He's 51 and she's 28, but it seems age is nothing but a number to Eddie Murphy and his new young girlfriend.

The comedian was spotted getting a coffee with beauty Rocsi Diaz, a presenter on BET's 106 & Park. Eddie and Rocsi seemed smitten with each-other as they cuddled inside a branch of Coffee Bean café in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. They both donned head gear to purchase their hot beverages and rubbed each other's lower backs as they waited to make their order. While Murphy showed off his muscles in a sleeveless black hooded top, worn with dark trousers and trainers, Diaz teamed her ripped fitted jeans with a plaid shirt and grey beanie hat. She couldn't help but beam as her man whispered into her ear and nuzzled her face in his chest and shoulder during the hug.

'I want to fit into jeans again'

Jessica Simpson is on a mission to get back in shape after giving birth a month ago, — and this week she was officially announced as the new face of Weight Watchers. The former singer, 31, is the new North America ambassador for the points-based weight loss programme and joins the likes of Jennifer Hudson, who also fronts campaigns for the brand. Simpson will trade 'yo-yo dieting for a healthier lifestyle', according to a Weight Watchers spokesman. Indeed, she has already started on a healthy eating regime — although she is not yet able to exercise on doctor's orders until she fully recovers from her C-section. Simpson spoke to the new edition of People magazine, in which she appears in a photo shoot with daughter Maxwell Drew and fiancé Eric Johnson. She revealed she is eating simple meals, including shrimp with sautéed spring vegetables and quinoa. Simpson is also drinking home-mixed juices, her favourite being a kale, spinach, apple, ginger, romaine, celery, and carrot combo. Talking about how she is anxious to shed her baby weight, Simpson told the magazine: "After you have your baby it's like, 'Oh my God, what happened to my body... this is not me'." Simpson revealed she planned to join Weight Watchers before she learned she was pregnant. Her weight has yo-yoed over the years and she is keen to feel comfortable in her skin again. She went on: "It would be nice to feel comfortable in a bikini, but that's not my goal. I just want to fit into jeans."

Cashing in again?

There is sure to be much discussion about whether it is another cash-in or a tribute. But there are heavy parallels between the scenes witnessed in the video for Jay Z's latest single, No Church In The Wild, and the last year's Occupy protests. It is a cheeky move from the hip hop mogul, who was widely criticised last year for 'cashing in' by printing T-shirts inspired by the movement and keeping the profits for himself. But he will surely defend the video for the latest single — from his Watch The Throne collaboration album with Kanye West — perhaps suggesting it a tribute to the populist protests, which complained about social and economic inequality. The expensively produced video starts out with a young man walking alone to launch a Molotov cocktail towards riot police on the streets of Prague. An urban battle ensues, and as a crowd battles the shielded officers, police on horseback ride in and begin viciously hitting the rioters with their batons. Later, the scene switches to night, with a more multiracial crowd taking part in an even more heated scene, with a police car being overturned and set on fire, while other rioters begin to loot. Meanwhile the local constabulary fight back, and one man is held down in front of a barking police, before water cannons are brought in in another attempt to pour cold water on the conflict. It ends with green lasers being shot into the crowd, and a burning man running towards a barricade which he cannot get through. The parallels with last year's protests may in fact be an attempt to win back favour from the Occupy crowd.
