MGM’s lion habitat closed its doors on January 31, with the lions going to an 8.5 acre ranch called The Cat House.

It’s anyone’s guess as to what will take over the space the kings of the jungle once inhabited, but we wish them luck.
Five-time Grammy Award winner and hip-hop superstar Cee Lo Green is definitely headed to the Strip with a run of residency shows this fall featuring his flamboyant character “Loberace,” according to the Las Vegas Sun.
This fall at the big Planet Hollywood theater (Theater for the Performing Arts), Cee Lo will be doing a run of residency shows along the time period of September or so, but will have to work around The Voice’s TV schedule. We look forward to seeing it!
