Super Bowl Record

It definitely has been a good week for Jeff Zucker, President and CEO of NBC Universal.

Zucker, pictured above with Jamie Foxx, revealed that the network sold all of its 69 advertising spots for last Sunday's Super Bowl game, making a record $206 million (Dh756m). This year, ads sold for between $2.4m and $3m per 30-second slot; an impressive feat considering the credit crisis.


You Go, Lady O!

According to US reports, talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has donated more than $1.5 million (Dh5.5m) to several organisations in New Jersey, including a shelter for women.


Amy Cleans Up Her Act

Amy Winehouse has put her parents in control of her $21 million (Dh77m) fortune so she cannot spend anything without their consent.

Well, if it worked for Britney...


Shilpa's a Cricket Fan

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has reportedly bought a 12 per cent stake in the Indian Premier League's Rajasthan Royals team.

The team won last year's IPL tournament.


Sued Again

Yep, Michael Jackson has been hit with yet another lawsuit. Cameroonian singer Manu Dibango is suing the former King of Pop for $643,000 (Dh2.4 million) in damages over allegedly using an unlicensed sample.
