- A horse-drawn carriage took James Brown’s body through the streets of Harlem this morning, as the singer’s body made his way to the Apollo Theater. As you can probably guess, Al Sharpton was there, happy to make the event more Al Sharpton-focused. [Billboard]
- Brown’s partner, Tomi Rae Hynie, has been locked out of the singer’s South Carolina home, the first sign that the singer’s estate may soon be mired in legal issues. [Detroit Free Press]
- Brown’s death has prompted Spike Lee to ramp up production on a long-planned JB biopic, which Lee will direct. Fergie “wants” to play one of Brown’s wives, a fact-free tidbit that will no doubt fuel mindless online speculation well into the next year, [Page Six]

    Unless Brown is carried in the same horse-drawn caisson that carried Roosevelt and Kennedy, this whole thing is a sham and a farce.
