Weird Celebrity Insurance Policies

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 00:49:00 +0000

Weird celebrity insurance policiesAre the stars pulling our legs, or are their body parts at special risk? Here's a look at some of the unlikely anatomical assets celebrities got covered.Savvy stars or crazy coverage?With their paparazzi, bodyguards, mansions and private jets, celebrities live unconventional lives. And you can add one more thing to the list: absurd insurance policies with megabuck payout plans. These are not like typical insurance plans covering your house, car or other valuables. For insurance companies guaranteeing celebrity body parts for sky-high sums of money, the risk is high.But insurance giant Lloyd's of London is famous for taking on big-digit celebrity policies over the years, including insurance on the legs of dancer Fred Astaire and a finger of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.Gene Simmons' tongue'Gene Simmons, bassist for the iconic late-'70s band Kiss, added his own signature move -- sticking out his extra-long tongue to the band's widely recognizable stage presence featuring black-and-white face paint and distinctive jumpsuits.Simmons' tongue, which is said to have been surgically enhanced, was reportedly insured when Kiss was at its peak.Tom Jones singer 'chest hair'Many appearance-conscious men are looking to wax or trim their wayward hair, but pop singer Tom Jones must think a little fuzz is critical to his status as a sex symbol. In 2008, the New York Daily News and several other media outlets reported that Jones had his chest hair insured reportedly for millions.Other sources, however, say it isn't true.Dolly Parton 'bust'Country music legend Dolly Parton, who is almost as well-known for her curvy figure as for her singing and acting, reportedly has insured her 42-inch bust .That's pretty good money for a woman who grew up in poverty  in an isolated corner of the Great Smoky MountainsKeith Richards 'middle finger'Several media sources have reported that Keith Richards, the legendarily hard-living guitarist for the Rolling Stones, has insured the middle finger on his left handDavid Lee Roth 'sperm'Going a step beyond the idea of insuring body parts, David Lee Roth, the former lead singer of the rock group Van Halen, decided to put a premium on his sperm with an insurance policy , according to The Independent, a British newspaper. Some say this was a forward-thinking move, guarding against possible paternity suits.Coverage without the costIt's not always the celebrity who foots the bill. Instead, the insurance policy is often covered by an entertainment company or endorser. For example, Procter & Gamble has an insurance policy on the long, wavy tresses of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu because the NFL great is the face of the company's shampoo product.Likewise, Aquafresh toothpaste has insured the teeth of "Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera for millions, making her a poster child for the pearly white smile. Insiders speculate that insuring body parts is a way for a company to get media attention for a celebrity or ignite attention for a brand -- and to increase the overall dollar value of a highly profitable star.Shirley MacLaine vs. the aliensOK, so it's not a body part, but it's too wacky not to mention. Storied actress Shirley MacLaine is the owner of one of the most bizarre insurance policies in Hollywood, reports Parade magazine. According to that publication, MacLaine, who has been outspoken about believing in reincarnation and extraterrestrial life, owns a multimillion-dollar policy protecting her acting fortune against an alien abduction. In fact, more than 20,000 people in the United States have forked over insurance money to cover themselves in the event of an alien abduction.u2  Bono 'Back injury'U2 frontman Bono's recent back injury has cost his insurance company £11million, according to a report.Brokers Robertson Taylor are expected to settle the bill after Bono injured his back during rehearsals, reports The Sun.The star was forced to undergo emergency surgery in May, prompti[...]



lady gaga: ARTPOP and the Discourse of the Hysteric

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 00:28:00 +0000

The notion of hysteria as that of a suffering or wandering womb has been around since Antiquity. Yet, it was not until Sigmund Freud, in his famous case study of Dora, that hysteria became systematized vis-à-vis psychoanalysis as a form of pathology. In the middle of the twentieth century, Jacques Lacan took up hysteria and articulated it as a kind of discourse – an intersubjective relation or language game that we can inhabit. The following is a reading of Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP project and album, pre-release, through the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan, especially in regards to the hysteric’s discourse. These two thinker-artists, Gaga and Lacan, converge not only in their relation to the discourse of hysteria, but also in their project to commandeer desire, which it seems enables them to be read in tandem in a very complementary way.As has been argued in numerous Gaga Stigmata (GS) articles, “Applause” acted as a preparatory setting-the-stage or, in the psychoanalytic sense, as a void or lack pregnant with possibilities from which ARTPOP proper could spring forth. Little attention, however, has been given to the chronological and structural primacy of the song “Aura” in its provision of the imaginary framework that foregrounded the possibility of the ARTPOP project in the first place. Being the very first song “leaked” from ARTPOP (even before “Applause”), “Aura” frames and situates the entirety of the ARTPOP project within the discourse of the hysteric, which lends support to the reading of Gaga’s project as necessarily subversive insofar as the hysteric’s discourse goes after the hegemony of the master through the demand that the master legitimate itself even though this is ultimately impossible.That is, the hysteric is structurally situated within discourse in such a way that casts her very being into doubt – who am I? – and, consequently, she commands the master to fill this lack for her by answering the injunction – tell me! However, this commandment veils the fact that in the very act of questioning/demanding, the hysteric gives herself over to the master, thereby setting-up a symbolic dependence via the hysteric-master tension. “Aura” is precisely about this back-and-forth tease between the hysterical Gaga and the master: her fans, the media, the paparazzi, Perez Hilton, et al. – all of these constitute her big Other in the Lacanian sense, the master she desires to interrogate and to incite into performance for her pleasure.Gaga sings “do you want to see me naked lover?” Only if you perform for her first by telling her who she is. Read in this way, “Aura” situates the ARTPOP project within the sadomasochistic hysteric-master relationship and, thus, the songs, performances, etc. that fall under its auspices can be understood as various riffs off of, what is first and foremost, Gaga as hysteric.Indeed, the very title of the album, ARTPOP, alludes to its hysterical intentions: to destabilize and conflate meanings. That is, it amalgamates disparate domains – ART + POP – not only literally, to the letter, but more metaphorically within the semantic field. Gaga wants to fasten the binaries of the ART-POP dialectic: “we could, we could belong together.” In so doing, the signifiers of each domain are engendered into confluence, thereby creating a unique and different realm of meaning.Lacan calls these nodal points of reference the point de capiton, quilting or anchoring points, whereby desire vis-à-vis meaning is allowed to flow in unique and particular ways. Importantly, though, these channels are always contingent or, in other words, the signifier may be coaxed into adjoining another, different signified. In a sense, then, the point de capiton is a kind of tautology, a dialectic that is reflexive and self-referential. In “Applause”, Gaga captures this quite nicely when she sings,          One second I’m a Koons, then suddenly the Koons is me.          Pop cult[...]

The Naked Truth Behind Marijuana

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 14:33:00 +0000

RihannaNot all music video nudity is sexy music video nudity. Sometimes it gets REAL emotional, like in Rihanna's "Stay." So many tears in "Stay."   Smoking weed, marijuana or cannabis was once considered to be a very dangerous, not to mention illegal pastime. In modern times however, advances in information technology have allowed the proliferation of free speech leading to more open talks on the uses of marijuana as well as the true effects of smoking weed on the human body. In fact, one could say that marijuana's reputation has made an almost full heel face turn within only a few years thanks to better information dissemination. The notoriously famous internet celebrity Mugenjohncel has even created a Ren'Py visual novel game about called "Marijuana - The Truth," which is pretty much an informational documentary about the true impact of Marijuana on physical health as well as the applications of cannabis in the field of medicine. Although the negative stigma behind smoking weed still persists, people are now a lot more informed about the naked truth behind Marijuana.The fact of the matter is that smoking weed or pot is not really any more dangerous than overindulging in alcohol or smoking ordinary cigarettes. In fact, among substances which have been labeled as dangerous drugs, Marijuana is considered to be the least addictive. In fact, cannabis or weed is actually considered to be much less dangerous than smoking tobacco or cigarettes. Authorities on the subject matter of substance dependence rank Marijuana's addictive properties to be less than that of coffee.One issue about smoking weed that is often the subject of heated debates with compelling arguments from both sides of the Marijuana camp is about Marijuana being a gateway drug - in other words, a drug that could lead to further drug addiction towards more potent drugs such as cocaine. On the pro-Marijuana Legalization side of the camp, they claim that since Marijuana is not an addictive drug, smoking weed is no more dangerous than smoking cigarettes with high nicotine content and that nicotine is a much more potent gateway drug than Marijuana could ever be. One the other hand, studies undertaken on Marijuana as a gateway drug are inconclusive at best. While some studies state that there is a statistical relationship between Marijuana and other more potent drugs such as cocaine, the scientific rationale towards the transition from Marijuana to hardcore drug abuse is still a work in progress at this point.Just what are the effects of smoking weed on the human body? Marijuana has a number of long-term as well as short-term effects, although only a few of them can be considered to be serious. For its short-term effects, smoking pot has been known to cause loss of coordination, difficulty in problem-solving and analytical thinking, memory and learning difficulties, as well as generally distorted senses. In fact, although alcohol is a legal substance, drinking alcohol has much more dangerous short-term effects such as acute alcohol intoxication or what is better known as alcohol poisoning. As to the long-term effects of Marijuana, they are pretty much on par with that of cigarette smokers including lung damage, increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and daily coughing and increased phlegm production.Another effect of smoking pot, which is largely unconfirmed, is that it might cause the development of cancer. What is better known is that smoking tobacco and cigarettes can cause cancer. A study conducted on people who smoke weed regularly did show an increased risk for the development of cancer, but the results of this study could not be confirmed by related, relevant studies. It can be inferred however, that due to the similarities between smoking pot and cigarette smoking that the development of cancer through marijuana use is a definite possibility. Over-all, the naked truth behind [...]



I'm A Celebrity Stars Amy Willerton and Joey Essex Shower Together In The Jungle

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 13:58:00 +0000

http://6tgc-adult-sites.blogspot.com/Amy Willerton and Joey Essex seem to have grown very close in the jungle and now this year's I'm A Celebrity contestants, they seem to be spending more time together than ever. In Thursday night's episode of the show, the couple took a shower together, showing off their amazing bodies. Amy wore an emerald green triangle bikini and the make-up free star wore her favourite pearl necklace once again with her outfit. 'I’m scared, it’s cold,' said Amy apprehensively as she walked towards the shower.'Pretend it ain’t cold,' said Joey.'It’s not cold,' Amy tried to convinced herself.'I feel like we’re doing one of those spiritual music videos,' she added. Amy, 21, was the first to dive in while Joey took a moment to steal a sneaky glimpse of the pretty star. Joining her soon after, Joey, 23, showed off a surprisingly large pair of biceps and a very toned chest, while wearing a pricey pair of Louis Vuitton swimming shorts. The reality star brought along a couple of bottles of toiletries and Amy had a simple bar of soap with her and it wasn't long before the pair got themselves lathered up.At one point, Amy giggled as Joey gasped under the icy cold water but it gave him the perfect opportunity to flex his impressive pecs for the beaming beauty. The pair have bonded since the first day they met on the show. On Wednesday night, viewers witnessed Amy giving Joey a saucy shoulder massage which he really seemed to enjoy.But the show of closeness made fellow camp mate and Olympian swimmer, Rebecca Adlington, feel uncomfortable. She told the pair: 'I can’t take the sexual tension anymore.Edit‘It’s so awkward for me and Steve [Davis] just sat here watching you two. I feel like I’m watching porn with my parents.’But the close moments didn't end there with Amy also teaching Joey how to tell the time, while sitting closely together. http://6tgc-adult-sites.blogspot.com/Amy revealed that she is looking for love before she entered the jungle. She said: ‘I’ve been single for five months now and I’m open to meeting somebody. If there’s someone that I really like in there, maybe I’ll mingle.       ‘I would love a Tarzan to sweep me off my feet in the jungle. That would be amazing. I’m a real romantic. I’m definitely up for being a jungle Jane.’Soap stars: It wasn't long before Amy and Joey Essex got lathered up in the showerhttp://6tgc-adult-sites.blogspot.com/Reem rinse: No doubt Joey was giving his precious hairstyle a bit of TLCAnd it sounds like Joey's on the same page. He chose a two-seater blow-up boat as his luxury item to bring on the show with good reason. He said: ‘I can use it as a bed. And if there’s a salty potato [Essex slang for a pretty girl] in the jungle, I can take her for a little day out.’At least Joey can rest assured that if he does start dating Amy, his friends will give him their seal of approval.  http://6tgc-adult-sites.blogspot.com/Earlier, Joey's close pal and fellow TOWIE star, James Argent told ITV talk show, Daybreak he was jealous of the duo's chemistry. He said: 'She’s lovely… I am a bit jealous yeah,' The cheeky Essex lad added: 'If it doesn’t work out with them two hopefully he’ll introduce me to her after... She’s naturally pretty, she’s well spoken, a bright girl.'It was rumoured that Joey's ex-girlfriend Sam Faiers might be entering the jungle, which may have scuppered the budding romance but thankfully, ITV have now confirmed that this is not the case.[...]



Celebrity News Kendra Wilkinson

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 02:50:00 +0000

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett recently married "Playboy" centerfold Kendra Wilkinson. The wedding took place at the Playboy Mansion, where the couple exchanged vows beside the infamous Wishing Well on the Mansion's front lawn.Baskett secretly went shopping for an engagement ring for Kendra (who didn't even know that she was going to be proposed to) and he found it at Bernie Robbins Fine Jewelers, near his house in New Jersey. Hank had some difficulty buying the ring as whenever he was at Bernie Robbins', Kendra would call him."Kendra would just happen to call me then. Every time! I would be like, I'm getting my computer worked on, I'm at the shoe store. I made something up. I had to be sneaky about it because Kendra's a little inspector, always picking up clues," said Baskett.Finally, Baskett was able to seal the deal and Wilkinson wound up with a ring featuring a 2-carat princess-cut diamond surrounded by 60 diamonds. The idea was to get a ring that the sparkle and fire of which could be seen "from all angles. I'd keep it in my safe. And I'd look at it every day before practice, then I'd clean it. I'd come home from practice and still clean it. No one else touched it, but I still cleaned it," Baskett said.Baskett was nervous about how the proposal would go over. "I honestly felt this ring was the one. But there was still a lot of nerves. Like my god, I hope she likes this," Baskett says of his November, 2008 proposal. And Kendra said before the wedding, "I hope it turns out good. I'm nervous -- I don't like the 80's prom look. I like a simple look -- and it's hard to find it."Despite the pre-wedding jitters, everything seemed to fall into place. "Everything looked so beautiful around me -- it was surreal," Kendra would later say of her wedding day.It was a fairytale wedding, Mary Wilkinson, Kendra's grandmother, exclaimed. And Kendra's mother, Patty Wilkinson, added, "Watching [Kendra's brother] Colin walk Kendra down the aisle was really emotional and beautiful. She looked breathtaking.""Holly cried like a faucet and I held back tears. I'm usually the emotional one. The ceremony was short and sweet and bombarded by helicopters. [Kendra looked] like a princess," said friend Bridgett Marquardt, who is another former Playboy model and another former Heffner blonde girlfriend.Kendra should have looked like a princess with her ring and her $20,000 duchess-silk gown which was woven from 55 yards of fabric and covered by 1200 crystals; the dress was co-designed by Kendra and R-Mine Bridal's Armine Ohanessian.[...]

Celebrity Magazine Kirsten Dunst

Sat, 23 Nov 2013 03:33:00 +0000

When I first heard that Ryan Gosling pulls Kirsten Dunst out of a room by her hair, I was intrigued. It is nothing against Kirsten- it just sounded unusual. Then with a little investigating, I found out that the movie was All Good Things, which is based on the real-life mystery of a missing woman. It sounded like it might be a good, dark mystery/thriller/drama type of movie. So I went to the local Blockbuster, rented it on Blu-ray and was quite pleased with my choice.David Marks (Ryan Gosling) is the oldest son of wealthy proprietor Sanford Marks (Frank Langella), who owns real estate in the New York area, and has some shifty business relations. Sanford wants David to eventually take over the family business, but David isn't interested. At his father's request, David goes to check on an apartment complex and that is where he meets Katie McCarthy (Kirsten Dunst).They marry, move to Vermont, and open an all-natural supply store. On a visit to the shop, Sanford guilt-trips David into moving back to the city and working for him, claiming that Katie should be offered a better sort of life. David agrees to his father's suggestion, but then his behavior starts to change. Katie hears him talking furiously to himself. He starts to have violent outbursts. She is concerned and discovers that when David was a child, he saw his mother jump to her death.When Katie gets pregnant, David forces her to have an abortion. On the way to the clinic, David abandons her to take care of some business at his father's request. After this, Katie and David start to drift apart. She moves into their country house and he stays in the city. She goes to medical school and he moves up the corporate ladder. Katie eventually asks for a divorce, but David won't let that happen- he still loves her. So she must find a way to convince her husband to give her a divorce. She is aware that her father-in-law's business practice is not on the up and up and chooses to use that information to blackmail the family into letting her go. It doesn't go as she had planned. Shortly after, Katie goes missing. Then the movie starts to get crazy, but crazy in a good and captivating way.After watching the film, I couldn't resist the urge to search the internet for more details. There is some speculation about exactly what happened because Katie has never been found. One of the extras on the Blu-ray is interviews with the victim's family and their insight into the events. It is kind of interesting, but it is a shorter synopsis of what happens in the film. The movie is a little slow in the beginning, but once Katie disappears it just becomes a rollercoaster of insanity and dementedness. I was left feeling dumbstruck and astounded even with the speculation aside. It is a little creepy to think that this guy is still out there, living what I suppose is a "normal" life. You've got to watch All Good Things.[...]



Celebrity Style Kristen Bell

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 03:53:00 +0000

When the everyday citizen wants to bond or express their commitment to their spouse (or spouses depending on your moral beliefs), they go on dates, get married, get matching tattoos or something like that. While those things do happen in Hollywood, they sometimes do things that us normal folks can't do. For example, they decide to show their love by doing movies together and get it released all over the world. That's what Dax Shepard does when he works with his real life partner Kristin Bell in his movie Hit and Run.Charlie Bronson (Dax Shepard) is a young guy who lives with the love of his life Annie (Kristin Bell). All is going fine until Annie gets a job offer in Los Angeles. The couple decide that it's best for her to take the job and then pack up and hit the road for the city of angels. What seemed like a normal plan ends up being very problematic for the team. They run into some familiar foes who are out to for justice and some law enforcement officers who don't seem to know what they're doing.Dax Shepard is known as somewhat of a comedian by people who have seen him throughout his career. If you know anything about him, Hit and Run appears to be the type of movie that he would write and star in. It's one of those casual B movies that most will view as uncomplicated and that looks to be his style.There's some decent comedy in Hit and Run that you may be able to get some laughs out of, but a good portion of it misses its mark. Although that's a large problem with the comedy, that's not the biggest problem. The biggest problem is the fact that there's not much comedy to speak of. This is more of a movie with romantic themes than it is a movie with comedic themes. The romance aspect of the film fills up so much of the film's running time that it doesn't allow for the amount of comedy that I thought there was going to be.His character fits this romantic approach more than it would a straight up comedic one. I don't know if it's deliberate or not, but he plays a lovelorn and emasculated guy who's girlfriend appears to have his balls comfortably tucked away in her purse. It looks like she didn't even have to forcefully take them from him. It appears that he willingly gave them to her with a smile on his face. He's constantly whining and bending over backwards for her and it gets aggravating to watch after awhile.When he's not doing that, he's kissing her, hugging her and essentially telling her how perfect she is and that makes it even worse. They even have a picture of him kissing her as the wallpaper on his laptop. I expected some romantic stuff and I don't have a problem with that, but I don't really enjoy seeing what's supposed to be a crude comedy where normal but obsessive love appears to be the main focus on far too many occasions. As an audience, we're forced to sit through this and hear this couple blabber on about their relationship, their trust issues and how bad and offensive the use of a certain gay slur might be.Although it may not be a big deal to some, that last part that I just pointed out stuck out to me and it illustrates a flaw in the writing. It's compared to racial slurs at one point and that's dumb in the eyes of many, but it's also mishandled based on the way it fits in with the rest of the movie. You can't make it a point to say that using that word is wrong only to have the same character who said you should never use that or any word that can be seen as derogatory use a word similar to it later on and have no one react to it or even acknowledge it. That's seems hypocritical and ignorant and as a writer, your essentially admitting that you don't know what some of these words mean.There are other things in the movie that didn't make much sense either, but that one was one of the more egregious errors that stuck in my head and i[...]



Celebrity American Idol Kris Allen

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 03:40:00 +0000

Kris Allen was the surprise winner of the American Idol 8th Season. Everyone, including Allen himself, expected that Nick Lambert would take the crown and the million dollar record contract attached to it.His "boy next door" image apparently resonated with the 100 million plus votes that came in from across America.He is recently married to wife Katy who was often on hand throughout the season to cheer him on. Allen also was active in various Christian ministry before joining the Idol season including serving as a Worship Leader at New Life Church in Maumelle, AR and going on short term mission trips to countries such as South Africa and Thailand.There is some sense that Kris Allen won the so-called "Christian vote" on the show. On the next to the last show when there were three contestants including Allen, Lambert, and Danny Gokey, only 1 million out of 88 million votes separated Allen and Lambert. Gokey was very similar to Allen in that he was a music minister prior to joining American Idol. It is likely to think that many of the Gokey votes shifted to Allen in the show's finale.Nick Lambert, on the other hand was a flashy rocker who sported black fingernail polish on the show. He preferred artists such as Led Zepplin over Allen's frequent choice of Kayne West.While Kris Allen is guaranteed the music contract by virtue of being the winner of the show, Lambert will probably be signing his own contract quite shortly. The runner up has become more successful than the winner in many seasons as was the case of Clay Aiken and David Archuleta.[...]

Controversial Pakistani actress and model Veena Malik has gone missing in Mumbai since Friday morning, her manager said here Saturday.
Shooting for a Bollywood flick, “Mumbai 125 kilometres”, at Film City in Goregaon of northwest Mumbai, Malik left in a car after pack-up Friday morning and was not reachable since.
“Veena left after the pack-up yesterday (Friday) morning. In the afternoon, I received an SMS from her where she apologised for not being able to concentrate on the shooting, stating that she was disturbed,” the film’s director Hemant Madhukar said.
“I called her immediately, but her number was not reachable. I have not been able to get in touch with her since,” he added.
Malik’s manager Pratik Mehta also confirmed the development. “I have been trying to reach her since yesterday, but have failed. I have approached the officials at Bandra police station and have sought help in finding the whereabouts of Veena.”
However, the Bandra police denied they have registered a missing person’s complaint for Veena Malik.

She has also been condemned by Islamic clerics for her nude photos in an Indian magazine.
The actress is set to have her ‘swayamvar’ on India’s national television, through Imagine TV, which has earlier hosted swayamvars of Rakhi Sawant, Rahul Mahajan and Ratan Rajput.

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 06:36:00 +0000

Lindsay Lohan is a young woman with a lot of drama under her belt for her age. She has already been convicted of DUI, has been involved in high-profile car crashes, and recently admitted to cocaine use. In the past she has had difficultly getting covered by film producers because of her wild child ways. We hope that she is able to overcome her issues, settle down a little and learn to take care of herself. But until then, as long as Lindsay Lohan is in show business, she is going to need insurance for a number of things. If her file came accross your desk, would you "green light" an insurance policy for her next venture? Would you give Lindsay Lohan car insurance?

Weird celebrity insurance policies

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 11:52:00 +0000

Are the stars pulling our legs, or are their body parts at special risk? Here's a look at some of the unlikely anatomical assets celebrities got covered.Savvy stars or crazy coverage?With their paparazzi, bodyguards, mansions and private jets, celebrities live unconventional lives. And you can add one more thing to the list: absurd insurance policies with megabuck payout plans. These are not like typical insurance plans covering your house, car or other valuables. For insurance companies guaranteeing celebrity body parts for sky-high sums of money, the risk is high.But insurance giant Lloyd's of London is famous for taking on big-digit celebrity policies over the years, including insurance on the legs of dancer Fred Astaire and a finger of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.Gene Simmons' tongue'Gene Simmons, bassist for the iconic late-'70s band Kiss, added his own signature move -- sticking out his extra-long tongue to the band's widely recognizable stage presence featuring black-and-white face paint and distinctive jumpsuits.Simmons' tongue, which is said to have been surgically enhanced, was reportedly insured when Kiss was at its peak.Tom Jones singer 'chest hair'Many appearance-conscious men are looking to wax or trim their wayward hair, but pop singer Tom Jones must think a little fuzz is critical to his status as a sex symbol. In 2008, the New York Daily News and several other media outlets reported that Jones had his chest hair insured reportedly for millions.Other sources, however, say it isn't true.Dolly Parton 'bust'Country music legend Dolly Parton, who is almost as well-known for her curvy figure as for her singing and acting, reportedly has insured her 42-inch bust .That's pretty good money for a woman who grew up in poverty  in an isolated corner of the Great Smoky MountainsKeith Richards 'middle finger'Several media sources have reported that Keith Richards, the legendarily hard-living guitarist for the Rolling Stones, has insured the middle finger on his left handDavid Lee Roth 'sperm'Going a step beyond the idea of insuring body parts, David Lee Roth, the former lead singer of the rock group Van Halen, decided to put a premium on his sperm with an insurance policy , according to The Independent, a British newspaper. Some say this was a forward-thinking move, guarding against possible paternity suits.Coverage without the costIt's not always the celebrity who foots the bill. Instead, the insurance policy is often covered by an entertainment company or endorser. For example, Procter & Gamble has an insurance policy on the long, wavy tresses of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu because the NFL great is the face of the company's shampoo product.Likewise, Aquafresh toothpaste has insured the teeth of "Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera for millions, making her a poster child for the pearly white smile. Insiders speculate that insuring body parts is a way for a company to get media attention for a celebrity or ignite attention for a brand -- and to increase the overall dollar value of a highly profitable star.Shirley MacLaine vs. the aliensOK, so it's not a body part, but it's too wacky not to mention. Storied actress Shirley MacLaine is the owner of one of the most bizarre insurance policies in Hollywood, reports Parade magazine. According to that publication, MacLaine, who has been outspoken about believing in reincarnation and extraterrestrial life, owns a multimillion-dollar policy protecting her acting fortune against an alien abduction. In fact, more than 20,000 people in [...]

Jennifer Lopez has a $27 million insurance policy on her buttLet's be serious for a minute: if you were J-Lo, you'd insure your ass for $27 million, too. It's not like the music and movies thing is going to work out forever.Rihana Legs: $2.2 millionKlum has both legs insured but one happens to be worth more than the other:"The Victoria's Secret strutter's right gam is insured for $1.2 million, but her left is worth only $1 million. Why the discrepancy?
