Phil Spector's Latest Hair Shocker

Originally posted 06/11/2009 11:40AM

The mystery of Phil Spector's hair has finally been solved.

Every time the producer would arrive at the courthouse to face charges of murdering actress Lana Clarkson, he seemed to have a different hairstyle. There was the electrifying afro in 2005 followed by a frizzy brown mop that was reminiscent of O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark. By 2007, Spector channeled his inner Carol Brady with a short blond pageboy cut.

Onlookers took to blogs, wondering what Spector's hair looked like under the various wigs. It became an obsession that far surpassed the interest in Spector's legal proceedings. And then, on June 5, Spector's true hair was finally revealed in a mug shot. In the least-shocking news ever, the world now has definitive proof a bald scalp is all he really boasts.

Closing Arguments Set for Phil Spector Murder Trial – Again

Originally posted 03/25/2009 10:00AM

Finally, it may all be coming to an end. On Wednesday, the jury in the long-gestating murder trial of Phil Spector is expected to begin deliberations after hearing closing arguments from the prosecution and defense.

The music producer, 69, is charged with second-degree murder stemming from the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson at his home in 2003. His first trial ended in 2007 with a deadlocked jury.

On Tuesday, Spector's attorney, Doron Weinberg, told the jury Clarkson killed herself, and presented 14 points of forensic evidence as proof, reports the Associated Press. The day before a prosecutor told the jury Spector was a "demonic maniac."

Spector faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted, although the jury will be allowed to consider a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter.
