Rock singer-song­writer Jes­sica Lea May­field, sched­uled to play at the Rivoli this Satur­day, has can­celled the show and the rest of her Oc­to­ber tour dates, cit­ing com­pli­ca­tions from a car ac­ci­dent. The Ohio na­tive stated on Face­book that she’d been rear-ended last month by some­one who had fallen asleep at the wheel and the ef­fects have lin­gered longer than she’d hoped.

A bust of Napoleon by French sculp­tor Au­guste Rodin long thought to be lost was found on dis­play in a New Jer­sey bor­ough hall where it sat for 85 years. The bust’s ori­gin was con­firmed in 2015, but of­fi­cials waited to re­veal the con­fir­ma­tion un­til Wed­nes­day; ex­perts es­ti­mate the sculp­ture to be worth between $4 mil­lion to $12 mil­lion.

Two re­al­ity tele­vi­sion stars and a pro­duc­tion team are apol­o­giz­ing af­ter racial slurs were aired on a pop­u­lar Quebec show ear­lier this week. Oc­cu­pa­tion Dou­ble, a Big Brother­like show, ear­lier this week aired cast mem­bers Élodie and Joanie wash­ing dishes and com­plet­ing house­hold chores while com­par­ing them­selves in French to “slaves” and say­ing “we are not n-----,” us­ing the rough French equiv­a­lent of the N-word.
