Miley Cyrus engaged?

These days, it seems the “Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus is doing everything she can to get her boyfriend actor Liam Hemsworth to propose. It’s either that or he’ll have to run far, far away from her, considering she’s already tweeted a picture of her freshly manicured hand, which oh-so-unintentionally showcases a huge diamond ring, reports IANS. This has fuelled rumours of a supposed engagement between the two lovebirds. To top it all off, the public is on Hemsworth’s case these days on whether he’s popped the question or not. So Miley’s gotten the public to do her bidding — nicely played girlfriend!

Madhuri Dixit — too expensive?

Bollywood bombshell of yesteryear Madhuri Dixit is dhak dhakking her way back into Bollywood. And boys, this one doesn’t come cheap. She’s asking film-makers for INR50 million for her next venture. That’s the kind of money that many A-list actors like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Vidya Balan demand. She also says she’s not going to make a comeback with just anything — it has to be a bigger, better, women-oriented role. Looks like Vidya Balan has really opened up the eyes and doors for female actors in Bollywood.

Kate Moss makes fun of Enrique

For the first time in his life, singer Enrique Iglesias finally learnt how it feels to be a total loser — thanks to model Kate Moss. While performing “Hero” at in Mexico where the model was in attendance, Iglesias started serenading Moss, saying things like: “Kate Moss, I used to have the biggest crush on you when I was a kid; be nice. I had your poster on my wall.” But the model wasn’t the slightest bit impressed and found his act quite cheesy and lame. In fact, she decided to throw things like water, bread rolls and tissues at him while cackling loudly in front of everyone. Why she didn’t find his act attractive, you ask? We assume it was because he said he had a crush on her when he was a kid, pretty much implying that she was a grandma. And you never tell a model that, even if she is a thousand years old.

Jennifer Aniston — a sugar mommy

When it comes to Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s relationship, Aniston proudly wears the pants. And Theroux isn’t complaining about this arrangement. Because every now and then, (read: every two days), she spends some major moolah on her boytoy. Just recently, she reportedly spent over $500,000 on expensive presents for him. From a $12,000 leather jacket once owned by late actor James Dean and a Genn Ligon painting for $450,000, to splurging on a $33,000 Ducati motorbike and a $24,000 Harley Davidson, it definitely pays to be in Jennifer Aniston’s worked-out arms. We bet John Mayer is squirming, thinking of the cash cow he passed up on!
