Paul McCartney has canceled a run of five Asia concerts due to a viral infection, with doctors ordering him to rest. The former Beatle had postponed two shows in Tokyo earlier this week and on Thursday (May 22) canceled more concerts due to take place in Japan and South Korea. Tabloids in Japan are reporting that the singer has been hospitalized, but reps for McCartney have neither confirmed nor denied those rumors. The U.S. leg of his tour is so far still scheduled to launch in mid-June. Bryan Singer has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit claiming he sexually abused a man on multiple occasions when the man was underage. In the motion, Singer claims he was not in Hawaii when the alleged abuse supposedly occurred in 1999. The director has repeatedly denied the allegations and said the lawsuit was equivalent to a shakedown. Kanye West did some shopping in Paris, just days before he was set for a marriage celebration with Kim Kardashian. West shopped in designer store Hermes. He and Kardashian have been in the French capital for days now, causing a stir among the hordes of paparazzi who have been tailing their every move. Kylie Minogue hit up the sweetest party at the Cannes Film Festival - celebrating 25 years of Magnum ice cream. The Australian pop star smiled for photos and spoke to the media. Minogue has been a regular on the Cannes circuit since she appeared in 2001's "Moulin Rouge."
