After news broke that music legend Bob Dylan was picked up by a New Jersey cop who failed to recognize him, President Barack Obama has invited the duo to the White House for what aides are calling a "bong summit."

Mr. Obama is attempting to mend fences after his initial remarks, in which he said the cop acted "stupidly," came under fire.

"In neighborhoods from Long Branch, New Jersey to Miami Beach, Florida, elderly Jewish men are wandering around mumbling to themselves," Mr. Obama had said. "This one just happened to be Bob Dylan."

In other music news, the late singer Michael Jackson is being kept in a deep freeze, and is now known as The King of Popsicle. More here.
