Filed under: Uncategorized — enews @ 4:43 pm

R&B star Alicia Keys has hailed Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand as her ultimate idols for the way they juggled their music with acting.

The FALLIN' hitmaker makes her big screen debut in Smokin' Aces alongside Hollywood heavyweight Ben Affleck and is currently filming The Nanny Diaries With Scarlett Johansson.

Paris Hiltons Jealous Swipe At Hilton

Filed under: Uncategorized — enews @ 4:43 pm

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has branded her former best friend Nicole Richie "jealous" and has even written a song about the end of their friendship.

The Simple Life stars mysteriously fell out in January 2005 and have refused to divulge the reason behind the rift.

But Hilton insists the blame lies with Richie and has hit out at her envy in thinly-disguised track Jealousy – which will feature on her upcoming debut album.

She tells Out magazine, "It's a song about any girl. Any girl has a girlfriend that's jealous of you. It's the meanest, most evil thing that can take over you.

"I brought her (Richie) on The Simple Life, and all of a sudden she became this different person. She dropped her old friends and now she's someone else.

"That's not the girl I know. That's similar to the lyrics in Jealousy."

Meanwhile Nicole Richie has finally explained the reason behind her mysterious feud with her The Simple Life Co-star Paris Hilton.

The socialites had a much-publicised fall-out in January 2005 and have famously refused to divulge the reason behind their rift.

But Richie now insists she steered clear of her former pal after a stint in rehab made her reassess her priorities.

She tells Vanity Fair, "When I got out of rehab, I had to figure out what path to go down, and part of that included taking certain people out of my life.

"I just decided I didn't want to be her (Hilton's) friend anymore. We're just two completely different people; we don't have that much in common."

He says, "Elton was brilliant but I'm afraid I was a bit out of tune and managed to ruin the chorus.

"I sang in the school choir – but this was a bit different!

"Elton is one of my idols and to sing with him was the chance of a lifetime.

"When he called me up on to the stage, I couldn't really say no, could I?"

Da Vinci Code Starts Indian Riots,

Filed under: Uncategorized — enews @ 4:40 pm

Controversial new movie adaptation THE DA VINCI CODE has prompted religious protests in the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay).

Hundreds of Catholic stalwarts yesterday (11MAY06) gathered outside a convent school in the city in a bid to stop the film's release next week (19MAY06), blasting it as an attack on their faith.

Members of the Catholic Secular Forum (CSF) have taken offence to the movie's depiction of Catholic group Opus Dei as corrupt, out-dated and at the centre of a cover-up of the truth about Jesus Christ.

CSF general secretary JOSEPH DIAS says, "Activists will go on a fast unto death if the government fails to take action against anti-Christian movies.

"You can't make fiction on a religious figure. Tempers are already running quite high and there's no way of saying what could happen if the movie is released."

In a statement, the group added: "The Da Vinci Code is offensive as it hit certain basic foundations of the religion."

The protest is the second in a week by the CSF after Tuesday (09MAY06) saw approximately one hundred demonstrators take to the streets outside a Mumbai church and burn copies of the DAN BROWN novel.
