Length: 07:00:40

In the heat of a classroom argument, Riley's third grade teacher, Mr. Petto, loses his cool and calls him "nigga." As the media seizes upon the outburst and school officials decry the use of the "N-word" as a violation of district policy, Mr. Petto claims that he only did it after Riley used it first. Ignoring Huey's warnings, Granddad hopes to make the school board pay dearly with a discrimination lawsuit. Riley is more than willing to play along, and he and Granddad promote their cause with a series of television appearances alongside the adversarial conservative commentator Ann Coulter. And after Tom reluctantly agrees to represent them, Granddad brings on the outrageous Reverend Rollo Goodlove to help make their case. As both Coulter and Uncle Ruckus find nothing wrong with Petto's use of the term, Tom points out that there is no way the school district will ever agree to pay the half-million dollars Granddad and Goodlove are asking. Dismissing Tom, Goodlove takes their demands to the school superintendent, who laughs him out of his office. Undaunted, the Reverend blusters that it is only the opening salvo in a barrage of criticism to be leveled at the district. But what few people realize is that, in an effort to use the lawsuit to promote his new show on BET, Goodlove is actually working with Ann Coulter to create a firestorm of publicity about the case. watch

Following the shooting of the rapper Gangstalicious, Riley passes out upon seeing one of his crew kiss him in the hospital. Unwilling to accept that Gangstalicious might be gay, Riley is sure that it was all a dream. Yet, following the debut of his new music video, "Homies Over Hoes," the rapper suddenly starts sending Riley free samples from his new fashion line that look suspiciously like women's clothes. And though Huey points to the kiss, the clothes and the video as evidence of Gangstalicious' homosexuality, Riley refuses to believe it. Meanwhile, as Gangstalicious skirts the rumors about his sexuality, Thugnificent and his Lethal Injection Crew send Riley to land a deal for them to collaborate on a remix of "Homies Over Hoes." As Riley works on securing a deal, Granddad worries about signs suggesting his grandson is gay. Though he is wearing women's clothes and carrying a purse, Riley denies it. Even so, after doing everything he can think of to make a real man out of Riley - including playing football, inviting girls over, and offering to chase women together - Granddad calls in A Pimp Named Slickback to straighten him out. watch

What's Wrong with Britney Spears?

There is a begrudging tone to Britney Spears' public persona of late. When she shows up to sing or perform or sit for an interview with MTV, as she did in last night's I Am the Femme Fatale documentary, you get the feeling that she just got done sighing and murmuring, "Time to make the donuts"...

American Idol Taylor started off...

American IdolTaylor started off the show with an underwhelming "Easy." I like his voice, but one more "whoo" might end my goodwill toward him forever. Smooth and soulful Elliott had another fantastic night. I'm not familiar with the jazzy tune he performed, but he handled the offbeat tempo and phrasing effortlessly I agreed with Simon Cowell about Ace's singing. He looks the part and you can just see the judges counting his eventual ticket and CD sales in their heads, but tonight he was way off; dull, flat and his high notes cracked like cheap china. Did ya catch Brenna practically body-slam the other girls to catch his "beanie"? Gedeon really surprised me, doing a fantastic job on a great Sam Cooke track, read more

American Idol Song choice presented...

American Idol Song choice presented major problems for the first two guys, Patrick Hall and David Radford. Patrick's nerves were too obvious; he could've used some of Melissa Etheridge's bravado and grit to get through "Come to My Window." Meanwhile David picked "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" to get away from the crooner label and then proceeded to "Sinatra" his way through a Vegas-style version. Not the best start for either guy. Bucky Covington used his growling vocals to full advantage on "Simple Man." Ryan Seacrest contrasted his own potential song title with Bucky's by calling himself a "Shallow Hollywood Talking Head," which may be the most accurate judgment anyone has ever made on American Idol.
