Paul Simon 'n' Edie off the hook

Phew, what a relief! Folk and pop legend Paul Simon won't be going to the Big House anytime soon!

Prosecutors in Connecticut on Tuesday said Simon, 72, and wife Edie Brickell, 48, will not be charged or tried following their arrest in April for disorderly conduct.

The couple, who wed in '92, were nabbed after getting into a shoving match during a domestic argument at their manse in New Canaan, Conn.

They weren't in court Tuesday, but the duo did appear at a hearing last month, telling Judge William Wenzel that their fight was atypical of their relationship.

The case may be revisited if the couple are arrested in the next 13 months.

Match made in PR heaven

Here's one for folks cynical enough to believe Kimye's couplehood is little more than a publicity stunt. Kanye West on Tuesday told reporters at the Cannes Ad Fest that he and bride Kim Kardashian spent four days during their honeymoon to retouch their now-famous wedding photo. Seriously, they took time out from their good lovin' to perfect (alter?) publicity shots?

"We worked on our wedding photo for four days until it was good enough for Instagram," Kanye said. Kim, he added, "was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much."

She's too hot for geography

Miss USA Nia Sanchez, who has denied reports she faked her Nevada residency to enter the beauty pageant, was befuddled Tuesday when asked on New York radio station 5.5 WPLJ to name the capital of her supposed home state.

Sherlock belongs to you now

The world's greatest detective now belongs to Mr.and Mrs.John & Jane Q.Public: A court decided that you own the rights to 43 Sherlock Holmes stories published before 1923. It means folks who want to reprint any of those specific stories won't have to pay licensing fees to Arthur Conan Doyle's estate.
