A Peruvian author who lives in New Jersey is suing the folks at Disney for $250 million dollars, saying that stories, characters and plots in Frozen were stolen from her autobiographical works.

Read that again: a movie featuring a woman with the power to freeze everything, plus a talking reindeer and snowman, stole ideas from a New Jersey's autobiography.

Yup, makes perfect sense.

The woman refuses to back down, and is demanding a jury trial.

Disney, for its part, told CNN that the woman needs to "let it go."

Nicely played, Disney. I see what you did there.

Drake, the Canadian singer, got his start as Drake, the actor on the TV show, Degrassi.

On the show, his character, Jimmy Brooks, was wheelchair-bound.

So a couple in Toronto, after reminiscing about Degrassi one night and seeing some handicapped signs, decided to create some stickers that put Drake's head on top of the stick figures in the wheelchairs.

It's called Draking, and the couple says they're doing it to make people smile.

Sure, technically it's vandalism, and sure, it's probably offensive, but if you're smiling...

Never mind. It's still wrong. But Drake thinks it's great. Go figure.

Amanda Bynes - another child actress who's having trouble becoming an adult - was arrested at 3 o'clock Sunday morning. According to the California Highway Patrol, she was "driving under the influence of a drug,"

Hers how they nabbed her. She stopped at a red light. But in the middle of an intersection.

An officer pulled her over, and noted her "disheveled appearance," suggesting that she was under the influence of some substance.

A drug recognition expert was called in - seriously, that's a job now? - and Amanda ended up getting bookedand then released on $15,000 bail.

Here's the thing: she's currently on probation. Which could mean that when she sees the judge in a month or so, she could end up doing time.

Check out this video of her making another court appearance last year, disguised as a Smurf.

Nicholas Cage has a new movie coming out on Friday called Left Behind. It's about the people who aren't taken up in The Rapture.

And a famous Biblical character wants you to see it. Or not.

Producers released some posters over the weekend that quote Satan: "Please do not bring unbelievers to this movie."

You've got to check out the reactions some people have posted to the film's Facebook page. They actually believe Beelzebub gave that quote.

Do you think he's the first guy they asked for a quote...?

Things aren’t looking too rosy for the Secret Service today, as the agency’s director will have to answer questions in a congressional hearing on White House security measures.

This a day after it was revealed that the White House fence-jumper from two weeks ago actually got a lot further into the building than first reported. Turns out he overpowered an agent and made it to the East Room before anyone was able to stop him.

Another story released over the weekend suggests that it took the Secret Service about four days back in 2011 to realize that someone had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House.

If this weren’t so serious, it would be almost funny.

It’s almost like the Keystone Cops have been resurrected. Read about them here...

Chelsea Clinton gave birth to Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky last week, the first grandchild for former president Bill Clinton and possible future president, Hillary Clinton.

The Clintons are simply delighted to be grandparents.

In fact, Bill tweeted a note to hours-old Charlotte.

"@billclinton" said he and "@HillaryClinton" appear to be very happy about Charlottes arrival.

And they've still got a year or so to decide whether the baby will need to call grandpa and grandma by their Twitter handles...

Denzel Washington is back in the box office sweepstakes, and he's on top.

Over the weekend, his new movie, The Equalizer grossed over $35 million.

In it, Denzel plays a former special forces fighter who comes out of retirement to fight the Russian mob.

The movie is loosely based on the TV series of the same name from the late 1980s that starred Edward Woodward.

And before the movie even opened, they were working on a sequel.

That's some powerful faith right there.

In case you missed it, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin said their "I do's" in Italy over the weekend.

It was a star-studded but low-key event that managed to basically shut down Venice - but what a wonderful backdrop for the wedding photos, huh?

London's Daily Telegraph posted this video of the wedding party and guests catching water taxis to get to the wedding itself.

It's sort of like watching paint dry, but maybe you can make it entertaining by playing "Name That Celebrity!"

A contract employee for the FAA started a fire at the Air Route Traffic Control Center outside Chicago on Friday that grounded or rerouted thousands of flights on Friday. The disruption lasted into the weekend.

Authorities were alerted to a problem when a family member told them about a Facebook post the contractor had made. "Take a hard look in the mirror, I have. And this why I'm about to take out ZAU and my life." ZAU refers to the control center.

Looks like we’re going to have to start demanding that air traffic controllers pass through TSA checkpoints just to get into work.
