struggling journalist who's been up against that stonewalling.
• Justin Bieber did not give Sean Kingston his Fisker Karma — he just lent the chrome-plated contraption to his pal while he's out on tour. Hopefully Kingston is better with cars than he is with jetskis.
• A spokesman for the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office did not take kindly to the rambling monologue Fiona Apple delivered after her arrest for hashish possession last week. A man named Rusty Fleming stated, "First, honey, I'm already more famous than you. I don't need your help."
Yes, there was more — but when the delusions of grandeur are that potent one needn't bother with the rest of the statement. Unless you want to read it. Yuck.
• Chris Brown tested positive for marijuana, but as drug tests are not part of his probation, he's not in trouble for it. Brown apparently carries a medical marijuana card in California, and claimed to have smoked marijuana legally in that state sometime before he was tested in Virginia, where it is illegal. Judge Patricia Schnegg has ordered an additional review of Brown's community service logs, with another hearing scheduled for November.
• Get your earnest on: Mumford & Sons released their sophomore album Babel today via Gentlemen of the Road/Glassnote Records.
• But I'm too busy jamming to Ke$ha's new single "Die Young" to pay much attention to it.
• Troubadour Sondre Lerche is officially baller in his native Norway, since he now has his own stamp. No seriously.
Lerche, being adorable, stated, "I'm honored and flabbergasted to be considered legal tender in Norway. It's quite the surprise and destined to mess with my head. As an independent artist, running my own small label and being accustomed to not quite fitting into any particular boxes or scenes it's strangely encouraging to be acknowledged by the establishment in the form of a stamp. It's also important to mention that these are not the kind of stamps you have to lick, they are already sticky."
