Pregnant Kelis To Divorce Nas

Singer Kelis has filed for divorce from her rapper husband Nas, although she’s due to give birth to the couple’s son in just a couple months. The pair had been dating since 2002 and got married in 2005, and have collaborated on a number of tracks together. Citing irreconcilable differences in the divorce petition, Kelis’s rep asks that the “media respect her privacy during this very difficult time.”

The split has come as quite a surprise, as Nas only a few weeks ago was talking happily with MTV News about the impending baby. “She’s great, man. She’s doing good. [We are deciding between] a few baby names. It’s kinda hard. I’ve been thinking about kinda putting something online: ‘Choose his name,’” he said.

Dita To Enter Eurovision Song Contest

dita-von-teese

In an unusual career move, glamorpuss Dita Von Teese is to appear onstage with the German entry at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The burlesque star is to dance alongside the country’s entry, “Miss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” sung by a duo named Alex Swings Oscar Sings. The annual cheese-fest sees all European countries enter one song each to battle it out, and has become legendary for its kitsch style and lame tunes — so classy Dita has given Germany’s chance of winning a huge boost.

“Dita will put the vision back in the Contest and suddenly Germany are genuine contenders,” says  British bookmakers William Hill, while Dita herself told Germany’s Bild newspaper, “I hope we win!” We’ll report back with her performance on May 16… [Photo: Splash News Online]

Kate Moss Rocks A Hairy Shoulder

kate-moss-v-magazine-2

Fashion-wise, we know that for 2009, big hair is back, back, back. Big shoulders are back too. So what an insane inspired idea to combine the two in a never-seen-before fashion mash-up! Kate Moss models the new “hairy shoulders” that are sure to take off big on the cover of V magazine — and we can’t wait to see the Topshop version hit shelves soon! Hopefully they’ll come with their own brush and de-tangling conditioner to keep them in tip top shape. Let’s also hope that they don’t frizz up if you’re caught out in the rain. Brilliant. Ahem.

Natalie: Too Good For Endorsement Deals

Natalie Portman

Even in this crappy economy, Natalie Portman will not do anything for a buck, unlike many of her very famous colleagues. The actress is speaking out against those lucrative endorsement deals so many celebs embrace (Cover Girls, she’s talking to you!), and she’s got some harsh words for those stars out there tryin’ to make a buck or two (million):

“I don’t have a problem with making money, but I don’t believe in doing something you don’t believe in to make money,” says the vegetarian actress. “Like a makeup campaign or something like that – the opportunities that young actors have all the time.”

So starring in one of the biggest movie empires of all time and schilling your vegan shoe line is okay, but selling soda is taboo? Not quite sure we get your logic, Nat, but keep speakin’ your mind while your pals get rich!  [Photo: GettyImages]

Britney’s Battle With Lutfi Isn’t Over

Sam Lutfi won’t let some three-year restraining order keep him from playing Captain Save-A-Brit to the public. The former manager of Britney Spears has announced he’s going to appeal Tuesday’s verdict. According to his lawyer, Lutfi’s no drug-dealing vulture—just a good Samaritan trying to help an old friend.

“Never before in the history of the world has a restraining order been granted as a result of someone answering someone else’s cries for help,” Lutfi’s lawyer told TMZ. “The evidence showed it was Britney Spears reaching out to Mr. Lutfi and all he did was help her get a lawyer.” So far the court hasn’t bought his line—what ace does he have up his sleeve now?

Did you know that fashion has a habit of taking queues from disease? In the 17th century, wigs became all the rage after some crafty person discovered they hid putrid syphilis sores. It’s also thought that the long-flowing dresses of Medieval women helped them sweep diseases into their own homes, prompting a 13th century pope to ban them.

Now we face the Swine Flu, and we’re starting to see surgical masks pop up around the globe. Although they’re theoretically effective, let’s face it – masks aren’t too chic. Not to worry. We’ve done the research and assembled 30 creative ways to stay flu-free in style, from Michael Jackson to Speidi to runway fashion.
