Not surprisingly, the Rolling Stones have canceled their concerts in Australia. The cancellation comes after Mick Jagger's girlfriend, L'Wren Scott, was found dead in her New York apartment on Monday (March 17). The Rolling Stones had been due to kick off a six-concert Australia and New Zealand leg of their tour on Wednesday (March 19) in Perth. The Stones said in a statement that they are planning to reschedule the shows at a later date. Kanye West was placed on a two-year probation on Monday (March 17) after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges stemming from an altercation with a photographer last year. In addition to the probation, West will have to complete 240 hours of community service and 24 anger management sessions. The rapper will be formally booked but will not have to spend any time in jail. Meanwhile, Chris Brown was not so lucky. The singer was ordered by a Los Angeles judge to remain in jail at least until his April 23 probation violation hearing. Brown was arrested last Friday (March 14) when he was dismissed from a rehabilitation facility, triggering a violation of the singer's court-ordered treatment. He is still on probation for his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. Kate Winslet received the 2,520th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, celebrating her 20-year career in film. The Oscar-winning actress was on hand to accept the honor. Her star was placed at the famed intersection of Hollywood and Vine. Winslet can next be seen in "Divergent" opening March 21.
