Newsmound – The best of what you may have missed

Welcome the the Newsmound – our weekly look at the obscure entertainment news stories you might have missed. This week: Harry Potter’s Tom Felton and Emma Watson, Louis Walsh, Jedward and more.

    • Ahead of the release of the final Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Tom Felton has announced that he intends to pursue a hip-hop career. Yes really. Speaking to The Sun, he said: ‘I was thinking of doing some N-Dubz style stuff. I am looking to get into the grime rap UK scene.’ Well I think we can all agree we’re looking forward to that. More from NME.
    • Emma Watson hates her younger self. Or, more precisely, she feels embarrassed about her acting skills in the first few Potter movies: ‘It’s somewhat embarrassing to see myself go through all the awkward stages of growing up,’ she told the Daily Telegraph. So much time has passed and so much has happened that it seems that I don’t know her, but it’s interesting to see how the character has evolved and how much I have changed.’ More from 4Music.
    • Robbie Williams is trying to sort himself out so he can become a dad. Writing in his official blog, the Take That star explains that he’s trying to get over his crippling stage fright and social awkwardness: ‘I’m going to be a dad… maybe next year or the year after and I don’t want their dad to be emotionally inept, for my own well-being as well as theirs.’ More from 4Music.
    • Louis Walsh is set to call in Jedward to help him pick this year’s X Factor finalists. According to Holy Moly!, the horrific pop duo will join forces with Louis to help him choose the acts he’ll take through to the live shows in the autumn. Crikey. More from Holy Moly!
    • Actress Kate Hudson and Muse star Matt Bellamy have had their first child. It’s a boy – born on Saturday and weighing in at 7lb 12. We’ve no idea heavy that is, and so we wouldn’t like to comment. In the spirit of the occasion, however, we are willing to plant a tree; that’s how Hudson has asked her friends to congratulate the couple on their new birth. More from 3am.
    • Oh, and the News of the World is in a right pickle. Apparently.
