February 22, 2010 09:53:20 GMT


Ewan McGregor is keen to pen an autobiography - but is convinced his life story is "too boring" to open up about. The "Trainspotting" star was inspired to write a book about his life while starring in "The Ghost Writer", about a writer hired to create the memoirs of a former U.K. prime minister.

But when McGregor considered starting the tome, he realized he didn't have enough interesting anecdotes to compile an entire book. He says, "I wouldn't really have anything to talk about. It would be boring! Maybe I can have some dirty little secrets made up or I can write something that's just a whole crock of s**t."

Nicole Richie Wishes Never Had Tattoo and Piercings

February 22, 2010 09:50:30 GMT


Socialite Nicole Richie regrets piercing and inking herself as a teen - because she hates the scars and "lame" tattoos that decorate her body. The 28-year-old has several small tattoos on her neck, back, foot and stomach but is hesitant to have them removed because she hears the procedure is so painful.

And the retired party girl is even more distraught about the piercings she punched through her skin - because now she's left with lifelong scars she can do nothing about. She says, "Piercings scar but you could get your tattoo removed. When I was 15 I got my belly button pierced and it was a big deal, and now I have this scar there that I feel worse about than my tattoos."

Kasabian's Tom Meighan Mad at Internet for Killing Rock Star's Myth

February 22, 2010 09:05:48 GMT


Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has slammed his peers for opening up to fans on the internet - because he's convinced the rising popularity of celebrity blogging has "killed the myth of the rock star". The singer is angry that musicians give away so much information about themselves on blogs and social networking sites such as Twitter.com and he's sure the practice is detrimental to the music industry.

He says, "It's not like what it used to be like in rock 'n' roll. In the 60s and 70s you had the likes of David Bowie and Marc Bolan, and then in the 80s you even had s**t acts that were rock stars. Then in the 90s you had the Britpop revival. I think - especially in the last three or four years - the internet's taken a stranglehold and killed off the myth of the rock star now."
