Top 5 Picks from Around the Web

The Beckhams1. Last week actor Nicolas Cage was forced to forfeit his lavish Bavarian castle, and this week the Beckhams met a similar fate. The smoldering couple had their heart set on Castle Sforzesco (located in Milan) and was this close to snapping it up when the authorities pulled the plug. Why? Because they don’t fancy “selling a piece of Italian heritage,” since the castle is actually a famed museum. David and Victoria Beckham planned to keep the historical site open for business while treating it as a family home at the same time, but the powers that be just aren’t havin’ it. The poor dears!

2. Often-harsh critiquer Simon Cowell is thinking of ditching American Idol once his contract expires next season. Shuffling between three different jobs – U.K.’s The X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and of course AI – has been a bit taxing on the 49-year-old razor sharp judge. But how will we ever survive without the scathing comments and ballsy bluntness? (The New York Post)

3. Though Madonna was denied permission to adopt little Mercy James from Malawi earlier this month, she is refusing to give up. Besides filing an appeal she has released a public plea in the hopes of turning this highly-publicized situation around:

“I want to provide Mercy with a home, a loving family environment and the best education and healthcare possible,” Madonna stated in an e-mail to Malawi’s Nation paper. “And it’s my hope that she, like David, will one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country.”

We just knew the tough-as-nails Pop queen wouldn’t take this lying down! (Celebitchy)

4. After her messy split from longtime GF Samantha Ronson, Lindsay Lohan is in need of a mega TLC fix. The actress was spotted with a bizarre blue bottle – called Neuro Bliss – tucked under her arm. The chemical concoction is meant to induce relaxation, boost brain activity and “provide a sense of well-being.” Sounds harmless enough, unless this is another one of LiLo‘s decoys — remember the days of translucent liquor in water or soda bottles? (TMZ)

5. Baby on the way? Actress Brittany Murphy has decided to skip the whole let’s try a puppy first and see how things go tactic as she is wishing to jump straight into parenthood.

“I never needed a puppy to inspire me to thoughts of having children,” she revealed to OK! Magazine. “I hope to have a few. I’ve always loved kids and babies and always wanted to be a mom.”

Murphy was also quick to add that she and husband Simon Monjack will hopefully be trying for a baby soon. Keep your eyes peeled for a hint of a bump in the coming months! (Celebrity Baby Blog)
