Entertainment News:- Lindsay Lohan's video denying drug use and claiming to be in full compliance with court orders did not save her from a Beverly Hills judge Monday, who ordered her to refrain from alcohol, undergo weekly blood tests and wear an alcohol detection bracelet. Lohan's lawyer said she had proof that the actress had airline tickets and missed the May 20th hearing due to a lost passport, and declined the judge's offer to spend thirty minutes reading the list of reasons for the sentencing.

Entertainment News:
- Lindsay Lohan's video denying drug use and claiming to be in full compliance with court orders did not save her from a Beverly Hills judge Monday, who ordered her to refrain from alcohol, undergo weekly blood tests and wear an alcohol detection bracelet. Lohan's lawyer said she had proof that the actress had airline tickets and missed the May 20th hearing due to a lost passport, and declined the judge's offer to spend thirty minutes reading the list of reasons for the sentencing.

UPDATE: It looks like the actress may be able to shoot The Dry Gulch Kid in Texas (not Inferno, the Linda Lovelace biopic she was in Cannes promoting).

- During his Shutter Island promo tour in India, Martin Scorsese told The Hindu that he'd like to cast Al Pacino in the role of the older Frank Sinatra and Robert De Niro as Dean Martin, admitting, "I've had it in mind for a long time. Even the initial script is ready. I'm yet to spot the actor who can bring back Frank Sinatra alive on screen." The Playlist discusses possible incarnations of the young Sinatra and Martin, none of whom have been offered the parts.

- Simon Monjack, screenwriter and widower of Brittany Murphy, was found dead. He was 39. Two proposed causes are "natural" death or a possible prescription drug overdose, just five months after Murphy's death. Sadly, Murphy's mother discovered them both.

- Jesse James admitted to ABC's Vicky Mabrey that he "wanted to get caught," and is struggling with the reality that he hurt Sandra Bullock, the woman he was meant to protect. He will continue to speak out to "set the record straight" regarding Nazi and white supremacist allegations. Tuesday's Good Morning America will have the complete interview with James.

- The Twilight trio of Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner will present an Eclipse clip at the MTV Movie Awards, and will also appear at a Los Angeles Twilight fan convention on June 12.

- Critics react to the well-viewed Lost series finale, some favorably and some not.

Tech News:
- As many wonder if the independent AOL can survive, CEO Tim Armstrong told the Washington Post that the brand has "one of the biggest legacies in terms of what has changed the world in the last 50 years," and product manager Amy Craig divulged AOL's plan to "be the biggest newspaper (and magazine and TV network and movie theater) on the Web, creating millions of pages of news, reviews, statistics, how-to guides -- any content around which it can sell ads."

- Mark Zuckerberg addressed Facebook's privacy issues via the Washington Post, claiming: "It's a challenge to keep that many people satisfied over time, so we move quickly to serve that community with new ways to connect with the social Web and each other. Sometimes we move too fast." Facebook plans to simplify privacy settings and assures users that their personal information is safe.
