Entertainment: Michelle Obama Wears Jason Wu Dress for Inaugural Ball

(NECN) - Erick Weber, Jackie Bruno, and Nelly Carreno checked in with the day's entertainment headlines.

First Lady Michelle Obama rang in husband Barack Obama's second term with style. She chose a custom red Jason Wu gown for the inaugural balls. Wu also designed Michelle's gown for the 2009 inauguration. Michelle paired the dress with Jimmy Choo shoes and handmade jewelry. All of her outfits from inauguration day will go on display at the national archives.

Beyonce and husband Jay-Z also attended the inauguration. Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, and Massachusetts native James Taylor all performed during the ceremony. Katy Perry and boyfriend John Mayer were also spotted in the VIP inaugural crowd.

Swatting -- prank calls that lead to cops and often SWAT teams arriving at celebrities' homes -- has netted another victim. Los Angeles police were called to Chris Brown's home on Monday for a possible domestic situation. It turned out to be false -- Brown wasn't even home at the time. Tom Cruise was targeted last week; victims have also included Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher.
