    When Cory Monteith died alone in a room at Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim last weekend, he took up permanent residency in a sad but famous corner of popular culture: A celebrity registry of bitter suite ends. Fortunate stars that grow old naturally can look forward to meeting their maker covered by monogrammed sheets and framed by pictures of their younger-selves on nearby walls. Their families will gather to remember and mourn — perhaps later to fight over the estate. But troubled and addicted celebrities are continually found by demons as they sit alone, not sheltered inside fine homes or a...

    Van Halen: The Next 'Rock Star'? February 12, 2006 Sources tell TMZ Van Halen is in the market for a new lead singer, and the marketplace will be the upcoming reality show 'Rock Star: The Series.' Last October, Van Halen reps vehemently denied the band would use 'Rock Star' in a talent search for a new lead singer. The reps are now singing a different tune. Van Halen publicist Larry Solters told TMZ: "I'm not denying it. I'm not going to answer any questions about it." Last year, the band INXS used 'Rock Star' to find a new lead singer....

But lawyers for the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, or ASCAP, has filed suit against the owners of the club 602 North in Glendale Heights. The suit claims that during an October investigation of 602 North, songs by not only...

    Australia was a divided nation last night as its troops prepared to join a United States-led invasion of Iraq and Federal Parliament descended into a bitter debate over waging war without specific United Nations backing. The Prime Minister came under heavy flak for committing the country to war after the US President, George Bush, gave Saddam Hussein and his sons until tomorrow to leave Iraq or face attack. John Howard said the coalition of US, British and Australian troops did not need further UN approval to launch the invasion. "The Government strongly believes that the decision it's taken is right,...
