Rihanna
Veteran British singer Cliff Richard is eyeing an odd collaboration - he wants to team up with R&B star Rihanna.

The "Summer Holiday" hitmaker, who has previously sung with Elton John, is a fan of the "Umbrella" singer and is keen to collaborate with her.

He tells the Press Association, "Somebody asked me if I'd like to sing with Rihanna and I thought, 'Who wouldn't?' She looks fantastic, she's got a great voice, but in the case of duets, if it's feasible, it's always a matter of what the song is.

Lemmy
Motorhead rocker Lemmy has become the latest star to turn his attentions to wine-making - he's launched his own Shiraz.

The heavy metal musician piloted the beverage in Sweden last year, selling 120,000 bottles of the alcohol - and now he's set to sell it in the U.K.

Lemmy says the wine has been "hitting Scandinavia like a Lancaster bomber," but warns his fans: "Approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything could happen."

Ewen Cameron, from Great Wine Online, which will be selling the Shiraz in Britain, adds, "Just like Lemmy, it can survive just about anything."

On Monday, members of the European Union Council voted in favor of the "Saviour's Day" singer's proposal; however instead of 25 years they extended the copyright on sound recordings by 20 years.
