Adele Almost Killed P. Diddy at First Meeting


January 13, 2011 09:20:30 GMT


British singer Adele was left red-faced when she first met Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs - because she almost crashed a golf cart into the rapper. The "Chasing Pavements" hitmaker was driving the vehicle around a studio lot when she spotted the hip-hop star and tried to brake - but stepped on the accelerator instead.

And Adele admits she didn't make a good first impression on Combs with her near-collision. She tells Britain's The Sun, "I was shooting a video on one of the big American plots, six hours I was there and I wasn't doing anything. So I convinced someone to let me drive a golf buggy.

Taylor Momsen Apologizes to Parents for Interview

January 13, 2011 09:20:05 GMT


Taylor Momsen was forced to apologize to her parents for comments she made in a recent interview, in which she appeared to blame them for pushing her into the spotlight when she was a toddler. The Pretty Reckless star appeared to slam her mum and dad for forcing her to become a model when she was just two years old, revealing in a candid chat, "No two year old wants to be working, but I had no choice... I didn't have friends. I was working constantly and I didn't have a real life."

But Momsen insists her remarks were taken out of context in the interview, and she's grateful for her parents' early encouragement - because she loves her life as a singer/actress now. Momsen tells Britain's Kerrang! magazine, "(After reading the article, they felt) horrible! I love my mom and dad. Maybe I didn't have the childhood people think you should have, but I still went through the ages, I was still a child. Maybe it wasn't a conventional one, but you know... I like where I am now so it's OK."

Former "Dawson's Creek" star James Van Der Beek broke down in tears while his wife was in labor - because he hated seeing her in so much pain. Kimberly Brook gave birth to baby Olivia in September 2010, but it was a traumatic experience for the model and her partner.

She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "Once we got to the hospital, it took 15 hours before she arrived. It was the four and a half hours of pushing that was the hard part. I got to the point where I thought I might literally pass out while my body was uncontrollably pushing."

A complaint made by a terrified 10 year old over a TV commercial promoting the gory "Saw 3D" movie has been upheld by bosses at the U.K.'s advertising watchdog. The advert for the horror franchise's final installment, which was released last October 2010, shows a screaming man with bloody hands surrounded by images of blades. To promote the movie's 3D capabilities, the clip also saw cinemagoers being bound by metal restraints in their seats and one reveler being dragged into the screen.

Officials at the U.K.'s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) launched an investigation into whether the commercial was suitable to be aired before Britain's 9 P.M. (GMT) watershed after a pre-teen phoned to complain about the "distressing" content. The ad had been shown in a commercial break during a popular gadget programme at 8.30 P.M. (GMT).

Newly-single Eva Longoria has vowed not to remove her marriage tattoo following the breakdown of her relationship with Tony Parker, amid speculation she is undergoing laser treatment to erase the inking. The "Desperate Housewives" star wed the basketball player on July 7, 2007 and subsequently had the date drawn in roman numerals on her wrist.

Longoria made headlines in November when she filed for divorce from Parker, citing irreconcilable differences amid allegations he had been unfaithful. The actress stepped out in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 8 to attend Jeremy Renner's birthday party and the tattoo tribute appeared to have faded, prompting rumors Longoria has started treatment to remove the body art.
