BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Items from Michael Jackson’s stage wardrobe, including one of the King of Pop’s famous gloves, attracted furious bidding at an auction of celebrity memorabilia in Beverly Hills.

Julien’s Auctions said the two-day event brought in more than $3 million.

Bristol Palin denies being forced to go on dance program

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Bristol Palin says her mother didn’t force her to go on “Dancing with the Stars.”

The 20-year-old daughter of 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin used a Facebook post to react to a blog entry by a fellow contestant, comedian Margaret Cho. Cho wrote that the former Alaska governor blamed her daughter for the 2008 loss and told her she “owed” it to her to go on “Dancing with the Stars” to win back America’s love.

Bristol Palin — who was an unmarried teenager when she had her son, Tripp — said it saddens her that anyone would think her mother blamed her for anything that occurred in the election.

Bristol Palin finished third in the dance competition.

Navratilova to serve from African mountain

NAIROBI, Kenya – Martina Navratilova plans to hit tennis balls off the top of Africa’s highest peak.

The tennis legend is climbing Tanzania’s 19,340-foot mountain next week to raise money and awareness for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.

Navratilova, 54, lives in Aspen, Colo., so she is somewhat used to altitude.

The fundraising goal for the climb is $134,000. More than half of that already has been raised.

Navratilova said she will carry a tennis racket to the top but doesn’t know if she can find a game up there.

“I’m bringing one racket and I’ll hit a few balls from the top to see how far they can travel,” she said. “With the air being that thin, they should go a long way.”

Hackers allegedly stole songs

BERLIN – Two young German computer hackers allegedly stole pop songs from Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha and Kelly Clarkson, selling them online and forcing the advanced release of several singles, officials said Friday.

An 18-year-old high school student from Duisburg, and his alleged accomplice, a 23-year-old unemployed man from Wesel, are under investigation for using a Trojan Horse to hack into the artists’ computers for about 12 months before being discovered.

Both men live with their parents in the western German cities, about 20 miles apart.
