Clarkson, who worked with Dr. Luke on several songs, including and 2004's "Since U Been Gone," never claims he attacked her. "He just lied a lot . . . I've run into a couple really bad situations," she said without elaborating. Clarkson said she found him so distasteful she worked with him only because she was "blackmailed by my label," which wouldn't release her work unless he produced it.

COCKY IN early victory, gracious in final defeat, the charmingly Medusa-headed Justin Guarini of Doylestown has earned our gratitude for providing a summer of thrills in his quest to become an "American Idol. " So, Justin, our toast: "Hair's to you!" (We're much less thrilled that the winner, Kelly Clarkson, will be singing the National Anthem on Sept. 11 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. That's pop-culture overkill.)

THE FIRST thing you notice about Justin Guarini is that he looks nothing like he did when he spent several months as a national obsession on the first season of "American Idol. " Gone is the halo of tight, reddish curls that crowned his boyish, clean-shaven face. Today, the 36-year-old Doylestown native sports black hair cut relatively short, a slightly scruffy black beard and a mustache (all of which give him a passing resemblance to 1950s actor Sal Mineo ). And his professional focus, at least for the time being, is no longer mainstream pop music but show tunes from such works as "Wicked" and Stephen Sondheim 's "Company," in which he is starring, tonight through June 21, at New Hope's Bucks County Playhouse.

Rehab on top of rehab A Los Angeles judge has ordered Chris Brown to three months in rehab after Brown was thrown out of a facility for allegedly throwing a rock through the car window of his mother, Joyce Hawkins . The singer is still on probation for his 2009 conviction for assaulting then-gf Rihanna . He also must complete 24 hours of community service and submit to regular drug testing. Brown threw the rock after a joint counseling session at the rehab, in which his mom suggested he remain in treatment, the rehab director says in a letter submitted to Superior Court Judge James Brandlin . Brown had checked into the rehab voluntarily on Oct. 29, after he was arrested in Washington for punching a man who wanted to take a photo with him. He's still facing a misdemeanor assault charge in that case.
