1. Miranda Kerr reportedly dropped from Victoria’s Secret
There’s some confusing rumours circulating about Aussie model Miranda Kerr this morning, so we’re going to take it from the top.
US Weekly is reporting that Kerr, 30, is being let go as a Victoria’s Secret Angel after her $1 million, three-year contract “was not renewed.” An insider says the reasons are because she “has a difficult reputation” and “she’s not a big seller”.
Meanwhile Victoria’s Secret President Ed Razek released a statement that neither confirmed or denied the rumour.
“Miranda Kerr is one of the best models in the history of the business – and easily one of the most popular,” he said in a statement.
“She is also a consummate professional. Any rumours to the contrary are simply untrue.
“While her international commitments have kept her away from us more than we’d like over the past few years, she will always be an Angel to me.
“In fact, I’ve already invited her to walk the runway in this year’s fashion show and, happily, she’s agreed.”
If the rumour is true it would be the second contract Kerr has lost this year, with David Jones not resigning the model after she reportedly demanded a “massive” contract and had too many international commitments.

2. Michelle Williams’ new haircut has been described as making her look like an “emo guinea pig”. Check it out here and tell us what you think.
3. Didn’t you know? Gwyneth Paltrow has the butt of a 22-year-old stripper.
Of course you do Gwyneth, of COURSE YOU do but we’d really like to stop hearing about it.
Recalling a recent cossie shopping trip with a friend Paltrow told US Weekly: “I said, ‘You know, this isn’t so bad for 40, right?’” “And [my friend] goes, ‘It’s not so bad for a 22-year-old stripper!’”
The 40-year-old actress credits trainer Tracy Anderson (pic left) with transforming her body and says it’s improved her sex life.
She told Us Weekly: “I had exercised before I had met Tracy. I had done Ashtanga yoga and pilates and I [ran] and I thought I was fit, you know?
Of her training regime: “It did such wonders for my life, my confidence, my sex life, everything.”
This week she’s also taken a passive aggressive swipe at brunettes (prepare to get your outrage pants on my brown-haired friends): “I don’t understand the whole idea of blondes having more fun. I’d say brunettes have more fun as they can go under the radar a little bit more. People are just waiting for blondes to get drunk and fall down, because we’re so visible.”
Gwynnie, we know you’ve got a book to promote but maybe it’s time lay off the self-indulgent interviews for a while? Then again, if we had the butt of a 22-year-old we’d probably want everyone to know about it too.

7. Russell Crowe once told an unknown teenager to fuck off, guess who she turned out to be…
Chalk this one up as yet another reason to love Rebel Wilson.
The 27-year-old Aussie comedian was the recipient of the Nicole Kidman Scholarship at the Australian Theatre for Young People in 2003, which allowed her to her fly to New York to study comedy.
Wilson appeared on The Tonight Show and told host Jay Leno that that when she saw Nicole Kidman in Sydney having dinner with Russell Crowe, she approached the table to give her thanks.
“I thought now is my chance to say thank you and I went up to them but before I could say anything Russell Crowe looked at me and says ‘Fuck off’,” she said. “So I just like put my head down and walked away. But thanks Nicole.”
