John Waters wants to take Beth Ditto on a USO tour

*“I want to do a USO tour. I want Beth Ditto to be my Marilyn Monroe, and have Iggy Pop wrestle with Bin Laden look-alikes. I want to do the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell, we’re going to hell’ tour. It would be great.” John Waters via Out.

*Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason are back on TV after getting close with "12 Miles of Bad Road." This time with a half-hour comedy for USA. Scripted by Linda and exec-produced by the couple, "Driven" follows an out-of-work man in Austin, Texas who starts a limo business, according to Variety. Comedian Ron "Tater" White stars. No word yet on when it'll debut.

*One quarter-Arkansas-based country band Little Big Town has a new video. As CMT points out, it's pretty much the country version of "Single Ladies," which means lines like this: "No more lovin' like crazy and no more chicken and gravy."
