Beyonce landed the cover of Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. It's the singer's second time making the list, which this year includes 41 women - the most ever included in the magazine's annual list. Olivia Wilde has announced the arrival of her baby boy. The actress gave birth on April 20. It's the first child for Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. They named their son, Otis Alexander Sudeikis. "Frozen" is freezing its spot at the top of the charts. The soundtrack for the Disney film notched its 11th nonconsecutive week at the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart, becoming the animated-film soundtrack with the longest run at the top of the charts. "Frozen sold 259,000 copies last week, bringing its total U.S. sales to 2.3 million since its release last November. Peter Jackson has changed the title of the final film in his Hobbit trilogy from 'There and Back Again' to 'The Battle of the Five Armies.' The director made the announcement on his Facebook page, saying the original title felt "misplaced." The movie is set for a December release. The California Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal by Michael Jackson's personal physician, who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the pop star's death. Conrad Murray's attorney had asked the court to overturn his 2011 conviction on the grounds that the intense media coverage of his trial could have influenced the jury. A lower court had already ruled that there were no errors during his trial. Murray was released from a Los Angeles jail last October after serving two years.
