November 05, 2010 09:29:01 GMT


Mariah Carey is unhappy with her concerned husband's choice of footwear for her now she's expecting his child - not all the flat shoes he has bought her fit her sense of style. Carey's man Nick Cannon went public last week with his thoughts about his pregnant wife's footwear fetish, insisting he wanted her to climb down from her high-heels and opt for more sensible shoes now she's with child.

After a comical row with Carey on his radio show, Cannon revealed plans to go shopping for flats for his wife - and spent last weekend picking the most appropriate footwear for a pregnant woman. But Carey wasn't impressed. She says, "He's really trying to be responsible about it... He came home with all these bags and I'm looking and I'm like, 'Aw, that was really sweet!' I'm looking at them, trying to be nice... because I'm a little specific about my stuff."

U2 stars Bono and The Edge's much-anticipated "Spider-Man" musical has been hit by another major blow - the project looks set for yet another delay due to an ongoing safety investigation. "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has been under investigation by the New York State Department of Labor for its high-flying stunts, which left one actor with two broken wrists in October.

Safety Inspectors visited Broadway's Foxwoods Theater on Wednesday, November 3 but had to schedule a second inspection when producers were unable to show them every planned stunt. They have been told they cannot stage the show for the public until state inspectors have approved all the special effects and safety procedures, following actor Kevin Aubin's accident.

As for message behind the video, Ayer had this to say to MTV, "No matter how big you are, how important you are in this temporal world of ours, there's somebody more important. You have to answer for your sins, and that's a little bit of what this video is about. And the person who sort of represents the power in this video isn't, like, some hardcore gangster guy, but little old Anna Kendrick kinda being her shy self."

November 05, 2010 04:25:40 GMT


A nude painting of "James Bond" legend Sir Sean Connery has been unearthed in his native Scotland - and it's set to go on display at an exhibition. The veteran actor worked as a naked model for art students before his acting career took off, and the newly-discovered work was created in 1951, 11 years before his first outing as 007.

It was painted by artist Rab Webster and was discovered by relatives among a pile of paintings at his home in Selkirk, Scotland following his death last month. Nick Bihel, a relative of Webster, says, "The oil painting was part of a whole load of paintings just stacked on top of each other in a studio he used as a dark room. He never sold or exhibited any of his paintings but it is fairly obvious he was a very talented artist."
