Ricky Martin tells us all what we already knew
Singer Ricky Martin has finally come clean about his sexuality and admitted that he is a proud gay man. Hallelujah! The flexible-hipped one posted a message on his website saying, “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” Ricky had always swerved questions about his sexuality in the past, but in the message he credited his two sons as helping him change his mind. “To keep living as I did would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with,” he explained. “Enough is enough. Today is my day, this is my moment.” Bravo Ricky!
Mark Owen to stay in rehab over Easter
Take That star Mark Owen is choosing to remain in rehab over the Easter break, despite being told he can leave any time he wants. The pint-sized star entered rehab to battle his problems with booze after it emerged he’d cheated on wife Emma on more than 10 occasions. According to friends, Mark is responding well to treatment, but he wants to stay in for another week to give him the best chance of proving to Emma that he’s tackling his issues. She has yet to visit him in rehab. One pal said last night, “He wants to Emma he’ll do everything he can to try and patch things up.”
Russell Brand is a “bridezilla” says Katy Perry
Somehow we can’t picture Russell Brand flicking through a wedding magazine and deciding how many tiers to have on his cake, but according to fiancée Katy Perry that’s exactly what he’s been doing. “He's like a freak, man,” Katy told People. “You should see - he's always, like, buying bride magazines. Every time we go out for breakfast he's like, 'Can we just stop and get a bride magazine?’ He’s a total bridezilla.” Katy didn’t reveal too many details about her and Russell’s Big Day, but said they both want it to “mean something”. We actually cannot wait to get a look at the wedding outfits.
New cider advert pokes fun and Jordan and Alex
With the price of cider increasing this summer by up to 10p per bottle, companies have to try even harder than usual to persuade punters to buy their product – and one firm is using Katie Price and Alex Reid to promote theirs. Blackthorn cider have made an ad that asks Brits what they dislike most out of things like socks with sandals and orange people. To illustrate the “orange people”, they have picked an image of Jordan and Alex kissing in a park with the caption “Disturbed by dodgy tans?”. They must be brave people over at Blackthorn, because Katie Price allegedly hasn’t been asked permission and a source says she’ll be “furious” about the advert. Good thing there are plenty of orange people around as back-up…
