Massive crowd turns out for Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

A crowd of thousands saw Amy Winehouse’s strongest show of the summer at Bestival.

Winehouse was 45 minutes late, but turned up, unlike at Rock en Seine in Paris earlier this week.

Although the singer had little of her usual interaction with the crowd, she was in full voice and finished with hits Back to Black, Love is a Losing Game and You Know I’m No Good.

Earlier, the Specials and Grace Jones appeared as surprised guests.

The festival has suffered from the heavy rain that has been battering Britain over the weekend.

On his blog, organizer Rob da Bank said there are rumors on the internet that the main stage has sunk.

He reassured fans: “The truth is much more simple – we had some heavy rain, there’s some mud onsite, quite a bit in places but we’re open, everyone’s having a ball and the spirit of Bestival is alive and well.”

How much is Hulk Hogan worth?

Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan thinks he knows best when it comes to his net worth – in financial affidavits filed in divorce court near Tampa, Fla., the wrestler, real name Terry Bollea, claims he’s worth $32 million. However his estranged wife Linda Hogan puts his value at $26.7 million.

Money seems to be flying everywhere during the couple’s highly publicized divorce fight – Hulk says he’s dishing out $38,000 per month to pay his legal fees, while Linda is putting down $7,000 on clothing, $7,500 on maid service and about $1,700 on jewelry each month, according to the AP.

While the Hogans duke it out in the courtroom, their son Nick Hogan is in jail as part of his eight-month sentence after being sentenced for causing the crash that permanently disabled his friend John Graziano.

Bon Jovi

Rocker Bon Jovi held a fund-raiser at his New Jersey home that brought in a whopping $3 million for presidential candidate Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee, the New York Post reports.

About 100 people attended the event Friday at Bon Jovi’s mansion in Middletown, NJ, paying about $31,000 each to mingle with the singer and other Democratic supporters, the Post said.

Obama gave a brief speech at the gathering, saying he will stand up to any dirty campaign tactics by the Republicans. “We’re not going to be bullied, we’re not going to be smeared,” he said.

K.T. Tunstall got married

K.T. Tunstall

The waiting is finally over for singer KT Tunstall, who married Luke Bullen Saturday on a remote Scottish island, People has confirmed.

The maverick 33-year-old Scottish performer exchanged vows with her drummer in a marquee overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the Isle of Skye.

“They wanted to keep it as a private event for family and friends,” says a pal of the singer. “It was just as they wanted it.”

The “Suddenly I See” singer reportedly wore a fitted silk strapless gown covered in crystals and simple jewelery for the ceremony, attended by about 150 guests.

Family in traditional wedding attire mingled with younger guests sporting bowler hats, puffball skirts, retro suits, sneakers and guitars according to a report in Britain’s Mail On Sunday newspaper.

Newlyweds and guests all enjoyed a traditional “wedding breakfast” of local beef and seafood before the couple was toasted with vintage champagne.

Later, everyone danced to live music featuring a medley of 1980s hits, as well as traditional Scottish folk music.

The new Mrs. Bullen booked two luxury hotels for five days of celebrations, with the first guests – some traveling from as far as Los Angeles – arriving on Thursday.

The eco-aware singer-songwriter selected the romantic Isle of Skye for her after holidaying there and falling for its stunning natural scenery. The Mail on Sunday adds that the couple plans to honeymoon on a backpacking trek they will take in South America, India and New Zealand.

Bullen proposed to Tunstall in 2007 on a surprise visit to her family home on Christmas Day.

Pal: Pete & Ashlee are expecting twins

Posted by:

Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz could find themselves facing another round of twin rumors.

Pete’s buddy, hip-hop artist Tyga, says that the parents-to-be are expecting not one, but two bundles of joy.

“They’re having twins,” Tyga said in an exclusive interview yesterday at the House of Hype’s pre-VMA barbeque. “They’re really happy.”

Either Tyga spilled the beans or he’s repeating an internet rumor that Pete started earlier this summer…

In June, Pete sent the internet into a tizzy when he referred to his and Ashlee’s unborn baby as “them” during an Arizona radio interview. He quickly denied they were having twins, explaining to blogger Perez Hilton that he was just trying to be vague about the pregnancy.

A rep for the couple insists only one baby is on the way. “It is not true,” the rep said of Tyga’s twins report.

Pete, 29, and Ashlee, 23, were married on May 17 at her parents’ L.A.-area home. Eleven days later the young rockers announced that Ashlee was preggers.

Pete’s band Fall Out Boy is up for a VMA tonight for Best Rock Video for the video for their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.”
