'Batman v Superman' films at Michigan Central Station

Filming for "Batman vs Superman" has returned to Corktown, this time filming at the Michigan Central Station, the abandoned train station behind Roosevelt Park at Michigan and 14th Street. Lighting rigs, props and other telltale signs of a moving being filmed can be seen in a fenced-in area around the building.

Pure Detroit rases $9,000 for ALS

Pure Detroit clothing store raised thousands of dollars in August for families affected by Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease). The company donated 25 percent of every "Detroit City" T-shirt sold to the cause during August. That's the same T-shirt Ben Affleck wore when he recorded his ice bucket challenge to benefit ALS. The $9,000 raised will be given to three local families who are participating in Saturday's Walk to Detroit ALS event Saturday on Belle Isle.

Ariana Grande suffers rumors of diva-like behavior

She's known for her pop hooks and high volume ponytail, but lately Ariana Grande is also getting a rep for being a bit of a diva. The latest news that her life coach quit isn't helping those rumors. Page Six reports that the life coach, in charge of keeping her "centered and healthy," walked off the job months ago because of the singer's attitude. "He just couldn't take it anymore," Page Six quoted an "insider" as saying. "Everything people are saying about her is true." A second source, one from Grande's camp, says that this is all lies and the employee that was fired was a choreographer, not a life coach.
