Question of the Day
Luciano staying put
Tenor Luciano Pavarotti has been given the go-ahead by doctors to leave the hospital where he was admitted last week with a fever, but he plans to remain for a few more days just to be sure, his wife said yesterday.
Nicoletta Mantovani, told reporters that her husband had chosen to stay because he feels more tranquil there than at home, says Associated Press, citing a report from the ANSA news agency.
Mr. Pavarotti, 71, underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer in July 2006 in a New York hospital. At the time, he had been preparing to resume his farewell tour.
Garrett slugs photog
According to the New York Daily News, Emmy winner Brad Garrett was caught on film losing his cool Sunday night outside a Malibu, Calif. sushi restaurant. The 6-foot-8 actor, 47, was furious that Joe Mansour, 38, had called him a “racist.” Mr. Mansour, who is from Senegal, insists that a month ago Mr. Garrett told him: “Man, I didn’t know they had black people in Malibu. We don’t like you here.” Moments after Sunday’s verbal sparring started, Mr. Garrett got physical, lashing out at another photographer, a TMZ.com lensman, and knocking a light from atop his camera.
Mr. Garrett’s manager, Glenn Robbins, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail from AP seeking comment.
Harvey Levin, TMZ’s managing editor, said the Web site wouldn’t press charges because the camera wasn’t damaged, AP said.
ITunes has Lennon
Apple yesterday announced the debut of the John Lennon solo catalog on the ITunes Store (www.itunes.com).
