Does Christina Aguilera have breast implants?
Christina Aguilera has never commented on speculations that her buxom figure has had a helping hand from a plastic surgeon. But as the star waved to fans at the Tokyo press conference for her new film, an apparent scar under her arm may have given her secret away.
The small line could be the result of a transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation — a breast enlargement technique where implants are placed through an armpit incision. Experts say the popular method usually leaves an inch-long scar and is the preferred option for patients who want to avoid scars on the breast. Aguilera's décolletage has certainly increased over the years, and while it could be the result of carrying more weight, her latest outing suggests there may be more to it.
Meanwhile the singer, who is busy promoting her new film Burlesque, a song-and-dance extravaganza about a small-town girl trying to make it big, said that she felt doubly challenged by the acting and dancing demands of the lead role of Ali Rose, and was at first inclined to turn it down. The four-time Grammy winner said although she is accustomed to dancing when she performs on stage, she considers herself first and foremost a singer. "I was scared of being out there with real, professional dancers. It's harder than it looks," she said at the conference. Writer-Director Steven Antin said he had to convince a worried Aguilera that she had enough acting and dancing in her for the role. But, he said, she quickly rose to the occasion. "Christina has an extraordinary innate acting ability. She had many reservations. I believed she could do it. I watched her do it every day," he said.

Beyoncé pays £1.3 million to buy husband Jay-Z the fastest car in the world
Last year they were the highest-earning couple in show business, earning a combined £68 million. So birthdays in Beyoncé and Jay-Z's household are always going to be something out of the ordinary.
Beyoncé, 29, has surprised her husband with a £1.3 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his birthday. The rapper, who celebrated turning 41 on December 4, is now the proud owner of the fastest car in the world. The supercar goes from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 255mph. According to the Sun, the Single Ladies singer ordered the car a year ago to add to car-mad Jay-Z's already impressive collection. The 99 Problems hitmaker already owns a Rolls Royce Phantom, Ferrari F430 Spider, Maybach 62S and a Pagani Zonda Roadster. Jay-Z will join a select group of drivers to get behind the wheel of the fastest road-legal vehicle in the world.
Simon Cowell, Tom Cruise and Gisele Bundchen's husband, New Englands Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, all drive one of the supercars. Designer Ralph Lauren, hip-hop producer Scott Storch and artist Chris Brown are proud owners too.

Rapper Nicki Minaj wears a barbed wire 'booty protector' to stop fans grabbing her derrière
She's renowned for her curvy derrière, but that has caused problems for singer Nicki Minaj, with fans such as Regis and Rihanna grabbing hold of her behind. So the rapper was given a 'booty protector' made of barbed wire to deflect their attentions by chat show host George Lopez Tuesday night. The 25-year-old star was appearing on US show Lopez Tonight when she was given a cage made out of wire fashioned into a belt by the show's host. Lopez said Minaj has 'magical powers in her posterior' and the belt is to protect her from fans who have previously grabbed her bottom. "We have to protect your magical powers, so I've created a booty protector for you," he said. After being presented with her gift, Minaj said: "I love this, George, thank you! I love this." The star, who had multi-coloured hair for her appearance on the show, celebrated her birthday yesterday, and is celebrating with a party at Tao, Las Vegas today. For months, rumours have spread across the web that she underwent surgery or uses pads to boost her bum, but the Massive Attack singer said: "Absolutely not" in a recent interview with the New York Post.
