When Lindsay Lohan cries, it often has something to do with court - but Tuesday night on Letterman it was something else entirely. Whether the jokes and constant peppering about rehab just got to be too much or some unexpected praise did her in is something for the viewer to decide. Lindsay spent almost 15 minutes sitting down with Dave, parrying and dodging his probing questions and managing to look pretty poised along the way. Words and phrases like "positive," "looking forward to it," "happy and healthy" and "time for me" were quick to come from Lilo, but Dave had enough time that he wasn't about to let her get away with a total whitewash of her situation, which sees her headed to court-ordered rehab starting May 2. One comedic highlight came around the four-minute mark, when he prepared to pepper her with a "this is your life" type of list.

Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong is heading to rehab just days before the band is to release the first of three new albums. The revelation comes less than 48 hours after Armstrong ranted and smashed his guitar at Clear Channel's iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. Green Day, along with Usher and Rihanna, was one of the headliners Friday night at the MGM Grand. Armstrong cut short a performance of 1994 hit "Basket Case," hollering that he wanted to play a new song, and then called attention to a digital ticker that said the band had one minute left onstage. He used that last 60 seconds to vent . It's ridden with too many expletives to quote directly. PHOTOS: Celebrity meltdowns "Give me a ... break," Armstrong shouted.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dan Neil's column on rehab ("Little Miss Rehab," 800 Words, Feb. 25). I work hard at my sobriety, take it seriously, do my best and am still paying off the cost to attend. Neil's article helped assure me that it's not just me scratching my head, and that for the vast majority of people in recovery, it is the real deal and not some newfangled gizmo from the swag tent.
