The ‘Gothika’ actress – who is currently in a relationship with French actor Oliver Martinez – is perhaps being a little hard on herself, saying she’s “not the marrying kind”.

Neve revealed she used to live in a haunted house in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, with friends, and she would sometimes speak to a ghoul

Arctic Monkeys recorded their new album in California because they wanted to capture Nirvana’s drum sound.

Kanye West is to design a scarf range, based on his album images. The ‘Stronger’ rapper has been inspired by his 2010 album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, and why stop with scarves when there is a whole world of fashion out there waiting for Kanye’s magic touch. He is starting off small, as just 250 scarves will be made for Parisian company M/M based on five of the ‘Heartless’ singer’s designs

It is a remarkable feat, and Paul McGuinness, manager of the band – which features singer Bono, guitarist The Edge, bass player Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen – said the group are very proud of the record, and rightly so.
Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrated their three-year anniversary in the Bahamas, and got a little more than they expected.

A source said: “They bumped into Verne on a jaunt out one day
Christian Louboutin has collaborated with Bella Freud on a capsule collection of knitwear. The footwear legend has created a series of shoe sketches which the fashion designer plans to incorporate onto knitted dresses and jumpers she has designed. Christian said: “I have always loved Bella’s jumpers, so I couldn’t have been happier when she asked me to give her designs which, Bella thought, would look great once knitted.” Bella – who has been friends with Christian for over 20 years – explained she has always admired his sketches and has wanted to use them in her designs for some time.

U2’s next album will be a “futuristic” one.

He told Billboard.com: “Bono described the album as ‘futuristic’.
Penelope Cruz has revealed she is going to work with Woody Allen on a new film. The Spanish beauty – who starred in ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’, which was written and directed by Woody – was unfortunately not very keen on revealing many of the movie’s details. She told Entertainment Weekly: “I know what I’m doing next, but the thing is that I have to ask the director what I can say and what I cannot say.” Penelope – who gave birth to her first child in January – wouldn’t even let us know any details about the characters in the movie, but she could soon be eating pizzas and pasta in between scenes as Woody recently revealed his next film will be shot in Rome.
