The Dredge: Westlife's Shane Filan shares his holiday snaps

He met a dog in sunglasses. All the very best of the day’s celebrity dirt…

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#FILAN GROOVY: Shane Filan out of Westlife is trying to kick-start his solo career with a debut single. And he’s only gone to Hollywood to film the video.

His trip has been pretty epic so far, according to his holiday snaps. While there, he made a new friend:

Is it just us, or does the dog look kind of like Brian McFadden?

Anyway, Shane has now wrapped filming on the video, which according to the Irish Mirror has a “huge budget”. But deep down, he’s still just a star-struck Sligo kid in the City of Angels.

He’s been sharing his trip on Instagram. Highlights so far include Shane staring longingly at the Capitol Records building:

And Shane staring longingly at a star on Hollywood Boulevard:


Go get ‘em Shane!

#DADYE WEST: You’d expect Kanye West to celebrate Father’s Day in style. And naturally, new mammy Kim Kardashian got him a present.


Yes, it’s two Mac mice signed by Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Does anyone remember those mice? They were horrible to use.

We’re assuming this is related to Yeezy’s recent declaration that:

I am undoubtedly, you know, [the] Steve [Jobs] of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump.

#LADY MUCK: Cheryl Cole is now officially a posho aristocrat. She’s become Lady Cheryl Cole thanks to Simon Cowell, who got her a slice of land in the Scottish Highlands with attached title as a 30th birthday present. (The Sun)

We’re presuming that means Chezza is going to be rubbing shoulders with tweed-clad old-money types at society dos. Well, she’s come a long way.

Remember Old Cheryl?

Now, Cheryl, you start at the outside of the cutlery and work in. (EMPICS Entertainment)

#PALS: Rihanna met Jennifer Lawrence in Paris and they palled around together.

Just imagine how much fun that would be. IMAGINE.


And the rest of the day’s dirt…
