Jerry Lee Lewis weds for 7th time in Mississippi

JACKSON -- Rock 'n' roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis has married for a seventh time in Mississippi, and the new bride is his cousin's ex-wife.

The Adams County circuit clerk's office said the marriage license shows Lewis was married March 9 to Judith Ann Coghlan Brown in Natchez, Miss. The 76-year-old Lewis, also known as "The Killer," is famous for top hits like "Great Balls of Fire" and "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On."

The bride, 61, was previously married to one of Lewis' cousins and was close to his daughter, Phoebe Lewis, said the bride's sister, Carolyn Coghlan Gremillion of Madison. She said Brown started working for Lewis several years ago as his caretaker.

Gremillion said the wedding was small. The only guests were Gremillion and her husband, and Lewis' sister and her husband.

Lewis' last marriage ended in 2004 when he divorced Kerrie McCarver after 20 years together.


New 'Game of Thrones' might surprise readers

"That's one of the exciting things about what the guys are doing because they don't stick to the books, not all the time. So you think (someone) might be safe but you don't know."

Season 2 of the hit series kicks off on HBO Canada on Sunday and it doesn't take long for viewers to be reminded of just how loathsome young tyrant Joffrey is as king of the Iron Throne.

Fairley wouldn't divulge much about new plotlines ahead but hinted her character "goes in a different direction this year."

"She's not a stupid woman, she knows evil exists in this world and it's not just coming from people," she offered.

"There's something ethereal out there as well but in a dark, dark way -- and she has first hand (knowledge) of this in season 2."


Deadmau5-peat? DJ can win 5th straight Juno

TORONTO -- This could be the year of the Deadmau5-peat.

Yes, the Niagara Falls, Ont., electronic producer otherwise known as Joel Zimmerman has a shot at winning his fifth straight Juno Award for dance recording of the year, a category he's dominated since claiming his first trophy back in 2008.

For his part, Zimmerman doesn't think the nearly half-decade run is all that strange.

"It's not really weird when you're only one of like five Canadians making dance music these days," he said when Juno nominations were announced last month. …
