SAN FRANCISCO – Much like the caller in the Lady Gaga hit song “Telephone,” some visitors to Amazon’s site received a busy signal Monday when they tried to download the digital version of the artist’s latest album, “Born This Way,” which the online retailer was selling for 99 cents on its release date.

Spokeswoman Sally Fouts said Amazon experienced a high volume of traffic that caused delays for those downloading the album — echoing a posting on the album’s product page on Amazon.com.

Customers who ordered the MP3 version of “Born This Way” on Monday will get it for 99 cents, she said.

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is known for her pop music and outre fashion sense.

Lohan’s father pleads not guilty to battery

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Lindsay Lohan’s father has pleaded not guilty to attacking his ex-girlfriend during an argument earlier this year in California.

Michael Lohan entered the plea to misdemeanor domestic violence battery Monday in Beverly Hills.

He was arrested in March after his ex-girlfriend, Kate Major, accused him of abusing her and preventing her from calling 911.

Michael Lohan’s attorney said his client is looking forward to resolving the case and sorting out the conflicting stories of the events that led up to his arrest. A trial is scheduled for July 5.

Harper Lee memoir will be out in 2013

NEW YORK – Harper Lee’s sister says the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird” has indeed cooperated with a memoir about her. And the publisher has set a release date: fall 2013.

The law firm Barnett, Bugg, Lee & Carter had released a signed statement last month from Harper Lee disputing an announcement by Penguin Press that Marja Mills’ “The Mockingbird Next Door” had been written with “full access” to the media-shy novelist.

But Alice Lee, Harper Lee’s sister, is a partner in the firm and said in a signed letter dated May 21 and released Monday by Penguin that the statement was prepared without her knowledge and “does not represent” the feelings of either sister.

A woman who answered the phone at Barnett, Bugg declined comment and hung up on a reporter.
