Ai Weiwei has made headlines worldwide since his detention in China last year. As an artist, he is an eclectic talent who draws, paints, sculpts and does conceptual art, photography, cultural criticism and architecture. Now, a film documentary, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry sheds light on the man behind the dissident artist, with a goal that US and other audiences might learn more about Chinese culture and, perhaps, about themselves. Ai, 54, disappeared in his country in April 2011, and after an outcry by art lovers, free speech activists and politicians, he was found to have been jailed by Chinese officials.

Steven Tyler, the rock singer said he "loved and hated" his two-year stint as a judge on American Idol but admitted the TV singing contest was "not my cup of tea." Tyler, who announced in July he was quitting America's most-watched entertainment show after two years as a judge, told Rolling Stone magazine that he took the job partly to wait out an internal feud in his band, Aerosmith. "It was something to do while the storm blew by, to be honest," he said in an interview in the upcoming August 2 issue. "I loved it and hated it. It was a great job, I sat next to J. Lo and I made a ton of money. It was a moment in life and it became larger than life," he added.
