Spanish police arrested a 31-year-old man Wednesday (December 21) and charged him with illegally leaking an early recording of a new Madonna song on the internet. At least one demo recording of "Give Me All Your Love" was posted on the web in November, two months before the planned release of Madonna's first new album since 2008. The "Madonnaleaks" investigation began after lawyers for the singer traced the posting to Spain.
Michael Douglas' son Cameron has been sentence to four-and-a-half more years in prison. The troubled 33-year-old got the time added to the five years he's already serving on Wednesday (December 21) for drug possession while in prison. Cameron's public addiction with methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin have landed him in jail before, in 1999 and 2007.
Orson Welles' Oscar for writing "Citizen Kane" -- regarded as one of the best films ever made -- sold for $861,542 on Tuesday (December 20) as a hot market for Hollywood memorabilia helped erase memories of an unsuccessful auction four years ago. The best screenplay statuette awarded in 1942 -- the only Oscar given to Citizen Kane -- failed to meet its undisclosed reserve price when it was last up for auction at Sotheby's New York in 2007.
Lord of the Rings fans have reason to celebrate. Peter Jackson has released the trailer of his rendition of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." It is the first of two films adapting the enduringly popular book by J.R.R. Tolkien. The film is slated for release in December 2012.
