Britney Beats Off Wild Boars
BRITNEY SPEARS is helping German farmers beat off a plague of wild boars – by scaring the pigs with her music.
The animals are destroying crops in Germany but can’t be shot because they’re a protected species – so arable man HERRMANN-JOSEF BECKER tried playing tunes to drive them away. He says, “MADONNA didn’t work too well, ROBBIE WILLIAMS was a dead loss but they can’t stand Britney Spears. “When I switch on OOPS I DID IT AGAIN, or I’M NOT THAT INNOCENT, the pigs come snorting out and running for the woods.” Thirty other farmers near the city of Trier are now using the pop princess to keep the boars off their wheat, hops and maize.
Now, if she only made stye calls.
Sly’s Twenty Big Reasons to Star in Rocky Six
SYLVESTER STALLONE is set to rake in $26 million by starring in ROCKY SIX. SLY has admitted he’s planning a final film outing for former heavyweight champion ROCKY BALBOA.
The fifth instalment in the hardhitting trilogy came out in 1990, and devastated fans by leaving the hero penniless and brain-damaged at its end. But now a worker on the project reassures the public, “Sly wants to complete the Rocky series on a happy note.”
Yeah, but what if the movie sucks?
Harry Potter Set to Smash All Records
Movie industry experts predict that HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE will become the all-time number one smash when it is released on 16 November, 2001.
The film version of author J.K.ROWLING’s first novel is expected to eaily surpass the $585 million grossed by TITANIC in 1997.
The $130 million movie is directed by CHRIS COLUMBUS and stars ALAN RICKMAN, ROBBIE COLTRANE and MAGGIE SMITH. The part of HARRY POTTER is played by DANIEL RADCLIFFE, whose face is set to be on millions of COCA COLA cans. Top film journalist MARSHALL JULIUS says, “It is entirely possible that this will become the biggest grossing film ever. I reckon films and merchandising takings could exceed $1 billion dollars.”
Yes, but what if the movie sucks?
