ARETHA FRANKLIN GETS IN ARGUMENT OVER A HAMBURGER

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (AP) -- Aretha Franklin and a restaurant server got into a heated argument about where she could eat her food. A spokesman for Franklin says she ordered a hamburger at Johnny Rockets on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls after performing a show. He says the server told Franklin she could not sit down to eat it because she had ordered takeout. The spokesman says the worker screamed at Franklin and was "very rude, unprofessional and nasty." A Johnny Rockets spokeswoman has apologized for the actions of "a new and very young employee." She says the owner has clarified his takeout policies.

5 SECONDS OF SUMMER SURPRISE FANS AT TICKET OFFICE

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Fans buying tickets for the 5 Seconds Of Summer concert in Inglewood, California, burst into tears when they got to the box office Saturday. The band members themselves were selling the tickets. Fifteen-year-old fan Maria Gomez says her only thought was, "Don't embarrass yourself!" Drummer Ashton Irwin says they're bad at math and probably would lose track of coins, but they'd work it out. Irwin can relate to being a geeky fan. He says they once met Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and after he left, they squealed.
