Jermaine Jackson says he took a biting musical swipe at his superstar sibling, Michael, because his younger brother had frozen him out of his life. In an interview, Jermaine explained that the cantankerous lyrics to his song "Word to the Badd!!," which criticize Michael for allegedly changing his skin color and obtaining plastic surgery, were written in retaliation for eight months of unreturned phone calls.

SEOUL - As he hops around the Western Pacific this week, President Obama hopes to unite much of Asia around a free-trade deal, updated alliances and a new power balance. But he first must persuade two of America's closest allies to stop squabbling. Jetting from Tokyo to Seoul on Friday morning, his second stop on the trip, Obama was between two nations mired in an old feud. South Koreans are furious over what they perceive as inadequate remorse from Japan over its brutal colonization of their nation from 1910 to 1945 and its use of Korean "comfort women" as sex slaves during World War II. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Korean President Park Geun-hye have traded slights and diplomatic digs for months.

Actress Bette Davis left her daughters and grandsons out of her nearly $1- million estate, according to a will filed for probate Monday. The bulk of the estate is split between her son and a close friend. Davis, who died on Oct. 6 of cancer at age 81, had been estranged from her daughter, Barbara Davis Hyman of Charlottesville, Va., since Hyman's book, "My Mother's Keeper," was published in 1985.

The Golden State Warriors choked. One of them did, anyway. Klay Thompson was talking to reporters after the game when he accidentally inhaled the deodorant spray Draymond Green was using two lockers away. Thompson's eyes watered and he coughed for a bit as he touched his throat. It was a momentary setback, nothing compared to what the Clippers experienced in a 109-105 loss Saturday to Golden State in a playoff opener. The Warriors were supposed to get beat without shot-blocking rebounder Andrew Bogut.

Even before AIDS-stricken rap star Eric (Eazy-E) Wright was laid to rest earlier this month, Wright's former lovers and business associates were haggling in Los Angeles Superior Court for control over his dwindling fortune. "It's sad and it's shocking," said the rapper's 26-year-old widow, Tomica Woods Wright, who has a year-old child by Wright and is pregnant with another, due in September. "A lot of people who claim to know (Wright) really didn't.

No more Mr. Nice Judge. Last week on "America's Got Talent," as the live shows kicked off, new judge Howard Stern proved two things: 1) He can still be combative and even cruel when he wants to be. 2) He is a very good arbiter of talent and predictor of America's tastes. Stern proved that again Tuesday night, when the show clicked into its new Tuesday/Wednesday schedule, going toe-to-toe with fellow judge Howie Mandel over a truly talent-free contestant who, just as Stern said, should never have made it through to the quarterfinals, depriving worthier contenders of a slot.

The "showdown" between Kanye West and 50 Cent, whose new albums both come out Tuesday, has played out -- it was ridiculous before it began and blatantly illustrated the music-loving public's eagerness to participate in media events even when they have no larger relevance or even basis in reality.

This story line is not original or entirely apt, but suddenly it is the chatter of this Laker-obsessed league: Shaq and Kobe, is this team big enough for both of them? Even though the on-court mini-brawl between the two stars occurred a month ago during voluntary workouts and was reported in The Times three weeks ago, it became coast-to-coast gossip fodder this week after Seattle SuperSonic center Olden Polynice, present at the workout, started theorizing about the incident's greater meanings.

Let me save San Diegans some postage and apologize for a crack in my last column. Through events too tangled to retell--the plot involves editors, Italian sailors and a teething baby--a paragraph was altered to make it appear that I believe America's Finest City is boring. It is, and I do, but to say so was not my intent.

For decades in Hollywood, Mickey Rooney led a charmed life. He acted opposite Judy Garland and Elizabeth Taylor, collecting award nominations for performances praised by the likes of Cary Grant, Gore Vidal and Tennessee Williams. He married starlets and beauty queens - eight times in all. On Tuesday, two days after his death at 93, it became clear how far his fortunes had fallen in recent years. Rooney's trust didn't have a dime. He owed back taxes to the IRS and the state Franchise Tax Board.

Arthur Smith, 93, a bluegrass musician who wrote and recorded the sizzling instrumentals "Guitar Boogie" and "Feuding Banjos," died Thursday at his home in Charlotte, N.C., his family announced. No cause was given. "Guitar Boogie," recorded with the Rambler Trio and showcasing Smith on guitar, helped inspire a country boogie trend when it was released in 1945. Three years later, after the MGM record label reissued it, the song rose to No. 8 on Billboard magazine's country popularity chart.

"You can't help people's perceptions, but I am sorry that people perceived that" as a feud, Ridley told the Huffington Post at the SXSW Film Festival, adding that he had said...

Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus were supposedly girlfriends - but are they anymore? Comments Perry made on TV while promoting her Prismatic tour Down Under made their way halfway around the world, and Cyrus is not happy. It all started Monday on Australia's "Sunrise" program, when one of the hosts riffed off Perry's hit "I Kissed a Girl" to lead into a discussion of the "Roar" singer's recent lip-lock with Cyrus during one of the "Wrecking Ball" singer's shows. "Scandalous!" Perry joked, before explaining what went down.

When Jackie Yerby and a small band of devout Catholics go to the cathedral for Mass this Ash Wednesday, they will be sending an unmistakable message. Pinned to their lapels will be big white buttons that proclaim, "Catholic Oregonians for Marriage Equality. " The newly formed group wants to show that "just because we're Catholic doesn't mean we don't support same-sex marriage," said Yerby, who served on the board of Catholic Charities of Portland for six years. "We support same-sex marriage because we are Catholic.

Federal Prohibition agent Eliot Ness' legendary campaign against Chicago mob boss Al Capone inspired the 1960s TV series "The Untouchables," a blockbuster Hollywood movie, countless books and perhaps even the comic-strip hero Dick Tracy. But a recent move in the Senate to name the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' glassy new Washington headquarters after the 1930s lawman has sparked an acrimonious debate over whether the storied crime fighter really deserves the honor.

From her majestic hilltop mansion overlooking Lake Victoria, Meena Madhvani has seen enough of the ups and downs of Ugandan life to justify her speaking with a certain tartness. In her time, she has entertained such luminaries as Indira Gandhi. Idi Amin proposed to her and, it is said, infuriated at being rebuffed, expelled tens of thousands of Uganda's Indian citizens. Rebels advancing on Kampala, the capital, camped in her fields of sugar cane.

The decision to return eight Los Angeles police officers involved in a controversial shooting to full duty sparked an unusual public spat between the police chief and his civilian boss Thursday. In a department-wide message sent Wednesday, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck announced the seven patrol officers and a sergeant will be retrained and then allowed to resume their regular duties. For the last year, the officers have been kept off the streets on desk assignments as department officials investigated the shooting, in which the officers fired more than 100 rounds after mistaking two women in a pickup truck for fugitive Christopher Dorner.

SACRAMENTO -- Treated waste exported from Los Angeles and other counties into the Central Valley would be subject to additional testing under a bil approved by the Assembly on Thursday. The measure, by Assemblyman Rudy Salas Jr. (D-Bakersfield), is the latest show of long-simmering tension in Kern County, where residents have objected to imports of sewage sludge, the semi-solid material leftover after treatment of human waste. The city of Los Angeles owns 4,700 acres in Kern County, where the sewage sludge, also known as "biosolids," is recycled as fertilizer.
