Aqua, Barbie Girl Rolling Stone journalist Andy Greene wrote of the list on the magazines website: While the 1990s certainly had amazing music, not everything on the radio was Nirvana or Radiohead.

OPRAHS FEAR PALO ALTO, California: Oprah Winfrey has admitted she experienced nearly debilitating fear before launching her cable network.

VIRALHERO LOS ANGELES: Actor Ryan Gosling is embarrassed a video showing him breaking up a street fight in New York has gone viral online, because he feels he should have kept his nose out of it. The Notebook star was strolling through the streets of the Big Apples East Village when he saw two men brawling in the middle of the road. Gosling was hailed a hero for stepping in to separate the pair, who were fighting over the ownership of a painting, but the actor is adamant he now regrets his actions.

But its unclear whether its original stars (Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder and Geena Davis) will be involved or not. Deadline site reported that Tim Burton, who directed the original flick, will have a connection to the new project. Starlets resort to knife Megan Fox Lindsay Lohan LOS ANGELES: They have youth on their side but a slew of young Hollywood beauties opt for knives, needles and not-so-subtle plumping procedures, FOXNews.com reported yesterday. The blogosphere has been abuzz this week with 17-yearold Ali Lohans new face, sparking speculation on how her cheek bones suddenly became strikingly high and her lips inflated. Her big sister Lindsay Lohan, 25, had large lip and cheek injections before Kim Kardashians big wedding in late August, plastic surgery experts told the New York Post. But it is not just the Lohans who are getting attention for their premature-plumping. Last year, Transformers bombshell Megan Fox, 25, sparked rumours of plastic surgery after debuting a bizarre mask-like face at a movie premiere, though she denied the report. But a group of UK actresses, including Kate Winslet, 35, Rachel Weisz, 41, and Emma Thompson, 52, have bonded together in the British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League, vowing to age gracefully and resist the lure of the surgeons knife. (Plastic surgery) goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty, Winslet told The Independent newspaper.

The shows organisers said they were in talks with Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller on the hit sitcom. One of the team had a meeting with David last week. He is definitely on board, but it is all to be confirmed, a representative for the show said. Repeats of the series, which started in 1994, are still shown in Australia on GEM and Foxtel.
