A cast member of the MTV reality show "Buckwild" is facing a drug charge in West Virginia, The Associated Press reports.
Salwa Amin, 24, was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. She is being held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond.
State police say a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday at a home in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers say they found oxycodone pills and heroin.
Jail administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesn't want to talk to the media.
MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network doesn't have any comment.
"Buckwild," which shows wild young West Virginians, has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the state's youth.
Mr. "SexyBack" performed back-to-back Sunday night.
After Justin Timberlake's performance at the Grammy Awards, the pop star electrified during a 90-minute set at the Hollywood Palladium, the AP reports.
Timberlake sang familiar hits - from "Senorita" to "Rock Your Body" to "My Love" - as well as new R&B numbers from his anticipated new album. He was easygoing onstage - as if he'd never left.
Like at the Grammys, Jay-Z joined in for "Suit & Tie." Beyonce was among the VIPs looking on, along with Kelly Rowland, Neil Patrick Harris, Timbaland, Lance Bass and others.
Timberlake's new album, "The 20/20 Experience," is due out March 19.
This is shaping up to be the year of Beyonce.
After a powerful Super Bowl halftime show, the singer, 31, is embarking on the Mrs. Carter world tour - and just added a special performance, People reports.
Beyonce will return to New Orleans' Superdome to headline one of three concerts during the 19th annual Essence Festival, the magazine confirms.
But that's not all for the ever-busy mom to Blue Ivy. Aside from her own HBO special "Life Is But a Dream" slated to air on Saturday, Beyonce will also sit down with Oprah for an episode of "Next Chapter" on OWN - which will also air Saturday.
Last year's Grammys saw record-high ratings, thanks in part to the tribute put together after the sudden death of the late, great Whitney Houston the night before. So this year's broadcast had a very high bar to leap over if CBS wanted to see more landmark ratings, E! News reports.
But Taylor Swift throwing shade at ex Harry Styles, Rihanna snuggling with Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake's retro performance weren't enough to beat the 2012 Grammys.
However, Sunday night's telecast of the 55th Annual Grammy Awards still brought in big ratings - the second largest audience since 1993, in fact, with 28.4 million total viewers tuning in to music's biggest night.
In comparison, last year's Grammys brought in a whopping 40 million viewers. That's a 30 percent drop, but again, the 2012 ceremony also served as the music industry's farewell to Whitney Houston.
Ahmad Rashad and Sale Johnson are ending their marriage.
The sportscaster, 63, and Johnson, who wed in 2007, confirmed the news to People in a joint statement on Monday.
"This process, while difficult, is and has always been amicable - despite erroneous press reports to the contrary - and we remain committed to jointly raising our daughter," they say. "We appreciate the respect of our privacy during this trying time."
This will be the fourth divorce for Rashad, while Johnson was previously married to Johnson & Johnson billionaire Woody Johnson. Rashad inherited three stepdaughters from his ex's former marriage, including Casey Johnson, who died in 2010.
Geoff Johns is stepping down as the writer of DC Entertainment's Green Lantern, capping a nearly decade-long stint that saw him return the space cop to the forefront of the publisher's superhero titles as well as scores of new lanterns - good and bad - spanning the color spectrum, the AP reports.
Johns also is the publisher's chief creative officer. He says he's leaving the series in May to focus his energies and creativity on the Justice League family of books, as well as Aquaman, the sea-going hero who's found new life amid DC's relaunch in 2011.
Johns said Monday that while he's leaving the "Green Lantern" book, he's bringing some of the Green Lantern Corps creations with him. That includes Simon Baz, who made headlines because of his Muslim faith and American origin.
