Katy Perry's dad apologizes for anti-Semitic remarks

Katy Perry’s father, Pastor Keith Hudson, has apologized after being criticized by two prominent Jewish groups for giving a sermon that included anti-Semitic remarks.

The evangelical preacher drew ire from the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Monday because of remarks he made about Jews during a recent speaking engagement at the Church on the Rise in Westlake, Ohio.

“You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey,” Hudson allegedly said. “You go to L.A. and they own all the Rolex and diamond places. Walk down a part of L.A. where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah! Amen.”

'The Artist' director defends use of Hitchcock score

Actress Kim Novak has ripped into the critically acclaimed movie "The Artist," claiming that the film's use of "Vertigo's" score was out of line.

Novak, who starred in the classic 1958 Alfred Hitchcock film, says in a Variety magazine ad that she feels "as if my body - or, at least my body of work - has been violated by the movie 'The Artist'...This film should've been able to stand on its own without depending on Bernard Herrmann's score from Alfred Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' to provide more drama."

To Novak, the way "Artist" director Michel Hazanavicius incorporated the music, even with what she viewed as a "small credit to Herrmann" at the end, was "cheating."

Dolly Parton: Kristin Chenoweth could play me on Broadway

Dolly Parton's hoping to make a "Joyful Noise" on Broadway one of these days with a musical about her life.

She tells CNN that she's currently working to make that happen - and she already has an idea on who could play her on the Great White Way.

"I'm working on a musical about my life and I would love for it to get to Broadway," Parton, 65, told CNN. "It's certain to get on stage somewhere. I thought it would be a great way to tell my life story because you can get so many more things in a song. You can tell so many more stories [that way] than [with] just dialogue."
