(CNN) - Comedian Russell Brand is the latest victim of a prank called "swatting." Los Angeles Police responded to his home Monday afternoon after a 9-1-1 call about a man with a gun. Turns out the report was false. There have been several such "swatting" incidents targeting celebrity homes in Los Angeles in the past year. The name stems from the hoax's intended result-- a large scale response from police and SWAT. Other victims include Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber.


(CNN) - The entertainment world is paying its respects to Annette Funicello. She passed away Monday at the age of 70. Frankie Avalon says we've lost one of America's Sweethearts for generations upon generations. Larry King interviewed Funicello multiple times. He says she had natural star quality. Funicello battled multiple sclerosis for more than 25 years.


(CNN) - Legendary Film Critic Roger Ebert has been laid to rest. Hundreds gathered inside a Chicago cathedral for his funeral Monday. He was eulogized by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said Ebert defined his profession. His widow Chaz called him a soldier for social justice. Ebert died Thursday after a long battle with cancer.
