J-Lo, Sting & Enrique Iglesias Perform At Lavish '$1 Billion' Wedding Of Russian Oligarch's Son


Jennifer Lopez Sting Enrique Iglesias

There’s splashing out on your wedding day, and then there’s this. In what’s rumoured to be the most lavish wedding ceremony in history, serious stars such as Sting, Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias performed for the son of a Russian billionaire and his bride in a day of celebrations in Moscow rumoured to have cost over $1 billion.

Said Gutseriev, 28, the son of energy tycoon Mikhail Gutseriev, and his 20 year old bride Khadija Uzhakhova, tied the knot in the Russian capital on Saturday (March 26th). At the subsequent ceremony, rumoured to have been attended by 600 guests, the three pop stars performed their famous hits while attendees enjoyed a nine-tier wedding cake and a huge fireworks display.

Wedding guests took numerous pictures and videos at the ceremony, which appear to feature the venue’s walls completely covered with floral displays.

Zoolander 2 Review

Good

With virtually the same blend of wit and idiocy as the 2001 original, this fashion-scene comedy is funny enough to spark some solid laughter in between the gags that fall flat. The punchlines are simple and the characters paper thin, but this world is so ripe for parody that the rather awkward mix of in-jokes and satire can't help but hit the bullseye every now and then.

Things haven't been great for top supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) over the past 15 years. His reading school collapsed in tragedy, sending him to live as a "hermit crab" in the wilds of northern New Jersey. And with a facial injury, his cohort Hansel (Owen Wilson) has retired in the wasteland of Malibu. Then Italian designer Atoz (Kristen Wiig) summons them to Rome, just as Interpol agent Valentina (Penelope Cruz) is investigating a series of popstar murders that seem linked to Derek's past. Teaming up with Valentina, Derek and Hansel track down their old nemesis Mugatu (Will Ferrell), reconnect with Derek's long-lost son (Cyrus Arnold) and discover a sinister conspiracy.

Stiller directs the film as if it's the next instalment in the Da Vinci Code saga, complete with shadowy secret rituals and ominous chase sequences. But the dialogue remains utterly ludicrous, as this "ridiculously good-looking" duo go through their individual existential crises, clueless that the world has moved on without them. Stiller and Wilson reprise the hang-dog charm that made the characters so likeable the first time round. Although this time Derek gets some emotional depth, while Hansel plays the action hero. Ferrell and Wiig camp it up to the rafters in their colourful roles, while Cruz vamps through the film in bombshell love-interest mode. Her deadpan performance might actually be the funniest thing in the movie. And each scene is packed with big-star cameos, some of which are genuinely amusing.

Though Derek and Hansel have left the world of fashion modelling behind them, a part of both of them still has the wish to return to the stage and once again be crowned as the king of the runway. When some of the world's most famous celebrities are found murdered (all of whom have died pulling Derek's trademark Blue Steel pout) Interpol decide to recruit the two fashion veterans in a bid to infiltrate the current world of modelling - an industry that's evolved beyond the one they were originally accustom to.

Tom Hanks is a mammoth actor who has delighted fans with extraordinary performances for just short of 40 years. He started his career by providing us with some delightfully 80s classics in the era of big hair and bright colours with greats such as Splash, Big and Turner & Hooch. In the 90s he gave us a cacophony of feel-good flicks including Sleepless in Seattle, Forrest Gump and the first of one of the most successful trilogies of all time, Toy Story.

"Earn Your Own Money" Sting Denies Children His Fortune


Sting

Sting doesn't want his children to inherit his £180m fortune so that they can earn their own way in the world. The British rocker revealed his rather divisive plans in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, making it clear that his six children haven't had and won't have an easy ride and will have to stand on their own two feet.

The 62 year-old former Police star, who is one of Britain's wealthiest musicians, has revealed that he places an emphasis on encouraging his children "to succeed on their own merit" which they are happy to do. What's more, Sting claims that his fortune is depleting because of hefty outgoings.

He said: "I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate."

Sting's Children Will Not Inherit £180 Million Music Fortune


Sting

Sting is no pushover.

The 62 year-old music star recently revealed that none of his £180 million fortune will be left to his children.

Sting grew up in a working-class family in Wallsend, North Tyneside, and it seems he wants his six kids to have an idea of what that is like, and not to be privileged all their lives.
