Photos of Monroe for exhibition stolen
A publicist for an upcoming Marilyn Monroe exhibition in Prague says that photographs of the star have been stolen.
Alice Titzova of the PR agency 2media says the photos, stolen late Monday, were to be on display starting next Thursday at the Prague Castle.
Titzova says mannequins and display cases that were part of the exhibition also disappeared. There was no word Wednesday whether the exhibition will be delayed or canceled.
The collection of various items including Monroe’s dresses, shoes, photographs and diaries was assembled by curators at the Salvatore Ferragamo museum in Florence, Italy, last year to mark the 50th anniversary of Monroe’s death.
‘Idol’ winner plans debut album in July
Candice Glover spent more time on Season 12 of “American Idol” than she will on creating her debut album.
The 23-year-old, who won the Fox singing series last week after competing for four months, is set to release “Music Speaks” on July 16.
Past “Idol” champs released their debut albums in the fall after winning the contest in the spring, but Glover said she’s ready to capitalize on the insta-fame “Idol” has given her.
“I’ve built a fan base being on this show, and my fan base is interested in me now, and they won’t see me every Wednesday and Thursday anymore to admire my singing, so I think it’s a good thing it’s coming out this summer,” she said in an interview this week.
“It’s crazy that I’m even talking about an album because last year I was working at a resort,” she added, laughing.
Beatles’ lyrics headed for British Library
Shakespeare, the Magna Carta — and now some of John Lennon’s finest lyrics.
The British Library on Wednesday added substantially to its already formidable collection with handwritten lyrics to Beatles’ classics “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “She Said She Said” and “In My Life.”
Although these three songs are legally credited to Lennon and bandmate Paul McCartney, the wistful, evocative lyrics are associated primarily with Lennon.
The manuscripts and a number of Lennon’s letters were donated to the library by Hunter Davies, a Beatles biographer with longtime connections to the Fab Four.
