I'm a Celebrity

Former 'X Factor' contestant and Local singer, Stacey Solomon is reportedly set to fly out to the Australian jungle to take part in ITV's reality TV Show I'm a Celebrity Get me Out of Here. In this show celebrities have to camp and compete against each other in Bushtucker Trials - where they can win meals for the rest of the group. Some of the bush tucker trails are not very nice including eating crocodile tongues and standing in a box full of insects, snakes and spiders! I would hate that. TV bosses reportedly decided to sign up Stacey - who came third in the last season of the 'X Factor' - because they are a fan of her ditzy personality. A source has said "Stacey is a great signing. Everyone loved her on 'The X Factor' last year because she just gets so over-excited. She'll be amazing in the jungle." Stacey is set to earn £50,000 for her appearing in the show. Other people who have signed for the show are Sprinter Linford Christie, TV presenter Gail Porter and Lizzie Cundy and reports say that former Spice Girl Mel B may be joining them. 'I'm A Celeb...' will air on ITV next month and will be hosted by presenting duo Ant and Dec. So keep a look out for that.

Cheryl Cole promises Girls Aloud Reunion

Though there has been rumours of a rift between the members of Girls Aloud, X-Factor Jude and band member Cheryl Cole have denied these and have said the band will be getting back together. She has said "We have a three album deal with the record label - we signed it before we took a break. I actually think this break is really important for us as people. Forget artists and whatever we're doing as that, just for us as women. We've been together since I was 19, I remember Nicola's 17th birthday when we'd just got together. We're all young women now and we were living and breathing each other. It was intense and it's been nice to learn about yourself as I felt we'd just morphed into one person." We needed this space to grow. Nadine's releasing her first album so she needs that time. So we kind of all just need a bit more time." Despite reports that Nadine Coyle has chosen not to invite her band mates to her upcoming wedding, it seems the girls will still be reuniting. Cheryl was unable to set a date for the eagerly awaited Girls Aloud comeback, but that she is 'looking forward' to working with the girls again and also added "The strange thing for us is that it doesn't seem like two minutes since we were together, because we still see each other regularly. We haven't split up and we will get back together - it's just a case of as and when." She also claimed that she was 'sad' to hear the allegations that Nadine had dismissed plans to reunite with the Girls. Cheryl revealed: "We haven't been seen together but she lives in LA so it would be pretty hard to. I see the others on a daily basis so for us it's not weird."

Willow Smith

Will Smith's 9 year old daughter is the youngest rap artist that I know! There may be younger but she the youngest that I have personally heard of. Following in her dad's footsteps she had appeared in a few films such as 'I am Legend'. In ??? she also released a single called Whip my Hair. Trust me if you heard it and didn't know her age, you would not think she is 9! But not only has she achieved all of that in her short life span, last month she signed up with Jay-z's record label Roc Nation! The nine year old hung out with the rap legend and has said "It felt like all the hard work paid off, mostly that, Like all the hard work that I've done, like recording Whip My Hair- it's paid off." Jay-z himself has said: "I believe in superstars. I believe in big records and superstars, and I think she has both." Willow has admitted her favourite number- which is 44- also relates to the American rapper and his missus. The young star explained; "I was sitting at the piano, and I just picked it at random, I thought, 'Taylor Swift has one, why not me? It turned out Jay-Z's birthday was December 4, Beyoncé's birthday is September 4, and their anniversary has something to do with a 4, too." The music video for Whip My Hair, was released this week and it shows Willow dipping her hair into some paint and whipping it around to decorate a white room.

Taylor Swift Tour

Taylor Swift has announced she will be coming to the UK to do a 3 date arena tour this March. She will also be releasing her new album called 'Speak Now' in November.

The 'Fearless' tour was so much fun and even more unforgettable than I ever imagined, and I can't wait to get back out and play my new music from Speak Now!

Beyonce pregnant?

This week it was reported that Beyonce was pregnant with husband and rapper Jay-Z's baby. The couple got married in a candlelit ceremony in April 2008 and this would have been thier first child. A US website said they "learned from a rock solid source, that the pop superstar's expecting, is doing fine and resting (for now)." The site also said that Jay-z is said to be "extremely happy to be having his first child with Bey." Apperently a source had also said to a US magazine B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn't ready to be a mother just yet. She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again." The couple have always tried to keep their relationship out of the public eye however Beyonce has always spoken publically about her desire to have a family. She has previously said "I'm very loyal. I want a whole bunch of kids - but after I've got certain things out of my system first." However her mum Tina Knowles has denied these pregancy rumours. She appeared on US chatshow and said "No, no. It's not true. Not right now. With all the rumours, by now I should have about five or six grandchildren." She also joked that "The truth is that it's me, not Beyonce, that's pregnant"
