LAS VEGAS (AP) - Tim McGraw and Faith Hill want people to accept that they have a solid marriage. Hill says she wishes people would stop buying tabloids that say their 17-year marriage is breaking up and she wishes tabloids would stop printing it. She says, "Happy is good. I don't know why happy can't be a story." McGraw and Hill have launched a residency in Las Vegas that will run for 10 select weekends through April. The residency challenges even the best of marriages, because the couple flies from Nashville to Las Vegas when they have to perform. Hill says they probably won't do any more Las Vegas shows because their oldest daughter is in high school and they want to be around for her.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The dispute over who owns Andy Warhol's portrait of Farrah Fawcett is going to trial. Ryan O'Neal says it's his, but the University of Texas at Austin says they should get it because they have Warhol's other portrait of Fawcett. Her will left her artwork to the university, but O'Neal says Warhol gave him a copy of the portrait as a gift. Jury selection is expected to begin this week.
NEW YORK (AP) - Alec Baldwin's stalker is going to jail, but it didn't have to be that way. Genevieve Sabourin (zhan-uh-vee-EHV' sa-boor-AN') rejected a plea deal that would've kept her out of jail. Instead, she'll have to serve six months for stalking Baldwin and another month for contempt of court. After hearing the verdict, Sabourin told the judge he was making "a mistake" and she hadn't done "anything wrong." Baldwin had accused her of stalking him after they met once for dinner. Sabourin says they had a sexual relationship and she sent him dozens of emails because she wanted to find out why he wouldn't talk to her anymore. Sabourin says just because Baldwin is rich and famous, he shouldn't be able to "take advantage of women and throw them in the garbage."

NEW YORK (AP) - CBS is planning a two-hour special to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' groundbreaking first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." The Feb. 9 special will be billed as a Grammy Awards salute to the Beatles. It will be recorded the day after the Grammys are held two weeks earlier. Top contemporary artists will cover songs the Beatles performed on Sullivan, a historic night in music that launched Beatlemania in the United States. The special will be aired 50 years to the day the Beatles appeared on Sullivan, in the same time slot and on the same network. No participating artists were announced Thursday.
NEW YORK (AP) - The release of the big-screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" has been postponed until 2015. The film had been scheduled to open in August next year, but Universal Pictures announced Wednesday that it will now debut on Valentine's Day in 2015. The production of "Fifty Shades of Grey" has not gone according to plan. "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the project shortly after his high-profile casting as billionaire Christian Grey. Jamie Dornan replaced him, and the start of production was pushed from November to December. A Valentine's Day release is fitting for the erotic romance, but it also moves the film out of the lucrative summer movie-going months. February is often a dumping ground for Hollywood's less prestigious releases.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - It was the time travel that hooked Owen Wilson on "Free Birds," not the fact that he was going to be speaking for a turkey. Wilson says he could've been the voice of a soybean for all he cared. He says soybeans could've traveled to Japan "to get tofu out of miso." But he says he doesn't think that would've been as funny as turkeys trying to get the pilgrims to take turkey off the menu of the first Thanksgiving.
