THE GAME - ON MICHAEL BROWN
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Game says he could hardly believe it when he heard that Michael Brown had been shot to death by a policeman in Ferguson, Missouri -- even though he was unarmed. The rapper says the news "was like really devastating" and that the story was "one of those wow factors, where it's like 'not again"' But the recording artist decided to channel his anger into music, releasing a tribute to the 18-year-old. The Game says the single "Don't Shoot" is designed to help people appreciate there are plenty of Michael Browns out there. He says "Mike Brown is African American. I am African American." But he says the difference is that he has a voice. So The Game says he wants to do his part -- in part so he can sleep at night knowing he did the best he could to use that voice to help others.
The Game describes how he felt when he heard about Michael Brown's death.

SAMMY HAGAR SUIT
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A federal appeals court says an Iowa woman who claims rock singer Sammy Hagar fathered her baby 25 years ago may sue him for libel -- as well as invasion of privacy, and breach of contract. The appeals court says the woman can sue the former Van Halen frontman for allegations he put down in his 2011 memoir. The lawsuit had been dismissed last year by a federal judge, but the appeals court says the woman has established facts a jury should decide. The woman -- a former Playboy bunny -- claims she had Hagar's baby. The woman claims the child died shortly after she gave birth in 1989. Hagar denies he was the father, doubts she had a baby -- and says she's guilty of extortion.
NO DRONES FOR STARS?
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- When Miley Cyrus posted a video of a drone hovering over her home, there were more than a few people who said there ought to be a law. And now there should be. A bill headed to Governor Jerry Brown would crack down on paparazzi deploying drones as they chase celebrities. The assembly passed the measure unanimously. The legislation would make drone operators liable for invasion of privacy when they photograph and record celebrities in their backyards and homes. A similar bill introduced last year failed.
