TWEET GIVES AWAY DAVID CASSIDY'S LOCATION TO COURT

SCHODACK, N.Y. (AP) -- It was off to races for David Cassidy but that created a legal issue for him. A horse racing group delayed his court case by revealing his location. Cassidy was charged last summer with driving while intoxicated in Schodack (SKOH'-dak), New York. He lives in Florida but prosecutors agreed only his lawyer had to appear in court Wednesday. However, the New York Racing Associated tweeted that Cassidy was at Saratoga Race Course 40 miles away. A prosecutor tells The Daily Gazette of Schenectady officials are "disturbed" that Cassidy was near but did not appear in court. His lawyer says Cassidy may not have known the timing of his court date. A new court date is being scheduled.

DEF LEPPARD'S VIVIAN CAMPBELL SAYS HIS CANCER IS IN REMISSION AGAIN

BOSTON (AP) -- Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell is cautiously optimistic about his latest cancer diagnosis. He writes on his Facebook page he had a scan Tuesday in Boston that determined his Hodgkin's lymphoma is in remission. He says he's trying not to get too excited about that because he heard that phrase last year and the cancer returned. Campbell says he will have a stem cell transplant after the Def Leppard tour. In the meantime, he's having another round of chemotherapy. In his words, "I'm back in (the) hospital, all hooked up and doing my rock n' roll drugs. Keef would be most proud!"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ne-Yo is suing his former manager and confidant for $8 million.

Ne-Yo is asking for $4.5 million plus a refund on the $3.5 million he paid Foster. Foster could not be reached for comment.

ZZ WARD'S WARDROBE IDEAS INFLUENCED BY JOHN LEE HOOKER

CHICAGO (AP) -- ZZ Ward considers John Lee Hooker a role model for her, and not just because she's a fan of the blues. Ward says she knows someone who interviewed Hooker and asked him why he was all dressed up when it was just a chat at his house. Hooker said it was out of respect for his visitor. Ward says that story stuck with her and she wants to show the same respect to her audience. She says they're looking forward to that moment, so she'll give them something to remember.

ARIANA GRANDE WAS HESITANT ABOUT "PROBLEM"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ariana Grande (GRAHN'-day) had her doubts about the song "Problem" when she recorded it. Or, to use her words, she was "kind of scared" of it. Grande says it intimidated her because it felt different and risky with the whispers. She didn't even listen to it for a couple of months. She says she heard it again when it was finished and thought, "Hmm, maybe I am completely wrong." She was. The song peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
