Anita Pallenberg, muse for Rolling Stones, dead at 75

NEW YORK — Anita Pallenberg, a model and actress who had children with Keith Richards and served as a muse for The Rolling Stones, has died. She was 75.

A spokesperson for Richards told The Associated Press that Pallenberg died Tuesday at St. Richard’s Hospital in the city of Chichester, located in southeast England.

The cause of death was not revealed, but the statement released Wednesday said Pallenberg “had been ill for some time” and her family was by her side.

“A most remarkable woman. Always in my heart,” Richards said in a statement.

Pallenberg was born on April 6, 1942. She served as inspiration for the Stones’ “Miss Amanda Jones” and “You Got the Silver.”

She appeared in films like “Barbarella,” “Candy,” “Le Berceau de Cristal” and “Performance,” which included Mick Jagger.

Pallenberg first dated the late Brian Jones of the Stones, but later dated Richards, with whom she had three children (their youngest son died months after he was born).

Pallenberg said in an interview with The Guardian in 2008 she didn’t want to write her autobiography because publishers wanted dirt and drama about the Stones.

“I had several publishers and they were all the same. They all wanted salacious,” she said.

Pallenberg will be cremated and a memorial service is being planned. She is survived by a son, a daughter and five grandchildren.

Was Bob Dylan too freewheelin’ in his Nobel lecture?

LOS ANGELES — The whiff of plagiarism is blowin’ in the wind for Bob Dylan.

Phrases sprinkled throughout the rock legend’s lecture for his Nobel Prize in literature are very similar to phrases from the summation of “Moby Dick” on Sparknotes, a sort of online “Cliff’s Notes.”

Slate writer Andrea Pitzer made the discovery, finding 20 cases where Dylan’s text had very similar phrases to Sparknotes’ text.

Dylan recorded the 26-minute lecture in Los Angeles and provided it to the Swedish Academy, which called it “extraordinary” and “eloquent” in a June 5 news release. The lecture is required for the winner to collect $922,000 in prize money.

Trapeze artist to hang by her teeth over Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — The trapeze-artist wife of daredevil Nik Wallenda said she’ll be tethered to a helicopter when she hangs from the aircraft by her teeth as it flies over Niagara Falls.

Erendira Wallenda discussed her plans for the stunt during a news conference Wednesday morning on the American side of the Falls.

Wallenda’s stunt is planned for today, the fifth anniversary of her husband’s televised 1,800-foot tightrope walk from the New York side of Niagara Falls into Canada.

Erendira Wallenda said she plans to hold on by her teeth and her toes while on a Hula Hoop-type device suspended from the helicopter as it flies 300 feet above the Falls.
