Gorgeous Myleene Klass is eight months pregnant and has an insatiable craving… WORK. Her passion for keeping busy is stronger than ever despite her – perfectly-formed expanding tummy. Myleene admits: “I’m not someone who likes to sit around on the sofa watching TV all day at the best of times. “And I certainly wasn’t going to just sit around and wait for the baby to appear, which is why I’ve been putting in seven-day working weeks.” Yeah, she really working hard and it might be that her baby walks out of her womb says ?mom I am off to work, see you later in the day, do not wait for me at dinner, may me and the other kids would go out tonight.? Being a workoholic is good and it?s a syndrome that has engulfed most of us today. These are very testing times on a woman and she needs rest and care as well, moving all the time means greater risk of an unfortunate happening occuring. She should be careful.
As if her life wasn?t already enough of a gong show, each day seems to add to it. It seems that Britney Spears body guard Julio Camera is being charged because of an assault on a photographer on Thursday. The photographer had been trying to take pictures of Spears and her two children walking through a hotel in Vegas. Her bodyguard lashed out at the man, shoving him which witnesses say caused Sean Preston to also be hurt. Britney is blaming the photographer Kyle Henderson for the incident with her son. The Las Vegas P.D. is charging Camera with battery while Spears is trying to do the same against Henderson. The most amazing thing here is that literally every single day in the life of Britney Spears is a gong show. Courtney Love can breathe a sigh of relief. She is no longer the most screwed up celebrity in Hollywood.
The Spice Girls have added three more dates to their upcoming reunion tour. The shows, in Vancouver, British Columbia (December 2); San Jose, California (December 4); and Shanghai, China (January 8), join a roster of 11 previously announced dates, with the Vancouver gig now serving as the tour’s opening night. This is getting bigger and better from the group. This is the fun in regrouping after a long time. You tend to feel there is so much that you have missed while being away that you add more dates to the world tour so as to be with each other for that wee bit longer, catch up on old times share good memroies and giggle on stupid mistakes that now sound so funny and ridiculous. There would be as much fun as on stage as there would be behind it and if things turn out as I think it would be then this world tour could be of the most successful events of the decade.

Roses will reunite without Axl Rose to mark the 20th anniversary since the debut album, Appetite for Destruction. The event will take place at the Los Angeles Key Club on July 28th.

“I was going out with this girl for two years — the most beautiful girl in school — but she cheated on me with my best friend,” the Miami-born, Jamaica-bred Kingston says about his first heartbreak.
The experience, though, served as inspiration for the record-setting “Beautiful Girls,” from his self-titled debut, due July 31 via Beluga Heights/Epic Records. The single, which samples Ben E. King’s 1961 classic “Stand by Me,” entered the Hot 100 Airplay chart in June at No. 58, and in just four weeks jumped to No. 5, the quickest climb by a new male artist since Lou Bega in 1999.
Kingston, who is the first artist signed to J.R. Rotem’s Beluga Heights label, was so eager to work with the producer that he “wrote a message asking him to check out my music and sent it via MySpace. I kept going back and copying and pasting the e-mail and resending it to J.R. three times a day for weeks,” he says. “I knew eventually he would have to reply.”
Rotem’s younger brother Tommy, who manages his page, weeded out Kingston from the many requests and started to correspond with him. “(Tommy) saw the promise in Sean when he first heard him, so he started to work with him, giving him beats and direction so he could present him to me in the best possible light,” says Rotem. “When I heard him, I knew it felt right.”
Kingston, whose grandfather is Bob Marley & the Wailers producer Jack Ruby, discovered his affinity for music at the age of 10, when he wrote his first song over an Alicia Keys beat. His mother was so impressed that she started to invest in studio time for Kingston. With her support, Kingston spent the next few years penning tracks and recording music, hoping to catch his big break.
“I used to go to different studios, barbershops, skating rinks, flea markets … you name it. I was always ready to show talent and hand out my CDs.” But at 14, Kingston experienced the second heartbreak of his young life when his mother was arrested for tax evasion. “I was really close to my mom, and so when she went away it took a big chunk out of me,” Kingston says. “My sister stayed with me, but then she also went away for her involvement in my mother’s crime.” His sister was released after four months, but his mother is still serving time.
Instead of allowing the ordeal to deter him, Kingston, who chooses not to curse in his music (“If a pastor’s daughter wants to buy my CD, she’ll be able to because I make clean music,” he says), used the events to inspire the track “Prosecutor,” in which he recounts his family’s court trials.
“Beautiful Girls,” which will be made available July 24 on iTunes, sits at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has sold 593,000 mastertones through the week ending July 8, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Kingston is the No. 1 artist on MySpace, with more than 5 million profile views.
Evan Rachel Wood has followed Mischa Barton’s example by snubbing the Hollywood party scene. The 19-year-old star prefers a quiet life with her 38-year-old rocker boyfriend Marilyn Manson to the night clubs and bars of Los Angeles. She tells “I’m not saying I’m better than anyone else, but that kind of lifestyle never really appealed. I hate smoking and I’m hopeless at drinking. I’m not saying I’m an angel; I just don’t have an addictive personality. Even today, with Manson, I’m happier staying at home watching movies.” I think these words make her the hottest property in the world, from LA to Manhattan, From Tokyo to Buenos Aires. She looks so hot and at 19 she has fun watching movies with her boyfriend and takes pride in telling us that. At least she has a different taste for life and not like the other party girls of Hollywood that either slamming their cars at road interceptions or carrying drugs in their pockets as if it were some candies.
M.I.A. has finally been granted a new U.S. visa, allowing her to travel to the States to perform.
She plays the Siren Festival on New York’s Coney Island tomorrow (July 21).
She had previously been refused a U.S. visa on numerous occasions, scuppering her chances of promoting her debut album Arular in America. It has been reported that her father was a member of the terrorist group the Tamil Tigers, in Sri Lanka, which may have been a factor the U.S. authorities’ thinking.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to get into the U.S.,” she told the Village Voice a few days before she was granted her visa. “I have an apartment in Brooklyn. It’d be nice to go there.”
The singer added she did not think her heavily political lyrics or background had anything to do with the previous refusals.
“Generally, there’s just some bands over here [in the U.K.] going through it,’ she said. ‘I think Klaxons are in the same boat.”
M.I.A. releases he new album, Kala, on August 21.
