They infuriated the "American Idol" judge by topping Joe McElderry with the re-release of their 1992 hit "Killing in the Name", and are set to put on a massive free gig in London in June to thank fans for downloading their track.

Emma Thompson's Husband Thought His Future Wife Was Kate Winslet

March 30, 2010 03:03:46 GMT


Actor Greg Wise tried to seduce Kate Winslet before he married Emma Thompson - after a clairvoyant told him he was destined to wed a "Sense and Sensibility" co-star. Wise met both Winslet and Thompson on the set of the 1995 movie, and was convinced the "Titanic" star was his future wife after a fortune-teller predicted he would fall in love during filming.

But because Thompson was still married to Kenneth Branagh at the time, Wise tried to date Winslet instead - but they failed to hit it off. He went on to wed Thompson in 2003. Thompson says, "Of course I was still married to Ken so Greg thought it must be (Kate) Winslet and he courted her assiduously."

Ricky Martin Blessed to Be 'Homosexual Man'

March 30, 2010 02:11:48 GMT


Singer Ricky Martin has finally confirmed the worst kept secret in pop - he's gay. The "Livin' La Vida Loca" hitmaker has long been dogged by rumors he's a homosexual but he has never 'come out' as a gay mann- until now. Ironically, he attempted to brush off speculation about his sexuality in a candid interview almost a decade ago, stating "I am a modern man, live a full life, do not feel any barriers inside myself. If I were gay, why not admit it? I am a normal man. I love women and sex. I am a real hot-blooded Puerto Rican, but I have never been attracted by sex with a man."

But Martin further fueled the gay rumors in 2008 when he adopted twin baby boys, Matteo and Valentino, born to a surrogate mother. And now the star has finally revealed all to fans in a post on his official website, confirming he is attracted to men.
