Boycott Calls: "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy wants people to boycott Newsweek until it apologizes for the article about gay actors playing straight roles, that many say was homophobic. In a statement released to Entertainment Weekly, Murphy calls the article "damaging, needlessly cruel and mind-blowingly bigoted." Other actors including Kristen Chenoweth have condemned the article. Newsweek writer Ramin Setoodeh responded to Chenoweth's comments in an article saying "the point of my essay was not to disparage my own community, but to examine an issue that is being swept under the rug."
Taking a Stand: Cypress Hill cancels an upcoming Arizona concert in protest of the state's new immigration law, Perez Hilton reports. "This decision was made in an effort to show support and solidarity with those, undocumented and otherwise, being directly affected by this unconstitutional law," the group said in a statement.
Man of Steal: Poor Anne Hathaway. Her last boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, was jailed for a scam that made him millions from unsuspecting investors. Her new beau, Adam Shulman, was caught on camera stealing part of a mural from a construction site, the New York Post reports. Luckily for him, the New York contractor says he won't file charges against Shulman as long as he returns the artwork. Hathaway hasn't said anything about the allegations.
Coach Quits: Tiger Woods could soon be wife-less and coach-less. His longtime coach quit Monday night, via text message, People reports. "I believe at this time that it is in both of our best interests for me to step aside as Tiger's coach," Hank Haney said in a statement to The Golf Channel. Haney didn't really give a reason for his resignation.
Professionally Parting: Britney Spears and Jason Trawick, who is also her agent, have parted ways professionally. "They have decided to end their professional relationship to focus on their personal relationship," a Spears rep tells People. The couple started dating last summer. There have even been rumors they are engaged, but they've dodged questions on that topic.
Caught in the Act: Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez just need to come clean already. There have been plenty of reports that the two are together and now an eyewitness tells People they spent A-Rods off time while in Boston for a series against the Red Sox in a suite together in a luxury hotel. The source says the dynamic duo never even left the room.
Adding Author: She's a supermodel, talk-shot host, executive producer and a reality-TV show queen, but now Tyra Banks wants to add author to her titles. "I said I was going to do it, and here it is!" Banks wrote on her website, Tyra.com, Tuesday. The novel is called "Modelland" and Tyra says it takes you to a place "where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye."
