Gwyneth Paltrow has taken her passion for unusual beauty treatments to a new level by undergoing a bizarre therapy involving bee stings. The Iron Man star has revealed she used "bee venom therapy" to treat an injury, which involved being stung by a live insect, but Paltrow is convinced the odd procedure worked as her problem subsequently healed up.
She tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "The craziest treatment I've tried is one where I was stung by a live bee. It's called apitherapy and it's apparently been used since Egyptian times to promote healing."
Paltrow is known for her love of unusual and holistic treatments and has previously hailed the benefits of practises including Chinese cupping therapy, macrobiotic diets and wrinkle-busting laser facials.
Late Bee Gees star Robin Gibb excluded his love child from his will so the little girl will not receive any of his $39 million (£26 million) fortune. The singer, who died last year (12), fathered a daughter, Snow, now four, with his housekeeper Claire Yang in 2008 and he bought her a house in Oxfordshire, England before he lost his battle with cancer.
It has now emerged that Yang will be allowed to keep the house, but neither she nor her little girl were included in Gibb's will, meaning his $39 million fortune will be be handed to his widow, Dwina.
The estate includes Gibb's U.K. property as well as his share of the royalties from the Bee Gees back catalogue.
The singer's grown-up children Robin-John, Spencer and Melissa will each receive a cash payment, and they will split his assets following Dwina's death, according to documents obtained by Britain's Daily Mail.
Yes, we admit it, we got a little excited when we found out that Destiny's Child was reuniting. Can you blame us?
When Beyonce teased new music on her official Facebook page a couple days ago, we thought it might be just that, a tease. But only days later we already have the girl group's first new single in eight whole years, "Nuclear."
The song — which was produced by hip hop producer Pharrell Williams (also of The Neptunes and N.E.R.D fame) — is the last song on the upcoming Love Songs album, set for release on January 29. The other 13 tracks include:
1. "Cater 2 U'
2. "Killing Time"
3. "Second Nature"
5. "Now that She's Gone"
6. "Brown Eyes"
9. "If You Leave" (featuring Next)
12. "Say My Name" (Timbaland Remix)
What do you think of this smooth and sultry single? Do you like the slow jam, or are you too hoping some of the other singles give us the catchy beats of the girls from the past?
Have a listen below and tell us what you think of the song Bee, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are set to play at the Super Bowl halftime show early next month.

Bee Gees' co-founder Robin Gibb has "contracted pneumonia and is in a coma," according to a statement on his website. "We are all hoping and praying that he will pull through."
The news comes less than six months after the 62-year-old singer suffered abdominal pains, later to find out he had liver and colon cancer. He was thought to have made a recovery. Especially troubling is his twin brother and fellow Bee Gees member, Maurice, died in 2003 after falling ill with intestinal problems that also started out as stomach pains. He was only 53-years-old.
Fans from around the world have been leaving messages of support and wishes for a full recovery on the singer's Facebook page.
