Good news fel­las, Natalie is sin­gle again

The Jewish Chronicle - - Features -

BIG-SCREEN BEAUTY Natalie Port­man has split from her folk singer boyfriend Devendra Ban­hart. The ac­tress, who has now turned her hand to a bit of film di­rect­ing too, has been feel­ing rather an­ti­mar­riage lately. She has ad­mit­ted: “I’m into monogamy. But I’m not re­ally into mar­riage… What does the state have to do with it?” Maybe that out­burst wasn’t too help­ful for the re­la­tion­ship. The pair had got to­gether af­ter the Star Wars ac­tress fea­tured in the folk rocker’s video, Car­men­sita, in March.

Amy Wine­house and Mark Ron­son have patched up their dif­fer­ences, and are once again col­lab­o­rat­ing, this time on a track to ap­pear on a Quincy Jones trib­ute al­bum. It’s the first time the dy­na­mite duo have worked to­gether since their ill-fated at­tempt at record­ing the theme tune for the new Bond movie, Quan­tum of So­lace. An in­sider told The Sun: “It’s go­ing to be ex­plo­sive stuff. Amy first met Quincy back­stage at the Nel­son Man­dela gig in Hyde Park in June. He knew who she was and she was thrilled to meet him. Her per­for­mance clearly im­pressed him — he was rav­ing about her. This is just the op­por­tu­nity she needs to show the world she has still got it.”

Katie Price has never been one to bite her tongue. Dur­ing an ap­pear­ance on ITV2’s game show Keith Lemon’s Celebrity Juice, hosted by co­me­dian Leigh Fran­cis, she launched into a ti­rade about podgy Ra­dio One DJ Chris Moyles. She made her dis­gust at how Girls Aloud’s Ni­cola Roberts has been hurt by his re­marks about her more than clear. An an­gry Price said, “He slags every­one off, he should take a look at his fat f****** self.” Well, that told him.

Madonna was spot­ted tak­ing her adopted Malaw­ian son, David, to the Kab­balah Cen­tre for Rosh Hashanah. The three-year-old was dressed all in white, and sported a white kip­pah. The pop star has de­clared that she wants to bring up her youngest son as a fol­lower of Kab­balah but that he is free to fol­low Chris­tian­ity (like his bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther) when he’s older. The Daily Mail quoted her as say­ing: “I be­lieve in Je­sus and I study the Kab­balah, so I don’t see why he can’t too. If David de­cides he wants to be a Chris­tian, then so be it.”

Add bankers to the list of peo­ple Sir Alan Su­gar has lit­tle time for. “What we’ve been play­ing at is fi­nan­cial Dis­ney­world,” says The Ap­pren­tice host of money men who have brought us the credit crunch Speak­ing at a busi­ness con­fer­ence in Har­ro­gate Sir Alan praised Gor­don Brown’s gov­ern­ment over their han­dling of the cri­sis, ob­serv­ing: “We in Eng­land are much bet­ter off than the Amer­i­cans. They have got some se­ri­ous, se­ri­ous prob­lems.” Thank­fully, the ty­coon him­self has avoided los­ing huge sums on the plung­ing stock mar­ket. “I’ve never re­ally been a gam­bler,” he con­fides.

Pink, real name Ale­cia Moore, has spo­ken for the first time of her heart­break af­ter split­ting from her hus­band, motorcross racer Carey Hart. The pair sep­a­rated ear­lier this year af­ter two years of mar­riage, and Moore has found a way of deal­ing with her pain. “I’m very lucky that I can write how I feel and put it into mu­sic oth­er­wise I would be a men­tal pa­tient by now,” she told the Daily Mir­ror. The singer reached num­ber one this week with her new sin­gle, So What, which she says is about “anger, frus­tra­tion [and] heart­break”.
