Tim McGraw Cleared of Assault Charges

Faith Hill won't need to sing a country song about her jailbird of a husband.

She broke down sobbing in a Buffalo, N.Y., court on Wednesday when her man, Tim McGraw, was found not guilty of assaulting two sheriff's deputies in Orchard Park, N.Y.

McGraw's friend and fellow country singer, Kenny Chesney, and road manager Mark Russo were also acquitted of all charges.

They were arrested last June after an altercation that began when deputies tried to pull Chesney down from a police horse he said he had permission to ride.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours before returning the verdicts. McGraw still faces a civil suit filed by one of the deputies.

Approved for Young Audiences

Janet Jackson is apparently cleaning up her act, at least momentarily.

The singer's new album, All For You, has been raising attention for its overtly sexual language.

Now she has decided to film two videos for the song "Someone to Call My Lover" to accommodate both adult and younger fans. The two versions debut in the middle of June, and feature Jackson singing while cruising down a country road.

Record-Setting Romeo

Rapper Master P has a new reason to be proud of his son, and fellow rapper, Lil' Romeo.

The 11-year-old is now the youngest solo artist to make it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, for his song "My Baby."

The previous record holder was a 14-year-old Michael Jackson. He held the post in 1972 with the song "Ben."

Lil' Romeo's debut CD is due out July 3.
