  • Country singer John Berry revealed he is battling tonsil cancer, Billboard reported Tuesday. Berry, 59, announced the cancer in a video he recorded with his wife, Robin Berry, and posted to his Facebook page.  “We started off this year with a hiccup, and we want to tell you a little bit about that,” John Berry said in the video.  It is not the first time Berry has experienced a medical scare. On the day his song “Your Love Amazes Me” hit No. 1 in 1994, Berry had surgery to remove a benign brain tumor, Billboard reported. Berry said he became aware of his latest health issue in November before his latest tour, the magazine reported.“I had a little catch in my throat, it felt like, it felt exactly like, the skin of a Spanish peanut was stuck in my throat,” Berry said in the video.  After examining his tonsils Berry noticed they were swollen. Despite going to a doctor and receiving steroids and antibiotics, the problem persisted, Berry said. He completed his tour and then saw a doctor Jan. 4, Rolling Stone reported. A CT scan revealed two tumors in his tonsils, so he had surgery to remove them, the magazine reported. After receiving biopsy results, doctors told Berry he had tonsil cancer. Berry will begin a five-week chemotherapy and radiation treatment plan this week, Rolling Stone reported. “This particular cancer is one of the most highly treatable, and has an incredible cure rate,” Berry said in his video. According to his website, Berry had 20 singles on the country charts during the 1990s, six of which were Top 5 songs. He won a Grammy Award in 1996 for his participation in “Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel, Vol. 1.”
  • Kaye Ballard, the boisterous comedian and singer who appeared in Broadway musicals and nightclubs from New York to Las Vegas and starred with Eve Arden in the 1960s TV sitcom 'The Mothers-In-Law,' has died. She was 93. Ballard died Monday night at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, after a fight with kidney cancer, her friend Marguerite Gordon said Tuesday. 'The Mothers-In-Law,' in which Ballard starred with Eve Arden (of the 1950s sitcom 'Our Miss Brooks'), aired from 1967 to 1969. It marked a high point in a career that began when Ballard was 12 and lasted into the 21st century. She was on hand last week when a documentary on her life and career premiered at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. 'The Mothers-In-Law' was set in a Los Angeles suburb and featured its stars as women who become thorns in their married children's lives, with comedic results influenced by the screwball style of 'I Love Lucy.' Desi Arnaz, who starred with wife Lucille Ball in that classic sitcom, produced and directed 24 episodes of the Ballard-Arden show. The 'I Love Lucy' team of Bob Carroll Jr. and Madelyn Pugh Davis were the show's creators and lead writers. Ballard made a mark in every form of show business except movies. She did appear as a secondary player in a few films, including 1958's 'The Girl Most Likely' starring Jane Powell and in 1964's 'A House Is Not a Home,' but her high-octane personality may have been too potent for the big screen of that era and its more restrictive portrayals of women. Ballard's first real break came when she was singing in a Detroit nightclub, The Bowery. Comedy bandleader Spike Jones dropped in one night and quickly drafted the exuberant young singer into his musical contingent. For two years she toured with Jones' troupe, singing, playing the flute and tuba and engaging in the band's antics. She also sang with the bands of Vaughn Monroe and Stan Kenton. In 1945 she moved to New York and sought work in theater, appearing on Broadway in a small part in the revue 'Three to Make Ready.' She toured in summer stock and finally made a dent in New York as a madcap Helen of Troy in 1954's 'The Golden Apple,' drawing applause with her song 'Lazy Afternoon.' One critic called her performance 'a wonder of insinuation.' She also won critical praise for her role as 'The Incomparable Rosalie,' the magician's assistant and mistress in 1961's 'Carnival!,' a musicalized version of the movie 'Lili.' She sang 'Always, Always You' while stretched out in a box the jealous magician was piercing with swords. Ballard began working on TV in the early 1950s, becoming an in-demand performer on network variety programs including 'The Mel Torme Show' and those of Ed Sullivan and Perry Como. She also became a favorite of talk show hosts, making repeat appearances with Jack Paar, Merv Griffin and Johnny Carson. She was a regular on 'The Doris Day Show' in the 1970s and the 1990s TV series 'Due South.' Her nightclub act played in first-class venues including the Blue Angel in New York, Mr. Kelly's in Chicago, the Flamingo in Las Vegas and the hungry i in San Francisco. ___ The late AP Entertainment Writer Bob Thomas contributed to this report.
  • It's snowing in Paris, but not at Chanel, which showcased 18th-century-inspired frothy couture inside a sunlit Italian villa. For once, Karl Lagerfeld didn't take his usual bow, with the house saying the octogenarian designer was fatigued. Some highlights of the spring-summer 2019 couture collections on Tuesday: KARL LAGERFELD ABSENT Chanel's designer Lagerfeld, who has looked increasingly frail in recent seasons, did not come out to take a bow at the house's couture collections in Paris because he was 'tired.' In his place, his longtime studio director Virginie Viard appeared through a door in the lavish Italian villa decor that had been painstakingly created by the house. It immediately prompted surprise and visible sadness from many fashion editors attending the show at the Grand Palais. At the end of the first show at 10 a.m, an announcement explained the designer would appear for the noon presentation. But come noon, the German-born couturier was absent again. It's the first time in recent memory that Lagerfeld, who has designed for the Parisian stalwart since 1983 and was a contemporary of the late Yves Saint Laurent, has not been physically present to receive applause at the end of a show. In a statement, Chanel said 'for the traditional greeting at the end of the show, Mr. Lagerfeld, artistic director of Chanel, who was feeling tired' asked Viard 'to represent him' — without providing any further details. ___ VILLA CHANEL'S COUTURE A gentle geometry defined Chanel's summer silhouette on Tuesday — one that riffed on the decor's impressive architecture. The set this season featured a shimmering Italian Chanel villa center-stage, with steps that led the gaze down to myriad real palm trees, grass and a rectangular pool. Shivering and dripping guests were momentarily transported away from Paris' subzero temperatures and snow to enjoy a moment of summer bliss, and the clothes' pastel hues glistened in floodlights evoking warm sunshine. Slits in the skirt and long vertical lines in the center of the body were a central theme in this season's feminine 62-look collection. A silvery skirt-suit, a house signature, opened the show with a slit running down the leg to the season's new shoe: a backless pointed heel with a full-fronted panel. ___ SOFIA COPPOLA 'Marie Antoinette' director Sofia Coppola was among VIP guests invited to admire Villa Chanel's 18th-century full skirted designs. 'I did think of Marie Antoinette when I saw the pink dresses at the end. They were beautiful,' she told AP. '(It evoked) a bygone era to see the dresses with the feathers up close,' she added. Coppola, who won the best director award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017, has come a long way since she first forged ties with the Parisian house as a nervous teenage intern. Bond girl Carole Bouquet had helped the young Coppola find the stint. 'I was really intimidated ... It was thrilling to be 15 in Paris in the '80s at Chanel,' she said. 'It was during the couture, so it was incredible seeing it being made.' ___ ARMANI PRIVE IS ETERNAL There is something timeless about Giorgio Armani's couture. The timelessness is not just apparent in the eternal elegance of his styles, which on Tuesday showed off the fashion icon's famed cutting skills through tailored jackets. (Armani cut his teeth in menswear tailoring). But it's also apparent in the way the couturier evokes an imagined reality. The Armani Prive collections thus throw to the wind any real interest in evoking a spring-summer season, for instance, or a trend or any up-to-the-minute fad. At the second of Tuesday's double-shows, alongside Chanel, Armani Prive showcased a series of archetypically couture looks in the exclusive Hotel d'Evreux in the Place Vendome that made statements of their own with shimmer and bold color. Billowing silken Asian-style pants shimmered below tops that contrasted in their color or texture — in checks, sequins or paillettes. The designs could have featured in any of the designers shows of the last few years without looking out of place. But as Yves Saint Laurent once said, 'fashions come and go, style is eternal.' ___ ALEXIS MABILLE'S VERSATILE BOW French designer Alexis Mabille's signature bow made a recurrent appearance in varying sizes, styles and colors at his demure couture display Tuesday. It began as a front detail on a truncated, shoulder-less little black dress. Then, the mischievous item cropped up as a cinched belt on a coral red gown or a long pink satin one with divergent stripes. Going retro, the bow was conjured up as a '70s jabot collar on a Farrah Fawcett-like blue silk column dress. But the piece de resistance was the detail's cameo as an oversized bust detailing, giving the feeling that the model in a red tulle gown could be unwrapped. Other great ideas in the 45-piece display included a look that used swathes of bright yellow ruffled silk to cocoon its wearer. It was, however, the versatile bow that stole the show. ___ Thomas Adamson can be followed at Twitter.com/ThomasAdamson_K
  • Oscar voters on Tuesday showered Alfonso Cuaron's 'Roma' and Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Favourite' with a leading 10 nominations for the 91st Academy Awards, while two dominant but contentious Hollywood forces — Netflix and Marvel — each scored their first best picture nomination. Though many expected 'A Star Is Born,' Bradley Cooper's revival of one of Hollywood's most remade show business myths, to top the nominations, Cooper was surprisingly overlooked as director and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences instead put its fullest support behind a pair of indies by international directors. With the black-and-white, Spanish-language 'Roma,' Netflix scored its first best picture nomination, a prize the streaming giant has dearly sought. Marvel, too, joined the club with Ryan Coogler's 'Black Panther,' the first superhero movie ever nominated for best picture. Cuaron tied the record for most decorated Oscar nominee ever for one film with four individual nods for 'Roma,' his deeply personal exhumation of his Mexico City childhood. Cuaron was nominated for direction, cinematography, original screenplay and best picture. Only Orson Welles ('Citizen Kane') and Warren Beatty (who did it twice with 'Reds' and 'Heaven Can Wait') have matched the four-nod feat. Cuaron, previously a six-time nominee and winner for directing 'Gravity,' said by phone from London that the nominations for such a personal film were more meaningful to him, as was the attention for a film about a humble indigenous domestic worker (Yalitza Aparicio, who was nominated for best actress). He praised Netflix for its commitment to his film. 'Cinema needs the opportunity to be diverse,' Cuaron said. 'What mainstream cinema and the theatrical experience has lacked in general is diversity. And I'm talking about diversity in terms of stories and characters and ways of doing films.' Just as rewarded Tuesday was Lanthimos' period romp, which resounded most in the acting categories thanks to its trio of actresses: Olivia Colman in the best actress category, and Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone in supporting. Along with 'Roma,' ''Black Panther' and 'The Favourite,' the eight nominees for best picture were: Peter Farrelly's interracial road trip tale 'Green Book,' Spike Lee's white supremacist evisceration 'BlacKkKlansman,' the Freddie Mercury biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' Adam McKay's highly critical Dick Cheney biopic 'Vice' and 'A Star Is Born,' which still landed eight nominations, including best actress for Lady Gaga and best supporting actor for Sam Elliott. 'Black Panther,' the year's biggest domestic box-office hit and a bona fide cultural event, finally cracked the category long kryptonite to superheroes . Despite the overwhelming popularity of comic book movies, they had previously been shunned from Hollywood's top honor to the consternation of some industry insiders. After 'The Dark Knight' was snubbed in 2009, the academy expanded the best picture category from five to up to 10 nominees. The lush, big-budget craft of 'Black Panther' was rewarded with seven total nominations, including Hannah Beachler and Jay Hart's production design, Terence Blanchard's score, Ruth Carter's costume design and Kendrick Lamar and SZA's song 'All the Stars.' Beachler became the first African-American nominated for production design. 'To break down a wall like that, to be your ancestors' wildest dreams, to show other young women of color and boys and girls that you can do whatever you want no matter what struggles you have in your life — all of that. That's what it means to me,' said Beachler, talking by phone from the Cincinnati set of Todd Haynes' latest. There has likewise been resistance among some academy members to awarding Netflix films since the company typically bypasses movie theaters. Steven Spielberg has said Netflix films are more like TV movies and deserve an Emmy, not an Oscar . Netflix altered its policy for 'Roma' and the Coen brothers' 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' (which earned three unexpected nods), premiering them first in theaters before debuting them on Netflix. In turn, it was rewarded with a 15 nominations overall, second only to Disney's 17. Three decades after landing a writing nod for 1989's Do the Right Thing,' Spike Lee was nominated for his first directing Oscar for 'BlacKkKlansman.' 'Thirty years is a long time, ain't it?' Lee said by phone Tuesday with a hearty laugh. The 61-year-old filmmaker lamented the oversight of his lead actor, John David Washington, whom he consoled with a prediction of future awards: 'Young blood, you'll be here.' But Lee took pride in his film's six nominations, and he likes his odds. ''BlacKkKlansman' is the dark horse — pun intended,' said Lee, cackling. 'You know what? That's fitting. I've always been an underdog, from the very beginning, from film school. That narrative has not changed. And I like that position.' The other directing nominees were Lanthimos, Cuaron, Pawel Pawlikowski ('Cold War') and McKay ('Vice') — a field that, a year after continued focus on gender inequality in Hollywood, included no female directors. Some had campaigned for Debra Granik ('Leave No Trace') or Chloe Zhao ('The Rider') to become the sixth woman ever nominated for best director. The nominations, announced by Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross from the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, included plenty of surprises. In a blockbuster year for documentaries , the Fred Rogers documentary 'Won't You Be My Neighbor' was snubbed despite more than $22 million in ticket sales (a huge sum for a doc). Instead the nominees were 'Free Solo,' ''Hale County This Morning, This Evening,' ''Minding the Gap,' ''Of Fathers and Sons' and the Ruth Bader Ginsberg portrait 'RBG.' The acting categories played out largely as expected with a few notable differences. Along with Lady Gaga, Colman and Aparicio, the best lead actress nominees were Glenn Close ('The Wife') and Melissa McCarthy ('Can You Ever Forgive Me?'). In best actor, the expected front runner Christian Bale was nominated for his transformation into Cheney in 'Vice' (Bale's fourth Oscar nod), along with Cooper, Willem Dafoe ('At Eternity's Gate'), Rami Malek ('Bohemian Rhapsody') and Viggo Mortensen ('Green Book'). The nominees for best supporting actress were Amy Adams ('Vice'), Marina De Tavira ('Roma'), Regina King ('If Beale Street Could Talk'), along with Stone and Weisz. Tavira was something a surprise, likely unseating Claire Foy of 'First Man.' But perhaps the biggest acting snub came in best supporting actor, where Timothee Chalamet, who broke through last year with 'Call Me By Your Name,' was left out for his drug addict turn in 'Beautiful Boy.' Nominated were previous winner Mahershala Ali ('Green Book'), Adam Driver ('BlacKkKlansman'), Richard E. Grant ('Can You Ever Forgive Me?') and Sam Rockwell ('Vice'), who won the trophy last year. With nominees like 'The Favourite,' ''Can You Ever Forgive Me,' ''Green Book' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis called it 'a banner year for LGBTQ inclusion.' Some Oscar regulars padded their career tallies. Joel and Ethan Coen notched their seventh screenwriting nomination. Close, never a winner, landed her seventh acting nod. Costume designer Sandy Powell received her 13th and 14th nominations, for 'The Favourite' and 'Mary Poppins Returns.' But the nominees were also crowded with first-timers, including new performers (Aparicio) and veteran ones (Grant, Elliott, Colman, King). Paul Schrader, the 72-year-old 'Taxi Driver' scribe, was nominated for his first Oscar for the script to his religious thriller 'First Reformed.' The lead-up to Tuesday's nominations was rocky for both the film academy and some of the contending movies. Shortly after being announced as host, comedian Kevin Hart was forced to withdraw over years-old homophobic tweets that the comedian eventually apologized for. That has left the Oscars, one month before the Feb. 24 ceremony, without an emcee, and likely to stay that way. Some film contenders, like 'Green Book' and the Freddie Mercury biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' have suffered waves of backlash, even as their awards have mounted. Before landing five nominations Tuesday, 'Green Book' — which has been criticized for relying on racial tropes — won the top award from the Producers Guild , an honor that has been a reliable Oscar barometer. In the 10 years since the Oscars expanded its best-picture ballot, the PGA winner has gone on to win best picture eight times. Last year's Oscar telecast was watched by a record low of 26.5 million viewers . This year will at least feature a number of popular nominees, including 'Black Panther,' ''Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'A Star Is Born.' Just how many people have seen 'Roma,' though, remains a mystery. Netflix doesn't release box office receipts or streaming viewership. It's also an unusually international crop of nominees. It's only the second time that directors from two foreign language films were nominated for best director (Cuaron and Poland's Pawlikowski). 'Roma' is aiming to be the first foreign language film to win best picture. Some of that could potentially be attributed to a changing academy, which has greatly expanded its ranks in recent years to diversify its membership, including more overseas members. Up for best foreign language film are 'Roma,' ''Cold War,' ''Capernaum' (Lebanon), 'Never Look Away' (Germany) and the Palme d'Or winner, 'Shoplifters' (Japan). A year after taking home best picture with 'The Shape of Water,' Fox Searchlight tied Netflix with 15 nominations, even as Searchlight and its parent studio, 20th Century Fox, are in the process of being acquired by the Walt Disney Co. If their releases counted under Disney, the new mega-studio would have dwarfed all studios with 37 nominations. ___ AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr in Los Angeles contributed to this report. ___ For full coverage of the Oscars, visit: https://apnews.com/AcademyAwards
  • Chanel's octogenarian designer Karl Lagerfeld, who has looked increasingly frail in recent seasons, did not come out to take a bow at the house's couture show in Paris, something the company attributed to him being tired. It is the first time in recent memory that Lagerfeld, who has designed for the house since 1983, has not come out to receive applause at the end of one of his shows. His studio director Virginie Viard appeared in his place, emerging from the door of a lavish Italian 'villa' that was the set painstakingly created by the house to showcase its spring-summer designs. Chanel told The Associated Press that Lagerfeld asked Viard to represent him because he 'was feeling tired,' but did not provide any further details.

  • A man identified by authorities Tuesday as the suspect in the fatal shooting of a teenager at a suburban Chicago mall was previously convicted of armed robbery and had been an acquaintance of the victim. Orland Park Police identified the suspect as 19-year-old parolee Jakharr Williams of University Park. The department said in a news release that Williams, who fled after the shooting and has not been arrested, should be considered armed and dangerous. Police said Williams and 18-year-old Javon Britten of Richton Park were arguing in a food court at Orland Square Mall Monday when Williams allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired several shots. Britten was struck and a bystander's leg was grazed by a bullet. Police said Britten staggered to a nearby clothing store, where he collapsed. He was pronounced dead at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn a short time later. According to the Illinois Department of Corrections website and Orland Park Police, Williams was convicted of armed robbery in 2017, and that he served a little more than a year in prison before he was released in June last year. Orland Park is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southwest of Chicago.
  • In the legal equivalent of a Hail Mary pass, two New Orleans Saints season ticket holders have asked a judge to reverse the result of the NFC championship game that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl — or order a do-over. Tuesday's state court filing says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should implement a league rule governing 'extraordinarily unfair acts.' Remedies include reversal of a game's result or the rescheduling of a game — in its entirety or from the point when the act occurred. At issue is the failure of officials to call interference or roughness penalties when a Rams player leveled a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet hit at a crucial point in Sunday's game. The NFL hasn't yet responded. A hearing is scheduled Monday.
  • A man is under arrest in Utah after police say he posted on Facebook about 'killing as many girls as I see' the same weekend that Women's Marches were held around the U.S. Christopher W. Cleary, 27, wrote he wanted to be 'the next mass shooter,' because he had never had a girlfriend and he was still a virgin, according to jail documents filed by police in the city of Provo. He wanted to 'make it right' with women who had turned him down and also said 'there's nothing more dangerous than a man ready to die,' the documents said. Cleary is from Denver and Colorado police on Saturday contacted officers in Provo, south of Salt Lake City, where Cleary had checked into an AirBnB rental a day earlier. With help from the FBI, officers tracked Cleary to a restaurant and arrested him on suspicion of a felony threat of terrorism charge. The posts did not mention the marches but investigators were concerned because they were happening that day in Provo and Salt Lake City, along with dozens of other cities, the documents said. Cleary acknowledged making the posts, but said he deleted them after receiving threats in response, police said. He told investigators he had an impulse-control disorder and was suicidal. Colorado authorities said Cleary is on probation after stalking and threatening women there, according to Utah police documents. He was being held without bail in Utah, and authorities were expected to seek his extradition to Colorado. No attorney or publicly listed phone number was immediately available for Cleary.
