Here's some of the strangest music news the Internet had to offer this week:

Pope Benedict XVI has signed up with Snoop Dogg and Ashlee Simpson's record label to release an album called Alma Mater -- beating Kanye West to the punch, perhaps? [USA Today]

The Pope's really more of a Franz Ferdinand fan anyway. [NME]

What's better than Indonesian percussion?Indonesian percussion played by robots! [Vimeo]

Drake's knee may be hurt, but that doesn't stop it from tweeting! [Twitter]

Come on lady, being shot by Method Man is way more memorable than an autograph. [All Hip Hop]

Guerilla musicals?Oh, we thought it said gorilla musicals! [Urlesque]

Diddy moshed with fans at a recent Arctic Monkeys concert. That's right: moshed. [NME]

The White Stripes gets the Weird Al treatment. [Jib Jab]

Danity Kane reject Aubrey O'Day has covered Eddie Murphy's 1985 novelty hit "Party All the Time." It's about as good as you can imagine. [Pop Crunch]
