Heather Mills Does Not Want to Talk About Paul McCartney: 'It's Boring'
Heather Mills is tired of getting asked about her ex-husband.

Mills, who was married to Paul McCartney for six years, told The Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy that she doesn't want to talk about him.

"I don't want this interview to be all about Paul. That umbilical cord was broken," she said."He's married someone else and I agreed to come on the show so it wasn't just all about Paul."

Mills has a lot to talk about as she's a ski-racer with a prosthetic leg, helps animals, owns the biggest vegan company in the world and counsels thousands of people with disabilities.

In spite of the fact that she did not want the interview to be about her ex, she spoke about how she fell out of love with him.

"This is just someone I fell in love with who to me was a normal guy that happened to write a few cool songs in the

Heather Mills Takes Jab At Paul
Heather Mills took a jab at ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney during an interview on an Irish late night talk show on Friday.

She was initially hesitant to discuss her marriage – which ended in a $48.6 million divorce settlement in March 2008.

"I don't really want this interview to be all about Paul, you know, because it's just like that umbilical cord was broken," she told "The Late Late Show" host Ryan Tubridy. "He's married to someone else and, you know, I agreed to come on the show so it wasn't just 'all about Paul.'"

Sinead O'Connor attacks 'The X Factor's Simon Cowell

  • Pop2it
Sinead O'Connor has a lot of negative things to say about pop music these days. The Irish singer, who has been in the news lately due to an odd public feud with Miley Cyrus, has now attacked Simon Cowell, executive producer and judge on shows like "The X Factor" and "American Idol."

Speaking on the Irish talk show, "The Late Late Show," O'Connor told host Ryan Tubridy that the music industry was responsible for its art being in a bad state. "I feel sorry for the murder of music and rock 'n' roll, which has happened because of the industry," she said on the program. "Because of Simon Cowell, [British 'X Factor' judge] Louis Walsh -- they've murdered music. I stand to say it on behalf of every musician in the world, and they'll agree with me."

Martin Sheen Says He Will Return to Play Uncle Ben in The Amazing Spider-man 2

It's looking like we can expect a dream-sequence, flashback, or hallucination in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Last Friday, Martin Sheen was on the Rte’s Late Late Show [Via Bleeding Cool] with Ryan Tubridy, and said, "I'm going to be Uncle Ben in Spider-Man once again next year. We shoot it in February." It's welcome news considering that Sheen was one of the best parts of the original film. Of course, how we see him in the sequel will be fun, but I'll put my money on flash-back, although hallucinatory Obi-wan-like-councilor-figure would be hilarious. Over the past couple of months, the sequel has been lining up new cast members including Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne, and Shailene Woodley in a small role as Mary Jane. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due out May 2, 2014.

Martin Sheen's Uncle Ben Returns For 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Shooting Starts In February

Martin Sheen's Uncle Ben Returns For 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Shooting Starts In February
Okay, this isn't too surprising given that the memory of Uncle Ben is a key emotional hook for Peter Parker in both the comics and movies, but it looks like the dead will rise (kind of) for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Hitting Ireland's "The Late Late Show" last week to talk about his human rights project “Voices From The Front Line,” Martin Sheen revealed that he's taken the call to come off the bench for the Spidey sequel. "Well they called me back, I don't know what the part's going to be but I'm going to be Uncle Ben once again in 'Spider-Man' next year. We shoot in February," he told host Ryan Tubridy. Of course, since he died in the last movie, it's pretty safe to say he'll be relegated to flashbacks. Sheen joins the growing cast that includes newcomers Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley with the returning Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.

One Direction's Niall Horan father admits success comedown fears

One Direction's Niall Horan father admits success comedown fears
One Direction star Niall Horan's father has admitted that he is worried about when the group's success comes to an end. Bobby Horan spoke to Irish presenter Ryan Tubridy on 2Fm about the group's success in America, which earlier this week saw them make history as the first British/Irish group to debut at number one with their album Up All Night. "The only thing I'm worried about is hopefully it'll be a long period being at the top," Horan said. "The comedown from that, I'm a little bit worried about. It's always at the back of my mind. You're up there on a high, but it's a big drop after that." However, the butcher is confident that his son is dealing with the pressures of being in the public eye, adding: "But he seems to be coping with everything brilliantly - a lot better than I would."

Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro made a whirlwind visit to Dublin last week to promote his newest film "Wolfman," which opens here next month.

Miley Cyrus in Dublin blasts Madonna, Angelina Jolie for parading kids in public (IrishCentral)

The teen superstar Miley Cyrus said she disapproves of how Madonna and Angelina put their kids in front of the camera yesterday.

Cyrus “really disagrees with it,” she told Lisa Cannon on an Irish celebrity TV show, according to Ireland's Evening Herald. Cyrus herself is daughter of singer/actor Billy Ray Cyrus.

"She told me to be whoever I want to be," the singer said. Cyrus was doing

Dublin, it appears, was easily his favorite stop. Vaughn did a guest spot on Rte’s “Late Late Show” last Friday night, and besides garnering chuckles for mispronouncing Galway as “Gahl-way” – host Ryan Tubridy teased that he could be a “real Irishman” back home by saying it the correct way, and that his surname would be pronounced “Vaw-han” if he lived in Ireland –the star spoke warmly of his trips to Ireland in the past. “I have a lot of Irish ancestors and I’ve been here many times. The Ring of Kerry is beautiful, but I’m always scared of driving on the little roads y’all have here,” Vaughn said. “And (the signs) say, ‘40 people killed on this road,
