Billy V: Lucy Lawless, Simon Cowell, and Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole

(Hawaii News Now) - Lucy Lawless and six others were sentenced for their stunt last year when they got past security at a New Zealand shipyard and illegally boarded an oil drilling ship headed for the arctic. After boarding the vessel, they remained camped out on it over 70 hours, before being removed by police. Wednesday, in court, Lawless and her fellow protesters were sentenced to 120 hours of community service each, along with a fine of $651.44.

Yes, what America needs; another cooking show; Simon Cowell is in talks for a new cooking competition show titled "Food, Glorious Food". The show aims to find the best home cooked meal, with the winning dish being sold in a supermarket. Judges will travel the country with contestants pitching unique dishes that could be sold in stores. The show has been described as "Antiques Roadshow" meets "Top Chef". * Sounds a little half-baked, if you ask me.

Music Feature: New music from Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole - Digital single release that's available here and next week on iTunes.
