Justin Timberlake buys stake in MySpace

Justin Timberlake buys stake in MySpaceThe site was the most popular social networking forum in 2006, until its users flocked to Facebook.com - but Timberlake is hoping to change that by focusing on music.

After taking a stake of the website, the star will take on a lead role as part of MySpace''s 35-million-dollars acquisition by online advertising network Specific Media from News Corporation, reports Contactmusic.

A statement from the pop star/actor read, "There''s a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favorite entertainers, listen to music, watch videos, share and discover cool stuff and just connect.

"Myspace has the potential to be that place. Art is inspired by people and vice versa, so there''s a natural social component to entertainment. I''m excited to help revitalize Myspace by using its social media platform to bring artists and fans together in one community,” the statement added.

Specific Ceo Tim Vanderhook adds, "We look forward to partnering with someone as talented as Justin Timberlake who will lead the business strategy with his creative ideas and vision for transforming MySpace.”

Lady Gaga sued for charity scam

Lady Gaga sued for charity scamLady Gaga has been accused of pocketing proceeds from the sales of 'We Pray for Japan' wristbands and the bizarre singer is now facing legal action.

Michigan Law firm 1-800-LAW-FIRM has slapped a $5 million lawsuit against Gaga, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"I'm suing Lady Gaga simply to hold her accountable for giving the money that she was raising for charity to the cause that she was trying to raise it for," said Ari Kresch, an attorney for the firm.

Firm partner Alyson Oliver claimed that Gaga refused to fully disclose how much of the money from the sales of the wristbands goes to the Japanese victims.

"When we tried to communicate with the defendants in this lawsuit, all we got was, 'well, some of the money is being retained, but we don't really know how much'," Oliver told FOX news station.

"If the money was going to the right place rather than into the defendant's pocket, then I hope that our effort helps that," Oliver added.

Cheryl Cole 'happy' with time offCheryl Cole is content with no longer being in the public eye and is the ''happiest'' she has been for a ''long time''.

Cheryl Cole is the "happiest" she has been in a "long, long time".

The 27-year-old beauty - who was dropped from the US version of 'The X Factor' and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger last month - intends to take time out from showbiz and is enjoying the lack of pressure in her life to keep working.

Speaking through a friend, Cheryl told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "I'm under no pressure and I actually feel the happiest I've felt in a long, long time. I've got a big place, I have enough money - and if I never get photographed again, I don't care.

"I've always had people saying, 'We need to put an album out, we need to record it now' and, 'We have to rehearse for this tour and that tour' and, 'Now we need to do auditions for 'X Factor'.'

"I need to take a good few months off now - something I've never done before."

Cheryl - who in the last 18 months has dealt with the breakdown of her marriage to soccer star Ashley Cole and suffered with the potentially deadly infection malaria - is "not interested" in continuing a life of trying to "squeeze into tight dresses and fake tan".

A source added: "She's had enough of all the hustle, bustle, backbiting and bitching that goes with keeping up a career in showbiz - especially in America.

"She's learned in the most severe way how cruel and demoralising the industry can be. Her whole life has been spent squeezing into tiny dresses and fake tan but she's just not interested any more. All she ever wanted was to be a singer."

Doctor's adviced Singer Amy Winehouse's to quite drinking

Doctor's adviced Singer Amy Winehouse's to quite drinkingSinger Amy Winehouse's doctors have given her an ultimatum - either she should quit drinking or brace herself for the worst.

The 27-year-old is being currently treated at rehabilitation clinic The Priory, where she checked into last week, reports thesun.co.uk.

"This is the last chance saloon for Amy. Doctors have come down hard on her because of the severity of her situation. It's a harsh reality but she had to hear it," said a source.

Winehouse' father Mitch and boyfriend Reg Traviss were also beside her when she was being advised by doctors and they begged her to heed the professionals' advice.

"They are worried about her. Mitch has been down this road before during Amy's drug addiction. But she is there of her own accord this time and wants to sort herself out," the source said.

Winehouse has heard harsh words at the clinic earlier too, during her several stints between 2007 and 2009 when she needed help with her addiction to drugs.

She hopes to sort out her problems for a number of shows in Europe this summer. She is due to perform in Serbia, Greece, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary and Romania.
