In a competitive market, Leon Jackson just couldn't compete with the other 'reality stars'. Leona Lewis was marketed so differently and given a better image, where as Leon was rushed and rough in comparison. Expect him to show up in a pantomime near you this Christmas!

These Zac Efron pictures by Mikael Jansson for the latest edition of Interview magazine show the High School Musical star in a whole new light as he seeks to lose that squeaky clean Disney image. Interview magazine goes on sale next week and the website has the full interview with Zac.

The Apprentice returns for a brand new series next Wednesday (25/03/09) but already one of the contestants has dropped out, leaving 15 other young hopefuls with the arduous task of pleasing multi-millionaire Sir Alan Sugar for the next twelve weeks.
The full candidate picture gallery will be available to see on robmaccaEXTRA in the next few hours, meanwhile watch the video of the Best Bits to remind yourself what happened in the last series of The Apprentice. The candidates were Nicholas, Shazia, Ian, Simon, Lindi, Kevin, Jenny, Jennifer, Sara, Raef, Michael, Lucinda, Alex and Helene. Claire Young was runner up and Lee McQueen got hired.
Four stages are to be placed in the park and most of the tickets will be allocated to local people in Swindon with live coverage on Radio 1 as well as highlights on BBC 3. Tickets for last year's Radio 1 Big Weekend became hot property after it was announced Madonna would be headlining the festival in Kent. Ticket information is available from the official website where you can register your details.

Since new presenters Jeff Stelling and Rachel Riley took over from Des O'Conner and Carol Vorderman in January, viewing figures have failed to increase - now the show is often watched by less than a million viewers. The steady decline saw the show lose half their viewers since 2002 and Countdown's rating no longer appear in Channel 4's Top 10 like it did back in the days of Richard Whiteley.
Some now believe it is only a matter of time before the clock ticks one final time on this once popular TV show.

The original ten date O2 Arena tour sold out on Tuesday in pre-sales, but fans still hadn't been able to get hands on tickets as technical problems set in. The Michael Jackson tour has become the fastest selling in history and tickets have already been making their way to ebay - with massive profits for those selling.
Questions have been raised about the health of the 50 year-old pop star and whether Michael will be able to endure such a long residency at London's O2 Arena. With so many tickets being sold, some fans who missed out on the hype may yet bag a bargain if there are a glut of spare tickets on the market. Previous acts like the Spice Girls, sold out tickets in record time yet fans were able to buy cheap tickets via ebay nearer the concert dates.

The incident happened around 2am, Joaquin Phoenix had ventured onto the stage wearing a suit and smoking a cigarette but was hardly audible when a member of the audience began heckling the actor-turned -rapper - he jumped into the audience and began beating the man until security came and pulled him away.

The footage was recorded by his brother-in-law Casey Affleck, who just happened to be making a documentary about him. This has lead some to believe the whole thing could have been staged, watch the video below and let me know what you think................

The former Spice Girl is now 36 years-old and seems destined for the single life as it seems she once again got cold feet. According to a 'source' Geri, "woke up one morning last week and decided she just wasn’t the marrying type. She loved being in a relationship but decided that all she needs is her daughter Bluebell to keep her happy."

The previous deal between PRS, which represents music publishers, has now run out and the Society were looking at striking a much better deal with YouTube but it seems the two are poles apart.
Steve Porter, head of the PRS, said he was "outraged, shocked and disappointed" by the move and said it harmed both music fans and artists, urging YouTube chiefs to reconsider.
Walker suggested that a compromise could be reached, though, saying: "We feel we are so far apart that we have to remove content while we continue to negotiate with the PRS."

British rockers Oasis have cancelled their dates in China as it appears the Chinese authorities would have banned them because of claims that Noel Gallagher has links to Tibet. The Chinese would be eager to avoid another high profile artist making a public statement on stage, following Bjork much publicised shouting of "Tibet!" at the end of her concert in Shanghai.
