Madonna's last tour was more painful than her fall at the Brit Awards. The 56-year-old singer fell down a set of stairs during a performance of her single 'Living For Love' at the event at London's O2 Arena last month, but she insists the hurt she suffered was nothing in comparison to the rough and tumble of her 'Mdna' tour in 2012. She told 'The Jonathan Ross Show': ''It was pretty dangerous. I got punched a lot. What's a little fall off the stage compared to my last tour? Seriously. I got punched all the time.'' Meanwhile, Madonna recently claimed she was not seriously hurt at the BRITs because she knows how to fall safely - and because a ''guardian angel'' was looking out for her''. She explained: ''I have core strength, and I know that saved me. That and my guardian angels. I believe that there's »

The singer expressed her interest in recording the theme for upcoming film Spectre last month, but has now discovered that someone else has been given the job.
Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, she said: "I also know that I'm not going to sing the Bond [theme song] because I've found out that I'm not going to be singing it…

Now, the legendary fashion designer is firing back at the pop icon, saying that Madonna is the only person to blame for her embarrassing spill.

"Madonna, as we all know, is very difficult," Armani told AP, smiling. According to the 80-year-old Italian fashion designer, Madonna's cape was originally supposed to be secured with a simple clasp, but the singer wanted it tied instead, which caused the fall. "That's all there was to it."

Ever since Sigourney Weaver announced that she would be back to star in Avatar 2 back in 2010, we have been scratching our heads about the situation. After all, her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, very clearly died towards the end of the film - so how could Weaver be coming back? Finally the actress has clarified her position in the franchise a bit, and has confirmed that she will be in Avatar 2 playing a different character. Weaver is currently on the press tour promoting the upcoming release of Chappie, and it was while she was a guest on the UK's The Jonathan Ross Show that the actress revealed how she will be fitting into Avatar 2. The late night program's titular host asked her if we could expect the upcoming sequel to be set directly after the events of the last movie, and she corrected him by saying, "No. I »
Last we heard of Avatar 2 and its pair of subsequent sequels, director James Cameron had opted to delay the upcoming installments due to a complex script. This is largely due to the fact that all three movies are set to be filmed simultaneously, leaving cast and crew with a lot of plates to keep spinning. However, despite the events of the first Avatar in 2009, one seemingly core member of the original film set to rejoin production is Sigourney Weaver, who may not play Grace Augustine upon her return.
That’s according to the actress herself, who recently appeared on The Jonathan Ross show to talk all-things-Chappie (with a spice of Blomkamp’s mysterious Alien sequel thrown in for good measure, no doubt). And during the course of the interview, Weaver was asked how she will be able to return to the mystical world of Pandora. Put simply, the »

"...have you ever heard of nonlinear storytelling? A lot happens on that planet before she shows up, and before Jake shows up to join her," James Cameron said in 2011 about the return of Sigourney Weaver in the "Avatar" sequels even though her character, Grace, died. "She’s there for fifteen years ahead of time. I don’t know, but I wouldn’t jump to conclusions. And I’ve already said way too much about 'Avatar 2 and 3' here and there, but people piece it together like those voice cameos and tell the whole story!" And yet, Cameron couldn't helping saying a few more words: "Okay, here’s the deal. When you have a science-fiction series, a science-fiction franchise, you’re never dead, unless your DNA is expunged from the universe. And then there’s always time travel!" So is Grace dead, alive, or transformed? Well, we'll find out eventually, but »
