Travolta’s mustache

With a new cropped haircut, it appears as if Travolta has decided to do the decent thing now that his hairline is waving goodbye to his forehead.

And the moustache and bold new sideburns certainly draw the eye away from his shiny pate, as does the tough-guy tattoo he is sporting on his neck.

It’s a far cry from the days of Grease and Saturday Night Fever in the 1970s, when Travolta famously slick hairstyles almost stole the show.

Oh man after Saturday night fever the rebel without cause? The easy rider? What’s the matter with the guy? Does scientology makes all that to human?

Playboy cushion robbery

A goods train in southern France has been attacked by robbers who made off with cushions bearing the Playboy logo.

The attack happened in the northern suburbs of Marseille, the regional newspaper La Provence reports. It says the thieves blocked the track with sleepers, causing the 700m (760-yard) train to screech to a halt, and forced open a number of containers.

Apart from the Playboy cushions, police said it was not clear what else was taken. The train driver was not harmed. The car used in the robbery was later found burnt.

No girl of the month? They were probably hoping the girls to be part of …

Snipes in jail for three years

Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes has received a three-year prison sentence for tax offenses.

A federal judge handed down the maximum term requested by prosecutors – a year for each of Snipes’s convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return. Snipes’s lawyers had called for leniency, arguing that the offenses were misdemeanors and that the star was of good character.

But prosecutors said an example should be set because of Snipes’s fame. In February, Snipes was found guilty of deliberately failing to file tax returns for 1999, 2000 and 2001, but was cleared of more serious fraud and conspiracy charges.

The first vampire in prison!!! Sentenced for drinking tax!!!

Britney Spears joins Michael Jackson’s club

Britney Spears and her family have been ordered to pay her lawyers $372,500 by a Los Angeles court.

Commissioner Reva Goetz ruled James Spears, who was granted control of his daughter’s funds in January, must settle the legal bill using her money. Mr Spears was originally granted “temporary conservatorship” over his daughter in February after she was admitted to a psychiatric ward.

The situation will be reviewed at the next conservatorship hearing on 29 May. The decision comes one month after another judge ordered Ms Spears to pay former husband Kevin Federline $375,000 to cover legal fees in their child custody case.

Man this story gets more and more Jacksonalike!

Queen plan stage musical

Queen guitarist Brian May has revealed a sequel to the stage musical We Will Rock You will be bought to the stage.

“We are planning the sequel,” he said. “It is a real challenge.” The 60-year-old said about two million people had seen We Will Rock You, written and directed by Ben Elton, since it opened in London in 2002.

May also say the band were preparing for their autumn tour and new album. “The long arm of Queen has pulled me back in at the moment. It is a beast.” He added: “We’ve pressed the button to go on tour this autumn so already the preparations are very consuming.

“We’ve chosen our set; we’ve chosen our environment on tour. It is very exciting, very exciting indeed. Very time consuming but Queen always was consuming.” Productions of We Will Rock You, based on the songs of Queen, have since opened in Australia, Spain, Russia, the US, Japan and Germany.

The musician was speaking at a formal ceremony to install him as the Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University.
