Family and friends of Mindy McCready gathered on Tuesday to lay the country music star to rest in her Florida hometown.

McCready's music played in the background and her image was shown on a large screen behind the altar.

McCready committed suicide earlier this month.

Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in jail, and four years probation for a drunken driving case.

The singer pleaded no contest to charges that he was under the influence and driving on a suspended license when he was arrested in October.

Brown was ordered to report to jail March 20th and will be required to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program.

Lindsay Lohan's attorney has suggested that the actress serve as a motivational speaker.

He proposes that Lohan records public service announcements and gives inspirational speeches at schools and hospitals, to show she's improving her life.

The star faces three misdemeanor charges for reckless driving and lying to police.

This is Hilary Fox with AP ShowBiz Minute.
