PROTECTED: John Travolta, 50, and wife Kelly Preston, 42, are under heavy security after receiving undisclosed threats, USA Today reports. "I think the best thing to say is 'no comment,'" the actor's publicist, Paul Bloch, tells the paper. Guards reportedly have been in place around the couple and their children for at least a month. At Sunday night's opening of Travolta's new movie A Love Song for Bobby Long, Travolta and Preston arrived after two bomb-sniffing dogs checked guests – who were also required to remove all pens from their pockets. At the post-premiere party, men's wallets were searched, the paper says.

Affleck stepped in to take over hosting duties when another prominent Democrat, former President Bill Clinton, turned down the gig. Joining Affleck is rapper Nelly, who'll perform songs from his chart-topping new albums, Sweat and Suit.

CRITICIZED: A poster showing OutKast's Andre 3000 holding a smoking gun has been branded "irresponsible" by Britain's Advertising Standards Authority, reports Reuters. The watchdog group upheld a complaint that the ad could be seen to glorify gun use but rejected another claim that it promoted racial stereotypes. The advertiser, record label BMG, had said it believed the poster for the hip-hop duo was no more likely to provoke violence than ads for James Bond movies. "We regret the ruling because OutKast are the last group that we believe you could level those charges against," said BMG press director Paul Bursche.
