Meanwhile, the 30-year-old singer is believed to be keen to recruit Pharrell Williams, 41, so the pair can perform one of her tracks together.


Jolie in Derbyshire phrase phase

Angelina Jolie has been learning Derbyshire phrases.

The 39-year-old Unbroken director was reportedly fascinated to hear the films lead actor, Jack OConnell, who hails from Derby in east England, speaking in his countys dialect, the Daily Star Sunday newspaper reported.

One of the cast members shared: In between takes, she was fascinated to listen to Jack chatting away in what to her may as well have been a foreign language. Theres no doubt she picked up a few useful new phrases from him.

Jack, though, is believed to have gotten fed up by the constant attention placed on his accent. The cast member continued: Jack is a wonderful guy. But even though hed bite his tongue, you could tell he was ped off when folks mimicked his way of speaking or commented on how weird it was.


No time for lady loves

Will.i.am doesnt have time for relationships.

The Scream and Shout hitmaker admits that his jet-setting career, which saw him travel nearly two million miles last year, means he has to give up on love for the time being. He shared: I dont have time for girlfriends, and thats why I just keep busy. I keep going because thats what I want to do.

The 39-year-old rapper and businessman credits his ex for making things happen for him, despite the pair splitting up on the phone after nine years together.

He explained: Back in 1998, I said to my ex-girlfriend, Im just going on tour for a couple of months. And I never came back. We were together for nine years and we had to break up over the phone. Its not always easy, but it is what it is.

She was the one who helped all of this happen. We stayed in touch as friends. The track Heartbreaker [a Black Eyed Peas single featuring Cheryl Fernandez-Versini] is about her. I moved out of my mums house and straight in with her she was the girl who looked after me, and without her, the Black Eyed Peas wouldnt have happened, will.i.am said.


Cancer scare shook Sheen

Charlie Sheen was worried no one would show up to his funeral. The Anger Management star who has five children from his previous relationships has admitted that a cancer scare left him terrified.

He said: As soon as I was told I may have the Big C, my mind flashed forward. First, I pictured a scene where my kids were around my hospital bedside as I lay there dying. That kind of spooks the hell out of you, emotionally.

I didnt think about what treatment I might have or what pain I might be in or anything like that. I took it right to the end in my mind and wondered who would be at my funeral, mourning my passing.

The whole thing was absolutely terrifying.

The 49-year-old actor admitted it was a wake-up call after he was diagnosed with what doctors believed was a pre-cancerous growth in his throat. However, a second doctors opinion later revealed it was just a case of acid reflux a diagnosis that filled him with relief.
