The most controversial magazine covers: Thought Obama with a "gaylo" was provocative? See if you remember the rest of these, courtesy of Newsweek.

Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall fired from The Game: According to Mediatakeout, BET has given pink slips to two of its biggest stars.

Prosecutors urge judge not to overturn verdict in 1984 murder: Defense attorneys for the eight men found guilty in the murder of Catherine Fuller, a 48-year-old wife and mother, have argued over three weeks that their clients were falsely accused, prosecutors mishandled the case and authorities coerced false statements from witnesses in the 1985 trial.

Another Obama hot-mic incident? Everyone can calm down; after a speech, he just said he was getting his gift, not his "sh--," which actually makes a lot more sense.
