  • 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.”
