Amy Winehouse's Quincy tribute

Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson are reuniting to record a song.

The pair fell out when recording sessions for a proposed James Bond theme went sour - which resulted in Jack White and Alicia Keys providing the opening music to 'Quantum of Solace' - but have since settled their differences and are planning to record a track for a tribute album to Michael Jackson producer Quincy Jones.

A source said: "It's going to be explosive stuff. Amy first met Quincy backstage at the Nelson Mandela show in Hyde Park in June.
"He knew who she was and she was so thrilled to meet him. Her performance clearly impressed him - he was raving about her. This is just the opportunity she needs to show the world she has still got it."

Other stars rumoured to be appearing on the album include Mariah Carey, Usher and John Mayer.

Last week, Amy made a shambolic appearance at London's Berkeley Square Ball - an annual charity event in aid of The Prince's Trust.

She was attending the event to support her 12-year-old goddaughter Dionne, who was performing in a bid to launch her music career.
The troubled singer was supposed to sing backing vocals during Dionne's performance, but only managed to mumble a few words.

Later, she reportedly hit out at a fan who asked for an autograph.

She was heard sobbing: "This isn't a life - it's a mess. Life can't go on. I can't do this any more."

Madonna's A-Rod dinner

Madonna and Alex Rodriguez were spotted enjoying dinner together earlier this week.

The singer and the baseball player - who were rumoured to be having an affair earlier this year - sat in "an alcove-like table" at the back of New York eatery Dos Caminos Third Avenue on Tuesday (30.09.08).

A source told Usmagazine.com: "They seemed very close."
While Madonna was initially blamed for Alex's divorce from wife Cynthia, the 50-year-old star has always denied the claims - insisting she is happy in her seven-year marriage with husband Guy Ritchie.

She said in a statement earlier this year: "My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage.

"I have learned over the years not to take accusations and the many false reports about me very seriously. I also appreciate how fiction and fact seem to be perceived as one and the same by people who read both newspapers and the internet."

Kate's golden new look

KATE MOSS has been immortalised in a solid gold statue - in a beyond belief bendy yoga move.

The supermodel’s metal effigy, Siren, is worth a whopping £1.5million and shows Kate's body so contorted, it seemingly defies the natural limitations of human limbs.

Artist MARC QUINN’s work will on display at the British Museum’s Statuephilia exhibition in London from tomorrow.

Bad hair day? Britney Spears hides her lank locks under a shawl

Britney Spears appeared unusually camera shy as she arrived at LAX airport yesterday.

Looking pale and tired, the 26-year-old singer left the airport with a white shawl draped over her long blonde locks. Perhaps was trying to cover her rather greasy-looking hair.

It was a far cry from how she had looked just the night before when she went to dinner at Soho House in New York, looking fantastic in an electric blue dress.

But if she was hoping the new shawl, by New York label Minnie Rose, would prevent her from being recognised she was sadly mistaken as she was greeted by a wall of photographers as she left the terminal. (We assume the shawl was new as the label is still on.)

It's no surprise really that Britney's looking a little bit pooped. She's been staying in New York since Sunday where she has been promoting her new single Womanizer.

While in the Big Apple, she also saw a Broadway show called The Heights, visited several stores and dropped into a school in The Bronx where she donated a $10,000 (£5,000) cheque to its music programme and signed autographs for delighted pupils.

Over the last few days, the mum-of-two looked healthy and groomed, especially on Wednesday night when she dined out at Soho House in a stunning blue dress.

But it all must have taken its toll because when she arrived at JFK on Thursday to catch her flight back home to LA she looked worn out.

No wonder she wanted to go undercover when she touched down at LAX.

'I'm really happy with Samantha... and I want to adopt a child', says Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan may only be 22, but she's already started making plans to adopt a child.

The reformer Hollywood hellraiser insists she is happier than ever since finding love with DJ Samantha Ronson and is looking forward to the future.

After experiencing a difficult childhood and past few years, Lohan believes her life experience would make her a good mother.
She tells the latest edition of Marie Claire magazine: 'At some point, I want to adopt a kid as well.

'A child in need or a newborn from another country. I’m not sure yet.'

Lohan would be the latest in a long list of Hollywood stars who have adopted, including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, Sharon Stone, Sheryl Crow, Calista Flockhart and Mia Farrow.

After months of rumours, Lohan finally confirmed she was in a relationship with Ronson - sister of artist/producer Mark Ronson - last month.

Speaking to the magazine, a defiant Lohan declared: 'People can think what they want. I'm really happy and that's all that matters.'

Some have credited Ronson with helping Lohan get her life back in order after stints in rehab, a spell in jail as well as being sentenced to community service following her driving under the influence arrests.

While Lohan acknowledges Ronson has been a great help in her life, she insists it is her alone who has dealt with her problems.

She said: '(Samantha's) a great person. But I think that anything that's changed in my life is because of me. I've gone through it and I've had to deal with it and I've made the decision to move forward. So, yeah, she's a great person.'

The couple are so happy together they are reportedly looking at buying an apartment together in New York.

Earlier this week, the couple were photographed looking loved up on holiday in Mexico.

Scarlett 'ties the knot' in secret

Hollywood starlet Scarlett Johansson has married actor Ryan Reynolds in a hush-hush ceremony in Canada, according to reports.

The couple were determined to keep the wedding as low-key as possible, opting for a small service in a remote wilderness resort outside Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday.

Guests included the bride's mother, Melanie Sloan, and her brother, Adrian Johansson, Scarlett's representative told People magazine.
The actress, 23, announced their engagement on May 5, by showing off a £16,500 three-carat diamond ring at the Met Costume Gala Ball in New York.

She started dating Reynolds, 31, at the start of last year shortly after he parted from his then fiancee, singer Alanis Morissette.

At the beginning of September, Scarlett vowed that they would not sell photos to a magazine and described lavish celebrity weddings as "awful".

"I'm a private person, so, obviously, I'm pretty sure our wedding will be as private as possible."

Johansson has also said she was excited about her upcoming wedding because she was keen to become an honorary Canadian.

It had been widely reported she planned to postpone the ceremony until after the United States presidential election, which takes place at the beginning of November.
