• (Updated 5:30 p.m. ET) Reuters reports that pop star Rick Springfield was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk through Malibu, Calif., in his vintage Corvette over the weekend, police said on Monday. Springfield, 61, was taken into custody on Sunday night after failing a field sobriety test, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman said in a statement. The singer, best known for his 1981 hit "Jessie's Girl," was stopped by sheriff's deputies after rapidly accelerating along Pacific Coast Highway. He "exhibited signs of alcohol intoxication," the statement said. A breath analysis showed that he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.10 percent, above California's legal limit of 0.08 percent, the statement added.

Lady Gaga's, controversial "Judas" video (which runs seven minutes, and cost $10 million to create) will not premiere on MTV or the Internet, but rather on E!, May 5.

• "Rock of Ages" is the new "New Years Eve," with a ridiculous, ever-growing star-studded cast. The latest is Bryan Cranston; he joins Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Julianne Hough.
