A Week In News: Fans Mourn Mindy McCready, Fergie Pregnant, Britney Has A New Man

Mindy McCready

Ten Thousand Angels: This week, we reported on the tragic news regarding country singer , who passed away at the age of just 39. Mindy will be remembered for her debut album - which was certified twice Platinum by the RIAA - as well as 1997's If I Don't Stay The Night and 1990's I'm Not So Tough.

Her Lovely Baby Bump: Great news for Black Eyed Peas fans this week, after singer Fergie announced she is pregnant with her and Josh Duhamel's first child! Fergie announced the news on Twitter, tweeting, "Josh & Me & BABY makes three! #mylovelybabybump."

Who's Britney's New Man? Britney Spears took her fans by surprise this week after being snapped on the golf course on Valentine's Day with a mystery man. We know he's called David. We know he works for a law firm. We know he's NOT a lawyer. But that's just about all we know.

Beyonce - Life Is But A Dream

Life's A Dream For Bey: Beyonce has proved once again that she's among the most popular entertainers on the planet, pulling in a massive 1.8 million viewers for her HBO special '.' It represented the largest audience for a documentary on the channel since 2004.

Not Again, Alec: Alex Baldwin's at it again, this time feuding with the New York Post over a rather unsavoury allegation that he hurled racist abuse at one of the newspaper's photographers after grabbing the arm of a journalist. Baldwin denies the whole thing, though the NYPD are investigating.

What A Balls-Up! Chilling details of the failed plot to murder Justin Bieber emerged this week, with a phone call between the assailants posted online. They planned to castrate the Canadian pop-star shortly before a show at Madison Square Garden. One problem: they used a telephone line that was easily intercepted by police. Idiots.

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton

Plastic Princess? Booker Prize winner novelist Hilary Mantel found herself on the end of telling off from Prime Minister David Cameron this week after having the audacity to suggest the  was a plastic princess, required only for breeding. We suspect Mr Cameron jumped the gun on this one - it's not quite the whole story. 

Extra, Extra, Read All About It: More great baby news this week, with Extra host Mario Lopez announcing he's to be a father for the second time. He and wife Courtney Mazza are already parents to 2-year-old girl Gia. Lopez, 39, says he's "just so excited" to be a Daddy again.

Macca Heads To Bonnaroo: The Bonnaroo lineup 2013 was announced this week, with elder statesman Sir Paul McCartney topping the bill, along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and folk-rock darlings Mumford and Sons. Elsewhere, fans can expect to see David Byrne, Wu Tang Clan, R Kelly and Bjork. Nice.

Video of the Week: This week's hottest footage comes from the Rock Fantasy Camp, where the legendary Alice Cooper suggested there's too many "wimpy" bands around nowadays. Do you agree?
