Alexandra Burke

Hands up who thinks Alexandra Burke is set to become the new Leona Lewis? Well it won’t come as surprise then that the reality star has signed a £3.5 million record deal in the US. Alexandra has been snapped up by Epic for a five album deal. The 20-year-old star said: “I would love to crack the US. After seeing Coldplay take away the awards at the Grammys I was so inspired.” The US label signed the London singer following the success of Christmas single ‘Hallelujah’, and her Stateside launch is being orchestrated by the same team behind singing sensations Rihanna and Beyonce.  Alexandra will meet with music mogul and mentor Simon Cowell next month, to start planning her route to Leona Lewis-style global success. An insider told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “Epic think Alexandra can follow in Leona’s footsteps. The US market loves women with big voices – and Alexandra certainly has that. If she comes close to Leona’s success it will be a job well done.” If you’re itching to hear more from Alex, you’ll have to wait a while, we hear her album won’t even hit the sales floor until November. Will people even still remember Alex by then?

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher

We were a little surprised to hear that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have topped a list of worst-dressed celebrities. Sure they have their fair share of bloopers but are they really the worst dressed couple? According to PETA, yes they are. The couple have been slammed by animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for wearing fur and are currently at numbers one and two respectively in the voting for the organisation’s annual poll. A PETA spokesperson said: “She may be a cougar, but that’s not helping fur-loving Demi Moore in the eyes of animal lovers.” The organisation also criticises Ashton for wearing a coyote coat at the Sundance Film Festival. Other stars also in the running for worst dressed celebrity include ‘4 Minutes’ singer Madonna, Jessica Simpson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kanye West, Lindsay Lohan, the Olsen Twins, Mary J. Blige, and Kate Moss.
