Rihanna Gave Up Friends For Fame

Singer Rihanna has lost a lot of pals over the years because they became jealous of her. The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker reveals that she had learnt to cope with the emotion from an early age, for she lost friends in school, when they became resentful that she had won a beauty pageant.

When I was in school, I lost a lot of my friends to jealousy, when I won a beauty pageant, Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. And, things only got worse when she grew up, for when she signed with her record label, the 19-year old lost even more pals because of the green-eyed monster.

When I signed my record label it got worse. People were very envious, she revealed.


Keira Knightley Played Scenes In Pirates Of The Caribbean Without Scripts

Keira Knightley has said that she played scenes in the Pirates of the Caribbean films without a script. While Knightley said that she enjoyed playing the role of Elizabeth Swann in the action-packed tales of plunder on the high seas, she says she’d rather not repeat her experiences in the Pirates films.

“I find it very difficult to work without a script, which is what that was,” she said. The 22-year-old added that the lack of script meant that she originally played a scene with martial arts star Chow Yun Fat slightly differently. “

That scene with Chow Yun-Fat where he dies, I didn’t know what the scene was about. I thought he had kidnapped me and that I was completely terrified of him. After four set-ups the director was like, ‘Why are you playing it like that?’ And I was like, ‘Well, he’s kidnapped me and I don’t want to be here. I’m terrified.' And he was like, ‘What? You haven’t been kidnapped!’”

Knightley, who opened the 64th Venice Film Festival with the premiere of her l…

Mattel Sues Porn Queen China Barbie of ChinaBarbie.Com

Earlier this month, Mattel, which makes Barbie dolls, was forced to recall millions of toys that were made in China because of lead paint and loose magnets.

So what's their next step in recovering from possible lost revenues? To attack porn star "China Barbie" of ChinaBarbie.com of course.

Rather than focusing on their own legal problems, the major US corporation has decided to take aim at suing porn queen China Barbie for her comparatively nominal monetary assets.

"The site's been up for like five years, so it's like why are they coming after me right now?" she questioned recently of the trademark-infringement lawsuit leveled at her Web site ChinaBarbie.com by the California-based toymaker.

"It's because they're in trouble right now with the lead poisoning thing, and everyone's been Googling it and that's how they found out about the site," she told Hasani Gittens of The New York Post in a recent interview.

Sex Awareness Very Poor Among Indian Women

Men in the land of Kamasutra have proved their mettle (ahem!) in the past and today they are happily surging ahead of their female counterparts, especially in terms of sex awareness as reported in a recent survey.

Talking about sex is still considered a taboo in a country like India. It is spoken about in hushed tones, behind closed doors. And it is a topic, which is supposed to make women quite uncomfortable. A recent survey conducted by the International Institute of Population Sciences, Mumbai and a Mumbai-based NGO, Population Council, reflects on the lack of sex-related awareness among the women.

Quite pitiable

City-based model Krishna Somani says that she was in her college when she got correct information about sex and related issues. She adds, "In the school it was only through the text books that I came to know about the reproductive system and when I was in the college, I learnt about contraceptives and STDs."

The 20-plus girl agrees that she was a little late in seeki…

India's Media Banned From Showing Monica Bedi's Nude Pictures

India's Supreme Court barred the media on Friday from showing nude photographs of a former Bollywood actress, said to have been taken by a camera hidden in the bathroom of the jail where she was imprisoned over a forgery case.

Monica Bedi was sentenced to five years in prison in 2006 over a passport forgery case.

Monica Bedi, who was released on bail from a jail in southern India last month, said the pictures shown by one TV channel on Thursday, whether "genuine" or "morphed", violated her right to life and dignity.

"If indeed the photographs were taken by installing a camera in the bathroom of the prison it was a serious invasion of the right of privacy of the petitioner," her lawyer K.T.S. Tulsi told the court.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan agreed with Tulsi.

"We direct all news channels ... to immediately stop telecasting the offending news item," the court ruled.

Bedi, a small-time actress, was extradited from P…

Keira Knightley Sick Of Britney Spears And Lindsay Lohan

The English actress says that she is sickened by celebrities who expose themselves to photographers, and claims their actions make them "s**ttier than everybody else.

Actress Keira Knightley has taken a pot-shot at celebs like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan for flashing their private assets more often than not.

The English actress says that she is sickened by celebrities who expose themselves to photographers, and claims their actions make them "s**ttier than everybody else".

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actress insists that she has too much class to follow in their footsteps.

"I'm not going to get blind drunk and then stumble out and fall over an puke up in front of people. I'm not saying I don't do that in private, but I try not to,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying at the Venice Film Festival.

"The whole celebrity thing is not magic. They're real people proving they're s**ttier than everybody else because they don'…

Keira Knightley - The Best Kisser Ever

Keira Knightley has kissed some of the biggest heartthrobs in Hollywood, but her current leading man gets top billing.

"James [McAvoy] is the best kisser ever!" a giggling Knightley, 22, said of her Atonement costar while sitting in romantic Venice.

Despite kissing Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom, Knightley – who is currently dating actor Rupert Friend – glanced at McAvoy and diplomatically dubbed him the best on the opening day of the Venice Film Festival.

McAvoy, 28, reciprocated the compliment saying, "I was blown away by Keira. The amount of poise and grace she has is just incredible."

In Atonement, a war drama set in 1935, Knightley plays plays Cecilia Tallis, an upper-class beauty whose fledgling love affair with the housekeeper's son (James McAvoy) is destroyed by a tragic misunderstanding.

McAvoy – who is married to British actress Anne-Marie Duff – told PEOPLE he was enjoying Venice "very much," adding, with a smile, "it's very romantic.&qu…

Princess Diana....'Was The Best Mum In The World'

Princes William and Harry today led moving tributes to Princess Diana, saying she was the best mother in the world.

Ten years to the day since Diana lost her life in a car crash in Paris, her sons addressed a memorial service in her honour at Wellington Barracks, near Buckingham Palace. The moving service was watched on TV by millions worldwide.

The princes were greeted with cheers from the crowd lining the Mall as they arrived. The Queen was also met with cheers despite the fallout over her public response to Diana’s death.

In his speech, Prince Harry said his mother should be remembered with love, adding: “We completely took for granted her unrivalled love of life. She was simply the best mother in the world.”

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, stayed away but well-known figures including Prime Minister Gordon Brown,Sir Richard Branson, Sir Cliff Richard, Lord Attenborough and Sir Elton John were among the 500 guests.

Britney Spears Places Kevin Fedeline Under Surveillance

Detectives from Javoric’s agency have been watching Federline’s every move as he parties in Las Vegas, and are especially keeping a close watch on who comes and goes from his suite.

As they get set to battle over the custody of their sons, Britney Spears is trying to get an upper hand on her Kevin Federline by reportedly hiring a top California private detective to monitor her ex hubby.

Britney is said to be reacting to Federline serving her friends and her aides with subpoenas to testify in the custody trial.

And she’s now turned to Lisa Javoric to dig up dirt on her ex husband.

Detectives from Javoric’s agency have been watching Federline’s every move as he parties in Las Vegas, and are especially keeping a close watch on who comes and goes from his suite, a source tells In Touch Weekly.

Flubbed Response Earned A Miss Teen USA Contestant The Third Place

A Miss Teen USA contestant is receiving a lot of attention for her confused, mangled response to a pageant question about Americans' knowledge of geography. Lauren Caitlin Upton, 18, got a chance to redeem herself Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show when she was again asked why one-fifth of Americans cannot locate the United States on a map. "I would love to re-answer that question," the Miss Teen South Carolina said. "Well personally, my friends and I, we know exactly where the United States is on our map. I don't know anyone else who doesn't. And if the statistics are correct, I believe there should be more emphasis on geography." That was much better than her previous response, a rambling answer that included references to "U.S. Americans" and mentions of South Africa and "the Iraq."See The Interview Here

A YouTube video of the Friday pageant has drawn a couple million hits and thousands of comments, many of them with harsh …

Britney Spears reported To Have Abused Her Sons

Britney Spears is under investigation for child abuse allegations that her sons have poor dental hygiene, eating and sleeping habits, it has been revealed. The allegations, lodged with Department of Children and Family Services, are contained in legal papers filed yesterday by Federline's attorney, suggesting it might have been Federline who lodged the complaint.

Spears, 26, is currently battling ex-husband Kevin Federline for custody, and the allegations involve her two sons Sean Preston, 23 months, and 11-month old Jayden James.

The Daily Mail reported today that Spears gives her sons bottles of fizzy drinks and lets them snack on sugary food.

The allegations were reportedly raised at an unscheduled hearing yesterday at Los Angeles Superior Court.

Although Britney was not present, her lawyer, Dennis Wasser, was said to be there along with Mark Kaplan, who represents her estranged husband, Kevin Federline.

Federline is also said to have served legal papers to a string of witnesses who…

Could Kate Moss Be The New Britney Spears?

Is the Kate Moss the new Britney Spears? Quite possibly, if this week's mags are to be believed. News is that Moss has reunited with her seriously demented former boyfriend: the druggie, cheater and aspiring criminal Pete Doherty. After throwing him out of her house last month for sleeping around, the filthy rich masochist, I mean, model, has retrieved Doherty from his new home in the gutter and treated him to a stay in a $3600-a-night-suite at London's glamorous Claridge's hotel. The couple were apparently "holed up" in the hotel together, "rekindling" their love. "She's a lost cause when it comes to Pete," says Famous, stating the bleeding obvious. "It's like he can do absolutely anything he likes - cheat on her, flout the law - and she just doesn't care." NW says Doherty's crazed behaviour also includes feeding his cat crack cocaine. We're hoping it's because that was all he had in the fridge (which is quite fe…

Britney Spears under animal charity’s surveillance after dog’s injury.

Pop star Britney Spears has reportedly been under surveillance of an animal charity ever since her dog was seen wearing a cast recently. A team of activists from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals visited Britney’s home in Los Angeles on Saturday, in order to ensure that the dog was getting adequate medical treatment after the injury.

The singer’s young sons Jayden James and Sean Preston had allegedly injured the pet terrier, due to which he suffered a broken a leg.

Lindsay Lohan's Estranged Father Grateful For Light Imprisonment To Lohan

Actress Lindsay Lohan's estranged father, Michael, has praised Los Angeles authorities for not awarding his daughter a longer prison sentence. He considers the verdict of the judge, who sentenced Lindsay to one-day imprisonment on August 23, to be a right decision because the actress was putting in her best efforts to mend her lifestyle.

"I am very thankful that the system saw it as longterm rehab that Lindsay needed and not long-term incarceration. This is a good thing. Lindsay is putting her life back in order. I believe Lindsay wants to do that," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Naomi Campbell Plans To Set Modelling Agency To Check Racism

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has vowed to set up her own modelling agency in her beloved Kenya in an attempt to redress the balance between black and white fashion models.

She made her fiery voice loud and clear (once again), after telling a Kenyan journalist earlier this week. “It’s a pity that people don’t appreciate black beauty.” She continued. “There is prejudice. It is a problem and I can’t go along anymore with brushing it under the carpet.”

Campbell, notorious for her temper tantrums and who has earned a lucrative living as one of the world’s most famous black models, was speaking at a press conference in the beach resort of Malindi, Kenya, where she is on holiday.

The 37-year-old said she found it harder to get onto the coveted front cover as editors of magazines like Vogue consistently chose less prominent white models for news stand impact.

“This business is about selling, and blonde and blue-eyed girls are what sell.”

“Black models are being sidelined by the major modelling agenci…

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt In Hampton To Raise Funds For New Orleans

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt treated their kids to the quintessential New York City weekend, complete with a trip to a hot-dog cart and a carousel ride in Central Park. Then on Saturday night, it was all about helping a good cause: The pair took a helicopter to the Hamptons to host a dinner party raising money to help rebuild New Orleans.

Both dressed in white, Jolie, 32, and Pitt, 43, left Manhattan and flew into Westhampton for the event, after they were diverted from nearby East Hampton because of foggy conditions. From there, the couple ended up taking a cab to the home of Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff, the married couple who co-founded the Tribeca Film Festival with Robert De Niro.

Christie Brinkley, Ellen Barkin and Jimmy Buffett were among the celeb guests, New York's Daily News reports, and Pitt himself gave a speech on helping those affected by Katrina.

The more than 50 guests were served cocktails followed by dinner (a buffet of lamb, salmon and corn pudding), all under …

Lady Laura Bush Skips APEC Summit For Health Reasons

US President George W. Bush is leaving the APEC summit in Australia early, and now US First Lady Laura Bush isn't going at all, her office said overnight, citing her doctors' advice. "Mrs Bush extended her regrets in a telephone conversation yesterday to Mrs Janette Howard, wife of Prime Minister John Howard," her spokeswoman, Sally McDonough, said. "Mrs Bush has been treated with physical therapy for a pinched nerve, which she injured while hiking earlier this year. Her physicians have strongly advised her to not travel overseas in order to avoid potential complication and aggravation by extended long distance travel," said Ms McDonough. Mr Howard said earlier this month that Mr Bush will arrive in Sydney on September 4, two days earlier than scheduled, and return to Washington while the September 7-9 Asia-Pacific Economic (APEC) summit is still underway. Mr Howard said Mr Bush's schedule bent to accommodate the release of a critical September 15 progres…

Kerryn McCann Plans A Hard Fight Against Cancer

Champion marathon runner Kerryn McCann has spoken publicly for the first time since being diagnosed with breast cancer, saying there's a tough battle ahead but she's determined to fight. The two-time Commonwealth Games champion and three-time Olympian, 40, is pregnant and was diagnosed with the disease two weeks ago. She has already had surgery to remove a lump from her breast and is due to start 18 weeks of chemotherapy after the birth of her third child, which is expected to be induced on September 5, Fairfax has reported. "It's worth fighting for another little baby," she told Fairfax. "I plan on fighting the cancer and other women have been through it so I can do it too." McCann said the diagnosis had been a shock. She said she had no family history of the disease she didn't think fit and healthy people would ever get cancer. "It has all happened so quickly but I think the good news is it is treatable," she said. "It's a rough road ah…

Increasing Chinese Women Are Turning To Prostitution

In an attempt to escape poverty, women in China are increasingly turning to prostitution and competition for clients has reportedly resulted in lower pay and more dangerous conditions for China's estimated ten-million sex workers.

Although prostitution is technically illegal in China, freelance sex workers operate openly throughout the country at every level of society, the International Herald Tribune reports. They work in bars and state-owned hotels as well as in poor neighborhoods.

Although open prostitution in China is common today, it was nearly nonexistent a quarter of a century ago, reports Asian studies scholar Jinghao Zhou in China: an International Journal.

The recent resurgence of prostitution, he says, comes from economic changes that have taken place in China over the last three decades -- rapid urbanization due to globalization, and the reform of China's market economy.

Sociology and AIDS Policy Professor Jing Jun told the Washington Post that China's thriving s…

HIV Positive Husband Kills Wife For Not Having Sex With Him

An HIV positive man has been arrested by the Dahisar police for allegedly poisoning his wife.

The 26-year-old woman, who is fighting for her life in a hospital, had refused to have sex with him.

Senior Police Inspector Ravi Thakur said factory labourer Dilip Barut (30), a resident of Chitrakoot building in Ashokvan, married Yogita in 2002.

"Yogita gave birth to a girl two years later, but her in-laws were not happy as they had wanted a boy," Thakur said.

A year later Barut was diagnosed HIV-positive. Yogita left Barut to live with her mother Pramila Bhabat at Oripada in Dahisar (East).

"Only when Dilip promised her he would discontinue sexual relations did she go back, for the sake of her daughter," said a teary-eyed Bhabat. "But her in-laws went on pestering her to try again for a boy."

Late one night last week, the police said, Barut returned home drunk and demanded that Yogita have sex with him. Hearing the two fight, Barut's mother Anita came into their…

Bahraini Women Duped Into Sexual Slavery

Many Asian women in Bahrain are being duped into working as sex slaves for men who lure them with promises of marriage, according to Thai Ambassador Phithak Phrombubpha.

He says victims are put up in apartments and visited once a week by their boyfriends, who brainwash them into believing they will eventually live together and start a family.

Mr Phrombubpha said women who want to escape are powerless to act as their passports are confiscated and once their visit visas expire they become illegal residents who rack up huge overstay fines that they have no means to pay.

His comments come after one victim of human trafficking, who managed to escape from her captor, came to the embassy seeking help.

The 25-year-old, whose identity is being protected, is being kept in an emergency accommodation in Zinj until she flies home on Friday.

"These people come to Bahrain because of an economic problem and they want to earn money," Mr Phrombubpha told the GDN.

"People recruit them by any m…

Ban Or Legalize Prostitution In Kyrgyzstan

It was midnight and I was coming back from the party, the celebration of my sister's birthday. I needed to buy some water. Asked the taxi driver to stop on the crossing of Sovietskaya and Toktogula street. What I saw absolutely shocked me.

I never witnessed it from such a close distance. A bunch of extremely young girls in revealing, short dresses and excessive make-up gathered in front of an internet cafe "Alfa" and were having vulgar chats and selling themselves in the sex trade.

The whole situation reminded me of one young girl who once came from a small and remote village to the capital in the search of a better life. She was so young and unexperienced in life that she did not notice that one day the profession she had was the 'oldest profession' as it has been dubbed.

But she never considered herself as a prostitute, or a sex-worker. She said it perfectly suits her as she likes her way of life. Her parents have no suspicion about their daughter's way of ea…

Woman Charged For Sodomising Lover

A Perth woman will go to trial next year accused of handcuffing her soldier lover to a chair and sodomising him with a sex toy in an alleged hour-long sex attack. Nicola Clunies-Ross, 19, allegedly lured the Darwin-based soldier, also 19, to her East Perth home on October 28, 2006 and tricked him into being handcuffed and tied to a chair. Once he was secured, her soldier boyfriend, Peter Justin Gurdulic, 19, allegedly appeared and bashed her lover. Clunies-Ross and Gurdulic then allegedly both penetrated the soldier with a sex toy during an hour-long attack. Clunies-Ross has pleaded not guilty in the West Australian District Court to assault occasioning bodily harm, aggravated sexual penetration without consent and deprivation of liberty. She was granted bail. The court set down January 21 for her trial. Gurdulic, who was from the same Darwin regiment as the victim, was found dead at Leeuwin Barracks in November 2006 after being charged over the alleged attack. There were no suspicious circu…

Airline Stewardess Delivers Premature Baby Mid-Air

An airline stewardess helped deliver a premature baby during a flight from England to Crete. Flight supervisor Carol Miller helped Nicola Delemere give birth to her son, Alfie, in her seat while receiving instructions from doctors on the ground. But when the tiny baby had problems breathing, Miller had to use a drinking straw to help inflate his lungs to keep him alive. She also carried out mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and heart massage for more than half an hour on Alfie, who arrived 15 weeks early. "He was born very quickly and at first we weren't sure he was breathing so I just applied my medical training, cleared his lungs gently using the straw and then carried out mouth-to-mouth resuscitation," Miller told The Daily Telegraph. "We were also lucky to have the support of a retired nurse and ambulance driver on board." Delemere, 31, had been checked by a doctor before deciding to go on holiday with her husband in Crete. Her waters broke while the First Choice Airwa…

Pregnant Nicole Richie Checks In And Out Of Jail

A pregnant Nicole Richie checked into a Los Angeles jail today to serve a 96-hour sentence for drink-driving, and was released after 70 minutes. Entertainment Tonight reported that Richie was booked at the county jail for women in Lynwood shortly after 3pm (8am AEST) and was released after serving an hour and ten minutes

"If she is processed into the Los Angeles County jail system, Ms Richie will be handled like any other inmate with a similar sentence of 96 hours," the L.A. County Sheriff's Department said in a press release.

"At this time, the criteria for a female arrestee sentenced to 30-days or less for a non-violent offense is as follows: the arrestee is booked, screened and usually released within 12 hours," the press release said.

"This procedure is based on jail overcrowding to manage population levels mandated by Federal Court guidelines. Based on the mandated guidelines and Ms Richie's 96 hours sentence, she will be treated in the same manner as…

Lindsay Lohan Escaped Felony Charges In DUI Cases

Lindsay Lohan dodged felony charges in her two drunken-driving cases, with prosecutors filing misdemeanor counts after tests found she possessed insufficient amounts of cocaine, authorities announced Thursday.

The actress was charged with seven counts, including two counts each of driving under the influence, driving with blood alcohol of over .08 percent, being under the influence of cocaine, as well as reckless driving, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office says.

By avoiding felony charges, Lohan faces a maximum penalty of days – rather than years – behind bars. If convicted of the two DUIs, she faces a mandatory sentence of at least four days in jail. However, her attorney could successfully argue for more rehab in lieu of jail time.

The charges stem from two separate DUI incidents, one in May in Beverly Hills and one in July in Santa Monica.

In both incidents, police found Lohan in possession of cocaine. But in each case, the amounts tested were below the .05 grams req…

pregnant Foxy Brown Heads Back To Jail

Foxy Brown has been ordered to jail for violating her probation, police said Thursday

Brown (real name: Inga Marchand), 27, was remanded to state custody and ordered to jail by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson after two recent brushes with the law, the Associated Press reports. Brown has been ordered to remain jailed until a hearing on Sept. 5.

Last week, Brown surrendered to police on charges that she assaulted her Brooklyn neighbor with her BlackBerry device.

Then, just one day after her surrender, police in Mahwah, N.J., pulled the rapper over after she was spotted talking on her cell phone while driving her 2007 Land Rover.

Officers cited her for talking on the phone and failing to stop at a stop sign.

In addition, Brown gave police officers a false birth date and a variation of her name. Forced to admit her real identity, police reportedly learned that the musician was driving with a suspended license, the Associated Press reported.

Her Land Rover's registration also …

Paris Hilton Vs Zeta Graff Lawsuit Settled

It appears Paris Hilton’s pockets are about to get a whole lot lighter.

Paris has settled her defamation lawsuit with fellow socialite Zeta Graff, according to the Santa Monica County court clerk, although the official paperwork has yet to reach Superior Court.

Lawyers for both parties were in a Santa Monica court this morning, and ended up settling the case.

And while the court calendar indicated jury selection process is still scheduled to begin on Monday, that presumably will no longer be needed.

Details of the settlement are unknown at this time.

The attorneys for Paris and Zeta released the following joint statement to Access Hollywood:

“Zeta Graff and Paris Hilton are pleased to announce the amicable resolution of the lawsuit between them. Both parties are glad that the matter could be resolved without the time and expense of a trial. The resolution is confidential and no one will comment further.”

Graff had filed a $10 million suit against Paris in 2005, claiming Paris fed a slanderou…

Did Exposure To Asbestos Kill Maureen Bell?

They were only meant to be short-term jobs to help save for family holidays. But Maureen Bell's relations believe in just two years she was exposed to the cancer-causing asbestos which eventually killed her.

And now her family are fighting to find out how the much-loved gran-of-two, from Houghton, died.
