Chicklets for Dixie Chick

Martie Maguire, 34, of the Dixie Chicks is expecting twins. The fiddle-playing gal posted the news via the Dixie Chicks web site. “Yes, we are delighted to inform y’all that I am expecting not one, but two little chicklets,” wrote Maguire, who is in her first trimester. Apparently Maguire and her husband Gareth have been trying to conceive for 2 1/2 years. “I can’t tell you what an emotional ride this road to getting pregnant has been,” Maguire said. “I know that compared to some couples’ struggles, ours has been relatively easy, but I will say that we have an all new appreciation for the miracle of life.” Yee haa!

P. Diddy Did Run the NYC Marathon

Hip-hop entrepreneur Sean “P. Diddy” Combs finished the New York City Marathon after just two months of training. P. Diddy finished the grueling run in a time of 4:14:54, his marathon effort raising an estimated $3 million for disadvantaged children of New York. This staggering figure is double what the high-profile entertainer had hoped to raise. “Never in my life have I ever experienced anything as crazy as this,” Combs said Sunday at a news conference. “It was a beautiful experience.”

Some of the more famous philanthropists who sponsored his efforts were Mayor Michael Bloomberg and our favourite glamour couple J.Lo and Ben Affleck, who, rumour has it, tipped in a combined sum of $150,000! “I definitely wanted to stop,” said Coombs of the event. “This is definitely a life-changing experience for me because I did not stop.? P.Diddy had this to say to his detractors: “We set a bar and we crushed that bar. This is just a start. This wasn’t a publicity stunt.” And in an even bigger win, USA Track & Field named the 34-year-old popstar as its ?Athlete of the Week? last week after his efforts in the marathon! Watch out or P.Diddy might consider running full-time!

Britney may move to UK

In a move to try and sell more records in the UK, Britney Spears has declared she is thinking of heading across the Atlantic and making her home in Old Blighty. “I went to London last week and it’s so cool there,” the pop princess told a British TV show “I’m thinking of moving there. It’s really beautiful. I love it there.” The interview was recorded while Spears, 21, is in Britain to promote her latest single, Me Against the Music,” which features vocals from pash-pal Madonna. Surely the Poms won?t fall for that old trick! Again.
