The Morning Mix: In The Glare Of The Spotlight, Taio Cruz Seeks Shades

Did You Hear?

:: Taio Cruz’s future is so bright he’s designing his own Rokstarr shades, he reveals in a new interview (the dude won’t even take them off during acoustic sessions). [MTV Buzzworthy]

:: Scissor Sisters tell Spinner that they’d like to record a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Piggy”. Given that Jake Shears and Co. seem to like interpreting their songs literally (they rode a fire truck for their “Fire With Fire” video) we’re looking forward to the video. [Spinner]

:: Kid Cudi was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance after a reportedly violent disturbance involving the rapper and an unidentified woman. [PopEater]

:: Snoop Dogg and longtime West Coast rapper Kurupt recorded a special theme for the L.A.. Lakers. It can’t hold a candle to Prince’s Minnesota Vikings anthem. [Nah Right]

:: American Idol alum Ace Young, who stars as Tribe leader Berger in the Broadway production of Hair, celebrated the musical’s 500th performance with an Idol twist — Paula Abdul showed up. We’re not going to be surprised to see Ace on Got To Dance. [Just Jared]
