`BLURRED LINES' CASE GOES TO JURY

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The jurors in the "Blurred Lines" lawsuit will continue their deliberations today. Yesterday, the case went to the jury after lawyers finished their final arguments. A lawyer for Marvin Gaye's family told jurors that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams lied about how they created the 2013 hit "Blurred Lines" and should be financially punished. An attorney for Williams and Thicke counters his clients did nothing wrong in keying off the feeling of the late Gaye's music. Gaye's family contends "Blurred Lines" copied Gaye's hit "Got to Give It Up."

"HANG ON SLOOPY" MAKES ITS WAY THROUGH OHIO LEGISLATURE

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- "Hang On Sloopy" is a step closer to becoming Ohio's official rock song by law. The Ohio House voted 82-13 on Wednesday to pass the measure. The state senate will now consider the bill. The McCoys turned "Hang On Sloopy" into a number-one hit in 1965. It's been a crowd favorite at Ohio State University games and other Ohio sporting events. The Ohio Legislature recognized the song as the state's official rock song in the 1980s but it apparently did not make a law at that time.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The South Carolina Supreme Court says a journalist may publish the diary that she says belongs to James Brown's widow.

Summer says she got the diary in the mail with no return address. Tommie Rae Brown writes in it that she wasn't sure if she and James Brown were legally married before he died in 2006.

ANDY GRAMMER WANTS YOU TO PAY ATTENTION

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Andy Grammer can finally relax on stage. Grammer says when he's the headliner, it's bliss, because people are singing along if he steps away from the microphone. He started as a street musician, and he had to do a whole lot of thinking while he was playing. Grammer says it was like fishing, trying to figure out what song would make people stop to listen. He might have been playing a OneRepublic cover when a group of girls walked by, and he'd switch to a Beyonce' cover to grab their attention. Grammer says even as an opening act, it was a pressure situation, because he had 30 minutes to get people's attention instead of 30 seconds.
