Naomi Campbell's Russian billionaire boyfriend is so keen to have his loved one close to him that he has built her a house in Moscow. And not just any house. The building, located just outside the Russian city, features a futuristic style, and many believe it looks like a spaceship. The unusual house, which is dubbed Capital Hill, looks like it could be a tool to take over the universe, both on the exterior and the interior. Russian entrepreneur Vladislav Doronin has been dating the British supermodel since 2008, and reportedly plans to live in the mansion after they get married. With an estimated £1.5 billion fortune, the 46-year-old property tycoon has a penchant for high-living and beautiful women that has earned him the nickname of Moscow's Donald Trump. According to Gizmodo, the new futuristic house is designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, who specialises in ecostyle buildings and was also the brains behind famous buildings including the opera house in Guangzhou and the Olympics Aquatics Centre in London.

It features gigantic glass panels, smooth curves and extremely tall ceilings. The 2,650- square metre house will have many luxuries, including a Finnish spa in the basement, a Turkish bath and a Russian bath where the 42-year-old supermodel can pamper herself. Of course, it also has its own gym and indoor swimming pool that can reportedly turn into a dance floor should the couple want to entertain guests in the evenings. Two large white towers are situated on top of the building, about 20 metres above the ground, which are said to be the couple's bedroom.

'It's just a normal relationship!'

She's not the most conventional of women, but when it comes to her relationship, Lady Gaga is nothing if not normal. Gaga's boyfriend Taylor Kinney dispelled any rumours of anything bizarre in the romance as he opened up about the pair's relationship during an interview on The Today Show. Asked if it was strange to date someone like Gaga, Kinney, who was promoting his new TV show Chicago Fire, replied: "I don't know, because I don't have that outside view. It's normal, if you will, in that respect. I'm a happy guy. I'm a lucky guy."

Kinney also spoke about the fact that Gaga has been publicly supporting his new project, in which he stars as Lt Kelly Severide, by tweeting her love of the show. He said: "I was surprised. I think she's proud, you know, a girlfriend being proud of her boyfriend. She's been to the set a couple of times." However, Kinney said he does sometimes find it difficult to cope with the distance when Gaga goes on tour. But he joked: "She hasn't said anything, but she has a spaceship and she can get from A to B pretty quickly." Kinney also spoke about his role on Chicago Fire, which follows the events inside Firehouse 51.

Explaining that he trained with real firemen for the role, Kinney said he has a new-found respect for the profession. He said: "If you do get engulfed in flames even with the gear, the suits that these guys wear, you only have 18 seconds until you're toast. Getting to ride along with these guys ... it's that respect and adoration that you had for these men and women when you were a kid."

Rihanna's best friend Melissa Forde makes racist slur about Chris Brown's ex

Rihanna's best friend Melissa Forde has landed in hot water after making a racist slur against Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Melissa Forde defended her superstar pal against fans of Chris Brown's ex on Twitter. But she has reignited the war of words between the two camps after using the term 'rice cake' to describe Karruche, who is of Asian origin. Forde was telling a fan of Tran that it was okay not to like Rihanna but that she shouldn't insult her best friend before it all got a little too heated. In the Instagram rant, she wrote: "I get that you don't like my Bfff and trust you don't have to, cause the one thing you not liking us will do is stop anything from moving forward!! You can be rice cake's friend I don't give a f***, but keep up all this disrespectful talk and while your fake profile having azz is typing on Instagram MEE Melissa T Forde will be the one knocking on your door asking you to come talk face to face!"
