David Bowie is celebrating his birthday by releasing new music.

He announced Tuesday, his 66th birthday, that he's released his first song in 10 years titled "Where Are We Now?"

A new album, "The Next Day," will be out in March.

Laurence Fishburne has been granted a temporary restraining order against an ex-con, who claims to own the actor's home.

The order requires Anthony Francis, whose real name is Mark Francisco, to stay 100 yards away from the Oscar-nominated star, his wife and daughter.

Francisco had told Fishburne's family to vacate their property as they were living there illegally.

Seth MacFarlane will be starting his Oscar hosting duties early.

He will join Emma Stone on Thursday to reveal the shortlist for the 85th annual Academy Awards.

It's the first time since 1972 that an Oscar host has also participated in the nominations announcement.

This is Hilary Fox with AP ShowBiz Minute.
