Morning Links: Miley Cyrus Unimpressed by Rebecca Black, Lil Wayne Hasn’t Listened to Nicki’s Album

● Perez Hilton is hoping to win a fresh new audience with his latest project, a kid’s book called The Boy with Pink Hair. Assuming the x-rated doodles don’t make the final edit, could this child-friendly celebration of “individuality and self-acceptance” mean Perez is growing up? [GalleyCat] ● George Clooney has been named a witness by Silvio Berlusconi’s defense lawyers for the “bunga-bunga” Prime Minister’s upcoming prostitution trial. Clooney maintains that his relations with the PM are strictly business: “I’ve only met Berlusconi once and that was in an attempt to get aid into Darfur.” [ABC/AP] ● Miley Cyrus, like everyone else on the planet, has some thoughts about Rebecca Black: “It should be harder to be an artist,” she told The Daily Telegram. “You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour.” [NYDN]

● Lil Wayne is Lil Wayne’s Number One, Number Two, and probably Number 400 priority, but what does that mean for his top-brass Young Money henchman? “I never heard Drake’s album. I never heard Nicki’s album,” he told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez. “I swear to god. I work too hard.” Best of luck to low-hangers T-Streets and Gudda Gudda hoping to get a listen. [NahRight] ● Nobody called to tell Courtney Love that her ex Edward Norton got engaged, but she found out anyway. “Wow, it’s about time. He’s 41,” she said. “He needs to have babies.” [PageSix] ● The 4chan hacker at the center of Hollywood’s nude photo pandemonium, the man who hacked his way into the private accounts of Vanessa Hudgens, Scarlett Johansson, and almost 50 others, says he’s not afraid of going to jail.
