Boyfans, hold back those tears! One of our most favourite celebrities – Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie – has revealed she’s undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her apparently high risk of breast cancer.
Because of a ‘faulty’ gene, doctors had informed Ms Jolie she had an 87 per cent risk of breast cancer and a 50 per cent risk of ovarian cancer. Since having the operation, Ms Jolie, 37, says she has reduced her risk of developing breast cancer to less than 5 per cent.
In a New York Times opinion piece, the superstar, partner to Brad Pitt and mother of six, says she quietly finished three months of medical procedures on April 27. In light of Ms Jolie’s brave actions doctors are predicting an increase in the number of Australian women getting tests for breast cancer gene mutations :: Read the full article »»»»

Hip Hop superstar Snoop Dogg – Calvin Cordozar Broadus Junior – is moving himself up in the world. He now wishes to be known as Snoop Lion.
The mult award - including AVN, MTV & Stony‘s - winning rapper told a press conference that he’s been inspired to change his stage name to something a little more Jah inspired.
While on a recent visit to a Rastafarian temple in Jamaica Snoop was apparently hit by a very puffy epiphany.
“I want to bury Dogg and become Snoop Lion,” the singer, wearing a Rasta knitted hat and dark glasses, said at a press conference on Monday.
Snoop said he went to Jamaica to get close to reggae legend Bob Marley’s roots. He said that while visiting a Rastafarian temple, “the high priest” told him his name was no longer Dogg.
“He looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light, you are the lion’,” Snoop told reporters. ”As a forty year old man in the music industry… you know the artists call me Uncle Snoop, I gotta give them something, I’m a wise man in this industry” :: Read the full article »»»»

Reuters is reporting that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from her superstar husband Tom Cruise, ending a six-year marriage that produced one daughter and captivated celebrity watchers worldwide.
Holmes filed papers in New York City on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking sole custody of the couple’s six-year-old daughter Suri in a move that came “out of the blue” for the Mission Impossible actor, said one source with knowledge of the situation.
The source said Cruise is out of the country filming a movie in Iceland and the filing came as a surprise.
The actor’s spokeswoman issued a brief statement, saying: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out.” No further comment was made :: Read the full article »»»»

Two weeks ago we asked a stupid question – not our first – Ever have one of those days? the reference was to Matthew Newtons oddball arrest in Miami over his apparent drunk and disorderly behaviour. It seems Mr Newton is pulling a Charlie on us. Not happy with just one arrest, the Aussie actor has gone back in for a heap more trouble.
Newton has been arrested again in the United States after allegedly punching a hotel clerk because he could not get reception for his smartphone. Newton must feel like it’s Wombat Day – we don’t have groundhogs here sorry - he was charged with the battery of an employee at a Miami hotel, as well as resisting arrest. U.S. hotel staff must be asking themselves wtf is it with Aussies and phones?? In 2005 Russell Crowe went on a similar – but clearly not the same – rampage in a SoHo Hotel
:: UPDATE :: In what can only be described as a No-Sh_t Sherlock moment, Miami prosecutors will investigate whether Matthew Newton is suffering from some form of mental illness :: Read the full article »»»»

It seems the exodus of money has finally quietened Kyle Sandilands? The enormous mouth of the kiwi radio personality has churned out some rubbish in it’s time.
Sandilands has been pulled from the air more than once in his lackluster radio career, after several absolutely shameful acts: ”Magda Szubanski would lose more weight in a concentration camp” and then of course there was the moral high Sandilands reached when a 14 year old girl who he’d had hooked up to a lie detector revealed she was raped when she was 12.
Sandilands latest on-air rant against journalist Alison Stephenson has perhaps woken the impresario? Read the full article »»»»
