Lindsay Lohan Goes to Jail

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to four months jail by a LA judge on Friday, April 22 for having violated the terms of her probation in a 2007 DUI case by stealing a necklace worth $2,500.

Additionally, she was sentenced to 480 hours of community service.

The troubled star has been allowed to post bail of $75,000 and appeal against the sentence; she is currently being processed at the Lynwood Correctional Facility and is likely to be released Friday night.

This is the fourth time Lindsay has been ordered to jail.

Lindsay's trial for theft will start May 11.

Lauren Graham Writing Novel

Parenthood’s Lauren Graham is writing a novel.

As some celebs are busy putting the finishing touches on their tell-alls, the quirky actress of Gilmore Girls fame has sold publishing rights to her debut novel to Random House, Entertainment Weekly spilled on Tuesday. The semi-autobiographical You’ll Never Make It — the story of an aspiring actress who “waits tables as she hopes for [her] big break” in mid-nineties New York — is expected to hit booksellers’ shelves next year.

Demi Lovato Bipolar

Demi Lovato has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, in addition to her issues with bulimia, anorexia, and self-mutilation.

The former star of Disney’s Sonny With a Chance made the admission to ABC News Robin Roberts in her first televised interview since completing a three-month stint at a rehab facility in Illinois.

“I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar. Looking back it makes sense. There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I’d be up until 05.30 in the morning. I feel like I am in control now where my whole life wasn’t in control,” the singer/actress, 18, tells PEOPLE.

The teen star is now dedicated to helping others. Demi recently revealed she felt “proud” of Welsh Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones, who also recently underwent treatment for Bipolar II disorder.

“I don’t know Catherine Zeta-Jones personally but what she has decided to do it SO brave.. And SO difficult but worth it… I’m proud of her (sic),” she wrote on Twitter last week.

See the entire interview with Demi on 20/20, airing this Friday @ 10 PM on ABC.

Khloe Kardashian “Law & Order: Los Angeles” Cameo April 25

Look out for socialite reality star Khloe Kardashian on the April 25 episode of NBC’s ratings-challenged crime drama Law & Order: Los Angeles.

Playing herself, Mrs. Lamar Odom will face some stiff questioning from homicide detectives Morales (Alfred Molina) and Jaruszalski (Corey Stoll) as they investigate the suspicious death of her celebrity stylist.

“I’m sooooo excited but also ridiculously nervous. I’ve only done the whole acting thing once so I’m still not fully comfortable working from a script,” an ecstatic Khloe, 26, wrote in a posting to her blog Wednesday. “‘Law and Order’ is actually Lamar’s favorite show – I think he’s more excited than I am,” she confessed.

Law & Order airs Monday nights at 10 PM ET/PT on NBC.

Let’s hope Khloe’s small screen acting tour goes over better than big sister Kourtney’s most recent one! Just last month, the eldest of The Sisters Kardashian became the object of online ridicule when she guest starred as a tough-talking Llanview attorney on the recently cancelled sudster One Life to Live.

“The Bachelor” Brad Womack Emily Maynard Split

Woe is love! It’s another bustup for ABC’s The Bachelor franchise as Texas bar owner Brad Womack and former Final Rose recipient Emily Maynard have reportedly called it quits.

The last time we saw the pair, it was mid-March and Brad — whose first stint on the dating reality show ended with him snubbing two potential fiancees — was on bended knee proposing to Emily, a single mother of one. Giddy, she accepted; but things have been anything but smooth sailing since, celebrity tattles squeal. The couple previously admitted that they broke up after filming the show’s finale. At the heart of their issues, according to Emily, was her hesitation to marry Womack due to his controlling temper, the long distance between them, and fears that Brad would cheat on her.

Tipsters-in-the-know now tell OK! Magazine that Emily has given her three-carat engagement ring back to Brad while Life & Style says she told Brad on April 9 that the relationship is over, for good this time. It seems that Emily felt pressured to move to Dallas with her 5-year-old daughter and to conform to Brad’s lifestyle.

“She finally gave up and refused. She said, ‘I want my life back,” an insider close to Maynard tells OK!

According to Life & Style’s snitch, Maynard split with Brad because of his “hurtful and erratic behavior.”

“Brad seemed very complacent all of a sudden. He did everything he could to woo and charm Emily on the show, and then it just slowed. Emily knows he likes Texas, he likes his bars and booze, so she’s just wondering if he likes someone else. It started to really worry Emily. She felt like, ‘If he’s not wanting to see her, who is he with?’”

Snooki Weight Loss

The Snookster’s getting skinny. The pint sized Jersey Shore reality star is slimming down ahead of the start of the fourth season of her hit MTV series, which begins production in Italy next month. Snooks was photographed sporting a curvy frame just a few months ago. She took to recently Twitter to show off pictures of her slim new look.

“Water is my new best friend. #dieting… As everyones planning their night at the club, I’m wondering when Golds closes lol. #motivated,” the 4-foot-9-incher Tweeted last week. “Ready for Summaaa!!!” she later added.

Snooki said pictures of her posing in a white string bikini, complete with a flat and toned belly, back in 2009 were her “motivation” to work out and shed some of the weight she’s gained since finding fame on MTV’s Jersey Shore.

“I got a trainer and I’ve been training with him for about a month now,” the pint-sized partyer told Ryan Seacrest in January. “I think my New Year’s resolution is definitely to keep up with the training. My number one [resolution] is definitely to keep up with my training and keep losing weight and getting toned. I try to eat healthy. I just have to quit the drinking so much. If I do drink, it’s going to be, like, vodka and seltzer … maybe like two or three.”‘

Lady Gaga Sorry For Calling Madonna Comparisions “Retarded”

Lady Gaga is “sorry” that she used the antiquated term “retarded” when blasting critics who believe her pop tunes and stage act are nothing more than Canal Street rip-offs largely inspired by Pop Queen Madonna’s ’80s heyday.

Gaga has apologized for using the word in a new interview with a British music mag. In what is fast becoming the most famous interview NME has ever done, Gaga wept as she revealed the allegations her track “Born This Way” sounded suspiciously like Madonna’s “Express Yourself” were heartbreaking.

“I am not stupid enough to put out a record and be that moronic… I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a (copied) song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded. What a completely ridiculous thing to even question me about,” Gaga cried.

But never one to STOP talking, the one-woman-hit-factory went on to suggest God had a part in unleashing lyrics that include: “Don’t be a drag, just be a queen.”

The expression “Chile Puhleeze” springs to mind.

“I feel like honestly that God sent me those lyrics and that melody. When you feel a message to give to the world and people are shooting arrows at it… there’s no way for something that pure to be wrong.”

In a statement to Thursday, the pop hitmaker stood be her comments, but apologized for “not speaking thoughtfully” regarding use of the expression “retarded.”

“I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance. My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional. An honest mistake, requires honesty to make,” she said. “Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.”

Jennifer Lopez Leaving “American Idol” To Judge Latin Talent Show

What does the future hold for American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez? The Bronx-born superstar, recently voted PEOPLE Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person, has inked a new deal with Idol creator and executive producer Simon Fuller and his company, XIX Entertainment, to launch yet another musical talent competition -– this one targeting folks South of the Border.

The proposed series, tentatively titled Que Viva, will feature Lopez and her husband, salsa singer Marc Anthony, searching for undiscovered talent in Latin America, The Hollywood Reporter said Thursday. Lopez joined Idol as a celebrity judge, alongside Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, this season, but it’s unclear what the news means for her future with the show. Her contract covers just one season and it’s unclear whether or not “Jenny from the Block” will return for the show’s 11th season after next month’s finale.

“I don’t know if I will do another season. I’m taking it day by day at the moment, and we’ll see what happens.”

Rihanna Becomes Youngest Artist To Score 10 No. 1 Hits

Rihanna’s oversexed hit “S&M” topped the Billboard Hot 100 this week — and helped the Barbadian-born pop star set a number of records in the process.

At the ripe old age of 23, the islander born Robyn Fenty has became the youngest artist to collect ten No. 1 singles. The achievement also marks the shortest span between an solo artist’s first No. 1 single to the tenth, with a stretch of 4 years, 11 months and 2 weeks. She beat out Mariah Carey by two years. According to Billboard, the bombshell from Barbados trails only The Beatles and Diana Ross’ The Supremes for the title of fastest artist to accumuate 10 No. 1s.

“10th!!!!!Now LOOK at what u did,” the stoked star wrote on her Twitter account. “THANK U so much, this is the BEST news!U guys #werk hard #whosyadaddy.”

“S&M” is the third single off of Loud, Rihanna’s fifth album and is her third consecutive song to take the No. 1 spot after “Only Girl” and “What’s My Name?”

How many of RiRi’s No. 1s can you name without looking? Let’s start with the one that started it all. “SOS” became Ri’s first No. 1 single when it rocketed to the top of the charts in 2006.

Pauly D Makes $40K A Night Spinning At Palms Las Vegas

And in other news that’ll make you regret spending four years slaving away for a Bachelor’s Degree: Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D rakes in about $40,000 a night playing obnoxious techno music at the Palms Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Already one of the most in-demand spinners on the Planet, Pauly’s stock has only risen since Palms’ owner George Maloof signed him as the resort’s resident DJ last month, those in-the-know tell Life & Style Weekly.

“That alone commands up to $40,000 per set, and he does three to six gigs per week…”

The MTV reality star, who will premiere his own Shore-inspired spinoff in 2012, also brings in the dough from various other outlets— his six-figure per episode salary for Jersey Shore, publicity stunts, and endorsement deals with brands like Baskin Robbins and Miracle Whip. At this pace, Pauly’s earning more than half a million dollars a month, according to estimates.

“He makes at least $500,000 a month,” the snitch yaps.

Pauly’s reportedly in talks with rap mogul 50 Cent to ink a three album deal with the rapper’s G-Unit recording label. He’s even in the running to make a guest appearance on pop princess Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale Summer Tour, featuring femcee Nicki Minaj.

Riya Sen and cricketer S Sreesanth

There’s been buzz inB-Town about starlet Riya Sen and cricketer S Sreesanth, and the amount of time they spend with each other. Broach the topic with Sreesanth, and hesays he has plans to get married, but denies any kind of romantic dalliance.“I am not seeing Riya Sen. There is no romance between us. We have hung around together and I enjoy her company, but only as a friend,” says Sreesanth, who didn’t have an impressive bowling figure at the World Cup finals.

Let us see what S Sreesanth has to say about the Tamil actress Lakshmi Roy as he is seen having a cosy time with her.

There’s been buzz inB-Town about starlet Riya Sen and cricketer Sreesanth S S, and the amount of time they spend with e

The fast bowler, however, reveals that his family is searching for a bride for him to get married. “I’ve had enough of gossip about me — be it in Bollywood or Kollywood. My family is of the opinion that I should get married now and they are looking for a match for me,” says Sree (as he’s known among his friends).

Sreesanth admits he has agreed to an arranged marriage after much thought.

“You know how conservative South Indian families are. They don’t want me to wait too long and stay single. My parents keep pressurising me about marriage, so I thought that it’s best to just give in than fight it,” he says.

But isn’t it very unromantic for a flamboyant character like him get married to somebody he doesn’t know?

“Who says that I can’t be romantic with the girl?But right now, I want to concentrate on my game. Now that we have won the World Cup, the onus is on us to keep up the standard. So I don’t really think hard about how parents are going about my marriage right now,” he ends.

Lindsay Lohan To Play Junior Gotti’s Wife

Lindsay Lohan is joining the big screen Gotti family as the wife of John Gotti Jr in a biopic of one of New York’s most infamous families.

She called her casting in Gotti: Three Generations a huge honor and told The Associated Press that the film is an opportunity to prove herself as an actress again.

“I’m really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do,” Lohan said.

John Travolta has been cast to play John Gotti Sr, the mob family’s patriarch who had a flair for style and a knack for avoiding convictions that earned him the name “Teflon Don.” Joe Pesci will play one of his deputies.

The younger Gotti has insisted he left the mob life in the 1990s, but has been unsuccessfully tried four times on racketeering charges.

He sold the rights to his life story to Fiore Films, which is developing the film focusing on Junior Gotti’s relationship with his father. It will be shot in New York and is set for a 2012 release.

Lohan made a surprise appearance at a press conference last week and was expected to be in the running to play the elder Gotti’s daughter, Victoria. By Wednesday discussions for Lohan playing that role had ended, but the actress successfully lobbied to remain on the project.

“I think it’s such an iconic story,” Lohan told the AP. “I think it’s a great story to be told. I’m honored to be working with John Travolta and Joe Pesci.”

Lohan’s role as Kim Gotti has parallels to her own life, she said.

“You don’t get to see the heart behind the story and the real side of people,” she said of most mob movies, which she said veer toward shoot-’em-up fare. “I can relate to that because I think that I’ve been portrayed in a certain light. I just want to do my best to show what their family really went through.”

Like the Gotti family, Lohan is no stranger to criminal troubles. She faces a felony grand theft case in Los Angeles after a jewellery store accused her of stealing a $2,500 necklace, and is due in court for a hearing on Friday.

She has rejected two plea deals in that case with guaranteed jail time, and could be incarcerated for violating her probation on a 2007 drunken driving case.

She said her legal troubles won’t be a distraction.

“I think in the past, I had a lot of distractions,” she said. “I’ve learned a lot. I’ve lived a lot. When I’m on set, it’s about the film.”

Fiore Films is making a commitment to Lohan, who is a former Disney child star and once headlined films, but for nearly four years has been known more for making the tabloids than acting.

In addition to the Gotti project, Lohan will also appear in “Mob Street,” a movie based on a screenplay by Chazz Palminteri. “We’re very pleased to have Lindsay on-board for both of these films,” said Marc Fiore, who is executive producer of the Gotti film. “She has been very enthusiastic about the Gotti project, and after resuming discussions with her, we were impressed by her commitment to the film and felt she would be the perfect Kim Gotti.”

Lohan also said she is excited about filming in her native New York.

“The energy of filming there – it just brings so much more life to the film,” she said.

Amanda Seyfried says kissing Justin Timberlake was easy

“It was pretty good kissing him. Kissing somebody on film can sometimes be a bit of work, but he was so easy,” she said.

I am like perfectionist Lennon: Lady Gaga

Pop singer Lady Gaga has likened herself to Beatles legend John Lennon because she too is “perpetually unhappy” with her finished products.

The “Bad Romance” hitmaker admits she struggles with such strong bouts of perfectionism that she finds it almost impossible to be satisfied with the final outcome of her songs – just like the late Beatles star, reports

“I am perpetually unhappy with what I create. Even though I might tell you that song `Edge Of Glory` is a pop masterpiece, when it`s all said and finished there will be things I dread, and every time I listen to it I`ll hear them,” she said.

“In John Lennon`s Playboy magazine interview he had talked about how he hated certain songs because of the way they were finished. And they might be my favourite songs, but Lennon couldn`tlisten to them,” she added.

Angelina Jolie Signs on as Face of Louis Vuitton for $10 Million

Angelina Jolie Signs on as Face

Angelina Jolie will feature in a worldwide print ad campaign for French fashion designer Louis Vuitton this summer.

A source tells E! Online that Jolie will be paid "close to $10 million" for the deal, the highest she has ever been paid for an endorsement.

Louis Vuitton generally advertises in high end magazines and billboards in cosmopolitan cities. In the past it has used Jennifer Lopez and Madonna in its advertisement campaigns.

Jolie was earlier the face of US luxury knitwear St. John from 2005 to 2008. When the brand launched its spring 2010 print advertising campaign with 30-year-old British model Karen Elson, St. John chief executive Glenn McMahon reportedly told Women's Wear Daily that Jolie "overshadowed the brand. We wanted to make a clean break from actresses and steer away from blondes and cleanse the palette."

Jolie recently launched a jewelry line , The Style of Jolie, in collaboration with jewelry designer Robert Procop.

Profits from sales of the jewelry will go to the charity Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.

Demi Lovato Bullied for Being Fat

Demi Lovato
The 18-year-old three Teen Choice Awards winner has been discovering a lot about herself in the last half-year, what with her applying for medical treatment, reassessing her attitude towards everything in her life – and discussing her emotional issues openly before the world.

The story of her struggle with herself was told in a March interview to PEOPLE given at her home near Los Angeles.

Demi Lovato had been having bouts of depression long before her cutting incidents and eating disorders made her enter a rehabilitation center last November cutting short her participation in the Jonas Brothers tour. There she was treated for anorexia and bulimia and learned that her inability to keep her emotions and actions under control was due to bipolar disorder. This knowledge helped her gain some control over what had been unbridled behavior all her previous life.

Commenting her diagnosis, the Here We Go Again singer said it made sense because there were times she felt “so manic” – “I was writing seven songs in one night and I’d be up until 5:30 in the morning.”

Now, with her dark years behind her, Lovato feels free to discuss her issues bravely – and help others to fight their inner battles as well.

Kareena’s obsessive lover at her Door steps

After all everyone is not so fortunate to have such obsessive fan or I should say lover,obviously only Kareena has the world at her feet hmm..I mean at her door steps. Well, Saif please take care of Beboo before someone else give you a tough competion and your tattoo also doesn’t help..sob………..

An obsessed fan of hers is following her around, it all started with unknown letters being delivered at her doorstep, which were junked as fan mail, but then came the first expensive gift — a diamond-studded necklace (that probably went to charity). Soon, many more expensive gifts and cards began to land up at her Khar residence in a similar manner.

The letters that came along in the last six months clearly point to the fact that the person is following Kapoor around. And the actress’s close friends insist that there is a striking pattern to this.
“It is evident from the letters that this fan is keeping a careful tab on her… what she is doing, where she is going for appearances, where she is shooting for her films and so on. Though Kareena is not too scared about this obsessive person, her whole family is,” .

According to Kapoor, receiving fan mails from all over the world is nothing new, but somebody keeping a tab on her movements is something that has not happened to her before.

“The letters that she has received also speaks about some kind of obsession with her. The gifts that have arrived at her doorstep are so expensive that normal fans wouldn’t even think of gifting such items,” the source adds. However, when somebody suggested that she at least inform the police, Bebo apparently declined saying that she wouldn’t go to the law unless things get out of hand.

When DNA got in touch with Kapoor, she admitted that she has lately been receiving a lot of ‘admiration’ from her fans, but said that she is okay with it as long as it stays within the parameters of adulation. “Yes, recently I have seen quite a number of fans. It’s always a good feeling to find that you have such ardent fans. I am humbled and very flattered,” she says.

But what about the fact that some of her fans were showing signs of obsessive fixation with her and stalking her at events and public appearances? “I think it’s love and admiration and, as long as it is within limits, I am okay with this kind of obsession,” Kapoor adds.

Demi Lovato Developed Eating Disorder At 8; Began Cutting At 11

Demi Lovato, 18, was just eight years old when she developed “an unhealthy relationship with food” that later developed into a fixation with “cutting” and other forms of self-mutilation, the ex-child star confesses in an interview with Robin Roberts airing Friday on Good Morning America and 20/20.

After an emotional breakdown last fall, Demi signed up for a three month stint in a Illinois residential treatment facility. It was there that the Disney star came face-to-face with the eating disorder that began after on the heels of relentless bullying that eventually prompted Lovato’s parents to remove her from school and hire a tutor.

“I’ve spoken openly about being bullied throughout the past few years, but one thing that I’ve never been able to feel comfortable talking about was the effects that it had on my life, afterwards,” Lovato tells Roberts. “I literally didn’t know why they were being so mean to me. And when I would ask them why, they would just say, `Well, you’re fat.’”

Of cutting, Demi explains: “I was compulsively overeating when I was eight years old. So, I guess, for the past 10 years I’ve had a really unhealthy relationship with food. It was a way of expressing my own shame, of myself, on my own body. I was matching the inside to the outside. And there were some times where my emotions were just so built up, I didn’t know what to do. The only way I could get that instant gratification was through an immediate release on myself.”

Now out of therapy, Demi’s decided to turn her focus to finding success on the pop charts. And that means her days as Disney’s Sonny with a Chance are dunzo. On Tuesday, Lovato announced that she is leaving the popular comedy.

“It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music. It’s kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn’t be a better time for me to move on,” Lovato says. “I don’t think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery. Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.”

The Disney Channel will revamp Sonny into a sketch comedy series, titled So Random. The new show is set for premiere in June.

Lady Gaga Wears Nothing But Zippers On Cover Of NME

Lady Gaga Wears Nothing But Zippers

Lady Gaga has spent the majority of her career finding new ways to wear nothing – so it’s no surprise that the only thing covering her bits on her latest magazine cover are some strategically-placed zippers.

Looking a bit lizard-y on the cover of NME Magazine, Gaga launches into an uncharacteristic rants about know nobody “gets” her.

Somebody grab some Kleenex.

“Let me tell you something. If you fucking rip my hairbow and my wig off my fucking head, my shoes, my bra, every single thing on my body, and you throw me on a piano with a microphone, I will fucking make you cry,” Gaga fumes. “I feel I have been probed endlessly about who the fucking I am. I have been quite open about it. And still nobody seems to have a clue.”

The “Judas” singer also complained that despite her kooky songwriter persona, producers still try to send her boring, predictable pop tracks to sing.

“I’m not going to start churning out what you expect. If you’re looking for me to be something that isn’t there, STOP LOOKING. I am not that. I am not created. If you want me to be a manufactured act, you can fuck off.”

Shayne Lamas Pregnant

Shayne Lamas Pregnant

Shayne Lamas — the celebuspawn who accepted a marriage proposal from a British hunk on ABC’s The Bachelor: London Calling three years ago — is with child

Rebecca Black Death Threats

The “hatas” are trying to take down Rebecca Black! Police in Anaheim, CA are investigating two separate death threats made against the “Friday” singer — one made by phone, another by e-mail — earlier this month.

Black, 13, became an celebrity overnight when the video from her nightmarish debut single, went viral last month. “Friday’s” been viewed more than 100 million times on YouTube and that number is growing by the minute. Waning lyrics, such as “Yesterday was Thursday / Today is Friday / We’re so excited … We gonna have a ball today / Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards. / I don’t want this weekend to end,” were enough to make Rebecca the victim of some pretty relentless cyberbullies.

But now a few Black naysayers have taken things a step too far.

“In essence, the threats were related to getting the music off the Internet or they were going to kill her,” Anaheim Police spokesperson Rick Martinez told Reuters Wednesday.

Authorities have not revealed the extent of the threats, which were reportedly sent to the production and management company that represents Black, but say the remarks are being taken “very seriously.”

Martinez said officers were “keeping an extra eye out” for Black as they investigate the messages. Though Investigators have not yet identified the person or persons behind the threats, but said they could face criminal charges.

“We’re going to investigate and determine, number one, the source of the comments and then based on the investigation determine what intent was and where we go from here,” Martinez added. “If we believe they were actually intended as threats we will work toward prosecution.”

Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Abhishek taking a romantic break

Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan
Buzz is that the two are planning to take off on a romantic week-long holiday soon after Ash returns from Cannes next month and before Abhishek launches into his next project.Actors Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan will be celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary today. And while work commitments will be keeping Bachchan Jr busy in Hyderabad for the early part of the day, He will be flying home tonight to celebrate the evening with wife Ash.

Incidentally, Abhishek may not be able to attend the international film festival with Ash this time around. “Abhishek will be shooting in Russia for Players. And the 15-day long schedule will make it impossible for him to be by Aishwarya’s side at the red carpet event.They are running on a very tight schedule as it is. But, let’s see, they are still trying to work out the dates,” said a source.

Surprisingly, Aishwarya on her part too has not been accompanying Abhi on any of his promotional activities. But an insider insists that it is not like she is upset about not getting any time with hubby. “It’s just that she feels that her presence will prove to be a distraction. She wants the entire focus to be on Abhishek’s film alone,” said another source.

As for spending most of the day today away from Aishwarya, Abhi says, “Both Aishwarya and I understand the nature of our work. For both of us family does come first, but work commitments cannot be compromised either. Besides, every day with Aishwarya is special anyway.” He does admit that being under constant public scanner does come with its own pressures, but ‘nothing that we can’t handle’. “We may be actors, but we are like any other normal couple too. We never let the lines blur,” he smiles.

Sila Sahin Turkish Model Poses Sexy for Playboy

Muslim model has upset her family by stripping for a series of saucy shots for Playboy.Until now, Sila Sahin, a 25-year-old Turkish German living in Berlin, had been regarded as a glowing example of how a modern Muslim girl should behave in a multicultural society.

A successful actress starring in German television soap opera Good Times, Bad Times, she pleased her many fans and made her Turkish family proud.

But her latest move has outraged her family and Muslim fans, reports the Daily Mail.

Posing provocatively on the cover of German Playboy magazine with one breast exposed, Sahin seems to be sending a clear and deliberate message to her conservative Turkish family. “I did it because I wanted to be free at last. These photographs are a liberation from the restrictions of my childhood,” she said.

Her family has, unsurprisingly, reacted with horror, and her mother has cut off all contact with the actress. “My mother is still angry. It will be even more difficult with my grandparents, my aunts and my uncles,” she said on the website devoted to her television soap.

She has, however, managed to talk to her actor father, who expressed concern over the pressure she will inevitably face from the Muslim community.Sahin’s declared intention was to use the controversial Playboy photoshoot as a call to action for other Turkish girls who suffer the effects of their strict backgrounds, where women’s choices are often limited, husbands are chosen for the girls and chastity closely controlled.

Her message to these girls?“For too long I tried to do everything right. I want these photos to show young Turkish women it’s okay for you to live however you choose,” she said.’Many of my countrymen think it’s great that I can be so free. With the shoot I hoped to say to them that we do not necessarily have to live under these rules given to us,” she added.

In what is undeniably a groundbreaking move, Sahin is the first Turkish woman ever to strip for the cover of Playboy. Indeed, in the 12-page article that accompanies the revealing photographs, Sahin says she feels ‘like Che Guevara’, adding that the semi-Sexy photo shoot was a bid to express her freedom.

‘My upbringing was conservative. I was always told, you must not go out, you must not make yourself look so attractive, you mustn’t have male friends,” she told Playboy. “I have always abided by what men say. As a result I developed an extreme desire for freedom. I feel like Che Guevara. I have to do everything I want, otherwise I feel like I may as well be dead,” she added.

But despite her bold move, Sahin wants her family forgiveness.”I hope you can forgive me. Please let me come home,” she said in an emotional TV interview.

Lizzy Jagger has Posed Sexy for Playboy

Lizzy Jagger Pics
Sir Mick Jagger and Texan model Jerry Hall’s eldest daughter Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Scarlett Jagger has posed Sexy in a photoshoot forPlayboy magazine, risking her father’s anger. Lizzy, 27, will feature in the May edition after her 19-year-old sister Georgia May stunned the fashion world by posing topless for a campaign to advertise the US jeans company Hudson.

A preview image from the shoot appears at the back of the current issue above the words: “Elizabeth Scarlett Jagger – She’s half supermodel, half rock and roll royalty and 100 percent smoking hot. The sultry beauty gives us satisfaction.”

Photos show her staring into the camera with her hair covering her breasts, in skimpy underwear and a matching garter belt. The publication will also be featuring a six-page Sexy pictorial. Her father, who is the lead vocalist of rock band The Rolling Stones, had been angry when she made an appearance in a London Fashion Week show in 2004 at the age of 20 wearing a see-through top.

He is also said to have been behind her decision to turn down a lucrative offer to pose for Playboy in 2005, when she was 21. But she recently said she regretted the decision not to do the Sexy shoot.

“I’m thinking I should do naked pictures before I have children. Still, if it’s quite sexual, you do have to have boundaries,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

Kimora Lee Simmons hits back at anorexia claims

Kimora Lee Simmons has rubbished reports that she ‘doesn’t eat’. The BabyPhat CEO recently lost 25lbs through portion control and was quoted by Pop Eater as saying that she doesn’t eat anymore. But the 35-year-old insisted that she was misquoted. Talking to StyleList, she explained, “That story quotes me as saying, ‘I don’t eat’. “Well, I had said, ‘I don’t eat bags of Doritos and cheeseburgers like I used to’, but the writer ended the quote at, ‘I don’t eat’. “That’s irresponsible reporting. It really upset me because it’s not at all my message, and I want people to know that. I’m first and foremost a mother and a wife, and I’m raising three kids, and I want them to grow up to have a healthy sense of self.” The journalist who wrote the article declined to comment, but Kimora said that when it comes to her weight, she can’t seem to win. “Six months ago, I was a size 10, and on CNN – CNN for God’s sake – all the news was about how they have to spend millions of dollars retouching ads to make me look thinner,” she said. “And now this other story is throwing sensational salt on me, saying that I’m anorexic.”

Halle Berry Back On Talking Terms With Ex-Beau

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, who was involved in a bitter custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, seems to be back on normal terms with Gabriel Aubry.

The former couple has decided to put their differences behind for the sake of their three-year-old daughter Nahla, reported Extra online.

“When there’s a child involved, it’s a relief when you can resolve things in a good way,” the 44-year-old actress said.

Berry, who is now dating French actor Olivier Martinez, said the court proceedings have gone well.

“Our issues were never about fighting for her. We both know a child needs both her parents. But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We needed a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I’m so happy we’ve arrived at that place because for her sake, this is the best way. We both love her more than life,” the actress added.

The couple split last April and then Aubry, a French-Canadian model, filed court papers on December 30 seeking formal recognition as Nahla’s father and joint legal and physical custody.

In January, Berry’s rep issued a statement saying, “Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time.”

A representative for Aubrey, 34, soon responded. “The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla,” the statement read.

Ajay Devgn Hunky and Hot Singham Cop

Ajay Devgn wows with rippling muscles and a beefed up body in a still from Reliance Entertainment's under production action thriller 'Singham,' a remake of Tamil film of the same name.

The 42-year-old star is seen stripped to his vest in police uniform, sporting a thick mustache and aviators. His gorgeous honey golden hair add just the right touch of glamor to his beefy look.

Elaborating on Ajay's looks, helmer Rohit Shetty says:

"We've tried to achieve for Ajay the physique of a man who could bash up 20 people, if he so wished. It's not a six-pack look. Anyone can achieve that with injections and steroids. The manliness has to come through as he plays a tough cop who is from a village on the Maharastra-Goa border. It is a raw action film filled with hand to hand combat scenes, something one rarely gets to see in movies in this day and age of high gadgetry. Ajay's trainer Prashant Sawant is putting him through the paces."

Trainer Prashant explains how he managed to get the right look for his celeb client.

"We trained for three months. Ajay plays a very tough cop. He needed to look the part by losing weight, developing more cuts on his body and appear more lean and muscular. After training for an hour and half, I oversaw his diet and made sure he maintained a high-protein low-carb diet every three hours. I then had him do a rigorous combination of weights and circuit super sets that incorporated all techniques including pushups and pull-ups."

When quizzed about the time it took for Ajay to build his physique, "It didn't take him much time. Ajay has a great body and he has always been a fitness freak. It's not difficult for him to maintain it", quipped the trainer.

South actress Kajal Aggarwal plays Ajay's love interest in the film.

Singham is due in theaters on July 22.
