You’re up for seven awards at the Grammys, everything is looking pretty rosy for you… but that’s not quite the case for Coldplay who are going to be sued at the Grammys. Joe Satriani has accused the band of plagiarism after claiming their recent single ‘Viva La Vida’ was a based on his song ‘If I Could Fly’ and has hired a legal team to serve Coldplay papers during the awards ceremony on Sunday (08.02.09).  Satriani is sure the group will attend the Los Angeles event because they have been nominated for seven awards. It has been reported Satriani’s lawyer Howard King has hired a team to “dog the band everywhere they go” so the papers can be served personally. So what do the band think? Drummer Will said: “It’s so far-fetched and ridiculous. But that’s about all we can say at the moment. We’re waiting to see what’s happening but it’s frustrating and annoying and totally unfounded.”

Oh dear what has Tom Cruise done now? He’s apparently alienated all his Brazilian fans by speaking Spanish. The Hollywood actor didn’t realise the national language spoken in Brazil is Portuguese during a recent trip to the country to promote movie ‘Valkyrie‘. Tom reportedly addressed a press conference in Rio de Janeiro with the Spanish words “hola” (hello) and “gracias” (thank you), according to Brazilian gossip website Glamurama. As well as getting his languages in a twist, Tom’s knowledge about dancing is also believed to have got him into trouble. Tom said the Tango was one of the reasons he fell in love with Brazil, even though the Latin dance originated in Argentina. Come on Tom do your research and get it right next time, or at least pay someone to do it for you!
