Natalie Portman and Devendra Banhart have been seen walking together through New York City streets. This rugged, bearded singer-song writer was born in Texas, raised in Venezuela and lives in San Francisco. Natalie and Devendra met when filming one of Banhart's music videos, starring Portman.
Devendra's hippy folk music is easy to listen to and sends good messages. His scruffy, grungy appearance is not exactly what you would expect innocent Natalie to be attracted to, but that just makes the couple all the more adorable!

Victoria Beckham's denim line is being discontinued at Fred Segal and Kitson. The fact that she has a clothing line; dVb, may come as a surprise to many given that she has done basically no promotion, Beckham hardly wears jeans to begin with.
Posh's DVB denim range is being dropped due to poor sales and a lack of promo work from the Spice Girl herself. "We asked her PR people so many times for her to appear but she didn't," said Kitson owner, Fraser Ross. "Celebrity lines are no different from an album or music tour. They have to be promoted to sell."
Marilyn Monroe made a sex tape that was classified by the FBI. It was just sold to a collector for $1.5 million dollars. The tape depicts Monroe having oral sex with an unidentified man.
The footage appears to have been shot in the 1950s. When it came to light in the mid-'60s, then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had his agents spend two weeks futilely trying to prove that Monroe's sex partner was either John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy, according to declassified agency documents and interviews, Morgan said.
The silent black-and-white flick shows Monroe on her knees in front of a man whose face is just out of the shot.

Naomi Campbell allegedly spat at a cop after a fight over her luggage at an airport. According to The Sun,
Naomi first kicked off in BA's first class lounge after being told that one of her three bags had not made it onto the flight. Despite apologies and assurances she would be reunited with her luggage, the temperamental supermodel flew into a rage.
She began harassing airline staff who called cops as the flight was called and Naomi walked onto the plane. She was still yelling at boarding card staff as she took her seat. Three officers from the MET's SO18 Aviation security branch then came onto the plane. They tried to calm the model down, but she is alleged to have reacted by spitting at an officer and then laying into him with her fists.

It is a fascinating challenge to work with H&M since it is a chance to take the dilemma to its extreme, and try to solve it."
