I could do a whole post on each of these, but maybe it’s better I just offer links to the original sources.

  1. Chris Martin’s goopy “conscious uncoupling” with Gwyneth Paltrow may be related to her adherence to Kabbalah. Meanwhile, were there clues to the marital strife in Coldplay’s music?
  2. Something thinks it’s a good idea to let Madonna direct a movie. Haven’t they learned from her previous two outings?
  3. Mick Jagger is the sole heir to the estate of designer, L’Wren Scott, his late girlfriend.  Her company was in terrible debt when she took her life. What does this mean for Mick?

  7. Rapper Pit Bull wants to be a billionaire. (Thanks to John.)
