Australian singer/actress Natalie Imbruglia is considering signing up for Internet dating as she is struggling to find a man.
The Torn hitmaker split from Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns in 2008 after five years of marriage, and has since been linked to stars including Friends actor David Schwimmer and Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill.
However, Imbruglia admits she has now been single for a long time and she is turning to online dating websites in a bid to find love.
She tells KIIS 1065's The Kyle and Jackie O Show, "(My love life is) shocking! I'm so single... I don't know (why)... I just want to meet (someone normal)... I'm starting to consider that I should go on (dating app) Tinder... Well where am I going to meet people?... My girlfriend in London has fallen madly in love on her third Tinder date and I'm incredibly jealous. And he's a really nice normal guy, a director... I've met him, he's really sweet and really normal... Everyone I know who is single is on Tinder in London."
When the presenters informed the star that most people who use the app are just looking for one-night stands, Imbruglia replies, "No! Is that what it is? Now I'm regretting bringing this up on the radio!... Ok you've turned me off now."
Kim Cattrall, Naomi Campbell and Kelly Rutherford joined a march in New York City on Friday (07Mar14) in support of International Women's Day. The Sex and The City star was joined by the British supermodel and the Gossip Girl actress for the United Nations Women for Peace's March To End Violence Against Women.
The stars, along with Sting's wife Trudie Styler, joined hundreds of other marchers in Manhattan, and Campbell gave a speech as the crowd gathered in front of the United Nations building.
The catwalk star was photographed wiping away tears during her emotional address, and later wrote in a post on Twitter.com, "Thank you (it) was an honour to be UN Women For Peace."
International Women's Day is held on Saturday (08Mar14) and stars including Natalie Imbruglia, Mariah Carey and Emeli Sande marked the occasion on Twitter.
Singer/actress Natalie Imbruglia is set to make her U.K. stage debut in a revival of Things We Do For Love next year (14). The Torn hitmaker will play Nikki Wickstead, a character who finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, in the production of the Alan Ayckbourn play, which will run at the Theatre Royal in Bath, England from 16 to 26 April (14), before embarking on a U.K. tour.
Imbruglia first hit the small screen in Australian soap opera Neighbours in 1992 and made her film debut in the 2003 comedy Johnny English, opposite Rowan Atkinson.
She took up drama classes earlier this year (13) to improve her acting talents.
Avatar star Sam Worthington has reportedly struck up a romance with top Australian model Lara Bingle. The pair grew close last month (Sep13) after attending the Cotton On Foundation's Global Citizen Concert in New York's Central Park alongside fellow Aussie Natalia Imbruglia, according to Sydney's Daily Telegraph.
They are now planning to meet up in their homeland.
A source tells the publication, "It is too early to say its serious but Sam is definitely coming to Sydney this week and will be catching up with Lara. They had a good connection and he really likes her."
Worthington has previously dated Natalie Mark and Crystal Humphries, while Bingle was engaged to cricketer Michael Clarke before they split in 2010.
The Torn hitmaker got her start on Australian soap Neighbours before finding fame as a pop star, and she has spent the last 12 months taking drama lessons in the hope of reviving her acting career.
She tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "I took a big break to focus on studying. I'll be doing pilots (TV episodes) and see what happens. I'm ready to dip my toe in Hollywood."
Imbruglia made her big screen debut in 2003 comedy Johnny English opposite Rowan Atkinson and has appeared in a handful of other less high profile pictures over the years.
The comic spent years battling a dangerous drug habit and an alcohol addiction, and he endured numerous gruelling stints in rehab as he fought to get clean.
Brand, who is currently on a stand-up tour of New Zealand, has now revealed he celebrated his 10-year anniversary of sobriety on Thursday (13Dec12).
In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, "10 years clean... Thanks for all your messages of love... Anyone can get clean, one day at a time."
Brand received a slew of supportive messages, including a post from Australian singer/actress Natalie Imbruglia, who told the star, "Congrats (sic), that's amazing! Well done."
Welcome back to The Voice. This season’s blind auditions are nearing their end — with their teams all but filled, who will be the first coach to recruit golden-throated conjoined triplets and claim they only count as one performer? (It’s inevitable, people.)
I’m only now realizing how interesting the game theory underlying the show can be. There’s no doubt that Adam and Christina win more battles for team members than Blake and Cee Lo do (I’d crunch the numbers, but I still haven’t figured out how to open Microsoft Excel), theoretically enabling Levine and Aguilera to assemble stronger teams overall. But there’s actually a sound argument to be made for joining one of the ugly stepsister teams instead — after all, you’d last longer against weaker peers. Just think: Would you rather be a small fish in a big pond, or a medium-sized fish in a comically undersized doll teacup? Let’s see what tonight’s contestants decide.
Though Sylvia Yacoub now calls Michigan home, the 19-year-old was born in Alexandria, Egypt. She explains that women face many obstacles in the Middle East — including her mother, an aspiring singer who was unable to pursue her own dreams of a performing career — but this is clearly false, because, um, Cleopatra?

Sylvia’s “Only Girl in the World” is bold and powerful, if occasionally kind of warbled. Even more than I like her voice, I love her wonderfully curly hair.
Sylvia’s Result: Team Christina
When I first lay eyes on teeny tiny IJ Quinn, my heart leaps at the thought that I might’ve found a roommate for Brendan Mahone in the Voice-edition Polly Pocket Playhouse of my dreams.
IJ (I’m assuming that stands for Indiana Jones) is a pig farmer with an unusually high, almost girlish voice. He takes on an appropriately androgynous song, “Virtual Insanity,” in a register that switches back and forth from masculine to feminine in a Michael Jackson-y style that kind of works for me.
Unfortunately, the judges aren’t impressed by IJ’s range. It’s back to the farm with him, where at least someone appreciates his talents.
IJ’s Result: Team Nobody
Carson Daly hand-delivers an invite to the blind auditions to Charlie Rey, who works on cars alongside his father in the family smog shop. Charlie goes full Bublé, crooning a pleasant (if slightly bland) version of “Home.” For reasons I can’t explain, Charlie’s performance drives the female members of the audience into hysterics, his voice having apparently instantaneously impregnated all of them.
Charlie’s Result: Team Blake
(Fun fact: this parenthetical marks my first and, fingers crossed, last mention of Christina Milian this season.)
Amanda Brown grew up listening almost exclusively to gospel — until, she says, the first time she heard Radiohead — and has performed as a background singer for Adele. Like Alexis Marceaux, Amanda has a Girls look about her, albeit in an alternate universe where someone had reminded text Lena Dunham that non-Caucasian women also exist.
Amanda’s fun, wild cover of the Zutons-via-Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie” wins her a spot on Team Cee Lo. (I think her fabulous neon lipstick and hammer pants helped, too.)
Amanda’s Result: Team Cee Lo
(REVELATION: CEE LO’S COCKATOO HAS A TWITTER ACCOUNT. I can die now; this world has no wonders left to show me.)
A veteran cruise ship entertainer, Yolanda Barber has been singing for more than four decades, though lately she’s had to moonlight (daylight?) as a school bus driver. At 55, she is this season’s oldest contestant — sorry, Lorraine Ferro.
Yolanda’s version of the ballad “Get Here” proves that hers is the controlled, expressive voice of a true diva. But despite her undisputed talent, the judges don’t bite, growing ever more conservative now that only a few spots on each team remain.

Boo, that doesn't seem fair. AARP, please cast Yolanda as some kind of spry, sexy spokesgrandma.
Yolanda’s Result: Team Nobody
If you, unlike me, are familiar with the band Hey Monday, you might recognize its lead singer, Cassadee Pope. Hey Monday previously toured with Fall Out Boy and the All-American Rejects, but now Cassadee’s ready for a solo career. Backstage, Carson pulls out some kind of prominently branded Sprint non-iPad to play her a good luck message from Pete Wentz, her former mentor.
In spite of Cassadee’s pageant looks, her tattoos and black nail polish let us know she’s Hard. (I actually think she’s totally adorable, and I appreciate her repping freckle-faced ladies like myself.) She showcases a beautiful pop voice with a slight edge on Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” — ONE OF THE FIRST SINGLES I EVER OWNED,Y’ALL — and earns a four-chair turnaround.

After each coach’s impassioned plea, Cassadee finally picks… Chr — Ad — Blake?! What an upset, sports fans, and with no replacement refs to blame. Blake is visibly shocked and delighted—the rest of his team is now the icing on the Cassadee Pope cake.
Cassadee’s Result: Team Blake
The Voice returns next Monday at 8. Until then, holla [well, tweet] at your boy [well, girl] on Twitter @mollyfitz.

The Gavin & Stacey funnyman exchanged vows with Julia Carey, the mother of his son Max, at luxury venue Babington House in front of guests including Doctor Who star Matt Smith, comedian David Walliams and Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia.
The couple arrived at the wedding by helicopter after attending the wedding of TV presenter Dermot O'Leary in Kent, England on Friday (14Sep12), and after the nuptials, they were serenaded by Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody.
Hip-hop group Rizzle Kicks also performed, but the highlight of the reception came when Corden's best man Ben Winston played a spoof video tribute which mocked Corden's days in a boyband called Insatiable.
The video reunited the original members of the defunct group and also featured Sir Paul McCartney, One Direction, Snow Patrol and Take That stars Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams, who all recorded a line from a song Corden penned as a youngster, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
After the ceremony, Niall Horan of One Direction took to Twitter.com to thank the couple for their hospitality, writing, "Incredible night last night! Thanks to (James Corden) and (Julia Carey) now Corden for having us! Had such a laugh!"
Corden and Carey, who were introduced by the comic's former roommate, actor Dominic Cooper, became engaged in 2010.
The stars confirmed plans to marry earlier this month (Jun12) following a three-year romance, and they made their official debut as an engaged couple as The Hunger Games actor was honoured at the gala in Century City, California.
Cyrus wore her diamond engagement ring as she accompanied her Aussie beau to the event, where he picked up the Film Breakthrough Award for his blossoming career.
AIF President Andrew Warne says, "We are delighted to honour Liam Hemsworth with the 2012 Breakthrough Award. The string of his upcoming films demonstrates an undeniable star power. From The Expendables 2... and Paranoia... to Arabian Nights... we believe this is only the beginning for (him)."
Actress Abbie Cornish and singer Natalie Imbruglia were among the other stars from Down Under who attended the prizegiving.
Sam Branson, who has previously been linked to singer Natalie Imbruglia, popped the question to his partner of seven years, Isabella Calthorpe, during a romantic trip to Madagascar earlier this month (Jun12).
A representative for the pair tells Britain's Daily Mail, "They both felt the time is right. They have no firm plans as yet, as they want to enjoy their engagement for a few months."
Sam's sister Holly wed on her father's Necker Island in the Caribbean last year (11) in front of British royals Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice as well as Kate Winslet, who is dating Branson's nephew Ned Rocknroll.
