The "Crazy Chick" hitmaker, 24, first found fame as an 11 year old when she impressed TV viewers in Britain with her powerful vocals, and went on to achieve global fame as a classical singer.

In her late teens, Church moved into pop music and overhauled her squeaky-clean image before putting her career on hold to start a family with rugby star Gavin Henson. She released her first album in five years earlier this month - and Church has now revealed she plans to re-train as an opera singer when she becomes too old for pop.

Chester Bennington's Scene in 'Saw 3D' Is 'Horrible'


October 29, 2010 03:48:23 GMT


Rocker Chester Bennington is delighted with his latest role - he's been immortalized as a victim of twisted serial killer Jigsaw in the new "Saw" movie. The Linkin Park frontman is a huge fan of the bloodthirsty film franchise, and he jumped at the chance to play a man held in a gruesome "do or die" trap in "Saw 3D", which hits cinemas on Friday, October 29.

And the "What I've Done" hitmaker found it easy to slip into the role - he has suffered so many injuries in his life, he knows how it feels to be paralyzed by pain. Bennington tells Kerrang! magazine, "What I love about the Saw films is the incredible brutality. This is more than (Halloween killer) Michael Myers stabbing people. This is drawn-out, psychological torture where you have to hurt yourself, but it's really hard to pretend to be in agony when you're not feeling any pain."

October 29, 2010 03:18:08 GMT


"Big Love" is going to leave the TV screen with dignity next year. The show about a polygamist but breakaway Mormon church members family is ending its run after five seasons not because it loses viewers but because it has come full circle in the storytelling.

Creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer said that the show has run its course, stating "When we created 'Big Love' in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell. While we were in the writers' room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered that we were approaching the culmination of that story."

Mike Tyson and Robert Downey Jr. Share Their Opinions About Mel Gibson

October 29, 2010 03:15:58 GMT


Former boxing champion Mike Tyson is urging Mel Gibson to seek professional help as he battles personal problems, insisting the actor needs "someone to talk to". Gibson has been embroiled in a public spat with his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva this year over allegations he knocked out her teeth in a domestic dispute. Tapes of their bitter arguments, which later emerged online, intensified the fall out.

Tyson admits he can empathize with the actor/director because of his own chequered past, which saw him sensationally accused of beating his ex-wife Robin Givens, while he later sank into drug abuse. And the sportsman is adamant Gibson needs therapy to help him through the dark times. He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "We all have that guy - a Mel Gibson - in us. We just don't want people to be exposed to it. Maybe he needs to go get help. We all need help, and need someone to talk to. I'm not against him, but I'm not for him."
