Could Hugh Jackman be any more adorable? Well yes, now we hear the handsome hunk is planning to adopt another child. Hugh, who already has two adopted kids with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, is believed to be keen to expand his brood further. A source told the National Enquirer magazine: “Hugh is a big believer in adoption – not just personally, but from a world view of extending help to parentless children. They are adopting another child now, and plan to welcome a fourth into their family down the road. It has become their mission.”

50 Cent wants to duet with Bette Midler. We actually couldn’t imagine a stranger pairing even if we tried. Bette says the gangsta rapper is so desperate to collaborate with her, he will consider singing 1920′s jazz. Midler said: “Little Jewish lady and the great big rapper. He’s such a doll. I love him. He’s gorgeous. I was hoping we’d sing songs from the Depression, but he’s so young that I don’t think he knows any of them. I’m going to have to check things out and see what he feels like singing.” The 63-year-old singer and the 33-year-old hip-hop star met when Midler’s environmental group the New York Restoration Project decided to build a public garden in his childhood neighbourhood of Queens.

Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury Festival

All you festival fans, listen up, we have news for you. Maximo Park will launch this year’s Glastonbury festival. The ‘Graffiti’ rockers have been unveiled as the first act to play the new William Green area of the site on Thursday June 25th – the day before the music event officially opens.  Singer Paul Smith admits the group – who will also perform on the festival’s second day – are delighted to have been chosen to open the new stage. He said: “Glastonbury’s still a festival that takes chances, as proven by Jay-Z’s triumphant appearance last year, so it’s an honour for us to be the first band on in such intimate surroundings. It’s also an excuse to hang out and watch loads of brilliant music until we play the Other Stage on Saturday.”
