Coroner: Jerry Lewis’ death was from cardiac disease

LAS VEGAS

Authorities in Las Vegas say Jerry Lewis died of heart disease, but the wording of his death certificate differs from what was reported earlier.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said Monday that Lewis’ official cause of death was end-stage cardiac disease and peripheral vascular disease.

Lewis was the clownish comic hailed as an artistic genius and the host for decades of annual muscular dystrophy telethons.

He died Sunday of natural causes in Las Vegas at age 91.

Michael Jackson’s lawyer hired for Bill Cosby’s retrial

PHILADELPHIA

Bill Cosby has hired Michael Jackson’s former lawyer to represent him at his November retrial on sexual-assault charges in Pennsylvania.

Cosby’s spokesman announced Monday the 80-year-old comedian is bringing in Tom Mesereau to lead a retooled defense team. Lawyers from the first trial in June had said they wanted off the case.

Mesereau won an acquittal in Jackson’s 2005 child molestation trial. He also has represented boxer Mike Tyson, rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight and a Playboy bunny.

Mesereau will be joined by former federal prosecutor Kathleen Bliss and Sam Silver, who represented now-imprisoned former U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah in a corruption case.

Cosby’s first trial on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 ended in a hung jury.

A reptilian tail? Swift teases fans

Who can eclipse an eclipse? Why, Taylor Swift.

Just days after going dark on social media, the pop star put out another clue Monday leading to a possible song drop on the same day as the big solar eclipse. And if the lyric-sharing site Genius was to be believed, the tune is titled “Timeless.” The title was teased there but taken down later Monday.

As for the video clip that appears to be a twitchy reptilian tail, well, we’re not sure how that might play into Swift’s anticipated sixth studio album that all of her social media shenanigans seem to be leading up to, possibly in October to coincide with the anniversary of the release of her “1989.”

The tale may or may not have something to do with all the snake emojis that took front and center last year on Swift’s social streams, including when anti-Swifties used them in Instagram comments after Kim Kardashian West released audio recordings she said proved Swift gave West’s hubby, Kanye West, the go-ahead for a Swift reference in the song “Famous.”

Swift wiped her Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and website on Friday, the third anniversary of the release of her “Shake It Off” single.
