Conrad Murray defense drops claim that Jackson swallowed propofol; Seth MacFarlane thinks ‘Family Guy’ should end

A mix of the morning’s entertainment headlines...
Dr. Conrad Murray. (CBS News)

Conrad Murray’s defense team dropped its theory that Michael Jackson swallowed the lethal dose of propofol Wednesday. It’s not clear what the new strategy is, but a source told Radar that the defense will claim Jackson died as a result of a Lorazepam overdose. They may also claim Jackson administered the propofol through an IV. (Celebritology; Radar)

Rashida Jones shared lots of interesting tidbits about her Hollywood upbringing (her parents are Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton), but the actress’s recollection of hanging out with Michael Jackson, whom she called “a little bit of an alien,” was truly bizarre: “We’d go out on the town together. He always wore those surgical masks. Once, my sister, Michael, ­Emmanuel Lewis and I got in a car with Super Soakers and went by a movie theater and supersoaked the hell out of people waiting in line. They had no idea they’d just been supersoaked by the King of Pop.” (Playboy)

Julianne Hough defended the “Footloose” remake she’s the star of in a very vague way that probably won’t convince any detractors: “[People] think that it's going to be a dance movie, which it's really not — the original was a drama with dancing in it — but also that it's a remake that's going to suck, because a lot of remakes kind of, you know, butcher the original one. ... Those are the two misconceptions. One, it's not a dance movie, and two, I think we really did it justice and made it our own but kept what needed to be there.” (MTV)
