At this time of year anyone who has been to the Italian Riviera would know that the temperatures are sweltering. But Janet Jackson does not seem to mind the heat. The 46-year-old entertainer was covered up from head to toe as she went for a cruise on a yacht with her boyfriend Wissam Al Mana in Portofino, Italy, last Tuesday. The Black Cat star wore a long-sleeve top, a hooded sweater, long trousers, and a hat all in the same hue. The star even had a pair of white socks on her feet. While most would be roasting in the ensemble, strangely Janet kept adding to the layers by putting on a jacket over the top. With Al Mana in a more appropriate combination consisting of shorts and a tank top, the contrast looked odd. Aside from their outfits, the pair were having a ball on the boat, gazing through binoculars at large birds soaring in the air and having a laugh. Perhaps Janet, who has had issues with her body image in the past, was a little bit shy about wearing her bikini. The singer has been open about her struggle with weight and body image in the past, and recently underwent some dramatic weight loss.

On yer bike Bond!

James Bond gets on his bike for a thrilling opening-chase scene in the new 007 movie Skyfall. The powerful Honda off-road motorcycle used by the besuited star is one of two battling it out in the sequence shot in Istanbul and Adana, Turkey. One is a Turkish police bike that villain Patrice, played by Ola Rapace, seizes after a policeman crashes. The other is a Turkish merchant's bike seized by superspy Bond actor Craig to pursue him. Suit aside, Craig also bears more than a passing resemblance to Steve McQueen who features in a motorbike stunt to clear a barbed wire border in the Sixties movie 'The Great Escape'. The two Honda CRF250R motorcycles that feature in the opening sequence of the 23rd James Bond film, plus the unmodified, original machine, are now on display in the BOND IN MOTION exhibition at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, ahead of the movie's release this autumn. Both of the film's bikes feature extensive modifications courtesy of Skyfall's special effects coordinator, Chris Corbould, and his award-winning team. For mere mortals, unmodified versions of the 250cc motorbikes are on sale at £5,500. The new Bond film is set to open October 26 in the United Kingdom and November 9 in the United States.

Three-time divorcee Jennifer Lopez is open to marrying again

Jennifer Lopez has revealed she is open to getting married again. The three-time divorcee, 42, who is currently dating dancer Casper Smart, 25, said she had not given up on marriage. When asked if she'd be open to walking down the aisle again, Lopez told Good Morning America: "Yes, for me the biggest dream is the fairy tale. I will never give up on that dream. It can be difficult for anybody who has to stand by my side, but at the end of the day I know that I deserve that." Lopez, who announced she was quitting her role as a judge on American Idol to concentrate on her singing career, split with husband number three Marc Anthony last year after seven years of marriage. The couple have four-year-old twins, Max and Emme, and have remained on good terms producing a Spanish language TV show. Her second marriage to dancer Cris Judd lasted just over a year while her first marriage to Ojani Noa was for only 11 months. Lopez began dating Smart soon after her split with Anthony. In his first public comments about their relationship, Smart told the US breakfast show it was not love at first sight. He said: "It was just very natural, you know, natural how it happened. There was nothing before, no flirting, nothing." Smart is the lead choreographer on Lopez's upcoming tour and was asked what it was like to work for someone while dating them. "Sometimes, I tell her something, you know, give her notes. But at the end of the day, you know, it doesn't matter what position is what, because she's the boss, you know?" Smart said.
