    - New details in Bieber murder plot

    New details have emerged in an alleged murder plot involving Justin Bieber.

    Audio recordings have been released of a conversation between a New Mexico inmate and one of the men allegedly involved - Tanner Ruane.

    The plan involved castrating the 18-year-old and his bodyguard, and then suffocating both of them with a scarf.

    Ruane and his uncle - also in on the plot - were arrested at the Vermont-Canadian border, before anything was carried out.

    The New Mexico inmate and his alleged mastermind is said to be obsessed with Bieber.

    - Kelly Clarkson and Clive Davis duke it out

    There is a war of words between music legend Clive Davis and singer Kelly Clarkson.

    Davis is currently out promoting his new book - "The Soundtrack of My Life" - which includes a chapter about the time the two worked together.

    Clarkson accuses Davis of bullying and inaccuracies in the book.

    In a statement, Davis says he stands by his writing.

    - Duchess of Cambridge shows off her "baby bump"

    For the first time since announcing her pregnancy, the Duchess of Cambridge is back in the spotlight, and showing off her baby bump.

    On Tuesday, the 31-year-old Duchess spoke at Action on Addiction - a South London charity of which she is a patron.

    She's four and half months pregnant.

    Meanwhile, one of Britain's most famous authors has launched a scathing attack against Kate. Hilary Mantel said the duchess had no personality and compared her to a mannequin in a store window.

    "Kate seems to have been selected for her role of princess because she was irreproachable: as painfully thin as anyone could wish, without quirks, without oddities, without the risk of the emergence of character," Mantel said.

    She made the comments during a lecture in January at the British Museum in London.
