People: Paris Hilton, 50 Cent, the Rolling Stones, Gisele Bundchen – Pittsburgh Post
Paris Hilton is wrapping up a year of probation stemming from a 2010 drug arrest on the Las Vegas Strip, the Associated Press.
Officials say Hilton’s attorneys appeared in court Tuesday on the 30-year-old celebrity socialite’s behalf to show Hilton had completed her obligations to the court. She had to pay a $2,000 fine and serve 200 hours of community service in addition to probation.
Hilton pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of drug possession and obstructing an officer after police pulled over her and her then-boyfriend on Aug. 26, 2010.
Police say they detected a “vapor trail” of marijuana smoke wafting from the couple’s vehicle.
Hilton was arrested when a bag containing 0.8 of a gram of cocaine fell from her purse.
Rap star 50 Cent has signed on to play a pimp in a movie detailing Alaska’s infamous serial killer, Robert Hansen, the Associated Press reports.
The Anchorage Daily News reports Curtis Jackson, the performer’s real name, has been cast for “Frozen Ground.”
Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage will star in the movie detailing the police investigation of Hansen, who preyed on prostitutes and strippers in the 1970s and early ’80s in Anchorage. Hansen confessed to killing 17 women; some he let loose in the Alaska wilderness and hunted.
Cage will play an Alaska State Trooper who investigated the murders. John Cusack will play Hansen.
Rumors of a Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour have been floating around for months. But if they’re true, Mick Jagger isn’t saying.
“I have no idea if there is going to be a tour,” the Stones frontman said during an interview on Monday. “We haven’t really discussed it. We are talking about if next year is the 50th anniversary, sort of. It depends where you are counting from.”
Jagger joked that this may not be the golden anniversary for the band, because drummer Charlie Watts was with another group when the Stones first formed.
“I say to Charlie, ‘I looked up the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones, and you were not playing the drums. … That is so sad that you can’t be in the 50th anniversary, Charlie, because you were not there on the date, which was July or whenever it was,’” Jagger said, laughing.
Gisele Bundchen, supermodel and wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, was stopped for speeding and given a verbal warning by a Massachusetts state trooper.
State police spokesman David Procopio says Bundchen was going about 70 mph in a 55 mph zone on state Route 6 in Barnstable when she was stopped Saturday.
Procopio says two children were in the Cadillac SUV, properly fastened in car seats.
The trooper reminded Bundchen that the speed limit on Route 6 is 55 and let her go on her way.
Procopio says Bundchen did not get any special treatment. The same trooper gave four other drivers verbal warnings that afternoon. He gave 20 others written citations, but those drivers committed other violations in addition to speeding.
The stop was first reported by the Boston Herald.
