Celebrity News: Legendary TV Host Dick Clark Dies at 82

Los Angeles – Dick Clark, the versatile television personality who built his beginnings as host of the long-running “American Bandstand” into a virtual media empire, has died of a heart attack this morning. He was 82 years old. His youthful looks and association with Bandstand got him the nickname, “America’s Oldest Teenager.”

Born Richard Wagstaff Clark in Mount Vernon, New York, he began his broadcasting career right after high school at Wrun-am in Rome, New York, which was owned by his uncle. He began by announcing weather reports and station breaks, and also worked at a country station while attending Syracuse University. After graduation, he did some bit TV and radio jobs in New York, before moving to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for a on-air opportunity.

Good Morning America cancels Adam Lambert concert

Good Morning America cancels Adam Lambert concert
Adam Lambert has been on a lot of shows with "America" in the title, including American Idol and The American Music Awards. He won't be appearing on another show with that word in it though.

ABC has confirmed that Lambert's appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday has been canceled. And yes, we can all assume that it's because of Lambert's ridiculous performance on the AMAs over the weekend, where he made out with a guy, dragged another guy along on a leash, and also simulated oral sex with a dancer who was down on this knees. You know, because Lambert wanted to be so Edgy. (Update: Lambert will appear on CBS' The Early Show instead, and Dick Clark Productions has released a statement about the performance.)
