Ivanka's book release pushed back

NEW YORK – Citing "momentous changes" in her life, like her father being elected president, Ivanka Trump and her publisher are pushing back the release of her book "Women Who Work" from March to May.

Portfolio, an imprint of Penguin Publishing Group, has now scheduled a May 2 sale date. Trump began the project when Donald Trump was a still a long-shot candidate for the White House and she completed it before his stunning victory in November. The May publication will include a preface she wrote after the election.

Amid flak, artists join inauguration

Sam Moore of the soul duo Sam and Dave joins a the list of performers for President-elect Donald Trump’s inaugural events.

Moore told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he felt criticism leveled at singer Jennifer Holliday, which led her to back out of the event, was unfair.

The 81-year-old will perform Thursday. Others expected to play include country stars Lee Greenwood and Toby Keith.

Meanwhile, the Piano Guys are saying their decision to perform at an inaugural event is not a political endorsement. In a statement, the Utah-based group said they weren’t honoring an individual politician but hoping to spread "love, joy and hope." They added that they hoped "understanding" and "goodwill" would prevail.

Kidman frustrated at remark reaction

Nicole Kidman says her comments that Americans should support President-elect Donald Trump were merely a statement of her belief in democracy, not an endorsement of the incoming president.

Kidman tells Access Hollywood that her comments aired by the BBC earlier this week were misconstrued. She says, "I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American Constitution, and it was that simple." When an interviewer pressed her for more details, Kidman threw up her hands and said she was done commenting on the topic.
