Heart-breaking farewells were said today by close family members and friends at the private funeral of musical legend Robin Gibb.

Robin who is best known as a member of the hugely successful ‘Bee Gees‘ sadly lost his battle with cancer last month at the age of 62. His legacy for the world however will be the songs he has left behind that have touched the hearts of so many.

Paying their respects today were his family including brother Barry Gibb, his wife Dwina and son RJ.

Robin’s successes over the last six decades pay tribute to his incredible and indelible talent. Not only was he singer and songwriter, he also played the piano,guitar,bass and violin.

His contributions have not gone unrecognized or unrewarded however, for example he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame at the Grammy Museum in 1994, and in 2002 he was made Commander of the Order of the British Empire along with is brothers Maurice and Barry.

Robin, alongside his brothers, helped the Bee Gees became one of the most successful pop groups of all time with hits such as Night Fever, Stayin’ Alive, Jive Talkin’ and How Deep Is Your Love.

Although the service today was a private and intimate affair, fans will reportedly be able to honor Robin at a public memorial expected to be held at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral in September.

MTV Movie Awards

The 2012 MTV Movie Awards were held last night at the Gibson Amphitheater in LA. Hosted by the controversial Russell Brand, the night was full of fun and laughter while the red carpet was full of all the talent, some who went on to win awards.

This year saw one new addition to the awards show, the first ever live social voting category for Best Hero, which was won by “Harry Potter”.

Harry Potter also picked up “Best Cast” award which the lovely Emma Watson made an acceptance speech for. She was so cute! You can watch all the speeches here.

MTV Generation Winner went to Johnny Depp which was well deserved in our eyes and Movie Of The Year went to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.

Guys Choice Awards

Mila Kunis, Julianne Hough and Kendra Wilkinson were amongst the celebs who turned out for Spike TV’s 2012 “Guys Choice” Awards held at Sony Studios in Los Angeles,

Hough’s Rock Of Ages co-star, Malkin Akerman, was also on hand and the duo both sported black dresses, which appears to have been a theme for much of the night.

I know the red carpet was all about the ladies but the awards themselves are all about the dudes. Where else other than Guys Choice would you find a category entitled “Best Ass Kicker”? Yep that’s actually one of the awards! Other categories include Holy Grail Of Hot and Best Fight Scene.

Guys Choice airs June 9th.

Glamour Women of the Year Awards

The stars got gorgeous for the annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens in London last night.

Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, Naomi Watts, David Furnish, Jessie J and Kylie Minogue all graced the carpet.

Jessie J recently said she was bored of her image and at this event she certainly changed it up with an unusual and very flattering LBD. I guess you could call it 1920’s style? Her hair and makeup made a perfect match for the outfit too. In my book she should take home the glamazon award for sure!

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Heat Up Cannes

Cannes just got a little warmer by all accounts. Kristen Stewart was on fire in a stunning red gown that completely stole all the attention on the carpet for her boyfriend’s movie Cosmopolis!

While I must admit that Robert Pattinson did look very dashing, all eyes (male at least) were glued to his girlfriend.

Kristen has said she’s “dying to make another movie” with the Robert (no pun intended) so who knows, we may get to see the Twilight duo in something else soon!

Brad Pitt Is Killing Them Softly In Cannes

Brad Pitt was the main attraction today at the Killing Them Softly red carpet call at the 65 Festival De Cannes.

Yeah I thought I would say it in French this time, it sounds waaaaay cooler!

Nestled amongst his co-stars Ray Liotta and Dede Gardner, Pitt looked uber cool in his Tux and shades, but then when doesn’t he?

The movie sees Pitt in the lead role as Jackie Coogan, a hit-man, and is based on the 1974 novel. Pitt was quizzed today during an earlier press conference about the violent content in the film but he kept his calm answering all the questions. He explained that he didn’t find the filming uncomfortable as “We live in such a violent world”.

But enough of that, I know what you all want to know. Did he dish any details about impending nuptials. He was a bit more tight lipped on that topic but did say, “We have no date. We actually really, truly have no date”.

Ok Brad and Angie, we believe you, just don’t forget my wedding invite when you do decide.

Hunger Games Josh Hutcherson Buys The Tree House

Josh Hutcherson is spending some of his Hunger Games money on a gorgeous new home in the Hollywood Hills. Known as The Tree House, the stunning property has 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom and in my humble opinion is just lovely!

The actor paid $2.5m for the unusual home and although it’s relatively modest by celebrity standards, it’s just 1,861 square feet, it also boasts 2,500 square feet of seamless outdoor living space that includes a movie lounge, dining/barbecue space and multiple seating areas perched in the trees.

Inside, the home has polished concrete floors, over-sized glass doors, a sleek galley kitchen with wood-beamed ceiling and clerestory windows with wood-framed glass doors. The living room features a fireplace and a pitched wood ceiling and the dining room includes a vaulted wood-beamed ceiling with glass doors merging the exterior and interior spaces.

The home has a rich history of celebrity ownership too. Built in 1951, the house was once included in property gatherer Ellen DeGeneres’ portfolio and was also home to the late Heath Ledger and then girlfriend Michelle Williams.
