PEOPLE IN BRIEF: Douglas' son denied bail in NY meth case

NEW YORK -- Michael Douglas' troubled son Cameron was denied bail and a chance for outpatient addiction treatment Thursday as he awaits sentencing in a federal drug-dealing case.

Wearing dark-blue federal prison garb, the screen scion said nothing during the hearing at a Manhattan federal court. He briefly greeted his mother, Diandra, and other supporters as he was taken back to jail. His father did not attend the hearing.

Douglas, 31, pleaded guilty in January to selling large amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine out of a trendy Manhattan hotel. He faces a minimum 10-year prison term at his sentencing, set for April 14.

NEW YORK -- After turmoil that included public squabbling, threats of a lineup change and a rehab stint, Aerosmith is back and ready to rock.

''We're coming your way and rocking your world! Look out because here we come,'' he said as he looks at guitarist Joe Perry and the group breaks out in laughter.
