MILEY CYRUS' MARIJUANA ANTICS ANGERS MTV VMA ADVERTISER

NEW YORK (AP) -- An organization that sponsored two anti-cigarette ads during the MTV Video Music Awards is blasting MTV for the show's many marijuana references. Miley Cyrus ate pot brownies with Snoop Dogg in a skit, lit up with friends in another, took a selfie and asked people to say "marijuana," sang the song "Dooo It!" that referenced marijuana, and passed a lit joint to photographers backstage after the show. Kanye West also admitted that he "rolled up a little something" before taking the stage. Eric Asche of the Truth Initiative says it's understandable for viewers to be confused by the mixed messages and he's "extremely disappointed" with MTV. An MTV spokesman says the network is declining comment.

JOHN FOGERTY LEARNS HIS LESSON AS A KID

NEW YORK (AP) -- John Fogerty learned about honesty by being dishonest as a kid. Fogerty says he saw another kid stealing a record and was practically boasting about it as he went out the door. Fogerty tried it himself a few times and got away with it. However, he says a "psychological mirror" was thrown at him, and he looked at himself and thought, "John, what are you doing? This is the thing that you love the most in your whole life -- music." He didn't know about karma in those days, but he felt he was tainting the thing he cherished. He's been a stickler for honesty ever since. Fogerty will put out his autobiography, "Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music," on October 6.

INTRODUCING DAN AUERBACH'S NEW BAND, THE ARCS

NASHVILLE (AP) -- Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys was noodling around with studio musicians and created another band. The Arcs are releasing today their debut album, "Yours, Dreamily."
