Myleene Klass wanted to ”be like Madonna” when she divorced Graham Quinn.

The 42-year-old singer ended her relationship to Graham in 2013 after two years of marriage, and has said she looked up to the ‘Like A Virgin’ hitmaker because of how ”happy” she seemed to be following her divorce from ex-husbands Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie.

Myleene – who has daughters Ava, 12, and Hero, nine, with Graham – said: ”I thought I was going to be like Madonna. I don’t know who I think I am.

”But she seems to just have a really happy life and her daughter seems balanced and she doesn’t seem like she’s tied to anybody and she just keeps working.”

And the former Hear’Say singer admitted she is definitely ”less of a people-pleaser” since getting divorced, but still isn’t as ”unapologetic” as her role model.

She told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: ”I’m less of a people-pleaser since I got divorced because I realised the people who genuinely are there for me.

”[I did] the quickest cull of my Christmas card list you ever did see, and it was brilliant. So if you are going to look for the silver lining  . . .

”Madonna is unapologetic so I thought she had a good blueprint. The problem is, I’m not Madonna.”

Meanwhile, Myleene recently said she thought she’d ”be a single mum forever” following her divorce, before she found love again with Simon Motson.

The TV presenter and Simon welcomed their son Apollo into the world 11 months ago, and the beauty said expanding their family has been a ”massive” change for everyone.

She explained: ”This is new for all of us, there’s been massive changes in my life. I thought I was going to be a single mum forever.

”The first shock of being a single mum was horrible. It’s not a blueprint I recognised, when I got into the role of a single mum, I had the fear of, ‘How am I ever not going to be a single mum?’ I really like how this flows.

”I really love me and my girls, it feels like it’s us against the world. I love that we go everywhere together, I love that they’re my three amigos, it’s a really lovely feeling.”

The TV host reportedly ‘didn’t hold anything back’ in her monologue in the premiere episode of her show, which is slated to return on Monday following toxic workplace allegations.

Ellen DeGeneres reportedly will be completely honest about toxic workplace allegations when she kicks off upcoming season 18 of her talk show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show“. According to a new report, the TV host “didn’t hold anything back” in her monologue in the premiere on Monday, September 21.

“It was poignant and funny and very much a candid take on what happened over the summer,” said a source to PEOPLE of Ellen’s monologue. “She understands her audience wants to hear from her and is looking forward to talking directly to them on Monday.”

“Ellen has come away from this reinvigorated and devoted to working hand-in-hand with the staff to bring joy and humor to the fans,” the source continued. “Ellen is excited to be back on set and wants this to be the best season yet.”

It was also said that Ellen was “connecting with the staff over Zoom.” The insider went on to claim that the host “knows that it’s on her to make sure everyone feels like they’re being heard and valued.”

Her wife Portia de Rossi was also there to offer Ellen an emotional support during the filming of the premiere episode. Noting that it was “an emotional moment for everyone,” the informant added the crew applauded when the host walked off the set as “she thanked everyone.”

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was initially slated to return on September 9, but it was delayed following mounting allegations about toxic workplace leveled against the show. That prompted Warner Bros. to launch an internal investigation in July.

It concluded in August with Ellen sharing the results to her 270 employees in an emotional video conference during which she apologized. At the time, Ellen also revealed that three top producers, Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and Jonathan Norman, departed the show.

Perrie Edwards | Perrie Edwards wishes social media ‘never existed’

Perrie Edwards wishes that social media ”never existed”.

The 27-year-old Little Mix singer feels that the downsides of sites such as Twitter and Instagram outweigh the positives and wouldn’t care if the sites weren’t available.

She told BBC Breakfast: ”There isn’t too much about it that’s decent. I just wish it never existed.”

Perrie – who performs in the band alongside Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall – also revealed that she feels a sense of guilt if she doesn’t keep fans updated with what’s happening with the band.

She said: ”I feel guilty when I don’t post enough. I feel bad for our fans that do want to see us post. It’s trying to find a balance.”

Jade, 27, described social media as both ”a blessing and a curse” for the group and revealed that she stops herself from checking her phone when she wakes up.

She explained: ”When I wake up I’ve got a little ban on my phone so I can’t get on it past 10 am. It’s actually really good because then you’re not obsessed over it. Social media is a blessing and a curse. For us it’s such a big platform and hugely beneficial. ”

Jesy – who has been open about her experiences at the hands of cruel online trolls – feels that the group are ”a lot better” with social media than in the past.

The 29-year-old singer said: ”I think we’re a lot better with social media than what we used to be. I think we’re not on it as much as we used to be, we’re not as obsessed with it. I can’t be on it all the time because I know, for me, mentally it’s not good. I admire people who don’t have social media. I think it’s so refreshing when I meet people that don’t have it.”

Ronnie Wood Gets Candid About Reason Behind His Sobriety in New Documentary

The Rolling Stones member opens up about the moment he realized it was time to get clean, while his bandmate Mick Jagger talks in ‘Somebody Up There Likes Me’ about the guitarist’s initial struggles.

AceShowbiz
Ronnie Wood vowed to get clean and give up drugs and booze after realising his vices were turning him into an unpleasant, “sour person”.

The Rolling Stones star gets candid about his addiction and sobriety in new documentary “Somebody Up There Likes Me (2020)“, which chronicles the guitarist’s amazing life and career, and reveals one last bender made him realise it was time to quit – and get help.

“Nothing was working,” he says in the film. “The coke wasn’t working. The drink wasn’t working. (I) tried one more to see if I could cut through it and I turned into this sour person. I thought, ‘This is not me’. Took the brave move again, but this time for myself, to try and abstain and clean up my act.”


Bandmate Mick Jagger admits Wood struggled with sobriety at first – but really wanted to get clean.

“It’s really hard to do,” the singer says in the film, “but he knew that he wanted to do it, which is obviously part of the thing. If you don’t want to do it, it’s really impossible. But he wanted to do it and found it really difficult to do.”

The Mike Figgis-directed documentary is now available digitally in many territories and Wood reveals the title came from the phrase he used after cancer surgery added years to his life.

“When they operated on my cancer, they took away my emphysema,” he says in the film. “They said my lungs were as if I’d never smoked. I thought…, ‘Somebody up there likes me!'”
