The video for British singer Pete Doherty's ( note: pronounced "Dock-er-ty's" ) new song, "Last of the English Roses," ends with a kissing scene between two men, according to AceShowbiz.com . "Roses" is part of Doherty's debut solo studio album, Grace/Wastelands.

A report claiming that American Idol judge Randy Jackson dined with season 8 finalist Adam Lambert in Hollywood the night before Lambert's Feb. 25 semifinal performance of " ( I Can't Get No ) Satisfaction" has been denied by Jackson's publicist, according to Entertainment Weekly. The publicist said, "Randy did not have dinner with Adam Lambert. He ran into him as he was leaving the restaurant."

Heathers—the 1988 black-comedy movie that starred Christian Slater, Winona Ryder and Shannen Doherty—is about to become a musical, according to Reuters. Andy Fickman, director of the movie Race to Witch Mountain and the musical Reefer Madness, is working on the musical with "Reefer" partner Kevin Murphy. In a recent reading, actress Kristen Bell ( TV's Veronica Mars and the voiceover in Gossip Girl ) played the lead.

Attorney Howard K. Stern and doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich have been charged with conspiracy, among other things, in the February 2007 death of entertainer Anna Nicole Smith, Reuters reported. Stern was also Smith's longtime companion. Smith died at age 39 of an accidental prescription-drug overdose shortly after the birth of her daughter and the death of her son.

Ashton Kutcher got into a heated Twitter argument over using the word "gay" as an insult ( "That's so gay" ) , according to Advocate.com . After another user asked him to "stop being so gay," Kutcher responded, "can we just get clear, calling some one 'gay' or 'fag' is as derogatory as calling someone [ the N-word ] . U look like an idiot when you do it."

The world premiere of Pedro—a film about the life of former Real World resident Pedro Zamora—will run on MTV April 1. Written by Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar winning screenwriter of Milk, the film portrays the true story of Pedro Zamora, an openly gay, Cuban-American, HIV-positive AIDS educator who became famous for his activism, testimony before Congress and the TV show.

The remake of the movie Fame will feature a gay character, just like the original did, according to BGay.com . In the 1980 film, Paul McCrane played gay teen Montgomery; in the new version, Paul McGill plays Kevin, a gay student who reportedly has a significant role.

After 33 years at the New York Post, columnist Liz Smith, 86, has published her last column, according to the Dallas Voice. Her editor, Col Allan, said the current financial crisis forced Smith's termination; the gossip maven was making $125,000 a year.
