Rod Stewart Shares TMI About Baby-Making


What is it with this aging baby-boomer rock stars and not being able to keep it in their trousers? Not only have we been subjected to the hideous sight of now-divorced Ronnie Wood stepping out with his infant girlfriend, Rod Stewart keeps letting us know that he’s still at it.

We already know that Rod has promised his wife Penny Lancaster one more baby (bringing his tally up to eight), but really, do we need you to explain, “Yes, we’re trying – we actually tried last night!” live on British TV ? NO WE DO NOT. Ew and ew again. [Photo: FilmMagic]


Nobody Hustles Mimi Away From Her Camera!

Nobdy, do you hear? We can’t quite work out what the grey-haired bloke is trying to do with Mariah Carey in this shot of her outside her London hotel. Maybe he’s a minder trying to whisk her past her beloved media into the building. Maybe he’s just some random who’s trying to get out of the way of this attention-seeking diva. But she is fighting with every little fiber of her fabulous being to keep that camera lovin’ going on a little while longer. We love you for it!


Victoria Beckham’s Son Is Junior Fashionista


Victoria Beckham may not (yet) have a daughter to pass down her incredible wardrobe to, but it looks like it doesn’t matter – as her middle son Romeo is fast showing a style aptitude like his mom. Declaring the oft-overlooked (by the media, OK, we’re not suggesting his parents forget he exists) middle son as “so into fashion,” VB explains how he differs from elder brother Brooklyn and youngest sib Cruz.

“The other boys are all about going to the beach. He’s not interested. He’s like, ‘I want to go to work with Mummy,’ and he sits there going through the collection, feeling the fabrics, giving his opinion. He loves it,” she tells UK Harper’s Bazaar. At the current precocious development rate for celeb kids, we expect Romeo to have his first fashion line in, oooh, the next three years. [Photo: AFP]


Madonna Targeted By Pranksters In Brazil, Signs New Fashion Deal


We may have been getting all overexcited about a potential meeting between Jesus Luz’s mum and Madonna, put she’s made good on her word that her trip to Brazil was “strictly for fundraising and humanitarian purposes.” Madonna made a trip to the Caso de Saber, a children’s charity in Sao Paolo, when she was targeted by pranksters from a local TV show.  They threw a t-shirt at her – but it missed and we have no idea what it said. Uh, “hilarious,” we’re sure.

But what we can look forward to is more crotch-baring fashion shots from the evergreen icon. She’s signed up to be the new face of Dolce & Gabbana for their new campaign. They might have Scarlett Johansson vamping it up in their other campaigns, but at 51, no-one’s still fresher than her Madgesty. [Photo:  Splash News Online]


Harry Potter And The “Huge Spliff”

OMG! In a huge “scandal,” Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has allegedly been revealed as a totally normal young adult a drug-taking heathen.  The Mirror claims that Daniel was at a party at a high-rise flat in Camden (how very Amy Winehouse) when he was spotted smoking spliffs and going around saying “I love weed.” Aww.

“He looked spaced out and didn’t look like he knew what was going on,” guest Wadia Tazi told the paper, as Daniel had a “comedy” mustache drawn on his face. Double awww. Hardly the dark drug stuff of Amy legend, but maybe we should introduce him to Joss Stone in the meanwhile? They’ve obviously got quite a lot in common.


Rolling Stone Ronnie Gets Divorced

Ronnie Wood is now free to marry as many teenage Russian cocktail waitresses as he likes! The Rolling Stone has been divorced by his long-suffering wife Jo, after running off with Ekaterina Ivanova last summer.

Since then, Jo’s developed a new lease of life, becoming a regular on the London party scene and appearing on “Strictly Come Dancing”. Ronnie, meanwhile, has had drunken public rows with his new girlfriend and looked like an old man out walking with his granddaughter. Shiver.


Britney And Kids Couldn’t Look More Adorable


Britney Spears has a lip-syncing scandal? What lip-syncing scandal? Frankly, we couldn’t care even if BritneySpears uses a robot to do all her dance routines on stage, too, when we see unbelieveably cute photos like this. Brit-Brit and her hot agent boyfriend Jason Trawick carried her two gorgeous sleeping boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James, to her concert in Melbourne, Australia and looked like the most perfectly photogenic family in the process. Off the cuteness scale! [Photo: Splash News Online]


Russell And Katy Record Poem Together

Russell Brand and Katy Perry are apparently so loved up that they’ve already started to record together. Yep, the latest it pair have laid down a sexy track already – if you count a taping of a famous “nonsense” English poem together. WTF?

The couple were reportedly at the Sunset sound studios in LA when they began reciting Edward Lear‘s poem “The Owl And The Pussycat” to each other. “It transpired the poem is a private joke between the couple. Russell apparently recited it to Katy during their Thailand holiday and they often use the nicknames Owl and Pussycat. Russell is ‘Owl’ because he’s wise and, well, it’s fairly obvious that Katy’s a sex kitten, isn’t it?” reports the Sun.

We just pray this doesn’t lead to a public release – we have a very low cringe factor when it comes to PDA couple stuff on record. Seriously, “I Got You Babe” brings us out in hives.


Gisele Gets Bumptastic


Woo-hoo, Gisele Bundchen has finally developed a baby bump! After announcing her pregnancy several years (oh, all right a few months ago, but we’re impatient sorts) we’ve been excited to see her lovely bumpage, which so far has been airbrushed away into oblivion by over-eager advertisers. But the Brazilian uberbabe looked glowing, gorgeous and definitely blooming while stepping out with her flying instructor Stuart Matsumo in Boston. The genetically-blessed baby is due next month, but we can’t see any sign of the active mama slowing down just yet.  [Photo: Splash News Online]


Mike Tyson Arrested After “Punching Paparazzo”


Former boxer Mike Tyson has been arrested after a scuffle at LAX where he allegedly “struck” a paparazzo. The injured man, who’s not so far been named, was taken to hospital after Tyson reportedly punched him in the face. However, Tyson’s rep Tammy Brook says the photog “attacked” him first, and he was only trying to protect his ten-month-old baby.

“There’s a lot of different versions to the story. That’s all going to come out later. But, in this particular case, both individuals are going to be pressing charges for battery,” says Sergeant Jim Holcomb. Tyson – who lost four-year-old daughter Exodus in a tragic accident earlier this year – was later released from an airport holding cell. [Photo: Splash News Online]
