Concerts of big name artists Janet Jackson and Lady Antebellum have been cancelled by the authorities after a stage collapsed at one of the weekend’s concerts in India, taking the lives of five people.
Jackson was scheduled to perform on Wednesday’s state fair, while Lady Antebellum were expected to entertain their fans on Friday.
But a concert planned for Thursday, featuring Maroon 5 and Train will take place at the Conseco Fieldhouse, but all the earnings will go to the remembrance fund for the benefit of the weekend’s victims.

Country music legend Naomi Judd was not a picture-perfect mom.
That much is obvious from Ashley Judd’s allegations of incest and sexual abuse suffered as a child. Not by Naomi, per se, but on her train wreck mom’s watch.
“I will probably get around to reading it, because as a mom, I certainly want to honor her reality,” Naomi says of Ashley’s memoir, All That is Bitter and Sweet.
“I was horrible,” Naomi said. “I didn’t know any better.”
Ashley Judd’s book alleges a childhood of “trauma, abandonment, addiction and shame,” and does not mince words about her family’s role in all of theMore >
Last month, we reported that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would be back for a second season, with the whole cast returning for all the fun.
Might the second half of that statement have been premature?
Kyle Richards, a.k.a. the gorgeous, normal and happy one (relatively speaking) is hinting at an early exit from the Bravo franchise, according to EW.
The sister of co-star Kim Richards and aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton isn’t confirming a departure just yet, but isn’t sure she’ll be back on it either.
“The show has been picked up for a second season, but I’m not sure if I’m comingMore >
Hours after Lindsay Lohan nixed a plea deal that would have ended her felony theft case with a light sentence, her lawyer was talking a good game.
On Wednesday, Shawn Chapman Holley proclaimed her embattled client’s innocence and declared that the train wreck will be acquitted by a jury.
“Ms. Lohan has maintained her innocence from the moment this case was filed and she has never wavered from that,” Holley said in a statement.

Lindsay Lohan has a long history of shady behavior, including stealing.
That’s what the L.A. District Attorney will try to convince a judge and jury in the star’s upcoming felony grand theft trial, provided the train wreck doesn’t accept a plea deal that will send her to jail for a negligible amount of time.
If she does decide to take her chances at trial, Lohan, who stands accused of ganking a $2,500 necklace, can expect D.A. Danette Myers to provide a nice rundown of the past incidents in which Lindsay has been accused of such things.

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer is doing all she can to negotiate the best possible plea deal for a client who, in legal parlance, is up s— creek without a paddle.
The troubled star has other ideas about how to proceed, however.
Lindsay doesn’t care what Shawn Chapman Holley is trying to work out with the D.A., and is still steadfastly refusing to plea bargain if it involves jail time.

Who knows if it will persuade the D.A., but a surveillance video at least partially backs up Lindsay Lohan’s account of her infamous, alleged jewel thievery.
The accused felon was in no hurry to bolt Kamofie & Company the day she allegedly ganked the thing, blabbing with the owner for a bit before peacing out.
According to sources who have watched the tape, Lohan wore the $2,500 necklace she’s accused of stealing almost the entire time she was in the store.

The King’s Speech. Other films too, of course, but it was a royal victory for the picture about King George VI, which won Best Picture, and Best Actor Colin Firth.
Director Tom Hooper and Screenplay writer David Seidler also triumphed for the film. Natalie Portman, as the troubled dancer in Black Swan, won Best Actress.

As expected and as reported earlier, Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers made a plea bargain offer to Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer in chambers this morning.
That offer was six month in jail. Lindsay passed.
Judge Keith Schwartz said in court that he had a feeling her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley would pass on the D.A.’s offer. He was correct.

[HMG Celebrity News] – Kenneth Mars, the popular character actor whose 40+ year career gave us the unstable playwright in Mel Brooks’ ‘The Producers,’ and Otto Mannkusser from ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ has died of cancer at his home in the San Fernando Valley. He was 75.
Born in Chicago on April 14, 1934, Kenneth got his break in the classic NBC comedy ‘Car 54, Where Are You?’ way back in 1962. From there his credits read like a list of classic TV, from ‘Gunsmoke’ and ‘Get Smart’ to ‘Star Trek: DS9.’
The film world soon took notice and in 1968 Mel Brooks cast Kenneth as ‘Franz Liebkind.’ theMore >

Lindsay Lohan dodged a major bullet this morning when Judge Elden Fox ordered her back to rehab until at least January 3, but spared her more jail time.
The troubled star is due back in court February 25, and will be subject to random drug testing in between her release from rehab until that court date.
If Lindsay does not test positive for drugs or alcohol, her sentence will be converted to unsupervised probation. So if she stays clean, problem solved.

[HMG Celebrity News] – Gaining success in higher education can really help you in life. But if you’re James Franco it seems to make no difference at all.
The 32-year old actor once got a ‘D’ in his acting class at NYU. But in a display of abilities usually reserved for those who get dressed in phone booths he then enrolled at UCLA to study creative writing, finished that, then moved to New York and joined Columbia’s writing program, plus an NY-U film-making course and Brooklyn College’s fiction writing program.

What do you give to a recently released convict? In the case of Lindsay Lohan you can start with a dozen or so eggs. According to a report filed at the Nassau County Police Department and discovered by TMZ that’s exactly what happened when unidentified vandals approached her home on August 31st and threw eggs at her front door.
One week after that incident the train wreck of a stars mailbox was ripped out of the ground.
At this time authorities don’t know if the two cases are tied together in some way, but more important, who files a police report over an egging? The mailbox vandalism IMore >
