Madge admitted that David likes to dress up in her costumes and knows all the moves from her videos and shows. She also said she was amazed when 8-yr old Rocco danced on the stage in front of thousands during a show on her Sticky & Sweet Tour – the same show that big Sis Lola showcased her dance moves in when she appeared with Madge’s professional dancers for one number and played the piano in another.

Seems that Madge may just have to hang up her fishnets and become a ‘Stage Mum’ as this little brood sound like they’re out to be the next big things and that’s before Mercy has even got in on the action! Too Cute.

It’s Smoker-Face! http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/its-smoker-face/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/its-smoker-face/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 16:17:32 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3493 Naughty naughty Gaga!

Her latest stunt on stage may not be seen as a great move, particularly to those fans under the age of 16 who are heavily influenced by their idol’s image.

Stunning the audience in Vancouver whilst on her Fame Monster Tour, the singer lit up and started puffing away on a cigarette, knowing full-well that smoking is illegal indoors in British Columbia.

That didn’t bother the Gaga though as she chugged away flouting the ban and could now face a whopping fine.  Tut Tut!

Think Pink for Christmas http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/think-pink-for-christmas/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/think-pink-for-christmas/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 15:28:00 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3488 Whilst sipping on a little champers the other night, I noticed a lovely ‘Rose petal’ scent as the bubbles fizzed and wondered if this was a new brand of  bubbly I had missed…surely not!

But it was actually a new scented syrup called ‘Douceur Florale Rose’ which can be added to plain old bubbly to give it a little hint of pink and add a little extra sparkle for your Christmas party. It’s currently doing the rounds at all the hip hotels and parties across London and of course, the Domestic Goddess of Food and Drink Nigella Lawson has already given it a name-check..so you HAVE to get it now!

The syrup can also be added to cakes, biccies and chocolate mixes if you’re a cook, unlike me. And of course, the chic little bottle looks fabulous in any funky kitchen. It’s available from www.simplyroses.com priced at £12.95, but it’s currently sold out online. 

You’ll probably find it in a little kitsch boutique somewhere in Hampstead, Notting Hill or Shoreditch though, you know the type I mean!

Sleep Standing..no really http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/sleep-standing-no-really/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/sleep-standing-no-really/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 15:11:53 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3482 I can see why women may be attracted to this more than anyone else, what with our addiction to shopping and all that – a quick nap in between stores to recharge the retail batteries would be most welcome, along with a glass of Rioja Reserva!

And for the workaholic in you, 30mins of Zzzzz’s in your lunch-break could prevent those embarrassing yawns you stifle and near drop-offs during that afternoon meeting – so why not try the new ‘Vertical Bed’ from artist Jamie O’Shea.

Already tested out on New Yorkers with a successful response, the bed attaches a cushioned contraption to a pavement drain cover or vent as they say in the US.  Then the sleeper secures themselves with metal braces whilst relaxing on the neck and back brace which extends to the feet. The vertical bed also comes with noise-cancelling headphones, opaque sunglasses and even a brolly should it rain whilst you drift off into dream-land.

Hmm..can’t say if it will take off over here – and what happens if you don’t screw the fixings in properly, fall into a deep sleep and end up halfway down the street! Brings a new meaning to the saying ’sleeping on the job’ though heh!

“Take That”..Perez Get’s a Taste of His Own Medicine! http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/take-that-perez-gets-a-taste-of-his-own-medicine/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/take-that-perez-gets-a-taste-of-his-own-medicine/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 14:14:35 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3478 On the blogger’s site this week, the Hilton decided a bit of ‘Brit Bashing’ was in order after he reported that ex-model and TV Presenter Alexa Chung’s MTV show ‘It’s On with Alexa Chung’ had been cancelled after only two seasons.

The Queenie blogger used the header ‘RIP‘ for his report with a picture of Chung graffitied with the words ‘Pack Your Bags’.

Chung was trying to break into US TV after successfully hosting various C4 and E4 shows over here and followed boyfriend Alex Turner (Artic Monkeys) to NYC where the pair rent a flat.

Must be a touch of jealousy for Perez, obviously envious of the fact he’ll never be invited into Chung’s ‘inner circle’ which includes Henry Holland, Kelly Osbourne, Agyness Deyn and Peaches Geldof – currently Brit-Hot both sides of the Pond – something Perez can’t lay claim to.

Or could it be his ‘ego’ has now completely swallowed him up, after the recent reports about him storming out of a US Breakfast TV Show (KTLA)  on which he was booked to promote his new book about HollywoodGossip. The blogger turned up earlier than his allocated slot and threw a hissy fit when his request to re-jig the schedules was refused. Using the excuse that he had to leave early to work on his blog, he also demanded a luxury dressing room to work on his laptop!

The celebrity blogger has as many haters as he does fans, with the whole situation blowing up and back-firing right in his funny-looking face, with the news anchor for KLTA saying this about the event:

OUCH…”a talentless little Dope“…. I bet that’s one piece of gossip that didn’t make Perez’s blog! 

It’s just not his week huh….must be the time of the month, because despite all those tweets about losing so much weight, he’s still looking like he’s retaining alot of blubber to me!

Avatar is A-mazing! http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/avatar-is-a-mazing/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/avatar-is-a-mazing/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 13:35:28 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3474 avatar

The 3D digital technology combined with Cameron’s epic story-telling is just mesmerizing and it’s the best 162mins you’ll spend this side of Christmas!

If you’re quick, you can book advance 3D screening tickets with the Odeon online now, for previews this Wednesday and Thursday across London and the UK. Go to www.odeon.co.uk.

Tiger admits to being a ‘Tiger’…grrr http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/tiger-admits-to-being-a-tiger-grrr/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/tiger-admits-to-being-a-tiger-grrr/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 13:08:34 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3470 So the dull and not-at-all-good-looking Golf player has finally admitted to using his ‘putter‘ all over town, in an official statement on his website that says:

“I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness”.

That ‘infidelity’ totals 11 women, most of whom have already notched up their bank balances a few extra dollars since the story broke, with one of the women announcing on TV that she will bounce back from this, unlike Tiger.

Erm, he’s a multi-million dollar earning sportsman who was a ‘boring family-man’ before these flings were exposed and is now being seen as a bit of a ‘Tiger’, living up to his name. Somehow I think this is all going to go in his favour! Remember how dull we all thought Becks was before the Rebecca Loos scandal – it may have initially dented his ‘Perfect Father and Husband’ image and lost him a few sponsorship deals, much like Tiger. But ultimately it boosted his ‘macho‘ image and turned the ‘boy who became the famous footballer’ into the ‘man who became the adulterer with the roving eye’..sexy however you look at it.

But unlike Tiger, Becks had the looks - but I guess where money is concerned there will always be those ‘types’ of women who will do anything for publicity..even sleep with the world’s most boring Golfer. But like Loos, they will disappear after their 5 minutes is up and Tiger will eventually claw his way back to the edge of the green and profess to be a ‘new man’..it worked for Becks..so I’m sure Tiger will be back on ’par’ soon.

The Mini-Brat Pack http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/the-mini-brat-pack/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/the-mini-brat-pack/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 12:41:44 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3467 I want to say it’s ‘cute‘, but it’s not, it’s actually just a little disturbing to see a 3-yr old girl applying lipstick and wearing gold heels - just one pair in a long line this little girl has been pictured in !

Is it just me, or is Suri Cruise looking like a right little madam? It could be seen as ‘sweet’ in any other world, but as she’s the daughter of couch-jumping scientologist Tom Cruise and the very dull Katie Holmes, she’s definitely shaping up to be the next spoilt little Hollywood brat.

Posh is a Fashion Masochist! http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/posh-is-a-fashion-masochist/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/posh-is-a-fashion-masochist/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 12:08:21 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3460 She tip toes around in some of the world’s most coveted designer heels and is rarely seen in anything but high-rise footwear - but now for Victoria Beckham it seems the years of gliding have turned to clump-sliding, due to the onset of bunions!

Pictured recently in Paris, the ex-Spice Girl exited her car avec une chaussure on her right foot, exposing a very sore looking joint on her left foot..ouch.

It’s reported she’s turned to the ‘Alexander Technique’ – a discipline that many Actors use which focuses on strengthening the body’s core muscles and improving posture. This from the woman who turns up to watch her sons play football in 6-inch stilettos??

Posh wouldn’t be Posh without her super heels but looking at the second shot of her below in ‘Louboutins‘, how painful does that look??!!!! Come on Posh…just embrace the flip flop and give those plates of meat a rest!

Is Dannii leaving the X-Factor? http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/is-dannii-leaving-the-x-factor/ http://www.showbiz-i.com/2009/12/12/is-dannii-leaving-the-x-factor/#comments Sat, 12 Dec 2009 11:39:24 +0000 admin http://www.showbiz-i.com/?p=3457 If recent reports are to be believed, X-Factor Judge Dannii Minogue has apparently told Simon Cowell she may not return to the panel next year, due to her desire to settle down and start a family with boyf Kris Smith.

The rumours have already begun as to who could potentially replace her with ex-Spice Girl Mel B the front-runner, being a favourite of Cowell and also ex-Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland.

Shame they can’t just get rid of Cowell too, the format is becoming a bit tiresome now with him just bigging-up his own artists with the same familiar phrases like “that was absolutely amazing“, “outstanding“, “best performance of the night“…blah blah blah. He just berates everyone else’s acts until the public really like them, then he does the usual U-turn and decides to back the performers he’s slated..same old same old.  He always stands to pocket from whoever the winner is anyway and quite frankly I’m over his ego already.

As for the big finale shows tonight and tomorrow…the only thing that might draw me in is the promise of Jedward making a comeback to perform live! As for the winner -my prediction is Olly – but not because I want him to win – but because the whole of Essex and every teenage girl in Britain will be voting for him so it’s a done deal really. He’ll be a one-hit wonder anyway, much like that little Scottie winner Leon – where he is now?? hmm, exactly.

Watch tonight on ITV1 from 8pm, with duets on the big finale shows including Robbie Williams and Olly, George Michael with Joe and Stacey with the Buble (lucky girl).
