Halle Berry was confronted by stalker over the weekend. The unidentified male reportedly broke into the actress’ West Hollywood home twice. On Saturday he was stopped by one of Berry’s employees. The man said he was “there to see somebody,” but left after the employee ordered him off the property. On Sunday, the second occasion, the stalker came face-to-face with the 44-year-old actress. Berry was in her kitchen when she looked out her window to find a man holding a book staring back at her. A shaken Berry immediately dialed 911. According to TMZ, “Law enforcement believes the suspect is an obsessed fan, possibly hell-bent on getting Halle's autograph ... but they haven't ruled out a renegade paparazzo.” Stay safe, Halle!
Jonas Brother Booed by Hipsters
Joe Jonas’ attempt at a solo career hasn’t started well. The middle Jonas brother received a rough reception during a solo performance at a launch party in Williamsburg, the hipster capital of the world. Jonas opened for band Swizz Beatz at a party for Paper magazine and sang five songs from his upcoming solo album Fast Life. As he took to the stage he was jeered and booed. During the performance he was belted with green Nerf-style mini-basketballs that had been handed out by one of the show’s sponsors. Joe Jonas was not perturbed by the hostile reception and finished his set like a pro. He even stuck around at the venue to see Swizz Beatz perform. Way to show those hipsters, Joe.

On Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter made history by becoming the first Yankee to reach 3,000 hits. After ripping a single into the left field of his home stadium off of a 95 mph zinger, Jeter seemed to instantly shake off all of the pressure that has been following him most of the season. “I'd been lying for quite some time about the pressure,” Jeter told ESPN. “After Friday, I was like, ‘Damn, now I've only got two games (left on the homestand).’” But in epic Jeter fashion, things went down in a movie-like scenario. “If I'd written this script and handed it to someone,” Jeter went on, “I still wouldn't have bought it.” Not only does this guy get to date Minka Kelly, he also continues to make baseball history in the twilight of his career. What a guy.
Folk Singer Facundo Cabral Gunned Down in Guatemala
Facundo Cabral, one of Latin America's most loved folk singers, was tragically gunned down over the weekend in hail of gunfire. He was 74. According to reports, on his way to Guatemala's airport with his concert promoter Henry Farinas driving, three cars filled with gunmen attacked the vehicle in which Cabral was riding. Farinas was seriously wounded in the ambush. After the horrible event, authorities claimed that the attackers were in fact trying to harm Farinas and not Cabral. Even though officials have stated that they’re not aware of a legit motive for the killing, Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom stated that the operation was orchestrated by "people involved in organized crime.” “They are not street killers. It's a well-planned operation," Colom continued. For those of you that haven’t heard of Cabral, he’s basically the Bob Dylan of Latin America. RIP Facundo Cabral.
