Timberlake promises mixture on new album

Justin Timberlake has revealed more details about his new album

The 35 year-old singer, who has just dropped his first solo track, Can't Stop The Feeling!, in three years, has revealed he is planning to "mix it up" with his music this time around.

Speaking on the Capital London Breakfast Show yesterday, he shared: "It's an exciting time, I'm writing a lot of music right now ... I don't want to put anything out there that I have to keep promises on, but it's moving along nicely with Pharrell, the usual suspects and the Swedes - I'm kind of mixing it up this time."

The SexyBack hitmaker is thrilled to be the executive music producer for the soundtrack to upcoming animation movie Trolls - which he is also voicing a character for - but admits he was worried he had underestimated the workload at first.

He said: "When I was first brought in as the lead opposite Anna [Kendrick] in Trolls, Jeffrey [Tambor] pulled me aside and said, 'I want you to do all the music. Apart from some existing music we're using for comedic purposes with some covers.' So he pulled me in and said, 'I want you to be executive music producer' or some silly title. My first reaction was, 'wow, really cool' and then on the drive home I was like, 'This seems like a lot of work.'"

Kim cools to food

Kim Kardashian West says food doesn't "excite" her in the way that it did before.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who has lost an impressive 60 pounds since giving birth to her youngest child, five month-old son Saint, said she is very careful with her dieting and rarely craves sweet treats.

She said: "I feel like I've been so good dieting that nothing excites me the way it did, except for beignets from New Orleans - and powdered sugar doughnuts, which I'm obsessed with. My favourite drink ... there has gotta be something exciting that I love ... I'm not that big on alcohol, but it's fun and in Paris there is this restaurant called Ferdi and they have this strawberry fruity drink. I think if I could have anything and not worry about the calories, it would be a pina colada with fresh strawberries."

The 35 year-old television personality, who also has two year-old daughter North with her husband Kanye West, is reportedly leaving her family and friends frustrated because she has banned them from talking about food in front of her.

A source shared: "It's been like the Kim weight-loss show recently. She has her own fridge and her own chef. "No one is allowed to eat in front of her, or talk about food and she won't even be present when everyone else is having dinner - not even when the kids are eating."

Prince owned Carib mansion

Prince owned a secret US$12 million holiday home in Turks and Caicos.

The late 1999 hitmaker, who was found dead at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota, USA, last month, splashed out on a 10,000 sq ft Caribbean retreat in 2010 but never fully moved into the 10-bedroom, 10-bathroom property.

Robert Greenwood of Christie's International Real Estate, told TMZ the luxury abode is "sparsely furnished", but does feature some items from Prince's Purple Rain movie, including a mirror and a few chairs.

While Prince never got around to furnishing the house, the first thing he did when he bought it was paint the driveway in his signature purple.

The stunning estate, which is on the island of Providenciales, boasts a tennis court, 200-foot boat dock and its own private white sand beach.

Like the rest of the singer's assets, it is not yet known what will happen to the property. as Prince died without making a will.

It was recently revealed around 700 people have come forward to stake a claim towards the Raspberry Beret singer's estate.

Harvey Morse, of Morse Genealogical Services, is currently trying to establish the legitimacy of the claims of each person who has come forward, with the late star's estate set to be divided among his siblings.

He explained: "They run the gamut, literally from 'We lived in the same area so we must be related', to 'We have pictures of Prince at our family reunion'."

Drew Barrymore hangs with mother-in-law

Drew Barrymore spent Mother's Day with her estranged husband's mom.

The Whip It actress split from Will Kopelman last month after almost four years of marriage, but she is clearly still on good terms with his family as she spent the day celebrating at the beach with Coco Kopelman and her own daughters, Olive, three years old, and Frankie, two.

Drew shared an Instagram picture of herself, Coco and her youngest daughter and wrote: "Three generations. Grammy. Me and Frank's. @cocokopelman #happymothersday #iheartgrammy. (sic)"

When the couple announced last month that they were separating, Drew and Will insisted it didn't make them any less of a family.

They said in a statement: "Sadly, our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family.

Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on."

Though the Miss You Already actress has little contact with her mother, she recently admitted she still supports her financially.
