YOKO ONO: Artist-activist Yoko Ono has tweeted a photo of the glasses her husband, music icon John Lennon, was wearing when he was shot and killed in New York in 1980.

"The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him," she wrote in a statement on Twitter Wednesday, what would have been the couple's 44th wedding anniversary.

"Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the U.S.A. since John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980," said a message on the photo.

The Hollywood Reporter said the image of the bloody glasses against a Manhattan skyline is from the cover of Ono's 1981 album, "Season of Glass," which was released less than six months after Lennon was killed by an obsessed fan who remains in prison.

Lennon was 40 when he died.


GIRLS ALOUD: The British pop group Girls Aloud announced via Twitter it is breaking up after a decade of performing together.

"Dear Alouders, we just want to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you!! This tour has been an amazing experience and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade," singers Kimberley Walsh, Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts tweeted on the Girls Aloud account Wednesday night.

"It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter!! Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together. Love you lots."

The BBC said the message was posted shortly after the five singers wrapped a show in Liverpool, the final date on their U.K. concert tour.


MALCOLM-JAMAL WARNER: U.S. actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner has ended his 2-year romance with actress Regina King, UsMagazine.com said Thursday.

"He said he wasn't feeling it anymore," an insider said. "She's still very brokenhearted."

No more specific reason was given for the split.

The magazine said King and her young son with her ex-husband Ian Alexander Jr. have moved out of the house they shared with the former "Cosby Show" star.

King leads the cast of the Los Angeles-set police drama "Southland." She also starred in the 1980s sitcom "227."


NADINE VELAZQUEZ: Nadine Velazquez is to be a series regular on the Los Angeles-set television drama "Major Crimes," TNT announced Thursday.

Best known for her roles on the television series "My Name is Earl" and "The League," the actress also appeared in the Academy Award-nominated, 2012 film "Flight."

Velazquez will play Deputy D.A. Emma Rios on "Major Crimes."

"Newly assigned to the Phillip Stroh case, Emma interviews Rusty [played by Graham Patrick Martin] about his involvement as a key witness in the murder case. She immediately causes a stir within the department, coming into conflict with Captain Raydor [played by Mary McDonnell] when she questions Raydor's intentions as Rusty's guardian and challenges her authority," a synopsis said.
