In Other News...Michael Jackson, Alicia Silverstone, and Heavy D (no Boyz)
Meanwhile, Clueless star and favorite music video babe of the 1990s Alicia Silverstone tied the knot with her rocker boyfriend last weekend in Lake Tahoe, People reports. The actress, vegetarian, and animal rights activist wed longtime beau Chris Jarecki, lead singer of rock group S.T.U.N., who she had been dating since her Batgirl days. Silverstone was last seen in this year's Beauty Shop as Queen Latifah's favorite shampoo girl.
And finally, the popular sub-category of rapper-turned-actor has crowned a new star -- Heavy D has made it to the stage. The thespian once known as Dwight Meyers is starring in the post-war play "Medal of Honor Rag" (sans backing group, the Boyz) and shares co-producing credits with none other than the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith. The artist, affectionately known in his musical prime as the Overweight Lover, already has nine film roles under his belt, including Life and The Cider House Rules; his stage debut at Hollywood's Egyptian Theater propels him into the ranks of other such successful rap-tors as Ice-T, Ice-Cube, LL Cool J, Mos Def, DMX, and Marky Mark.
