  • 82-year-old country singer George Jones was hospitalized over the weekend, forcing the cancellation of a couple of shows.
  • A Detroit promoter says he paid Tito Jackson $3500 to be a judge at a kids' talent search event... and Tito was a no-show.
  • Don't be feeling too sorry for Lance Armstrong. He's doing OK. You want proof? He just bought a 12,000-Square-Foot Lake Austin Home for $4.34 million.
  • The Valencia (CA) West Ranch High baseball team has had a challenging season. Oh, they're winning more than they're losing, but rattlesnakes keep wandering on to their home field. 11 so far this season.
  • Edward Norton and Shauna Robertson secretly married last month, immediately prior to their son's birth.
  • Yes, Selena and Justin broke up. But that didn't stop her from flying to Norway to be with him last Thursday. Hmmmmmm.
  • Storm Thorgerson, the English graphic designer who created Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album cover, has died. He was 69.
  • Prince Harry will take part in a race to the South Pole later this year, leading a team of wounded British military personnel against Australia, Canada and the U.S.
  • A new book about the world of network news claims that Ann Curry's final days at the "Today Show" were pure torture. It goes into details, if you're interested. It's titled, "Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV."
  • A new study on sleep found the five things that help you sleep longer:   Doing yoga, being calm, sleeping next to someone else, and having sex or a hot shower all help.  And the five things that COST you sleep are:  Being alert, having a partner who snores, charging your phone next to your bed, watching a movie, and having a fan on.
  • We've finally got a scientific explanation for why you forget people's names right after you meet them.  Researchers found that your brain takes 30 minutes to two hours to decide whether new information is worth remembering.  So if you meet someone and can't remember their name, it's because your brain decided it wasn't IMPORTANT ENOUGH.
  • A new study has found that buying groceries and cooking all your meals at home isn't necessarily cheaper than eating out.  It's probably healthier . . . but not necessarily cheaper.  The main reason is that grocery costs have gone WAY up in the past decade . . . up 38% since 2003. 
  • Last year, DERRICK ROSE of the Chicago Bulls tore his ACL in the playoffs and missed ALL of this season.  And now, a 25-year-old Bulls fan is SUING him . . . because he says Rose's injury caused HIM emotional distress, and he gained a ton of weight.  He's seeking an undisclosed amount.
