The Black Swan Needs Eggs!: Pregnant Natalie Portman is giving up her vegan ways while she’s got a baby on board. “I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff,” the Oscar winner said during an interview on Atlanta’s Q100 Bert Show on Monday. “I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff… I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful, watch your iron levels and your B12 levels and supplement those if there are things you might be low in your diet.” Adding, “If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you want to eat. I actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile.”
RiRi Wants To Spank Brit!: Rihanna and Britney have teamed up for a new duet remix of “S&M” and Rihanna is hoping to make a video with her fellow pop star. “I hope [we do a video for the song]. I want to spank Britney,” Rihanna joked during an interview on the “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” on New York’s Z100 on Monday. The pop star was happy to team up with another female pop powerhouse. “It was really amazing that she really wanted to be part of this song. She really liked the song to begin with, but it was a different story when she had to sing it, and she really wanted to be a part of it. It made it really special, because you never see two pop female artists doing songs together anymore. Just call us R&B,” she added. Listen to the new “S&M” remix, HERE!
