Morning Links: Lil Wayne Talks New Album, Axl Rose Declines Rock Hall Induction

● Lil Wayne revealed in an interview with MTV that he’s got a record full of love songs, written mostly during his stint at Rikers, ready for an album that he calls DEVOL, "’cause that’s ‘loved’ spelled backwards." But, as "How To Love" Weezy will have you know, "what I mean by ‘my version of love songs’ is meaning, they’re not saying ‘I love you,’ they’re saying, you know?" [NahRight]

● Looks like Britney Spears and her husband-slash-conservator-to-be are in for quite the pay day if that X-Factor judging gig works out. [E!]

● Archie Comics’ Sabrina the Teenage Witch is headed to the big screen as a live-action (like the Melissa Joan Hart television show) superhero (not like the Melissa Joan Hart show) movie. [JustJared]

● Per his own lengthy request, Axl Rose will not be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during this weekend’s ceremony, because, among other reasons, he believes it is not “somewhere I’m actually wanted or respected.". [ArtsBeat]

● Why must we always make martyrs of the “little blonde innocent girl"? And, The Book Bench asks, could Rue’s "beautiful death" in Hunger Games bring this tradition up-to-date? [NewYorker]

● Zac Efron can unhook a bra with just one pinch-and-slide. "That’s my move," he says. [BuzzFeed]
