OutKast will headline the 2014 BET Experience, the three-day music festival scheduled for June in downtown Los Angeles. Black Entertainment Television is expected to make an official announcement Monday that the Atlanta duo will topline the festival's rap-heavy showcase, which includes Rick Ross, ASAP Rocky and DJ Khaled. When BET announced in March the first set of performers for the festival, which will be in its second year, the network teased a “very special hip-hop reunion you won't want to miss.” RELATED: The inside story on OutKast That reunion is OutKast, which recently ended a seven-year hiatus with a headlining slot at the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival this month.

Amanda Ross-Ho makes art that engages in nonstop translation - ephemeral drawings morph into solid rooms, miniature sizes balloon into maximum magnitudes, magazine advertisements turn into gold-finished jewelry, childhood scribbles change into grown-up philosophical musings. She's the Babel fish of contemporary art. "Amanda Ross-Ho: Teeny Tiny Woman," her wry and seriously playful show at the Museum of Contemporary Art branch at the Pacific Design Center, is large in ambition and generous in rewards.

Diana Ross, in a ruffled crimson dress layered with sparkles, strutted across the stage Saturday night at the Museum of Contemporary Art's gala, belting out the lyrics to a classic tune that had particular resonance: “Did you think I'd crumble, did you think I'd lay down and die?” she crooned. “Oh no, not I. I will survive …” The crowd, thick with tuxedos and floor-length gowns, bobbed and cheered, iPhones swaying in the air to capture the soul-pop diva. It was only a year ago, after all, that MOCA was burdened by financial instability so severe that the museum nearly was forced to merge with another institution and lose its independence.

I find it ironic, but most appropriate, that the announcement of H. Ross Perot's intent to launch his campaign for President was published March 20, the first day of spring. What a welcomed breath of fresh air and sunlight on this rainy day. Spring--the beginning of a new season, a time when the weather becomes warmer, plants revive and the cycle of life is renewed once again. How appropriate indeed following the latest scandal(s) to hit Congress: use of the "club" bank and post office as King George (I can call him that; I helped vote him into office)

It's difficult to imagine that April Ross and Jennifer Kessy would be flying under the radar at the AVP Nivea Tour Huntington Beach Open, but there sure hasn't been much chatter about the second-seeded women's team. Most of the talk is about Misty May-Treanor and her new partnership with Nicole Branagh, or Elaine Youngs and Rachel Scott reuniting after a bitter breakup in 2006. But based on recent play, Ross and Kessy — both former USC players — should be on the minds of all the other teams.

Long before she became an iconic TV mom, Marion Ross -- a.k.a. Mrs. Cunningham from "Happy Days" -- dreamed of becoming an actress growing up in the small town of Albert Lea, Minn. She recalls being "transported" by movies, especially in the snowy winter months when getting to a theater was no easy task. "We would walk across the ice to go to the theater," Ross said in a recent interview. "Coming home it was dark and you would cross the frozen ice. I would be weeping and standing under the streetlight with the light coming down and snow would be falling in my face.

A former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy testified Friday that he never planned to buy cocaine with $151,000 found in the trunk of his rented car but thought the cash was to be used for "money laundering." In Rickey Ross' first comments about the case since he was arrested in 1992, he testified that he was set up by a government informant, who had promised financial assistance and lucrative business opportunities if Ross transported the cash for him.

The news swept the Internet on Monday after the New York Post reported that former Clippers player Quinton Ross had been found dead, his body stuffed in a garbage bag and buried in a shallow grave in New York. The report was picked up by several news organizations, and was the No. 1 trending story for a while on Google, Yahoo and Facebook. Turns out it wasn't true. Yes, a man named Quinton Ross had been found dead, but it wasn't the Quinton Ross who played in the NBA for seven seasons.

AUSTIN, Texas - Rick Ross had come to South by Southwest, as indeed he goes most places, to boast. "I just celebrated my fifth No. 1 album," the Miami rapper said Saturday night at the Fader Fort. Last week, Ross's so-so "Mastermind" debuted atop the Billboard 200, beating out competition that included Pharrell Williams' heavily promoted "G I R L" and the Oscar-winning "Frozen" soundtrack. The record, he wrote on Twitter before the show, "contains only the highest grade of execution.

Give Rick Ross credit for playing to his strengths. Though the Miami rapper's new album "Mastermind" is largely a disappointment -- a stale rehash of ideas he's served up far more convincingly elsewhere -- Ross wisely focused on the record's best song for his performance Thursday night on "The Arsenio Hall Show. " And he didn't do " Sanctified " by himself, either, but brought out two of his A-list pals to the delight of Hall's audience: Kanye West and Big Sean, both of whom appear on the track on "Mastermind.

Not two hours after he performed his passion project in an 88-seat theater on a recent Sunday night, Ross Golan made the rounds at a Grammy after-party hosted by Daft Punk, smiling as Jay Z and Beyoncé glided by and making nice with Madonna and Skrillex and Pharrell Williams. Inhabiting either world would have been inconceivable five years ago to Golan, whose first rock band had failed, whose second was flailing and whose days were spent toiling in his condo. Which was in foreclosure.

Shulamit Aloni Israeli champion of civil rights Shulamit Aloni, an Israeli legislator who championed civil rights and was fiercely critical of Israel's treatment of Palestinians, died Friday at her home in a Tel Aviv suburb. Meretz, the party she helped found and led, announced her death in a statement but did not reveal the cause. She was widely reported to be 85, but her son Nimrod told the New York Times that she was 86 and born in Tel Aviv in 1927. Aloni fought in the 1948 war that led to Israel's creation; and after winning a seat in Israel's parliament, the Knesset, in 1965, she served for 28 years and held a number of cabinet posts.
