Singer Maxine Jones is relaunching her court fight over the use of En Vogue's name after declaring bankruptcy following her legal defeat. The pop star, who left the R&B group in 2012, lost a court fight against former bandmates Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis last year (13) and was ordered not to use the moniker for performances.
Herron and Ellis were granted sole use of the name.
Jones has since declared herself bankrupt with debts of around $250,000 (£156,000), and now she is appealing against the ruling, according to TMZ.com.
Jones is seeking the right to perform under the name En Vogue so she can pay off her debts.
The Allman Brothers star Gregg Allman is to be feted with a Living Legend award at the upcoming Classic Rock Roll Of Honour ceremony. The rocker will join Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper, among other recipients of the trophy, on 4 November (14) in Hollywood.
He says, "I am so very honoured to be receiving this award from Classic Rock. The magazine is one of my favourites and they are always so generous to me and the Brothers."
Publication editor Sian Llewellyn adds, "Gregg has touched the lives of rock fans all over the globe for over four decades. I'm thrilled that we can call him Classic Rock Magazine's Living Legend 2014."
The accolade comes during a difficult year for Allman - his movie biopic Midnight Rider was stalled in February (14) following the death of a camera assistant on the set of the film. Sarah Jones was filming in Georgia, when she was hit and killed by a train. Allman attempted to pull the film from production altogether after the fatal accident.
A Foo Fighters fan who launched a crowdfunding campaign to persuade Dave Grohl and his bandmates to perform in his home city has helped land the group its own day there. Richmond, Virginia Mayor Dwight C. Jones declared 17 September (14) Foo Fighters Day on Wednesday, hours before the rockers performed at the National Theater.
Andrew Goldin launched the crowdfunded gig and raised over $70,000 (GBP43,700) to convince his favourite band to play its first concert in the city since 1998.
"He watched about an hour of filming and we were waiting to see what he thought when he wrote a note saying, 'Would you ask Felicity if she will come and give me a kiss?' It shows his rather flirty nature and this amazing capacity he has to not take himself too seriously. I embraced him and told him 'You're amazing!'" Actress Felicity Jones got close to scientist Stephen Hawking on the set of The Theory Of Everything, which was based on the memoirs of his first wife.
British actress Felicity Jones has started to date again less than a year after splitting from her long-term boyfriend. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star has been out of the romance game since breaking up with sculptor artist Ed Fornieles last year (13) after a decade together.
She has now started courting again but admits she is so out of practise that her nerves are leading to embarrassing encounters.
Jones tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "I went on a couple of dates recently and they were very awkward. I don't want to go into the gory details of my love life but I was with this person and it was so awkward because, you know what it's like, when you are so nervous you don't know what to say to each other but you really like that person?
"And it's always when you like someone that you never know what to say. Why is that? It's so annoying. But when you don't like someone you feel so cool and you say all these wonderful things...
"I have had love and I have lost love and I was just in a very long relationship that was very important to me but unfortunately it broke down. But I learned so much from that relationship and I am glad that person was very, very important to me and I had him in my life."
Late The Monkees star Davy Jones' Pennsylvania farm retreat has been placed on the market. The six-bedroom Beavertown estate, which the singer called home for almost three decades, is up for sale at $389,000 (£243,000).
The property comes with a chapel that Jones was hoping to turn into a museum. That's on the market for $60,000 (£37,500).
Jones died after suffering a massive heart attack in February, 2012 at the age of 66.
George Harrison's son Dhani and stars like Beck and Norah Jones will honour the late Beatle as part of a 'Harrison Week' on U.S. late-night host Conan O'Brien's show. The TV personality will turn his Conan show into a daily tribute to one of his heroes, beginning on Monday (22Sep14).
Harrison Week will coincide with the release of box set The Apple Years: 1968-75, which features the beloved singer/songwriter's first six solo albums.
The late Beatle's legacy will also be celebrated in the week after the Conan engagement at an event dubbed George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison. Dhani Harrison and Jones will also perform at that concert, scheduled for 28 September (14) at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, along with Brian Wilson, Brandon Flowers and 'Weird Al' Yankovic.
Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Sweet Relief, a charity that aids struggling musicians.
Gucci Mane's jail time has been extended after the rapper pleaded guilty to aggravated assault following an attack on a fan at an Atlanta, Georgia nightclub. According to Fulton County District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones, the incarcerated hip-hop star, real name Radric Davis, pleaded guilty on Monday (15Sep14) to hitting a man in the head with a vodka bottle in March, 2013.
Reports suggest the victim, an Army staff sergeant, was merely asking the rapper to pose for a photo with him.
Davis has been sentenced to serve three years behind bars. This will be added to the 39-month federal firearms sentence he was handed in August (14).
British actor Eddie Redmayne is planning to marry his fiancee in a romantic winter wedding.
The Les Miserables star proposed to Hannah Bagshawe in May (14) and he has now opened up about the couple's wedding plans. Redmayne reveals they have set the date for December (14) and want a festive ceremony complete with Christmas carols and snow.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "Hannah and I and Hannah's dad and my mum are all fans of the hymn In The Bleak Midwinter and wanted an excuse to sing that at a wedding... Hannah's like, 'Well you work at Pinewood Studios - can't you just fix up some fake snow?'"
An American artist has asked the Rolling Stones to give him credit for creating their iconic lips logo. The band's frontman Sir Mick Jagger is believed to have dreamed up the symbol with art student John Pasche in the early 1970s, but Sid Maurer claims he is actually behind the design.
The dispute has been detailed in a new book titled Sympathy for the Devil: The Birth of the Rolling Stones and the Death of Brian Jones by Paul Trynka. The book suggests Jones discovered Maurer's lips and tongue image in the late 1960s and even bought a picture from the painter before the image later became the band's logo.
Editors of Britain's Sunday Times newspaper report Maurer has said a "thank you" from the band would be "nice".
Guitarist Jones died in 1969 shortly after leaving the group.
