GLEN CAMPBELL DOCUMENTARY HITS THEATERS TOMORROW

NASHVILLE (AP) -- Glen Campbell's wife says he's at stage six of the seven stages of Alzheimer's disease. Kim Campbell says he's lost most of his language skills and he rarely understands anything that's said to him. However, she says Campbell still communicates with hugs and smiles, and he's healthy and is "a delight to be around." A documentary about him called "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me" opens in theaters tomorrow. Director James Keach says the opening scene shows Campbell watching the film and not recognizing himself. Keach says once Campbell was told it's him, he loved listening to his own music.

TAYLOR SWIFT HITS NUMBER ONE WITH STATIC

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Here's proof that Taylor Swift fans are crazy about anything -- ANYTHING -- that has to do with her new album, "1989." She hit number one on iTunes in Canada with eight seconds of static. The Hollywood Reporter reports a glitch put a song called "Track 3" available for sale, but nothing was there but static. "Track 3" outsold the singles from "1989" that Swift has already released. The song has since been taken down. The "1989" album comes out next week.

MICK JAGGER RECALLS MEETING JAMES BROWN

NEW YORK (AP) -- The first time Mick Jagger came to New York in the 1960s, he went to New York's Apollo Theater to see James Brown. He introduced himself and he says Brown couldn't figure out why a young English man cared about him. Fast-forward to 1976, when Jagger again saw Brown perform at the Apollo. This time, Brown brought Jagger on stage with him. Jagger says he was so embarrassed because he hadn't planned on that but knew he couldn't say no. Jagger has produced a documentary on Brown called "Mr. Dynamite" that premieres on HBO on Monday.

CHINESE AUTHORITIES WARN KENNY G

HONG KONG (AP) -- Kenny G's tweet about his visit to Hong Kong has gotten the attention of Chinese authorities. Kenny G visited the student-led protests, which have occupied the streets for more than three weeks as they push for more democratic reforms in China. He tweeted, "In Hong Kong at the sight of the demonstration. I wish everyone a peaceful and positive conclusion to this situation." A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman notes Kenny G's music is popular in China and adds, "We hope all foreign countries and individuals could be discreet in words and deeds and not support the illegal protest in any forms."

ANNIE LENNOX RELEASES "NOSTALGIA"

LONDON (AP) -- Most singers who do an album of standards grew up listening to the songs they cover. Annie Lennox didn't. Lennox has released an album of jazz standards called "Nostalgia." She grew up listening to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Motown rather than jazz. Lennox came up with the idea for "Nostalgia" two years ago when rehearsing with Herbie Hancock and his band in Washington before an AIDS benefit. She was just singing for fun and realized it would be an interesting place for her voice to explore. Might this be Lennox's last album? Maybe, maybe not. She says she feels every album is her last one and she rarely has long-term plans.

GEORGE HARRISON'S LIVERPOOL HOME SOLD

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- George Harrison's boyhood home has sold at auction for $250,000. The Liverpool Echo reports Beatles fan Jackie Holmes had the winning bid for the modest three-bedroom home where The Beatles used to rehearse. Harrison's family moved there when he was 6 and stayed until the early 1960s. Holmes says she paid double what a house is worth in that area, but she's thrilled because she missed out on buying John Lennon's house last year. Holmes says she may move into the house and she plans to restore one of the rooms back to the way it was in the 1960s.
