CHRIS DAUGHTRY APOLOGIZES FOR SNUB
UNDATED (AP) — Chris Daughtry has videotaped an apology after he appeared to disrespect U.S. troops on “Fox and Friends” on the anniversary of D-Day. Daughtry had performed Friday and was asked to sing a patriotic song. He joked he was off the clock and said he’d watch the hosts sing. The hosts gathered up microphones as Daughtry left the stage, saying, “This is where I bail.” That caused an uproar online from viewers who felt he disrespected American military personnel. Daughtry has posted a video saying he panicked, and he’s embarrassed and ashamed of himself. He says it was a poor choice of words and adds, “Fortunately, our troops have never said I am off the clock when they had to do what they had to do.”
PSY DEALS WITH THE TRAPPINGS OF FAME
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Psy still gets a thrill that Americans recognize him. He says they’ll point and say “wow!” and he’ll say “wow!” back. He says if he’s out and about and no one asks him for an autograph or a photo, he’s a little disappointed. However, when he wants to be anonymous, it’s pretty easy. He washes out the hair gel. Psy says no one recognizes him with regular hair. Psy has a new song called “Hangover” that features Snoop Dogg.

ROB ZOMBIE WILL DO HAUNTED HOUSE IN PHOENIX
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rob Zombie says he’s thrilled to bring his haunted house to a new city this year, as long as he can make it “even sicker than last year.” Zombie’s Great American Nightmare haunted house will be staged in Phoenix from September 19 to November 1. Zombie will perform opening night. The haunted house features three parts based on Zombie’s horror films, “The Lords of Salem,” ”The Devil’s Rejects” and “House of 1,000 Corpses.” The haunted house debuted last year in southern California.
PAUL McCARTNEY STILL AILING
NEW YORK (AP) — Paul McCartney just can’t seem to shake the virus that laid him up for part of his overseas tour. And now the illness is forcing him to reschedule shows he had planned stateside. The former Beatle says he’s following doctor’s orders — and taking more time to rest. That means he will be delaying the shows he had planned for mid-June. Those shows are now pushed back until October. The first stop on the U.S. part of the tour had been set for Saturday. Instead, it’s now scheduled for July 5 in Albany, New York. McCartney will turn 72 next week.
