This just in...: Tyrese Gibson to be grand marshal at Howard Homecoming; Charlie Sheen, back on the grind


Tyrese Gibson, 2010. (Kodak Jones/PictureGroup)

  • Howard University usually unveils its celebrity homecoming officials (in recent years: Taraji Henson, Terrence Howard) with much fanfare. Sorry, no longer possible in the Twitter era: Before the school could announce him as this year's grand marshal, actor/singer Tyrese Gibson did via tweet Tuesday. Oh well! The "Transformers" star will head up Saturday's parade; other celebs expected around the Yard this weekend include rapper Rick Ross and alumni Tracie Thoms and Amiri Baraka.

  • Charlie Sheen was back in Los Angeles on Wednesday, downplaying his wild 24 hours (hospitalized after police found him drunk and naked in a trashed suite at the Plaza Hotel). "The story is totally overblown and overplayed as far as the reality of the scenario," he said in a text to RadarOnline. No charges will be filed, but Sheen has agreed to pay the hotel $7,000 in damages.
