Singer Loretta Lynn hospitalized with pneumonia

ASHLAND, Ky. – Country music singer Loretta Lynn was hospitalized over the weekend with the early stages of pneumonia, according to a representative of the performer.
The 76-year-old Lynn was scheduled to perform Saturday at the Performing Arts Center in Ashland, Ky. and Sunday in Durham, N.C., but the Kentucky center issued a news release saying she is in the hospital and would be unable to perform. The Kentucky theater says the show will be rescheduled.
Loretta Lynn Enterprises posted a statement on her website Saturday night that confirmed the cancellations due to illness.
“Doctors have diagnosed her as the beginning stages pneumonia, and will continue to need rest. Loretta is doing well and is disappointed but feels confident she will be ready for upcoming November dates.”
Calls by The Associated Press to representatives of Lynn were not immediately returned Saturday.
In August, Lynn canceled shows because of knee surgery. Before that, she returned to live performances with a show at the Grand Ole Opry after being forced to cancel shows in Ohio and Connecticut because she was hospitalized for heat exhaustion.
The daughter of a Kentucky coal miner, Lynn had a string of hits starting in the 1960s – “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “The Pill,” and “One’s on the Way.” Many of her songs reflected her pride in her humble background and her experiences as a wife and mother. Her 1977 autobiography was made into a movie that brought an Oscar for Sissy Spacek’s portrayal of Lynn. More recently, Lynn marked 50 years in country music and won two Grammy awards in 2005 for her album “Van Lear Rose.”

Harold Camping Prediction: World Survives Doomsday (Again)

The world refused to end yet again on Friday, despite another prediction from Family Radio network owner Harold Camping that it would.

Earlier this year, Camping claimed Judgement Day was coming May 21. Then, when it did not, he said the actual day of reckoning would be October 21.

That day too passed without incident and now the Daily Mail is having a tough time getting Camping or anyone else from Family Radio to explain why the Earth is still turning. The paper's calls to the company were not returned.

The AP also ran into a roadblock while searching for answers.

"I'm sorry to disappoint you, but we at Family Radio have been directed to not talk to the media or the press," Camping's daughter Susan Espinoza wrote to the AP on Friday.

Reuters caught up with camping recently, before the big non-event, and the preacher declined to comment.

"We're not having a conversation," he told Reuters. "There's nothing to report here."

In May, thousands of billboards across the country proclaimed the world would end on May 21. One man from New York City said he spent his life savings on advertisements notifying his fellow citizens that the apocalypse was near.

This time, there was no such fanfare, perhaps showing that people have grown weary of trusting a man who is now 0 for 3 when it comes to anticipating Armageddon.

David Beckham Shows 'Love' For New Tattoo

David Beckham needs another tattoo like he needs another adoring female "soccer fan" -- but that didn't stop the football stud from getting some new ink. Beckham's wife, Victoria, tweeted a photo of her handsome husband's newest body art, the word "Love" written in large cursive across his hand.
But what's the cutest part? The couple's newest family addition, baby Harper Seven, but her two sense -- or rather her tiny hand -- in on daddy's new ink.
What do you think of Beckham's new tattoo? Cool, cute or cheesy?
