Alexandra Burke

Alexandra Burke

Have three months really passed since Alexandra Burke won ‘The X Factor’? Rather than her musical talents, it seems all we read about Alex these days is her personal life. Now we hear Akon is to produce Alexandra’s first album. Akon - who is currently penning tracks for Michael Jackson – is excited about working with the ‘X Factor’ winner and hopes she will be as successful as Leona Lewis, who has taken the US by storm following her win on the British TV talent show in 2006. He said: “I’ve had calls to work with Alex and I’m going to do it. I love ‘The X Factor’ and I love helping to break new artists. To me, it’s one of the most enjoyable and important aspects of my job.” Akon is so confident about Alexandra’s potential he has agreed to work with her before hearing her sing. He explained to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “I haven’t seen any of Alex’s performances on the show but then I hadn’t seen any of Leona’s before I worked with her. I’m taking people’s word on how good Alex is, like I did with Leona. It was a really refreshing experience working with Leona – she’s so quiet and calm.”

Julia and Clive Owen

Julia and Clive Owen

There are many things we think about the delicious Clive Owen, however being a ‘funny lover’ just isn’t one of them. Julia Roberts said that when she’s in bed with Clive she just can’t stop laughing. She admits the pair got into trouble while shooting raunchy scenes for new movie ‘Duplicity’ because they couldn’t stop laughing. When asked if she enjoyed getting close to the hunky actor, Julia told US TV show ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “We did laugh the whole time. We’ve got a very similar sense of humour. The poor director, Tony Gilroy, had to have a lot of patience. The steamier it got the funnier we found it.” Oh what we wouldn’t give to swap places with Julia, and I don’t think we would waste our time laughing.
