• Prince Charles frustrated by Middletons

    Britain's Prince Charles is reportedly frustrated by the influence Duchess Catherine's parents have in Prince William's life. The 66-year-old heir-to-the-throne is said to feel upset that his son and daughter-in-law - who are expecting their second child together - spend so much time with her parents Michael and Carole Middleton, including a recent holiday to Mustique, while he rarely gets to see his grandson Prince George, 19 months. The family have made few, if any, trips to Charles' Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire over the past year, with insiders speculating William is keen to protect his family from a similar "stiff" upbringing to the one he endured, while Carole is said to not get along particularly well with William's stepmother Duchess Camilla.

  • Spanish judge orders ex-ruling party treasurers to stand trial

  • Matera sues Leighton over quay

    Like most days during his AFL career, Phil Matera feels he has been thrust into a "David versus Goliath" duel, only this time it threatens bankruptcy.

  • As Bugatti 'supercar' legend bows out, others wait in line

    The last Bugatti Veyron ever to be made has pride of place at the show for auto enthusiasts to bid farewell after the brand announced last month that it had sold the 450th and final model of the car with its 16-cylinder monster engine that produces up to 1,200 horsepower. "With the Veyron we created a modern icon, and this show is an opportunity to put the car on a pedestal and celebrate, and say thank you to everyone involved, and close the chapter," Stefan Brungs, Bugatti's head of sales, told AFP. Sweden's Koenigsegg, for instance, boasts it makes not "supercars", or even "hypercars", but full-blown "megacars".

  • Hamburg residents take revenge on late-night revelers with urine-repellent paint

    Residents of Hamburg's St. Pauli's nightclub district are getting their own back on late-night revelers who urinate on public buildings, with a new high-tech paint that sends the spray bouncing right back at them. A local interest group has applied the special water-repellent paint, also used in shipbuilding, on two especially frequented buildings in the renowned nightclub district near the port to deter "Wildpinkler", as Germans call them. "This paint job sends a direct message back to perpetrators that their wild urinating on this wall is not welcome," Julia Staron, who organized the group, told Reuters.

Showing up at Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show, the actor looked more like Draco Malfoy transferred to a prep school from Hogwarts and dressed inappropriately for the sunny weather than his usual cool rocker self. While it was always known that he would drastically alter his appearance to get into character — he’s the most method actor out there, losing more than 14 kilograms for Dallas Buyers Club and practically going nuts himself in Girl, Interrupted and American Psycho — becoming a bottle blonde was an unexpected twist in this week’s episode of Jared Leto’s Amazing Man Hair.
