Jon Bon Jovi has addressed his daughter Stephanie Bongiovi's recent heroin overdose, calling the incident "human" and expressing appreciation for fans' concern. Bongiovi, 19, was arrested a week ago at her Hamilton College dorm after an overdose was reported. She was charged with misdemeanor drug offenses, but the charges were quickly dropped under a New York state law granting immunity to those involved when official help is sought during a life-threatening overdose. "It's human," Bon Jovi told Fox 11 on Tuesday night while promoting the soundtrack to "Stand Up Guys.

Jon Bon Jovi's daughter Stephanie Bongiovi, who was arrested Wednesday after a suspected heroin overdose in her college dorm, found herself off the legal hook Thursday after charges were dropped. Bongiovi, a student at Hamilton College, benefited from of a 2011 New York state law that prohibits prosecution of folks who OD or who call for help in a life-threatening, drug-related situation, according to the Utica Observer-Dispatch . "By law, they have immunity. I can't prosecute them even if I wanted to," Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara told the Observer-Dispatch, saying the quick decision to drop the charges had nothing to do with the case's celebrity element.

A roundup of entertainment headlines for Tuesday. Despite Internet rumors, Jon Bon Jovi is not dead. And he proved it on Twitter. ( Los Angeles Times ) Bon Jovi is hardly the first celeb to be reported dead while he's still kicking (and tweeting). Here's a look at some celebrity death hoaxes of yore. ( Los Angeles Times ) "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer is out, and it's explosive. ( Los Angeles Times ) Movie review: "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" lacks the humanity that made the books and the Swedish films successful.

Ozzy Osbourne isn't sexy. Heavy metal's main superstar attracts fans through outrageousness and showmanship. But he's not what heavy metal, which has been down and out lately, needs right now. It needs sex appeal, a rather large dose of it too. This sexy Messiah could attract females (heavy metal is still mostly geared to young males). It needs a young, handsome, macho singer who can electrify metal addicts but also has enough mainstream appeal to make the cover of People magazine.

From Elvis Presley onward, charismatic rock singers have struggled to make the transition to leading men on the big screen. Movies starring Mick Jagger and David Bowie have been hit-and-miss affairs. Roger Daltrey and Sting never quite got their screen careers into second gear. And few of us wax nostalgic about the film actor formerly known as Prince. So what makes Jon Bon Jovi think he'll do any better? "Yeah, I know, I know," he says with a groan. "It's a cliche, right?

With no new Bon Jovi studio album since 2009, fans of the age-defying arena-rock outfit have had to content themselves this year with "Aftermath of the Lowdown," guitarist Richie Sambora's strikingly confessional solo set.
