FRIDAY OCTOBER 10 2014 ENTERTAINMENT 49 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Kylie takes on Beach Boys classic SYDNEY: Aussie pop star Kylie Minogue has joined a host of musical greats for a rendition of the Beach Boys classic God Only Knows. The BBC Music project features an 80-piece orchestra and 27 of the most recognised voices, and faces, in music. The stylish video gives each star a line to sing and Minogue (pictured) takes her place among stars including Elton John, Chrissie Hynde, Pharrell Williams, Chris Martin and One Direction. Collins loses Scandal and Ted gigs LOS ANGELES: Former 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins has lost another job as New York police officials investigate allegations he molested three children. Collins (pictured) has been fired from TV drama Scandal, a representative from US network ABC has confirmed. Yesterday it was revealed the actor had been fired from the Ted sequel. Collins allegedly confessed during a couples therapy session in 2012 to molesting young girls. That bump isnt going anywhere LOS ANGELES: Actress Jennifer Garner has dismissed rumours shes pregnant again, revealing even close friends get confused by her ever-present baby bump. Speculation recently surfaced that the 42-year-old (pictured) and her husband Ben Affleck were expecting a fourth child. I have had three kids and there is a bump. From now on ladies, I will have a bump ... so lets just all settle in and get used to it, she told Ellen DeGeneres. Seven in a backdown on Boland tell-all tale SYDNEY: The Seven Network has dropped court proceedings over Adam Bolands new tellall memoir after finding nothing in it that breached confidentiality agreements. Seven instigated legal action last week, demanding an early copy of Brekky Central amid fears Boland may air dirty laundry after his controversial defection to Network Ten early last year. But yesterday the network said it was no longer concerned about confidentiality issues, and had discontinued proceedings. Seven was successful in obtaining court orders to prevent further sales until we read the book to check there was no breach of confidentiality, and now that we have read it we have found there is nothing in it so have decided not to continue with further legal proceedings, Seven said. Adam Boland has agreed with Seven to discontinue the proceedings with no order as to costs. Melbourne University Press rush released the memoir on Wednesday, in defiance of the legal threats. Billed as the book that Channel 7 tried to stop, it can already be bought as an ebook, with hard copies expect ed to arrive in stores today. On Wednesday, MUP slammed Sevens attempts to stop the book reaching readers. We dont yield to pressure from commercial operators with deep pockets and a heightened sensitivity to stories about their own industry while intruding into the lives of private citizens with breathtaking insouciance, chief executive Louise Adler said in a statement. Boland, who left Ten and the industry entirely in January, said he thought Sevens legal action was based on a little bit of paranoia. Breakfast shows are worth a lot of money to the networks, they are worried that there could be stuff in the book that undermines their product, he said. Jennifer Lopez, performing here following the Singapore F1 Grand Prix last month, claims shes not a diva, shes just navigating her way through a difficult industry Picture: KAMAL SELLEHUDDIN/GETTY IMAGES J.Lo: Im no diva, Im Jenny from the Block SYDNEY: Pop star Jennifer Lopez says shes spent her entire career trying to undo her reputation as a diva. The one and only Jenny from the Block believes the press unfairly gave her the label when she first shot to fame as she was trying to navigate her way through a strange and busy industry. There were always so many stories like that, especially in the beginning of my career when I first came on the scene that its been my whole career undoing that, Lopez told 2Day FM yesterday. Not because it was true but because it was so in the media. I dont know, sometimes when youre super successful and youre a woman they want to label you a diva or difficult and I dont know why but it seems to have happened. Lopez said once it did happen, it was a tough reputation to break down. It took a lot of years for people to constantly see me over and over again and go thats not true why did they write that? and I would always say I dont know. The 45year-old On the Floor hitmaker said she wouldnt comment on the diva status of fellow singer Ariana Grande because she didnt know her, but acknowledged the pressures of this business when you first start out can be overwhelming. Lopez also admitted that her fame can also be a bit much for the men she dates, such as her former boyfriend, 27-yearold Casper Smart. Theyre adults. They make that choice themselves. Its no secret who theyre getting involved with, Lopez said of the pressures. Bullying? No, just great TV says BBs producer BRISBANE: Big Brothers executive producer Alex Mavroidakis says the controversial eviction of Gemma Kinghorn (pictured) was great television. Mavroidakis has finally spoken about the eviction which caused an outcry on social media, the casting process and the challenges of airing the reality series in a later timeslot. Ms Kinghorns eviction, in which the housemates had to stand behind either her or Jake Richardson, was labelled cruel and bullying by fans. Mavroidakis said that the eviction process was no differ ent to a heated b o a r d r o o m confrontation on The Apprentice or a tribal council elimination on Sur vivor. I think it was great tele vision and Gemma wouldnt have had it any other way, Mavroidakis said. I was surprised (by the reaction) but pleasantly surprised. If people are talking about the show we are doing all right and as soon as people stop caring, then we have a problem. Taylors swift decision Ill wait for Mr Right LOS ANGELES: Pop star Taylor Swift is refraining from jumping back into the dating game until she meets the one in a million man of her dreams.

She tells People magazine, I used to be fascinated by romance. Now Im more realistic. The last couple of years have been ab out defining life on my terms. Being on my own, prioritis ing my girlfriends, my family and my music above everything else and trying things I never thought Id try. Its a really liberating and freeing time.
