Kid Rock has won the National Book Award for his opus "Devil Without A Cause," reports the Associated Press:

"The Award Committee sited Rock's "startling insight into disaffected caucasian youth" and his "lyrical, neo-realistic stylistic advances" during the announcement of the award last night.

The award came as something of a surprise to the assembled press, who had expected Bob Dylan's critically-acclaimed "Chronicles" to win.

Dylan could not be reached for comment."

HA! Did you think the world had gone mad or something? Kid Rock was really just arrrested for attacking a strip club dj, naturellment. Puh-leese! Things are topsy-turvy, but they're not that crazy...not yet, anyway. From CNN:

"Kid Rock was arrested Wednesday by Nashville police on charges that he punched a disc jockey at a strip club.

The 34-year-old rapper was released after posting a $3,000 bond on a charge of simple assault, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

'Everything is wonderful. It was a beautiful night,' Kid Rock said as he left the Criminal Justice Center...

Authorities said he was charged after a 3 a.m. altercation at Christie's Cabaret near downtown Nashville.

'Inside the establishment there was a squabble concerning, I guess, the selection of music,' Nashville police Sgt. James Smith told reporters. 'Again there are no major injuries but an assault did take place.'

Television footage from outside the club showed the DJ, identified as Jay Campos, with a red mark on his face and holding his broken eyeglasses.

Arresting officer Lt. Calvin Hullett said Kid Rock surrendered at an apartment where he had been staying. He was in town to perform at a memorial service for songwriter Merle Kilgore Tuesday at Ryman Auditorium.

Hullett described Kid Rock as 'very cooperative,' despite giving officers the slip earlier. Hullett said the rapper left through a back door of another strip club when authorities showed up to arrest him.

When officers caught up with him, Kid Rock said he had dodged them because he wanted to sober up before being booked, Hullett said."

Yeah, well, it is rather an important issue, the selection of music at a titty bar. I mean, who can blame Mr. Rock? If they started playing Shania Twain's "Man, I Love Being A Woman" instead of "Push It" by Salt-n-Pepa, I might punch the dj, too. Isn't this in the Consitution somewhere? Maybe the world has gone mad...
