Sir Elton bashes 'stripper' Madge

Shh: Portman ties the knot

Natalie Portman and Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied tied the knot in a Jewish ceremony Saturday night in front of family and friends in California's Big Sur, E! reports. The wedding shenanigans were kept extremely private. So much so that guests couldn't bring their phones or take pictures and were shuttled to the wedding with strict security. Portman and Millepied have always kept things fairly private. In December 2010, Portman announced that she was both engaged and expecting a baby with Millepied. Later that year, Millepied said in an interview with Details magazine: "We just want to keep things to ourselves." We're really hoping all this privacy can keep these Hollywood newlyweds out of divorce. After all, they do have 1-year-old son Aleph to think about.



Elton John took his war with Madonna to a new level this weekend, and he said what clearly needed to be said.

E! reports that during an interview with Sunday Night, an Australian TV show, John erupted when Madonna was mentioned: "She's such a nightmare. Her career's over."

He went on to add that her current world MDNA Tour has been a disaster.

And he doesn't even stop there. The Rocket Man then said: "She looks like a f--king fairground stripper."

Well, if we're being honest with ourselves, he has a point.

The fracas started in 2004 when John accused Madge of lip-syncing while he was accepting an award at the Q Awards.

More recently, Madonna's apparent disrespect of Lady Gaga, who is the godmother of his 19-month-old son with husband David Furnish, hasn't been helping John's opinion of her.

"(Madonna's) been so horrible to Gaga," Sir Elton said.

Spinning in cash

Paul DelVecchio (a.k.a DJ Pauly D), who's better known for his hair and hook-ups rather than any actual talent, has made $11 million in the past 12 months just for spinning tunes, the New York Daily News reports. This doesn't count money made on his clothing line, reality show, brand of tanning lotion, cocktail line and headphones. Bill Gates may be getting worried. Despite that small fortune, he's only the seventh-highest-paid DJ, according to a list compiled by Forbes magazine. (Tiësto topped it at $22 million). We wonder what Pauly D will do with all that money. In the meantime, we can only guess: gym, tan, laundry.
