Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones is all grown up. Lexi turned 17 this week and s and proud mom, Iman, posted a very rare picture of the teenager on Instagram on Thursday to wish her a happy birthday.

“The Queen of my heart Lexi Jones at 17 years old!” she captioned the picture of Lexi, who is sporting a white halter top and gold nose ring as her red curly hair frames her face.

Iman and Bowie met in 1990 and were married in Tuscany two years later. In 2000, they welcomed Lexi into the world. Sadly, the singer died at the age of 69 in 2016 after a battle with cancer.

A snake's tail? A solar eclipse. Taylor Swift teases fans

Three days after going dark on social media, the pop star put out more clues leading to a possible single drop Monday, the day of the big solar eclipse. And if the lyric-sharing site Genius is to be believed, the tune is titled "Timeless."

As for the video clip that appears to be a twitchy snake's tail, well, not sure how that might play into Swift's anticipated sixth studio album that all of her social media shenanigans seem to be leading up to, possibly in October to coincide the anniversary of the release of "1989."

Swift wiped her Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and her website on Friday, the third anniversary of the release of her "Shake It Off" single.

Norman Rockwell baseball painting sells for $1.6M at auction

A rendering by Norman Rockwell of one of his best known baseball-themed paintings has sold at auction for $1.6 million.

The work was a study, or a preliminary work, for Rockwell's "Tough Call."

The painting depicts three umpires looking skyward pondering whether to call a game because of rain. It's arguably the most recognizable of his baseball-themed works.

Heritage Auctions says the painting sold Sunday in Dallas to a buyer who wants to remain anonymous.

The Austin family who put the work up for auction thought they just had a print of the work before they had it examined.

The final painting is in the possession of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

Cosby hires Michael Jackson's lawyer for sex assault retrial

Bill Cosby has hired Michael Jackson's former lawyer to represent him at his November retrial on sexual assault charges in Pennsylvania.

Cosby's spokesman announced Monday that the 80-year-old comedian is bringing in Tom Mesereau to lead a retooled defense team. Lawyers from the first trial in June had said they wanted off the case.

Mesereau won an acquittal in Jackson's 2004 child molestation trial. He has also represented boxer Mike Tyson, rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight and a Playboy bunny.

Mesereau will be joined by former federal prosecutor Kathleen Bliss, as well as Sam Silver, who represented now-imprisoned former U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah of Pennsylvania in a corruption case.

Cosby's first trial on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 ended in a hung jury.

Dudamel tour of US cancelled amid feud with Venezuela govt

A four-city U.S. tour by classical music maestro Gustavo Dudamel is being cancelled following President Nicolas Maduro's complaints about the Venezuela-born conductor's criticism of the government's crackdown on protests.

Dudamel's tour with the government-backed Venezuelan National Youth Orchestra was set to begin Sept. 9 near Washington before continuing to Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Dudamel on Twitter Monday called the cancellation "heartbreaking" and said he would continue "to fight for a better Venezuela."

Dudamel gave no reason for the cancellation, but Maduro last week blasted the Los Angeles Philharmonic's musical director, accusing him of being duped by Venezuela's enemies into criticizing the government that has for years been one of his biggest promoters.

Dudamel is scheduled to tour China with another government orchestra in October.

Rockabilly pioneer Sonny Burgess dies in Arkansas at 88

Albert "Sonny" Burgess, who was an early pioneer of what became known as rockabilly music, has died in his native Arkansas.

The Dillinger Funeral Home in Newport says Burgess died Friday in Little Rock. He was 88.

Burgess was among a group of singers in the mid-1950s who mixed rhythm and blues with country and western music. The sound became known as rockabilly and included Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Burgess eventually signed with Sun Records in Memphis, where Presley, Cash and Lewis were among the artists under contract.

Burgess also is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

Funeral arrangements are pending. His cause of death was not released.

Solar eclipse 2017: What's on your Great American Eclipse playlist?

On Monday, millions of people will watch the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in nearly a century.

So we thought it might be fun to make an eclipse-related playlist of songs that use the words moon, eclipse or sun in the title.

Or, perhaps, in the spirit of this “once-in-a-lifetime" event, how about songs that mention the sky or stars? 

There are some obvious ones, such as "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles, "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler or "Moon River" from the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's.”

That song was performed in the movie by Audrey Hepburn and later covered by Andy Williams and Frank Sinatra.

The thoughts of one Atlanta pastor also turned to eclipse-related music.

The Rev. Patricia Templeton, rector of St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church of Atlanta, decided to make a list of eclipse- or celestial-related hymns for the music worship on Sunday. 

She included hymns such as “The Spacious Firmament on High” and “God Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens.”
