The Rolling Stones will play Britain's Glastonbury music festival for the first time performing as headliners at the three-day June event. The appearance by the veteran British rock group follows weeks of rumors that the Stones, who in 2012 celebrated 50 years in the music business with a handful of concerts, finally would play at Glastonbury, one of Europe's biggest music festivals. Also taking the stage will be Arctic Monkeys and folk band Mumford & Sons.
Actress Ashley Judd's next role will not be as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky. Judd said on Wednesday (March 27) she has decided not to run in 2014 to try to unseat Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, after considering such a candidacy for months. The 44 year old actress made the announcement on Twitter.
Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt said on Thursday (March 28) that he will return to jail for his conviction linked to the 1993 Mumbai bombings, giving up a long-running legal battle for his freedom. The actor has been on bail since 2007 when he appealed against an original sentence of six years for the illegal possession of weapons in a case linked to the attacks that killed 257 people. Last week India's Supreme Court rejected his final appeal against his conviction but reduced his sentence to five years and ordered him to return to custody within four weeks. Dutt said he would no longer fight and would not try to seek a pardon.
