YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF CELEBRITY NEWS! (PART 1)

Posted by: on Feb 13, 2012 | No Comments

Wow, this week has been jam-packed with the sad news of a legend’s death, celebrity revelations and lots of juicy gossip from both the UK and the other side of the pond. Read on for your weekly update of all the celeb stories you need to know about…

Madonna at the Super Bowl:

Did any of you stay up to watch the half-time Super Bowl performance by pop queen Madonna? If not, you missed a cracker!

The 43 year old superstar didn’t just perform her new single Give Me All Your Luvin’ but was the star of the show- with a tribute to, well, herself.

And if you didn’t notice, she mimed the entire show. Disappointed? Don’t be. The lack of live vocals in fact provided a heightened spectacle of dance and performance.

As the lights came up and the show began during half time in Indianapolis, the Like A Virgin singer was carried out to the stage by an army of gladiators. She burst into a rendition of her smash-hit Vogue in a show-stopping headdress and outfit, accompanied by images of the front cover of Vogue Magazine- allowed by Editor Anna Wintour.

As Vogue transformed into Music, party rockers LMFAO added their hit Party Rock Anthem to create a full-style disco tune. Next was Madonna’s new song Give Me All Your Luvin’ and was joined on stage by M.I.A (who outraged viewers with a shocking middle-finger salute) and Nicki Minaj dressed as cheerleaders.

Lastly, Cee-Lo Green accompanied Queen Madge with an enormous choir for an amazing performance of Like A Prayer, ending with a super-sized message of ‘World Peace’ emblazoned in lights across the ground.

Cheryl Cole and MC Harvey’s ‘relationship’:

Last week there was a big fuss going on between So Solid Crew’s Harvey and Cheryl Cole, but it all seemed a bit too ridiculous to be true.

MC Harvey, real name Michael Harvey Jr, told Now magazine that he and the 28 year old Girls Aloud singer had a secret relationship following the split of her and footballer Ashley Cole.

He claims to have helped her through her heartbreak at the breakdown of her marriage, telling Now that he was her shoulder to cry on under the cover of her supposed relationship with backing dancer Derek Hough.

He told Now that he fell for the Geordie singer and would have happily taken things further: “I wouldn’t have minded Cheryl being my wife. There was a relationship and an attraction to each other’s aura.”

“We started confiding in each other. I’d never disclose that stuff. It’s personal.”

Cheryl hit back at his claims on Social networking site Twitter and simply said: “Was this ‘relationship’ happening in your head @harveyofficial?! Are you smoking something? I think I’ve met you once maybe twice at public events and with your wife!! #s**tjustgetsweirder.”

He replied with: “Do you want me to tweet some of the messages you emailed me? Pipe down and stop playing the saint in front of your fans. If the public saw these emails you would end up with egg on your face.”

“I’d rather go broke and work in Sainsburys than talk about your personal s**t.”

Cheryl’s pal Nicola Roberts later added on Twitter:  “Emails..?? I think someone’s been having you on mate..” and “#shedoesntdoemails #shedoesphonesex.”

Harvey’s friends Oxide and Neutrino have apparently backed him up saying they’ve seen messages from Cheryl on his phone, but Harvey has recently backtracked on his original story, now stating that they had a “communication relationship”.

We wonder if this is all one big publicity stunt as Harvey promotes his new song. Since the story emerged his Twitter account has seen an enormous jump in followers- from 15,000 to a crazy 43,000!

The story has progressed this week with lawyers being called in to ‘clear Cheryl’s name’. Now magazine have said they have seen the ‘proof’ of the romance yet are not in the possession of any emails. Hmmmm, just what is going on?

Naomi Watts to play Princess Diana:

King Kong’s Naomi Watts has been announced as the new actress set to play Princess Diana in upcoming film Caught in Flight after actress Jessica Chastain pulled out of the role.

The film will focus on the final two years of Diana’s life before her untimely death in Paris in August 1997. Director Oliver Hirschbiegel, who brought the last days of Hitler to the big screen in 2004’s Downfall.

British born Watts, who was brought up in Australia, said: “It is such an honour to be able to play this iconic role – Princess Diana was loved across the world and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen.”

Chantelle and Alex Reid are having a baby girl:

We love a bit of baby news here at Gossipdrip!

On Tuesday reality star Chantelle Houghton tweeted: “Me and Alex @Only1AlexReid are so happy to reveal we are expecting a baby girl. We can’t wait and couldn’t be happier XXXX”

28 year old Chantelle and fiancé Alex Reid, cagefighter and ex of Katie Price, had been thrilled at the news of the surprise pregnancy. Chantelle had been told by many doctors over the years that her dramatic dieting had caused her to be near-infertile and that her chances of conceiving naturally were incredibly slim.

Telling OK! Magazine this week about how they found out the sex of their unborn baby, Chantelle said: “We got the doctor to write it down and put it in an envelope so we could open it at home. I wanted to do it all special.”

“It was such a shock. I just sat there crying and Alex was completely open-mouthed, it all became so much more real.”

Chantelle has been spotted for baby clothes, including a tiny leopard print coat, and has said that Victoria and David Beckham’s new born Harper Seven will have a fashion enemy: “Harper has got some serious competition coming along! Our daughter is going to beat her in the fashion stakes.”

Their baby girl is due in the spring, and will be born into a world of cameras as it is reported that the couple will welcome their child as part of a reality television series.
