COMPTON, Calif. (AP) -- There are a lot of conflicting accounts about what happened yesterday when Suge (SHUG) Knight was behind the wheel of a vehicle that hit two men, killing one of them. It happened in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton, California -- and authorities are investigating the case as a homicide. A sheriff's department lieutenant says accounts from witnesses say it appeared Knight's vehicle deliberately hit the men. But Knight's lawyer says his client was being attacked physically -- and the men who were hit were struck as he was trying to flee. The lawyer says he's sure Knight will be cleared once the investigation is complete.
AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports Suge Knight has had a number of run-ins with the law.

PHOENIX (AP) -- Katy Perry may say she's no football fan -- but she sure keeps tabs on the NFL. That was clear when she went before reporters yesterday to talk up her Super Bowl halftime appearance. She referred to the two big stories to come out during the two-week run-up to the game. She took on the controversy over allegations that the New England Patriots doctored footballs used in the AFC title game. Perry promises that nothing she does during the halftime show will be deflated. And she tapped into her inner Marshawn Lynch, the Seattle Seahawks star who won't chat up reporters. Asked about her personal life, she uttered Lynch's now-famous line: "I'm here so I don't get fined."
Katy Perry was asked her opinion about the allegations that the Patriots altered footballs.

PHOENIX (AP) -- First, reporters complained Marshawn Lynch wouldn't speak. But now that he has, few in the media like what he said about them. The Seattle Seahawks running back lit into the media yesterday -- ranting about why he doesn't talk to them. He says no matter what the media say about him, all that matters to him -- is his family.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch says he won't answer questions, no matter what.

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- Spike Lee is a fan of New York sports -- and not a fan of Boston teams. So you probably don't have to ask who he wants to win the Super Bowl. Lee says he was happy when the Seattle Seahawks won last year and hopes the same thing will happen this year -- especially since the opponent is the New England Patriots. Lee also says he doesn't need an NFL investigation to figure out what happened in "Deflategate." He says: "where there's smoke, there's fire." Lee also notes the Pats were busted for videotaping the New York Jets' signals during a 2007 game. Lee's comments came in Park City, Utah, where he was attending the Sundance Film Festival.
Spike Lee explains why he believes the New England Patriots are guilty in the "deflategate" scandal.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- More than 200 wanna-be "America Idols" get golden tickets to Hollywood this season. The final auditions were in San Francisco on last night's episode. Among those moving on are a Malibu blonde, a 15-year-old boy learning to cope with his changing voice, and a guy whose father abandoned him in Africa. Sixteen-year-old Tyanna Jones was the last singer to get a golden ticket. She should have no trouble with the crowded conditions of Hollywood Week. Tyanna is one of 11 kids in her family, which was homeless for a time. Harry Connick Jr. says she's a special young lady. Hollywood Week begins next week on Idol.
