From Rags to Riches embarrassment
Lily Allen has asked fans not to watch a new documentary on her, saying she is embarrassed by the finished programme.
Lily Allen has had quite a life with many up and down moments and her feelings on these are shown on a new TV programmes called ‘Riches To Rags’, which is to be shown on Channel 4 next week.

Lily Allen wrote on Twitter “Just a couple of things, some of you may have read about a TV show called ‘Riches To Rags’ (title not my idea) airing on Tuesday next week,”.
“We started filming it a year ago and I feel like a completely different person from the one that features in the programme. I’m inclined to ask you not to watch it cause quite frankly I am embarrassed.”
“On the other hand I want you all to watch it so you can see how the press coverage of it has been totally sensationalised and quotes taken out of context. I should probably know better than to write this here but I feel it’s the only place that my words don’t get minced. That is all.”

Kate Moss is Smoking!
Last week on Ash Wedensday it was non-smoking day here in the UK but one celeb ignored that, and although she was in Paris at the time Kate Moss still lit up a cigarette while on the catwalk at a recent fashion show.

Moss hasn’t been on the fashion runway for about three years now but as she returned wearing black hot pants and lace-up boots at the Luis Vuitton show in Paris, she was smoking.  Consequently It was also the day the government announced it was pushing ahead with plans to remove cigarettes from view in shops.

So I wonder if she was making a statement at all about how she feels about the governments plans.

Potty about Peter Pan
Everyone seems to be going potty for Peter Pan recently. There has been talk of a number of prequel’s to be made one of which will be called ‘Neverland’ and have Keria Knightly to voice the popular little fairy TinkerBell.

Others who will be part of the cast to this new film are which Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins and Charles Dance for the film, and Rhys Ifans will play Hook, who in the film is the mentor of a gang of young pickpockets which includes Peter (who will be voiced by Charlie Rowe), who steal a magical treasure which transports them to Neverland.

Also another unlikely actor is writing a tale of how Peter Pan became Peter Pan. Sony Pictures has won the race for the movie rights to Channing Tatum’s Peter Panmovie which portrays Peter Pan and his pirate nemesis Captain Hook as brothers.

Tatum confirmed that he will not be playing Peter after rumours were made that he might. He said “We are working on something that is sort of a telling of how Peter became Peter and you know, it’s not something I can talk about too much at the moment,” the former model added.

The film will be simply called ‘Pan’ and is being produced by Tatum himself along with Ried Carolin and Joe Rothe

A Break in Breaking Dawn
The 3rd instalment of Twilight, called Breaking Dawn is currently being filmed in Vancouver however there has now been a bit of a delay due to the natural disaster which took place in Japan this week.

Japan suffered a massive 8.9-magnitude tremor and devastating tidal wave which made Twilight bosses decide to move the cast and production crew out of the area for safety precaution.

A representative for Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the franchise, tells has said, “Due to the tsunami advisory, filming of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been delayed. All cast and crew were evacuated to base camp. Everyone is safe and sound.”

Ant’s been Decked

Whenever you see comedy duo Ant and Dec they are always together and it is not often you see them by themselves. However on Tuesday the pair were together with a group of friends watching a football match in The Barley Mow pub in Chiswick, West London when Dec left early without Ant!

But that’s not the gossip. After Dec’s exit Ant ended up being Decked by a drunk punter, who is believe to be a teenager, after he shouted “Where is your girlfriend?” – referring to McPartlin’s comedy partner Declan Donnelly.

An Eyewitness has said, “Ant didn’t react and this bloke launched himself at him and punched him in the face. Ant reeled back and then a big fight broke out as his mates came to help him. Other people jumped in and held back the other guy. The bloke was thrown out but when Ant left later, he was waiting for him. There was another lot of shouting and then Ant walked off. It was all totally unprovoked. He was furious about what he had said to him.”

A spokesperson for Ant McPartlin has confirmed the star was hit but will not press charges.


Ne-yo’s songs are Irreplaceable

R&B artist Ne-Yo has said he regrets giving Beyonce Kowles his song called ‘Irreplaceable’. Ne-yo let Beyonce record the song, which is about a woman who dumps her cheating boyfriend, but now says he wishes he’d kept for himself.

He said “One song that I gave away and didn’t want to is Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceable’. I honestly wrote that song for myself. But that song actually taught me a very interesting lesson – men and women don’t actually think that much differently on the grand scheme of things. However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.”

However he also recently revealed he would like to work with Beyonce’s husband Jay- Z again.
The two stars have collaborated twice before – on songs such as Ne Yo’s ‘Call Me Crazy’ and Jay’s ‘Minority Report’ – but Ne-yo believes they have not yet realised their full potential together.

He said: “Jay featured on a track of mine on my second album, and I featured on one of his on his ‘Kingdom Come’ album but we haven’t done anything since then.Jay is a good friend, he’s a good person. Though we’ve worked together I think there’s potential for a classic record there and we haven’t really realised that potential yet.”
