Russell Brand
Russell Brand wants to get married again.
The 'Arthur' actor says he is open to tying the knot for a second time even though his first marriage, to Katy Perry, ended in divorce after just 14 months.
He told E! News: 'I suppose [I will get married again], if I meet the right man or woman.'
Before marrying Katy in October 2010, Russell, 37, says he was so obsessed with sleeping around, it took over his life.
He said: 'I was once so devoted to 'sh**ging' I would forget to eat. I was like those people in China who die because they're so into their Xbox they stop having dinner. I focus on other things now, like meditation and yoga.
'I spend more time meditating than having sex. Isn't that good? It was unthinkable five years ago. I think the quality of the sh**ging has improved, though.
'Yoga gives you an understanding of chakras and energy and how to umbrella the G-spot.'
While he has been linked to a string of women since his marriage ended, Katy, 28, is in a serious relationship with singer John Mayer.lolz

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran

Karrueche Tran still loves Chris Brown.
The 24-year-old model dated the 'Don't Wake Me Up' hitmaker before he left her in October 2012 for ex-girlfriend Rihanna - who he was convicted of assaulting in 2009 - and because the pair have their clothing line, The Kill, together, Karrueche insists the pair will always have a close relationship.
Speaking to the February/March issue of Vibe magazine, she said: 'At the end of the day, [Chris] will always be a friend. We'll always care about each other. We won't allow that to interfere. Our business is business.
'I do care about him and I do love him. Family is very important to me, and I've always put it in my mind to remember that.
'He'll always be in my life because we have a line together.'
Karrueche remains positive about her life at the present - despite the difficult situation between herself, Chris and Rihanna - and has no intentions of settling down any time soon as she wants to focus on her career.
She continued: 'It's a lot going on [in my life] but it could be a lot worse. And that's how I look at life. I take it for what it is.
'I move forward, grow from it and at this point, that's what I'm doing. I'm not gonna sit and dwell and become consumed in that negativity because I could very much be that person, especially when things are so public and so thrown in my face.
'For me, I'd love to meet somebody and grow and build a foundation, but I don't want to even think about marriage right now. I can't even get a clothing line out.'

Romance facilitator Ne-Yo


Ne-Yo was 'facilitating the romance' on Valentine's Day.
The 'Closer' singer was performing at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last night (14.02.13) so unfortunately didn't get to share a traditionally romantic evening with his partner, Monyetta Shaw, although he didn't mind because it meant his songs could soundtrack other people's dates.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: 'My Valentine's Day was sound check, then a show, so I was facilitating the romance for other people, that took up most of the night. Then from there I had to get a plane to Houston [Texas] to do another show. Not that romantic this Valentine's Day. But as long as I can spark the romance for somebody else it's all good.'
The vocalist also offered his advice about the best ways a man can romantically surprise their loved one.
He said: 'The most romantic is always the one that requires the thought. A lot of people would assume that because the music industry has been good to me and I have a few pennies in the bank that I would shower somebody with expensive gifts. That's not how I operate.
'I feel like it is truly the thought that counts, it's about giving her that bottle of perfume that she loves without telling you what it's called. That shows you pay attention.'
In celebration of MasterCard's 15th year as partner of The BRIT Awards, Ne-Yo is giving music fans the chance to join him on his forthcoming tour. Enter the competition at

Kim Kardashian's divorce trial has been set for May 6.
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star split from basketball player Kris Humphries in November 2011 after just 72 days of marriage but they have so far failed to dissolve their union amicably and while Kim wanted a trial next month because of her pregnancy, the trial will begin in May, according to TMZ.
Kim is expecting her first child with rapper boyfriend Kanye West and is reportedly worried that the drawn out divorce could have 'long-term effects' on her baby.
The 32-year-old beauty was treated for severe abdominal pains recently, after her doctor rushed to her home in the middle of the night to examine her and warned her to reduce her stress levels.
Kim's mother and manager Kris Jenner also confirmed she has been told to relax.
She said: 'Kim has been going through this divorce for months. She has been under a lot of stress because of it and the doctors told her she had a really tough week and the stress could become a problem if she isn't careful.'....

RIP Goldie. Her label Kennis Music release official statement

Statement from the CEO of Kennis Music, Kenny Ogungbe pictured above with the late singer
“With a deep sense of loss, we announce the shocking death of our darling music star, Goldie Harvey. Goldie, 31, died on Thursday after she complained of a severe headache shortly after her arrival from the United States where she went to witness the Grammy Award. She was rushed from her Park View, Ikoyi, Lagos residence to her official hospital, Reddington, Victoria Island, Lagos, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival at exactly 7:30pm in the evening.
We consider this period a gloomy moment for us and the entire Nigerian music industry in view of the circumstance in which she passed away; the abundance of talent she exhibited in her short but eventful music career and the various opportunities her trip to the United States of America would have availed her. She is survived by her father, step- mother, brothers and sisters. We deeply sympathise with her family and fans all over the world and very grateful to all and sundry, especially, the vibrant Nigerian media for their concern and prompt reportage. We shall keep everybody informed as events unfold as we are devastated by the sudden loss.”
 Meanwhile, the remains of Goldie who hails from Ekiti State has been deposited at the mortuary of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos. Goldie represented Nigeria at the Big Brother Star Game in 2012. Her latest effort, she described as three nawti singles from her forthcoming African Invasion album are “Skibo”. “Miliki” and ” Got To Have It,” presently enjoying heavy rotations on radio and TV stations across the continent. Burial arrangements will be announced by the family. May her soul rest in peace.

Adieu Goldie!!!
