Sylvester Stallone: It's hard to get men to like you

LONDON (AP) -- Sylvester Stallone may come across as the ultimate guy's guy. But he says action stars like him are "the hardest characters to sell" to other men.

"Men are very competitive," Stallone said ahead of Monday's world premiere of "The Expendables 3."

"They go, 'Who's that? I'm sure he takes diuretic steroids, you know, he's shorter than he looks."'

"It's very hard to do it. People think 'Oh it's really easy,"' said Stallone. "It's good to jump around but to get other men to like you, it's very difficult. Men are kind of stand-offish that way."

The third installment of "The Expendables" sees the team come into conflict with a ruthless arms dealer, played by Mel Gibson. Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes join the cast of action legends. And there's new blood, including "Twilight" heartthrob Kellan Lutz and mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey.

Bet you're glad that you didn't put a ring on it

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a man was arrested at Jay-Z and Beyonce's Rose Bowl concert in Southern California after allegedly groping a woman and then biting off the tip of her boyfriend's finger during a fight.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that 25-year-old Roberto Alcaraz-Garnica of San Diego was taken into custody Saturday on suspicion of sexual battery and mayhem.

Pasadena police Lt. John Luna says Alcaraz-Garnica was accused of groping a woman in her 20s. When the woman's boyfriend confronted him, a fight broke out.

Luna says during the altercation the suspect bit off the tip of one of the boyfriend's fingers.

Alcaraz-Garnica was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. It isn't known if he has a lawyer.

American Idol contestant Michael Johns dies

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "American Idol" contestant Michael Johns, who appeared in season 7 of the hit Fox singing competition and was voted off in an eighth-round stunner, has died. He was 35.

The network and his family released statements Saturday confirming the Australian-born singer's death.

His family says it appreciated the support streaming in from around the world but said the loss of "a wonderful husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend" was devastating.

Fox called Johns "an incredible talent" and a part of the show's family who would be missed.

Johns had never been in the show's bottom three vote-getters when he was eliminated in April 2008. After "Idol," he released an album, "Hold Back My Heart," in 2009.

The Hollywood Reporter says Johns died Friday. A cause of death wasn't immediately available.
