Okay, so this has nothing to do with LA but we find it highly amusing. Time Magazine has the exclusive interview with funny man Dave Chappelle who wants to set the record straight:

The first thing Chappelle wants is to dispel rumors—that he's got a drug problem, that he's checked into a mental institution in Durban—that have been flying around the U.S. for the past week. He says he is staying with a friend, Salim Domar, and not in a mental institution, as has been widely reported in America. Chappelle says he is in South Africa to find "a quiet place" for a while. "Let me tell you the things I can do here which I can't at home: think, eat, sleep, laugh. I'm an introspective dude. I enjoy my own thoughts sometimes. And I've been doing a lot of thinking here."

But Napster To Go could care less. They released an exclusive playlist today (as selected by The Kitty) for their mp3 player service that is a soundtrack for Dave Chappelle's South African "Getaway" (sneer quotes belong to Napster). The entire playlist after the jump:
