Rihanna warning over Chris Brown attack

Singer Rihanna has spoken on US TV for the first time about being assaulted by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, warning that "it could happen to anybody".

The 21-year-old, who was interviewed on ABC's Good Morning America programme, also called her brief reconciliation with Brown "embarrassing".
"I realised that my selfish decision for love could result in some young girl getting killed," she added. Chris Brown was sentenced to five years' probation after February's assault. 'I didn't do it' The singer, who has since apologised to fans for his actions, was also given a community service order. MTV is due to air an interview with Brown on Friday. Rihanna, who is due to release her new album Rated R on 23 November, told interviewer Diane Sawyer: "I am strong. This happened to me. I didn't cause this. I didn't do it." The singer added of her decision to reconcile with Brown after the assault: "So far in love, so unconditional, that I went back. That's not what I want to teach people." The Barbadian-born star admitted that the blaze of publicity that surrounded the attack had been hard to deal with. "There are a lot of women who have experienced this, but not in public. That made it really difficult. I thought 'there goes my little bit of privacy.' "It's something that nobody wants anybody to know. So here I am, the whole world knowing," she said. Rihanna offered advice to women tempted to go back to their partner after an incidence of domestic violence: "Don't react off of love." Further extracts of ABC's interview with the singer will be screened on Friday in the US.

British Airways and Iberia agree merger plans

The merger has been a long time in the planning.
British Airways and Spanish airline Iberia have reached a preliminary agreement for a merger expected to be completed in late 2010.

The merger, which is expected to get regulatory backing, would create the world's third biggest airline.
Under its terms, Iberia would take a 45% stake and BA, which last week reported a six-month pre-tax loss of £292m, a 55% stake in the new company. Iberia says it can pull out if BA fails to resolve its pension deficit problem. 'Growing dominance' "The merger will create a strong European airline well able to compete in the 21st Century," said BA chief executive Willie Walsh. "Both airlines will retain their brands and heritage while achieving significant synergies as a combined force." The deal would create an airline with 419 aircraft flying to 205 separate destinations, and would save the two partners 400m euros ($594m; £358m) in costs a year, the two carriers said. Iberia's chairman Antonio Vazquez will take the same role at the new company, while Mr Walsh will become its chief executive. Aviation analyst Douglas McNeil of Astaire Securities said BA would be "relieved" to have finally got the merger deal in place. "I think BA will be pleased with the deal they have got - the headquarters in London, led by Willie Walsh, and BA will be majority shareholder," he said. Simon Calder, travel editor of the Independent, agreed that the planned merger was a good deal for BA. "British Airways has come out of this pretty well, it will be the dominant partner," he said. "Don't expect any great benefits [after the merger] if you are a passenger, but if you are a shareholder it could be a different story." News of the deal did not go down well with Virgin Atlantic, one of BA's big competitors in the UK, which raised concerns about the new company's market share. "The merger will increase BA's dominance at Heathrow with 44% of take-off and landing slots this winter. It is impossible for any other airline to replicate their scale," the airline said. Big losses Both BA and Iberia have been losing money during the downturn as businesses and individuals cut back on flying. Mr Walsh has previously said a merger would help both firms cope with the recession. The firms have considered a tie-up for a number of years and held talks on the issue in July 2008. BA already owns 13.5% of Iberia and the two carriers have a code-sharing agreement under the One World grouping of airlines, which allows them to sell seats on each other's services. If a merger is formalised, it would still require regulatory approval from the European Commission. However, analysts say a deal is likely to be cleared, pointing to Air France's successful merger with Dutch airline KLM in 2004. Financial woes The agreement comes a week after BA said it would cut a further 1,200 jobs, as it reported a first-half loss for the first time.

five films vying to win the Oscar

Disney-Pixar's Up is a strong contender for the award
There will be five films vying to win the Oscar for best animated film next year after a record 20 movies were submitted for consideration.

Most years only see three nominations, as under Academy rules at least 16 eligible films must be submitted to expand the category to five runners.
Box office hit Up, Fantastic Mr Fox, Monsters vs Aliens and Coraline are all on the list of hopefuls. The nominations will be announced on 2 February with the ceremony on 7 March. Best picture Also in the running include Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, A Christmas Carol, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. Since the best animated film category was introduced in 2002 - which was won by Shrek - there has only been one year where five films have been nominated for the award. In 2003, 17 films qualified and Japanese film-maker Hayao Miyazaki's fantasy Spirited Away claimed the Oscar. Films submitted in the animated feature film category can also run in other categories including best picture, but the only film ever to do so to date was Disney classic Beauty and the Beast in 1991.

Michael Jackson Moonwalk glove auctioned for $350,000

The glove worn by Michael Jackson
A rhinestone-encrusted glove worn by Michael Jackson the first time he performed the Moonwalk has been sold at auction for $350,000 (£212,000).

The glove, among 70 items belonging to the late singer which went on sale in New York, was sold for nine times the expected price.
A jacket worn by Jackson on his 1989 "Bad" tour was sold for $225,000 while a fedora hat went for $22,000. The auction in New York attracted thousands of bidders around the world. Auctioneer Darren Julien said the 1983 television appearance when Jackson first displayed the Moonwalk - wearing the glove - had been his "most historical performance". The glove was bought by a Hong Kong businessman Mr Julien said he had had no idea the sale would be so big. Prices for Michael Jackson memorabilia now outstrip those for items belonging to Elvis Presley or Marilyn Monroe, he added. "It's a tribute to his life and career - he's truly an amazing artist," said Mr Julien. The glove was bought by Hong Kong businessman Hoffman Ma on behalf of a hotel in Macau China, where it will now go on display. Including taxes and fees, the final amount paid was $420,000. Michael Jackson died at his home in Los Angeles in June at the age of 50 after a drugs overdose.

Robbie Williams denies engagement

Robbie Williams has said he is not engaged to his girlfriend, despite his mother appearing to confirm the news.

Under the heading "Robbie And Ayda: Are They Or Aren't They?" on his official website, Williams simply wrote: "Hey all. We are not engaged. Rob."
Speculation began when the singer made an off-the-cuff proposal to Ayda Field on an Australian radio show. His spokesman said it was a joke, but his mother Jan later told BBC 5 live he had been planning to pop the question. After Williams published his denial on Saturday, his spokesman said: "We have no more comment on this apart from to confirm that they are not engaged." On Friday, Mrs Williams told 5 live that her son had revealed his proposal plans to her "a week ago". She said she was "really pleased" for the couple, adding: "I've always wanted a daughter-in-law." Ayda Field has been with Robbie for almost three years Asked when she thought the wedding would be, Mrs Williams said: "I don't think it will be that far in the not-too-distant future, but that's all I'm going to say on that." She added: "I'm very excited. I'm really pleased. They've been together for nearly three years, so it's about time. "She's a great mate, as well as a lover. She's got all the qualities that he needs in a girl. It's a lovely match." Williams had appeared on Australian radio station 2Day FM, where breakfast show host Jackie Henderson told him that Sydney had a reputation for celebrity proposals. Turning to his girlfriend, the 35-year-old said: "Ayda Field, I love you so much. Do you mind being my betrothed for the end of time?" Field, who was in the studio at the time, laughed before saying: "I would love to be your betrothed 'til the end of time." The star performed at the Aria Awards in Australia on Friday He then borrowed Henderson's frog ring and slipped it onto Field's finger. For the remainder of the show, Williams accepted the congratulations of fans who phoned in to speak to him. But when one caller asked Williams to divulge the last lie he had told, he replied: "I told one this morning. "I mainly just tell people the truth. With the exception of a few white lies here and there." Earlier this month, Williams told Jonathan Ross on his chat show that he thought he was "going to be a bachelor" until he met Field. "I was introduced to Ayda and things just changed. She's a wonderful person and I'm in love. She's really broody and I'm getting there," he said. by:bbc

Katey Sagal relishing her role on hit 'Sons of Anarchy

Katey Sagal has found a new lease on TV life with FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy.’
New York - Season two of the FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" is primed to end with bloody payback. The Sons, a fierce and fiercely close-knit motorcycle club, are set to wreak havoc on enemy forces that have cut into their outlaw livelihood and horned in on their turf (the curiously named town of Charming, Calif.).
Further upping the ante for the season conclusion (Tuesday at 10 p.m.): The club must teach the ultimate lesson to that band of white separatists who, at the season's start, sent the club a message by seizing and raping its matriarch, Gemma Morrow. Played by Katey Sagal, Gemma is dishy, shrewd and tough as wife to the club's president (Ron Perlman) and mother of its rival for the throne (Charlie Hunnam). But recoiling from the shock and shame of her attack, she has shown viewers a previously unglimpsed vulnerable side. "This season I had to keep asking myself, 'Who is she, vulnerable?'" says Sagal. For three seasons she starred on the ABC comedy "8 Simple Rules," which was rocked by the sudden death of co-star John Ritter early its second year. Gemma came into her life thanks to her husband, Kurt Sutter, who created "Sons of Anarchy" after seven seasons as writer and executive producer of FX's landmark cop drama "The Shield." "He began researching outlaw motorcycle gangs and came up with a great sort of mythology about that world," Sagal explains. Sagal laughs. "I know there's nefarious behavior, and gangs, and guns and gunrunning. (Among the series' large ensemble, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Johnny Lewis, Theo Rossi, Ryan Hurst, William Lucking and Kim Coates play other club members.) Like Gemma, they've got personal issues that don't get much personal scrutiny. "Those people are all about shame, guilt, denial, secrets," says Sagal. At the same time, these are not goons or buffoons, any more than Gemma is the cliche motorcycle mama. They're relatable to viewers as fellow members of the nation's least exclusive club: the struggling working class. Business setbacks, and worse, abound for the Sons. "I think that's what viewers are responding to," says Sagal. "The characters' everyday-ness." Now, as Sagal awaits the "Sons" finale (she says she holds off screening each episode until it airs), she plans to fill her hiatus with voicing sessions for "Futurama." Plus making music. An accomplished singer before she started acting, she spent a decade touring with such headliners as Bette Midler, Etta James and Bob Dylan. Only once did she offer him a suggestion: that Gemma - who, like most of the family, consumes plenty of tobacco and pot - go cold turkey.
