NEW YORK (AP) -- Flo Rida (RY'-dah), Natalie Rose and "The Voice" winner Craig Wayne Boyd have pulled out of performing at the Miss USA pageant following Donald Trump's remarks about Mexican immigrants.

AMY WINEHOUSE DOCUMENTARY COMES OUT THIS WEEKEND

LONDON (AP) -- Amy Winehouse's father is upset about the omissions in the film "Amy" that make him look bad. Mitch Winehouse tells Britain's Sky Television the film shows Amy dealing with a head injury and Mitch saying she doesn't need to go to rehab. He says the filmmakers cut the part where he said she didn't need to go yet. He says the filmmakers also failed to mention that Amy had been off drugs and had a five-week period of not drinking leading up to her death. Director Asif Kapadia says the film is meant to be about Amy and not about the people around her. The movie "Amy" opens tomorrow.
