Justin Bieber going sober
with the help of his pastor
he ‘Boyfriend’ hitmaker - who recently released a video in which
he apologised to his fans for being “arrogant and conceited” - is
believed to have turned to Christian minister Carl Lentz, with
whom he is close friends, to help him clean up his bad habits and give
up drugs and alcohol. A source said: “There’s no one Justin looks up to
more than Carl. He’s had a huge influence on him. “They spoke at
length about how he can get his life and career back on track and
both agreed that getting rid of alcohol and drugs was the natural first
step.” It is thought the 20-year-old singer has been warned by his
manager Scooter Braun that he won’t be producing any more records
until he has cleaned up his act for good. The source told The Sun
newspaper: “Justin has made promises like this before but this time
we all genuinely believe he is clean. “His manager Scooter Braun was
very clear that, until Justin sorted himself out, his music comeback
was on hold.” Justin also reached out to Carl last year following his
split from on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez. A source said at the time:
“Those close to Justin were concerned and reached out to the one
person he always listens to and really looks up to, his pastor, Carl
Lentz. “Justin was all for it. There was no resistance on his part to go
away for a couple of weeks for alone time, God time and some spiritual growth.”
Noel Gallagher
gets music questions
wrong at parent quiz nights
he former Oasis star - who has sons, Donovan, seven, and
four-year-old Sonny with wife Sara MacDonald and 15-yearold daughter Anais with first wife Meg Matthews - enjoys
attending the events but thinks there should be more questions
about Britpop to give him a chance. He said: “I’ve been to a couple
but the trouble is, I usually get the music questions wrong. “It’s
always, ‘What was Number 1 for 19 weeks in 1974?’ I dunno ... oh,
Mungo Jerry. Which is when everyone on the table looks at me, as
if to say, ‘I thought you were a musician? ‘Yeah, I am, but ask me
some questions about Britpop.’ “But the singer/songwriter is not
expecting his children to follow in his footsteps into the music
industry because he insists they “don’t care” what he does as a
career. He added: “My lads are more into ‘Star Wars’ than Jimi
Hendrix. None of my kdis care about what I do for a living. “They’ve
never know any different. It’s not like I was working at Kwik-Fit one
day and the next I won ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. “Maybe if One
Direction had released [Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds single]
‘In The Heat of the Moment’ it would have been my daughter’s
favourite song of all time ... but I’m her dad.”
Mark Ronson attacked
by a swarm of killer bees
he ‘Uptown Funk’ hitmaker was left terrified during an interview with BBC
Radio 1’s Jameela Jamil at a mansion in Hollywood after the pair were
forced to flee the cloud of deadly flying insects, which were attracted to a
nearby buffet. Jameela said: “We were doing an interview in this mansion in
Hollywood Hills. It was open air and there was a massive feast that we’d laid out
for Mark. “This huge cloud started coming towards us and we couldn’t work out
what it was. “It turned out to be the biggest swarm of killer bees that I’ve ever
seen. They descended on the buffet. “We had literally seconds to run into the
house and get behind the glass. “It was the most scared I’ve ever been. I didn’t
know what it was and then suddenly I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s killer bees!
Those are killer bees!’ “I just ran, food flew everywhere and I destroyed the
whole set. It was terrifying. We were both there and we just ran for it.” Jameela,
28, added she didn’t have time to concern herself with the 39-year-old producer’s safety and joked the speed of their swift exit would have been on par with
Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt’s. She told The Sun newspaper: “Neither of us tried
to save each other. It was every man for himself. It was like 500 bees. It was horrible. “I would never have left a man down, but we both turned into Usain Bolt
then.” However, the encounter didn’t turn out to be a total disaster after Mark
agreed to perform at Why Not People? - a music and events club set up by
Jameela for people with disabilities. She explained: “Mark came back within
about a minute saying, ‘Of course’. “I wouldn’t be friends with the kind of people
that would say no to this. You’d have to be the Devil.”
Bruce ‘transitioning
into a woman’
he ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star is said to be “happy” and
“in a great space” after a source close to the family confirmed
rumours he has decided to live as a female. The insider said: “Bruce
is transitioning into a woman. “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.” The former Olympian, 65 - who
sparked speculation he had started the transition after appearing with
longer hair and wearing makeup over the past few months - is said to
have recorded his own reality show documenting his progress, which will
air when he is ready to share his journey. The source said: “It will air when
he is ready to be open about his transition. “But he’s acting more and
more confident and seems very happy.” Bruce is taking his time with the
transition in order to give his family - which includes ex-wife Kris Jenner,
daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and sons Brody and Brandon Jenner time to adjust to the change. The insider told PEOPLE: “He’s being very
smart about and also respectful about his transition. Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family
has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life.” The
source added that “not everyone is 100 percent on board” with his decision to live as a woman, but it is clear, “everybody loves him.” Meanwhile,
Bruce’s stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West recently confessed that the
reality TV star was the “ the happiest [she’s] ever seen him”. The daughter
of Kris Jenner - who has sisters Khloe and Kourtney - said: “I think Bruce is
very happy, the happiest I’ve ever seen him...He’s our dad so we support
him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he’ll talk about
whatever he wants to talk about. I guess I’ll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.” The 34-year-old beauty
added she is sure Bruce will speak out about his “journey” when the “time
is right”. She said: “I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think
that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever
the time is right. I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.”
Val Kilmer
underwent emergency surgery
on a throat tumour
he 55-year-old actor, who has 23-year-old daughter Mercedes and 19-year-old
son Jack with ex-wife Joanne Whalley, is said to be recovering from the procedure in Los Angeles after being rushed to hospital on Monday night (26.01.15)
when he began bleeding from his throat. A law enforcement source claims paramedics received a 911 call from someone at the ‘Top Gun’ star’s home in Malibu and
brought him straight to UCLA Medical Centre in Santa Monica, where doctors performed the surgery. The insider told gossip website TMZ.com that the actor’s family
members have been upset because they think Val ignored the problem for some
time and allowed his condition to become more serious. The star previously told a
judge he was unable to speak because his tongue was swollen when he appeared in
a small claims court in relation to a dispute with his former landlord in October. The
‘Heat’ star appeared to be in good health when he attended an LA Lakers basketball
game with Jack on January 16, but was photographed with a scarf around his neck.
Kasabian think they would
be dead if they didn’t have
stable home lives
he ‘Eez-Eh’ rockers believe being settled with partners and children have
kept them going off the rails completely. Asked where they would be without partners and children, guitarist Serge Pizzorno - who has two sons
with girlfriend Amy - said: “Half of Kasabian would be in jail, the rest dead. I don’t
mean to be morbid, but I’m not joking.” And his bandmate, father-of-one Tom
Meighan, thinks the group would have had big problems if they had been
around during the excesses of the 1980s as they would have had no reason to
curb their partying. He said: “I’d be dead if it were the ‘80s, no question about it.
What with Mˆtley Cr¸e and Guns N’ Roses? Yeah I’d be dead. I’d crash and burn. I
mean it’s hard enough now when everyone gives a s**t about health and
appearance.” Though they lead quieter lives these days, Serge insists he still has
a “part of Lucifer” in him but ays his wilder streak is essential for his songwriting.
He told Loaded magazine: “I do have a part of Lucifer in me. But I wouldn’t be
able to write these tunes if sometimes I didn’t want to go to bed - ever. “Lucifer
comes out as soon as I’m a few beers in, and has influenced many decisions on a
night out. But I’m lucky. I think I had my path laid out for me and that’s to write
and produce tunes.” The 250th celebratory issue of Loaded - which features
Kasabian on the cover - is available to buy in both print and digital formats now.
Jamie Dornan
wants ‘more babies’
with Amelia Warner
he ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ star, who welcomed his first child
with his musician wife, 32, in 2013, admits they are eager to
give their 14-month-old daughter, Dulcie, a sibling soon.
Asked about his plans for the future, the 32-year-old actor said:
“I’m filming ‘The 9th Life of Louis Drax’. And, you know, my wife
and I want more babies.” Meanwhile, the heartthrob, who got
married in Somerset, England in April 2013, claims he is very
attracted to Amelia’s hands. He told the US edition of Glamour
magazine: “I’ve got a thing for great hands. My wife has my
favourite hands in the world. Being from Northern Ireland, I’m
programmed to enjoy stories, so I find it sexy if a woman can tell a
funny story. And I’ve always found talking to someone who’s
achieved something that I couldn’t attractive.” Jamie also has a
very close relationship with his older sisters, Jessica & Liesa, and
says they gave him kissing tips when he was younger. The ‘Fall’
star said: “In my first phase of kissing girls, my two sisters told me,
‘If you want to kiss a girl, you should ask rather than dive in as if
it’s your last meal.’ Which had probably been my approach until
that chat.”
