Bobbi Kristina Brown kept her mother's legend going in the best way she knows how by getting a tattoo done in her honour. The daughter of the late singer and Bobby Brown explained on her reality show, The Houstons: On Our Own, that she had to wait for her family to be out of town when she had it done. She was joined by her fiance Nick Gordon as the couple got matching tattoos of Whitney's initials inked on their wrists with a meaningful design that she thought of herself. Bobbi Kristina, 19, waited until the rest of her family were out of town at a Whitney Houston tribute gala before getting the permanent 'WH' applied. She said: "Now the family is out of town Nick and I are going to get matching tattoos in memory of our mother." The design was not just a random idea, as Bobbi Kristina had been planning it for a while but didn't want to face any opposition from family members. Speaking about the creative thought process, she said: "They will be WH and four doves. The doves are me, Nicholas, my grandfather and my mother. They were my heroes and now I can look down and my mother, she's my guardian angel."

Meet Mr Jacksun!

It seems to have come to him in a moment of illumination. For Jermaine Jackson has lodged legal papers in a bid to change the spelling of his last name to 'Jacksun.' The bizarre move has purportedly been made for 'artistic reasons,' and if it is successful then his passport, bank cards and other documents will boast the new moniker. The 57-year-old brother of the late Prince of Pop Michael filed his petition at the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, according to TMZ. A hearing has been scheduled to determine the outcome of his request. If it is approved the singer will have to publicly announce his name change several times in either a magazine or newspaper over the next few months before it becomes official. Jermaine became famous as a member of The Jackson 5 in 1968, before leaving the band to strike out on his own in 1975. He recently released his new album of classic jazz songs I Wish You Love and is currently performing in Europe as part of The Jackson's Unity Tour with his brothers Jackie, Marlon and Tito. It remains unclear whether the outfit will change their name to 'The Jacksons and Jacksun' in light of the change.

Victoria Secret's $2.5 million Fantasy Bra

Women around the world would pay millions of dollars to look like Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio. But as the 31-year-old hit the catwalk for the brand's annual show, her body was not the most expensive thing on display. Instead it was her gem-studded bra. Alessandra was given the honour of wearing the famed fashion show's Fantasy Bra -- worth a staggering $2.5 million. Re-designed every year, for the 2012 show the Fantasy Bra was covered in intricate flowers made out of a massive 5,200 precious and semi-precious stones. The gems include amethysts, sapphires, rubies and white, pink and yellow diamonds. And, like all good outfits, it of course has a matching accessory, a jewel-encrusted belt. As she stalked down the runway, then partied with her fellow angel Miranda Kerr, Alessandra looked delighted by her expensive bra. When told she would be wearing the bra designed by Long Islander's London Jewellers, which features a 20 carat white diamond centrepiece, the model says she was a bit taken aback. "I wanted to scream," the Brazilian beauty said. "But I won't lie, I was really worried."
