Newlywed Ruben Studdard owes Uncle Sam some dough:

Ruben Studdard, American Idol winner and central tenant in Birmingham’s proposed entertainment district, has been hit with federal and state property liens for allegedly failing to pay nearly $200,000 in state and federal taxes, according to court records. Studdard, a Birmingham native, owes the federal government $171,920 in unpaid income taxes, according to a lien filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court. He also owes $21,730 in state income taxes. The majority of Studdard’s unpaid taxes stem from 2003, the year he won American Idol, and a $1 million recording contract. He owes $19,581 in state income taxes and $163,836 in federal taxes for the period ended Dec. 31, 2003, court records show.

Damn, hopefully that broad from the Tip Drill video that he married isn’t a gold digger, otherwise this may get ugly.

    Cavern. Stalactites (formed by the deposition of calcium carbonate and other minerals) hang from the ceiling of the cavern, and drip with water like the sound of rain falling from a leaf.

    Inside you can also find the answer to why Diddy never closes his mouth, why Michael Strahan still has a terrible grill after all the money he’s made, and why Prince wears chunky flip flops with socks.
