Rihanna new single 'Umbrella' and new album

Rihanna

Did you miss her? R&B star Rihanna will release of her third album in just two years! How she explains it? For my surprise, Rihanna revealed her record label bosses at Def Jam are sure of her talent and they will continue to be in the charts with her singles and albums. Rihanna' yet untitled album comes out in June, and the R&B star revealed that for his album the sound has changed, "it's a lot edgier than the rest of the stuff that anyone has heard from me before [...] it's a lot sexier."

I've listen her newest single, "Umbrella" (featuring Jay-Z) produced by C. Tricky Stewart and I have to say is just an ordinary song, nothing special! I was actually shocked when I read what Def Jam President Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter said about Rihanna's album : "it shows such growth for her as an artist. If you listen to the lyrics to that song, you know the depth and how far she's come."

It's true I haven't heard Rihanna's album, but till then I will have my doubts.

The actress, who's recent movie is "Perfect Stranger", will be added to the Hollywood Boulevard landmark, right in front of the home of the Academy Awards, the Kodak Theatre.

I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me. She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do. It was all about a relationship. My sense of worth was so low. I promised myself I would never be a coward again.

Although it may be a bit of a rush, they’re thinking about getting married this June. That’s when Bar turns 22. Leo and Bar are ecstatic, as are both their families.

According a new Life & Style magazine list, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria has Hollywood's Sexiest Legs beating celebrities like Matthew McConaughey and Beyonce Knowles. Eva Longoria, who is engaged and soon to be married to basketball star Tony Parker, reportedly revealed her legs are her favorite body part. Anyway the top five in the new magazine poll are: Eva Longoria, Matthew McConaughey, Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz and Beyonce Knowles. I have to mention that I see no reason why Paris Hilton is on the list, her legs are far from being labeled as one of the sexiest. Other celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Rihanna or Amerie could easily take her spot even if is just am ordinary poll!

Halle Berry "I will never, never get married again"

Halle Berry

According to the news, Hollywood star Halle Berry will never get married again. This reminds me what Gloria Swanson once well said that "never say never [...]; never is a long, undependable time, and life is too full of rich possibilities to have restrictions placed upon it." Anyway, it seems her past marriage experiences to baseball star David Justice and singer Eric Benet helped her realize that she doesn't need a ring and a paper to live next to the man that she wants. Halle Berry is currently dating model Gabriel Aubry, for more than a year, and my guess is that she doesn't want to marry him, even if she is considering having children. In other Celebrity news, Berry denied the rumors that she may be pregnant. The gossip magazines have been speculating this for weeks especially that Hally Berry has been open about her desire to have a child before reaching 40, even stated that she would consider adopting if she has problems conceiving.

I will never, never get married again. Actually it's just that now I've come to a place where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper.

Who would've thought that the supermodel Naomi Campbell will - at some point in her life - be mopping floors in New York. She will take care of her cleaning duties for five days, after being ordered by a Manhattan judge earlier this year as punishment for throwing a mobile phone at maid Ana Scolavino. Campbell, has worked harder than many regular staff members, started her first day of community service in New York City yesterday in private, in order to avoid the press.

She worked really hard and asked the supervisor, 'How am I doing?' He told her she was working harder than some regular staff. But some of the women who work here have been a bit catty and say they are going to make extra mess for her to clean.

I am Joss Stone and I am a vegetarian."

I feel there is no need to cause another living thing pain or harm. There are so many other things we can eat. I have never eaten meat in my life and I'm five feet 10 inches and not exactly wasting away. A wise man once said, 'Animals are my friends and I'm not in the habit of eating my friends.' That is exactly how I feel.

Would you ever demolish a $48.7 million mansion? Tiger Woods is actually planning it. He has his mind set on demolish his $48.7 million Florida mansion later this month in order to build a home. Tiger will pull down the mansion not for building a bigger one (as the celebrity high life style got us used to), but for less than half the size of the current property. Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren are expecting their first child this summer so the new house will be for the new family.
