How The Famous Were Affected

Radar's Fresh Intelligence puts their own spin on E!'s celeb-related hurricane news:

• Still missing is Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Allen Toussaint, although Fox News has reported that he was among the refugees in the Superdome.

• Rapper Juvenile lost his home and several of his friends.

• Sadly, Master P, whose home was severely damaged, is still unable to reach members of his family. He’s starting a charity, Team Rescue, in response to the tragedy.

Fats Domino, who was missing for days, was found alive and plucked from his home in the city.

Harry Connick Jr. has issued a press release assuring America that “New Orleans will be rebuilt.

Soul Asylum frontman Dave Pirner was waiting in his native Minneapolis for the chaos to calm. He has a home and a recording studio in New Orleans, and he feared the worst. Sadly, although there has been no official word, Pirner’s career is widely believed to be dead.

Heh. I didn't even know Soul Asylum were still together. Just goes to show that no matter how great the tragedy, there's always room for a lil' snark.

On a more somber note, I hope that Allen Toussaint is found alive and well.
