Britney Spears

Britney Spears

It seems Britney’s comeback is paying off…literally. Ms Spears has splashed out $8.9 million on a new home. The ‘Womanizer’ singer is already in the process of moving into her new Calabasas home – which is just outside Los Angeles – and has been spotted taking toys and other items belonging to her sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two, into it. The 27-year-old star confirmed on her Twitter account: “I just took my babies to our new home, and they loved it! I can’t wait to move in.” Property agents confirmed the house, which is in The Oaks community, is priced at $8.9 million – a reduction in its original cost. Britney is in the process of selling her six-bedroom, six-bathroom Los Angeles home for $7.195 million. The house is 7,500 sq ft and boasts a wet bar, library, den, a swimming pool, spa, arbour, three garages, high ceilings, stone and mosaic tiled floors. It was also the same house where Britney had her famous breakdown. Time to move on and move up, eh Britney?!

Amy Winehouse on Holiday

Amy Winehouse on Holiday

Amy Winehouse has been stealing alcohol from her hotel in St. Lucia, and here we were thinking a nice holiday would do her the world of good. The troubled singer has resorted to desperate measures after resort staff promised her management they wouldn’t serve her drinks at the lavish destination, where Amy is planning to stay for another two months. A source said: “We keep catching her crawling past bars or hiding behind chairs. She grabs guests’ drinks and runs off like a squirrel with a nut.” Amy – who begins her day with a yoga class – is also said to be begging fellow holidaymakers to get alcoholic drinks from the bar to take to her room but is infuriating guests with her bizarre behaviour. One guest said: “One minute she is very pleasant saying, ‘Alright darling’ and talking to people and having photos taken. Then next she is throwing things and swearing her head off.” Oh dear, Amy how about trying to stay off the alcohol and just concentrate on getting better?!

The Zutons

The Zutons

So who else has Amy been upsetting? The Zutons for one. The band has been dropped by their record label. The ‘Valerie’ hitmakers have been dropped by Deltasonic after bosses at the label, which is part of Sony, were left unimpressed by sales of their last album ‘You Can Do Anything’. A source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Expectations were unrealistically high when The Zutons came back from Los Angeles with their third album. ‘Valerie’ was being pumped out of every stereo around the world and they were being totally overshadowed by a song from their previous release.” ‘Valerie’ was the second single from the group’s second album, ‘Tired Of Hanging Around’, and reached number nine in the UK singles chart. Although it is the band’s biggest hit, it achieved worldwide success when Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson released a version.
