Gwen and Gavin looked gorgeous in the crowd of the US Open last night. I think it’s so cute that they went to enjoy the game together. Gwen was all smiles. Looks like they had an amazing evening. What do you think about Gwen’s neon nail polish? I notice that Caroline Wozniacki was also wearing neon yellow. I guess neon is in. I don’t think I will run out and paint my nails neon, my hands are way too ugly to draw attention to.

British rock star Gavin Rossdale may have sold millions of records with his band, but he’s hailed his baby with Gwen Stefani as his “greatest triumph” yet.
The former Bush frontman gushed about the one-year-old boy during an interview with US TV, where he also talked music, paparazzi, cooking and tennis.
Cradling the baby in his lap, he said: “This is Kingston. Finally, I got something right.”
The couple’s pride and joy has even inherited their love of music, says Rossdale, 42.
“He was on tour with Gwen. He’d come and watch the show with me with the headphones on. He’s big on drums.”
Speaking of music, Rossdale said of his future plans: “I just finished a record that comes out next year. It’s a solo record.”
With both Rossdale and Stefani, 38, in the media spotlight, it’s tricky shielding Kingston from the paparazzi lens. But they’ve managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, splitting their time between Los Angeles and Primrose Hill, London.
“We made a conscious decision [to have a child]. We would have a baby and the baby joins our life,” said Rossdale.
“We don’t stop for his. If we were going to be followed by paparazzi, it doesn’t mean we would leave him home…we don’t take life too seriously.”
In response to a question about giving Kingston a sibling, he added: “We’ll see what happens.”
During the interview, Rossdale also reveals that he “grew up wanting to be a tennis player. He’s known to be a regular in the California celebrity tennis circuit.
And these days, the busy family man says one of his main pastimes is cooking.”It’s a hobby you can share,” he smiled, mentioning “lots of Italian food and English food like roasts” as his specialties.

Gwen Stefani’s 16-month-old son has learnt how to headbang.
The ‘Hollaback Girl’ singer says Kingston, her child with husband Bush guitarist Gavin Rossdale, has inherited his parents’ musical genes.
Gwen told InStyle magazine: “He sings a lot to himself. He is just getting into music. He does the whole head-bouncing thing.”
The 38-year-old star is so besotted with Kingston she would rather deprive herself of sleep than spend time away from him.
She said: “I love him so much. He is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
“This morning he woke up at 6am and I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to die right now.’ I definitely don’t get enough sleep, but I’d rather spend time with him.
“I’ve got this extra-fun, amazing little guy who just wants to hang with me.”
The No Doubt star even took Kingston on her ‘The Sweet Escape Tour’ and has adapted her bus to fit his every need.
She said: “There is a crib for Kingston with his little sleepy-time things on my tour bus. It is pretty adorable. And there’s also a big playpen with a gate, so he can sleep up there if he wants. It’s perfect for me too – sometimes he plays in there with me if I want to lie down.”

Gwens chest may look small in these photos but I remember a time when Gwen was truly flat as a wall. She was one of the few people who could pull off an absolutely flat chest because she was edgy and different, gorgeous regardless… So what happened? Did Gwen miraculously grow a pair of boobs after she had Kingston? I am sure she would like for us to believe that but I don’t know, I am not quite buying it.
One thing I can tell you is this, her breasts are definitely about two cup sizes larger than they used to be. Maybe having a baby could bring you from a wall to something but not sure if you would increase from a Nothing to a big B. Most people I know who have babies complain that their little boobs got littler and saggier afterwards. Then there is always that one person who says theirs stayed perfect or got better post baby but majority seem to have the opposite reaction.
So is Gwen one of the lucky ones? She had a baby and ends up with decent size breasts that look firm or are they augmented? To be honest, I think Gwen’s boobs “grew” before she had Kingston, which would make the baby excuse invalid.
I never paid much attention to Gwen’s chest (Or lack of chest) but I think everyone is aware that it was flatter than some young boys when she entered this industry. If Gwen did get implants she was smart about it. She kept them small enough that no one would notice. If you’re flat as a wall or a B-cup, no one is going to say, wow she looks huge. She still looks fairly small and proportionate, bigger but small. I actually think she looks great but like I said, she looked great with no breast.
Anyway, steering away from the fact that Gwen suddenly has boobs I never noticed, what on earth is she wearing? As I have said in the past, I am not a big fan of Gwen’s style. She always wears gaudy accessories and things that just don’t work together. I find this outfit to be terrible. Those shorts are way too high in the waste and badly fit for her frame. It makes her look like she has a really short, wide body.

A WILDFIRE raged out of control in Los Angeles last night threatening the homes of the rich and famous.
The blaze could wipe out hundreds of multi-million dollar mansions and historic landmarks in star-studded Hollywood Hills. The flames ripped through 600 acres of dry brush in Griffith Park, a natural beauty spot in the centre of the city.
Pop star Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale, from rock band Bush, are known to own a sprawling estate close to the towering flames. Their lavish mansion was one of 300 in the area where firefighters went door-to-door forcing families to leave their homes.
Actors Kirsty Alley, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also own houses in the area.
Flames raced over hills and canyons threatening the LA zoo and the Gene Autry Museum.
It is also home to the Griffith Observatory – made famous in the James Dean film Rebel Without A Cause.
By late afternoon, firefighters believed they had the blaze under control after helicopters dropped water on to the flames. But a shift in the wind whipped up flames at dusk, sending embers into the air and igniting other areas. Helicopter pilots continued the battle around the clock using night-vision equipment.Â Fire department chief Douglas Barry said they hoped to get better control of the fire at daybreak. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said police had to be called in to remove several stubborn residents that had refused to leave.
Thousands were also left without power as the fire burned through power-lines causing blackouts across the area.
The cause of the fire remains a mystery but police have detained a man in his 20s who suffered burns .
Investigators believe the fire was started with matches – but can’t say if it was deliberate or not.
All eyes were on the reigning blonde pop princess when she performed for a sold-out crowd â€“ which consisted of mothers and young daughters, couples and fashionable vixens in their teens, 20s and 30s â€“ at Cricket Pavilion Saturday (photos).
And Stefani, who had a handful of costume changes throughout her 90-minute set, gave them an eyeful with flashy ensembles, showcasing her buff arms and amazing abs.
“Itâ€™s hard to believe she had a son,” Brie Peterson, 22, of Mesa, says referring to Stefaniâ€™s little boy with Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, Kingston. “She looks fabulous … I think Gwen is such a trendsetter. People are always curious what sheâ€™s going to do next.”
Peterson, who was wearing a black L.A.M.B. tank top and toting a first edition black-and-white L.A.M.B. bag, was one of many people in the audience wearing items from Stefaniâ€™s fashion line or carrying one of the singerâ€™s coveted purses. Some even held up the singerâ€™s dolls.
“Gwen has a great fashion sense,” Peterson says. “I love her clothes. They have so much personality. I think a lot of girls look up to her and want to be like her.”
The trendsetter Stefani launched her set at 10:30 p.m. with the title track from her sophomore solo album “The Sweet Escape,” released last December.
Dressed in a glittery black-and-white striped number, the singer exited a jail cell and was flocked by four Japanese dancers known as the Harajuku Girls. A large illuminated G hung above the stage as a giant video screen splashed colorful imagery behind her. Stefani was also backed by some male hip-hop dancers and a full band — included keyboards, bass and drums.
“Itâ€™s show No. 5,” Stefani told the crowd. “Look how beautiful you look. Wow, 20,000 people.”
Stefani performed the majority of tracks from her critically-panned latest disc â€“ such as “Yummy,” “Now That You Got It” and the “Sound of Music”-esque “Wind It Up.â€ She also covered favorites like “Rich Girl,” “Hollaback Girl” and “Luxurious” from 2004′s “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.”
Stefani was at her best when she performed slower, stripped-down gems such as “Cool” — which she sang in the middle of the pavilion — and “Early Winter.”
Her set also included the random circus-themed “Donâ€™t Get It Twisted” and the laughable “Orange County Girl.” A slideshow of photos from Stefaniâ€™s childhood and rise to fame with the Orange County, Calif., band No Doubt highlighted the latter, but Stefani has clearly proven sheâ€™s more than simply an O.C. girl in the last few years. The audience erupted into cheers when photos of Kingston or Rossdale appeared.
“Heâ€™s on the bus sleeping right now,” Stefani told the crowd earlier in the evening, referring to her son.
Stefani closed her set with a brief encore, which included “The Real Thing” and “What You Waiting For.”
“Gwen just rocked tonight,” Brandon Thorsati, 27, of Tempe, said. “I wish she would have played longer. I love watching her do her thing. Sheâ€™s really talented. I canâ€™t wait until she comes back to Phoenix.”
Pint-sized rapper Lady Sovereign and reggae/rapper Akon opened the show.
“The Sweet Escape”
“4 in the Morning”
“Wind It Up”
“Now That You Got It”
“Donâ€™t Get It Twisted”
“Orange County Girl”
“The Real Thing”
“What You Waiting For?”

You can excuse a girl a bit of vanity â€“ even Gwen Stefani. “If you had paparazzi outside your house, you’d make sure you looked good, too,” the singer and fashion designer tells Harper’s Bazaar in its May issue.
Stefani, 37, says she was “dying to get out of the house” when she was pregnant last year, but says: “I had to sneak into the back of my brother Todd’s car â€“ eight months pregnant â€“ and lie down on the floor. Just so we could go to Target.”
Baby Kingston was born in May 2006 and Stefani immediately set about losing her pregnancy pounds. “It’s so much work afterward to get the weight off,” she says. “If you just do it, it comes off. And when you’re nursing, like I am, your metabolism is like whoosh!”
Still, Stefani admits that she struggled to keep her size 4 figure even before her pregnancy. “I hate talking about it, but it’s true,” she says. “I’ve always been on a diet, ever since I was in the sixth grade. It’s an ongoing battle and it’s a nightmare. But I like clothes too much, and I always wanted to wear the outfits I would make.” She adds with a laugh: “And I’m very vain.”
She says she contents herself with “all the healthy stuff” most of the time, “but I let myself cheat once or twice a day with a cookie or pizza.”
Stefani can expect quite a workout when she embarks on her two-month U.S. tour to promote her new album, The Sweet Escape, on April 21 in Las Vegas. After that? Well, she did tell Ellen DeGeneres in February she was “ready to go” for another child.
“Now I’m in a repeater zone,” she confirms to Bazaar. “I just want to make babies and make records.”
Luckily, she’s got help from her husband of more than four years, Gavin Rossdale. “I even wrote in a song, ‘You seem like you’d be a good dad,’ ” she says. “So, yeah he’s lived up to my expectations, more than. He has always been very loving and romantic.”

Gwen Stefani wants her son Kingston to marry Angelina Jolie’s daughter Shiloh when they grow up.
The ‘Wind It Up’ singer is good friends with the Tomb Raider actress and their children have been on several playdates together – sparking hopes of a future romance.
Gwen told Elle magazine: “Kingston and Shiloh play together. They were like two little blobs when they met. Maybe they’ll get married when they grow up? That’d be cute!”
The 37-year-old pop star gave birth to Kingston, her son with British rocker husband Gavin Rossdale, in May last year.
The ‘Hollaback Girl’ singer also revealed she competed against Angelina when they auditioned for the same role in Mr and Mrs Smith, the movie where Angelina fell for Shiloh’s dad Brad Pitt.
Gwen said: “I don’t know if I almost got it, but I certainly put a lot of effort in. They were clearly looking for a certain girl, and you couldn’t get more opposite than me and Angelina.”
