J. Lo ties the knot
Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez has married dancer and choreographer Cris Judd.
Lopez, 31, and Judd, 32, were married Saturday night at a home in Calabasas, Calif, a Los Angeles suburb.
The couple met earlier this year while taping the video for her single "Love Don't Cost a Thing." Lopez appeared with Judd at the Academy Awards in March, one month after she and rap impresario Sean "P. Diddy" Combs announced their breakup after two years in the spotlight.
Facing the facts
Ben Stiller admits that some of the outrageous mugs made by his character in the upcoming film "Zoolander" were well-practiced ï¿½ while brushing his hair in the morning.
"My wife will say, 'Why are you doing that thing with your lips?"' said Stiller, who co-wrote and directed the film, which opened Friday.
The spoof is the tale of a dimwitted male model caught up in international intrigue whose outrageously self-absorbing facial expressions have driven his modeling success.
The joke is that each expression is pretty much the same cheek-sucking, eyebrow-pinching gaze.
Home sweet home
James Brown returned to his musical roots at the Macon (Ga.) Music & Heritage Festival, crediting a local radio station's willingness to play his records with helping launch his career.
The Godfather of Soul cited Macon native Little Richard and local promoter Clint Brantley as strong influences of his success, along with Macon radio station WIBB.
One of Brown's first bands, the Famous Flames, was based in Macon and recorded their hit "Please, Please, Please" at WIBB in November 1955.
