Lindsay Lohan Finished Her Community Service and Will Get Off Probation for the First Time in Seven Years
About two weeks ago, Lindsay Lohan was ordered to finish 115 hours of community service by today, or the judge said she’d face consequences. It seemed like an impossible task, especially for Lindsay. But by God she did it. She busted her hump working eight hours a day, at a daycare center and a women’s shelter that we know of, and she got the job done. Her probation will officially be lifted at a hearing later today. It’ll be the first time she hasn’t been on probation for one crime or another in seven years. She celebrated by posting TMZ’s headline on Instagram, with the caption, “Hard work pays off. Thank you to all those that allowed me to volunteer while in NYC. God bless you all. Amen.” Get more here.

People are Petitioning to Take Away Iggy Azalea’s Billboard Awards
For whatever reason, everyone loves to hate on Iggy Azalea. Now, tens of thousands of people have signed one of those online petitions, asking that Billboard retract the Top Rap Song award she won at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. They say the song was released before the eligibility cut-off date. They think “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj should’ve won. But Billboard says Iggy won fair and square, the awards are based on Nielsen sales data and chart performance, not the song’s release date. Get more here.

Walmart Settled with Tracy Morgan
Tracy Morgan settled his lawsuit against Walmart, over the New Jersey crash that seriously injured him and two friends, and killed another guy. There’s no word how much Walmart paid out, but Tracy issued a statement saying, quote, “Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families.
