Jason Mraz wants money back for Jo Bro song

Things aren’t looking so hot for boy band sensation the Jonas Brothers.

First Demi Lovato quits their tour, then the Disney Channel cancels their show "Jonas LA," and now musician Jason Mraz claims they ripped off one of his songs.

Skeptics and hardcore Jo Bros fans might be thinking that this just can’t be true, but take a listen before you decide. The Jonas Brothers' new single "Introducing Me" does sound surprisingly similar to Mraz’s hit, "I’m Yours."

However, Mraz says he’s not planning on suing them. All he wants, he jokingly added, is his $1.29 back for downloading the band’s new single on iTunes.

Liam Neeson: Gibson's cool with 'Hangover' replacement

Rather than dwell on being ditched from "The Hangover 2," Mel Gibson has already moved on. In fact, his replacement, Liam Neeson, says Gibson is just fine with the fact that he'll be filling his shoes.

“I spoke to Mel. Mel’s cool about it," Neeson, 58, told Access Hollywood. "We’re all cool.”

Gibson, 54, was to have played a Bangkok tattoo artist in the sequel to the hit "The Hangover," but got the axe last month when director Todd Phillips explained that the decision to hire the troubled star "did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew." Reports at the time suggested that actor Zach Galifianakis spearheaded the call for Gibson's cancellation.

Marie Osmond talks about the death of her son

This year began with tragedy for Marie Osmond, who lost her son Michael Bryan in February when he committed suicide by jumping from the eighth-floor balcony of his Los Angeles apartment.

Osmond, 51, sat down with Oprah Winfrey for Thursday’s edition of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to talk about her loss for the first and last time.

After an experience such as this, “I don’t know if you’re ever ready to talk,” Osmond told Winfrey. But she added, “I knew you would be the person I would talk to, and I just think, if anybody asked after that I’d say I talked about it on ‘Oprah.’ I didn’t want it to be handled crazily.”

Portia DeGeneres open to 'Dancing with the Stars'

Could Portia DeGeneres (formerly Portia de Rossi) be one of the next to dance "with the Stars"? The actress told Ryan Seacrest that she’d be open to showing off her moves on the hit ABC show.

While chatting with DeGeneres about her new book, “Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain,” on his radio show, Seacrest mentioned the news that "Dancing with the Stars" producers are "planning to feature a same-sex couple for next season,” and that DeGeneres was at the top of their list. (The Israeli version of "DWTS" is the first in the franchise to feature a same-sex couple, and E! reports that the U.S. edition could make a similar move in the future.)

The actress, who wed daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in 2008 and took her last name in September, was caught off guard but not completely opposed to the idea.
