Honor for Jackson After Weeks of Controversy

11 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Michael Jackson opened up his Neverland Valley Ranch to TV cameras last night so he could appear at the Billboard Music Awards without leaving his house. The pop superstar, who has been caught up in legal battles and child welfare controversy in recent weeks, chose not to attend the ceremony at the MGM Grand at the last minute - where he was to be honored for his 1982 landmark album Thriller. Pal Chris Tucker insisted on presenting the King Of Pop with his award and persuaded the eccentric star to let him present him with his special award from Jackson's California home. The "Man In The Mirror" hitmaker paid tribute to his fans, insisting, "I couldn't be me without you." »

Spacey's Political Cameo

4 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey made an impromptu appearance at Britain's Labor Party Conference yesterday. The actor joined former President Bill Clinton - who made a speech at the ruling government party's annual event in Blackpool, northeast England - and received a warm welcome from delegates. The American Beauty star then led a standing ovation as Prime Minister Tony Blair took to the stage. The actor was later spotted dining last night with Clinton and Labor Party spin doctor Alistair Campbell, at Blackpool's not-so-swanky McDonalds restaurant. Spacey and Clinton recently completed a goodwill tour of African nations with Rush Hour star Chris Tucker. »

Chris Tucker 'Too Rich' To Feud With Chris Rock

27 June 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Chris Tucker insists there's no reason why he and fellow funnyman Chris Rock should be feuding - because they're both outrageously rich. At the moment both Tucker, 29, and Rock, 36, are writing and preparing separate comedies about a White House occupied by a black commander-in-chief, with both listed as directors and lead actors. Tucker's project is entitled Mr. President, while Rock's is called Head Of State. But while Tucker clearly came up with the concept as early as 1999, Rock is the one who'll start shooting his flick in July, which has sparked reports of a bad blood between the pair. But Tucker refuses to accept that he and Rock could even contemplate embarking on a personal feud, because they both have very healthy wallets. He says, "I've heard all the reports that Chris and I are supposed to be feuding, but why would we do that? There's room for everybody to do what they want to do. He does his thing and I do mine. And anyway, rich people don't get mad at each other and feud. You can't get mad when you live in a mansion!" »

Tucker's Wake-Up Call

14 June 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Comedian Chris Tucker has altered his life for good--and that is no joke. The Rush Hour actor recently returned from a trip to Africa where he came face-to-face with death and starvation of hundreds of people. And the suffering he saw first hand has changed the way he lives his life in America. Tucker, who returned from his two-week trek last month, admits, "I am not into the worldly possessions like I once was. It was a wake-up call to see this part of the world and it makes you size up what is important in your own life." The $20 million-a-movie man toured refugee camps as part of a United Nations fact-finding mission. He adds, "There were these women who had the AIDS virus and they were writing memoirs for their children because they know that they will not be around when their children grow up. It really touched me to see that happen in every village I visited." »
