MONTREAL - Lord knows, nobody wants to go a whole day without getting some Adele news these days, so here you are:
The singer, brought up by her single mom in a small apartment over a discount store called This, That and the Other, has just moved into a 10-bedroom mansion on 25 acres in West Sussex, in the “stockbrokers’ belt” outside London. She’s renting the place, paying £15,000 ($23,600) a month.
Write if you get work: Remember Terry O’Quinn? No? How about if I say John Locke, on Lost? Yes, that Terry O’Quinn.

Quote of the day: Daniel Radcliffe tells about going to lunch with the parents of his girlfriend, Rosie Coker:
“I just met my girlfriend’s parents for the first time, but we are a little way off calling them my in-laws. It was a uniquely nerve-racking experience. She wasn’t there and I took them out for lunch. It was lovely, but at the end of it I did have to ask, ‘Have I passed?’ We are still going out, so I guess it was all okay.”
George Clooney told the Hollywood Reporter about a trick Brad Pitt played on him: “A couple of years ago … he did one of those (talk) shows and they asked him when he was going to marry Angie, and he said, ‘I’ll marry when George can legally marry (a man).’ ”
In the same interview Clooney takes his revenge, sort of, suggesting that Pitt’s best career choice now might be to try dinner theatre.
