Pop star Miley Cyrus has been caught on camera smoking and dancing during a wild flight on a private jet. The Wrecking Ball hitmaker is currently travelling across Europe on her Bangerz tour, and new video footage shows she is determined to have fun inbetween shows.
In several clips uploaded to Instagram.com on Monday (02Jun14), the singer is seen on what appears to be a private plane while performing a series of silly raps. She is also shown dancing with a man as well as smoking a suspicious-looking cigarette.
The singer is believed to have been travelling from Finland to Denmark, where she is set to perform a show on Wednesday (04Jun14).
Police in Los Angeles have recovered Miley Cyrus' stolen Maserati sports car. The pop superstar, who is on tour in Europe, became the victim of a burglary over the weekend, when thieves made off with her brand new Quattroporte and a haul of jewellery.
The car was spotted in Simi Valley, California on Monday (02Jun14) and cops are now dusting the vehicle for fingerprints.
TMZ.com reports the car was not damaged.
British actress/model Kelly Brook has sparked speculation she is a married woman after mentioning her "husband" in a cryptic online post. The Piranha 3D star dropped a number of hints about her relationship status in a series of cryptic messages posted on Instagram.com on Friday (30May14).
In the messages, which were posted while Brook was onboard a Eurostar train between London and Europe, she called her partner David McIntosh her "husband" and mentioned "wedding celebrations".
She wrote, "Look how happy my husband looks... #Eurostar #France #WeddingCelebrations."
Brook tagged two friends, who are due to marry on Saturday (31May14), in the post, suggesting she and McIntosh are on their way to celebrate their pals' nuptials, but she did not explain why she called her fiance "husband".
The pictures she posted show the couple smiling and hugging on the train, and enjoying a lunch of pastries, chocolate, beer and cheese.
The couple became engaged in March (14) after a whirlwind romance.
Singer Lana Del Rey has brushed off rumours she scored a big payday when she agreed to perform at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's pre-wedding party on Friday (23May14), insisting she would never charge friends for her time. Rapper West asked the Summertime Sadness star to stage a surprise set for his bride-to-be at the couple's celebratory dinner at the Palace of Versailles, and the special performance reportedly brought Kardashian to tears.
Reports suggested Del Rey earned at least six figures for the three-song gig, while one article alleged she had pocketed a whopping $2.8 million (£1.75 million) for the show.
However, the singer set the record straight on Wednesday (28May14) as she arrived back in Los Angeles from Europe, telling TMZ.com, "It's not true... I would never let a friend pay me to sing at a wedding."
Del Rey has a special place in the couple's hearts - West hired an orchestra to perform her track Young & Beautiful when he proposed at AT&T Stadium in San Francisco, California on Kardashian's 33rd birthday last year (13).
West and his reality TV star bride tied the knot in Florence, Italy on Saturday (24May14).
Celebrated writer/poet Maya Angelou has died at the age of 86. The beloved star passed away on Wednesday morning (28May14), just days after cancelling an appearance at an upcoming tribute event due to health troubles. Angelou was due to be honoured by officials at the Major League Baseball organisation at the MLB Beacon Awards Luncheon on Friday (30May14), but she was too ill to attend the event in Texas.
Reports suggest she died in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on Wednesday. Angelou started her career as an entertainer, touring Europe in a production of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, and recording an album called Calypso Lady in 1957. She also appeared opposite James Earl Jones in an off-Broadway production of racially-charged drama The Blacks in 1961.
However, Angelou became well known for her writing work and as a vocal civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, including the acclaimed 1969 book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, about her early life and the troubles in America's Deep South, as well as essays and poetry. She also racked up a list of writing credits on TV shows and movies, blazing a trail for black female writers/directors by penning the screenplay for 1972's Georgia, Georgia, and directing 1996 film Down in the Delta starring Alfre Woodard and Wesley Snipes. Her acting career included a turn in well-known TV mini-series Roots and an appearance in Tyler Perry's 2006 comedy Madea's Family Reunion.
Angelou worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X during America's Civil Rights movement, and was honoured for her contribution to society with more than 30 honorary doctorates from universities across the U.S. She was also feted with a Pulitzer Prize nomination for her poetry book Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie, a Tony Award nod for her role in 1973 play Look Away, and three Grammy Awards for spoken word albums.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton presented her with the National Medal of Arts in 2000 and current President Barack Obama handed her the country's highest civilian honour, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 2011.
Sky Ferreira is battling worsening health troubles on tour after she was struck down by a sinus infection, a hand injury and an allergic reaction - all within four days. The singer has been busy promoting her album Night Time, My Time, while also supporting Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz world tour and playing a number of shows in Europe.
Ferreira was hospitalised with a nasty leg injury while on the road with Cyrus in February (14), and she has now told fans she is facing further health troubles.
She writes on Twitter.com on Wednesday (28May14), "I've managed to have a sinus infection & completely f**k up my right hand & have a crazy allergic reaction within 4 days. I love touring."
Ferreira still plans to perform at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain on Wednesday (28May14).
Liza Minnelli has cancelled her upcoming summer (14) shows in Europe due to health problems. The 68-year-old Cabaret star has axed a planned concert at London's Royal Albert Hall in July (14), as well as three more dates in France and Holland, on doctors' orders.
A statement posted on Minnelli's website reads, "Liza Minnelli's physicians have advised her not to perform or travel for long periods of time because of a medical condition. As a result, her concerts in Europe, which were scheduled for July, have been cancelled. We are discussing rescheduling dates at an appropriate time. Liza wants her fans to know she is devastated not to be able to perform right now but will see them soon."
No more details about Minnelli's health crisis have been revealed, but she is said to be resting at her home in New York City.
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry fears the band will never record another full-length album thanks to the commercial failure of their 2012 release Music From Another Dimension! The record debuted at number five on the music charts and none of the four singles released, including Legendary Child and What Could Have Been Love, made it onto the Billboard Hot 100.
While Perry insists the rockers will continue to make new music, he admits they're wary about putting out another album.
He tells RollingStone.com, "I'm obviously disappointed (our last album) didn't work out the way it was supposed to. But on the other hand, once a record is out, it's out forever..."
He continues, "Our contract to Sony is fulfilled and we're free agents right now. We're trying to figure out what that means. I don't even know if making new albums makes sense anymore. Maybe we'll just release an EP every six months. I don't know what the future looks like."
Aerosmith are currently on tour in Europe.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian kicked off the celebrations ahead of her wedding to Kanye West by gathering her female friends and family members for a special bachelorette party in Paris, France on Thursday night (22May14). The socialite is preparing to marry her rapper fiance in Europe on Saturday (24May14), and she has been joined in the French capital by her loved ones, including her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe and Kourtney, in the run up to the big day.
Kardashian took to Twitter.com on Thursday night to share pictures of her "last supper", a gathering of her female friends and family members at a restaurant in the city, writing, "I'm so lucky! I have the best friends in the whole wide world! #ParisNights #LastSupper."
During the evening, the group also visited some of the city's most famous landmarks. They were pictured in front of Le Louvre gallery's famous glass pyramid and at the Eiffel Tower, where several members of the Kardashian clan were snapped riding the iconic carousel close to the landmark.
After the night out, Kardashian paid tribute to her pals, writing, "No matter what these girls are always there!"
Speculation is rife over where the brunette beauty will exchange vows with West - many reports point towards Paris as the location for the nuptials, while the couple is also rumoured to have hired out a historic venue in Florence, Italy.
Christine Mcvie has confirmed she's a full-time member of Fleetwood Mac again after conquering her fear of flying. The keyboard player and singer quit the band in 1998 and became a virtual recluse in England, but she reunited with her former bandmates onstage at the O2 Arena in London last year (13) and, at the Ivor Novello Awards in London on Thursday (22May14), she announced she has rejoined as a permanent member.
The 70 year old is planning to return to the studio with Stevie Nicks and her other bandmates to record new material and she told reporters, "I can announce that I have rejoined Fleetwood Mac. We are in the process of recording another album which should be out next year and we will tour Europe."
McVie, who picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Ivor Novellos, also revealed she's no longer nervous about travelling overseas thanks to a therapist who "taught me how to fly".
