CAUTIONED: A California judge gave Tom Sizemore a break Thursday when he let the 43-year-old actor remain free pending his sentencing next month for a probation violation, the Associated Press reports. Sizemore faces up to four and a half years in jail resulting from an altercation with his former girlfriend, onetime Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss. The judge let Sizemore stay out of jail, despite the fact that the troubled actor has failed seven drug tests, twice admitted methamphetamine use, and failed to show up for drug testing all within the past month. But the jurist had some harsh words for the actor: "There are two ways for you to go," Judge Antonio Barretto Jr. told Sizemore. "One is to recover. The other is to die."

U2 RULES: Year-end tallies for the concert business are in, and U2 has come out on top. The Irish band had the second biggest tour ever -- generating $109.7 million in estimated ticket sales, second only to the Rolling Stones's 1994 gross of $121.2 million. Otherwise, according to Pollstar magazine, 2001 was an off year for many groups and solo acts, with ticket sales down 7 percent. But U2 managed to sell out venues across the U.S. with a back-to-basics show, even adding dates after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
