  • Beck has last show 


     NEW YORK — Glenn Beck said goodbye to Fox News Channel on Thursday, airing his final show before going into business for himself. He told his fans that he was determined “to his last breath” to fix this country.
    The colorful commentator will begin streaming a daily two-hour show for paying customers on his own Internet network, GBTV, in September.
    His finale was vintage Beck, a continued monologue walking among his signature chalkboards. He took some shots at critics, promised fealty to his fans, came close to tears but didn’t succumb and even poked some fun at his image.

  • ‘Transformers’ shape up

    LOS ANGELES — “Transformers” robots have lost some of their money-making power but delivered the biggest opening weekend domestically so far this year.
    Distributor Paramount Pictures said Sunday that “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” took in $97.4 million domestically in its first weekend. That beat the $90.2 million debut of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
    But the domestic haul for the sci-fi sequel was down from the $109 million first weekend for 2009’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”

  • Can’t ban violent video sales to kids, court says

    WASHINGTON — States cannot ban the sale or rental of ultraviolent video games to children, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, rejecting such limits as a violation of young people’s First Amendment rights and leaving it up to parents and the multibillion-dollar gaming industry to decide what kids can buy.
    The high court, on a 7-2 vote, threw out California’s 2005 law covering games sold or rented to those under 18, calling it an unconstitutional violation of free-speech rights. Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia, said, “Even where the protection of children is the object, the constitutional limits on governmental action apply.”

  • Reynolds auctions off Hollywood treasures

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Debbie Reynolds still knows how to make a splash.
    She was a teenage charmer opposite Gene Kelly in “Singin’ in the Rain,” earned an Oscar nomination for her gutsy character in “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” and, at 79, is going strong as a nightclub and theater performer.
    On Saturday, Reynolds will demonstrate her flair with an auction of movie memorabilia she’s gathered over four decades and which includes costumes evoking some of filmdom’s greatest stars and roles.
    “I consider myself a fan. I’m a fan who was lucky enough to be among stars, so I collected them,” Reynolds said during a preview at the Paley Center for Media.

  • Erykah Badu, Rick Ross perform for Tupac concert 


    ATLANTA—Even though rapper Rick Ross lacked a father figure growing up, he found guidance through many of Tupac Shakur’s songs that taught him how to approach life as a young man.
    So when Ross was asked to perform at Shakur’s 40th birthday concert celebration Thursday night, he didn’t hesitate to take the stage to pay homage to the slain rapper he calls his role model.
    “Tupac played father for a lot of dudes like me,” Ross told a crowd of about 500 at the Atlanta Symphony Hall after he and Meek Mills performed their single “Tupac Back.”
