Flea Diva watch

The Immaterial Girl has reportedly gone round the twist (and this coming from a blogger who refers to his secret-identity in the third person):

Pals of Madonna's tell us that the Kabbalah-lovin' singer has instructed her close pals to use her "Jewish" name "Esther" when addressing her. "She is really into it," one friend said.

Elsewhere in London, Victoria Beckham's producer makes the improbable claim he will remake Posh as a rap artist:

New Yorker Damon denied he only decided to work with Posh because of her superstar status in the UK, revealing he had never heard of her before they met. He admitted: “I didn’t know who she was. NAOMI CAMPBELL said I should meet her. She explained who she was.”

And completing this Flea Diva round-up is a much blogged-about Christina Ricci phobia. For those who missed it, she is afraid of house-plants (and, sadly, ghosts):

"They are dirrrty. If I have to touch one, after already being repulsed by the fact that there is a plant indoors, then it just freaks me out."

Funny that. The Flea has different associations with dirrrty-ness.
