The A-list actress is said to be designing a jewellery line for ex-asprey CEO Robert Procop to include high-end necklaces, rings and earrings. The collection is in aid of Angelina’s charity- Education Partnership for Children of Conflict. Jolie’s already a fan of Procop’s jewels, having worn a specially designed black and gold rose necklace of his to the premier of her movie Salt.
Unfortunately for any Angie fans desperate to get your hands on the statement jewels, you’re out of luck; the one of a kind collection is to be sold exclusively to Procop’s clients, Boo.
Jolie has previously designed a collection for Procop with the help of gorgeous hubby Brad Pitt.

Finally. There’s been drama, tantrums, and tears, but after 12 long weeks the X-Factor winner is finally going to be announced this weekend. On Saturday night the acts will perform with A-List stars, then one will get the boot. A further elimination will be made halfway through Sunday’s show, and finally, the winner will be announced securing that dream record contract.
The acts’ celebrity pairings have been announced, and it’s a good line up. Matt is to duet with Rihanna, Christina Aguilera with Rebecca, Cher with Will.I.Am, and One Direction with Robbie Williams. We’re not sure how Matt and Rihanna will gel together, and can’t help but feel he would have worked better with Christina. Christina’s voice and confidence is so powerful it may overpower Rebecca, so let’s hope the shy Liverpool lass gives a star performance on the night. Whatever happens, it’s bound to be eventful.
The atmosphere in the X-Factor camp is tense, with contestants more nervous than ever to make it to the finish line. It has been reported that Cher Lloyd is a nervous wreck after hearing there is a growing hate campaign against her. The fragile star admitted: ‘I expect to be going on Saturday. It’s fine. I’ve made it this far and I’m very lucky’. She continued, ‘I know I’m not going to win it, come on, I’m a rapper. Normally people like me don’t get a chance on these shows’.
Simon admitted Cher to be a ‘bit of a brat’ but added ’she is respectful and fun to work with’. Allegedly, each act has recorded their winning single in preparation for the weekend. Cowell has said “Each artist recorded their own song that is geared towards them, they’ve each got their own song’. Perhaps unsuprising given the differing styles of all the acts.
With shock results almost every week, anything could happen, but the current odds are as follows:
Matt Cardle 10/11 favourite to win, Rebecca Ferguson 5/2, One Direction 11/4, Cher 20/1.
so who will you be voting for??

It looks like Cher Lloyd has got herself another celebrity admirer in the form of fashion icon and living legend Ms Moss. According to Now magazine, Kate’s fascinated by the 17 year olds style and personality, and predicts a big career for her in fashion if not music. She’s not the first to express an interest in Cher however, with Will.i.am and JayZ also interested in working with her, and Henry Holland having made a Cher Lloyd slogan t-shirt.
Kate is allegedly impressed by Cher’s ’swagger’, and an insider was reported to have said “She’s waiting until the show finishes but she’s spoken to a few fashion experts about it and they’ve all agreed Cher could be one to watch in the industry in the next few years.”
Something tells us no matter who wins the X-Factor, the in demand Miss Lloyd’s going to stick around for a long time.

Kristin Davis has revealed we might be expecting a third film in the Sex and the City franchise, despite critics and the public lambasting the second movie. The second movie, filmed in Abu Dhabi, was widley criticised for being racist and degrading to women, and did not do as well at the box office as expected. Yet a third movie could be on the cards according to Davis “We all want to do it,” she told the Metro ”I guess it’s just figuring out whether we can move the characters forward any more.” “I would love to do a third movie”.
Chris North, who plays Mr Big seemed to think differently however, telling a magazine “It’s over. The franchise is dead. The press killed it”.
A third film has not yet been confirmed by the SATC writers, so until then, watch this space….

Rumour has it, X-Factor heart throb Matt Cardle is smitten with the X-Factor’s head stylist 33 year old Grace Woodward. It has been claimed the pair have been spending a great deal of time together, despite Matt needing less styling than some of the other acts on the show.
A source has said “‘They have become very close and he finds it easy to relax around her. They constantly have their arms around each other. “It’s not like they can go out for dates but they have been caught cuddling and have shared a kiss or three. They are both single so they don’t see any harm in this.”
Grace is so keen on Matt, she has said to have nicknamed him “Matt Cuddles”
Matt’s ex-girlfriend Lauren Cutmore is said to be less than happy, as sources say she was sure they would reunite when the show was over. She’s not the only one annoyed by the new relationship though, Simon Cowell is sure to be irked by the news, as he made a rule that all contestants are banned from dating during their time on the show in order to keep focussed.
Grace is said to have encouraged Matt to embrace his sexy side for the shows, which saw him looking utterly desirable last week in a black leather jacket and jeans. The news is bound to upset his army of female fans, so we can only hope the rumours aren’t true…

According to reports, following last week’s debacle, X Factor bosses have revealed this week will bring another double elimination, whereby the act with the lowest number of votes will be booted straight off, and the remaining two in the bottom three will fight for survival in the sing off.
This weekends performances are said to be Elton John themed, which may come as a surprise considering Elton slated the show and the ‘lack of talent’ just a few weeks ago, ranting “Its become a boring, a***-paralysingly brain crippling”.
How will the likes of rapper Cher cope with this, as Elton’s style can surely only be described as a million miles away from her own. Will the Waissel survive another week, or have the public well and truly had enough? Will Wagner’s luck soon run out? We can’t wait to find out, in another week of X-Factor madness.
Who do you think should go?

Will.i.am is back with a new song, and it’s no surprise that he’s found space to drop a little Cheryl Cole in it. The song, ‘Check It Out’, featuring America’s latest and greatest, Nicki Minaj, borrows the famous Buggle’s ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ tune while throwing in Minaj’s raw style and a relatively catchy chorus. So where does Cheryl Cole come into it? Well, technically, she doesn’t.
The video shows Minaj and Will.I.am rapping and singing in a variety of eccentric outfits (or sunglasses, in Will.i.am’s case), while Cole dances around and pulls comical expressions in a pair of black latex leggings and a beige body suit looking out of place – almost as if someone’s decided to make a mash up of two videos. Admittedly, it kind of works. The cheesy-pop theme of the video and the obnoxious J-pop graphics gives a garish, Eighties vibe, but it’s an obvious plug; Cheryl only features in one version of this video – the UK version. At least we know she still has a sense of humour…
