Gordon Ramsay’s £30K hair transplant
Gordon RamsayTelly chef Gordon Ramsay reportedly had a 30,000- pound hair transplant at Alvi Armani center in Beverly Hills. The 44 year old, famed for his wild locks, spent a gruelling 12 hours having follicles painstakingly removed from lush patches of his scalp and reinserted where his hairline is thinning. The foul-mouthed Hell’s Kitchen star then scurried with a surgical-style cap on his swathed head to the underground car park of the Los Angeles clinic - where a chauffeur was waiting to whisk him away. "While his hair may not have been obviously receding, it had become an issue for him,” said a source.

“Some will call it vanity - but to TV producers and Gordon it’s a pre-emptive action to stop him suddenly going on TV with obvious thinning.

"He may like boiled eggs, but he doesn’t want to go on TV looking like one. Better to act now than have countless pictures and comment scrutinizing his hairline in years to come,” the source added.

Hair transplant guru Antonio Armani - the clinic’s founder - is believed to have performed a radical new treatment on the presenter.

Pamela Anderson’s ad rejected at Hong Kong airport
Pamela AndersonAn advertisement featuring a scantily clad Pamela Anderson has been rejected by Hong Kong airport, animal protection campaigners have said. The commercial is the latest to be made by the group People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in their long-running campaign against the use of animal furs and skins in fashion. In it, the former Baywatch star is seen dressed in a revealing airport security guard uniform stopping people and stripping them of leather belts and shoes and fur coats. The advertisement, titled "Cruelty Doesn’t Fly", also features comedians Steve-O, Andy Dick and Carol Leifer, a pair of models and Nina Hagen. PETA had hoped to place the advert on large-screen televisions throughout Hong Kong International Airport over the peak, year-end holiday period when more than 100,000 people a day pass through the airport. However, JCDecaux, the company that manages the advertising concession at the airport, rejected the advertisement as inappropriate.

"Given the groping that you see at security checkpoints that you see in body scans, we’re surprised that our light-hearted ad was deemed too risque, PETA Asia vice president Jason Baker said.

PETA said it hoped to place the ad in Berlin, Tokyo and Sydney and in airports in the US, but Hong Kong had been the first to reject it.

This year, an advertisement featuring longtime PETA supporter Anderson in a bikini with her body marked to show cuts of meats, similar to posters seen in butchers, was banned in Montreal.

Whispers of an impending engagement began circulating earlier this month after Toth was spotted making the rounds at several high-profile jewellers in Los Angeles, including Harry Winston.

Kate Middleton to join Royal Family at Madame TussaudsKate Middleton will become the latest addition to the Royal Family when she marries Prince William in April next year. But she will have to wait a few months longer to join them at Madame Tussauds. The famous wax museum has revealed that Middleton’s waxwork will probably not be seen alongside the Prince until late 2011. It said it would try to book a sitting with Middleton after her wedding. It would then take sculptors up to four months to make the model. The museum is also waiting to hear if she would donate an outfit for the waxwork. Upon completion, the wax Middleton will join The Queen, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, Camilla and Princes William and Harry, who are already on display at Madame Tussauds.

“It looks likely it will be shortly after the wedding and then it takes four months to complete,” said a spokeswoman at Madame Tussauds.

“It depends on what she wants and whether she can donate clothing. I imagine the sculptors will probably go to her and the sitting normally takes a couple of hours,” she added.

Buy Kate Middleton’s engagement ring for 3 bucks in China
Kate-Middleton-Engagement-RingChinese vendors looking to cash in on the frenzy over the April wedding of Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton are selling copies of her engagement ring for as little as three dollars. Knock-offs of the 45,000-dollar sapphire-and-diamond ring that the prince gave to Middleton - and once worn by his mother, Princess Diana - are on offer at various shops on, China’s largest online mall. Most are selling for less than 100 yuan (15 dollars), with the cheapest - allegedly made of zircon and unspecified alloys - available for just 19.9 yuan, or about three dollars. The original item was given to Diana by William’s father, Prince Charles, when they were engaged in February 1981. Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 and she was killed in a car crash in Paris the following year.

Chinese media said this week that factories in Yiwu, east China, the world’s largest wholesale market for small products, were ramping up output of royal wedding souvenirs, from fake rings to cups to dolls.

The producers, wary of finding themselves in a copyright lawsuit, say they are making minor changes to their bogus engagement rings, reducing the number of "diamonds" surrounding the "sapphire".

"I believe other company owners are the same as me - none of us would like to run the risk" associated with making exact replicas,” said Zhou Mingwang, a businessman in Yiwu.

Cheap imitation rings have also flown off shop shelves in Brazil.

Aishwarya Rai to sue Elle magazine
Aishwarya RaiAishwarya Rai is in a foul mood and it’s all owing to her recent Elle magazine photo-shoot that spurred quite a racial row. The actress, who appears to be a few tones fairer than her original skin tone, is peeved with the publication for making her look several shades lighter. The actress, who is always politically correct and rarely indulges in any show of emotion, has been fuming ever since the cover hit stands. Said a source, “Aishwarya’s first reaction was disbelief. She believed that these things don’t happen anymore. Not in this day and age when women are recognized for their merit, and not for the colour of their skin. She is currently verifying this skin-whitening allegation. If there is any proof of this, she might even take action.” As per reports, the doctored image was brought to Ash’s attention by her fans, who flew into a rage after they saw that their icon was made to look ghastly white on the cover.

However, this isn’t the first time that the magazine has preached Caucasian standards of beauty. It might be recalled that in September this year, the US edition of the same magazine had featured on its cover an African-American actress, Gabourey Sidibe, with a much paler complexion.

A friend said, “No one in any part of the world looks at Ash with culture-specific eyes. Though she has represented India on many international forums she is regarded as a world citizen. She is clearly the global face of the contemporary Indian woman. The last thing she’d want is to have a global image coloured by a racial suggestion.”

Kirron Kher refused citing date issues; other included Shabana Azmi and Rekha.”

As for the movie it revolves around daughter-mother relationship wherein a strange twist of destiny exchanges their souls . “Anil feels the dhak dhak girl is apt for the mother’s role, due to her versatility as an actress. Now that Madhuri has come down to India to be a part of a reality show, she was queued up with several scripts for films too., she did have a long meeting with Anil Kapoor when he approached her with the desi version of Freaky Friday,” said the source.

“Madhuri has liked the plot, but still needs to give her confirmation for doing the film. She is working out her dates," adds the source.

Aishwarya Rai to reveal all in her autobiography
Aishwarya RaiAishwarya Rai has been booked or so it appears as the sassy actress has been offered a whopping amount to reveal all about her life in her autobiography. Approached by a leading foreign publishing house, the stunning beauty was handed out a blank cheque by the publishing house asking her to quote her price for the venture. However, even though Ash in unsure about the project she hasn’t refused the offer yet. Confirms a source, "Ash remains a global icon who has managed to be at the top of the game for years despite constant good work from younger actors like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra. Though the industry feels that Kareena is the numero uno star in B-town, in terms of global presence Ash wins over them all. Publishers want to explore the possibility of an autobiography of her journey from modeling to films and her relationships to marriage. They feel here is a fantastic real-life story to be told."

“Ash is unsure whether it is the right time to write a book. She respects her privacy and this is the major roadblock in sealing the deal," adds the source.

What’s more is that Aishwarya too confirmed that she got the offer but refused to give a definite comment by saying, “There is a right time for everything to happen”.

Bristol PalinBristol Palin has bought a five-bedroom home in Pinal County south of Phoenix. Paperwork shows the recent "Dancing With the Stars" diva and daughter of Sarah Palin is the sole purchaser of the house in the town of Maricopa. She bought it for $172,000 from a North Dakota couple. It’s not clear if Bristol Palin will be a seasonal visitor or permanent resident at the home, in a development called Cobblestone Farms. According to real estate websites, the residence is a two-level, brown stucco house with a tile roof, a landscaped front and back yard, and access to a community pool. The Arizona Republic reports the 3,900-square-foot home was built in 2006 and was bought for a little under $330,000 at the time. It has 2 1/2 baths and a three-car garage.

The 20 year old, Bristol Palin, closed on the home in early December, buying it from Michael and Cynthia Smith, according to paperwork filed with the Pinal County Recorder’s Office.

"I’m not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her," said Michael Smith.

Shah Rukh Khan to be brand ambassador of XXX Energy Drinks
Shah Rukh Khan to be brand ambassador of XXX Energy DrinksJMJ Group firm XXX Energy Drinks Limited plans to rope in Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan as the brand ambassador of its products as it embarks on a Rs 100 crore expansion plan by next year. The company, which is looking to garner a sales of Rs 100 crore from the brand by 2015, said it is looking to set up its first production facility for which it is scouting for location. "We are in talks to get Shah Rukh Khan as brand ambassador. We will officially announce in March or April next year," JMJ Group Vice Chairman Sachin Joshi said. Earlier this year, the brand has been associated with Khan’s IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders as its principal sponsor. He, however, did not give further financial details on the contract and the time frame of it.

The company said it is looking at setting up its first facility, planning to introduce more brands in the near future, besides expanding its presence in the overseas markets by next year.

"To set up a manufacturing facility, we need to do a substantial business first. By 2012, hopefully we would start setting up a plant, which could entail an investment of USD 10 million (Rs 45 crore)," he said, adding that the capacity of the plant will be around three million cans a month.

It could be either in Pune or Dubai, where it currently manufactures its products through third party.

Besides, the company is also introducing products at price points between Rs 25-30 as part of its plan to tap into the mass market and expand its presence into the smaller cities.

"We will be launching one more brand soon. One of the main reason for the slow growth of energy drinks in India is the high price. So we are looking at introducing an brand which could cost around Rs 25-30," he said.

At present, the firm sells four brands - XXX, Rejuve, Nicofix and Minus in India and abroad.

On expanding its international presence the company said it is looking at taking to products to around 14 countries across the globe, including UK, African countries and Singapore by the end of 2010. The company is also planning to increase its marketing spend to USD 10 million (Rs 45 crore) from USD 8 (Rs 36 crore) million by next year.

Understanding the Universe and human connection
I guess, you will pay me thanks for this post. Through this blog post I want to tell you about a very specific concept that has been termed as ‘The Cave’ by a New York based artist. Apart from being an artist, he is an established physician, surgeon and biologist. By using the term ‘The Cave’, he has tried his best to understand and explain the universe by an artist’s view. He is Marco Stout, who has attempted to integrate the mind body connection with the metaphysical universe. As an artist he is working on a project named, ‘The Cave’, which is a collection of his artistic ability to explain the universe. In his philosophical words, this universe is something like a cave where as a physical body, we are like prisoners.

He further explains, we try our best to understand the universe and the nature of the universe through myths, religions and scientific methods and all this turn to be just impossible attempts to understand the universe. He says that the universe is similar to a cave which we people take to be real and that is our fault. This scenario makes it impossible to understand. To understand our universe in a better way, we should treat it as an illusion, not as real.

This NYC artist has tried to explain the nature of the universe by some interesting creations and exhibitions. To know more about him and his creations, you should visit his home page. I am sure, you are going to like it.
Kate Moss amazed by her career success
Kate MossSupermodel Kate Moss admits that she is amazed to see how long her career has lasted. The 36-year-old catwalk queen has been modelling since she was 14 and admits she has no plans to retire anytime soon. "How long will I keep modelling? I really don’t know - I didn’t even see myself lasting as long as I have. I did my first photo shoot at 16 and I thought that was it! I just really enjoy creating images and working with creative people. I love the whole process. So, for as long as I enjoy it, I’ll still do it. And as long as I’m still getting booked!" she told. Moss believes one of the reasons she has lasted so long is her determination to assist photographers in getting the right shot, even when it can be a "humiliating" experience.

"I’ve watched ‘Britain’s Next Top Model’ and things like that. The thing is, it takes a lot of learning to do this job. In ‘BNTM’, they put the contestants through the torture of what modelling can be like," she said.

"And it honestly can be really humiliating. I mean I’ve done crazy things – I’ve been in a bikini in minus -30 temperatures and you have to keep going until you get the shot. But that’s me - I will always keep going until I get the shot," she added.
Leonardo DiCaprio tops highest earning list
Leonardo DiCaprio - highest earning actorHollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio has topped Forbes magazine list of the highest grossing actors of 2010, thanks to hits like ‘Inception’ and ‘Shutter Island’. The 36-year-old starred in movies which made USD 1.1 billion at the global box office and DiCaprio took home a big pay cheque, earning USD 75 million for his work on ‘Inception’ alone. "The young actor has a habit of picking very adult films. These aren’t the kind of superhero/comic book films that usually top the box office. But DiCaprio is well on his way to becoming one of Hollywood’s best-paid actors," said the magazine. Tying for second place with co-star Johhny Depp, is the big surprise on the list, newcomer Mia Wasikowska, who played the titular role in ‘Alice in Wonderland’, which raked in USD 1.03 billion at the box office. "Just as surprising, she ties Depp in our ranking thanks to her other movie this year, The Kids Are All Right. That film has earned USD 29 million at the global box office, a healthy return considering the estimated USD 4 million production budget," said the magazine about the 21-year-old Australian actress.

Robert Downey Jr. ranks fourth with USD 808 million thanks to ‘Iron Man 2’ and the comedy ‘Due Date’. The top five was rounded off by young British actor Daniel Radcliffe who gained a spot thanks to his role as young wizard Harry Potter in the superhit fantasy franchise.

‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’, which only opened a month ago, is already the fourth-highest-grossing film of 2010 with USD 780 million at the global box office.

‘Twilight’ heartthrob Robert Pattinson grabbed the sixth spot while while his co-star in the vampire franchise and real-life girlfriend Kristen Stewart came seventh.

‘Avatar’ actor Sam Worthington came eighth while Will Smith’s 12-year-old son Jaden Smith and his ‘Karate Kid’ co-star Jackie Chan rounded off the top ten.
