NEW YORK (AP) – If you ever need someone to keep a secret, try Janet Jackson. At least she knows how to keep her personal life under wraps. The singer’s people are confirming she has been married since last year. She is hitched to Wissam Al Mana – and in a statement to Entertainment Tonight, the newlyweds ask for privacy. It isn’t the first time Janet Jackson has had a secret marriage. She married Rene Elizondo Junior in 1991 – and didn’t let on that she was hitched until they announced their separation leading to a divorce in 1999. Jackson was also married to singer James DeBarge in 1984 – when she was 18. That marriage lasted three months.

In 1963, Vee Jay Records released the first Beatles record in the U.S., “Please Please Me” backed with “Ask Me Why.” At the time, the single went unnoticed by the record-buying public.

In 1973, the Stephen Sondheim musical “A Little Night Music” opened on Broadway.

In 1981, singer Christopher Cross was the big winner at the Grammy Awards, picking up an award for best album for his self-titled debut album. His hit “Sailing” was named best song and best record.

In 1983, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tennessee Williams was found dead in his New York hotel suite. He was 71.

In 1992, Natalie Cole won seven Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for “Unforgettable.” Bonnie Raitt and R.E.M. each won three.

In 1993, Marshall Tucker Band founder Toy Caldwell was found dead at his home in South Carolina. He was 45. A coroner later ruled that Caldwell’s death was cocaine-related.

Also in 1993, actor Dick Van Dyke got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At the star’s unveiling, Van Dyke was shocked to see that his last name had been engraved as one word instead of two.

In 1995, singer Lyle Lovett broke his collarbone in a motorcycle accident while practicing for a segment for “Moto World” on ESPN.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Adele’s “Skyfall” has won the Academy Award for best original song. That’s a first for a James Bond theme. Three previous 007 tunes were nominated: “For Your Eyes Only,” “Nobody Does It Better,” and “Live and Let Die.” Adele also performed “Skyfall” for the first time at the ceremony. The cast of “Les Miserables” reunited to perform on the show. During the In Memoriam tribute, in a year that saw the passing of composer-songwriter Marvin Hamlisch, Barbra Streisand made a rare television appearance to sing “The Way We Were” in his honor.



LOS ANGELES (AP) – Seth MacFarlane didn’t go soft during his first turn as Oscars host, with jokes about domestic violence, breast-baring actresses and the Lincoln assassination. In spite of his good looks and suave manner, he was a nontraditional choice for the job, as the maker of the TV show “Family Guy” and the movie “Ted.” During a long opening monologue, MAcfarlane brought on William Shatner, playing a time-traveling Captain Kirk trying to save MacFarlane from himself. MacFarlane expected groans. He had predicted for weeks that he’d be savaged by the critics.




LOS ANGELES (AP) – A film about a fake movie, has earned best picture at the Academy Awards. Ben Affleck’s Iran-hostage drama “Argo” won three trophies in all. First lady Michelle Obama helped present the final prize from the White House. Affleck failed to get a nomination for best director. But said he was in good company with other directors who were also left out. Oscar voters spread the honors among a range of films. “Life of Pi” led with four, including best director, Ang Lee.

Daniel Day-Lewis has made Oscar history by becoming the first to win three best actor Oscars. As expected, he won for his portrayal of “Lincoln,” adding to the honors he earned for “My Left Foot” and “There Will Be Blood.” Asked what kind of role he wanted to play next, he said backstage, “It’s hard to imagine doing anything after this.” The best actress winner was also no surprise — Jennifer Lawrence at 22, is the second-youngest woman to win best actress. Her Dion gown gave her an “oops” moment — tripping her as she made her way up the steps to the stage. As the crowd gave her a standing ovation, Lawrence joked, “You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell.”

Christoph Waltz knows who to thank for his Oscars. His second best supporting actor Oscar came for his role in another Quentin Tarantino movie, “Django Unchained.” Waltz also offered gracious thanks to his supporting-actor competition, all of whom are previous Oscar winners. Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones had gotten much of the buzz in the category. “It came true,” were Anne Hathaway’s first words in accepting her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Les Miserables.” She got emotional backstage, in explaining that she had a dream that she would win.
