Drake Clears Up Comment About Him Feeling 'Used' by Rihanna


June 18, 2010 03:13:00 GMT


Drake insists he did not mean to be "negative" about his fling with Rihanna after opening up about their brief romance in a recent interview - he just felt hurt when his feelings for the singer weren't reciprocated. The pair sparked rumors of a romance last year after they were spotted enjoying a night out in New York together following Rihanna's split from Chris Brown.

Drake - real name Aubrey Graham - recently spoke to the New York Times about their fling, accusing the "Umbrella" hitmaker of using him like "a pawn" and leaving him feeling "terrible" after breaking off the short-term affair. The rapper is adamant he did not mean to offend Rihanna with his comments, because she is such an "overwhelming and incredible person", but he could not help feeling "small" when the romance came to an abrupt halt.

June 18, 2010 03:10:23 GMT


Ashton Kutcher impressed his "Killers" co-star Katherine Heigl with his down-to-earth attitude - because he was "really nervous" about stripping off for a scene. The actor plays an undercover assassin who quits his job when he falls in love with a woman played by Heigl and spent weeks honing his physique before filming.

But Kutcher was still worried about appearing topless on-set - a trait Heigl found endearing. She tells Britain's Live from Studio Five, "Ashton spent that entire day worried about how he looked on camera, like anybody would, because he knew he'd be shirtless for that whole entire scene."

June 18, 2010 03:06:46 GMT


The stars of the "Harry Potter" franchise have criticized London mayor Boris Johnson after the politician complained a new wizarding theme park should have been built in Britain, not America. Johnson recently blasted bosses at film giant Warner Bros., calling them "utterly mad" for allowing a Harry Potter park to be created in Florida, when the books and movies are all set in the U.K.

The franchise's stars, including Michael Gambon and Tom Felton, disagree with Johnson and have now waded into the debate, insisting a similar attraction would not work in London. Speaking at the launch of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida on Wednesday night, June 16, Gambon tells Britain's GMTV, "Oh he's a silly old fart isn't he, really? Boris Johnson... What's he talking about? I mean only 10 people live in England don't they? You've got to have it in America to get the money back."
