LOS ANGELES - Coroner's officials said yesterday that they wouldn't release any information about an autopsy on singer Whitney Houston. The singer, 48, was found in the bathtub of her room Saturday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, but Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter declined to say anything about the room's condition or any evidence investigators recovered. He said that there were no obvious signs of trauma, but that officials were not ruling out any cause of death until they have toxicology results, which will take weeks to obtain.

As the 12-steppers say, the program works if you work it. But it seems Whitney Houston ain't working it all that good. In fact, according to the New York Daily News, Her Divaness has left the safe confines of the rehab she checked into on March 15. "Whitney got extremely upset and said she felt the walls were closing in on her," a source tells the News. Houston's rep, Nancy Seltzer, is taking the Middle Path, known in the Buddhism-meets-postmodern-public-relations milieu as a non-denial denial.

"MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - Rogue Nation," the fifth installment in the nearly 20-year-old film series, based on the nearly 50-year-old TV show, earned $56 million in its opening weekend to top the box office, according to studio estimates yesterday. Opening weekend audiences were 62 percent male and 81 percent over the age of 25. It's the second-highest opening for a "Mission" film since "Mission Impossible II" took in $57.8 million over Memorial Day weekend in 2000.

"All I need is good music, good choreo, and a good time," Ariana Grande told a nearly sold-out crowd via a video projection at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night during her Honeymoon Tour. The shrieking audience of mostly tween girls watched this prerecorded short on their smartphones, many taking selfies with the stage. A few moments later, when the real-life Grande sprung out of a trapdoor in the stage, the shrill squeals escalated, and the digital documentation continued. As fireworks shot up to the roof in sync with the chorus of "Bang Bang," Grande's rousing collaboration with Nicky Minaj and Jessie J, most in the crowd chose to view the spectacle on smartphones instead of immersing themselves in the live concert experience.

Lifetime's original movies aren't exactly known for their narrative complexity or emotional subtlety. The cabler has a formula, making low-budget TV pics about women who suffer and/or overcome some sensational event or illness.
