Drugs on Bieber's bus
STOCKHOLM - The latest chapter in Justin Bieber's European tour escapade was added Thursday when Swedish police said they had found drugs and a stun gun on the pop singer's bus.
Lars Bystrom, spokesman for the Stockholm police, said a small amount of drugs and a stun gun were discovered during a search of the bus, which had been parked under the Globen concert venue in Stockholm, where Bieber was performing Wednesday.
Bystrom declined to identify the drug, saying that it was sent to a lab for analysis. He said no one was arrested since the bus was empty at the time of the search.
Swedish police decided to act after smelling marijuana coming from inside the bus while it was parked outside the hotel where Bieber was staying in the Swedish capital. The drug squad searched the bus during the concert, Bystrom said.
The incident is the latest in Bieber's tumultuous European tour, which has included a monkey detention, a Holocaust museum furor and a health scare.
LONDON - The director of award-winning film "Senna" is making a documentary about the late soul singer Amy Winehouse.
Focus Features International says the movie will feature unseen archive footage to tell the story of the art and life of the musician, who died at age 27 in London in 2011 from accidental alcohol poisoning.
The Winehouse family said in a statement Thursday that it had been approached with many documentary proposals, but "Senna" director Asif Kapadia and producer James Gay-Rees presented a vision that would "look at Amy's story sensitively, honestly and without sensationalizing her."
"Senna," the acclaimed 2010 film, focused on the life of Brazilian F1 driver Ayrton Senna. The champion racer was killed in an accident in 1994.
VIENNA - A lock of hair from a former Austrian emperor has fetched a price of $17,800 at an auction of imperial memorabilia - more than 20 times its listed worth.
Hushed murmurs rippled through the room as the winning bid was announced for the silvery strands of hair from Franz Josef I, who ruled Austria from 1848 until his death in 1916.
A picture of Empress Elisabeth by Franx Xaver Winterhalter was the most pricey item, changing owners for about $90,000 Thursday.
At more than three times its estimated value, that price reflected the growing scarcity of Austrian imperial memorabilia nearly a century after the country's last emperor abdicated with the end of World War I.
Paltrow: 'Most beautiful' title 'not true'
LOS ANGELES - Gwyneth Paltrow says she's thrilled to be picked by People magazine as "World's Most Beautiful Woman" for 2013 but it's "obviously not true."
Paltrow questioned her own selection as she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of "Iron Man 3" Wednesday night wearing a colorblocked illusion gown with wide sheer panels down the side - shoulder to hip, except for the waistband - that left almost nothing to the imagination.
"It's funny, these things, because it's like obviously not true. But it's very sweet to be named that," Paltrow said. "Because I mean you can't say that, you know! But it's been wonderful. It's been very wonderful. And as my friend said, it's so nice that someone who has kids and is a mom and is not like 21 is named that. It's really an honor."
Currington charged with threats
SAVANNAH, Ga. - Police in coastal Georgia say country singer Billy Currington may have videotaped himself chasing a 70-year-old tour boat captain and threatening to "finish him off."
A police affidavit and search warrant papers filed Thursday in Chatham County Superior Court say officers seized digital video files and photographs from Currington's waterfront home near Tybee Island.
Currington, whose hits include "People Are Crazy," was indicted Wednesday on felony charges of making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person.
Tour boat captain Charles Harvey Ferrelle told police Currington shouted at him and two passengers when they passed his home April 15. Ferrelle says on the return trip Currington chased them by boat and shouted threats while holding a camera.
Attorney Alex Zipperer says in a court filing Currington denies the allegations.
Margulies, Rudd onstage
NEW YORK - Julianna Margulies and Paul Rudd will team up as lovers for a one-night only benefit reading of Neil LaBute's play "The Mercy Seat."
The off-Broadway company MCC Theater said Thursday the reading will be held June 17 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Tickets are available from $75-$250 and go on sale to the general public May 7.
"The Mercy Seat" is set on the day after the 9/11 attacks in which a World Trade Center worker contemplates using the tragedy to run away and start a new life with his lover.
Margulies, the star of "The Good Wife," last appeared on an MCC stage in 2002's "Intrigue with Faye." Rudd, of "Anchorman" fame, was on Broadway this season in "Grace."
The event celebrates MCC's collaboration with LaBute, who has had seven plays produced there over the last decade, including this spring's "Reasons to Be Happy."
