Singer Kelly Price slims down, hits it big

graphic

LOS ANGELES -- When singer Kelly Price was growing up in a New York City housing project, she endured taunts about being poor and overweight.

"The only time I was happy was when I was singing, and I felt like at points the only time people liked me was when I was singing," she said.

Nobody's making fun of Price these days. She's following up on her platinum-selling debut "Soul of a Woman" with "Mirror, Mirror," which recently moved to No. 5 on the Billboard album chart.

"I'm excited about this project. It's a wonderful, wonderful expression of the new me," she told CNN's Showbiz Today.

Price, who sang backup for Mariah Carey and on Notorious B.I.G.'s hit, "Mo Money Mo Problems," also has lost 100 pounds to improve her health.

"I'm enjoying my life right now," she said. "I'm enjoying my career. I'm enjoying my music, and the best way to continue enjoying it is to be here to do that."



Streisand holds bash for Bill

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas -- Folks are coughing up some bucks next week to attend a party at Barbra Streisand's house.

Streisand plans to hold a benefit at her home during the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles to raise money for a President Clinton presidential library, which is expected to cost about $125 million.

Organizers say tickets for the fund raiser are by invitation only.



Looking for a new Lennon

LIVERPOOL, England -- An American film company is looking for someone to play ex-Beatle John Lennon in a TV movie.

"The film is special because it deals with the early life of John Lennon and it's about John Lennon rather than the Beatles," director David Carson told Sky News. The filmmaker is looking for someone between 18 and 23 to star in the film called "In His Life."

The NBC film will cover six years of Lennon's life leading up to the band's appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
