The infa'mouse' Winehouse and Doherty vid

Well there isn't much to say about this one.
This is of course, the infamous (or infamousE, if you like) YouTube video of Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty playing with a bunch of day old mice. They named the video "Winemouse".

The video was allegedly 'upped' by Pete himself. There is a 'part 2' to "Winemouse" that has a kitten in it too. This has since been removed from Pete's video selection. But those who were quick off the mark to download it still have it in their video collections.

Although the video has got a strange blue tinge to it, adding to the sinister surreality, if you listen to Pete, it seems the effect was not on purpose.
As weird as the video is, it seems to me to be two mates being odd on purpose and being themselves.
I think you'd be hard pushed to find other big stars acting this (errmm) 'natural' in front of a camera.

The trial of top R&B singer R Kelly is due to begin, almost six years since his arrest for the alleged crimes. The singer could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

41-year old Kelly was originally arrested back in February 2002, after the Chicago Sun-Times (Kelly's local paper), sent a video tape to the police, allegedly showing Mr Kelly and an underaged girl involved in sex acts.

Mr Kelly has denied video-taping himself engaging in sex acts.
It is believed that the prosecutors are going to have a complicated task, what with the large amount of time past since the original arrest, and the fact that the alleged victim (now aged 23) refuses to admit she is the girl on the tape.

David Blaine, always seeking to upstage himself, has broken a new record for holding your breath under water.

Magician Blaine was suspended in a water-filled sphere while holding his breath for over 17 minutes, on the stage of the Oprah Winfrey show.
Blaine told Oprah (nutter magnet) Winfrey that he was hoping to reach 23 minutes but realised that his heart was beating irregularly, so he ended the stunt at just over 17 minutes, beating former record holder Peter Colat's 16 minutes, 32 seconds.
