Paul McCartney cancels Japan tour due to virus

TOKYO (AP) -- Paul McCartney is canceling his entire Japan tour because of illness.

The former Beatle got a virus last week and canceled several appearances, apologizing online to his fans.

Now, his organizers say he is not well enough to do any of the concerts in Japan, including the one set for Wednesday at Nippon Budokan hall, where the Beatles performed in 1966.

The official site of McCartney's "Out There Japan Tour 2014" said his doctors are ordering him "complete rest."

McCartney, 71, is still scheduled for a concert in Seoul on May 28 at Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium, followed by 19 U.S. performances.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Beyonce and Jay Z released a trailer for a fake movie online with guns blazing, and now fans want to see the film actually made.

The fake trailer concludes with the words "coming never."

Beyonce and Jay Z are sharing top billing for their "On the Run" concert tour that's set to begin next month in Miami.

Merriam-Webster adds da 'Yoopers' to da dictionary

NEW YORK (AP) -- Da "Yoopers" up dere in da U.P., Michigan's Upper Peninsula, have hit it big with inclusion of their nickname in Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.

The moniker for native or longtime residents of the region was among 150 new words announced Monday.

Many of the other new words and terms stem from digital life and social media -- spoiler alert, hashtag, selfie and tweep -- while others are food-driven, including pho and turducken.
