Kareena Kapoor too has been confirmed to perform. The show will be hosted by Riteish Deshmukh, Lara Dutta and Boman Irani. But one of the highlights each year, the movie premiere, has been done away with. Explains IIFA director Sabbas Joseph, "It can't be helped. The movie premiere had to be cancelled this year because of the ongoing strike of new releases in Bollywood. Two big films were ready to be premiered at IIFA this year. I shall refrain from mentioning their names. But the imbroglio did away with the premiere. "As a substitute IIFA this year has the world-famous Cirque de Soleil performing for the audience. "We believe audiences won't get a chance to miss the world premiere once they see the Cirque de Soleil performing. "Why Macau? Says Sabbas, "Because we feel it's the Las Vegas of the East. In this the tenth year of IIFA's existence, we wanted either the US or China to be our venue. We chose China because we feel it could be a gateway for Bollywood to the China. We also hope to end the deadlock between India and China over the exchange of cinema. We haven't come away from one venue without opening up doors for Bollywood. We're confident this would be the case in China. "

Big B is in big dilemma. In his latest blog the superstar reveals that he has rejected an offer from Queensland University of Technology of decorating him with an Honarary Doctorate for his contribution to the world of entertainment, due to the latest spate of attacks on Indian students down under.This is what he has to say over the entire episode:I am faced with a dilemma of some intense proportions. And as is the norm, when I am troubled I seek advice and consultation from the extended family.I have been witnessing with great dismay and shock, the recent violent attacks on Indian students in Australia, on the electronic media the entire day. One of them, as is apparent from the coverage, lies in a hospital critically conditioned. There have been diplomatic overtures from both Governments - India complaining and expressing their concern and anger through the level of the Prime Minister and Australia expressing regret, but admitting purported racist overtones in the incident. This is, as many know, the fourth such incident in a month, not to mention several other cases that have been in prominence through the years.Now.. here is the problem and the reason I seek help.Last week, I have accepted from the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia an offer of decorating me with an Honarary Doctorate for my contribution to the world of entertainment. This issue was under discussion and consideration by the University Board for some months and has now fructified. It is to be conferred on me in the month of July as a part of the celebrations being held there, to commemorate a retrospective of my films to be inaugurated in the city.I mean no disrespect to the Institution that honors me, but under the present circumstances, where citizens of my own country are subjected to such acts of inhuman horror, my conscience does not permit me to accept this decoration from a country that perpetrates such indignity to my fellow countrymen. And here is where I need your inputs. Am I right in thinking so. And if yes then is my act of refusing the honor justified or not. I shall put this up as my POLL question and shall feel obliged if EF can indicate to me their opinion, for me to be ale to take the correct action.

We only had sex once, then fell asleep. Next morning, we had breakfast together like any other couple, and I took the morning-after pill. He told me he'd like to see me again, and I agreed," she revealed.

Rihanna in nude photo scandal

Pop star Rihanna, who is currently embroiled in an assault case against former boyfriend Chris Brown, is ensnared in a nude-photo scandal, according to online reports.Last Friday, pictures of a woman closely resembling Rihanna (real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty) were leaked on the Internet. A few showed nudity.However, the nude photos do not show a clear shot of her face, said website Gossip Girls. Lawyers at Rihanna's record label, Def Jam, have asked the websites to remove the pictures, calling the photos a violation of "the artist's rights".Rihanna, 21, is said to be so embarrassed she's fled Hollywood and taken refuge in Hawaii. It is yet more misery for the star who in February was allegedly attacked by then boyfriend, singer Chris Brown. Leaked photos revealed shocking injuries to her face. He was charged with assault.One of Rihanna's pals said: "She is freaking out. She was on the road to recovery after a terrible few months. She has no idea how these pictures have been leaked but she's determined to find out." One photo shows a man, believed to be Brown, sitting in the hotel room with a pair of pink pants on his head. Rihanna is recording a new album in Hawaii. Her pal added: "She's rushed off to Hawaii to escape the scrutiny.The Good Girl Gone Bad singer posed for raunchy shots in the January issue of Germany's FHM mag, but preserved her modesty with a strategically placed umbrella.She has insisted in the past that she would never want to be pictured naked, saying: "My mother would kill me if I posed nude."

Intelligent women have better sex!

Beauty may bag you a man - but brains will bring you more fun in the bedroom.Women blessed with 'emotional intelligence' - the ability to express their feelings and read those of others - have better sex lives, research shows.Those most in touch with their feelings have twice as many orgasms as inhibited sorts, the study found. The finding could lead to new ways of counselling the 40 per cent of women who find it difficult or impossible to enjoy sex fully.Researcher Tim Spector of King's College London said there were definite advantages to being a touchy-feely type. He said: 'These findings show that emotional intelligence is an advantage in many aspects of your life, including the bedroom.'Professor Spector questioned more than 2,000 female twins, aged between 18 and 83, about their sex lives. They were asked to rate their ability to reach orgasm on a seven-point scale, ranging from 'never' to 'always'. They also filled in a questionnaire designed to gauge their emotional intelligence and covering traits such as self expression, empathy and contentment. Those most in touch with their feelings had the most orgasms, the Journal of Sexual Medicine reports. Lead author, psychologist Andrea Burri, also of King's College, said: 'Emotional intelligence seems to have a direct impact on women's sexual functioning by influencing her ability to communicate her sexual expectations and desires to her partner.' Emotional intelligence may also make it easier for women to fantasise while in the bedroom. Relationship expert Dr Pam Spurr said it was difficult, but not impossible, for women to lose their inhibitions. Dr Spurr, whose books include Sizzling Sex and Fabulous Foreplay, said: 'It is not easy, the way we express ourselves is very habitual and affects our relationships and sexual relationships. 'It is not about waving a magic wand, it takes someone who is committed to learning new ways of communicating, to being open to intimacy and to putting their emotional self out there.' Other research has concluded that foreplay adds little to a woman's overall enjoyment of sex. The main event itself is far more important, the study found. The recent finding contradicts traditional bedroom etiquette, which dictates that men must take it slow. More than 2,300 women were quizzed about their sex lives for the study, with questions covering the division of time between foreplay and intercourse, and how often the women had an orgasm. The Scottish and Czech researchers said: 'In contrast to the assumptions of many sex therapists and educators, more attention should be given to improve quality and duration of intercourse rather than foreplay.'

Mandy Moore not Ready to bare it all

SingerMandy Moore, who recently tied the knot with Ryan Adams, has declared that she is not Ready to bare all in flicks, as she thinks only her husband is entitled to seeing her in the buff.Moore says that she does not approve of the idea of random people seeing her without clothes, and thus she will bare all only if it is utterly important."Right now, that's something that is off limits. I'd never say never because some things are absolutely necessary. I feel oftentimes I've been attached to a film and then, at the last second, someone has said, like, 'OK, well this is an absolute necessity - this scene requires to bare it all and there's no two ways around it," Contactmusic quoted her as saying."I'm like, 'I really believe there's so much of that which could be implied and it's just gratuitous.' I'm not comfortable within my own skin. That side of myself is reserved for my personal life and I wouldn't feel comfortable walking down the street Knowing, like... it's perfectly logical to believe that any random person walking down the street has the ability to see me with my clothes off," she added.However, Moore, who recently posed for a provocative Details magazine lingerie spread, is keen to get rid of her goody-goody image on the big screen.

I don't know, help get cool people in the cast."The star is denying any wrongdoing and claims she promoted the film at every opportunity.She said: "Any chance I got, any red carpet, any press, if I was doing something for another product...I would just bring it up, 'Oh, my new sorority film, it's going to be sexy, it's going to be really hot girls' - like I really, you know, did my best’."Paris is due in court in June.

Feroz Khan was the only man who called me baby

Actress-politician Hema Malini, who is busy campaigning for the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, catches her breath to remember Feroz Khan and says he was the only colleague to use an endearment for her and give her a sensuous avatar in his hit film "Dharmatma"."He was the first and last man who called me 'baby'. No one has ever dared. I wish they would. What a suave man he was," Hema told IANS."When I agreed to do 'Dharmatma' he made it very clear I was there in the first-half only. He said, 'You can't say no, baby!' That was a new experience for me. My mother was more shocked than I was. With everyone addressing me as 'ji' it feels nice if someone comes up with a term of endearment."Earlier this week I was in Darjeeling campaigning when someone from the crowd shouted out 'Hemu' and disappeared into the mountains. I felt good because that's what my near and dear ones call me," she added.Flamboyant actor-filmmaker Feroz Khan died at his farmhouse in Bangalore Sunday after a year-long battle with cancer. He was 69. Feroz Khan calling Hema 'baby' was not the only change that he brought to her life."He decided to take on the challenge of making me look more glamorous and sensuous than ever before. That was a tough job because I was constantly fighting to cover myself up more than those costumes by Parmeshwar Godrej allowed.I don't think I've ever used so many safety pins in my entire lifetime. He wanted me to be as uninhibited as today's heroines. That wasn't possible for me."Hema shot in Afghanistan for "Dharmatma" and says it was a memorable experience."I don't think any film unit had gone there before. It was a memorable experience. And we really had to rough it out. It was freezing cold in Kabul. We had to stay in tents. In the evenings, we'd all sit together and prepare for next day's scenes. "Otherwise after shooting I always kept to myself. But he persuaded not just me but also my mother to join the unit in the evening. 'Come on, mom. Join us.' My mother was taken aback. We're basically very shy people.But he'd make her part of the discussions. That's the way to make films. One gets so charged and enthusiastic. I wish Feroz Khan and I had done more films together," Hema said.

I couldn't let Shyam sir down

Minissha Lamba has just returned from a gruelling one month outdoor schedule of WELL DONE ABBA. Though she is chilling out at the moment and catching up with friends and family, she looks back quite fondly on working with director Shyam Benegal.“Much before beginning to shoot for the film, I was sure about one thing that I couldn’t let Shyam sir down”, says Minissha with respect in her voice for the veteran film maker, “Here I was working with a man who has been directing for 35 years now so I had to be nothing but perfect with my performance.”With such a senior person calling the shots, wasn’t it intimidating to take directions from him?“Honestly, it wasn’t intimidating because Shyam sir is a pro in working with actors. He knows how to take care of them and extract the best out of them. This is why I didn’t even know how an entire month passed by and the shooting got over. More than him calling the shots, what was really unnerving was the kind of immense pressure that I had put myself into. For me, every day was a challenge as I had to give my very best”, she shoots off.“With such an ensemble cast in the film, you have to be on your toes all the time.

Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Aniston over lesbian fears

Making a rather surprising revelation, an investigative celebrity blogger and biographer has claimed that Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Aniston because he thought she was a lesbian.Writing on his blog, Ian Halperin, revealed that a source named Toni (who is reportedly a friend of Angelina Jolie) said Pitt started dating Jolie because his marriage to former Friends star wasn’t fulfilling enough.Halperin also claimed that the Troy star finally pulled the string on his relationship with Aniston because she never wanted to have sex with him.“Brad likes to have sex a lot and Jennifer never wanted to sleep with him,” The Daily Telegraph quoted Toni as saying.He added, “He started to speculate that she was gay, though he never caught her with another woman or anything like that. He was very frustrated for a long time. Then he met Angelina, who is insatiable in bed, and the rest is history.”He further revealed that stories about Jennifer not wanting kids were just a ploy by Jolie to justify the affair.The insider said, “Brad always said that was a lie. Jen actually was ready to settle down and have kids the day Friends wrapped. That’s not why he left her. He really did love Jen but she just wasn’t fulfilling his needs.“I don’t really know Jen and I found it hard to believe she swings both ways. When Brad confided his suspicions, I told him, ‘no way!’“But when she started dating John Mayer, I thought hey maybe there is something to Brad’s theory. Everybody knows that Mayer is gay. Not a big secret. I can see the appeal of him hooking up with Jennifer but what does she have to gain by dating him if she’s straight?”

"I would also be just as happy with a new woman. I'm not complicated," she added.
