Depressed but sober . . .
Jim Carrey told CBS's "60 minutes" that he is better able to deal with depression now that he no longer touches Prozac and alcohol.

Carrey said he took Prozac for a long time but the drug didn't cure his depression.

"I had to get off at a certain point because I realized that . . . everything is just OK." "It feels like a low level of despair you live in, where you're not getting any answers but you're living OK, and you can smile at the office," he said.

Carrey says he still has bouts of depression but manages.

"I rarely drink coffee. I am very serious about no alcohol, no drugs," he said. "Life is too beautiful."

Striding across a specially rented red carpet leading to the school door, Ross beamed as she accepted a bouquet of white roses and signed record albums held out for her autograph.

But inside the small music conservatory, where a new full scholarship was named in her honor Saturday, Ross told an audience of more than 100 students that it's not "divadom" that defines her - it's motherhood.

"I'm more a mom than I am a celebrity, even though I know you know me as a celebrity. I'm a mother first," she said.

Ross, who has had her ups and downs in nearly 40 years in the music business, said she has always believed in herself.

"I actually don't remember ever not believing in myself," said Ross, 60. "I was brought up in the Brewster projects in Detroit and I always knew that there was a way out."

Speaking out ...

Prince William supported the oftcriticized behavior of his brother, Prince Harry, and stuck up for his father, Prince

weekend, AP reports.

Prince Harry has matured and simply does what he thinks is right, the 22- year-old William said of his younger brother, who landed in tabloids recently after scuffling with paparazzi outside a London nightclub.

William, who is second in line to the British throne, also said he wished the media would focus more on the charitable work done by his father. A recent scandal has centered on a memo written by Charles that criticized British schools for offering children too much false selfesteem and not enough realistic criticism.

"I just wish more of his charitable work was concentrated on because he does do a hell of a lot of work," William said. "I just really hold him in great admiration about the amount of time he gives up to do work here and there."
