AMY WINEHOUSE FAMILY BLASTS DOCUMENTARY

LONDON (AP) -- The family of Amy Winehouse is criticizing a documentary about her. Family spokesman Chris Goodman says the film "Amy" is "misleading and contains some basic untruths." The statement suggests the film makes it look like Winehouse's family did not do enough to help her with her drug and alcohol addictions. The makers of the film say in a statement they worked with "total objectivity" and with the support of the Winehouse family. They say their film is the result of interviews with about 100 people who knew Winehouse.

JUDGE: MOM WAS OK IN TAKING DAUGHTER TO PINK CONCERT

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) -- Pink is not bad for an 11-year-old kid, according to a judge. NJ.com reports New Jersey Superior Court Judge Lawrence Jones has rejected a complaint from a father who says his ex-wife abused her parental discretion by taking their daughter to a Pink concert in December 2013 in Newark. Jones says Pink may have some suggestive moves and lyrics, but he sees nothing inappropriate about Pink's art for preteens. Jones says he found the mother did not compromise the girl's safety or health, and it sounds like they had "a really great time."

BILLY IDOL IS STILL A PUNK

NEW YORK (AP) -- Billy Idol thinks it's "amusing" to look at videos he made in the 1980s. Idol says they were clearly having a lot of fun in those days before computers. He says if the Internet had existed then, he would have loved to release music that way, because that's what punks would have embraced. Now that the Internet does exist, Idol is still a punk. He says he released a bunch of songs that Capitol Records rejected as a sort of kiss-off to the label.
