This just in...: Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, Pete Sampras, Jenna Bush

  • Aretha Franklin has cancer. The Queen of Soul had surgery last week for an unspecified illness; a family member told Detroit's WJBK that it is cancer, but did not specify which kind.

  • Willie Nelson just launched a new political movement: The Teapot Party. In the wake of his marijuana arrest last month, the music legend listed the platform on his web site: "Tax it, regulate it, legalize it. And stop the border wars over drugs. Why should the drug lords make all the money? Thousands of lives will be saved."

  • Pete Sampras says many of his tennis trophies were stolen from a L.A. storage unit three weeks ago. Sampras, who retired in 2003, lost his 1994 Australian Open trophy, an Olympic ring, and other tour and Davis Cup prizes -- and none were insured. "Losing this stuff is like having the history of my tennis life taken away," he told the Los Angeles Times.

  • Jenna Bush and husband Henry Hager moved out of their Baltimore rowhouse last week and are asking $474,900 for the three-bedroom, three-bath property, reports the Baltimore Sun. The couple bought the house in March 2008 shortly before their wedding; no official word if they're still living in city.
