MADONNA SAY'S NEW YORK CITY DIED

Pop singer Madonna moved from New York to London, because New York City has lost its status as the world’s cultural capital.The Michigan native moved to New York as a 19-year-old in 1977 and lived in the big city for much of her successful career, only relocating to London in 1997 after falling in love with British film maker Guy Ritchie, who she wed three years later. Now Madonna has revealed she turned her back on Manhattan because the city is no longer the vibrant center of the arts it once was. She tells Vanity Fair magazine, "New York City is not the same place it used to be. It still has great energy. I still put my finger in the socket."But it doesn’t feel alive, crackling with that synergy between the art world and music world and fashion world that was happening in the ’80s."
Editors Note: I agree Madonna. I remember dancing with you at Danceteria in the 80's. Everything has changed in New York City because the most talented people that ran the parties have either died from Aids or can't afford to live here anymore. Many of the artists have moved to Miami or Hollywood where they can get cheap rent. Little studio apartments are going for two thousand a month at least. One bedrooms are going for three thousand. The greedy landlords are forcing clubs, restaurants and every other business to close because they can't afford the rent increases. One club I know was paying 8 thousand a month, and when his lease was up the landlord wanted 38 thousand a month to renew. The talent is gone and that means the fun times are also gone. Very rarely do I go to a event that can compare to the parties of the 80's. New York City is only for the rich now and the annoying tourist's !

HEIDI KLUM AMAZED SHES HOTTEST MODEL

Heidi Klum With Family

Supermodel Heidi Klum is amazed to have landed the coveted title of the world’s hottest model, because she is a mother to three small children.The Project Runway star last month beat Brazilian babe Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima to land at number one on the Models.com list. Klum has a three-year-old daughter, Helene, with ex-boyfriend and Formula 1 boss Flavio Briatore, and two sons, Henry and Johan, with her husband Seal. And the 35-year-old is convinced landing the title is a major step forward. She says, "It felt great, especially after having three children. It’s brilliant for all moms because women sometimes worry whether they can still be sexy after having kids or how they’re going to be perceived by people for being a mom. I had employers who thought if I had a child I wouldn’t fit in the sexiest women category any more. But I think it’s different these days."

KELLY ROWLAND REFUSES TO GO GREEN

Singing star Kelly Rowland has made no plans to trade in her gas guzzling sports utility vehicle (SUV) for a more environmentally friendly car, because green cars don’t "look fun". The greedy singer admits she is frequently made to feel guilty about her Range Rover’s lack of green credentials, but she blames her Texan roots for instilling in her a love of big cars. And she is adamant she will never give up her "baby" - at least until Range Rover engineers develop a stylish hybrid she can be proud of. She says, "I prefer a big truck like a Range Rover. I drive one when I’m at home. I’m totally a Texas girl at heart. Put me in a cowboy hat behind the wheel of a massive truck and I’m happy."Driving a truck has been my dream since I was a little girl. My car’s like a baby, it means everything to me. I think about her every day."My sister’s hugely into environmental stuff, and she gives me a lot of heartache about it. She’s got a Lexus Hybrid car but that thing doesn’t look fun. When Range Rover makes a hybrid I’ll go green. Until then, my apologies to Planet Earth."
Editors Note: It's people like Kelly Rowland that are destroying the earth. They are also the ones responsible for the high gas prices. If they weren't guzzling gas, there would be plenty around and prices would be cheap. Shame on you Kelly !

NO EVIDENCE ON PRINCESS DIANA MURDER

The coroner presiding over the inquest into the death of Princess Diana has told a London court there is "no evidence" to suggest she was murdered.The British royal and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were killed in a Paris, France car crash in 1997.Fayed’s father, business mogul Mohamed Al Fayed, is convinced the couple was murdered, and, during his testimony at the High Court in February, maintained his belief that they were assassinated by British security services acting on the orders of Prince Philip, the husband of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II.The inquest aims to establish whether Diana and Dodi were the victims of an accident, or if they were the targets of an assassination plot headed by the British royal family, as claimed by Al Fayed. However, summing up the inquest for the jury today, Lord Justice Scott Baker dismissed Al Fayed’s claims saying: "Various propositions… have been shown to be so demonstrably without foundation that they are no longer being pursued by Mohamed Al Fayed’s lawyer, even if he still continues to believe in their truth in his own mind."They are not being pursued because there is not a shred of evidence to support them… There is no evidence that the Duke Of Edinburgh (Prince Philip) ordered Diana’s execution, and there is no evidence that the secret intelligence service or any other government agency organized it." Lord Baker also criticised the testimony of Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell, who was recently caught on videotape confessing to holding back information from the inquest.The coroner admitted it was regrettable that there had been some witnesses "who it appears have told lies in the witness box or elsewhere", and named Burrell as one of those who were "liars by their own admission". Lord Baker then gave the jury five verdict options. They included: unlawful killing by grossly negligent driving of the paparazzi in the following vehicles; unlawful killing through the gross negligence of the driver Henri Paul; and unlawful killing by the grossly negligent driving of both the following vehicles and Paul.The members of the jury were also given the choices of accidental death or an open verdict if they feel there is insufficient evidence to reach a majority conclusion.They are likely to be sent out to consider their verdict later this week

BAHAMAS RULES DANIEL SMITH ACCIDENT

Former supermodel Anna Nicole Smiths son Daniel died from an accidental drug overdose, a jury looking into his death has ruled. Daniel died in the Bahamas in September 2006, just three days after his mother Anna Nicole Smith gave birth to baby daughter Dannielynn.The so-called inquest, pretending to establish the 20-year-old’s exact cause of death, and, in the five months since its November start, has heard testimony from Anna Nicole’s former lovers Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern, as well as a number of Daniel’s friends. Autopsy results released in December found Smith died as a result of a lethal combination of methadone and anti-depressants Zoloft and Lexapro. Earlier this month, the magistrate instructed the jury to discuss four possible options as the cause of death - accident, misadventure, non-dependent drug use and an open verdict - after banning the option of homicide.The seven-member jury at a Nassau, Bahamas deliberated for less than two hours before delivering its verdict today. The jury has recommended no criminal charges be filed.
Editors Note: Boycott the Bahamas! This whole affair has been a sham. Imagine if in the United States we waited over a year and a half to investigate a death of a famous Bahamian. There would be a outcry heard around the world.

BUZZ FOTO ON PROPOSED BRITNEY LAW

Worldwide Buzz Foto Agency owners Brad Elterman and Henry Flores speak on the new proposed Britney Spears law in Los Angeles.
Britney Spears


We all read in the press about how certain celebrities are not amused with the tactics of some paparazzi. Now the City of Los Angeles is trying to get a law passed that will place a 20 yard bubble around celebrities when they are out in public. In our opinion the, the law will not work and can not be enforced. What will happen when you have a "real" news story and you have media outlets like the Los Angeles Times, NY Daily News or CNN needing to get access to the celebrity for a quote or photo of the day. Celebrities are treated like royalty and there will be days when it can get uncomfortable for them. They all knew upfront that is was part of the business. Remember the line in Godfather # 2 where Hyman Roth spits out to Michael that “this is the business we have chosen”. Well this is the business that they have chosen and in our opinion they are delighted to use the media when they are breaking into the industry, but once they have made it, they want to be able to have the privilege now to be able to turn it off at their command. The media is not a faucet. In our opinion things have gotten out of control due to the sheer numbers of paparazzi out there today. In our opinion, some have also gone way overboard. We at Buzz Foto like our photos to reflect "Life Imitating Art" and that cannot be achieved in the middle of a dog pack of paparazzi. In our opinion there needs to be a code of ethics in our industry. Scenes of paparazzi following Britney Spears going to a rest room in a gas station border on harassment. Reports of one paparazzo beating up another for a photograph is horrifying. In our opinion proposed Britney Law will never fly, but the City Of Los Angeles should be concerned that California laws are not being broken. That should include that the paparazzi are here working legally in the USA, they have a valid California drivers license, auto insurance and that there is no visual trespass.
Editors Note: Brad Elterman and Henry Flores own world wide photo agency Buzz Foto. Their photos grace the covers of magazines and newspapers across the world. They are highly respected by the celebrities they photograph. To them, taking photos is a art form. This fact has already been proven with famed photographer Ron Galella's pictures of Jackie Kennedy hanging in The Museum Of Modern Art. We here at Times Square Gossip believe it is time to get rid of these animal paparazzi packs stalking the stars. We at Times Square Gossip give you all the gossip and photos, all taken with love and class !

ROLLING STONE'S KEITH RICHARDS STONED

Times Square Marijuana

Another Rolling Stones icon Keith Richards is refusing to turn his back on drugs completely after a number of brushes with death and he still smokes marijuana "all the damn time".The guitarist was addicted to heroin at the height of the hell raising band’s 1970s heyday.But his bad experiences haven’t deterred him from maintaining one last illegal vice: "People thought I was going to die. I never did - as you can see. The drugs? Oh yeah, they were great."Drugs now? it’s a very dodgy subject. I smoke my head off. I smoke weed all the damn time."There, you’ve got it. But that’s my benign weed. That’s all I take, that’s all I do. But I do smoke - and I’ve got some really good hash." And Richards has a grudge with officials who have banned smoking in public spaces in Britain, Ireland, California and New York: "This worldwide smoking ban is draconian, socially, politically-correct bullshit. They’ll get over it.It’s like Prohibition - they tried to stop booze once. Ha! Look what happened.It ruined America."
Legalize Marijuana Now !

BAM MARGERA SPEAKS ON STEVE O DRUGS

Bam Margera

Bam Margera gave his Jackass co-star Steve O a month to live earlier this year, because his drug use had gotten way out of control. Margera admits Steve-O turned to narcotics as soon as he woke up, and would be topping up his highs all day. He tells Usmagazine.com, "I was like, ‘I give him a month, and he’ll be dead, guaranteed.’" The troubled 33-year-old was charged with possession of cocaine earlier this month and just days after the incident, Steve-O checked himself into Los Angeles California's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he received treatment following a reported suicide attempt. Margera insists it was fellow Jackass co-star Johnny Knoxville who forced Steve-O to face his demons and seek help. Although he was convinced Steve-O was heading for an early grave, Margera hopes his friend’s spell in rehab, which started on March 16th will save his life. Margera adds, "He’s actually in high spirits from what I hear. He’s happy in there and is making jokes about himself like, ‘I officially made it to the loony bin!’ He’s a character."He’s doing really good, which everybody is real glad about. He was really bonkers."

TROJAN OFFERS JOHNNY DEPP 10 MILLION

Johnny Depp

Sexy Hollywood actor is being offered a $10 million to become the face for condom giant Trojan. According to published reports, Trojan bosses believe the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor, who is also an advocate of safe sex, would considerably boost sales of their Magnum products and help inspire an anti-Aids campaign to send free condoms to less economically developed countries. Although Depp has yet to make a formal decision about the offer, safe sex campaigners have already expressed their approval of Trojan’s choice. A spokeswoman for California’s Safer Sex Awareness Campaign says, "We’d welcome seeing a major Hollywood star helping to promote the cause. And there’s no one bigger than Johnny."

MADONNA WANTS REMAKE OF CASABLANCA

Singing superstar Madonna wants to start up her acting career again with a remake of 1942 classic Casablanca.The material girl is reportedly keen to modernize the Oscar-winning romantic drama, which originally starred Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, and possibly set the film in Iraq. But the planned project has been met by stiff opposition among Hollywood executives, according to the British newspaper The Mail On Sunday. A close studio source says, "She is still determined to make it in the movies. She and her representatives have been shopping around a project which is a remake of Casablanca. The reception has been lukewarm to say the least. No one can understand why she wants to redo what many people consider the greatest film of all time."Madonna is talking about taking the Ingrid Bergman role for herself, even though Bergman was in her 20s when she played Ilsa (Lund) and Madonna is now nearly 50."She wants to update the story and maybe set it in a modern war zone such as Iraq. There is no script yet. Madonna and her people are testing the waters to see if this is the right vehicle for her and if a major studio will get behind the project." A spokesperson for Madonna has so far refused to comment on the reports. Madonna’s last big-screen outing, in 2002’s Swept Away, was panned by critics and she has since moved behind the camera to direct forthcoming movie Filth and Wisdom.

ROD STEWART WANTS CALIFORNIA MOVE

Rock icon Rod Stewart wants to leave England and move over to Los Angeles California, because the U.S. is a "better" place to bring up his children.The rock star reportedly plans to sell off his $12 million mansion in Essex, England, the house he has called home for 20 years, and relocate to sunny L.A. with his wife Penny Lancaster and their two-year-old son, Alastair. And the couple is hoping to add to their family once they are settled in the United States. A source says, "The house in Essex is very large with a full team of staff and costs hundreds of thousands of pounds to maintain. That kind of spending is difficult to justify if the family are hardly ever there."Rod and Penny have also made no secret of their desire to give Alastair a little brother or sister as soon as possible. And when they do, they have decided they want to make L.A. their base. Most of Rod’s other kids live out there and the weather and quality of life seem more suitable for raising a young family." But Stewart, who has six other grown up children from previous relationships, will not need to spend his estimated $200 million fortune on a new home, he already owns a 20 bedroom mansion there.

Poor Britney Spears lost out on the huge 2007 summer hit when her representatives turned down worldwide smash Umbrella, which then became a hit for Rihanna. Singer/songwriter Taio Cruz has revealed that Spears and Mary J. Blige were both offered the song, but they both turned it down.
