--Helen Mirren won an Oscar for her portrayal of Elizabeth II in The Queen, but the 65-year-old actress isn't as interested in the real life royals. In an interview with England's The Mail, she said: "I know this sounds ridiculous, but I think people getting married should be a private thing. I hope [Prince William and Kate Middleton] will also do an absolutely private wedding just for them." [CNN]

--Newlywed LeAnn Rimes might be blissfully married, but she's not happy with the "double standard" against women in the country music industry. In a Sunday night special Backstory: LeAnn Rimes on the Great American County station, the 28-year-old singer lamented: "You know, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash and all those guys--God knows what they did back in the day! And if a woman did it, you were never accepted or forgiven. But if it was a guy, it was just their life… It's quite interesting to have to navigate those waters as a woman in this business."
