Madonna is all set to perform a Prince tribute at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards….. or is she?  A new petition is now up online that basically claims that Madonna is not good enough to honor the late singer….at least not as the solo artist in the tribute.  The petition claims Prince is worthy of an all-star tribute and that there are plenty of performers who would be better suited for the task.

Red Hot Chili Pepper’s lead singer, Anthony Kiedis has been hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.  Kiedis was rushed to the hospital on Saturday night, forcing the band to cancel their performance in Irvine, CA right before they were set to go on.  The band hasn’t released any update on his condition.
