PLAQUE MARKS BOWIE'S FORMER BERLIN HOME
A plaque honouring the late English singer David Bowie was unveiled on Monday at his Berlin home.
The music icon, who died in January, lived in the German city for a few years in the 1970s while he worked on the albums Low, Heroes and Lodger.
Fans gathered at the building, laying flowers and candles outside, before Berlin mayor Michael Mueller unveiled the plaque reading, "David Bowie (1947-2016) lived in this house 1976-1978". The plaque also quotes a famous line from his song Heroes ("We can be heroes, just for one day").
Mueller told the crowd: "One can say David Bowie and West Berlin had quite a special partnership."
BARTON TOLD TO PAY $270,000 FOR DITCHING ROLE
British-US actress Mischa Barton has reportedly been ordered to pay US$200,000 (S$270,00) after she bailed on a movie to go on holiday.
The 30-year-old will have to fork out this amount to writer-producer Daniel Lief after he sued her for dropping out of the film Promoted.
Lief saw pictures of her on social media travelling around Europe and claimed the delay in production and the need to recast the lead role cost him more than US$300,000.
According to the original filing, he claimed Barton's actions during scheduled filming dates in March 2014 were a "cavalier" breach of contract and that she was "unjustly enriched due to (her) unlawful behaviour".
