Lynyrd Skynyrd film can

be released, court says 

A new Lynyrd Skynyrd film can be released despite a dispute over the band's intentions after a federal appeals court ruled in its favor Wednesday.

The decision by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan came in a case involving a movie called "Street Survivors: The True Story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash."

A lower court judge decided previously the film violated a "blood oath" made by band members not to exploit the group's name after a 1977 plane crash that killed its lead singer and songwriter, Ronnie Van Zant. The 2nd Circuit reversed that decision, saying the movie can be distributed.

 

Despite vow, Elvis Costello

is back with new music 

Besides the fact that he's still here, Elvis Costello's fans can be grateful that he's open to changing his mind.

While something short of a vow, Costello said in 2010 that he didn't plan to record anymore. Yet on Friday, he releases "Look Now," his second disc since that declaration. The lush showcase for his backing band, the Imposters, is musically inspired by Dusty Springfield's "Dusty in Memphis" and has a renewed collaboration with Burt Bacharach at its heart.

That Costello, 64, is around to talk about it is because he was treated for what was described as a small, but aggressive form of cancer earlier this year.

need to show evidence  
 

First lady Melania Trump says women who make accusations of sexual abuse "need to be heard" and supported, but so do men.

She says when there are accusations there needs to be "really hard evidence" and accusers should "show the evidence."

She was interviewed on her Kenya trip by ABC, which aired portions Wednesday on "Good Morning America."
