Tom Jones' Sarcastic Unemployment Record Unearthed

March 09, 2010 10:24:49 GMT


Tom Jones annoyed welfare workers by claiming unemployment money at the start of his career - because he snubbed all the evening jobs he was offered. A stack of newly discovered records from Pontypridd employment center in Wales have shed light on the star's humble beginnings, revealing Thomas John Woodward, as he was then named, had a "non-enthusiasm" for finding work.

And staff quickly caught on that the youngster was trying to carve out a career as a pop star, according to their notes from 1961 to 1964. One note states, "He does not want shift work but I believe the reason for his not liking shifts is because he is a member of a vocal group which is supposedly an amateur affair."

March 09, 2010 04:02:42 GMT


Documentary filmmaker Roger Ross Williams felt like Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when his former producer stole his spotlight at the Oscars on Sunday, March 7. Audience members at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood and viewers around the world were puzzled when Elinor Burkett joined Williams onstage and pushed him aside as he started his Best Documentary Short acceptance speech.

Stunned Williams admits he was too shocked to do anything, but now insists Burkett should never have been there after removing her name from the credits of the film following a bust-up over the film "Music by Prudence". Burkett tells Salon, "The director and I had a bad difference over the direction of the film that resulted in a lawsuit that has settled amicably out of court."

March 09, 2010 03:29:51 GMT


Lindsay Lohan's time as a fashion house advisor appears to be over - she has parted ways with Emanuel Ungaro. The actress' debut runway display as Ungaro's artistic advisor in 2009 was poorly received, and the 23-year-old star was nowhere to be seen at Paris Fashion Week in France.

The brand's owner Asim Abdullah tells Women's Wear Daily, "She's not involved in this collection." He refused to expand on his comments. Mounir Moufarrige, who recruited Lohan to work for the design house, stepped down as company president just months after Lohan's widely-panned line hit the catwalk in September 2009.

Speaking on behalf of the show bosses, Oscars executive director Bruce Davis claims it is impossible to include every star who died last year in the montage.

"It is the single most troubling element of the Oscar show every year," Davis states, defending their decision. "Because more people die each year than can possibly be included in that segment. You are dropping people who the public knows. It's just not comfortable."
