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.
