After more than four decades making music and a 2010 tour, Fleetwood Mac will hit the road again next year. But it won't be its last tour, singer Stevie Nicks vowed, dismissing any notion that the band could be packing away their instruments in the near future. The 34-city tour will begin in April, which coincides with the 35th anniversary of the blockbuster 1977 album, "Rumours." The album landed the group four hit singles and has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.
Randy Blythe - the lead singer of heavy metal group Lamb of God - has been charged by Czech authorities with manslaughter after allegedly pushing a fan off stage in Prague in 2010. The man later died from injuries. Blythe had spent five weeks in a Czech Republic prison before being released on bail this summer. The singer could face five to 10 years in prison if he is convicted.
The New York Film Critics Circle picked action thriller "Zero Dark Thirty" as its best film in the first major movie awards of the season leading up to Hollywood's Oscars. The group also chose Kathryn Bigelow as its best director for "Zero Dark Thirty," based on the decade-long U.S. operation to kill Osama bin Laden.
And the most overpaid actor award goes to: Eddie Murphy. Murphy was once among Hollywood's top box office draws, but he now has the dubious honor of being crowned its most overpaid actor, according to Forbes magazine. Weighing box office receipts against paychecks, Forbes calculated that for every dollar Murphy was paid for his last three films, they returned an average of just $2.30 at the box office.
