Selena Gomez Overwhelmed By Fame

Selena Gomez admits her fame can be ''overwhelming'', as she has seen her friends struggle with the spotlight.

Selena Gomez admits her fame can be "overwhelming".

While she has managed to navigate life in the spotlight without any major pitfalls, the 'Monte Carlo' actress - who is currently dating pop heartthrob Justin Bieber - insists it hasn't been so easy for her famous pals, who include Demi Lovato, who spent three months in rehab last year.

Asked how she has managed to stay grounded, Selena exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Obviously it's an overwhelming business, especially for those of us who have been in it since we were very young and have grown up with it.

"But you just have to make sure you have good friends around you and your family there to support you. It's important to have that support system around you to help you cope."

While the 19-year-old star has friends in the business - including 17-year-old Justin - who know what it's like to be famous, Selena also likes to hang with pals who can take her "away" from her showbiz lifestyle.

She added: "It's nice to have people your own age that are in the business who know what you're going through and who can help you and who understand what it's like. But equally its quite nice to have other friends who aren't in the business and can just take you away from it."

The 2011 MTV EMA airs live from Belfast Sunday, 6th November at 9pm on MTV

Kristen Stewart Loves British Pubs


Kristen Stewart loves having a roast dinner and a pint of Guinness in a traditional British pub.

Kristen Stewart loves British pubs.

The American actress - who is dating her English 'Twilight Saga' co-star Robert Pattinson - enjoys spending time in the UK because she can go out in public without being bothered and is a particular fan of eating roast dinners accompanied with a pint of Guinness in a traditional bar.

She told Glamour magazine: "In Los Angeles you have to be fairly selective about where you go, but I'm so fine here. It's similar to New York, in that people are doing their own thing and they feel like they're probably cooler than you, so I tend to be able to get around very easily.

"We have bars, clubs and restaurants in the US, but here you go to the pub for the afternoon and you have lunch. In an American publication, that would seem like, 'She's hitting the bars in London!' but it's just a different mentality here.

"I'm a huge Guinness fan and I've had some really good roast dinners. I prefer old-man pubs to Gastropubs, definitely."

The 21-year-old star struggles to choose her favourite memory of London but had a "f***ing incredible" time celebrating the turn of the year in 2009 and 2010 in the capital.

Asked for her favourite memory, she said: "God I can't even tell you, so annoying. Erm, hmmm... I spent my last two New Years here and both of them were f***ing incredible."

Celeb Music » Beady Eye Will Make 'Life-Changing' Album

Beady Eye Will Make 'Life-Changing' Album


Liam Gallagher has promised his band Beady Eye's next album will be ''life-changing'' and will be inspired by George Harrison's seminal solo LP 'All Things Must Pass'.

Beady Eye's second album will "life-changing".

The group are getting ready to start recording the follow-up to 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', and singer Liam Gallagher promises it will be a landmark LP in his career.

Referring to the group's debut, he said: "It wasn't life-changing, but the next album - that'll be life-changing. It'll be a much grander affair too, with strings.

"I'm really into 'All Things Must Pass' by George Harrison at the moment, so I think we'll be going down that road a bit more."

Referring to the famous Wall of Sound producer, he added: "(It will be) a bit Phil Spector-ish. I want it to be big-sounding. But there will be some rock 'n' roll too. You've always got to have a bit of rock 'n' roll."

Liam also doesn't understand how people could dismiss the group - which also includes Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock, who were in Liam's old band Oasis at the time of their split - just because it doesn't involve his estranged brother Noel.

He added to The Independent newspaper: "I was surprised that people were surprised [by how good the album was]. The idea that we wouldn't be able to make a decent album between us is stupid. I know what I'm doing, Gem and Andy have been writing great songs for years so they know what they're doing. Why wouldn't it be good?"

Amanda Seyfried's High Heel Slip In Time


Amanda Seyfried had a high heel mishap on the second day of filming on new movie 'In Time', which resulted in Justin Timberlake collapsing on top of her.

Amanda Seyfried collapsed in a heap with Justin Timberlake during a high heel slip on the set of their new film 'In Time'.

The 25-year-old actress was shooting an action scene with the singer-and-actor and as she was running in her stacked shoes she took a tumble which resulted in Justin landing on top of her.

She told Stylist magazine: "On the second day I was running and I didn't have the stunt heels on yet and I fell so bad . luckily I was holding onto Justin's hand so he had to swing me down without hitting my head - really funny but really scary at the same time. I literally flew underneath him, he landed on top of me. It was just because I was running so fast, the fastest I could ever possibly run with heels bigger than these (I have) on - terrifying."

Amanda loved the physical challenges the science-fiction thriller presented her with and although she enjoyed performing her own stunts, she doesn't think she could be a full-time action star.

She added: "I felt like a dude . I loved it. They didn't treat me any different because I was a female . (but) I just don't think I'll ever be like Angelina Jolie in that respect because it's just so full-on, you get really tired really easily."

Kelly Osbourne's Fat Friends


Kelly Osbourne thinks she is too honest with her female friends, as she often tells them they look fat.

Kelly Osbourne tells her friends they look fat.

The 27-year-old star - who has battled with her weight in recent years - has always surrounded herself with male friends and admits she isn't always comfortable with female companions because she is too honest.

She said: "I'm much more of a British girl than a Los Angeles girl. I'm not full of s**t enough to be an LA girl. But I have started hanging out with women more.

"I still find it tough to be around girls because I always say the wrong thing. If a friend asks me if I look fat in something, I'll be honest and say, 'Yeah' when she does."

Kelly has shed a substantial amount of weight since taking part in 'Dancing with the Stars' two years ago and while she is happy with her newly-trim figure, she still doesn't enjoy looking at herself in the mirror.

She added in an interview with Britain's Glamour magazine: "The pivotal moment was when I came out of rehab the last time and got a call from 'Dancing with the Stars'. I'd gained so much weight replacing drugs with food, so I decided to do it just to lose a bit.

"But do you know what the hardest part was? Being forced to look at myself in a mirror eight hours a day. I'm not the kind of girl who likes to do that. Now it's easier because I get sent all these amazing clothes by designers I love."

David Walliams' Fatherhood Nerves


David Walliams worries he will be a soft dad and unable to discipline his children.

David Walliams worries he will be a soft dad.

The funnyman and his supermodel wife Lara Stone both want children, but David admitted he fears he won't be strict enough with them and will be unable to discipline them.

He told Hello magazine: "I think the thing I'll have to get good at is telling them off, because I've been around my nephews and my friends' kids where you don't have to tell them off, you just do the fun bit. I've noticed people being really good parents, it's when they can be firm with their children at times if they do things that aren't good for them."

Despite his fears, David can't wait to become a father, because he loves being around kids.

He said: "We definitely want children. It's a big responsibility so it's easy to put it off. But then I'd imagine that there's no perfect time - a time when everything's tranquil in your life.

"I'm godfather to my nephew Eddie, who's five. We didn't have a religious ceremony so my title is something like 'responsible adult.' At least the adult part is true.

"My sister's also just had another baby, Frankie, who's about a month old, and loads of our friends have kids. I really love being around them."

Celeb News » Michelle Williams Almost Moved Director To Tears

Director Simon Curtis became very emotional when he saw Michelle Williams dressed as screen icon Marilyn Monroe for the first time.

Director Simon Curtis almost cried when he saw Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe.

The filmmaker was overwhelmed when he saw how well the actress could convincingly portray the late star in his new movie 'My Week With Marilyn' after she had her first costume fittings.

Costume designer Jill Taylor said: "We had long fittings with Michelle. When she stepped out as Marilyn for the first time, in proper hair and make-up, director Simon got very emotional. Almost teary.

"He'd been working on this film for seven years, so it was a big moment to see it finally coming to life."

Jill was astonished by how easily Michelle took to playing such an iconic figure and was delighted by her enthusiasm for the role.

She said: "My admiration for Michelle knows no bounds. I'd have found it so nerve-wracking taking on such a revered character.

"We'd discuss in details costumes for each scene. I'd show her all my references and she came with her references too. She was heavily involved."

Because budgets on the movie were tight, many of the costumes for co-star Dominic Cooper - who plays Milton Green in the film - had to be rented.

Jill explained to Glamour magazine: "Dominic delayed his trip to New York by a day so he could come for a night fitting. He's a flirty, gorgeous boy.

"If you buy vintage, you can't return it so we rented his suits from costume shops."

Simon Ratcliffe with Felix Buxton


Basement Jaxx star Simon Ratcliffe has revealed he and Felix Buxton have begun work on a new album.`

Basement Jaxx are "refreshed" and "ready" to record their new album.

The 'Bingo Bango' hitmakers released their last LP 'Zephyr' in 2009, and after finishing their last live tour in 2010 the duo took time out to pursue other projects, but have now started preparing tracks for a new record.

Simon Ratcliffe exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I think it's time to get on and do some Basement Jaxx tunes, we both feel quite refreshed and ready for the next phase.

"We've got a few tunes which need finishing and they should result in an album. There is going to be another Basement Jaxx album, definitely."

Simon added the work he and bandmate Felix Buxton have done away from the group and the fact they've worked on soundtracks to two films - 'Attack the Block' and 'The Hooping Life' - have inspired there new tracks.

He said: "I did my solo EP, Felix did a couple of dance tracks and the orchestral thing, it's been good as we've had a break from the pressure of it all, and doing the films was wicked, and throwing ourselves into a world we weren't accustomed to, you come across new sounds, textures, chord sequences - it's all good practice."

Simon also teased that fans will be able to catch a preview of what their new material will sound like, if they go to see them DJ, as they have started dropping tracks into their live sets.

He added: "We've started playing some tunes in our DJ sets, and that's how we always used to do it, when we started the first album we played the songs in our DJ sets and they morphed from there really."

Basement Jaxx are part of the line up who will be performing at the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project at Alexandra Palace on 12th November 2011. To find out more visit www.facebook.com/SmirnoffGB

Prince William and Duchess Catherine's charity efforts have been praised by former James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore.

Prince William and Duchess Catherine's charity efforts have been praised by former James Bond star Sir Roger Moore.

The actor an ambassador for charity UNICEF met with the royal couple in Copenhagen, Denmark, where they were helping aid relief efforts for famine stricken parts of Africa by packing boxes.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper. "They are both very interested in east Africa, it's so close to their hearts.

"It was just reiterating their passion for this cause and I think it must be a passion otherwise the royals wouldn't just give up a day of their very busy lives and the high demands there are on them for attending all sorts of functions and that's apart from the RAF duties of the duke."

The famine affected east African region is especially close to the newlywed royal couple's hearts, after William proposed to Catherine while they stayed in a log cabin in a remote part of Kenya in 2010.

Roger also said the royal's efforts in the campaign where severe food shortages are affecting some 13 million people echo those of William's late mother, Princess Diana.

He added: "I think comparisons are odious but [Diana] did wonderful things in bringing the world's attention to the danger of landmines and I think that their royal highnesses are showing an equal interest."

The Prince and Duchess were joined in their work at the emergency supply warehouse - a worldwide distribution centre for the charity by Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

The album produced four chart singles on the country charts: the title track at #6, followed by her only Number One hit, "Guys Do It All the Time."

Obsessed With . . . America Ferrera's Red-Hot Look

2012-03-03T10:53:58.330-08:00

America Ferrera provided irrefutable evidence that a) the right dress can awe on its own, and b) curves are brilliant. She wore a red Nicole Miller dress to the premiere of Chicago in London, forgoing big accessories (save for a sexy pair of red peep-toe platforms) in favor of highlighting her gorgeous curves.

Ron Weasley Almost Killed Off, Reveals J.K Rowling

JK Rowling has revealed she seriously considered killing off character Ron Weasley whilst midway through writing her Harry Potter novels. The ginger haired magician is played by actor Rupert Grint in the hugely successful movie franchise.

Speaking in an exclusive feature ahead of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 DVD release, Rowling reveals she considered killing Weasley "out of sheer spite". The famed novelist brought headmaster Albus Dumbledore, Harry's owl Hedwig and Snape to sorry ends, but she decided against killing off one of the story's three main characters, despite speculation that Harry was to die in the final book. However, Rowling admits the thought crossed her mind, she is quoted by the UK's Guardian newspaper as saying, "Funnily enough, I planned from the start that none of them would die. Then midway through, which I think is a reflection of the fact that I wasn't in a very happy place, I started thinking I might polish one of them off. Out of sheer spite" As for which character she had ready for the chop, the author explained, "I did seriously consider killing Ron".

After bringing both the novels and movie adaptations to a close, Rowling admits she made the correct decision in keeping the three main characters together, saying, "It's a real relief to be able to talk about it all".

She said: "I would love to have a cameo in 'Glee' or 'Gossip Girl'. I've recently worked on the movie 'Monte Carlo' with Leighton Meester - who plays Blair Waldorf in 'Gossip Girl' and Cory Monteith, who plays Finn Hudson in 'Glee' and I've always joked to them that I would take on a role in their shows in a heartbeat but unfortunately they're not the ones who make the casting decisions."

Selena recently finished work on the final episodes of her TV programme, Disney's 'Wizards of Waverly Place' and although she is hoping to pursue a film career, the 19-year-old star admitted saying goodbye to her character Alex Russo, was one of the hardest things she has ever had to do.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "My TV show 'Wizards of Waverly Place' filmed its last episode earlier this year so I would love to do a little bit more film work because I haven't done that much of it so far so I think that's the direction I want to go in next.

"Finishing on the show and filming my final scenes was one of the hardest things I had to do because obviously my character Alex was such a big part of my life for so long, I'm going to miss everybody from the show so much but they are still a big part of my life and we'll always stay in touch."

The 2011 MTV EMA airs live from Belfast Sunday, 6th November at 9pm on MTV.

Anna Friel Feels Safe With Rhys Ifans


Anna Friel is very much in love with Rhys Ifans because he makes her feel ''safe''.

Anna Friel feels "safe" with Rhys Ifans.

The 'Pushing Daisies' actress - who has been dating the 44-year-old actor since the beginning of the year after meeting him on the set of new TV movie 'Neverland' - is smitten with the 'Notting Hill' star, and he even gets on well with her six-year-old daughter Gracie, who she had with her ex-partner of 10 years David Thewlis.

She said: "I think one of the things that draws us together so much is our need to feel safe. You know, everyone has to go out there and face the massive wide world and face rejection and it's nice to have a sanctuary and a place to go and a pair of big arms around you and someone to say, 'Oh, you're all right'.

"He is brilliant with Gracie. We introduced her to the idea really gently and softly. The good thing is, she had seen him on the set of 'Neverland' and she said, 'You are very nice friends. I think he's very nice.' "

Anna and Rhys - who have a three-week rule to limit their time apart from each other - also have chemistry in the kitchen, where they have often have midnight "cook-offs" after a heavy night out.

The 35-year-old brunette beauty added in an interview with Tatler magazine: "Rhys knows I like things simple but actually he's the most amazing cook.

"We cook together. We often have midnight cook-offs if we've been out and we're both hungry. It's like 'Ready Steady Cook'. We hardly watch TV but if we do it's loads of cookery and travel programmes."

Kelly Osbourne Recalls Affair Humiliation


Kelly Osbourne says it was ''humiliating'' when former fiance Luke Worrall cheated on her with a transsexual.

Kelly Osbourne found it "humiliating" to be cheated on with a "chick with a d**k."

The 27-year-old star called off her engagement to Luke Worrall last year after learning he had slept with a transsexual and admits she had always thought the worst thing that could have happened would have been if he had sex with an ugly girl.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: "It was so humiliating. Everyone kept telling me that Luke was cheating on me but I never believed them.

"It's hard enough to get your head round someone cheating on you, but when that someone is a chick with a d**k... up until then, I'd always thought the worst way to get cheated on would be with an ugly girl.

"Because at least if they cheat on you with a gorgeous girl, it makes some kind of sense. But men are different, I guess; they can have emotionless sex."

Kelly also admitted she wasn't choosy about who she slept with at the height of her drug addiction.

Asked if she had had emotionless sex, she said: "Oh, when I was getting f***ed up on drugs I didn't care what I did."

Zoe Kravitz says her beauty routine is very "simple".

The actress - daughter of Lenny Kravitz - insists she doesn't wear that much make-up and doesn't waste a lot of time piling on cosmetics.

She told Teen Vogue: "I don't really have a beauty routine. I always use coconut oil and I always wear mascara. That's kind of it! I'm pretty simple."

Zoe - who is dating Penn Badgley - also revealed how her style changes every day as different things inspire her.

She said: "I don't know because I feel like it changes every day. But I feel like it's just inspired style. Whatever I'm listening to, or reading, or watching - you know, that's what inspires what I wear."

Zoe, 22, recently explained her parents have warned her not to get too caught up in the trappings of fame, and they have helped to keep her "level-headed".

Zoe added: "Having well-known parents is kind of a double-edged sword. It's given me wonderful opportunities, but people also like to knock you down because of it too and say that you have got things because of that.

"They told me not to take it seriously. People get very serious about the Hollywood fame thing and the reason I think I came out level-headed was that they didn't raise me to think it was anything serious. I had no illusions. People get way too deep about it and in the end it's just a job and we're all equal."

Lily Allen's accent British accent landed her a part on T-Pain's new single.

The singer - famed for recording in her native London voice - was spotted by the US hitmaker when her song ' Who'd Have Known' was used as hold music, leading to him asking her to appear on his single '5 O'clock'.

T-Pain said: "I picked Lily for the accent, I think that's what I love the most, the accent."

Lily has said she is flattered the sample - which takes the first lines of her track - was picked by T for his song.

She said: "I love '5 O'clock '! It's absolutely brilliant, and I'm really flattered by what he did to my original track!

"I heard how T-Pain first heard my song when he was stuck on hold and had no idea who I was or who was singing the song, but after he hung up he went on a mission to find out who recorded it."

Lily is also amazed how popular the melody of that particular song is proving, pointing out it has already passed from Take That to her to now over to the US.

She explained: "When I first heard the T-Pain track '5 O'clock', I was really impressed by how well he interpreted my song 'Who'd Have Known'.

"The ironic thing about this was that I had re-worked Take That's 'Shine' by writing a brand new lyric to their song - which became 'Who'd Have Known'.

"So Take That's original song continues to have legs by being re-written, twice over."

He said: "That was messed up actually. Lenny Kravitz - who I only met once - called and asked if I want to play drums on a track.

"I said, 'Sure', played drums on it and I never heard from them again. On the sleeve notes it says 'Michael Jackson featuring Lenny Kravtiz and Dave Grohl' but they didn't use any of my recordings. Dude, that's not cool."

Dave is always open to new musical projects so long as he is trying something different to what he has done before.

Explaining how he chooses who to work with, he told Red Bulletin magazine: "It has to be something that I have never done before, whether it's playing with someone I've never played with before, or a new band, or playing a type of music I've never played before. It just has to be a worthwhile project."

Henry Cavill Impressed With Superman Physique


Henry Cavill has admitted he is impressed with his own body for the new Superman movie 'Man of Steel'

Henry Cavill still can't believe the physique he achieved to play Superman in 'Man of Steel'.

The British actor didn't want to rely on CGI (computer-generated imagery) or make-up to provide him with the perfect body to play the superhero so he undertook a gruelling exercise regime instead but admitted he is still shocked he pulled it off.

Speaking in the December issue of Britain's Men's Health magazine, he said: "I had a big sense of pride. I was like, 'No shading. I don't want you to draw abs on me. I don't want you to put dirt in the right places. I just want to do it myself. I want to have the body.'

"I think the best thing I learned was that I can do it. A lot of people think they probably can't, until they actually do. When I saw pictures I would say 'Is that me?' You don't quite realise. It taught me that anything is possible."

While getting in shape for his role in 'Man of Steel' was tough, Henry revealed he eventually grew to love working out.

He said: "It's a great feeling to be in shape and strong. I don't mean that in an arrogant way at all. But you go to the gym and train hard every day and you learn how far you can push yourself. That becomes rewarding in itself."

The 17-year-old actress will take on the lead role in the movie about an alien race called Souls who take over Earth and its inhabitants but admitted filming her role - which will see a Soul named Wanderer and a human, Melanie vie for the same body- will be a challenge.

Speaking about the adaptation of 'Twilight Saga' writer Stephenie Meyer's book, Saoirse said: "We're doing 'The Host' at the start of next year. We're figuring out how to film it at the moment. Andrew Niccol the director knows what he's doing, I think it seems incredibly challenging but he knows exactly what to do so I feel very safe."

Saoirse also spoke about the expectations which come with being attached to a project written by the 'Twilight' scribe but said it would be impossible to prepare herself for the reaction from fans.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz at the UK premiere of 'In Time' at London's Curzon cinema on Monday (31.10.11): "I can see why Stephenie Meyer has such a huge following, she's a great writer. As for preparing myself for the huge level of fame like what the 'Twilight' cast have, I don't know if you could ever prepare yourself for something like that. If it happens I'll just have to deal with it."

Saoirse previously worked with 'Lord of the Rings' director Peter Jackson on 'The Lovely Bones' and compared the experience to "heaven".

She said: "I loved working with Pete, I loved all of the crew that he had working with him in New Zealand. It was actually kind of like working in heaven for about six months."

Joe Francis Sues Casino Boss Over 'Ruined Reputation'


Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis has launched legal action against Sin City casino boss Steve Wynn, accusing him of wrecking his reputation during their $2 million (£1.2 million) gambling debt battle.

The soft porn boss faced charges including theft and fraud in February (11) over the alleged debt owed to Wynn. Wynn sued Francis over the debt in 2009, but he reportedly refused to pay the full amount.

A grand jury had ordered Francis to stand trial, but Los Angeles District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell dismissed the case in September (11) after deciding there was a lack of evidence of wrongdoing on the filmmaker's part.

However, last month (Oct11), a judge in Nevada ordered Francis to hand over the cash - and now he has decided to sue Wynn himself.

In papers filed in Los Angeles Federal Court on Tuesday (01Nov11), Francis claims the casino tycoon ruined his reputation during the case.

He is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.

I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly."I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have.

Cheryl Cole Visits Sarah Harding In Rehab


Cheryl Cole has visited Sarah Harding in rehab after becoming ''really concerned'' about her - and she has offered her a place to stay in Los Angeles to escape from the UK when she gets out of the facility.

Cheryl Cole has visited Sarah Harding in rehab.

The 'Promise This' singer is "pulling out all the stops" to help her Girls Aloud bandmate - who checked into an American treatment facility in Arizona earlier this month to receive help for depression and alcohol addiction - and the brunette beauty has even invited her to stay at her Los Angeles home to escape from the UK when she checks out.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Cheryl is really concerned for her friend Sarah. She made time in her busy schedule to travel over to Arizona and visit her in the rehab centre.

"Cheryl feels really passionate about alcohol and drug abuse after years of worrying about her drug addict brother Andrew.

"She has told Sarah she is more than welcome to use her LA home as an escape pad when she comes out of rehab. A bolt-hole where Sarah can chill out and escape the London limelight and maybe try to save her relationship with Tom."

Sarah - who called off her engagement to DJ Tom Crane in the summer - has reportedly extended her stay in rehab and is unlikely to be out in time for Christmas.

Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh recently revealed 29-year-old Sarah is doing "really well" on the programme.

She explained: "I don't want to go into detail about Sarah, but she's doing really well."

David Arquette Leaves Dwts


'Scream 4' star David Arquette was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (01.11.11).

David Arquette was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (01.11.11).

The 'Scream 4' actor and his professional partner Kym Johnson left the ballroom show after coming in second from bottom of the leaderboard, despite wowing the judges with his vampire magician themed cha-cha-cha.

However, David was not too down about having to leave the competition and revealed he planned to continue dancing.

He said: "This whole thing has been incredible. I came here to get to know more about myself, face my fears, entertain people and to let America get to know me better. And dance.

"I would love to do Broadway. When you have time to actually rehearse something, more than a couple days, you can really nail things and you have more confidence.

"You're playing a character, and it's a whole different level of performance.

"I actually do feel like a different person physically, but mainly mentally.

"It's been a really great experience, and it's brought a lot of joy into my life."

However, the decision to vote David was greeted by boos from the audience and disappointment from the judges, when lawyer Nancy Grace - whose performance had been described as "wooden" was saved by the viewers at his expense.

Justin Bieber performed his single 'Never Say Never' on the results show and also sang 'Fa La La' with Boyz II Men to promote his Christmas album 'Under The Mistletoe'.

Amanda Seyfried is in talks to play porn legend Linda Lovelace in a new biopic.

The 'In Time' star is set to take on the lead role in the movie 'Lovelace' about the 1970s X-rated star, alongside Peter Sarsgaard as her pornographer husband Chuck Traynor, despite Kate Hudson and James Franco previously being linked to the film, according to Variety.

The adaptation has been written by W. Merritt Johnson from Eric Danville's book 'The Complete Linda Lovelace', and is being helmed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.

The film is a different production to 'Inferno' - which is also about Linda's life - which at one point had troubled actress Lindsay Lohan attached to star but will now feature Malin Akerman in the lead role.

Linda was married to Chuck while she starred in infamous porn movie 'Deep Throat', but later divorced him and left the adult film industry, which she later derided in a number of biographies published in the 1980s, including her 1986 book 'Ordeal'.

Production is set to begin on 'Lovelace' in January.

Taylor Lautner is set to join up with director Gus Van Sant for a small-budget independent movie.

The 'Abduction' actor is close to agreeing a deal to team up with the 'Milk' filmmaker on a movie based on a non-fiction article in The New Yorker magazine that the 'Twilight' star has optioned.

The 19-year-old Hollywood hunk is expected to take his career in a new direction with the project, which is set to be produced via his Quick Six production company, which he runs with his father Dan Lautner.

Plot details of the movie are yet to be disclosed, but it is thought filming is planned for the first quarter of next year.

The movie is expected to differ from the 'Twilight Saga' franchise, in which the Hollywood actor portrays werewolf Jacob Black.

Earlier this year, Taylor starred in 'Abduction' - which tells the story of a boy who finds his image in a missing person's file.

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1', the penultimate movie in the vampire franchise, is set to hit screens on November 18.

I like to be sassy. That's usually a breakup song. It's really in your face. I just end up writing it more that way because it's better for mainstream radio."A lot of times, if I'm writing, a lot of people think that's about a guy; it's not actually about that. It's more about my work environment. I write 'metaphorically speaking' a lot."I actually haven't dated in a while, so there's no breakup song for me on there."Kelly, 29, can relate to her sadder tracks, however, as the pain of one particular breakup with a "loser guy" is still fresh in her mind.She added: "I have been through one breakup that was real crappy. I think that'll last me for a lifetime, so I'm good."He was just a really loser guy and that kind of whole situation. I don't know what was wrong with me. I was never in love with him. We're completely different. I don't even know why."I think that is how lonely you get sometimes, when you're like, 'Well, you don't look so bad.'

Pixie Lott is hoping to team up with both Jessie J and Ed Sheeran to work on some new songs.

Pixie Lott wants to write songs with Jessie J and Ed Sheeran.

After recording her second album in the US, the 'All About Tonight' singer is keen to collaborate with fellow British stars for her next record.

She said: "Me and Ed are going to try to do some writing together. I joined him on stage at one of his shows recently so we have vowed to start writing some songs next.

"Jessie J too, we were meant to have a writing session years ago but our schedules didn't meet. We have to try and make it happen at last."

Pixie did, however, have a great experience making new album 'Young Foolish Happy' in California, in particular getting to work with soul legend Stevie Wonder on one song.

She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "We met through a friend and I found it all overwhelming. When we met he held my hand for ages; I guess it's just to feel your aura. We wrote a song called 'Stevie on the Radio' and he played harmonica on it.

"I'm thinking about my next tour. I always sing Stevie's 'Isn't She Lovely' live so I'd like to do more covers of his."

'Young Foolish Happy' is released on November 14.

Faith Hill Compares Creating Perfume To Baking


Faith Hill believes making your own perfume is similar to baking and says she loved working on her new fragrance with husband Tim McGraw.

Faith Hill has compared creating a perfume to baking.

The singer and husband Tim McGraw - who have been married for 15 years - have collaborated to create their own fragrance Soul2Soul, which will be launched in February next year and although she has previously worked on her own perfume, Faith revealed she is still surprised at the different combinations she can create.

She said:"It's amazing how a scent can change depending on how much you add of one thing or another. There's a science to it, but it's really, truly almost like baking. The combination of things that make a beautiful scent are unique; not what you would expect sometimes. I think that's been the most surprising thing."

The couple maintained their decision to create a fragrance together was a "natural progression" and a "collaborative effort".

Tim said: "It's something we'd been thinking of doing since I started in fragrance with my first scent with Coty in August 2008. We always thought it would be cool and a natural progression."

Faith added to WWD: "It's been a collaborative effort, for both of us, from the beginning. Individually, we have very specific things that we like and dislike, and we just started from that point. The bottles represent individually what we are - one more feminine, one a little more masculine. Much more masculine, and the scents represented things that Tim and I love of the country we live in, especially of the South. There are specific things that are distinctive to this area, and it was important that those were included."

The pieces available on her site are from the Fall, Winter and a Love Letters collection.

Kat revealed she sees the collection as an extension of her work as a body artist, and in keeping with her established style. explaining: "The purpose of me creating this clothing line is to share what Mom taught me.

Heidi Klum shocked party-goers by transforming herself into a skinless autopsy body for Halloween.

The German supermodel - who is renowned for her elaborate Halloween costumes and throws a fancy dress party every year with her husband Seal - was wheeled into her 12th annual bash on Saturday night (29.10.11) under a white sheet covered in blood.

It was pulled back to reveal Heidi in a skinless dead body costume created by Bill Corso, a film make-up artist who has worked on 'Cowboys & Aliens' and 'X-Men: The Last Stand'.

The 38-year-old beauty - who has previously dressed as an eight-foot-tall alien transformer, a crow, a robot and a black cat - said: "My inspiration was just to be dead."

On Halloween in 2008, Heidi controversially dressed as the Hindu goddess Kali, which sparked outrage from Hindu leaders.

Elsewhere, reality TV star Kim Kardashian dressed up as 'Batman' character Poison Ivy, complete with red hair and a vine-covered green dress, while Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel sported fake vampire teeth and creepy contact lenses.

Puss In Boots Pounces On Competition, Tops Us Box Office


The Shrek spin-off Puss In Boots, starring Antonio Banderas as the eponymous hero, was the star attraction over the Halloween weekend, taking an estimated $34 million to top the US box office. As expected, the 3-D movie by DreamWorks pulled in the family audiences and easily secured the top spot.

According to the Press Association, the movie was also a hit with the Hispanic crowd, which made up 35 per cent of its audience. The final figure represents a new Halloween weekend record, leap-frogging the $33.6 million that horror flick Saw III recorded in 2006. In fact, Puss In Boots dominated the weekend's market, with the Justin Timberlake sci-fi movie 'In Time' debuting with just $12 million. Elsewhere, Johnny Depp's 'The Rum Diary' took just $5 million, although it expected to fare better in Europe once it hits cinemas later this month. It was in Europe that Steven Spielberg's 'Tintin' made a strong start, taking in an estimated $55.8 million and topping the box-office in 17 markets, including the United Kingdom where it took $10.7 million.

Puss In Boots also starring Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis follows the famous feline as he does battle with the murderous Jack and Jill, helped by his trusty sidekicks Humpty Dumpty and Kitty Softpaws. During an interview with Collider, Banderas discussed bringing his own laid back style to the character, saying, "Ten years ago, my kids were still kids, but now my oldest is 26, and he's got a rock band in Brooklyn. He just said to me, That's a cool cat, dad".

Alexander Wang creates clothes for "confident and effortless" people.

The fashion designer - who has been linked with John Galliano's former job at Dior - says he loves to makes clothes for his friends including Zoe Kravitz, Erin Wasson and Alice Dellal because they are cool enough to pull them off.

He explained: "[I love to design for] the black sheep, the one who goes against the grain and can roll out of bed and feel confident and effortless."

However, Alexander's grungy designs are a world away from his home in New York which he admitted is covered in white flowers.

He told Style magazine: "I love white flowers, hydrangeas, orchids, roses. My mum's so superstitious and in Asian culture there are certain dates when you can't use white flowers. So she's always like 'Oh my God'."

Alexander has gained a huge following in the fashion industry with Marc Jacobs previously praising the Taiwanese clothing creator along with other young designers, and explaining there is "always room" for new starters in fashion.

He said: "People ask me about the younger designers, Alex Wang and all of them, I think they're great. I couldn't do what they do. It's not what I do.

"There's always room for new designers, new musicians, new artists, new writers. Madonna, I don't think is showing any signs of slowing down, but that doesn't mean Lady Gaga isn't taking over the world."

Daisy Lowe believes you have to be fearless to be a model.

The 22-year-old daughter of Pearl Lowe and Gavin Rossdale loves her job but says a sense of adventure is a definite plus when trying to get ahead in the fashion industry.

She explained to Live magazine: "I'm fearless when I need to be. In my work I've not been known turn down a challenge.

"I've posed naked a few times now, and that doesn't bother me. I've done some mad shoots with the US photographer Steven Klein where I've hung off a giant crane ad jumped naked into a tub of slime.

"I recently did a shoot that involved four huge snakes crawling all over my body. I spent the whole day fretting about it. On the day itself I didn't want them to smell my fear in case they decided to bite me."

Despite her hugely successful career which has involved walking the catwalk for Chanel, Daisy admitted she actually "always wanted to become a "forensic scientist".

She added: "I've always had a very analytical mind and science was my best subject at school. I haven't completely ruled out the idea of doing something like that when I'm older."

Florence + the Machine's live performances are "violent and frightening and overwhelming."

Singer Florence Welch, who fronts the musical project, feels like she has been transported to another world when she's touring, where she neglects the "typical boundaries" of everyday life.

She told USA Today newspaper: "I can't wait to get on stage, because there you don't worry about whether you'll ever get married because your life is insane, or whether you'll ever have another boyfriend again, you don't worry about the typical boundaries of how your life has to be.

"On stage, it's violent and frightening and overwhelming, and you're disappearing yet completely present. It's the hallelujah moment. You know what you've been living for."

Florence also admits she is a perfectionist when it comes to recording, and sometimes has "to be taken aside and given a chat" in order to complete tracks, because she puts so much focus into them having as much impact as possible.

She added: "It all comes down to the drums. That layering process is huge for me, the swells of music, the overwhelming feelings they create.

"When something really hits me, it makes me want to either jump off something really high or lie down and be buried. I want people to get hit and caught by my music."

Florence + the Machine's second album, 'Ceremonials' is released today (31.10.11).

Taio Cruz created his latest single 'Hangover' to honour drinkers who get "completely smashed" in Ibiza.

The 'Higher' hitmaker was inspired to write a track celebrating the party lifestyle after a visit to the Spanish Island - famous for its dance music club scene - and seeing the effects too much alcohol had on people first hand.

He said: "'Hangover' was inspired by me being in Ibiza this year. We had a whole week of going out and it being crazy, even though I didn't actually get drunk myself, but everyone around me was getting completely smashed. I felt like, 'We need to create an anthem for them. That would be fun.'

"I have to be honest: I really don't drink that much. I really don't. Seriously, I don't."

Despite insisting he doesn't like to drink very often, the 28-year-old producer and singer once had a "crazy evening" where two girls jumped on his back while he was serving drinks behind a bar.

He added to MTV: "I have had the odd occasion where it's gotten a bit crazy, and it's always in Ibiza. For me, I think my craziest moment was in Ibiza at a bar with a couple girls on me, piggybacked whilst behind the bar making drinks. I remember that was a bit of a crazy evening."

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in 'Black Sands'.

The former Governor of California will play a loner who wages war against a weapons manufacturer and his private army in the Southwest in the movie, which will be co-directed by former stuntmen Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy, who will also executive produce.

'A Good Day To Die Hard' writer Skip Woods has penned the script while Al Ruddy will produce with Bill Block and Paul Hanson.

The thriller is scheduled for release on February 17, which is President's Day Weekend in America.

This isn't the first movie Arnold has been involved with since leaving public office.

He is also in talks to star in independent action movie 'Captive', in which he would play an American real estate mogul living in Brazil who is kidnapped and held in an armoured truck hidden in a Sao Paolo landfill.

The 64-year-old star will also play a "substantial" part in Sylvester Stallone's 'The Expendables 2' after making a brief appearance in the first film.

In the sequel, Bruce Willis - who also made a cameo in the original 2010 movie - is set to play the main villain and Jean-Claude Van Damme his second in command while Arnold's role is as yet unclear.

James Mangold Promises 'Character' Wolverine Movie


Director James Mangold is looking forward to working on 'The Wolverine' because he can make it a ''character movie'' about the titular character.

'The Wolverine' will be a "character" movie.

Director James Mangold - who replaced Darren Aronofsky at the helm of the Hugh Jackman-starring Marvel film - is relishing the chance to tackle the latest big screen adventure of the comic book hero because he doesn't have to use the project to explain a backstory but can instead develop the character further.

He said: "It really was a simple choice to jump on board and take this thing on... at this moment when they actually want to explore the character.

"You can actually just tell a story about this amazing character from the start, just the way they do when you read a comic. It isn't an origin story, so I'm freed from that burden, and it also isn't a save-the-world movie, which most of them are. It's actually a character piece; it has more in common with 'The Outlaw' and 'Chinatown'. We're not crowded with cutting to nine other action heroes. We can really make a movie about this dude."

James has also revealed the movie has a strong Japanese influence and elements of a "detective story and drama".

He told The Playlist: "This movie is an intense psychological and action-packed character piece. It's much more about Logan getting lost in these very insulated worlds of Japanese culture, gangster culture, and ninja culture. The fighting is all influenced by Japanese martial arts, and half of the characters in this movie speak Japanese. This is like a foreign-language superhero movie; it's as much a drama and a detective story and a film noir as it is anything like a conventional tentpole film."

Shooting is scheduled to begin next spring, with the film due for release in 2013.

Ellen DeGeneres is opening a vegan restaurant in San Fernando Valley, California.

The chat show host and her wife Portia de Rossi have joined The Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde and film producer Steve Bing in investing in the eatery.

The menu will be created by celebrity chef Tal Ronnen - who prepared Ellen and Portia's wedding menu - and the restaurant's interior design will be designed by Waldo Fernandez, who has decorated homes for stars including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Tobey Maguire. The name of the restaurant has yet to be revealed.

Earlier this year Ellen also launched a diet advice webpage, 'Going Vegan with Ellen', with recipes and resources to help users adopt an animal free diet.

Ellen is also juggling her new restaurant plans with the latest series of her self-titled TV show, which she says she continues to work on in the hope of making people "feel good" about themselves and others.

She told Parade magazine: "I think we'll get a new audience that maybe didn't watch me because they only watched 'Oprah', and they have a void now. But it's the same goal whether we have 10 people or 10 million people watching. If we adjust in any way, it's so we can top ourselves."

On the message she hopes to promote with his show she added: "The world is filled with negativity. I want people to watch me and think, 'I feel good, and I'm going to make somebody else feel good today.'"

Gene Simmons' former KISS bandmate Ace Frehley believes the rocker is a ''sex addict'' who is making up for the times when no one wanted to sleep with him.

Gene Simmons has been branded a "sex addict" by his former bandmate.

The KISS rocker - who married longterm girlfriend Shannon Tweed earlier this month - only had sex "once or twice a year" in the early days of the band but slept with "hundreds" of women as he became more successful, Ace Frehley has claimed.

Ace - who gave up drinking alcohol in 2006 - wrote in his new book 'No Regrets: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir': "I believe Gene is a sex addict, in much the same way I am an alcoholic. If you've been with only one or two women (and had to beg for whatever you got off them), it must be intoxicating to suddenly have groupies falling all over you.

"You go from getting laid once or twice a year to getting laid a hundred times by a hundred different women."

Ace - who performed with KISS from 1973 to 1982 then rejoined in 1996 for six years - believes Gene's promiscuity had a "negative" effect on the band and says the rocker was not selective about who he got intimate with.

He added: "We all have our issues and vices, and I saw Gene's behaviour affect him and the band sometimes in a negative way... He would f**k almost anything. Short, tall, plump, svelte, attractive, merely tolerable."

Kim Kardashian Loves Cars


Kim Kardashian loves treating herself to a new car and says she is ''like a guy'' with her love of sporty vehicles.

Kim Kardashian is "like a guy" in her love of cars.

The brunette beauty - who married football star Kris Humphries in August - loves nothing more than treating herself to a flashy new vehicle as a reward for her hard work.

Kim - who owns several customised vehicles - said: "I love cars. I'm like a guy that way. I feel like, once a year - Christmas, birthday - I can treat myself. I work really hard, so why not get something nice?"

Kim admits tying the knot has made her "more reflective" and she no longer cares about what people think of her, even though her relationship with Kris has been speculated t already be in trouble.

She said: "Marriage has made me more reflective. It makes me want to chill out, spend time with my husband and take some time for myself."

"[Speculation about my marriage] doesn't p**s me off, because I don't care. If you'd asked me a few years ago, it would've made me very upset. I have thick skin now and I'm happy about that. I never thought I'd ever reach the point where I didn't care."

Despite previously stating her desire to start a family with Kris, Kim insists she is in no rush to have children.

She told Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I think we're going to wait, like, a year."

The Game - World Series Lights Up Friday Night


Who says people are abandoning their TV sets on Friday nights? Give them something worthwhile to watch, it would seem, and they'll tune in. And tune in they did en masse Friday for the seventh and deciding game of the World Series on Fox. According to a network press release, an average of 25.4 million viewers (peaking in the final half-hour with 29.7 million) watched the game in which the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Texas Rangers 6-2, making it the most-watched series game since 2004 when 28.8 million watched the Boston Red Sox end their 86-year Series drought by beating the Cards in four straight games.

In St. Louis, the telecast beat Super Bowl records as an average of 80 percent of all TV sets in the area were tuned in to the telecast, peaking in the final half hour with 89 percent. Ratings for the final game are likely to be adjusted upwards when final results are disclosed today (Monday). Fox said that Game 7 represented the single highest-rated Friday night telecast in the network's history.

Surprisingly, the game did not suck as many viewers away from NBC's season debut of Grimm as was expected. The drama averaged 6.49 million viewers and came in second in its time period among adults 18-49. TV ratings analyst Marc Berman said on his TV Media Insights blog that the result represented the "top rating in adults 18-49 for a Friday non-sports telecast on any network since December 21, 2010." And despite yanking original episodes of its Friday-night shows and replacing them with reruns, CBS took second place for the night among total adults with an average of 6.89 million viewers, peaking at 10 00 p.m. with 7.94 million viewers for CSI New York .

Cbs's Bob Schieffer Lays Into Herman CainFace the Nation host Bob Schieffer departed from his usual neutral-interviewer role on Sunday to lecture Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain about a scene in his current campaign ad in which his chief of staff, Mark Block, is seen taking a drag on a cigarette and exhaling the smoke at the camera. Cain is then seen smiling, almost wickedly at the camera.Explaining the commercial, Cain said that the only message it was meant to send was "Let Mark be Mark. ... Let people be people." At first, Shieffer remarked that he thought that the ad made smoking look "cool." Cain disagreed, maintaining that it was intended to make his campaign appear to be unique. At that point, Schieffer set aside his usual detached approach and scolded Cain."I had cancer that's smoking-related," he said. "I don't think it serves the country well -- and this is an editorial opinion here -- to be showing someone smoking a cigarette. And you're the frontrunner now, and it seems to me, as frontrunner, you have a responsibility not to take that kind of tone with this." Schieffer then asked if he would remove the ad from his website.Cain, appearing chastened, acknowledging that 30 percent of the responses to the ad were negative. However, he said, "It's on the Internet. ... We could take it off of our website, but there are other sites that have already picked it up. It's nearly impossible to erase that ad from the Internet." In the end, Schieffer prompted Cain to warn people in the audience "Smoking is not a cool thing to do."Bob Schieffer  Bob Schieffer [...]

Justin Timberlake - Puss Nicked As Box Office Goes To The DogsBlame the unseasonably snowy weather in the East. Blame the World Series. Blame Halloween parties. Blame the economy. Box office analysts were doing a little of each to explain the lousy weekend that saw blah openings for three new movies and mostly insipid performances from everything else. The No. 1 film, as expected, turned out to be Paramount/DreamWorks Animation's Puss in Boots , but its $34-million take fell below most pundits' predictions of $35-40 million. Twentieth Century Fox's In Time , starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, debuted with $12 million -- at the low end of predictions. But FilmDistrict's The Rum Diary, starring Johnny Depp, was blotto with just $5 million -- about half what it was expected to earn. The weekend before Halloween did apparently boost the fortunes of last week's winner, Paranormal Activity 3 , which slipped to second place with $18.5 million. Horror movies have been known to suffer worse drops in their second weekend stanza.The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Box Office Mojo 1. Puss in Boots, $34 million; 2. Paranormal Activity 3 , $18.5 million; 3. In Time , $12 million; 4. Footloose , $5.4 million; 5. The Rum Diary , $5 million; 6. Real Steel , $4.7 million; 7.

Harry Potter - Tintin Debuts With $55.8 Million Overseas


Overseas, Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin The Secret of the Unicorn had a solid debut in 19 countries, where it collected $55.8 million. Some 38 percent of that amount came from France, where the film opened with $21.5 million, the second biggest opening in that country this year after the final Harry Potter installment. Likewise, the movie was No. 2 for the year in Belgium, the home country of its creator, Hergé. The movie does not open in the U.S. until December 21. And while many reports maintain that the studio has delayed the domestic debut in hopes of garnering strong word-of-mouth -- presumably through social-network sites -- there are numerous examples of films performing solidly abroad, then tanking in the U.S. after a delay in the distribution process. One need look no further than the recent Rowan Atkinson comedy, Johnny English Reborn , which had earned more than $100 million overseas (its total is now up to $133 million) before debuting in the U.S. with just $3.8 million (it's now up to $4.5 million).

Defence Expert Claims Conrad Murray Made 'Dangerous' DecisionDr. Conrad Murray's decision to provide Michael Jackson with anaesthetic Propofol could have been ''dangerous'', defence medical expert Dr. Paul White has claimed in court today (31.10.11).A defence medical expert has admitted Dr. Conrad Murray violated an accepted standard of medical care by providing Michael Jackson with anaesthetic in his home.Dr. Paul White claims the decision made by the 'Thriller' hitmaker's personal physician - who is on trial for the involuntary manslaughter of the singer - to provide him with Propofol for two months before his death could be life threatening, violating the oath to do no harm.Speaking in court today (31.10.11), he said: "Without careful bedside monitoring, it could be dangerous."A prosecutor responded: "Could it result in death?"Dr. White added: "If the infusion somehow came opened up widely, certainly you could achieve a significant effect that could result in cardiopulmonary arrest."However, prosecutor Deputy Dist. Attorney David Walgren was quick to question him.He said: "Have you ever administered Propofol in someone's bedroom?"Dr. White responded: "No I have not."The prosecutor responded: "Had you ever heard of someone doing that prior to this case?"He added: "No, I had not."Walgren then went on to question the 20 minute delay in calling for emergency services.Dr. White said: "He was probably very anxious and in those situations, it is very stressful for anyone."Later, he added Murray was likely just doing a job he was "requested" to do, following on from Michael's asking several physicians to provide him with assistance with his chronic insomnia.He said: "I think he was providing a service to Mr. Jackson which he had requested, in fact insisted upon."Dr. Murray - who denies involuntary manslaughter - faces up to four years in prison if he is found guilty.[...]

Sacks and her team oversaw the lavish 20 August (11) nuptials in Montecito, California, and she insists the divorce news hasn't ruined her great memories from the day.

She adds, "They were a joy to work with. What we created together was absolutely amazing, so unique and so special."

Paul Wall Launches Rap Music Mobile Application


Hip-hop star Paul Wall has launched a new musical application for mobile phones to help aspiring rappers hone their skills.

The Grillz hitmaker has partnered with Jump Shot Media to create Battle Rap Stars, a new programme which uses voice-analysis to assign users a score based on their rhythm, rhyme and vocal presence.

The game requires players to compete against five other rappers before making it to a final round, which features a clash with Wall. The application also contains a karaoke mode for those struggling to come up with their own original lyrics.

Wall says, "I am incredibly excited to be part of this game. The technology is amazing and the game is just plain fun. Whether you are trying to perfect your skills on the mic or just want to have fun, this game really delivers."

Tinie Tempah Excited About Birthday Gig


Tinie Tempah is set to mark his 23rd birthday on tour - because he finds nights off from performing "boring".

Rather than mark the 7 November (11) with a big party, the rapper is scheduled to take to the stage in Manchester, England for an evening with fans.

He tells Britain's Evening Standard magazine, "Nights off are boring. I can't have a house party because people will steal things. I can't have a normal party because I just hate saying hello to everybody all the time, it's just jarring. And there'd be paparazzi outside.

"So I may as well do a show and get 15,000 people to sing Happy Birthday and have a crazy after-party, where I just sneak in with a hoodie and get up to loads of carnage. It's potentially one of the best birthdays ever."

Barry Manilow Delivers On Musical Instrument Promise


Veteran crooner Barry Manilow has made good on his promise to donate $300,000 (£185,000)-worth of musical instruments to a high school in Missouri following the devastating tornadoes which flattened a small town earlier this year (11).

The natural disaster swept through Joplin in May (11), killing 162 people and leaving others homeless, and the singer was so touched by the tragedy, he vowed to help restock Joplin High School's music department with new instruments via his non-profit organisation, the Manilow Music Project.

Manilow delivered three truckloads of gifts, including a concert grand piano, to the school last week (27Oct11).

A statement from the crooner reads, "I know first-hand how invaluable music can be to get you through life's tough times. It is an honour and a privilege to help these kids after such a disaster."

Rihanna Hospitalised With Flu

Rihanna scrapped a show in Sweden on Monday (31Oct11) after she was hospitalised with a nasty bout of influenza.

The Umbrella beauty was set to perform the latest date on her Loud tour in Malmo, but fell ill and was taken to a nearby medical centre.

The singer has been hooked up to an intravenous drip in a bid to replenish fluids, and she uploaded a snap of herself in a hospital bed on Twitter.com while apologising to her fans for cancelling the show.

A statement from the singer reads, "I am sorry to everyone who was coming to my show in Malmo. I was so excited to perform for you all. It would have been a great time…so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I'm really disappointed I couldn't be there."
