Top 5 Picks from Around the Web

1. Can the most demanding diva known to man portray a plain Jane and make us believe it? Mariah Carey is flexing her acting muscles once again with a new film that will earn her a pat on the back for undergoing a fairly unattractive makeover (as Monster did for Charlize Theron). Mariah plays a humdrum social worker in Precious, who is assigned to an illiterate HIV-positive teen that has been impregnated twice by her father. Check out the trailer below and tell us if you think Carey can pull it off. (Ace Showbiz)

2. On the rocks? Tom Cruise is reportedly “NOT happy” about his wife’s bountiful career, as he wants another baby and he wants one now. The couple was in agreement to add to their brood once Katie Holmes‘ stint on Broadway was through, but then she signed up for The Extra Man, which left little time for baby-making. Now she is getting ready to shoot supernatural thriller Afraid of the Dark, and is angering Tom in the process. Is our favorite golden couple going the way of Sean Penn and Robin Wright? (The National Enquirer)

3. Kanye West‘s new leading lady, Amber Rose, got the shock of her life recently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Ball in New York. In between idle chitchat and cocktail-infused dancing, Madonna latched onto Amber‘s ample bum that could undoubtedly give J-Lo a run for her money. It was all in good fun and the young supermodel didn’t seem to mind. We were too distracted by Madge‘s outfit and Kiefer‘s headbutt to take notice! (Socialite Life)

4. Slumdog child actor Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail received a rude awakening – literally – on Thursday when his home was flattened by bulldozers. He and the rest of his family were asleep in their beds when an overly aggressive police officer prodded the boy and told him to leave his home immediately. The insufficient shack – along with 30 others just like it – was then destroyed by the Indian government as they were constructed illegally, or so the story goes. Supposedly the authorities are planning to put the family up in a new home, though Ismail‘s mother has little hope. Where’s Victoria BeckhamDanny Boyle when you need him? (Omg!)

5. The same outfit in a two-week span? Gasp! Victoria Beckham is clearly a fan of recycling, judging by her Loewe-cap-leather-jacket ensemble. The woman who relishes in showing off the fruits of her bottomless bank account labor sported that exact look at the beginning of the month, and again yesterday while she strolled through Heathrow airport. We never thought we’d see the day when Victoria would commit such a major fashion faux pas. Is the recession finally hitting? (Daily Mail)
