22 February 2013 7:00 AM, PST

On a late January afternoon, Clive Davis is sitting in his wood-paneled office in Sony Music's Manhattan headquarters.

Growing up in Brooklyn in the '30s and '40s, the legendary music mogul, now 80, was never obsessed with music - "My charts were baseball charts!" - and today sometimes even he can't believe his enormous success. »

Josh Brolin & Diane Lane: Inside Their Up-and-Down Marriage

22 February 2013 4:30 AM, PST

Josh Brolin and Diane Lane's eight-year marriage is ending in divorce, but the road wasn't always rocky for the occasionally tumultuous pair.

"Everything is easy." The simplicity seemingly continued for Brolin and his beauty, who wed the following year in a ceremony at the actor's central California ranch.

On Thursday, Nicki Minaj actually told a contestant, "Kudos to you for being really freshly, nicely groomed." They might as well have had a stagehand pull him offstage with an oversized vaudeville hook. After several weeks of good behavior by the judges, Thursday's episode showed a spark »
