Series to follow Ke$ha

Ke$ha
Lohan
Channing

“Jersey Shore” might have ended, but another partygoer is lending her wild life to MTV: Ke$ha.

MTV announced Tuesday that the pop singer will debut a documentary series, “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life,” in April.

The show highlights Ke$ha’s life over the last two years, including recording music and traveling.

Harris charged

Los Angeles prosecutors have charged country star Emmylou Harris with misdemeanor hit-and-run related to an accident last year.

The Grammy-winning singer was charged Wednesday for failing to exchange information with a driver whose car she hit on a freeway on Oct. 1.

A criminal complaint filed in Beverly Hills did not contain additional details about the accident or how much damage occurred.

Lohan in court

Lindsay Lohan briefly appeared in court Wednesday for the first time in nearly a year.

The actress was required to attend the pretrial hearing involving three misdemeanor counts filed after a car crash last summer.

Lohan has pleaded not guilty to lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing officers from performing their duties.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner said she is retiring before the next court hearing March 1. Lohan will not be required to attend that hearing.

Lohan’s new trial date is March 18.

Lohan was accompanied to court by her new attorney, Mark Heller. Lohan spoke only briefly to confirm that she no longer wanted her longtime lawyer, Shawn Holley, to represent her.

Rihanna on Brown

Rihanna tells Rolling Stone in an interview that dating Chris Brown makes her happy and “if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake.” She adds that she’s ready to go public with her singer-boyfriend.

Four years ago, Brown attacked Rihanna and was charged with a felony. But rumors about their relationship emerged after the singers collaborated on songs and appeared in photos together.
