Katy Perry Isn't The Only Celebrity Who Believes In Aliens: 5 More UFO-Obsessed Celebs


Katy Perry Tom Cruise Elvis Presley Megan Fox Alicia Keys Shirley Maclaine

Katy Perry appeared as the cover girl for the February issue of GQ magazine, where amongst other things, she revealed that she genuinely believes in extraterrestrial beings and that we are not alone. She also spoke about praying for large breasts, regretting that prayer in later life, her dislike of cannabis, losing her virginity, the beginnings of her career and much more, but it was her other worldly beliefs that has caught on.

Katy Perry
Katy believes that we are not alone

"I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form?" she questioned. "I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I'm going to ask him that question. It just hasn't been appropriate yet."

New Elvis Presley Exhibit Put On Display At Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame


Elvis Presley Priscilla Presley

Elvis Presley continues to be remembered and celebrated long after his death, and on Friday, 29 November, the King of Rock & Roll was honoured yet again at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Featuring a number of personal items loaned from Graceland, his Memphis mansion and now a permanent museum dedicated to Elvis, the new exhibit looks to pay tribute to Elvis and show off some of his more extravagant tastes and hopefully some things that will be new to a number of fans.

Elvis has had a long association with the R&RHoF

Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, Elvis' posthumous association with the organisation has been a regular occurrence, with the current exhibition the latest in a long succession of exhibits honouring the King. The opening of the exhibit came in tandem with the launch of Elvis Presley Enterprises, the new company set up to manage all of the late icon's business assets, including Graceland, and to conduct business on his behalf. The company was founded by his widow, Priscilla Presley.

Rihanna Makes UK Chart History As Eminem Collaboration Storms To The No. 1 Spot


Rihanna Elvis Presley Beatles Lorde One Republic Fatboy Slim One Direction

Rihanna made chart history this weekend when her latest collaborative effort with rapper Eminem entered the chart at number one, meaning she's hit the top spot for seven years running, at some point or another. The feat has only ever been matched by The Beatles and Elvis Presley and has etched her into the history books alongside those two recording greats.

'The Monster' - her second number one collaboration with Eminem following their massively successful link up on 2010's 'Love the Way you Lie' - continues a run of form that began in 2007 with 'Umbrella' and it looks as though she could even break the eight year mark.

Rihanna has now had 8 number one singles over a period of 7 consecutive calendar years. But let's put that into perspective: alongside her fellow 'Club 7' record breakers, The Beatles had 17 number one singles in the same period, more than double that of Ri-Ri. She's got a long way to go.

Michael Jackson Named Top Earning Celebrity Dead Or Alive


Michael Jackson Madonna Elvis Presley Elizabeth Taylor Bob Marley

In it's most recent list of top celebrity earners, Forbes has named Michael Jackson as the highest earning dead celebrity of the last year. With his estate earning an estimated $160 million between October 2012 and June 2013, not only is Michael the top earning dead celebrity, but the top earning celebrity in general.

Michael Jackson tops the list once again

Michael's earnings over the last year amount to $35 million more than the top-placed living celebrity, Madonna, who Forbes estimates earned $125 million between 2012 and 2013. As reported by Forbes, this marks the "third time in the past five years" that a dead celebrity has been crowned the highest earner of the year. How appropriate for a list that is released just before Halloween.

Susan Boyle To Record 'Duet' With Elvis Presley For Christmas Album


Susan Boyle Elvis Presley Celine Dion Frank Sinatra

Susan Boyle has already lived out her life-long ambitions by performing alongside the likes of Elaine Paige and Donny Osmond since she was catapulted to stardom through her performance on Britain's Got Talent, and now the Scottish singer will get to fulfil another life-long ambition by performing with The King himself; Elvis Presley.

Su-Bo will release her first Christmas-themed studio album, Home For Christmas, in time for the festive period and has promised no shortage of surprises for the yuletide LP, her fifth album to date. She will become the first British artist to duet with Elvis through the use of studio wizardry on a version of the well-known carol 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful,' the Sunday People first reported this weekend. The self confessed Elvis fanatic admitted to the paper that the singing opportunity is a “dream come true.”

John Lennon Beatles Mick Jagger Scarlett Johansson Elvis Presley

The news has experienced a bit of a John Lennon frenzy in the past few days. The late Beatles guitarist has made headlines - or at least relics of him have - as news that someone wants to clone him from a rotten tooth and that his blue jacket have been sold at auction has emerged.

John Lennon
John's Lennon Jacket Fetched £7,000 At Auction.

The jacket, which was expected to reach between £8,000 and £12,000 at a Derbyshire auction, was passed from Lennon to Jo Jo Johns, the band's former PA, after she acquired it after a 1971 clear-out of Lennon's house, reports BBC News. Johns then gifted the teal long blazer-style garment to her friend Tony Goddard as a birthday present and it was Goddard who chose to set the item now after 25 years of displaying it in his home.

Kristen Stewart Nurses Her Broken Heart & Suffers Prankster Taunts


Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Riley Keough Elvis Presley

It's safe to say that actress Kristen Stewart is going through a pretty emotionally troublesome time, having split with her long-term, on/off boyfriend and fellow Twilight co-star Rob Pattinson in May only to now hear reports that he's been publically moving on with Elvis Presley's granddaughter and Stewart-lookalike Riley Keough.

Not only having to contend with her crushing heartache, Stewart has also recently been the victim of a cruel jibe after someone wrote "I [heart] Rob" in the grime on the front of her pickup truck whilst she was out running errands in Hollywood. She and Pattinson split in May after a four year relationship that echoed the onscreen romance of their Twilight characters, Bella and Edward.

Michael Jackson's Doctor Details Painkiller Addiction And AEG's Knowledge Of Drug Problems


Michael Jackson Elvis Presley

Michael Jackson was addicted to prescription drugs and had been for well over a decade before his eventual death in 2009 - that's what his one-time doctor, Dr. Stuart Finklestein, told a courtroom via a video deposition on Monday (July 8) during the wrongful death case brought against tour organisers AEG by the bereaved Jackson family, with Finklestein adding that he had alerted AEG bosses of the singer's condition and the vulnerability of his medical condition, according to the Los Angeles Times.

As the wrongful-death trial reached its 43rd day, Finklestein's testimony detailed his long-time friendship with Paul Gongaware, the manager of Michael's extensive 'Dangerous' tour of the early nineties. The doctor discussed how, upon meeting Jackson in 1993 whilst his tour was in Bangkok, Thailand, he was suffering from severe headaches and, under the guidance of Allan Metzger - his LA doctor - Finklestein administered Demoral and later morphine to Michael until he felt hell enough to go on stage. Finklestein told the court that when he first tried to administer a shot of Demerol to Jackson, “his buttocks were so scarred up and abscessed that the needle almost bent. ... He obviously had had multiple injections in his buttocks prior to arriving in Bangkok.”

What A Hound Dog! Is Robert Pattinson Dating Elvis' Granddaughter?


Robert Pattinson Riley Keough Elvis Presley Lisa Marie Presley Kristen Stewart

The actor who played Edward Cullen and the target of many a frenzied tweenage fan melt-down, Robert Pattinson, is set to be back in the game; only weeks after his split with Twilight co-star and long-term on/off girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. The Daily Mail reports that the pair were spotted speeding around L.A in Rob's pickup truck over the past weekend.

Robert Pattinson: Is He Playing The Field After Splitting From Kristen?

The relationship, described as "short-term lust right now rather than long-term love" by The Mail's source, is rather too out in the open for heart-broken Stewart, who is said to be "devastated" that her long-time lover has moved on from her since their May split. After the initial reports that Rob was dating 'I Kissed A Girl' singer Katy Perry, this last rumour is just a bit too painful for the 23- year-old. Keough and Stewart are said to be good friends after meeting on the set of 2010's The Runaways movie where they co-starred. Keough was certainly close enough the On The Road actress to be invited to her 23rd birthday celebrations - she was pictured attending Stewart's Mexican cantina birthday party.

Beginning Of The End? One Direction Sign INDIVIDUAL Publishing Deals


One Direction Harry Styles Louis Tomlinson Niall Horan Zayn Malik Liam Payne Britney Spears Black Eyed Peas Foo Fighters Elvis Presley

Ah, we was wondering when this was going to happen. One Direction have added a couple more million to their bank accounts, though this time they're thinking for themselves. Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne have signed SEPARATE publishing deals to cash in on all songs they have credits for writing.

It's a clear sign that the boys are beginning to look after their own interests following the phenomenal success of their first couple of years in the industry. The publishing deals are being overseen by Fingate, the company who also cash in on Elvis Presley's back catalogue as well as work by Britney Spears, Black Eyed Peas and Foo Fighters

A source said: "This is a real statement of intent from the band. They have absolutely no intention of being spoon-fed pop puppets. They want to write and they want to earn as individuals." As well as the new deals, each of the five members have also invested in their own studio set-ups at home and have been attending writing sessions together after gigs. On their latest record Take Me Home, the band had three songs with individual writing credits while the others were penned by outsider songwriters. The group did not have a hand in writing the three biggest hits from the album, Live While We're Young, Kiss You and Little Things.

''Why that one?" asked Giles, before clarifying: "Well it's for an old flame of mine, a very old flame called Michelle Adkins. I'd like to let her know that I'm thinking of her. She's done pretty well these days. She's actually changed her name to Adele Adkins in recent years.'' After being asked for more information about the relationship, Giles described: ''a whirlwind romance many years ago'', and added: ''It was fun and eventful.

Sony Hackers Escape Jail After Leaking Michael Jackson Tracks


Michael Jackson Elvis Presley Beyonce Knowles

Two men, who hacked Sony Entertainment's servers and downloaded thousands of songs, including some unreleased material from Michael Jackson, have escaped jail time today (Jan 12) after a court hearing in Leicester, UK.

The two men, James McCormick, 26, and James Marks, 27, met online before eventually collaborating together to break into Sony's vast musical database and helping themselves to the spoils, which also included Elvis Presley and Beyoncé as well as MJ. They were arrested in May 2011, after Sony identified the security breach, but not before helping themselves to over 7000 songs, as well as artwork and videos. The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) said that the two had also conspired to sell the files on after they had been stolen, after chat-logs recovered from the pair's computers offered some rather incriminating evidence for the prosecutors to consider.

The pair first appeared in court in September last year, pleading guilty to computer misuse offences. They now face a suspended 6 month sentence each, reduced from a year, as well as 100 hours of community service. Mick Jameison, from SOCA's Cyber Department, said to press shortly after the sentencing, "These men stole thousands of copyrighted files belonging to Sony Music. Our remit is to protect businesses as well the public, and we will continue to work closely with law enforcement and industry partners to tackle online criminality."

Bill O'Reilly Not Taken In By The Psy Hype


Bill O'Reilly Psy Elvis Presley

On last night's (Nov 29) edition of The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly distanced himself from the masses and admitted that he is in no way a fan of Korean singer Psy's massive YouTube hit 'Gangnam Style.'

Describing the singer as "a little fat guy from Pyongyang or some place," O'Reilly invited on to the show Fox News's resident 'psychiatrist' Keith Ablow to deconstruct the show, whilst also making perfectly clear that Psy is not Elvis Presley, nor will he ever be anything life him regardless of the Korean (that's South Korea, not North Korea like O'Reilly seems to think) current success.

The two spoke on the hot topic for about five minutes, with the conservative commentator and Ablow deconstructing and disagreeing with all of the hit song. At one point, Albow made the assertion that 'Gangnam Style' appeals to the masses because it is about "nothing," and that the song was mostly "without intelligible words" (and we kind of see his point).

Andy Williams Songs Were Legendary, But His Television Career Deserves Respect


Andy Williams Elvis Presley Perry Como Elton John The Osmonds Smokey Robinson Beach Boys

Andy Williams songs will be played on record players across the globe today, after the effortlessly smooth crooner – best known for his track ‘Moon River’ – died on Wednesday, aged 84.

Williams soothing voice, boyish looks and easy-going demeanour ensured he outlasted many of the rock-stars of the 60’s and 70’s, as well as contemporaries such as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. For a man who became a major star in the same year as Elvis Presley, Williams enjoyed an astonishing career and remained on the charts well into the 1970s, while continuing to perform into the 1980s at the Moon River Theater that he built in Branson. However, Williams’ television career was equally as commendable and his eponymous show lasted from 1962 until 1971, winning three Emmys along the way. It was on that show that Williams introduced the world to The Osmonds (their young sibling, a certain Donny, made his debut on the show when just 6-years-old). He also booked rock and soul acts, including The Beach Boys, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and Elton John. His attitude to fame was perhaps summed up when he mused “I guess I've never really been aggressive, although almost everybody else in show business fights and gouges and knees to get where they want to be…My trouble is, I'm not constructed temperamentally along those lines,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

Williams never entertained the possibility of retirement and told the Associated Press in 2001, “I'll keep going until I get to the point where I can't get out on stage.” He is survived by his wife Debbie and three children.

Change Of Habit Review


Terrible
I'm hard-pressed to remember a film worse than Change of Habit, a movie which features the following:

- Elvis Presley (in his final movie role) as a singing doctor in a free urban clinic- Mary Tyler Moore as a nun and nurse- A plot which features said nurse and her friends "going undercover" in said doctor's clinic, and- The inevitable romance between Elvis and Mary.

Girls! Girls! Girls! Review


Weak
Ridiculous, this Elvis Presley flick is just an excuse for the King to sing, whether he's holding court on shore or captaining his tuna boat (seriously) -- where the crew handle percussion on their thighs. Ultimately, he gets caught between two girls as he attempts to raise money to buy the boat. Will he go for the rich girl who's going incognito as a nobody, or the dull as nails Robin? Ah, skip it. Presley does have a few appropriately juicy moments of misogyny that are worth a look.
