Kristen Stewart Thinks She'll Be Assassinated

Twilight star Kristen Stewart is deathly afraid of her fans because she thinks one of them might end up killing her. The famously reserved actress says she struggles at times with all the attention and has been known to burst into fits of crying. The 20-year-old told the UK's Hello magazine, "I don't feel very comfortable on the red carpet. I look out there at a thousand people and I realize they could rush me and assassinate me. No security could protect me. Ostensibly they're fans, but I think about them turning on me." Kristen goes on to say that she lives a very "normal" life and that her life only gets crazy (and possibly endangered) at the Twilight film premieres. Well Kristen, you only have two more of these films to make. []

Michael Jackson's Son May Have Similar Skin Disease

Recent photographs of Michael Jackson's eldest child show that he may be suffering from the same skin disease his famous father battled. Prince Michael was photographed playing on the beach with what looks like white skin patches near his underarms. Experts say that this could mean he's suffering from the rare skin disease vitiligo. Vitiligo is a heredity disorder that causes "depigmentation in patches of skin." It is the most likely reason why Michael Jackson's skin tone lightened throughout his life. If Prince Michael is indeed suffering from vitiligo it would make the case even stronger that he truly is Michael Jackson's biological son. [Daily Mail]

Phil Jackson Will Not Go Quietly into the Night

What's nearly seven feet tall, filled with wisdom, and nailing the boss' daughter? It's Phil Jackson, and he's back for another season with the Los Angeles Lakers. The elderly bench boss announced that he will return for one final season in LA in order to help ensure that wherever LeBron James signs, he will do so knowing that a title will be that much harder to procure. In's opinion, Jackson is the most valuable free agent signing of the off-season. [ESPN]
