Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott engaged

Hillary Scott, vocalist for the country music trio Lady Antebellum, is engaged to musician Chris Tyrell, People is reporting. The duo, who met on the Tim McGraw tour last year, became betrothed over the July 4 weekend. “Chris proposed exactly the way I’ve always dreamed,” Scott, 25, said. “Our families were close by, but it was just us out on a beautiful deck overlooking a lake in East Tennessee.” Lady Antebellum is currently on a summer tour, while Tyrell, 24, is playing drums for country music band Eden’s Edge on Brad Paisley’s H20 II tour. No wedding date has been set.

Michelle Yeoh deported from Myanmar

Malaysian actress and former Bond girl Michelle Yeoh was deported from Myanmar on June 22 just hours after entering the country because she’d been blacklisted by the government there, according to the Associated Press. Officials did not give a reason for the action, but Yeoh is the star of The Lady, Luc Besson’s upcoming film about Myanmar’s Nobel Peace Prize winning pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who spent nearly two decades as a political prisoner.

Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher marries

It’s time to pop out the “Champagne Supernova.” Oasis crooner Noel Gallagher has married his long-time girlfriend Sara MacDonald. According to People, Gallagher, 44, said “I do” to MacDonald this past Saturday at the Lime Wood Hotel in New Forest, England. Watching the newlyweds share their first dance to The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” was funnyman Russell Brand, who once hosted UK radio show TalkSPORT with Gallagher and reportedly served as best man.

On the regret list were Brand’s wife, Katy Perry, who was busy with an engagement on her California Dreams tour, and Gallagher’s embattled brother, Liam. The brothers famously brawled throughout Oasis’s rise to fame, and their escalating conflicts eventually undid the group. “I’ve not been invited to his wedding,” Liam told the Chicago Sun-Times last Friday before a gig with his new band, Beady Eye.

This is Gallagher’s second marriage. He and his new wife have two sons — 3-year-old Donovan and 8-month-old Sonny — in addition to Gallagher’s 11-year-old daughter, Anais, whom he had with first wife, Meg Matthews.

Sean Kingston happily on the mend after Jet Ski accident

R&B singer Sean Kingston is happy to be on the road to recovery after a life-threatening Jet Ski accident and a touch-and-go stay in the Miami’s Ryder Trauma Center.

Kingston (real name Kisean Anderson) tweeted this past Sunday, “Feeling alot better! GOD IS GREAT!” He posted a picture of himself making a peace sign and added for his fans, “Thanks for all the prayers and support! Love you ALL!”

Miami native Kingston was joined on the watercraft by a female companion, who was also injured in the accident.

Amy Winehouse cancels two tour dates after disastrous performance in Belgrade

Amy Winehouse has canceled two tour dates in the wake of an ill-fated concert in Belgrade, according to CNN. During the performance, the singer staggered through several of her songs until loud boos from the audience finally forced her from the stage. (Video taken at the performance shows a disoriented Winehouse mumbling occasional lyrics and walking aimlessly around the stage.) Following the performance, the singer canceled planned concerts in Istanbul and Athens. Winehouse recently left a British rehab facility; this twelve-city tour, her first in years, was intended as a comeback for the troubled singer.

Two nabbed in Joss Stone murder plot

Two men were arrested Tuesday for suspicion of conspiracy to rob and murder singer Joss Stone in England, the BBC has reported, after they were discovered near her home in Devon with swords, a map of the singer’s home, and a body bag.

“Police attended an address in Cullompton after alert residents notified officers about a suspicious-looking vehicle,” said the Devon and Cornwall police. “Officers attended the area at around 10 a.m. and subsequently arrested the occupants of a red Fiat Punto. Major crime detectives are continuing to investigate.” It remains unclear whether Stone was home at the time of the arrest of the two men, who remain unidentified but are aged 33 and 30.

“Joss is aware of the arrests and police are keeping her updated with developments,” a spokesperson for Stone said in a statement.

The Coasters' Carl Gardner dies

Carl Gardner, the lead singer of the Coasters, died Sunday after a long battle with congestive heart failure and vascular dementia in Florida, according to the Associated Press. He was 83. The Coasters had a string of hits in the late 1950s, including “Searchin’,” “Poison Ivy,” “Young Blood, ” and “Yakety Yak,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart in 1958. A founding member of the Coasters in 1955, Garner retained the rights to the band’s name. While the band’s makeup changed over the years, he remained the group’s lead singer until 2005, when his son, Carl Jr., took his place.

Willie Nelson fined $500 for marijuana possession

Country singer-songwriter Willie Nelson pleaded no contest Wednesday in West Texas to a misdemeanor charge of drug paraphernalia, and will pay a $500 fine, plus $280 more in court costs, according to a Reuters report. Nelson was charged last November after six ounces of marijuana were reportedly found in his tour bus at a routine checkpoint, although court officials now say less than two ounces were discovered — the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor. County attorney C.R. Bramblett said the case would be dismissed in 30 days if Nelson remains out of trouble.
